Love the owners, staff and above all the food. This is a true find.
Love this place! The food is amazing and the decor is perfect. I can't wait to go back and try the other dishes on the menu. You MUST try this place.
Food was delicious! However, portion size was wildly variable, with one dish (chicken) normal-sized and the other (crab cakes) not nearly enough food to constitute an entree for an adult.
Best service and the food was delicious
We had a wonderful meal. The food and service met or exceeded our expectations. The Mushroom Tourte and French Onion Soup were both delicious, and the soup wasn’t salty, as it often is. I thoroughly enjoyed the Beef Bourguignon. My spouse ordered the Scottish Salmon, and the house style is medium rare; she asked for medium. When she got 1/4 way into it, it was rare in the middle and she sent it back. Here’s one of the best parts: they could not have been nicer nor more accommodating. They brought us complimentary pomme frites while waiting, and the chef/owner came out to apologize personally, which was very nice and unexpected. His wife and partner was very warm and nice, too. We finished with a lovely slice of Meyer Lemon Pie. We enjoyed the music played and commented on it during our meal, it made a nice atmosphere without being too loud or obnoxious. As it was our anniversary, the chef came back to us at dessert and spoke with us again. We both appreciated the personal, family feel and were made to feel welcome and appreciated. We will definitely return.
GREAT!!!! So few french restaurants in LA that are "real" Awesome food my wife and I love going there - a real gem.
Food was excellent, service was a bit slow but not painfully so. Wine was on point and the steak frites was a crowd pleaser. Will definitely be heading back.
WE have been here many times before going to the Pantages. It's convenient and lovely. The food & service are always great
Bravo, chef !
The bouillabaisse was everything I've expected, light, warming and full of flavor. Everything tasted so fresh. The fish was the main star of the dish and the saffron its co-star. And not to forget the Rosé wine de Provence paired with it... I was in heaven!
I also enjoyed very much the rib eye prime steak with cognac peppercorn sauce, truffle oil pomme frites and a strong red Bordeaux wine.
It was just perfect.
Hard to believe I was in L. A.
This was our first time eating at A Food Affair, but it won’t be our last. There was so much attention to detail and little artistic flourishes in every from the food to the decor and tableware. At the same time it was relaxed and unpretentious. Top 5 meal in LA for us.
I’ve been to this restaurant a few times. It’s always been a lovely experience, they’re very welcoming when you walk in and the restaurant is charming.
one word: perfection! After spending time in France last year I would have sworn there wouldn't be a proper American equivalent. Silly me! Christian and his gorgeous wife, Babette have brought amazing food to the table in this incredible French restaurant. I savored every bite and basked in the warm and welcoming service. I cannot criticize even a single moment of my journey, which started with the mushroom tourte - which was incredibly delicious, and progressed to the grass fed Hangar steak special (medium rare, but of course) and then to the creme brûlée, served with fruit and a lovely medley of chocolate and nuts, which worked incredibly well. Everything was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The service was immaculately timed in respect for each course and allowing the guest to process the delicious food before commencing the next. I shall return and will be trying the chicken liver, the bone marrow, or the head cheese for appetizer next time... I was a bit spoiled for choice! I walked back to the hotel to aid in digestion, with what was left of an exceptionally fine red (Omen) in my purse (for later!). A divine and perfect French meal in every sense.
My favorite rib eye in town. Chef is amazing and I love that he often comes out to say hello when the meal is complete.
Quiet restaurant, respectful and helpful staff
Amazing food quality, preparation and presentation
Great wines, great food
Excellent French food and attentive service. Reasonably priced.
Food was OK, overpriced. Bone marrow had no marrow.
One of the most authentic French cooking in Los Angeles. Great service. They have a great wine list, but that means the end of "no corkage BYOB", so it's not quite the great deal that it used to be.
Delicious and decadent. Like your in France but in NYC but in L.A. perfect.
A cute, chic, romantic French style restaurant. Great for date night, anniversaries, or meeting the in-laws. The flavor palette of the cuisine will impress your guests and leave you missing more. 100% recommend AFA.
Was overall underwhelmed. Nothing was bad but everything was just OK.
First time at this restaurant and will be back again. Food was great. Service was very good
The best food I have eaten in Los Angeles, by a mile. Everything on the menu was great. We got two appetizers and 4 different meals with duck, lamb, crabcakes and the vergetarian dish. Then we got 3 desserts. All more amazing than the next, and I never write reviews on food.
The food was absolutely amazing. I believe our server was Frederick? Can’t quite remember his name but he was phenomenal. He recommended the duck confit, and that was the best duck I’ve ever had. The chef also came out to greet us at the end of our meal and it was just a lovely experience overall. Can’t wait to return.
Went with friends to celebrate 2 birthdays - they live in the neighborhood and didn't know about this small, charming French restaurant. The food and service were excellent, and overall it was relatively quieter than many restaurants. The chef sent out a birthday dessert, which was very good, and a lovely gesture. We will definitely return even though we don't live nearby.
Went to A Food Affair for my birthday dinner. Service was amazing. Food was rich, hearty, and tasty. The desserts were incredible and I ate so much I couldn't eat one more bite. My only suggestion is to have better beer options. I'm a wine person myself, so I was ok, but my boyfriend isn't. Natural wines would also be a great addition.
Great experience, chef came to say hello. Felt like they were really welcoming and cared about creating an inviting atmosphere for each of their patrons.
Best meal we’ve ever had! Cozy atmosphere, lovely staff!
The food is amazing and every bite delicious. The noise level was reduced significantly when one of our party requested the techno music (which doesn't fit) to be turned down. The service was friendly but not as attentive as we would have liked. We had to flag down other waiters more than once to get our waiter. He also was quite dismissive when one of the guests asked if the full branzino could be taken to the kitchen to be deboned (something many restaurants will do).
The ambiance is great and it is nice to see they are so busy, but we do miss the past when the owner would go from table to table chatting making everyone feel like they were his guest.
This place was so exceptional, I don't even know where to start. The food, ambience, service, and more were just so warm, lovely, and top-notch.
Terrific food, great service, nice atmosphere--- who could ask for more!
I had a wonderful experienced. The lady at the front desk was very attentive and also gave advise of the street parking. Just be sure not to park at the shopping plaza on the lot. The food was very flavorful. Definitively will go back and try other dishes.
Excellent food and service! Everyone working there seemed to be French (a good thing in a French restaurant) My wife ordered a prime ribeye, rare, and was unhappy with the texture. Not only did the chef (who I believe was the owner come to our table to address her concerns, he actually brought another steak (uncooked) to our table so she could see it, and recommended that she might prefer the texture of the ribeye if it was cooked a little longer. This was done in such a friendly and caring manner, we could see he really wanted to make sure we were happy with our experience. The replacement steak was superb. The waitstaff was wonderful and everyone there seemed knowledgeable about the best wine to pair with our meal, the food choices etc. Best of all, everyone was so friendly, and the chef sent us a dish of Macarons at the end of our meal. Our new favorite French restaurant in Los Angeles!
One note for first time visitors, there is no parking lot or valet (at least not on Friday night) and the restaurant does not have a large sign visible while driving (it’s painted on the wall) just a small sign reading AFA. We drove past it twice looking for it. There was good street parking, though
Amazing! Took my wife to an anniversary dinner here and it was spectacular as always.
Great restaurant, eat here every time I’m in town, the owners are fantastic the food is unbelievable great place
We tried A Food Affair after reading a newspaper article by a food journalist. This is the place if you are looking for excellent french food. The Boeuf Bourgignon is the best we've had comparing many restaurants. A "must order" item is the Mushroom Tourte, and we also enjoyed the crab cakes, lamb shank, ribeye steak, the Meyer Lemon pie, and the apple tart. Last time we had the escargot which is prepared in a totally fresh way (instead of the normal style drenched in butter and garlic). Since we've enjoyed everything they've prepared, next time we will try new dishes.
Great choice for a special occasion. We ordered the mushroom torte, french onion soup, farmers market vegetables, and chocolate pot de creme (dessert special). Everything was delicious.
The noise level for this restaurant is off the charts. If you want to have a conversation it is not the place to do it. Also, after trying several wines offered by the glass I would advise going on Tuesday and bringing your own bottle when there is no corkage fee.
Bone marrow appetizer was overly greasy and duck confit was just a fatty stringy duck leg. The fries were excellent and the saving grace of the meal. Hard to find parking. No valet.
If you appreciate real French cooking this is a disappointing experience. Except for the fries.
Our food was perfect - however, since the portions were so small, we decided to order deserts (since the reviews raved about them) and frankly I would not order desert here unless you love extremely rich food.
Too rich for our digestive systems. Better to stay with an entree and then go home for a simple desert to top it off. The chef came out to say hello - nice. Our waiter was not that nice. If he was nicer - I would have given this restaurant a five star.
Got a lot of attention because my husband and I went on a weeknight. The meats were really tender and will definitely be a place re recommend to friends and go back to.
A gem of a restaurant. The decor was like a French cafe. Very cozy and extremely casual. The food was very good and the service was at its best. The staff was friendly and the Chef greeted us and put a very friendly touch to the entire dining experience. I hope to be back soon to try some of their other dishes. The arugula salad was wonderful and the crab cakes were heavenly. Recommend all to try it out.
