Hock+Hoof is quintessential L.A. cuisine. Our food and drinks are inspired by the city we live in and love. Los Angeles is a melting pot of different cultures. It is a place that people flock to from near and far to realize their dreams and to be themselves, unapologetically; a place where nostalgic culinary traditions immigrate and breathe new life thanks to cutting-edge techniques and the availability of world-class produce unique to this sun-drenched city. L.A. cuisine is bold, diverse, and, most importantly, delicious. At Hock+Hoof, we embody this spirit by taking classic dishes from around the globe, with an emphasis on carnivorous delights and Asian flavors, and reimagine them using French culinary techniques to create innovative and artistic dishes.

Service was not good on evening of 2/22. Food was mediocre and flavors were odd in pork toro, some noodles, and the duck breast.

Our server was super friendly and courteous, for that alone I would repeat. This is a new joint so I wasn’t expecting the food to be all that, however it was not bad - pretty good actually! The bone in ribeye was terrific, the burrata is always a safe choice but add Asian pears and honey and you got a winner!!

I was impressed. As a meat heavy restaurant, Hock & Hoof had some great vegetarian options. Every dish we had was thoughtfully presented and delicious. We also had some great wine. Our server/bartender was very engaging and helpful. Overall, a really great experience and I'll be happy to go back soon!

There's been a little mixed up with our reservation. Although we were treated badly by one of the server who greeted us when the table we reserved wasn't available, the manager and the server who served our table were sincere and worked with us. They are apologetic and gave us a round of free drinks for the extra 35 minutes we waited The food is excellent and delicious.

I ordered the following items:

Clam Toast: Best item we ordered. Brioche bread with Parmesan cheese. Clams and clam chowder smothered on top. Amazing.

Beef Nigiri: Not good. Red paste covered all the beef flavor. Not worth the value.

Mushroom Rice Cakes: Very tasty dish but overly salty. It comes with Korean style rice cakes and a variety of mushrooms in a thick red sauce.

Bone Marrow: Tasty bone marrow comes with unique green onion crepe to lather it on.

Overall, some great dishes minus the Asian items we ordered. Which made our meal only 2/4 on items we'd order again. I would come back but just not order any of the Asian based dishes.

My friend and I tried the DineLA menu.

We thought the dishes we chose were okay. Mixed spring vegetables were good. The Cod battered in tempura, beef tongue, clam chowder on bread and fry bread with chicken liver were okay. We did not like the dessert.

Our main server was friendly and attentive. There was a weird lull where I think our server was on break because we waited for about 25 minutes before I waved down a different server to clear our dishes. I then had to wave down a third server about the dessert.

The air ventilation is horrible. You walk out of the restaurant smelling like you have been to a Korean BBQ.

We were running late for our reservation at 6pm. We arrived at 6:30 and we were the second table being seated. I was a little concerned as to why it was so dead on a Friday evening; DON'T BE! It started filling up after 7pm.
The menu seemed to be a little, shall I say fresh with many vegetarian options. Good for my wife who is a Pescatarian, but I'm more a meat guy. However, there were plenty of meat items, but it's a sharing style restaurant. There was bone marrow and some other good meat items, but I was stuck sharing. We ordered the burrata w/Asian pears, fall vegetables, cod with tempura batter and yes a hamburger! (With waffle fries).
I'm embarrassed to say that the burrata and the vegetables were fantastic and filling; a must! The cod was actually the restaurant's interpretation of fish and chips, but much better and more filling. Hamburger, worth going just for that. It was cooked medium but it was softer in texture than most and hit the spot. Waffle fries, you can figure that out for yourself.
No hard liquor, just beer and wine. I preferred a cocktail of harder liquor, but the food made up for that. Very industrial decorated but with a warm feeling. Service was very pleasant, attentive and fast.
All in all a MUST go! Prices are very reasonable and affordable. Food is great. One thing, don't go too far past the restaurant to park because you'll have to circle back and that's 10 minutes, I don't know much about that but someone driving my car did that.

What an incredible surprise, the beef tongue is otherworldly. The service made the evening. The staff genuinely care and it shows.

Food was outstanding...the chairs at the table not so much. Tucked in just past the Alexandria Hotel, parking lots not expensive. Limited street parking. Casual ambiance belies the level of the food and its presentation.

I couldn’t agree with the taste of food here. I understand that Chef or Owner is trying to be creative, but your creativity needs taste to support. If you’re just trying to get a drink here, you’ll be fine. But if you’re trying to have some delicious food, go somewhere else.

A brand new spot in DTLA focusing on rich dishes for carnivores. I am a vegetarian and I still found nice food to eat. Lighting was a bit bright and there was no discernible music which is better than bad music but it would have been nice to have some tailored tunes to suit the laidback vibe. Service was excellent and the Chef is on top of her game.
