Highly RecommendWe had the most enjoyable dining experience on the patio at Wilshire. The excellent food, wine and service made our celebration dinner one that we will always remember.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded ExpectationsI ate at Wilshire years ago and remembered liking it a lot, so we decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary there. The evening exceeded my expectations. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The wine and food were amazing. Wish we lived closer, we would return often.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional food and serviceThe food is beautifully presented with exquisite taste. I only can visit a few times a year when I am in town and the wilshire is the star of the trip.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Chef Experience...almostWe are well travelled foodies and fans of Top Chef. Reservations were a snap on Open Table. Server was perfectly engaging and familiar with the menu. The food was over the top brilliantly prepared! Truly the best black cod and braised short rib preparation we've ever had. Minor glitches on this nearly perfect experience - include a linty wine glass (shows really well against red wine), and a borderline arrogant welcome - nearly ruined this otherwise perfect evening.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly, EnjoyableWe had a nice dinner before an event at The Broad Stage. Service was terrific -- Food was generally good. I particularly liked the Calamari Appetizer - just the right combination of sweet/spicy5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great ambience.The food at Wilshire never disappoints. Moderate portions, but prepared to perfection. I enjoy the creative menu. If you go, you MUST sit outside. I've never loved the interior, but the outside patio ambience cannot be beat. Out waiter was knowledgeable, friendly, and made excellent suggestions.
A fun spot!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, deliciousExcellent service, delicious meals, great location.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat first visitWe had a great time- the patio area is wonderful. Food was very good, although I was a bit disappointed in the ribeye. It was pretty thin- the waiter did advise me of this beforehand. But there was nothing really special about the steak- it was just okay. And for the price it really was not something I would order again. Otherwise, everything was great. The black cod was fantastic, as was the mac and cheese.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSECOND VISIT. FOOD EXCELLENT,SECOND VISIT. FOOD EXCELLENT, CREATIVE BOTH TIMES. INTERESTING AND UNUSUAL FIRST COURSES. WE HAD FISH FOR MAIN COURSE BOTH TIMES, COOKED PERFECTLY AND WELL MATCHED WITH ACCOMPANIMENTS. MANY FIRST COURSES QUITE LARGE AND EASY TO SHARE. HAND-OFF BETWEEN DIFFERENT SERVING TEAM MEMBERS NEEDS WORK. PERSON WHO CLEARED FIRST COURSE DISHES TOOK MOST OF SILVERWARE. PERSON WHO DELIVERED SECOND COURSE DISHES WAS RUNNING LIKE MAD, HAD NO TIME FOR WORDS WITH ANYONE, SO WE HAD SECOND COURSE, NO SILVERWARE. PERSON WHO TOOK ORDER NOT TO BE SEEN (SELDOM SEEN DURING DINNER), SO I LIFTED FROM A NEARBY UNOCCUPIED TABLE.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe brunch is AMAZING, andThe brunch is AMAZING, and I love the DIY bloody mary bar. Such fun in a gorgeous space, and the value is amazing. Excited to brunch with Wilshire again soon!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful outdoor diningFantastic ambiance, great drinks, and good food. My friend said she'd had better duck, but it was still very good. I had the cod and thoroughly enjoyed it. The kale salad was outstanding. The dessert menu could be a little more robust and less "deconstructed," but it wouldn't stop me from recommending the Wilshire.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, great service,Good food, great service, the patio is the place to br4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis review is for lunch only.This review is for lunch only. The lemonades are wonderful and almost worth the $6 charge. When you eat here you are paying not only for the food, but also for the ambiance; still, the patio is so serene and lovely that it's worth the higher price tag.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWilshire is one of my favoriteWilshire is one of my favorite restaurants! I went to their new Sunday brunch last weekend and had a fantastic time. The food was delicious, as usual, and the buffet comes with bottomless mimosas and blood mary's. A great treat! And I always enjoy the outdoor patio seating. It feels like I'm in a peaceful garden.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time! We had anHad a great time! We had an early dinner party (so avoided the night scene) of 12 people in the Library and it was perfect. Great food, fantastic cocktails, and wonderful staff. Would definitively go back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGem of a findPaul was an excellent waiter, making our Easter brunch experience that much better. The food presentation was well done, tasty and at the appropriate temperature. The omelette station could use improvement, but was quite adequate. I would definitely recommend to others.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food tonightThe duck and filet were delicious. Sweet pea ravioli fantastic! Our server, Brian knows the menu inside and out, timed everything perfectly. Excellent.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you can get there beforeIf you can get there before or after the lunch crowd arrives, dining outside on a nice day is a little slice of heaven. We got there at 11:30 AM and had the patio to ourselves for awhile...fantastic! After even a couple of parties were seated though, it was already too loud for my taste...but that might have also been a function of the individuals in the parties themselves, rather than an observation on the patio's acoustics. The food itself was wonderful. I had the Lobster Cobb salad, truffled potato chips, and three of us split the chocolate chip cookie with malted milk for dessert (trust me, it can feed three easily!). Yummy! Loved the sea salt sprinkled on top of the cookie! Will definitely come back again.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWilshire winnerThis is a truly impressive restaurant. Excellent preparation of dishes with innovative approach to most all entrees. Try the Kale salad and the loup de mer. The outdoor part is
beautiful. Wait staff is helpful and friendly.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I had a nice dinnerMy wife and I had a nice dinner for two the other night. We didn't specify outdoor seating so we were stuck inside, which was ok. Next time, we'll specifically request to sit outdoors. Everything we ordered was excellent: Pork cheeks, lamb, brussle sprout side, sticky toffee pudding and Basil sponge cake with ice cream. Yum Yum.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and drinks were fabulous.Food and drinks were fabulous. Service was adequate.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great relaxing lunch.We had a great relaxing lunch. Lobster cobb and the shrimp enchiladas were outstanding as was the sticky pudding. The entire staff were pleasant and helpful. The outside dining was very comfortable with heat lamps to counteract the fog. However, I do not think I would want to eat indoors.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Our waiterFood was great. Our waiter Gary was great with recommendations.
I've been there a bunch and it never disappoints.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSat on the pation on a coolSat on the pation on a cool March evening, but there was plenty of warmth from the fireplace and heaters.
