Beautiful ambiance to celebrate my friend’s birthday. The food was very tasty and our server Josh has to be commended for taking amazing care of us. Our experience was made infinitely better because of him. Thank you Josh!

Very cute vibe if you are "inside the big tent" but we were seated outside which almost seemed like overflow seating. Our rsvp was for 1145, didn't seat us until 1215. Not a huge deal, we didn't mind chatting. Food was the big miss for us. Cold, bland and def not worth that price for breakfast. Go for the cute insta photos and a drink but don't stay for the food. Service was good.

Food was luke warm, at best. Some was tasty...not particularly special. The waitress was very nice, but not particularly attentive to us...coffee went in-refilled for long periods of time, food took a long time to get to us (maybe server did not pick it up to deliver to us for a long period leaving it to get cold), we could not find our waiter to pay bill when we were done and we needed a to go box and clearly wanted to get going and our server became uncomfortable and rather than going to get us the to go box...became obsessed with clearing our table. Probably not great training and perhaps not well staffed for a larger brunch crowd. Prices were high for what we got.

The food was not that great and the service was terrible. Our waiter never came and checked on us then left without telling anyone. We had to flag down another waiter who was just as bad. Would not recommend!

The service was truly outstanding and impeccable, leaving us impressed. Food was also great! The freshly baked sourdough & truffle butter...rendered us near speechless.
The manager & staff is to be commended for their attentiveness.

Highly recommended. Will be back for brunch! Thank you!

Food and drinks were delicious, service was great and the interior was stylish. A bit overpriced compared to other similar restaurants I’ve been too, but a good place if you want to splurge on brunch a bit.

The food here is absolutely outstanding - everything we tried was better than the last. The service left a bit to be desired, as the waiter was a bit too absent and the pacing of the dishes was a disaster (everything came within a few minutes of each other, filling our tiny table).

But the food was so good that we left happy. Worth trying even with the difficult price point.

The dining area in the greenhouse is gorgeous, and the whole ambiance is lovely, but the food wasn’t spectacular for the price. Coffee was poor. I would maybe get just drinks at the bar there next time.

This is for a 5 course nye tasting menu an wine pairing.

The food and wine were excellent. Not unlike what would be served at Mr. Citrin's Melisse.

The service was adequate, however for a meal that comes up to over $500 for 2
with tax and tip, the staff should be more knowledgeable about the wine and dishes they are serving. I have not dined at OpenAire on the regular menu and the staff may be knowledgeable enough for that, but for 5 star Melisse quality food the staff could have been more knowledgeable and professional to justify the price point.

The environmental are wonderful. Food are super delicious! But it was too noisy. I couldn’t hear anything when my family talking and I have to raise my voice up. I think the music volume they played that day was too loud.

For a night out on the town or a nice getaway along Wilshire, this venue was an excellent choice. I will say that this venue is more upscale, so the prices are higher. Also, being in more of the heart of the city, there is some urban ambiance. Similar to a high rise stay in New York. Date night with the wife and I was fantastic! Thank for for the wonderful service and superb food quality.

My husband and I love the Line Hotel and their restaurants are usually amazing. However, we were a bit disappointment with Openaire for dinner service. I think we would have enjoyed brunch more with the ability to get the full effect of the green house and less pressure the for food quality to be amazing. Our main issue came when our waiter forgot about us. After attempt to flag him down the manager noticed us and asked how our evening was going. We said we had been waiting on a check for roughly 30 minutes. He had someone bring us our bill then that person forgot to come back and collect it. Finally we cashed out at the bar. Please keep in mind we were two of 18 guests dinning that evening. It was also very hard to read the menu with such low light. We got out our cell phones to see, which kinda ruins the effect they are going for. Overall a frustrating experience with just okay food. However, I truly believe restaurants and teams have off nights so this could have just been an off night.

We had 2019 Christmas dinner at the hotel so this review may be unfair as set menus can be difficult to execute but with a restaurant having high scores on Open Table it had we thought this challenge could be overcome. Unfortunately, we were wrong. The room was loud, so dark one could not read a menu and the vibe decidedly more hipster than hoped. Having eaten our way through LA for the past week from Langers to Spago to Park's BBQ to Tasty Noodle and any and all points in between, we know the standards are high and expected Open Aire to match. Execution was poor - scallops overdone, wine pairings not paired well, sauces not as flavourful as the dish demanded and food not warm. To be fair the duck breast was well prepared with crispy skin and juicy meat and the potato puree was very tasty but otherwise a big meh sadly.

Went to Openaire for Christmas dinner and it was wonderful. The French onion soup was amazing as was the 7 fishes soup! Both of my parents also enjoyed their meals and the service was great. We were seated right on time and the cocktails were delicious!

Food was pretty yummy except it came out 50 mins late, the ambiance was incredible but some of the staff made it uncomfortable. This place is a gem but needs to be revamped may be a few service and manner courses with their hostesses. That would help them.

I booked this for my sister and her friends. She's from out of the country and none of her local friends have gone here. On my reservation it says only outside seating is available for that time and when i got there to settle them in, the host asked me if we'd like to be seated inside, so it was perfect. And before I left, i told the host what food in the menu I wanted my sister to try. My sister and her friends enjoyed their time there.

Funny smell on entrance and throughout evening. Fish was hibachi grilled and undercooked. Prawn toast really soggy and sweet flavored sauce. Avocado spread was salty and seemed canned on top of Ahi tuna tartare that didn’t seem that fresh. Kale salad was very very good, and should have just gone with a couple orders of this.

This was a terrible experience. The food was only okay but WAY over priced. The service was poor...a person at the next table started vaping pot and the waiter wouldn't do anything about it. The ambience was okay but nothing about the location, the food or the service was particularly special or good. I am never going back.

Overall poor service but good quality of food.
I got a wrong to go box and I found that when I got home. and so many mistakes about dishes like they didn’t put sauce on the salad even through other one’s had, they didn’t give us utensils.
It’s not worth paying tips.

Food was pretty good, some great dishes, some mediocre ones. Forgot the sausages we ordered but there was too much food anyways and off the bill. The setting is really nice but I suggest changing the chairs. They scrape often against the rock floor and it gets pretty screechy.
