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.

I order the salmon well done and it came out raw on the inside. My husband ordered the pork chops and became sick once we left the restaurant.

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.

Outstanding dining experience! We shared a pork belly appetizer that was fantastic. Halibut Veracruz was amazing. Both the sevice and view of the sunset were perfect. First time here, but certainly will not be the last.

Expectation was high based on recommendations and they did great on all levels. Service level was top notch both in the bar and the dining area. Food was excellent and of course the view is tough to beat.

Very energetic, bordering on a little too boisterous atmosphere but the sunset views are the best around. Delicious choices of food-lots of variety and all cooked great. Kitchen is very gluten conscious so I would suggest this restaurant if you want a Gluten-free meal. Drinks are also top notch. Service was great-our waitress was informative, efficient and so friendly.

The Strand House is a wonderful venue to watch the sunset by yourself or with a group of friends. The food quality and attention to detail make it a place to enjoy a wonderful end of the day.

We had an fly at our inside table during entire meal and people next to us had a spider come down on their table. Views are beautiful. Food was delicious. Usually love it- but the pesky fly buzzing through while trying to enjoy a meal is bad.

Our server did not look like he was even excited about his job. He rushed us to order, did not give any food recommendation. When I asked what drinks he recommends, he suggested that I take a look at the drink menu and not ask him. Poor quality customer service.

Perfect service from our server, excellent drinks, but the hostess was terrible. Unfriendly and refused to sit us at a table with a view as we requested, stating that it was for a larger party, only to see her sit someone else , party of 2, just five minutes later.
