    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 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.

    This is the second time that we have been to this restaurant and we have been delighted with the food on both occasions. We go to this restaurant to celebrate special occasions as we do not live int the U.S.A. The restaurant is lovely and light which is great when you are eating. There is music in the background but it does not intrude so much that you cannot have a conversation with another person. We would definitely recommend this restaurant, and hopefully we will return soon !

    We went to Spago because it was close to our Hotel. We were not terribly hungry so we decide to order appetizers. As soon as the waiter realized that our items were not going to be huge ticket items he became quite condescending;almost rude. His attitude was fairly transparent. We were not impressed.

    Everything was as expected. A good greeting at the car valet, a quick seating, and an attentive wait-staff. So what's left? The food and wine were wonderful. For round 1, we tried the bowtie pasta with shrimp and the sushi box. Both outstanding. For the main, we tried the yummy veal chop and the yummy fish special together with a yummy brussel sprout side. The dessert was OK but not as memorable.

    During this lunch, once again; Wolfgang made his rounds to the diners to say "hello" & "thank you" for coming. It seems like everytime I am here he has been there to say hello personally to his customers. A very busy man, indeed; but besides the hospitality, the food was delicious as always. I just had a salad for lunch this time, nothing fancy; & they were able to custom make my salad that was not on the menu but something to my liking. The service was impeccable as it always is here.

    MensaFoodReviewVIP
    Dined on 9/17/2014
    The renovated space is fresh and engaging to the mind. The lunchtime light warm and calming. And it is inevitably an interesting crowd gathered at lunch, reveling in Wolfgang's ability to bring together dishes that delight with sublime simplicity. If there is such a thing as world-famous-human-scale, then it is Wolfgang Puck, and he infuses this spirit in his lunchtime creations. While there are Paleo options, you'd be wise not to miss the bread. I had the gazpacho, which was diced into a luxurious texture - not too chunky, not to smooth; I like gazpacho to both slide on my tongue and delicately require my teeth. Next, Jidori Chicken, marinated to produce smoke flavor throughout the meat and mixed with umami mushrooms. Eat there.

    Spago is always fantastic, and it's such an honor to meet Wolfgang puck every time- great personal touch. The food is amazing, especially those just in season white truffles, but it was my extraordinary waitress, Margarite, who is not only incredibly knowledgable of the entire menu but a thoughtful, charming soul. I try to make sure I'm in her section every time as she is somewhat of a perfectionist in dining which I wholehearted relate. Thanks for great food, service, and making me always feel welcome and comfortable.

    The Veal Tartare appetizer was great but when the Salmon arrived it ranged from medium to cold rare. Very poorly cooked. However, the bigger issue we had was with the service. Our server put the "wait" in waiter. I had to ask twice for someone to find our waiter, and that was just the times when we had someone to ask. Very pleasant guy, but clearly made us feel out little two person tourist table was not as important as the bigger, noisier tables over very important patrons. We were also surprised at how noisy it was. Not noisy, loud. We had to lean forward to hear each other.

    We pay the money to go out there, get good service, have a good time. But when you end up paying the top$ and on top of that come back home agonized, then might as well stay home and order in. Our reservation was at 8:45, but we ended up sitting around 9:40. Food was served at 11:00. Horrible, horrible experience. The most annoying fact is that, the servers and the managers think that is quite normal for a 5 star restaurant and if we want to eat there, that's a part of the deal. Save your money. Save your mood and find another place that values you as a customer.

    Spago is as good as a traditional restaurant gets. It is innovative, cutting edge, meticulous -clearly a showcase for what it is possible for an upscale restaurant to be. We enjoy the charming patio where the conversation level is quieter. We have experienced the tasting menu which is wonderful and we have ordered off the menu which offers countless choices of contemporary food. The portions are sized so that while you will enjoy equisite tastes, you will not go away hungry. The wine list is extensive and the cocktail possibilities are impressive. We keep coming back for more and are never disappointed.

    The food is always incredibly well presented and delicious. Usually the wait staff is beyond wonderful, so I would go with that. This time, our waiter lost interest halfway through our lunch, and I had to wave down people to get service. I think our originally good waiter got hung up on a demanding party, or just ignored us because we did not order lots of wine at lunch? Anyway, the second half of our meal was a series of waves to try to find our waiter. This is out of the norm, because usually the attention is exceptional. It was disappointing, because I was doing a special birthday lunch for a friend. The friend loved the food, but not the service, which was too bad. Also, staff confirmed then forgot candle on dessert. Boo hoo.

    On a visit from the East Coast. Had a glass of wine in the bar as service hadn't started in the dining room. Entertaining and engaging bartender! Service from carrying our drinks into the dining room to bringing over a sommelier to help with the extensive wine list and narrow our choices by preference and cost was first class. The food was terrific! Especially enjoyed the filet mignonette tartare. Capped the evening with a visit from Chef Wolfgang Puck who greeted everyone and seemed to enjoy picture taking with his guests. Very reasonable cost considering the location and level of food and service.

    So much hype , so disappointing ; our starters were excellent ; main course steak was over cooked and dry (ordered medium ) ; the service was absolutely awful , we waited 15 minutes until we saw a waiter - than very long waits again to see him subsequently ; to cap it all drinks from another table were mysteriously "transferred in" on our bill - the waiter apologized and corrected this "error " but left a really bad taste. We will not be back.
