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.
I love James Beach. It's my favorite local restaurant! They have done an amazing job at making it COVID safe with a tremendous attention to every detail. Well done!
All things considered....pretty good. The menu was limited as expected and we had a very nice time.
Love James Beach.
We love this place! Great food and we always have the best service. Thanks guys
Great service and great food!! 10/10 would recommend
Love this place. A Venice Institution
Our friends 30th birthday. Our server gave us recommendations on drinks and food and everything was delicious. All servers are wearing masks and shields. We will be back!!!
So happy they opened patio back up!
We love this restaurant and were glad to see that it was open again for patio dining. The service was excellent and it was very clear they were adhering to the standards for safety. Food as usual very good and the owner came over and chatted with us for a bit to ask how we thought they were doing. I like to think he recognized us as regular patrons ( but probably not). But that’s ok. We will certainly go back!
Our favorite place in all of Venice is back and we couldn’t be more excited!
Food & drinks were delicious and staff warm & amazing as always!
They follow strict safety protocols while keeping an uplifting attitude! AMAZING!!!
James Beach has a varied menu, good food, ambience, acceptable noise level, good friendly service and an interesting eclectic crowd.
My only complaint is that the nextdoor parking is $8. Pretty outrageous. And other parking is not easy to find.
Great food, great service, Segel approved.
Not fine dining, but it was ok. Vibe of room is great
Loved it. The food was delicious and the service was great.
A few friends had made the suggestion to try James Beach out. Food was excellent, service not so good. Our waiter was always missing in action. We kept having to ask another waiter for help. He didn’t seem happy about that fact. The staff also sat us at a table by the bar. Not a good spot, people kept hitting our table to get to and from the bar. They were to lazy to go around. We will be back. We will just ask for a different table and the waiter, Well, everyone has an off night.
Great ambiance. we enjoyed all courses, sand dabs were sublime, lasagna was great as were the fish tacos. $7 martini weds made it even better!
