Little Beast Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Bad experience. Long wait to be seated though the place was empty. The place was so dark I couldn’t see the food. Only dish worth eating was the crudo, which was good but not like the pictures of it.
The Mac and cheese was awful!!! The shell pasta they used in it was tasteless and floury. The chocolate pudding way too sweet. Stale bread with the pate. Hostess not friendly.
We had a little family get together and always love the patio. Three of us ordered the chicken and though delicious it was way too salty. One ordered the risotto, which was really tasty but I think risotto should be a small plate, not an entree. The bread pudding was excellent, the lemon tart, which was a special was absolutely horrible. This has been a favorite - may need to find another place with better food, same ambiance!
The menu is quite ambitious with nary a simple dish to choose. However on Mondays they usually have fried chicken that is simply AMAZING. Worth an extra order to share for leftovers. Crisp coating seals in juices and is not at all greasy. Worth a special trip! Wish there were more choices for simple veggies and salads . Hipster and family crowd. Interesting but short wine list. Corkage is a bit high -$18.
Went to Little Beast for the first time to celebrate my daughter's birthday. They only service beer and wine at the moment. The wine list is small, but both wines we had were very good. We especially liked the Syrah. The food was excellent. Every dish we had, ranging from fish to beef to lamb to vegetarian, was delicious. And the dessert was the perfect way to top off the meal.
I would definitely go back again.
Service was delightful but food okay. Steelhead trout undercooked. Don’t know why our guests didn’t send it back to be recooked. Octopus special was very good as was black sesame cake & sorbets. Overpriced for what it was. I so miss Ba Restaurant and James Graham’s cooking.
Someone told me to try this restaurant, and I did, but I was disappointed. The restaurant needs to improve food, service/ hostess (more professional including presentation), the room inside the restaurant needs something to soften the noise as right now is noise. I love to support small businesses, and I hope I'll try this restaurant again and report on the improvements.
Love this place. Have been about 5 times in the last year or so and the experience is consistently excellent. Everything on the menue is great. Yes, hamburger outstanding but if you have that you must come back for other entres. Great small restaurant for any occasion. Best occasion is to eat some really good food.
So Overpriced and overhyped. We went on a Sunday night and the service was rushed and the food subpar compared to other restaurants in similar price range. We don’t understand what all the rave reviews are about. Could have gone down the street to ERP for a superior experience and actually recognize what we are served.
They are exactly how they describe themselves on their website, which means the best thing a diner can do is visit Little Beast for themselves so as to have their own delightful, delicious dining and culinary experience touched by the sincere warmth and intentions of the owners - didn’t meet them but their hearts and talents obviously guide their lovely restaurant.
This was my fourth visit to Little Beast. We didn't find the menu options quite as appealing as on other visits, but with small, limited menus, that can happen. Service was not as good as past visits. Server seemed unfamiliar with the menu. Wondered if he had been called in and wasn't prepared? I really like this restaurant and will continue to patronize.
Didn't know what to expect... and the food turned out amazing. Portion size perfect. Flavorful. But not overwhelming. Everything seems so familiar but yet the taste is new. We had the Apple & burrata salad. So good. Lamb meatballs, flavor is great and has a bite to it. I Main dishes were pork chop and Steelhead. I was in serious doubt about Mole rissoto( coz I don't like Mole) but it was gooooood. Fish is tender and moist. Skin is crispy. Overall a perfect dish.
My pork chop.... not only is it done well, the shredded vegetables underneath is the highlight for me.
I would definitely go back
This was only my second time returning to Little Beast, and I was pleasantly surprised with the creative menu additions and specials - the duck liver mousse was superb; our tablemates couldn't stop raving about it. I also enjoyed the charred broccoli salad, spiced tomato curry, and Bolognese dishes. Will definitely be back!
Food was bland, duck liver mousse was not that great as everyone says. Meat and fish were of great quality/texture but lacking flavor(s). Food presentation was beautiful and the ambiance itself was nice. Server seemed attentive but did not seem to really care about what we thought especially when I told him that the duck liver mousse was not that great. Over all 3/5
Celebrated a birthday, noted in the reservation. No notice or acknowledgment whatsoever. Way too many kids. Three table pushed together with kids running up and down the stairs, yelling and screaming. We asked to be seated on the other side. Still heard them, and 2 other table with crying ill behaved children. Waiter was really bored. I was quite surprised by the very shallow menu. 1 burger choice, 1 pasta choice, 1 chicken, 1 lamb and 1 veggie choice. We both enjoyed the cous cous salad. Very tasty. Neither of use enjoyed the overly salty burger. A big disappointment. Not inexpensive, and I have no problem paying for quality experience, but did not get that here.
