Charcoal makes a virtue of simplicity, yet everything is delicious. We shared a charcoal grilled maine lobster which was simply sublime. Excellent wine list and the vegetable dishes are incredibly good. It is noisy, but in a buzzy lively way. Not far from Venice Beach...More

Fantastic Steak but the choices of side orders are limited. The service was ok but not really helpful if you ask for things that are not listed on the menu. Interior design is pretty modern and puristic. Don’t sit at the bar as the TV...More

The restaurant is nicely located in charming Venice about 5 min walk from the beach. We arrived by Uber without any problems. If you have your own drive the Valet service is USD 12. The atmosphere is very relaxed and rather noisy with high volume...More

Lots of grilled meats, lots of grilled everything, actually. Charming space, great service, tons of interesting appetizers, veggies and salads, enough of them to make a meal for four if you share them around. One drawback was the $12 valet service in an area with...More

My favourite meal in LA by a country mile. This restaurant is owned by a 2 Michelin star chef who wanted a second, more relaxed venue to eat in. The food is incredible. We started with a charred calamari mixed with crisp green beans, cherry...More

This place was the best place we could find around the area we were staying in (marina del ray) so we weren't sure about it till we got there. When we arrived we were impressed with the look of the place and the lively atmosphere....More

Came here with my husband. So many delicious choices here. We had the spare ribs which were so unbelievingly good. And the chicken wings which my husband loved. We had the NY strip and shared it. So so good. Not many options for vegetarians here,...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
