This place has been a Venice hangout for a long time now, but apparently they are stuck in whatever decade this place was built. It was so dirty, from the floors, the bars, the tables, and the patio. Looked like everything was cheap, shoddy, and needed a paint job. It is ""supposed"" to be beach fine dining, but there is not an iota of class to this rip off joint. The prices they charge for the quality, or lack there of, for the food they serve here is beyond insulting. We tried a special appetizer of crab risotto to start, but I'm not sure if they know that the rice is not supposed to be a dry glue-like mush with trace amounts of old tasting crab. Thought that it would be really hard to screw up a steak frites dish, but at least they succeeded in one thing. The NY was tough as could be, overcooked, (ordered med-rare got med well), the fries may as well have been from some frozen bag from the grocery store, and the sauce was some liquidy version of what was supposed to be a rich red wine sauce. Another dish we ordered tried to bring together a grilled stuffed pork chop with sweet mashed potatoes, collard greens and some flavorless mystery sauce. My date thought it sounded like it might be an interesting combonation of flavors, but the stuffing might as well have been a bad version of stove top, and none of the ingredients complimented each other. Don't even get me started on the fish as what we tasted was either old or frozen. I eat out all of the time and have never been to a worse place in all of L.A., and that is saying something. The only positive was our attentive server who was as sweet as could be, but seemed to already know that we'd be disappointed, and was a bit embarrassed. If your in Venice, don't waste your time here, go find some other place around abbot kinney or main street, there are much better options around.
Pros: They let us leave.
Cons: We went there.
