This is one of the finest restaurants in all of Los Angeles, something one would never expect at the pier in Redondo Beach. It was equal to anything I've encountered in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood or Santa Monica. The food was exquisite in both taste and presentation. The wait staff and manager were polite, efficient and especially knowledgeable as to their food and preparation. After reading some of the reviews on here, we almost cancelled our reservation. The fact of the matter is this restaurant had it's grand opening in the beginning of May 2009, and yet if one looks they'll see reviews far prior to that date. Sadly this reviewing system ties addresses to locations, and not the current restaurant. The majority of the reviews pertain to the former restaurant at that same location. Nothing of this current restaurant reflects the previous business there, beyond address. Do yourself a HUGE favor and try their superlative fare, you'll be truly delighted. That you dine over the water with picture perfect views, just adds to the already extensive list of pluses Maison Riz has to offer you.
