Lunch outside at the Strand House was perfect. Beautiful view, fresh and delicious food and good service. We couldn’t have asked for anything more!

We stopped for afternoon cocktails on a very warm day and preferred cool to be at the bar—- with the mirrors reflecting the ocean and Manhattan pier right before us! I enjoyed a sparkling Rosé cocktail and we split a delicious quinoa salad. Next visit...More

Great food and outstanding service with a wonderful view! A great place for dinner or happy hour. The flatbread pizzas are the best!

Fabulous views, great service. Solid wine by the glass list... Light lunch, fresh heirloom tomato burrata and a wonderful balsamic reduction. Simply delightful!

Great discovery! I just don’t understand what is with the waiting lists! At least we got accommodated at the bar on the top floor. Nice way, Good food, great drinks selection in general. Didn’t try the cocktails but it seemed bar tenders knew their business....More

I ordered the salmon and purée potatoes instead of cauliflower. I cleaned my plate. It was beyond amazing. I’m thinking about going there again this week for the same thing!

So many restaurants with a great view have mediocre food - The Strand House is the exception. Fabulous meal. The Parker House Rolls, the grilled octopus were fabulous. Excellent service, excellent food - the view was just the cherry on top!

No, it doesn't. At night, it's not too difficult to find a spot if you are willing to all a little. Or go with the Ocean Express from LAX area or Uber.

Down at the beach, overlooking the Pacific Ocean,The Strand House rises elegantly and iconically above the breakers. Like in an oceanfront home, friends become family and strangers become friends.
