Yum! No other way to describe Gjelinas, we've been lucky enough to eat here twice and the food is amazingly delicious, good service, good wine list, good people watching, great setting. Try sit in the courtyard if you can.

Great place to visit while around Venice Beach. We sat next to the door and it was very interesting seeing all the people walking in. It´s difficult to find a table so plan going early, but if you have to wait go for a walk and come back. If you want to stay they will ask you to stand next to the wall while you have a drink, which I find quite humiliating. The food is fantastic with lots of healthy very well balanced choices.

The setting is beautiful and we sat at a little courtyard table. The service was absolutely fantastic and we were served by a few waiters. We shared a meal as we'd eaten breakfast quite late and they were absolutely fine with this. The pizza was one of the best I've had. Definitely go!!!

This restaurant blew our minds, the was some of the best we have ever tasted. If you are thinking of going with more than two people, you should make a reservation.

I have twice been to this trendy restaurant in a wonderfully designed space. The food is very good but I have never had more rude and inattentive service in any restaurant, even those with less cachet. Nearby business owners and staff had agreed with me that the service is horrendous. I would not return.
