    I had a terrible time at Sur restaurant. Basically from the moment I arrived the experience was less than. While I waited for the rest of my party of 8 to arrive I had a drink at the bar. The bartender was arrogant and when my party did arrive I waited about 30 minutes to be seated after the host/ hostess said my table was already ready. Finally arriving at the table for 8 there was a chair missing which I had to ask the host for twice, the person who served water once and the waitress about 3 times before getting an additional chair. The server was terrible seemingly drunk or high took forever to get food, waited for two additional entrees. I stated it was my birthday several times and received no acknowledgement. Terrible experience.

    Not only was the atmosphere visually dynamic and an eclectic mix, the overall experience was amazing. The menu had an odd combination of foods, which oddly paired well with one another allowing something for everyone in my table for 4, hard to please crowd. Peter served us (I believe he is the Manager) and he was entertaining to talk to! Food came out very quick from the kitchen, as if they knew what we were ordering before we did! Great restaurant in WeHo!

    Dined on 9/23/2014
    Being in LA for only a couple of days, we decided to do a bit of celeb dining and go to Sur to see what was happening. We were with our 10 year old so had to book a relatively early dining hour (6.45pm) and I think this may have accounted for the relatively slow/lack lustre atmosphere. The waiter who served us was lovely but we expected a real buzz and it didn't happen. The food was nice, but not amazing and definitely not euro gourmet. Of interest was the fact that the servers were very much into their gossip session until the co-owner Nathalie appeared, and then they started to move around the restaurant. Overall it was OK but it definitely didn't live up to my expectations, shame I was really excited.

    We were holidaying internationally and booked at Sur months in advance for a special meal before leaving for home. We could only secure an early booking (6:30pm) We arrived early and were given the option of being seated immediately to dine or to go to the adjoining lounge (which we chose to do). The lounge was great with a good variety of cocktails (my choice), wine and whiskeys (husbands choice), our drinks arrived promptly and were delicious. For dinner we were attended by a lovely man (Gabriel) Food was delicious and quick to come out, meal sizes were substantial for the price point. Lisa and Ken arrived & were very obliging for guests who wanted a quick snap with them (and Giggy!) Would definitely go back!

    We traveled to LA from Minnesota for a business conference and SUR was recommended by a friend. The atmosphere was both energetic and refined with gorgeous decor, beautiful and friendly staff and a vast menu. The sea bass was exceptional--seared perfectly and literally melted in my mouth. The Ahi tuna was also delicious and flavor-forward. The staff took the time out of their busy evenings to chat and take photos with us, making it a truly memorable night. Looking forward to returning someday and will recommend SUR to friends, family and business acquaintances. Thank you for the amazing meal and ambiance!!

  • Sur driver charges triple taxi fare
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    Sorry to say not worth the money. We asked the waiter to order us a taxi we were told the driver would take us no mention we would be charged. It cost us $30.00 to get there by taxi and $90.00 for the return trip. Overpriced and overrated it cost us $170 for two main meals one dessert and two beers. The main was tiny one small piece of fish one flat mushroom and a few artichoke hearts. The dessert crepes with fruit was nothing special. No bread was offered. Lisa and Ken were there not very friendly people don't like their fans. Definitely would not bother to return.

    Dined on 9/19/2014
    We booked Sur months ago (from Australia) as my daughter is a fan of the TV show. Our taxi dropped us off outside the Sur Lounge entrance and they had our booking so we eat there, only realising as we were leaving, that the actual Sur restaurant (as featured in the TV show) was next door. Felt disappointed, as no one told us that we should have/ could have been next door which looked lovely. The Sur lounge is quite nice and low key but does feel a bit of an afterthought, and now I can see why. Great service, ok food and $40 for a souvenir t-shirt (!). Paid over $200 at Mozza last night - same amount, but 100% better food and ambience. Really wanted to like Sur more, but feel disappointed.

    Came here on a whim after taking in a photo exhibit at PDC. Three of us each ordered an entree and split a bottle of wine. Waiter was kind enough to let us try a few before choosing. I had the skirt steak (or maybe it was flank?) which was cooked properly, along with spinach and brussel sprouts. Everything tasted pretty good, but the brussels were pretty bland/not my favorite. Overall it was a good experience, however because of the reality show it felt really cheesy to be dining there, and for $50 pp I could think of several others places I would've preferred to have dined at.

    I didn't go here for a long time thinking it'd be overpriced and mediocre cuz its on a reality show and they don't have to try hard. I was way wrong. Though I had more and enjoyed it all.... IF YOU GO THERE JUST FOR THE SPA COOLER COCKTAIL AND THE CHOPPED ARUGLA SALAD YOU'LL LEAVE VERY HAPPY! For any warm day here in LA.... they are the perfect combination. They're both in the top 3 best salad and cocktail I've ever had! And of course the decor is tres chic just like Lisa!

    The table behind us ( my chair bumped up to another chair at their table) was a group of 6-8. They were celebrating a birthday and the person sitting directly behind me was hollering at the top of her lungs the whole time. The profanities and the F bombs were over the top. All I wanted to do was leave. It was annoying. The waitress said the had already asked them to calm down but obviously that didn't work. Once we were don they offered to move us to another seat.....but we were done. Couldn't stand one more minute of the noise.

We got there a little before dark , they lite candles all around us, rose petals on table with fresh flowers. When we left the lighting of Sur's was so pretty. We sat out on covered patio. After sun went down they tied back curtains to street which was neat. Everyone was so friendly . I highly recommend this restaurant .

    An amazing dining experience in a gorgeous setting. My party of 5 enjoyed the best calamari with chipotle mayonnaise to start, followed by steak, chicken piccata, roasted chicken, pork chops and bacon wrapped meatloaf (I'll be copying this at home) along with a wonderful selection of sides. Didn't order desserts as we opted for chocolate martinis instead. Service was friendly and attentive. Will definitely return again when back in town!

    Sur had a super romantic feel to it and is perfect for date night. Food was ok, nothing special. Very friendly waitress and the manager Peter was also super friendly. The bartenders were kinda douchy. I would of gave 4 stars but the food was a disappointment. It was pretty much pasta with jarred sauce and my friends pasta had so many olives in it that's all she could taste. I would go here again but would def order something different.

    I enjoyed my experience overall, however my friends and I have travelled from England and we felt rushed throughout our evening. I didn't particularly like the service as we were left with just water to drink and had to call someone over to order. The food was lovely, although our server began clearing our table before we had all finished our meal. We felt rushed and did not stay to have a drink at the bar due to the service we had received during dinner and there was no attempt at a conversation of friendly chit chat by staff.

    What a terrific experience we had at Sur Restaurant. We are from Florida and have had bisque's often, but none could compare to the lobster bisque at Sur. My husband raved about the spinach soup as well. Our entire dinner was excellent and affordable. The restaurant was beautiful and elegant. Upon our arrival, our rental car was hit in the public parking lot behind Sur. Not being from California, we were lost in regards to the laws and how to handle it. The staff took it upon themselves to comfort and aid us in our situation. They called the police, gave names for witnesses and kept my company while my husband made frequent trips outside to look for the police's arrival. Lovely restaurant and top notch staff.
