Loved it! Best Italian food I’ve had in LA! Music / Vibe was perfect for a date.
Delish ricotta and handmade pasta. AND THE COCKTAILS!!!
amazing food! amazing service! had a great experience
One of the best price v value restaurants in the city. Stellar .
real love the food and wien list as well as the deserts
The music was a little loud this particular night and it was difficult to hear each other. Other than that, the food was pretty good. Miss Chef Ori.
Food was great. Received our first 3 dishes right after the other but waited about 20 min after the last dish for our pasta. Server didn't mention or say anything after waiting for so long. Wish the server was more attentive and at least acknowledged that the food was coming out.
Waiter and manager were snooty and refused to serve steak at temperature we asked. Spent well over $500 and couldn’t pay for an extra scoop of ice cream. It was my birthday and absolutely not a gift.
Option to select a quieter table upon reservation would be great!
Experience was perfect!
Excellent service, Food amazing - and the Drinks very well made.
We loved every single dish we ordered.
If you like it quite - ask for the patio outside - the have heaters and even blankets.
We were very comfortable and could talk. For more energetic mood - eat inside.
Love this place! So Yummy. It’s like no other place I have been. Dishes like the bone marrow pasta are so unique and delicious. And I don’t usually eat bone marrow! But I will eat it here! The ambiance is industrial modern. Very Trendy.
The food is amazing. I don’t think I have come across one dish I that hate, and here, I am willing to try things out of my comfort zone.
Our 6th eating at Bestia it was phenomenal as usual
Literally ordered everything recommended online. All was generally good but found our main courses so/so.
Staff is great. Super friendly and quick to assist.
Place is a bit loud but I dig it. Feels very lively.
Spent 400 dollars between 2 people for dinner and drinks. Not sure if it was worth it.
Everything as usual was excellent. The food was on point! The truffle pasta was incredible. The atmosphere food ambience always mouthwatering. Chef Ori food and his wife’s desserts euphoric. Hands-down one of the best restaurants in LA.
One of the best service we’ve ever received on a very busy restaurant. I forgot the name of our server but he is definitely the best! Food is also great, we loved everything we had ordered. Will be back on other special occasions for sure.
It was good . Not amazing . Waiter was very robotic and slightly rude . Food was good , not something I’d rave about . Drinks were the best part of the experience & the ambience . Also in a really fun location downtown la arts district
Great service. Food is awesome. Excellent wine list
Food, beverage, and service were all spot on. Attentive and knowledgeable, while also unobtrusive. The vibe and ambiance are great. Casual and fun, without sacrificing quality. Great wine selections, and the pastas are diving. Great flavors and perfect texture with attention to detail. Would definitely go back next tome I visit LA.
Food was excellent. Our server and bartender were very nice. Will definitely come back again soon.
The manager Julia was delightful and the rest of the staff provided excellent service. A well run place with outstanding food and a great vibe!
We have been coming to Bestia for years and every visit we were amazed by their creative menu. Their thin crust pizza and pasta dishes are consistently great! Actually, all of the items on their menu are delicious. We look forward to dining at Bestia for many more years to come!
We were celebrating my son’s 25th birthday. He had been wanting to try Bestia and it did not disappoint. The restaurant has a wonderful, upbeat vibe. Wonderful smells in the air and the service was excellent. The food was interesting and delicious with a nice variety to choose from. Overall, we had a delightful experience.
Excellent food. Uniuque menu. Spectacular Service. one of our favorite LA Restaurants. Can't wait to go back again.
Bestia did not live up to the reviews nor the hype of its months-in-advance reservation, which is in itself a disappointment. I saved a visit here for my boyfriend's birthday and I was perplexed when we were seated at the kitchen counter even though we had a reservation for 5pm (when the restaurant opens) and there were many free tables nearby. When I asked if we could sit at one of the tables, we were politely told no but they'd let us know if something opened up -- I had to ask again when said tables were still empty 20 minutes later. Our waitress initially encouraged us to order four dishes because the menu encourages sharing, but the portions are fairly substantial. We did just fine with two pasta dishes and one pizza between us. The food was excellent, but there are many Italian restaurants of equal or better quality in LA, which are more affordable, more welcoming, and don't require a reservation months in advance. Glad we tried it, but I won't be back.
Bestia is consistently a fantastic dining experience!
Order everything! everything was so good. Especially the truffle pasta...
Pastas were fabulous but desserts ran out early and we missed out on the bone marrow.
The food was great and the customer service was on point.
food was pretty good, not incredible, but good; about what you'd expect for a "foodie" restaurant. My biggest issue with the place was the food was very slow to come out and they pack way too many tables in there so I was basically getting bumped by waiters/people walking by every 5 seconds (and the chairs were very uncomfortable as well). Food is slightly overpriced but again, what you'd expect for a "foodie" place. Overall I give it a 3 for meeting food expectations but not blowing my mind, the positioning of the tables left a lot to be desired though. Likely won't be back
Always a great evening!
Service was amazing, but space in the restaurant is very limited. Overall, would come again, albeit this may not be at the top of my list.
Servers kept bumping into my husband so we did not have a good seat placement. They could only move us on the patio where it was cold. Burrata pizza was delicious. Had a hand rolled mushroom ravioli and it was very good, but such a small portion that we should have been warned when we ordered. Overall the food is good, but not good value and very noisy.
Overall super delicioua!! I put 4/5 stars in service because our waiter forgot one of our items and then he charged one of our friends twice, not sure of he was new? But aside from that the food is amazing!!
Everything we ordered were delicious. Service was great! We will definitely make another trip here at Bestia!
Never can’t go wrong dining at Bestia
Phenomenal as always. Best restaurant in LA. Service was amassing.
Bestia was the best. The valet was right at the door. Our table was ready and we were seated promptly. Our server , Leslie S, was fantastic- friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. We ordered the lobster ceviche as the appetizer, perfectly prepared with. An amazing mixture of subtle seasonings. The broth was astounding, citrusy and delicous. This is one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. That was followed by a refreshing tart endive salad with pomegranate seeds and the entree was the incomparable New Zealond beef, medium rare, cooked with a perfectly seasoned crust. Outstanding! Finished off With the chocolate dessert it was as perfect a meal and as an outstanding dining experience as I could have anticipated in the fascinating open warehouse style open kitchen and close dining room.
