Terrific food, great wine, attentive service, and a really nice vibe. I highly recommend the Strand for a memorable evening with a loved one, friends or colleagues. Be sure to make a reservation first!!!!!

Sitting over the beach, this spot had great food and wonderful drinks. Hard to get in, had no reservation, but they let us be seated at 515. Pizzas were great- one pasta dish with truffles was not that good but everything else was delish- and the desserts! A smores like dessert was amazing as was the blueberry dish as well.... More

The view is amazing, the food is delicious and the service was wonderful. My only complaint is the horrible parking situation. I tried the pork chop with polenta which was mouth watering and one of the fish plates was delicious as well. The charcuterie plate was great!

Great restaurant with an excellent view and environment. You can also have a good bar. Sometimes difficult to find parking place to park in the whole area, but there are parking lots available. But the restaurant is super

When in Manhattan Beach the Strand House is a can't miss. The view is incredible - overlooking the beach, the pier and the strand. We only popped in for drinks. I had a strawberry mojito. It was excellent, made with fresh strawberries. The bartender was great. Also, the people watching is amusing here. It is a very LA place.

We had reservations and arrived a bit early. We had drinks in the bar downstairs while we waited for our table. The bar was crowded and had a fun vibe to it. We were seated prior to our reservation time. The upstairs had a quieter, more intimate feel. The service and food were great.

We took a friend and coworker here for a small retirement party. The food was great, the view on the balcony was spectacular and the people were so nice and accommodating. There were seven of us and for whatever reason, we all had pizza. Everyone thought theirs was great and I did as well. I also tried the roasted brussel... More

The Strand is the perfect mid-point location for a business meeting between parties coming from San Diego and LA. It offers a choice of private tables in quiet areas, and also a bar with a New York feel and ocean views. Food and beverage value is good and portions are not too big and not too small. The charcuterie is... More
