This is the place for real Italian gravy! I don't ever order spaghetti & meat balls at a restaurant, but this is the exception! You won't be disappointed

Unfortunately, Finbars in Seal Beach closed earlier this year. There is another location in Costa Mesa, but that is a little too far to go. We are hopeful they might open another place in the Seal Beach/Long Beach area. My husband loved their Sunday gravy...More

Finding poached salmon in a restaurant is not always the easiest thing to do. On top of that if it's good you are pretty lucky. This one was cooked very well, it remained very moist but was just barely on the verge of being overdone....More

Food was nice. They were very understanding of all the children in our party. Great beef ravioli's, I could tell top beef was used for the ravioli's.
