The experience of entering the restaurant on Saturday night in early December was like walking into a fun, welcoming Holiday Party. Everyone (20’s-80’s) was having a grand time. I met lovely people while waiting for my friend and without ordering a drink. ( would have ordered one had I been approached by a waiter)

Stellar meal - Crab Louie Dover Sole and Brussels Sprouts all perfect and beautifully split for the two of us.
Despite the noise the dinner was relaxing and festive.
The perfect start to the Holiday Season.

The service keeps getting worse each time. Our server should have been working at Denny’s. Ruined a company dinner with the terrible service. I will never go back again! Clearly they dont care anymore.

The food, the drinks, the service were all perfect and fairly valued given their quality. However the room which should be very comfortable was just too loud for easy conversation across the table even as our late evening meal wound down into a near empty restaurant.

It is one of the most expensive restaurants in Los Angeles but my chicken dish was a overcooked mass of mostly boney chicken parts. To pay $40 for inedible chicken sucks. I went home and ate a bag of beef jerky. The restaurant itself was beautiful and you should probably only order a steak here which will set you back a car payment.

Somehow the food falls short of the beautifully described menu. From a kalamata dip that tasted like a glorified onion dip to a mac and cheese that really failed to deliver. The service was top notch though it was sad that one of the items that was just tasted was not taken off the bill. The bread was delicious but all other items were truly forgettable. Let's hope that in the future the food lives up to the stylish setting - right now it is just above the Cheesecake Factory that used to be in the same space.

Beautiful dining room, attentive service, excellent meats. Came here to entertain an out-of-town guest and wanted someplace meat-centric that didn't feel stodgy but also didn't feel like a night club. Baltaire hit the spot. I was warned about the sky-high prices, so as long as you know what you're paying, then you can get on with ordering and enjoying. Meats were all cooked to perfection, and sides were all delicious. If any criticism could be leveled at the food, they're a tad heavy with the salt on all dishes (especially the brussel sprouts). Service was very attentive and polite. We were seated in the convertible enclosed outdoor space on a chilly night, but the heaters were on full blast and roasting, so we asked if they could be turned down. The server obliged and asked what level we wanted them set at, and we dined comfortably for the remainder of the meal.

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.

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.
