E.P.+ L.P. Ratings and Reviews
We had to wait for our table for like 40minutes after our reservation. They just had us stand by the bar and wait until a table became available, but the place was so crowded that that meant standing in the middle of a walkway and being awkwardly jostled every 5 seconds and not even being able to place an order with the bartender who was blocked by rows of unmoving patrons. Once we finally were seated, the service was speedy and the food was delicious.
Valentine’s Day menu did not state it was $99 per person, for 1 course, meaning $400 for 2 couples. Food was overly acidic and gave us stomach problems. When asked for regular glass of champagne at the bar I come to find on the bill they brought out a $25 glass of Veuve. Overall terrible Valentine’s day experience for $615.
Absolutely fantastic. My girlfriend and i hadn’t been here and came for Valentines Day. It was an amazing dinner, among the best we’ve ever had. The service was excellent, drinks were great and it was a very fun night. All items on the price fixe menu were delicious. I’d definitely return here and strongly recommend it...only issue is that it’s pricey, but there are other pricey restaurants where food quality isn’t nearly as good as here. Highly recommend this for others.
This review is for the EP restaurant.
My husband and I went out for date night (one of our last ones before the baby arrives), and had a very unpleasant time. I've been here before for a friend's birthday dinner, and I remember enjoying the food and the ambience. But tonight, the food was mediocre (fried white fish was super salty), and the service was below decent.
We saw our server, Meisha, a total of 3 times during our dinner: once to take our drink order, once to take our dinner order, and last to give us our check. When we asked for recommendations, she carelessly scribbled on our menu, even making a hole. (The menu doubles as a place mat.) It took her 10 mins to come back to our table to take our order. (The place was not at all busy.) Also, never did she once come check up on our meal.
It doesn't stop there. The table next to us was in very close proximity to ours, and our server squeezed in between, with her back to us and her apron ribbon hanging over our table, to take their order. There was plenty of space on the other end of their table, so I don't know why she insisted on squeezing into that little space to take orders. (This happened more than once.) My husband and I just looked at each other in disbelief.
We were so neglected by our server that the person who took away our empty dishes asked if we'd like to see a dessert menu.
I don't think we'll be returning here, and I'm sad that our pre-valentines day dinner was ruined by our server.
We had a 7:45 pm reservation and were not seated until nearly 8:45. While the manager offered (and did) buy us one round of drinks for the inordinate delay, the drinks sat at the bar another 15 minutes after they were made before they were finally brought over. When we were seated we were give a table in the crowded bar where one of was constantly getting jostled. The food was good but won’t be coming back.
Food was excellent (I mean truly delicious), and the servers were great. Ambiance was fine--nothing to write home about but quite lovely. Acknowledging here that in many circumstances, the taste of the food is the most important to many people, I have to say that what wasn't great is that we were seated at the bar despite having made a reservation. Usually, I LOVE bar seating, but not if I'm trying to catch up with multiple old friends I haven't seen in some time. We explained that we had a reservation and that my friends had driven up from San Diego to visit and that we'd like to face each other if possible (party of 3). The restaurant was moderately busy eventually, but almost every table on our side was empty when we made this request. We were told tables were reserved for parties of 4 shortly before seeing a party of 3 seated right behind us. Which is to say--if you're making a reservation in advance specifically to be able to spend time with someone special, this is not the place.
Horrible Service and Below Average Food at EP Restaurant
Awkward and impersonal entry process where you need to show ID to a bouncer. We tried to find a spot at the bar to wait for the rest of our party but couldn't get the bartender's attention for a drink. After being seated we spent 15-20 minutes waiting for our waitress to take our drink orders despite the fact the restaurant isn't busy yet. Since the wait was so long we were ready to order food at the same time we ordered drinks but she had us hold on and said she would come back later to take our food orders. After another 10-15 minute wait to get our drinks we finally were able to get our food orders in which was simply the chef's choice for the table.
After putting in our order for food we didn't see our waitress the rest of the night until she delivered the check. We had several problems with dishes: the steamed mussels didn't have any mussels in them. They delivered a single serving of crab soup meant for another table and the sticky short ribs came out cold. The bad service continued as one of the bus boys interrupted us to ID the food runner who delivered the crab soup that wasn't supposed to be delivered. After finishing up the slow and terrible service, the waitress shows up to deliver the check at the same time dessert is being served. We put our cards down immediately as everyone was eager to leave at this point but the waitress had already walked away obliviously. After finishing dessert we continued to wait for the check and cards to be picked up to be processed. When they were finally returned to us, the hostess came by literally as the credit cards were still being put back in the wallet to tell us we had exceeded the 2-hour maximum time per reservation and they would need the table. This was incredible to us given the tremendous amount of time we had spent waiting on the staff at the table only to have the hostess kick us off the table, essentially blaming us for the delays.
Service is pretty good. Although the food menu is different, some of the items on the menu are not worth the price. The dessert menu really needs to be updated. I’ve been here multiple times and would only go back again for the rooftop vibe rather than dinner.
Had some friends in town and knew this would be a hit. I had been once before and loved it, I would just say that service is on the slow side however it is very good service and I understand the staff is BUSY. I have to say that I would consistently recommend this establishment for the food and the experience of the rooftop.
I have never been blown away by fried rice but there is something special going on here. Almost spongy. Not too salty. Magic. The cocktails are careful and creative. The service is spot on. The place can get packed so come around 630. The fried chicken is popular but skip it. Try the sashimi appetizer in a coconut sauce that will have you drinking it out of the damn bowl. That sauce. That haunting sauce. I’m thinking of it all the time. Perfect for date night and for landing the deal. Don’t bring the Kids.
Reservations were at 9, we didn’t get seated til
915. Then it too the server another 15 minutes to actually come to our table. Once the server came the ball got rolling and everything was fine. I wanted to sit at a table but I guess only bar seating was open, even tho we had a reservation. I guess. The place was really nice and I’m sure I’ll visit the establishment again. However I don’t think I’ll be eating. Just for drinks
We had reservations at 8:30 and it was pretty busy by that time. There was a line down the street when we left. I honestly don't understand why. The food was pretty good but nothing impressive about it; it was really expensive for the quality and portion sizes. Went to the bar to wait a few minutes for our table and a mixed drink and a standard glass of scotch was 45ish dollars. I have no problem paying high prices for great quality and/or presentation but there was nothing particularly impressive about this place. To top it off, the waiter barely paid any attention to us. Never came by for refills, took 15 minutes to give us the check after we were finally able to get his attention. The dessert was really good though and the rooftop bar was cool, nice view, room to walk around. I don't think I'd ever go back for the restaurant but maybe for the bar to meet up before going elsewhere.
It was a young crowd so if you’re 30+ don’t go here unless you want to be around insecure 20-somethings trying to be cool and not quite pulling it off. The hostess was unhelpful and seemed pretty ambivalent about seating us for our reservation, not providing any direction which prompted me to ask what we should do while we wait for our whole party to arrive at which point she was like oh ya you can stand here. “Here” was the main entry way to the restaurant and not a place to stand and wait. The one item I wanted on the menu was not available as the kitchen had run out by 8:30pm. There was no room behind my chair and every server brushed by me, bumping me with their bodies the entire night. The bathrooms were super dirty and the food was unremarkable. Waste of money.
SO much fun!
The crowd is super diverse, young, old, weird and sassy all showed up for the buzz and hype that surrounds EP.LP. We had not trouble booking a reservation day of, it was about $100 for two people including appetizers and drinks. The chef is trustworthy and fresh, recreating the menu seasonally to keep guests on their toes. It's a great place to start or end your night, the venue itself is beautiful and the rooftop bar is the perfect addition. Can't wait to come back and try more things on the menu! The cuisine is similar to Mission Chinese in NY and SF but more upscale and very LA. PS: we saw so many cute couples! Bring your date if you go here!
Food was very nice, but stupidly over-priced. I mean – even for LA. We're talking $29 for a main course. For that kind of money, I want phenomenal food. And it wasn't. It was very good, but I still felt feeling ripped off.
A trendy place for the instagram generation to be seen. If that's what you value – knock yourself out. And wear your designer frames.
We had the chicken, vegetable fried rice and a spicy noodle dish. We also had 3 types of dessert the white chocolate with peanuts, the citrus dessert that was not on the menu and they gave me the coconut sorbet for my birthday. My husband just had knee surgery, walks with a cane and their elevator was not working. My husband had to climb 2 flights of stairs to get to the restaurant. The manager was very accommodating and profusely apologized for the inconvenience and comped the desserts for the inconvenience . The service was superb, never had to request drink refills (busboys were right there), all of the server's recommendations were spot on. The food was fabulous and we are planning to go back with about 12 of our friends for lunch sometime next weekend.
