I had the tuna & salmon appetizer (decent size dish) as well as their burger...BOTH were excellent and, yes, I overdid it - each selection was/is enough food...Since my hotel was in LA, and this was a bus/cab ride for me, I skipped eating until suppertime...One may want to go one way or the other on this, but both of these selection were VERY good!
I rated this as 'fine dining', but it's kind of between mid-range & fine dining, price-wise...I found it worth it, though...

If you get a seat by the windows the view is amazing. Everyone was happy with their meals which were primarily seafood choices. The crab salad was really good. Our waiter was nice and helpful. My children got the bento box kid's meals and liked them. There is seating at the bar where you can watch sports. I have been here several times and it's great Redondo Beach staple.

Thank Katharine W

Setting in the middle of the Redondo Marina is this fish specialty restaurant with great views and an inviting atmosphere. This place has been here for decades but is very clean and updated. Parking is by valet for a small fee. Expect busy crowds Friday through Sunday unless you arrive by 5pm for dinner. A large and very well stocked bar is located in the center and is a popular place for Happy Hour or while waiting for your table. The staff are friendly and efficient. Jason was an excellent server. The menu is more extensive than is typical for a fish restaurant. Reservations are accepted and are required for a window booth. Dining is inside and outside. I had the Longfin Tilapia and my wife had the Idaho Trout Amandine. Both were very good but not "excellent." since they tended to be a little overcooked. The two sides that come with the dinner were also very good (spinach and croton potatoes). They are well known for their New England Clam and Lobster Bisque soups which were a 7 on a scale of 1-10. Afterwards you can stroll on the bicycle/strand pathway, just two blocks away, for a little exercise. Good place for couples or for families.

This restaurant was recommended to us by many individuals. Right when we walked in we were greeted by a very rude hostess. When we asked if we could sit by the window viewing the marina she told us that a reservation of 6 people were coming shortly. We were there for almost two hours and no one showed up and sat at the table that we requested, may I add that there was not that much of a crowd to "save" those tables near the window for. Although our waiter was friendly, he suggested food items that were not even good. We were very disappointed with the food, was DEFINITELY not worth the price we paid!

First visit. Delicious food! Excellent service from server Sal. Truly fresh seafood and locally sourced produce. Looking forward to a couple's visit and sitting on the patio to watch the sunset.
