    Sadly our dining experience fell quite short of what we had hoped for. I ordered the fish and chips substituting onion rings for the fries. Both fish and rings came to the table soggy.I had never been served that meal soggy before. And at $32 that is a big drag. The other three members of the party ordered burgers and they were all were disappointed Again at $27 per burger stating they would have been happier with a $5 in and out. The ambiance is pleasant enough outside on the patio there but struggling to hear the fellow across from me over the jazz band (which was good) took away a bit. Will not be rushing back for the food.

    Although the Jazz music is a nice touch, you can’t carry on a conversation when they play. The service was not on par with our typical experiences. We still love Hanks and will go back.

    There must be new management. Fabric Table cloths now replaced with cheap black and white plastic. They used to have good drinks, but now seem watered down. The food once was interesting but has gone to overpriced bland. My fish was dry and didn't taste fresh. Please get back on the ball. We like the space, but came to dine as well.

    Hank's was the perfect location for a leisurely lunch with a friend, visiting from out of the country. We initially wanted to try out Angelini's, but no reservations were to be had so we grabbed one at Hank's and made an afternoon of it. And to make our choice that much more delightful, we were given the perfect table to people watch those coming and going including the happenings across the way -- it was the perfect perch to while away the afternoon. Our waitress was that winning combination of attentive yet mindful of our conversation, also kindly bringing a bowl of fresh water for our canine companion. My friend and I toasted our good fortune with a glass of wine -- sharing one extra glass between us, thoughtfully presented by our waitress in a small carafe so that we could easily add to our original glasses at our leisure. My friend chose the tuna entree and I enjoyed the quinoa salad with protein add -- both were perfectly proportioned and delicious. We finished our meal off with an espresso. Perfection.

    Lovely outdoor setting! We had terrific service. Reuben sandwich was not as good as usual, the bread was not toasted and there was very little pastrami. FF and onion rings were very good as was the Cesar salad and tomato soup and grilled cheese.

    Hank's has a lovely outdoor dining area. In fact, every time I go there that is where I request to be seated. I have never been indoors although it looks nice. The evening I was there there was live music outdoors with a trio playing softly. The service here is great. The servers are very attentive and plentiful. The food has never disappointed in all the times I have eaten here. The burgers are the best--and so are the onion rings. It is a very comfortable place to be and the cool breeze is wonderful.

    First time trying this American Bar/Bistro. Food is burgers, salads pasta: standard American fare. We had burgers, fries, onion rings and shakes. The outdoor dining ambience is superb and the service excellent. The food is very good: top level mall restaurant/hotel level. Half of the tables had kids. The bill is punishingly expensive but you are paying for dining in Rick Caruso’s paradise, complete with ostentatiously patrolling cops and security who are never out of sight and ensure an experience free of LA’s urban charm.

    Normally a great place to go for a good Martini and I like the Ruben. This time Martini was good but the Ruben was smaller than usual and overcooked-it was not good. Too expensive for a bad Ruben-esp. in LA. I do like the staff and eating outside.

    I understand they were busy, since there was an event in town that day, but we waited 45 minutes for our food, and had to be at the event at a given time. My friend didn't even get to finish her food. Only once did our waiter come by to say our food was coming up (which it wasn't). He never offered to refill our drinks. We clearly were dressed for the event, so they should have known we were not just casually having lunch. I have NEVER not tipped, but I didn't this time, as I was so upset about our service. I'd say my turkey burger was mediocre and the side salad was just greens.

    The hamburgers were delicious but the short rib was frozen inside. I took my friend there to show off my city and the experience was suboptimal. Hopefully they can fix this because I really like the restaurant and have had great experience there

    We were hoping to discover good food. Ordered crab cakes first. The worst crab cakes we have ever had. We think they were possibly frozen although is there such a thing as frozen crab cakes? We absolutely love crab cakes but I was unable to take more than one bite, luckily my husband will eat anything…he has served our country so I know he will basically eat anything if hungry! The only other thing I will add is we probably should have stuck to a burger, I assume that would have been ok but we’ll never know since we’ll never go back! Btw, the crab cakes that were tiny cost about $36!

    Hanks is a new favorite, not only for the food (exceptional) and cocktails (creative and delicious) but the ambience and especially the live jazz made the experience a fabulous one! Plus, the hostess was delightful and all the waitstaff were terrific. As a longtime Palisadian, the atmosphere that Hanks has is just perfect. Making this a new tradition! Can’t wait to come back!

    The restaurant does not answer their phone. Outgoing message indicates open fails until 10pm. We showed up for our 9pm reservation. I went to check in and I was told they were closed. Not cool to show open reservation when you are closed.
