Ba Restaurant in Los Angeles, CA is the product of an artist and sculptor creating a stunning space in which to enjoy French provincial classics. Using haute cuisine techniques and only the freshest California seasonal ingredients, diners are treated to a constantly changing array of menu choices.

There are small plates that offer everything from charcuterie to unique vegan soups on the Ba Restaurant menu. Entr�es might feature unique seafood dishes like the moules frites or ono wahoho with opal basil pistou. There are meat and vegetarian entr�es too, and it would be a grave error to finish up a meal at Ba Restaurant without dessert. With options like the frangipane tart or the fresh orange cake you cannot go wrong.

Ba had an interesting selection of food on the menu. The moules and fries were good, but didn't come with any green vegetables. The duck was a little dry, but the sauce was tasty. We went on a weekday night and it was relatively quiet inside.

We had a great experience at Ba's. My friends came for a visit and they were looking to have a quiet evening with great food and ambiance. Ba filled all these and more. Service was attentive and the food was excellent. I have been at Ba's before and each time has been a wonderful experience.

Small menu, very simple but tasty options. Everything was very fresh and the service was great. The lamb stew was delicious.

I love coming to Ba for brunch but the dinner is a missed opportunity for good dining. Ingredients aren't listed in menu descriptions and entree options are off seasonally. No grace in knife cuts or presentation. Desserts seemed frozen not fresh. Our tart was hot in the outside still frozen in the middle. With its price point Ba could really be killing it but it seems
Like it's just chugging along.

This is a small venue. The menu is limited but excellent. There are no frills here but it's the food that takes the spotlight. Pork chop was outstanding. We ordered the three desserts on the menu and all were outstanding.

In the hip York Blvd area, this is a nice, not overpriced (but not cheap either), restaurant. Not too big. We ate outdoors in a small patio with metal tables and chairs on uneven floor - so quaint. Daily selection of fresh items - carefully sourced and prepared, but not overly elaborate. We had 2 grilled fish dishes that were both different and tasty. Fun area to stroll around and enjoy the new local bar scene, and brewery (Hermasillo). Nearby public parking lots tend to fill up, so go early if you have a reservation.

Four of us went with a friend who had been there before and loved it on a Friday night in April. The food was excellent. We had each something different and the service great. This time, on a Thursday, they didn't expect a busy night, so they only had one waiter who did everything (seating, serving and bussing). He did a fair job of keeping up, but at the end, when more people showed up, we had to wait a considerable time to get our empty plates cleared and the check. The menu was uninspiring that night and the food just okay at best. I had raved about this place, so bringing someone new and having just an okay meal, was disappointing.

In the growing York Boulevard scene in Highland Park, French restaurant Ba stands at 51st and York. I've probably been there twenty times now. While it's priced higher than a casual restaurant (expect to spend $30 a person for entree and drink), its quiet and elegant atmosphere is exactly what I love. We often start with a bread-cheese-and-fruit board, usually not listed but can be made. The menu changes daily, although the steak-and-fries is offered all the time--a sure, good thing. It's a thin tasty steak, cooked to order. I like medium rare, and it comes medium rare. The fries are thin and accented with fresh parsley.

Most recently, I had grilled salmon there for the first time--flavorful and tender. If the grilled tuna is on the menu next time, I might try that.

While the beer and wine list is not large, the selections are wonderfully eclectic. The creme brule is out of this world. My wife and I love the place by ourselves or to entertain friends. It's a place you can talk and relax without being rushed.
