Good food. Not amazing though. Service was excellent. Attentive. Parking is a little difficult. Lovely location. Good for a business lunch.
Made a reservation based off 1.8k reviews of over 4 stars. Unfortunately the meal was just average. Had the ravioli and mushrooms. The mushrooms were good the the ravioli was rubbery. Sat outside, beautiful setting but the food and service didn’t meet the same standards
Mark was a great waiter. happy hour wine is only $6.
Meals and salad were great--veal shank and hangar steak. Bread is awesome.
Dessert (lemon cake) not worth the $ and calories
Tonight was Valentines night and it was obviously a packed house, but the staff worked hard and tried to get everyone seated with food on their table as fast as possible. I applaud not only the food and service but also their composure on a stressful night like Valentine’s night.
Valentine’s Day was terrible. Front of the house was clueless. We were seated more than an hour after our reservation. Their system was to hand write names on a series of menus in the order of guest arrival. Not sure why I made a reservation then. A few times they couldn’t read their own handwriting and they forgot to put my name on the list. They remembered checking me in so they guessed and inserted me into a random place on the list.
To make matters worse, while we were waiting, one of the waiters came wobbling to the front of the restaurant where we were all waiting (I head other patrons say they thought he was drunk or high) and asked a few Asian couples if they had been the ones who he served. None of us had even eaten yet. He had a check in hand and was angry. We think he was looking for an Asian couple who didn’t tip well or something. Maybe I’m wrong in what he was looking for, but asking all the Asian couples is wildly inappropriate.
They forgot to bring our third courses. Ended up waiting an inordinate amount of time for our correct course. The entree was terribly cold.
The only positive of the night was our waiter. He was a tall blonde man with glasses. Awesome character, great attitude.
It was honestly the worst place I have ever spent Valentine’s Day, I know for a fact to never go there again
The restaurant is beautiful, the service is impeccable and the food is inventive and delicious. I don’t see how it could be more perfect.
The manager, Jorge, made us feel very welcome as he greeted us upon arrival. We were seated in a lovely outdoor patio next to a beautiful tree covered in lights. Grace, our waitress, recommended the market fish, halibut, that was delicious! A must when dining here. The cocktails were great! The staff here made us feel relaxed as they efficiently attended to us during dinner. The restaurant is great for dinner when attending the LA Phil just a few blocks away at the Walt Disney Concert Hall as they provide a complementary shuttle between venues.
Was surprised to enjoy my meal after not dining here for years.
The service was superb and the food was quite tasty!
We've been to many of the Restaurants that are part of the Patina Restaurant Group and this restaurant is part of that group. Their Restaurants are all amazing! Great menus, wine lists, Chefs, and everyone else involved in serving you! Always a wonderful experience!
We definitely look forward to coming back to Cafe Pinot in the near future.
