I have passed by this bar many times and have only recently stopped in to see what it was about. The waitstaff and bartender are extremely friendly and the honey chiptotle wings are to die for, absolutely outstanding food item and expansive beer collection. Love it, love it, love it.

Came here with friends for drinks and appetizers. It's small, but the service was good, and the atmosphere was pleasant. The appetizers were also delicious, so I would recommend this place if you are looking for a good place to stop for drinks.

Just off a long-haul flight into LAX and checked into the Four Seasons nearby, the last thing any our group of seven wanted to do was to go to an up-market place for dinner, so the concierge's suggestion of The Third Stop proved to be right on the money. This was a friendly and welcoming little neighbourhood bar and restaurant... More

I did not eat here so I can not comment on the food, but the beer selection here is brilliant. If you are looking to try some quirky new beers then this is your place, they even let you sample it first before you dive into your favorite. The bartenders here are super nice and will if they have time... More

I just came here for some drinks with a friend and it was nice. We sat outside and enjoyed some wine and beer. A decent wine/beer lit to choose from and good prices.

This is a gem of a spot, the food is great, they have a real brick oven, which turns out fantastic small pizzas! I've tried many different menu items and have not been disappointed. A very large selection of beers on tap as well. Great quality. Parking is tough, it's LA!

Nice spot where I met an associate for lunch. We knew it was the basic designer burger and lots of draft beer places, but we expected more than one staff person on the floor. Actually uncomfortable to see other diners needing to wave down the single staff person for simple requests. Food ok, but would not return.

Great place with a large selection of beer & wine. No hard liquor. Staff is friendly and noligable about wine. Happy hour has some good options for food. Try tuna tartar and Mac & cheese. Parking does suck in the area but they provide valet.

I was surprised to see the poor reviews on this site. I visited Cafe Veneto recently and had a fantastic time. The food there is fantastic. The restaurant serves family style, which means that everybody shares. This means that the dishes come out whenever they're ready and adds a very casual feel to the dinner. The service was amazing.
