One of my fav restaurants in LA
From the ridiculous Brussel Sprouts, crunchy and flavorful, to the crazy Mac and Cheese... and of course my fav thing on the menu...Scallops and Grits...sweet sauce mixed with scallops cooked to perfection-and yummy grits with peas el dente... the service is second to none.
Go go go... you won’t be disappointed🤩

First time at the restaurant I was excited for oysters. The outdoor sitting is not so warm or pleasant they could use some decorating tips to give the place a better ambience, our waitress was very knowledgeable with the menu recommendations and our wine questions (always a plus) except when I was choking and my husband asked three people for some dinner rolls then our waitress come and explained it’s an order, which still would be okey but to pay $6 and get a peace of cold/stale role is not ok. We may check out their brunch next time, aside from the bread the food was made exceptional.

Love Messhall! Was a pre COVid weekly event, hadn’t been back since the stay in place orders. Was a very special reintroduction to being in public eating spaces. Marshall was my first COVid restaurant experience..... I picked them for a reason!

Food is good, service is excellent. They’ve put up another tent outside for more seating. It’s great for social distancing but, it’s obviously temporary and not at all decorated. We (safely) interacted with servers, bussers and the hostess and everyone was so wonderful and welcoming.

If you get seated in the new outdoor dining parking lot area (not their normal patio): beware, it's frigid and has absolutely zero vibe. No music going, nothing. They have heaters but they were opposite the wind blowing (so the wind was blowing heat AWAY from us) and were right next to the one edge without a "screen". Frigid.

Valet was cheap, food was great, they were very kind when we requested a specific table and made it happen. Felt safe with the spacing. Overall good experience for a casual dinner.

I have consistently been impressed with the food at MessHall. It's been my go-to spot for special occasions for years — I just went here for my birthday last week, and previously we've gone for anniversaries and our restaurant club. And their commitment to safety during the After Times is unsurpassed. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

While it is understandable due to the COVID restrictions, we had to sit at a high table in the parking lot seating area rather than our preferred option at the established seating area on the patio by one of the fires. Had seats been available on the patio, then the rating would be higher for the ambience. With that said, we LOVE Messhall Kitchen and definitely recommend it to everyone!

The food and service was really great. When making a reservation, I would suggest making a note that you want to sit in the front part otherwise you may be stuck in the "Backyard" which isn't quite as nice or warm than the front patio.

Easy 5 stars. They have BBQ and Oysters. What else can you ask for? The service is like a fine-dining restaurant. Delicious cocktails as well! They have an outdoor patio with distanced tables and the staff follows all the new health precautions.

As always, the service was awesome! We had brunch on Saturday and the food exceeded everyone’s expectations... I mean where else can you get filet mignon eggs Benedict on augratin potato cakes (the brunch special that day). Highly recommended

Date night done right! 😉MESSHALL has outdoor dining available again and it sure was a treat to be able to enjoy the crisp evening air and some amazing dinner 💕 we thought the Brussels sprouts in a Thai chili sauce was the bomb but then that cab short rib was a stunner 😍 and the banana pudding simply sealed the deal 🙌🏾 would be lovely to head back here in warmer weather, which isn’t too long of a wait here in LA 🙂 Andrew and team took such great care of us even though we were still finishing up our meal a wee bit past their closing hours.

We had a shared bbq plate for 2 called “smalls” or “littles” (can’t remember) but it was OUTSTANDING. 2 people can’t finish it but that’s fine too. (We took the rest to go) Came with all the sides and let me say one more time…it was fabulous.
