    This had never happened to me before, but I booked a table at Bao for myself and a guest and although they had our reservation and arrived just prior to the appointed time, we went to the bottom of their list on account of having booked through Open Table! They didn't even try to disguise that fact... so after half an hour my guest and I left. I only filled out the prior page in order to let you know this - II had been going there for years, but definitely won't ever go there again on a weekend night... or maybe ever. The people were rude and it was embarrassing.

    Although my reservation was at 4, I didnt get seated until 430. The hostess forgot that I had checked in. Everything we ordered was good, but I wish they all came out at the same time. If you're used to dimsum served in carts, this place isnt for you.

    Bao had all my favorite dim sum dishes. Like other Americanized dim sum restaurants, ordering was from the menu, not from a cart of dishes rolled through the restaurant. The dim sum was very good as was the service, but it was a little pricey.

    We found it delicious but as we came by 9:00 p.m we had to hurry to order food and beverage. Too sad! Besides the head staff was professional and a bit cold. But the restaurant was so good it was worth it.

    If you want good dim sum in LA, Bao is a good option. The food was very good and not greasy as at some restaurants. For those seeking a "traditional" dim sum experience where the food is brought out on carts for you to pick and choose, this is not the place for it. Everything is ordered off the menu, which has a fair but not extensive selection of items.

    The dimsum quality was average. LA has a big Chinese community, this is like dim sum as imagined by non-Chinese restauranteurs. The food did not come on carts but had to be ordered, which was fine with me. The food did take a long time to come for dim sum standards.

    The Dim Sum is delicious, no question. The chicken spinach dumplings are superb. Our waiter was super nice, sweet and attentive. The secondary servers were equally effective, not as friendly and social, but did their jobs. I had a great time and if I had any complaint at all, it would be that the hostesses (there were two) are not super friendly / smiling hostesses. I looked to see if it was just me, but they didn't seem to love greeting people.

    ...this has the best dim sum in town. Bao down to this restaurant. We loved their chicken shumai and their shrimp stuffed eggplant the most. The sticky rice with chicken and sausage was a bit disappointing as the rice was not that sticky but was more soggy. They also offer complimentary valet (plus) because it is hard to find parking in the area. The staff were friendly, courteous and polite.

    Bao used to be one of our favorite restaurants The service has gone downhill and the portions have become increasingly smaller. The noise level has also gone up to the point where we couldn't even hear the person next to us. Overall the dining experience just isn't as enjoyable as it used to be.

    We tried BaoDim Sum on a wet and cold Los Angeles day for an early lunch. The atmosphere was warm, service friendly and attentive and most importantly the dim sum was plentiful, varied and delicious. Highly recommended.
