Went here for the Dine LA 6 course menu. Dine LA menu was $95 per person. I have to say that both food and service were excellent. I added the wine pairing with dinner and the sommelier was both friendly and very informative on describing the wine and why it pairs well with the food. They also have a great cheese cart. I would recommend and return.

Always a pleasant experience dining at Patina. We were very happy that the Chef accommodated my wife’s request for a course substitution in the DineLA menu – she is pregnant and could not eat seafood crudo and was instead served cooked fish. They also very nicely cooked her wagyu to her desired temperature. The DineLa menu was a good one, loved all the courses and wine pairing. The amuse bouche, bon bons at the end are always a nice (and appreciated) touch. The coffee at the end was very good too.

We opted for the Dine LA 4 course menu. Each course was inventive, perfectly sized and delicious. The service was impeccable, we especially loved the sommelier's description of the wines -- down-to-earth and enthusiastic. We happened to catch an evening when Disney Hall was dark, so it was very quiet and relaxed. Would highly recommend Patina, very impressive.

Booked this restaurant for New Year’s Eve dinner but it was probably the most disappointing meal I have had in 2017. The 8 courses tasting menu dishes left the table the way it came. Every single dish is wrong.
Waited one hour to get to our first dish. Spent 3 hours to finish four dishes. Decided not to go on with the remaining courses.

Cena familiar de fin de año. Menú de degustación de 8 tiempos es un execeso. Demasiados sabores y tipos de platillos. El servicio lo peor. Nos trajeron el tercer tiempo como primero, nos llevaron la cortesía de llegada hasta el cuarto tiempo, y por qué lo pedimos. El vino no lo dejan en la mesa, se lo lleva el somelier, y de pronto te dicen que ya se acabo pero no te enseñan la botella vacía. Para terminar, al pagar la cuenta, que fue muy cara por cierto, el capitán primero se equivocó con la cuenta, marcaba pagar más de lo que consumimos, después cuando por fin trajo la correcta se lleva la TDC para cobrar y me regresa la de otro cliente. No sabía donde estaba la mía. Un total desastre. Restaurante caro y malo. De principio a fin.

Our dinner at Patina was exceptional in virtually every aspect of the word. Every employee we met was polite, and genial. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of all the dishes we had, and made sure everything was to our liking. The quiet and comfortable ambiance allowed my party to enjoy our night to its extent. At first I was a bit concerned about how the staff would accommodate my daughter's vegan diet, but we were pleasantly surprised that everyone made sure that all her dishes were vegan-friendly. I would recommend the sweetbread and the patina 2015 merlot. Overall, we had a very enjoyable experience here and will definitely come again in the future.

Had the 6-course tasting menu with wine pairings. Each course was spectacular both in taste and presentation. They also added a series of amuse bouches that were excellent. My wife and I had most of the same courses, but the sommelier often gave us different wines to pair which gave us the chance to have some variety along the way. Even the breads were awesome. Overall, a fantastic experience, and started early enough that we still had time to make it to our concert.

The food, was wonderful. Each dish was absolutely delicious and beautiful in the presentation. But what really made the evening into a very special memory for us was Patina's wonderful staff. Brian guided us through the menu & orchestrated the timing & educated us on the delights perfectly. Christine paired the wines for us & picked wonderful & interesting choices for our 6-course meal. Martin & Mila made sure everything went wonderfully. We applaud the Chefs for the food & thank them for the delightful amuse bouche which started our adventure. Each staff member who attended our table was kind & knowledgeable. Of special note was the Japanese kinmedai. Which was exquisite we were delighted with the frozen foie gras. We want to compliment the Chef's culinary creativity.

The service at Patina was wonderful. My friend and I met up over Thanksgiving weekend and decided to dine there and was not let down. The waiters catered to every need and one even took notice of my friend's liking towards the fig bread and brought out more, fresh from the kitchen and complimentary. The food was sometimes salty, but overall had a great taste. Thank you!

Our group of five absolutely LOVED our Thanksgiving dinner! Three had turkey, one beef and one salmon. All plates were perfectly prepared and presented exquisitely, especially the petite won ton cone shape salmon amuse bouche and the crab appetizer! The berry bread was wonderful and the bread pudding, pumpkin pie and cheese plate were delicious! But it didn’t end there, the Chef sent us two plates filled with chocolate bon bons, mini berry tarts and sugar berry candies, yummy!

What made the evening even more delightful and fun was Brian! BRIAN IS THE BEST! He’s warm, very funny and made excellent recommendations from the main course to our bottle water (Voss and Iskilde). Have Brian show you/tell you about Iskilde and do a tasting of both. Another plus was meeting Martin, the water sommelier and manager! Also a very fun and lovely person who we realized we had seen on TV!

If you’re looking for a place with excellent food and a good vibe, you have go to Patina!

Thank you all at Patina for working on Thanksgiving and making our family Thanksgiving dinner a very special and fun one! We’ll be back!

Dinner for four on Thanksgiving. Very nice 4 course, service was pretty solid for a major holiday, the bread guy saved the day because we were starving!!! the beef wagyu was simply outrageous but the turkey was also moist and plentiful. No disappointments at all, worth the drive to downtown because no to much traffic.

Patina is excellent in every respect. The food was unusual and very interesting. The wine list, though full of pricey wines, also had some more reasonably priced selections. The service was attentive without being obtrusive, the sommelier always poured the wine before we had finished our glasses. Also, as we were drinking white wine, I particularly liked that the wine was at the right temperature, and not so cold as to kill the flavor and the nose! The restaurant is very quiet, which for us is a real pleasure. It is located in the Disney hall, and as we had been to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, it was just a couple hundred yards and we didn't have to move the car.

We arrived early and were greeted. This place has excellent service through and through. We did notify the server that we had a 7:30 opera at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. We barely made it out in time for the opera as we were waiting on desert at the end. The sommelier was excellent and accommodating. Our main beef course was overcooked. It seems the server mixed up mine with another in our party. He also ordered beef and asked for well done, while I/we ordered medium rare.

The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. We especially enjoyed the special 6-course tasting menu, recomended by Kurtis. A very friendly welcoming place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. All personnel were very well trained, accommodating and helpful (all done with a smile). Everything was handled with efficiency and attention to every detail was given. Food was delicious and the view was wonderful while dining. Thanks for doing such an outstanding job to our anniversary so memoriable and pleasurable.
