    Brilliant restaurant- one of our favourites (and not just in LA). This restaurant would hold its own as one of the best in any global city. Food is insane. Ambiance is awesome. Service was great.

    Everything was wonderful. My only complaint is they should offer extra bread/pita with dips for parties of 3.

    Too much MSG for me. I didn't have alcohol and I woke up twice at night with super thirst.

    Food and service were divine. Design is gorgeous. Vibe felt Sunday brunch (we were there for dinner); not as cool / diverse as Bestia, but the staff and food made up for that.

    After our not so great experience the last time we were here, I left a bad review for the restaurant. We never had a bad experience when coming to Bavel but the last time left a bad taste in the mouth. It made me think twice of wanting to come back and I had already made a future reservation for my husband’s bday celebration. However, after the review, Brooke from Bavel reached out to me and apologized and asked for more details about what happened that night. She assured me that it wasn’t the standard Bavel was striving for and said they would take care of us when we went back for my husband’s birthday. As usual the food was amazing and we not only had an excellent server, but two other head hosts that made sure our experience this time around was amazing. They also sent out complimentary dishes and drinks we never normally order in our rotation. Definitely will start adding those dishes in our rotation in the future. Thank you Brooke and the staff at Bavel for taking care of us.

    The food and ambiance is terrific. The cost for a bottle of wine is marked up too high. I would definitely recommend the food.

    The overall experience was very pleasant. The hanging golden pothos plants were setting the moods for calm and refreshing ambiences. The waitresses was very helpful choosing dishes. Baba ghanoush spread is the best bread pudding that i have ever eaten so for. I also had the ribeye steak which was juicy and tender. Thank you Bavel for serving mouthwatering foods!
