  • The smell

    It was our first time eating at the restaurant. We thought the service was wonderful and the food was great however, there was this awful smell that almost ruined our first experience. The smell came at random times, so I don't know if it was coming from the kitchen and they were boiling eggs. We sat outside, but there was a weird smell in the bathroom also, the egg smell followed us when we were standing outside of the restaurant when we were trying to say our goodbyes. I do not know that if the restaurant can fix the smell, but it is possible please do. That is all that we remember, was the awful smell.

    Having just moved from NY to LA, I've been checking out/comparing the food scene here. So far I'm unimpressed with the plethora of "me too" small plate restaurants that leave me feeling like I've had a stylish (but ultimately unsatisfying) food binge rather than a meal. That's why I was so delighted to discover Littlefork. Despite offering yet another "little dish" menu, every item we ordered was spectacular. It's the first restaurant (among the likes of AOC, Animal, Republique, Osteria Mozza, etc.) to which I plan to return soon. The lobster pasta and heirloom tomato salad were especially memorable, prices are reasonable, and there is even wiggle room between tables so you can breathe deeply, relax, and enjoy the dining experience fully.

    I've been to Littlefork many times but this evening was particularly pleasant, as I was able to catch up with a good friend over a delicious meal. We were seated out on the terrace, which was ideal as we had a lot of talking to do. Service and food were excellent, as usual.

    Friendly service and clean, open design, which was nice on a hot summer evening. The menu had a lot cool-looking dishes, but the food itself could have been a bit better. For example, the pork belly was mostly a thick strip of fat that was too tough to even chew, let alone swallow. The pickled eggs, polenta, maple eggs, short ribs and chicken mousse were tasty individually, but they add a lot of sugar, which made everything kind of taste the same. I ordered a vodka & grapefruit but asked if the bartender could jazz it up with a splash of something extra for fun, and the waiter said no... which I thought was odd for a place that has a trendy artisan cocktail menu. Not terrible, but we probably won't make a special point of going back.

    Second time in a week. Some things were very good (halibut, toasts, duck poutine, steak tartare) and others were just ok (lobster roll- mayonnaise?, mussels- tiny). The old fashion cocktail is great! Servers ok but try too hard and cliche..... Relaxed would be better. Need much better coffee!

    Our group of 5 started at the bar for oyster hour and enjoyed a cocktail and their famous maple eggs and a dozen oysters ($18)! We then moved to the dining room for dinner. Excellent service - delicious small plates, east coast inspired- highlights: moules, brisket with coffee mustard, Malbec oysters, corn salad, and we ordered all four dessets on the menu and were delighted.

    The food and drinks were great, and the menu was innovative, sophisticated but still approachable. However, the staff seemed to be scrambling around a bit as they were out of quite a few things on the menu and apparently were understaffed. I'd love to go back...hopefully next time they'll be on their A game because Little Fork seems like a great neighborhood spot. The Hasty Pudding was delicious!

    Went with a friend for dinner. Had the oysters, chicken liver mousse, sun chokes, halibut, and the duck confit. Everything was delicious! We tried a few of their cocktails for which they apparently are well known for. The drinks were alright but I found them to be a little more novelty than life-changing. The ambiance was romantic on the outdoor patio. We went on a Wednesday night and it wasn't too busy.

    Littlefork opened in my neighborhood a little while ago and I have been dying to try it. DineLA week brought about the perfect opportunity. We went on Friday night were surprised to so easily both get and change our reservations. The service seemed to be running a bit slow, in fact, even our waiter apologized and said he did not understand why our food took so long (especially since the table next to us already had their second courses and we had been there since their predecessors were eating dessert). That being said, the food was all worth the wait and all the waitstaff was incredibly friendly (with the exception of the ditzy, too-busy-texting-to-be-bothered hostess), whom never did return to light our candle. Would return for sure!

    We've been here a ton of times and the food is outstanding, however, the service is very hit or miss. Our evening started out great, our server was very friendly and went over the menu. Once we ordered our food & drinks, everything went downhill. We got our first two courses within 10-15mins, but didn't get the rest until 45mins later (after having to tell a food runner that we wanted to cancel our order and get the check if the food was not being prepared). Our sever finally showed up and told us the kitchen was backed up because "they have to cook food everyone's order". Totally unacceptable. What made it even worse is our server didn't check in with us once since we ordered while the couple next were getting the full royalty treatment.

    Ordered Scotch flight to drink explaining I did NOT want anything with a "peaty" taste. Manger brought flight with one of them being peaty!! He then gave ME attitude that it was not peaty. Ugh. He begrudgingly brought me another flight. One was STILL peaty. Seriously!!! He Never came over to apologize NOR did they comp my wine. Oh Well. Brussell Sprouts Great!! Maple egg thing so so. Steak,fatty. Brisket though it had a great taste was fatty. Duck was dry with strange presentation, the body w/o wings & legs, in the middle of plate, by itself. The pickled beets they give you were Very good. It's nice & close to the Pantages Theatre, where we were headed but honestly, no desire to go back. Bonus - our waiter was Really great.

    I was not expecting very much walking into a non descript concrete building in the middle of Hollywood, but once I walked in . . . WOW! The design a bit whimsical and the menu just as fun. The food was delicious. Our table share each plate and did not have one bad dish. The stand outs were the brussel sprouts, the chicken live and their homemade brisket. There is a great cocktail menu to kick it all off.

    I'm a regular customer who sometimes dines alone--which was the case on July 5th. I wouldn't say I was ignored, but despite the fact that the restaurant was half-full the service wasn't great. The weirdest part was ordering a margarita and getting something dark that tasted like bourbon. The waitress said I had been given a "classic daiquiri," but I know what's in those, and rum never tastes like bourbon. She did switch my order to wine--I wasn't taking any chances with the bartender. The food--6 oysters and the grilled chicken--was very good, but at $52 for the meal (and a single glass of wine), overpriced.

I have celiac and he made an effort bring me some delicious raspberries and chocolate so that I could have something to eat during the dessert portion of the meal. So appreciated!! The ambiance was beautiful and the food amazing. I'll definitely be suggesting Little Fork to my friends as well as come back often myself!

The $12 add-on for bottomless mimosa to the entree is a great deal and this restaurant is ideal for a brunch of a couple or larger group of friends. If you go on Sunday, you can walk a block over and go through the Farmer's Market.

    I brought an aunt and uncle visiting from out of town here. When we first walked in and I heard the music piped in I thought I may have been a little ambitious about the level of noise and general hipness that my midwestern relatives were prepared to accommodate. My concerns were unfounded though, as the hostess seated us in a relatively calm enclosed patio, the waiter walked us through the menu of excellent, shareable small plates, and checked back with us several times to clear plates and make sure everything was okay. Both salads (an asparagus and a kale) were delicious, and I wish we had ordered about four more helpings of the beef brisket. In fact, everything we tried was well above average. I would recommend it to just about anyone

    I've wanted to try this place for a while, and walked in to a fabulous looking bar, one that you'd want to hang out in for a while. I was excited to try the food, but it turned out to be just "so what". Too bad. The poutine came last, *after* steak and duck! and it was just way too late and way too heavy. Didn't try dessert. :(
