We've chosen this place to celebrate St.Valentines Day with my girlfriend, and enjoyed the menu, especially duck carpaccio and artichokes.

This was my first visit to Hal's new location at 1025 Abbott Kinney. It was for dinner with friends on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The restaurant was not very busy, so it was quiet and good for conversation. The craft cocktails are good and the...More

We sat in the comfortable, rustic garden area and while filled with stylish crowd it was not too busy or noisy. Food was amazing and the appetizers were to die for. Watermelon and crab starter with micro greens and vinaigrette was simply exceptional. Good cocktails...More

First of all, the address at Trip Advisor on this restaurant is wrong. Hal's closed at the old address and has re-opened at 1025 Abbott Kinney Blvd on a quieter part of the street. The menu is exciting, but it is nothing like the old...More

I had dinner with friends in this restaurant and it was quite average. As we had no reservation, there was no place inside, so we accepted to have our dinner in the patio. However the patio is shared with the Mexican restaurant next door. So...More

This is a great place to go in Venice. This is an old old restaurant for Venice but they systematically provide a great bar and dinner experience. Great food, service, wine and atmosphere at reasonable prices Cannot ask for more than that

Fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff all around! Attended during a busy Saturday night, our service was excellent! We started with drinks and Calamari. Calamari was juicy, fresh tasting and a very generous portion! We all had the turkey burger and substituted salad (for a small upcharge)...More

Low key, decent meal in an attractive space. Simple bowl of soup and a burger were great. Wines were good and reasonably priced. Service was efficient and friendly. No complaints, and recommended.

While some of the restaurants on gentrified Abbot Kinney are pretentious, this one is definitely not and its longevity attests to that. The atmosphere is upscale, the food delicious, the wait staff professional and pleasant. We come here annually around Thanksgiving and the staff greets...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
