Impressive Dinner Near LAX?

Hi, so my future father-in-law will be in town this friday and he has assigned ME the job of finding a great resturaunt for the family to have dinner. I really want to do a great job, so of course, I came here first for your help.

Here are the caveats:
must be within 2-3 miles from LAX and there must be a little atmosphere.

Price and cuisine doesn't matter.

Thank you for your suggestions!

  1. it's 5 miles from LAX, but imho the best choice

    Cafe del Rey
    4451 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey, CA

    1. Why not try the top of the tower at LAX? I believe it's open again and I hear the food is pretty good... you'll definitely find atmosphere since it sits atop the runway at LAX? Good luck!

      1. thank you for your suggestions :)

        1. Fleming's Steakhouse
          2301 Rosecrans Ave
          El Segundo, CA 90245
          Phone: (310) 643-6911

          Minutes from LAX and you will not have to use the freeway.
