The service was perfect. The wait staff was there when you needed something and not when you didn't. The sommelier was outstanding!

Beyond incredible. One of the best fine dining experiences in the country and I’m just sorry that we had theatre tickets which forced us to leave too soon. Each course was impeccably prepared and presented and the service was attentive, gracious and perfect.
Two of us had the wine pairings and it was the right decision. The price is not for the faint of heart, but it was worth every penny

One of the most fantastic meals ever! From the stellar and well paced service to incredible food and wine pairings, this was a uniquely wonderful and memorable experience! It was the most I’ve ever paid for a meal for two (over $400 including tip) and worth nearly every penny! The ultimate special occasion destination restaurant - in the Walt Disney Concert Hall building so most convenient for the concert we attended immediately afterwards.

Had a wonderful time. Tamara was our server, everyone covered everyone. She did an absolute fantastic job. Kevin, General Manager greated us. He is so sweet and kind. We were celebrating our birthdays and the Chef Andraes sent out a delicious array of desserts with a generous note. All was a once in a lifetime experience.

I originally had a reservation for 2 and I added one guest the restaurant quickly and gracefully accommodated us even when it looked pretty full I am guessing for dining before the show. The food was outstanding and the service even better. The server was attentive but not intrusive making sure we knew what we receiving when you get the extra goodies from the chef. I truly enjoyed all the staff being very friendly and quick to answer my questions and my I say they are quite knowledgeable. I spoke my language and they kindly responded to me. The food was a wonderful experience I truly enjoyed all the flavors from the appetizer scallop crudo, wagyu beef and the delicious creme brulee truly outstanding.

Unfortunately , we had to wait 45 min for our entrees. It was getting very close to to the 8 pm and we had tickets to the concert. We had to leave without dessert. Nobody came to apologize, they just started to avoid our table and not making any eye contact. The food was excellent, but the overall experience was ruined for us. It was very unfortunate! We came to LA for my birthday weekend to have a nice dinner and listen to a wonderful music. Galina Shikhman

Food was good, presentation gorgeous, but there was no extraordinary flavors. What we loved the most was the amuse bouche, the bread basket and the tea at the end. We ordered the chef menu of 6 dishes. Food was obviously of great quality but is not revolutionary.
I really liked the water menu.
The service was outstanding, the ambiance was great too.
For 2 people, without alcoholic beverages we paid over 500. So kinda pricey.
Overall, it is an experience that you should have at least once. So I would recommend it, but probably we won't come back.

All the food here is delicate, delicious and well presented. We also love the complimentary appetizer and the sweets they are very impressive.
The favor of each dish is just right everything is impeccable.
My son loves the hand written note from chef for his birthday. He wants to frame it and hang in his room.
We will broadcast this restaurant to all our friends.

Always a delicious, creative and wonderful meal. Outstanding service. Friday evening the restaurant was quite crowded. The busiest we’ve seen it in years. The service was still excellent, but the kitchen was slower than usual. They did bring us and many other guests an extra course at no charge. In view of the crowd, a few of the tables were re-configured and we had a small table for two.

I was in LA for work and decided to go to the symphony and was looking for a dinner that would match the quality of the music. Patina is superb. The food is beautifully presented, the flavors fresh and original and much thought was given to the wine pairings for the prix-fixe menu. As a career woman who travels for work, one of my pet peeves is to be seated in a sup-par area when dining alone (in NY, I received vastly different treatment at an otherwise lovely restaurant when alone one week and a week later when dining with my husband). As such, it was a pleasure to be treated so well when eating solo at Patina. Bravo Patina- please continue to create culinary magic prior to the delights of the LA Phil!

It’s was very good. I had a reservation but we had to wait about 25 minutes for our table and then when we went into the dinning room noticed there were a few empty booths, and a lot of empty tables so don’t understand why we waited. Food was great, however last course was the steak and I’ve definitely had better . It was Kobe beef, but very tough, which was disappointing. Other than that, we loved it.

We were very disappointed. Took a friend out who was visiting from DC area. For the very pricy place that it is the ambiance was zero, the fact that the only choice was a set 3 or 6 course meal was disappointing since not all the 3 course choices were appealing . The food was too contrived and not that tasty. Desserts very mundane. It cost us almoat $500 fot the 3 of us and tho we can easily afford it , none of us felt like we had a great meal.

Wonderfully ornate, delicious food - in miniscule portions, but that’s to be expected from a super upscale place like this. Nice elegant atmosphere. They scored points by giving us a number of amuse bouches, a generous touch that we truly appreciated. However, the service was actually rather poor. Why? For one thing, there was simply too much of it. Our conversation was interrupted many, many times by our server and/or the sweet bus guy, checking in to make sure we were enjoying everything. I can see doing that once or twice but seriously, they interrupted us six or seven times during our 2.5 hour meal. And we were clearly having an intimate personal conversation. Aren’t they trained to sense the vibe of the table? Also, main server had an accent and spoke too quickly and quietly, making her hard for my 90 year old mom to understand. Not her fault she has an accent but Patina should work with accented staff to get them to speak slower and all the more clearly because of it. Three people had dinner for $465 including tip. For that I would expect a truly exceptional experience. Despite the great amuse bouches, this was an “OK” experience overall. Worth more like $250.
