The Warehouse Restaurant
4499 Admiralty Way
Marina Del Rey
The Warehouse Restaurant is right on the water in Marina Del Rey. It's kind of a pricey place that serves decent though hardly great food.
I wasn't that hungry when we went so I ordered the sauteed seafood sampler, $25. You can choose four items, so I got the shrimp scampi, lump crab cake, scallops, and calamari.
The shrimp scampi was pretty good. A good hearty buttery-garlic flavor to this. This would be nice over pasta.
Calamari was OK. This wasn't any better than calamari from any other place.
The scallops were great. They were nice and fresh, not chewy and full of flavor.
The crab cake. They only give you one crab cake was ok. I would say about 50/50 in terms of crab and fillers. This was cooked just right but I wish there were more crab in this.
Service was good. We sat outside to look at the water. But the server was attentive and helpful. He kept our drinks refilled and took our order quickly.
I wouldn't go back to Warehouse. Some of the food is good. Some of it is bad. But one constant is the high prices. $25 is just way overprice for the quality and quanity of the food we got. There are many better options in the general area.
