As a group of 7 we were shown to a great table by a smiling host who explained the menu in the briefest terms and confirmed that they could offer wine pairings. Printed menus were whisked away (not that any of us could have read...More

Great place. We had a light dinner on a christmas evening here with my wife. The place was semi-crowded but they managed to get us a nice spot without having a reservation. Their mocktailes and wine both delicious, and the menu is quite rich and...More

I went with my friend. There were only two seats so we took those. It was the long table that many people eat together. However I was not used to it. Actually It was uncomfortable. The food taste was not bad. But too salty to...More

Good brunch with all classic brunch dishes cooked at perfection. A nice choice for a Sunday’s brunch. The expresso was far from perfection though

Service, service, service. The food was amazing as expected but so many times restaurants fail at what really sets a meal apart from an experience. Amy did a excellent job with our table from start to finish. The service didn't feel rushed but very attentive....More

Open air LA restaurant with organic menu delights. beet salad was excellent but the fusilli and rigatoni were very ordinary. The service outstanding but the room when filled gets noisy. Would go back for the chicken or branzino-not the pasta.

We were sat upstairs away from all the pretty airy space downstairs despite having booked a week in advance and requesting it. The service was very slow, our coffees arrived luke warm, and by the time brunch was served they were basically cold and undrinkable....More

This restaurant (together with Salt Air) is part of the culinary, ingredient-centered wave started by Gjelina that makes Abbot Kinney a true foodie destination. It is modern, cool, with excellent music, friendly staff and deceptively simple sophisticated food. Unlike Gjelina's and Salt Air's food, the...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
