I had read reviews previously to making my reservation and noticed a few remarks about the service but I didn’t let that stop me since it was still overall good reviews. I went with my son and I loved the service, the waitress was very attentive to our needs always having a smile and positive attitude. The food was great but the price wasn’t reasonable for such small portions. I would recommend to get pastries but for dinning in not so much unless u don’t have a budget and want to spend more for the atmosphere.

Very classic French nestling at the grove garden. Onion soup is a must ! Very delicious and not too salty

I was excited to see a Laduree in LA having lived in Paris for three years. We went and were a bit disappointed at the menu selection. I suspect they are trying to be appealing to local folks by having more california style foods (eg avocado toast) and vegan options. But we came for authentic French food and found that the croque monsieur was made with turkey ham!?!? I was really hoping for some real Parisian ham. The service was outstanding and we did take away some macaroons which were delicious and fresh. I hope they can make the restaurant food more authentic. The French restaurant in the Farmers Market just adjacent is more traditional. And, you can get Parisian hm at the butcher to take home!

Service was terrible took to long to get food, when food finally arrived it was cold. Prices were too high for the quality of food and service delivered.

My first and only poor rating for a restaurant on Open Table. With the exception of the French Onion soup, the food was tasteless and lukewarm to cold. The service was inattentive, even though the upstairs dining room was almost empty. The service was inattentive even when we raised it with our server. The decor is dated and needs replacement — all of the small tables upstairs are horribly unbalanced. Never again for lunch or dinner, especially at almost $200 for four.

They were out of the 2 appetizers we wanted to order (which is about half if their appetizers). They didn’t tell us until we went to order. They then put the items on our bill that they were out of.

food: was okay. I cannot say food was excellent but bakery and sweets are good!
service: some servers were friendly and others were not

really pretty garden style patio (no indoor seats for the restaurant customers) which was also pet friendly.

They closed the kitchen before our reservation, so food options were limited to beverages and pastries, which was disappointing. The pastries are delicious though. Service was okay, but cold and absent-minded. Luckily they have great ambience and a direct view of the Christmas Tree decorations during the holidays.

We didn’t even get to dine there because our interaction with the host was THAT terrible. We made a reservation for 8:30pm, and arrived early at 7:30pm, and instead of greeting us kindly he said, “oh are you the 8:30pm reservation? We’ve been so slow tonight we wanted to close early but we couldn’t because you made a late reservation”. I was so shocked I didn’t know what to say so I glanced at the menu and said we would go somewhere else. I used to work in the industry for years as a hostess, server and manager, so I get it, but really? Business is business. I would never allow an employee to say that to a customer.

Sat outside. It was very pleasant ...great people watching too.
Had salmon with cauliflower...it was excellent. Only complaint is the
small container they serve coffee in does not stay hot and when we went to
pour the remainder of the coffee it was ice coffee, not hot coffee.

Went to Ladure for the Grove tree lighting. Staff was very accommodating of large party with infant. Service was good despite such a busy evening. Fixed price menu did not accommodate teens who don't drink alcohol. Desserts were very good. They ran out of hot chocolate , with no appropriate substitute. which is rather unacceptable. OVerall, an nice experience if you are going for the busy tree lighting.

Sat outside, ambiance was nice and food was as expected. However, service was lacking - had to ask for water, waited 20+ min for a latte and had to re-order it. They switched servers mid-way through our meal without saying anything and we were delivered the wrong check (for another table). I'd come for desserts to go, but would not dine in again.

We were excited to go here. However we had a reservation for 11:15. We had a hard time finding parking so called that we would be late. We got there at 11:25, 10 minutes later, and they gave our table away anyway. They put a couple in a four person table. This was my daughters birthday brunch. They said it would be a 10 minute delay but after 20, we asked to have two tables pushed together to accommodate the 4 of us. We had a 12:30 facial reservation so pressed a bit for time. Why could they not have offered this sooner? Manager and employee were arguing several times during our meal Food was really good I have to say.

Food was decent. Service was lacking. Server dropped off our food without silverware and halfway through the meal began to ignore us. We had to wait 20+ min for our check and even had to ask a second person for it. Would only come in for desserts from the pick up counter.

It was good as usual but the outdoor tables were dirty and the chair pads were covered in old food. I was also charged $7 for a hot water refill on my tea. Not sure I’ll make visiting here again a priority.

When we arrived, was seated at a table and left there without being checked in on, given menus or water. We had to flag down the waiter to order, walk up to the desk to ask for our check and then walk the check up there because no one ever stopped by our table to help us in any way. Super overpriced for the food which was terrible. The sandwiches were gross, fries were cold, the pasta was also cold. The macarons were the best thing.

The outdoor seating was nice. The food was okay, not worth the high price tag. They also got our order wrong, they forgot to give us our finger sandwiches and mini pastries. We had to ask them for it.
