    We celebrated our anniversary here this past weekend. Food was great! We had a filet with an assortment of sauces, a twice baked potato and the shortribs. Everything was great, but the shortribs were the best! So yummy- just fell apart. They brought us flowers for our anniversary, plus they treated us so nicely. We definitely felt pampered. It is quite expensive, so we wouldn't come here every weekend, but for a special occasion, it was fantastic. Oh, and the music was great. Such a fun evening. We would come again just to sit in the bar and listen to the music as well.

    I took my boyfriend to Vibrato Grill for his birthday. From the time that we walked in, we were impressed with the overall ambiance and décor. I made the mistake by arriving too early before actual featured musician was scheduled to perform. However, prior to the featured performer, we were able to enjoy some wonderful music from the piano player and bassist. We started our night with 2 glasses of wine and the lamb lollipops (so delicious!). I order the scallops and my boyfriend order the braised short ribs for our entrees(both were delicious). We ended with the truffle chocolate cake. I found the price to be reasonable based on the location and no cover charge. We will definitely return for our next special occasion.

    Disappointed in quality of entertainment....piano...very good, Bass..always works there, Drummer...putting in the motions, Trumpet...as a former musician, it is not hard to recognize flat pitch! Boring...left early! The group spent a great deal of time getting acquainted...seemed that they were pickups.

    The restaurant was beautiful and we enjoyed the live music. There were so many great choices on the menu. The grilled peaches with burrata and spinach empanadas appetizers were fantastic. Our entrees were cooked to perfection as ordered - the surf and turf special, mahi, mahi and the Gorgonzola filet. The desserts - Apple crisp with salted Carmel ice cream and the lemon tart with pistachio were delicious. We really enjoyed our experience at Vibrato and loved our server Tiffany. She was friendly and attentive, making sure we had everything we needed, from menu suggestions, to decanting our wine, to flowers and a special dessert for the birthday girl. Loved Vibrato and loved Tiffany!

    A great place to enjoy a special dinner occasion, with entertainment. The entrance is not as obvious, but the inside is awsome. The bar, stage, and seating areas are perfectly situated. Sound is well managed . Server is very accommodating and easy. The Wine list was too short. No White-Zinny? Wow. Chardonnay was smooth enough... but the goblet was only 25% full (like a taster)...hmm, for that price, it should have been half-full. The menu had lots of choices to enjoy. The King Salmon and the Kobe Burger was full of flavors, textures, beautifully arranged. Salute the Chef ! It was truly a dining experience. Yes, the price was a bit high, but that included the entertainment... so, we had a great time. Will plan to be back again :)

    Great evening for our 2 couples, celebrating our special occasions together. Great jazz. Food was delicious. A small mixup with the kitchen on one of the hors d'oeuvres for one of us, but it was delicious in any case & staff was most apologetic for the error. Highly recommend Vibrato Grill & Jazz.

    This restaurant is a gem in many ways -- the decor is outstanding, the food very food, the people watching is most excellent, and, of course, the music is unmatched... But if you expect to have conversation with your meal, this is not the place for you. That might seem like a given to some, but it hadn't occurred to me that it would be impossible to hear each other while the musicians were on. Better to think of this place a great jazz concert venue where you will also happen to catch a lovely meal with small snippets of conversation during the evening.

    Pleasantly surprised as soon as we walked into Vibrato. The seating arrangement is perfect; with our seat we could see the pianist fingers, the drummer playing and all the musicians and singer making music. Looking around the club I realized EVERYONE could see the same things we were seeing, so the view is great for everyone. My husbands scallops were perfect, as was my lobster martini and salad.

    We had a wonderful time at Vibrato. We got a high top table near the bar that had a perfect view of the stage. The music was really, really good, but our food was terrific. We had a nice shrimp cocktail - the shrimp were huge. And we shared a Roquefort crusted filet which was cooked to perfection along with a Mahi Mahi filet over a mushroom risotto which was also really good. Our server was really nice, knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. This is a really nice night out to listen to great music with your loved one or a really fun fancy birthday party or special occasion place. I highly recommend Vibrato to anyone.

    The music, food and ambiance were fantastic. We went for dineLA to test it out and everyone was completely satisfied with their choices. I had the petite filet mignon medium well and it was delicious and juicy. It came with garlic mashed potatoes and spinach. The warm chocolate molten cake with vanilla bean ice cream was fabulous along with the ceasar salad that started me off. I didn't have a drink but those who did enjoyed the wine choices and the mojitos. We were seated right next to the stage and the performer that night served up some great songs from the 50's and 60's. It was a great show. Will DEFINITELY be returning.

    Everything was fantastic the night we dined. Food, service & music were great. Only comment (slightly negative) was the pricing of 'craft' cocktails, pre-dinner food items & deserts. Main dinner items & wine list are great & very well priced. We are not from Los Angeles however, so maybe this is the 'norm' in LA. I haven't experienced these items priced this high in NY, Chicago, Dallas & Houston.

    From the outside it looks like another restaurant in a strip mall but it's so much more. The food was outstanding, as was the service. The entertainment was top notch absolutely fabulous. Definitely will visit again, it will be a go to for me when in the area. The best surprise was the affordability of the evening. I have eaten in restaurants around the globe and live in Seattle, the final total for the evening was a pleasant surprise for the quality of the experience. Thanks to the staff for such a great evening.
