A word from The Six - WLA
The Society of Six was an influential community of six artists in Northern California during the 1920′s prohibition era. At their cabin, known as “The Chow House,” these six closely-knit artists enjoyed creating art with their home-made meals, brews and wines. The Six, established in 2010, was inspired by the “Society of Six” and in its honor we have created this rustic American experience to share unpretentious cuisine that is appealing to everyone. We have brought to our neighborhood a cozy atmosphere that is affordable and accessible to everyone. The restaurant’s décor is built using primarily recycled materials. Classic cast iron skillets and rustic wood planks are often used to serve our delicious locally sourced fare. Our streamlined menu emphasizes the concept of “six”; choose from six exciting starters, six savory entrees, six red wines, six white wines, six brews on tap & six desserts.

    This place id a dive, good for guys to hang out, or loud dinner with kids. Food is great if you want comfort food. Not a place for romance, but perfect if you want an easy earty meal. Service is " ok", place is loud, I will probably go back with bunch of guys for beer and burgers type of night.

    I made a reservation for lunch with my family. We arrived 10 minutes late for the reservation. I let the hostess know we all had arrived and had a reservation.- she shrugged There were at least 2 other people waiting for tables - without reservations. There was no acknowledgment of the reservation. I have eaten here before and the food is above average but not good enough to make up for the poor service. We chose to eat at a noter restaurant.

    We arrived 10 minutes ahead of our 11am reservation and were not acknowledged in a timely manner. We overheard the staff tell the lady ahead of us that even though we each had reservations, they didn't have enough tables to accomodate the # of reservations. Hmm.. what is the point of making a reservation? We waited to be seated 15 minutes past our scheduled reservation time and finally sat ourselves and waited another 10 minutes for the menus to be dropped wordlessly at our table (now 11:25). We finally were spoken to when the waitress asked for our order. Food was wonderful, but we will not be returning because of the poor reservation management and service. A simple greeting and update would have done wonders for our experience.

    Sad to report an underwhelming experience at this restaurant. They were busy when we got there, with only two people handling the entire bar and all tables. Tho we had a reservation we waited about 10 min to be seated and another 25 to place any orders. We ordered drinks and food all in one shot and the food came out before our drinks. The servers were apologetic but also had that "what can you do" shrug going on--they were slammed. The restaurant was VERY loud. Hard to carry on a conversation. The grilled peaches were really delicious, two other dishes we ordered were good, and one was just OK. Prices were fine, about what you'd expect for LA brunch. Overall, nothing truly offensive happened but we won't be going back.

    This is a very cool place in the middle of busy West L.A. There service is fabulous, and the food and wine are great. We ordered the smores dessert, which was not hot, which was disappointing. I gave only 3 stars for ambiance, because my friends and I were seated in the back, right next to the kitchen, which also shares the back entrance, and created a lot of foot traffic around us. Also, our table was directly under the A/C, which was uncomfortable. It's a small place, so I wouldn't advise for big groups.

    I am glad this place is not too formal, but still a nice place. I will definitely come back wih friends. Loved my burger and sweet potatoe fries. One thing, though, the mac and cheese fritters were too hard. They should be cooked just golden brown. Mine were too dark and crispy and mac and cheese is supposed to be creamy, even when it's fried...lol! Other than that, in Arnold's best and most ominous voice.........I'll be back!!!!

    Picked this spot for a briothers & sisters family get together dinner on Saturday. Everyone was very pleased. There were 7 of us, tables open up just as the last person arrived. Although busy, the waitress was very friendly and attentive. Food came out quickly and no complaints from anyone. The appetizers- peach salad, mac & cheese fritters, tuna tartar, and brussel sprouts were all devoured quickly. Entrees were bleu cheese burgers, braised short rib, pot pie, salmon, chicken and halibut. Plates were cleaned. Delicious desserts were key lime pie, butterscotch creme brulee, and banana creme pie (which was free since I checked in on Yelp). Definitely will be back.

    This was my first time at The Six in WLA, we are frequent diners at the Calabasas restaurant and have gone to the Studio City one many times. We were 9 adults, once we ordered our food and received it, we were completely ignored, no one asked if we needed anything, had to ask for fork etc. since there weren't enough settings to go around. We ran out of water, really disappointing experience. We did enjoy our food, but will probably not go back to the WLA restaurant.

    Hadn't eaten here in a while except for ordering pizza to go. Went for a friend's birthday with a large group (9 of us) and everyone thought the food rocked. Also, the service was really good -- none of the bad "big group" dynamic you sometimes have with a big group. Recommend the kale salad with fried skinless chicken. Deelish!

    Food was good, but our server was way too busy playing on her phone and chatting with other staff to take care of us. I had the smoked trout salad which I thought was bland, but my coworker loved hers. The Brussels sprouts and fried pickels were a hit and the risotto was excellent. I would go back if they can get their service in order. oh, and the deserts are BOMB

    I normally go to The Six in Studio City but I thought we'd give this location a try for brunch instead. Boy am I glad we did! While they dont have a patio & their space inside is set up more like a hipster bar... they have superb service from Diana & from their kitchen. Diana is a gem! I will be back for bottomless mimosa brunch because of her! She never let my glass get too empty. She always had a smile & great conversation to go along with it. The kitchen was fantastic, getting our special requests just right. The food was out of this world, even better than Studio City. The cooks always had a smile & a hello when you walked by & while this location is smaller it has Diana and a great kitchen who make this spot rock on Sunday brunch!!

    I love this joint because its close to my home, not pretentious (staff or patrons), and the food is always up to par with what I expect. The prices aren't outrageous and its good portions (not too big or too small). Service is great and they take reservations via OpenTable! What more could I ask for? (I would add that its not the most romantic spot so don't use it for a proposal, but definitely a good time spot!)

    The food was very good and somewhat different from the usual brunch fare. There were a variety of people there -- from couples to groups of friends, but I did not see any children there. My only criticism is that our water and mimosas were not filled without us flaggin someone down and asking. (I can understand the restaurant slowing our mimosa pace, but we really did need water!) I would definitely go back, for the food and the ambiance. Great place to meet up with friends.

    The waiters were awesome. I made a 9-person party reservation for a sunday brunch. I came earlier for a quick meeting with a client and had no problem finding a table without reservation. When it was time for my party to come, the people at my meeting joined the group with no problem. They have an 1 hr and 30 min limit for brunch with bottomless mimosas but allowed my first table to continue our bottomless mimosas with our new table, which arrived 45 min. later. We had a blast. I'll definitely come here again. Any requests we had, they were happy to oblige.
