    Pre-show before the Greek. Great cocktails, food & service!! Delicious cocktails (paper girl for me, old fashioned riff for him) and we shared the grilled oysters, Brussels sprouts, and short ribs. All were delicious! A few bits of shell in the oysters but that happens. Loved the Thai flavors and the slaw in the Brussels. And the short rib just falling off the bone, great mashed & horseradish creme fraiche. We will be back! Also, we called ahead to ask about leaving our cars there, no problem! Slight valet up-charge ($18 vs $8) but still better than stacked parking and the valets super nice!

    Out for a birthday night with the family. Pretty empty for a Saturday night so we got right in. Good drink selection. Crab cakes were delicious but overpriced. Shrimp cocktail was great but $18 for 6 tails. Asked to split the salmon for the kids but they brought out two full entrees (and charged it as two), which was an expensive and wasteful mistake. Overall, it was good but overpriced.

    Completely different experience at Messhall Kitchen than my last. The Hostess was fantastic, our server was awesome and attentive, special requests were welcomed, AND they have the best Mess Burger/cheeseburger in LA! Our finicky daughter inhaled the ribs and my sparkling rosés (plural) hit the spot. Highly recommended!

    This is probably the 8-9th time I've been here. It is a great place to go for a good time. The bar is amazing, they can make most drinks and have tons of special spirits. Also cocktail menu is great I personally love their tequila selection. Great quality at good prices. The food is equally amazing. Appetizer: 30min bisquits are good and are worth the wait. If u want something fast, fries are a must, but pair it with the Brussel sprouts or the crab cake! Entree: Short rib is a personal favorite. It's reminds me of going to lawrys and getting a small cut of prime rib, but much more depth. Simple but extravagant. It was a delicate short rib with mashed potatoes, delicious a jus, and a horseradish sauce. Simply amazing. Also burger is good! Mac and cheese is too. Bananas dessert is to die for. But the service is great consistently. They are really accommodating and friendly. This place is a personal favorite in the area. Recently came for my birthday. Staff was as always accommodating and awesome. Really 5 star service for the price. Thanks always. Food was great. Was able to seat my huge party with last minute notice. I love this place!

    Great food and very nice dining experience. We sat on the patio and even in 100-degree heat we had a pleasant time. Food came out quickly and was excellent. We kad Korean BBQ wings, crispy chicken sandwich and pulled pork sandwich. The sandwich bread, which looked like house baked ciabiatta, was great. Sandwiches were tasty. The pulled pork sandwich was outstanding thanks to the slaw, pickled onions and sauce that made every bite sing. Loved the wings, too. Spicy without being super hot. Great flavor and you could heat them up with the kimchee served with the plate. Perfect portions, too. Oh, and they got us in and out in time for our show without making us feel rushed.

    It is casually nice . Per for a first daytime date. There was no pressure from the staff to leave after we finished our meal. I would say that it’s totally chill and the food was pretty good.

    I came here for supper on a Saturday at 6:45. At that time it was exceptionally busy. The staff was helpful and energetic. After an hour or so, the crowd died down some. The Cobb salad was very good and had breaded chicken and chopped egg which was a tasty variation from the typical Cobb salad. I would go back.

    Good place for a pre Greek Theater casual dinner. We liked their Hamburger and Turkey Burger. Lots of French Fries come with them, and they are very tasty. We had very good service and enjoyed our pre theater dinner. No street parking, only valet.

    If you're headed to the Greek for a concert, this is a convenient spot to dine and park. A walk up the hill gets you to the Greek without the inconvenience of getting in and out of the parking lot. If you're headed to the Pantages for theater, it's a quick drive. The food is yummy and the cocktails are unique!

    We were early but were seated right away. Waiter was right there with drinks, helpful with the menu and would re-appear at just the right time (somehow not right when I have a huge mouthful of food which happens all the time) I thought it was a bit loud but it was really just one lady at a birthday party howling but whatever, they were having a good time. The BBQ ribs were surprisingly good-only surprising because somehow this place is a sneaky good BBQ joint! Oysters- perfection. Really good value, too. My one, and only complaint: Can we please go back to real physical menus? We spend enough time on the phone. That's it! Will be back for sure. Thanks!
