Not worth the $ – Went for Sunday brunch on a referral from someone...it was ok, the buffet was not well maintained and looked messy and is in the darkest part of the restaurant, so it looks unappetizing. Food was just ok...kind of a weird mix of food. Too much of too many things done badly, rather than a few things done really well. Crab legs were as thin as a pencil. Definitely didn't touch any oysters. Not really worth the money, plenty of nicer places to eat. oh well...live and learn.
nothing special about it – I have been to this restaurant twice and that would be the last time. The food is below average and a bit pricy. However; the service and the valet is nice.
Decent Food, but decor needs to be updated and host needs a lesson in greeting. – Just tried this place for the first time in March of 2007. I was a bit hestiant, after reading the mixed reviews on citysearch. Went at night, so didn't get too much of a chance to appreciate the outside decor (did see the koi pond, which was neat). The host (male) didn't speak to us, until we greeted him. We had to wait about 15 mins for a table (Thursday night at about 8PM). The inside decor is very outdated...it reminds me of the restaurant that the two kids from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" went to on their date, when he doesn't have his wallet. The waiter was okay. The food was actually pretty decent. I recommend the gouda mac and cheese as a side. It was delightful. Average entrees range from $17-$30.
Luv this place! – Wow there is so much to say about this place. And it's all positive! First of all the building is an old fisherman's warehouse. Upon entering the building you walk across a bridge over a pond filled with teh most beautiful coy fish. Inside there are nets and crates and fishing props. I suggest sitting outside in the back so you can see all the boats coming and going from the Marina. The Warehouse is right on the water so this is always a great dinning experience. The food is fantastic. Burgers delicious and seafood is always fesh. I suggest going on a Sunday for the brunch buffet - you have never had anything like it.
Wow. Wow. The food is just not very good! For a nice-looking restaurant and for ~$30 for a entree, I'd expect at least mediocrity. The food was really disappointing and I am by no means a gourmet. I ordered the prawns and barely finished one prawn -- and I was hungry! My friend's dish was equally disappointing. The server was nice, the ambiance is OK (but with such a great location, they could have done a better job), the lighting makes you feel a little bit like you're being interrogated by the police in one of those old movies.... but none of this really matters because the food really isn't very good! And the parking lot is valet-only, which I find annoying.
Great Location, and That's IT!!!!! – Actually, the service was not bad. However, the food is nothing to brag about. Skip this joint any day. If you are looking to enjoy a meal outdoors, pick up a sanwich and go to burton chace park, which has a great view of the marina. the warehouse looks like its time has come and gone. the menu needs to be revamped because the food is just straight plain and boring. in LA, you just dont need to settle for this low quality. if you dont care what the food tastes like or what you are eating this place is for you. otherwise SKIP THIS JOINT!!!!!!!
Always a great experience at the Warehouse... – The Warehouse is great because it's the only place you can eat outside on a deck - on a Saturday afternoon in MDR - and enjoy the sunny California weather! The food is wonderful, and reasonably priced. I recommend the seafood here (steamed clams & oysters on the half shell), and they have good wine by the bottle (Syrah). I like their lunch menu, and have also been to Sunday brunch which is packed and the food selection is wonderful! There are so many options - so go when you're starving. They have a bevy of shrimp, fish and crab legs for brunch, and great dessert. I've always enjoyed my meals here, and it's a fun place to go on a date, with family, or even with a group of friends to watch sports in the bar area inside.
Great Brunch! – There are only a few places left in LA to go for a buffet style brunch. This is the best brunch for the money. There are a few places that offer a better quality of food, however they cost about 3X as much as The Warehouse brunch. The service was great, the staff is constantly refilling the seafood bar (which is spectacular by the way) and the carving station usually has 3 choices of meats. There is a large variety of foods to choose from. The omelette station and waffle stations are separate which makes the wait much shorter than when the station is shared. The atmosphere makes this a great place to go with a group of friends, have brunch and drink champagne.
Brunch is the way to go! – I have eaten for dinner and the food and service was OK. I also went, spur of the moment, for brunch! That was an experience. We sat outside and ate and had mimosas. For the price, it was great!! The day was beautiful, the food was fresh and tasty. I am a native Cali girl, but go home at least 2x a year. This is a place I try to visit, weather permitting!
For tourists who don't know better – This is the place that makes deals with the hotels. The places hotels send you are never the best. They are terrible. The food here is average at best. The outside decor and coy pond are nice, but thats where it ends. A place that looks that interesting from the outside could never be that great. My whole family was in town, like a party of 15-20 people. I took them here. Big mistake. Cold food, terrible service, and they just couldn't seem to get it right. We left without eating basically. Very embarrasing for me.
