Was wonderful and amazing hands down best experience ever
Food was delicious! Beef tartar was fantastic. My favorite dish was the Cavatelli ala Norcina. Will definitely be back.
They no longer offer the salumi plate, which was a key part of the menu. It's disappointing to go to a restaurant as lauded as Bestia and find one of their staple offerings no longer there.
Food is as expected for a highly rated restaurant, but the service…. man it was impeccable.
Will definitely try to get a reservation again.
GREAT FIRST EXPERIENCE. VERY GOOD FOOD AND SERVICE
Food was spectacular. We were 2 chefs so we ordered a lot of food. The pastas were superb with amazing flavors and the lamb pizza was perfect. We also had the ribeye which was perfectly cooked. The service was exceptional with attention to detail. I will definitely return as soon as possible.
I was so excited to try this restaurant. Their food was okay. Nothing special. Our server kept pushing us to order more food and drinks to the point where we felt uncomfortable. The amount of food we ordered was perfect for us. Their outdoor seating was ugly. Overall, I was disappointed and will not go back
My 2nd time here - from out of town and will make this place a destination every time I visit LA.
I love it so much
absolutely amazing, food is outstanding. Our go to restaurant every time and never disappoints.
Really awesome meal. Every dish was fantastic and the staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Loved the experience. Hope to visit again when I come back to Los Angeles.
An amazing meal! We would go back any day without hesitation 😊
When and if you can get in, do it. Service and food are amazing. The outdoor dining is decent considering these times - very enjoyable evening!
Went for my birthday! The staff was so friendly I felt like we were old friends by the time I left, the food is fantastic, the best liver pate and raviolis I’ve ever had!!
Went with a group of 6 for a birthday. Food and drinks were great. We were seated outside and had a great time. Definitely get the lamb neck.
It was great time and Food is really good !! wanna visit here again.
The entire staff at Bestia is attentive, courteous, and friendly. The restaurant itself is run like a well-oiled machine and dishes are timed to arrive at your table perfectly. Gwen was so delightful as our server to share her extensive knowledge about the menu and help us make the best decisions for our dinner. And the food itself…simply amazing. For an all-around superb experience make a reservation today!
Server Keana was AMAZING! Wonderful recommendations and very attentive & friendly!
Everything we order was delicious. Definitely go back and definitely recommend.
My favorite spot in Los Angeles. Amazing food and service. LOVE coming here.
Everything was delicious. The Bone Marrow is a must!
La mejor comida durante mi estadía en LA, hubo 15 minutos de demora para que nos acomodaran en nuestra mesa, el lugar estaba muy concurrido, igual tomamos eso como una buena señal, el somelier podría ser algo más carismático, lo compensó nuestra mesera que fue muy amable y simpática.
One of the very best restaurants in LA! I love to go back again and again.
Perhaps the worst waiter service I've ever had. Pushy, rude, disinterested, condescending. Which is too bad, because the host, food runners and valet were all great. It was also my daughter's 15th birthday, which the waiter did not care one bit about. Nothing special from the kitchen and not even a kind word.
The food was fine, but for the price it could have been so much better. We spent over $700 for a party of 6. And no substitutions for food allergies...I get it. Their restaurant, their rules. But you definitely won't see me back here ever, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. LA's a big place. Too many other great options.
Service was horrible. We were sat in the cold and they refused to move heater closer due to proximity to other patrons but no one was even sitting by us as they complained and were moved to warmth and we were refused. Also, food was to be coursed instead everything came all at once to our tiny table.
The food was absolutely fantastic and the service was equally impressive. What a great experience!!!
The staff was welcoming. The food was amazing and the experience was worth it. We will definitely be coming back.
The place was literally just Ok. The food was ok, drinks were pretty good. It was kinda dark. Service was nice. Prolly will never come back.
It’s always OUTSTANDING AT BESTIA!!! Still hands down one of the top LA restaurants.
Went for bday! Best server ever, so informative and straightforward! Can’t wait to go back.
Fantastic meal! Every dish was creative and delicious! Cocktails were perfect. Service was great. Next time we’re coming back with more people so we can try more dishes. Had the scallops, pasta, bone marrow, and lamb shoulder. All spectacular! We sat in the garden/patio - very nice and more quiet than inside. Love this restaurant!
From the service to the food. Everything was absolutely amazing!!
One of the few places that actually live up to the hype. Worth the price, food was incredible.
I have eaten at Bestia on several occasions for the last 4 years but today some of my favorite dishes did not taste anything like the multiple previous visits. Sadly, I am disappointed that the joy their food used to bring was not the case today .
Great ambiance, and every item on the menu exceeded our expectations. Also, don't hesitate to try their take on an espresso martini (I'd say it's better than 90% of the places I've had a good classic one).
Great food great service very attentive and fast ! Will be a forsure be coming back soon
It was great to dine again at Bestia! Outdoor seating with safety protocols in place!
Great food, great service. Would definitely recommend
The servers are one of the best and the food is incredible.
