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.

The food and drinks are scrumptious! Borders on pricy for what it is. $18 for a burger. Just a little overpriced. wish they offered more on a Happy Hour menu! I like to sit on the patio, but flys are a problem. wish something could be done with that. Otherwise, great place!

"I love the classic look and feel of this place (which is in the old Brown Derby) I especially like the natural light provided courtesy of generous windows. We shared a dozen oysters 1/2 dozen of each kind offered unfortunately paid a bit of a premium for them, about $50.00 but they were outstanding and scratched that itch well. The hamburger was amazing + their sweet potato fries were worth mortally sinning over. The Cobb salad was well, a Cobb salad but it was refreshing and filling. Our Service was as near to perfection as you could ask for, every one was uber attentive and helpful. I already have plans to return for more.

I've been here quite a few times over the years and I hadn't been back in at a while. I was very surprised with this experience. The food was really off and not nearly to the level it was before. I felt bad for the wait staff as they were trying their best, but the food was upsetting to more than our table as I also heard others complain about the taste. I definitely won't be going back anytime soon and was really disappointed that we went there.

This was such a horrible experience. The service was fine but the restaurant itself is not a comfortable place. The seats are hard and it has more of a sports bar, middle of the road, vibe than one might think from the photos. The astounding revelation here is that the kitchen is precious with the food. No substitutions or alterations of any kind. If this was a Spago experience, one might understand. But this is one notch above a a cafe in a Marriott hotel! Good luck to them!

Food was delicious, service was excellent. My only quibble was the noise level. Even with acoustic panels on the ceiling the din made it hard to have an ongoing conversation.

Went there before a show at the Greek. It was great! The service was okay, but the food was delicious and the drinks were wonderful. Loved their pick your poison type deal with alcohol. I forgot what it’s called, but you pick your alcohol and they surprise you with a hand-crafted beverage. I think it’s only during happy hour, but all the selections were delicious! Still a rather pricey place, but it’s LA so when in Rome. I’d go back. :)

We went for the Sunday BBQ deal. They claim that the $50 platter serves 3-4 people. It basically has enough food for two people.
