First Rate Food and Very Interesting Menu! Restaurant ambiance is contemporary, attractive, and beautifully done. Service is outstanding...wait staff know what they're doing. Great place to go for business dinner or private evening out. Couldn't recommend it more highly.
Great Experience, deliciosa food and precious Service.
Friends have recommended Craft for a few years. We finally go there. They were right. The food is excellent with all kinds of special touches and extras. My only warning is don't order too much, as the portions are more than substantial. We took enough home to have a meal the next night.
A restaurant to go to when you want to feel as if you're "dining" without feeling it's too formal.
Great restaurant. Highly recommended for a small group or family.
New Year’s Eve. Apps and desserts were a little disappointing.
Always wanted to try Craft as an LA native, but never got the chance until tonight. Took my wife out on dinner date and got to the restaurant.
Drinks were great, starter pasta was great. Time for the main course - Scallops, Wagyu Sirloin, Brussel Sprouts and Mushrooms.
The steak was cold - at $80 this was a joke. When we raised our concern to the wait staff, they mentioned this was an “american style” - not quite sure what they meant.
They bought it back by applying a hot wine reduction which did nothing but cooked the meat down and made it chewy. Our appetites were ruined and we pretty much left without completing dinner.
There are way better restaurants in LA for food and experience at this price point
Hi Sooraj, I am so glad we talked and look forward to welcoming you and your wife back. Tod
Thanks for the kudos!!!!! Todd Thurman GM
This visit did not come up to my expectations as previous visits . Hopefully, they will not be the case in future visits’ We have always love this restaurant in the past and hope to be able to continue our patronage in the future with the same excellent service and cuisine; unfortunately that was not the case last weekend
Superb hospitality, delicious food and the ambience is beautiful.

Thank you so much for the high marks and the kind words. We strive for excelence and so glad we produced on all levels for you. Thank you for joining us on Christmas Eve and hope you have a great new Year! Todd Thurman, GM
Craft is one of our favorite "special occasion" restaurants. The server was professional and personable. The room, even though packed for Christmas Eve, was fairly quiet. The food was wonderful, delicious and beautifully presented.
I’m from Missouri so anytime I have the opportunity to go to Los Angeles I always make it a mission of mine to go to Craft. Food and service always amazing. One of my favorite restaurants. Always feels like home when I go.
Hi Maria, Thank you for the kudos and so happy that you visit us every time you are in town. So glad you feel right at home here and that is always our goal. Please let me know when you are back in town and can make it even more special for you. Best, Todd
Everything was so nice, from the holiday decor to the friendly service! The food was excellent and I could not have enjoyed it more.Thanks for a lovely dinner
Hi John, I am so glad that you had such a great experience here at Craft. We so pride ourselves on our food and service and so glad we were able to take great care of you. Anytime you would like to come back please let me know and will make sure is just as great. Best, Todd Thurman GM
Starting with being greeted by Wendy the entire staff is extraordinarily pleasant and professional.
Amazing food, drinks and service. Great restaurant!
Good service. Food is solid. Not crazy expensive. Portions are good. You won’t leave hungry. Almost everything can be shared so don’t over order. A lovely time as usual.
Hi, Thanks for the 5 stars!!!!!! So glad you enjoyed our food and service. Also good advice on over ordering and I hope that your captain that night was able to help guide you. If you need anything in the future please let me know personally. Todd Thurman GM
Wonderful restaurant where one can order family style--small plates. Excellent carrots! Fabulous gnocchi and Yukon potatoes. Love the arugula salad--my favorite.
Hi Susa, Thanks for the 5 stars!!!!!! So glad you enjoyed. I must say the puree and the arugula are my two favorites too! Yes, love the gnocchi too. As far as fruit I just want to make sure that you know that you can order a fruit plate from our fruit section on the dessert menu. You can either choose which fruit you would like or just order and will be a bit of all we are offering that night. If you need anything in the future please let me know personally. Best, Todd Thurman GM
Best meal of the year
Great biz lunch destination
Going to Craft is a very comfortable experience. I say that because you can always count on a very relaxing evening of great food, excellent service and genuine pleasure. Not a bad dish amongst the lot, but if you try the short ribs you will go out begging to return.
Best food in LA. Quality. Delicious. Full of flavor. Worth the cost. Great ambiance. Nice service.
This is our 2nd dinner at Craft within the past 2 weeks.
We will definitively be back soon because it is very rare to have the very best food combined with the very best service and ambiance..
Overall an amazing experience! Will definitely make my way back to visit
Always reliably great food and the sound level and space make it perfect place for meetings.
I haven’t been to Craft in a few years. It was still just as good as I remember.
This restaurant is absolutely my favorite in the entire city. The service is exceptional and for a special occasion, they do a spectacular job making the guest feel special. The atmosphere is warm and elegant.
And the food- I have not had a dish, I didn't love. I recommend including all the sides- mushrooms, potatoes and snap peas. Sooooo delicious.
Outstanding service and amazing Loup de Mer. It was the perfect place to celebrate our 20th anniversary!
Starting and finishing with by charming Wendy
Marshall always sets the tone!
Celebrating my wife’s birthday. One of the best overall dining experiences we’ve ever had!! Incredible food and best overall service ever from everyone. This restaurant really makes customers feel special. I’d rank it 6 stars if that was an option!
Delicious quality food served with 1st class service in a beautiful decor.
Our favorite LA restaurant.
21st anniversary dinner and our 7th in a row at Craft. The service and food is always exceptional
It was a birthday to remember. Craft was personable from the moment we arrived.
We came for lunch during the busy hour with the restaurant full to bursting. Fortunately I'd made a reservation as that's really the only way to get in during the midweek lunch hours. We had to wait an extra 15 minutes or so for a table to become free because the business people tend to do long work lunches. The hostess and manager kept apologizing and eventually were able to give us a fun table...a booth in the middle of the restaurant which allowed for great people-watching. We were expertly served an amazing meal. The server suggested the duck salad for us to share (as we decided to do shared dishes for the table). It was an excellent start to a perfect meal of Jadori chicken, fingerling potatoes, mushrooms, broccolini, and ice-cream and freshly baked cookies with coffee for dessert. Fantastic!
The service, ambiance and attention very good. Main dishes--king salmon & branzino (not the exact name, but the server indicated it was "like branzino"), were not prepared very well. They were very disappointing. The starters and cheese plate were excellent, as were the specialty cocktails.
One of the most enjoyable dining experiences I have had for a family dinner out. Our party of six was warmly greeted and seated at a round table. Our server was extremely pleasant and explained portion sizes of the side dishes for sharing and made excellent suggestions. The individual entrees were perfectly prepared and nicely presented. The wine list was extensive, and our party enjoyed two bottles of the 2016 Turnbull Cabernet, which paired nicely with the hanger steaks, lamb and chicken dishes ordered by the individual family members. I can't say enough about the quality of the service and how pleasant all the staff was during our evening.
