We visited Venice beach on a drive down the coast and we're definitely not impressed with the boardwalk. However, if we hadn't gone there, we probably wouldn't have walked by James Beach (restaurant) on Taco/Margarita Specials night and would have missed this great restaurant! We...More

Highly recommend coming for the mahi mahi fish tacos. Great quality fresh fish. Not the cheapest at $27 but worth the experience. Turns into a night club after 11PM so may not be for everyone.

We went here because our Uber driver recommended it as a local spot with great fish tacos. It didn't disappoint! The fish tacos are great. The atmosphere is great. The mimosas are HUGE! Loved it. Would recommend and would return.

This place is semi-famous as it was used as a BAckdrop in the movie "I Love You, Man". We had some great wine and a simple/delicious tuna appetizer. The ambience is laid back, and there's a lovely indoor/outdoor patio that's perfect on a sunny day....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
