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


Absolutely don't understand the hype. Service is slow and the food is just ok and servers have attitude. Food is ok but did not wow me in any way.

Love love love Gjelina !!! Delicious food and great people watching. I particularly enjoy the great little outdoor area where you enjoy fabulous food on a warm summer night. The mushroom pizza is to die for ...

Great food, but the service sucks. We were one of the first people to be seated after the restaurant opened, and ended up waiting over an hour for our food. People were seated around us and left before we even got our lunch. When they finally brought it out, they brought out one person's at a time with several minutes between each plate. Awkward! We're staring at the one person eating while we get more and more upset... view more

Not short of being Chichi but very short in service & taste

My Experience with Gjelina was not good. I went there to eat with a date and it had taken at least 40 min to get the pizza and then my pizza was wrong. It had taken 15 min to get another pizza out to me. I understand that it is fresh and made to order. I didn’t like that a manager didn’t come over and apologize and not a common courtesy of a discount, free drink or something. I had given it another try with a group o... view more

Bimbos at the podium give community tables to friends before people on the list. Waiter chats with buddies and ignoring hungry & thirsty people on the table that were seated after a long wait, and had to be reminded 3 times to bring the over priced wine. My pizza came 15 minutes before my date's, and by the time her's arrived mine was tottaly cold. The joint is also very loud and impossible to hold conversations. All... view more

One Delish Dish
Gjelina is nothing short of amazingly tasty

For the full Gjelina review go to One Delish\r \r So here lies the long-awaited Gjelina verdict – it was an amazingly savory and scrumptious dining experience. The restaurant has a modern, yet warm feeling to it, mainly comprised of wood and brick decor and dimly lit antique light fixtures. There are distressed wooden tables inside and a cozy courtyard out back (complete with lap blankets and heaters for peo... view more

Ah, Abbot Kinney - where wrought-iron ambiance meets hipster foodie: you better be skinny to fit in here...not because it's LA, but because it's ALWAYS SO BUSY. But that means it's so good, right? Exactly. Who wouldn't like a place that offers a menu of small plates, pizzas, and mains to share? And with items such as pork belly and butterscotch pot de creme (A MUST MUST MUST) you'll be asking for more than the check ... view more
