NOW we know why it is so challenging to get reservations - it is soooooo worth it. Loved even getting to chat with Chef. Perfect food and evening.

Felix is absolutely an amazing experience, our server was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the wine and the dishes.

We had the market salad, gamberi prawns, the new fig and prosciutto pizza, the mezze maniche, oricchiette, and the parapadelle. The chef surprised us with the trofie pesto pasta on them as well.

Finally, the budino and tiramisu were delicious, budino with the slight edge.

The prawns, pizza, mezze and oricchiette were absolutely amazing, not that anything was less than, but those were my standouts.

Go, get a res ASAP, I can’t recommend enough.

Fantastic, amazing, wonderful meal. Very straight-forward menu but each item is excellent. We had the squash blossoms, the prawns, the burrata foccacia, a pizza, and two pastas - incredible. Great atmosphere outdoors, beautiful indoors. Truly an L.A. gem.

Our server was lovely, but unfortunately that was the only highlight. Food wise, it was mediocre at best. The appetizers were good and the pizza was okay but the pastas were way, way too salty (literally inedible) and very one note. Does not warrant the near impossible to make reservations or the high prices. Not even by a long shot. If you want good italian, go to Angelini Osteria or even Scopa down the street.

This place is perfect. Do a cocktail with the sfincione, switch to wine for the pastas, sample some amari for dessert. Whatever you do, enjoy being in this special space with these wonderfully talented chefs and FOH staff.

The best pasta!!! Service was great. I was lucky to sit by the pasta room and watch the ball of dough turned into a thin fabric. The sea urchin spaghetti special was amazing! The orecchiette is a must every time I am here.

We were seated for our 9 pm reservation 25 minutes late. After ordering - we were told 15 mins later the kitchen was closing so we needed to hurry up and add anything more to our order. After the pizza came out we were asked three times while enjoying our time with wine and the other dishes if they could bring us a box to pack up the pizza to go. The food was amazing however the night was hurried and rushed - not relaxing at all which is unfortunate. We visited from San Francisco and were so excited for this reservation at your restaurant. I think you need to work on not seating customers late especially if it’s your last seating so customers do not feel agitated. :(.

We were seated 35 mins after our reservation time. The waiting area had no water or beverage service so we had to wait without anything to drink or snack on. The hostess was a bit rude about the entire experience - especially when I asked if we could get some water while we wait. Once we sat down we did have great service and they brought us two free apps. But I still was surprised by the service and poor timing.

This meal was better than I had hoped and imagined. The photos can't capture how amazing the food tastes in person. You could taste the quality of the ingredients and attention to detail. The staff is wonderful as well. I will be returning to try other items and have that bread again.

Honestly felt like this restaurant is extremely overrated. The food is just ok, our pizza was quite nice but the pasta was not good - too salty and the pasta was not cooked al dente, it was undercooked. Find the service very pretentious and they make it very clear when you sit down that there is a time limit to your reservation which I HATE!
I definitely do not recommend and would not go back even for a free meal.

Felix has been our favorite restaurant in LA for a while now, but our most recent visit for our anniversary was a little disappointing. The al fresco seating was much nicer when there were tables in the garden area. The turfed area where tables now are feels like a cheesy bar. We were also SO bummed that the tagliatelle Bolognese is now served as pappardelle instead — it completely changes the dish for the worse unfortunately. The tagliatelle had been one of our main reasons for visiting Felix. We also ordered everything at once, as required, expecting our meal to be coursed out appropriately, but instead, everything came out at once, which meant cold pasta by the time we got to some of the dishes. This experience made us very hesitant to return, as we live 90 minutes away (and the pasta costs costs a pretty penny). Pretty disappointing unfortunately...

Loved everything about Felix. 💕It was a Monday evening. The food was delizioso and staff were friendly. The restroom was so clean. Probably the cleanest restaurant bathroom in Los Angeles. Anyways, my friend and I will be back soon!

Felix is one of the great Los Angeles restaurants. It's selections are unique --- e.g. its crayfish is spectacular as is its choice of offerings --- and the cooking extraordinary. The pasta is invariably al dente and reflects a special knowledge of Italy. My favorite.

They don’t have de reservation control in site, complex to manage the reservation with international number

I tried to make the reservation by the restaurant site, by phone and directly in the restaurant and couldn’t . Opentable was the solution, believe it or not.....
