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."

Several times during the evening I felt I was not worthy of the high quality and excellent service. The service was tremendous and the little extras from the kitchen were endearing. I really enjoyed the homemade granola. I will return as often as my budget allows.

Craft is one of our regular restaurants but that particular night was not good. The waiter was not cordial. The hostesses were difficult and the air conditioning was cold m
The manager, Max, was very helpful though.

Two stars overall since the service was great. Food fell very flat. So mediocre with a huge price tag. Nothing was refined about this food. The room felt tired and like it needs to be refreshed or infused back to life. Very disappointing experience.

We ordered fish based on the server's recommendation. It was amazing. Everything we had was amazing including the wine. We had dessert and they then gave us extra dessert on the house. After paying the bill we were given 2 bags of homemade granola. I highly recommend this restaurant. Our waiter gave us excellent service. It was my first time there and I will definitely be back.

There was nothing special about the meal. It’s a bummer to spend the holidays at a nice restaurant and have the food be subpar. The stand out was the Yukon potatoes and the scallops. I was Hoping the turkey and stuffing would be great on thanksgiving but it was on par with Boston market without the inexpensive prices. Bummer.

Thanksgiving dinner so maybe not at it’s best but overall it was heavily overpriced for the quality of the food which was very very average and disappointing. We won’t go back.

Really cool resturant. Great food and I love the family style. Som did a great job with the wine. The only down side was the waiter. He really was no help. Asked about what drink, he said they are all good. Asked about thoughts on food, said all food was good. Asked to see the Somm for thoughts on wine and I kid you not he said all wines are on the list. He really made a great meal just average.

This is a very classy establishment with an equally classy clientele. The menu is exceptional and my single biggest like is the quietness in the restaurant which I attribute to the diners. The notion of "inside voice" is lost on so many places in LA but not here at Craft.

We had dinner on Saturday, November 3 , with friends and all were disappointed with the food. It was salted heavily....the cauliflower was sickeningly sweet and all was an expensive disappointment. We ate dinner at Craft a couple of years ago and had good memories of that dinner but this was pretty awful. I wonder if the chef was absent on Saturday !!!

Perfection! Made the reservation 24 hours in advance. They called to confirm 5 minutes later and asked if we were celebrating something. It so happened we were. When we arrived we were treated like visiting royalty. Everyone wished us a happy anniversary. We were treated to an amuse bouche, excellent drinks, sublime food, a special dessert and extra treats. We were early to catch a show later but by the time we left the restaurant was full yet it was still nice and quiet. They were hosting a walk/run for leukemia on the patio but nothing interfered with our experience. This was by far the highlight of our whole trip.

Made a reservation at Craft for our anniversary - Craft took all the extra small steps to make us feel super valued on our special day.

Several examples:
1) Personalized menus
2) Multiple staff congratulating us on our anniversary
3) Complimentary celebratory dessert

On top of the excellent experience, the food was top notch (we had oysters to start, scallops/angus steak/hen of the woods). Overall, we were very pleased with our experience.

This is my son's favorite restaurant and it was his 21st birthday the night before so it was our celebration together. As soon as we walked in he was wished a happy birthday by the hostesses, and even though we were just the two os us we were sat in a big booth while larger parties were at smaller tables...i think everyone who worked there came by to say happy birthday and we were presented with special menus with his name which they also presented a rolled up one to take home. Stellar service all around. And the food just so good....the yukon gold puree was addictive, the hangar steak so perfectly cooked and seasoned, the Jidori chicken best roast chicken ever, lovely shisito peppers. And of course you are started out with a amuse bouche before the meal and another one before dessert. The dessert amuse bouche was the best part of the dessert, sadly both the dessert we ordered and the one the presented him for his birthday were not my favorites, he liked them better but the mont blanc tarte was not at all what were expecting and the chocolate cake was a little dry. Given Tom Colicchio's role on Top Chef where it is common knowledge that a lackluster dessert is what has sent many a chef home I just think they can do a little better. Maybe it was off night and it certainly didn't sour our opinion in any way...honestly I'm not a huge dessert fan anyway, but we still dream of the peanut butter dessert that we had there years ago....Then we were given breakfast muffins to have for the morning. Just an mazing and special restaurant. And kudos to everyone who waited on us throughout the evening they made us feel very special.

We come here every year for our anniversary. The service is outstanding but not fussy. Our only complaint this time is that they did away with the chef's tasting menu, which was fabulous. I hope they reconsider bringing that back. I'm sure we'll be back for our next anniversary.

Excellent on all levels. Thank you for the amuse bouche....Shared 2 pastas for the 4 of us. Authentic and most delicious ..... The loup de mer was superb...crispy and flavorful. Halibut was perfectly roasted and delicious. The veggies: roasted cauliflower and potato purée were superb. Shared a trio of gelatos which were excellent. Loved the sweets presented as the finale.

Most professional service and beautiful ambiance. Craft is REAL restaurant! It seems to be consistent as well. Perfection! LA needs more places like this to dine! Thank you Tom Collichio!!

Craft was amazing! My boyfriend and I went because we are big Top Chef fans and wanted to try Tom's restaurant. Our meal was amazing. Some of our favorite things were the avocado salad, the ricotta cavatelli, and the mint chocolate chip ice cream (you could taste that the mint flavor came from actual mint leaves). The service was incredible.
