At the risk of repeating myself (we dined at Fundamental last Saturday night too), dinner was absolutely delicious and the service was, once again, fabulous!
Second visit & will be back again for sure. Food was great and Duck special was phenomenal. Place is very tight for group of 5, but enjoyed the night. Service was extremely nice and attentive, but was a bit confused. Too many people working the same table (not in sync i.e asking same question 3 secs later) cleared plates before everyone was done eating and wee bit rushed. Very good meal and will be back for sure and highly recommend. One other note - first glass of wine pour extremely small for $18 glass.
We love going to Fundamental and this last visit did not disappoint. From the very friendly welcome, we sat at the counter (our request), delicious bubbles to start, chickpea fritters, cauliflower with a lime sauce - amazing. Our main courses were equally as good - and of course had to finish with the chocolate mousse! Double thumbs up, no doubt about it!
Excellent & varied menu; food was healthy, fresh, delicious, interesting. Staff was friendly, just attentive enough. Flexible with reservation time (we came 45 minutes early and were seated immediately). It was a bit chilly when people came though the front door, but hot tea took care of the temperature. Churros with caramel were divine!!!
Great evening with delicious food. Wine selection is different but very good.
Sat at the kitchen bar. Interesting to watch ones’ food being prepared. Very tasty food and good happy hour prices.
Excellent little gem of a restaurant in Westwood. Excellent food, wines and service. Check it out for sure. You will not be disappointing.
We hadn't been to Fundamental LA in some time, but remembered it well and it definitely has held up over the years - delicious, fresh food and a fun wine list. The somm was super helpful and not pretentious, and we enjoyed every dish we tried (the cornbread is to die for). It ended up around $50 per person, all in, so very reasonable. The place is trendy and bright, with light wood. The only issue was that it's not a big place, so when it's busy and they've got the music up LOUD (as they tend to), it can be a little hard to have conversations. Otherwise, a really fun westside spot.
The restaurant decor and ambiance is modern and pleasant. Service is cheerful and attentive. We reserved for 3 but were given counter seats. It was difficult to chat and share food sitting in a row in a noisy environment. Our server apologized and suggested that we request a table on our next reservation. The food is excellent---lots of delicious small plates as well as entrees. It's a good place for sharing dishes. It's not cheap but the food is reasonably priced in my opinion for what you get.
I came here on a date several occasions, now that things are official between my boyfriend and I. It has become one of our favorite spots for date nights. We love sharing their vegetarian dishes. Everything is phenomenal, especially the cauliflower!
Really friendly service. Delicious food and lovely wine selections. Highly recommend!
Great spot for a quite date. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our night here.
This was our first time here and we hit this restaurant on what I hope was just a really off night. It smelled like there was a situation in the kitchen, the food took forever to arrive and the staff couldn’t quite explain what was going on in an intelligent way. We’ll try again.
Food was good, priced for how it tasted. Wine was great - nice per glass options and a mix-and-match flight deal. Overall a very nice dining experience, not overly flashy - just the right touch.
Good food and staff. Interesting wines. Try and cornbread and the burger and the chopped salad!
