What Insiders Are Saying
Chi Spacca in Hollywood is one of our favorite places to get excessive in LA. This involves a lot of meat.
One of the best meals I’ve had in Los Angeles in years. Every course, from the appetizer to main was davine. The bone marrow pot pie was out of this world.
It’s expensive, but at least the portion sizes are huge.
The services is as excellent as the food.
Couldn’t recommend more.
Waitress was exceptional with her recommendations.
Great service staff. Big portions so price is not too much of an issue. Food was tasty. Would return to try different items.
Every aspect of our experience - food, service & ambiance was AMAZING!!!
A fabulous meal. Only thing I did not like was having to wait for my guest to arrive and ordering g a glass of wine at the hostess stand. Tacky and awkward.
A great place for a Valentine’s Day dinner. It’s intimate setting makes talking easy - no need to speak loudly to be heard. The food was plentiful, delicious and beautifully presented. The food is meant for sharing so no need for each diner to order two entrees etc. We will definitely return.
The food was off the charts! The toasted pane with the meat drippings is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. I can’t stop thinking about it. Our server was wonderful and we took a budino home with us.
Amazing food and ambiance.
Food was delicious. Staff was great.
We had a great time thank you to everyone at Chi SPACCA. The food was amazing. Portion were perfect for out party of five.
We waited 45 minutes after ordering for our first course to arrive. Everything was over salted: focaccia, short ribs, salad, and branzino. The noise was deafening, and the price for three people -- $400, including tip -- was too high for such an unenjoyable experience.
chi Spacca is one of LA’s finest dining spots. The menu features flavors and unique dishes not found in the kitchens of LA’s trendy internet food darlings. The food is as classic and honest as their vocal and jazz standards playlist. No early 90’s hip hop here. I officially declare this my favorite restaurant in Los Angeles.
Everything was perfect. The service, the food, the wine suggestion. I mean, the food was outstanding. We will definitely be back!
In LA for business and was looking for a worthy solo meal. When I’m dining by myself I love sitting a the “bar” where the food is cooked so I can see the magic happen and interact with the chefs. chi SPACCA did NOT disappoint. Loved every bit of it.
Overall the food is good, the only thing bit uncomfortable is the chicken still got blood in the mid.
I have been here before, and 1/30/19 was my second time. It definitely did not disappoint me again, I will be back soon for the food and place it self worth coming back for.
My 3rd time and i’m moving my review from 5 to 1 star, Server was rude, food quality went down.
Love sitting at the bar!
The food is delicious, the staff is delightful and attentive, and it is a cozy and warm atmosphere. Definitely will be a regular!
Meilleure focaccia que j’ai jamais mangé
Le poisson et la pieuvre étaient divins
If you enjoy meat you can not miss chi SPACCA. The short ribs were phenomenal. The affettati misti was great and I am glad I tried it, but I will possibly skip next time and try another main. Everything I saw going to the other tables looked amazing as well and I wish my wife and I had room to try more. I need to bring a few more friends and tackle the porterhouse.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
service needs to improve to be able to match the incredible food
Great restaurant! All of the food is to die for. The only complaint I had is that our pizza type (can't remember the name) came extremely dry compared to normal. really all the outside pieces were dry and only the centerpiece tasted like it normally does or had the amount of cheese/flavor etc. aside from that the rest of our food was amazing!
Once again Chi Spacca does not disappoint.
Food is great, the space is wonderful, and no complaints in that regard.
I only wish the waitresses and kitchen staff would be a little bit more friendly, after all you're in a small space with all of them. The common feeling at our table was that they were annoyed to be there while kitchen staff could have used a smile, especially when a curious and humble restauranteur like myself only asked to know what a piece of meat on the grill was. Service is half the experience and the servers should be proud to be in such a great establishment and treat the guest accordingly, regardless of who they might be.
Hopefully management takes this review into consideration.
One of our favorite places for special occasions. Food and service are amazing. Don't forget the Tomahawk Pork Chop, Little Gems salad and of course the Focaccia di Recco
Not sure why they included the whole carcass of the squab on the plate- yes head included. It was remarkably off-putting, and changed the whole vibe of the meal.
Great Italian steakhouse with vegetable and salad choices extensive and delicious. Perfect for both the carnivore and the vegetarian. If you like action sit at the bar; great to watch the chef cook
service needs to improve. just because a table sits late doesn't mean the servers can rush them out and not be respectful. i have dined at chi spacca many times. since when do servers tell patrons whcih dishes take over 30 minutes to prepare which would consist of about 70% of anything on the entree menu unless they wanted to rush a table which sat late and closer to closing time. very uncomfortable and very bad service. a patron when paying a lot of money to fine dine should not have to consistently ask for more water and wine. horrible service!
Focaccia which is not how we think of focaccia as as Nancy silverton said on chef’s table, ‘you made an Italian quesadilla. Just order it. The beef and marrow pie was a masterpiece. The duck and 5 Chinese spices was a pleasant surprise and that forbidden rice was a wave of culinary excellence that delighted. The Panna cotta type hazelnut dessert was a bomb. The edges burnt crisp, burnt hazelnuts, mouth feel like pablum and although the honey sorbet was delish it so was not right with this dish. Get rid of that dish. I wanted the butterscotch boudino which I later heard was the bomb. And the wait staff was annoyed that I mentioned the quesadilla thing (how about you research the owner and giggle with us about it as Nancy so quaintly did on Netflix) and acted as though we were idiots that this was family style. One Pretentious waiter can ruin the ambiance and she was trying her damndest but the other staff were lovely.
The octopus was insane. The chicken was outstanding. We truly enjoyed everything. Can't wait to go back.
One of the best steaks in Los Angeles. High price, high quality.
Perhaps the best steak I’ve ever eaten. Food was phenomenal. Restaurant is on the pricey side but worth it.
Thank you, Nancy Silverton, for a perfect evening. Having watched your episode on Chef's Table, we were excited for the opportunity to experience. Our server, Chelsea, was magnificent, paying particular attention at all times. My only slight downgrade with the service involved the presentation of our main entrees - my entree was placed on the table but my wife's entree was 3 to 5 minutes later. With the manner in which they perfectly handled every other course (using runners instead of the server), having to wait for my wife's entree was a little disappointing. We assume there may have been a last-minute issue caught by the expeditor. Regardless, we look forward to the experience again, next time reserving seats at the chef's counter in front of the open kitchen.
not only was the food very very sub par, but the service was terrible.... almost three hours for dinner was so unacceptable. such a dissapointment..........
It's obviously a "good" restaurant. But they cook the meat very rare and if that's not your thing, you're told they're going to do it their way, and if you don't like it, you can send it back for more cooking. Which means they put it on you to have to be difficult to get what you want. We spent $700 and I barely touched the main courses, just brought them home and finished cooking them to my taste there. I would never have taken the time to explain this if OpenTable hadn't asked. Like I said: good restaurant, but be forewarned if you don't like rare meat.
Always great food as usual. Like this place very much.
Never disappoints, always feels like a special experience. Bring a group that wants to eat.
