Our menu highlights the bounty of produce available year round in Southern California. Each week, our chefs roam the farmers market sourcing directly from the best farmers and purveyors around. The Strand House is also home to a thoughtful and carefully crafted cocktail and wine program that is sure to please each of our guests.
The Strand House offers a five-star experience with the warmth and hospitality you would expect from a beach town, where each guest is treated like family.
Need to book at 10:30 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Amazing location, right by the beach and pier! We did a bike ride before dinner which made for a great evening. The service was excellent. Food was good and overall a great evening. The prices are pretty high But overall experience was great
Great food nice and elegant atmosphere
The strand has an all around wonderful set-up. From the moment you walk through the fire lit door way you are greeted by wonderful hostesses. They are super attentive! All of the servers were also extremely attentive and made sure to check in on our party throughout the evening. The food was fantastic! I ordered the salmon which was out of this world delicious. It melted in my mouth like warm butter. Others in my party ordered the pork chop and ceviche, both were wonderful. The pork chop was cooked to perfection, we licked the plate. I would recommend you come by and check out the food and stay to watch the sun set. Totally worth it! #ilovethestrandhouse
Having Happy Birthday on the menu was a nice and unexpected touch
The restaurant was too noisy for easy conversation, definitely geared for the younger crowd. But then that is who eats out the most. The food was great but the service was a little slow but then the restaurant was very crowded. The wait staff was working very hard, now there fault the service was a bit slow, they had their hands fulol.
Great. Parking is difficult and lots nearby close at 9:30. Watch the signs.
It was our 7 year anniversary. Dinner was absolutely amazing.
Great ambiance and good food.... we had the table next to the window and were able to see a great view of the pier from our table.
Had company in town so wanted a dining experience with the ocean ambiance and The Strand House always delivers 😀
Will definitely be returning to The Strand House if business travels take me to LA. Best dinner ever!
The food and ambience were unbeatable for our business dinner. I ranked service as a 3-star only because our server forgot our drinks a couple times. But we were a group of 7 and the rest of the staff who delivered food were all super efficient and friendly. Highly recommend.
I have dietary restrictions, handed my card that listed them to the waiter. My dinner came with a number of my restrictions not adhered to. The waiter made some excuses But I obviously had not paid attention at all. He blamed the sous chef & took my food away. Eventually brought back alternative food that was ok. My dining colleague was nearly finished with dinner by the time my new food arrived. The waiter, Phil seemed to be clueless and ambivalent.
We were met immediately and seated quickly. Server was quick and knowledgeable. Salmon was cooked perfect.
My wife and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. We had an incredible dining experience. The sunset/ocean view was spectacular, the food and service was exceptional. we had oysters and grilled octopus for appetizers and the Bronzino and the Mushroom Taglitielle for our main courses They were all delicious. We can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic menu and service!
Amazing attention to detail and great service and food
Wonderful view, excellent service, delicious food. Everything was great but the service is what really makes me want to come back. It was packed on a Saturday night but did not feel loud - perfect for a nice dinner with my husband. The house margarita was great as was our food - pork chop and filet. Definitely make a reservation as this is a popular spot.
It was great. View was nice. Service was good. Food was delicious
I have been to the Strand House before and really enjoyed it. This time not so much. Service was very slow. We ordered a Margharita pizza it was good, except the fresh basil which was a lot, was cooked rather than put on fresh after the pizza was cooked, it seemed sloppy. My husband order risotto which was just rice with vegetables not a risotto. My salmon was completely raw, the crispy skin was not anything I would eat!! For the price it just wasn't very good.
Everything perfect except noisy drinkers next table over but hey it’s Super Bowl Sunday all good!
The food was delicious. Impeccable service from our waitress. She was extremely knowledgeable about the menu. It was a very nice experience. Beautiful restaurant with gorgeous food plating. Great experience. Will definitely go again.
We went for our first dinner of our Honeymoon. It was outstanding. The view was incredible and the food was better. Our server, Craig, gave great recommendations and added a lot to our dining experience. Leave room for dessert, the donuts are some of the best I have ever had and the coffee is similarly top notch.
Made a reservation on Open Table and got a table just a few minutes after we arrived. Sat on the patio with a nice view. Food was tasty and our drinks were delicious!
The hostess and our waitress was exemplary! The food was beautiful and thoroughly delicious! Prices are a bit high but in this case, worth it. It was a little too loud at lunch time but I do suppose you can get away with it by calling it "energetic." No complaints.
Noise was way more than energetic. We all were hoarse from talking so loud.
The food was very good but not knock your socks off amazing for the price. I don’t think I would go back for dinner because you are paying for the view which you can’t see at night. I would go for lunch on a nice day and try another spot for dinner.
The food was great. A perfect portion served. Our waiter was helpful with suggestions. The food was served fast. We didn't get sticker shock by the price. 😄
Beautiful views from any table. Excellent food and service. My favorite is their branzino and all their salads.
Very lively place, very loud, good bartender service.
Really nice place to go for a nice dinner. Very nice atmosphere, and of course a dinner right on the strand is always very nice. Drinks were a little slow, but they were definitely very good drinks with the recipe being well thought out. I had the pork chop and it was very good and the plate was not so big it left me stuffed.
The restaurant combines an amazing location and view, overlooking Manhattan Beach Pier, with absolutely outstanding food and great service. We were able to sit on the patio over the street (comfortable thanks to the standard California coast heat lamps for outdoor seating), with an amazing view and ambience. The Parker House roll appetizer was delicious; the avocado salad had a very nice blend of flavors; the scallops were tasty and perfectly prepared; and the brownie sundae dessert was quite a treat. Even the after dinner cappuccino was notably good. A memorable experience, highly recommend for an unforgettable evening in Manhattan Beach.
Excellent branzino, scallops needed more seasoning. Doughnuts bland.
All in all, great for view but mixed on dishes. Prices considerable.
