The Henry - West Hollywood
In Los Angles, Herb Alpert�s Vibrato Grill, Jazz, Etc. is where music meets food in an explosive combination of warm ambiance, elegance and world-class music with a dash of Americana. The upscale interior harmonizes perfectly with the numerous artists that perform at Vibrato on a regular basis.
The menu at Vibrato meshes Italian traditions with California classics including steakhouse type meals and vegetarian options. You will want to try one of the chef plates like the Kobe burger with gruyere cheese and grilled onion, the baked Alaskan halibut with grilled artichoke hearts or the roasted cauliflower steak with grilled corn relish.
We enjoyed the good food and wine plus the great music (Marcus Nand & band with the talented Mayssa Karaa as guest singer- Wow!)
First time and fabulous! I had the 7oz filet and it was perfect.. The $25.00 per person cover was added to the bill, which made it a bit steep but the entertainment was worth it.. My mistake, however, was calculating my servers tip on the WHOLE bill.. Not just the food .. He had a good night!
I went especially to see Hefti Plays Hefti and it was fantastic. I had 3 other people,we had dinner
and drinks.Everything was great. Our seating was the best. I truly would recommend this place
for a really nice evening of dining and great music.
The benchmark for jazz, soul & funk for Los Angeles - interior beauty, service, vibe, cuisine, bar, & clientele receive my 5-star recommendation. The absolute place to be, bar none.
The overall impression was great. The entertainment was wonderful and the food was delicious. The one piece that ruined the evening was the service. We waited long periods of time to get more drinks, have our dirty dishes removed (had to ask someone to do this for us) and have the waiter return to ask us for dessert and coffee (which we would have ordered). We were both extremely disappointed in the service - not so sure we will return.
Was seated at a booth to the right of the stage. This a a business meeting and we ordered: a negroni(bartender never heard of and didn't know to prepare one) and a Grey goose vodka tonic and the Tuna tartar appetizer. All was satisfactory. However the bread on the table was NOT fresh, the bread sticks were not crunchy, but stale.
There were no signs on the table cautioning of a step down; evidently I fell as a result injuring my ankle. Several restaurant staff witnessed it and did not offer to help or see if I was alright.
We had a great time! The music was excellent, and the interior is beautiful. The food was so so, but maybe we didn't order the right things. It seemed like their specialty is steak. Their vegetarian choices are very limited. Also, the service was friendly.
Thank you and The Reverend Shawn Amos for the best First Wedding Anniversary possible. What an incredible atmosphere, evening, food and cocktails. Will return indeed.
Wonderful blues concert by Rev Shawn Amos and band.
Vibrato Jazz and Grill is nestled above Los Angeles on Beverly Glen Circle. Excellent food, attentive service and on the evening I visited, there was superb jazz from San Francisco vocalist Sony Holland. As to be expected in a club with Herb Alpert's name on it, the sound of the room was perfect. Recommended for Angelenos and out-of-towners alike.
Amazing! A true gem. Like stepping back into Rick's Cafe in Casablanca. Don't miss the food, either. Truly fabulous, matched by impeccable service.
Vibrato is one of the best Jazz restaurants I have ever been to.
This is resturant, not a jazz club. The diners talked throughout the set and were remarkable rude to the musicians. The food was good but not great, especially for the price. We were very disappointed.
We have been here @ bar, finally decided to splurge for husband bday. Food was delicious, service ok.
Overall positive experience
Being that it was our first time at Vibrato and seeing Katherine McPhee our overall experience is definitely memorable. The staffs were nice, the place was gorgeous and the food was delicious. Of course, Katherine was phenomenal!
Vibrato Bar and Grill Jazz Club is a great place to see GREAT jazz and have Wonderful Food. The food is the best in Los Angeles. The Jazz Artists are a wide variety of Talented Musicians and Singers. The Musical Director Pat Senatore is Great at choosing the Musical Acts as well as being a Great Musician. If you love Jazz and you love great Food then make a trip to the Vibrato Bar and Grill Jazz Club.
Our experience here was unique, I went with a friend to celebrate a birthday, and they were thoughtful! They brought her some flowers, and the announcer recognized her birthday for the other patrons as well as us. I wanted to personally thank the owner, she was extremely helpful in addition to Eric who made a special effort to greet us and ensure everything was to our satisfaction. I consider them the best of the best.
Food was incredible. Must try the mushroom ravioli and Chilean sea bass.
Fantastic place to see live performances. Food and service was outstanding!
Top quality food and service with amazing jazz
Unassuming setting in a high end strip mall. Walked into a spacious sexy ambiance, bar, seating area surrounding the stage and upstairs area. A bit hectic at the reservation desk due to first show crowd leaving. Hostess visibly uncomfortable with letting everyone know they had to wait in line. The waitress and servers were on point with great service and nearby all evening. The food was fantastic, crab cakes all crab and moist, beet salad , sweet potato fries and the house wine was light and refreshing and paired well with the meal. No prices on the menu. I didn't pay the bill so I don't know the price point. Well worth it. The real treat was the band and featured singer Eloise Laws and her family Herbert, Ronnie and Debra Laws. Thank you Robin and Eloise for the invite. I had a wonderful time. Hugs
This was my very first time at Vibrato's and I was not disappointed, great seating, great food, wonderful service, and most of all fantastic entertainment, the Laws family was truly a gift that kept giving all night,, will definitely be back
We don't come here too too often because we want to keep the experience we have here special! We brought a couple here for the first time as an anniversary gift. They were overwhelmed by how nice it was and the show was fabulous! Our server was attentive and the meal was magnificent. We are looking forward to the next visit.
Great entertainment, great ambiance. Food needs seasoning, servers --just ok, kinda slow. Hostess seats her personal acquaintances in best seats. If not regular, you will get mediocre treatment. This is my second time there and this happened to me both times. Doubt that I will return.
This was the very first time that my family and I dined at Vibrato's but I must say I have been eyeing this place for a while. Whether it was the ambiance, the musical performance or the food for Mother's Day Dinner, it definitely deserves 5/5 starts. Absolutely enjoyed every second.
Everything was fabulous. Excellent service, ambiance was suitable, and food was appealing. All in all, we were pleased with the overall restaurant. Impressed by music as well as our server during our visit. Everything from sitting down to leaving was impeccable.
The performed Revered was awesome. So much energy and very entertaining.
I've been to this restaurant 8-9 times and have always had a wonderful experience except this last time. Service was horrible, they were understaffed, didn't get 3 things that our table ordered, they added a corkage fee and forgot to even open the bottle of wine I brought!! For $450 for 4 people I was disappointed, and music this time was WAY TOO loud. I'll give it a try again but for anyone going please call first to confirm the type of music and make sure they have enough staff. If not, mush better deals at other restaurants for $100+/person dinner.
The food was excellent. The cocktails were delicious. The music was fantastic !!!!
Great food, strong drinks and soulful live Blues. What's not to like?
Great ambience, great service. Very pricey, but the entertainment has to receive their value. This is not a place I would go for anything other than a very special occasion. But it was great fun.
Went to see a band and have dinner here. Great evening. Food was good, service excellent (although seating was tight and everyone passing bumped into my chair). To be fair the house was sold out and the bar area behind me was packed. In all a wonderful evening and would highly recommend it.
Best jazz and dinner club in LA. The ambiance, the food, the music. All spectacular. Not to be missed.
Everytime I have been here has been memorable. What a beautiful way to spend an evening- Very civilized!
After living in Studio City for 3 years and hearing much about this place, we decided to take in dinner and a show. We were surprised at the beautiful and intimate theatre and we saw an amazing show. The food was outstanding, my husband had a filet and said it was probably the best he has ever had (THAT is saying something!) and I had an amazing chicken dinner. However, we found the service quite lacking. It took 15 minutes for anyone to come to our table to take a drink order after we arrived. The waitress was rude and throughout the night never came back to check on us and ask how the food was or if we needed more drinks. We would have ordered another if we had been given the opportunity. After the show it took forever to get our check. The valet was on the spot though -- even though there was a line to pick up cars, it moved quickly and efficiently. We will try it one more time because overall we liked the place, but if the service is the same we will never return.
Great place, excellent food, and wonderful dining experience.
To me, everything about this place is perfect: the ambiance, our waiter (Adrian), the food, the wine, the mellow live jazz (piano and bass). Everything we ate was outstandingly delicious. We were comfortable and made to feel welcome and treated superbly. But, while we saw the prices on the menu, we were still shocked at how high the final bill was. At least everything was top notch. It would have been maddening if the bill was high and the food and/or service was not so great.
The music was too load and the performer too dominating. The service was hit and miss.
We loved the place, food, and staff.
Bel Air gem. Tucked away in a shopping center, this vibrant jazz and dining spot creates many memorable evenings.
Robert Davi is creating a second career by returning to his roots in singing.
Great voice and delivery.
Love his selections and his acknowledgements to artists past at the same time making them his own.
Very enjoyable and worth the price.
