Extremely loud restaurant so it honestly wasn’t the best for a date. Suitably priced for the location. The oysters were amazing, but I definitely wouldn’t order the T-bone again. If I ever come back here I’ll sit at the bar.
Had Barbacoa tacos and margaritas- great! Fantastic outdoor seating, wonderful views!
Absolutely the best--new chef,Austin Cobb, young, very focused, and creative...this is now an outstanding fine dining destination. Sommelier Doug is very well versed and very knowledgeable...terrific guy with real service orientation. Michael, the waiter did a superb job. And finally, GM Michael Morrissett is one of the very best.
This is a restaurant that I will be visiting much more often based on this fabulous experience.
We were celebrating my girlfriend's Birthday and really enjoyed the dining experience. I made reservations and requested a window seat. The view was outstanding and very close to the Manhattan Beach Pier. The ambience and service was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or date. The food was delicious and was slightly overpriced, but worth the overall experience.
Initial service was slow but got better when the restaurant got less busy. Food was great. Recommend the Shrimp Cocktail, Pizza (New York style) and the roasted Brussell Sprouts.
An exceptional dinner out. They knew it was my anniversary and printed on our menus a Happy Anniversary greeting. Strand House is excpetional, albeit procey
I made the mistake of bringing my 2 year old. The waiter forgot to order his food. All the adult food came but no food for my toddler. It was an epic meltdown .
One of my all time favorite restaurants. I took my family to The Strand House for the first time, they were blown away by the view, the food and drinks, but the service was the cherry on top of the entire evening. We celebrated my mom and husband's birthdays, they brought out complementary a dessert that included their original homemade donuts. The menus also said Happy Birthday at the top, their attention to detail is impeccable! This restaurant is a must try, for special occasion or just a nice drink after a long day at the beach.
We just had a great time. Super waiter, delicious food, fun vibes!!
Excellent food. Everything was delicious.
It was a wonderful dining experience. Service and food were fantastic.
Came for brunch and the service was excellent, the food was good and the views were beautiful. I came for my anniversary and they gave us a complimentary dessert which seemed to be mini donut holes and they were amazing.
As always, fantastic, unique food with the best ocean view in the South Bay! Attentive, friendly service, & a full restaurant at lunch, but never feels noisy. We celebrated my mom's birthday, & they brought us a dessert on the house, even though we also ordered a dessert. So generous in every way! My favorite restaurant!! :)
Great. They went above and beyond to make our anniversary dinner special
Service was great. From personalized birthday brunch menus, to complimentary bday toast, to fabulous dessert! Great first trip to Manhattan Beach.
We were sat outside with a lovely view of the ocean, the food was plentiful and delicious. Our server was really nice and did a great job. We would definitely come back!
We went to Strand house for a 16th birthday dinner. I requested a window view table and we were accommodated. The view was lovely the restaurant was fairly crowded and quite noisy and hard to hear regular conversation. The food and service was excellent. The restaurant ran out of donuts but the waiter figured out a way to squeeze out some donut holes so as to not disappoint the birthday girl. It was overall a very nice dinner. Great food and service.
Recommended highly by colleague. Met all expectations
We regularly go to The Strand House to hang out at one of the bars, but this time we sat at a table for the 4 of us. From start to finish, it was fantastic! The service, food and views were really awesome. My brother had the pork chop and loved it. We shared the table-side prepared fish with the Thai preparation and I am craving it now. So so good. The apps and deserts were amazing!!
The Strand House is always great. I always bring people from out of town there because the food is as good as the view. However, I am not a fan of the pagers they started using. Some restaurants text u if you are not within earshot of the hosts’ station. The vibrating coasters are kind of tacky in my opinion and reminiscent of cheap chain restaurants like Chili’s or Applebee’s.
I generally expect a higher level of service from a fine dining establishment such as the Strand House.
The visit was a return visit from the last time that I was in town for a business meeting. The service was outstanding and the food was impressive.
Excellent service, beautiful view, very accommodating!
I didn't think the food (or maybe just the items we chose) had a lot of flavor. The servers and other staff were amazing though!
Food was really excellent!
Great service and great food in a fantastic location.
Not sure why open table points were not applied to my account???
We love coming to Manhattan Beach and the strand house is our happy place. Love the atmosphere, food, wine, and you can’t beat the view. Service has always been great. Highly recommend! Just got the chicken dish...melt in your mouth delicious.
Casual but upscale dining. Great ocean view. Good quality food
Really nice and right on the beach in Redondo Beach. We loved the pasta ribbons.
Food was great, waitress was very friendly. But was disappointed with the person who seated us because I requested a window seat in the notes but got a table that was not a window seat, got the next table over so the people actually sitting in the window seat blocked the ocean view a bit. But the staff was super nice and food was awesome.
Great food. Wonderful service (Kelly is awesome). Overall great meal and night out. :)
Get the donuts!
Love this place. It's my go-to for occasions with my wife. Food is always good and was good again. Though waffles didn't come with fruit as they had in the past, upon pointing it out they were brought on the side. Service was just OK, not as outstanding as in past visits. Can't beat the location.
I love this place more and more , There is a cellar you can rent out for private events, i use it for my staff or clients. The restaurant upstairs is beautiful and down stairs is a bar/ lounge GREAT place very highly recommend! The food is wonderful the drinks are unique.
Great food and view was made even better by a great waiter. Thanks Matthew for the good menu recommendations and the service with a smile.
We went for Valentine’s Day and it was beautiful. The food was good and the ambiance was lovely.
My wife and I came here for Valentine's Day. I was already bothered by the fact that I made the reservation weeks prior, but was not informed until the last minute that there was a special menu with limited options and inflated prices. When I tried to cancel the reservation they told me I would incur a cancelation charge of $50 per person.
The food was tasty, but the portions were sparse. I spent about as much as I would at Mastros with significantly smaller portions.
Ultimately my wife and I enjoyed the ambiance, but we were disappointed with the steep price for small portions and slow service.
Incredible food. Fantastic staff. Awesome view. Had a wonderful Valentine's Day.
Food was great. Service was good. We sat by the window which offered a nice view. Only complaint was the high noise level probably due to the large glass windows around the room reflecting sound.
The view, the food, amazing!@
Great Margarita from the top bar!!
Phil was very knowledgeable concerning the food and wine.
The wine list is great without excessive markups
