Not all menu items came as described on the menu; food was still very tasty!

We sat outside and it was really quiet, despite being around other tables with lots of people. Ambient music was awesome. Service was exceptional!

Food was mediocre at best, the cart never came to us although we chose the entree, cart, and bottomless cocktail option.

My son and I had breakfast and it was the absolute best place to sit and enjoy my coffee. My breakfast sandwich wasn't Instagram-ready, but one woman's carefully selected breakfast (sitting next to us) was. The sandwich was delicious, the surrounding was serene, and the service was great.

The restaurant itself was beautiful but we ordered the tasting menu and were dissapointed. It was pretty expensive, which was fine but we were expecting some amazing food for that price and instead the food wasn't anything special. I would come back here for a date to have a drink but I wouldn't eat here again!

I was able to reserve a great table during a fairly busy Sunday brunch. The prices were very reasonable for such great quality food. And our server (Donald or Ronald-forgive me for forgetting your name sir) could not have been more attentive and courteous. This guy treated us as if we were his personal guests. Thank you for being an amazing server and person.

The overall experience was great but the only complaint I would have was that our server who initially took our order never came back to our table. Apparently she clocked out but did not communicate that with the other staff so it took a while for us to get our food ordering and then get our food.

We were seated outside, the server did not give us any attention, especially with us being in direct sun for a long time, even though we asked to switch seats. The mimosas were not being filled up as often as they should have been. It is not worth it unless you're sitting inside. Overpriced and terrible service

It was OK, and not a great value for the price. We had iced coffee and decaf coffee and both were just average. We had avocado toast and huevos rancheros, and it was just average as well. AV could've been more flavorful. To be honest, huevos rancheros portions were a bit too small, but it wasn't too bad.

All that said, pretty place inside and quiet, but wouldn't recommend. Valet parking's expensive, and the hotel is a bit on the older side than contemporary.

We arrived early and there was no hostess. After flagging a few people we finally got someone to help us out. I was very clear that I had made my reservation through open table, they found it, saw my special request. Soon after, I got an email from Open Table chastising me for not honoring my reservation. Not cool.

Our family of four had a fabulous meal at Openaire while visiting LA. Lured in by the beautiful ambiance, the food was just as
Impressive. Two of us had the prix fixe meal while the other two ordered a la carte. There were so many standouts, it’s hard to pick just a few but here goes: the kale salad and little gem salad, the octopus, the cod, the fried rice and the steak. Finally, the service here was tremendous. We had an excellent waiter and also benefited from a little TLC from Assistant Manager Salas who went above and beyond to ensure we were all happy with our meals, sending extra items and making expert food and beverage recommendations. This restaurant is fabulous in every way. If we lived closer, it would be our go-to spot.

Only little annoying part was our original server was a little enthusiastic in recommending wines, when had just sat down & literally had no time to even glance at the drink menu.
He was polite just a tad too much.

We waited an hour for our food. Groups around us that arrived at the same time or after were all getting served. When our food finally did come out, one dish had hair in it. The rest of the food was good. Our server was very apologetic and we know it was not his fault. We had to rush out because we waited so long we were almost late to check out of our hotel. It is a pretty restaurant, but that was its best quality during our visit.

Menu is super limited. Portions are small and overpriced. Beautiful venue. Wouldn’t come back for dinner but brunch sounds better (read: less pretentious). Lots of other great (better) veggie driven restaurants around here. Was kind of disappointed to be honest. Could’ve gone to Gracias Madre and been happier. Sorry :/

The food was AMAZING. I had the Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup. OMG! My wife had the Mediterranean Chicken wrap, and it was perfect. We sat outside by the pool. Great views and ambiance. The only issue was. That the service was very slow, evenb thou they were not busy. Plus, I had to pay $12.00 for valet parking, even thou the restaurant validated my ticket. I spent $75.00 in total, not including parking. Expensive is an understatement.

Food was amazing, however the service wasn't the best. Food took a little longer and drinks as well. Although we were offered a complimentary mimosa due to the wait of our other drinks. Food was tasty, and okay priced for what it was. I would still recommend this to people.

More of an Instagram restaurant than an actual restaurant. The food was okay: the cart items were a little stale, the entrees were fine. But at this price point, what you're paying for is the gorgeous ambiance and the people-watching.

I was so excited to finally go to Openaire. The Ambieance looks really cool in a hip part of Ktown. I liked the convenience of booking online because when I have called, the phone just rings without answer, so online booking is a much better choice. Liked the music and ambiance. You get 5 stars on coffee and drinks, but the service was poor and the food mediocre. I order the Bulgogi Hash which was presented nicely but the taste was horrible. Didn't even finished 1/3 of my plate since it was way too salty, too many condiments, maybe to add flavor but taste too salty and my girlfriend ordered the Maine lobster club sandwich which the mayo was too bitter. Overall it was a disappointment since the decor and ambiance is beautiful and should be a place where people would love to want to go. I would recommend the place for coffee and drinks but not food.

Cool space, but boring / Same-Old New American Fare that looked good, tasted uninspiring, and cost a lot. If you're looking to see/be seen, then just go for the bar and skip the $70+ per person tab.

The food was delicious my partner and I went to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We attended brunch and did the 55 deal with the cart, entree and bottomless cocktails. When we first arrived we were seated outside because I had requested it, but the table available outside was whack. My boyfriend and I decided to sit inside on the communal table. I feel like the host should have done a better job at reserving a nice table for us. Upon seating we waited at least 10 minutes to be greeted drinks were an extra 15 as well as the cart that goes around with goodies. We just waited to long for service and it was not even busy!

We went for dinner on a Saturday night and the food was amazing and the restaurant is beautiful. However, the first thing we noticed was how crazy loud it was. It was only 6:30 at night so it wasn't like a bunch of people were in the bar or anything. We also made a reservations and were given a table at the front door and was freezing. Every time the door opened -- we knew.

The restaurant is nice and the ambiance is amazing, but you have to valet at the Line hotel and it’s 13.50. Add that to your already $150 bill if for two people. The waitress was extremely friendly and sweet, but I didn’t care for the European style seating. Overall good experience. The food was delicious but I really needed salt .

We had our anniversary here and they took complete care of us. We stay at the Line hotel every year for our anniversary and we went down to the bar for cocktails the night we arrived. The restaurant used to be the commissary but we wanted to give the new place a shot. Of course we had delicious drinks and started chatting with the bartenders. We told them our story and how we had reservations the following night before catching a concert at the Wiltern Theater down the street.
We showed up and were seated pretty quickly. I was waiting for my date to come down from the room and when she showed up they gave us champagne and toasted our anniversary. The wait staff was very knowledgeable about their menu and offered up their favorites and what would pair with our after champagne cocktails. Everything was perfect and we have found our new spot in something familiar for years to come. Thank you so much Chef and thank you Openaire.

Whether you are into communal dining, drinks at a bar, lounging or regular seating, you will find all this and more here. The main seating area is in what could be called a glass-enclosed conservatory. The food is excellent and the wait staff knowledgeable about the food and cocktails and willing to provide suggestions to suit all manner of mood and desire. Highly recommend and was impressed that 4% was added on to accommodate a health plan for the staff.
