Very nice restaurant with walking distance to beautiful Manhattan Beach pier. We loved it! We were staying in El Segundo- it was 15 minutes away from our hotel which was helpful. Not far at all.

Food and dining experience was good, but I expected better service having visited this restaurant several times in the past couple years. The service was not attentive despite a regular weeknight crowd. A lapse of 20 minutes between visits or inquiries between ordering drinks and dining courses is a bit extreme. The ability to obtain a check was challenging as well. However, the kitchen delivered with well prepared seafood appetizers and main courses consisting of the house specialty halibut, and the standby gumbo.

Food was great. Server was really busy and took a bit to get to us. However, still very professional and helped us "customize" our meal. We were on a low carb diet. Overall, this restaurant is solid.

I used to love rock n fish 3 years ago it was one of the coolest bars to go out in Manhattan Beach before a night of partying with your friends. The food used to be awesome but I'm sad to say last time that I went there a week ago the jambalaya but she used to be my favorite they replaced all of the fresh seafood with what look like cheap store-bought ingredients they used to have large muscles in large shrimp I brag to my friend about how great it was and we were both let down I will never get that dish again and I'm thinking twice before possibly even going back to rock n fish so I hope they read this and improve their menu back to the Glory Days when they were a special restaurant.

Our family loves coming to Rock N Fish and we give their gift cards as gifts to friends. The Louisiana style rock fish entree and the brussel sprout sides did not taste good. With so much competition out there, this needs improvements. The linguini del mar was amazing! It needed more as far as more portions...its on the small side. The crab cake appetizer was really good as well.

Short wait for a table although we did have a reservation. Server was helpful and enthusiastic in recommendations. Everyone was very happy with their dinner choice. Oysters on the half shell were excellent. Wine choice was wonderful. All in all, it entire experience was great. Can't wait to return!

We have been going to this place for years. Our last dining experience was disappointing. My husband ordered the surf and turf. His steak came out with no lobster. We needed to inform the waitress regarding this. She did apologize and brought it out after our meal was mostly over. No offer to make it right except for an apology.

We were very impressed with the service. The restaurant was a few minutes late seating us for our reservation. Though it was not long, and we were not unset they gave us free calamari as an apology. All of the food we had was excellent. My husband was especially happy with his jambalaya. We would go again though it was very loud for conversation.

Felt welcome from greeting at the front desk all the way through. Sat at the bar for a few minutes just for fun, had a great and engaging bartender. seated at the outdoor patio under ample heaters. Our server was right on with her recommendations and descriptions of the menu options. Highly recommend the N.O. Shrimp if you like spicy and the crusted fish if you don.t

I was a bit apprehensive that this would be too noisy, too young and too casual. It was some of those things but really a terrific and fun spot. Our food was delicious, try the salmon, and our waitress was outstanding. It was a warm Saturday night and we had a lovely window table. It was noisy but really it was fun and appropriate. I will definitely be back.
Be sure to get the green beans!

No matter how many times we go here, we always LOVE the food & drinks. The service is outstanding too. We took out-of-town family for dinner, and all 5 of us were very happy with our order - even the ultra picky people in our party.
