Amazing! Loved the longanissa sandwich and all the dishes really.
I expected more because everybody was saying that it is not easy to reserve which means there must he something extraordinary! Less food choices
Chef Charles Olalia has created an outstanding dining destination for Los Angeles. With seasonal, Filipino-inspired dishes that truly capture the breadth and depth of this remarkable cuisine, a gorgeous dining area, AND a killer cocktail menu, this restaurant is a winner on all fronts. Thank you for this sparkling addition to the Silverlake dining scene. We'll be back -- we're already craving that sizzling sisig!
Service and food are outstanding a little bit expensive
Good tasting, well prepared and presented. However it's not quite in the comfort food range or the gourmet if you're used to Filipino food. Can say service is excellent, and the servers and Manager are eager to make sure you enjoy the experience.
Love the food and the laid back atmosphere. Happy hour is great too. Second time and it does not disappoint. Street parking is easy.
I came with four friends who had never had filipino food before, and the menu did a good job having all the classic filipino dishes. Everyone enjoyed the food, including myself. The BEST longanisa i've had in life. I would come back just for that and to try the arroz caldo.
First time coming here. Parking is hard to find. Spent 15-20 minutes circling the neighborhood and finally found one. This is Filipino fusion cuisine. We ordered the saffron garlic rice (delicious), coconut & rice pancakes (yummm), adobo, sizzling sisig (addicting) and sizzling mushroom & tofu. Disappointed they didn’t have the tapa. We also ordered a bottle of mimosa with grapefruit juice. Overall, good flavors and
excellent customer service. Water and coffee were constantly refilled. Will definitely go back for dinner.
Ma'am Sir was a really enjoyable experience and did a very good job of adding a creative twist to traditional Filipino dishes while maintaining the authenticity of the flavors. I also appreciated that Filipino beers (San Miguel and Red Horse) were being served and reminded me of times I've spent with my family in the Philippines. So I am very pleased that Chef Olalia really did Filipino cuisine justice and showcased how vibrant and homey out food is! The decor and ambiance is gorgeous such that its both casual enough for a night out with friends or classy enough for a special occasion, and I appreciated the egg-looking lights on the wall. Personally, there are tons of other delicious mom-and-pop Filipino restaurants in neighboring areas that are much more affordable that I would go to more regularly. Pero on the occasion that I'd want to bring a friend or family to a Filipino restaurant where you can get more of a fine dining experience, Ma'amSir would be the first place I'd go.
Been wanting to check this place out for the longest! They did Filipino Food right, Compliments to the Chef!
Favorites were the Baked Pork Belly, Kate-Kare & Sisig.
Tasty food in a prime Los Feliz location but the restaurant design feels impersonal and unfocused, like a Dwell magazine explosion.
The space is not intimate, with soaring bow-truss ceilings and general bright lighting; and a lack of interior partitions making the whole restaurant exposed from all sides. The banquettes along the walls cram people together around a smallish table which does not work so well for a small plates / share restaurant. The vibe already feels dated Silverlake 2017 era.
Its a shame since the food is really delicious!
Based on the food we experienced at Rice Bar I had higher expectations for Ma’am Sir. The food did not live up to what was expected.
Intriguing and entertaining. Had the pork belly. A nice slab of pork belly really nicely prepared. I'm going back.
My wife and friends enjoyed our meal even though it was not as authentic a Philippine restaurant as we thought. The oysters were quite good. If you like to try different Philippine dishes then this is a place to try.
We had pica pica to have a better idea of the flavors of the menu. Some dishes like the turon would remind me of the same food you'd get in Pampanga. We were a bit surprised with the avocado pan de sal as it was a sandwich, avocado slices in a sweet pan de sal bun. But it was good anyway. The lumpia had a more crispy and lower key flavor than I'm used to. The desserts were pretty good. The flan had a different take with cream on top. The banana bibingka was more of a calamay, which still was pretty good. Overall, we enjoyed our lunch and would return when we're in the area.
BTW, the service was excellent. The hostess accommodated our early arrival, driving from NorCal had its own uncertainties. The wait staff was very responsive and friendly. Thanks to the chef for the extra order of turon.
although the restaurant's ambiance and decoration were quite impressive; the food did not match the expectation. It was a failed attempt to do "westernize" Filipino food; presentation was not appetizing and the umami flavors are gone :( We were more expecting "feel home/comfort" food in a small plate but unfortunately neither convinced us. We practically order the whole menu but except for the pan de sal, none was quite to our palate.
We’ve been twice now, once for Fathers Day and now for a friends’ bday. Its amazing that Filipino food hasn’t taken off more.
Staff is always great, even allowing us to bring our baby. It’s not necessarily a kid friendly restaurant, but they don’t Baby-shame which is a relief for young parents who don’t know better (like us).
Overall average. A little noisy. Chicken Adobo might as well been just chicken.
It was awesome and Robert the bar tender was superb with hospitality. Classy and great food. All the way home run!
Food was delicious. Modern spin yet some reminded me of my moms cooking. Beautifully cooked eggplant in the stir fry. Oxtail fell off the bone beautiful, scrumptious. Lumpia delightful surprise, usually not an uni fan. Loved the hangover fried rice.
Its overpriced. The quality of food needs to match prices. Shrimp lumpia did not have any stand out flavor and the vinegar did not either. Sisig for 18 and no rice, using ears and what not thats super over priced also. Almost everything over priced. For that price you should be using grass fed and pastured fed meats, showing what farm you got it from. Otherwise i can just get the same and better at a much cheaper place. I think the menu online needs to be updated because we were planning to get items within our budget originally and we came in and found that the menu was different. We spent dinner prices for sunday brunch and lunch. I would like to try the drinks and I might try other dishes but first impression was only ok with food.
the food was fantastic, a lot of flavors. I love the pan de sal bread, it has its own flavor which was on the sweet side. service was great as well. will definitely recommend to friends and family.
Very noisy interior. Service was excellent. Unfortunately the majority of the food we ordered was either too salty, too rich, or too much.
Wonderful place...but we were literally screaming over music & other diners!?! Otherwise, very cool vibe 7 great food :-)
Great food, nice spin to Filipino food !! Pork belly and Lumpia, my son was in absolute liking !!! Service was great!
Delicious and great environment! Amazing service as well. Definitely will be going back and trying more things on the menu
Food and service were very good. We particularly enjoyed the crab noodles and the eggplant. It's very noisy so hard to have a conversation.
The food was amazing. Being Filipino, I will always bias to my moms home cooking but this is a good start to expose the main stream to Filipino food that has been around for a long time.
My evening there with my daughter was truly disappointing. When the waitress brought us a glass of wine she toppled it on my daughter spilling the wine and breaking the glass. As they tried to clean up the mess I had to request a new table although the restaurant was 3/4 empty. They carried my beer to the new table then the waitress bumped the table spilling some beer which required a new round of clean up. We hoped the food would make up for these problems but we were wrong. The chicken adobo was dry and tasteless, the pork belly had a tasty lemongrass sauce but was also basically dry and tasteless, so I ordered more sauce to cover the poor taste. Our side order of broccoli was good, but when broccoli is the high point of the meal you know you have a problem. We were offered a complimentary dessert which was ok, but to top it off they charged us for the wine which was tossed on my daughter as well as for the replacement glass. This place is sooo overrated.
Definitely a place to go to try Filipino food with a twist. However, I find it pricey. I am Fil-Am so I know it food and I complained about the Cheese Puto because it was so hard not chewy but the Chef didn't think so. I'm a bigger fan of Chef Olalia's Ricebar in DTLA.
Filipino food with a twist so don't expect some old-school at home cooking. It was good but somewhat expensive. Great cocktails though and love the ambience!
Food was delicious and service was attentive. We like that this was a modern take on traditional Filipino dishes in a nicer setting than other similar restaurants. We’d go back just for the espresso flan!
it was our first time and good thing we found a parking spot right away. the place was really lovely. we ordered pork sisig and the crispy pork belly. pork sisig was a bit too peppery... but the crispy pork belly is the bomb!! highlight of our dinner was the banana bibingka with pandan whipped cream! it really is a must try! will definitely be back to try the other dishes there :)
Our server was great and had good recommendations. The food was excellent! The restaurant is attractive but extremely loud, it was hard to hear.
Incredibly stunning decor and ambiance. Great service. While I enjoyed some of the dishes, I felt the chicken adobo was undercooked (very pink/rubbery chicken). I also didn't care for the Kare Kare (very small portion, and mostly fatty pieces). I would go back to try some other dishes on their menu though.
We tried their loco moco and it was great. I miss Hawaii a lot. I am glad they offer this on their menu. We also tried their pancake with the coconut sauce and toasted Rice Krispies. Our bartender suggested it, it was lovely. We experimented with the dish and having the iced guava purée that’s been sitting in my friends drink and put it on top of the pancake and it was divine. The chef is great at creating this dish. It reminded me of “Puto” Rice flour cake from my trips to Manila. So that with thick coconut syrup and the iced purée guava melting on top of the pancake is AMAZING!!! The citrusness of the guava breaks up that milky coconut syrup on the fluffy cakes. Overall, our meal and experience was great. Congratulations, I hope to see more creative dishes with a Filipino Flair. It’s about time!!
Lechon pork belly and thier sisig is to die for!! Me and my friends from alaska went here for dinner and they loved it!
We loved this place-- we'll definitely be back!! We attended for a special occasion (my husband's bday). When servers realized they had accidentally forgotten to place a birthday candle on our ordered dessert, the staff immediately brought out two glasses of champagne to celebrate. Thank you for making the occasion so special!!!!
Authentic Filipino food in a family friendly setting. A real gem.
