Need to book at 7:30 AM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Great food, ambiance and service. Looking forward to returning with friends and family to try more items from the menu!
Loved it all!
I had requested for indoor seating and after the host confirmed they’d seat us indoors, we were placed outdoor. I’ve been coming to bavel (and it’s sister restaurant) since opening, but it’s outdoor area is almost like an afterthought in decor and service. It was cold outside and difficult to get service. We were an 8:30 reservation and the vibe died outside in 30 mins because they clear out the outdoor area first.
Not a pleasant experience, but great dips.
Would come back to explore other positions on the menu.
+ Hummus 9/10
+ Cauliflower 8/10 (too oily)
+ Oyster mushroom 10/10
-/+ Didn't enjoy the lamb meat because of the very strong specific taste, but even that was... tasty.
- Had to wait longer than expected between the dishes.
The food is so good, I cried. Please get the prawns, you will not regret it!
Always superb food. Excellent service. Only issue is the noise level....pounding music makes it almost unbearable at times. Please tone down the music since there’s plenty noise and “energy” as is....
Everyone had a great meal at Bavel. We enjoyed the fusion of flavors and thus ambiance. This is my third time here and will definitely be returning again.
Excellent restaurant and even better service - the staff elevated the experience.
Food was delicious! Drinks were amazing! Definitely coming back
Outstanding! One of the best culinary experiences I ever had!
Ask for a seating in the main dining room where you'll be greeted by cascading greenery and a lively ambiance. The food is especially fresh and tasty. Our table scooped up the flavorful hummus with the pillowy soft and warm pita (we HAD to order more!) The cauliflower and shwarma (sp?) were also favorites and it'll be difficult NOT to order those items again during our next visit since we'll want to discover new favorites
Food was amazing! Their hummus and pita bread piping got when it got to the table, excellent!
Always such a amazing meal that never disappoints
The hosts and servers are so Freindly
And the food and deserts are incredible
We arrived promptly at the appointed booking time but still were kept waiting for 30 minutes as “You’re table is not ready”. Our experience elsewhere around the world is that when booking you are advised until what time you have the table. Common courtesy would imply adherence to this.
Nevertheless we found the staff most helpful and the food good
My birthday and my wife’s birthday but did not mention to server until the end.
Can't wait to go back!!! The mushrooms were outstanding, the best restaurant in DTLA
Wonderful impressively prepared and very tasty dishes. Somewhat meat-centric, the several lamb preparations (particularly the slow roasted lamb neck) and the duck were excellent. We had the babaghanoush , prawns and scallops for apps- all were well prepared and delicious. Interesting and rewarding wine selections- if expensive . Noise level made conversation a bit difficult even at our small table
The food was impeccable and we'll coursed out. The server was attentive but not excessively so. it is a beautiful and perfect special occasion restaurant with a relaxed vibe.
Great food and exceptional service. Best Prawns I've ever had.
Top in LA. Beef Tagine and Butternut Squash flatbread not to be missed.
Fantastic food and unrushed service
We were here last year and loved it and could not wait to go back! BUT, we were very disappointed this time. We liked some of the dishes but not enough to go back. We LOVE Bestia by the same Chefs and have been there many times and we are never disappointed in any dish that we order. So why would we go back to just an OK restaurant. I am just not sure if I would recommend it or not!
The food was absolutely amazing and fresh. I could tell they use only the best ingredients and everything was so divine. The service could’ve been a little better my serve didn’t seem to knowledgeable but other than that I really enjoyed myself. We started off with the baba ganoush which was the best I’ve ever had. Next, we had the shrimp prawns and the heirloom salad which was perfect in every way. Last, we had the lamb shawarma! The pita bread was made fresh and we couldn’t stop eating it. I will definitely be back again. God bless the chefs ❤️
Good for the money
Everything on the menu is amazing!
2019 year end party
Love this place! Duck hummus is a must order and the scallop crudo is creative and delicious! The sommelier helped with our wine selection and suggested a small producer from Greece that we would have easily overlooked and turned out to be FANTASTIC! Leverage the knowledgeable staff for a tasty culinary experience.
Food is interesting and stands out ... the vibe a bit too much ..
Birthday. Our server Trent was awesome. The food was incredibly good!
Food excellent. Staff was excellent, from reservations to seating to service and everything else. Everything worked well. Noise level was somewhat high for comfortable conversation among all four of our party, but certainly better than most new restaurants. Will come again.
Quite frankly, I'm not sure what the rave is about. Very overpriced for what they serve. Babaghanoush, a staple of Lebanese, Palestinian and Syrian cuisine was tasteless and its consistency was not great. The portions were small for the value and the main dish -- the lamb -- was mostly fat and bone. Wow. Back in Beirut, this restaurant would be closed the next day.
loved our meal!!!! loved our server Trent! such a fun place
Any time a restaurant at this size, which is making millions, mandates me to pay 4% of the total bill towards employee benefits is no restaurant for me. This is shameful!
Excellent restaurant, great service, creative food.
The best at everything they do!
