Food and interior design of restaurant are amazing! I would recommend servers with more knowledge and experience of the high quality food and drinks. The music selection was also too clubby for the atmosphere. This restaurant could be a 5 star restaurant with a few adjustments. Thanks MoreOpenTable Diner -

Ombu Grill in Koreatown was a nice experience. Three of us dined there on a Sunday night. Probably only one other table of 2 when we arrived. Not sure anyone else ever came in after that. Our waiter was charming and helpful, and while others were friendly, communication was a little more difficult with them. We picked an item which had 5 different cuts of beef, all very good, cooked over a grill in the table with about 12 to 15 typical Korean side dishes. They also have Argentinian specialties but they all need 1 hour preparation time so we weren’t able to sample as much as we would have liked to. Beer and wine only. Valet parking available in the strip center. Well appointed restaurant. MoreOpenTable Diner -

Everything was great from beginning to end. All the staff were very friendly, smiley, and energetic. It is a very loud but really creates a fun environment! My ring fell off at one point and our waitress was quick to act in helping me look for it! Also, I really appreciated the different sports games they on the televisions. MoreOpenTable Diner -

We specialize in Fresh Pressed Tea, Espresso, Home Made Japanese Curry, Hong Kong Desserts (like Mango Pancakes) and Asian Street Food (like Popcorn Chicken, Fish Balls, Tea Eggs, Calamari, Takoyaki and Fried Tofu). All of our teas are made fresh to order. We use a revolutionary Tea Press Machine which is similar to the Espresso Machine but is made specifically for tea. With this, we are able to consistently brew each cup of iced and hot tea. We use the same machine for our coffee too. Also, we use 100% Premium Ceremonial Grade Japanese Matcha for our Matcha Latte and Matcha Mille Crepe Cake. No artificial powders or syrups. All natural ingredients.More

The name Tartine Bianco stems from the collaboration between Chad Robertson, Liz Prueitt of Tartine, and Chris Bianco of Pizzeria Bianco. This relationship and the ideals it carries are vital in the philosophy behind the menu. The menu takes into consideration the many cultures that represent Los Angeles. With a large emphasis on locality and seasonality, Tartine Bianco will provide its guests the highest quality ingredients, prepared with the best intentions and respect for those ingredients. They’ve carefully cultivated relationships with purveyors and farmers like Cairnspring Mills, which sources from local grain farmers, Cream Co. Meats which provides meat grown sustainably and with superior flavor in mind, and Bianco DiNapoli’s California vine ripened and organically grown, canned tomatoes. The menu is designed to be shared and should begin with what Tartine is best known for… bread. The wine list will change regularly and, like the food, will reflect the mood of the season.More
