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.

This is one of the finest restaurants in Southern California. Wonderful selection of
different foods, top notch service, friendly, profesional in all respects. Fairly expensive,
but really not for what one receives. Highly recommend.

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.

Fantastic food and impeccable service. Certainly not the place to go for "value", but highly recommended as a fine dining option. Notable highlights were the black bass and wagyu main course.

This was my first time at the Disney Hall location, and having been in an Air Force Band with John Williams , was looking forward dinner at your place, then the Saturday night concert. But our two 10 month old pups had other ideas, and I was 15 minutes late for my reservation. But the hostess, the waiter and staff got me seated and suggested seven (?) course array, and I was anxious to eat. A fine martini calmed as did the wonderful food, ambiance and the wait staff.

I had eaten at a 'Patina' years ago which was on Melrose, I believe. I was then President of Pro Musicians Local 47 on Vine St. in Hollywood, and always enjoyed it. Is this restaurant another iteration of that fine dining spot?
Thanks for your good work. I look forward to coming back.
Happily,
Bill Peterson

The service was amazing. Services are nice. The most disappointed part was black truffle risotto since it needs extra $50 on top of our set menu so we were expecting an amazing dish but the rice seems not fully cooked and a little bit hard. didn't expect it at all so i don't recommend its black truffle risotto. I do recommend the sea bass. it was perfectly cooked. the food overall is good but not great. We had high expectation since the price is high and got a little bit disappointed.

This was an amazing restaurant! We got to do the tasting menu, and my fiance and I picked the different options so we were able to try each other's dishes and we were so glad we did. We wouldn't be able to do this every night - we picked this place to celebrate our anniversary - but it definitely lived up to what we were hoping it would be. Amazing service, the water menu was so cool, the food was incredible, and it felt like an intimate and super high end restaurant! Would certainly recommend for a fancy occasion!
