Ate here with a friend this week. I highly recommend the outside seating on a nice day, great ocean views and good view of Palos Verdes. Staff was typical for the area, food was fresh, hot and deliscious. Great night out

Do not expect more, but you will enjoy your meals, they have a nice sea view terrace. They also have their own private parking lot that is a good value in that area.
