Simply one of the most surprising, interesting and fantastic restaurants I’ve been to in a long time. Everyone working there knows their stuff, the manager came and checked on us (super kind human) the presentation of the food, the standard of the food, the knowledge. Absolutely blown away! Worth every dollar, go to this place and treat yourself life’s for living!

About the restaurant
Marino Ristorante is deeply rooted in Hollywood since the late 1950’s when Ciro (Mario to friends) Marino landed in Hollywood and has ever since had generations of who’s who in the movie, record, art, political and business LA community at his tables. Today it is still family owned and given its warm welcome flavor by the second generation of Marinos, Mario in the dining room and brother Sal in the kitchen.

The decor is modern and comfortable with memorabilia from a 60 year career which all come together to create its appeal. Described by many marrying the quintessential NY Italian in Los Angeles for its history coupled with today’s seasonal menu, highlighting the best locally sourced ingredients and top notch freshest seafood available.

As always, Providence does not disappoint. It’s a lovely way to celebrate a special occasion. They go out of their way to spoil their guests. Worth the extra expense. Service is warm and efficient but we never felt rushed. Food and drinks are impeccable.

Went here for my husband’s birthday. First time, was out of this world. Our server Rialy. I’m probably spelling that wrong, sorry. He was amazing. Explained everything for us. And the kitchen did an amazing job at making sure the food was cooked and served to perfection. Can’t wait to go back.

About the restaurant
Levant Bistro is a place to gather with friends and family to experience delicious Levantine cuisine and freshly baked pastries, served with our unique beverages. We believe that good food feeds the tummy and soul, so it is to be respected and cooked with positive intentions, using organic, clean practices and foods free of artificial additives, harmful ingredients, or GMOs.

Our menu is created around seasonal ingredients that we prepare fresh every day, so our selections vary based on availability. We use extra-virgin olive oil and grapeseed oil for sautéing; organic ghee, grass-fed butter, and/or grapeseed oil for baking; and we sweeten our desserts with organic cane sugar, organic coconut sugar and/or local raw honey. We proudly choose organic and non-gmo raw ingredients to meet our high standards, and curate a menu that is 100% gluten & soy free.

We look forward to hosting you in either our beautiful dining area, bar, or cozy patio under olive trees.

We had a terrific meal here last night. The room is warm and beautiful and the food and service were both first rate. We ordered at least 10 dishes and there wasn’t even one that wasn’t outstanding. If this restaurant was located in a more popular area it would be impossible to get a reservation - we can’t wait to return.
