13 of us went out to Gina Lee's Bistro. They were able to accommodate us at last minute. We all enjoyed it. Most portions come in two sizes and the small is more than enough for most people. I shared a large with my wife and son. The Bento Box was several small samples that together was huge. They were... More

Gina Lees has been around a while now and it continues to be creative, delicious but true to it's original menu which has so many stand by dishes - like the whole catfish - that we love. We only ever have one negative to say about Gina Lees and it's never about the wonderful food or lovely service. The acoustics... More

A nice mix of flavors and ingredients. Light and fresh fare. I'm not a big asian fusion fan, but their fish entrees were very good. The front of house staff were very courteous and attentive. The house salad comes with Moo Shu. I love the sauce that accompanied this dish. My wife had the strip steak which was ok and... More

My boyfriend and I tried out this place starting out with appetizers mostly to get a feel for the food and atmosphere and possibly a place to come back to on occasion. We were very disappointed with selections but also came to the conclusion that they don't have enough business yet for the food to be freshly rotated. Be aware... More

The glazed whole catfish is the best meal you can get in L.A.! Non descript place in a strip mall but friendly service and a fantastic menu, and well worth the drive from anywhere in the southland.

I live nearby and have not been to this restuarant for 6 years. Now I remembered why. Really low grade food at ridiculous prices. Lettuce wraps with floppy bitter lettuce. Crispy Won Tons, served up in 45 seconds from order. How? A very ordinary Bento Box for $23. You have to be kidding. Really I write this in the hope... More

Friends took us here and so I guess it was not really a surprise. But this is a friendly and pleasant restaurant with good service and an interesting mix of menu choices. Split a salad. Pick an entrée. Try the seafood.

An easy place to get to, strip mall, but a very exceptional eatery. Went with friends who knew the owners and found everyone very attentive and on top of everything. The food was super, a small but definitive wine list and wonderful family atmosphere. Excellent Korean and fusion offerings - well worth the stop.

When you pull up to a strip mall next to a Vons you are not expecting a great restaurant. But you will find that Scott and Gina, provide a great experience. The wind list is exceptional, the selection of food and appetizers is great. Their is not a bad choice on the menu, and I should know I have enjoyed... More
