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.

As a steakhouse, our last two visits we had to send back the bone-in ribeye. Our visit about a month and a half ago, the meat was very tough. Our last visit (9/7/18), it was clearly overcooked since we specified medium rare. For the price of this cut, this being a steakhouse, it should be perfect. The long delay in serving a new steak was annoying, as the others were almost done with their meal. With a delay like this, loss of appetite is guaranteed. Although the manager came to our table to apologize (only for the overcooked meat—not the delay), they could have at least given us dessert on the house, but they did not!

This was my first visit to Baltaire. I met a friend for lunch. I ordered the steak salad and she ordered the lobster cobb. Both were large salads and tasty. The steak salad had filet mignon, although not a large amount. The menu is fairly expensive, especially for lunch. There is no parking around the restaurant and the valet is $8 ($10 for dinner).
Lovely restaurant but expensive for a simple lunch. I might try Baltaire again for dinner.

This could be a go to, but the service was so bad I can’t imagine going back. We felt as if our waiter did not realize he is in the service business. He was a revenue liability for Baltaire.

Waiter botched up our orders. Ahi tuna appetizer was drowning in soy sauce after I politely asked for no sauce.

Branzino was not cooked well throughout as requested by a guest in my party

Steak was very highly seasoned

Waiter lacked enthusiasm or interest in serving our table. Possibly because we didn’t order any alcohol beverages.

I would revisit and give this restaurant another chance as it was highly recommended by very close friends of mine

I would not recommend this restaurant. The restaurant is so dark!!! every single table was using their cell phones to read the menu! you cannot even see the food that you are eating. The lobster bisque was good. My steaks were cold and had to be remade. The manager or anyone else never came to apologize nor did we get compensated for ANYTHING!!! We brought our own wine, and the waiter was looking at the bottle trying to see what kind of wine we had brought but due to the lack of lighting, he could not see. Then he abruptly says, we charge $45 for corkage! We had an expensive bottle of Caymus! But he was not familiar with it. He thought it was some cheap wine!!! The bus boys were in such a rush to pick up our plates, they must have asked me 3 times if I was done when my plate was still full of food! They picked up the appetizer plates while the appetizers were still all on the table, barely touched! Terrible service, I've had much better steaks and the ambiance is nothing great! This was our second and last time!

Can't speak for the rest of the menu since we mostly stuck to steaks, but you can get much better for a lot less at most of the other top steak places in LA. Ambiance was gorgeous and this would be a great place to take clients to impress them on an expensed meal.
