Great date night. Fanatastuc Server. Great food. Wonderful view of the ocean!
Seafood tower is a must! It has amazing ceviche and oysters!
Impeccable! Worth the drive from Orange County!
We were lucky enough to be seated at the window, ocean side. The view was spectacular. Our server, Francisco (?) we engaging and knowledgeable. I had the best filet I have ever had - perfectly cooked (which is difficult to keep some red in MW). I recommend this to anyone - local or visitor
Great service. Wonderful food. Excellent view/location
Good food - Our waiter John did a great job
We want to go back and try different things on the menu.
Cocktails were good!!!!
Service was a bit slow
Very good food. Efficient service. Modern restaurant but very noisy.
Excellent food and service. Very professional place.
They made our 10 year anniversary so special! Serve and food was amazing!
This is a really good place. It’s gotten better over the past couple of years. They’ve worked out the kinks. Food is excellent.
A couple of things. When they bring the check it’s on one of those machines where they ring it at the table and then hand it to you and ask you to add the tip. It calculates the tip and figures it off total amount including the tax. I don’t like that. It puts pressure on the customer and doesn’t really give them time to figure that out. Also I dont like handling a machine that’s being touched by all these other people Finally I was wearing a white sweater and the server touched my shoulder to get my attention. No bueno! She could have food on her hands and it’s a bit of an intrusion and provoked anxiety. I’m just saying.....
But food is really good and setting and service is generally quite good.
We enjoy the food and the service. A bit noisy but does not keep us away.
Superb view and remarkable service! The cinnamon rolls are amazing. The veggie quiche...divine. We sampled a bit of everything from the brunch menu and it was spectacular!
Excellent food, excellent service, beautiful location. Went there twice in a row!
We did a birthday brunch on Sunday and it was fantastic. The waiter was fabulous and very attentive. We enjoyed the signature Bellini, Mimosas, and Bubbles. I would definitely return again for a family, friend or group function. Make sure you make reservations in advance.
Birthday celebration with the best view in town! Excellent food and service.
Amazing attention to details, the team made our evening very special! Great job!!
Wonderful view and food
The food was good and the service was GREAT, but it was expensive and very loud - too loud to carry on a conversation. I wouldn't go again on a weekend night - maybe it's quieter during the week?
4.5 STRONG stars. The service is very good, as well as the food quality. We were late for our reservation, and we were still seated immediately, window side. We happened to be for a special occasion, and waiter asked brought a special treat after dinner... totally unexpected as it was a REAL dessert from their menu. I will happily dine there again.
Scheduled for a business lunch with someone from Chicago. Thought the location would provide a good example of why we all live in Southern California. Good location and excellent service.
Server was awesome I think his name was Francisco
To much noice but a fantastic place with amazing food. A bit cold though. We didn’t know about the big open window section in the end of the room making a wind come in. But great place :)
Food was really good! No complaints at all. Will definitely visit again!
Great view, ambiance & bar selection.
Just a wonderful experience overall. Amazing food and everything you would want for great night out.
They made it so special and personalized everything for our anniversary down to the menu! It was awesome
Our server (Jeremy S) was extremely rude to my girlfriend and I. He has no personality, he isn’t attentive in the slightest & he tossed the check on the table, hit my drink and kept walking... I’m not sure what the issue was however, if I go back, I do not want to be served by him.
I scheduled a special work lunch for my bosses 40th birthday. I requested a table with a great view. Strand House did not disappoint! Not only did we have one of the best tables with the best views, they printed Happy Birthday on the top of our menus! It was such a special touch. We loved the entire experience, and both of my bosses were really impressed with the atmosphere, food and service. Thanks for making it such a great occasion!
Classy and classic design, spectacular views, great potential but uneven execution. Friendly staff but unevenly managed service and spotty knowledge. Attentive at first but then inattentive even though frequently nearby. Other tables had same challenges. Tableside staff do not know how to read positioning of silverware as indication of when to clear plates. Don’t bring extra plates when stated tablesplitting a dish. Slow to refill wine glasses. Served Madeira in proper glass but served cognac in same shape glass - opposite of what is proper for cognac. Menu compelling and generally well executed. We think we detected MSG though in the black garlic aoli under the Brussels sprouts. Well intentioned place with beautiful setting marred by uneven service and loud ambiance.
Extremely loud and overcrowded dining room. Mediocre and overpriced food.
Scallops were amazing but very overpriced as well as everything else. Shell Food ice tower was very expensive with about half the food I've had at other seafood restaurants at almost half the price.
Love this place! Great food. Servers. Ambience. View. And, my friend loved her birthday donuts!
Great location and service. Food was good, but not great.
Delicious food and beautiful view. Specially for sunset
Very slow service, bland scrambled eggs...compared to previous visits, disappointing.
The Strand over looks the pier and the ocean. You can't get more So Cal that that!
Food was good , service was ok but they were crowded so I understand why bringing out food and drinks took forever. Overall nice restaurant but very busy for a Sunday brunch
Excellent food - always fresh - good service - Hamachi crudo a must!
Outstanding food. Outstanding service. Incredible view. Highly recommended.
