Great atmosphere - a buzzing restaurant and very busy with queues on the door. Sat outside on the terrace/patio - lovely warm evening and despite the pleasant ambience, a little too dark to read the menus without resorting to phone lights. Service was good, although...More

Let me start by saying that I think the food here is amazing! My husband and I had lunch here and we loved everything we ate. The kale salad is amazing and the purple queen beans were good too. My husband loved their grilled peach...More

Nice little place in Venice. The location is nice as there are many nice little shops nearby. The food is a bit above average but not excellent. Nice place to chill and have a sandwich or salad definitely not fine dining. Food takes pretty long...More

Gjelina: Nice place with great food! Very pretentious cocky doorwaiter at the entrance. Not a great start! Busy place with a lot happening. Not so much family or kids friendly.

I came here for dinner with my friend from out of town. She loves trendy restaurants and this definitely fit the bill. Me on the other hand- trendy is overrated. There's a lot of communal tables, it's quite dark inside, and it's expensive! (FYI the...More

Great spot in Venice for a delicious meal! I opted for the smoked trout salad and it was fresh and full of flavor. They have lovely outdoor seating. Service was a little slow but it was extremely busy. Stop by if you're in Venice!

Venice
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
