Every time I come here I have the feeling that it used to be better. I'm not a fan of what the service has become. The waitress wouldn't let me speak and was basically choosing my dish for me. The sommelier showed up with a bottle of wine without even asking us what we liked. They ran out of tagliatelle and had no similar pastas (!) I don't think I'll be coming back next time.

Really looked forward to this after waiting years to go. I'm sure the 3 tables near us all enjoyed their amuse bouche, but alas we did not get one. Not a great start. You should not have to fight with your food. The crust on the Burrata and Bacon was so tough I could not get my knife through it. Components were good but the finished dish was destroyed by the crust not being edible. Affettati Misti with Gnocco Fritto fantastic, one of the highlights. Had two pasta dishes, both were very good, could have been a larger serving for $50. Duck tasted old and the fish needs to be cleaned up by a server, lots of bones and dangerous for the diner. In regards to the vegetables with the fish, again, you could not cut them. Don't bother with dessert, fail. Brown butter cake had nuts on it that were burnt and stuck to your teeth, 2 tablespoons of gelato and half a peach all for only $14 a bargain, why not give me the whole peach. $30 corkage fee too. I get it but when most of your wines are average and triple the going price what should a person do. Would I go again, yes for the first two courses only like many diners around us. Service was very good and appreciated the time between courses too.

The food was salty. Fish, real fish, should not taste fishy. Seems like the fish was old. If you are going to serve one ravioli make sure its good. Olive oil should not pass for "sauce" its just olive oil.

Having heard nothing but raves about this restaurant, perhaps my expectations were unreasonably elevated. The menu is fascinating, based on the inclusion of exotic sounding ingredients that one has likely never heard of (varieties of tomatoes, peppers, pasta, etc.). Makes for interesting conversation with the waiter, but I'm not sure it translates into unusually tasty food. In a sentence, our meals were tasty and interestingly presented, but nothing especially outstanding or memorable.

I have been to Osteria Mozza several times over the past 4 years and have ALWAYS enjoyed great dining. It had become a "must go" whenever I visit LA. Sorry to say this past Wednesday's dinner was a disappointment. Someone in the kitchen loves salt. Almost every item ordered (there were 3 of us and we each ordered multiple courses), was salty to too salty - had to send one item back. My daughter and I had come to expect exceptional food from Mozza. This dinner was not up to standard and at $390 tab (before tip) not a good value proposition. THough service was, as usual, superb - may not be back.

This has been one of our favorite LA restaurants for a while now. This weekend we took the kids for a night out (10&13). Nancy Silverman was kind enough to come over to the table and take a photo with the kids. They had recently watched an episode of Chef’s Table on Netflix showcasing Nancy. We all admire her and her story.

If you want to experience the traditional way of eating Italian, this is the way to go...also, delight yourself with the Mozzarella Bar....lastly, meeting Nancy, was the highlight...spear no expense, though, and make reservations...

Osteria Mozza was incredible. I was visiting LA with my boyfriend and he heard about this restaurant through Chefs Table on Netflix. From the burrata, to the pasta, to the steak, to the dessert was extremely tasty and delicious. The service was even better. The waitress was so accomodating and kind. At the end of the night, she had to leave and said her colleague will be taking over. He was also beyond kind. I will be recommendating this restaurant to friends for sure !

Excellent from beginning to end. Every dish is prepared with care and high integrity. I recommend, as does just about everybody, the cheese appetizers and the pasta dishes. You don't come here for a steak in my opinion. Also, their bread is amazing, but a guy coming around with a silver tray and pair of tongs asking you which ONE piece you want is somewhat off putting. (Is it OK to ask for two or God forbid three? I didn't want to embarrass myself so I dutifully took one.)

wonderful experience, impeccable service; a great place for a special occasion

we were in a smaller dining room, so it was not super loud. The main dining room is a bit loud, but just filled with sounds of happy diners (but our smaller room was more romantic).

refreshing panzanella... world class cheeses.

All in all a delicious combination of traditional Italian done perfectly with a modern twist. Would love to return.

(please excuse lack of professional lighting for the pictures — in person the presentation was art)

What a disappointment. Formerly my favorite LA Italian restaurant, now a loser: burned prosciutto on the prosciutto/fig appetizer, one horribly salty pasta dish, one pasta dish with dry sauce. My wife is Italian American and we've been eating this food for more than 130 years between us. We'll never go back. Nice wine steward and wine list.

Watching Nancy Silverton on Netflix we definitely wanted to eat at her place. We made reservations some time in advance but had be automatically ushered to a side room, not where the action was. Wine and food had been served at a very fast pace, we explizitely asked for a slower service.
Even though the food was excellent we would have preferred a real slow food Italian experience especially in a high priced restaurant.

Service really good, helpful and kind. That being said, on the food side, we had a bad experience with one of the "roasted meat"; way too salty while the other was pretty good. And when you paid +USD35(out of tax), you expect the food to be good. And was not 100% the case this time which turned our gastronomy experience into a "not so good" one.
