We came here for a Sunday brunch and have a wonderful table overlooking the beach and the beach scene. The menu had very good choices and the prices were surprisingly reasonable. Food was good service was good and the view was fabulous. I'd go back

Food, drinks, lunch, service, ambience, location, view. All fantastic: 5/5!! Great place for a relaxing lunch or brunch. On weekend they have a brunch menu all day - so you can have pizza and eggs!

Excellent service, craft cocktails and delicious food. A bit pricey, but an excellent experience. I was able to find vegan options on the menu, and the staff was accommodating and attentive.

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.
