The only thing wrong a little noisy but loved food and atmosphere
We came here for brunch to celebrate our anniversary. The food and the service was amazing! We had a table with a great view. I enjoyed the watermelon cocktail!
Nice place really enjoyed it. A bit crowded and noisy for romantic time but overall very nice.
Over priced food very small portions and rude waiters
Great view & ambience. Pleasant & efficient service. Food is good.
food cold no TASTE........OVER PRICED better off at taco bell or street bacon wrapped hot dog after the kings play
I came to have a Valentine’s Day dinner and let me say I was unsatisfied. I thought that the food was very mediocre, I’m a person who comes to the Strand House often and I just thought that for the portion size and for what we were getting it wasn’t worth it. I also thought adding a 20% tip wasn’t fair to a bill of two people
Great restaurant with really caring staff. The food was amazing and it ended up being a wonderful Valentine’s Day spot :)
Simply delicious. The perfect Valentine's Day meal. Sure it was expensive, but we left feeling like we got our money's worth. The food here seems to be getting better and better.
Extremely overpriced.. terrible food
Excellent waiter, I’m so sorry I don’t remember his name. He was perfect. Food and our view was excellent.
Upstairs dining room that's accessed by some elegant front lighted stairs. Ocean view from the dining room adds to ambience. Overall, a very pleasant dining experience that I'd recommend.
Great service. Our waitress was very attentive and informative. Food tasted great. We had the grilled octopus to start and it was fantastic. For dinner had the truffle branzino was lamb chops both tasted spectacular!
Fabulous meal with the added bonus of watching a gorgeous sunset! Perfect ambience to impress a new client, and the waiter, Kenny, was attentive and friendly.
The food was good but not exceptional. The service was efficient and all orders were accurate. However, our male waiter (name unknown) acted apathetic and very impersonal. After I gave him a 15% tip, more than I felt he deserved, he seemed disturbed and left without saying a word.
Food was delicious. Great service and selection of entrees.
Great experience and service
Girls get together. Delicious food & drink & view. The grilled chicken salad was outstanding. Perfect ingredient to dressing ratio. Just delicious. And very professional & friendly female. server. Thank you.
This was our first time trying The Strand House. And we were not disappointed. The service and food was outstanding. Would highly recommend!
Everything was efficient, professional, and smooth, except for one key element, our server. Jeremy S. My wife and I both commented that he was grumpy. He only cracked a smile when he hovered over me and I selected a 20% gratuity. I almost always do that, but considering the size of the bill, he didn earn $40 plus bucks. Otherwise, The Strand is excellent, and the service is too. Just think management should be aware.
great assortment of dishes, something for everyone
The strand is an awesome restaurant. Great date night spot. Food was great. Drinks were great. Service great. Overall wonderful experience.
The Strand House has an amazing multi-level design. I love the location. You look right out into Manhattan Beach. All of the waitstaff is kind and attentive. I really enjoyed the menu. Many fun options. The wine list is impressive as well. I enjoyed dinner with my family. Everyone appeared to enjoyed themselves. They thanked me for recommending the Strand to them.
Nice ambiance, fairly good service, food excellent
Start to finish excellent. If you have an occasion this is a cant lose. Service and food are 5 star. Loved it
Absolutely excellent. GM Michael Morrisset is tops. Water Jeremy does a great job. Food was excellent. View of ocean on a wild day for waves was grat. Very relaxing.
All aspects of our meal were great. The seafood dishes were excellent. The donuts and ice cream were spectacular. We will definitely return if we are ever in LA again.
Staff was great taking good care of our table, which was a large group. Thank you for the great service!
Great ocean views (from raised booth), good food and service.
Came here for my girlfriends birthday and we absolutely loved it. From the little details like the menu printed saying happy birthday to the excellent cocktails. The service was very top notch. Food was great and just how the server described it. Overall, would recommend to a friend.
This is a great Resturant. The food, service, and ambiance are excellent. It has a magnificent view of the ocean and the sunset.
Great as ever
Beautiful place, but that’s pretty much what you’re paying for. We don’t mind splurging for special date nights. When we do, we expect the food to be amazing and this was not the case at all. Honestly, it was a bit bland. Our server was sweet but didn’t seem to pay much attention to us. It was nice that they did a special little birthday treat at the end. This place was the low point on our stay-cation and it was suppose to be the high point.
Had a fabulous birthday dinner the other night. The service is impecable, the food is amazing, the view couldn't be better (no other restaurant in Manhattan Beach has this view!), and we just had an overall amazing dinner experience.
CHASE was terrific. Thanks for making this dinner a special one, Chase, and thanks for your recommendations—such as the quail—that added to the overall superb experience. Autumn and I will be back. —Nick
The food and service was exceptional. We would definitely go back.
Unbeatable view from almost every table. The food was decent, service was friendly and the drinks were great. I would definitely recommend The Strand House.
Very romantic spot on Manhattan Beach with a view of the pier and ocean. There is outdoor seating as well as nice windows for sunset dinners. Food is excellent as well as the service. They were very attentive to our gluten sensitivities. It is a bit pricey, and can be loud at corner tables. Make sure to make reservations.
The best view in Manhattan Beach with food, drink & service to match. Everything done to perfection. Especially enjoyed the charred octopus appetizer, gnocchi with sausage appetizer, branzino, scallop entrees & donut dessert. Our waiter Kenny was great and provided excellent suggestions.
