Craft LA is reopening for limited capacity indoor & outdoor dining.

In 2014, Chef Tom Colicchio brought Craft’s pioneering culinary approach from New York to Los Angeles to continue his celebration of 'single' ingredient dishes, expertly & simply prepared. Currently under the execution of Chef de Cuisine Brian Rigsby, Craft continues to feature a menu of local produce, all-natural meats & day-boat seafood. Designed by award-winning architecture firm, Bentel & Bentel, Craft Los Angeles is a bustling 10,000 square-foot space that includes a dining veranda overlooking a four-acre park. Craft LA earned a three-star review from The Los Angeles Times in 2007 and improved to three and a half stars in 2010.

Reservations are now open and are strongly encouraged. Dinner is served Tues-Sat, with our last seating at 9:30pm

It was great. It was pricy. Food was excellent, minus one or two small things. Example: My husband's steak had a lot of gristle for a $60 steak. Probably wouldn't happen every time, but for the price... The service was top notch. The ambiance was very nice. I had a great time but it didn't blow me away.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review us. I hope your husband let us know about the steak and that we offered him something else. Do not ever what any one of our guests to not enjoy something because we can rectify anything. I am glad you loved the service and had a great time and other than the steak would love to hear what was missing that would have blown you away. Todd

I typically love Craft but this was a hugely disappointing experience. It started with difficult parking. Then the service was really bad. We started with a cocktail that was awful. The food was ok but definitely not up to what one would expect from Tom Collichio. The waiter brought our check before we were even finished. We had only been there for an hour and wanted another cocktail since the wine pours at dinner were so stingy.
I don’t think we’ll ever go back to Craft. It’s not the same at all. Too many great choices in LA. Very disappointing.

Craft gave us such a good dining experience! It was my birthday, and the manager, Todd Thurman, went above and beyond with service, with changing reservation numbers, changing the dinner time so my son could make it to the celebration, and one member of our party with shellfish allergies! They even specially printed out our menu with "Happy Birthday, Shannon!" on them! We tasted everything as a table of 4, and especially loved the quail on polenta appetizer, the wild arugula salad, the Alaskan halibut, and the Wagyu ribeye steak. Their vegetables were delicious as well, as we tried the asparagus, charred snap peas, and roasted potatoes. It was a meal to remember, and I felt very special when they brought out a birthday candle on my ice cream dessert!

To be fair, I think we should wait for more normalcy in the dining world. The menu wasn't great, nor was the presentation of some of the food. I know they can do better.

Hi Cookie, I am so sorry you were disappointed in our food. Your are correct in saying that maybe you should wait for some more normalcy in the dining world if what we are currently offering was unsatisfactory. First I have heard this from anyone but noted. Would love to hear how you think we could do better. Please feel free to reach out to me personally. Todd Thurman

Craft is back and better than ever.. The outdoor patio is so romantic, inviting, private and intimate. Service is excellent as are the cocktails and wine service.

Ahi Tuna, Crab and Scallops were tasty and complete.

Wagyu Strip was so tasty. Sides of asparagus, snap peas and potatoes highlighted the meat.

Good to see the same staff back and smiling as always.

Second dinner since they reopened mid March and will be back soon.

The most consistent restaurant in LA year after year.

I had a wonderful experience at Craft restaurant. I was a half hour late getting to the restaurant because of confusion due to the construction in the area, however they did not cancel our reservation or give away the table which was wonderful.
Our server was great. He checked on us regularly but not too often, and kept our cocktails refreshed.
The food was flavorful and the portions were reasonable. They maintained good distance between the tables and kept indoor seating to the county guidelines which made us feel very comfortable.
I will definitely return to this restaurant again.

Delicious food...they certainly NEVER disappoint. HAMACHI CRUDO is out of this world. And hard to leave without eating at least one of their chocolate chip cookies, even in this no sugar/no flour age. Wonderful atmosphere, PERFECT for COVID era: large patio area, heaters, plenty of space to comfortably space out tables. Staff very attentive and kind. Free valet (but make sure you put into your GPS 2000 Avenue of the Stars, due to street work).

we asked to order an appetizer with our drinks and our waiter discouraged us saying we should order all at once? We added potatoes to our order a few minutes after we put in our dinner order The wygu was cold wben served as were the mushrooms. Service was ok and meal should not have been served cold for the cost. Of the two waiters the heavier set one was rude as he was to us the last time we were there. Will not be back.
