About

This restaurant is permanently closed. ink. is chef michael voltaggio’s first signature restaurant. alluding to the idea of permanence, ink. endeavors to create an indelible impression with flavor profiles that are inspired by the myriad of cultures that make up the city of los angeles. Thusly, he describes the food at ink. as “modern los angeles cuisine” and aspires to create an experience that will repurpose the term “fine dining” for angelenos.

Can't wait till the new location is open. One of the best meals I've had in a while. And the dessert was to die for.

The food was incredible. We had the smoked mozzarella, bucatini, short rib, and broccoli. I've never had anything like the smoked mozzarella before. Highly recommend. The service was very attentive and knowledgable of the menu.

The tables were too small for this kind of food sharing. I prefer to eat my food not to share with other people

Meal was excellent. The bar staff and wait staff were awesome. They serve the food family-style so for our party of three, our server recommended 3 apps, 2 entrees & 1 side. It was perfect - we left full & satisfied! Been a long time fan of Michael Voltaggio and ink. did not disappoint!

We did the dine LA deal and we each enjoyed everything. I got a little freaked out on the gnocchi bc of the inner texture and being pregnant but the mozzarella and steak were both EXCEPTIONAL. Amazing food adventure with service that doesn't disappoint!

Service excellent. Knowledgeable staff. Friendly if not sincere. E.g. GM never stopped by the table to ask how we were, we were served the wrong wine - but really overall, a nice night out with superb, amazing food with a front of house that has the impossible job of matching it.

Each dish out umami(d) the preceding entry.
Totally blew out tastebuds away to Saturn and back to earth.
Staff totally cared for each guest like favorite family members anticipating each desire before we even thought up.
Worth the drive from our part of the universe to the West side.
Chef Michael Volthggios in the open air kitchen really rock down the house. Finding excuses to return to his orbit as soon as we can.
Thank you INK for a monumental culinary experience.

The food was subpar and disappointing. The service was great, but the food was either bland or unappetizing.

Eating at ink. was a very special experience. Of course the food was excellent, that was to be expected, but I was truly in awe of watching the entire staff absolutely work their tails off. Every single person who was working at the restaurant were attentive and focused. Their attention to detail was noticed and truly appreciated.

Why did I wait so long to try this place!! My friend Giles mentioned that this was his favorite restaurant in LA so I decided to come here to check it out. I loved everything that was ordered, thought some items were a bit salty still delicious. Service was great, and was able to have made same day reservations. Definitely will be coming back.

Oysters- love the frozen sauce gave it a big kick
***Street Corn- amazing corn porridge goes well with the chip
Laughing bird Shrimp-can be a bit salty, has an interesting taste combination
***Egg Yolk gnocchi- pops in your mouth must get
Branzino-you have to crack the skin and get to the middle and texture with the sauce gave it a twist. Tucked it in the celeriac like a mini taco.
***Short Rib 8oz- super tender and juicy , how the hell did they make this!!
Beet bolognese- tasted like muffins
Brussels Sprouts- goes well with the sauce
***Apple caramel- super delicious, had fun cracking the frozen cream then working my way through.

The staff greet us before we even entered the restaurant. We had arrived early for our reservation (waiting for a friend) and we took a seat at the bar. We had a cocktail and after we were taken to our table as she arrived. Everyone was very polite, knowledgeable, and lively. I never needed to ask for a water refill, if I'd like another drink, for new silverware--anything. We ordered a bottle of wine, 3 starters, 3, mains, a side, and a dessert. Everything was beautifully presented, easy to eat, share, and tasted great. Nothing lacked salt or acid or fell short. When we arrived in LA we had a lot of mediocre meals at the start but thanks to ink. we ended on a very high note.

We dine at ink often and were disappointed by our most recent experience. The hostess and her male colleague, not sure his role, were rude and had an attitude for no particular reason right off the bat. We ordered a good amount of food and it all came out within 30-40 minutes completely overcrowding the table and our stomachs, which kind of spoiled the experience. We love the restaurant and will return to give it another chance. Hoping it was just an off night.
