I went for a sunday brunch with my parents and we sat outside. It was a nice view of the marina on a sunny day. The bloody Mary drink was good and the service was great. Courtney our server was very prompt with taking care of our table.

The food was excellent with larger portions. There was an incessantly barking dog at the table next to us which clearly hurt the ambience rating, but without that dog it would have been a very nice view and a very nice environment. However the service was abysmal and completely inattentive . I would not return to this establishments primarily for that reason.

Pretty view and great food! Service was good, though a little slow...we weren’t in a rush though, so not a big deal.

Great brunch. Food was pretty darned good. Eggs were overcooked on Benedict but that was quickly replaced. Service was certainly friendly but a tad slow. Gorgeous restaurant, incredible view. Would definitely recommend.

Waiters were not attentive. Friend showed up and it took a good 15 min before she was asked what she wanted to drink. Got her order wrong then brought a menu over to tell her she was wrong. Never came by again to check on us. Gardner was weed whacking 10 yards away. Loud, terrible ambiance at that time of day.

This restaurant used to be one of my favorites until this past Saturday. The location can’t be beaten in Marina del Rey, but the food is VERY pricey for a restaurant that allows people to wear short shorts and bathing suits in the restaurant in the evening (that should be poolside). Our waitress “tried” to be patient but actually seemed like she couldn’t be bothered and checked on our group just once (no refill on coffee to be had). When the bill arrived we had to triple check it because it was so expensive. Thinking twice about going back.

Had been here a long time ago. Location on the beach is great. Guess previous time was for lunch and we sat outside and it was warm and very pleasant. We tried to sit outside on this last visit but it was too cold (waiter did bring a big blanket for my friend who had no jacket). Then we moved indoors but the acoustics were so bad we had to yell at one another. So not enjoyable conversation. Food was quite expensive & som elf us enjoyed our meal and some did not. A $5 charge for bread! Waiters were great so this is no reflection on them or their service. Would probably not go back for dinner again.

Meat in our burger was undercooked. When we put it in our mouth it smelled and tasted like chemicals. Woman who served us took our order and gave us our check, never checked on us.

We were a big family group for a birthday. The food was delicious. The service was very good until the end when they kind of forgot about us. Overall we enjoyed our time. It’s a lovely setting with some grass areas for kids to run around and the food was very good.

Have been going to Beachside for breakfast for years. There is new management so, some issues: prices are higher, no more locals discount or senior discount, service is very friendly, but Very Slow, tendency to forget you once you are served. Took almost 10 minutes to track someone down for coffee refill. A couple weeks ago they did not have any cream for our coffee, on!y low-fat milk. Did not bother to mention this when we were ordering. Will wait a while before returning with hopes that the service will improve.

Everything was great except the waiter said we couldn’t get burgers or a bread bowl because they had no bread even though everyone around us was getting food with bread. I don’t know if the guy just didn’t understand or what.

Given the location you can expect Marina level prices but the food is actually worth the visit. The cocktails and appetizers with the view make for a chill happy hour but we recently went for a birthdays. The staff went out of their way for the birthday, although we almost always have a long wait for service here—this time was no different. Thankfully the kitchen is fast and the food comes out quick joy and it’s usually exceeding the expectations given the touristy location.

We had a 5 PM reservation, so the restaurant was quiet, with a nice view of the marina. Our crabcakes with sauteed spinach and mashed potatoes were wonderful, as was the mixed green salad. Lattes and carrot cake for dessert: heaven! Highly recommend!

Hostess Jasmine made my first visit a pleasure. Brandon was also a large part of the evening that I and my guest enjoyed at the restaurant. I was surprised my martini was vigorously shaken. Unlike James Bond, I prefer it stirred, which is traditional. The fish was excellent, although I expected some rice along with it. Just a suggestion.

Das Essen war sehr gut und reichhaltig, allerdings auch etwas überteuert. Wein (per Glas) eindeutig zu teuer für die Füllmenge.
Der Service war schwach bis ungenügend, der Ober eher unfreundlich bis arrogant. Es wurde kein einziges mal gefragt, ob alles zufriedenstellend sei. Der Hauptgang wurde schon serviert, als wir die Vorspeise noch nicht beendet hatten.
Wegen der kühleren Witterung hatten wir einen Platz im Innenraum gewählt. Da allerdings alle Türen und Fenster weit geöffnet waren, ging ein starker Windzug durch den Raum, sodass wir Pullover und Jacken anziehen mußten. Das Ambiente des Raums war eher nüchtern.

We had a lovely meal here, filet mignonette, crab cakes, lobster ravioli were all delicious. It was quiet which we enjoyed after every other restaurant we have been to during our stay has been really noisy!

Service was also good and attentive.

Would have no hesitation in returning

Very different from last year. Very limited menu and on the expensive side. Service was pleasant and well meaning but not too efficient. We chose to eat inside because it was chilly and overcast and the acoustics were not great. Had to yell to talk over the noise.

All was great with the exception of parking and ability to enter into parking from Palawan. Two huge trucks were blocking the driveway. Then on exiting, all exits were blocked onto Admiralty. Very poor traffic flow.

Beachside is always a pleasure. Made slightly less so by its new $5 valet charge. that might not seem like much to most, but when you're used to paying a buck (which was a step up from free), U feel it. But the view and the vibe are unbeatable -- the perfect happy hour if you're looking for someplace chill. Thank you, Beachside!

We expected a more dynamic water view and needed to sit inside because it was too cold. The mai tai was well done. The food was okay, but not up to my expectations. the valet was excellent. It was a good value and quite fast.

Food was very good but service was sub par. Had to ask for help several times. Was told that one server would be with us shortly and a different one came. Very disappointed by the service as it took away from our Father's Day celebration.
