His new American dishes marry the finest ingredients, haute cuisine and family-style service. Under the execution of Chef de Cuisine Ray 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 food was fabulous, service was stupendous and restaurant was beautiful. I feel as though anything we would have chosen to eat would have been great. Loved the little bites they served here and there on the house. Avocado salad was delicious. Scallops were to die for. The beef short ribs were just okay. Baby carrots were yummy and so was the gnocchi.

    Hard to say anything negative about this place. The service was friendly and attentive without being stuffy or intrusive. The food is stunningly good. I had lamb and my wife had duck. Both were among the best we have ever had. The decor is open and attractive. The wine list is very good, and they pour a lot of good wine by the glass. Heck, the parking was even free--on Saturday.

Lovely ambiance, good music, and most importantly - great food. Delicious pork belly, halibut, brussels sprouts, avocado salad and wine. Would absolutely go back.

    I went there for a business dinner...had a great evening. The food is good but I felt, with all the hype, it would be better. Being from San Francisco I have eaten a better short rib for half the price. Pasrts of the meat was chewy...bad news for their short ribs. But, overall, the dinner was great.

    We had never been to craft before, and honestly were not familiar with the restaurant. I cannot remark highly enough about the impeccable service we received from every member of the staff, from the moment we were greeted until we walked out the door. Every bite was scrumptious and meticulously prepared. That the ingredients are locally sourced and lovingly selected is evident across the menu. Nothing is over thought. Every plate is honest, artful and beautiful. A great place to go with at least four people so you can order more items to share.

    Service and attitude of staff was professional and capable. Waiters were attentive but not overbearing. Food was excellent. Portions were huge and were clearly enough to share. We were asked if we had eaten at Craft in the past and we did but the size of the portions was unexpected. But that was really our fault in not asking the right question. It was too good to complain. I would highly recommend the restaurant.

    We booked from overseas months ago and were very excited. The quail was not pink, more red and served n a hot dish but it was only slightly warm. The halibut was dry, but The eggplant worked well in the dish. We would not recommend to friends that it is a place they must sample.

    Very much enjoyed the experience at dining at Craft. The staff was attentive, helpful with excellent suggestions and continually brought food (amouse bouche, small desserts) in addition to the food we ordered. The food was delectable (we shared the dry aged ribeye as the main course) and cooked perfectly. The sides recommended by the staff (wild arugula salad, assorted mushrooms and Bintje potatoes) went well with the ribeye. Highly recommend and will return.

    On a recent trip to LA last weekend, I actually dined at this restaurant TWICE in a row. Friday's meal was so good with friends, I went back to explore the menu a bit more while I waited for my red eye flight home later that evening. I sat at the bar and the food and service was perfect once again. I'll be back...

    If you are a foodie, you must try this place! There were 3 in our party and we each ordered a main entree then ordered several sides for the table and dessert too. Everything was fabulous! They brought us several "tastings" -- various things from the kitchen that we did not order -- all were so yummy! Then they sent us home with complimentary biscotti for the next morning -- very clever and left a lasting impression! I highly recommend this place!

    It was our 4 year anniversary. They called me a couple nights before to confirm and asked for the names of the diners and the occasion. Upon arrival, they presented us with customized menus. We had extra chef's recommendation brought to us to sample free of charge, and we even went home with some gift muffins.

    I scheduled a business meeting with important clients for lunch at Craft. Our table was ready upon our arrival, and we were greeted with courtesy and immediately led to our table. Our server was pleasant, and prompt, and we ordered salads for lunch. Chicken Salad, Calamari salad, and Salmon. For dessert we shared the cinnamon and sugar donuts. Overall the experience was good, pleasant, not spectacular. A bit over priced. We did not have wine or cocktails. I would visit this establishment again.

    Craft is so consistently good, its a shame our dinner on Friday was let down by a side of Broccoli di Cico which was inedible. I am fine with al dente vegetables but the stalks of the broccoli were so tough it was unpleasant trying to eat the dish. It went back to the kitchen but the replacement was no better. However the tomato salad we shared as a starter was simply amazing and the John Dory and Duck entrees were really excellent.

    This was a special Birthday occasion and as corny as it may sound, the menu had 'Happy Birthday Sandy' on the upper left hand corner. The Waiter was exceptionally good at explaining the dishes with 'exotic' names, and he was 'right on' ... the food was served family style which allowed the 6 of us to literally sample the various dishes ordered. It was literally one of the best meals the 6 of us [who have eaten well all over including the European continent] have ever had. NO RUSH and the evening was made even more enjoyable by the great service we had which made the meal and the evening a most memorable one. YES, we will return. Most enjoyable and worth the price which is NOT inexpensive.

    My husband and I have been to Craft a number of times, but not on a regular basis. The thing that has us coming back, besides the great food, is the phenomenal service. From the moment you walk in to the minute you leave, you feel like a valued friend, not just a customer. The service is attentive, but not cloying. The food was great, as usual. I could happily live on the ricotta cavatelli and mashed potatoes. The Dover scallops were the best I've had there to date. The only dish I wasn't thrilled with was the kale salad. A little too salty and not dressed enough. I look forward to our next occasion so we can celebrate with another great meal at Craft.

    The food was good, nothing special, not great. What we had was prepared to perfection but nothing outside the box. Flavors were good but not complex or dynamic. Very true to home style food. Service was wonderful and untouchable. The host... Not as much. Closed off and snubbed us. I have a broken foot, need to wear tennis shoes, I got a look that could kill. Unacceptable, he doesn't know me and IM THE CUSTOMER.
