I had higher expectations. I asked for a table for 6 (it was a business meeting and we had private matters to discuss) and was seated at a long family style table in the middle of the restaurant that we shared with other diners. It was quite loud and quite hot. (My legs stuck to the seat I was sweating so much!) The food was good, albeit small portions. I got grilled cheese and one side of the bread was completely black so that was disappointing. But it is a beautiful space and the service was great.

Had a great brunch experience here!
The food was great - aesthetically pleasing while remaining delicious!

The ambiance is amazing, it’s like a greenhouse with marble accents. Very much a vibe.

But the best part was the service. All of the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, no attitudes, and that made all the difference. It just felt welcoming!

I would definitely recommend and I will be back very soon!

I went there for my birthday dinner. The restaurant was absolutely gorgeous, and the staff was great, although they were a bit slow at times on the food. Genuinely one of the best meals i’ve ever had (we both had the short rib), and the view was breathtaking. I will definitely be back.

The only thing I would add is they have TAP water if you ask for it. We weren’t given the option and paid $10 for water, which irked me. They should be upfront when asking if you want sparkling or still water. The restaurant I work at offers both and it’s complementary. So, when they asked what kind of water we would like, we had no idea that we were going to be charged $10.

Made reservations for noon on a holiday weekend. Arrived to check-in and was told I didn’t have reservations. Showed the reservation on my phone, and was told ok, it would be a few minutes. After about 15 minutes, asked how much longer before being seated after overhearing the hostess tell newly arriving guests that the wait would be 1-2 hours. I was then told my entire party had to be here (which all 4 of us were), and that we had to have arrived within 15 minutes of our reservation (which we did when I initially checked in 15 minutes ago). So all of that was weird, and it was a busy afternoon, but I felt the service and care could’ve been better.

Soon after, we were seated. I did request indoors, but were seated outside instead. We would’ve waited longer for an indoor table to open, but was not given that option.

Aside from the meh interactions with the hostesses, our server Brie was delightful and offered kind and attentive care and recommendations (5 stars for her!). The food was okay. The kitchen forgot one of our orders. So the overall experience and food was not worth it for me. Which is too bad, bc the space really is so beautiful.

The other inconsistent thing is that on Open Table, it appears that reservations are available every 15 minutes -always. But when you arrive without a reservation, there’s a 1-2 hour wait?! This makes no sense and should be aligned.

Our experience was noticeably strange. We, a party of 6 ordered all of our food together but it all came out randomly. First, a salad and two bowls of rice, then two salads, then a salmon and almost 20 minutes later my sirloin finally came out. It was very difficult to find our waitress (whose name we didn’t even know) and generally service was not attentive. The only upside to this place was that the sirloin and salmon were well prepared and the ambiance was nice. I expect more but the staff had no hustle or attention to detail. We could have chosen to eat somewhere half the price and have a better experience. Next time we will

Our server was so fantastic. The restaurant is beautiful, but I’m not sure I would go out of my way to get there. The food was overpriced, and the sauces and seasoning was over considered. Portions are very small. Service, great.

Some of the friendliest service I’ve ever received - so warm, attentive, and kind (not to mention, exceptional knowledge about the menu, which was so helpful in deciding on a course and drink).

The food was great but my boyfriend emailed in advance about it being my birthday and that he was bringing a cake. He arrived reminded them and gave them the cake they said they would send it out after our meals. Our meals passed he nodded to the waitress who acknowledged him and he thought it was time. But the waiter/waitresses forgot. At the end of our meal he had to ask for the cake back. Food was great, but service was sad for such a special day even after they had said happy birthday to me. Not reliable if you want to plan any sort of surprise. Staff were very busy and others around were also let down by service.

The overall environment is great since this is a pretty nice place for brunch. However, the food quality is not worthy of the price. I would recommend going for the first time but definitely not for a second time.

Service was very good; the staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was fair; there were 4 people in our party and everyone had an opportunity to try each other's dishes - the overall hit was the eggs benedict.

The food and service were both excellent. However, we ordered the tasting menu, and they forgot to bring out one of our dishes entirely and put cheese on something that we asked for no cheese on.

Food quality was subpar from what I remember at the Abbott Kinney location. Service was inattentive but I think that had to do with having a inexperienced server. I wouldn’t return.

The whole experience was great. However, the hostess were not very welcoming. We had reservations and she told us to wait at the bar. We kept seeking her sitting other people and when we finally went up to her, she sat my group down. The restaurant was not full at all, she had forgotten about us. The waiter on the other hand was awesome. He was very attentive.

Arrived for our reservation, then was told by a hostess "a minute," before waiting for five and being passed to another host, neither which checked us in for our reservation. Food took a long time to arrive and was on the heavy/salty side. Water was filled once at the beginning of the meal and never again in the hour. We had a reservation for two but was awkwardly seated for a table for five with only shading from the neighboring tables in the LA afternoon sun while tables for two were within eyeshot. Another table was leaving as we were ordering and their table was never cleared in the hour we were there.

It’s our second time here and the place has fabulous food and an amazing setting. Getting there and being seated to your table seems to be stressful for both times - the hostess always seems to have either “you have to be out” a certain time or “you have to wait 15 minutes if the other party doesn’t show up” before we can sit you attitude. And this is after having a reservation! Our party was supposed to be for four people and unfortunately, the other two couldn’t make it due to an accident. Party of two should be better to accommodate as guests as compared to four- but not in this place! There were several tables for two but they made us wait. The food and the service were impeccable- other than the hostess obviously .... And by the way, no more unlimited cart service. My sister and I didn’t mind and I guess, guests tend to stay longer with unlimited carts and drink service. The parking valet is also a rip off- $10 for two hours with validation and we ended up paying $16 each. Definitely difficult to park on the street so we didn’t even try. I don’t know- I would really like to love this place but with issues with reservations twice and parking- I’m better off staying locally on the West side. More beautiful places like Margot, Michael’s, Rose, etc. to enjoy without the drama.

The overall atmosphere and design at the restaurant is very good. Dishes are relatively small but exquisite. It was hard to find parking around but the hotel has their own valet which made this trip much easier. Server was friendly and enthusiastic in introducing the menu. A great experience after all, and will definitely recommend to my friends
