Success! Thanks for posting your review of Axe. You’ve done the world some good today.

Fantastic healthy food although pricy

I hadn't been to Axe in a few years due to their rude bad-mood service and expensive food. However, I revisited Axe last week and was pleasantly surprised. The server was extremely sweet and the food was superb. I got the homemade sausage bowl with yogurt, lentils, and brown rice ($18) and my friend got the vegetable bowl with a bowl of soup. Their ginger tea is so good. We both got a tea, and total was $50. No... view more

Consistently sub par

Really don't like this place, Had a bad experience a year ago and went again and it still sucks. HORRIBLE service and the food is subpar at best. There are so many other places to go on Abbot Kinney

almost..but not quite

ok, i was here when this place first opened in 1999. there used to be a great server, she was attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. the overall vibe was really chill partly because of her. i was a regular because of her and the pancake! man, how things change. i just moved back to venice from costa rica. man, what a disappointment. where to start..the service-horrible! the food-not what i rem... view more

You would think a little joint on Abbott Kinney would get off its high horse, but apparently this neighborhood has gentrified beyond even the locals (of which I count myself one). I called to make a reservation for 4 for a Saturday night and had to give a credit card #-- and if you don't cancel three hours ahead of time, they charge you $20/person. Joe's doesn't do this - need I say more? Please don't mistake me, I... view more

WORST dining experience of my life

This was the WORST dining experience of my entire life and I have eaten at many restaurants. To begin, we tried to add a fourth person to our reservation and the hostess went into a snit and was so rude to us. Apparently they had us set up for three people at a two-person table. There was no one in the restaurant when we got there, but according to the hostess there was no other options. After explaining that our ... view more

Not a very good morning....

I went to Axe this morning to have the nine grain pancake and a good cup of coffee. I walked into the establishment only to be greeted by little orphan Annie's evil twin sister. This particular server was in a very foul mood upon entering this restaurant. I asked her for a cup of coffee and asked if I could have it served with the creme instead of the milk, she said "" I have worked here a long time and we only have ... view more

Used to be my Favorite

We recently went early on a Saturday night. I ordered the Trout which used to be my favorite....the fish was flavorless and was overpowered by the beets inside ( too sweet) , My husbands Duck was good and the veggies were yummy and then on to dessert...we ordered the special ( Butterscotch custard ) it came cold which surprised me being that it is the middle of winter and I found it to be far too sweet even with the... view more

Shockingly terrible service & attitude

Wish I could have had this experience on camera. I was unhappy with my meal - hey, it happens...but from the point I brought up the issue with my steak to the time we demanded the check and left, I was shocked at the attitude of certain staff members. Is Joanna the blonde who doubles as hostess? I did not need her to explain to me what a Ribeye is... I worked at a steakhouse for 3 years - I know! Anyway, the Ribeye... view more

Simple yet Edgey. Always great quality.

I love Axe! I have been a fan since they opened in 1999..or was it 2000. In any case they always deliver the best edgy eats in a hip but simple atmosphere. I will be always eat here any time I find myself in Venice Beach.

Thanks but no thanks

This place stinks. I am not sure which was worse, the service or the food. Either way, we won't be back.
