We have been to Fonz' many times but recently decided to go there with a large group of 7. We asked for the front window in our reservation and sure enough they saved that table for us. The service was absolutely superb and everyone loved their food. With 7 people we ordered many different dishes but I heard only compliments... More

We dined at Fonz's last night and had a wonderful experience. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic. We started with an ahi tuna and avocado appetizer which was so fresh and tasty I think it may have been caught just before we arrived. For dinner I had the meat loaf, which was a huge portion, and the best... More

Went here with a friend a couple of weeks ago for a birthday dinner. I ordered the seared crusted ahi tuna because it's one of my faves and not everyone does it right. Fonz's got it right and were very accommodating when I asked for wasabi since it was left out. My friend ordered the salmon but spent most of... More

Not as good 2nd time around. last time I gave a 5 star. This time we had halibut ( good), Porthouse (average) and Lobster Bisque (very good). I am giving it 3 stars because our bill after tip was around $140. Good meal but average for the price. porterhouse had a sauce on it that just seemed to hide the... More

The Fonz has such a great menu. I have tried several dishes and they are all outstanding. Their waitstaff is top notch, friendly, and knowledgeable about the dishes and nightly specials. They have several dished served over risotto and I never leave hungry. Even though they have great seafood dishes, the Chef Izzy's Pasta is so unique and delicious that... More

We were there two nights ago, to celebrate our last night out in LA before going back to Italy. I wasn't that hungry so I just had the tortilla soup and a salad (don't remember the name...it had bacon and blue cheese crumbles in it) and my husband had the mahi mahi. OMG the food was just amazing and perfectly... More

This is a club-style, intimate place that I think is very romantic. We had our first date, rehearsal dinner and 10th anniversary dinner here. The steaks are excellent, of course, but the sides, salads and specials are all creative fresh and delicious. And there's a great wine list full of top notch California wines that aren't overpriced. The service is... More

Our group ordered the pork chops, ahi tuna, and house meatloaf which were huge portions but excellent. The pork was a stand out. The accompanying vegetables were very poor unfortunately, only down side to this restaurant which has a nice atmosphere and great service.

Food was excellent, service was great. Prices are on the high side but worth it. Save room for dessert, we tried 4 of them, all to die for!
