Always love Bestia but first time back since Covid and they are really doing an outstanding job following safety measures. Can't wait to go back.
Great food!!!... So good to see it keep their doors open... and very cool outdoor dining!
Always a great time with great food. Not the full menu but the current one is spectacular none the less.
I really can not accept to have a meal within 90 mins. If your restaurant is kind of fine dining restaurant, it’s hard to understand how come serve for a table only in 90 mins. It’s not fast food restaurant, right?! My family had bad time at your restaurant. Won’t come again.
It was amazing and nothing short of perfect. We are there every 2 weeks and can't get enough!
Our server was amazing and made sure we had a great experience for my birthday. She was great with recommendations and dietary restrictions and super friendly
Great place for date nights! Awesome food and good service!
Bestia is a classic for a reason. You don't want to miss out on the bone marrow appetizer (never seen anything like this!) or any of their pastas. We also adored the butterbean puree and whole branzino.
One of the best food placez ever! Excellent tomato salad.
Let’s start with their very uncomfortable seats! I still have back pain... the food tasted good but nothing special and overpriced for small portions. Service was good. No ambiance. I will not go back nor recommend this restaurant.
Wonderful first time experience at Bestia! Food, vibe, everything was wonderful!
We did make reservations in advance so got to sit on the permanent patio which was quiet and enjoyable! If we would have sit on the “makeshift” patio, it would have been a different experience, much louder and not as aesthetically pleasing, but I understand you are doing what you can to stay open during such a difficult time. But I’m just glad for my first time, I was able to enjoy what Bestia has to offer in all the ways.
great food great vibe! number one Italian restaurant in LA.
I feel the service at Bestia is not as good as it was before the Pandamic
Excellent Service. Had to wait a little, they gave us some complimentary items : D
Amazing! Our favorite place to eat in downtown, possibly in all of LA.
The receptionist was not accommodating almost rude to us.. I did not leave because I was there primarily for the workers . Thanks for asking.
My favorite restaurant since my first visit in 2015!
One of our favourite restaurants we’ve tried so far in LA. Every dish was pretty good!
Very very disappointed. Small portions and heavily overpriced. Discouraged for a place that has a lot of hype and notariety.
Had better food and bigger portions at at equal or lesser price.
We’ve been continuously dining at bestia since it opened - food was always 💯 even though some of the servers were pretentious. Even though dining al fresco during these times isn’t ideal, our food was still amazing and it was our first time having a warm and friendly server. I couldn’t see her smile because of her mask but she was all smelled and super welcoming. Loved it and can’t wait to go back.
My husband and I had a great time at Bestia. Everything - drinks, food and service - was exceptional. Must try their tomato salad, whole Branzino spaghetti Rustichella and ten cent pistol (cocktail) 😋
I have been to A Lot of restaurants in my lifetime and this was one of the best experience I had. A party if four spent almost $1000 on food a drinks so that just about sums it up how great this place is. Food and drinks worth every single penny but most of the the best part is that all the servers and staff is the nicest and the most professional ever! Thank you so much!
The food and the service were both immaculate. Our server explained the current protocols very clearly. He answered our questions regarding the food and wine menu with enthusiasm and knowledge. All the food was delicious and the dessert was next level. Eat the blueberry torte.
The server was not at all interested in serving us. The meat was undercooked.
Absolutely take your family, your friends, yourself....the ricotta dumplings might be the best tasting dish in LA. The starters are a must-get. The dishes are simple yet the flavors are so complex you'll be thinking "what even is this?! how does it taste this way?!" Outdoor seating was comfortable and safe as far as COVID-19 concerns.
Food, service and ambiance were all outstanding. Will definitely return.
Amazing food. Service was great. Would go again! Enjoyed the mussels.
Phenomenal pizzas with outstanding toppings and crust, and the gnocchi was spot on - cooked to perfection. The budino was phenomenal, and dare I say one of the best desserts ever. Their COVID precautions were above and beyond any I have seen in LA. Loved it and can't wait to return post-pandemic.
Perfect food perfect service
Everything tasted so fresh. It was delicious and full of flavor.
Took my wife there for her birthday. Service and food was great.
While sitting in the Parking lot at a hightop table is not the best ambience for dinner, the evening was made very special by the quality of the food, our attentive leader, and the excellence of the sommelier
It was my friend’s birthday dinner!!! We had amazing dishes as well as great cocktails and fabulous service!!!
Everything was clean and outdoor dinner felt safe!
Can’t wait to go back for more.
I went my daughter’s BD dinner.
Saver was very friendly & Food was delicious!
They charged 4% sanitizers fee ?! Was question? Bt,
We can come back again!
Everything was great. The staff are so kind and we loved the food !
Awesome in every way!
Always amazing dishes here, love the place! Will continue to recommend this spot to anyone.
The food came quickly and we loved everything we ate. The chocolate tart dessert was to die for along with the pizza and pastas. The tomato eggplant salad was really good too
We are so glad that Bestia has reopened for dine in! Although their outside seating is in their parking lot, they’ve done a decent job in making it feel welcoming. COVID-19 precautions are in place and all diners and wait staff were mindful. Food, as always, was superb and service was excellent!
Quiet Weds late night dinner. Food was amazing. Would like to visit a little earlier. The vibe feels a little tainted when the staff starts to close down around you.
