First Time Visit was a Hit!
We'd never been here, and received a warm greeting from the host and pleasant, friendly service from our young male waiter, who was from Cannes but spoke excellent English. I enjoyed superb halibut as well as a very fresh-tasting Bibb lettuce salad, with delicious mustard-flavored vinegreatte. My husband had two appetizers - a beef tartare (a bit sweet, and with too many condiments and not enough beef, but tasty) and a delicious and generous crab salad. The drinks were good, but not cheap. We really enjoyed our food. As the evening went on, the music became much louder, so it was difficult to talk. We enjoyed watching the champagne with sparklers emerge for other diners. All the hamburgers being carried by us looked scrumptious. We were not rushed at all by anyone and able to enjoy a very leisurely and pleasant dinner.
The restaurant had great food and a great atmosphere. I loved the french theme of the restaurant too and everyone dining seemed like they were there for more than just a meal.
Steak and eggs was excellent.
we arrived at 7:30 and were almost completely alone yet the hostess wanted to seat us in the middle of the room with walking lanes on all sides. We declined and were finally seated at a table against a wall. The food was very good but the evening was ruined by the volume of the music played by the DJ. As more people arrived the louder it became and was ntolerable by 8:30. We were unable to speak to each other as were other dinersnwho tried to speak over the music. I guess the crowd was too young for us. For this reason we will not return.
This place is great. It's like a dance club/ fancy restaurant/ great food and the best service!!
The server never brought everything we ordered and was totally unconcerned when we brought it to his attention. The reason for this attitude is because for two people a 20% gratuity was added to the bill. So no matter how bad the service the server automatically receives a substantial tip.
I just wanna say the restaurant was so desperate and begging for a call- back to confirm my opentable reservation for Sat night, in the afternoon of Thursday. This is so annoying and stupid.
Terrible. I came here to catch up with a girlfriend who I had not seen in a while. The restaurant was virtually empty except for a few tables with elderly couples, yet the restaurant was blaring techno and dance music and flashing disco strobe lights. It was totally distracting and unnecessary given that the place was almost empty and the crowd that was there did not seem into it. The food was ok, however I requested my fish to come grilled with sauce on the side. When it arrived it was dropped off by a bus boy and the sauce was all over it - not what I requested. Our waiter had a cute ponytail and a french accent but I cannot forgive him for never ONCE coming to check to see if our dishes came out ok.
There are way too many great restaurants in Los Angeles...don't waste your time or money here.
Sunday brunch is a must! Super festive atmosphere and great drinks. The food was excellent too. The DJ was super fun and was spinning some super fun music. It was a rather slow Sunday with the restaurant not packed to capacity but still fun. Our reservation was for 12:15 which was right after it opened. I hear it gets more packed towards 3pm. Would love to try this again for a special occasion!
