It was my birthday
Will be back
We had a lovely dinner at Patina, 7 courses of perfection.
Service was great and attentive.
Looking already forward for the next time, I might get the duck then, which I saw is being done table-side! Wow!
I hadn't been to this restaurant in many years, but my husband and I were looking for a place to have a really nice meal before a performance at the Music Center on a rare night out. The meal was delicious, the service friendly and impeccable, and it was a joy to rediscover it!
Favorite downtown/Disney Concert Hall restaurant. Always first choice when attending Disney Hall or Music Center.
We opted for this Sunday dinner fixed price menu at $120 per person. Every dish was exquisitely prepared, there were three seafood dishes, and then a choice of beef or venison. We had venison. Service is always Friendly, professional, some of the people there have been there for decades. Specifically the bread man, is always charming.
This was just an OK restaurant experience which, when combined with a very pricey selection, gets Patina to the point that I will not rush back. Three reasons: (1) It was a very long dinner, meaning that a reservation less than 2 1/2 hours before a show or concert would have been problematic. (2) The menu was much more limited than I would have expected. On the 5-item fixed price menu the diner can choose one of two main courses, the other courses predetermined. On the more expensive 3-item fixed price menu the diner has 2 choices (3 for dessert) for each of the three courses. (3) Patina was significantly more expensive for us than were other good dining options in the downtown theater area.
On the other hand, the food was very good, though portion sizes were tasting-menu-size small.
From the warm welcome to the final departure, the staff here really know how to deliver gracious, expert, knowledgeable, and friendly service. If a French menu that includes a separate water menu that describes sources and flavor profiles of different still and sparkling waters turns you off, just wait for the bread service, or the surprise gifts from the kitchen that included a pre-appetizer amuse bouche and an entire Bento box of desserts, in addition to the courses we ordered! The service and quality and styling of the food is enough to warrant the high prices of the multi-course menus. A vegetarian and vegan menu is available and the staff and kitchen seem very able to accommodate any other diet. Located right next to Walt Disney Concert Hall, this restaurant is a surprisingly high-class experience near downtown L.A. and the Grand Park/Music Center.
We were horrified by our experience at Patina. Though we informed them of my wife's food sensitivities, not once but twice before we arrived, they ignored them. The staff was unprofessional, awkward, poorly trained and incredibly poorly informed. Food was mediocre at best and portions were microscopic. My wife could not eat sashimi and they offered no alternative. The squab was very undercooked--she did not eat it but the server, seeing she'd eaten nothing, didn't even comment, just took it away leaving my wife hungry. When I confronted the server that the only dessert had dairy, which would put my wife in the hospital, the moronic woman offered her a cheese plate as a substitution. So sad to see how this once lovely restaurant has grown intoxicated with their own brilliance in their own minds and have forgotten they are there to be of service to the customers. We shall never return, nor will our guests, who were annoyed with me for choosing this dreadful place for an important celebratory meal. A total disaster--and when I recounted the evening to another friend who dined there a month ago, she said the condescending attitude of the staff ruined her evening, too.
The food is always fantastic. The service is always good and attentive. Lovely dinner before the theater.
Just cant do more than 3 course taste menu if you are going to performance
Tremendous experience, from the detailed water menu to the Michelin worthy food and service!
Everything is always beyond exceptional here. From the service to the extraordinary food.
We appreciated that the chef allowed us to order a la carte due to theatre tickets, instead of the 3 or 5-course meal. There were not other choices and we were on a tight schedule. Perhaps that affected the dishes. The entrees were OK, not great. I ordered the chicken and it was very bland. Same with my husband's lamb. It was difficult to park, as the valet was moved due to a street fair that blocked off the entrance. It took longer to find it and we had less time for dinner. We were not told that we needed a validation from the restaurant either by the valet or the wait staff. As a result, when we got our car after the performance, we had to pay $20 instead of $8. The restaurant was closed, so it was not possible to get a validation. Even our receipt from the restaurant was not enough to provide a valet discount.
I been going to Patina on and off for 20 years but my recent visit revealed an experience that was only a shell of its former self Food was just okay. Not the same Patina quality and innovation of years past where the restaurant was inspired fine dining. The service was horrible. Extremely inattentive servers who appeared to be short staffed and busy running around the dining room. I had made it clear that we were going to a performance at Disney Concert Hall and they struggled to get us out just in time but we waited long intervals between courses. Course came out without any server descriptions. I noticed special attention at others tables with crumbing the tables and offering coffee and tea which our table was never offered. It could have helped make the long wait for a pre made dessert a little more tolerable. Patina’s glory days with Joachim, Theo Schoenneger or Tony Esnault capably at the culinary helm are long gone.
Was taken to Patina for my birthday and it was amazing. Even received a personal note from the chef at the end of my meal thanking us for spending my birthday there. Excellent and friendly staff too
Excellent Food, wine paired well with the meal and the service was great.
Perhaps the best cuisine in Los Angeles. A gem for decades and continues to maintain the highest standards. Sophisticated service. Marvelous ingredients. Inventive recipes. Elegant environment.
Amazing food & staff. Food & drink was as good as any French restaurant in Europe.
Inventive presentations, palate pleasing courses, including the delightful amuse bouche offerings. Attentive service. An overall lovely dining experience.
Amazing food! I recommend to stop by right before the LA Phil show.
Does Patina really need another rave review? It's consistently fabulous. We had the pre-theater tasting menu. The portions were right, the tastes were unique, the service was incredible. We told them we wanted to hear a talk before the opera and they got us out on time without our feeling rushed. And it was so quiet. Of course all this comes at a price, but for a special occasion it's well worth it.
Delicious tasting menu. We enjoyed our meal there!
Great food, great service, great vibe. Will definitely be back. Thanks again to the staff the night of 9/21!!
A tad pricey but nevertheless an enjoyable dining experience! The portion, although small, added up through the five courses to a become a more than satisfying meal.
Fine dining experience. Great food, wine and service. We enjoyed tasting menu. Wagyu beef was amazing. Appetizers were good. Small beautiful tasteful plates.They have really interesting water menu. Don’t laugh, it is a thing. I actually had a conversation with water sommelier, it was enlightening.
I really enjoyed the service. The food was excellent.
Love Martin the water sommelier
Miguel, Jose and all the staff were so attentive and friendly. The food was delicious. Such an enjoyable dinner!
From start to finish, I had an absolutely incredible time at Patina. I spent over four hours here! Everyone was just remarkable, attentive, and so polite. The food was just unbelievably good. I loved how wine-centric and intimate the restaurant was, as well. It may sound crazy to some, but I’d rather eat at Patina than n/naka (yep, I said it). For everything you get, it’d be hard to argue that Patina has reached the grand dame status of LA, fully deserving their Michelin star.
Beautiful meal from start to finish. Attentive and gracious service only enhanced the incredibly delicious dinner.
This place never disappoints. Phenomenal service, food and all around experience. Decadent all the way.
Nice experience last night at patina to celebrate my bday!!
We went during the DineLA week. It was $95 per person, be careful, there are lots of supplement charges and the server did not explain on the menu at all. The bill ends up for $400 for two person. The foods are average. Not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
WILL NEVER go back again.
Service was very good. Unfortunately can't say the same for the food. The tasting menus offered few choices. My wife returned her choice without eating it; I finished mine but I've had a lot better. Very disappointing experience. Won't be returning, won't be recommending it to friends.
I can only say awesome things about Patina. My husband and I drive from San Diego twice a year to eat at patina. My birthday in July, his birthday in December! The ambience, the service and the food, are spectacular. The bread is divine. And each course out does the next one. My main course of veal was delicious, and my husbands Wagu beef was exquisite. The peach tart that had St. Germain and hazelnuts in the crust… Heavenly. Charles our server is wonderful. And Martin, who remembers us from year to year is always a delight. Don’t miss this spectacular and special restaurant. You wont be sorry.
It had great service, and the place was very clean and well illuminated. Location is also great
Pricey. Pushy wine list. Good service. Only choice is two fixed price menus. Closest restaurant to Disney concert hall. Portions were small for the money.
Great all around, waitress didn't seem to know anything about the wine though.
