Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great spot for a group with sheltered outdoor seating and an indoor space. The menu is strong. We shared the Brussels sprouts and loved their crispy goodness. I loved my Cajun shrimp paperdelle - rich, tasty and a little kick. The lamb chops also seemed...especially good. Service was very good. Only oddity is a limited bar with a bunch of cocktails and Margaritas, but no regular call drinks.More

A world of it’s own, fantastic big indulgent breakfasts. Fun decor and lovely staff. This was our last meal in LA and what a brilliant pick. Will recommend this to everyone.

We stopped here for lunch. We shared a pesto chicken sandwich with french fries. This was tasty. They do not have many options for young children, but they were able to produce bowl of fruit and that did the trick. This is a small restaurant...on the parking lot at the back is small and congested. The place has a nice atmosphere. Nothing super cheap on the menu, and some dishes are quite pricey. But overall, we had a good meal and our waitress was attentive and courteous.More

Neat little place with funky decor and a creative menu. Five of us all had great meals. Each area is decorated differently, it is worth waking around to check them out.

Dined there on a Thursday night and we loved the decor, service and food. Best of all, us 6 girls were chatting away in a corner booth and only by the time we left realized we were the last ones. Turns out the place had...closed 50min ago already - but no one kicked us out and they just let us have fun. That is amazing. We felt bad we had them stay around for us, but it was so kind of them to let us have a good time. That’s the kind of place I’m going back to!! Thank You 💕More

Went last night for an early dinner with a friend. The waiter (Jeff) was very accommodating as my friend wanted something that was not on the menu. He was very attentive and pleasant. There are three areas to sit in. One area is like an...enclosed patio and the other side more of like a regular dining area and a small bar area. We chose to sit in the bar area that had very comfortable booth seating which you don't find much these days. They had wild salmon which I ordered as it is not all that easy to find a place that has wild caught salmon. It was a large piece. Cooked to perfection and tasty. The mashed potatoes were plentiful as well as the green beans that came with it. I have plenty left over for at least another night. We ordered a couple sides and each had plenty to split between 2 people. We had left overs of those to take home also. No complaints. It was reasonably priced and we will be back again.More

Surprisingly disappointed with this place. Overall thought it was overpriced and wasn’t great food. The appetizers we got the Brussel Sprouts that had way too much vinaigrette on them that it was totally smothering. Then the garlic fries where each fry had a thick almost...cube like size of garlic on them. Far too much garlic - you could barely even taste any potato. The main courses to their credit were very good. I had the chicken pesto sandwich which was lovely, and my friend got a breakfast platter type dish which was also good. But for $50 for two mains and two appetizers, half of which didn’t taste good - I won’t bother revisiting.More

26 Beach is in a fun location. While you wait for your reservation you can take a short walk to the end of the street and you are at the beach. The place is so cute. There is indoor and semi outdoor seating. They have...a full bar and quite a bar scene on the weekends. The food is great. We love going there for brunch and dinner. They have great fish, get the salmon or sea bass. You will love it. They also have wonderful deserts. Have fun.More

Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Delicious food with wonderful menu. Ordered the sushi burger because where else can you get one? Cauliflower wings with curry sauce also delicious. The deco is spot on.

My husband and I visited 26 Beach Cafe on our last morning in Los Angeles before flying out to Hawaii. We had a delicious brunch! We started with garlic bread with cheese, which was excellent and probably too filling. I had a cream-cheese-and-strawberry-filled french toast,...which was delicious without being too sweet. My husband had a burger, which he enjoyed. The service was a bit slow but friendly. It was pretty busy on the day we went. The price was reasonable. We would definitely recommend this place!More

We had just arrived in Venice Beach and had spotted 26 Beach Cafe while en route to our nearby hotel (The Kinney). Our waitress was extremely friendly and pleasant (despite having to wear a mask and face shield!), and she helped us with our menu...selections by giving us good advice. I had the chicken salad sandwich; my wife had one of their flatbreads and our son had a sushi burger ---- and everything was wonderful. My son's sweet potato fries were fantastic, as was my side salad. We give this restaurant a huge thumbs up!More

Poor customer service. I ordered online with a delivery AP. One of the burgers came with no bun. A mistake on my part. The server I talked to when I called immediately told me that the mistake was mine. She could see how such a...mistake could be made but instead of offering to send another burger she was busy telling me what I did wrong.Their default should have been how they could have had a satisfied customer, (a repeat one.) There are many other choices in the Marina del Rey/Venice area. Too bad I won't be ordering from 26 Beach Cafe again.More
