The food was amazing and we even made room for some dessert. It got a little loud around 8:30 but that is to be expected in a karaoke facility on a Saturday night. More

My preference for dining is almost exclusively at home. It is nice to be out and enjoy a meal prepared sattvically. That said, I have a very short restaurant list, AuLac is number one fav!

We were staying at the Westin, attending a convention, and I wanted to stay somewhat close to the hotel as LA traffic can be absurd. I read the reviews on OpenTable, and decided to book. I don’t know why I didn’t realize the Revolving Lounge moves, but I didn’t. It made me a little hesitant at first, because I get motion sick very easily. Not here. The only downside to the revolving lounge was the inconsistent lighting. One minute it was extremely dim, then the next it was blinding. Otherwise, the food was delicious, the service was great, beautiful view, and best of all - the bill did not break the bank. I would definitely return. More

I came here to celebrate my 3 year anniversary with my boyfriend and it was amazing. The atmosphere was great and the music was very good. Our server was extremely nice and the food was very fulfilling and tasteful. We are actually looking into having our wedding here because it was that good! I’d highly recommend this venue for a special occasion. More

Everything was great. The place is beautiful, but a bit hard to find with the one way streets and construction. Both options to sit inside or outside, the view/environment/ambiance is beautiful. Service was very attentive and fantastic. The staff was not at all stuck up or rude. Everyone was friendly. Our waiter, Reynaldo was excellent. He was funny and very good about refilling our bottomless Mimosas before the glass was ever empty. I was surprised at how much selection the buffet brunch actually offered. The only reason I gave one star short of a 5 star review is that some of the items were not as hot due to it being left out. Other than that with the 2 hour limit they set for their buffet, never once did the staff rush my group of 13. I would definitely come back with larger and smaller groups. More

My husband and I invited a friend to dinner and a concert at Dorothy Chandler. This was our third time at Vespaio. The service was as fast and courteous as the previous two times. The food and wine were both excellent. We all got the charred octopus appetizer, which was absolutely amazing! My husband loved the main course (wild boar pasta), our guest enjoyed his dinner, and I ordered the lamb special, and it was perfect! We left there very satisfied, and would gladly go back! More

Four of us stopped for dinner prior to a Broadway Musical show. The service was friendly and attentive. The food options were good and our selections were well prepared to order. The restaurant was very convenient to the Theater and the staff was sensitive to our timing for the start of the show. I though it was a good value. More

Booked a last minute reservation for two when other plans fell through hoping to find a hidden gem, and did we ever! Beautiful interior (comforting gothic romance meets trendy local hang-out), amazing personable service, and the food....indescribable. The collection of flavours that Chef Li sends from her kitchen are such that my friend and I could only stare at each other in amazement as we sampled one delicious dish after another. I realize Brussels sprouts are not high on many people’s must have dishes, but the addition of pancetta and an addictive vinaigrette would be be enough to make ANYONE come back for more. One of the best meals, if not THE best meal, I have ever had. More

Discover Los Angeles

Think Los Angeles is a one-industry town? Think again. From the micro-Seoul of Koreatown to unexpected fusion cuisines (take Chinese-Mexican, for one) and strip malls that house destination restaurants, the city’s restaurant scene is notably experimental and diverse. Ask locals where to find the best taco truck (or lonchero) in the city, and you’ve struck a match. These mobile microenterprises are a part of the city's lifeblood. With L.A.’s own Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic, Jonathan Gold, describing the city as “less of a melting pot—more of a glittering mosaic,” we’re seeing L.A.’s vast palate show up on the plate.
