Mardi Restaurant, located within Palihouse West Hollywood, invites you to join us to delight in a festive al fresco dining experience filled with great food, refreshing drinks and a spirited neighborhood atmosphere. Group Executive Chef, Kris Tominaga’s menu is fresh and bountiful - - the food embodies the essence of a bespoke home-cooked garden party with a distinctly Californian vibe that is seasonal and light. Large format dishes are designed to be shared with the whole table, passed from end-to-end and hand-to-hand. The house-made cocktail program is evocative of a quintessential California special affair and the wine list carefully curated by our friends at Wally’s Wine.

I booked this restaurant for a birthday dinner. Was extremely disappointed when I walked in to find out that “they are no longer serving dinner.” My reservation was at 9pm and I had showed up at 8:55pm. It seems like OpenTable and the restaurants they work with need to work better with each other.

Terrible service. Waiter was not willing to be helpful at all. Online menu is completely different than actual.
They were out of several drinks.
Nothing impressive about this place.

Prior to this visit I had only gone for brunch, which was amazing. We arrived at the tail end of dinner service. Open table allowed us to book at 9:30 but it seemed they were ready to close when we arrived as they rushed our ordering of everything at once. This was fine we were hungry and looking to go out after so we did not mind. Food was delicious and delivered piping hot and quick. The hotel lobby has a great setup. There seemed to be a setup to the right for a DJ etc but was empty. Too bad as this would be a great location to meet up for drinks.

We received a recommendation from a relative who was there for lunch and loved it. We went for dinner at 7:00 and we were one of two people there. Service was good. Food was fair, however the Baba Ganoosh was very good. Not enough selections on menu.

I live across the street from Mardi and this was the first time I had been, but it won't be the last! I had been looking for a romantic setting for a date night with good food and good service and that is exactly what I got. The charcuterie board was expensive (probably down to my greed and love of cheese and meats) but was delicous and the chutney was out of this world. We had a great waiter who was attentive and gave great recomendations.

Been here a few times and gets worse each time. Food and service were only average but prices warrant much better. Decor is still odd. They need to hire a designer and bring in a new manager and chef.

Based solely off the service alone- I will not be coming back. They were out of multiple items on the menu and the waitress did not disclose it until I tried to order it, for three different dishes. The Bloody Mary was watered down and we barely got offered any refills. Such a shame that this place is so beautiful and has such terrible respect for their customers experience.

It was a cool early evening (around 6pm) when we arrived. Since it was already cold, we noticed they had some super soft blankets around. I have to say I was quite surprised that they didn’t have heaters around(or at least we were not offered any). Eventually, some of our group saw that there was a heater in the corner and asked for it.

The food is excellent, albeit a smaller menu. It’s fine - just not awesome for vegetarians. Otherwise, everyone enjoyed their meals. The menu said the plates are meant for sharing but the portion sizes were small - not much sharing happened.

Our server was very good about coming back from time to time to check in on us - he was very quick to get things for us.

All in all, I enjoyed our meal - we had a good sized group (8).

On Mother's Day. The staff was incredibly rude. It took 4 requests and 30 minutes to get coffee... at breakfast. When we asked for real sugar, the server brought stevia and got snippy, insisting it was sugar. When I asked for a Bloody Mary, I was told, "no, we can't do that, there is no bar staff, try something less complicated and maybe I can make it for you." The service was neglectful and there was only 1 other table of 3 people in the entire restaurant. Inexcusable. Such a shame because it is a beautiful setting. Will not be returning.

The ambiance is great, with its half-indoor/half-outdoor courtyard dining room, but the food experience was less than expected. The food choices sounded great on the menu, but were disappointingly lackluster when delivered. The kitchen and waitstaff also seemed to have problems communicating - as they delivered my dining partner's entree, they told me the fish I had ordered was no longer available due to quality issues, and I needed to order something else. This was a little late to bring this up, so I asked them to return my partner's entree and bring them out together next time. I was disappointed they didn't handle it this way on their own. Plus, the menu is very small/limited, and it was not easy to pick another desirable entree. I recall there was only 1 dessert option? Another disappointment.
To the restaurant's credit, they recognized the awkward service and meal we had, and our dissatisfaction, and comp'ed much of the meal.

I would Have loved to eat at Mardi, but when I went in the entire restaurant/ lobby was being moved around and looked like it was being remodeled. I was able to make a reservation, but when asking one of the employees about the brunch he said the restaurant wasn’t even open. I came into town for the weekend and had plans with 2 other friends and we had to scramble to find another place to eat. Later we found out that there was a private event with zero notice or notification. Really disappointing and a huge oversight by the property.

There were only 2 tables and serve consistently left us having to ask for service. It is overpriced for the service. We were there for a birthday and ended early to go elsewhere after having a pretty hefty bill for only a few snacks and a bottle of wine.

We discovered MARDI as a happy accident. We decided to have brunch last minute and it had good reviews on Yelp so we made a reservation. If you are looking for a place to people watch, I wouldn't recommend going at 11am as we were the only people in the restaurant. However, the courtyard is beautiful and feels very old world Hollywood. The service was excellent and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. She actually changed our minds and helped us order (the eggs and polenta with mushrooms). The food was incredible and our mimosa glasses were never empty. You could tell that everyone was working as a team. If our server was busy the host would refill our glasses. Would recommend for the atmosphere, service, and food!

I absolutely LOVE this place! My first time even hearing about this place was Saturday! I dined with them on Sunday for an early morning brunch and it was AMAZING!! They have bottomless mimosas for $25/per person. WORTH IT! Guy comes and refill you after every 2 sips lol!! J/k they do refill pretty quickly. Then you have a guy playing the piano and singing live. It’s also amazing. The view!! How could I forget the view!! GORGEOUS!! I wish I could sleep here every day!!

Just had the worst experience. We arrived and the host wouldn’t check us in, and then told me to to just sit anywhere. Then she came over to ask if we wanted water. She wouldn’t make eye contact. Then she dropped off menus and never came back to take our order. 30 minutes later we just left

Excellent brunch in a cozy, cute setting with a hidden courtyard in the Palihouse hotel. The baked eggs and duck confit sausage were both delicious, and the avocado toast was a great starter on amazing bread. I appreciate the attention to detail, especially with the homemade butter and jam that comes with the bread. Prices are quite high for brunch, but other than that it was a wonderful experience. I would return and recommend.

The chef is very inflexible. The vegan/vegetarian options are not good. I am no chef but can make a better salad at home using the same supermarket bag of mixed greens and don’t have to pay for it 3 times more for the action of adding dressing to it.

For the high prices, Mardi puts on a facade. My Reservation was for 12:15 and we were sat at 1:10. Not a good way to kick off a fun brunch. Took about 20 mins to get our mimosas and they forgot a drink. My party was 4 people... get it together, yo! Incorrectly served us avocado toast instead of our ordered ricotta toast. Charged us for 3 extra mimosas. The entire staff's eyes are just glazed over. I'm shocked I had to pay for torture. This place will test your patience even if you're not easily frustrated.
