Delicious and creative cocktails with a matching fresh, and innovative menu. Great for unwinding in Venice after a stroll on the boardwalk.

Great Food! – Although it took awhile for them to seat us with reservations, it was worth the wait for the food. The food was awesome and the ambiance was even better. Good crowd and good decor. I would definitely go back again!

Are we magically invisible?? – Went on a Monday night. The host seemed to be bothered by us asking him for a table. He seated us anyway. We then sat for an entire 22 minutes without ANYONE coming to our table. Even after waving to several servers, busboys, and the host. After the first 10 minutes, we thought the service was just slow. After 15 min., it started to get annoying. After 20 min., it became a "game"...how long will it be before someone notices us? Needless to say, we walked out. I assume we were seated in a section that was not assigned to a server, but come on!

The coolest place on AK Blvd! – Very cool NY feel. The turkey burgers are awesome! They do a great Sunday brunch. Sit upstairs if you can - much quieter.

My favorite place for a drink on a weekend afternoon.

music food and drinks – Great location on Abot Kinney makes this a great place to start after work or on a Sunday night- They have some great live music and a nice bar. crowd tends to be 30's 40's...good scene.

Split Decision – Hal's has a lot going for it. The decor is beautiful (including original Joni Mitchell paintings), the Monday night jazz is great and the food and drinks are tasty/strong respectively.

My main problem with Hal's is that sometimes it's really just an upscale meat market. Other times the vibe is downright seedy. There were three occassions in a row when I went there and the bathrooms were inaccessible because people had crowded inside them for purposes other than their intended use.

The bottom line: The food is good, the crowd (usually) a mover and shaker bunch, the drinks potent. Just be weary.
