try the hamachi key lime roll

this is a great find. Carl the host was very welcoming. The place was buzzing with diners and the sushi was great, Chef Nick's HAMACHI KEY LIME ROLL was the most exciting sushi I have ever had.

Tried a bunch of different things and we all shared. So yummy. The drinks and the service are excellent too. I really loved the vibe inside. 5 stars :)

My friend and I were attracted to the variety on the menu and the economic value of a pitcher of margaritas. The forbidden rice bowl was a small portion, and needed more flavor. The kim chee brussels sprouts was a total failure: two attempts from the kitchen that had no heat, no spice, no pickled flavor and finally the waiter... More

A good Japanese restaurant in Venice Some specialties are worth the visit like the volcano rolls, which are sashimi rolls Music is a bit too high, the same for the A/C... If you are not from the U.S. bring something... Prices are decent, a bit more expensive than other places closed nearby

Such a nice place, with a bar. It has different kinds of draft beer, like any other american bar. But I liked so much the meals. I had a kind of sushi but with no fish! Like a veggie sushi, so delicious. Highly recommended. The service is the only issue, cause they don't give much attention when you sit, you... More

Made a reservation for a Saturday date night, arrived a few minutes early and was shown to a 2 seats high table, despite there were other booth tables available. We requested for a change and was shown to a booth. The place seems worn. The marble table top we were at has chips on all the corners so they were... More

Nice place to get some cocktails, gets pretty crowded during the summer. They serve Sushi and quite loud...why I only gave it a 3 rating. Menu is eclectic but can be good. I say this because I've had some good appetizers during happy hour, and had gotten some mediocre ones. But it can be a fun place. There's parking across... More

After a busy day in downtown LA and onto Malibu Beach, Canal Club was the perfect end! Great service, friendly and helpful. Great cocktails and food, we ordered a number of plates for 5 of us and everything was fantastic. We had eaten a fairly big lunch so I wasn't that hungry but I made a point of eating as... More

We went in after a day at the beach. After order drinks, the waiter informed that what's on the list of main coursers is not enough for a meal. You have to order like two to have a full meal. Oops.. al of a sudden it all became double the prize. Ok if worth it. But the sushi rolls was... 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.
