Asian fusion done right.

I'm always nervous about Asian fusion restaurants, as I usually find them very half baked. Chaya is different. It's honed to perfection, and is really THE definition of Asian fusion. This was actually my second time here, by accident. The first time was with a large group of coworkers and clients... read more

One of my favourite restaurants, never disappoints. Service and food is always fantastic. The sea bass mets in your mouth, tough to chose between that dish or the cod. Only disappointment is they did not have the oysters rockerfeller on there menu any longer. Shame as they were always awesome. Go and enjoy!

We had dinner here with a party of 6. The service was spot on. Not intrusive but always available. The food was impressive. Flavor and presentation was fantastic. We dined on a Friday evening. The restaurant was packed. A trendy hot spot for dining in Venice. Make reservations ahead.

The food of this famous institution was no question great but our server was amazing and even while she was juggling 4 table, we never ever felt that we were rushed or neglected and that too me is what will get me there again.

This restaurant is quite popular, but overrated. On a recent trip, it was very crowded, loud. Service was very slow. Food was mediocre at best. To add a little insult to injury, they charged a 3% "wellness" fee. It was explained that this went to healthcare for the employees. While I would not have minded this charge had we been... More

Maybe it was the timing -- we went during Dine LA, and tried the Prix Fixe menu. It was our first time there, despite wanting to visit for several years. We got a reservation within 30 minutes of dining -- perhaps, not the best sign, but as we arrived, the place was packed. We arrived about 10 minutes early and... More

I love this place - it has an old school Italian familiarity. The is always fresh and their Mint Tea is to die for.

We rang in the new year here with another couple and it was a blast! The price was good and we brought our own wines as the was a 20$ corking fee. The food was delicious. A couple if issues were first, they seemed overwhelmed and service fell behind with getting ice buckets for our wine and champagne, which got... More

We had dinner here our first night in Venice. Really nice atmosphere, with very good food at reasonable prices. Waiter was friendly and helpful, and although the restaurant was crowded, we didn't feel like we were on top of the people next to us.

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
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 happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
