A word from Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill - LA Live
The Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at L.A. Live modernizes the traditional “bar and grill” with approachable fine dining in a stunning setting. Esteemed hospitality designer Tony Chi captures the essence of the relaxed California dining experience which Puck made popular with the original Spago. Just like its name, the restaurant features a contemporary "bar and grill" menu offering Puck's signature comfort food that can be enjoyed either as a casual, quick-bite or as a leisurely dining experience. The restaurant offers creative salads, handmade pastas, pizzas from the wood-burning oven, enticing entrees and meats grilled over hard wood. Guests can complement their meal with a handcrafted cocktail, wine from the distinctive list or enjoy the restaurant’s housemade desserts. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We waited about an hour for our lunch to arrive. The waiter didn't visit our table again to inquire about drink refills until after I had finished my meal. The salmon was good but not cooked the way I had requested."

  • "Puck's Bar & Grill is an easy, casual restaurant for a night at LA Live. The food is classic Puck, as is the staff and ambiance. The patio onto the courtyard provides views of people and vibrant lights & screens. Our out of town guests enjoyed it."

  • "...when working at the close by LACC. "I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.""

  • "A smile goes a thousand miles. Our waitress didn't make it a foot. I had a business meeting with foreigners and aside from being in the middle of a conversation which distracted from studying the lunch menu, it also to took my guests a bit longer to read and understand the menu. Instead of offering help, the waitress (elderly lady) became impatient and was just unfriendly enough for me to never take anybody back to this restaurant. It was embarrassing."

  • "Very deserted for weekday lunch crowd. I think I know why - terrible service and mediocre food. Not at all what we would expect from Wolfgang Puck. It's unfortunate but we will not be going back. LA Live offers great dining options so there is no need to frequent a place that offers bad service and average food."

  • "Why does it feel like Wolfgang is just phoning it in at this restaurant? Why does it feel that way at most of the restaurants at LA Live? This place feels kind of like Wolfgang's greatest hits done without any passion at all. There's the Chinois Chinese Chicken Salad on the lunch menu and some lackluster pizzas. Everything was just fine, but that's kind of it. I do have an issue when the first words from the server is, "Are you ready to order?" Not hello, not how are you today, not may I get you something to drink while you're looking at the menu. Still looking for that place at LA Live that I can get excited about - this ain't it."

  • "The food was very, very average. Not what you would expect considering the price. I know it more because we were at LA Live but the food we got was not better than say at Chili's- I am being serious !"

  • "Very nice restaurant for the location. We went on a Sunday night so it was not too frenetic. Service was excellent, attentive almost to the point of being too much. Salads were excellent, as were the chicken biscuits. Burgers and mac & cheese also very good. Pasta and gnocchi not great -- pretty uninspiring and gnocchi was dry. Decent selection of beers and wines by the glass. Nice ambience inside but outdoor tables too loud due to LA Live music blasting away. We'll be back but it's not top of the list by any stretch."

  • "Make reservations a must for this place, especially this location with all the events going on and it being at L.A. live. There was a 1 1/2hr walk in wait but we had reservations and were seated immediately. Loved it! Been here before, food was yummy but menu does change based on availability, wanted the ahi tune poke salad not on menu but Cesar was excellent. Pineapple mojito very tasty. Have been to other restaurants around there and Wolfgangs is better taste wise and price wise and service. The others don't compare. Service is way too long at Katsuya and not good at all they're too busy forget food etc and sushi overpriced. Trader Vic's food just so so but if you want drinks only good place to go. The Farm food is just ok also."

  • "We went to eat there before Depeche Mode concert on September 29, 2013. The hostess was excellent for greeting and take us to the patio area seating. We ordered the appetizer with Crispy Fried Calamari, Capers, Parsley,Lemon, Gremolata Aioli and Prosciutto di Parma, Basil Pesto, Oven Roasted Tomatoes, Olives, Goat Cheese. These food taste great. The server was great service. I don't quite remembered his name and I look at my receipt. It show his name is S-Alex and the check # is 212507 9/29/13. So I would love to come back again, if I have a nice date to come to your place Wolfgang Puck in LA Live area. Thank you for your service."

  • "We had a reservation at 5:00pm pre-concert at the Staples Center. 5:00pm is the IDEAL time to go since we had no problem picking where we sat. We sat outside which was GREAT for people watching. It's very vibrant and lively in front of the restaurant with concert/sports spectators. The restaurant became crowded from 5:30pm and on so I would definitely suggest making an earlier reservation so you can enjoy and not feel rushed before your show. There was so much to choose from on the menu that I had a problem trying to pick out one meal (which is a good thing!). I suggest ordering a few different items to share and sample between a group of people since everything looks so good!"

  • "We had a great dinner with NFL great and Hall of Famer Willie Roaf, along with Actress Ciera Payton ("Days Of Our Lives", "The Closer", USA Network's "Graceland", Spike Lee's "Oldboy"). Food was delicious. Our waiter was so courteous and even took the time to take photos for us to tweet (@ToniR_Publicist) and post to Instagram!"

  • "Very Loud during dinner. Poor and very slow service. We have been trying to dine at all restaurants at LA Live over the past year, and all have been very good. WGP Bar and Grill is so far at the bottom of the list, with only a few more restaurants to try in the area."

  • "Fun atmosphere before a concert. Crowded but not too loud. Food was excellent. Service was a little slow and there was over an hour wait without reservations but many tables were empty the entire 2 hours we were there."
    Dined on 8/24/2013
  • "Food was decent for this type of place. Looks nice on the inside and pretty social. Way too loud a place to really have a decent conversation with friends. Great if you like a noisy club atmosphere. If you're at LA Live, and there is nothing else that interests you and you don't mind loud, this will work."

  • "place was nice, location, who can complain at LA Live? Service was great, staff friendly. Overall ok, wasnt too excited over the meal I chose which was the sirloin burger. The meat itself was too salty, felt like it was marinated in soy sauce to be honest. My wife got the spaghetti and meatballs which was very small as far as size. Was able to get my parking ticket validated by who I believe was the manager."

  • "I always go here before any concert at Staples Center. The food is always great, and the drinks are really good. It does get every busy on concert/game nights, so use open table the day before for reservations"

  • "We went for the weekend of the BET experience made reservations thought would be crowded, not at all. We were almost 45min late but called ahead and we still got seated immediately. Waiter was great attentive to fact we had concert tix for Beyonce and made sure we were out in time even tho we arrived late. Food was very good, had roasted halibut with polenta finished it off, had spicy ahi tuna with blk/white sesame chips very tasty had same at two other restaurants there made little different and Wolfgangs beat them all. Bar was alittle slow and crowded. But was still better than other restaurants we ate at during that weekend. Will definitely come back again...beats Katsuya in service, beats The Farm, Trader Vic's in food and scene."

  • "Definitely not the best WP's place in terms of food, although not bad it could have been better. Seems that seasoning was lacking in almost al dishes. Service was great and attentive. The restaurant is nice and elegant but also sporty. Good to try once, since the food was not very flavorful."
    Dined on 5/26/2013
  • "At best, the food is mediocre Americanized Chinese and extremely overpriced. I expected more sophisticated and creative dishes for the $500+ we spent for a party of 3. WP24 is obviously a tourist trap that lures in the unknowing and those that rate quality solely based on price."

  • "We came here in a large group for dinner before the Clippers game. Considering there was a large group, everyone was catered to with a large selection and variety of choice. It was perfect pre-game food: good pizza, burgers and tacos. The portion size is just right: not too large, and the starter salads are also great. Highly recommended for good quality, crowd-pleasing food, especially if you are eating before an event at the Staples Center. They also have a good range of cocktails: the raspberry lemon drop is recommended!"

  • "We dined with another couple also celebrating an anniversary that coincided with a business trip. The menu of upscale comfort food presented beautifully, in a comfortable leisurely setting was just perfect for us that night. The restaurant was not full, which made the noise level very manageable. I can see how it could be very noisy for conversation otherwise. Service was extremely attentive without being intrusive. We all enjoyed the food and wine, and the dessert we shared which arrived on a pretty plate saying Happy Anniversary; an unexpected touch."

  • "After we were sat I asked the waitress if we could sit outside where the talk tabkes were and she said we have to have a reservarion for that and I wasn't sure she was telling the truth. Or did not make an effort to find out uf the table was available. She took the order for soup and salad abd did not bring bread or did not see her for a whike to ck i n us to see if we needed anything else. We needed bread, butter and tabasco and had to ask the person who brought us water to get that. By then we were almist done. We had ordred pizza and they were terrible. I would rather go to CPK next time. Totaly disapointed with the service and food. Never eat at their restaurent."
