Amazing food and service. Loved everything. Thank you!
Wonderful meal..great experience. The chacuterie plate was great. My husband lived the duck.
It was lovely!
Everything was great. Our favorite place to dine.
great food. amazing, friendly and kind service. perfect ambience.
Always delicious food, good service
This location is in a nice and populated area. The entire experience was everything that was recommended to me. I doubt there is anything on the menu that would disappoint. Play to your own pallette and be amazed.
Always amazing!! Vibe was totally chill. Our server was so sweet and food was amazing as usual!! ♥️
Terrific brunch and thank you for making iced coffees!
Server had a bad attitude and we were charged 20% gratuity automatically.
I expected more, the food was just good, nothing relevant.
Wonderful waiter, superb food. Suffers a bit still from COVID restrictions regarding ambiance. This is a new go to for me, overall a real winner.
Food was amazing. Service was painfully slow. Feels like service has taken a big dive since they started thie
Best brunch in town. The flavors of the dishes are exceptional!
Food was very good and so was the service. We went for brunch and had the ricotta pancakes, crispy eggs and bacon and it was all amazing. Also good patio vibes
This is a review for your hostess. We have been here a few times and it’s been a different hostess every time. They have all been unfriendly and acting like they are doing you a favor. The waiters have always been great and food is very good but this is probably the last time we will come because the way you are treated when you enter puts us in a bad mood. It doesn’t matter how good the food is.
Portions were very small, food options very limited. Patio music was too loud for a weekday morning.
Fantastic food, great server. Love this place so much.
Food was fantastic and service was great!
Gjelina has been one of our favorite restaurants in L.A.since it opened. We moved away from the area a year ago, and Gjelina was the first place we wanted to go when we returned for a visit. Our breakfast there was the perfect start to our trip here. Everything was delicious, as it always is, and the service was terrific. We'll be back!
We are lucky enough to be locals. Gjelina is a Venice must restaurant! Such amazing food and atmosphere.
Our third time here in three days. We made our reservations at this restaurant before booking our flights! It did not disappoint. Amazing food: fresh, creative, thoughtful, and perfectly executed. Service the same—attentive but not overbearing, friendly, warm. Made us feel like we were at the home of a good friend. Can’t wait to come back!
Nettle pasta and nettle pizza were delicious. Love
Amazing! We are coming back next month and bringing our friends, thanks to the manager Benny for the great service! - Randi & Steve Bauer
We are regulars and adore your food. Last Sunday, was an odd one. You were out of iced coffee?! on an 80+ degree day and alternatively refused to make an iced americano. Server forgot to put in my husband's order then it came to much disappointment. The yogurt, granola and fruit was served as if it was a fancy dessert, hardly a breakfast size portion. A smear of yogurt across the bottom of the plate, just a sprinkle granola on it and and no more then a 1/4th of a cup of sliced citrus. It was a very odd portion and plating. Finally, you were not accepting AMEX? New scones date recipe is so delightful and barley kim chee eggs are sensational.
Myan is an exceptionally passionate server 🙏🏻 We had a spectacular time.
One of my all time favorite restaurants. Great food, friendly staff and a welcoming hip interior design. Highly recommended.
dinner at Gjelina was absolutely delicious. Unlike a few other reviews i read i thought the service was very friendly / accommodating and helpful.
everything we ate was outstanding but just mentioning a few that should not be missed
grilled oyster mushrooms
little gem salad
the pizzas were light and delicious -
favourites were the duck proscuitto and the raclette pizza with fromage blanc.
all and all an outstanding meal - can't wait to go back
Took an extra 45 min past our reservation to be seated. Ignored by our server, took over 20 minutes just to get bread.
I love this place! From the food to the wine... everything is just delish! You can’t go wrong with any item that you get on the menu. Highly recommend. Such a cute place to go on a date and just have a great time.
So pleasant and delish!
Food is really amazing, a shame that service is not the same.
The food was amazing and the server made some great recommendations on food and reasonably priced wine. The only reason I gave the ambiance a low score had to do with the ongoing Covid restrictions. We ate inside the main dining area which was fairly empty and the music loud. I’ve eaten there prior to Covid and would’ve given them 5 stars for everything.
the most amazing server ever...
and Justin is also awesome
Delicioso todo la mejor pizza que e comido en mi vida la mezcla de los sabores alcachofa limón y queso la masa en su punto ideal yummy! La ensalada, short rib y las papas espectaculares y el pastel de dátil con helado de jengibre wow! Y un super servicio. Todo realmente muy muy rico
The pork chop we ordered was cold. When we told our waiter, he took it and came back in a heartbeat and he said it wasn’t. Sub par service.
Love this place! Have been 2x and can't get enough of it.
It’s a good as ever !! One of the best food experiences in LA!
