The best dining experience in many years! Food, service, ambiance were all first class. Definitely a must. Not an inexpensive night out, but worth it.

The food was good although a little salty and greasy. The salads were good. The service was uneven with big lapses of time between server visits.. The prices are high for lunch but the ambience is nice for special occasions.

Our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable! He suggested great dishes and wine. Also, he made sure I get the birthday dessert right on time!

Delicious food and GORGEOUS space. For a party hotel, the Ardor is quite mature, well thought out and beautifully executed. They have a good sized menu that includes yummy non-alcoholic cocktails, as well as several dessert options. Start w the “risotto” - it surpassed everyone’s expectations! And the whole grilled fish was also good but the best was my roasted chicken- SO JUICY and flavorful!!! One of the best roasted chicken EVER!
And did I mention the beautiful, lush interior? Service is excellent too. Will definitely be back!

This is my new favorite restaurant! The service was perfect and the food is the best I've had in LA. If you can, get Reily as your server - he makes great recommendations and his timing is perfect. The atmosphere is unique and hip. I highly recommend Ardor and I can't wait to go back!

Disappointing weekend brunch menu not nearly as inspired as weekday lunch menu. Food was excellent 'though not what we had in mind based on the online lunch offerings

It was worth trying once at least for the beautiful ambience. The food however was a very mixed bag. Many dishes were far too salty - onion rings, duck, prawns. Overall the veggie starters were the best things we tried. Not convinced of the Gooseberry Pizza dessert that although good was far too sweet and had no flavour of gooseberry.

I will dine here again to give the restaurant another try. The food is fabulous and the wait staff is nice however the service is SLOW. We waited well over an hour for the main course after a few of us received appetizers. Dinner lasted 3.5 hours due to the slow service and the food taking an exceptionally long time. I was very disappointed with our experience unfortunately. If the food wasn’t great, I wouldn’t be back. Hoping next visit will change this review..

Food was obscenely overpriced, oversalted, and tiny portions. Cocktails were tasty but also overpriced. Service was snooty and French. Lovely ambiance and decor though.

Service was fantastic. Food was delicious. The only misstep was the affrogato (they put in a few too many competing flavors). Excellent vegetarian choices. Would definitely recommend.

Love everything about this place! The lush greenery is something I have never seen before in a restaurant. The milk bread is not to be missed! We also sat right across from Adam Sandler and his wife so that was kind of fun:) This new hotel where the restaurant is located is absolutely gorgeous. Highly recommend

Did not feel welcomed by the staff. Had to argue in order to get our reserved table. Additionally, as a guest of the hotel, I tried to make another reservation for later that day and was told there was nothing they could do. Besides convenience to my room, not much more to compliment.

Great place - management chaotic - 1h45min waiting for main course - left side of plate double salted right side no salt at all - chicken in cold casserole, of course also cold..

Dined the other day at Silverlake Ramen for 10% of the cost much much better - and happier!!!

Loved everything this day besides the hostess. She was very stuck up and talked down. The waitress made it up to us, she was so amazing....or else we were all ready to leave the restaurant.

Food was not up to our expectations. Very small portions and overpriced. Pork belly and black bass were extremely salty. Out of many dishes ordered we liked the octopus the best. Starting Chardonnay price was $96
