An amazing oceanfront view – I loved this restaurant! Although the menu did not offer anything for my kid, we asked the server and she brought out a suprise...a small portion of spaghetti with marinara sauce that was perfect for my child. Next she brought out the fresh bread which was amazing, and then my filet mignon which made my mouth water. Last, the warm apple tart that contrasted with the cold ice cream ended my meal perfectly. I highly recommend this restaurant. The servers were very kind and looked professional but were so welcoming that they still made me feel like I was at my mom's home for dinner. Also, the wine went beautifully with the oceanside view. I absolutely had the best experience here at Pacific Edge.
Great food and service! – I took my mother and grandmother here while they were in town. Service is very important to me and the service was wonderful here! The waiter told us about unique specials they had, the soup will sounded creative and had an Asian flair. However, we ordered from the menu and the "suggested wine" to go with each dish. Dinner was fantastic! The portions were perfect despite what people say. It was just enough and gave room for a desert or app. Even though we didn't order desert the waiter created a dish of his own as a complementary treat! The atmosphere seemed fancy, but the staff was kind and comfortable.
Delicious! – This is such a beautiful restaurant... it has an amazing view of the peir/ocean, especially around sunset. It is a very romantic restaurant with an imtimate setting. The food was absolutely delicious! I started with the soup du jour, which was lobster bisque... and i loved it! Everywhere I go I always order this soup, but this was by far the best I've ever tasted. Then I had one of the specials of the night... wild sock-eye salmon, which also left me impressed. Then I finished off with a trio of creme brulee and each one was a different flavor. I've never tried flavored creme brulee before so I found this very creative and interesting. The whole experience was wonderful and I will definately be back!
Bad Restaurant – Poor service, small portions only added to the miserable experience at Pacific Edge. When we asked a question about the listed specials, the server needed to go ask someone and then told us that the specials were sold out last night. The food was not hot and it took a very long time to arrive. They do not offer any bread or even water when you first sit down. The place was pretty empty but they would not give us a table by the window even though they were expecting a large party, that never arrived.
We will never go here again.
Impressive! – I recently ate at Pacific Edge, and I was very impressed. First of all, I was sat at a window table with an amazing ocean view. Then I ordered a four course tasting menu which included: french onion soup, sea scallops provencal, filet mignon, and cream brulee all for $45! I also added a wine pairing, which included a glass of wine with each course for only $15! I recomend the tasting menu to everyone... each course was wonderful. I was so full but I kept eating because the food was absolutely delicious. (It was probably the best filet I've ever had.) Aside from the taste, the presentation of the dishes was also beautiful. The service was great... our server was friendly and attentive. I love this restaurant, and I would recomend to anyone!
Best kept secret with an awesome view of sunset and Redondo Beach Pier for a romantic good value dinner – We went there again on a Friday night for dinner, my wife, myself and my youngest son. We were served the crab cake to start out. It was wonderful (my son enjoyed it as well even though he does not like seafood nor crustacean too much). My dinner was the sesame crusted Ahi tuna. It was done to perfection. It was seared perfectly and evenly on 4 sides and rare inside. I just hope the portion will be bigger since it was som delicious. My wife had the salmon and it was firm, daker in color, and it did not seem to be farm raised. The texture was flaky and the taste was flavorful. The salmon serving was more generous. My son had the chicken and it was juicy and tender as well. The ambience was so relaxing and romantic. The dinning area faces the Redondo Beach Pier with huge picturesque. You can feel the pounding waves from ocean and watch the gorgeous sunset during the summer month. And even though this place is not very big but the tables weren't very closed to each other. You don't have to rub elbow with your next table. The service was a bit slow to our taste. But with the view and tranquility, that didn't bother my wife or I a bit. My teenage son was ignored but what do you expect from a teenager. The owner told us that the restaurant also serves a wine tasting event every month. The cost is about $65 per person for a 4 or 5 course dinner pairing with wines. This is also a perfect place for the 4th of July firework we were told. We will try that next year since we already miss this year's 4th of July celebration.
Great food - much better than chain, it's made fresh daily and the view is great too. – I have to tell you this place is a hidden jewel. The food is excellent, I highly recommend it. Eveything is good, I don't like chain food so this place is a winner. I had the Lamb special and my date had a Halibut special, nice presentation and the servers were very friendly and nice. Wine service was done by the owner, she was very attentive. I like discovering new places where the owner cares about the quality of the food and service. Servers are very nice too, it's kind of like family business but with a professional chefs.
Not too pricy, average menu is around $22.00, it has a great view of the ocean, it's little hard to find the first time because it's located on the second level of the Redondo Beach Pier. CZ
A Truly Bad Experience – Perhaps the worst dining experience we have had in a very long time. The food taste was OK but everything else was pretty bad. The service was very slow and inattentive. At two hours after opening they were out of the soup of the day and the daily pasta! The view is OK but much better at other restaurants in the RB Pier area. We had to ask for bread twice before it was delivered. When the credit card slip was provided it was a hand written unreadable form and the original invoice was missing. During our 2+ hours wasted here not one other customer arrived, except those attending a birthday party.
Great restaurant - ocean view and romantic atmosphere – We came here looking for a restaurant where we can host a banquet, and were very pleasantly surprised! The service was very personable and not overbearing.
For the starter, we had the carrot ginger soup with a touch of coconut. Very nice! Our main course was filet mignon, excellent and prepared just to our liking. For those who can't decide on which wine to order, there is a wine tasting option that does not disappoint.
This place can be a little difficult to find on your first time out. There is no need to venture onto the pier, just go to the top level parking and you'll be right near it.
For those looking for a trendy hot spot with lots of people ordering marginal meals at extreme prices, this is not the place for you. Go to Hollywood for that. This is a place with excellent food, a romantic ambiance, and very good service. I will recomend this place to everyone I know.
Nothing Special – We (party of 2) arrived at a completely empty restuarant at 6:00 pm on a Friday evening and were left sitting in the lobby for about 5 minutes before a hostess finally arrived to seat us (we had reservations). We ordered a bottle of wine from a fairly short wine list and asked about the specials. We were told that there were no specials this evening. This is significant because the menu offers a very limited selection without the specials that are referenced by the menu. I was also surprised to see that the menu was somewhat different from what is shown on their web page. The service was somewhat amateurish and the food was just okay. We left at about 7:30, at which time there were a total of 3 parties dining. (Tony's, which you can see from the window was packed full of people). All in all, the experience can be summed up as "nothing special".
