We ordered French toast, pancakes and bacon with homemade ice tea. It all tasted good, but our bill for this basic breakfast came to $56.

We stopped by for drinks and appetizers and had a wonderful time. Great staff, especially the bartender, Victor. What fantastic drinks he made. Everyone made us feel welcome. We will be back.

We stopped by for drinks and apps. Food was ok, sevice was not very good. She dropped the first app and didnt show again. The place was dead, not busy at all. I would not recommend.

I had dinner with friends in this restaurant and it was quite average. As we had no reservation, there was no place inside, so we accepted to have our dinner in the patio. However the patio is shared with the Mexican restaurant next door. So...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
