Fantastic food! Vacationing in the area and was looking for a great surf n turf restaurant. Found it! Great atmosphere, views and food. You will not be disappointed!
Just an awesome dinner. The views, food and service was excellent!
Food was overcooked and dry.
I was there for brunch! This is a great location! Seating in this place are great everywhere. You can see the ocean from all tables and the open and airy feeling is quite divine! The food is ok. I did however enjoy my short rib tacos. I even liked the tortillas that are a combination of corn and flour. I Ama corn tortilla fan usually, but these were above average. I was there for brunch with my two sisters and we ordered the donuts, which were a BIG MISS! We notified the server and she took them back and off of the bill. Great service point. I do believe breakfast lovers will love it and find a good variety of offerings. There are sandwiches and salads available too. I do recommend going earlier in the late morning to avoid the crowds. Great views and seating for all.
It was loud, packed, water dripping from the ceiling above our table.
The service was good. Overpriced for the food quality
Veronica was a terrific waitress for our visit! Terrific views!
Food was extremely delicious with reasonable price. The noise level was understandably high since it’s more of a bar-like restaurant. Only down-side was it took us 30mins to get seated, that’s with a reservation.
Always love this special restaurant. Great food and service!!
Another fantastic dinner at the Strand House! Great food, service & atmosphere. Thank you to our server for making our experience extra special. One of my favorite restaurants in the South Bay
Excellent wine list, once drinks were on the table, we gave all ordering power to our waiter Peter who 100% set us up with the best appetizers and entrees. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable on his product. As far as vibe, this place has the architecture of the Inception movie. It is a must try, if you aren’t having dinner it is still a wonderful place to grab drinks with friends.
Brought my wife for her birthday. The staff was great about making her feel special.
It was not as good as the previous times I've gone. It took forever to just get an almost $8.00 latte! The latte was 1/2 the price of our entrees. Ridiculous. My English muffin was not fresh.
Amazing service and very knowledgeable server
Great food, amazing view, a bit loud but how can you walk away in a bad mood when you're living life in Southern California like this?
Great spot! Beautiful views, lovely staff and outstanding food! Would have loved some more shade, but thats unavoidable!
The sizes of the appetizers are not consistent. The salads are very small in comparison to the appetizers.
Thank you! You made my sister and husband Liz and Johnson 27 wedding Anniversary very special.
We had a good time to celebrate our friend’s birthday. I made a reservation and requested a certain table. They prepared for us, do we were very happy! They also provided us their complimentary donuts because of our friend’s birthday. Very thoughtful! The servers were excellent! Location was spectacular, too.
Dinner with my wife very pleasant
The food was attractive and tasty. Ambient noise was acceptable. The vies waa amazing.
Exceptional scallops! I again started with the avacado coated in chili powder. The tasteful decor along with the spectacular ocean views is rivaled by the kind and friendly hostesses and servers. Well worth my drive from Sherman Oaks.
Enjoyed a nice romantic dinner with a view of Manhattan Beach. Great server and a nice anniversary special.
Amazing view, delicious food, vibrant scene. Will definitely be back again!
We were visiting from New York on business and found this place on Open Table. We enjoyed the evening, the service definitely was the best part of the experience. We had gin & tonic at the bar and it was the best! The food was good, I ordered the cheese board and it was very good. We had fish and red meat and everyone was happy with their meals. They have a pretty extensive wine selection, we had a bottle of zinfandel. The location is great, the view is awesome. We’d go back again!
I live in PV. It is literally the only reason I go to Manhattan Beach at all.
The service for our anniversary dinner was impeccable. We noted the special occasion on our Open Table reservation and the restaurant put Happy anniversary on our menus and gave us a celebratory glass of champagne. Our server, Craig, provided great food descriptions and recommendations and showed up with our next course just as we finished the previous one. Service was fun and impeccable. Food was wonderful as usual. Great experience all around.
Very nice place to dine with with your significant other while watching the sunset on the beach
The best! Beautiful view. Great food. Attentive service.
The overall rating is lower than the other individual elements... driven by one major challenge. PARKING!
No valet and the chances of getting a space in public Lots or on-street on a summer’s weekend were very low. My friend drove around for 40 mins and I drove around for 65 mins, to find parking spaces and still ended up a long walk away.
Recommend parking a few miles away and getting a rideshare.
However... the restaurant was super nice. Food was good, view was good, staff were excellent and very understanding about the parking issues. I would go back but obviously not try to park locally.
Thank you for a very nice brunch. We had a very nice time celebrating my sister-in-law’s birthday.
We were seated by the window which is what I requested but unfortunately, this corner window table was positioned in the sun and there wasn’t a drop-shade near by to provide shade from the very bright hot sun where my seat was located. The other tables by the windows were in the shade and I will remember that for next time.
Excellent service! Thank you, Kenny!
The view is the best thing going at strand house. Waited for our table in spite of a reservation and waited (almost an hour) for our appetizer. The food is good but not special by any means. If you like to see and be seen this is the place. If you want a great dining experience there are dozens others.
Went here for anniversary. Was promised the outdoor patio. Not only did we not get that, but we had to wait 15 minutes because they never had a table for us even though we booked one on OpenTable.
The food, service and view were all outstanding - we will be back!
Great brunch spot right on the strand in MB. Was very satisfied with the experience.
We went on a Saturday brunch with 7 people. Service was impeccable, food was excellent : we the (enormous) cinnamon roll which is to die for, the fruit plate as appetizers and I chose the lobster roll which is one my favorite. Our waitress was very attentive despite the many tables she had to take care of. Some of our guest were for the first time at The Strand House truly enjoyed the view and the setting.
First time, First Date. Outstanding Experience. Gina our server was awesome. The food was great. Highly recommend.
Our server was phenomenal and so was the food and view. We will definitely be back when we are in LA. It was a wonderful way to end our trip.
Server was great, overall a very nice dinner..nice touch with the name of my daughter on menu for her birthday
We brought Visitors from Japan. They loved it.
Love the food, love the view, love the wide range of choices on the menu. BUT, the noise level is almost deafening. Under the best of circumstances, it's always pretty noisy, so you just accept it and don't try to have much of a conversation. But, on my birthday dinner there, in addition to the usual loud ambiance, a screaming toddler who took great joy in shrieking at the top of his lungs was a huge deterrent to our enjoyment of the evening. No, I don't fault the restaurant at all. I DO fault the oblivious parents and grandmother who made no effort to quiet the child or remove him from the restaurant until he could be calm. So yes, we do really love the food here, but be aware that it's usually noisy, and the presence of an out of control kid can seriously hamper your enjoyment of the evening.
