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

Just landed from a 14 hour flight and wanted a venue with some buzz and flair to keep me awake. This venue had a combination of a nice bar and an out door vibe. Word of advice - stay down rather than upstairs. We were...More

Chicken wings are very tasty with several ingredients. So is the Octopus. Flat iron steak is very good too. Friendly waiters. We enjoined the dinner.

We booked for three people and were seated upstairs which was great. The food is Mediterranean style and the wine from France and Italy everything was perfect and delicious we loved it all! Most dishes are to share between the table which is great.

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
