Service was horrible, took 40 minutes just for us to get the check and it took forever for the waitress to even get us water

Usually I have a great time at Laurel, but this night the hostess was extremely rude- sat us at a community table even though we had a reservation, and the entire time I was getting hit in the back by people walking through the packed room.

The food was great but the service wasn’t good! It took a long time to bring the food and they would bring in the food one at a time which didn’t make sense!

The food was not to our expectations for the price
The scene is vibrant and a lovely outside patio, would go to have drinks and appetizers only but would never go back for dinner again

Totally Love the OUTDOOR section. Very few LA places have that when the weather is designed for that. Great layout, and decor. Nice Vibe

Strange night with the hostess in the weeds and really scattered. We had made a reservation for 3 at 8:30 and requested a quiet table. Two of us arrived five minutes early and found a long line (out the door!) waiting for someone to return to the hostess stand. Ten minutes went by as she seated people ahead of us who DID NOT have reservations, and five more minutes passed before she even greeted us. I said I had requested a quiet table and suggested outside would be great -- but she said there were none available. Then she took us to the communal table and squeezed us in between other people, leaving no room for our third person. I flagged her down and reminded her we had a third on the way, and she made room for him, but still at the communal table with no privacy and not at all a quiet place, per our request. I texted our third person to tell him where to find us -- only to have him respond that he got there five minutes ahead of us and was already seated, outside, at the quiet table we had requested all along! Hostess never did apologize for putting us through all that...but aside from the weird hostess snafu that almost made us leave, we did end up enjoying the food, the service and the quiet ambiance.

This was so much nicer than I even imagined. The ambiance is so great, the crowd was so cool, and the service was lovely.
And there was a happy hour until 7PM, so we got really great food for a nice price on top of that.

Love the ambience, love the food-- but like some other reviews say, the service is very slow, and they weren't very accommodating with our table.

Great ambiance. Hard to beat actually. The food is good but at those prices i expected more. Just too expensive for what you actually get.

It took us a while to get here and we were very excited to try Laurel Hardware. Ultimately, it was a little bit of a disappointment. First things first, though, it is super cool. A converted Hardware store that saved the name, sign and, I'm guessing, much of the interior, it is a funky layout with a charming outdoor area. Seating is eclectic, and a bit uncomfortable, but not terrible.

Drinks were creative and pretty good, but overall weak and expensive. The food is creative and, while we were disappointed that two items we'd seen on the online menu that we wanted to try were not on the current menu. On the plus side, that means they source local and fresh ingredients and change things up, but it was a bit of a drag not to get what we expected. We tried 5 dishes that ranged from delicious to really pedestrian. The one item I would never recommend is the crispy ship dish. It was unbelievably dry and uninspired. Best dish was pork ribs.

Service is efficient but not at all welcoming or friendly. It's mot to say they are unfriendly, but they just do not go out of their way to welcome. There were a ton of servers and it felt like a team effort when it came to busing and food drops, but we were never asked how dishes were, at any point. Pacing was mostly impressive and, as mentions, efficient is the best description of the service. It simply doesn't match the prices.

The bar was absolutely packed as we left, so it's obviously a popular place and I'm guessing that most don't have expectations of better service.

While I'd recommend the place, we probably won't be rushing back. It was worth the try but there are many other options in the same category where I feel more appreciated.

Great atmosphere, but rude host staff, super low tables meant for drinks not plates, and only okay food for the money. We love this place but we’re surprised by the way we were treated when we asked if we could move to a proper sized table.

From the get go, this was an amazing experience. They have the most amazing and helpful hostess (I switched from an indoor to an outdoor table); bar tenders and waitress. Food was excellent and the variety / fusion nature among the best. Music really good and noise level low but without compromising on the atmosphere. Can’t wait for my next experience at Laurel Hardware!

Menu is good; pizzas were good but not great. Server dumped our overpriced Caesar salad wordlessly after a long wait, and provided no serving utensils even though she gave us two plates. The wait for a glass of wine was ridiculous.
