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

Even though we have been in the South Bay for years, I can't believe we never heard of this restaurant. It is located in a small strip mall but when you enter the restaurant, it is decorated very nice and relaxing. The decor is very modern and upper scale. My husband had the Salmon crusted with potato and really enjoyed... More

We knew it would be a great night when our server suggested a red wine named "TroubleMaker"! Party of three, each had a different seafood dish......my wife had the potato crusted salmon in a wonderful dill sauce. Our son had the pistachio encrusted Mahi-Mahi while I had the Tiger Shrimp with rosoto in a red pepper puree. All the sauces... More

I have been a regular at Gina Lee's for over 10 years and every time I return, I feel like the friend they were hoping to see! Scott and Gina really make everyone who walks through that door feel special and genuinely welcome. "Relaxed yet elegant" is exactly how I would describe the atmosphere and the experience. I honestly feel... More

My son and I absolutely LOVED our meal at Gina Lees! Because it's located in a strip mall right next to my neighborhood grocery, I never really gave this restaurant much thought. Who, after all, wants to have a fine meal with a view of the shopping carts scattered willy-nilly in the parking lot? Obviously lots of people since we... More
