We have had dinner here before and this was our first time for brunch. This will now be a regular stop each time we visit. They don't miss a beat! The craft cocktail list is so innovative and fresh. Enjoy a Petite Mary and wonder...More

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.

I went for a mid-week dinner with 2 friends. By 9pm they had run out of burgers (pretty poor for a place that is advertised to be open until midnight). I ordered a $25 pasta dish that could only be described as kid's size menu....More

The restaurant is not very large, tables are crowded and the noise level barely tolerable. The service was excellent and the food imaginative and well executed. The wine list was ridiculous for what was listed. I generally complain that the portions are too large but...More

One of the better restaurants on Abbott Kinney. Cozy setup. We were here with a group of 6 people for a business dinner. I live in LA County, so rarely come south for food. They were quick to seat up and give us the menus...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
