Very innovative food. Service was outstanding. The noise level is a bit high, so it’s not easy for conversation. Parking is awful. Don’t drive unless you have to.

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.

いつも宿泊しているホテルから近く、週末になると道に列ができるので、気になっていました。
オープンキッチンの見えるレストランでスタッフのみなさんはキビキビ動いていて無駄がありません。アジア料理も日本人の口に合い、味付けも素晴らしく、また利用したいと思いました。

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.

The Asian chicken and waffles were to dieeee for.

Me and my girlfriend(@homesbyale) love this place! For starters it has two levels - the restaurant and the rooftop bar. Both venues carry a consistent feel, but unique ambiances. We are never disappointed here. To start everything off and get a feel for the place we recommend the Kokoda Ceviche, it may not be the traditional ceviche you know and love but it is an amazing dish that will have you asking for more. We dined at the restaurant and tried the items on their DineLA menu during our most recent trip. We ordered the Lemongrass and Pepper wings which bring an amazing style and flavor to lemon pepper wings. These paired with the sweet and sour sauce are definitely a must try combo. We followed this up with an order of Dan Dan Noodle plate and immediately wanted seconds! The pork in these noodles makes the dish extremely savory and delicious. The DineLA menu is great for trying several dishes - whats great about this place is that they also offer a similar option (a bit pricier) when the DineLA option is not available. We definitely recommend this place - the drinks are great too! Dont be afraid to try a variety of options, I didnt know I would enjoy Mezcal so much , or the "bad medicine" drink. Thank you to all the staff at E.P. + L.P.

Cantaloupe juice was very refreshing. The mushroom brown rice bowl is very flavorful and great textures from the mushrooms and crispy rice. The chicken & waffles was also good but the waffle could have been crispier. Dinela brunch menu included a little taste of dessert and both the coconut sorbet and fruit were very fresh.

Our meal was excellent with inspired combinations of asian spices on items like eggplant in 'umami' broth, fire-roasted broccolini with a roasted coconut and chili topping. The freeze dried berries sprinkled on the pineapple swirl whipped cream dessert crunch like meringue and explode with flavor - an inspired riff on a pavlova.

The dedication to asian ingredients can go to far, the bar wasted two gin and tonics before they found a 'far eastern' imported tonic that wasn't flat. The problem is that barman left it to the customer to find out.

The nosie level is high which probably is OK for the 'here-to-be-seen' crowd but does does detract from the experience.

I am reviewing the restaurant.

Before we even got seated, when we arrived on the second level, the hostess was just on her phone and didn't seat us right away. Maybe she didn't see us? But we were right in front of her and had to get her attention after a 5 or so minutes of being completely ignored to get seated. Not a great start.

We went around 6p on a Friday - there was absolutely no other guests in the restaurant. Despite this, no one gave us water for a good 10 minutes. The server was very standoffish, barely made eye contact with us when talking with us. It took a while to get anyone's attention when we needed something - even though we were the only ones there (at least for half of our meal)!! I can't imagine what it would be like if it was packed.

The food was OK. We did the dineLA menu. Not even worth the dineLA prices in my opinion. Definitely would not come for the regular prices. Nothing special.

Then, the dineLA dinner $29 pp, however, they tried to charge us $97 total... hello??? You literally had to add 2 numbers!! We didn't even order anything else. Were they trying to get more money out of us? Possibly. But how annoying! They fixed it and apologized but on top of everything, it was pretty irritating.

Also really loud and can't have a decent conversation.

TLDR: OK food, but really it’s knock off asian fusion with a steep price tag that does not reflect quality. Otherwise, price and service would definitely deter me from coming back.

I didn’t appreciate the treatment we received from the start. First off the restaurant was empty since it was a Monday night there were about 3 tables seated and the host decided that it would be great if he put us in between the only other 2 diners there... I kindly asked if we could be seated somewhere else and he sighed and suggested a booth. Even after that I showed him I was very thankful that he allowed us to move. Our server came and he was quite nice but seemed very removed. Not engaging at all. We asked him what he recommends on the menu since it was our first time and all said was “honestly everything on the menu is great”. Customer service is very important to me since it can ruin a whole experience no matter how great the food. Which the food was very photogenic but nothing crazy that I haven’t had at other restaurants anyway. So I probably wouldn’t return

If I could base my review on the food alone, it would be stellar. But my experience having a reservation for 3 during brunch was quite the opposite due to the unbelievably terrible service.

We were sat at the bar for some reason, even with a reservation. I could tell that was a bad sign. The sever/bartender took a bit but eventually greeted us and after an awkward interaction got our drink order
