Wow!Visiting LA and saw this restaurant on Open Table. The menu caught my eye and knowing not much else we walked to it from Venice Beach. We were a family group of 5 adults. Classy and visually entertaining interior with pleasant and experienced staff. Fantastic variety of food, wine, and bar drinks. The Moscow Mule in a copper mug was fantastic. Sashimi was fresh and the carpaccio was outstanding. All five dishes we had were amongst the best we've had. The lamb and steak were great. Bravo!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMVery goodWe have been to Chaya a few times over the last couple of years. Friends from out of town were visiting and wanted to go back to Chaya. The service is wonderful...just enough attention. The food was very good. Overall a very nice evening.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting crowdThis is a favorite restaurant of ours.

Best of all it included Bottomless Mimosas n the brunch price, while many restaurants had an additional fee. Great food and service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI highly recommend eatingI highly recommend eating here. Sushi is as fresh as you're ever going to get...The raw fish in the sashimi salad is about the
best I've had. The pasta arrabiata we had was amazing. All of the food is great...even the warm sour dough bread. It's a hot spot in Venice. Only thing is it can be very crowded but even so...when I've eaten there on Saturday nights..it wasn't a problem. I recommend sitting in the back far away from the bar.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently stellar dining!!Chaya Venice stands out as a very consistent dining experience!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy family and I go to ChayaMy family and I go to Chaya Venice and celebrate all our special occasions.

Chaya Venice is one of those rare restaurants that manages to provide superb food and great atomosphere at reasonble prices and in place that you won't feel uncomfortable bringing your kids. For that reason, I call it a neighborhood gem, but that might understate it. It is more than that.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time I go, always aEvery time I go, always a great experience with a varied menu so that I have never eaten the same thing twice.....except their Kobe Beef and Lobster sushi roll which is not on the menu, but what I come back for time and again!
I book every time I am in Santa Monica and this is my stop away from home in NYC.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMChaya Venice, fan favorite.My girlfriends and I had a memorable Easter Brunch experience with fantastic food, exceptional service, endless mimosas and unforgettable laughs.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHostess Staff SubparChaya Venice remains one of our favorite restaurants for all occasions. However, we were very disappointed that, despite having made a reservation far in advance, we were seated in the bar area - not the main dining room. We were insulted that we were not, at least, given other options. However, given that the bar has the only TV in the place, there was some consolation in being able to watch the NCAA Basketball tournament during our meal. Otherwise we had a very enjoyable experience, as usual. The service was great and made up for much of our disappointment regarding the seating.
The food is always enjoyable and the never-ending creativity of the chefs is always something to anticipate.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMlove this place!!! one oflove this place!!!

It's our go to restaurant with friends or as a couple It is a bit on the loud side so if you are with anyone who is hard of hearing it is probably not the best choice3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always request Marcel toWe always request Marcel to be our server and he takes care of us every time!
