Great food, rude and bad service
I think we had bad luck with our waiter. For our table of 5, 3 of us were a few minutes early for our reservation, and 2 of us were a few minutes late. We were seated, but the waiter refused to get us an appetizer until everyone was there. We were starving by then, and letting us share a salad or two would not have changed the time we were at the table at all. Once the food really did start arriving, it was well worth the wait, but the waiter continued to be weird and inattentive.

Food was fresh, local, seasonal
Food was fresh, local, seasonal and delicious! Service was extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant space is cool and has a pretty patio in the back.

Happy AXE came back after the fire!
Flush with a new menu and more Silicon Beach and foodie types, Axe is back better than ever.

Very healthy food that is perfect for vegetarians or non vegetarians alike. Delicious "bowls".... Lunch, brunch or dinner, I have never be disappointed. Their deserts are great too!

Great food, noisy on weekends
If you're concerned about noise, go on a weeknight, not a weekend. The food was delicious and mostly locally sourced. I would recommend getting as many sides or salads as you can, especially in the summer. Good attentive service without intruding.

always a pleasure
we came here for my boyfriends birthday. 11 of us. we could not have been more pleased with the family style choices (if you're a group of 11 or more, it's a limited menu served family style) & our attentive and sweet server jen. we were still talking about it the next day.

More European than usual
Everything is casually special- which is to say everything seems to be done with care, but it is not pretentious. Thoroughly enjoyable.

getting too trendy
Axe has become way discovered and the clientele has changed; older, richer, less bohemian. but still great. great natural sourced food excellently prepared. had the polenta with morels, yum and the lamb chip with gremolatta (sp?) yum. had a lovely italian white wine by the glass and a generous pour.
axe is excellent

I ate brunch on Sunday with friends from Portland, dinner on Wednesday with my LA foodie friend, and dinner (again) on Friday with friends living in Seattle and New York. It would be an understatement for me to say that I "like" AXE. It's truly one of my favorites.

healthy and very sophisticated, hip
Food is excellent. Very healthy, tasteful, and very sophisticated. Very good range of offerings. Outside seating very nice. Inside it is a too noisy for me. Service is good. Always go back there when in town.

Good food, small portion,high price
There were 6 of us and every single one of our choices was great from a taste stand point. t. My only complaint: when a standard dish costs more than $25 it CAN NOT be sample sized. I would've liked to see the dishes that cost more than $20 be bigger in size, or less expensive. Otherwise everything was fabulous; service, ambience and food.

Been going for years. Last night was exceptionably friendly with just the right amount of attention from waiter and bus-boys.

Service was great...the food was spectacular! Started with the crab salad, must try the goat stew, and finished with this brownie mess which was to die for!

i was the service had been as tasty
as the food. the food rocks, which is why i picked this place for my husband's birthday gathering. healthy, tasty, inspired food. that's not the problem. but here it is...i booked this a week in advance and was very clear i had 10 people in my party. all adults. the table they sat us at was just too small and when i mentioned it to the wait staff, they seemed uninterested in doing anything about it. that was a drag and could have been corrected. not only that, but there is a great outdoor area which i asked about on the phone and they didn't suggest it, but it would have been more festive and comfortable. so, my suggestion - this place is great for two or four. for a bigger group, insist on outside or a bigger table.
