Doheny Room - SBE Ratings and Reviews
My experience was terrible for a birthday celebration. We were seated by the door and the service was so below any restaurant standard I have ever experienced. It took almost 40 minutes for our server to bring a beer and it came just the bottle—no glassware. No imagine how long it took to order food. After complaining of the horrible experience the manager took off our dessert on a $200++ bill and still charged 20% gratuity for services not rendered. I would not recommend this experience to anyone.
Oh no no no no Doheney room... Your behavior on Friday night was simply reprehensible.
I made a reservation a week early to take one of our dearest friends out for his birthday, we had a table of eight. From the moment that I walked in the door at 7:45 on a Friday nite, the treatment was completely subpar. Even though I reserved a week ago & the restaurant was empty, the hostess told me that I MUST be seated upstairs. Apparently, this is some sort of punishment for early arrivals. The young & naïve hostess explain the business model: "we seat people upstairs who come in first and then ask them to leave by 10:30 so that we can turn the upstairs into a nightclub"... Seriously? Well this would've been well and good if I didn't take a tour upstairs. It smelled like a frat house on a Sunday morning with lounge-y couches and low tables... Certainly not apropos for a dinner party! The manager Holly who insisted that I take my party up there which I flatly refused... Finally, she relented & gave us a gorgeous table downstairs and here's the good part: the food was off the hook almost making this whole hospitality travesty worthwhile, but here's the rub: we had to ask for dessert with a candle no less than five times it took them almost 45 minutes to bring 2 desserts. Sam, I hope you're reading this. We are huge fan of the SBE Group and absolutely love Cleo's & Bazaar where we been treated exquisitely. Doheney room has such potential. As a foodie we appreciate your chef, But otherwise this restaurant is for the "clubbers"... For a discerning clientele, the management needs to recalibrate and be educated not treat guests like garbage. And for the record, there must've been a lot of cancellations because during the course of dinner, barely half the restaurant was seated. Shame on you Management of Doheney room for giving me and my party such a hard time. Sadly, I can't recommend this property my many friends on Social Media, nor do we have plans to return.
I love the food here. Though I think they changed the menu again. Downsized. I don't recommend coming here for a romantic date. It's loud in there you'll have to scream in order to have a conversation with someone. TBH service is not that great and they are slow, but the food makes it worth coming back.
A great atmosohere, hospitable and kind staff, and amazing/unique food! It was an all around wonderful experience! I definitely recommend! The brussel sprouts were awesome! We also had the avocado and beets sushi was wonderful! We also got the steak meal which was perfect! Lastly the chocolate dome dessert gets set on fire and is a beautiful dessert as well as delicious! Make sure to go on your trip to West Hollywood! Also Brenda was our server and she was the sweetest lady!
The people were very nice, our server, runners and bussers were all very good and attentive. We were the only table in the room until almost 9pm so it felt a little weird. But. The food was delicious, the SBE Brussels Sprouts never disappoint, and the room was interesting. Overall a good experience.
It was date night with my husband after a very long month and hectic schedules. We were looking forward to a fantastic evening but that didn't happen, well it did, eventually; however not at this venue.
When we arrived we were seated quite promptly. However, we then sat for 24 minutes without a single member of staff even attempting to speak to us or offer us a drink, talk through the menu - NOTHING!! . Absolutely abysmal. There were servers leaning on the bar chatting. When a couple entered the restaurant, sat next to us, were greeted, and offered drinks within 2 or so minutes - that was our que to leave and never head back.
Very disappointed. We were shown to our table immediately, service was good taking orders.
Started with a salad, not finished when main course put on the table to get cold
Check was put on our table before we finished dessert, no one asked about coffee or tea
Seemed strange as restaurant was not even half full.
Food was excellent
Valet $12, street parking hard to come by at that intersection. There are lots of good restaurants in LA without extra $15.
Wouldn't go back anyways with service, valet was just an added insult
Hugely noisy from canned music
Everything went wrong from the start. No waitress for a long time. Then the host told us two wait staff pulled a no-show. We could sympathize. Finally put in our drinks. Took a while to get them. Took forever to get our food. Then they brought the wrong desserts. Just a disaster from which they never seemed able to recover.
We wanted to try this place for Dine LA but the website failed to mention that it wasn't available on the weekends. However, the service was amazing. As soon as they realized that we had only come for dine LA, they sent us some complementary appetizers. Our waitress was friendly and engaging, but really, the whole staff checked in on us and made sure we were happy. Our dessert took forever but we didn't really care because everyone was so awesome.
Our business meeting and dinner was a great experience in the dining room with great food and service from our servers. However, when my associates and clients tried to go upstairs for the night club portion of the establishment the door staff was rude, and demanded an excessive tip to enter the club or buy bottle service. We are not an alcoholic group, so being forced to buy that much alcohol should never be forced on valued guests.
Table not ready when we came in on time.. the host ask us to wait at the bar, fair enough. We order 1 drink each ($80 for 4 drinks), as soon as I signed the receipt they tell us the table is ready...... I saw the table empty and already set up when we arrived.
it's not about the $$, it's the way they do it in most SBE's location that is not right. It was my 3rd time their and my last. ✌️
The food was delicious although the waitress said bacon comes out crispy it was limp and undercooked. Always order extra crispy. Served a complimentary glass of Rose wine but then it was on the final bill. Ordered a breakfast combo that we were told comes with a small side of breakfast potatoes but they were no where to be found. Ordered the pasta carbonara and we specifically asked all ingredients. We were told bacon crispy that you can crumble yet it too was limp AND the dish had ham in it! The waitress Ariel was poor on service and should give greater detail to service and perfection.
Just another trendy restaurant in LA but this time with rude and obnoxious staff The food is good but I would only recommend going to this restaurant if you like to be told that time is up to eat and you have to get up. So here is what happened... They forgot part of our meal, put it on the check, then when brought to their attention, proceeded to ask if we still wanted it. We said yes, we would like what we ordered. After 20 min they brought the missing item. About 1 minute later another server named Ashley came and with an obnoxious tone told us time is up to eat and that we need to get up from the table. We informed her that the last item had just been brought on the table and that we needed about 10 minutes to finish up. What was her response? "No". Then proceeded to remove the untouched item from the table. No apology... nothing. So if you like being treated like cattle then dine at this establishment. Otherwise, I would recommend finding another one of the wonderful trendy restaurants in LA that actually appreciate you patronage.
Food was amazing...ambiance was great. Kinda dead for a Saturday night? It got better around 10 PM. My reservation was at 7:45 and they couldn't accommodate a later one they said, however the place as basically empty until like 9 PM. So not sure why they do that??
We went on a Monday night so it was pretty quiet. In saying that, the service sucked. The waitress and bartender were unattentive which I find interesting since we were spending a lot of money. The $200 bottle of champagne we ordered took 25 mins to "locate" and when they brought it out it wasn't cold so we had to stare at it cooling in the bucket for another 30 minutes. I was excited for my girls date night there but it was definitely the wrong venue choice. Not food value for money and the service needs to step up and act like they care about their customers.
Overall was okay. Drinks were only 3/4 full when brought out. Out third drink only filled half the glass and when we told the server she said that they are always that much. My friend's drink was 3/4 full and when I showed her she got on the defensive. We asked to speak with the manager and he showed up to our table twenty minutes later. He was so professional, so accommodating, and apologized multiple times for his server's reaction. In his own words, "the customer is always right and we shouldn't argue." He comped the rest of our drinks and saved the night.
