As part of my job, I have the privilege of entertaining clients in the best restaurants around the United States. I would rate Darren's in Manhattan Beach as one of the best! First and foremost, the food is exceptional. Secondly, and equally important, the people who cater to your every need are wonderful. The interior of the restaurant is totally "beach cool", comfortable, and encourages you to enjoy yourself. Finally, every time I have visited Darren's, I don't feel like a customer ... I am treated as a friend. I would highly recommend Darren's to anyone.
