Brilliant food. Amazing donuts.Brilliant food. Amazing donuts. One of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Old FriendMy wife and I go to BLD over and over because the food is consistently good and the service always pleases. Specials are often interesting and you can count on a worthwhile featured wine. Prices are fair and, with drinks and an appetizer, run in the $40's per person.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy non oily breakfast brunchMy friend and I had early breakfast here on a Monday morning and it was very quiet. We ordered pancakes, frittata and eggs benedict with chorizo. The food portions were big and the blueberry pancakes were light and fluffy. None of it was greasy or oily and looked very clean.
We were massively full afterwards but thoroughly enjoyed a real American style breakfast in LA.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLunchGreat spot for lunch. I recommend the Moroccan lamb burger - great flavors.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Outstanding ServiceThis was the second time I've been to this restaurant with my wife on a date night and I can't find a better place to go. The menu is amazing, the staff there is spot on and the environment is just right.
Our dinner was shared between the two of us(Beet Salad and Pork w/ Brussel Sprouts with a Banana Cream Pie - go to their menu, they explain these dishes much better than I can) and it was amazing from start to finish.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad another great experienceHad another great experience at BLD! Flavor thrills abound at this place and service is always terrific. Breakfast, lunch or dinner... it's a go-to spot for me.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove BLD!The food was delicious as always. The service was good, but our server was not the friendliest. The food more than made up for that!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food/Not Amazing ServiceThe food and beverages were absolutely delicious, but the service was horrible. We wanted to order more, and the waitress rarely came by, nor did bus boys to clear plates.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GreatTheir Friday night special short rib beef & burrata taco was amazing. I've never had a bad bite here.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service from TJI went to BLD for their Ham & Whiskey Dinner. My date had the Ham & Whiskey and I couldn't help but try their chicken and waffles. I'm so glad I did because it's a not-to-be-missed meal. It was off the hook. The waffle came with bacon and shallot infused homemade butter!! The chicken was extra crispy and sooooo juicy. And the donut dessert that came with the Ham & Whiskey dinner... well, let's just say my date and I ate it with our eyes closed because it was so incredible. Even better than the food, though, was our server. TJ was incredible and made our evening memorable. He works Wednesdays which is also BLD's donut dessert night. I'm going back for both! Thank you, TJ.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place to go with familyWent here with a big group (including several kids) at 6pm on a Wednesday. What a treat. The service was great, they accommodated our kids' requests very politely, and the food was delicious. I have always liked this place, but this especially nice experience elevates BLD to another level in my book.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI would not use the word romanticI would not use the word romantic to describe lunch at BLD, unless you are in love with the carpet-less noise of the croud inside, or the busy Beverly Blvd traffic outside. However, there was a croud inside because the food is fine & fun. Who knew the riotta blueberry pancakes would be such a hit for my vegetarian guest, while my Moroccan Lamb Burger, w/lemon cucumber yogurt & feta cheese made me shamelessly lick my fingers right in front of her. It was also great, in this day of mega-menus with hundreds of choices that take mure than your 90 minute lunchtime to read, to see a resturant with the confidence to serve a few things, but serve them quite well. Go for food, go for fun, and I guess that could very well lead to romance.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMService is amazing, food isService is amazing, food is amazing, what more could you ask for?4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBLD should revise their policyBLD should revise their policy to NOT SEAT PARTIES UNTIL FULL PARTY HAS ARRIVED. If 3/4 of the party has arrived, I think they should be seated when a reservation has been made. BLD gets very busy for Brunch and I asked when our full party arrives and there are no tables left when we made reservations on Open Table, we were told reservations under parties of 5 are NOT guaranteed - THEN WHY MAKE RESERVATIONS IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMlove the blueberry pancakeslove the blueberry pancakes here and the fried egg sandwich.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOKAY, I'M THERE! AGAIN!Great service, great food, and truly romantic and cozy. It was our first time there. It will not be our last time there. And if you're a vegetarian, the vegetarian items are great, not just an afterthought. A word of caution, the pastry chef is in league with the devil -- UNBELIEVABLE! Each course was a dream, and the dessert was the capper! Not that the dessert was better than what we ordered (order the butter lettuce salad to start, it will knock you out!), but it was the perfect end to a perfect meal. Our waitress was amicable but not intrusive. Since it was our first time there everyone took the time to make sure we knew every item that was available that night and why we would like it. Honestly, I can't wait to go back with my wife.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMbld is always a great placebld is always a great place to eat. I am never disappointed.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBreakfast was amazing. BlueberryBreakfast was amazing. Blueberry pancakes and juevos rancheros were both the best we have had anywhere.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to this restaurantI have been to this restaurant several times over several years. The food is high quality and inventive with a leaning toward the health conscious. The portions are on the smaller side but big enough. There is something for everyone on the menu from the adventurous to the conservative. I experienced attentive service and and found the menu reasonably priced.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT FOR A BUSINESS LUNCHloved the restaurant - would go back again!!!! It was my first time. Great for a business lunch.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI love BLD. I prefer the regularI love BLD. I prefer the regular menu items I have had before to the Dine LA selections, though. My fish was bland and the appetizer
(Crab falafel) was just ok. But my husband loved his kale pasta. I am usually wowed by the food. But the service was perfect, even though it was
Quite full. The cocktails were impressive, the price was great. Not much to complain about.2/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceThe staff is warm and friendly whether you're at a table or sitting at the bar.
