Unique menu choices, great service and a comfortable environment. A win win win.
Excellent service. Great food presentation and amazing taste.
i’ve been meaning to get in here for dinner since it opened, but just haven’t gotten around to it. when i saw they are now open for brunch, it became a mission. i loved the eclectic menu that was able to satisfy those in our party that just wanted breakfasty things like eggs, potatoes, bacon, pancakes and pastries, but others that wanted something a little different like the smoked fish plate, roasted pork loin, and roasted veggie grain bowl that you can add avocado, egg, etc... they had so many other options that i need to come back and try more. the coffee was perfectly dark and strong, and the sake bloody mary had a back of the mouth kick that made me want to drink them all day long. if this is what josef centeno is doing for brunch here, i can’t wait to check out dinner.
Exquisite tasting menu, superb service, gentle hip ambience! Also attentive and respectful of a nut allergic member of our party. Couldn't be happier that we celebrated here!
Very lovely experience. Came here for Valentines dinner (day after). Food was perfection. Every bight worth it. And chef kept sending food for us to try apart from the 6 courses. And then we had the actual owner come down and spread complementary truffles on our poached lobster. Definitely coming back.
Overpriced crap. Mediocre at best. Valentine’s Day Prix Fixe was silly. Splurge for ribeye, a chunk of NY is always tough. And why serve it with beans? Beans? Beans on a holiday prix fix? Beans are peasant food, not upscale dining. Total check, $367 with t&t. Date went to In N Out after. Boring Ripoff.
O&W was a great 2 hour tasting experience that left my date and I satisfied and unable to eat anything more. The food was some of the most beautiful ive ever eaten with flavors to match. I highly recommend it for special occasions and for those interested in seeing what can be done with seasonal ingredients. Chef Joel knows what he is doing!
Evolving menu from week to week keep things fresh and exciting. The way the chef explores the multi-cultural ingredients keeps my taste buds guessing and let me experience food like never before.
The restaurant is cozy and intimate aprox 800 square feet with an open kitchen.
One of the best restaurants in the world. Elegant but sleek, excellent but unpretentious. And perfect portion sizing of both food and wine pairing.
Date night with daughter - in town from SF. The staff was helpful knowledgeable and welcoming. The food and the pacing were wonderful.
Single handedly the best dining experience I’ve ever had. And that’s saying something!! I had to shake the hands of our waiters afterwards and personally thank them for being a part of a dinner I will never forget. The food is so thoughtfully and creatively put together. I experienced flavors here that I have not experienced anywhere else. Yet every flavor, however foreign, was delicious! Every time I come back to LA from Ohio I will be dining here.
Great food and ambience. Staff VERY knowledgeable in not only the food but the drinks as well. Will definitely return.
Husband and I came here for his birthday. We enjoyed all the dishes except for the dessert, which was Apple Tart. We thought it was a little too dry and oily. Overall we liked it’s small portion and varieties.
Absolutely exquisite. The wine pairing was excellent as well. It’s a splurge, but worth every penny.
Orsa and Winston's was a true dining experience. Every dish on the Prix Fix six-course menu (there is only two menus six course and a 20+ course meal-upon request and request must be made 48 hours in advance ) was excellent. The wait staff was extremely attentive and friendly. The space is small and it can get a bit noisy at times with chatty groups, but well worth the meal even with the noise.
For the discerning foodies, this is a great place to have a six course tasting menu (the menu changes daily).
What a wonderful experience! We dined at Orsa & Winston prior to attending the symphony at Disney Concert Hall. The food was delicious and inventive and the presentation was stunning. The chef prepares a tasting menu so there are no choices for the diner, other than the wine! My favorite dishes of the night were the first course - Hawaiian kanpachi with grapefruit, avocado, and smoked trout caviar and the fifth course - Duck breast with great northern beans, kale, and red kuri squash.
I look forward to dining at Orsa & Winston again!!
Very pretentious food for a very poor result. Who cares if artichoke come from Jerusalem, the yellowtail from Hawaii or that the grapes from your German wine are kept safe from bugs by chicken? At this level of price you expect great food and wine, not storytelling.
Sorry for our kind waiter who was doing his best to make it less painful.
Worst restaurant I have been over the last few years.
Me and my gf went to O & W once a year for our anniversary, server was super nice and the cuisines are always surprising, very good efforts!
Great food and service. Amazing menu! Tasting menu only, a little pricy but worth trying!
Great food great ambiance
Food was spectacular. Really inventive dishes. Stellar service
Great place for special occasions. Amazing food and awesome decor. Would recommend.
Best meal of our honeymoon. Outstanding
Plan to spend at least 2.5 hours for dinner.
Superb in every aspect
Food was expertly prepared with attention to detail on every dish. Wonderful tasting menu and the sommelier suggested a perfect wine based on our needs.
Excellent! The quality and attention to detail was outstanding, and the food was delicious and very special.
The pairings with the fixed menu were excellent. The fixed menu was unique and the courses and selections were fabulous. The service was courteous and each wine offering was explained along with the course presented.
My only issue was the furnishings and decor. The prices call for a better environment. The food and service overcome the price.
Along with the tasting menu, we had the wine pairing. I highly recommend it. They serve wines that you wouldn't normally order or necessarily pair with a meal and they were all so perfectly paired. We went for our 15th anniversary & we sat at the bar next to a couple that just celebrated their 50th. It was a great experience.
Food was excellent. Downtown Los Ángeles becoming a food destination
Amazing tasting menu! Was not disappointed in the least.
Really lovely and sophisticated restaurant. All the best of Los Angeles fine dining and none of the pretension.
An outstanding and unexpected find. I had never been to the restaurant before, it looked interesting and I tried it. What a great surprise. The tasting menu was creative, innovative, well presented and simply delicious. The wine list is really interesting, lots of fascinating choices from lesser known regions we paired wines with the tasting menu, and the pairings were terrific. Service was superb, we sat at the chef's counter overlooking the kitchen (always interesting), ambiance was cool chic. It was a terrific experience, well worth a visit!
Everything was excellent!! My new favorite restaurant in Los Angeles.
We've had some great meals here several times in the past. Pretty much every aspect of the meal this time was a minor disappointment. Given that we paid as much as we would at N/Naja (around $900 for four including wine pairing and supplements and tip), there is really no margin for mediocrity. it was particularly disappointing since we brought friends with high expectations. That said, the service as usual was great.
Simply spectacular. This chef is cooking his heart out. The food he turns out is masterful and nuanced. If you love food, no question that this restaurant should be on your list. This is very sophisticated food in a lovely low key environment with impeccable service. Along with a very interesting wine list. Top notch experience.
Overpriced for a small and unremarkable tasting menu. The final savory course was almost inedible - a tiny overcooked piece of lamb with bland polenta. The wine pairing was also really stingy - it felt like a wine tasting at a tasting room, not an actual pairing with a meal. On the upside the service was friendly and the space is small and intimate.
Me and my wife's favorite place. The hospitality is so excellent and thoughtful I almost thought I was in Japan.
Lucky for us, Chef Josef was in house the night we visited and the menu was a secret until the dish arrived at our table.
The spot prawn plate served to us was the single best thing I've eaten all year.
OandW is way underrated for its consistent culinary creativity and warmth of service.
Second time there and as delicious as ever. The waitstaff are always delightful (especially that French waiter - he's super charming and knowledgeable, he really rounds out the experience).
I don't love the mural, but the decor is hip and elegant. The wines are fantastic, dessert(s) were sublime.
Overall, a must for any foodie in LA.
I highly recommend the wine pairing experience, the chef is very god at picking wines that match the food. Unusual wines we wouldn't have known to choose on our own. Very creative dishes on the lighter side. The restaurant space itself needs to be upgraded to better match the high quality food served.
