    Service was very slow we’ve been there before but service was much up to speed . Our waiter was sweet but we felt like he was too shined out trying to attend to everyone. We didn’t even get approached until after 15 min when o made and eye contact with him when he was walking by . Hope things will get better soon !

    To start, what a gorgeous place. Interesting takes on Mediterranean favorites - more spice than expected on some dishes but nothing bad. Great and interesting cocktails. Crowded, loud, and hard to get reservations but worth it. Salmon was superb, not over cooked. We will be back

    Beautiful space. Rather, pricey for what you get. Chicken Parmesan for $28 was a single breaded breast in tomato sauce without any pasta or side. $3 for four small breadsticks when we thought they would have been complementary. A Baileys coffee was a small cup of coffee with a shot of liquor (no whipped cream) for $18. It's definitely a special occasion place for patrons with money to burn.

    Loved the mock tail and cocktails! The menu is a bit copy paste from many of the LA options, but would recommend a pasta or pizza. Steak is cooked well but meat quality is not super high end

    Upon arrival our reservation was honored and we were seated immediately. A good start. It’s loud and very busy which I took as a good sign. Our server was friendly but could not articulate or explain the menu or the specials. Not a good sign. The first course was fine. We had the octopus and the Burrata special with figs. Our server did not come and ask how we were doing or if we liked the dishes. Never checking in is inexcusable. The main course was ok. The shrimp scampi was not traditional in any way which is fine, but should be noted as our version of scampi. The shrimp were not correct for the dish. They were small and overcooked. The sauce was good, but not lemon and capers. Our server could not explain the scampi properly, pushing us to order French fries with it because the baguette that came with the dish would not be sufficient . That was not the case as the dish was fine on its own,The other dish was an oxtail pasta. This was flavorless and bland. The server never came over to check in and ask if we liked the food. The desert was also bland. We ordered the apple tart. It was not sweet at all. It had no spices or sugar and gelato did not have a vanilla taste. The couple sitting next to us had the same reaction. They also ordered the special dessert an oat crumble which they said was not good. Clearly the restaurant needs a good chef and a good pastry chef. As it is now, we will not return

    We sat for 30 min without any water or waiters coming to ask us if we needed anyone. The manger passed by multiple times without speaking to us. The hostesses were the only highlight to our experience as they were extremely apologetic after I explained the situation. The manager could not have cared less.

    The meal and the service were incredible. Everything we ate was extremely enjoyable and I would eat it all again. I have food allergies and the servers were extremely helpful in ensuring I picked the right food item. I ended up going with the Miso glazed sea bass, chanterelle mushroom, truffle risotto. It was one of the best things I have ever had. The flavor combination was exquisite. Each bite was a perfect flavor explosion. Honestly I want to try to go again tomorrow to get it again.

    Honestly, I was really excited to come to the restaurant. It was my first time since they changed from The Villa. I had looked at the menu ahead of time and heard about certain items that were quite delicious. I came for my friends birthday dinner, and we had a 5 o’clock reservation on the Sunday. I asked to be seated in a cozier spot, not knowing what to expect with the new layout. we were seated right on the end in the fireplace dining room, closest to the bar and where the food came out. Probably wouldn’t have been my first choice but it was OK. Another couple was seated next to us and a server came to them before ever coming to us. I actually got up and asked a manager if they could kindly send someone over. I heard the octopus was fantastic and ordered it but found it to be on the dryer side and I’m honestly not that picky with food, I will try it again. My Seabass was off the charts delicious and so were the Wagyu meatballs. My friend had the, short ribs, they were OK not as tender as I’ve had in the past, the flavor was good.  we each had a glass of wine and ordered a dessert. The pear crumble. I’m a huge dessert person and sorry to say it was disappointed with the dessert. The fruit was really firm the crumble was on the dry side not warm, buttery and delicious like I would have expected. As a matter of fact, it was barely warm. Passed on that probably will try something else on another occasion. I normally don’t share experiences. However, I held this restaurant in high regard and was hoping for a much better experience, which is why I’m commenting today and I thank you so much for taking the time to read about our experience.

    Food and staff were great. I was surprised how good some if it was, honestly, particularly the branzino was cooked perfectly. You can tell they go out of their way to hire great staff. It’s medium noisy as you would expect. The decor is pleasant but not totally consistent. Nice big windows and skylights. This was Saturday brunch.

    This is our second time coming to Casalena and we absolutely love! The food is amazing - we recommend the corn agnolotti, the kale and white bean salad and the shrimp scampi off the dinner menu. If you sit at the bar for late night, order the charcuterie board and the spaghetti pomodoro. The drinks are fantastic as well! We love the vibe and the ambience. Can't wait to go back.

    The ambiance was beautiful. Food was good. Service was average. Tables are positioned too close to each other where you can hear the couple next to you talking. I wish they would space the seating a little bit more apart rather than trying to get the most tables in. Waitress wanted to charge me for dijon mustard :( so tacky. Bartender was rude He looked like he was having a bad day.
