The Strand House is a sophisticated yet comfortable family-owned restaurant conceived by a small group of South Bay families out of their love for great food, wine and friends. In 2011, The Strand House opened its doors, leading the culinary revolution of Manhattan Beach. With 180° sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, world travelers and locals alike may come for the view, but stay for Chef Greg Hozinsky’s and Executive Chef Austin Cobb’s award-winning Coastal California Cuisine.

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.

The main attraction is the views. Food is good, service is kinda slow, and they really pack you in.

The location is terrific, the service was solid but the food was just ok. I would be willing to give it another shot but almost every steak dish our table of 12 ordered was prepared incorrectly.

I have dined here before and the venue is nice with a view to of the beach to die for BUT...
... they have really increased their prices now. They charge the same as a top notch steak house for their steaks and well - they certainly are not as good as a steak house. Wine menu is also overpriced. It's a nice place but no value for money. If you're going to spend top dollar go somewhere else.

Hostesses were no help and didn’t accommodate us properly. Reservation wasn’t ready and we had to wait more than 15mins. They said they would text us but didn’t receive any. I had to check in 3 times. If only this didn’t happen, it would’ve been a perfect brunch for us. The food and servers are amazing.

Food, service and view was great during our Sunday Brunch. We were seat on time at 11:30 am. Please be aware it is extremely loud in the upper restaurant area. Difficult to hold a normal conversation with dining partners. Probably will not return unless it’s earlier or later in the brunch period.

Arrived to our reservation for my Fathers 60th birthday to celebrate. We were seated quickly and the service was amazing. Scenery also to outside so you can see the beach which is amazing. All our plates were delicious. I love how they added a happy 60th birthday on the menu which was a thoughtful touch of them to do.

Dinner was fantastic! Loved everything we ordered...gnocchi, prosciutto pizza, lamb chops, pork chops, salmon and brussels sprouts . We had dinner family style so we could taste everything we ordered. The Moscow mule was the best I ever had. Dessert was great...the cheesecake was so creamy...not too dense. Loved the sundae with the caramel popcorn. Service was great too! Will definitely go there again!

We took our friends that came from another country, 7,000 miles from the US to your restaurant. I did not expect such poor service. The reservation was for 1pm but we were seated 25 mins later. The server did not return to ask my friend for her drink option since my friend asked for additional time. Food is ok, salad needed more dressing.

Service has gotten way better, as have the portions sizes. I stopped going, b/c the portions were more appetizer size portions for an entree for $25-30, unacceptable. Glad my co-worker talked me into going back. Now it's got no flaws.

Very nice time celebrating a birthday at these great oceanview restaurant in Manhattan Beach. Sitting at a table for two above the dining room, we had a beautiful, elevated view of the ocean. Food was delicious and paired with excellent wine. Service was attentive and positive. Just really a great experience.

Had to wait a couple minutes for them to get us a table but was still seated. Loved how personal the menu was, waiter was detail oriented, checkout was fast and easy, food was flavorful, all super friendly, the bathroom can be confusing to find. Amazing views. I would go back again.

The view is spectacular and the look and feel of the restaurant is lovely. I was disappointed in our server this time. We felt rushed from her initial greeting until the almost the end of the meal when she backed off a little.

Celebrated a birthday there. Had an amazing server. Food was delicious. However the noise level was too much. Table for 2 sandwiches between a large bachelorette party of 12 and another table for 2.

My wife's review:

We celebrated our daughter's 18th birthday with family back in April. It was perfect then and even better this past Saturday evening thanks to our amazing server Robert. He took care of us in April and I was excited to see his warm smile and friendly personality once again. Our stay was a quick 24 hour whirlwind visiting my ill father so we were tired and hungry. Robert was attentive, compassionate and kind throughout our dinner and ensured he'd get us in and out as quickly as possible as we had an early flight the next day.

We shared the Munak Farms' heirloom tomato and the Yellowtail crudo. Both excellent. I had Ora King salmon. It was prepared to perfection with hints of different flavors in every bite. My husband had seared Hokkaido scallops that was very tasty and melted in his mouth.

Towards the end of our meal Robert brought 2 glasses of sparkling wine on the house and said "Cheers to the good things in life". This meant everything! The kind gesture brought me to tears. He even gave us both a hug and wished us well on our way out.

Come for some of the best cuisine around.
Enjoy the beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean and incredible sunsets.
Return for the hospitable staff that makes you feel like family.
