A word from Hatfields
Quinn Hatfield's deft touch in the kitchen shines through on his short but dead-on, market-fresh menu. Appetizers are playful: Fabulously fleshy charred octopus is offset by a citrus-candied orange rind, and an updated croque madame features fresh hamachi, along with proscuitto, quail egg and out-of-this-world brioche. Main courses are uniformly excellent, be it juicy pan-roasted seabass, meaty duck breast that eats like a steak, and luscious, mint-crusted rack of lamb. For desserts, Karen Hatfield outdoes herself with the molten-centered house specialty chocolate peanut butter truffle cake, which is worth every decadent calorie its name promises. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I happened to dine on a surprisingly slow Sunday evening, so the room felt a bit lonely. It was nonetheless lovely and the food very good. I had the vegetarian tasting menu which was relatively simple but tasty and beautiful in presentation. The staff was as gracious as could be. Kudos"

  • "Went to Hatfields based on its reputation and the fact that it had a Michelin Star. I will say we were sadly disappointed. I consider myself a foodie but I want to say that I am not a food snob by any means. Interesting small menu but the real problem was execution and flavor. Many of the dishes we had lacked flavor and many items just plain overcooked. Dinner fell flat, however, service was good."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "We had a good meal. But this is a restaurant with a Michelin star. We were expecting to be wowed, and we weren't. The menu seems outdated compared to some of the culinary gems that are sprouting up around LA."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "We started with the Heirloom tomato and watermelon salad which was great. We then had the the Croquet Madam which was outstanding. The slow cooked Loup de Mer was absolutely awesome along with the pan roasted Duck Breast which was very tender and had great flavor. Timothy was our waiter and was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about the menu and extremely friendly. Overall this was a phenomenal experience."

  • "We try the seasonal prix fixe. The appetizer is so so. But we all like the 36 hour slow cook short rib. It is very tasty and tender. Also the steak is very great."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The food was outstanding and the waiter we had was excellent! It was my first time going to Hatfields and they definitely left an impression. I look forward to going back soon."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Food was phenomenal. The flavors were fantastic. The scottish sockeye salmon from their seasonal prie fixe tasted like sashimi. The braised short ribs melts in your mouth. The only complaint I have is that the entire meal took two hours for four courses. There was a solid 30 minute break between dishes, which is less than ideal. Other then that, I would be excited to come here again!"

  • "Have been going to Hatfields for years and it is still exceptional. Your core three are all taken care of (food, service and ambience)."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Great Food! Great service! We could all hear each other talk! Wonderful menu! 4th visit and it's still my favorite restaurant. It NEVER disappoints"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Fabulous! Dinner was an artistic experience with amazing and wonderful flavors! I especially recommend the scallops! Also, an amuse with Meyers lemon and prawns was served which was to die for! If you have never experienced hand crafted buttermilk ice cream, try the Pain Perdue. Once I tried it, I was in love! Just a heads up---you cannot experience the Chefs tasting menu unless at least two of you order it, which doesn't work if one of you is a vegetarian. They do have a vegetarian tasting menu, however."

  • "We were seated in their patio area, not the main dinning room. While it was quieter in this area, no air conditioner = uncomfortable! I ordered the Vegetarian Prix Fixe and my fiancé ordered the Croque Madame and the Pan Seared Diver Scallop as his entree. For the $59 that is charged for the Vegetarian Prix Fixe, I should have been wowed. Of the items that were served, the least flavorful was the Pan Roasted Carrots. My fiancé loved the appetizer and enjoyed the scallops, but why did he only receive three of them? He ordered it as an entree and should have gotten an "entree", not the "tasting" size. We did not stay for dessert. We were underwhelmed. Service was truly outstanding, and the epitome of professional and courteous."

  • "Simply amazing. Went here to experience our first Michelin Star Restaurant and it did not disappoint. Food was amazing."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Food, service, noise level, privacy all of it is perfect. We went to Hatfields three years ago and loved it and it was as good or better the second time."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Hatfield's continues to please in every way. The prix fixe menu is a good option to enjoy four courses without stuffing yourself."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Food was average. Duck wasn't that great. Everything as gas as taste was a 3"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We went to Hatfield's on a sunday evening. We arrived at 20:30 and we were the latest guests. The restaurant is very nice with plenty of space. The restaurant wasn't fully booked and after a while it became more and more empty. We chose the prix fixe menu and started with a cocktail. The sashimi was just delicious, the octopus my wife took was good, but nothing special. The second course, the salmon, was very good again. For the main dish we were going for the duck breast, again a good dish but nothing special. The service was good, but everything went a little to quick, so we hadn't the time to really enjoy everything. So we had a good evening and ate delicious food, but it wasn't a wow experience."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The food is delicate, complex, and absolutely divine. we have been here a few times now, and always order something different. we have oohed and aahed with every dish. the environment is open and comfortable and we were actually able to talk to each other without yelling. the noise level is quiet enough to enjoy the delicious food and have a conversation without yelling. what a joy! the staff was perfect in every way and the servers and service couldn't be better."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Everyone was so friendly. The food was delicious. The wine pairing was right on for dinner. Very enjoyable."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Knowing we had 75 minutes before we needed to leave, the staff was fantastic in providing for our dining needs with care, information, a friendly (not familiar), cheerful level of service that was exceeded by the exceptional food and velvety wine. The appetizers, the entrees were excellent; the warm cheese bread and butter (heavenly); the dessert, that buttermilk ice-cream, baked strawberry, cinnamon toast combo was splendid! Bravo!!!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Great in all areas. Best dinner in a long time. The service was great and the open kitchen very entertaining."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "My wife and I came to Hattfields for our second time. This time, we brought two friends who are very knowledgeable about fine foods/dining. We sprung for the most expensive Prix Fixe on the menu. All I can say is that it was worth EVERY penny. Absolutely wonderful experience of sight, smell, and taste. I'll remember the meal for years to come."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food was excellent and the wine pairing made the experience extra special. The salmon and scallops were my favorite."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "During the entire dinner, no one asked how the dish was, did we need anything, and half the time we poured our own wine. If this were Denny's--no problem... but at a restaurant of this caliber it is inexcusable. Food -grilled octopus was delicious but only included 2 small pieces. Ordered the lamb chops medium rare but they arrived medium. Duck breast entree portion- small appetizer at best & unimpressive. Most outstanding part of dinner was the bread--fabulous. With all of the rave reviews, I was absolutely floored with the consistently poor service throughout the meal and combined with the lack luster quality of some dishes, it was too disappointing to return with only the suggestion that a manager would offer an extra bite or two."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Polite attentive staff upon arrival. Open kitchen captures your attention with monochromatic decor and subdued lighting makes a great first impression. The menu provided a diverse selection of seasonal dishes via tasting or a la carte. Prices were reasonable and the menu/wine list followed a minimalist approach focusing on quality vs quantity. The dishes were delicious and well presented. The service was a bit slow for the basics even though the restaurant wasn't very crowded. Overall very good but lacked the wow factor."

  • "We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and wanted to go somewhere very special. This restaurant exceeded our expectations on every level. It was a perfect evening."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Everything was worth savoring...I will definitely return and recommend it to friends for date night. All the ladies were dressed up and it felt like a special Saturday night date night!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We have dined several times at Hatfields and on each occasion the food has been superb. The service is impeccable and friendly without being intrusive. The restaurant layout and lighting contribute to a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. The cocktails are innovative and tasty. Without a doubt this is one of the top restaurants in Los Angeles."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The whole evening was wonderful from the service to the atmosphere to the food and drink. While expensive, it was worth it for such a special evening."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The food left me in a meditative state. With every attention to the small pungent details, this place is a definite go to for an excellent meal."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Hatfield's is a truly special restaurant. It puts out some of the best savory and sweet courses in the city. Their contemporary take on Croque Madame delivers all the greatness of that classic French recipe while being something completely different at the same time. The braised beef short rib is juicy and soft, but it is also very steak-like in its presentation. The pain perdu has a canele-like crust--a rich, crunchy caramelized shell. Combine the great food with a beautiful dining room (which includes a glass enclosed kitchen that was featured in the movie Chef) and you have one of the best restaurants in Southern California."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I'm bi-coastal btwn NY and LA, in a specialty food industry, so not easily pleased with food, fortunately or unfortunately. My fiancee and I were surprisingly pleased at Hatfields. Food was excellent except a couple of minor misses here and there. The atmosphere was very LA in a good sense. Spacious, natural, low light, high cieling, relaxing.. You cannot have it in NY. The service was excellent. Paul K, our server had good knowledge of food and wine, quick to respond, provide just enough info for us and leave us alone, and he did so with, quiet yet presented, passion. Price was reasonable, dessert was wonderful and the portions were just perfect, too."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Absolutely amazing each and everytime I've been to Hatfield's! I bring people here just to watch their faces as they take their first bites! The food is impeccable"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The portions are so tiny that even though the tastes are wonderful, this small eater went home hungry."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The food and service are excellent! They serve pre-fixe menu that is just perfect! I had a great time!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The tasting menu was excellent, but I found myself wishing that some of the courses were not quite so rich. The seafood courses were very well done and the 36 hour slow cooked short rib was one of my favorite items. I will definitely be back."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Food was inventive, decorative and delicious. I thought it was good value for money for what we were getting. The ambience is abit casual I thought for the presentation of the food. Overall though a very good experience. I would have given the restaurant 5 stars but I had just come back from NYC where we had incredible food in incredible places and unfortunately while Hatfields was very good, it wasn't as excellent as what I'd experienced in NYC's finest restaurants."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Had a great time at Hatfields. There were four of us, 2 people did the prefixe and got everything so we could all try, a 3rd person got the vegetarian prefixe, and the 4th mixed matched from the menu and in total we had a ton of great food to try. Everything was fantastic and the service is always impeccable, such a breath of fresh air with the service. So many places lack it."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My husband and I came here recently for our 22nd wedding anniversary dinner. We have been many times and have always been delighted with the food and service. I don't eat meat and it is wonderful to be able to have such delicious vegetarian choices in such an upscale setting. My husband is obsessed with the Croque Madame appetizer and has it every time. I recommend giving the cocktails a try as they are fantastic and a bit unusual. Service is always gracious and unintrusive. But most importantly, make sure you leave room for dessert as all of them are really special although the beignets are my favorite!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Great ambience great table(booth) the food was to die for and the service was surpassed only by the wine list if in LA you must make the effort you won't be dissapointed !"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We decided to go to Hatfield's before a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, primarily because it is a family name and also because of the great reviews. This restaurant certainly lives up to its reputation! The neighborhood it is in is sketchy at best, but once you enter the doors, none of that really matters! The food is impeccably prepared with such flavor combinations that you cannot help but smile. The meal was incredible but the dessert was over the top. We will definitely return again and again!"
