Would not recommend this restaurant, there are lots of much better restaurants in Venice. The hostess was very blunt and quite rude. She spent much of her time gossiping with her friends who were sitting in the window. There was no welcome and despite boasting...More

First off, I have to admit we did not eat here. Our visit to Venice Beach was a bit unconventional due to the water conditions so our eating schedule was all over the place. The first night we stopped at this cute cafe it was...More

The food is not the best, and for the price there are much better places on the island. The parking is very difficult and the new location is difficult to find and dark. Outside seating is in a walkway and not pleasant.More

We have visited this restaurant periodically over the past decade. Originally, we really enjoyed this place—quality food, service and atmosphere. The service and the atmosphere are still fine, but all four of us were incredibly disappointed with what we ate. The veal medallions were tough...More

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch. We appreciated that they were open at an off hour in the afternoon and were still serving lunch after 2:30. Had a very good blackened mahi mahi sandwich which was very tasty. My husband enjoyed his wrap but...More

We are snowbirds and always dine at Venice Cafe. Great food, reasonably priced. Summer and early bird menus and monthly wine pairing dinners. Friendly staff. Locals are regulars at the bar. Regular music. Casual. Outdoor seating is an option. During season, better make reservations!

I just ate here on Friday night 6/15/18. I had the salmon with dill sauce, and it was scrumptious. The basil lemonade martini was soooo good, but I only had one. Would have had two if I hadn't been the driver. Our waitress was friendly...More
