Vegetables are the star of the show at Botanica, an innovative new restaurant from editors-turned-chefs Emily Fiffer and Heather Sperling. The market-driven menu features beautiful produce from local farms, wild Pacific seafood, responsibly sourced meat, and spices from across the globe. Dishes are exciting but unfussy, composed with healthfulness in mind. Abundant Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Central and Southeast Asian influences inform the food, but Botanica is a wholly modern American restaurant.

Rounding out the menu is a beverage program of natural wines, craft beer, produce-centric cocktails, fresh juices and spritzers, and Manufactory coffee and Leaves & Flowers teas. In addition to the restaurant, the space houses a market, stocked with the products and local produce used in the kitchen, the wine and beer from the restaurant list, prepared foods and house-made snacks.

Botanica knocks it out of the park. Every. Single. Time.
Food, service, drinks, wine, ambiance, it factor. Obsessed.

Excellent food, starters are generous. We had a flight of wines which were pricey and not spectacular. All said the atmosphere is great (especially on the patio) and the food healthy and delicious.

Horrible. Service was bad. Slow. All food too spicy. We left after the appetizers. Not coming back.

Food was outstanding. However, we had a reservation for brunch and waited for 40minutes past the reservation for the table. Not sure if they were overbooked or what, but that's a crazy wait. They got the food out fast once we were seated, but I expected a round of drinks, some free coffee, something besides an apology to make up for the terrible wait time.

One of my favorite restaurants in LA. This is such a good place for a date with a friend. It's casual but cozy, beautifully lit in the evening, and the food is amazing.

We were very pleased with our visit. The food was very tasty, although a bit heavy at times (e.g., tartine had a bit too much hummus). However, it was all very elaborate and original, which was nice. The drinks were good and original too. The service was excellent, everyone was friendly, and we were offered two glasses of sparkling wine for our anniversary. I would definitely recommend this place.

We love Botanica, and the food is reliably excellent. This was our first time dining inside, and the experience would benefit from fewer tables. The tables are so close, you feel you’re dining with those at the next table!
