Please call the restaurant for reservations over 5 people.
Good food, excellent cocktails and an overall vibrant environment.
Octopus was soft and rubbery. Flavorless. Farro salad was delicious. Service was slow. Had to wait quite a while before getting drinks, then ordered a second glass of wine which I had to remind them about 15 minutes after ordering. Not impressed.
WhIle I enjoy the ambience and appreciate it as a neighborhood convenience, I find their appetizers and entrees to be a bit overpriced. I also don't see enough changes to the menu from month to month. Is it just me, or has the shrimp & chorizo burger been on the menu since Commerson's opened?
Great service, attentive management, innovative dishes...and many thanks! for the round of drinks.
We were in on a late Sunday evening, so there was no noise. We sat at the bar, had the ceviche, Brussel sprouts and fries. The sprouts were especially tasty, and out crispy fries were so yummy with the aioli.
Went with a group of 6 people ages 30-55. Our reservation was ready when we arrived and got seated right away. The food was outstanding - everyone was very impressed w/ the meal. In particular the octopus, salmon and chorizo/shrimp burger. I had a spicy margarita and it may be one of the best I have ever had. All 6 of us left very pleased and had a great experience!
Great service and very nice food. If sensitive to noise go early, it will be cacophonous later. No sound abatement whatsoeve. Music choices are suspect and TVs behind the bar should go.
The music was energetic BUT TOO LOUD!!! The Receptionist was not receptive or friendly.
The food was fine. The noise level in the restaurant is horrible. The TV was blasting, the music was energetic but TOO loud against the sound of the TV which was featuring a sporting event. We were a party of two and could not hear each other across the table. We almost took out a piece of paper and pens so we could communicate by written word.
Perhaps, it is because we are Senior Citizens and Commerson obviously does not want to attract that type of clientele.
Mediocre food, inattentive slow service, overpriced. Maybe would go back for happy hour to sit at the bar, but otherwise will stay away.
We had a great time! The food was delicious and the people were lovely!
The food here is stellar. We were there on a Tues eve so it wasn’t too crowded - which meant it wasn’t as noisy / loud as it can get on a ‘weekend’ type eve. Also our waitress was super delightful, helpful & attentive. There was a little problem w the parking be cause the entrance by the restaurant wasn’t open. Great food. Great drinks. Not cheap but pretty on par for the quality served.
Our server was fantastic. Some people in my group were a little difficult with regard to their cocktail selection and our server handled us kindly and gracefully. I am appreciative of her help. Thank you
Great service. The food is fine. Very noisy outside.
I would not come here again. The restaurant was empty but still our waitress did not keep track of our orders and the sides never came out until requested twice. My manhattan-style drink was watery and cost $15.
I am upset I did not know about this place when they opened. Great experience.
I dream about the pork chop. So delicious. Although a little loud, the whole experience was great. The food is first rate and the service was excellent.
Delicious food in a casual atmosphere with top notch service.
How was Commerson? Amazing as always. We love the food, we love Morgan (the entire team is friendly and on it. We "take advantage" of the happy hour - sort of a steal. So order some non happy menu and tip the awesome team well. Cant say enough good things about this place.
We will go back!! I just wish it was a bit more intimate. The food and staff were so nice to accommodate our party that got bigger. Food was delicious.
Really good food and $20 bottomless mimosas. The burger was delicious, the wagyu steak and eggs were perfectly made, and the french toast was a great brunch dessert. Service slowed a little when it got busy but that can be expected. The hostess was welcoming and accommodating.
Got an early reservation, got there right around opening. Parked on the street. Had a drink at the bar for happy hour. Then we had the beef pot roast and the scallops, which I've never had before. I am now a fan of seared scallops. I also had a glass of very nice cabernet. Overall, this was a nice dining experience.
It was a birthday celebration for us, so we wanted something special - it was! Scallops were delectable; NY steak juicy and flavorful. The before dinner drinks were very well prepared, if a bit slow getting to us. We shared the octopus as a starter; that was our only disappointment - odd seasoning we thought. The apple tart was yummy and the HAPPY BIRTHDAY decorating the plate in chocolate was a lovely thought. The waitress was charming as was the hostess, both making us feel most welcome, even though we were probably the age of most of the guests parents! We wish the seats had cushions. Bravo to the chef!
We had such a good time, the food was outstanding and the vibe was great. The service matched the menu so it was an overall enjoyable experience. We will definitely be returning.
We were catching a concert at the El Rey which is withing walking distance. Commerson looked like a good fit for what we like. We started with the Red Snapper ceviche, super good. We shared the shrimp/chorizo burger, and the spare ribs. The burger was salty, and just soso. The spare ribs were AWESOME. We added some truffle fries, to the burger order and it was well worth it. The restaurant is a little loud, but it let you know the other guests were having a good time too.
Love the happy hour at Commerson! Great atmosphere, delicious food and wine, and a great deal.
Our sever was a pleasure!
Overall it was a so-so experience. The service is lacking but it may be because of limited staff on that particular day.
Great mid-city neighborhood gem! This is my second time eating here and it certainly did not disappoint!
This was a sub par meal and was grossly overpriced. There are many good places to get brunch in LA and Commerson is not one of them.
Outstanding. The best restaurant you're not eating at. Love this place!!
Everything was great, just a bit over the average price that was set on open table!
We had a wonderful time.we took the kids and the server could not have been more delightful and accommodating. This will definitely be one of our local family favorites.
Best overall restaurant
I went to the restaurant for the first time as part of the January 2019 DINE LA promotion. It was a great way to be introduced to the restaurant for dinner, and we thoroughly enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. The staff is well trained, professional and friendly. The ceviche was probably the best I've ever eaten, and the seared scallops with spinach and garlic were fresh and delicious. Both desserts that I tasted, the S'more and the Carrot Cake, were flavorful, fresh and presented nicely. I live in the neighborhood and I'm looking forward to going regularly. I think it would also be a nice place to take visiting overnight guests for a fine meal.
We went for the Dine LA menu after an event at the nearby Wilshire Ebell theater, and found it an outstanding value. The 3 course menu was excellent. My friend and I both had delicious pumpkin agnolotti in brown butter sage sauce, followed by scallops for her (3 but huge, tasty) and a Niman Ranch pork chop for me (excellent, tender, tasty). Good vegetable sides, also. For dessert, the carrot cake was wonderful primarily because of the candied carrots that topped it, a novel and delicious way to update a California standard dessert. I had the wine pairings which were very good and a good value for $25 (Trefethen Chardonnay, a good Pinot Noir and a sauternes for dessert). Everything was well done. My only complaint is that the banquette seating along the windows is backless, so I took the wooden chair. Backless seating is not my idea of comfort during a 3 course dinner! The restaurant was not as crowded as it should be, so hurry up and support it!
We enjoyed good food and good service which made it perfect for us to gather and celebrate a birthday.
Amazing food, service was good. And overall experience was absolute pleasure
Restaurant was too dark to see the menu. Otherwise, I will go there again. Food was excellent.
We love Commerson and go on a regular basis. Cocktails are fantastic. As for food we love the salmon, scallops, chicken, ceviche and just about anything we order. (We miss the salmon poke and kale salad!) Casual enough for every day, but with enough ambiance and food creativity to make the evening special. The staff is friendly. The parking is easy and convenient. Could be a tad brighter and quieter for older folks (we sometimes bring my mother) but that hasn't kept us away. Definitely worth a visit.. or two or three or four!
Our party of four (4) had a great time! Service, ambiance, and menu was delightful. I will definitely be back for dinner and possibly brunch. Cheers!
