A Hidden Gem!
I have never understood why this restaurant doesn't do more business. I eat here with regularity and the food and service are great. They have one of the best burgers in town at lunchtime and the three layer crab salad is always a popular choice. If you want well prepared and imaginative food at a reasonable price, this is the place to go.

Gem in a strip mall
Sawtelle can be overwhelming-there are a ton of Asian style places that have interesting food, but 2117 stands out with it's organic fusion of world cuisine. Good prices and they know how to cook pasta!

food is unbelievable!
the ambiance is a bit utilitarian, but the food far surpasses the ambiance.

One of my favorites
This is one of my favorite restaurants on the WestSide. I've been a patron for years, and hope to continue for many more.

Nice restaurant with yummy, imaginative food. Outdoor tables a bit noisy when it's Happy Hour at the place next door, but of course this isn't 2117's fault; the spaces abut.

Outstanding food and value.
One of my favorite places in LA anywhere since they've opened in the late 20th century. The flavors are so varied and distinctive, I just have to keep going back. There's something for every kind of foodie: vegan, meat and potatoes, heart healthy, plain healthy, with the best ingredients obtainable.
My wine group, Society of Bacchus, comes here for all its tastings where Hideyo makes a dinner for 12-16 to accompany the wines we're tasting. We do this 7-9 times a year. Used to do it in the Century Plaza meeting rooms, but made this change for the better.
I love to come to a place where I can always get a reservation no matter how short the notice and get treated so right so often. They're the best!

A Quiet Spot with Elegant Food
If you enjoy sophisticated food and want a quiet place for dinner, 2117 is excellent. Although there's a busy social scene outside, the calm quiet restaurant is a wonderful place for fine dining and easy conversation. The service is low key and it was so nice to sit and chat with friends after our delicious meal.

Extraordinary Service !
This was our first time at 2117. The service was impeccable. Our food was excellent. My wife ordered a pasta that she didn't like (it was a traditional Japanese pasta dish ~ which one would have to acquire a "taste" for). Not the restaurant's fault, at all. The waitress was exceptionally gracious, and the manager was as well - voluntarily taking the charge of our bill. Which was not, at all, necessary, as everything else was delicious. In fact, we will be going back to "explore" the menu some more ! My dish was phenomenal. As was the desert.
I would highly recommend 2117. Go "explore the menu". Have the smoked salmon pasta (incredible) and the banana & chocolate crepe for desert (Incredible as well) !

This restaurant is a gem. It’s not flashy and rather low key. Yet it hides great food and surprising wine treasures; all wrapped up in a simple setting: table paper mat, plastic menu and such but, past the decor, the food is excellent and the dishes, French and Asian for the most part, are full of flavors. Most customers seem to be accustomed to the place and I can easily see why. I shall return!

Interesting food - well prepared
This is an Asian Fusion menu that I always want to go to more often so that I can try more things. I have always been pleased. Their soft shelled crab (when in season) is fab!
