Very tasty! The dim sum is delicious and the cocktails are refreshing. There is valet service, so there is no hassle trying to find parking on Beverly.

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.

Nice restaurant, and good food. Staff was very nice, but service was a little slow. If you tend to order a good amount of food, try this place out at least once. It's a pretty cool spot to get together with friends, but it is a little too pricey to make it your regular dim sum spot.

Everything was delicious - the beef chow fun, the pork dumplings, chicken shumai, egg tarts... but the stand outs were the radish cakes with Chinese sausage, the crispy scallion pancakes and the milk buns! The staff was very friendly. It was busy when we were there during lunch, but I thought the staff did a good job keeping up with their tables. I will definitely be back!
