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.

    The chef is a genius with blending the taste of foods. Our server was wonderful at recommending a wine choice and advising us about the food we chose. The ambiance was a bit austere and not as welcoming as I prefer.

    We were in LA for 1 night and researched several places to have dinner and chose Hatfields. The restaurant has a nice ambiance but is a bit loud so I was glad we requested a quiet table and were given a spot on the patio. We each got the prix fix. The bottle of wine we wanted they were out of, the sommelier suggested something else unique and it was very good. The service was well executed. Unfortunately all the dishes were woefully under seasoned. We got through the first course without requesting salt but finally had to ask. The salmon had a strange texture - everything was mushy and the roe overpowered the dish. My husband actually couldn't finish it. Dessert was great. For these prices, the food should taste good.

    If you want to discover what it takes to get a Michelin star Hatfield's is a great place to start. The food and service is consistent with any one star restaurant in Europe. This was my wife and self's second visit and it did not disappoint. We both cook so when we eat out it has to be different and excellent. The only negative was the background music was a little too high for our liking but that can be excused after tasting the food, which is the only reason you would want to be there. We recommend that on a first visit go with the "Prix Fixe" so you get to taste at least four items off the Menu in addition to the "amuse de bouche"

    Aftger a horrendous day for both of us, my wife said "I need a great dinner, quiet enough to talk, white tabelcloths, and pampering" She ten said Hatfields. We have been there many times. We got a 7:30 reservation and was please to see the restaurant mostly full. We had an intelligent waiter, and I usually order the lamb dish with all kinds of lovely accompanments. My wife ordered loup de mer and a pasta appetizer. You see Chefs bustling in the kitchen to make sure your dishes are perfect. We call it civilized dining

    Imaginative menu. Excellent implementation. Waitstaff that actually seem to like their jobs. Great selection of wine by the glass (or bottle) . If you prefer quiet ask for a table on the enclosed patio. The vegetarian prix fixe menu is superb and I am not even a vegetarian! Worth the sticker shock.

    Hatfield's lived up to its Michelin Star. The food and service we superb. The braised octopus appetizer and grilled pork belly entrée were top notch as were the mosaic baby beet salad and the pan roasted striped bass that my wife had.

    We dined at Hatfield's early on a Friday evening (6:30) The restaurant was pretty empty at that time but full when we left. The food was very nice with some interesting combinations. Especially enjoyed the Croque Madame and the Lamb with dates and mint. Had a new to us wine which was delightful. Staff attentive, helpful and friendly.

    We had a fantastic evening celebrating an anniversary here. We ordered the 4 course seasonal prix fixe menu (incl. dessert), but asked to add something from the a la carte menu onto the beginning: the "Croque Madam," which we shared. Although the rest of the meal was excellent as well, that was the best thing we had all night. I highly recommend trying it! Another fun fact is that there is a credit card commercial airing featuring chef Curtis Stone at an "Italian" restaurant. But if you look closely, he's actually inside Hatfield's.

    For what we ate - duck, lamb, short ribs, hangar steak - it could have been very rich and fatty, but it was actually quite light. Delicious! Braised octopus to start and also the Croque Madame" which is actually sashimi, prosciutto and toast with a quail egg (fantastic.) then, the aforementioned mains - hangar steak was really soft. Dunno how they did that. To finish, strawberry shortcake and caramel bavarois. Quiet atmosphere, couteous service and a wine list with variety if not comprehensive.

    This was our first visit to Hatfield's and it definitely won't be the last. Service was gracious, knowledgable, not rushed. We had the mezzaluna pasta starter with beets. Loved the flavor. Octopus starter was delicious, too. My main was a perfectly cooked lupe de mer, husband had hangar steak/short rib, which he inhaled. Dessert was a fun beignet with chocolate sauce for dipping with a tiny malted milkshake served in an espresso cup. Our server introduced us to a lovely dessert wine, a macvin du Jura, which was just the right flavor with the sweets. We were there for my husband's birthday, and hatfield's made it a very special occasion, topped off with homemade malomars!!! Must go back again to try more of the menu!

    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.

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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
