    One of my favorite restaurants in LA - so bummed it closed but so pleased was able to eat there beforehand. Pork Belly Pappardelle, Skirt Steak, Lamb Lettuce Cups, Ribs -- all amazing as always! Look forward to the next iteration.

    Sunday night dinner at Odys and Penelope is fantastic, a nice mix of couples, family groups and friends meeting up. The full menu is available but the Sunday night sharing menu is really good value (you share a large main and a desert between 2 and get a couple of starters as well) - there are 3 choices of main course, 2 meat and 1 fish so as long as you're not veggie it works well. Waiter recommended a really good wine as well, so we spent a bit more but had a great evening.

    Food was wonderful. Service, however, left a bit to be desired. Had to wait way too long for a waiter to check if everything was OK and later to see if we wanted dessert.

    The food was stunningly good. We go out for date night every weekend and it isn't often you find all good things between 5-6 dishes. The only sub par dish we got was the pork everything was delicious and they have a spread of sauces you can get with a range of flavors that was an awesome compliment.

    We have been going to O&P since it opened a few years ago. We were fans of Hatfield's on Melrose and sad to see it go, but we have enjoyed O&P since that time. The food is always creative and exceptional! From cheese puffs & crab focaccia to Snap Pea Caesar Salad & Brussels sprouts dish to Mary's chicken and the papparadelle... not to speak of the scrummy donut desert. Also excellent Manhattan and Ground Effect Cab. We didn't know about it before we went, but our charming waiter (Ethan) asked if we wanted to see the Sunday night supper menu. It was a great deal and we really appreciated the suggestion. The service was top notch: professional, prompt and friendly. We will continue to enjoy it and hope others do as well. Thanks O&P!

    Great atmosphere and ambiance, the menu is fun and has a good variety to choose from. The food was quite good, with some simple details adding flavor and crunch to dishes. Service was lacking the night we visited, though some appetizers came out quick, our entrees took what seemed almost an hour to arrive. I don't mind waiting and completely understand when popular kitchen gets backed up, but our server told us "oh don't worry, they're plating your dish now" -- only to have to wait another 30 minutes. Then service charge 18% was automatically placed on our party of 3. This seemed disingenuous, thus the low rating for service.

    Anything the Hatfields cook/grill/bake is amazing. Always well prepared with the freshest ingredients. On a previous visit we had a fabulous waiter who enhanced the meal. Friendly and charming and eager to explain the menu and his favorite dishes, etc. Unfortunately, this past Saturday night we really didn't like our waiter. And when you don't like the person taking care of you it does affect the meal. He was distant and intimidating. He didn't really seem interested in being there or answering our questions. We waited quite a while between finishing dinner and dessert. As a matter of fact we had to ask for dessert menus. It's as if he thought he knew us and didn't like us. He added 18% gratuity, as well. Is that normal for 2 people to dine? BTW, I never give bad reviews. I just don't bother. But Odys and Penelope should be better than this as far as service. It's in our hood and we want to feel free to drop in and have a pleasant evening.

    We love Odys and Penelope. It is a neighborhood favorite. The food is so unique and delicious! The cheese puffs are must-have starters. Too many good things to choose from--which is a good problem to have.

    This was my third -- and final -- visit to Odys + Penelope. Every time I have been there, there has been only one item on the menu that appealed to me, and every time I have tried to order that item, I have been informed that it's not available. The first two times were because the restaurant was sold out; the most recent time was because the smoker was out of order. So I ended up settling for the snap pea caesar salad, which was mostly cabbage, hardly any snap peas. I had to make myself a sandwich when I got home at 11 pm. Goodbye forever, Odys + Penelope!

    Good food, not fussy. Excellent service. Portions were incredibly small compared to other similar restaurants. Was one of the most expensive bills I've had among many great Los Angeles restaurants..left somewhat hungry still afterwards.

    We thought every bite was delicious, creative and perfectly cooked. The cheese puffs are very rich and filling but irresistible. You have to be careful not to eat too many or you won’t have room for dessert—that’s what happened to us. We had a fabulous umami-perfect Caesar salad and luscious tri-tip. The roasted broccolini tasted complex and satisfying. Very good pasta. The waiter described each dish accurately and gave us very good advice about wines. We’re going back soon.

    Food was wonderful and full of flavor.. Very loud restaurant, but a great energy and the design is on point. Our server was condescending, so that put a damper on the evening, especially since I was celebrating my Birthday. All in all, we had a good time and I’d recommend the restaurant.

    This is a great restaurant and exciting because as a Brazilian restaurant, its delicious food is unlike any other L.A. restaurant we know of except maybe Hippo. It puts these hard to get into ones to shame....a true foodie's restaurant. Server Phillip was great. Just A+ excellent are: Cabernet Sauvignon Ground Effect, Grilled Equadorian white prawns with ginger chermoula, beet salad - best of the 100+ we have had, snap peas Caesar, Papardelle with pork belly (tiny pieces) bolognese, lemon dessert. The only bad - or even jbelow A+ - dish was the brussel sprouts fried rice sambal with a silly egg on top.
