Wonderful find in the East village.
A great thing about traveling is finding restaurants that are neither too expensive or too cheap. Utopia restaurant was wonderful, I went their 2 nights in a row!
This restaurant offers so much on their menu and the penne pasta dish had the right amount of spices and not overwhelming. They have an excellent wine list and even a cute outdoor area for seating and people watching!
My fiance and I visited Utopia based on a review of their bread pudding, a big favorite in our house. We told the waitress why we were there, and she made additional great recommendations about dessert and even asked where we had seen the review. She stopped back to ask if we enjoyed the bread pudding (it was great - dense and filled with sweet fruits and nuts) and all in all, made the experience welcoming. There were also two guitar players present that added to the warm ambiance.
great little place in long beach!.
My boyfriend and I went to Utopia for our Valentine's dinner and I was very impressed. The food was excellent and the ambiance is very cute, a perfect place to go on a date. It reminded me of the little restaurants you find in the East Coast, unlike the large chain restaurants here. This is quality!
