Best of Manhattan Beach Hands Down 11/29/2008

There are really only 2-3 spots you can go for a great meal in Manhattan Beach and Fonzes is one of them! Great atmosphere and service that can always be counted on. Reserve a large table and bring the friends for a night of good wine and great seafood or steak. Pros: all around just a great place to eat and drink more

The entrees are a 10, the service leaves a bad taste 6/12/2008

Parking was really tough so we were a little late for our reservation that they didn't even have on the books. They sat us in a nice booth anyway and our drink order was taken quickly but then took almost 20 minutes to come out. Finally we put in our order for a calamari app (that was pedestrian at best) and two entrees the pork tenderloin and rib eye. Our server paid us no attention even filling other tables waters right next to us and not even looking at our empty drinks. Pros: ""land"" entrees, desserts Cons: service, parking, calamari, small wine by glass list more

What a nice surprise 3/13/2006

I heard mixed reviews of this place. I've lived in the South Bay for two years now and had yet to try it. Finally, we ventured over for a birthday. We were all pleasantly surprised and wondering aloud, ""why haven't we been here before?"" Though the restaurant was crowded, the service was impeccable. We were even seated in a quiet corner and still had great service. The beef medallions were the hit of our group. My fish (I think it was sea bass?) was a bit too adventurous for its own good. There were too many tastes - butter, lemon, sage or rosemary - going on; which made it good, but not great. Overall, it's a nicely decorated - simple, understated - restaurant with friendly attentive service. We learned (at least in our small sample size) stick with the ""meat and potatoes"" basics here and you'll be pleasantly surprised. Pros: In town, service, food Cons: parking more

Great place to eat and drink 1/17/2006

I love this restaurant. I have been there 3 times and the service is outstanding and the food is even better. Both times I have had a fish dish (the tuna is amazing) and I was not disappointed. Also, the vibe is really casual and fun and the wine list is well-picked and reasonable. The bartenders pour stiff drinks and everyone seems to know each other. Fonz's gives real meaning to a neighborhood restaurant!! I will be back every time I am in Manhattan Beach. Pros: Service, Value, Food Cons: Parking more

Great Food, Great Service! 3/25/2005

My wife and I come her for dinner quite often and we can never seem to get enough of Fonz's. The steak is mouth watering and the seafood is equally good. more

Top Notch 3/20/2005

We gave this place a shot based on it's proximity and the high marks folks had previously given it here on city search. I was not disappointed. Every single aspect of the meal was perfect. The service was attentive without standing over your shoulder. Ahi Appetizer - Delicious Lobster Bisque - A Must Have Cocktails - STIFF! Flat Iron Steak - Good Pork Tenderloin - Fantastic Lava Cake - There went my diet! 2 people, 4 courses and 3 cocktails, including tip: <$120 I look forward to my next meal there. Pros: quality meat and fish, complex/subtle flavor, at the beach more

My Favorite L.A. restaurant 10/1/2004

Fonz's has the best atmosphere and food ! Whenever I visit L.A., a visit to Fonz's is a priority. I love their steaks and their Lobster Bisque is wonderful. I always indulge in dessert - they have an awesome Creme Brulee. I love all the volleyball memorabilia (the place is owned by 1996 Olympic Silver Medalist (beach volleyball) Mike Dodd). Pros: great food, great atmosphere, foodreasonably priced Cons: , wine too expensive more

will definitely go back!!! 6/17/2004

i tried Fonz's tonite w/ my bf, and found it great. we both decided we will definitely come back again. food & drinks are great, and i especially love the food they have on their special menu. one bad thing about the special menu is the lack of prices; however, it does have good detailed description on their specials. we ordered our food pretty much all from this menu, and they were all great. we'll have to go back another time to try some of the food on the original menu. Pros: yummy food, ambience, drinks Cons: , limited more

is the editor serious? 2/24/2003

I am totally confused as all the user ratings for this restaurant are fantastic!!..YET, the ratings on the front tab denote ONLY the editors opinion, but not all users...seems fishy to me...but onto the review. I've been to this restaurant many times, and I can't say enough about the friendly atmosphere, hip crowd, and delicious food. The filet Mignon is great, as well as any of the pasta dishes. I've been thru almost everything on the menu, and most specials and I can't say I disliked anything. Great food, Great atmosphere! Pros: Hip crowd, wonderful food, cool owners Cons: parking more

Amazing Food 2/21/2003

The Fillet is so tender and the sauce is delicious. There is a greens salad with a homemade rasberry vinigrette and sweet roasted pecans that is a definite crowd pleaser. And, for comfort food, they have a wonderful meatloaf Pros: food quality, friendly service, good martinis Cons: parking, a little noisy more

Best Food In MB!! 5/20/2002

Perfect combination of beach lifestyle and good food. This is my favorite steak/seafood place in the South Bay. Filet medallions or ahi for an appetizer and the Ahi or Swordfish for an entree..... Pros: service, food, atmosphere more

Best Food in Manhattan Beach 5/12/2002

The best of an upscale neighborhood without the snooty atmostphere. Fonz is totally low key and has great service. A great blend of beach lifestyle and good food. more
