I reserved EP for an 8 PM date with a reservation that explicitly said ‘Table for 2’ and yet when I arrived we were given seating on the counter. Upon further inquiry, we were told that ‘seating is not guaranteed’. It took them about 40 minutes before we actually got a table. The hostess seemed to be stalling us and was not upfront about the seating situation. Our waiter and the food was great but the disrespectful wait to get a table left a sour taste in our mouths.

Food is not that great here, the bar is better but the drinks are weak, low quality alcohol is used. Slow service, recommend going early if you want to get in. If you are anything other then white get a reservation as the door man is biased and will hassle you getting in.

We had a great time - have not been in H-Wood in a while, and it is always good to people watch, overhear ridiculous conversation, and sample some great drinks.

Food was amazing - and the Boba cocktail looks cool and packs a punch. The DJs were pretty good on Sat PM, and there was a good mix of old, new, blind dates, H-wood types, and others on the roof after dinner. Would definitely recommend, especially if you enjoy food from a variety of Asian cultures.

Cheers

It was my fiancées birthday dinner so I made the reservation for 8:30 PM counter seating. Unfortunately when I got there they didn’t even have the counter ready and sat us in the standard seating, rather than asking if we’d like to wait. The server was really nice, but after he took our order we didn’t really see him after until it was time to pay. He did not check up on us nor did he bother to ask if everything was fine with our meal. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was delicious, but the service was not the best.

I went in with high expectation for a meal that would leave me amazed. Instead I left amazed that a waiter could less understanding in finding things to less than adequate. First to explain that EP LP does not honor requests for counter seating or table seating. We had to ask the Maître d’ to reseat us at a table where she explained requesting on open table doesn’t effect the restaurant and that it is first come first serve. (There were around 10 open tables we walked by before being lead to the counter and I asked for a change)

Once seated at a table. (Right next to their service station and back side of the bar on the second level. Our server came over and explained that it’s family style and that he recommended dishes. We ordered drinks (basil Hayden old fashioned , and a Thai beer. The drinks came and we ordered our meal. ( I finished my cocktail in 3 sips, it was quite small, especially for an old fashioned ) the Ceviche was a delicious coconut milk and tomato sauces kompachi mix , and though it was Described as a “small plate” it was not something I would recommend sharing with full grown adults. It was quite petite served on a dish no bigger than a coffee cup saucer. Next we got another small plate of spare ribs that was sweet like a traditional Mandarin style spare rib but diced in small chunks. We ordered a second round of drinks ( same drinks only the old fashion came with ice over pouring the top of the glass which made me wonder... what was actually in the cup. I proceed to pull the ice out of the cup to reveal that the drink was no more than approximately 1 1/2 - 2 oz total of liquids left in a very small tumbler no more than 6-8 ounce glass) our next two dishes come, a short rib “large plate” and fries rice. The short rib was a portion that most delicatessens would call a single serving, not large nor one to share with two grown adults and the rice was just ok. Our serve was rude when I asked about the drink size and make negative responses.

While most people come here for the nighlife and rooftop lounge action, we came to try the food, and were left amazed and speechless. We opted for the chef's tasting menu, which at $50, can not be beat! This menu gave us 6 good size servings and an excellent blend of the various flavors offered at EP.

I’m local to the area and I had been to EP+LP before and we had a great dining experience.this time ,even though we had a reservation we got seated at the bar.Thw Australian (or New Zealander )hostess was very dismissive and she kept calling me the wrong name even when she called to confirm the reservation.Our waiter on the other hand was very pleasant and helpful.
The food was excellent as usual but the noise level at the bar was awful and I could barely have a conversation.
I don’t understand why we didn’t have a table even with a reservation and I think from now on I’ll just go up to the rooftop bar.Even though the food is very good,it’s not a pleasant experience if you have to sit at the bar and can’t bear the person next to you.

I was disappointed in the dining room. Thinking the
Restaurant had an open air component, I was disappointed to find a rather stuffy room no good views of anything. Our waiter acted like he was a busboy - delivered and cleared but gave no intro to the restaurant nor talked about the menu, just got our order. Then, after we had clearly ordered more than enough food for the table, he suggested we add a $66 steak item. I prefer a place that is more concerned with the patron experience than upselling. And I expect professional service when I’m paying fine dining prices. On the other hand, the upstairs is fantastic with great atmosphere and views. Won’t return for dinner. May go back for drinks or a rooftop movie.

Asked them to provide a birthday dessert, but when they brought out the dessert that I ordered they completely forgot to add any birthday decoration, just brought out a sad looking plain scoop of white ice cream. Then when I told the waitress that I had requested a birthday dessert, she just brought out an un-lit candle. It was so disappointing.

Waited 30 min post reso time to be sat. After making reso for standard table and for bday was offered high top in bar. Service slow—took about 10 min for server to come to table after water poured. But the food is insane good. The vibe of restaurant is fun and energetic. Once we ordered food came out fast. Server checked on us. But wasn’t memorable. We waited awhile after eating our dessert ordered for a bday ice. Team. Not sure why it didn’t come w dessert. And instead waited. Overall good, but could have been better. Food is what saved it

Ep&LP has a fun atmosphere and I love the roof bar. The food unfortunately was terrible, very salty and we ordered the lamb with lettuce cups and it was so tough. The short ribs were also tough. Very disappointing I really wanted to like the place. We went there for dinner and were sat at a high table, very uncomfortable and not what you’d expect when booking a table.

Never in my life have I experienced worse service. We had reservations at 19:30, and arrived at exactly 19:45 (we tried to call to let them know we were running late, but no answer). We got information that our table was lost and that we could wait at LP the bar and they would call us. However, they could not estimate how long we would have to wait. We asked several times what was going on but they couldn't tell us anything. After two hours (!!) they had a table for us. However, we left after we saw that they wanted to seat us at a table for 3 (we were 4). Went to shake shack in stead, which I can highly recommend. Great food, good service, and a lot more fun.

Overall the experience was very disappointing. We arrived on time had to check in three times twice downstairs and once upstairs. The hostess was very rude and unpleasant. She decided to put us in a corner table practically inside the kitchen and behind the bar. When I asked for a different table, her attitude was the most unpleasant I've ever had in a restaurant except for Pump. The food was basic, it had no taste, the short ribs were dry and the veggies seem to be pulled from a frozen bag of birds eye and thrown in chicken broth. Overall it was one the most underwhelming and unpleasant experiences I have ever had at restaurant. We left and went to get burgers unfortunately and they tasted a million times better than anything in the menu. It was expensive and yet not worth the price. I will not be going back.
