My experience at Baltaire was actually very bad. I took my friend there for his birthday after bragging about what a great restaurant Baltaire was for the food, service and music. I was greatly disappointed when things went south, from the table we were seated at, to the timing between our food and the lack of service from our waiter. Every single order we put in took a long time to reach our table. Not to mention that even when I noted that this was a birthday dinner, nobody took the courtesy to acknowledge my friend's birthday or to even offer a dessert for the occasion. I've been to Baltaire a couple of times before and had a great experience, but this time, I was completely disappointed and I probably wont be coming back any time soon. Very low quality of service for such a high end restaurant.

Go there for your mom's 77th birthday and ask for Lenore. Period. She is fantastic. The restaurant is beautiful and the meal is special enough to celebrate a life well-lived for 77 years. Thank you so very much.

At this price level food and service should be flawless.....that was not our experience. Steaks were over / under cooked, sides were listless, and the wait staff seemed unfocused. The jazz band in the bar made the dining room uncomfortably loud. The wine list is extensive, but offers no bargains: corkage is $45. We were not charged for one uneaten steak at our table, which we appreciate. Not recommended.

Friends came in from the east coast and wanted a nice dinner on the west side. Normally we would have chosen a place in Beverly Hills, but I had an amazing dinner at Baltaire just weeks before and I wanted to see if they could repeat. They exceeded my expectations. It was not cheap, but it was absolutely delicious!

Love Baltaire for lunch -- but NOT for dinner. Way too loud. Just don't like it at all as an evening dinner date. The bar is fun at night but the restaurant lacks atmosphere at night and any atmosphere that there may be is drowned out by bad acoustics.

I also have a great tasting meal here, whatever I order off the menu is excellent. My only complaint is their wine choices by the glass but that is highly personal. I think the food is much better than Mastros and the environment is quiet and appropriate for this level of dining. Dont touch plates or you will be burned.

I gave a “good” for service because it took the server at least 10 minutes for the initial greeting. In a place like Baltaire the initial greeting should be immediate. Once she came to the table she was good and attentive.

Pretty restaurant but it was so dark I couldn’t read the menu without asking for more candles on the table . We were ushered to the back of the restaurant and we kind of felt forgotten. Waiter seemed to be preoccupied and busy despite it being early and there being not too many customers. He just was more interested in turning the table than us enjoying our food and experience . The busboy served us better. Maybe it was an off night. The salmon was delicious and the best Brussels sprouts I’ve ever eaten in my life . Would come back just for them.

They were off today with service - they brought out the wrong entree, then took another 15 minutes to bring out the correct entree. They deducted the entree off my check, but then overcharged me for entree that I didn’t order.

Food - was excellent. Service - disappointing.

Pricey menu; mostly an expense Acct spot. Nice selection of seafood & meat. Service was good altho’ not hovering; when asked for recommendation she named all the highest priced menu items (which is a pet peeve of mine)! Wine by the glass was ~$20/glass & a good selection.
