The Admiral Risty Restaurant Review

: This hillside restaurant on the Palos Verdes Peninsula has a spectacular ocean view and a menu of competently prepared seafood, steaks and Italian dishes. The upscale atmosphere attracts a mature crowd that appreciates fresh fish and old-school preparations, and the veteran team here keeps them happy. Regulars start with oysters Rockefeller, a crab cocktail or steamed mussels, before moving on to items like seafood brochette, chicken piccata, linguine with clams or steaks. Not much has changed since its debut in 1966, and that is a comforting quality for the locals. Order a bowl of soup and a pair of appetizers and you have an ample meal for two people --- which is good, because the prices definitely have changed since 1966. An expansive dessert list features seasonally fresh strawberry shortcake, peach and blackberry cobbler, and caramel-orange-pecan bread pudding. The primarily Californian wine list offers mostly familiar labels, and prices are relatively tame.
