We loved our first dining experience here and can't wait to come back. The ambiance was fabulous on a rare rainy night in LA with the cozy interior of the dining room and the fireplace lit. The cocktails were fabulous and the food excellent as well. The bread/rolls are to die for. A little pricey for 3 pieces but we were glad we tried them. Would like to see that as a complimentary item perhaps charging only for an extra order and offering 4 of for a party of two. Who wants to fight over a 3rd roll? Everything was perfect otherwise. I don't live close so coming back means braving LA traffic but I will definitely return!

I feel like I've been to this exact same restaurant a thousand times in Hollywood. I found it to be overpriced and un-unique. The food was good but not good enough to compensate for the bored waitstaff and uninspired ambiance.

All the dishes were excellent, much to my surprise, the most outstanding dish was a preparation of winter squash! Excellent wine list, a bit pricey but with some bargains if you hunt for them. The staff was friendly and professional and I never felt rushed, which is one thing I dislike about many American restaurants. Was too busy enjoying the food to take pictures!

The restaurant is really cool and very inviting. The staff was friendly however it did take a while to get serviced.
I really wanted to love this place because it come highly recommended. However the two items that I ordered : the steak tartare and the potatoes were just not very good. However my girlfriend did really like the banana bread desert.

Maybe there are better items to choose on the menu but from the experience with the food that night I probably would not come back for dinner again.

The Hanger Steak with Sunchokes was phenomenal. Perfectly cooked steak. The blistered sunchokes were such a treat. Best meal I've had all month! And the warm, buttery Parker House rolls are delicious. Worthy of the white flour indulgence.
The patio vibe is bright and lively and the inside seating is warm and romantic. And the hostess was on point!

The food, cocktail, and wine were fantastic. Really enjoyed the peach and the tartare which were very uniquely prepared. The Parker House rolls are the platonic ideal of dinner rolls. The cod with pepperonata and saffron sauce was perfect and paired great with the patatas bravas which were right out of Barcelona. Great wines for each course and a delicious espresso semifreddo for dessert. Service was warm and friendly. A perfect meal in a beautiful space.

The first time we went here we had a nice meal. Tonight was a different story. My husband waited 35 minutes for his margarita. Our starters came out quickly and then we waited with empty plates for 1 HOUR for our entrees. Our waiter was no where to be found at any point. The music kept getting louder and quieter, so we had a hard time talking at points. Sadly really terrible experience. Our dinner for 4 people was $500 with automatic gratuity so we couldn’t even tip our waiter according to the terrible service we received. Really disappointed, and likely won’t ever return. Beautiful courtyard... that’s about it.

Nice ambiance, the patio was lovely. However, we ordered at 7:20, and it was 8:25 before our appetizer reached the table, and then 9:05 before the entrees arrived. The vegetables were way over salted and the patatas bravas really dry. They comped the potatoes and gave us free mint tea (which apparently takes 7 minutes to steep). I waited tables for years, and every so often there would be a table where everything went wrong. I guess I was that table that night. Our server was lovely, but didn’t seem able to fix it.
