Good is decent, service needs improvement. Had to ask for water 3 times even though restaurant was not too busy. Dishes were piled up on our table and had to ask 2 times to remove it. The only plus is, they have great outdoor patio which was pleasant to dine on.

Very nice dining experience overall. Food was well presented and flavorful. With portion size being on the smaller size (I'm not a big eater and own restaurants) and the drinks being a tad expensive for what you get, the value was just ok. But then this is LA right?

Having said all of that, I would come again and also a bit of last minute advice, valet and don't try to find street parking nearby. It's on a busy section of Los Feliz and there isn't much of that around.

We got there and it we were easily seated- the servers were masked up which was greatly appreciated. The food was OMG AMAZING!!!! Our servers were very attentive and didn’t let empty plates linger! We enjoyed the food almost as much as we enjoyed each other’s company! Thanks messhall!

The cocktails were good. Apparently they do not have cold coffee to make iced coffee with. Ours was a watery mess of melted ice. I liked the seasonal omelette

We were walked past many open tables inside the restaurant, and let to a table in the covered parking lot. AREN'T COVID RULES OVER??! Food was average and when we used to dine there it was great. No deviled eggs on the menu - what the heck!

The food and drinks were excellent but a bit on the pricey side. We sat in the The Backyard (covered parking lot area) which was great. Everyone staff member we had contact with was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend Messhall!

This place is great. It’s pricey, but I know prices are going up everywhere. Drinks are awesome. I recommend the Amanda. The Brussels sprouts appetizer is delicious and has a little kick. I had the veggie beast, and it is very filling and tasty. We will be bacj

Not a huge deal, but 2 of our 5 orders were wrong. One got fixed right away and the other was offered to be replaced, but we ended up just picking off what we asked not to be put on. We're just grateful they are open, and there's a nice person willing to serve us!

Messhall is great with a group of people gathered around one of the fire pits on the patio.
The room is loud and it feels like a bar scene with a restaurant, but not entirely in a disruptive way. We ordered the 20 minute biscuit as an appetizer and had it for dessert with their butter jam and honey. Overall enjoyable, and a great spot before a concert at the Greek where you can walk off dinner to see a show.

Probably my favorite place to eat. Great, diverse menu. They take reservations serious (amazing in this town). Not cheap, but definitely bang for the buck.
Took six there last night. They had our table ready, even accommodated us when my high maintenance friend decided he wanted to sit inside instead of out.
Ernesto, our server made great suggestions and took great care of us. Don't go there in a rush. That's not their deal. Go hungry and thirsty.
