A word from Craft Los Angeles
Tom Colicchio's Craft in New York City received the James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant nationwide in 2002 & five years later brought Craft across the country to join the other "top chefs" in Los Angeles. His new American dishes marry the finest ingredients, haute cuisine and family-style service. Under the execution of Chef de Cuisine Raymond England, Craft features produce from local organic farms, all-natural meats & day-boat seafood. With the award-winning architectural design of Bentel and Bentel & under the glow of filament bulbs, diners share dishes that celebrate 'single' ingredients, expertly & simply prepared.



Awarded Three and a Half Stars by S. Irene Virbila of the Los Angeles Times, she states:

“The menu offers a master class in contemporary American cuisine. You won’t find recipes with 17 ingredients or unnecessary frills. Each dish relies on simplicity & elegance, superb ingredients & expert execution to make its point."

Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant is a lovely place to have a meal. The service is amazing. They are very good at taking care of their tables without being fussy. We had the DineLA menu; the heirloom tomato salad was delicious, the little gem salad was fantastic. We had the Salmon and the Pork. Both were delicious. The sauce and grits with the pork were particularly good. The dessert, cinnamon sugar doughnuts and a creme fraiche panna cotta with strawberries were absolutely fantastic, even to my friend who never eats sweets. My favorite touch we the little fun things they brought out. There was a gazpacho amuse bouche, wonderful peas and carrots with our mains, caramel popcorn and a bag of homemade granola to take for breakfast. Just perfect."

  • "What sets Craft apart from most LA restaurants is 1) the lighting is perfect and 2) the service makes you feel like royalty. The food is creative and delicious. And the outdoor patio is wonderful for cocktails."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "This was my first time to Craft. The service was outstanding and I really liked the setting and the look of the restaurant. We took advantage of the Dine LA at $45. The small taste of gazpacho at the beginning was wonderful. I would give it 5 stars, however, I wasn't crazy about the cauliflower hummus. The bread was amazing and I really liked the way they had multiple appetizers and 2 desserts for the two of us that we could share. I will definitely go back, although it is pricey, but surely worth it."

  • "I was very surprised at how wonderful my experience was when I dined here, from the level of service to the impeccable quality of the food."

  • "We were totally impressed with this restaurant; the food was spectacular, and the service was impeccable. It's a beautiful restaurant, too. We would definitely come back again. It is pricey, but the DineLA menu was more varied than most."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "From the beginning I felt welcomed and not just another patron. I was walked directly to a great section on the restaurant and prompty attended too. The Place was not too packed and ambience was warming. Tables were a little close but comfortable. Food was very good. Came for the DineLA deal and left satisfied. Would definitely try this place again!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Lunched at this classy eatery with friends during Dine L.A. week. We were surprised at the limited menu. Seems the quail was taken off the advertised menu that day and left little to choose from. The avocado and peanut appetizer was merely a bowl of lettuce. Strange! Plus, unlike other Dine L.A. restaurants on the list, the dessert was extra at Craft. Not much of a bargain. The food was tasty though. Guess I would try the place again. Great location; and parking was a deal."

  • "Just excellent! Food was outrageously good! My number 1 pick for restaurant week 2014."

  • "I first had craft for last years dineLA week. I really enjoyed and decide to go back for a second time for dineLA this week. However, the food was not as good this time. I ordered the beef short rib and the pasta was undercooked. We had it send back, but it didn't taste the same. The appetizers were "ok" and not as good as I expected. The cheesecake dessert texture was grainy and a little blend. Overall, it was a bit disappointing."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Great food. Everything we ate was delicious. I ordered the chorizo and raisin salad. Was skeptical at first. I ended up cleaning my plate. The mushrooms and shisito peppers were a great compliment."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "So many delicate flavors composed together reflecting thoughtful preparation and presentation."

  • "This was one of the top restaurant experiences I've had and I was solo! I went for a weekday lunch during Dine LA Restaurant Week. The flavor profiles were unique and delicious. The staff were so nice and attentive. I never felt "abandoned" as I have in so many restaurants whether alone or with others. I left feeling satisfied and pleased with the choice I made, again, not a common feeling when trying a restaurant. I can't wait to bring my husband in the near future!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "I have been here a few times and after having lunch there this week I am plotting how I can get back for a meal soon! Never disappoints."

    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We ate at Craft for DineLA and it was spectacular. Not only was the food incredible (literally the best salmon I have ever eaten), but with DineLA they bring you multiple appetizers and desserts, plus there is a large selection of entrees. Other DineLA restaurant menus have been very limited, but not this one. We truly had a wonderful evening. One itsy-bitsy quibble -- it was my birthday, and I was hoping for a candle in my delicious cinamon-sugar donut. ;-) Oh well -- maybe they don't do that there. Still a five-star meal in my opinion."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "My total experience was outstanding - from an enthusiastic welcoming greeting to receiving a warm thank you farewell. The food was wonderful. We dined there during Dine L.A. Week. The selections were delicious and each one paired well with those that followed. My friend was celebrating her birthday. She received a menu with a written personalized birthday greeting and a tasty piece of chocolate cake which was large enough for us all to share. I will return. Thanks Craft for a wonderful evening!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "This was a Dine LA restaurant. The prix fixe lunch was a disappointment, as I'm sure is the case when restaurants participate in the event. We had a salad and John Dory fish as entrée. The fish was dry and overly salty. The salad was mostly lettuce. Dessert wasn't even included. That was six dollars extra per person."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We had dinner at Craft during dine la week, and had a wonderful experience. The wait staff was friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable regarding the menu options. Because we were celebrating a birthday, the chef sent over several complimentary sides. Craft is a perfect choice for a special occasion dinner."

  • "My experience on Saturday night was perfect. Parking was $1 in the structure that night. The ambiance of the restaurant is a chic, and up scale, but you do not feel out of place in jeans and heels. The music selection was amazing and in the background at the right level. The food was from the Dine LA menu. The best setup I have seen with three appetizers for the table, the main course, and two desserts for the table. We were able to try a little of everything. The gem salad, heirloom tomato, and cauliflower hummus were perfect. We added the grilled octopus for 4 apps. The main course was the pork with broccoli and grits. The pork was cooked perfectly and could be sliced with a butter knife. The short rib pasta dish was divine. Dessert done"

  • "Every dish we tried here was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The cocktails were inventive and outstanding. I never count on celebrity chef driven restaurants turning out exceptional food, but Craft really delivers."

  • "Classy and scrumptious all the way through. Every plate was beautifully plated and delicious. The service was excellent! Our waiter was so friendly and checked in with us just enough where it wasn't pestering but it wasn't rare."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We arrived earlier than the rest of our party and the restaurant was so accommodating! We tried to sit outside and wait, but got too cold, so came inside and was immediately in good hands with the super attentive staff - truly had an enjoyable experience all around!"

  • "Good is not that great at all but super pricy. Boring dishes."

Interesting takes on traditional food options as well as offerings not seen elsewhere. I've dined here three times in the past year, and have never been disappointed. Highly recommended."

  • "Flawless, friendly service. Delicious meal; the proteins were especially good as was the avocado salad and pea risotto."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The only down side was the price; the price for branded alcohol was much more expensive than in other comparable restaurants. The food was delicious but then again priced in the upper range compared to similar places."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This is my favorite place to dine when in LA...the food is always spot-on perfect. The wine selection is interesting and great. And the service is professional, friendly, and committed to ensuring a good evening. I always look forward to returning."

  • "Bright and pleasant restaurant. Loved the "family style" manner of serving. Both entrees (duck and halibut) were delicious, as were the very simple but tasty arugula salad and side dish."

  • "My husband and I had our two year anniversary dinner at Craft. They gave us a great booth in a semi-secluded spot, and had the menu's embossed with a Happy Anniversary message to us. The Diver Scallops melted in my mouth...so good!! My husband had the King salmon and loved it. For dessert we had the donuts and cookies...superb! Can't wait to go back. Craft wait staff were so attentive and all the details were perfect."

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Being a non-meat eater, it is clear that I may have missed out on the main attraction of Craft - short ribs for the table seemed to be all the rage. I had a salmon salad which, sadly, was pedestrian (my friend had the sole which he said was good but not spectacular). That said, the service was excellent, the ambiance was also very good. I can rave about the desserts. I went with the doughnuts, coffee ice cream, and chocolate. It was truly excellent. The prix fixe is a relatively good deal, with appetizer, entree and dessert."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We chose Craft for a special milestone birthday dinner and it was excellent in every way. The cocktail I enjoyed at the bar was balanced and they were able to transfer our bar tab to our table without an issue - a big service plus. The pea risotto, the lamb and the duck were all quite memorable. I found the dishes to be well executed and flavorful without unnecessary flourishes (no foams or spheres here - just real food). The quality of the ingredients showed through. The peas in the risotto were sweet but not overly so and the risotto itself was just the right consistency (not a fan of mushy pasta). I was glad to see both lamb and duck on the menu and they did not disappoint. All in all, my best meal of the year. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Appetizers...side dishes, ambience, service, wine selection and presentation were excellent. Entrees were "good" but not outstanding. Halibut was good but dry...scallops were good but not memorable...short-ribs had good texture but flavor was compromised by tasting overly "fat." Not the "Craft" experience that I have enjoyed previously."
