    Arrived at least 15 minutes before our scheduled reservation, we weren't seated until 20 mins after reservation (35 mins wait) while a number of guest with/without reservations were catered too. Very disappointed by the front staff and the nonchalant attitude. Otherwise, great food, wine selection, and ambiance. Probably won't return due to poor door service.

    This is a must-try little Eagle rock gem! Loved the authentic craftsman cottage atmosphere as a backdrop for great drinks and food, served up professionally in a notably casual manner. We sat inside, which has a cozy intimate vibe. Cocktails were perfect, we shared the beet and burrata salad--very tasty and unique with mandarin oranges and edamame. I had the night's special-- fried chicken with delicious slaw, my wife had the steelhead trout which she raved about. Overall, this was a great dining experience, casual, fun, very well executed. Can't wait to go back!!!

    Third time at this restaurant and they never disappoint. We had a young child with us this time and they made us feel very welcomed and had table activities for her to keep occupied. Nice friendly comfortable ambience with some unusual menu selections.

    Little Beast is one of my very favorite LA spots after 25 years of living here. Consistently excellent cooking in a very friendly, charming place. It sports an always kind and knowledgeable staff, plus really you can just close your eyes and point at the menu and find something wonderful. It's a total neighborhood gem. A little pricey, but not wallet-draining, and while the menu is smallish, you still have a range of options - both in price and ingredients. Get a reservation!

    Outstanding and recommended by our college student granddaughter. She was right.... it was all delicious and the service was great. Steak was done perfectly and the risotto was perfect. Olives appetizer along with some bread was delicious as well. Comfortable relaxed atmosphere. A delightful evening.

    Not what we expected! Outdoor dinning was horrible loud construction work. The canopy over the outdoor sitting was ugly. The food was amazing. The ambiance and outdoor furniture just doesn't compliment what the chef is cooking . The service was good & the drinks were amazing but will never come back! Our bill was $500 for party of 6 not worth it all. This restaurant was just not for us.

    The food was incredible. We made a reservation and had to wait 30 minutes for our table, which was not the greatest, and the hostess was not very helpful. But the manager made up for it with free glasses of wine. I would definitely go back here for the food and the atmosphere. I know that overbooking type stuff happens, so that didn't put a dent in it at all!

    We had a reservation, but had to wait almost an hour past our reservation time. It was rainy and cold and we had to wait outside in a high traffic area, which made the hour wait worse. Once we were sat, service was very slow. It took 20 minutes to get our drinks and we had to ask for more drinks and water throughout our meal. We spent two and a half hours here, which was a little excessive. We normally enjoy Little Beast. In fact, it’s always been one of our favorite restaurants in LA. I hope this last experience is an anomaly.

    The service was impeccable; you have a great team. The food was delicious. Our party of two ordered the following: Chicken liver mousse, burrata and beets, flat iron steak (medium rare), and the pork chops. P.S. I had some flat iron steak leftovers for lunch the next day; i warmed it up (it was still red in the middle) and it still tasted scrumptious! I wish I had more!

    Being new to the neighborhood living and working. I have had a few clients recommend this spot as a fun hipster restaurant. I work in Fine Jewelry and also need to often recommend/ arrange dinner for my own clients... so I wanted to try it out. Upon my first date with a new person I booked a 5pm reservation for two. The restaurant is Valet only so I had to leave and go to CVS for cash back which was the nearest by the establishment. So when I walked in at 5:15- the hostess asked if I would be done within the house by 6 as they have a private party this evening. The explanation of good muenu, wine menu and service was very “poor”. It was very much unpleasant as we weren’t able to complete one bottle of wine with dinner before being asked to exit out seats and go to the outdoor bar due to the private party (otherwise I would have never booked this place on this evening.) if I could get cash back due to a complaint I would! -And I’m very easy going.

    Have been to Little Beast a few times. Always a pleasant spot. This time though the experience was dulled by our waiter calling me "MAM" multiple times. Hey waiters out there, be sensitive to the folks you're waiting on. Unintentional inference to age, even spoken with a tone of respect, may not always come off in a positive way.
