Great restaurant, ideally located, good atmosphere and wonderful service. The food was good, not spectactular, but tasty and well priced. You don't have to go high end every tiem you eat out and this place seems to fit taht mid market spot perfectly. highly recommended.

Friend and I wanted to grab a nice dinner but without too much hassle. It was 9pm on a Sunday and I called down to Fonz's. The guy on the phone was really cool and said come on down! So we did and boy how glad I was that we did! Really nice looking place with a cool vibe. We... More

Fonz's is one of our favorites, food is always great, and staff is is always friendly. Go on Tuesday and get 1/2 off select bottles of wine. We like to sit at the bar rather than a table, went tonight and our bartender/server Julie was great! Another great evening at Fonz's.

Fortunately We were able to get last minute reservations at Fonz's. By far our best dining while in the LA area for spring break. Great service and exceptional cuisine. We took the two teenagers who took it as a personal challenge not to waste a morsel of their New York strip steaks. Do not pass on dessert, key lime pie... More

Elements of our meal were very good ; such as the appetizers. The portion of fish was reasonable, but the accompanying vegetable and rice was surprisingly second rate. The service was poor.

New Year's Eve, we were looking for a place to have dinner, and we stumbled on this place. There was a little porch with some heaters, and an empty table. The inside of the restaurant was full. As we waited, the host was telling people on the phone that they were booked until 10:30, and it was only 6:30. However,... More

Four of us shared tortilla soup, clam chowder, salmon, swordfish, salads, key lime pie and creme brûlée. Every bite was delicious! The service was perfect and if I lived in LA I would definitely be a regular customer!

As a road warrior, I tend to stick to things that I know. However, it can become tedious eating at the same places or same chains all the time- even if they are higher end chains like Fleming’s, et al. I wanted to try something different and asked some local friends for recommendations for a steakhouse near LAX. The response... More
