    The food was great. An appetizer or salad will probably be gotten next time because the scallop pasta was a bit small. But everything was delicious. The service was good. I'd definitely go back.

    I wanted to really like this spot - the service were all friendly but timing of food to come out was really prolonged by 30 minutes and to just middle of the road food. Their half off wine Thursday was a bonus

    Food is delicious and memorable. Unfortunately, the service was disorganized. In addition, when I asked to have my whole Branzino (mediterranean white fish which is very bony) fileted and the head and tail removed the chef refused to do so according to the the waiter. The fish was delicious( as was side of spicy cornbread and spinach and potatoe sides) but having to remove tiny bones in each mouthful ruined the experience. It also took approximately 30 minutes to have our food served. This meal took place during a weeknight.

    The food was very good but expensive considering that service is minimal: one has to go inside to the counter to order or order via a phone app. It is good there is outdoor seating but it is right on the street which is very noisy with traffic. Staff do not wear masks.

    This was my first time to Papille Gustative; I went for Sunday brunch with 2 others. Overall it was a very positive experience and I would recommend the restaurant to others. The only thing I acknowledge I'm not really crazy about is the requirement to place orders directly online through their web portal. I guess I'm old-fashioned, but there's still part of me that wants the human interaction of hearing from waitstaff, especially at a restaurant that charges fine dining prices for both their food and wine. If this isn't an issue for you, then I'm sure you will love it.

    The pictures of the food make it look amazing, but what we actually got served looked like a very low effort version… still tasted fine, but with the amount of good brunch options in LA, this was quite a let down unfortunately. Coffee drinks were great through!

    Unique food, the kindest staff. I felt like I was in someone’s home. They don’t have a standard kitchen, all the food is prepared and put together at a counter at the heart of the dining room.

    Food was okay…but service could have been better in terms of guiding us, as we ordered two things with the same meats on the plate and service was also a bit frustrating in terms of getting our order right. Worst part of the eve was having to listen to Taylor Swift for 2 hours straight. How can you run a high end restaurant and think that is acceptable….this is enough to make me not recom this place!

    They serve fancy think black bread with a hard crust that could break your teeth and hurt your mouth. The servers hovered over us on a date, kept interrupting our conversation to ask silly questions. I give them credit for good wine, but I'll not return.

    Too much spices such that we couldn't taste the main ingredients of the dishes: couldn't taste the asparagus in the asparagus soup nor the beef in the wagyu beef. Portion of uni is *so* small. I have never been served such a small portion. Wine was less than half of a glass.
