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.
Very salty, very sweet food under very loud music. I didn't enjoy the meal at all.
If you are craving for Filipino food then this is the place! No fusion BS. Just plain traditional quality Filipino food with good ambience.
Came in with no expectations and was very pleasantly surprised by the food. Family style/small plates style works very well. Lumpia, chili garlic shrimp, and chicken adobo were all amazing!
Surprisingly louder than expected. Loved the decor and the bar was welcoming. Being Filipina all the flavors were familiar, but a tad more elevated and of course more pricey than your typical Filipino restaurant. Would come again to introduce someone who’s never had Filipino food
I’m not a filipino and this time I enjoy eating filipino food without tv on the wall playing drama and all the food coming with decent presentation and tasty! Servers are friendly and helpful. And also the drinks are good 🍹. Overall it was a fun dining, well done chef @charlesolalia!
Food is good, love the HIP vibe. Very friendly staff.
Everything was delicious but it wasn’t hot!:(
I wouldn't describe the food as impressive as much as it was kind of out of left field. I had asked the waitress if the establishment had Mang Tomas sauce (which is kind of a staple at any filipino restaurant) only to be told that they don't know what it is nor did they come back to inform me they didn't have it. Also, our first Lechon dish came out cold but the waitress was more than accommodating to replace it with a fresh one for us.
Food was very good! My only complaint was they charged $3 for the extra butter/pandan sauce that I had to ask for because the portion that initially came with the 2 pcs of bread was so small! it was only enough to spread on one pc of bread, honestly. I can understand $1.50 or even $2.00 but $3.00 for that small of a portion was a bit hard to swallow.
I hope they re-think their pricing a bit. Otherwise, everything else was great!
My date lived it so I'm happy.
I had the shrimp deviled eggs which were really good! Nice citrus flavor that balanced the shrimp flavor and complimented the creamy filling in the deviled egg. Also had the lumpia and chicken adobo with garlic rice. The uni on the lumpia was so good and the vinegar that came with the lumpia had a spicey kick to it that was really good! The chicken adobo with garlic rice was savory and was just the right portion to not get too full. Definitely worth the money since its family style (sharing food).
Cousins reunion Sunday Brunch. Food was delicious. Service was awesome. Cocktails & beer were delish! Coming back for dinner!
There was one good thing, the sandwich. Everything else was so bland, and a couple dishes were just gross. We got the fried oysters (terrible), pork belly (so fatty it was like gelatin, and no flavor), chicken adobo (bland chicken on disgusting rice with flavorless tomatoes). The bread seemed like defrosted and heated Costco rolls. The ambiance was cool, but the food and service were incredibly disappointing
Very knowledgeable and accommodating staff! I loved seeing Filipino dishes that threw back to home but also had a modern twist.
Great food, but way too loud for intimate conversations. Place would make do with an acoustic overhaul.
Great place celebrating the unique and fairly undiscovered food of the Philippines. The service was amazing and attentive, the food was outstanding. There is nothing like this in this town.
It was great to see elevated Pilipino cuisine and to see the place crowded (even towards the end of the night) with people of all colors excited to explore the food. Keep up the great work!
My boyfriend and I went here for the first time and the food was delicious! I had their Kare Kare dish because that is my favourite filipino dish and it was amazing! I can’t wait to come back and try more of their menu items.
I think it was ok . Since I’m a pinoy myself at least I can say I’ve tried it. I can go to a regular Pilipino restaurant and probably ordered a lot of from what I paid from ma’am sir.
I was visiting LA for the weekend and went to Ma'am Sir on the recommendation of a friend. My wife and I went there for her birthday dinner in September of 2018.
They seated us quickly and the service was attentive and not hovering or annoying. The food was amazing and came out very quickly. The food almost came out too fast if that's possible because we were enjoying our drinks and the atmosphere. We got the oysters, lumpia, chicken adobo, the fish and prawns. The lumpia, oyseters and chicken adobo stood out. All was well balanced and went really well with my cocktail.
All and all, great restaurant with a lovely staff and very well priced. Drinks are great as well. Glad we chose it for a birthday dinner!
Loved this place! Great for foodies...unique cuisine, impressive dishes and cocktail menu.
Great food and lovely setting.
Overall experience was OK. I ordered the Loco Moco and although you can tell that the meat was of good quality, it was a tad salty for my taste.
Exceptional food and fantastic service! This is where Filipino food meets nouvelle cuisine really an extraordinary artistic and flavorful gastronomic experience. Make sure you make reservations in advance this place is extremely popular
Timing of the small plates service weren't ideal such as the rice was brought out by itself at the beginning. Who eats rice by itself? Then it got cold by the time rest of plates were brought out. Very noisy and had to yell to have conversations with our friends just across the table. I've tried other modern Filipino restaurants around town and I thought they had a little more creativity and flavor. Glad I tried Ma'am Sir and appreciate the cuisine but I was a little disappointed.
