We spent the whole nite playing cards and celebrating our teenage daughter’s birthday. Eleazar, our waiter, was so kind and attentive. We had to eat gluten free, and he made sure we were taken care of. Thank you so much to the entire Baja Cantina...More

Dropped in after a transatlantic flight for some Mexican food to ensure a solid night's sleep, and certainly got that. The Baja Cantina is very colorfully decorated with all manner of ornaments, giving it a cozy sort of feel. The service is friendly enough, and...More

This was exactly what we were looking for. Our waitress , Olivia, was terrific. She suggested the perfect tequila drink and anticipated our every want. Fajitas with steak and chicken were great.

This was the food highlight of my time in California. I even jokingly (kinda) called my girlfriend after eating at Baja Cantina and told her that she and I would fly out to have dinner there. Can’t wait to go back!

We came here for late night drinks as this restaurant was right across from our hotel. The place is pretty casual, almost has a pub-like feel to it but not as crowded and the area is very large.

Great, hot, salsa. But the tamales were dry and the enchilada was boring. We left half the food on our plates but left a nice tip for the waiter as the service was good. There are too many great Mexican restaurants in LA to go...More

Had lunch today - Mike at the bar chairs was an excellent host. Nice to see Cliff again, who had worked here for some time years back. This place is steady and pleasant.

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
