I think they changed chefs since the last time we were here. It shows. The first time we were here. Everything was great. This time around nothing stood out. Food was mediocre at best. Too bad. We really liked this spot.

Loved this place, such a gem find in an unassuming strip mall. Food all had balanced developed flavors, pacing for dinner was relaxed and service was thoughtful. Will be back!!

The food and wine and service were all excellent, but the noise level is very loud. It's a small place with tables very close together and I still had to shout to my friend sitting across from me at a two person table.

Awesome meal! One of the true food gems of LA. Great wine list and excellent upscale bistro fare. Every plate was fantastic.

The food is tasty, but it's not the giant bargain it's billed as. Portions are not overly generous, and there's nothing luxurious about the food. For example, the bavette steak (essentially flank steak) consists of about eight thin slices of meat served on an otherwise empty plate. Even with a side of haricots vert or pureed potatoes, this is no great bargain at $24 if ordered a la carte. Don't get me wrong--it tastes good and I cleaned my plate. But the $35 charged for the three-course prix fixe meal is just about right for what you get.

Papilles is more than a neighborhood treasure. It is well worth the drive from locations further away. The food is creative and delicious. Claudio, the new chef, creates terrific dishes. The service is personal and gracious. Manny, the manager, is charming and helpful. Jose is kind and attentive. Not only a fantastic place to dine, but also a great value. There are many good reasonably priced wine selections displayed along the back wall.

Fourth time dining at Papilles. This time we went with our friends who are actually French. They loved it. Reminded them of a bistro in Paris! Each time we've been there we've had a different meal, which is the style of the restaurant , and each time it was wonderful. Check their website for that evening's menu, or better yet just go and be pleasantly surprised. The service is also great and very attentive and they have a great wine list. Highly recommended!

It's a great little restaurant, nicely hidden away. The food is always fantastic. The staff knows the food and the drinks; their answers are very in-depth and knowledgeable.
