Diner Reviews
  • "The Food is excellent. Innovative and great. The waiters are average and try to push sales which I don't like. Like most of the so called inn places they overheat and get sloppy. High price for an average food experience."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "had a great night, except we had to wait an hour for our reservation (9:30 seating for an 8:30 reservation). the restaurant succeeded in compensating with additional tapas (their choice not ours, but very good nonetheless)."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "What's the point of a reservation if you arrived and checked in 15 minutes early, was told to wait at the bar, sat for an hour without any service, and finally after numerous complaints and watching people who arrived after us getting free champagne and getting seated before us, we got 8 dishes that in no way represent good Spanish food (having dined in Barcelona and Valencia for years). If you don't know the hosts personally or eat here regularly, you're in for a long wait for absolutely mediocre food."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Entertained visiting foodie San Franciscans with dinner at The Bazaar. Hadn't been in a year and hoped the place was still a stellar experience. It was. Couldn't have been better, my guests raved about it (and they don't do that easily) and this on a Saturday night no less, it was crowded, of course, but we were never rushed. I never write reviews but this experience merited it. Paulie, Los Angeles"

  • "This was the most amazing dining experience of my life. The drinks were magical, the food innovative and delicious and the atmosphere fun. We started out with a nitrogen-frozen drink, a cotton candy drink and a smoke and fire drink and it only got better from there. Just when we thought the experience could not improve and we asked for dessert menus, we were escorted to our new table in the "dessert room" in which we were told to peruse the candy county and make our selections. It was expense and loud but it was a perfect fit for a special night out. The service, which in restaurants like this could be snooty or pretentious, was wonderfully attentive. Our server answered all of our (copious) questions with humor and made us feel welcome."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Incredible food. Highly recommend the shrimp paella, philly cheese steak, squash soup, and the salad with liquid mozzarella. Caviar cone was great but I think I'd rather put my $9 towards a more substantial dish. I think you could get by with 2 dishes per person, we did 3-4 per person and were fairly full - definitely depends on the dishes you get though. Service was great, though they were a little pushy at times trying to oversell. For instance, we insisted on only one bottle of sparkling water, but they continued to bring new bottles and charged us for each. And twice when ordering the waiter "strongly recommended" we get more dishes. For someone who has never had tapas before, I can see why you would want that though."

  • "I came here last week to celebrate a friend's birthday in a group of 8. We arrived a little late for our reservation and lost our table, but they were able to seat us at another table on the patio. The service was great for the most part, and the server did a good job spacing out the food so that they didn't all arrive at the same time. The food was amazing, but all came in very tiny portions! So, be prepared to spend a lot of money if you're looking to leave this place full. Each small plate was around $10, with some going up to $20 or $30. They were all only a few bites worth of food, but incredibly flavorful bites. The drinks were good as well, but the cocktails were also pricey at $17 each. Recommend for special occasions."

  • "Good food, nice ambience, but servers more interested in turning the table over than making it a culinary experience to savor!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Excellent service Food a tad better than average Far too costly Wine list (Spanish) very good though far in excess of 2 1/2 times cost Clientele seemed overly anxious to adopt a Eurotrash personna"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The food was very good. I felt that the portions were very small and the prices are very high. We left there still hungry."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This is the third time I've dined here and everything was great until it was dessert time. The server accidentally knocked over the tea pot (french press). Luckily we were far enough that it just splashed a little on our legs. I hope the server is ok care he got a direct hit on his leg. The staff was very apologetic offering us first aid and gave us a 10% discount for the trouble. I still rate this place one of the best restaurants in LA."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Greatest experience I have ever had at a restaurant"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Amazing food. Somewhat overpriced, but some of their signatures are out of this world. Try the yellowtail, and try the philly cheesesteak! The dessert with the brioche ice cream, and the one with olive oil ice cream and grapefruit were phenomenal. Service was fantastic."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Genius food, so inventive and excellent use of molecular gastronomy. Loved everything! A group of 3 or 4 is perfect because most plates have 3-4 servings."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My friends and I went there to celebrate 4 birthdays together and we had so much fun! The food was fantastic and it was a true dining experience. We all loved it!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Went with coworkers, had a blast. Food was fantastic, service was superb!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "What an experience. Great food...caprese, guacamole wrapped in hicama, beef cheek and philly cheese steak OH MY! I will definitely be going back...again and again and again. OH and did I mention the cocktails? Salt Air Margarita and Jasmine Pomegranate Margarita deeeelcious! Service was good, ambience very cool but the food is what I'll be going back for!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "If you want to relax at dinner this restaurant is not for you. The food was good. The server was sweet. After waiting extended time for the bottle of wine we ordered she finally stopped by our table to inform us her sommelier was "trying to find the bottle of wine" we ordered. The food was served one plate at a time, even though my husband and I ordered our own separate choices. The 'music' was loud and agitating. It was an experience, but not a dining experience my husband or I would recommend to a friend."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Wonderful traditional tapas combined with an assortment of modern "molecular gastronomy" tapas. A fun place to order and share, that's for sure. Top-notch cocktails made by true professionals. And higher touches are service that don't go unnoticed. A great place even for solo or business travelers. Sit at the dining counter and watch the chefs in action!"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "The food was outstanding. I recommend coming with a crowd so that you can try as many things as possible. With my group of 4 we were thrilled to taste so many delicious things. Service was mediocre at the bar, where it seemed the bartenders were more interested in their own gossip than service. I would skip having a drink at the bar and save room for elsewhere. I am not a fan of them holding your card through different areas of the restaurant. They took our card at the bar and carried it through to the dining room and patisserie. At the end of the meal they had lost our card - which put a huge damper on an otherwise lovely evening. It was finally found after 20 minutes of searching. Do not allow them to take your credit card!"

  • "Being completely ordinary looking women from Louisiana we were very apprehensive about how we could have been treated at such a high end celebrity hot spot, we were dead wrong! From the beautiful hostesses and our adorable waitress, we were treated just as special as we would imagine Julia Roberts would be! Beyond that, the food was phenomenal and a one of a kind experience for these small town girls! we ordered too many dishes to name all of them, but its safe to say the rabbit, quail, and caviar cones were at the very top of our list. We were in no way rushed to get through our choices and were treated with such respect when we asked to split the check. And icing on the cake was when we spotted 4 celebrities at valet!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food is awesome. (my favorite: pan con tomate with jamon, philly cheesesteak!!! tortillas and the famous hot mousse chocolate!!!) The service & the decoration were great. It's definitely one of my favorite restaurant in beverly hills!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This was our second visit. We asked in advance for a quiet, private table and were accommodated. Our server, Ofi, was excellent. She was very attentive despite having several other tables, made excellent recommendations for food and drinks, and asked how we wanted the meal paced, and it was served exactly as requested. Her busboy was also very efficient and attentive. He brought clean plates and utensils between courses, and promptly cleared our plates when we were finished. Our server for dessert was also very helpful, and even sent us to a great place for brunch the next day. This was a 5-star experience."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Was very impressed w/ the food. Pleasantly surprised that they granted my request to sit away from the middle of the room. Everything we tasted on the menu was fantastic w/ the exeption of the cauliflower couscous. Not tasty at all. Should probably take it off the menu. Really enjoyed the wagu beef cheeks, scallops, & chicken wings."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "A fun cocktail - Nitrogen frozen or cotton candy; New Olives and a molecular twist on Caprese Salad. And never forget the Philly Cheese Steak. Plus too may other things to mention. Order 6-8 course per person and you wont get to the dessert salon - which is a shame. A fun place if you have out of town guests or just plain love interesting food."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "In line with other Jose Andres spots like mini-bar this place rocks. From the innovative food presentation to just great flavors in the standard dishes as well. Oh it's pricy but worth it. The whole desert room idea is really great as well because you can lounge a bit more in a great art display type area. the back room Saam is fantastic as well and more intimate. This place is great and I try to stop in when I'm in LA."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Wonderful experience . . . yes, it's pricey -- but you're paying for the entire experience, and they deliver. Tashia, our server was friendly, happy, but also let me and my better half have our 'moments' while we tasted a variety of fun! The small plates are flavor explosions, not meals unto themselves. Don't go if you like big portions, good 'value', or prefer to simply overconsume. But if you appreciate a refined experience, boy do they deliver. Thanks!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "A great experience! The cocktails were amazing, lots of small one bite dishes with tremendous flavor. A bit pricey($750 + tip for 4 of us)...But we never really felt full. Don't go hungry :-)"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Love hate place. Must be willing to experience new food. Know you may not like everything but it's only two bites. Good for group of 4 or 6 people"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Took 3 people, including one who is difficult to impress and has nitrogen drinks a lot. All were incredibly impressed, still talking about the fabulous evening we had here. Expensive and worth it-- I feel like I get excellent value for the money because it is so showy, there is such a variety, the place is just fascinating to walk through. Portions are small, expect lots of wonderful bites rather than an entrée. We received excellent service, and we were wearing our non-trendy business casual clothes. Definitely going back."

  • "Great food. Seating is nice but not all seats. Some are uncomfortable"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I had the bagel and lox cone, which was unexciting; the caviar cone, which was good but absolutely uninteresting; the cauliflower, which would have been good without the over abundance of raisins; the mozzarella and tomato salad, which was good but also nothing remotely special; and the Philly cheesesteak, which was the only item that was delicious. I also had the egg and potato dish, which tasted very good but the egg was raw - and I don't think it was supposed to be! I also tried the dirty martini, which sounded cool with the olive foam, but it ended up tasting basic and lukewarm. Plus the foam took up a quarter of the glass, so it was a short martini. If I went back, I would have the Philly cheesesteak only!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Such a fantastic, fun and delicious experience! Fantastic service and ambience that keeps you talking days and weeks beyond your meal! The food is so delicious and truly opens your mind to enjoying food on every possible level :-)"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Plan on sharing... but you only get a bite or two per plate! It's very pricey.... so plan on laying out a lot, but it's worth it. The food is exquisite and so unique."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "i heard about this place and decided to check it out. i was surprised that the food was not that great. though some dishes were great and others were really bad. because it's tappas, we ended up with about 15 dishes between the two of us. yes, we are pigs. the drinks were strong, which helped the later dishes seem better. to add insult to injury, we paid 20 bucks for valet parking after dropping close to 400 for dinner."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "A good server is critical in guiding you through the menu. Our first night, he was excellent. Thoughtfully bringing out the tapas in a well executed timely fashion. Cold first and warm later. The ceviche avocado roll was my dish of the year indeed!!! Beautiful presentation throughout and wonderful flavors and textures all night long with very few misses. The second visit we sat in the noisy dark room with a seemingly unmotivated waiter and sampled 10 new tapas. Maybe a little too adventurous in choices or molecular gastronomy has its limits. Long waits between dishes and what waiter brings a ceviche as the last dish. He realized his errors and tried to make up for it with 3 complimentary tapas. Too late. Optimism prevails and I recommend."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This was my second time here. The food was AMAZING as always, and I was excited because one of the specials was jamon croquettas. They were fantastic! Any time jamon iberico is involved, you know it is going to be spectacular. My only complaint was that I was stuck in traffic getting there and since we arrived more than 15 mins late, they sat us at the tapas bar. I would have had no problem with that, except that there were empty tables EVERYWHERE and I definitely should have been able to sit at a table. Tables that were empty when I sat down were still empty when I was finished. But since I sat at the tapas bar and talked to one of the cooks, I got to try what she was making. That was a nice perk. If you haven't yet, GO TO THE BAZAAR!"

  • "Outstanding restaurant!!! The food was highly artistic, modern, and delicious. It was a unique and wonderful experience!!! I love this restaurant!!!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This place is absolutely for a special occasion, looking-for-adventure night out. Molecular Gastronomy reigns here, and all the food is inventive and delicious, and, for a filling meal, crazy expensive. Mostly small, one-bite portions, with some more substantial fare sprinkled throughout. Don't miss the deconstructed caprese, the smoked yellowtail salad, and the cocktails made with liquid nitrogen and/or cotton candy. The tomahawk steak was magnificent and enough for four. Their selection of Spanish ham slices were excellent. Our final bite was a Philly cheese steak which has to be experienced."
