    I went on the last day at this location. Have been here several times over the years & was disappointed to hear they would be closing this location (Beverly Hills). The menu has a huge selection, which never disappoints. Had the meatloaf with kale on the side, delicious! Kudos to all the staff for their years of great service.

    Have come here numerous times over the last couple of decades, so we had to go one last time when we heard they were closing this (original) location. The food was very good as usual, if slightly over-priced, but the atmosphere is good. And if you are a celebrity watcher there is always someone famous eating there.

    It's hard to believe Kate Mantilini will be closing on June 15. For 27 years, this place has had delicious food, excellent service and the best star-gazing anyone could want. Less than 2 blocks from the Motion Picture Academy, Kate's was the go-to place for pre- and post-event meals and gatherings. It's where the famous restaurant scene from HEAT, with Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, was shot. The menu is filled with so many stand-out dishes. The wait staff is supreme -- professional, patient, witty, personable. More times than not, we've ended up shaking the hand of our server before we left. Countless memories have been made at Kate's. We will miss this L.A. dining staple.

    The service was unbelievably good. Food is well prepared and served hot (what a concept). The menu is extensive--definitely lots of choices for everyone in your party. Full bar and good wine list. Best of all, while lively, you can actually talk to your party and hear them as well.

    I had not been here before and did not realize that they have tables that are a bit more private and intimate available by the window. Perhaps none were available when I booked the reservation, but it would be nice to know that possibility exists at this restaurant. Other than that, the food and service we're just fine.

    We were looking for a quick bite in the neighborhood and always drive by this place wanting to go in. So we headed out late Saturday night and got there around 10PM. The place was pretty slow at that point and we had no trouble getting seated. We were quickly served and our food was amazing. I had the fish special which was lightly breaded with spinach and it was perfect. My girlfriend had the Ahi Tuna and it was also perfect. My friend tried the chicken and raved that it was cooked to perfection. My group also thought the drinks were poured perfectly too. I highly recommend Kate Mantelini and we will be back for lunch, brunch and anything else they have going on over there. One more note... the Madmen portraits are outstanding!

    I had requested a booth online, and a booth we were given. Our guests liked the way the the restaurant looked. The host and waitress could not have been nicer. The meal was good, (my short ribs were great.) We brought a birthday cake (I had called first, and asked about their policy.) They served it, candles ablaze, and sang to the birthday boy, then took the cake away to cut it and serve it. Coffee were ordered and came promptly.

    Kate Mantilini is a great place to eat a light meal or a full dinner before you go to the local playhouses in the Beverly Hills or West LA Area. In fact you can go there any night and enjoy it. They accommodate everyone and have a very diverse menu to satisfy everyone including children. They have a nice wine list and a full bar if you are looking for that type of thing also. They are happy to serve parties of two as well as large parties. There were two groups of over eight celebrating birthdays the night I was there. The large parties did not slowdown the kitchen or interfere with the service around them. They knew exactly what to do. I do recommend that you have reservations on Friday and Saturday nights or you could have to wait.

    Food was good. But I had a reservation for four people - the restaurant was only a third full and the hostess refused to seat me until at least one other person from my party arrived. I accepted it at first but then a few minutes later I thought - you've got to be kidding. I reproached and she reluctantly was about to seat me when the other 3 in my party arrived. I get it if they're busy but...really?

    Great for us when we go to a movie at the Music Hall across the street.

Prices aren't cheap, but not out of line either.

    Comfortable place in our neighborhood, we went with an older couple (80s). Comfortable food that was well made. Service was less than the excellent I've had before; I think they had someone new that night. KM is very comfortable, very reassuring, easy to be there, designer diner. I like that the noise is comfortable, we were able to converse easily throughout the evening. LARGE portions, so expect to take home a bag for the next day's lunch. We will be back.
