    Food was terrible. Really disappointing. The bolognese was tasteless. The panzanella bitter. The amatriciana oil tasted scorched/burnt. The wine the waiter recommended was meh at best. I’ve been going to Felix since it opened. I won’t go back. Way better ways to spend $600 on a dinner. Clear that Evan is fixated on his other endeavors and cares little for what’s going on at the original.

    Some of the rules here are just too precious for me. All food had to be ordered at the same time. $40 charge for late cancellations at a place where you sit on a back patio.. Food was undercooked. Pizza was soggy - in retrospect we should have sent it back - pasta on the way forward side of al dente.

    Just Meh. Atmosphere was nice but was not impressed with the food or the chefs requests that all food be ordered at one time and the chef paces. If the chef is not on the floor with the serving staff, he cannot effectively pace the food process. And, it was not effective.

    The greeter at the front was one of the worst people I have ever met. If she is the person responsible for setting the tone for the evening then she should be removed.

    Food was ranging from pretty good to great. Service was efficient and friendly. Nice appropriate wine list and Som was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is lively and a bit loud and tables are a little tight. If you’re looking for a romantic dining experience maybe not the best choice and I believe the service would shine a little better if it wasn’t so frenetic. I would have enjoyed the experience a little more if it was calm in order to really enjoy what they have to offer. Still a great meal

    World-class pasta. Top tier bread appetizers. Excellent carrot/nuts vegetable appetizer. Weakest item margherita pizza, above average. Extremely impressive overall, next time I travel to LA will be sure to come back!

    Felix is a total delight. We had a simple round table in the back where we had been seated before They were ogng to put us in a booth in the back of the front section and I said,pleaee put us a the rund table. The cooperated..huge difference and terrific everything. Server excellent, support team terrific...food all excellent. Pizza very special. Drinks were good, two martini drinkers. I had beer all simple and delicious. Price fair for such quality and variety. We had 7 different dishes all family style. Everyone loved everything. The bread was outstanding. Several dishes were so ogood you know you have to come back for them.

    We ate at Felix for the 4th time in a few years. It was as wonderful as I remembered! It was so delicious that I tried to "replicate" our dinner for our daughter and out of town friends. We started with the panzanella salad- outstanding Next we had pizza- outstanding Following were two pasta dishes- again- outstanding. There was no room for dessert! Thoroughly enjoyed. Sad that some of the group's restaurants have closed, especially Bicyclette, but at least there is Felix.

    It was a real turn off, not being able to understand the menu as it is completely all in Italian, except for the alcohol. I understand maybe putting the title of the dish in Italian, but having the manager explain 12 dishes, and what they are was offputting. The bread was amazing the service was excellent and the ambience was nice. The pasta was OK.

    The layout of the place was nice, we sat in the back area which felt less “crowded” than the other indoor rooms. Our service was great and explained a detailed outline of what the menu entailed and recommended items. This was our first time coming and tried a few items from each section and really found all the food to be delicious and the cocktails were amazing as well. We look forward to returning for a future dinning experience soon.

    Started off on the wrong foot when we were led to the heated patio when I thought that I had made a reservation for the dining room.  I made the reservation early enough to get inside dining room reservations, but when we arrived, the receptionist said that I had selected the heated patio standard seating. No way. my wife does not want to sit outside because she gets cold very easily. I firmly believe Felix changed my reservation from inside standard seating to the heated patio, because they were having trouble finding inside tables for all booked parties of five. I confirmed with OpenTable that the restaurant can change the seating arrangements, and they have no control over that nor can they see it on their system. It’s too bad, because I like the restaurant, but think it probably caters to the upper crust of the LA area.

    C'mon! Have spent the last 3 Valentine's Days here, but no more. Noise level was way better than last year but the utter lack of graciousness was marked. One thing I used to say about Felix is that it was worth it. If they messed up, even on VDay, they offered a compensation of some sort - comp salad etc., and always with a smile. 2023 was a bit of disaster, but I'd give it 5 stars bc of the way they handled issues of timing or bad batter. The biggest letdown in 2024 was the pasta - their supposed strength. No matter how many appetizers we had, in the past we were never too stuffed to eat their delicious pasta. This time, not so. Neither the bolognese or the cacio e pepe (standards IMO) were delectable. After the 1st bite, didn't necessarily want the 2nd. And just so.much.money, even w/out booze.

    Always a treat! The very best zucchini blossoms this side of Italy and frankly better than most places in Italy! Every dish at Felix is marvelous and this time was no exception. We shared a wonderful arugula salad and then a pizza and then an exceptional pasta dish. Lots of wine and in all an incredible evening.
