our visit to James Beach was great! all the food was tasty and hot and delivered quickly. the service was friendly and attentive but not overbearing... would return.
James and Daniel are the best! It is rare to find committed owners that really care about the quality of the food, the service and the customers. The food is always good and the menu ever changing. We have had many celebrations at James and will continue to do so.
Great first visit. Food was delicious and service was quick and excellent. The owner was there and very nice, patient and helpful. Well definitely be back....want to try the highly recommended fried chicken.
My low expectations have risen! After reading the reviews I was hesitant going here for dinner, however it was my friends request. Surprisingly, it was a great experience! The chicken is OUTSTANDING, the staff is super nice, and the ambiance is decent. I didn't give it 5 stars as the other items on the menu didn't look to appetizing. However, they too may surprise me! But why would I not order that fabulous chicken?! I never knew chicken could be so good. Did I mention I liked the chicken?! :-P
Always a fun and delicious experience. The best "American Food" in LA
Good service l, but it was too cold on the indoor patio.
fantastic experience - safe and friendly - great food
Great location, drinks and a friendly staff. Food was truly awful tho. The spicy tuna appetizer looked like cat food and had like 6 won ton strips, the lobster Mac n Cheese was pretty bland with a couple tiny chewy pieces of lobster sprinkled on top. The truffle fries were good tho.
Fabulous waiter and owner who made us feel very safe.
loved it. my server was great (Liam? I'm not sure), the bartender so nice and the food was amazing. such a nice evening.
Sitting on the patio is so much fun with its beachy vibe & delicious cocktails. Add delicious food & you’re in for a great experience. May I recommend the Seafood Rissoto.
Unfortunately the mahi was really dry and the “famous” fried chicken unflavored:(
Sooo glad they’re surviving the pandemic. Love this place. Very chill and friendly. Best margaritas
Super service as always since back in the day.
I love James beach it’s such a welcoming place and it looks close to me it’s good enough for every day or for a special occasion. Can’t wait for the bar to open again and the inside to begin serving with their open ceiling plan.
Had a great time. Staff was A+. Rissotto and tuna were great.
Last night out before lockdown!
Fantastic local spot. Great service and super fresh food.
Our service was exceptional and Brendan was the best part. He was attentive, courteous, and knowledgeable.
Service, food, and staff were amazing. They did everything to make their guest feel comfortable with face shields, tables spread out, and dividers between tables. Well done!
Great food and we were able to get right in. The seafood was fabulous.
Great service and ambiance for Covid dining. The calamari was very good, pass on the vegan/tofu tacos (tofu has no flavor), fried chicken good, but not as crispy as we have had in the past.
Loved it! Awesome drinks and food. Nice vibe and service
Love James Beach, so happy they have their patio open.
I MADE A RESERVATION AT 8:15 AND NEVER GOT SAT. COMPLAINED TO THE MANAGER AND ALL HE GAVE US WERE TWO FREE MOJITOS. DIDNT TRY TO GET US SAT. NEVER GONNA ATTEMPT TO COME HERE AGAIN.
Wow is this a pleasant surprise! The atmosphere was lovely with the fireplace and the patio is gorgeous. Loved our server. But most importantly the food was so delicious I literally asked who I was with if I was just super hungry or it was actually this good. We had the Mac and cheese with lobster -incredible- and the truffle fries for appetizers and then I had the steak Frites that was done to perfection. Loved it so much can’t wait to go back.
Came to our reservation, wouldn’t seat us because they were closed, even though our reservation was made for 10:15
We love this local spot. Great food. They have done an amazing job during Covid making our experience feel very safe. Highly recommend.
The restaurant was very serious about Covid -19 Safety protocol. The atmosphere was relaxed, fun and everyone was friendly and attentive. We had a really nice time!
Our waiter was great! Food was great! And loved the patio experience....very nice ambiance. We will be back!
Wonderful evening, food, service and overall experience lovely !!! We have never been disappointed there
Waiters are nice, food is excellent, and the space is beautiful. Loved it so much and will definitely go back!
I flew in from Houston to celebrate at JB It’s one of our favorite restaurants. Our waiter was lovely and even brought out my sons cake all lit up! It was great! We love the duck tacos !!!
Nice place. Food was very good. Service excellent.
Very nice atmosphere, excellent and friendly service. Great quality food, i would highly recommend it and will go visit again soon
The old side patio is now the whole restaurant seating. They fixed it up nice and thank god the food is still great. Happy they are open and the whole staff was A+. Support them please!
Great service from the staff! Cute ambiance. Food is a bit overpriced but that’s LA for you.
My wife and I have been going to James’ Beach for 12 years running, first it was a special occasion spot, and before long were regulars. James and Danny have been treating us like family the whole time, and we’ve lost count of the wonderful meals and memories. Now that they’re finally back after months of take-out only due to the pandemic, it feels like home again. We went for three meals in a row for the first two days they were back. This time we both had burgers, and they were are as good as any in L.A. We’ve never had anything but a great meal AND a great time. My current fave: Confit of duck tacos. Just amazing. And the place is 100% Venice, so come and find out what that means ; )
I love this restaurant. I felt perfectly safe & the food is sooooo good. Cocktail & wine list is wonderful. My favorite go to. So glad they are open.
