It has been a while since we have dined there, and we were reminded why this is one of the best restaurants anywhere. The service is absolutely impeccable. They expertly guide you through an complete experience from the moment you walk into that spectacular space. And they make you feel as if you are the most special person in the room.

We were also happy to see Mr. Welby back at the helm and this was our first time enjoying Andreas Roller’s exquisite cuisine. It was my birthday, so we indulged in the six course vegetarian tasting menu and added a shared fish dish. The food looked like artwork and the bold, creative flavor combinations were perfectly balanced in every bite. The John Dory was absolutely the best fish I have ever had.

The dining experience at Patina is truly unique in Los Angeles. That level of consistent excellence and attention to detail seems to be rare. It is always memorable, and Patina truly does it the best.

Excellent food and presentation. Aside from the salad and vegi plate, the first two courses of the vegetarian six course meal, being a bit bland, the other four courses and my wife's 3 course meal (scallops, chicken and chocolate) was superb. The bread and the extras were also excellent. Great attentive service. Pricey, but worth it. Not as amazing as Disfrutur, a Michelin, two-star restaurant in Barcelona, but very good.

Most of the food was very good, but our main dishes were under seasoned and the fish was overcooked. The prices ($110 3 course, $160 6 course tasting) are not as high as some gourmet restaurants but high enough to expect finesse with the food. That being said, we will go back as the overall experience was very nice.

The staff constantly rotated around which in principal seemed nice but when I needed something I often asked the wrong person and the right person would have to come back to the table after.

Location and ambiance was for the most part what was expected.

Food was great with one exception - we ordered 2 ribeyes. one medium, one mid-rare. the medium was mid rare and they had to re-fire and it still was rare in the middle. the mid-rare steak was closer to medium. I wouldn't normally be this critical but you are a Michelin star restaurant, the reason why we ate here, and I expected the food to be exceptional.

It's been several years since I've been to Patina, and I have to say I was rather disappointed this time. Both first and mains courses were not very good at all, surprisingly bland. The best parts of the meal were the extras: the amuse-bouche, a bit of grilled fish, and an extra desert of beautiful chocolates and cookies. But none of those were actually on the menu. I'm afraid I won't go back.

Preconcert meal as a special occasion. Can't imagine any part of the the experience going better. Gracious and attentive service, restrained noise level (I asked for a quiet table and was very happy with the result), valet service was easy and reasonably priced, and there were several unexpected treats added to the food that was brought to us. I went to this restaurant once shortly after it opened 12 years ago and it didn't leave an impression, but now Patina will be my favorite for special memorable evenings, especially after the closing of Cafe Pinot a few blocks away.

The kitchen has improved significantly. The menu had grown tired and predictable. Now there is a more inventive range of choices. The quality of the fresh ingredients remains very high. The service is still attentive and charming without being pretentious. Kevin and his staff are just superb. The only changes are the stepped-up deliciousness and diversity of menu selections.

We dined here about 5 years ago and yesterday's experience was significantly better. We did the 7 course tasting menu and every course was excellent. The asparagus, scallops, and chocolate dessert were especially good. The wine pairings were fascinating, extremely well chosen, and a great value for $75. Service was efficient and friendly. A great place to go before a symphony or theater.

I had high expectations and they were not met. I ordered the chef’s tasting menu 5 dishes and wine pairing. The small dishes were very good but not excellent as I expected. My favorites were the smoked salmon cones and the scallops. The fish dish was unremarkable, the agneloti were very nicely presented but lacked flavor. The white asparagus again very nicely presented but the sabayon sauce unremarkable. Finally the waygu ribeye was flavorful and cooked as requested medium rare but the sauce unremarkable and the feuillete was great but the patatoes were cold
The wine pairing again a bit underwhelming, the bubly sake was not good at all, the New Zeland white wine was a interesting new for me, the Beilair wine was very good and the best of all was the Sauternes

My visit to Patina was fantastic. Everything from the phone call the day before to confirm my reservation, checking to see if I was seeing a performance and had time constraints ( I did not). To leaving the restaurant during a little rain and one of the staff walked me to my ride with an umbrella.
Every single person I interacted with at Patina made me feel extremely taken care, it was the perfect ending to my treat myself day. I cannot speak more highly of the staff, just wonderful.
Then there is the food, which was the cherry on top of my dining experience at Patina. There was not a dish below superb or wine pairing I did not enjoy with it.
Cannot wait to be able to treat myself to a night at Patina again.

I was very happy to go back to Patina after all these years and find that they are at the top of their game. The staff could not have been friendlier - the food was excellent - the ambiance was beautiful - and the convenience to The Walt Disney Concert Hall cannot be beat. It was a perfect day and Patina and it's staff made it that much more special.

We had the three course meal. They brought additional appetizers which were a nice taste treat. We also received a sliced of terrific salmon, added at no charge. We both had the wage rib eye steak and it was perfection. The scallop appetizer was great also. This was a great meal before an Opera performance.
We have been here many times and it has always been a great experience.
It is expensive, no cheap alternatives here. But a great meal none the less. We will be back.

Wonderful food, superb hospitality. Patina made our anniversary so delightful. My husband and I enjoyed every bite, and every moment.
My husband had wine paring with the three course menu, and the sake which was served with Hokkaido Scallop Crudo was just amazing. Pacing of the dishes was perfect, not too slow or not too fast. We were so relaxed.
Thank you so much Patina. See you soon!
