Love coming back to this place. The food, the service, and ambiance. I couldn't ask for anything else. Keep it up Fooq's!

We were there on a Sunday evening at 6:30 so the restaurant was pretty empty, which was fine with us. The food was delicious and the staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu items. The only thing to note is that on Sundays they serve the brunch menu all day, which I was unaware of, so the menu items were limited. It was still a great introduction to the restaurant and we plan to return to try the full menu.

The food is so different yet super amazing. It’s Persian with a French and Italian twist. I’m Persians and live in Los Angeles and I have to admit I have never tasted Persian food like this and we don’t have anything like it in LA. Everything tastes amazing. I went in after work with a girlfriend and had to go back the next day with another friend because it was that tasty and good. It’s a farm to table restaurant so everything is also fresh. The service is also excellent.

Made reservations for party of 4 for Sunday brunch on the same day. The place is small, cozy, quaint, and full of charm. After half of us were there, we learned an additional 2 were joining us. The waitress was very accommodating and was able to fit us all in the existing table since there were no other larger tables available. She was amazing all throughout our time there. I tried the hummus (red beans), the bacon egg and cheese sandwich, and the French toast (they use challah bread) and it was all delicious. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. Will be going back to try other dishes!

The stracciatella was amazing. I wasn’t sure my husband would enjoy the Persian-French cuisine but I think he liked it better than I did. Will definitely go back. The neighborhood is a little questionable but the restaurant is worth the trip.

Fooq's staff is incredibly attentive and kind. The layout, aesthetic and ambiance of the restaurant allowed for a pleasant, warm and inviting experience. The food is a well-executed blend of different cultural influences that works together so well it creates something new and so unique. The special occasion was my partner's birthday and she nor I nor the rest of our dinner guests were disappointed. Looking forward to another Sunday dinner here in the future.

Very loud and small restaurant where you are sitting right next to others that are not in your party. That along with the loud music and everyone screaming to talk, doesn’t make a good environment to talk to others. Food is so so especially for the price charged. Lastly, for a party of 2 they add 18% tip already to your check?!?! I would caution others to find a better place to eat

Delicious food.. must tries were the hummus, stracciatella, and a the dessert with a white chocolate cream sauce. We were out for a theater night and had dinner reservations pre-show. The ambiance was low key yet energetic and the service was great!

Really great ambiance and service. Persian dishes were delicious. Fish was fresh and the marinated Lima beans and onions with it was exquisite. Didn't love the buccatini, nothing special. I'll be going back for the ghormeh sabzi tho.

I made a reservation with 4-5 days in advance, specifically stating that I was going with a baby. We were assigned a table outside, really noisy, uncomfortable smell...

Having said that, the food was really good and ambiance inside seems pretty nice and cozy.

Gone downhill.
Food was just too weird exotic and over spiced. Really enjoyed this restaurant a year ago but not so good this time. Also since every item on the menu is quite unusual it would be really make sense to include descriptions of each.

There was a great Persian new years eve dinner (family style) the night we dined at Fooq's. The staff and chefs celebrated the night by describing the meal and reciting poetry. It was a wonderful experience and I hope they repeat it next year and notify their core patrons in advance.
