Recommend Venice Hi Hop XPA if you enjoy west coast style IPA. We had BATA (bacon, arugula, tomato, aioli on ciabatta) and burger; everything was delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. You may be seated at a long table right next to other groups but our situation did not seem awkward. Some patio seating was in the sun but we... More

We weren't sure why to eat but we kept walking and decided on this place. I'm so glad we did. The food was amazing. I'm a vegetarian and I like to try to eat organic and I couldn't have asked for a better place. The burgers were customizable and they even had a hard cider I liked (from Oregon). If... More

Hostess seemed frustrated as well but there was nothing she could do. Atmosphere was great the food was good the guys liked the Lamb burgers. Good place to... More

very popular place with a nice food (the veggie burger was very teasty!) good eco wine We were really surprise that after the dark Venice Beach is almost empty and this is the only restaurant where you can spend a nice evening.

Cool place to grab a beer and tacos. The bar is small and loud but we fit right in. Outdoor tables get better service but not many tables. Good beer on tap. Guac all y'all great name for a dish

Great location, funky vibe, good service, great sounding menu. We had brunch and it was just bland across the board. Steak and eggs was lacking flavour and needed seasoning. Girls had omelettes which were also a bit average .

I thought the breakfast and experience was an overall delight. Sat on the patio with our dog and a great view of the ocean. Very calm and relaxing atmosphere. Would definitely go back.

Good experience overall. This local restaurant offers outdoor seating overlooking the beach with a variety of food choices, wine, and beer. The servers were nice, but a little slow due to the high volume of customers. The grass feed beef California burger with bacon and mushrooms was an excellent choice. Fun atmosphere for hanging out over drinks and enjoying the... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
