Californian
The Draycott is a California-inspired family-friendly Brasserie, created by Matt and Marissa Hermer. Named as an homage to London’s Draycott Avenue, where the husband-and-wife restaurateur duo first met, The Draycott features wholesome and classic dishes using locally sourced ingredients.

The restaurant-café melds the ambiance of Europe with a convivial all-day environment, featuring seasonal lunch and dinner menus served with a British twist.

After moving from London – where Matt and Marissa own and operate award- winning bars and restaurants – to Pacific Palisades, they wanted to create a place that married all the things they love about Southern California and all the things they miss about London.

With this, Matt and Marissa (along with their children, Max, Jake, and Sadie) warmly welcome you into their new home, The Draycott.

Yikes! $94 for a hamberger, no sides, a nicoise salad with salmon, two glasses of prosecco ($15 each, barely 5 oz.) and an iced tea. No parking validation. View of a lawn filled with screaming, out of controll kids while ma & pa drank wine. Staff pleasant enough. Not worth the drive.

Cute place but poor food. As a Londoner myself I hope that the regulars here are aware that British food is a thousand times better than this! I had the English breakfast - eggs were dry, sausage was so average, bacon was not how I had requested it. I had high hopes but disappointed:(

Disappointed. Was looking forward to this lunch. Dine LA price originally listed at $35 and they switched it to $45. 3 Course Meal had very little options. Salad was good, Chicken Sandwich was a little dry and desert was average. Definitely not worth $45 a person. The manager offered bread and it never came. I asked the waitress and she also never brought bread. We were seated next to a very loud couple. It was an average meal at a high price for lunch.

We sat on the lovely patio next to a table with three kids and four adults. The kids squealed and ran around. One almost tipped over the heater. The parents ignored them and no one from the restaurant said a word. So much for a relaxing dinner.

Its a nice setting but if you want a peaceful, quiet dinner, don't go on a Saturday night or probably any warm summer night. Its like a playground with all the families camped out and the kids running around and screaming. The food and service are good but the menu is a bit limited.

We had lunch on a Saturday afternoon, and were seated outside. The service was excellent - attentive but not obtrusive. The food and drinks were really good. Although it was busy, it was not too noisy - perhaps becasue we were seated outside. Would recommend.

They didn't have the ribeye I wanted.
I didn't like the flat iron steak.
Service was slow.
Management is always nice.
I did not enjoy the experience this time.
They charged extra for the fries that usually comes with the hamburger we ordered.

The menu selection was so limited. At 1:30 pm, most of the menu items were eggs or breakfast. Only 1 salad selection and the quality/freshness wasn’t great. To top it off, the waitress looked like she was having a bad day and was so rude. We won’t be going there again.

The portion size of the Greek salad - about 3 flimsy slices of tomato, 2 or 3 olives and a microdot of feta - I had and my wife’s crudo were minuscule. My fish and chips was ridiculously heavy on the potatoes and meager on the fish. Poor value for the money. The $40 corkage was also a bit much. 25 is routine, 30 is fine. 40 is a bit of a gouge. The quality of the food and preparation was OK but unremarkable. Nothing particularly flavorful. Not a top tier dining experience food-wise, for sure.

The lunch menu had such a poor selection & the food was not good at all. The salad which I opted to not have any tomato’s consisted of only lettuce. Other than Cesar salad which I don’t eat there was no good salad options.
Obviously that was an expensive salad considering it was only lettuce.. granted I asked for avocado which they gave me a few slices.
Also ordered fish. It was small & no flavor. Horrible!
I was so embarrassed to recommend this restaurant for lunch. I have been here for dinners & it was pretty good ... never great!
Such a disappointing experience!

The Draycott is a very special restaurant. Superbly sourced produce, fish and meat delightfully prepared. The staff cares about guest enjoyment and are sensitive to feedback. They adjusted their corkage fee and it is appropriate, especially since they provide the correct wine glass for each wine. We are fortunate to have the Draycott in our neighborhood.

We had a very enjoyable dinner, but the best part took place after we left. They looked up our OpenTable reservation and phoned me at home with the news that they had found a hearing aid under the table. Above and beyond the call of duty, and greatly appreciated.
