Best meal ever!
Amazing food,great service,I'll definatly go back
Exceptional food and service.
It is outstanding food and service at a price consistent with outstanding food and service.
There is just no way around it: if you want this quality of food and this quality of service, it is expensive. Just is, unfortunately, since it means it can only be afforded a few times a year.
Host nice pleasant gentleman
Bartender male not very friendly very cold told him that it was my first time he couldn’t care less
Female bartender very nice ...
Waiter good enough
Surprised we ask for a little birthday candle and they said we don’t use candles here ... answering in a way like we were asking them for something not very glamorous... it’s a steak house in Hollywood....
I could go back just because the food ....
They can improve a bit the service... we have a lot of restaurants closing around... we need more customers we need more business... let’s make our guess feel welcome !!!
Nice appertizers. Main course not so good we had 80day ribeye and kurobuta pork chop.
Our dinner was good, but for the price we expected mind blowing which is was not. Seemed magnificently over priced.
Food’s absolutely incredible!
We are here before and loved it. This time was very disappointing. The steak was very fatty. The cauliflower had a gross thick sauce on it. On a positive note the waiter and Somalier were excellent.
Restaurant is fabulous. I love the art deco style and architecture. We went for Thanksgiving dinner and it was so delicious. There’s not a thing I would change except I think the stuffing and cranberry sauce should have been given to each of the diners rather than shared. My only critique. I loved how they brought me out a beautiful and soft cashmere shawl so I didn’t have to wear my jacket in the dining room which was on the cool side. Staff was very accommodating polite and willing to meet every need. Would love to come back here next year for Thanksgiving again.
We had lunch on Thanksgiving, so it was set menu. Food quality good and service attentive. We would have appreciated a bit more time in between courses.
Excellent all around. Great service, food and drinks.
The food and service was outstanding. The food was a bit pricey, but we knew that when we made the reservation. Our waitress was outstanding and she made the experience very pleasant. Our only complaint is the significant mark up on the wine. We are not opposed to healthy margins for restaurants, but the multiple on the bottle we ordered was beyond any reasonableness. If we are back in LA, we would eat there again, just want order any wine.
I can’t say enough good things about this place. It’s my favorite restaurant in LA. The Blackmore strip is to die for (arguably the best steak in town - and I’ve been to CUT) and service is second to none. Have been at least a dozen times and will be back again.
The selection of beef is unbelievable. Their wine selection from California and France was very good. The service and atmosphere was perfect for a nice romantic evening. We had the Wagyu Strip Steak cooked perfectly Medium Rare. We also had the Duck Fat cooked potatoes, Both dishes were perfect and very flavorful. Can hardly wait to go again.
Atmosphere was great but all the food was very salty. We both ordered steaks Medium-Rare and one was rare and the other medium. It was also my wife's birthday sand I asked for something to be done when I made the reservation, like bring a desert, but nothing happened :(
Great food, drinks and excellent service. We had a great time and would highly recommend this place for a nice evening out.
I'm relieved that a restaurant that specializes in the artistry of aging, preparing and masterfully grilling meat can thrive in Hollywood. Gwen a one-of-a-kind restaurant for those who appreciate the special attention to the handling and preparation of meat that you would expect of a world renowned sushi restaurant in their handling of fish. Gwen's attention to detail also translates to they exceptional salads. Granted, I've only eaten there once, but boy did it leave a lasting impression. I'll be back when my body is ready again for loads of high-end red meat and salads.
Wanted to order dessert but didn't see our waiter or anyone whos eye we could catch for the about 45 minutes. Was kind of unbeliuevable.
Fantastic 80 day aged ribeye topped of a beautiful set of starters after a cocktail in the lounge.
Kitchen was amazing with all of the wood fire and deco of the restaurant was beautiful. A great dinner!
Amazing place and food. I only marked them down as the waiter completely forgot my wine order.
The perfect place for a romantic date.
We had our anniversary dinner, the seive, food, atmosphere.. all good! The amount of food was not huge, which we liked. Their bread is super good too.
The food quality has gone down. I ate here once before I remember the food being so good. This time the octopus carpaccio did not have much taste to it. The salad was good but not great. The New York steak was OK but nothing to write home about considering how much you were paying. Even the duck fat fries was not as good as I remembered. What happened??
My husband and I went on a date night and had a great time. The food was delicious and the ambiance was lovely. The food was slightly salty for our taste but we would definitely recommend it.
The staff was informed and attentive. The food was incredible. Highly recommend going with “A Taste of Gwen” for first time dining. Beautiful space.
Excellent service and delicious food! All around great experience
I love this restaurant. Everything is excellent every time I go!
Wonderful and meticulous service. Delicious food and wonderful wine. The cooking is superb. This is definitely at the higher end of restaurants, but it is worth every penny! Highly recommend! Thank you for making our anniversary a memorable one!
A really delicious meal, memorable. This and Maude may be the two best restaurants in LA. Service was great, funny and kind. Only complaint is the room which somehow feels too informal for the level of food and price. The two rows of banquets just don’t work. Otherwise, a great meal.
The wine experience was poor. By the glass out of Corvin was not fairly priced for what was served. If you are charging that much, just pour it. Dictating to customers the appropriate temperature for red meat is pretentious and a touch off-putting. Staff is wonderfully engaging. Great place, just needs a fine tune.
Perfect cooked steak. A bit loud ...
Overall very good
The meat is really exceptional !! The potatoes with a special vinegar were great too.... Too bad the price, or I ll have make it my personal kitchen .....
Ottimi piatti ma la temperatura del locale ha rovinato il tutto: sembrava di stare in una cella frigorifera.
Thank you for making our anniversary dinner extra special
My husband and I came here for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary and are very happy we did. Everything was amazing from the service the moment we walked in to all the food we ordered. We’ll definitely be back when we’re in LA again
Pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the interior of this place is. The food was great and the staff made dining a well remembered experience.
Overpriced but good. Not outstanding, just good. There are way better high end places for less money around LA if you are looking fo good meat
Sat at the counter. Food was excellent but portions small and price high.
