We had a wonderful time at A Food Affair! We went to celebrate a birthday. Food, service, and ambience were great. It was a cozy spot and I look forward to going there again (this was my first time at the restaurant).

Great food!!! A bit pricy for what is served, but quality is excellent. Dessert menu kind of limited. I still give it a five star in general.

Everyone in my party thoroughly enjoyed their appetiser, main course and dessert. We had the endive salad, onion soup, mushroom tourer, beef bourguignon, Mary’s chicken, salmon/calamari, apple tart and crepe brûlée. Service was friendly and timely. Chef Christian stopped by the table and his wife Babette was the hostess. They even provided macarons and jellied candies as a special birthday gift.

We had a reservation on Sunday night but I don’t think it ever completely filled. We were seated right away and our server went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and that we had everything we needed. The food was amongst the best I’ve ever had - from appetizer to main course, I had the most delicious hangar steak of my life and my partner had the lamb shank which literally fell off the bone. It was our anniversary and the chef (who I think is also part owner) came to our table to congratulate us. I would highly recommend this restaurant and it’s staff for a truly wonderful dining experience. A true culinary delight!!! Thank you so much!

The ambiance is quaint, charming and chic. Service is outstanding and everything and everyone is genuine and authentic. The beef bourguignon and pappardelle are served in cast iron skillets —SUPERB. The other dish we had was the cast iron chicken —WOW. For dessert we had apple and peach tart a la mode—FANTASTIC!!! To top it off they presented my daughter with a complimentary birthday creme brûlée. What more can I say. FAVORITE!!!!

Absolutely stunning. I don't use the words "exquisite" lightly, or ironically, but so it was. Great for our honeymoon. Amazing bone marrow dish, duck confit, salmon, and so on. Chef introduced himself personally, and waitress was incredible. 13/10, we loved it.

simply amazing dining experience.....every dish had such unique taste.....and so many dishes complement each other nicely.....not an extensive menu, rather a smaller, wonderful selection.....excellent wine list too.....from the mushroom tourte and escargot potatoe shell to the duck leg confit and two evening specials - a whole roasted snapper and hangar steak frites, we were all in heaven....and the creme brule stellar....so looking forward to a return visit.....great waiter and the chef came out to extend birthday wishes and check on our experience.....like i said, simply amazing

Everything was wonderful as usual. I went on the last night of DineLA.

The deal wasn't as good as 2 years ago when I noted that the prix fixe was $35 and included a glass of wine. This year it was $49 and no wine for the same thing.

I went to A Food Affair for DineLA and we sat outside in the patio. I thought the noise level would be fine but with LA's racing cars it was just way too loud to be sitting next to the street. The service was great and friendly. The food was good but also a bit too heavy for me. I loved the appetizers and dessert but the lamb that I got for the entree tasted very gamey which I'm not a fan of. It was super tender and juicy but the taste of the gamey-ness just got to me and I couldn't finish my meal.

We did Dine LA and had 3 course meal. I had the mushroom tarte which was my favorite part of the meal.
The mushrooms were cooked perfectly and texture meaty and the taste was amazing. Would order again. The main course was Beef Bourguignon. Loved the presentation. All dinners came on a log charger, the beef was in a cassoulet and the pasta/veggies in small cast iron skillet (very rustic looking).
My son had lamb and was incredibly happy. Daughter-in-law had same as me. Desserts: chocolate pot d'creme and lemon pie. Lemon pie had a lot going on as it was topped with a combo of mascarpone and whipped cream, chopped pistachios, pieces of hard meringue, and most delious bits of dried tangerines.
A very lovely and satisfying meal. Chef is so sweet, comes out to make sure everyone is happy!
Wonderful experience all around, good service, and charming atmosphere.

Came here for Dine LA. They accommodated request to change number of people in the party. Hostess who greeted us was not too friendly. She had us choose between seating outside in the patio or by the kitchen. Since it was hot outside, we decided to take the table by the kitchen. Restaurant was not full since our reservations was for 15 minutes after they opened for business.
Food was great and price was appropriate for Dine LA. Service was great, too, made up for the hostess’ attitude. Owner/chef also came out and asked about the food. It’s all about customer service, right?

We tried the DineLA menu. Food was quite delicious and service was excellent. Overall experience was great. The only one thing I want to say is the food quantity is a bit too small in my opinion. I was actually not feeling full after finishing all three courses. I guess that's the French style afterall :)

We had crab cakes, which had a strange, stringy texture; rib eye, which was almost spot-on, except for the the bland sauce, which lacked depth-of-flavor (mushrooms and a nice red wine in the sauce would have helped); escargot potato shells, which were pretty good flavor-wise, but terrible texture-wise because they cooked the kale, so the spines became hard and stringy, like bits of straw hay that snagged in your throat-- also the potato shells were too thick; and the arugula salad, which had so many different flavors but somehow not the right balance and texture and lacked any exceptional tasting ingredients (certainly no dry farm early girl tomatoes from the Ground Swell farm in Santa Cruz, so it was just a mediocre salad). For what we paid, it was a bit disappointing overall. The service was great though, as was the atmosphere, but I am boggled as to how this restaurant received 4.5 stars on Yelp.
