I had a reservation for 845pm and we did not get seated until 930pm. They told us to wait by the bar but it was extremely crowded and not safe for waiters walking by with plates of food.

The worst food ever. The King Pap chicken was not white meat, was very sinewy, and overly spiced soy hat it was too hot to eat. Sever was catatonic. Drinks very overpriced. Only good thing about this place is the rooftop view.

Server was very lackadaisical – like she did not want to be there. Food was terribly salty and overly spicy. Manager Brandon would not ask the chef to re-cook the salty dishes or offer to exchange the dishes for another option. Asked Manager but he refused to take any $$$ off the bill for a very unsatisfactory experience. Rooftop is great for drinks but skip the frustration and dreadful food of the restaurant. They really don't care about customer service or experience

we came here to celebrate my engagement with girlfriends, after being seated, our waiter didn't come to our table for over 25 minutes, not even to say hello and offer water, so we walked out. I would not return. The service was not even terrible as it was inexistent.

The restaurant wasn't even half full at the time of our arrival. Despite of that they seated us by the kitchen completely removed and away from other people. It was a very sad experience and quite frankly very humiliating as if they didn't want us to dine with the rest. Just because you hire models as hostesses it does not mean that they actually know anything about hosting.

I had a rsvp for a birthday dinner for 6 people. I needed to add one more person and when I called to request that the hosted was very snobby about it saying she could not add one more person to the table and that I would have to move my reservation to almost 10pm which is pretty late for a dinner. I kept my reservation for 6 however we didn't get the table till past 10pm!! so not only I was no able to invite one more for my bday celebration but we had to eat very late and service was slow. In general the service staff host and at entrance are super snobby which is pretty lame. Is just a restaurant for god's sake. Places in NYC, Japan, or even london are not as snobby as this one with much better service. Not sure if I would come back or recommend.

The beef (twice) short rib was the BEST pot roast I have ever had. It was cooked to perfection and the secret sauce that went with it made the most unbelievable compliment to the entree. That alone was worth any drive. I plan on coming back again with others so they can try the food. My highest compliments to the chef and culinary team for their work. Our server was great, too. Awesome bar scene with an amazing view on the roof. Would highly recommend.

Thanks EP + LP!

The food is unique - a nice change of pace in LA where menus are more predictable. Some of the dishes are better than others. The ceviche is outstanding. It's always fun there and lots to look at. Great bar and cocktails.

Since our last visit to EP & LP, the quality of the food has fallen off a cliff. This used to be one of the best restaurants in LA. But our dinner was both boring and poorly served. We went with the Chef's menu: 4 courses of the kitchen's choosing. The ribs might have been good (as they were in the past), but were served luke warm. The rest - hamachi crudo, snapper, and jidori chicken - were utterly dull. The hamachi was lathered in an overly sweet syrup. The snapper was also served too cool. The chicken was the cheapest big dish on the menu - I was angry that the kitchen took advantage of our trust to send that out instead of something more interesting, like a curry or short rib. (You can get better chicken at Popeye's.) Two sides (spicy cucumbers and a veggie medley) were more of the same dull. And to top it off, even my old fashioned was second rate. Service was friendly enough, and the rooftop bar is a great scene, and the wine list has improved - but the food was so boring, and such a huge step backward since last time, that we will not return.

Surprisingly good Thai food. Because it's such a scene I was expecting the food to be ok. But we ended up loving our meal. I especially liked that it was shareable family style instead of shareable small plates. My friend and I got the sticky spare ribs, Grandma Fijian's chicken curry and the vegetable fried rice. They were delicious, especially the spare ribs. It was a perfect amount of food. We even had leftovers. The frozen Aperol Spritz was perfect for a hot summer night. Definitely go get a drink at the rooftop bar before or after dinner. Overall it was a fun night.

This is the 3rd time I've gone to EP + LP for dinner. This time brining a group of girlfriends in from out of town. Made a reservation for 8:30pm, got there 5 minutes before my reservation. Made my way to the "hostess" area, where I was met by 2 lackadaisical women who gave me the run around for 15 minutes (and actually flat out lied about my table being "wiped off right now"). Once seated, in the bar area, although I made a reservation for a table, our food service was poor. I ordered the oysters and veggie fried rice. Our order was not put in properly, items were missing, etc. Following dinner, we went to the rooftop which was just fine. Following my entire experience at EP + LP, maybe 1-2 hours after, I became violently ill and spent the early AM hours in the ER due to severe gastric distress and abdominal pain as a result of my wonderful meal. I won't be back.

This was my second time at EP & LP. This time I was with my carnivorous friends while the last time was with a pescatarian. Seriously, not one complaint. Such incredibly great food and flavors. No one was disappointed. The only comment I will make is the server should have let us know the portions for the ceviche were and are really small. Definitely not enough for 4 ppl. We needed 2 orders. Anyway- I will be back!

Took them 15mins to seat us even with reservations. Our server didn't seem like he wanted to be there. We did the Ultimate E.P. Experience. The chef started us off with the Kakoda. I know it's family style but they only put out two bowls for $50 a head you'll think they'd give you individual plates"/ then we had some egg roll that you wrap in lettuce. It was delicious but we only got one each😑 Then we got Chiang Mai Larb. It was good. Then we got Lou Dogg's Crispy Skin Chicken. We were not a big fan of it, super salty. Then we got Stir Fried Cali Veggies and a bowl of rice. Which to us we were wondering why we didn't get the rice with the ribs or chicken.. We get it at the end with veggies, wtf? I honestly think they forgot to give it to us then brought it out at the end🙄 Then we had a mango pudding with roasted coconut and ice cream. Flavors didn't blend so well. Long story short, Not worth the money. Expensive, Small portions, unhappy server, left hungry still🤦🏻‍♂️.. To be honest, when we left we went to Mc Donald's🍟. L.P is nice, beautiful view, great drinks but super crowded. Couldn't move, couldn't sit, so we left👎🏽
