Tom Colicchio's Craft in New York City received the James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant nationwide in 2002 & five years later brought Craft across the country to join the other "top chefs" in Los Angeles. His new American dishes marry the finest ingredients, haute cuisine and family-style service. Under the execution of Chef de Cuisine Andrew Gavalla, Craft features produce from local organic farms, all-natural meats & day-boat seafood. With the award-winning architectural design of Bentel and Bentel & under the glow of filament bulbs, diners share dishes that celebrate 'single' ingredients, expertly & simply prepared.



Awarded Three and a Half Stars by S. Irene Virbila of the Los Angeles Times, she states:

“The menu offers a master class in contemporary American cuisine. You won’t find recipes with 17 ingredients or unnecessary frills. Each dish relies on simplicity & elegance, superb ingredients & expert execution to make its point."

Service and food was some of the best I've experienced in a long time. Everything from the cocktail to the entree to the acoustics was exquisite. Excellent service too. I'm a huge fan of Top Chef and was not disappointed. Mad respect to Tom Colicchio for this classy dining experience.

Service was poor. Expected more than tiny pieces of calamari in salad especially for the price. Pleasant looking restaurant with one of the one of the lowest noise levels.

The ambiance was the best part of Craft. Very nice trendy atmosphere, and great for a romantic date. Staff was very polite, but seemed moderatley pushy in having us order more food than we were really hungry for.
The pork belly appetizer was very very good. The lamb was also delicious. However, most everything else we tried was not up to par with the high end price point. This restaurant makes a better drinks and appetizers venue.

First let me preface this by saying that overall this is a very good restaurant and that our service was outstanding. However, I must say the food is uneven. We had one salad, two entrees, and a side. Of these, only the salad and one entree were great. The other entree was mediocre and the side was actually pretty awful. We did have dessert, and surprisingly, that was the best thing we had all night. We tried two or three and they were all delicious. The menu is a la carte which means, your protein comes alone on a plate. Sides are extra. At these prices, I think they could spare some vegetables or potatoes. But more than that, it was all just too plain for our taste. No seasonings except salt and pepper are used! All the proteins are roasted with just salt and pepper, and frankly, I can do that at home!! Fish was plain, gnocchi was awful. Maybe if you love very plain food this is the restaurant for you, but I just like a little more interest in my meals. It is very high quality food, no doubt about that. The proteins were fresh and of high quality, but it's all just missing something for the amount you pay. The restaurant itself is gorgeous, with a beautiful dining room. It was our anniversary and every single person expressed "happy anniversary" to us, and it was also written on our menu! A very sweet touch. The detail did not go unnoticed. Sadly though, the food needs to rise to the level of the service.

We celebrated my husbands birthday and everything was outstanding. Starting with the cocktails, and fresh bread through the 1st course, entree's and dessert. We all shared our food family style, but you don't have to if your prefer to order your own individual preferences. Service was also amazing. It's a bit pricey, but it was a very special occasion.

Inside is modern and warm, staff is top notch and the food was prepared perfectly. They even made me a custom drink (hot herbal tea poured over ice) and I never once had to ask for a refill...it just kept reappearing. It is on the pricey side but a great experience.

Perhaps the best restaurant I've been to in LA. Moved here from San Diego last year, and thus far have been somewhat disappointed. Until Craft LA, I would tell people LA can't hold a candle to SD in quality and diversity of restaurants to choose from. While that is mostly still true, Craft LA is the exception, and is exceptional.

Everything is fresh from the farm to the table (that is their motto), and you can certainly taste it. Even the bread and butter is better than I've had anywhere else.

Definitely try this place.
