                                                    Food wasn’t great for the price. The interior was very well done, but I would probably go back just for the ambiance and drinks.

                                                    The restaurant is absolutely beautiful!! Service was excellent. Our waiter was very helpful and informative and knew his menu well! I would say this is more a restaurant for a very special occasion, a bit fancier then what I wanted for the night but still a great meal!

                                                    Had great food at the bar. The service from the bartender was great. The food was rather expensive though.

                                                    Very underwhelmed by it. Ambience is great, food was good, not wowed by it and the service was awful. Server never even came to offer us another round of drinks during the 2 hrs we were there. Food was very bland.

                                                    Birthday dinner accomplished! Brought my whole family out to enjoy a nice dinner for my birthday, Ardor was truly a memorable experience for my family since they do not go to more high end dinners like this. The service was incredible and the food was DELICIOUS. Drinks were strong but very worth it. I’ll be back!

All of the workers/staff were the absolute friendliest and had the best vibes to them. Always making conversation, and recommended the BEST drinks! (P.S the orange and green drinks were an absolute dreammmmm). Will be coming back for sure, no doubt about it! Food was also really good. Absolutely have no complaints

They went above and beyond to make the birthday celebration special, giving us a card signed by the team and a happy birthday sign on dessert. Amazing staff and some of the best service quality I’ve experienced in a restaurant in LA. Food was amazing too.

                                                    We always enjoy coming to Ardor. The food and ambience is great. Unfortunately the service has become a bit subpar. Our waiter last night had zero interest in our table, could barely make his way over, and when he did he clearly didn't want to be there. He did come to check on our table with a "How is everything?" but didn't even bother to wait for our response - he shot off before we even had the chance to reply. LOL!

                                                    First off, arriving at the hotel entrance with valet and no direction to the restaurant and no signage was a bit confusing. Had to walk throughout the lobby and finally asked at the front desk and had to backtrack our steps to find the restaurant entrance. But gorgeous space it was, loved the decor and architecture. Restaurant is beautiful, dark and moody but inviting and welcoming staff all in white. The food and service was wonderful. Nice touches throughout like new dishes, cutlery between courses and cleaning of table. Loved the concierge service for your leftovers. You get a tag to pick up at the front when you leave. No awkward bags at your table. Will definitely return for the experience but not too often at that price tag. Great for special occasions or maybe casual bar service.

                                                    I wouldn't expect the service that I received from a restaurant charging $15 a person, let alone at $150 pp. Appetizers were good, entree was average, the desert "pizza" is basically a tart that they use a pizza slicer to cut. The server, however, was horrific. Never approached our table even once. Had to track him down to place orders for appetizers, entree, and desert. He had forgotten our order for appetizers and came back to the table and tapped me on the back to get my attention. Thats gotta be a first for me. If food and service were top notch than maybe I would pay $25 for a cocktail but never again for this place

My favorites were the crab tagliatelle, onion rings, milk bread , skirt steak and gooseberry phyllo dough dessert. Will definitely come here again.

                                                    Such mixed feelings about this place. Reservation was at 6pm. First off, I put in a note that it was my birthday & I wanted a really lovely table with ample room. Upon arrival we were seated at a table that was off to the side, practically in the walkway, with zero view for my companion. She gazed at a curtain behind me all evening. The table was quite small, w/no place for our belongings. Meanwhile nearly all of the comfy booths were empty for most of the duration of our meal. Strike 1. The service was inconsistent. One minute we’d have servers attending to us every 5 seconds, then there would be no one there when we needed something. One of the servers was kind of abrasive and pushy about what he wanted us to order and what he thought was good or bad on the menu. For example, I asked how the mille feuille was and his response was “eh, it’s okay.” He then tried to push their highlighted dessert on to us repeatedly. It was very off putting. Strike 2. Our appetizer came out rather promptly, and then it took a rather long time for our food to arrive. When it did come, it was cold. Delicious, but cold. Strike 3. Sigh. The milk bread was super good (and served very hot!). The risotto was rather bland. The crispy potato, raw cauliflower, and the carrot dishes were all very tasty. The mille feuille was scrumptious, in direct opposition to the servers opinion. My wine was lovely & my companion’s cocktails were strong. I found the biggest disappointment to be that they mentioned that they knew it was my birthday multiple times, but never once did anything to make the meal feel special. No candle, no special dessert, not even one of the best tables. Kind of a let down for my 40th birthday dinner with a dear friend I haven’t seen in years. The atmosphere is a definite cool vibe, the menu had a interesting design, and the food was appetizing (albeit a bit chilly), but I’m not sure the price justifies a meal here. Over $300 for two people and my friend left hungry.

                                                    I made the reservation at the time that about 4 hours ago, it’s Wednesday and have a lot of time it’s available, I called them at 6pm to ask for change the time from 6:15pm to 7pm (they open at 6). They told me “they don’t have any available” until I told them I just made the reservation a few hours ago, I knew they do have a lot of available after 7. Then they are willing to change my original time to 7. I came for celebrate my birthday, I ordered the lamb cooked under pine for $58, (it was 3 pieces in the order), when we finished the meal, I asked for togo (cause I only ate 1 piece of the lamb, so I want to box the rest 2 for togo), check, and bring out my cake. I wait had been a while, they gave me the little card, it’s a notice about they don’t take the responsibility for any damage I give them to keep, they should give this notice when I give them my cake. They even ask me do I want them help me take off the cake box and light the candles or not? I waited had been another while, they brought out the cake, the cake is off the box and lights the 3 candles, light 3 candles it means people dead in our culture! After we took the pictures, they gave the cake box back to us, the top of the box it was have a set of the plates, it’s gone! We stepped out the Edition we remembered they didn’t give the togo lamb to us, and I didn’t hear anyone say happy birthday to me, it’s very bad and very upset dinner for my birthday.

                                                    Celebrated our 10 year anniversary last night and had Anthony as our server. This was our second time at Ardor in the last year and I honestly think we had Anthony as our server last time. He was amazing, very attentive, personable, and helped us make a few decisions food wise. The food was fresh, delicious, and I love that it doesn’t leave me overly bloated or stuffed afterwards. The Tandoor Carrots will forever be one of our favorite dishes.
