Great new find!What a wonderful surprise! This is definitely NOT the Larchmont Grill which was just average. The Larchmont is OUTSTANDING in every way and a magnificent edition to the neighborhood. There were four of us and we all HIGHLY recommend it.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Larchmont is a great additionThe Larchmont is a great addition to the neighborhood. Interesting cocktails, the bartender can customize them to suit your taste, wonderful food - the halibut was perfect, and I love the new, more modern interior.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNot your Father's Larchmont GrillThe new owners of the Larchmont (formerly the Larchmont Grill) had taken a dowdy restaurant that was a safe bet for slightly overpriced comfort food and have turned it into a true bistro. From the signature cocktails, to the delicious small plates (the pork belly is great), to main courses ranging from classic French poulet sous la brique (a wonderful way of getting a crispy chicken dish without frying) to Moroccan-style lamb, The Larchmont has finally given Hancock Park a real option for dining besides pasta.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a new incarnationThis is a new incarnation of the old Larchmont Grill which was bought by some prominent chefs. Although the food is very good and lives up to its predecessor, the atmosphere has become fairly sterile. The old restaurant was warm, cozy and inviting. Unfortunately, the new people decided that perhaps it was a little too comfy and not edgy enough so decided to paint everything but the chairs white. I understand the need to distance themselves from the previous restaurant, but maybe they didn't have to go so overboard in the redecorating.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is brand new,This restaurant is brand new, replacing our neighborhood Larchmont Grill. The chef combines ingredients and flavors expertly, and, although some combinations are unusual, they all work in a complementary way. We were impressed and will return.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the new look of The LarchmontThis was our first time back since the new owners re-opened the restaurant, which is in our neighborhood. We love the new bar, and the new, cleaner look of the main dining room. The service was uneven, but that is probably due to just opening; we will give it another chance. The wine selections are good but pricey. The kale salad and chicken under a brick were both outstanding.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood gem!A perfect upscale neighborhood restaurant. House cocktails were incredibly inventive and delicious and the food was amazing! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great addition to theWhat a great addition to the neighborhood! I've gone twice in the past week: dinner with the husband and a business lunch. Both meals were exceptional--farm to table and delicious. The room is cozy and beautiful, the service elegant and relaxed. So happy to have a new local. Feel very lucky to live so close to The Larchmont!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy, don't compare!Excellent yellowtail crudo and really tasteful chicken. Not fair to compare to the Grill. Smaller menu but better wine list. Panna was a nice desert and had never cared for the pies before. Give the guys a chance to get settled!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI joined Larchmont the weekI joined Larchmont the week before its formal opening. We ate in the first floor dining room. The space is lovely and the perfect mix of cozy and yet modern. The food was good and the service was strong. My wish would be there was a better 2-top table location. Both were next to doors and had high traffic.
Glad this chef driven place is in the neighborhood.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe mussels appetizer wasThe mussels appetizer was exceptional. jack crudo was just okay. Among the entrees, the steak was underwhelming, even though the fries that came with it were excellent. The chicken was good, although the breast was overcooked.
The wait staff were very sweet, though not very knowledgeable about the menu, the ingredients, or how the dishes are prepared.
The interior is beautiful and romantic and very inviting. They haven't officially opened yet, so I have high hopes for The Larchmont.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
