LEONA began as a thoughtful and refreshing dining experience just steps from the sand in Venice Beach, California. The menu reflects the vibrant culinary culture of California with a focus on farmer's market products and a nod to southern home cooking by Chef Jennifer O'Neil.

In 2016 and 2017, LEONA has been included in Jonathan Gold's 101 Best Restaurants list for the LA Times and continues to be recognized as a local favorite in Venice Beach.
