Best meal in the entire world
Delicious food and drinks. Bone marrow and scallops were stand outs. Servers were very nice but not always on the same page with each other. It was CRAZY crowded (even for a Monday night) - no signs of lingering COVID protocols here - and very backed up. Took us over 3 hours to be served our food. Loud and hip, but very expensive. Valet tried to rip us off when we left. If you go, try to get on the patio. It's a bit chiller but still got a good vibe.
Amazing experience. We weren’t seated at the time of our reservation but 10 minutes later which was totally fine! Great food and amazing service.
A wonderful evening at a wonderful place. The energy at Bestia is bustling, and the food terrific. Plus we had a great server. What more con you ask for.
Absolutely delicious, as always
Everything was delicious, wine selection and recommendations were amazing !! Service was on point. Overall great experience
The staff was very accommodating. Every dish that was brought out blew us away. Fresh ingredients and complex tastes and textures.
Best food. Best ambiance. Best service
excellent food! incredible service
Excellent all around but this time it was the service that stood out. It’s an incredibly busy restaurant but the servers do such a great job making everyone feel welcome and well taken care of.
Best food. Best vibe. Insanely excellent experience. Lovely server disappeared for a bit but we forgave her because it was packed and she was otherwise knowledgeable, warm, and tended to our experience of celebrating our anniversary with good energy!
This place is stupid and makes me angry. Stupidly delicious. And I’m angry I’ve gone so long without eating their dishes until now. Get all the antipasti; you won’t regret any of them.
The food is SUPERB!!!
Service is professional and friendly.
Noise... that is another story, overall, Bestia for me is one of the best restaurant in town.
This is just a place where you won't be disappointed. The ambience is great. It's very lively. Every single dish surprised us. We can't wait to go back there again!
Would've been nice to know that extra bread would be another charge. Other than that, great food as always!
First time and won't be my last. Fun friendly staff and amazing food
Amazing restaurant that never disappoints!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thank you. I hope to revisit as long as I can get the reservation.
Bestia is always full of energy, lots of happy faces and friendly service. The food has been amazing every time I came here. Sometimes I wish they didn't change their menu from time to time because I crave certain dishes, but in a way it's good to try something new. Definitely appreciate the dishes that they do keep around all the time, such as the bone marrow (my favorite).
Best Italian food I have had in LA.
Good way to initiate a maskless outing. It was our first time at Bestia after never being able to get a reservation. We booked for a 5pm dinner and from the minute we walked in until we left the service was absolutely phenomenal. The ambiance was electric, every staff member interacted like family. The food & drinks were divine. The scallops appetizer was definitely a great start and ended with the ribeye… can’t wait to come back! Thank you Bestia for your amazing food and excellent service.
Busy energetic environment with excellent customer service. The drinks are delicious, I had the "I can see your Halo". The only thing I did not like is that some of the food had too much olive oil. We ordered the chicken gizzards and the sage & mortadella pizza, both had too much olive oil that kind of killed the flavor. Bestia was on my top places to go but I don't think I would go back, sorry.
I know this is a popular restaurant, but it is extremely loud and crowded.
Very little space to move around. The kitchen staff is yelling and screaming. And smoke fills the room from the pizza oven. All in all I was very relieved to leave.
Food was good, but it was a very unpleasant experience being there.
The service was outstanding and each dish surpassed expectations.
Food was amazing, Drinks were aromatic and flavorful, service could have been a bit more persistent, but overall it was an awesome experience. Would recommend to a friend!
Fantastic food as always!
Delicious fare, creative cocktails, and friendly service. Try the bone marrow antipasto!
Had a good time .Food was food.Some dishes were excellent like the Cavatelli. Good hip vibe
Great service from Shalimar who was "on it" from the moment we sat down.
its okay, nothing bad, nothing amazing. short, sweet, simple
Amazing food and wait staff incredibly attentive and extraordinary on every level
This place was recommended by a friend who is originally from the east coast and now a permanent west coast resident. I told her I’d be in LA for my birthday and this was the spot she recommended and boy did it not disappoint nor kid a single mark. Starting with the first bite of the first dish we ordered, I knew this meal was going to be epic. Every bite was well balanced, expertly executed and left nothing behind. 10 out of 10 would do again.
Friends Wedding Anniversary
We loved our second time at Bestia. This time we had items that we hadn't tried before, mainly the lamb neck and the duck legs. I felt both were overpriced for the amount of "meat" and get and frankly for some reason an actual lamb neck with the spinal cord intact was unappetizing. The duck was in a soup of polenta which would have been tastier with just a solid firm polenta. I am not a milky/creamy girl so that was also a bummer for me.
I did love the Budino which was amazing. That was the second time we ordered that one!
Great food but eating in their parking lot wasn't so great. I get that it's due to the pandemics, but I am paying for Bestia experience as well.
Love this place. One of my all time favorites in Los Angeles
Our favorite restaurant! eating outside on the driveway in a tent was fine...it's a pandemic ...we get it...but it was not the same as being inside. We'll be back soon!
Really great food! Good ambiance - although it was a little bit noisy inside.
Great restaurant and amazing staff! Best to reserve a table in advance.
