We had a family dinner for my son's 13th birthday and the restaurant did not disappoint. Not only was the food excellent, the presentation of the various menu items was pure entertainment. The restaurant overall was very social as everyone enjoyed looking at each other's dishes and helping to take photos. Such a memorable experience!

Overpriced for the quality of food. One of our guests felt sick shortly after getting on the Uber from the Mac n Cheese or sliders she ate. Filet mignon was decent, nothing better than a chain restaurant. The presentations were nice for each dish and the drinks were superb.

Bathrooms were nicely decorated, although it wouldn't hurt to clean it out or detail it further since the dining experience is over-the-top. The desserts were great, they are the most creative I've had.

Maybe we arrived too late in the evening and the kitchen staff was running on fumes? I was expecting better quality for the price and hype.

We celebrated my daughter’s 11th birthday. Great ambiance and great service. Food is just ok, but the presentation is super fun, especially for kids.

Specifically called to ask if a vegetarian entree would be available in place of the Thanksgiving turkey, while still taking part in the Thanksgiving meal. The host checked and assured me that it would be fine. Our server claimed otherwise and wouldn't allow us to make a substitution.

Great experience! It was pre-noted at reservation that this was an anniversary date but no one greeted us. Otherwise everything was great and the dessert did come with an anniversary sparkler so they did know. Not much interaction with staff so was left a little cold with the service, but still prompt and polite so no worries.

The over-all concept is ok but it seems like the waiter was trained to be aggressive at the beginning. We were there to have dinner with my wife and my two kids to celebrity my older daughter's birthday. The waiter right at the beginning said "the way it works here is that you have to order appetizer and each person has to order a dinner". I find that to be really rude for them to dictate what we should do. I did not pay attention to his comments and we did what we normally do when we order at any restaurant. if it was not my daughter birthday, I would have left the place without ordering anything. in fact a couple next to us left the place after he told them the same thing.

Happy that the food was as delicious as the presentations were creative. It's not a place to have deep conversations due to the loud music but a great place for drinks and small chat with buddies. The service is top notch and fast. The lamb was a bit fatty(It's usually trimmed more) but it was still delicious.

It was a great dining experience where instead of going to a carnival, the carnival is brought to you. The service and staff was excellent! It was so much fun.

Love the place. I’d been here couple of times. I invited my friends to join be for a Friday night out. They were pretty impressed and had a great time. Food is excellent. Service
Is impeccable. The only thing that we were disappointed about was we were seated in looks like a private area and not the main dining area, not sure why. We have to request to be move where the happening was. Our table was constantly being cleared, the food presentation takes up a lot of space....it’s the fun part. Our server checked on us couple of times, not too often as we hope she should. The overall experience was a delight! Definitely a repeat!

Aside from the fantastic and over the top presentation the food is 5 star quality, some of the best filet mignon I’ve ever had. Great, friendly and very efficient service.

Excellent place, perfect for instagram photos and experiences. Quiet a loud environment, tables are extremely close to each other, if you are looking for a nice quiet dinner this is not your place, if you are look for fun filled with wows this is your destination. Reservations are a must and parking limited. Uber is always best and most convenient in LA.

Food was delicious, service was amazing.

Only issue tables are way to close to each other. I appreciate the more tables the more people the restaurant can serve but this made evening slightly uncomfortable. Except for that we had a wonderful time and loved how each meal was served.

The tables were so close together I was dodging and weaving the waiting staff all night also I couldn’t read the menu the table for four or three is really for two especially with the extreme presentations. And I asked why they didn’t spread the tables further for us cause in the main dining there was plenty of space.

Excellent presentations and the food is absolutely delicious. The lobster pop tarts and the red velvet cheesecake were outstanding. We had leftovers and the dessert is enough for 8! Pricey.

The food, atmosphere, and service were excellent. However, our table at the restaurant for our reservation was subpar. We were sat at a very small table at the front of the restaurant by the bar. The table was so small that it was not even able to hold the plates of food we ordered. I also noticed that there were much nicer, more cozy/intimate and bigger tables throughout the restaurant that were empty and available. Which made where wee were seated even more confusing and disappointing as I had made the reservation a couple of days in advance and not at the last minute. But I also find that this is a recurring problem at most of the restaurants that I make a reservation with through Open Table. It feels like most restaurant give secondary and subpar seating to me every time I use Open Table even when there is better seating available at the time of my reservation. I am not sure if this is a problem with the Restaurant or with Open Table but is very frustrating.
