We were a group of five for dinner, good atmosphere but very dark place, could not read the menus but lucky we had our mobile phones so used the torch lights. Food wasn't great and we had to change our order 3 times as they...More

I had the BLT which I thought was good (nice bread) along with a mint iced tea. The service was subpar, and the waiter kept reminding me that 20% gratuity is included. Funny because when service is great, I enjoy going to 30-50% to show...More

The food was great, we had appetizers, vegetables (the coli-flower was amazing), fish, pork belly, and one of the pastas. Everything was really well prepared, very original, and tasty! The service was also very good, our waiter took the time of explaining the menu and...More

Gjelina was sort of a let down for us. It was our first food stop on our trip to LA and we were excited after hearing all the hype. What we found was decent pizza, itty bitty cocktails, slow service and A TON of horse...More

The food is wonderful - but the staff are not friendly and combined with a genuine lack of interest and general snooty / disinterested vibe from the staff, it's no wonder the check comes with a 'mandatory' 20% gratuity. It's incredibly insulting - especially when...More

Contrary to several of the recent reviews, we have had two wonderful brunch experiences at Gjelina's considering both the food and the service!!! This past Sunday, we requested to eat on the patio, and were told it would be about half an hour wait which...More

There’s a reason this place is always crowded. The food was very good. A lot of care was put into the menu, and even more detail put into the food – even for brunch. I think the menu changes often but I tried the onion...More

I dined at Gjelina this evening and had an extremely disappointing experience. Our waitress was slow and disengaged. The wait between the delivery of the first and second course was inordinately long. So long, in fact, that we openly questioned whether they forgot our order....More

Cauliflower was ok, pizza was good, and the duck was excellent. Chocolate pistachio tart was delicious. I get ambiance but it was a little too dark - shush I am not that old! We had an hour and 20 minute wait - but it gave...More

Venice
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
