    The food was delicious and the prices are reasonable. I really liked the menu, it had variety but didn't take an hour to read. The tables are pretty close to one another. We're pretty sociable so we didn't mind having conversations with the nearby customers. The lighting is poor which made it difficult to read the menu. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will bring a flashlight and request to sit on the bar side which is a bit more spacious. I think the side we were on is for the fans of the show. If your celebrating a special occassion, don't expect a complimentary dessert.

    I had an absolute blast at Sur on Wednesday. I've been before but just to the lounge part. The service was beyond exceptional. We had a guy at first named Guillermo and then i believe the (Asian) girl was named Emily who took over. Every few months a group of us girls get together in LA because we have all since moved away from each other. We always like to meet in the middle and try a new place for dinner. This was my first time dining here. The prices were right and the food tasted amazing. Since we only see each other every so often we had asked several of the staff to take pictures since the decor was so pretty and every single person we asked was more than willing and happy to do so! I would recommend any of my friends here!

    Food was awesome! We ordered the same thing (yeah, well we couldn't resist). Filet mignon, yams & brussel sprouts. The meat was a beautiful cut. Mouth watering, very tender and flavorful. The yams were sweet and seasoned perfectl; same with the brussels. We both had the lobster bisque, which was very flavorful and creamy. Will come back and will request the back restaurant area, where the statues are. Very cool place with excellent food!! A must for all.

    Came to SUR for my birthday.We waited in the lounge while our table was getting ready. The server in the lounge told us that if we order a drink in the lounge that our tab could be carried over to the restaurant side. When we got our table we took our drinks and went over to the restaurant side. We told our server about our tab and she said that we couldn't do that and did absolutely nothing to try and figure it out. Because she couldn't be bothered to go talk to the lounge server I had to go back to the lounge,stand around for 15 minutes waiting for the lounge server to close my tab. Also we saw our server a total of 3 times the entire night, incredibly poor service and she was rude and unhelpful. Only saving grace was the amazing food.

    After hearing about SUR from friends. I knew I had to make reservations. Took my fiancé here. The food lived up to the hype and the ambience was spot on. Romantic lighting with just the right touch. Service was alright as the server had her hands full with a large group. Get the blackberry cobbler it melts in your mouth.

    I took my daughter to SUR as a bday treat (we are from Scotland) she loves Lisa and was so excited yet there was no fuss or bday greetings to her and that really disappointed me she is only turning 12 even a sparkler in her dessert would have been nice. Food and drink was lovely tho except my BF asked for A1 sauce for his steak and 30mins later when the waiter returned checking all was ok we reminded him and he admitted he'd forgotten.. That's poor in my book offered to go and get it but my bf's steak was freezing cold by then, simple errors like that shouldn't happen in a restaurant when we spent over $430

    As a Bravo fan, SUR was on the list of places to visit while vacationing in LA. The atmoshpere was lovely but the food and service was mediocre at best. I would recommend visiting for a cocktail but not for dinner. The waiter never came back after food was served to check on our table. Disappointing.

    Obviously a lot of people may frequent SUR due to the fact that it is owned by Lisa Vanderpump and the staff are semi celebrity's, but I need to let you know the food was great! Lets not forget that before Lisa was a celebrity she was (and still is) a restaurateur. The menu had a surprisingly good price point and everyone at our table raved about their dish. I had the blackened chicken, my wife had the Ahi Tuna and our friend had the Chilean Sea Bass. The wine list was good and we went with a Pinot Noir that our waiter, Guiermo, suggested. And running into Ken and Lisa Vanderpump (and that adorable little clothed dog, Giggy) was just an extra bonus.

    The place looked awesome inside. I lived the decor. Valet parking accross the street was $8. Service was very slow. Food was aweful. Tables are crammed too close. Smoking pario was a plus. I wouldn't go back unless they hire. Real chef that only turned out great food. Not worth the drive from irvine.

    The indoor tables were a little to close together. My favorite was the special of the night, sea bass and a kale salad. The crispy chicken breast was average. I would love to go back especially because I was able to take a picture with the owner herself.

    My sister and I were over from the UK and decided to go for dinner at SUR, having viewed the restaurant on UK TV. We were greeted pleasantly and were not rushed to be seated and enjoyed a Kir Royale in the bar. Once seated outside the table was on a slant and very tightly located by the entrance. We were asked whether we wanted bread and were disappointed that this was not warm and was accompanied by packet butter!!! From previous meals out in decent restaurants I would not have expected packet butter, this somewhat cheapen the evening. There was great variety of choice on the menu and the food was tasty. Overall the servers were very friendly and hospitable, nothing was too much trouble, however the bar staff were not as pleasant.

    Too many women diners all hoping for a glimpse of someone famous ( I was entertaining people who do watch the show). Food was only OK and expensive for what it was. The pasta dish was the best tasting food we had. The tables are so close together you can, and people did, enter into conversation with those around you. Decor is 'Hollywood". Staff are all young, and reasonably attentive. i would not go back. I had low expectations and that was about right.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and will definitely return. We really appreciate the hospitality shown to us by the staff, and the generous food portions served. My sea bass dish was the most tender I've ever eaten, and the vegetables were perfectly cooked. I never dreamed a"Big Pinky" could be so satisfying, and blackberry cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream was like a taste of home. Nobody can tell me that southern hospitality is only found in the south, that's for SUR.

    To start with we wanted to eat a late dinner, however on the website only reservation time that showed to be available was 6pm...so we booked it. When we arrived place was completely empty, and was nearly as empty when we left. Food and drinks where expensive(but we expected this) however the food was not that good, a would say average, we all ordered something different no one was unhappy, no one was impressed, all have had better. We really where expecting a busy environment, great food, instead, seems like the place next door was tr hot spot, everyone that drove up and parked went next door. We walked by next door when we left, it was packed, music playing, great vibe...good looked good. I really wish I was writing a better review

Kristina was the perfect server with extensive knowledge of the menu, and very pleasant. The hostess and bartender were also very nice and accommodating. The ambiance was lovely. We made early reservations so that we could take everything in. We are glad we did. We will be back some day.

    I always go to Sur and have the best time and service! The last 2 times have been an epic fail because of poor service from a particular waitress named Tara. It was a Wednesday night and her section was on the patio. It took her 20 minutes just to acknowledge we sat down and another 15 minutes for our soft drinks. She never even brought the complimentary bread. It was supposed to be a special anniversary night and it was ruined because I was upset the whole time! I don't recommend you siting in her section.

    We went on a Wednesday night, early at 6:30. The restaurant was almost empty. Staff graciously let us chose our preferred table because business so slow. Food was very good with good portions. However, the service was spotty at best. We had to look around several times to ask someone for what should have been repeatedly offered: more butter, water fill-ups, dessert menu, even the check. Perhaps the good-looking staff should spend more time concentrating on their customers than on each other and their latest gossip.

    Admittedly, we went to SUR because we were fans of Housewives so expectations were low. First, we went to PUMP down the street for a drink and had the sorriest excuse for a $14 margarita and service that wasn't so much bad as just inept. Clearly at both PUMP and SUR the staff are hired for their looks and not for their ability as servers. Friendly, but not up to standards for fine dining. I had the salmon which was pretty good. Nothing mind blowing but good. My girlfriend ordered the chicken enchiladas. Honestly, you could get better enchiladas at Chili's. All in all, if you're on a mission to see a reality TV star (you probably won't) just get a glass of wine and enjoy the ambiance. Otherwise, the food isn't worth the price tag.

    I made my husband drive out to West Hollywood on our honeymoon trip to go to Sur after a long day travelling because I watch both tele programs. My husband was apprehensive because he doesn't like the program's but he was proved wrong as we had great service, great food and great atmosphere. Fillet mignon was amazing! Great restaurant without being attached to the tele program. We were served by one of the girls id seen on vanderpump rules although not a main cast member and she was very polite and attentive. Would definately reccomend to our friends visiting.

    We came from Australia to visit the Restaurant as a follow on from watching the show. Were were actually surprised at how small the Restaurant was (it appears much bigger on TV). The food was excellent and the service very good. The only disappointment was when we were greeted at the front door and then ushered to a table at the front door. It felt like we didn't even get inside and were sitting on the curbside outside the restaurant, which wasn't enticing. We quickly moved to another table which was much more romantic and then went on to enjoy a pleasurable evening. We would definitely return for another meal.

    We were there for drinks but we wanted a table in case we felt like ordering food. It was a very slow Sunday night around 9pm, but when we asked for a table, the server "suggested" we sit in the lounge since we were only ordering drinks. We felt like we were imposing for asking for a table. We ended up ordering food and a dessert, but when the server heard "only drinks", he disappeared and we had to call down other servers. Otherwise, the restaurant is so pretty and the food was really worthy of the visit.
