This restaurant is highly rated, but we found it to be just okay. Our waiter, however, was very attentive.
We had a blast......celebrated my sister's bday. The bartender made an awesome drink, just for me! It was soooo yummy!
Very tasty fish and chips! Also loved the Shrimp Louis salad.
Mediocre food given the steep price. For $30-$40/plate expect MUCH better.
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!
I really enjoyed myself! The service was excellent, I made reservations for 5, and when I arrived my table, and the server were right on point! Food was excellent!!!
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.
Had crab cakes and the grilled Mahi Mahi special. Both very tasty.
Great place. Food was very good. Service was attentive and kind. Very good experience. Will return.
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.
Great place and outstanding food!
We went for Valentine's Day and it was perfect. The rockfish and salmon were fantastic. Best cream corn ever. The crab cakes were amazing. Love the Navy Grog. Enjoy Rock 'n Fish on normal days, but had an even better time on date night.
Great as usual. I do recommend the rib-eye and the oysters.
A warm welcome for 6 colleagues for lunch.. service friendly, attentive, memorable. Food very tasty but some portions seemed small compared to others. Very enjoyable time& would return.
Everything was great including the service and ability to substitute, but a bit noisy.
Always great food and service. Our go to place for special occasions.
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
Will return. Very interested in trying more flavors on the menu.
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!
Excellent service and great food.
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.
Rock'N Fish has been my "GO TO" for 10 years now. 100% of the time when I visited LA, I made it a point to visit Rock'N Fish, and most often I brought a group of people. I've brought no less than 50 people to this restaurant over the years who were all new to experience it. However, after the last 2 experiences we will look elsewhere next time we are in the area.
Our server was fantastic but as a party of 6, three people ordered steak. All 3 were overcooked and sent back. In the 30 times that I've been there, I've ordered New Orleans BBQ Shrimp 100% of the time. The last time I was there, the rice was not fully cooked. During this most recent visit the whole dish was just thrown together .. the shrimp were not standing or arranged around the perimeter as in all the years past. The presentation was very sloppy.
Something has happened to the food quality over the past year or two. It seems there is no attention to detail.
I've always enjoyed Rock'N Fish, but we will try someplace else next time. I was embarrassed this visit that 3 of my colleagues had to send their food back, and others were just average. I'll be back at some point, but it's time to take a break and experience some of the other nearby restaurants.
Started with the Navy Grog - my favorite - has a floater of dark brown rum on the top. We chose the special LA Restaurant Week Menu - two courses $20 - a great deal. The grilled artichoke was great and followed that with the Hibachi teriyaki beef and veggies on a stick, with sautéed spinach and jasmine rice. A great meal, especially for the price.
We always love every meal that we have at Rock N Fish. It is our go-to for any special occasion or date. The food, service and environment is always perfect!
Very good food. Our waitress was outstanding. The prices are a bit high. The bar is cramped.
We were there for a birthday, they had run out of a few options. The server seemed like she may have had too many tables to serve as she always seemed flustered, but she worked hard, just didn’t see that each table got the same level of service.
Food was amazing ! Thank you for the special birthday dessert at the end for our Son! So nice and it was so delicious!!! We are regulars and love Rock N Fish !!!
Mediocre at best. The portion of Ahi Tuna was very small for the price, and was over cooked. Definitely not a great experience.
My husband and I came up to Manhattan Beach to visit our son and we ended up having lunch at Rock N Fish. It was Sunday at 1 pm and the restaurant was cranking! We had a reservation, several people were waiting for a table but they didn't seem to mind. Guests were coming and going the entire time we were there. Definitely a local crowd with families but plenty of tourists mixed in. We all three had the fish tacos with different sides. We all enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. The menu is unique with a variety of health options. My only negative was none of their salads were a "lettuce" based salad. I would definitely like to see that added. Other than that the atmosphere was fun and we will be back again!
A good local flair place to bring an out of town guest - short walk to the pier - shrimp Louie salad a favorite!
The seating atmosphere was vibreant. The seating was roomy for a crowded restaurant. We were served promptly. Everyone really liked their dinner. The waitress was totally attentive and really friendly. The wine pours were generous and the wines by the glass were good. We are going again!
Absolute nice people. Outstanding food. Those green beans are out of this world.
Everything we ordered was delicious: grilled artichoke, steamers, shrimp scampi, Cioppino, drinks. Service was excellent. Fun place. Priced accordingly for a seafood place right near the Manhattan Beach pier. We’ll be back!
I love this restaurant at holiday time - it is festive and food is delicious!
Sandwich bread was burnt. No replacement was offered.
This was a pleasant dining experience, the seafood selection was decent, and the server nicely accommodated tweaks to the preparation that suited our needs. The calamari appetizer was a nice sized portion and the fish tacos were fresh and tasty. Staff were friendly. My only gripe was we visited during the holiday season and parking was a bear.
Service and food was great! Parking is usually a problem but it wasn’t that night.
Great food and the service was great. We had a party of seven for an engagement party and the ciopino was amazing. If you are looking for a great place to take the wife out on a date, take her here
Came with family who was visiting from out of town. Everyone enjoyed the food and appreciated the kind, warm and overall exceptional service. Also can’t beat the amazing location right by the Manhattan Beach pier. We had a wonderful time and will definitely return.
I booked RockNFish for my boyfriend's birthday and we definitely enjoyed ourselves. Our server Alex was very vibrant,personable, & well-informed on the menu. We were seated upstairs above the bar and although there wasn't a view , it was still romantic. If I must suggest anything, I'd highly recommend the clam chowder and the petit lobster tails paired with the mac and asparagus. Oh and the bread pudding!!!
