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

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
