Rushed. An otherwise lovely dining experience lost some joy because courses arrived too soon. The staff members were gracious and cheerful but I would have preferred a slower pace.

Came here for Dine LA 2019. We added the pork belly appetizer on top of the appetizer on the menu of a Kale Salad and carpaccio albacore. The main course was the wild boar Spaghetti and Salmon. For dessert we were served a tiramisu and miniature apple pie with complimenting ice cream.

The food was simply amazing. That pork belly appetizer was amazing. It was maybe the most tasty thing I’ve ever had. Soft and delicious with a little crunch on the outside. The Salmon has the most amazing crispiness on the skin and soft amazing delicious in the meat. The Spaghetti was delicious with an excellent chew on the pasta and spiciness. If anything negative, the pasta has a bit of a salty taste to it. But still excellent.

This is was by far an amazing experience. Delicious, top quality service and food. Food is served family style with enough to share with another person. The value is in the excellent of the food with enough to share and encouraged. Perfect place to share an amazing meal for a special occasion, a birthday, or anniversary.

We came in a Friday night - Dinner Parking was super easy, plenty of parking spaces and validation. Would highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back for sure.

We have dined at this restaurant 7 times in the past. Our last visit was for dinela. This is the first time that I should have demanded either a refund or another entree. I ordered the pork loin. Horrible. Dry as shoe leather. For the prices of their food, there is no excuse for such an awful meal.

Special Anniversary Treat
From personalizing our menus with our names printed on to the scrumptious chocolate dessert, amuse bouche and packets of granola to take home for breakfast, Craft made our anniversary dinner special. The prix fixe menu was wonderful, especially the kale salad and the quail, and the wine list is excellent, with solid recommendations from the sommelier-- oh, and the service is great, too!

The bartender was very rude to us so our evening got off to a very rough start. Then the hostess, because we were two women tried to give us a table either by the water station or the computer. Our server was wonderful and tried to make up for the fact that , as two women, we felt invisible. Come on Tom C. Haven’t you trained your staff treat women with the same respect as men? Guess not.

On arriving, we were greeted like guests in a private home. The variety of dishes served family style throughout the dinner made the experience really fun. We started with an amuse bouche soup and fresh bread and butter followed by appetizers of kohlrabi/ apple slice salad with fermented Fresno peppers, porchetta with brocolli/ tonnato, and winter squash toast. The kholrabi was a perfect palate cleansing dish to start. For the mains, we chose the wagyu beef sirloin (tasty), and the diver scallops (perfectly cooked). Sides were creamy mashed potatoes and a mushroom bowl. Every mushroom's distinctive flavor was preserved. A rarity at most restaurants. Desserts included a moist almond cake (excellent), a chocolate tart with delicious melon segments, a vanilla bean ice cream, and the most amazing sorbet. A pear flavor we found incredible. Wishing they'd package it for sale. With our espressos, we also got tiny cookies and yummy mint brownie bites and, as we were leaving, we were given cranberry muffins for brunch the next day. Terrific service and a memorable meal. Can wait to return. Wishing we could give them an extra star for making our New Year's Eve really special.

Christmas Eve dinner was special at Craft. Top notch service and delicious dishes that brought home that holiday feeling! Truffle Risotto, Torchio Pasta with Sausage, Avocado Salad, Roasted Carrots, Roasted Cauliflower and Au Gratin Potatoes were all favorites at our table! For dessert, we over did it but had to try the Banana Cream Pie, Chocolate Tart, our favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies along with a scoop of Coconut Sorbet! We were not disappointed! A fabulous dining experience was had by all!

Several times during the evening I felt I was not worthy of the high quality and excellent service. The service was tremendous and the little extras from the kitchen were endearing. I really enjoyed the homemade granola. I will return as often as my budget allows.

We ordered fish based on the server's recommendation. It was amazing. Everything we had was amazing including the wine. We had dessert and they then gave us extra dessert on the house. After paying the bill we were given 2 bags of homemade granola. I highly recommend this restaurant. Our waiter gave us excellent service. It was my first time there and I will definitely be back.

There was nothing special about the meal. It’s a bummer to spend the holidays at a nice restaurant and have the food be subpar. The stand out was the Yukon potatoes and the scallops. I was Hoping the turkey and stuffing would be great on thanksgiving but it was on par with Boston market without the inexpensive prices. Bummer.

Really cool resturant. Great food and I love the family style. Som did a great job with the wine. The only down side was the waiter. He really was no help. Asked about what drink, he said they are all good. Asked about thoughts on food, said all food was good. Asked to see the Somm for thoughts on wine and I kid you not he said all wines are on the list. He really made a great meal just average.
