    As a lot of folks have reviewed, this place is on Abbot Kinney and a great venue for ambiance and food.

    They have great tapas, pastas and entrees. Not cheap, but excellent food!!

    Another superior dining experience! We especially enjoy the weekend brunch; stuffed waffles (bacon or sausage) are personal favorites. As with most area restaurants, it pays to book ahead of your trip.

    Prompt, friendly service and a tasty, innovative menu, The Tasting Kitchen reminds me there is much more to Venice than its boardwalk.

    Along Abbot Kinney Boulevard are many great restaurants. But among the shining stars of the restaurant scene here is The Tasting Kitchen. Everything is so fresh and delicious. A very nice take on Californian cuisine. Try the chef's menu with friends and be prepared to be bombarded with lots of food.

    **MY GO-TO DATE NIGHT RESTAURANT IN VENICE**

    OH.MEE.GAWD.

    If I found a genie in a lamp and I had 3 wishes, The TK granted them all.

    **WISH #1- ROMANTIC TABLE**

    Made reservations on OpenTable with no problem, requesting a romantic table. Wish was granted.

    Sat in the front room near the window with a private curtain.

    We actually heard ourselves speak. Bonus.

    **WISH #2 - FANTASTIC FOOD**

    Ordered the Chef's Tasting Menu ($50) for 3 courses

    CORN SOUP (amuse busse)
    Incredibly delicious, fresh and tasty.

    BUTTER LETTUCE WITH CHEESE
    Wonderful starter with super fresh lettuce and wonderful cheese

    PORK CHOP WITH SAUSAGE
    Good cut, well cooked, and tasted perfect. The sausage was not overly salty and tasted just as good.

    MAC AND CHEESE
    Probably the best mac and cheese I've ever had. The quality of cheese and the pasta was beyond awesome.

    BREAD PUDDING AND RICOTTA CHEESECAKE
    Nothing mind blowing, but above average.

    **WISH #3 - GOOD SERVICE**
    Friendly, not an ounce of pretentiousness at all. Seated without a wait. Food came out orderly. Staff was professional and friendly at all times.

    Thank you, genie in the bottle for making all of our 3 wishes come true.

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    Great cocktails but I prefer g'lenias just down the street to eat.
