"I've been going here for YEARS and I've always had a great experience. The staff is knowledgable and friendly, and the food is great whether you go the sushi route or the main menu. Love it."

"I was here for the LA restaurant week menu. We had salad, chicken corn chowder for appetizers, maine lobster, wagyu beef for main course, and mochi ice cream for dessert.
The salad and the soup were great. It was a great start. However, starting from the main courses, it was a steep downhill. The quality was like P.F. Chang - salty, overcooked and felt like a complete waste of the fine ingredients. Maybe that's what fusion means to them. When we had the dessert, it was pretty much the supermarket bought mochi ice cream sitting on raspberry sauce. The ice cream was completely frozen. My husband and I had to sit there for like at least 5 min before we could poke a hole on the skin…
I know they have sushi bar, but we didn't get to try that. Maybe it's good. However, based on our experience on that day, I will not recommend this restaurant to any of my friends.
Also, they were really understaffed that day too. The restaurant was big, and they only had one server running around. It took us a long time to get our water, put in our order.."

"I've been coming to Chaya Venice with my buddy for probably over 18 yrs. No... Not a typo. 18 years! It all started when we were working as young associates at a local bank and we somehow discovered this place. We've always liked the vibe, the food and location.. and of course, service.Jeffrey, our waiter who has been there the whole time, is the best we've ever had! Service is an art and it can be tricky. He has the abilities to make us feel welcomed, carrying on a conversation with us, never had to write down our orders, and never missed a beat. Over the years I've also sent him my friends to ask for him at Chaya Venice. He's worked here for many years and he's truly the best of the best! I've been to probably all the rest of the Chaya locations (except in SF). Hes the reason we keep coming back over the years, especially that restaurants come and go very often, and in this area there is no lack of any good competition for loyal diners. We typically wait for Jeffrey's recommendation on the daily specials and he's never failed us!! The older we become, the more we realize its all about relationship and the connection and synergy. Thank you Jeffrey!! And Joshua is great too!! Both amazing! Thank you for the good times.
Favorite appetizers: sashimi, lobster roll...."

"Great meal and service/Not so great: Limited wine selection
Also there's a new health care tax forced on customers. This should be the owners responsibility. They make enough on the cost of the meals to pay for their employees. Adding that line item did leave a bad taste in my mouth, which is really unfortunate after such a good meal. At least the manager did take the time to explain this new tax which I did see on my bill at a local gastropub the very next day.

"I've been to Chaya Venice a bunch of times over the years. I marvel at their consistency to always produce a wonderful dining experience. Chaya is a place that is greater than the sum of it's parts, which includes a menu with something for everyone, delectable food and wine, a wait staff that is smart, friendly and unpretentious, and a lively atmosphere that allows for intimate conversation.
I took two friends there last Friday night. The place was jumping. We started with some light appetizers, e.g. a luscious shrimp cocktail, and salads. I got a caesar salad that wasn't even on the menu. I had the black cod which was done to perfection with. One friend had a steak and the other had salmon. We were all very happy with our mains. We split the warm apple tart for dessert and had short espressos to cap off the meal. All in all, it was a lovely dinner."
