Client dinner MDR or Venice or LAX convenient

Looking for a good spot for a business dinner. Clients will be flying in to LAX. Less than 10 people, and I would prefer not to have "family-style". Better for everyone to order their own meal. My first thought were Beechwood, Joe's in Venice. Wanted some feedback on Bistrotek.

  1. What about Cafe Del Rey in MDR? Should fit your criteria too.

    Cafe Del Rey
    4451 Admiralty Way, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292

    1. BistroTek is closed. What is your price range?

        The Custom Hotel web site still shows Bistrotek as open so I called. It is closed for remodeling (i.e. their web site is out of date). Anybody know what is going on (will miss the shrimp sliders)?

      2. cafe del rey is the classic business dinner location in that area.

        1. absolutely, your best bet is cafe del rey.

          imho, no other option comes close.

          1. If you are thinking of other options, you could also check into AK on Abbott Kinney.

              AK just reviewed by SIV in LAT today. Avoid for the near future.
