This place is a must if you're visiting Venice. Incredible rooftop sunset views. Great spot to meet friends or a date. Friendly service, extensive drink menu & decent snacks with good portions for sharing. It can get quite chilly up there if you're visiting winter (yes, California does have winter!) but luckily blankets and heat lamps are provided. If you want a seat, you'll need a reservation but if you decide to pop in, there is some standing room. More

My server was not bad I only gave 3 stars because they were understaffed. But they were very friendly and the food, especially the tuna poke was awesome! Good prices, nice little spot! The manager was super nice and personable. He came over and said hello and apologized that we waited. It made all the difference in th world too! We will be back for sure! More

Have had dinner at Bull & Dragon twice and can't say enough good things. Chef is an absolute 5 star pro. He does amazing things and puts so much care into it. Have always had a good time chatting with the other guests at the table, and his serving staff are great too. It's a friendly, intimate time where you meet new people and taste incredible food. So worth it. More

Middle Eastern | Venice, Westside

Mediterranean flavors filtered through a thoroughly Californian sensibility – Dune has built a wildly enthusiastic following among the L.A. foodie scene. Organic, non-GMO ingredients and subtle experimentation with the classics of Middle Eastern cuisine make it one of the city’s favorite spots for everything from freshly-made falafel; to delicately battered, completely addictive, fried chicken shawarma; to elegant eggplant sandwich riffing off the traditional Israeli ‘sabich’. With locations in Atwater and Downtown, Dune is finally opening its third location, on the Westside. Just a block from the boardwalk of Venice Beach, in the light-filled space formerly occupied by Dudley Market, Dune will be offering its delicious menu to their new neighborhood, from 11am-10pm, 7 days a week. “We hope to join the Venice community by offering a friendly space which focuses on very high quality and organic ingredients, served casually, quickly and affordably,” says owner/head chef Scott Zwiezen.More
