It is a beautiful place. The food is well done with some unique flavors. The atmosphere is great if you are looking in to the 30's crowd. Not that many young immature people, BUT be careful for Saturday Nights. Depends the Crowd, that creates the experience. Would not recommend for a romantic late evening dinner. This is more of a...

First off, I give The Stand House 5 circles for the view, ambience, and the friendly wait staff. However, the food isn't any better than a 2 circles, so I am giving them a 3 circle rating. We had a group of 6 for lunch (off of the brunch menu) on a Saturday. The hostess was extremely professional when I... More

What a great experience, from a delicious California salad with fresh citrus and wonderful avocados to a delightful halibut dinner that was absolutely perfectly cooked and the most tasty halibut I have had since eating fresh halibut in Homer, Alaska. The dinner was complete with a wonderful cheesecake tower that was very delightful and had a wonderful citrus taste. Our... More

Not only is the location good, but the staff is friendly and professional. And the food! Many choices! We were there for just a quick stop, had a glass of wine and an appetizer tuna Tempura. We'll be back for dinner.

Strand House, do something about your hostesses!! I love this place and I have been many times for lunch. I've always had a pleasant experience dinning here. The wait staff is alway attentive and polite. Your hostesses however are not. They are rude and make no effort to accommodate your guest. They described your patio as a "sun drenched hot... More

Great location right near the Manhattan Beach Pier. Outdoor terrace area for dining. Mid-afternoon menu is scant. A few pizza options and salads. Food quality was excellent though. Service dogs are allowed on patio. Good wine selection.

The main entrees here are excellent our group had the salmon, the chicken and the short rib; all of them were very, very good. For groups over 15 ppl they give you a set menu which includes most everything anyway with appetizers, entree and dessert. Salads were fulfilling, entree's were excellent, the dessert's lacked the promise of the preceding meal.... More

This restaurant is a must visit anytime I'm in LA. Parking's a bit of a bear, but once you're parked this is a fun upscale beachfront shopping area to spend an evening in. Strand House sunset views are incredible - I'm not sure there's a bad seat in the house. Food is equally incredible. Pictured below is their clam pasta... More
