Not the best experience I’ve had a restaurant. Totally understand the staffing issue but dinner for 4 should be over 1.5 hrs.

Great food, consistent- which is important. Service is spotty,
seem disorganized in table assignments. Required reminders for
some of basic elements such as proper silverware for food being served. Prices have escalated, particularly bar, $17 & $19 for
a cocktail is obscene.

We had a reservation and was told that we would have to wait 20 to 30 minutes for a table, unless we are okay to sit in the bar. We did sit in the bar. The waiter was over welmed with tables to cover. The service was not good because of lack of waiters.
I will not return to this restaurant.

Hostess made us wait 30 minutes in spite of reservation
Forgot about us while we waited at the bar
Very slow service , food used to be better before
Plus owner comes around checking all guests
Maybe Covid times have changed attitude of establishment s
Place was doing brisk business, , maybe they don’t care
As they think they have enough customers
Reccomendations . Improve food and service or you will start losing clientele

we are long time customers. Tonight seemed out of sync. Perhaps labor shortage affecting service?
Food slow, waiter had tables inside and out so we didn't feel we had anyone watching over us.

Service was really inconsistent. Waitress disappeared for about 40 minutes. My fish was dripping in oil, my friend's pasta was good. It was impossible to get anyone's attention even to refill a water glass. Not at all what I expected.

I am really disappointed for tonight’s dinner. Total 3 of us ordered 2 sets from Dine LA menu, one regular Caesar Salad and one calamari. Dungeness crab slide is okay, we selected cioppino and sea bass dishes as main course from dine LA menu. This was a total disaster . The seafood is not fresh and the taste is horrible. The service is not good too. We asked for for ice water and the waiter never delivered .

One of my favorite places. I always try to take my friends here to try it. The lamb chops were good. All their pastas are delicious. Their drinks are good. Not the sweetest if you’re into really sweet drinks.

I've been going here for decades and it's always tried and true. Had two standbys- the chicken lasagna and chicken piccata with mashed potatoes. Started with heirloom tomatoes and burrata. Delicious with lovely service. There's a reason this place has been here forever!

I loved this restaurant! Food was the best I’ve ever had. You can tell everything is made from scratch. Although, I went on a Sunday and you can tell the staff were clearly tired and wanted to go home. I felt that energy coming from them but overall I can tell they are all such great staff!

Outstanding meal with exemplary service on a Thursday night, starting with the Caprese salad which used sweet yellow and red cherry tomatoes with the burrata; the kitchen added some anchovies as we requested. We had the chicken piccata with artichoke hearts and the fresh swordfish which was amazing - sweet and tender and perfectly seasoned. We both raved about our meals. The only disappointment was the apple pie a la mode which was a small individual pie and made a larger ratio of crust to fruit than we prefer. Service was outstanding - prompt, friendly and knowledgeable, and the restaurant owner even did a round during the meal to chat with us and make sure we were satisfied. We've been here before and will definitely return next time we're in the area.

I had a great lunch at Mi Piace with a friend. We arrived just as they were opening, were seated right away and had perfect, unhurried service. I had a salad with grilled shrimp and it was exactly what I wanted. My friend had a pasta dish which she loved as well. The bread service is always wonderful - and warm!

Me Piace is a great place to meet up with family and friends because it is consistently great with something for everyone.

This was our first visit to Mi Piaci. We started with cocktails, hubby ordered their $23 Old Fashion and I ordered a Chopin dirty martini. Hubby's drink literally had a burnt/black orange peel, that he said the drink had a burnt taste to it. My martini came not dirty. Ordered bruschetta, it was ok. For dinner I reluctantly ordered the seafood spaghetti at my husbands urging. He ordered the lasagna. The seafood spaghetti was to have 1.5 lb of lobster in it. Little did I know, all was in the shell and covered with the marinara sauce. Almost impossible to eat, it was a mess! The tails were cut in half, the claws were not cracked, had to use a cracker, Red sauce covered my hands. The 1.5 lobster was not 1.5lbs, very little meat,. I mentioned to the server, that it was not close to 1.5 lbs. They brought another claw, no apologies. Not exactly what I was expecting for $47! My husband said the lasagna was ok, not the best he's had.
We probably won't go back.

Mi Piace never disappoints. From the start to the finish. We had a delightful server who took notice of the celebration we were having for our Nephew who was starting Grad School at UCLA. They brought him a beautiful dessert at the end of our dinner with a Grand Candle of Flames to celebrate this special event. Thank you to all of you at Mi Piace for making this a perfect night out.

Always wonderful. Service was slow but that’s very rare. One of my all time favorite restaurants get a pass because i don’t remember another time service was slow ever. Food still came out and had its high quality as always.
