Our meal was fantastic! The staff were friendly and attentive but not pushy. Plus they were playing all the old skool jams your heart could want, our table was singing and vibing the entire night! I'm never disappointed when I come here and will definitely come again!

The food was great but the waiter was incredibly rude and visited our table a total of 5 times during the entire 2 hours there. We were initially delivered the wrong food and had to let another waiter know, no one came by to even address the mixup. Worst service I've experienced in quite a while!

Our waiter didn’t check on us unless we flagged someone else down to either make a request or ask for our waiter to come over. The food was good, which helped the experience. When we asked for the bill we had trouble receiving a bill with an itemized list of our order and as we waited our table was approached at least twice about finishing up/leaving, possibly to make room for the next reservation? It was a less than pleasurable experience.

I was visiting my son who lives in LA with my married daughter. We wanted a fun night out at a trendy restaurant in LA. The ambience was lovely but I thought the food was overpriced for what it was. I eat out a lot in Chicago at fine dining restaurants and I travel all the time and dine.
Your food was salty and the portions were small for the price.
It took me a few days to detoxify from the salt.
Sorry.

Don’t ever try this place ! Service is absolutely terrible, our waiter was in a rush to get us out of the restaurant, barely served us and gave us attitude at every interaction. The food is absolutely over-priced and mediocre at best. Drinks were nasty, which is deceiving as they have a rooftop terrace and this made us not want to continue our night there.


On top of all this, they also tried stealing my boyfriend’s phone after telling us multiple times that we didn’t leave the phone on the table (the manager was seen going and retrieve it from the valet next door after pretending that he knew nothing about this phone)

Waited an hour to be seated even though I had a reservation. Staff was nice but was unapologetic about the wait, even though it was an hour until we finally got seated. They’re BUSY but yet again, it’s always BUSY here. Maybe, they shouldn’t overbook. Food was delicious except for the vegetarian dishes.

I really enjoy the atmosphere and food at ep and lp. For a starter we had their take on ceviche, it was delicious, and the pork spare ribs. My girlfriend and I ordered the lobster noodles to share and were a bit disappointed to see the quantity of noodles you get with this dish. I understand receiving a small portion of lobster but compared their other noodle dishes it looked like we had ordered off the kids menu. I will definitely go back but pass $39 lobster noodles :(.

They don’t have enough staff and you are treated as if you are in a LA nightclub, rude and don’t really care. If you’re paying the ridiculous prices for the food, significantly better service is expected. The manager was mire like a bouncer - Saturday night sept 22nd. Go spend your $$$ somewhere else.

We celebrated my friend’s Birthday. The food was honestly not that great. The lobster garlic butter pasta was the only good items we ordered and we ordered the most popular items. The place was very over priced for the quality of food and ambiance. The upstairs Bar was very pretty and had a nice view. Definitely won’t go back to the restaurant but may go back to the bar.

I would not recommend this place for food. The rooftop bar is cool and the service was good. However, the food was so over salted and over spiced. I couldn’t even differentiate dishes because they were all very over-spiced. Plus, it was over priced for the quality. If I pay that much, I expect good food.

Skinny margarita couldn’t get done right two or three times. The red snapper fried fish was difficult to eat. Not enough knives given. The mary’s chicken OG was amazing. The Dan Dan noodles
Had way too much meat which i guess is good value but maybe took away from the fact it’s a noodle dish. Noisy but good crowd. Good looking people.

Honestly my 5th time to EPLP. ALWAYS LOVED the waitresses there. Bar tenders at the rooftop are always sweet. However, giving this a very low rating because of the hostesses.

Note to establishment, we typically come and spend tons of $$$ here and pop bottles to support the business. Your two hostesses gals last Friday night had AWEFUL attitudes, NOT nice, and had the nerves to look dead at your face an not respond to a question that was as simple as "would you like us to come back (we were early) or have us wait here?" -- as they hand signaled us to either go or stay -- no idea.

I'm appalled as the guys and gals downstairs at the door were always awesome. I would say the hostesses can make or break the face of your establishment. Make your guests feel welcomed. Its simple. Either this is poor management or bad employee screening. How did they even get the job?!

Service was horrendous. Server did not attend to our table for ten min, we had to flag down another server to take our order. I had to get out of my seat three times to chase down the server for service. What made it even worse was they had mandatory tip of 20%. I would not have tipped the server that much for barely any service. One of the host girls was also very rude. Upstairs bar was also unorganized. We wanted a table and they said they can only host a group of 4 and our party of 8 was rejected even tho we’re two groups of 4 and there was clearly a space big enough to accommodate that was open. Drinks are way overpriced. Will never return.

Took my family out for a birthday dinner. It was a large group, so we accepted a table with a great view of the rest of the city. The service was really slow for the first half of the meal, which is odd considering the restaurant had just opened. The busboy and water boy were attentive, but the waitress was continually lagging. Other waiters and servers were helpful, but ours was lagging. We finally figured out why later when, upon exiting, we observed her waiting on tables in the main dining room. There were several groups of equal size to my party, seated and eating in the main dining area. My group was considerably unhappy upon realizing that we had been seated in the bar, along with two other larger and equally unhip, unfashionable people. I would be tempted to come back and give them another chance, as the food was freaking delicious. I also want to see if I receive the same service from other waitstaff.

TL; DR: Amazing food, but be sure to ask to sit in the main dining room. Unhip, uncool people WILL be seated in the bar if you do not ask.

One of my favorite restaurants in l.a, came for Dine L.A to try out the new menu items. I was extremely skeptical once I saw the menu but when everything came! It was delicious, the mushrooms and veggie curry was surprisingly the best. Come for their regular menu also! The kakoda is delicious if you like raw fish, any of their noodles/seafood are worth a try.
