Fabulous food, attractive room, moderate noise level and a great server, Christopher
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.
Very lovely atmosphere and delicious food. A little pricey but if you know that going into it you can save up ;)
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!
Nice ambiance but very bad hostess service and attitude. Long wait even with reservation.
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.
Everything was great!
Incredible quality. Chef came over to say hi. Set ice was excellent. Crowd was fun.
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.
Excellent food, music was too loud.
Everything was 5 stars but they made us wait ~45 minutes for our table of 8.
I celebrated my birthday here and everything was fantastic!
Great culinary experience
Amazing all around
This is a very special place. You can tell right away that the place is top notch. the waiter, Riley?, was outstanding. the menu is like no other place
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!!!
The restaurant is beautiful, the vibe is hip, the food is excellent, and the service is outstanding. We will definitely be going back again and again.
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
Lovely, sophisticated atmosphere and relatively quiet. Very comfortable.
Food is unique high end vegetarian and meat combination ---the lamb was outstanding as were any of the starters and vegetable main courses.
Loved everything but prices were to high. If you don’t watch it it cost me 400 for 2
Love the restaurant. The service is outstanding. The food is amazing and the drinks are just perfection
Superb elegant and innovative food. I wished for a cookbook to try to recreate some at home
Great food, great drinks, great service. Everything was perfect.
Every cocktail and every dish was superb! Elegant atmosphere and impeccable service created a very special evening for celebrating a birthday
Small portions and undesirable menu. Fish was served with skin and tasted “fishy”. Would not return
Great all around. Very chic and unbelievable service.
Everything we ordered was unexpectedly good. Service was excellent, and the room is beautiful. A perfect evening.
1. Its expensive - is the food worth the price? Meh.... Including tip it was $300 for my wife and I. We share a started, had a main course each and shared a desert. We had a glass of wine each and a cocktail. The food was fine, nothing that you could jump up and down about which is a pity as the price point would suggest that it is exceptional and it isn't. My Wife had a shrimp main dish and I had a filet, neither were incredible but certainly not bad. The pork belly starter was good and the milk bar desert was good too. Notable were the service and the ambiance. Our server was attentive, informative and very pleasant. The ambience is cool and quiet, the tables a good size and seating comfortable. Would I go back? Not in a hurry but I would go back. Great for a date night and they will look after you which is always nice.
Weird that they don’t serve breakfast/brunch later on the weekends. Menu items were a bit confusing.
Drinks took 45 minutes to come out the first time and 30 minutes the second time. Food portions were small. Probably the worst service I've EVER had and it wasn't even that packed. At this price point, everybody should be treated and expect much better.
Great ambience! Service was good. The appetizer was nice. My entrée, a fillet, was very small overcooked and overpriced. Not great. Disappointed with the meal compared to other restaurants. There’s a nightclub just below that started sound check in the middle of my meal at 8:30. I do not wanna eat a meal sitting on a sub woofer.
