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).
Wonderful Mother's day brunch. Can't wait to go back.
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.
Fabulous ambience... Cosy, chic European vibe. Food and service excellent! I love this place!
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.
The staff here is amazing, the space feels as if you're at a high end hotel (which you are) and being in an interior courtyard just can't be beat!
There were 3 of us. 2 of our party got their dinner and we nearly finished when the 3rd plate arrived. Unacceptable for a Denny's level diner, but for a fine dining restaurant just unheard of.
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!!
We had a wonderful dinner with long time friends. Our server was very sweet and the food was delicious!! Precious precious place.
Lovely place. Great food. Helpful staff.
I was very impressed with the food, and I am picky !
Will definitely return!
The courtyard is beatifull. It is nice and quite, and it is also very nice for kids.
Great place... food was superb
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.
Beautiful patio area and decor. You can have a conversation with your friends. Food is good. The loud music starts later in the night when the bar area turns into an intimate nightclub .
Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff, delicious food
The oxtail tortellini was incredible! Beautiful and comfortable atmosphere, excellent service. All the dishes we had were fantastic!
Lovely outdoor seating ...quiet/intimate ambiance...attentive, friendly service provided by Veronica...food was good and plentiful for brunch...
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.
Adorable atmosphere with live music! Such a pleasant surprise. Cute decor and phenomenal service when we went for Sunday brunch. Not too busy.
This place continues to struggle even after its reboot. Service was very slow even though they weren't busy. Some mains did not include a side dish and the service did not point it out for our consideration when we ordering. Their outdoor seating options leaves something to be desired (our table was HUGE for 4 people). The food was tasty and satisfying with the exception of the issues mentioned above.
Loved the place. The menu was great for brunch. Was difficult to make a decision. So many great options. The food was great. Service was great. Bottomless mimosas.
Very pleasant atmosphere, restaurant is located in an open-roof yard of a hotel. Friendly service, quite original fulfilling dishes, a little pricey.
Fantastic hidden gem. Cool & chic outdoor (but protected setting. Super interesting menu and warm and professional staff. Loved it & will be back there again asap
The last time that I dined at Pallihouse Weho, it was a French cuisine. Mardi is a wonderful best kept secret. I love that it is not the one month wait list type of restaurant. Mardi offers so much more than those annoying wanna-be competitors. The atsmosphere is romantic. You can close your eyes and re-open to find yourself dining in an court-yard eatery somewhere in a Europe. The furniture
and ambience is fitting to a English-French theme. The wait and back wait staff is on point, from the refilling of water to the changing of plates and silverware between dishes. Now, The food.... One word..AMAZING! Everything that my guess and I ordered was delicious. Presentation got an "A" The flavor"A" also portion size "A". Between the two of us, there was enough food to share on each dish. So many good points left no room for bad points. I will definitely return.
Poor service. Did not cater at all to my friends and I. Food was mediocre at best. Would not recommend
Food was really good! Not too pricey. Loved the live music on Saturday and Sunday during the day.
Cute courtyard dining with tasty food. Came for an early Sunday Brunch and had much of the dining room to ourselves. Perfect place to catch up with a friend without the usual brunch craziness.
Mardi was a nice moderately sized restaurant that had a light crowd, which is perfect if you're trying to have a quiet meal with friends or significant others. Was not terribly priced for the good quality of food you were getting. Overall great experience.
The wild boar ribs were, as a friend put it, "like a pig and a fried chicken got down."
We went on a Friday about 12pm and there were about 7 people at the time. Service was SLOWWWWW. We did not receive our sodas for about 15 minutes. The portions were incredibly small and the bill came to $50 for two platters and one soda. I say one soda because the waitress split one can of Diet Coke for the two of a us with a "promise" to bring back the second can, which never arrived. The waitress came by a total of one time in the 45 minutes were there. We were on a vacation in LA for 10 days and ate out over twenty times and this was the only meal that was bad.
Oh, and let me add that when we arrived the front door was locked and the valet person had to open the door for us. NEVER AGAIN!!!
Cute little brunch time hide-away, ambience is old world and calming. You quickly forget about the bustle of the street. Quality food and good coffee. We sat for a long time chatting after dinning and were never disturbed with constant requests for more food and drink.
Highly recommended for a chilled out weekend brunch.
Overall the food is pretty interesting and good. The space is odd. It has a lot of potential but seems to have been decorated by an amateur. The decor is a hodgepodge of thrift store finds that just don't come together. Nor does the decor make the hipster, eclectic vibe it is going for. The service is ok. Everyone is friendly, but everything is slow and not very polished. All of these things would be fine-- they aren't bad in and of themselves.
What earns this an overall 3 from me is how ridiculously overpriced the place is. If Mardi is going to charge like a 5 star, fine dining restaurant charges, they have to get a designer in there and improve the service. The staff are super friendly mind you. But I would recommend that this place cut its prices in half and make up for it with all the new business they will get... and all the booze they will sell.
The place is huge and in a great location. It could be something really special.
Wow what a huge let down! food fair to bad and overpriced, restaurant empty and I mean no but our table, staff nice but slow, even the bar staff, no idea how this place stays in business other than my bill should keep them going for the next week, yep expensive and not worth the price tag at all.
Food menu not great, but location and staff are fabulous.
