Napa Valley comes to the South Bay

  • Aug 26, 2010
Just when I thought the dining scene in the South Bay was nonexistent, along came Tin Roof Bistro.  Finally, a place that's just right for families, daters, singles at the bar, or a group for "bocce hour" on the real bocce court out front!  

I had my first dinner experience here over a year ago, and I have been back time and again, and Tin Roof never misses the mark.  I have had quiet, romantic dinners over a bottle of wine and slow-braised beef short ribs (so decadent, you can almost forget you're on a date!) to a casual Friday happy hour with my friends over pizza and beer on the bocce court.  Each experience is unique and delicious! 

Then there's the best kept secret in Manhattan Beach - the Private Dining Room.  They just opened a new private dining room in the back that houses the wine cellar.  It's the cutest space, looks like you're in a Napa Valley tasting room.  All the same food from the restaurant is served there, so if you're having a birthday party or baby shower, or corporate meeting, you don't have to serve your guests "banquet food".  I just recently took a tour of the wine cellar, and they have private member's lockers there, too, so you can become part of the wine community at Tin Roof.  It's so cool!

Welcome to Manhattan Beach, Tin Roof Bistro!

This place sounds so neat! I love that there's a bocce court in front and that private dining room sounds fab. Thanks for sharing, Nancy!

If you order a pizza, get it "well done" otherwise it comes out a little doughy for my tastes.

Good for large groups and they have a REALLY nice private room in back for very large groups and outside patio too. For food, they have a large menu with many options, but Tin Roof has become my spot if i want a chicken sandwich. Sometimes you just want chicken sandwich ya know?

Simmzy's sister restaurant has focus on wine and a broader menu w/ pizzas. Great option w/ little fuss...

I ate at the Tin Roof Bistro last night and came away impressed. This is the second new restaurant in the area by the same family. The other, Simmzy's is always packed and is a great concept so I had high hopes for this one. Tin Roof is in the Manhattan Village Mall and I think that puts it at a disadvantage since many diners, including myself, would prefer to eat closer to the beach and away from Sepulveda. The location within the mall mitigates this a bit since it is on the sleepy side of the …

Braised beef sando is very good (but very rich). Bocce ball court outside is cool. Otherwise? Pretty average.
