This location is in a nice and populated area. The entire experience was everything that was recommended to me. I doubt there is anything on the menu that would disappoint. Play to your own pallette and be amazed.

This is a review for your hostess. We have been here a few times and it’s been a different hostess every time. They have all been unfriendly and acting like they are doing you a favor. The waiters have always been great and food is very good but this is probably the last time we will come because the way you are treated when you enter puts us in a bad mood. It doesn’t matter how good the food is.

Gjelina has been one of our favorite restaurants in L.A.since it opened. We moved away from the area a year ago, and Gjelina was the first place we wanted to go when we returned for a visit. Our breakfast there was the perfect start to our trip here. Everything was delicious, as it always is, and the service was terrific. We'll be back!

Our third time here in three days. We made our reservations at this restaurant before booking our flights! It did not disappoint. Amazing food: fresh, creative, thoughtful, and perfectly executed. Service the same—attentive but not overbearing, friendly, warm. Made us feel like we were at the home of a good friend. Can’t wait to come back!

We are regulars and adore your food. Last Sunday, was an odd one. You were out of iced coffee?! on an 80+ degree day and alternatively refused to make an iced americano. Server forgot to put in my husband's order then it came to much disappointment. The yogurt, granola and fruit was served as if it was a fancy dessert, hardly a breakfast size portion. A smear of yogurt across the bottom of the plate, just a sprinkle granola on it and and no more then a 1/4th of a cup of sliced citrus. It was a very odd portion and plating. Finally, you were not accepting AMEX? New scones date recipe is so delightful and barley kim chee eggs are sensational.

dinner at Gjelina was absolutely delicious. Unlike a few other reviews i read i thought the service was very friendly / accommodating and helpful.
everything we ate was outstanding but just mentioning a few that should not be missed

grilled oyster mushrooms
little gem salad
bok choy

the pizzas were light and delicious -
favourites were the duck proscuitto and the raclette pizza with fromage blanc.

all and all an outstanding meal - can't wait to go back

The food was amazing and the server made some great recommendations on food and reasonably priced wine. The only reason I gave the ambiance a low score had to do with the ongoing Covid restrictions. We ate inside the main dining area which was fairly empty and the music loud. I’ve eaten there prior to Covid and would’ve given them 5 stars for everything.

The pork chop we ordered was cold. When we told our waiter, he took it and came back in a heartbeat and he said it wasn’t. Sub par service.
