  • "Tiny Peruvian scallops, cold and fresh, have a penetrating nutty sweetness only heightened by a pinch of spiced salt."
  • The scallops are a must!
  • Expect a mixed batch of old and new seafood dishes, alongside a thoughtful list of intoxicants. Early standouts are the Thai Shellfish Coconut Soup, Albacore Tartare, and Loup de Mer.
  • What vegetarians eat at FWD.
  • The scallops, sea bass, and beet salad. Service was top notch, too!
  • Try to snag one of the two "reservation tables" on Opentable, otherwise its walk-ins. THIS is the best seafood restaurant in the South Bay.
  • Amazing King Crab, Blue Crab, Crab cakes, ceviche and hamachi!!! Get it all....oh and the service was the best I've ever had!!!
  • A visit to fishing with Dynamite is not complete without an order of squash rolls
  • Best clam chowder!
  • Forgo the usual mignonette and cocktail adornment for ponzu, yuzu koshu mayo or saffron aioli.
  • The raw bar, which includes a dozen or so varieties of oysters, is one of the best in LA.
  • The people here are as lovely as their food.
  • Everything is amazing. Get oysters then let them guide you through their well thought out menu.
  • Selection of oysters and scallop.
  • Exceptional restaurant! Fantastic, friendly service and amazing food. Favorites are the puruvian scallop, oysters, hamachi crudo, salmon tartare, mussels. They also have a very accomplished bartender.
  • Best seafood in Manhattan Beach. Hands down.
  • Reservations are a must due to small space. Try as much of the amazing seafood dishes as you can.
  • Start the menu top left and come back till you reach bottom right. Repeat!

  • We did the Dine LA menu, what an incredible deal! I had the raw bar appetizer, blue crab po'boy entree, and salted caramel pretzel bread pudding with mascarpone ice cream. So good!
