Loud and obnoxious man seated (against fire code) in the aisle right next to our table ruined the end of the evening. Food was good but service was slow, and the management’s response to our displeasure was insulting and lacking. Then charged for another table’s dinner on top of our own. Was completely unacceptable and would never recommend again to others.

I had written in my reservation that someone in our party had a soy allergy and then made sure to tell our waitress when ordering our meal exactly who had the soy allergy, but when the food came out the person (my boss) with the soy allergy could not eat his salad because it had edamame, which is a soybean. The waitress brought out a fresh salad but left my boos with a bad impression and a unfavorable experience. Other than that it was a lovely venue. thank you.

One of the most versatile eateries in LA to suit your multiple vibes and personalities. They have an atmosphere to suit every mood. Whether you are feeling romantic, moody, outgoing or reserve. This is the place. Not to mention the food is great. A little pricey for the menu. But great value for NYE!! Glad we chose this spot over the millions of restaurants with over priced pre-fixe entrees.

Oh Laurel Hardware, how I want to like you. It's close to my home but the food is always either over-dressed or over-salted - the foundation of the food is there but there is someone with a heavy hand in the kitchen - might come back to try it for a 3rd time and hope that the flavors are more balanced.

Had a lovely girls night out! The food was all really tasty and a good value...fun to share and try new things. The cocktails were a tad pricey, but it is LA after all. The atmosphere was really beautiful with all the twinkle lights and the indoor/outdoor space. Would be a great spot for a date night. Very enjoyable and will be back!

Overall good experience with a couple complaints. We had reservations for dinner but we’re sat at this “cozy” booth table that was NOT conducive to eating a full meal. Very cute for cocktails and lounging but very awkward to eat at. Wish we’d been sat on the patio. Also for two tall people, we were very uncomfortable the whole time. Brussels sprouts were unexpectedly bland for trendy and delicious the rest of the food was

some of the tables are problematic, i was seated at a communal table to have dinner with my dad after making a reservation and asked to be moved- i was told id have to wait if i wanted another table. of course they sat a table of 6 rowdy drunk guys who were slamming the table with their fists and bouncing our plates all over the place.

The staff are very pretentious, and unfriendly. We had to switch tables and our new waitress never checked on us or even spoke to us. We had to get water and plates from someone else. Unfortunate given my friend was here from out of town and we had such a disappointing experience.

booked for a special birthday for outside. When we arrived were told the patio was closed for a function. We were not notified of this. Then were told we could sit on the lounge at a low coffee table. This is not acceptable for a dinner. service was slow. food and drinks super expensive though good. the patio would have been conducive to conversation but the now overcrowded indoor seating was horrible. won't be back

1. i made a reservation to sit at a table. had to wait several minutes for the hostess to seat us. she was rude. upapologetic about the wait and then shoving us at a communal table when there were many free booths. she got nasty when we said we politely calmly said we wanted to sit at a private table. slamming menus. silent treatment. passive aggressive. this is who you hire to be a HOSTESS? come on guys. that's who you want to represent you?
2. drinks took forever. the special steak was over salted. like bad salt. waiter was nice and didn't send it back but felt really sick the next day. maybe by special you meant spoiled?
3. send the bratty hostess to manners school. if she thinks that attitude can be her thing, she's wrong. i'll never go back there again, which is sad because it used to be a great place.

Service was a rocky start but was made up for by our servers commitment to handling my severe allergy and over communicating when necessary. Music was also played through Bluetooth pods of some kind (I assume the WiFi was down) which was totally fine until whoever was streaming the music walked away and the music kept cutting out more often than it played. Despite that it was a great evening and we really enjoyed the food.

We visited Laurel Hardware after my wife and daughter had attended a live show at one of the network studios. We made the reservations at the last minute using OT and were accommodated by the management. The food was excellent, the wine was reasonably priced and the service was better than expected. The ambience was a little less than acceptable since it was so dark in the interior. We were offered outside seating which would have been ideal. However, our daughter did not have a wrap or jacket, so the outside would have been uncomfortably cool for her. Other than having to using our cell phone lites to read the menu and wine list, it was ok. Again, we were offered an alternative, but that did not work for us.

This is a good find and we are glad that Open Table has them in their system.

When I made reservations I requested outside. When I arrived I was told outside was not available and I would have to wait 25 min. I went to look around outside and there were three tables and a table in the bar area. When I told this to the hostess she said oh, yeah we can seat you now outside.

I ordered the Caesar salad and ending up getting very sick that night at home. Maybe because of the romaine recall, who knows. Won't get that again. Server was great!

A disappointing experience. I've been to Laurel Hardware many times, this was the worst. It was a Saturday night and extremely busy. We had a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes for our table. The table was outside as requested, and the only way to eat here is outside. The noise level inside is absolutely deafening. I would literally never eat inside on a busy night. The food was ok, but the appetizers were best. 2 people in the party ordered the duck fried rice, and both believed it was too salty. Service was very slow and not very attentive. Once we were seated, it took 2 hours from start to end, and that was with no dessert. They didn't even ask if we wanted dessert, they just cleared the plates and gave us a check. Same owner as Ysabel, and I have had horrible service problems there, as well; maybe the restaurants are both understaffed? Anyway, my entire party left unhappy by the end of the experience.
I like this restaurant a lot during the week, but on a busy Saturday, I'd recommend looking elsewhere.

Make sure you request a table outside. Tables inside are crowded and so noisy you can’t hear.
