  1. I thought the food was mediocre, at best. I don't see how it can survive as a must be living based on the bar scene.

      agree that the food is mediocre.
      they use canned juices for some of their mixed drinks, so those are mediocre too.

    2. Mmm, yeah, I really didn't like this place much. OK, not at ALL. Not good foodstuffs, uppity peeps, LOUD in the non-stylish dining room, too cramped, and boring menu.
      But so I'm not a complete negative-nelly, I did very much enjoy the sweet potato fries :)

        They serve food? We've only been there after 11pm for drinks. It just seems too trendy to support it's drinking scene and food.

        1. Went a few weeks ago, thought the food was good and came out quickly. It has gotten a lot better over the past year. They now have a specialty drink list which has some fun stuff.

          1. I think that this place is great, it represents everything good about Venice. The people, the weather, the food, the deisgn all come to gether to form a unique and exciting restaurant without all of the west side upityness (sp). Check this place out!
