Came here with a group of clients in January. Although we were not able to see the ocean, we had a wonderful spot with a fire pit right by the door. Drinks were very good, and food was decent but the ambiance made it amazing. I'd go here again for business and/or pleasure.

Came here based upon all of the great reviews and have my own "mixed" review to share..... No doubt strand House has some of the most amazing views of the ocean. In fact there are 2 stories of views to choose from if they are not packed. However I was a bit disappointed by the very limited dinner menu. I'm... More

Beautiful view, beautiful dining and wonderful wait staff. Great place to celebrate my birthday. We were in LA for only one day. A friend recommended The Strand House to us. Being my birthday, I was treated extra special. My menu was personalized with "Happy Birthday". We were given a table by the windows with a fabulous view of the Pacific.... More

The service, the service, the service. I have high expectations for service and they exceeded my expectations. I was taken to the Strand House for my birthday and they really made me feel special. Excellent food, great view, and great service. Can't wait to go back.

Our friends made reservations at the Strand House and it was outstanding. The parking near the restaurant is not the best. The lots don't seem to support the traffic. It would've in your best interest to use uber or a cab. The decor was beautiful and the staff were very attentive. Our food choices ranged from the pork chops, steak... More

We lucked out and came during LA Dine week. The food is good but you're really paying for the views, which are stunning. Get a seat on the 2nd floor by the windows 45 minutes before sunset - sit, relax, have a drink or two and enjoy. This is especially a nice place when it's cold and windy.

Fun and interesting menu in a modern upscale restaurant- pretty views of the pier. Attentive service with good food recommendations- enjoyed the yellow tail crudo and the beet salad. Beef was also good. Quiet for good conversation as it has a separate bar. Parking is the only negative as it's limited and requires you to watch the meter!
