Love Tuesdays here - $1 Oysters and Tacos!! Overall, this place is pretty consistent and the vibe is fun. Service is usually really good and fast. The burger is amazing!

Great ambiance and raw bar. The brunch menu was ok. Food good but not notable. My main complaint is the service. We were there for almost 3 hours for a birthday brunch, and half of that was spent waiting for the server to take our order, refill the drinks, and come back to pick up our payment for the meal. As a former server, I can understand if the server was slammed. However, this was not the case. The restaurant was not busy in the least so I cannot forgive the inadequacy and inattentive manner of the service.

We had dinner on Saturday night at this restaurant, after the theatre. We chose this one specifically, as it was close to the venue and was participating in Dine LA. Both my husband and I had the Dine La Specials - a very good value for $29. (3 courses). The appetizers were very good, and the dessert was good, however the main courses were very salty and too much sauce

Overall I had a very pleasant experience at MessHall. I only tried a couple dishes (they were good, but not amazing). Our server was nice but came somewhat infrequently. Still, she took her time to help us and we enjoyed the atmosphere.

New Year’s Day brunch. The DJ music was blasting. Several customers asked that it be turned down. The manager and DJ did not agree. We were moved to another slightly less loud place in the restaurant. Obviously the customer experience was not a priority. The food was great. The service average. Overall a lousy experience this time. Normally we love it.

I have been past this place many times and finally decided to try it with my family for New Years Eve. I love the fact that they didn’t have a prefixed menu for New Years that costed $200 but just had their regular menu. My dad and I shared a plate from their Sunday BBQ menu which was excellent and a great value, especially since we split it. The turkey chili was great, as well as the roasted chicken and the veggie burger. Will be definitely going back, especially because of the desserts and the cocktails.

A convenient location, good food, and drink are the main draws here. The wings are meaty and have the right amount of buffalo sauce kick. Burgers are high-quality and large. And the Belgian fries are addictive. Service was a little slow, but they could have been short-staffed during the holidays.

As always, a fantastic meal at a great place with great service. The one place I know of in Los Angeles that makes you feel like you're in the middle of the forest when you're actually in the city. Also, great new cocktails and updated menu allows one to try new options every time. I've never been disappointed.

Was glad to finally try the newest occupant of the classic Brown Derby location, and lov d how the broad brim of the original "hat" has been developed as a wrap around outdoor terrace with fire pit tables, around one of which we sat. Our "loaded dice" cocktails were going excell nt, as was the service; the food was good but not as good as hoped for.

The food was good but the service was really an issue. It took a long time to place our drink orders. Then, there was a wait until half of our drinks were brought. Then, it was at least a half hour before the rest of our drinks were brought. I would say that we were there almost an hour before all 6 of us had our drink orders.

Our table was noisy and I thought it was very warm. We were close to the kitchen and under the music speaker so it was hard to hear each other. We stopped by for dinner after visiting Griffith Observatory. The restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge. I ordered the slow cooked short rib dish. The server told me it was a house favorite and had been on the menu for the past five years. I'm very glad he recommended it. It was delicious. Meat was tender and the combination of the mashed potatoes, kale, and mushrooms added a home cooked element to the entree. Despite the noise level and the room temperature, we enjoyed ourselves. The service was first class. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. A bonus on Tuesdays is the $1 tacos. They are small but extremely tasty. I disliked paying $6 for valet parking but I guess that is typical in LA.

A serviceable bar/gastropub...but beware the 3% “surcharge” they add with the general explanation that they are doing it to ensure they can continue to offer good service. Isn’t that what the tip is for? Another option: raise your menu prices instead of this stealth surcharge. If you read online, you’ll see that there are other restaurants trying to pull this on their customers. They never tell you exactly what the 3% will be paying for. They do tell you that you can opt out of paying it by telling your server. My choice is to opt out of dining there again.

Big fan of this place. The brisket is probably my favorite dinner in the area, but I really need to start trying more stuff there. Tuesday is $1 oyster night, if that is your thing. I'm good with about 3 oysters per year. They taste like the ocean. Regardless, Messhall rules and is consistently good.

Oysters are way over prized. And of course no prizes on the menu. Service was slow, in fact we stoppped ordering because we got tired waiting for someone to get us another round. Food was tasty over all. Oysters and kale salad were just ok.

We'll absolutely be back and you should go check it out too! Mess Hall is cute, delicious, and a fun weeknight meal spot. We went this week and while the service was extremely slow, I think it had more to do with the fact that it was a Tuesday and super busy than due to our server. We do love Mess Hall and the $1 Oyster/$1 taco/$5 draft is SO worth the wait!
