  • "Convenient neighborhood, reasonable food. Lovely table - easy and private to talk. Could have provided some bread given upscale nature and prices for simple salads, which were not memorable. "

  • "Extremely over priced, especially for the location and ambiance. "

  • "Bel Air Bar + Grill is a great spot for a business lunch, especially if you are on the west side and are meeting clients from the valley. It is also a very nice spot to stop for a drink after work. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly and attentive."

  • "Sadly, since they remodeled the experience here is too noisy. Often it's impossible to visit with friends. Why do restauranteurs think that their patrons DON'T want to talk with friends??? The food and service are wonderful but we won't be back because one can only have a "pigs at the trough" experience. "

  • "what an absolute treasure this place will become when the construction from hell on and around the 405 and sunset/sepulveda is finally finsihed. once inside, we are treated to comfortable seating, fine service and very good food. plus, and a very big plus, an atmosphere for normal conversation. the noise factor that ruins so many otherwise fine restaurants is absent here and is a major asset. heads should roll at CALTRANS for the utter mess they've created in the area with no apparent end in sight. "

  • "Great whitefish, piping hot, on a tasty bed of spinach and Brussels sprouts. Scrumptious and sweet ginger carrot soup (non dairy). Tried a new cocktail - with tequila, ginger beer and lime juice - very refreshing and interesting. Husband had his usual ribs and french fries. They were excellent, although the portion of ribs wasn't as generous as usual. (But it was certainly fine.) Waiter (Sean) was really nice. We go here about once a month or once every six weeks. It's definitely worth it. "

  • "We had a fantastic and enjoyable evening, the food was oustanding, service was very good and the owner is there taking care of everybody ... A place to visit many times !!!!!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We had a good experience. The ambiance is nice....very pretty decor. It's a great place to talk because it's not too loud. The booths are very comfortable. It's also a perfect location to meet if some guests are coming from the Westside and some from the Valley. It was pretty empty on Saturday for brunch but it was the day before Easter so people were probably away or waiting for Easter brunch. The food is good and there's a broad enough selection...something for everyone. I have been there many times over the years and it is consistently good."

  • "We had a lovely dinner with out family, the service was terrific as was the food. In February I had a birthday celebration at this restaurant, which I, unfortunately forgot to book with Open Table, and there were 14 people, Bel Air Bar and Grill did a terrific job, each and everyone enjoyed their food and the service was excellent, we enjoyed their Wines and brought some of our own, their corkage is a bit high, I think, especially with such a large party they could have had a less expensive corkage, other than that I highly recommend this Restaurant."

  • "We live nearby and go here whenever we want a high quality, highly enjoyable meal, with predictably good food and friendly, attentive service. We often take out-of-town guests here, because we know they are consistent, and the varied menu promises good choices for almost anyone. Most recently, I had a pan seared white fish (yummy), our friend from New Jersey had a pasta with a bolognese sauce which she thoroughly enjoyed, and everyone shared delicious appetizers of fried brie with a sweet compote (apples and pears? it was great with the cheese) and the tuna tartare (always excellent). My husband loves their fried calamari and shrimp. They listen to your tastes, and will switch things around. They also make a great margarita."

  • "Waiting in the car for five minutes for valet starting the evening just great. Than to walk in to the wonderful charming hostess who said nothing for three minutes while she cleaned the menus.......than she spoke!! You are eating up stairs to night. We thought was something okay?? Well the only other couple up there, the wife sleeping on the table and the husband on his cell phone and some kind of construction going on. So were we not good enough to eat downstairs? I had this reservation for over a week???"

  • "There is no reason not to go back soon. The ambience made me feel good as soon as I walked in. The room colors, surfaces and tasteful wall art me feel welcome and comfortable. Service is excellent. I had the artichoke first and I could have easily had another for my main dish. I can still see and taste it. The sole on parchment was a fantastic delight and I am happy that my waiter made the suggestion."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "The Bel Air Bar and Grill is easy to miss, lying as it is right next to the 405 on Sepulveda and tucked into an otherwise nondescript office building. But the adage about people beating a path to your door is spot-on in this case. The food is well prepared, and their lunch salads are delicious, especially the lobster cobb with a generous portion of succulent lobster. The bar mixes great martinis and bloody marys."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "We thought this would be a great little neighborhood spot for dinner. The location was great and the place was charming enough, but it turned out to be a very pricey dinner for a slightly better-than-average experience. We'll probably grab takeout in the future but not return for full-service dining."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We went solely from Open Table recommendation and were not disappointed. We sat next to the fire and two of the group enjoyed the daily prix fixe choices. Everyone loved their meal, special raves about the salad course. Excellent service, attentive but not intrusive. Definitely worth visiting. A must for locals!!"

  • "I've been to this restaurant many times and the food is good but the staff isn't very well managed. If it wasn't convenient for my friend and I to meet here we would find another place to dine."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "Used to really like this place - great dark and cozy ambiance with fireplace, booths etc. Then, during the 405 remodel, they re-did this place, too. Bummer. Now it looks and feels like a Dennys - too light with blond wood floors and walls, booths gone (mostly) for these clunky tables. The back room looks generic American restaurant (not in a good way at all) and front area looks like a pass through. The fireplace can hardly be seen from most of the seats. Although, some of the art on the walls was truly great - I will say that. Food was still good overall (salad and cioppino for me, different salad and rare steak for my SO) but we probably won't be back since that Denny's vibe isn't really my gig."

  • "We frequent BAB&G for dinner and lunch and were curious how the brunch experience would be at one of our favorite local restaurants. We made reservations for brunch on Saturday in the early afternoon. The restaurant was not crowded, however there was not enough staff to handle the small groups that were there. The food was delicious, but took a very long time to be served. Wait staff were not available in a timely manner for drink refills or add-ons once the meal was served. Bread was not on the menu, and the toast that was offered as an alternative was not ok for those having pasta or salad. Overall, brunch was very disappointing. We will return to BAB&G for other meals, but not brunch."

  • "Steaks all round for our party. Perfectly cooked and delicious. This is a reliable restaurant and conveniently close to home so it is often the "go to" restaurant when traffic is not good for elsewhere."

  • "A real gem in the neighborhood! Excellent all round."

  • "SO GLAD the Bel Air Bar and Grille has reopened following a gorgeous re-model. Everything is first class (but caltrans is doing its best to make it hard to get too ---- but go anyway and support them through the construction. Can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Over priced. The food was fair, wasn't ever remotely close to justify the price. I felt like we paid for the location. Disappointing."
    Dined on 12/8/2013
  • "This was our first visit and we really enjoyed the food and the service. I don't think you can go wrong with any menu item and the gooey chocolate cookie for dessert is a must try. The service was attentive and made for a wonderful overall experience. We were there on a Saturday night and it was not overly busy. The average age of the crowd was about 60."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "I have been twice now since they reopened and both were good, salads both times. Need to return to try out dinner and bar scene. But love the remodel but miss the old outdoor dining area."
    Dined on 12/4/2013
  • "Delicious food and lovely ambiance. Service was very slow - we did not get our entrees until 1 1/4 hours after we sat down. The ambiance would be greatly improved if they would take steps to sound proof the restaurant. We want to visit with friends when dining - why does that seem to be an outrageous request?"
    Dined on 12/4/2013
  • "We love Bel Air Bar & Grill, and have been going for years. This time we introduced a pair of friends, who'd never been, and they loved it too. They had the pear salad, pumpkin ravioli and a whitefish from the night's specials; my husband had ribs (with mountains of French fries he avoided), and I had an amazing branzino special (fish) that came with an excellent lobster risotto - topped with lots of sweet lobster meat. The menu is delightfully broad. The service, as usual, was friendly and efficient."

  • "ambiance is a major change from before. decor is sophisticated and chic but would have liked an outdoor patio. food is ok but quite a bit overpriced. I had a salad with chicken added and it came to $23. it looked very plain when served with no garnish. it tasted fine but NOT for $23. would have paid about $15 elsewhere. don't think I'd run back there."
