Had the Caesar salad with chicken. The chicken was dry. I don’t like to send things back so I just ate it. Cocktails were good and of course the macaroons were delicious. Service was great as well.

Lovely brunch with my daughter. Good food. I had chicken club & my daughter had raspberry French toast.
I had chocolat chaud Ladurée which had no coffee unfortunately so I had an espresso too. She had rose latte. We tried the ispahan. Everything was good. Ordered macarons & pastries to go. Very reasonably priced & worth a try. Will go again.

It was definitely underwhelming and very disappointing.

We came specifically to have an afternoon tea, which turned to have been discontinued. Nowhere on the website nor on open table indicated that.

If it wasn’t for the waitress who was super nice, I would have left grudgingly.

With such a. Beautiful inside decor it’s a shame covid reduces everything to outdoor dining but alas you ha e the beauty of the grove to bask in and the trees providing natural shade and occasional fall of twigs and leaves onto your table. The dishes at laduree are so cute I want to buy them for my home we all got sandwiches and tea I wish the menu has more to choose from but I understand why they might be limited at the moment

They called us at 10:25am to revoke our reservation due to a private party. When we got there a party of two was being served brunch from a server like cheap slaves yet we weren’t invited. The brand is dead.

Since moving to Hollywood 2 years ago, I’ve been coming to LaDuree. It’s always been fantastic. Yesterday was no exception, my son’s friend had flown in for his birthday, so we visited for brunch. The service was impeccable, the Eggs Benedict was amazing! You have to taste the rolls they serve the eggs on, soft and flavorful, the sauce incredible. The latte’s were perfect and the coffee is served with whipped cream, delightful. When you visit Hollywood, get to the Grove and sit by the water, and taste the most delicious macaroons ever, and sip mimosas and fall into dreamland.
Just love this place...

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.

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!

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.
