This place is awesome. The decor and ambiance in the place is perfect. Its the elegance of a 5 star restaurant but the casual dress of a regular restaurant. The selection of french toast is incredible. I had the Very Berry french toast...delicious. Fresh berries and a thick slice of French toast made this breakfast pleasure to eat. This is... More

Lovely ambiance, a wide and excellent menu selection, attentive service...what's not to love! This is one of our very favorite once a week restaurant stops in our Marina del Rey neighborhood. We are so grateful that it is here!

Have been here many times during the last 6 months. In fact you might say we're regulars. Since we've returned frequently and have even brought friends here you could say we like more than we dislike it. Tonight, much to my dismay, I had the awfullest dish there I ever had. So let me caution you. They may be good... More

After my first visit, I can already say I love Beach 26 Café! My friend and I were looking for brunch spots on Saturday afternoon, and came across this café since we wanted to visit Venice Beach afterwards (right down the street). While they didn't have the fairly low-priced unlimited mimosa option we were looking for, they do offer a... More

A friend recommended 26 Beach and now so am I. The 5 of us all ordered different brunch options: Reese's pieces French toast, Nutella French toast, the Elvis, scrambled eggs w/homemade chili on top of linguine and plain scrambled eggs. Everyone was thrilled with their meals! The place is charming, the waitstaff was very friendly. We went at an "off"... More

Great service, expansive menu! We enjoyed a late dinner with a local and had a very enjoyable, low-key experience. I had the gumbo (not as good as in New Orleans, but pretty good!), the others ordered tomato bisque (loved it!) and a salad. We shared an amazing chocolate cake for dessert. I'm pretty sure we were the only tourists in... More

Met some friends for dinner at 26 Beach...didn't quite know what to expect based on the website and menu. The blend of "nicer" dinner entrees, burgers, and salads is great for groups with a broad set of tastes. All that we had was well prepared. The space is comfortable and I think good for families and larger groups. Only wine... More

I stopped in on a busy early Saturday afternoon to have a glass of wine at the bar. The waitress offered a choice of 2 different Pinot Grigios and suggested a small plate of French bread and butter to accompany it. Total charge with tip about $15. Perfect!

Nice, somewhat intimate restaurant just a few blocks from Venice Beach. Nice beer selection. Food was very good, I had a chicken sandwich. Staff was very cordial, easy to talk with, and helpful. I'd go back!
