"A real find, recommended by a resident of West Hollywood saying it was his favourite restaurant. Very friendly service and unpretentious, and the food was superb - the Tuna Carpacio was to die for."

"Another great dining experience at Chaya Venice, the roasted beet salad was exquisite , my usual Chicken was moist and perfectly crispy, my friends sea bass was perfect. The service was attentive but not obtrusive. I'll be back!"

"Honestly we picked this restaurant because of the location, (our friends were staying right next door) and it is incredibly overpriced for what it is. The food is fine but nothing to go back for. We will probably not go back."

"Chaya has been our favorite neighborhood special-occasion restaurant for years. We went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and had a delicious and romantic dinner. The service is attentive but not intrusive, and the food is amazingly good."

"Chaya Venice has been a favorite of my husband's and mine for going on 20 years...
I made a reservation on open table for four of us at 7:30; were meeting up with another couple. Our wait was approximately 45 minutes for our table, and we got seated very close to the door and bar. After waiting so long we accepted the table. Our server did a good job and the food was excellent as always. But it was noisy, which I suppose is par for the course on a Saturday evening. We were just surprised that they couldn't accommodate a more timely seating; given that we made the reservation a couple days in advance, with a follow-up confirmation call on Saturday.

"We had just arrived back from our Italian vacation, and we were delayed coming through customs (the cheeses had to be approved). We made our reservation on OpenTable for 2:15 (just before the dining room closes for lunch). Traffic was awful from LAX so we called the restaurant. There was no way to stop the dining room closing at 2:30, but the staff suggested ordering over the phone, and our selections would be ready when we arrived. Brilliant. We knew the menu and have favorites from the fabulous list of sushi and sashimi. We walked in, a beautiful table had been set for us, we ordered a bottle of Flowers chardonnay, and had the perfect lunch alone in a magnificent room. Now that is service!"
