Diner Reviews
  • "We came in from New Jersey for our honeymoon expecting to have a big bill.... The service was top notch, waiters were constantly comig over to make sure we had everything we needed and to help us decide what to get. The food Itself came quickly and tasted amazing!!! We ordered all the extras not thinking about the cost so when they came to us with our bill and it was only $98 we took a double check. We thought it would at least be $200. The dessert itself should have cost $35 and they only charged $10. The ribs were mouthwatering, steaks you can drool over. We would defiantly come back again."

  • "Your asian chicken tapas dish should be named a nachos dish. It is not a tapa at all. Don’t make it sound fancier than what it is. I was disappointed that in that. If you wanted to make a tapas dish, use the sourdough bread you have! You already have the ingredients to make a tapas dish, but you use chips."

  • "Service was a bit delayed compared to other experiences at the restaurant. It seems on Friday's the restaurant has few staff on hand."

  • "Waiter did not want to clean table after appetizers. Threw little napkins from the bar for me to clean. Asked if he had a towel to clean. He said "No we don't have a towel, we don't clean that". He was told we had to leave early for movie screening near by. He said it will take 20mins after 1/2 hr it wasn't close to ready. said change of shifts in kitchen."

  • "Spectacular and kosher, too. Very, very accommodating. I'd go again. The spencer steak is amazing. Great for entertaining guests. Everything I've eaten there is good. If you are not dieting, try the choc chip cookie in a small skillet. One area for improvement: they need a kids menu."

  • "I love the food and the service at this restaurant! It's great for date nights and special occasions. It's always a bit crowded so it can get a little bit loud. I guess other people love it as much as I do! Oh and DO have some dessert."

  • "The food is so delicious, especially the meat courses and the appetizers . The Rustic Steak is the yummiest, and so are the different burgers. We love the restaurant so much. The only thing we don't like about the restaurant is that the noise level is extremely high because it is so crowded. But since the good food is so great, there are a lot of people enjoying the food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great kosher restaurant in Los Angeles, California ! The service is wonderful too!!"

  • "Being from a city with no kosher restaurants, my treat when visiting LA is to hit the kosher restaurants. But it's especially nice to go for "white table cloth" dinner that, even if not a kosher restaurant, is exceptionally good! Their menu items are creative and they are nicely presented. We will go again!"
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "The food is very good. It isn't somewhere I'd go all the time because it is pricey, but it's good for special occasions. When there are a lot of people it does get noisy. I thought of it as a quiet romantic place before I went. In the biggest area of the restaurant the tables are a little too close to each other."

  • "Guys, The soup was good but was down hill after that. I ordered the London broil with fries. Th plate had a mound of the fries. They were shoe string fries that you guys buy frozen. They were served lukewarm and tasteless. A bag of chips would have had more flavor. Don't be so lazy and cheap. Peel your own potatoes , Fry them and serve. The steak was tasteless, lukewarm and tough. The beer was NOT cold. Sorry but be happy that I don't go on yelp and announce this. Maybe it was just a bad meat night, Maybe I was really hungry................but patrons don't forget. Heshy"

  • "we arrived on time. the host had a hard time finding our reservations. gave us a table close to the door. when we asked for another table, we were told the others were all reserved. I have reservations I told the host, he goes this is all I can give you. Not even a sorry. Food took 45 minutes to get to the table. They kept giving us bread. I don't want to go to a nice restaurant to eat bread. I can do that at home. The food when it came was good and generous. Just too noisy and too long to get food to the table."
    Dined on 12/8/2013
  • "We were seated at our table a few minutes earlier than our reservation time. We ordered an appetizer and then the traditional Thanksgiving meal, although other options were available.Everything was brought to our table at a comfortable pace. The waiters were attentive. The meal was delicious and the food was plentiful. This might become a new Thanksgiving tradition. Of course, there are no leftovers, but we were so full after the sumptuous meal, we took our (included) dessert home to enjoy."

  • "I ate here a few years ago for the first time I'm still remember the taste of the food in my mouth. It really is one of the best dining experiences that I ever had. When I returned again this week I was not disappointed. The quality and portion size of the food are just amazing. My wife who is a very picky eater loved everything we ordered."
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "I loved the food service again. This happened to be another great meal experienced by myself and associated. Most of them don't even eat Kosher and they had a fantastic time. The Food and service was beyond their expectations and met my lofty ones"

  • "Normally I am not a fan of Kosher food. I find it bland and boring. We went here for lunch with a friend and were pleasantly surprised. The pasta special was nice homemade pasta. Burger had great flavor, and their bread is to die for. Nothing fancy, just good simple food."
