Wonderful food, wonderful drinks, and a wonderful, fun place where the booths provide a nice degree of seclusion. My fiancee and I usually pair our favorite dish, the macaroni and cheese, with another (in this case, vegetable risotto and pepperoni pizza; we were a party of four). We haven't tried anything on the menu, but we've been here three or four times and such is our esteem of the place that we suspect that it's all reliably good. That said, we're sticking with macaroni and cheese and mojitos as our usual.

Another great meal
It has been a while since we've been to Luna Park, but it was another great meal!

Great neighborhood place
The hostess is always good about offering one of the much desired booths.The food is always delicious. A manager always comes by to say "hi". The service sometimes slacks. I usually go in late so maybe that has something to do with that. The happy hour is a great value. Just don't order an espresso martini as your second drink (yuck).

Very Nice Brunch!
Luna Park put on a nice Mothers Day Brunch. Food was very good as was service. Restaurant is consistently good. Environment is good for casual dining with or without kids.

Great place! Food, ambiance, and service were all fantastic! My favorite drink was the Kick A** Mai Tai.

Love this place
Food and service was perfect. Love the fact that the booths are private and block some of noise when restaurant is packed.

Brunch was great
Food was great, and their famous Smores dessert was awesome. They bring melted chocolate with a little sterno can heating it, and same for melted marshmallow cream. Then a number of graham crackers, and you assemble your own Smores. Indulgent, decadent, awesome.

90 year old treated like a queen
We celebrated a relative's 90th birthday at Luna Park. I barely mentioned it in making the reservation---just that we may need to change from a booth to a table if she was uncomfortable. Everyone at Luna Park went out of their way to make this a joyous event---starting with the valet parker. I think every employee at some point wished her a happy birthday. Our waitress was excited and honored to be waiting on us. The kitchen prepared an omelette to our guest's specifications that wasn't on the menu. We were later surprised with birthday cake and ice cream. And I was stunned that our guest's entire meal was comped. Luna Park did everything right. We will be back.

Great New Management
We have always loved Luna Park, but the updated decor and upgraded menu is truly fabulous! We couldn't stop talking about the food. It's just wonderful!

New Owner - Still Great!
My partner and I go to this place 4-5x a year, and during this last visit we met the new owner (and his wife) who was very "hands on" and comped us desert which was very nice. The food here is always great as is the service. They had a "surf and turf" special that was delicious. And they have some of the best mojitos in LA.
Seems like the place is not as busy as it once was, but hopefully the new owner has some tricks up his capable sleeves to fill the place in the future.

A charming, funky place. Very dark on the inside, neat booths, and good food.

What a lovely place!
I thoroughly enjoyed my anniversary dinner here. We got a nice booth with romantic lighting. Although there was some pleasant music and people around, I felt like we were the only ones there.
The food is DELICIOUS. I had the Oven Baked Mac N' Cheese and had the Risotto in the past. Both were great. I've also highly recommend the Fried Apple Pies and New York Cheesecake. Their desserts are some of the best I've had. They put a sparkler in our dessert this time, which was a nice touch.

Really good local place with some of the best service in town and really unique and delicious menu.

Enticed by Their DIne LA Menu
Dine LA always gives us a reason to try new places outside of our area. Their ingredients were quite fresh, prepared with lovely spices that makes me want to recreate the dishes at home. We thoroughly enjoyed each bite from the Ahi Poke to gooey rich some more. Portion size was perfect.

DineLA for Lunch
This spot was great. Went there with a group of 7 for lunch during dinela and had no problem with reservations. The DineLA menu offered plenty of food. The goat cheese and apple/crostini fondu was delicious. I also had the mac-n-cheese with broccoli and the deserts were great. The smores were delicious. I highly recommend for lunch. The staff was very friendly.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have been enjoying Luna Park for years. Great burger....and even better salmon!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Atmosphere, drinks & food
We enjoyed our visit very much especially when considering the Dine LA prices.
We were seated in a booth and it was awesome with our own chandelier and privacy.

Food, service, staff was wonderful.
Food, service, staff was wonderful. Very warm and friendly atmosphere. Valet parking is a must. Great place to go before the theater or after an event since located in Mid-Wilshire. Menu is very foodie friendly. Great prices, great quality. You will not be disappointed.

Reliable and festive
Reliable for good food and fun ambience. My favorite dishes are the rock shrimp pizza, roasted cauliflower appetizer, roasted salmon and flourless chocolate cake. We had a wonderful Pinot Grigio from Argentina and the mixed drinks were great too. Service was very attentive and the overall evening for our group of five felt festive and very satisfying.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
great first experience
The libations were festive, the main dishes were aggressively traded between members of our party. And then... a happy ending of "Make your own So-mores"?!!
Good times will be paid forward to others. Thanks!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Luna Park was great before, but with its new ownership, the quaint dining spot has become superb! There is great detail to the food, so appealing...and the ambiance is truly outstanding. Our entire family loves this restaurant and has made it a regular spot for our family gatherings. Thank you to the wonderful owners and fantastic servers. We love them all!

Still going strong
This restaurant has been going for a while now, we went when it first opened and drop in once in a while. We would go more often if we lived closer, it's not our neighborhood. Got a last minute reservation easily enough for 7.30 on a Saturday, but the place was pretty full by the time we left. Three of us split a pizza with Brie for an appetizer. Two of us had their steak frites and the third the short ribs. All were delicious and we mourned the lack of room for dessert. One of the best meals of our lives? No, but the kind of quality we would be happy to get the rest of the time. In fact we decided we needed to start using the place more often. Good wines by the glass too.

Luna Park always delivers
We had dinner there on Saturday night -- six of us -- before heading out to the theatre for an 8:00 pm show. Everything was perfect. The wait staff was very attentive and cognizant of our theatre deadline and the food was terrific. We all ordered the prix fixe menu option and everyone was genuinely pleased with the food. We had a variety of things and we all tasted and everything was great. Corkage was reasonable and it made for a great night.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friend and I always have a night out at Luna Park at least every two months, and we celebrate birthdays and other special events that have happened recently. Although the menu has a wide variety we rarely deviate from our favorites for both food and drink. Our last visit was yet another pleasant experience. When I am in the San Francisco Bay area on business I also make a point of visiting the Luna Park in the Mission District.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
If I sound like I'm hyping this place up too much, then I did my job. Living in L.A for years and even working nearby Luna Park, I would never think about giving it a shot, as the outside doesn't even give a taste of what's on the inside of this place. This restaurant was just perfect for my diet as I have been trying to go more vegan and or just healthier choices. The kale salad Was on point, Vegan pizza was light and flavorful and That pesto dip sauce that comes with starter bread was Ridiculous! Everyone just needs to stop reading And go try!!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We actually ate pretty quickly because we had to get to a show, but the service was really fast and our food came out so fast. The food was really good, the drinks were good and service was great. Next time I'd spend more time there.

Peter is the perfect host!
Was celebrating a friend's birthday. Dropped off a small cake ahead of dinner and was met by Peter, the owner. He told me the cake would be presented under a large "fake cake" with sparklers and candles. When I returned later with my friend, Peter gave us a great booth. Erica was our superb server. The menu was complete, the food came quickly and was fantastic! When the fake cake arrived it WAS huge. The sparklers seemed to light up the entire restaurant. My friend was delighted and a bit confused since it was just the two of us. He blew out the candles and when Erica lifted the fake cake to reveal the smaller one, my friend burst into laughter. It was a wonderful highlight of a truly excellent dining experience! We'll be back for sure. 5*s

Staff is Perfect
I went to Luna Park for brunch and it was the perfect choice. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. They run like a well oiled machine and I like that. Everyone said hi and shared their name. The food was delicious (bourbon french toast? I died!) and came quickly. I decided to attack the bottomless mimosas, so I didn't get to sample the cocktails, but they looked fabulous and the bartender obviously takes care with his craft (I bartend, so I watched carefully). I'll definitely be back for more (and to try the custom drinks)!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food~romantic gem
The lighting and decor make this spot a great place to o for romantic dinners or even a girls night. The food is always amazing and speciality cocktails are delicious!

Great Mid-Wilshire Spot
Relaxed Atmosphere, good food, and a great place to grab a drink.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
LOVE THIS NEIGHBORHOOD GEM
Luna Park has new ownership and has transformed this wonderful place into the best neighborhood restaurant around. It's been upgraded beautifully with an artsy feel. Furthermore, the food is even better than before. There is so much to offer and not the usual fare. It's creative and absolutely delicious! The owner and staff have definitely elevated this restaurant to a MUST!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
As good as I remember
It's been some time, since I have been to Luna Park. I fell in love with one of their winter dishes, the Chicken with Roasted Butternut Squash, Brussels Sprouts and Hazelnuts, oh so good. Apparently the restaurant is under new ownership, a husband and wife Maria and Peter, who made you feel right at home. Not only is the food fantastic but the service is by far much better. If you are looking for some delish cocktails, they definitley have a great variety of unique drinks, and make one of the best mojitos in town, not to mention your drink comes with a cute little animal cocktail charms. No surprise, I got a donkey while my friend got a monkey. If you can request a booth, it definitely mkes your dining experience all the better.

If you can get one of the curtained booths you can have a very intimate dining experience. The staff is also very accommodating. When the valet is unavallable (before 5 pm) you can park in the alley across from Jack n the Box.

Why haven't I been here before?
This is a great spot in a wonderful part of the city. I wish I would have known about it sooner.

I'm not a vegetarian but the menu selections were so good I had two dishes fit for veggies.

Luna Park is SO GREAT!
It's not very often when you find a fun place to dine that is consistently FABULOUS! Luna Park is just so fun with a wonderful menu that changes seasonally. Try the creme brulee for dessert. It's the best I've had. The entrees are varied and have tremendous and unique flavors. This place is well worth it. Our family recently had a birthday celebration, and again, Luna Park makes it so much fun! Thanks to the wonderful owners and staff!
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
Had a great time, meal and drinks at Luna Park-LA, and we will certainly return!! Great restaurant to enjoy before going to a show at the El Rey Theatre and very close walking distance.

Night out with friends
A few friends and I wanted to meet up before Halloween and Luna Park was perfect. They accommodated our group size, took our drink orders immediately, the food was fantastic and they even split the check for us since we were such a large group.
Everything was fantastic.

I had a great time here for my birthday. They were very welcoming and was able to accommodate a 16 person reservation on a Thursday night. The staff was really nice and would always come back to make sure we were having a great evening. The food was also very good. I had the gnocchi as a starter and it was flavorful and filling without being greasy and heavy. For the entree, I had the pork cutlet stuffed with mushrooms. It was really good, I enjoyed the cutlet, but didn't really care for the cranberry sauce. The Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream was rich and creamy. I would definitely come back for dinner and maybe have a round at the bar.

Luna Park is just always great! The food is comforting and delish! The staff is extremely friendly and always makes you feel at home! You can't leave without the goat cheese fondue - and a MOJITO!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service!
My husband and I went to Luna Park to celebrate our anniversary and had a great time! We were seated in a booth and were given two glasses of complimentary champagne after we paid our bill. The service was quick and the food was delicious. The entrees can be a bit expensive, so we got the burger, mac and cheese, and a small bowl of red sangria to share. Everything was excellent! We will definitely come here again!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
this was my first brunch there. i loved it! i got the chiliquilles and they were yummy! can't beat the $15 bottomless mimosas either :)

Great little place
Luna Park never disappoints. Fine dining it is not, but if you and your spouse want a nice dinner that won't break the bank, this is it. The owner is super attentive and overall service is great. Definitely a favorite of ours.

You saved my thanksgiving!
Thank you for the great food. Only suggestion, have an alternate choice for dessert, not everyone loves pumpkin pie.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
I've lived in LA for almost four years now and have probably passed by this place a bazillion (yes, bazillion) times. I went in there as a last resort for bottomless mimosas and I was completely blown away. The food was beyond excellent -- short rib hash and bourbon cinnamon French toast. Our server was super friendly and hooked it up with the drinks at every turn. Besides the good food and stellar service, the place is pretty cool on the inside (20+ ceiling and private both cabanas) and they even had TV's for Sunday football.
All in all, 5 out of 5 stars. Yes, I will go back there, and YES, you should too!
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful dinner with family after my daughter passed The Bar. Loved the food and the service. Wonderful all around! I would definitely recommend Luna Park to others, and I can guarantee that I will be back for more.
