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.
I drove 2 hrs to take my 93 yr. old Mom to see her grandson perform on the stage @ Vibrato. We were immediately greeted by Sylvia with a smile and a welcoming voice. Although we were a few minutes early for our dinner/show reservation, we were seated in, what I determined to be the best seat in the house. This visit was a surprise for my Mom as well as her grandson (my son - the percussionist with Andy Vargas' group "Los Souleros"). From this point on the rest of the evening was one of the best experiences that both my Mom and I have ever had. Our server, Michelle, was on top of things from the very beginning. Inasmuch as this was my first visit, she helped me work my way through the amazing menu by making some excellent recommendations with drinks, food for Mom and my steak & lobster dinner.
Not only was Andy Vargas an excellent singer/entertainer but the rest of the members of his group were extremely talented musicians. The music was "happy & lively", appealing to all in attendance, with many of the customers dancing in the aisles. A special moment for my Mom was when the sax player came out to our table and for a moment serenaded her - it brought tears to her eyes. The final touch was when a Vibrato staff member presented my Mom with a couple of stems of beautiful orchids. I cannot say enough about our evening. This was not only a great dinner/show but an "experience" well worth the drive and the price. I am looking forward to returning and having others who enjoy the finer things in life join me. P.S. I grew up listening to Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass but also I have been a musician (keyboardist/singer) for many years as well as my mother having been a pianist in classical music and 2 of my other sons played trumpet in some of my original bands many years ago. This evening was a night of pure pleasure and great memories. Thank you Herb and your staff.
We went to see Ariana Savalas' cabaret show. The venue was fabulous, the food was delicious, and the entertainment was outstanding.
Herb Alpert's the Vibrato is one of the best restaurant/music venues in the LA area. There is one band that plays there probably 10 times per year, Paris Chansons. I follow this band to other venues, but the Vibrato is hands down my favorite. The accoustics are certainly the best I've seen. Herb Alpert I'm sure has something to do with this high quality. The sound mixer is spot on...very very good! Now, the food is awesome. I usually get either the salmon or halibut at about $35 or so, and always delicious. And the Red-headed Amsterdam cocktail is my favorite. The only real issue I've ever had is the wait staff. It's pretty good. Maybe a few more waiters. It's hard to complain at all because I really do love the Vibrato. I continue to take as many friends there to dine and hear my favorite band as possible. I highly recommend this venure...and the band. You will be pleasantly delighted. PS love the beautiful ambiance and paintings. Wear red..you'll fit right in.
It's an artfully appointed hot spot offering live musical entertainment, great food & good drinks! Even with a lot of people inside, gives a cozy vibe and every table has a good view of stage ...
I had a wonderful time and will definitely return!
They helped make the birthday gal's celebration absolutely flawless from beginning to end! The entertainment was top-notch, too.
Best nightclub in Los Angeles. Always great jazz. Love the Hefti Plays Hefti band!
Good food, too and excellent service.
Fabulous intimate venue.
Hefti Plays Hefti was remarkable & acoustics ideal, not too loud!
Food was lovely but a tad over priced with cover charge.
Will return, as best small venue in So Cal.
Vibrato was outstanding. I was there celebrating my birthday and Bob Desena's performance was wonderful, as was Gregory (our very attentive waiter). Thanks for making my birthday great.
FABULOUS, FOOD, DECOR, MUSIC, OUR SERVICE, A WONDERFUL PLACE TO CELEBRATE ALL SPECIAL OCCASIONS!
The food was delicious and our waiter was outstanding!!! Our drinks were good and we ordered the night's special (surf and turf) which the entire table loved! My father ordered the lamb chops and they were delicious! So much so that I will be ordering that on my next visit! The vegetable selections are incredible! The only part of our meal that we were alittle disappointed with were the desserts. We ordered the peach and apple cobbler and once our server discovered that we weren't pleased with them he took them off the bill even though we hadn't requested that. The whole table was truly impressed with that! Our overall night was filled with good food, great service, and delightful entertainment!! We will definitely be returning to Vibrato!
We haven't been to the restaurant in a while. We went specifically to hear the Connie Han Trio and were pleased to see that nothing had changed. The food was up to its usual high standards as was the wait staff. As always, it was a wonderful evening of music and food.
Great venue for live music, great food, and romantic night out. Excellent service. Parking can be difficult so arrive a little early. They also have valet.
Great food, fabulous live jazz, beautiful room! I love Vibrato!
Great atmosphere. A good variety of entertainment, changing nightly. Fantastic, well-made drinks. The double pork chop was really good, cooked medium and was still slightly moist. The largest pieces of shrimp I've ever seen for a shrimp cocktail. The tiramisu was not that good. Highly recommended to all our friends.
I had great experience twice before at this restaurant however this time I was very disappointed because we didn't like our seat but kind of forced to take a seat. My halibut was completely raw and it took me a very long time to get waiters attention to let him know. Then when he took my food to redo it, he said it'll take 10 minutes but it took about 25 minutes. By the time I got my dinner, my friends food was cold. Music wasn't as great. Overall was very disappointed since I drove all the way from La Crescenta to come here.
Jazz evening. Great venue and wonderful cuisine. Had calamari starter followed by steak
Loved everything about it!!!
Love Jazz and this place has the best in town. Of course, Herb Alpert is behind it !!!!!
Good is outstanding and service is first class !!!
I've been there a few times. I will always come back
Loved it , such a great experience
Great staff, our waiter Gregory was attentive& friendly.
Chris North was amazing!
Great as always. Never a bad time. From the drinks to the food to the music ... all excellent.
Second trip to this top notch jazz house. Service was great, food was amazing and the jazz was smashing. I will stop here every trip I make to L. A.
Loved everything about it & will definitely be back!!
This is my second occasion to attend a show at Vibrato. In short...the entertainment is exceptional. The jazz club atmosphere is very captivating and inviting. The food and drink are just a little bit pricey but it is compensated by free valet parking and no cover charge on some shows. I will be back in a couple of weeks.....and a couple of weeks after that. I absolutely loved the dining and entertainment experience.
Service was great and the food was really good. Loud but totally worth it.
The food was awful, the music too. We were expecting listent some jazz music but instead there was a weird singer. We had to pay 20 dollars for the entry even if we were dining there. I wouldn't recommend to anyone.
We had a phenomenal time and the artist was awesome! Thank you for giving us beautiful memories for our first wedding anniversary!!!
Expensive, but a classy place with good food and good music.
Great jazz local spot. Definitely recommended. Good food
This is a great romantic special occasion place with great food great atmosphere and great service. The entertainment is the main attraction.
I enjoy Vibrato for several reasons. Great entertainment, super great sound system and
excellent food and wine selection. Plus it's only a 15 minute drive, valet parking (I always
tip well, especially since there is no charge to use valet.) I'm also a musician.
The food was fair. The service was very good, and the music was fair. This is a live entertainment venue, but the live entertainment lacked sparkle.
It's all about the music, and only when it's good music, unfortunately not on last Friday
Went to see Ruslan Sirota, amazing show. The food was fantastic all-around.
Great food, nice people, awesome music, and amazing cocktails. I'll definitely be back for more.
We celebrated our 23rd anniversary and it was great as usual. Been there many times before.
Food was great but portions seemed large. Order as you go to avoid over ordering. Set up is great for watching a show while eating. Acoustics were good. Service was good. I would definitely see another show at Vibrato.
We enjoyed the food & music however our waiter spent the entire time looking for a lost credit card & didn't check on us or ask if we needed anything or how was our food after we got our dinner from the server & he had attitude when he came to get our payment after we expressed this to hostess
