Amazing dinner experience. Great cocktails and great service.
Great food and service. Steaks were excellent. Would recommend sitting downstairs
Amazing service. Great food. Pricey but for a special occasion a great spot.
Amazing service from the moment we stepped in the door. Complimentary champagne for our honeymoon, amazing staff who knew the menu like the back of their hand and food that brought me to tears. Absolute recommendation for anyone coming to LA.
Great food. Obscenely overpriced.
Looks that the waiter knew the menu by memory, they took long in each level of service.
Best steak in LA. Excellent service. One of my favorites.
This is our "go to" restaurant for special occasions. The food is always great! Although, all waiters should speak more slowly, when explaining the specials, & detailing the menu items.
We went for our anniversary, and we're welcomed with champagne by our server. The food was fantastic, the service was great. It takes a bbut of time to cook a steak, but it's well worth it. We loved this place.
A lovely evening at this Sunset eatery: appealing atmosphere and decor (Art Deco meets industrial light chic), innovative and delicious dishes, and a well-trained and professional staff made our dinner a special occasion. Kudos to Morgan the Wine Director for an excellent recommendation of a Spanish red (Mencia) that was literally singing that night!
Pretentious and over-priced with an extremely rude manager. Never going back, would not recommend it to anyone.
We really loved it. If there is a concern it is that some of the appetizer and side portions are on the small side for the price. All delicious and portions more suited for 2 than 4
had a nice time on Saturday, great drinks and ambiance. Food was a bit underwhelming. We got the bone in ribeye and were told the chef's recommendation was med-rare. Unfortunately it came more rare than we expected... kind of disappointing considering the price point..
Food was fine. They specialize in fresh cut meats from the butcher shop in front of the restaurant. Our server was horrible. He never checked on us. Never refilled our glasses and just disappeared at the end of the meal.
A meat lovers haven. “The best lamb I have ever had” per my hubby. My sea bream was also delicious and made to perfection.
The service was sporadic ... the wine service was practically non existent ... the food was good ...
I wouldn't tell someone they must go there.
Noisy. Understaffed. Slow service. Good meat though but it is the second time i am disappointed in tjem
The food was wonderful as was all the attention we received from the staff. I'd go back "early and often".
Too noisy, could not carry on a conversation. Food was good but not exceptional.
Extraordinarily delicious, everything, especially the cocktails and the incredible steak.
They gave sparking wine as compliments for our anniversary celebration.
Meat really wasn’t amazing. Sides were rather poor too. Waiter had no clue about the meats, what I would expect for a butcher shop. Spare this one.
Service was amazing. Best steak ever! Not enough gluten free options and waiter should have been aware of birthday and gluten allergy since someone called the day before for that information. I would have preferred that knowledge over the steak knife presentation
From the food to the service everything was on point. Visiting LA from Seattle and Gwen blows restaurants like Canlis, and Daniel’s Broiler out of the water. I’ll go as far and say that Gwen is on my list of top 5 restaurants I have ever visited. I’m looking forward to visiting Gwen’s sister restaurant, Maude soon. Thank you to the incredible waitstaff!!
We’ve eaten at Gwen twice. Both times have been absolutely outstanding. Great service from Austin the first time and Allen the second. One of our favorite places to eat in LA.
Really loved the joint super friendly and very attentive to guests. I wish the owner would make his presence more known at least pass by the tables and wave or greet some guests since he’s the main reason for visiting. Give 10 ⭐️ ⭐️
Absolutely delicious food!!
Absolutely gorgeous interior and a truly incredible dining experience. If you're a fine of cured meats and high-end food, then this is the place for you!
The food was delicious and excellent service. Great dinner date with my wife.
VERY disappointing! I would not recommend Gwen for a special occasion! My husband and I came here to celebrate my birthday, which I noted when making the reservation, however, no one from the staff acknowledged this in any way or wished me a happy birthday.
The set menu for the evening was absolutely delicious!
Great food and service! Beautiful restaurant. Definitely one of my top 5 restaurants as the food here is consistently good.
Taste of Gwen was fantastic! Perfect for date night.
Incredible steak. Incredible service. You will absolutely not regret coming here. Must visit in LA!
Loved the food and ambiance. Service was great but our server felt like a robot. Didn't emit any personality, not a smile, it was odd.
If you like Wagu, this seems to be the place. But the rest of the menu was limited!!
The food was absolutely incredible, our server helped us with great recommendations and went above and beyond for us. Chef Juan and his crew blew us away with how incredible the food was. Definitely going back
Great restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff. Fabulous food. Impressive wine list. A perfect special occasion place!
