    We had a 10:30 PM reservation, we drove to the restaurant and it was closed, wow! A call would have been very kind especially when you require a credit card for the reservation.

    Loved the ambiance and service was great. The only reason I would rate the food 4 out of 5 stars was the restaurant was out of shrimp and lobster which meant multiple menu options weren’t available. But what I did order was delicious, and I will be back.

    The food is perfect, but they don’t have nothing to drink besides soft drinks. They should let us know.

    Kai’s Table is an ultimate experience. I love this restaurant for several reasons, spot on cuisine, black owned, great local, excellent ambiance and a total vibe! The owner Kia is one of the coolest most down to earth individuals and he has done an amazing job creating the ultimate eating experience for his guest. I would recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly, it’s definitely on my top 5 places to eat in Los Angeles.

    I was excited to try out this restaurant as it is Black owned and in a great location! My father in law was in town for the weekend from Chicago and we wanted to show him a good time for his last night. However, we left less than enthused and by the end of the night everyone who ate had the bubbly guts and runny stool after eating. So honestly the consensus was we won’t be returning. Pros: Nice staff, great ambiance (the decor was beautiful), good music, clean bathroom Cons: Overpriced mimosas with barely any champagne (maybe consider separating the champagne and orange juice so people can pour their own mimosa), food was okay (nothing to write home about), brunch all day on Sundays with no option for dinner menu (a simple heads up from the waitress when we walked in vs 30 minutes into us sitting there and preparing to order would have been helpful)

    I hosted a dinner for colleagues in town for a conference. The owner and his team provided the best experience possible for my guests. The food and beverages came out in a timely fashion! Everything was DELICIOUS- right temperature, flavorful, excellent and appetizing presentation, and great options for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Vibe is great and staff is attentive. It is a gem and must visit when downtown LA!

    The service was great, our waiter was a man who was so patient, friendly, understanding, provided excellent customer service. We were in awe of the service, the ambiance, and how great the food was. Would definitely recommend it to everyone. Great music and great vibes. If you want a place where you can go on a date or just link with a couple of friends, that is definitely the go to spot 🤍

    My friend enjoyed the Jamaican Oxtails and I found the Vegetable Curry with Chicken tasty. However, the portions seemed small for the price. Our dessert, the Red Velvet Cake made at a local bakery, was delicious. But the price for it was not. Kai’s Table is a good place to have a meal prior to an event at LA Live if you are willing to spend the money.

    HORRIBLE!!!! The first time I went to Kai’s Table I really enjoyed it so I thought I would go try again but instead for brunch this time. When we first arrived at the restaurant we were seated and given the QR code to the menu. Then an employee came and informed us that there are no servers or wait staff so we would have to go up the bar and place our orders ourselves. Very strange????? but whatever. Then we went up the bar to place our order by the bartender to took our order was confused about the menu and what comes along with some of the meals. Why have someone take orders that doesn’t even know the menu but ok. And once again still no liquor license???so only soft drinks are served. About 15 minutes later our food came we ordered steak and eggs (Good), pancakes (Arrived cold but good flavor, shrimp and grits (Good) and side orders of eggs (Arrived brown and completely brown), bacon, and breakfast potatoes ( Arrived undercooked and hard). Since there weren’t any actual servers or waiters we had to ask busboys for for all our condiments like butter, syrup, ketchup and etc. We asked them for all that stuff about 5 times but they still never brought it. Needless to say our experience was horrible from the food, to the terrible service, and to the extremely loud music. And not to mention why was there a 12% percent for a “Relief Charge” there should not be any kind of up charge especially since there were no waiters and the experience was horrible. Definitely won’t be coming back here.

    5 stars! Delicious. My only critique is that the coffee took 25 mins to arrive at the table. They didn’t have it brewed and prepared beforehand. Loved it and plan to return very soon! Thank you Kai!!!

    This was my 5th time coming here. I live the ambiance and love the dj on the weekend.. but for the food to be so pricey and not so tasty.. it's not OK.. my grits were cold and my French toast was soggy.. this more than likely will be my last time attending.. unless I just come for a drink and to listen to music.

    No alcohol is huge. I want to take a group of girlfriends here for a birthday but they would go nuts if there was no alcohol. The food was great. Use a better cut of beef for the bolognese and carne Asada tacos. Please. Otherwise both dishes were very very good.

    Food was really great; service was friendly. Suspended liquor license shut down the bar, which happens. But they had only 3 types of soda to offer. Music was SO loud and we were the only ones there. But they turned it down when we asked. Would return for the food.

    Made a reservation and on the way the server informed us they weren’t serving hookah. We get to the restaurant and are informed they weren’t serving alcohol. I wish they could’ve posted this info on their social media to avoid people driving long periods of time. The server we had was very nice and the restaurant itself was nice. Just an unfortunate experience

    The restaurant did not uphold my reservation, tried to sit my party on the dark out of sight patio next to the utility closet and the chef was not able to accommodate us. We ended up finding another restaurant. Would never go to or suggest this restaurant.

    Kai’s TableResponded on August 29, 2022Sorry, you had a tough experience and I am pleased to hear you found another place to go. It sounds like the restaurant actually held up your reservations and tried to seat your party even after coming late to an already pushed-back reservation. You probably also asked to do hookah since they sat you on the side patio. That's the only area we can accommodate parties with over 4 people who want to do hookah. Thank you for your review and hope you find better experiences elsewhere.

    For the price of the food it was not worth it. Food was terrible!!! We were the only people in the restaurant and it still took us a hour and 30 minutes to receive. Very small menu the only thing that was worth it was the drinks. Service was awful. Just a bad experience overall.

    We were there to celebrate my husbands 50th Birthday! The food was amazing. Kai came out a couple times to check on our table and talk to us. When we got there we had just missed the Sunday Brunch menu and my husband wanted the shrimp and grits. Kai had the kitchen prepare the item even though it was pass the time. I had the short ribs, SOOOO GOOD and tender! We had an amazing experience and will go back soon!

    Had great service there on my previous trip. I guess since it was BET Weekend the regular customer was not important. Therefore I’ve made the decision that now Kai’s Table will no longer be on my dine out list. My money spends just like the next person and I have choices.

    Kai’s TableResponded on June 30, 2022Good Evening, Yes your money spends like everyone else's. I see that you didn't explain that we had a private event with over 100 people the day you came. Also that we were closed to the public but still tried to accommodate. Thank you for visiting Kai's Table and we hope you find what you are looking for.
