First, what a great location. Nothing like hanging out at the bar, or eating dinner overlooking the ocean! Second, food was out of this world. Our table had several appetizers, several main dishes, and several desserts. All were perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, and just really...More

I had an artichoke pizza and a delicious desert. Pizza came with a crisp and thin bottom and herbs, spices and extra cheese to the side. Yes, there is a price point. But with the staff being exceptionally friendly it is worth the money.

We were quite happy with the overall setting and the delicious food at the Strand House. It was a fun people-watching place - with gorgeous people around us but it didn't have a stuffy or 'pretty-people-only' feel, as there were plenty of 'plain folks' like...More

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.
