Love this restaurant. Staff is all amazing and the owner is so welcoming. Always our go to place for a romantic dinner.
Great ambiance. Awesome staff. We went for the V Day dinner. Not good. Food was sub-par to say the least. I will go back to try it during normal business hours because of all the positive reviews. But our food was not good. I got the filet. My fiancé ordered the Chilean she bass. Both were way over cooked. Two great dishes ruined bc they were probably sitting on the kitchen warmer somewhere in the kitchen. Not worth the $ 400 we spent. I’ll go elsewhere next year.
Ambiance is the wonderful, especially on the front patio. Food is very good, although pricey.
Wine list is very pricey, with few choices at the lower end although you can do well if you know your wines. Even thought the place was not at all crowded, we had to wait an inordinately long time for our waiter to bring menus, ask if we would like wine, bring the check and then take the credit card payment, which we finally gave to the manager as waiter was nowhere to be found.
Took my girlfriend here for our anniversary, we dressed very nice and I'm not sure if it was whether we looked young (we are both 25) or whether it was due to the fact that we both are not white, but the service was sub par the entire night. We walk in the door and I had to greet the host instead of them greeting me, we were seated at probably the worst table in the restaurant (right next to the entrance, with the highest amount of traffic). It was about 15 minutes before we got any menus, not even a drink menu, but one of the water guys came and gave us two glasses. When we finally got service it felt like our waiter thought we couldn't afford anything on the menu, so I ordered the most expensive champagne to spite him. Got one check in after our food came and I had to ask a busser for the check since our waiter was no where to be found. Overall the food was excellent and the environment is very romantic, especially the outdoor seating. To me the service is half the experience and can ruin a dinner, I wouldn't recommend this place for that reason.
The overall sentiment would be "underwhelming". The restaurant is marketed as the most romantic restaurant in LA, but in reality the service is ok, the food is bland & overpriced and the atmosphere is tacky at best.
Muy buena. Regrese despues de 29 años y sigue estando hermoso y bueno
Memorable for the poor service--had to wait then flag down manager for menus, cocktail order, and water. Never received bread. Long delay between order and meals being placed on table. Waiter should tell ordering guest that special fish would cost $58.
Expect the poor service was a function of a private party, but that is no excuse.
Excellent Italianate food in a romantic surrounding. Our server did an amazing job of filleting the branzino which was cooked to perfection. One of LA's romantic restaurants with an indoor/outdoor feel.
absolutely fabulous dishes, and the staff is top notch!
This restaurant is simply incredible- beautiful, authentic, service oriented and delicious. The team is brilliantly focused on satisfying your palate and experience. Kudos!
Delicious food and great service! A bit pricey but worth it!
The best food we've had in several years! Everything about the restaurant was wonderful -- delicious, creative food, great service, beautiful ambiance! We'll be returning frequently. It's fairly expensive, but well worth it!
Massimo our server gave my wife and me an unexpected romantic afternoon lunch. Healthy, tasty and refined. I can’t wait to go back
Very enjoyable dining experience ----- Cocktails very good, food excellent, service very good/attentive/professional. Ambiance inside and exterior very nice, noise level better than most these days. Table spacing very good.
Sitting outside under the plastic cover with the tinkling lights set a great mood. Also fitting 8 of us at a round table encouraged total conversation among the group and service was food too. This is a perfect place for a romantic dinner.
The food was very good
