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!

The atmosphere was very good and service excellent, however for New Year's Eve I expect an all inclusive meal to be just that. Paying additional 20 or 60 dollars for shaved truffle was not necessary. The deserts were also disappointing. This is one of the best restaurants in manhattan beach and I would go again.

I have dined here maybe six times because my business friend, who lives in Manhattan Beach. It is convenient to the Manhattan Beach Strand and Pier. The most recent visit was rather crowded and loud because of holiday functions. The wait staff was friendly, accurate, and efficient. The food is very good when compared to other restaurants in the region.... More

Very happening vibe ... but for how good the food was, the dark lighting and the vibe rather overshadowed the food. Food quality justified the price. I just wish it were more of the star. Probably a bit much to expect with such a view ... food and location aren't normal bedfellows, perhaps this is why? Foie was very good.... More

Since moving to California, we have been to The Strand House more times than I can recall. The service is always spectacular, their menu is always a hit with out of town guests and we have tried almost everything! I absolutely love the ceviche and the pomegranate daiquiri last time we were there! If you are looking for a great... More

Location is beautiful, particularly just before sunset; classic California with a very pleasant wait staff and delicious meal with a variety of offerings for every palate. The Hand-cut Frites and Beet salad were a great supplement to a shared meal .

Manhattan Beach is always a "must visit" when in LA. Great small city, great vibe, great views of the Pacific Ocean and many great restaurants and shops. Lunch today at The Strand House was exquisite. Watching surfers, fishermen and beach goers while having lunch was a unique and enjoyable time. The service is always attentive. The lunch menu is filled... More

Great service, good view of the pier and beach, and lovely staff. good range of food choices. Eggs benedict as they should be, though base a little small. Pancakes were good too. Fresh oj. A little exxy due to the lousy exchange rate on the $AUD but enjoyed the food and the view. Fastest free wifi I've ever had !... More

"This place is only a month old but very hip- excellent food. Sits right on the hill overlooking the pier at Manhattan Beach".
