    Quite disappointing if I’m honest. Venue was lovely, food was okay. Nothing to hype about. Was my partners 30th. Also had customers birthday as well. They received complimentary Prosecco and cake. I know as we were sitting next to them. I specifically said it’s my partners 30th and she got nothing. I mentioned this and nothing was done after. Waiter said “but I’m you’re friend” what the bloody hell does that do for me. I don’t know you, why are you calling me your friend. Give my partner a cake to make it feel special for her. Overall, I’m highly disappointed and will never go back again because of this.

    Service, ambiance, and food were all amazing. All of the staff was super attentive and knowledgeable. Our food was taking a little while which was fine for us since we were in no rush but our waiter gave us a free drink each as a thank you for our patience. I would 10/10 recommend and will definitely be returning.

    Came across this just looking through Yelp. It was a great experience. If you’re looking for a place with amazing cocktails great appetizers and don’t mind having a bit of a wait time for things (it was fully booked restaurant) then this is the place for you. We were seated on the sides back near the bar, which felt like the “white chicks reject table” but it was actually very pleasant. It kept us away from the noise. The Japanese bread is a MUST appetizer, it just melts in your mouth and taste like fluffy butter with a hint of salt. The yellowfin crudo was excellent and enough to share with 3 people. I got the Shrimp and it was amazing. That Polenta was top tier, along with the sauce. It had a touch of heat, which was nice. I would advise to stay away from “Corn Flake dessert”, it would have been great if there was a crunch factor but with the milk in it, it just made it super soggy. The Hazelnut bar was PERFECT. I would come back for that. We shared that among 3 of us. Now would I come back here? I would but not anytime soon but would come back in a few months.

    This place is definitely waaaay over priced for what it is. As someone who frequents fine dining often this place was definitely very mediocre. The food was just ok but the price was specialty pricing. I don’t mind paying 500 for 2 people IF the service and food is amazing. But unfortunately we were met with attitude right when we walked in the door. We were being SCOLDED for being 5 MINUTES EARLY. I’ve never minded going to the bar for a drink before my table but to be told that we’re too early and it messes up the system is crazy!! The restaurant is beautiful but I’d probably only come back here to sit at the bar for drinks and not food

    My party of 8, was extremely disappointed in the food, the set menu, and the service. For $200 a head, you would think your are getting quality food. The short rib was hard and chewy. The lobster was dry and chewy. The dessert was tiny and disappointing. The salad/appetizers was one tiny piece of persimmon. Our reservation was at 9:30pm and didn’t get sat till 45 mins later. The whole night we only were able to order two drinks because the service was so slow. We got butter knives to cut are hard dry meat. I’ll never go here again and beyond embarrassed that I took my 7 friends here for NYE.

    Great location, memorable ambiance, attentive and professional staff. However, NYE fixed menu wasn't worth it for me for the following reasons: 1) 2 of the dishes were doused in salt which killed all tasting buds in my mouth. 2) Short rib (as you know is generously fatty) shouldn't be the main course of ANY upscale restaurant. 3) Dried truffles on one of dishes. I couldn't taste the truffle. Final thoughts: I wouldn't recommend their NYE menu as for the same price you may find much better options.

    One of the best dinners I’ve had in LA. Every dish was a star, starting from the beef tartar to the onion rings and of course the milk bread! The Staff were excellent, attentive and coursed our a fantastic meal. Highly recommend if you want to impress friends, family or a date.

    We had a family dinner at Ardor yesterday, The service and personal were great and friendly, but we were a little bit disappointed by the cuisine. Portions are very small and meals served are way too salty …like the bill! Dommage, les plats sont originaux et bien présentés, mais le sel mis en abondance dans les plats annihile les goûts !

    Everything we ordered was delicious. The service was impeccable and friendly. The milk bread, tuna tartare, Alaskan king crab pasta, Branzino, braised short ribs special, Mont Blanc special desert, & banana coffee. Yum yum yum! I licked every plate clean. But if I had to choose a favorite it’s tied between the tuna tartare and the crab pasta. Every bite melts in your mouth. It’s just enough to make you wanting more.

    We arrived early and within 1 hour, the restaurant was pretty filled. It took awhile for our server to greet us, but he was very pleasant. The menu was very diverse, but I was a little disappointment with my meal. Their wine list was fairly comprehensive, and the sommelier was very helpful. We had valet'd and the cost was pretty expensive for dinner parking ($42.00), which is crazy! Overall it was an underwhelming dinner experience, and I probably will never go back. So sad...

    Everyone in the restaurant was fantastic. From the host and hostess. Blonde gentleman and dark haired lady with glasses. They were lovely. Truly exceptional. The waiter and the bus staff also fantastic. Food was delicious. Thank you for a wonderful experience. ONE PROBLEM. The valet and parking. None available. Sent us away. No parking anywhere close. They were rude and unhelpful. It is a terrible way to begin the evening. Thankfully the ardor staff made up for it and changed our moods. (This isn’t the first time).
