Mothers Are Ranked #1 at The Admiral Risty

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13, a day set aside to honor Mothers and to thank them for their love, inspiration and support. And, what nicer way to celebrate your Mother than with a family dinner at the Five-Star Admiral Risty Restaurant in Rancho Palos Verdes.

The Risty’s blufftop location overlooking the sparkling Pacific, its consistently excellent fare, warm ambience, and exceptional service have been key to its being the first choice of many families for all of their special occasion celebrations.

“In an effort to accommodate as many guests as possible,” said owner Wayne Judah, we will offer dinner service only from 11:00 a.m., both in the Seaside Lounge and in the dining room.” The restaurant’s expansive menu of more than 30 seafood, fresh fish, steak and chicken entrees, including entrée salad selections, offers something delectable for every palate and every size appetite. The knowledgable crew is always pleased to recommend the perfect wine pairing from The Risty’s Golden Bacchus Wine List. Full-Bar service is also available.

Call today! (310) 377-0050 or visit www.admiralristy.com. The Admiral Risty is located at 31250 Palos Verdes Drive West at Hawthorne Boulevard, Rancho Palos Verdes.
