"Attention All Travelers," if you're out of town or across town and want to hang out on the best beach in Southern California and want to dine for breakfast, lunch or dinner looking outrageously good food with a cool vibe, you MUST COME

About 4-5 times out of the year, 4 to 5 months out of the year I'm filming in LA and away from my family. I could get a place closer to wherever we film, but I won't. I'd rather be at the beach and close to my "Mercedes". It's my home away from home. Sometimes I eat here 3 times in one day.
Every drink is made with love. The bar is like "Cheers", everyone will eventually know your name. The food always hits the spot. I have never had a bad meal here in the 6 years I've been coming here. I had one experience of a drunk that come in, and decided to toss there cookies on the way to the bathroom. I think that had more to do with the Cabo Cantina 2-for-1 tequllias. This is truly the only place that can compare to an east coast restaurant. I'm consistantly disapointed with the other restuarants in LA, unless It's a 5 star place, with 5 star prices. This place is a good place, especially during hard times.

Pros: Great Food , Great Atmosphere, Great Staff

Cons: Parking in the summer weekends

This is a great spot to relax for brunch or on a sunny afternoon. Everything on the menu is great but it's a craving for the tuna pica that usually gets me out. Even before it was the drink du jour, Mercedes made the best mojitos. We often sit at the bar while waiting for a table at other nearby resturants. Parking is a hassle and service can be slow but if you're not in a rush and able to enjoy a leisurely and creative dining experience, Mercedes won't disappoint.

My home away from home, better known as Mercede?s Grille is what I hope Heaven to be like?A never-ending menu of delightful dishes, endless beverages, full of unique people, and a guaranteed fabulous time. After my first visit to Mercede?s on a Sunday afternoon I was not quite able to put my finger on what I found so intriguing. About three visits later, each with a different first date and restaurant of their choice; I finally made my conclusion. No matter how horrible the date, I was pleasantly fulfilled with my experience. The menu consists of an array of seafood, meat and vegetarian options; which are uniquely accompanied with delectable sides. From appetizing starters, out-of-this-world salads and indescribable entrees I struggle to this day when deciding what to order. However your experience is just beginning with the food, the service is renowned. Attentive, friendly, almost like they are your long lost friends; you will never leave in need. The restaurant offers an outdoor experience even when inside, open to the patio when the Southern California weather is at it?s prime and behind lovely glass doors that act as a barrier from foul weather while still providing a beach like experience. My favorite aspect of my hidden little treasure is the people. Now a seasoned regular, I have been blessed to meet a spectacular range of people varying from tourists to my personal favorite the locals. Being a transport to the Los Angeles area I struggled finding a place that reminded me of home, Savannah, Georgia. Where I come from we are welcoming, very fond of our food and booze and always out for a good time and this is where I come to get mine. The first place a take a visitor, new friend, or colleague is Mercede?s Grille because it is here that they make you feel like you are the most significant person in the Universe!

Cons: it's not 24/7

We came here for breakfast when visiting Venice Beach. The place has a nice terrace and looks nice inside. The service was a bit on the slow side, even getting coffee took a while. Their prices are a bit much for breakfast. The food was good. The french toast with fruit has a bit too much fruit sauce; it would taste better if the bread wasn't soaked through. The eggs had a lot of oil. But overall, a nice breakfast experience. Would come here again.

It's been almost two years since the first time I tried the "Vegetable Tostada" at Mercedes... it has become one of my favorite dishes. It's a great mix of grilled veggies over a fried tortilla (tostada), black beans, and rice (skip the chicken). If you are ever in the neighborhood looking for something DELICIOUS and healthy... give it a try!!! I hear the other salads are great as well, but this one is hearty and will keep you coming back for more. I've taken so many friends and family to visit Mercedes just to try this dish - it's been a success every time! Their mojitos are good and sometimes great. In my experience, the service tends to be better during lunch than during dinner (not sure why).

All the worst things you read on this web site are true. My fiance made a reservation for New Year's Eve--and confirmed it by paying $100 in cash. I came by the day before to confirm the reservation. The staff had no record of it. I made a new reservation. The next day we arrived at the appointed hour and the staff at the front door and bar had NO RECORD OF EITHER OF OUR RESERVATIONS.

As we lolled around being asked if we were "waiting for someone" the manager flitted round having sips of other people's drinks. A "greeter" at the door insisted insipidly he was the "smile police" and would I not smile so beautifully. Perhaps the man would have been better employed serving us a drink or helping find a table. It was 20 mins before we were seated, 40 before we got a drink--which was, amazingly, not included in the $100 price tag.

Almost nothing WAS. Drinks were paid out of pocket, and the "lavish appetizers" advertised turned out to be a soy-sauce sized bowl of salsa with chips and 2) whatever you could take from a party platter carried around 3 times in 3 hours and containing bite-size flautas. We were not so much as offered plates. Finding nowhere to put my tidbit I put it in the pink hat the waitress had given me. It was the perfect ending of the perfect eve when she dropped it--flauta-and-all--onto my head.

The people at the table next to us were in the same position: they had paid $100 for a table-and their reservation had been lost. They had waited for 30 mins for a spot. So imagine our mutual joy when our waiters decided to open the ceiling panels over our heads and let in the freezing midnight air. Between us--I counted--we requested 8 times that they CLOSE THE PANELS AGAIN. Every time we were told they would be closed. Every time they remained open.

Between the incompetence and bad manners of the staff, the ungenerous, overpriced, and mediocre food--it is, I would wager, the Worst Place on the Westside.

I've had Mojito's in Cuba, Miami, New York & Asia De Cuba and I know a real Mojito, this place is the only real deal in LA. It is not just the Mojito's, but the combination of the ambiance and food that makes the whole experiance of this place something that you want to keep coming back to. I ordered the pork enchilladas 4 to 5 times a week until the owner got upset at me and made order the Filet Mignon wrapped asparagus that was off the hook. I will admitt I'm a regular there, but after coming there for the last 5 years, 3-4 times a week, my food took too long twice. I read these bad reviews and think, WOW! One mans trash really must be another mans treasure.

I'd like to think that we just caught them on an off night, but according to my friend who lives around the corner, our experience Saturday was pretty much par for the course.

We arrived at about 8pm - a party of 7 w/o reservations. C&O across the street was PACKED (as usual) but Mercede's didn't seemed slower so we chose there. The hostess was great and managed to get us a table in about 20 min, which was no big deal on a busy Saturday night.

Our waiter came to the table, brought some bread, shared the specials (everything sounded delicious!) and took our drink orders - three glasses of wine and two martinis. Then we SAT for THIRTY minutes with no drinks and no dinner order taken. The waiter returned twice to tell us "our drinks would be right over," but by the second visit with the same update we gave up. Still with no drinks, we were terrified to think how long dinner might take. So we left STARVING.

What a disappointment! We were celebrating a friend's birthday and everything on the menu sounded great. Too bad we didn't get to try anything. None of us were in a rush and a leisurely dinner would have been fine, but thirty minutes without drinks or taking an order is unacceptable. I won't be back

I started coming here for breakfast, but have found out they have a great dinner menu too. Their seafood and appetizers are fresh and delicious. The service has greatly improved lately, as the new servers seem to be nicer and more serious about their job. At night it has a romantic feel, but because it is at the beach you can come in board shorts if you want too. My friends and I come in and have a good time drinkiong and enjoying the ocean breeze. They have a really good martini menu and wine list. I really like this place!

My friend and I visited Mercedes to try something near the beach. You can choose from indoor or outdoor seating. We stayed inside, and although the front door was open and there was a chill, there are heaters along the ceiling inside the front of the restaurant (thank goodness). The menu had much to choose from and the prices were OK. We both were not that hungry and ordered salads. I know, boring, but when you?re in the mood! We figured our order would be quick, and thankfully we made decent conversation because after about 40 minutes, we realized our order was still not ready! We said something to our waiter and he did not give an impressive answer. He did keep our drinks filled (tea and water). I can't say they left me wanting to come back; honestly, I can't even remember what we ordered.

So I happened upon this place last year, and have become a regular. Breakfast is the bomb, especially the benedicts. At night I get the 2% roughy, real delicious and healthy! Another plus is i would say half the time I'm there, there is a celebrity: either a B-lister or an A-lister. Last time I struck up a conversation with Ethan Hawke. Pretty damn cool! Close to the beach and very chill. Nice manager and friendly staff.

"Do you wanna ride in my Mercedes boy?" The answer is...absolutely! Mercede's Grill is one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. It truly is a hidden gem, 50 feet away from the Pacific Ocean. I have been eating here for five years, and I have never had a bad experience. ( And I don't work there, to shut all you haters up.) I came here on Friday, November 24th, 2006 on my birthday with a good friend of mine, and we had an amazing dinner experience there. We were greeted by their friendly manager and our server Alex who was great. Our busser was extremely friendly and immediately brought over a fresh warm loaf of bread with an herbed garlic butter spread. My friend and I ordered a flask of sangria, still the best sangria in town. We started our night with the unique appetizer called the "bartolito." Which is sweet fried plantians accompanied with black beans, cheese, and their delicious picadillo (cuban ground beef) Now I've had picadillo in Miami, New York, and at Versailles, and Mercedes has the best picadillo. A lot of the food stems from latin and asian influences which quickly make me think of Asia De Cuba. But for a third of the price, and for equal value. My entree came accompanied with a candle, we broke in laughter. I had the delicious bistec serape, which is a steak stuffed with bacon, feta cheese, and spinach, absolutely mouth watering and yummy. We were then treated with a small chocolate drink from our stunning bartender. For dessert we had this huge chocolate cake which came with my second candle. How great, I got to make two wishes in one dinner. I was then treated with a "reading," by our awesome server Alex. To my suprise he was on point with what he had to tell me. If you are looking for a unique and noncorporate restaurant experience, try out Mercedes' Grille, after your meal, you can take a stroll on the beach.

I read these reviews and don't understand?? I eat at Mercedes about 2 times a month, and the service is just fine. I am treated quickly, even before they knew me. I recommend the bartolito and Orange Rroughy...Or the Tostada Salad. Anyways, the food is always great, and the service is better than most places! At the peak of Brunch on a Sunday it can drag a little bit, but its obvious why, the PLACE IS JAMMING! I take my family and friends here and we always have a great time. The drinks are great, I get a Patron Margarita or a nice glass of Greg Norman Pinot, but its a full bar, and the drinks are made strong! Listen to this reviewer, Mercedes is a great place to chill with a couple of friends. It's small so don't recommend large parties. GO CHECK IT OUT!

The place is not bad. The ambience is casual, the food is ok, the service has been spotty half the time. Once they brought our food after the couple next table who came after us had already eaten and paid. But they ordered simple breakfast items, like scrambled eggs and we had ordered a nice lunch item that needed some work. They made it up to us with a discount. The breakfast items do get served more quickly because they are made in mass. But the service has been ok at other times. The house mojito is a nice one that come blended with banan and fresh mint leaves. There are two vegetarian plates that are nice around $13. I don't believe in paying $25 for a fish entree at any restaurant because i may as well pay a few dollars more and go to a prestigious restaurant like Valentino and have an amazing experience. So I have a problem with all medium retaurants charging that much for delicate dishes that they cannot possibly do magic with. I agree with other reviwers about Asia de Cuba having more superior food. I was there years ago, and the food was memorable and the view was fantastic, but this place is by the beach.

I agree with other reviwers about Asia de Cuba having more superior food. I was there years ago, and the food was memorable and the view was fantastic, but this place is by the beach.

I have been to Mercedes Grille hundered of times and I have had a great time. I understand why the servers won't seat guests who JUST want to drink (and eat a few apps)... the restaurant it just too small. If you want to booze it up go to a bar NOT a nice restaurant. It makes it very annoying for the people trying to eat a full meal and have a conversation!!!
Yes the service need some improving & the kitchen can sometimes be slow but over all this is a great place to eat at competative prices. If you want "fast" food go down the street to one of those chains.

Pros: ambience, food, mojitos

Cons: parking, quantity of tables

I have been to Mercedes numerous times thinking that maybe this time the service will be better but sadly it hasn't happened yet. I agree with the other reviewers if it wasn't by the beach it would have been out of business years ago!

I've given Mercedes too many chances. The service has always been slow (45 minutes for entrees!), flaky waiters, high prices, and "eh" food. But they make a killer mojito, so friends and I stopped by early on a Thursday night. When the staff up front found out we were there primarily for drinks, they refused to let us sit at a table, as it was their "dinner rush" (this with 5 open tables in the cramped restaurant). Even when we said we'd order appetizers, they were snippy and reluctant to let us sit. When I finally made a frustrated comment, the waiter said "Geez, order a drink and freakin' chill out!!" That was enough. We turned tail and left. Our money would be better spent at a more welcoming establishment, as would yours. Avoid this place unless you want to be treated like a child.

Pros: Good mojitos, Near the beach

Cons: Snobby, rude staff, Sloooooow service, PRICEY

I have been to the restaurant with my wife and my mistress for breakfast on several occasions. We particularly love the atmosphere. The restaurant is on the street within a 100 yards of the beach. There is a nice patio outside and the front part of the restaurant is open to the street and has no roof as well. Being close to the beach, the temperature is very comfortable. In the morning it is quiet as well. The breakfast dishes are delicious. We all very much enjoyed the omlettes. Admittedly it seemed like the kitchen was very slow - but - we were in no hurry. I am ready to go back to LA just to eat breakfast there. Even alone!

There were some nice aspects to the food but the there was too much "bad" that we were not able to overlook.
1. Silverware, stemware and table were not clean. I don't want to know what the person who was using the fork before me was eating.

2. Who trained these servers? Embarassing. Wrong wine order twice and when it the white bottle came it was warm. Seriously I have had better service at a Denny's.

I dont want to spend anymore time thinking about all else that went wrong.

DON'T LET ANY OTHER REVIEWS FOOL YOU. I LIVE 3 BLOCKS FROM THE MERCEDES GRILL. I LOVE THEIR PANCAKES AND WISH I COULD ENJOY THEM MORE. HOWEVER, EVERY SINGLE TIME I GO I CAN EXPECT TO WAIT AT LEAST AN HOUR FOR MY FOOD. THE STAFF IS UNAPOLOGETIC AND HORRIBLY TRAINED. IF THIS RESTAURANT WAS ANYWHERE BUT RIGHT NEXT TO THE BEACH IT WOULD BE OUT OF BUSINESS. THE POEPLE WHO GAVE THIS PLACE A POSITIVE REVEIW EITHER OT REALLY LUCKY OR WORK FOR THE RESTAURANT. SUMMARY: GREAT LOCATION, DECENT FOOD, HORRIBLE SERVICE AND BAD PRICES.

Hey I was just walking around venice and I found this cute little restaurant that you can sit outside or be seated inside as well. The appetizers were tasty and the dinner I had was great (shrimp tostada). Great wine selection and service was good. Great spot for lunch or dinner especially right off of the beach.

My girlfriend and I were pleasantly surprised with our dinner at Mercedes Grill last Saturday night at prime time. The eclectic menu was exotic but approachable, reflecting the energetic ambience of the restaurant. There were tasty dishes with good values, as well as pricier offerings - all were VERY attractive dishes. There was a coolness that makes you glad to be there without the pretense that usually means you have to "be someone" to get in the door... Great specialty drinks - recommend the mango martini
