Lovely setting. We sat indoors as it was our choice that evening. The outdoor terrace is always delightful. Four of us fined and none chose an identical meal. All diners were very happy with the food. Service was excellent. French bistro style dining seems to be makings come back in LA, but Little Next Door has been doing a lovely job for many years.

My wife and I enjoyed our Valentine’s Day one day late in order to avoid the crowds and we chose Little Next Door. It was a pleasurable experience and look forward to our next visit.

The service, excellent.
We went for Valentines and had the option to take the pre-fix menu or not. We chose to explore the menu and asked to try a dish on the pre-fix which was ok to do.
The food, delicious.
Just the right amount of herbs and spices.
Nicoise
Salmon with quinoa
Filet mignon with bone marrow
Baguette with olive oil and balsamic vinegar with herbs
All, simply amazing.

We ordered off the pre-fixe menu which was delightful--though I must admit the Beef Burgundy was a little dry and not as flavorful as we had hoped. The burrata prosciutto and moule frites, however were phenomenal, as were the two desserts (the cheesecake and a chocolate eclair). The service, however, was slow and the waiter forgot after the second course that we had ordered pre fixe

I had hoped to pace myself so as to only drink one glass of wine, but after twenty minutes of waiting between courses, I ended up finishing my first glass ... and, as if right on cue, the second course arrived just a few minutes after that. So it was either order another glass of the red bordeaux (which was tasty, yes), or eat my meal sans-wine, which seems to really miss the point of enjoying a night out, no? So, naturally, we ordered a second round, but that was certainly not the intention.

So ... the food was good (especially for a 40/pp pre fixe three course meal), the wine was delightful, the ambiance sublime, but the waitstaff leaves something to be desired. But perhaps they're just emulating that Parisienne "charm."

A local gem serving real French food, Little Next Door is hardly the "little sister" of the Little Door (next door). With robust flavors, fresh ingredients, a terrific wine list, the Little Next Door has a pervasive high cuisine/uber Boheme feel that makes it a perfect special place for friends to meet. Reasonably priced for what it is, with a diverse menu ranging from oysters to steak frites, chèvre salad to soufflé's, if you can salivate for it, they've got it.
Intimate without being too "romantic," LND works for dates, or friends, or even work places. Rather it is an ambient in/out kind of restaurant that morphs to the moment. Factor in delicious French classics prepared with a strong sense of home cooking, and you've got the kind of insider pick that is go-to for whatever occasion you're rocking,

It was my Mom’s 75th birthday and my sister and I wanted to take her out to a nice place that wasn’t too crazy pricey. This place was a great choice! The ambience is great. Really good lighting and tasteful decor. The food was delicious! My only gripe is with the waiter. He was French and kind of rude. We all kind of laughed it off, but he would turn away from us and walk away before we would even finish our last sentence. He seemed a bit condescending too.

We love The Little Next Door and I love their mussels, but this time, they were tough and the sauce had very little taste. Not sure what happened, as they have always been succulent before. I think I'll order something else next time. The beet and arugula salad was lovely, and I know our guest loved her duck confit entrée as well as the merguez.

What a lovely outdoor patio and plenty of indoor seating. The stools were high up with fur lining for our backs. The bloody mary was super vibrant. The waffle was tasty with fresh fruit and yummy whipped cream, grilled to the perfect texture. I love anything with truffle, so the fries were scrumptious. We also shared the beet salad and french onion soup, all a delight. Our waitress was an attentive french lady, whose comforting, beautiful character added to the experience. Grateful for the valet directly in front, as it was impossible to find parking on a Saturday.

Everything was just ok - nothing special. The food was mediocre.... not bad, just mediocre. Service was mediocre as well. The best thing going for it is the ambiance.... would be better to just come for a drink.

Little Next Door is one of our neighborhood go-to restaurants. When you live in the neighborhood of Third, Fairfax, Beverly, Farmers Market, and The Grove, you are blessed with so many dining choices. Restaurants must be at their very best to compete for our money. Little Next Door is usually a good choice. Service can be hit-and-miss depending upon which server you get. Some are more efficient and friendlier than others. Doesn’t matter, really. You’ll enjoy your meal.

My new favorite spot in LA. So happy to have tried it! I’m telling all of my friends. I ordered the Croque Madame, firngerling potatoes, and the breakfast basket to share. The portions were more than enough to share. Our waitress was the sweetest French woman that just made the overall experience that much better. 10 out of 10, would recommend!

The food was great and we will be returning to the restaurant as well as recommend it to other people, despite the pour service from our server who appeared to be very disengaged from the start. Also, he brought the wrong beer and did not apologize for that even though he did realized he did not bring the beer that was ordered, moreover did not asked whether we wound like to have any bread while we would be waiting. We saw that that was an option observing the other servers at a table closed by. Overall the server seemed to be doing the bare minimum, so that was unfortunately reflected in our tip. It’s been the first time ever that we tipped as low as we did
