We were sat upstairs and i wish we were downstairs - ambiance so much better - we felt a little bit left out! Food was ok not as good as I hoped - Steak took an hour to cook which is absurd - there is so much competition now in LA - its tough out there!
enjoyed the evening meal, especially the agnolotti, market salad, and the bread (yum!!!). this place is definitely for carnivores. the veggie sides were ok.
Was really looking forward to trying this place, and for this occasion, I was taking my girlfriend here to celebrate her birthday. We were going to be late because of traffic, so we called ahead to let them know that we're still coming and would only be at most 15 minutes late. We arrived just shy of 15 minutes past our original reservation and I informed the maître d' and she made a snarky comment "Ooh great, thanks for setting a new standard about being late". (I didn't think much about this comment until a little later). We were promptly seated, and was given the drink menu quickly, but after we ordered only water, we just could not find a single server to give us a menu to order food. This lasted for a good 20 minutes, until we started seeing three other tables of couples already getting their food (whom arrived after we were seated). So I flagged down the maître d', and asked her "Hi, I'm wondering if you know who our server is? I think we're ready to order soon". This was followed by her saying "Well, all the servers must be busy obviously helping other people, your server will get to you when they can". Our waiter finally arrived and after dropping off the menu, we had to wait another 20 minutes to order. He was really trying hard to sell us something besides water I suppose, because we kept insisting we were happy with just water. So after 10 minutes of him trying to tell us about other drinks, I decided ok fine, just give it to us and let us order our food please. We ordered the foie gras, ceviche, their pasta and a New York steak. They bring you a some bread and be warned, they are piping hot!! The foie gras was amazing! The ceviche was a close second to being our favorite of the night. Pasta was way too cheesy (coming from somebody who loves cheese), steak arrived cold and not even medium rare. Was not in the mood to ask them to recook it, or why it was cold, because we weren't sure how long they would take to even get that done.
Amazing, imaginative food. Love that Curtis Stone often visits the tables. Special.
We had a wonderful experience at Gwen. The tasting menu was great, and we really appreciated the touches of the correct wine glasses and the opportunity to pick our steak knife!
Amazing food and great ambiance. Highly recommended
Excellent mixologists and admirable Mezcal collection
It was a great overall dinning experience.
We got the tasting menu and it was exceptional.
Service was a very attentive, but maybe a little pretentious.
The star of the show was the wine we chose. Most of the wine list was outrageously over priced. We picked the Emilio Moro Riera del Duero both because we like Tempranillo and because the price was only marked up by 200%. A modest increase here. The wine was amazing. It complemented every course but desert.
(Just to be clear, I don’t mind spending money on a good bottle of wine, but I perscribe to the Josh Wesson school of thought. Price alone does not determin quality and with so many great wines out there you don’t need to spend big to get larger rewards)
Great experience at Gwen! Highly recommend!
Service was terrible. After 20 minutes of no eye contact with our waiter, I actually had to clap my hands to get his attention or anyone else for that matter just to get our check. Our meal was finished 30 minutes prior. Food was very good. Steak perfectly cooked. But other places can do that too with better service.
Staff was great. Very friendly and informative. Chef Stone makes a great dish. Can go wrong with anything on the menu. Great overall experience from the front of the house to the back.
Delicious meat(steak and charcuterie) And sides but very expensive and seriously overpriced wine list
Food and service are excellent. But they are certainly not bashful with the prices. Some of the prices are frankly absurd but if that’s not an issue then yes the restaurant is very good. But check the menu before going - people who aren’t big red meat eaters will have limited choices. Not none, but not many either.
The food was delicious. Getting a glass of wine was a production. Took forever to get a glass then for the wine to come up from the seller. When we wanted to order a bottle of wine we could not order from the server. We had to wait for the sommelier. It took forever for that to happen. But once it did he was very good. He recommended a delicious bottle of red.
I thought the food was very good once it arrived. The service was very slow initially. After half an hour sitting with only a glass of water I got up, found our waiter, and asked if we could order food. Once the order was placed the service was good.
This place is excellent. Wasn't crazy about the extra-aged ribeye on my last visit. But the pork chop more than made up for it this time.
Outstanding! A true, and rare, dining experience that you'll never forget - from the moment you walk in the door to your last bite. Absolutely expectional.
The food was amazing!! We loved the different cuts of steak and the different meat choices
Great atmosphere, great service, and fantastic food.
Beautiful space w exceptional cuisine
Brilliant so excited to go there as have watched Curtis Stone on Masterchef
What a lovely night. Nice entry way, loved the charcuterie counter as the entré to this night. The layout of the restaurant was perfect for half the guests, not so perfect for the other half. If you are a lady easily offended by big hunks of meat hanging from hooks in your presence while you dine, your would be well off choosing your seating with your back to the butcher shop!
We choose the 5 course meal. I had a rather disappointingly mediocre and very tiny martini to warm up ( the glass was shaped like one of those plastic tea cups from your sister's childhood), and was settling in to a perfect little charcuterie platter. The surprise delight of the night was the lavender salami!
Browned hazelnut butter sauteed giant scallop with baby mini tomato coulis was perfect. Really enjoyable.
The disappointment of the night? 30 day aged ribeye (a 70 dollar upgrade on the New York strip? Are you kidding me?) was luke warm rare (nobody asked us how we wanted it cooked), and wholely unsatisfying, especially considering the price. As a former chef and former meat cutter, I've had a hundred steaks all over the world that were better, for a third of the price!
Our waiter, Kurt, was wonderful. Truly attentive and knowledgeable and friendly.
But I guess that was it: a couple of drinks, a glass of wine each, and a $365.00 bill left me feeling robbed. At half the price I still would have been disappointed. At the price I paid, however, it left us both saying, "meh.". Unfortunate.
Not only does Curtis serve the best beef in Los Angeles, his tasting menu plates are all obviously designed and prepared by a master. His flavors are distinct and delicious. All four of us were dazzled, again. He never disappoints.
9.5 out of 10 spectacular
Interesting restaurant very lovely overpriced
The 80 day dry aged is pure beauty and the lamb ribs melt off the bone
The food and service were outstanding.
I opted for the Gwen taste menu. This is a good way to taste the specialities of the restaurant.
I especially loved the starter, very refined, and packed with flavors and different textures.
However, I wish the portions were a bit smaller. Especially after the plate of charcuterie, it was so big so I wasn't really hungry for the main dish that followed. A shame because the beef was really tasty.
Half of the portion for the charcuterie plate and main dish would have been better to fully appreciate the meal.
We were happily celebrating my husband's birthday with a 9:30 PM dinner. When we arrived for our reservation, the hostess asked us to wait at the bar, though the restaurant seemed not too busy. 10 minutes later, we were later seated at the bar banquette, away from everyone else. Our waiter was tending to the main room, which is not his fault, but we felt a little forgotten at times. The food was wonderful. When I later learned our very small pours of $25/glass/x3 of wine actually cost $37 for the bottle retail, I must say I felt a little cheated. A full, proper glass of red would have been more appropriate for an establishment of this caliber. I can see by the other reviews that I'm not alone on that note.
We sat at the chef’s counter and really enjoyed the food and the action.
Everything was spot-on.
Delicious, thoughtfully prepared food.
It was a great experience to dine at Gwen. My fiancee are what some call foodies, and we can tell that both the food and service were great at Gwen. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have some quality time
Gwen has been on my list since it opened, but it unfortunately greatly underwhelmed. We did the tasting menu and the food was either not that good or my expectations were too high. The best dish was the scallops, but everything else was mediocre. The charcuterie was uninspiring and did not include anything special. The pasta was fairly bland and the duck, the last dish, was undercooked and one of the worst I’ve had in LA. Also, the wine list (by the glass) was greatly overpriced and the selection could have been better. The bottle selection was better, but I wanted to course the meal with wine (no pairing option) so I went the glass route. Overall, Gwen is not worth the hefty price tag and I’d take my money to a dozen different restaurants instead.
This was not our first time at Gwen and it was nice they remembered my husband's allergies. That said, it changed our plans to have the tasting menu because a few of the dishes contained food he could not eat. We ordered from the ala carte selections and the food was amazing as usual. We had the Lobster Roll, a house salad, Steak Tartare, and then we split a NY Steak with creamed leeks and duck fat fries. All of it better than the next. Beautiful presentation, love the team service. We also had the wine steward help us select a white wine - a NZ Sauv Blanc and French Burgundy to pair by the glass with our meals. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. My only nit pick, is that we were seated and a large party of 8 came in with an 18 month old who sat next to us. I love children but I prefer to eat a special meal as adult only so I will make that request next time.
Beautiful art deco space. Attentive service. Exceptional food. Great wine list
Incredible experience and one of be best steaks I’ve had.
I went back to Gwen after almost a yer. Previously we tried tasting menu and this time we ordered several plates. Unfortunately not too impressed with the food this time specifically taking in to consideration the price.
This restaurant is not for anyone with food allergies. I was very clear that I was dairy-free, and that I would be fine with the Tasting Menu. This was not the case, and was very ill for several days.
Food, service, atmosphere could not have been better. Everything was high quality with friendly and interested servers. We absolutely were not rushed & Chef Stone us himself! Definitely a spot to return too. Oh, and free champagne on Sunday’s in August!
I initially was really enjoying the ambiance, food and service. I ordered a cocktail and when I asked the server a wine recommendation for dinner he recommended a Rose. However, when I got my bill I discovered it was $32 for the small glass . The server never alluded to the price of it which I thought felt deceptive considering they tack on an automatic 18% gratuity. My daughter and I enjoyed our food but I’m the end I felt duped.
