The service was slow. They were understaffed and it made the experience unfavorable. We were seated immediately but it took our server 10-15 minutes to even come to our table.

It was really cool. Our first time and we really enjoyed everything. From being greeted to seated to served. It was all quick. Also, I like how the server doesn’t linger or KEEP coming by. She came just enough to our liking. And the food was DELICIOUS! We’ll definitely be back!!

Thanks for a GREAT 1st visit!

Really enjoyed dining here with my daughter before a concert at The Greek.
The service was great. The food was super flavorful and creative. The ambiance was fun although it was early so we didn't really get to enjoy it as much as we would have liked. Looks like a very fun scene.
I would definitely go back again when I'm in the neighborhood.

Hyperion Public is a great neighborhood spot with outdoor seating. The best thing about the place is hands down the blueberry wings. I almost regret sharing them, they were so divine! Fun creative food and drink menu overall. Would go back if in the Los Feliz / Silverlake area.

I keep hoping this place will change but the kitchen is a disaster each and every time I’ve tried it.
I checked in on Facebook and 2 different friends immediately asked about service and the kitchen or said they would never go again because of the kitchen... it’s not a one off, might be time to start fresh with the kitchen staff before people stop trying it again to see if it’s changed.
Our waitress was excellent but food was over an hour at a slow lunch.

We came here for happy hour. The food took some time coming because I believe they were short staffed. However we loved the appetizers (got the tacos and drinks). Reasonable price, casual ambiance make it a great place for a friends get together.

The atmosphere of the restaurant when I first walked in was welcoming and energetic! I was there for my first Valentines date and it was quite the experience. First, the host/server was attentive and prompt. We placed our order after a few minute with the perfect amount of time to browse and decide. We started with the F Yeah Fries which were F@$king amazing!! So flavorful and filling. We next moved onto our entrees of the Salmon and the Shrimp and Grits, of which the latter was my favorite with just a touch of heat from the andouille sausage and the grits were perfectly poached! Lastly we were treated to a complimentary chocolate mousse which was a perfect finish to the evening!! Thanks for making this a great night for both of us and I look forward to returning soon!!

2nd time here and it did not disappoint. Tried a couple new dishes tonight: the panko fried chicken wings for happy hour, the mac n cheese, and the Brussel sprout salad with chicken. Each dish was amazing comfort food and would order them again. There are still many other options to try so will continue moving our way down the menu. The service was good and the atmosphere is very low key. Happy hour is 4-7, with a nice selection of drinks and nibbles to choose from so definitely recommend taking advantage of this. We sat in the front restaurant but there is a cool bar up a few stairs behind it - comfy couches, multiple TVs and a laid back atmosphere - may try this next time.

I’ve been wanting to come here for awhile and it didn’t disappoint! I went on a Wednesday night for dinner in the restaurant portion. It was relatively empty, not too noisy and service was good. I can’t say enough about the food! Lots of great options on the menu.... I ended up choosing the truffle Mac and cheese and garlicky beans it was delicious... I will definitely be going back to try other menu options !

We were told that we have to wait fir an hr as their kitchen is back up ! After waiting for an hr we were told that maybe another 30 to 40 minutes wait as there are 20 people ahead of us ! After editing for another 30 minutes we were told that it should be coming any time then another waitress comes and we were told maybe around 30-40 more minutes !!!
I think we waited enough !! What a sad experience !! They should have not entertained client if they have a problem in the kitchen !!

This has been on my list for sometime so had a fiend in town and tried it on Saturday evening. Menu has a lot of variety from healthy to super comfort food (the pretzel was awesome - also enjoyed the shrimp and grits). You could have a burger or a nice piece of fish and the service was quite good. Valet service right past the restaurant - was $6 and very convenient. Will be back to continue my way down the menu as there are so many yummy items to choose from.

A little disappointed because Hyperion did not look like the photos. I had a party of four with reservations for a 11:30 brunch.

From the photos, I assumed that the establishment would be brightly lit, but it was pretty dark inside. They used very low lit lamps and the room that was open faces east, so not a lot of light came it.

Food was alright. The menu has changed since. They no longer have the various options of bottomless mimosas or croque madames.. which were highlights onto why I booked this place. My party ordered a deluxe breakfast sandwich, their burger, chicken sandwich, saucy fries and fried avocado. Other than the burger, I tried everything mentioned and the food was just alright. The brioche buns we're overkill and was too much for the breakfast sandwich. The chicken in the chicken sandwich was burnt. The avocado fries, although pretty good, were too small for it's price. And the fries were pretty much dressed in cheese whizz.

Though food and ambiance we're not it's finest, the customer service was great. The two staffed were amazingly friendly. One had confirmed that we did have a reservation and informed us how open table works. I had not checked in with them and was told by the server that I should check-in or OT would restrict my acct if I made it a habit (in a polite way.)

Service was not great except the Indian bartender. She was precise, attentive, and interactive. Thank you!
My recommendations would be to use this place for a quick drink and bite before heading somewhere else.

Overall great place it's friendly people and good food. One problem was folks seated at the open air tables were smoking and that flowed back into where the hostess wanted to seat us. When we mentioned the restaurant had a smoking deck, there was attitude despite the place being uncrowded. The lounge was open and great but dark. Cocktail was light for an old fashioned. And yet the service in the lounge was fantastic and warm. The vegan options were appreciated and good. So only a 1 star down grade.

Service was okay. Food was okay, not great. Pretty slow, overly priced, crammed quarters. Ordered drinks right away but didn’t get them until our entrées arrived. Was told they were Using a new system and that’s why it was taking so long, Completely understand. Regardless of that we were definitely left unattended for much longer than acceptable. Employees were nice, Seems like a management issue. Will most likely not return or recommend.

Their appetizer selection was unique and hard to make a choice! My next visit I think I'd stick with a variety of app's - definitely the highlight. The best part of the meal was the chicken wings with a fantastic crust (gluten free) and blueberry sauce. In understand the avocado fries were great as well but I could not try them since they were panko crusted. They had a wide variety of cocktails and it sounded like they have some fun weekly events (margarita night etc.) which I would definitely check out if I lived in the area. We loved our server - super friendly and helpful with the menu and bar choices.

We made reservations for 5:30pm. We were seated right away for our party of 6. However we waited 20 to 30 minutes for our food with two young kids in tow. There were only two other visible groups in our dining area that sat down after us. They got they're food before us. My son didn't like the taste of his kid hamburgers, the regular wings were just OK and the lettuce wraps were average. Too bad since this place is walking distance from my mom's house.

Decided to dine at the Silver lake location before a concert at the Greek Theatre. I had a reservation but arrived 30 minutes early and was seated right away. My party ordered the Hyperion Burger, Crispy Shrimp Taco's and The Cali , we also shared the Avocado Fries. We didn't have to wait long for our order our entrée s came 15-20 min. after our appetizer. The presentation of the food was excellent and we were all very pleased with our order. Our server was great. Very attentive. The atmosphere was good but the place is rather small and the tables are placed close together. Street parking is very limited so I would valet park or take Uber. I would definitely eat here again.
