    Food was mediocre and lacked depth of flavor. It was truly underwhelming for a Michelin-rated restaurant. The ambiance feels weirdly sterile and the noise from the kitchen and other diners really impedes conversation with your party. Service was okay, one dish was made in error and there was no apology made. Take your money elsewhere.

    Really underwhelming and predictable. Way too much fat in each dish with no relief of acid or salt. Not good and certainly not worth the price. Go anywhere else before here.

    The food was spectacular. Every dish thoughtfully and expertly crafted. The wine pairing was fantastic with all organic wines from unique regions of Europe. The sommelier was great and knowledgeable and eager to explain what we were drinking. He even provided us with a list of the wines at the end of our meal so we could purchase them on our own. We will be going back for sure. 10/10.

    One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Well-deserved Michelin Star (in my humble non-professional opinion). Wonderfully unique and thought-out menu. Every course was taste-bud-opening. Flavours worked well together and nothing was overbearing. Really allowed us to taste the ingredients for what they are in harmony. Cozy atmosphere + warm, welcoming staff (thank you for explaining the fascinating history and origins of the restaurant and Chef Josef Centeno!) allows Orsa & Winston to shed the “uptight fanciness” that is unfortunately often associated with Michelin Star or high quality restaurants. Can’t wait to revisit the next time I’m in Los Angeles again.

    I take all bad reviews for Michelin restaurants with a grain of salt - it's nearly always due to people not actually wanting to pay the price of a luxury. This was easily one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. The food was absolutely exceptional. The service was even better. I'm a person with severe allergies and have had issues in the past of servers not knowing what allergens were present in dishes, or chefs refusing to accommodate, even with advance notice. Not so at Orsa & Winston. I was not only accommodated beautifully, I was told exactly what changes were made so I had peace of mind. My glass - neither water nor wine - was ever empty over the two or so hours we dined. We were served smaller plates between courses, but five courses was more than enough to feel full. Logistically: there is a parking lot easily accessible across the street for those driving - those saying it's a "particularly rough area" have perhaps never been to a major city before. It's actually one of the nicer streets of DTLA in my opinion, having lived here for many years. All in all - well worth the cost of luxury. Star well earned.

    Dinner and wine priced well. Personally, a little overpriced when you make it to the bill: Tax, Service charge, and underlined gratuity suggestion. At the end of the night you feel you've spent more than you should have. Also, I don't enjoy reading, "this charge allows us to equitably pay our employees" - feels like a way to guilt customers. Server only described what each item was when he brought it to the table. No further engagement or feedback between plates

    It was our first time visiting Orsa and Winston and as it happens it was for our 10th Anniversary. Our whole experience was great. The food was amazing complemented by service which was equally great. The staff recognized our anniversary which made it even more special. We opted for the wine pairing which was perfectly matched to the food and made it taste better.

    Josef Centeno and his staff have created a magical meal experience with their inventive tasting menu, which heavily favored shellfish, caviar and microgreens. Even the yuzu ume granita palate cleanser had the tiniest shiso blossoms that teased your taste buds to savor every spoonful. The highlight of the evening was the satsuki rice, a risotto-like dish with uni and parmesan creme that was so rich with umami and creaminess. The seared duck breast was tender and flavorful with the shaved truffle, although a bit undercooked for the taste of my two other dining guests--I think a few seconds more in the pan would have made all the difference, with the duck being more easily sliceable and juicy. Our servers were knowledgeable and friendly. I thought the wine pairing was good, but tended to favor natural, bio-dynamic farmed wines that are favored by younger palates. They were mostly inoffensive and paired nicely with the dishes, but to my taste did not add the complexity and challenge to the food that I expected.

    Our sommelier was extraordinary. The food was outstanding. I have never had such an intellectual experience; the wine pairing is a MUST. The way the flavors of the dishes are highlighted, or negated deliberately by the wines is astonishing. The pace of the meal was spot on. Our server was very knowledgeable with the sourcing of the ingredients and the best practice of enjoying each dish. Our compliments to the kitchen and staff for a very enjoyable dining experience.

    Smol restaurant with a homey feel off of 4th street. Recommend coming earlier to find street parking (very hard) or go to a lot ($10-$15 in afternoon and can be $20 in the evenings). Food, wine pairing, and service were elite.
