We were staying in Torrance and our hosts suggested that we try dining at Depot. Very impressive building and decor. Food was very good, excellent steaks, good service. Pudding helpings were huge (we had been warned!)

The menu has both Classic and Eclectic dining options. The outside doesn't do justice to the inside. The vintage design provides a cozy lounge, divided floor spacing between cozy booths, intimate two-tops, family style tables and a adjoining room for more privacy.
