    Soggy bun on all 4 burgers. So not worth the price: over $200 for 4 hamburgers, beer and appetizers. Go to Apple Pan or Palisades Garden if you want a good hamburger.

    I had never been to Hanks and they had a wonderful brunch with great people watching outside on their patio. Unfortunately there were 4 kids screaming at the top of their lungs and their parents never told them to stop. Not the restaurants fault at all! But did not make for a great brunch until the people left. I would definitely go back to Hanks!!

    We love to get the double diamond burger, onion rings and dirty vodka martini whenever we go to Hank’s. This time we also tried the new menu appetizer, recommended by the waiter- artichoke cheese dip. It honestly was THE best one I have ever tasted. I’m not much one for dips, but my husband likes them. We both were in heaven and would highly recommend! Delish! 😋

    Food was delicious. We had the chicken and salmon which both were perfectly cooked and well paired with veggies. Good wine selection and great to sit outside with the heat lamps. Service was very good and a small band playing nearby was a really nice addition. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

    Neighborhood gem: tasty food in a picturesque setting. The expanded patio is especially nice. I had the diamond double burger, which is one of the specials, along with onion rings, and my companion had a Caesar salad with chicken. Everything was excellent. It is pricey, but, after all, it is the Pacific Palisades.

    The food was good. The ribs were a hit with our guest and a very generous portion, however, there were no wet wipes or hot wet cloth to wipe hands with. I highly recommend this. Even a bowl of hot water with lemon would be helpful. The waiter forgot to bring the dessert we ordered which was a chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. He didn't charge us for it either but it was disappointing not to receive it. We love the atmosphere and sitting outside.

    Enjoyed the food-delicious grilled balsamic onions on the burger which was cooked perfectly. Excellent fries and onion rings. Kale salad had too much kale and not enough of the other ingredients!! Tuna melt only had cheese on one half. The service was lousy. Difficult to get our water glasses refilled (and it was quite a hot day). When the iced tea was refilled, it was brought to the table with NO ice!! Waitresses certainly need lots of training as only very few tables were occupied!

    So disappointed! We have been to Hanks practically once a week since it opened but that will change! They took great food and ruined it! Their now California burger which used to be great is now 4 ounces! You can barely find it on the bun. Their onion rings are now curls. While we were there I notice many plates were being returned to the kitchen. Very sad but I guess they couldn’t handle success!

    There were four in our party and we all agreed that the menu is limited for dinner. The service was very good and the location is exceptional. We all ordered sandwiches and found a lot of bread, but what was supposed to be on the inside was lacking. We also shared a Caesar salad which was good.

    What a disappointment. There were 3 of us and we all ordered the same thing--a Hank's Burger: one medium rare, one rare and one medium. When served, the orders were all wrong, plus the fries were cold. And the restaurant was not even busy. The waiter was very apologetic and did his best to straighten things out, and gave us each a scope of ice cream for dessert. Not likely to want to come back real soon.
