My cousin and I ventured to Joe's Restaurant during its last week-end in its long time location. The menu was the usual....SPECTACULAR! It is unfortunate that odd..at best, circumstances have caused 'Joe's' and other long time residents of Abbot Kinney to leave and/or relocate. We...More

We made reservations for dinner here and when we arrived they initially sat us outside in the rear against the back door/gate. It was pretty chilly out there so we asked if something was available inside. The hostess was visibly displeased with our request and...More

We booked this restaurant on recommendations from good websites but found it all pretty average. Nothing to complain about in particular but it's just average and the prices are higher than average. Food was not particularly well presented or interesting so we left a bit...More

We had the charcuterie, fish tacos and chocolate ganache. The tacos were good, and the charcuterie was saved by the foie gras. Didn't love the bread that was served with the charcuterie. The ganache was very rich and came recommended.

We are sitting in the patio area, munching on the complimentary brioche and olive tapinard. This is our second visit after a brunch visit last week. Lunch is amazing at 23 bucks for a wonderful 3 course meal. Being a Brit, the Turbodog brown ale...More

Ever since Joe's opened as part of a house and gradually expanded, I've had consistently great food here and very good service to match. I've enjoyed lunch, brunch and dinner here. Also, thankfully, this is NOT your Hollywood "bistro to the stars" where ordinary folks...More

Brunch in Abbot Kinny and it's wonderful. All of the staff kept every sip and bite at the ready without interruption and the atmosphere was a nice balance of professional and relaxed. The staff have personalities that lend themselves to the service industry which made...More

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
