This restaurant had been recommended and was in my guidebook. The food (brunch) was ok but really nothing special. We had to wait ages for our meals to arrive too so it was a bit disappointing

Had read great things about this place but found it lacking when i visited for brunch. The food was interesting (and tasty) but overall the menu lacked completeness i.e. didnt have enough choice in some areas. Decor is great, but the tables were really squashy,...More

Went with a colleague for dinner. We had the three course menu that the chef cooked for that day. Food was tasty except for the ravioli, the pasta was a little hard, the fish was amazing. We had several cocktails and they were very good...More

This is fantastic restaurant. Even the basics -- like bread and butter and appetizer olives are exceptional. The mussels and the halibut were the best we've ever had. The cocktails are very imaginative and I believe many are original creations. Our server was very informed...More

Yes it is expensive, but I think well worth it. We had a long wait for a table, but as we walked in without a reservation on a Friday night that makes sense. A couple of drinks at the bar passes the time. The food...More

Simple place and menu with great food and service. The plates are small and not good to share. Flavors are really good. The one dish I'll come back for is the halibut, delicate and delicious.

We went in here for brunch and sat at the bar. The food was delicious as were the cocktails. We had the burger and the smoked salmon- both yummy. The bartenders were very knowledgeable about the food and one of them even let my husband...More

A Friday night here involves as many people as possible crammed into tables. Appears to be the 'in' spot to be seen in. I wouldn't recommend if you want to talk to your friends as the music is REALLY loud! Service was good, flat iron...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
