It was a great restaurant, lovely decor! Great food
They didn't have all the safety precautions set in place but the food was great as always.
Really could not have been better....Didn't love that we were given a time limit, as we were a few minutes late for our reservation, but we understand that the circumstances dictate special guidelines. As always, the food was exceptional, and the upstairs dining experience was a wonderful surprise.
Beautiful setting and great food. The octopus was delicious. Would definitely eat there again.
Gjelina's was impressive not only for their food but also their flow and organization during COVID.
Amazing service and great direction on how to bring out the food and pairings
First time out in quarantine. Food was great and it was nice be out, but it cost a lot of money for what we got. Glad to tip the amazing waitstaff though!!
Would definitely recommend to anybody. Such a lovely vibe and food is fresh !
Very safe protocols in place. Clean. Menu looked promising but food was disappointing. Everything was over spiced unnecessarily. Ingredients were of very high quality. But couldn’t taste them with all the seasoning and spices. Also, too much acid in all the dishes we ordered. Hardly any protein options. No fish option. Very nice service but food was very disappointing.
Great ambiance, delicious food, everything was great!
The food was good and healthy. Under the circumstances the service was good (COVID-19). My family had an excellent experience.
Incredible night, great food! Mushroom toast, shishito peppers and duck confit were amazing!
We LOVED it! Best food and best service we've had in a long time. Can't wait to return! Normally this restaurant is quite noisy, but with the new Covid distancing, it was quiet and delightful. Couldn't ask for more.
We had an excellent meal at Gjelina, consisting of a few vegetable dishes, black cod, and a pizza. Our server, Myan, was absolutely delightful.
Good food and Gjelina practiced social distancing. A completely different vibe to the Gjelina I know pre-civid, but food was still good.
Wonderful to be back at Gjelina. Felt safe with the coronavirus measures they took and the food was just as good as it was before
Food was awesome and service was quick. Best spot to eat in Vencie!
We love dining at Gjelina. Even under pandemic circumstances, there’s warm
hospitality and delicious food and wine. It is reassuring to see the restaurant distancing tables and guests.
Food/service was incredible❤️
Always an exceptional experience despite my hesitation to go out with Covid 19, I was put at ease with the standards at Gjelina.
Outstanding on all fronts.
The perfect dining experience
Not familiar with the menu, we let the waiter suggest "family" style sharing entrees. It was excellent.
Love this restaurant and after closing for so long the food is consistently y
Great place, my favorite restaurant in LA, pizzas are perfect, light and fresh food perfectly cooked, and a lovely atmosphere. Highly recommend.
The food was amazing, and the service was impeccable!
When we arrived, we were the first people there and requested to sit outside was a beautiful day. We were told no because it had to be requested on open table , had we have known we would have. It’s not posted anywhere. Also I totally understand limited menu items because of the times that’s fine but at least post the correct menu on open table or even the web site for the restaurant. Food is always good. It this time we really didn’t have the best time.
Pretty rough post covid ambiance.
Our experience was superb. The servers had a deep understanding of wine and pairings. When we chose our wines they matched exactly the description that was provided. Food preparation was impeccably served. Overall Gjelina lives up to its name if you are looking for a relaxed and romantic high dinning experience. Will return. Thank you for the memories. Cheers!
This was our first foray out since the Coronavirus began. Our table was in an open doorway, very well spaced from other tables. Staff wore masks the whole time. We felt very safe and the service was excellent. Food, as always at Gjelina, was delicious. Vegetable dishes are the real stars, but everything was perfect. The wine list is interesting as well.
Delicious fresh food with wonderful atmosphere and service.
Great to have our restaurants coming online and offering dine in. Much too heavy-handed Govt intervention. Could have happened weeks ago, and every restaurant would be better off. That said, we sat upstairs. Lovely. Food was a 10. While I wish the portions were a little bigger for the menu pricing, this mindset did not distract from truly excellent food. Every dish was delicious. Welcome back. Here is to more diners in the weeks and months ahead.
Excellent as always. The pomodoro pizza with burrata was amazing. Thank you!
Klunky entry. Possibly due to new protocols. Wait staff outstanding, as was food.
Can’t wait to come back.
Over rated. Rude staff
The two female hostesses were smug, inattentive and even rude. There was no interest in greeting us (or clearly any others) or even thanking us (in this environment, two days before all LA restaurants were shut down) for dining out and patronizing. Yet they had ample time to gossip with each other and we overheard them bemoan other customers (who apparently annoyed them). Believe it or not there are people in Los Angeles (even in hipster places) who do this thing called SMILE ...God forbid they try this. Maybe they were hoarding facial muscular energy for coronavirus reserves. The food was consistently good (this time the cappuccinos were hot instead of cold) and there was one lovely male host (kind of Anderson Cooper type) seemed to be the day's manager--but even his skill and appreciated maturity couldn't gloss over the adolescent and smugness of those hostesses ...and we also overheard two other staff, presumably waiters, putting down their customers. Really...how hard is it to just be kind and realize at the end of the day your in a service profession--if it's not your skill set, don't work with people.
As always, an exquisite dining experience! I had never eaten brunch there and the coffee was spectacular.
Menus changes always make for interesting dining. Wonderful selection of wines by the glass. Thanks nay downside is the 20% imposed service fee, which is subject to tax. Why not increase the menu prices?
Good food, super noisy, wine list is mediocre, Venice overpriced place
Gjelina is one of the best restaurants on the Westside, and my favorite on Abbot Kinney!
