We had tickets to the Odyssey theater and randomly selected this restaurant and was
very surprised at how wonderful our experience was. The food was fantastic - the
caprese salad and avocado tower appetizer were 2 of the best dishes I have had. Really
Our lamb shank was tender and flavorful and the trout was also very good. We will definitely come back again - even without theater tickets!
After multiple visits, this Valentine’s Day dinner was a huge disappointment. A busy restaurant should not mean poor service. After being seated for several minutes, we had to ask the host to get our waiter and asked for water. We then placed our order and asked the server for water. Our appetizers were delivered and We then asked another server for water twice. We then asked another server for water and finally received some. We ordered roasted sea bass and a side of asparagus. To our surprise, the sea bass was served with asparagus in addition to the side of asparagus. In addition the sea bass was fried not roasted.
To their credit, the server removed 3 dishes that we were dissatisfied with.
But it was a disappointing experience - especially for a special Valentine’s Day.
Good food, pretty ambiance
Their poke is not just your average basic poke that all restaurants have, but actually really good (and big!). The other sides we ordered were also really good—the mushroom toast! The king salmon was the best main course we ordered and perfectly cooked.
The only turn off was there metal tables tops because when eating on them it smell like pure metal rust. Not so pleasant to smell.
Good food and portions are huge. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. The Corn on the cob is really good, not your typical corn on the cob and try it for sure!
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).
The food was mediocre at best. My friend had to send her meal back and it still come out slimy.
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.
Attentive, friendly service, good food and sat outside by the fire pit and heaters, about 58 degrees and felt warm
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!
Dog-Friendly and great comfort food nothing else needs to be said
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.
Nice patio. Food was delicious and attractively plated. Portions were large. Service was friendly. Great casual spot in the middle of Ramen Row.
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.
This was my first time here and it was a great experience. Nice atmosphere. The food was very good. I will definitely go back.
Came during DineLa week. Food was delicious. Service was great. And they are very generous on the portions.
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!
Great ambience - intimate and inviting. Food is really tasty too. Would totally go back.
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.
I wouldn't recommend this spot. Server was sweet. Food was tasteless and expensive. They tacked in a 20 percent service fee for a party of sic when only five people ate. A waste of a dinkng experience.
