We had very unpleasant waiters . They were trying to be polite , but very superficially.
Uncomfortable seats.
bad food.
My son got food poisoning from the salmon he had ordered.
I don't have to spend money and be miserable so I will

Was so excited to have found a local restaurant that had a good selection food. Although the food is good and can be altered to be healthier, the service is HORRIBLE. Too many times to count, we've been helped by wait staff with

Piknic as a whole is wonderful. The prices and staff are perfect too. I discovered Piknic about two months ago and I'm hooked. My friends and I have cocktails their one-two times per week.

You know, I noticed something very interesting. First of all, this is a great restaurant who does it's best and only gets better with time. Second, for all of those people who write one review because you have something against someone

As a resident of Playa Vista, it is unfortunate that our only dining option is Piknic. It is way over priced considering the quality (or there the lack of) of the food. The service is VERY inconsistent (sometime good, most of the time

For starters, the location of Piknic is ideal since we live in Playa Vista. From the very opening of this restaurant, my girlfriend and I have had problems. Just overall bad. For the price the food is not that great. The service is dismal to say the least. My girlfriend will never go back. But I have gone in with a buddy to grab a beer at the bar and a quick appetizer. There was only 2 reasons that I did go back in the first place. #1-Location. #2-The bartender is from Detroit (where I'm from) and is totally cool. And he recognized me the 2nd time I came in with my buddy for a beer. Plus he bought us a round. I'm a big tipper when taken care of. And he has always been cool.
But here is the "tip of the iceberg." This morning 11/10/07 my girlfriend and I woke up and wanted to have bloody mary's and breakfast. I begged her to give Piknic's another try (actually, today would have been the 4th time she was going to give it a try.) So we called the restaurant @ 10:06 am to find out if they had bloddy mary's. The following is exactly what my phone conversation was like.
Piknic-Hello, Piknics.
Me-Hi, are you serving bloody mary's right now?
Piknic-Umm....I'm not sure if we have those. But the bartender isn't here yet. He doesn't get here until 11:00.
Me-So you're saying that you don't serve any alcohol until 11:00?
Piknic-Can you hold on a second?
Me-Sure.
1 minute later..
Piknic-Yea, the bartender doesn't come in until 11:00, so we can't serve alcohol.
Me-Why?
Piknic-Umm, cause it's like the law.
Me-Where in Playa Vista?
Piknic-Umm. Yea. It's like that like everywhere. It's the law. Like in the entire country.
Me-That makes no sense. Alright, thanks.
15 minutes later, we were @ Tony P's Dockside Grill in Marina Del Rey enjoying bloddy mary's while looking at the amazing view of the Marina. Piknic's needs to train their staff on phone skills, and update the receptionist on the current drinking laws of the "entire country."
I will never go back.
