  • Great food, but service suffered
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 11/18/2014
    The chef's tasting menu was a delight, however I was less than impressed with the service. We were left waiting a few times for wine pairings to arrive after the courses had been served, and sat around drumming our fingers for a long time at the end of the meal waiting for our server to check on us or just bring the bill. I've read other recent reviews online from some people complaining of the same thing. To sum up: the food is outstanding, but the service is not as attentive as one would expect from this type of establishment.

    This place lives up to it's reputation. Very friendly, professional, unpretentious service and superb food. It's worth a trip to L.A. just to dine there - it's that good! Also, I happen to follow a vegan diet, which they accommodated without advance notice, and it was excellent!

    Went to Spago's for the first time for a 60th birthday celebration! Our group of six loved and devoured everything we ordered (veal chop, lobster risotto, jidori chicken, agnolotti with Italian chestnut, pasta with lamb ragu, Chinese eggplant with black bean sauce, mille feuille dessert) and the service was superb -- friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, did not rush us (our guest of honor's flight was delayed and arrived nearly an hour late).

    My husband and I celebrated my birthday at Spago this weekend. It couldn't've been more exquisite. The service was flawless, the patio lovely, and the food and drinks unsurpassed. We opted for a variety of appetizers and sides as our meal, which allowed us to taste many contrasts. All excellent. We shall be back.

    Everything was phenomenal. Amazing how all of Wolfgang Puck's places, but Spago in particular, remain relevant. Despite changing trends, they still find fantastic combinations and flavors. We had incredible halibut and sole as well as really great lobster pasta dish as a mid-course. Cocktails were flawless. Dessert options were less than usual, but the passionfruit pudding cake, or whatever it was we had, was light and wonderful. Service was tremendous; never were wanting for anything, and all questions were answered along the way.

  • Disappointing truffles
    ChrisfoodsVIP
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    Ordered truffles to be added onto my pasta for a large but appropriate price. The restaurant did not shave the truffle table side. So I was able to see the truffle itself. The truffles actually did not taste fresh or really have much flavor. I almost felt like the were prepackaged or from a can. Very disappointed

    Our server "Emily" kept trying to rush us and seemed generally unhappy to be there. We would have had a lovely lunch but she spoiled it. The rest of the staff was good and the hostesses in particular were very nice. I may try it again but at very high end restaurants the service is part of the atmosphere and it was lacking!

    We have dined in Spagos a number of times while staying in Beverly Hills. It has not changed much since our last visit in 2013. The restaurant and service were good but the biggest thing was very mediocre food which we have never experienced at Spagos before. Maybe just an off night in the kitchen, but not what you would expect from this restaurant.

    This was our first time here, so maybe we hit an off night. Overall, it did not meet our expectations. If you go, recommend going outside of the busy hours, as it was very noisy with the dinner crowd. The wine list is extensive, so that was a plus. The initial service was pretty good, but after our order was taken it slowed down. I know each waiter has a support team, and ours did not seem to be working together very well. The food was decent, but for the price and hype, we have had much better. Your mileage may vary, but I would be reluctant to return, mainly on the food experience.

    I've lived in Los Angeles for nearly twenty years, and never gotten a chance to visit the legendary Spago -- glad we finally did, it was one of the most fun dining experiences I've had. We came in expecting snooty waiters and stiff ambiance, it was very relaxed, the wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was wonderful.

    I am not a foodie of any sorts, however my girlfriend and I decided to dine at this famous restaurant for lunch. We were promptly seated at a very nice table on the patio (per our request). The atmosphere was very nice. Since we were the first ones to be seated, it was very quiet. When all the other tables were seated, the acoustics were very nice. We were not subjected to hearing other people's conversations, a very pleasant experience. The service from every employee was impeccable. The manager was the nicest guy and checked on us to make sure we were happy, and we were! The food was exquisite and an experience like no other. The manager treated us to an unexpected desert which turned out to be heavenly. 5 stars on all counts!!!

    I am from Florida and come to LA on business several times a year. I had always meant to go to Spago, but somehow I didn't get there until recently. It is a new favorite and I will be back! Every staff member was exceptional, from the pleasant hostess to our server who was extremely professional, but still let her personality show. The food is the real showstopper. I had the Gnocchi with Veal Ragu and it was so rich and comforting. Then I had the Prime New York Strip for my main...cooked to perfect medium rare and melted in my mouth! The potato/bacon side on the steak was impressive as well. Also, I couldn't say no to the fresh baked bread being passed tableside....classy and delish! I will be back as soon as I can!

    Loved everything at this modern temple of culinary arts. Don't miss the spicy tuna hand rolls, in their amazing miso-sesame wrapper. Venetian sepia with lobster stuffing was outstanding, as was the apple souffle for dessert. Every dish was beautifully made and presented. Service was formal and attentive without being standoffish or condescending. A great experience for a lot of money.

    Interesting menu. Butternut Squash Soup was Divine. Pumpkin Agnolotti was a Delightful Surprise. The Pommes Aligot was Killer. Each dish was constructed around a specific theme, taking you on a journey to a unique part of the world. Travis, our waiter, and company, provided the perfect balance of service; there when we needed him without hovering. This was a great way to celebrate 4 Birthdays at once.

    The food was very, very good. The place is beautiful and famous and the staff are extremely courteous. It is a thrill to be there. I did not care for the hazelnut dessert and I did not think the sauces were the best I had ever tasted, which, frankly, I had expected. We had to ask three times for a second soda. I guess I was slightly disappointed with the food, given the reputation and price. However, everyone should go once in their lives.

    Disappointing dinning experience with a price tag of $300. Appetizers were ok, but nothing was outstanding. The entries were very mediocre. Ordered a $50 venison dish which was just a piece of fried battered meat, dry and bland. The other roasted chicken dish was also disappointing, packaged grill chicken at whole food can beat it.

    For a $200 lunch, I expect exceptional service and outstanding food. My food was tasty but unoriginal and uninspired while my guests' lunch was downright not good. Their tiny pieces of lobster were chewy and flavorless and one of the people in our party had to wait an extra 10 minutes for her food because our server had misinformed her about her sandwich so she had to send it back and have it remade. Service was painfully slow and filled with misinformation. I'll never return.

    We had made reservation for a table for two at the outdoor patio for a Thursday night. The restaurant was full, but the service was still excellent. We wanted to try the tasting menu that we had heard much about, but unfortunately was told that it was "sold out" when we arrived (at 7.30 PM). They only sell around 12 of these menus each night - at least that is what we were told. But our waiter suggested to create his "own" tasting menu for us, where he divided some of their best sellers on two plates. That way we received 5 courses each, and the food was excellent. Our favorite was the filet mignon tartar. We chose to buy wine by the glass, since they had an excellent wine list and choice of wines offered by glass was the best we have seen.

    We arrived 20 Minutes early @ Spago. Therefore we had to wait in the bar area. No one asked about drinks for 5-6 Minutes, then we had to wait for the bar menu for some time too. Finally we ordered, our drinks needed 20 minutes to prepare - they were served at our table finally. The restaurant was fully booked, it was very loud with a sort of restless, stressy touch. The tables are set very narrow, the staff has troubles serving and getting around the tables not hitting a guest. Menu is very nice - very international, leaves no wishes open. Prizes are fair. Wine list detto. The food itself is really fantastic. All in all: Spago is (Wolfgang Puck's) business and chic, that's why it works with too little (partly unfriendly) staff.
