Diner Reviews
  • "The soft shell crab is outstanding! I want to return and work my way through the menu."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "They deserve a lot of points for creativity. Best soft shell crab and sea bass. Great starters such as calamari and crab cakes. Blend of ingredients has a fusion aspect to it that actually works and leaves you wanting more."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I was dying for soft-shell crab. The best I ever had! The tuna tartar and the crab cakes were amazing. This is my new favorite restaurant. I will be going back a few more times before soft-shell crabs are out of season. They said they would have until Aug. Service was excellent! I would pass on the desserts.."

  • "Somehow I'd missed going to 2117, but I'll be sure to return. The menu is so intriguing that my friend and I can't wait to return and eat our way through it."

  • "I have been going to this restaurant for several years & we noticed that the food was definitely not up to par. I had a steak salad and the dressing was so sharp it was hard to swallow. we were 5 people and we all felt the food had slipped. So sorry...nice people."

  • "This little gem is flying under the radar. Lost in a sea of ramen shops. Underrated on Zagat and Yelp. Fabulous food and lovely staff. Run, don't walk..."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "A nice restaurant. Very pleasant service. Will go back for sure!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We are repeat "eaters" at 2117 - our favorite non-named restaurant. It has very little ambiance, but the food is terrific. The menu is small, but very consistent in quality. Our favorite is meat loaf, but such meat loaf made with Wagyu beef. I'm really not sure what it is or its connection/comparison with Kobe beef, but it is FABULOUS. In short, 2117 is a small place having a big way with food."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "When we and friends visited on an ideal Friday night, the restaurant was uncrowded and quiet. Food was great and service attentive. The restaurant is in a busy strip mall, surrounded by other mostly Japanese-style restaurants. The ambiance is modest; they have a small patio in front that was also uncrowded."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Restaurant 2117 was a hidden gem in a strip mall on this busy section of Sawtelle. Parking was by valet--thank goodness. Ambiance is not fancy! But the food was great. We had hamachi that was like butter, a "traditional" salad given an asian twist I would never have thought of, and the Shrimp entree was excellent, as was the sea bass. Service was unobtrusive and vigilant. I can't wait to go back."

  • "Never knew this place existed and unfortunately I couldn't get the details to questions I asked answered by the waitress. Went for Dine LA; good menu, food was delicious, sea bass especially (with a pang of conscience -- is this the endangered sea bass?). Vegan butternut squash soup definitely tasted of the squash and not overpowering ingredients or spices. Dessert was also good. Service wasn't the world's best -- there weren't so many people in the place that more attention couldn't have been paid. I do appreciate having my water refilled without having to ask. I got the feeling the place was not new but that the staff was. Also a disconnect: is this a bistro or an asian specialty restaurant. Overall B++."

  • "I am often in the area and was mislead by the crepe sign in front. To find a place such as this is a boon. Food was amazing with simple flair and bold flavors. Wine list took me back to northern France. The servers were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. I had the PorkBelly my guest had the pasta I strongly recommend giving the opportunity for them to serve you. ."

  • "We just love to go to 2117. We have been dining here since it opened. The food is refined and creative. There is something on the menu for everyone's tastes. Each item is prepared with quality ingredients and the presentation is awesome. All of this and you can chat, show up in jeans and have free valet parking."

  • "When meeting friends who you want to actually see and hear this is a great place to go. The food never disappoints - it is creative and delicious, fresh and healthy. You can have both great food and wonderful relaxed conversation."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "I always have trouble deciding what I want to eat - An old favorite or something new - everything always looks so good and I am happy to report - it tastes good too."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Restaurant 2117 has stood the test of time. I went there several years ago, and it's still great. The Asian/fusion influenced menu is very creative but not too wild. My friend and I both chose the $40 Prix Fixe meal. We both enjoyed the sashimi appetizer. I chose the Duck and my friend the fish selection. Desserts were also very good, and Restaurant 2117 has a good wine list. Service is quiet and understated - but attentive. I can hardly wait to go back and try some of the pasta entrees."

  • "Had a wonderful dinner with 3 friends. Food was excellent. Had a lovely prix fix meal with hamachi app, lobster tail and noodle main and pecan pie for $40. good value, nice wine list. Small charming place"

  • "I've been eating here for years. It always satisfies."
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "Five of us decided to try this on a "whim". Whimsey aside, it turned out to be an excellent, well-priced little place in the heart of Sawtelle's burgeoning restaurant row. Excellent food -- all the first courses won acclaim, and my meat loaf was surprisingly well done and one friend's pasta was delightful with a subtle oriental touch. The wine list is short and very well priced, but with well selected choices. We'll definitely return!"
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "The quality of the food isn't what it once was, but this is still a nice restaurant with a good date-ambiance. They still do a great soft shell crab, when it's in season, but the rest of the menu (and I feel I've tried a good portion of it) is just a little flat. Good, but not great."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "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!"
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Lots of activity at all the other restaurants nearby, but we were only patrons during our entire meal. Now we know why. Nothing was bad. Ingredients seemed fresh and of decent quality. But it simply did not come together. Although a completely different cuisine, 2117 reminds me of dining in Croatia where the farm/sea to table foods are always fresh and of good quality but making them interesting is simply a skill not yet developed."
    Dined on 10/23/2013
  • "Nice enough people but the food was very confused. Salmon had soy sauce and pesto with ratatouille. Weird. Wine list by the bottle is descent but by the glass is terrible."
    Dined on 10/5/2013
  • "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!"
    Dined on 9/28/2013
  • "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) !"
    Dined on 9/1/2013
  • "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."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 8/14/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/26/2013
  • "We chose the restaurant for dine LA. My branzino fish dish was $3 extra, looking uninspired, and not worth it...one small piece of fish on top of a bok choy. The other three in our party, however, were happy with the soft shell crab and the steak plate, both of which came well presented with nice sides."
    Dined on 7/19/2013
  • "This is one of my favorite restaurants on the WestSide. I've been a patron for years, and hope to continue for many more."
    Dined on 6/15/2013
  • "Our second time here. The food continues to be very good, but the visit was marred by several service gaffes, all having to do with the fact that our waitress couldn't understand English very well. She got the wine order wrong. Twice. Failed to bring the dishes in the order requested. Put the wrong item in a take-out container. And just disappeared two-thirds of the way through our stay. This meal was tasty (especially the bolognese, which is top-notch!), but it will probably be a while before we bother going back."

  • "the ambiance is a bit utilitarian, but the food far surpasses the ambiance."

  • "Everything on the menu prepared and presented with aplomb.."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 5/17/2013
  • "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."

  • "We had the mexican shrimp and the duck. The food was average, not bad, not great. Prices are a little high for the quality of the food. Service is great."

  • "Always reliably good for an elegant meal at reasonable prices."
