    Went here for Dine LA with friends and the menu was great. It did not feel like a Dine LA experience where you did not get enough food or the food was of lower quality than on regular nights. The servers were attentive and gave great recommendations for the cocktails (which are not to be missed). It's a converted house and the ambiance was great. We also loved the music playing upstairs. My friends and I will definitely be returning even after Dine LA ends!

    I like intimate restaurants with character and the Larchmont fit the bill. On trend, yet not flashy, straight forward fare with polish and inventive fresh cocktails. Though not really child centric the restaurant proved very accomodating to my 4 year old who joined us for our early New Years Eve dinner.

    Sustainable, organic, grass fed, small farm to plate menu - everything I dream for a restaurant to deliver - tucked away in the comfort of an old house in the beautiful Larchmont neighborhood. This is my fourth visit and each time the brilliant young Chef Cody Diegel has visited our table to ensure we enjoyed the food. Did we ever! Best kale salad on the planet, brussels, and the vanilla lobster risotto will change your life. Also, we've had Collin twice as our waiter - top shelf service - funny, knowledgable, a blast.

    We had our staff party there and had an excellent time. The cocktails were interesting and not disappointing. The food selection covered both the vegetarians as well as the carnivores. Didn't have room for dessert but enjoyed a nice dessert wine. The staff was attentive and quite attractive. They all appeared to be relatives of Nate Berkus. : ) There were 6 of us and we could all hear each other and participate in the conversation. It was a very successful evening. Thank you!

    Great little find in the Melrose and Larchmont neighbourhood which is not far from West Hollywood. Highest quality fish, and the vegetables were fresh and perfectly cooked. The kale salad was magnificent. Those who had pork were impressed and very satisfied.

    No one wanted to cook, everyone wanted to eat well. The Larchmont supplied enough options in their holiday buffet to make all five of us happy, even providing a special stuffing option for the vegetarians. And the price was extremely fair for the quality. We'll be back!

    Went for their Thanksgiving buffet. The ambience was great. We went with friends + our 4 yr old and there were other kids there too which was nice. A mix of families, people on dates, local Larchmont/Hancock Park types. Great scene. The food was delicious. Our waiter was great. Service was pretty slow that night but it was very crowded so it was kind of expected. I highly recommend this place!

    WillowVIP
    Dined on 11/9/2013
    This place could use a little help with the ambiance but the food is really good and the staff is very friendly. We asked to sit on the patio but when we couldn't read the menu due to the "mood lighting" we moved to the bar where we could see. Lucky for us because we ordered quickly and were able to make it to our next location on time. We bumped into some friends coming in after us who ended up walking out after waiting 90 minutes for their appetizers. That really suggests a disconnect here along with the fact that not being able to see anything while sitting outside was somewhat of a turn-off. It feels a little stuffy to me inside so that is why the patio seemed preferable. Hope they turn up the lights a little because the food is great.

    Quick review: Very good food. Committed servers. Good bartender. Young, vibrant crowd. Indoor/outdoor vibe. Overall it's a scene, as they say. Lots of younger industry types. However, it's not for me. Far too noisy with acoustics that amplify rather than modify sound. They don't need my business, they're very successful and I wish them nothing but the best!

    We had a terrific meal at The Larchmont on Saturday night. We had two salads and several sides, which we all split and they were all very good. We all ordered different entrees -- salmon, lamb shoulder, pork tenderloin and venison -- and everyone thought theirs was very tasty. Our waitress was terrific; she knew the menu and offered up just the right number of suggestions. Corkage was $25 -- the most I'll grudgingly accept!

    What a wonderful meal. Food was delicious, ambiance was great and the service was excellent. My only complaint would be that the wine list was very limited. There were only 10 bottles of Red Wine from which to choose and of those only two were from California. We brought our own wine which they graciously opened for what is now a typical corkage fee in LA of $25/bottle. I consider this restaurant a "must try" for anyone within a 20-30 minute drive.

    Went here sort of last-minute because they had good reviews and ample reservations available for a Saturday night. It was 2 couples and we had a great waiter who as friendly and new the menu well. The restaurant itself is very cute, it's a converted house and it feels like you're going to a beach house or something. The steak frites were delicious as was everyone else's food! Will go back for sure.

    I expected a really good steak frites. The French fries were delicious, which was lucky because the steak, ordered rare, was hardly even pink and full of gristle. Because I was a guest and didn't feel like making a fuss, I didn't complain or send it back. Another guest ordered the same meal, and his steak looked better and was not overcooked. Otherwise, I like the menu.

    What a terrific experience! From stunning starters like the Pork Belly that melted in my mouth, to a most wonderful grilled octopus salad with a chili infused dressing, to an entree of sauted scallops surrounded by fresh corn relish, the food was simply fabulous...It was only equalled by the outstanding mixed drinks, make of fresh ingredients, prepared, served by a refreshingly friendly and warm staff. The simplicity of the atmosphere gives one an opportunity to see, taste and enjoy rather exceptionally tasted and plated food in a heightened way.

    The Larchmont is what LA has been waiting for. A real gem that has come on the scene in a calm cool and collective manner. Not the typical new LA hot spot that over hypes itself. The Larchmont has taken care to give its customers a warm, clean and chic decor with a chef that has perfected his craft. The dinner experience is one of a kind that makes you want to tell a friend and plan your next visit. It will make a regular out of you from your first experience!

    I chose The Larchmont after a dinner date canceled. I just looked for something interesting in the area and easy to book on Open Table. What a great surprise it turned out to be. Service was top notch, with just the right amount of attention and suggestions on what was great on the menu. Ambiance was delightful--I sat on the patio, which was a bit magical. And the food was pretty terrific. Steak Frites made just the way I like it--generous, lightly charred, with extra crunchy fries. I'll be back!
