I can't believe there could be a better value lunch spot in LA. Good service too. Not the youngest crowd you'll find in Venice, but I guess these oldies no a great restaurant.

Joe's has been a consistent crowd pleaser in Venice for many, many years.

The intimate setting makes it ideal to take a date for a romantic dinner or a holiday party. We've celebrated many Mother's Days, company holiday parties and other special occasions at Joe's over the years and don't think we've ever been disappointed.

Joe is a michelin star chef and often gives back to charity - during the Venice art crawls he will even provide appetizers and a cocktail at no cost, with all tips and proceeds donated to local Venice organizations.

Great wine list, cocktails and if you can't score a seat in the dining area, the bar is a nice place to have a quick bite or drink.

Took the wife out for a great anniversary dinner here. We got there a little after it opened and had a great table by the window. Our server was really great and attentive. We both had the prix-fixe dinner menu and had 1 of each item to choose. Each course was tasty and flavorful. Overall, would definitely come back for another meal.

One of the best restaurants in Venice. Bringing fine dining to the "Ghetto by the Sea". Went for Brunch with bottomless Mimosas and it was great. 2 Courses and they never stop filling you up. Can't go wrong with the pulled pork tostada, simply amazing. Have been for other meals as well and the food is always top notch. Ambiance is nice, never too loud.

Had lunch there last week. Three courses for $19. Yes, $19 it's not a typo. Good sized portions too. Excellent, consistent California cuisine served with a smile. What's not to like?
