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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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
  • "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
  • "The portions are so tiny that even though the tastes are wonderful, this small eater went home hungry."

  • "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 !"

  • "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!"

  • "This was a special occasion. We sampled a price fixe dinner with choices. I had a slow-cooked short rib as the main course and it was just perfectly done. The wine was an exceptional Zinfandel from the Paso Robles region. Really great!"

  • "My wife and I have been fans since Hatfield's first opened on Beverly blvd, and every time we go it gets BETTER!"

  • "My hubby and I made a last minute decision to ditch our movie plans on Sat night and have a nice dinner instead. I'm so glad we ended up at Hatfields! Every thing we ate was amazing. The steak and fish were both buttery and everything was perfectly seasoned. The details really shown through in the small things, like a sprinkling of course salt on the butter. So often forgotten about.... but not here. And the staff were friendly and charming while maintaining very high standards of service. We will definitely be back!"

  • "The best food in Los Angeles, would be a top one in N. Y. If they chose to open there.. Especially like Karen Hatfield. Friendly, accommodating ... Good positive vibes. "

  • "Terrific service from server & staff; my special request was honored from my OpenTable "special notes" for my friend's 30th birthday. We had a very nice time, and the surprise "Happy Birthday" (banana) cake & port wine was a nice touch at the end...GREAT job. Very satisfied w/experience. The atmosphere was comfortable & cozy, with booth seating which made it romantic. Definitely great for dates and special occasions."

  • "We were a large group and not one of us could do anything but rave about Hatfields. Vegetarians will also not be disappointed with their seriously thoughtful tasting menu. Bravo Hatfields."

  • "Loved everything about Hatfield's. Excellent, creative and beautiful food, attentive service, and cool ambiance. Had the tasting menu with a wine pairing, all delicious. Desserts fabulous, too."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Upon entering the restaurant, you're greeted by an impeccable interior that also has a big window into the kitchen. The lighting and ambience and general setting of the restaurant is outstanding. I would say that all food was 'good', but there was no stand out dish other than the dessert. Other restaurants I have been to in the city have dishes that I still think about eating, however Hatfields does not reach that level. A good meal, reasonably priced, with high quality service. Our evening was sadly spoiled by the fact that one of our guests left her sunglasses on the table after leaving. Despite calling and revisiting the restaurant twice, they are yet to be returned. We were one of the last groups of customers there."

  • "Our experience at Hatfield's for my girlfriend's birthday was out of this world! Upon walking in the door we were immediately impressed by the look and feel of the restaurant. The host staff were extremely courteous and quick to get us to a great table with a superb view of the kitchen (I honestly don't think a bad view exists though!). After being seated the waitstaff did not disappoint in the slightest! Very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable, they truly took our experience to the next level. And as for the food: OUT OF THIS WORLD! Every course was incredible and beyond imagination. Hands down the best meal I've had in SoCal and possibly the best of all time. Thank you Hatfield's! We will be back! "

  • "Highly overrated food and service. We found a hair in the short ribs which were also undercooked. The food took forever to come out and our service was spotty at best. The food is not bad but definitely nothing memorable and especially not for the price. "

  • "Hatfields was an excellent experience for our romantic night out. We were immediately seated and waited upon. The wait staff was courteous and knowledgeable of the menu and options. We were able to order what suited our preferences and combine things that made us happy. The food was phenomenal and was not only tasty, it was sufficient for the entire 2 and half hours we enjoyed the ambiance. "

  • "This is a great restaurant with a very good wine list. The only problem is the noise level is so high it is hard to hear other people at your table. We were there on a Saturday night so that was probably part of the noise factor. I will definitely return but maybe on a week night. Service is good but a little on the slow side, also a Sat. night problem? One of the best short ribs I've ever had. The prices are also fairly reasonable for Los Angeles. $67 prie fixe for 4 courses. I will definitely recommend this place. "

  • "Hatfields is a perfect balance of refined cuisine, impeccable service, and unpretentious comfort. They are serious about making your experience flawless, but they are not stiff or stuffy. Every bite is amazing - its one of the few places I order things I might normally avoid because I know everything will be delicious. Whether you're an LA native or visiting, Hatfields is an essential stop on your LA food tour."
