Located in the Arts District near the ocean, this eatery is a delight. Artwork abounds as you dine, service is excellent and there are plenty of places to walk and see after you dine.

Utopia is a nice little restaurant in the downtown Long Beach area. They have a simple menu and nice staff. My wife and I tried the Utopia burger which is a nice fresh take on a normal burger. We will be back again.

A full selection of Italian dishes are complimented with an interesting collection of eclectic dishes. The Caribbean scallops we're very nicely done. Service was friendly.
