the food was fantastic as always. it's one of my favorite place for dinner.
The food here is great. Awareness of social distancing measures not so much. In fact I believewe ate there the last night that it was possible. I loved the soft cheese appetizer with roe, but $22 for super fancy yogurt-like stuff seems dubious. Radichio and endive is a very nice salad. The lamb chops we're tasty and tender. We got two desserts, the donuts and the bonbon. I loved them both, but my husband did not. The donuts had a rose flavored cream with them. I must remember to not get the Marius because the apricot is almost unnoticeable.
I truly hope that Bavel reopens soon. Their flavors are so vivid and unique.
Fantastic meal. Flavors and quality are on point. Service was excellent. I'd go back just for dessert!
Bavel is fine. Nothing to write home about imo. Ambience reminded me of a sports bar rather than a pricey restaurant. Our server had too many tables to look after so the service wasn’t great because of that. It’s yet another expensive LA restaurant which is ok.
Incredible Food, knowledgeable staff guided us through our menu options as my girlfriend is vegan. 10/10 would recommend.
Amazing food, friendly knowledgeable staff. I will be coming again.
Always great food and service. So creative and tasty.
Came for my boyfriend’s bday, did not disappoint per usual. We got the 40oz tomahawk ribeye special, which was absolutely phenomenal. We will be back.
Went with some family that was in town and it was truly fantastic. The quality of the food, the flavors, all cooked to perfection. We all were impressed and it felt more like an event considering how much we all enjoyed it. The service and the ambiance was stellar as well. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to wow their company with.
Food was really good, but the noise level was unbearable. You literally have to scream to be heard. I had to lip read what my friends were saying. I left with a headache from the level of noise.
This was our second time visiting Bavel. We will not be returning due to the fact that they have adopted a 4% surcharge for coverage of health insurance for their employees. We feel that this a VERY SHAMEFUL act of all restaurants that put this onto their patrons instead of digging into their own pockets to cover this expense. If a company values their employees for their hard work they will cover this expense on their own. As a small business owner, I would never think of putting the cost of health insurance onto my customers. If you value your employees this should be a cost the company covers - NOT PATRONS!
Absolutely fantastic experience! Food is A M A Z I N G. Highly recommend.
In a word, pleasant
The service was outstanding. The food was impeccable, and I look forward to going back.
Bavel was incredible! The service was outstanding. Our waiter took the time to get to know us, even taking extra precaution with my fish allergy. The food was delicious and well portioned. It is rather loud but it brings an energetic feel.
the food was OK and overpriced and the room was so loud that we could not hear the people we came with. We asked that the heat lamp be lowered and they said they would and never did. the noise was worse in the main dinning room. i would pass next time
Amazing food and amazing service! I can’t wait to come back.
Beautiful space. I loved their take on traditional Mediterranean dishes. Some portions are small, so be sure to ask your server how many you should order to fit your group.
Food is outstanding! Pricey but worth it. They say it's family style and meant for sharing, but if you have men in your group, they could easily handle main courses themselves without sharing. So order appropriately.
To say it was fantastic is an understatement. One of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Worth the hype
The food was fantastic. The service was great. The interior is designed beautifully. We didn’t realize we were paying $175 just for the steak, but it fed four of us and every bite was full of flavor, tender, and simply delightful. I highly recommend this restaurant & cant wait to go back!
Awful. Theo is the rudest manager we’ve ever met. Never going back. My boyfriend and I also felt sick to our stomach after our meal and had to stop and get anti nausea medicine on the ya home.
Great food and friendly service. Definitely recommend
Amazing food and exceptional service. Bavel became the top of my list now.
Amazing food! Service! Wine suggestions were a nice touch with option to do a tasting. Ambiance is beautiful. Looking forward to coming back. The oyster mushrooms were out of this world, date and endive salad was superb, fish was lovely, and the donuts for dessert were unbelievable!
Wonderful food and wine. Tom, somiliea, and Savanna host are the best! Scallop crude is the bomb.
a great addition to LA food scene. I loved the renditions of various middle eastern food that were all very delicious. Also the ambience is great. Wine price is high and you may consider taking your own wine for a corkage fee of $35. Like most other LA restaurants it is noisy.
People were great. We also brought our own cake.
The food was scrumptious!
I reluctantly wrote no because the first time I was there service was on point. This time around from our waiter to the person who delivered our food was lacking enthusiasm. The person dropping our food would script the food so fast with no passion or allow us to ask any questions.
Our waiter made us feel rush to order. I believe we were looking at the menu leas than 5 minutes when he asked if we were ready to order. Didn’t offer to suggest anything. Again very little passion when describing the food.
The quality and flavors of the food are amazing - can’t wait to return!
Just go. The food is amazing.
Two of our party of four were vegan and everyone was extremely accommodating with our restrictions. Thank you!
The food was quality with wonderful taste combos. I think the price is definitely too high though.
Incredible. Every time. Incredible.
Awesomely delicious and open late night are the highlights. The wine list is esoteric and disappointing considering the cuisine I just don’t get it? Had a wine for $75. which I could not drink.
Next level food, great pairing of flavors and unique menu options. Wish seating was more comfortable in the outer patio area. Perhaps chairs with some padding. Otherwise no complaints. Will be back again.
