The food was tasty, but the dishes came out at odd times. Very disorganized kitchen

Wanted to love this place but the food is just meh. Lovely patio on very busy Sawtelle... we literally parked four blocks away. Wish they’d work out a deal with neighboring valet. Anyway, burratta salad drenched in way too much balsamic vinaigrette, trout that was good but came out lukewarm and mushroom toast that was pretty good... but that also came out lukewarm and under salted. The potato rolls were incredible though and my daughter liked her spaghetti and meatballs. I’d try it again.

The food was fantastic. Service was fine. Not overbearing, but perhaps could have been a little more attentive. The only true drawback of this place is no valet.

I normally don’t write out reviews, this may be an exception. It started out good, the restaurant was great looking, ivy on the front facade and fire place in the dining area. Placed our order, and it came in a timely manner.

Now the bad part, the appetizer of pull pork was okay, not spectacular. As for the entree’s, my wife ordered the salmon which was missing a component to the dish, which sold her on the dish. I ordered the lamb shank and polenta....lacking in flavor. The lamb was tender but needed some salt and pepper and maybe some thyme and oregano. The polenta was tasteless, again some additions would be great.

We brought the missing component of the dish to be waiter and they apologized (nothing comped...not even dessert).

11:15 am on a Saturday. Table for 4. We sat in the outdoor patio. Great food, great service. Place was a bit empty which takes away from the atmosphere. I would recommend this place for brunch for sure.

Very homey casual place with an interesting menu. Service was a bit absent-minded due to the Friday night crowd, but pleasant. The outdoor seating is a real plus.

This was my first time at Flores and Sons. I liked the ambiance very much. We sat outside on the patio, which was very pleasant. The food was delicious. We had the fried chicken and biscuits as well as the chicken under a brick plus the glazed carrots with yogurt sauce. All were tasty. Service was very friendly, but perhaps a little too stretched, so towards the end we had to wait a while for the check and to go box. I would definitely return. It would be nice for a large group or event too!

Pros - sat outside in enclosed patio so no street noise or view...felt like sitting in a garden. Dogs allowed and one was right next to us, but no issues there we are both dog lovers. Food portions large, and tasty. Pricing similar to greater LA area.

Cons - nowhere to park and no valet parking. We had to park (illegally) in another lot and hoped that we wouldn't get towed. Very busy area with many restaurants so this could be an issue.

The waitresses kept asking us if we wanted to box up the rest of the meal before we were finished eating/talking. Finally we realized that they were closing until dinner time and wanted us to leave. I did not realize they would be closing or would not have gone there. The waitress informed me that the times were posted on the website.

The food was ok, nothing special.

My chicken was too salty to eat. The asparagus was also overly spiced. Too much salt and pepper! The quinoa tasted odd. My guests enjoyed their Asian chicken salad. The service was lousy too. Couldn't get the server's attention as I sat there dying of thirst - due to the inedible chicken - and no water on the table.

Asked to sit outside once there was an opening, was told they were not planning on cleaning the table off. No busers that day. We were told that if we wanted to eat outside, we needed to come back the following week. Had plans so we couldn't find another place to eat. Ordered the bottomless mimosas and I had to get up to go get a refill. Terrible anniversary celebration.

We went for my Boyfriend's birthday, which happened to be during the July 2017 Dine LA. The food was amazing. For Dine LA the portions were huge. I don't like tomatoes usually, but it was Dine LA and we're fing adults, so try it again right? I had their caprese salad and the tomatoes were delicious!
We tried the pulled pork toasts and ribs as well, both were so good!
Their BBQ sauce had ginger as the spice note, which was a welcome Asian twist, fits the surrounding Japantown neighborhood.
We met some friends for dinner, none of us had ever been there and all of us want to go back, stuff ourselves, then explore the neighborhood.
One note about Open Table, we updated our reservation, the update wasn't sent to the restaurant. They were able to graciously accommodate us, but the site should communicate with them in real time.

I ate here for the first time for DineLA, and the lunch was hearty and delicious, with full-size portions on the DineLA menu, which I really appreciated. The king salmon was tender and flavorful and I highly recommend the shishito peppers when they are in season. Service was a bit slow, but we were not in a hurry so it was fine. We were able to meet and chat with the owner, who was gracious and warm.

Came here for lunch during DineLA July 14-28 with a friend. We ordered the spinach and gruyer pie, asparagus, wild King salmon and Asian chicken salad. Everything was delicious especially the salmon and asparagus! Service was great too! Sat in the small patio in this beautiful weather.

It's nice to have this sort of place in a neighborhood over-run with Asian cuisine. Not that I don't enjoy Asian food, but this is so different and I love the outdoor patio and porch!

Super yummy and in a great location right on Sawtelle. They were light on vegetarian options and unfortunately their online menu hadn't been recently updated so I wasn't able to order the item I thought I wanted but the tomato and peach caprese was to die for. Overall, we had a great time sitting on the patio (next to the sidewalk but blocked by a wooden wall and vines) and enjoying out happy hour beers and snacks.

First of all, for brunch they accept reservations until 1:30pm but their kitchen closes at 1:45 so if you're making a late reservation make sure everyone is on time and they get their order in before the clock runs out. Drinks stop at 2:30 and they close at 3:00. I felt a bit rushed. The bartender was great but the server had to be flagged down for menus, to take our orders and for refills (even on the tea). She was quick to tell us when our time for "bottomless" drinks was up at 2:25. We were a table of 8 and there were a few other groups dining which proved to be a lot for the one cook. Food came out slowly, one at a time and we had to ask for our sides as they seemed to have been forgotten. As for the food, we loved the chicken! The regular chicken & waffles comes with a wing and drumstick. There is a chicken breast option that comes with fried eggs...I wasn't able to substitute for scrambled. Steak and eggs were above average. We weren't a fan of the salads. Brunch drink options are mimosas and sake bloody marys (we didn't try them). When the bill came we were told they would only accept up to 4 cards. It wasn't an issue but it would've been good to know going in. Go for the food and atmosphere but don't expect great service if you are seated outside. Might be a better option for happy hour than brunch.

Love this place. Wish they had a full bar (only serve beer and wine). Food is always good (fried chicken, brussels sprouts are amazing). Valet doesn't start until 6:30pm but there is parking around the back. Dogs are welcome on the front patio.

The food was lacking flavor. We tried the lamb shank, seafood salad, and maple Brussels sprouts. The Brussels sprouts were on the sweet side but had the most flavor of all the dishes.
Don't order the lamb shank. It didn't have any flavor! Definitely not worth it!
The seafood salad comes with a raw oyster on the half shell. The menu said fried oyster but they confirmed it was a mistake.

Overall...I thought it would be a nice place to go on a date but neither of us liked the food.

Classic case of ambiance was wayyyyy better than the taste of the food

This is perhaps the only American cuisine restaurant left on Sawtelle. I enjoy the food, the fried chicken is the best I've ever had. I wish he menu were changed more frequently, but the food is tasty.
The servers are slow and not very helpful. They recommend whatever without being honest. You can over-order and they would just keep taking the order.
I love their patio with a fire-pit. Very cozy and romantic.

Went for DineLA. Our waiter Andrew was fun and friendly.
The apple burrata salad was delicious as are their buns with maple butter. I ordered the ribs, but unfortunately they were dry and not even extra BBQ sauce helped make chewing them any easier. When Andrew cane to ask us how everything was I told him about the ribs and he went to ask and get a different rack. He came back and said they would all be the same if I thought they were dry. He offered to let me try something else, so I ordered the pappardelle with mushrooms which was delicious and earthy. My friends got the trout and they were very happy with their choice. Dessert was good, I got the chocolate brownie which was super chocolatey and dark with whipped cream melting all over it ( wish it was vanilla bean ice cream ), so rich even I couldn't finish the whole ramekin. One friend had the berry cobbler which was also tasty and one had the donut, we don't think it was completely cooked and hard to break apart.
So except for the ribs and the donut a very good meal.
