Went for brunch and all parties were unimpressed with their food. Waitress disappeared at end of meal and didn’t come back around for half an hour after we were finished. My omelet had a very very small amount of short rib in it. The biscuit was tiny and “jam” was basically watered down strawberry compote that you would serve on a waffle. Eggs ordered over medium were beyond hard and the sausage links were crunchy. I’ll just stop here.

Great food and service. The only issue is the loud noise level. Can they put something on the ceiling to deaden the noise?

We've been going to Messhall for years and love it. It's one of our favorite restaurants in LA. They recently changed their chicken sandwich which I'm not super excited about because it was a pretty far departure (in a bad way) from what they've been serving for the past few years but other than that the food is generally always good.

Really good value at Happy Hour. A bit too packed, loud and chaotic for me. Good meet up venue before the Greek.

What a wonderful place to dine. It's so crazy to see what this space has become since I used to do there back in the days when it was still The Derby - sh*t d I feel old.

We dined here right before a concert at The Greek and so glad we did. The food is delicious and the drink selection is very nice. The ambiance too was wonderful, a place that can be equally enjoyed by young and old. I was actually quite surprised at the food cost and expected to pay more, so in that sense, for the great food, ambiance and wonderful service, this is surely a Los Angeles gem.

Great little tip - valet your car, leave a nice tip, have dinner, Uber to The Greek, take a cab back to the restaurant. So convenient!

One of my new favs in L.A.

Food was good but overpriced. Service was good too. Bad happy hour. I’ve never heard of one that ends at 6 pm. They need to extend it to at least 7 pm. Also, they had a sign outside stating to try their new menu. It was not knew. I ate there a couple years back and it was same menu, except maybe their smaller menu, which looked more like a weekly special thing. Overall, not sure if I’ll come back.

The staff is really nice, the setting is dynamic but not annoying. I like that I can get a glance at the TV if football or baseball is on, but it doesn’t dominate the setting. The food is great. We mostly go pescatarian or vegetarian - they have some creative entrees that are always perfectly cooked.

Great place, Hannah was wonderful and very attentive, the oysters were good not great but the short rib and turkey chili was fantastic, and the brussels sprout side dish was one of the best I've ever had (and I order them everywhere) The drinks were yummy as well. looking forward to going back

We found Mess Hall on Yelp while searching for a pre-show restaurant before a concert at the Greek. It was really close and had great reviews so we went for it. We are so happy we did! The food was great. We got there during Happy Hour so we indulged in some fresh oysters, delicious turkey sliders, wonderful balsamic glazed kale, and a lovely house salad, all to share. Everything was delicious! It’s a lively place with a nice patio. Reserve a table there if the weather is nice.

Upon entering the restaurant, we asked the hostess whether we could sit outside of the restaurant (we had an opentable reservation). The hostess informed us that we should have specifically requested outside seating and that they had a big party coming into the restaurant. I would have found this to be an acceptable reason, however, when we left the restaurant, the same outside tables (that I initially saw) were still empty.

Don't get be wrong, the food (OG cobb salad) I had was delicious, but this initial/post-experience with the hostess was an unpleasant and unfortunate experience.

Despite it being crazy busy due to a concert at the Greek Theater, they were able to accommodate our reservation 10 minute early as soon as we walked in the door. Service was prompt and fantastic. Food was great.

Bartender was our server for lunch. He was great. Food was good. I had the tostada salad with salmon. It was good, but expensive. That's the only reason for the low score. The sweet potato fries and dipping sauce are amazing.

Wanted a chill Sunday brunch but felt like they were rushing us out, which was odd given that lots of seats were vacant. Food was ok.

Everything we had was absolutely delicious. I'm already dreaming of those shrimp and grits... shrimp perfectly cooked, the grits creamy and smooth. Also really impressed with the brussels sprouts. Loved the addition of fresnos and basil. So good! The service was stellar--we felt well taken care of and respected. Two of us "rolled the dice" with our cocktails and both came out tasty and well balanced. Will definitely return!

Their mains are the least interesting items, so going during Happy Hour was nice, we got a ton of sides and split a steak. The Brussels sprouts are a must.
