At $18.50, the Kobe burger ain't cheap, but it's very good. My son-in-law and I each had one (with salads instead of fries) along with a frosty beer. My daughter and niece each had humongous salads which were fresh and beautiful, and the two toddlers had quesadillas. We also shared a nice ceviche. Pretty ho-hum digs.

We visited for lunch and were completely spoilt for choice with all of the options! Typically I avoid restaurants with such a large menu as they tend to lack quality but the reviews seemed good and I'm glad we went. The decor was very kitsch, and we sat in the indoor terrace area which was nice and cool. Our order... More

Great feel/vibe, decor is unique and fun...I'd say shabby chic and food is the same. Service excellent and food great! So nice to find something a little different that is also so good, had a great time. Sat at the bar which is so fun as you can see all the food coming out of the kitchen.

Wow! A great selection of burgers and the 2 my wife and I had were fantastic. We've been to 3 separate burger joints over the last few days and these are the best! Clean and tidy restaurant with great service. AAA

Really enjoyed our Sunday brunch here. Portions are LARGE and very filling. We got some of the french toast dishes and shared them so we could try several. All of them were delicious but I think my favorite ended up being the Peach Melba. The decor is nice too, although my friend was a little disappointed that they had change... More

After all the reviews, I was a bit underwhelmed. The food was good, but the veggies were not as fresh as I had expected. Most of the breakfast dishes are huge and can be split between two people.

Fantastic food! Made reservations so we didn't have to wait! We had Eggs Florentine over brown rice, Reese's stuffed French Toast which is peanut butter stuffed inside French Toast drizzled with fudge sauce on top (perfect balance), also tried the Peach Melba, caramelized peaches with concentrated raspberry drizzle, pecans cooked in a maple glaze poured on top of croissant French...

This was my second time here. First was for brunch around 11am and this time for breakfast at 9am. They have 2 sides to restaurant (a typical restaurant side and a cute open side with colorful umbrellas). First time was on the open side which I like better, this time on other side. There is an extensive and unique menu.... 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.
