Diner Reviews
  • "We stay quite often at Sofitel hotels around the world. And, we know that the food is always good. We had lunch at Esterel as we needed to be in the area around that time. The menu was fun and had a nice variety of things to chose from. And, the items we chose were delicious! The restaurant is very avant garde in design. Sadly, on a Monday, very few people were there to enjoy the restaurant. We would go back and hopefully others do, too."

  • "The restaurant is beautiful (reminded me of the Aria in Las Vegas) and the service fantastic. Our party of seven went during DineLA, and they were so accommodating. They put us in our own dining room (the dining table was also beautiful). However, the consensus around most of the table was that the food was a bit underwhelming, even for the DineLA price. A friend ordered off the 30-minute lunch "regular" menu, but the portion sizes were extremely small. Overall, the food was not as flavorful as we expected - for the dollar value, there is better food out there."

  • "Went with a friend for lunch / Dine LA. $20 bought a lovely 3 course lunch. Our server was very friendly, cheerful and accommodating."

  • "My finance and I happened to be in the area during lunch on Friday, and realized we had not tried yet one DineLA restaurant during the entire two weeks it's been going. So...we purveyed the DineLA website, looked over a few choices and menus, and decided on Estérel . What a surprising find, and in all the good ways. The location is inside the Sofitel, and the ambiance is very exquisite. We both felt we were not 'dressed up' enough for the hotel, and didn't expect such a high-class feel. The restaurant itself was comfortable, and welcoming. As for the food, and the DineLA menu, overall I was happy. Most of the items ran a bit on the 'tiny' side, but fortunately packed a lot of flavor. Service overall was attentive, and helpful."

  • "it's dineLA time so we decided to give esterel a try. Our experience wasn't horrible but probably won't come back for more. The food was okay. Nothing really stands out. The waiters were super nice but a bit scattered. They made a mistake with my friend's order 3 times. And no one seems to know which one is the correct dish ( there were some confusion about butternut squash soup and pumpkin soup ) Overall, it's an okay experience but probably won't pay a full price to dine there."

  • "We were late for our 2pm reservation. They stopped serving Dine LA at 230pm. But they will still serve regular lunch. We tried their 30 minute lunch. It was good. Small serving of 4 courses like bento box style. We were full though at the end. Their bread needs to be changed. We didn't care much for it. Romano was our waiter. He was good."

  • "The food portions were a great size (not too big) and the plates were all picture perfect (and delicious!)."

  • "This place was not impressive. We are foodies and did Dine LA and the service was sub par and the food was nothing to call home about. We will not return as there were not many tables in the dining room, and having been a server, we should have received top notch service, yet more than once the server ignored us and walked by us, failing to check on us. First time at this Restaurant for Dine LA and no thanks to returning. Disappointing."

  • "The place and food were perfect. The staff was friendly and my group of ten close friends all loved it."

  • "Perhaps one of the most disappointing restaurant meals I have ever had. Not one redeeming quality to the food. Dessert was clearly some prepackaged Sysco product (that didn't stop them from charging an outrageous mark up), chicken was dry and accompanied by some horrible over cooked gnocci, don't even get me started on the app. - tuna "carpaccio" more like tuna goo with garlic powder sprinkled on it (why???). In case you still want to go get ready to pay at least three times retail for the mediocre wine selection."
