    By far, hands down the best meat in town! The Caeser salad special was phenomenal, the Burrata with heirloom tomatoes, excellent. My filet mignon cut like butter and do not miss Max's wine recommendations. He is spot on and the sweetest person, to boot.

    Outstanding food, wine and service. One of the great restaurants in LA. Unfortunately, this is also now one of the most expensive restaurants we go to. Still worth it for an occasional visit, but very pricey.

    We ate here on our 6th night of a California road trip / vacation for our 15th anniversary. We booked a 5:30pm reservation, it was early for the area, so not crowded at the time. Server was very attentive and helpful. The wine list is great. The food was absolutely astounding. My wife and I shared a 14oz ribeye for a small sharing charge. The steak was one of the best I’ve ever had. Asparagus was excellent as well. We had mushroom cap appetizer and a dulce de leche cake for dessert. It was the best meal of our trip. Would absolutely go here again. It is not one of the “flashier” quasi-chain type restaurants but is a small local type of place that is excellent. I’m terrible at taking food photos, but I did snap one of the dessert we had.

    This was our second visit, as the first time a year ago we enjoyed it. This year we are sad to report we were very disappointed with the food. The salad was way over dressed, steak was oily and just not good, and the chicken was plated poorly and simply underwhelming. The desert was great. We will also say that the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive, but we did not feel physically well the next morning and were pretty upset to have spent $70 on a steak that made us ill. We won’t be returning.

    It’s pretty rare to go to restaurant and everything you eat is amazing … this is one of those rare spots. From the Argentinian beer, French fries, empanadas, to the steaks and fish everything we ordered (we ordered almost everything on the menu lol) was extremely flavorful, had amazing spices and perfect texture and temperature. My personal favorite was the ribeye steak… cooked to perfection, super juicy and had a hint of lemon which created a cacophony of flavors. Definitely come here, I guarantee you won’t regret it.

    I through a big party with 7 friends and Max and his crew made it a huge success. Food was great, atmosphere very war, inviting and European. My European friends remarked on the feeling and quality of the setting. The wine list is unusual and outstanding, just ask for advice from Max and you will be happy. One of the finest places in Los Angeles and lots of movie stars eat there too.

    The wine list is great and the wine we had was really good. Unfortunately we didn’t think the food was very impressive. I had the 1/2 chicken. It wasn’t tender and it was dry. The steak was also quite dry and lacked flavour. All in all, the wine was great, the food very much overpriced. Wouldn’t come here again.

    Nice cozy spot with great service and good food. Really enjoyed the 2017 Malbec the server recommended, cream corn and mash potatoes were delicious and we split a ribeye steak for two that was yummy as well. To be honest, I've had better steak in other places, but it wasn't bad. It was a solid 7.5 out of 10 steak. It was a bit tough and not as "melt in your mouth" as I was expecting. But don't get me wrong, still recommend this place, go take a date night here, you won't regret it. Oh and definitely get dessert, we had the marscapone, DELICIOUS.
