The high level dishes here like the shocking branzino signature dish are the best in L.A. and the wine list equals the best.
What has us ticked off this time is that the cappuccinos are the worst in L.A. - like those things they were making years ago before the restaurants discovered that cappuccinos were not just another form of coffee.
We strongly suspect that the management has its untrained waiters making cappuccinos. Hard to believe would happen in an upscale place, but there is no other explanation since they buy a good bean. They make them with nonfat milk which would explain their taste except that we had them use whole milk.
My friends took me out for my birthday and we had a delicious lunch and the service was outstanding !!
Bustling good feeling with lovely view of the water, but not enough on the brunch menu for vegetarians or vegans. Terrific wine selection.
Great brunch. Fantastic Bloody Mary!
Our waiter was Kenny who was superb. Service was excellent - we were seated less than 5 minutes after entering the restaurant. Food was excellent and served hot. Highly recommend The Strand House.
My parents and I went here before heading to the Pantages to see Wicked. We got there right before sunset and had a seat at the window and wow! Stunning view! We could not stop taking photos because of how beautiful the location was!
The food was absolutely delectable. From the appetizer to the main course everything was flawless! I got the Scallops and they were cooked to perfection with the slightest hint of dill flavor. LOVED IT! Then we finished with their desert which I have to say is the best donuts I've ever had in my life.
The server was AMAZING! He was so kind, charming and fast and even gave us a complimentary appetizer which again was DELICIOUS!
I cannot say enough good things about The Stand House! A must try!
Took my girlfriend here for our anniversary, had an amazing evening with great service, delicious wine, amazing food, and a beautiul view!
I brought my family here for a Sunday Brunch and it was incredible! We tried 4 different dishes and shared and every single thing we tried, including the espresso and latte, were great! The staff was wonderful, the view was amazing...seriously, one of my favorite spots. I can't believe I'd never heard of it or been here before. Will definitely be back! :)
Sunday Brunch at a table with a magnificent view of the Strand, food is pretty good too.....
Service was impeccable and view was amazing for out of town guests.
Went for my wife's birthday and it was a great choice. They had menus that had Happy Birthday on them and we saw two other parties celebrating birthdays. Service was great and the food was delicious. I highly recommend The Stand House for a great meal and a special occasion.
Great view and ambiance, but not certain the prices match the portions.
We waited almost an hour for our table in spite of having made a reservation. Service was slow and inattentive.
The food and service were excellent. We truly enjoyed our dinner there.
My girlfriend and I shared the 32oz steak with sweet corn and brussel sprouts and it was excellent. Our waiter Francisco provided excellent service, was friendly, and made us feel like we picked the right place for dinner.
Our dinner was fantastic.Outstanding service.
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 :)
