Definitely a favorite restaurant! We come whenever we get a chance.
Don’t sit on the patio against the wall. The noise and cockroaches come onto the walls and table. And make sure you ask the server to hold your favorite dishes or ones you want to try. At 9pm what we wanted was sold out from the entrees and dessert.
I went to Bavel with really high expectations as a friend recommended it as best restaurant in LA undortunately the highlight of the evening was the baba ganoush and the flat bread that came with it. Service was SLOW! our server was great! super knowledgeable, friendly and attentive but the food took forever to come and all of it was good but not great. I coukdnt try the one thing I wanted because they serve it for 4 people and we were only 2. We sat at 8:30 and the noise level was ok but a bit after they turned up the music like it was a club and it kind if ruined it for us.
Bavel does it right! Food is obviously incredible. No doubt a top, if not THE top spot in LA. Bavel staff - notably Blair, Liam, Jessica, and Natalie - are all at the top of the game here and I can’t wait to go back.
As in the first time we dined here (pre-COVID), the whole dining experience (except for being conversation-challenged) was outstanding - the food, the service! Would recommend it to anybody with discerning taste in a heartbeat!
Wonderful friendly staff, very knowledgeable somm, delectable food full of pleasant surprises. Will go back!
Very tasty! This was our first time here and the drinks paired really well with the food. Cocktails were most memorable. We moved to the bar area after dinner. The lamb schwarma was just a melting goodness in our mouths. Wish we had come in a larger group so that we could sample more food.
Service and food was awesome. Our server did a great job in food recommendations and the entire ambiance of the restaurant was great. I love the appetizer which are shareable and we did the oxtail tangin with the coconut rice which was perfect for 2 people.
Fantastic food as always!
The experience was great and the food was amazing! Very busy but I’m glad they have outdoor seating.
Excellent dinner, all the way around. Food, service (staff grateful!) and ambiance were outstanding. A fairly loud restaurant, so be warned. However, highly recommended
We had a very nice time celebrating, it was great to be out again:) Service overall was very attentive and the food was perfect.
See you again soon.
Balanced, nuanced cocktails and consistently amazing food. Easily one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles.
Always the best at Bavel! Great service, delicious food and amazing atmosphere! The staff made our friends first visit and 50th birthday celebration too notch! Thank you!
We love this place. One of the best in LA.
Made a reservation 45 days ahead for a special meal with family. We were given marginal seating. The hostess was indifferent. Service people were wonderful. Great food but a struggle to hear across the table.
Amazing, will be back for sure! Didnt love the lamb flatbread as much as everything else
Always the best time. Great wine. Amazing food. Best service.
Amazing - both food and service was impeccable!
One of the best meals I've had this year. Great breads. Great service. Fun atmosphere
Bavel was amazing. I had a friend in town and we went to 5 restaurants and this was the best overall dining experience! The food and service was top notch. Dining on the patio was lovely. We were taking many pictures of each course because of the exceptional presentation. Highly recommend.
Appetizers are very good, main course not that great, the wine is expensive, they will rather sell you wine that a cocktail
Amazing food, tremendous service, wonderful ambiance.
Still one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. Always inspiring.
So good. So so good. And beautiful & wonder staff.
Absolutely LOVED everything we ordered. The Hummus Masbacha was delicious, the pita was so soft and perfect. The Grilled Prawns were incredible, the turmeric potato flatbread was out of this world, the Grilled Dorade was perfection! The cocktails were gorgeous yet delicious. Everything on the menu was cooked to perfection, I honestly cannot wait to go back. Our server Liam was so great, he was so friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, he truly made our dining experience a great and memorable one.
Genuinely one of my favorite restaurants in L.A., a great place to celebrate with friends and family if you're looking for something a bit more buttoned-up without being stodgy. It's a must-visit resto whenever my family is in town as we'd all like to live inside their pita bread and stuff our faces with the oyster mushrooms.
My fiancé and I went to celebrate both his birthday and our engagement after missing our anniversary reservation from last year due to COVID.
Food and staff are always amazing. Still thinking about the tomato strawberry dish!
Everything was great. Would like some less $$ wine-by-the-glass options
One of the best dining experiences in LA
Loved the aesthetic. Blair was fantastic! Our food was delicious.
Hostess is so rude will not ever go back. She should pick a new career. You know who you are…..
The overall experience was amazing. Will definitely be back!
Food was spectacular. Our server gave excellent recommendations and got the amount of food just right for our group. A+
Another spectacular meal!!
Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish. All of the dishes are beautiful, delicious and memorable. Can't wait to go back. Interesting playlist of music while we were there.
Food was incredible, great for sharing and vegetarian friendly. Service was great as well, our server was super attentive and helpful!
One of the single greatest dining experiences I’ve ever had. Period.
Great service & awesome food!
Great service- changes our utensils and cleaned the table throughout dinner, refilled water and asked us about drinks once we finished drinking. The food came out in a timely manner but one after the other around the same
Order of the items on the menu.
Food was amazing we had 4 people eating and ordered 7 appetizer and small plates and 2 large items and we were stuffed.
