Enjoyable dinnwr

Food was very good and menu was extensive. They also had a good drink menu. Went here for dinner with my husband and we both enjoyed the food. The atmosphere was a little lacking as we felt too dressed up in nice jeans and a shirt. Regardless, the food is really good if you are looking for a great... read more

This is the only restaurant we visited twice during our trip to the La La Land. We really liked the general atmosphere and the service. Also, the menu had something for everyone, and all the food was delicious. I particularly recommend the Mexican breakfast options!

To start the experience it was a Beautiful day and a very friendly hostess. The waiter was nice but he was not very good at all. Then to be topped by an unappealing dinner. Greasy Grilled Tuna and some fried greasy plantains that tasted the same as the Tuna. To be followed by them forgetting my French Fires and Salad... More

I had a big salad and by companion the florentine enchiladas. We both found the food to be decent, but neither of us felt the need to rave, especially given the prices.

Our experience did not track with the latest reviews. The service was fine and friendly but the food was pedestrian. We had both the Ahi tuna tacos and the fish tacos (the fish could have been fresher), neither of which was memorable. Fortunately the dirty martinias were good if a little pricey. For us it is not worth a return... More

Mercede's Cuban Grill is quietly tucked away just a block from the boardwalk on Washington in Venice Beach. Located in the heart of it all, it has amazing food at reasonable prices. The Picadillo Bartolito (cuban hash) baked over sweet plantains is delicious. But the best app is the Goat cheese, Fresh Berries & Beet Crostini (marinated in balsamic, mint... More

Eat here for about the eigth time in 3 years.wow,it never disapoints. We have always found the food to be different,exciting and tasty.when we told the waiter that we loved the plantains in the starter he bought us out a small different dish with plantains try.on the house. So still my favourite restaurant.
