Friendly staff. Best sandwich made with apples I've ever had and that's coming from someone who has never had an apple sandwich.

Menu has changed too much and is too minimal. Not enough menu items like before. Wine and beer list is smaller than before. Portion sizes are too small for the price.

The gnocchi was underwhelming! The flatbread was not as good as usual either. It wasn’t very flat?! I usually love this place

Little Pine is one of the best restaurants in LA, period, not just one of the best vegan restaurants.

Service sucked. Servers were inattentive and had now idea where food was going out to. Service was slow. Everything took twice as long. They ran out of breakfast sandwiches and had to make more? So we had to wait fifteen minutes for one plate while another had arrived. This place sucks now since Moby sold it. Won’t be going back. Sad.

The server was sub par. Never came to check on us even though they were out of what we ordered. We tried for a long time to order a replacement dish and had to flag down another worker. A few dishes were bland and cold. We waited a long time for our replacement dish for our young daughter and after 90 minutes, in which we were there for a long time trying to get her attention, she told us our time is up and to leave even though we were there celebrating a birthday. We never even had the opportunity to order birthday dessert. It was the worst experience we have ever had at Little Pine and have eaten here many times over the years.

Exclusively outside dining very pleasant; don't feel that you are in quite the urban location you are. Though picnic table dining is not the most comfortable.

All vegan food is very good if not the most imaginative. Classic vegan problem of being on the bland side. Bread pudding dessert was probably best item we had though cauliflower to share was pretty good as well.

Staff was lovely and voluminous though our main server disappeared from time to time. A bit overpriced; entrees they're charging $20 for I'd say feel like they shouldn't be more than $15.

Monday Lunch Reservation ordered Caesar Salad and added chikn (fried capers were a nice surprise, the lettuce leaves are so large you def need to use a butter knife. If you are a salad eater, this is a modest portion IMO), Mushroom Duxelle (delicious just think that the sourdough needed to be toasted more or add a food barrier like a thin slice of parm to absorb the excess moisture as eating it became a soggy experience) and an Apple Sandwich (creative and delicious) and its side of coleslaw which has bit too much horseradish and has a big spicy kick, maybe less horseradish. We shared all of the plates and felt satisfied. In addition to water, ordered Black Tea (it is very strong, bitter and unsweetened) Total tea enthusiast of hot and cold sweet & unsweet but this Tea I would def not order again. Also ordered lemonade, which is another beverage that I will not order again because it was tart AF. After taking a sip, sucked the inside of my cheeks which perched my lips out as it was so tart even after stirring and adding water. Not a fan of returning food/beverages back to kitchen.
First time returning to LP since the pandemic and it is def a more positive vibe. Seating is outdoors only and the mood is less stuffy and pretentious than previous dining experiences at LP (not being rude just noticing a big positive difference).
One ask, how else can a patron be welcomed to LP instead of asking if they have dined there before? We and other patrons were asked 3 times by host, person bringing water and the wait person. Perhaps, Welcome to LP, here is our Vegan/PB menu.
I don't ever remember leaving LP in the past with having a good dining experience of course, the food was always good but the vibes were off. Looking forward to more luncheons at LP. Reviewing with 5 stars because we will return.

The apple sandwich was the best sandwich I’ve had in my life. The Mac n cheese was also the best vegan Mac and cheese I’ve had in my life and I’ve had a lot. Also the Mushroom duxelle was just divine. Absolutely outstanding. Elegant wine as well. Fantastic.

We have always wanted to try this restaurant and was really happy to know that it was still open. We went for Brunch on a Saturday and the weather was perfect for outdoor seating. It was very quiet except for the occasional dog barks since dogs are allowed outside. The food was delicious especially the pancakes (best pancakes ever!). The service was exceptional and everyone who works there was super nice. It isn’t a large menu but that doesn’t matter when the food is simple and the quality is good. Will definitely go back and try dinner next time!

We ordered 2 apps and 2 entrees and requested they all be brought out together. We got 2 items (1 app and 1 entree) first, followed by the 2nd entree. The 2nd app took forever and we were told that the person working that station had taken a break, which I found odd in the middle of dinner service.
Our server never came over to check on us until it was obvious that were were finished with the 3 dishes that we had gotten. We told him that we were still waiting on the one app. I will say that his service did get better toward the end of the meal.
The food has definitely gone downhill from the last time we were there, a couple of years ago. We won't be going back.

Food was good but not kid friendly. We were catching up with friends we hadn’t seen since before the pandemic when they kicked us out for exceeding our 90 minute limit even though they had plenty of empty tables.

We had a group of 5 and ordered several dishes to share. One dish was forgotten, but they quickly brought it out once we pointed it out. Service was a little slow - almost like we were forgotten at times.
