My party and I enjoyed this
My party and I enjoyed this place so much. The food was great as well as the services. Our table was ready when we arrived and everyone was attentive to our needs. I think we'll all go back together and as individual.. great restaurant!....cute and cozy!

This is a great restaurant
This is a great restaurant in an unexpected location. The food is always excellent - we started with the Blackened Shrimp appetizers and then had excellent fish dishes. The bartender mixes great martinis, full to the brim - so full it makes the waiters nervous when they carry them to your table! My wife was constantly distracted by the attractive waiters - ours was Bryan, who has also done some acting and directing. Parking on the street is easy, the neighborhood is a quite city center park - overall a very enjoyable experience.

Definitely a gem.
It was overall a great experience, and the food was outstanding. My only complaints would be the noise level (it is a small venue and it was a Saturday night), and the close proximity of some of the other tables (felt a little too cozy inside for my taste). All things considered, it made for a very good night out.

Nice weekend spot recommendation
We stopped in for a nice lunch, the food, service, and ambiance were all well worth the trip. Would recommend.

Very cute restaurant. Food
Very cute restaurant. Food was good, not wonderful, not terrible, but good.
If it's warm enough, I would definitely recommend sitting outside in one of the little booths with the overhangs.
Great place for brunch or a romantic dinner!

Great little gem
Went there with my elderly parents and three boys and we had a wonderfully delicious meal with great choices for everyone. It is in a quaint new development in playa del Rey. We were considering going back into the Marina but this seemed like a good alternative. Out expectations were exceeded. Check this place out. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Absolutely enjoyable neighborhood
Absolutely enjoyable neighborhood place for a relaxed Sunday lunch! We both had the Chinese chicken salad and it was fresh and flavorful. The half-portion was just right for me. Staff was attentive and solicitous, friendly without being annoying, and didn't rush us through our meal. Atmosphere was laid back - - we enjoyed the chance to chat with each other and linger over our food, and it appeared that other diners were doing the same. Loved it and will definitely return!

We met w/a group of attorneys for cocktails & then the 2 of us stayed for dinner. Really enjoyed our appetizers @ the cocktail party and diner was great. Our 1st time @ Piknic and we plan to return often; menue was very interesting and we want to try more of the items. Dessert (chocolate mousse) was WONDERFUL.

NIce neighborhood boite
Having recently moved to Playa Vista, we were anxious to try Piknic to see if this restaurant which is within walking distance of our home was satisfactory. We have eaten Sunday brunch here outside and had an excellent meal. We took guests out to dinner and had another great experience. We ordered one of the specials of the night, Chilean Sea Bass on risotto, which was as good as any entrée we have had at other restaurants similarly priced.
So far, so good.

Nice neighborhood spot
This is a friendly and accessible neighborhood place; service is helpful and menu is varied. The wine list includes a number of nice wines by the glass. Appetizers are excellent; dinner choices range from more high-priced steak entrees to great dinner salads and excellent burgers. A favorite dish of several of us is the blackened salmon salad--a great combination of piquant and smoky flavors.
Espresso drinks and dessert pastries are served--all-in-all a good place for an excellent dinner.

Found this through Open Table right by LMU. Good food, not great, but close to campus We will return!

Was a lifesaver on a Saturday night with a group of 11 at 7:45pm. Had plenty of room and we more than accommodating on doing separate checks.

Going to Piknic is like taking a mental vacation to 'somewhere else.' The food is great; I love the little town; service is very, very good ... all around, ALWAYS a very pleasant experience for myself and my family. THANKS!

Love sitting outdoors. Inside seemed to noisy and I don't like places with the TV PLAYING.

A Pleasant Surprise for Brunch
Had some out of town guests and could only meet for Sunday brunch. We are not into big buffets so I checked open table for the time we wanted and decided to come here. Food was tasty and well prepared. Good service and not too noisy so we were able to converse. We will definitely return.

My daughter, an LMU student was especially missing our dog, so with canine in tow I met her for lunch on a Monday at Piknic.
The patio was perfect and they were very pet friendly.
We shared a chicken sandwich special which was great and the Chinese chicken salad, not our favorite as the chicken was breaded & fried, and the honey dressing too sweet for our tastes. The service was excellent and they cheerfully allowed our special request to alter the sandwich ever so slightly. We will definetly be back.

Great service, comfortable ambiance
Our server was Christina and she was very friendly, bubbly and cute. She took our orders and was prompt on service. There was another gentlemen who serviced our table and constantly made sure our drinks were topped off. He was very attentive to our tables needs and even recommended some great desserts. All in all, a great find. This restaurant is 2 minutes driving from my new place so I'll definitely be back!

This was our first time at Piknic, very new day/modern. Food was good, customer service very good. For a last minute place to go,
did not have to wait long to be seated. Street parking only.

Dropping in for a late dinner bite, we ended up having to order half a dozen appetizers just to taste them. Loved the grilled asparagus, four cheese filled gnocchi with spinach and beet sauce (yes!), and grilled cauliflower with a great tahini sauce. We moved on to a fantastic caprese pizza and outstanding porcini mushroom risotto. Staff was wonderful about boxing up leftovers and we finished with an amazingly light and delicious passion fruit tiramisu. Can't wait to go back.

Why didn't I get any Open Table points for this reservation?
