We had such a nice dinner here. The service is attentive and helpful, upscale without being pretentious. The wine tasting paired with each course was a really nice touch.

The convenience of going there before the opera can't be beat. The valet is $8.00 and you walk one block to the Dorothy Chandler after dinner. The service was fabulous and decor beautiful. The food presentation was also lovely, but I had fish for the main course and it was overcooked and not tasty. It's a prex fixe menu, which was over $100.00/person, so be prepared.

The most you can pay for a meal in LA. Not the best food. Maybe the worst service. At one point I actually turned to my wife and asked if we did something wrong. They forgot our food and tried to pretend they didn’t. We were there for three hours. Everyone in ththe restaurant looked bored. The food was underwhelming for the price. Skip it.

Overall, it was an amazing experience. The food was exquisite. Martin was a gracious manager and all my special request were taken care of. The service was excellent. And finally, Linda, our sommelier, was wonderful and very knowledgeable. The 2001 Dauvissat Chablis Premier Cru was the hit of the night. Right behind that was the 2010 BDX Fluery. It was a night to remember.

Outstanding restaurant in every way. Every detail, every person and every plate had something special. Most of all, the precise but casual and convivial attitude of the staff, from the chef down to the junior waiter was superb. Our visit and meal was a master demonstration in the art of living and enjoying it; a high point of civilization, and a beacon of elegance and refinement. Excellent.

 (Toronto)·Dined on February 8, 2018

3-course meal, complete with amuse-bouche and petit four, was excellent. Started with hamachi/scallop/octopus & Dungeness crab, both had an explosion of flavours. The wagyu beef was plated beautifully and all items of this course were amazing and were balanced well, not just in flavour, but also texture. Ivory and rose desserts were just the right amount of sweetness and of intensity of flavours. Great atmosphere and perfect just before the concert. Would return!

This is definitely the best restaurant in LA in my opinion.
Everything from the caviar service to the last little sweet treats at the end was spectacular. Our waiter, Mario, made so many excellent recommendations starting with the great water from Denmark through many of the wines by the glass and he recommended the sweet breads. I thought it was one of the most flavorful and unique presentations of sweetbreads I have had in a while. They definitely made our 32nd wedding anniversary celebration special. We cannot wait to return!

What a wonderful experience through and through. The food is thoughtfully infused with flavors and true culinary passion without being pretentious. The staff all serve a vital and seamless role in your dining experience. Each member brings knowledge and a desire to make sure your experience is just perfect. Celebrating my husbands birthday at Patina was such a delight. And to top it off, with the birthday dessert arrived a hand written note from the talented chef. Just a beautiful evening!!! We will be back. (Rose pana cotta with saffron sorbet is something I’ll never forget! Nostalgic for me and just emotionally moving)

This was only my second time dining at Patina and it was even more memorable. The service was prompt but confused. We were served the wrong course and wine during our meal, both were meant for other patrons.
The food was delicious and quite filling despite the comparatively small portions. The wine was wonderful, yay Napa. I was especially pleased with the aesthetics and decor, including the acoustics. Finally, a dining experience where we could hear each other and converse.
The occasion was my mother's birthday and the pre-concert meal was wonderful. Thank you for not rushing us.

Here's the thing. I came here with my boyfriend to celebrate the end of our law school semester. I realize that the regular clientele at this restaurant is significantly older than us, however, we were well dressed and certainly could afford the meal that we were ordering. That did not keep the server from treating us as welcome customers and did not provide us with the same charming service as others on tables near us. For example, our dishes were not explained to us in the same detail, he made snarky comments regarding our ordering choices and I did not find his condescending banter with my boyfriend amusing. The food was good, even interesting, but I think that in this economy and with so many people choosing not to dine at a restaurant where a meal is $200 flat, I would suggest a place that treats you better.

We were warmly greeted and taken to our seat immediately. The decor is modern sparse but the wood walls warm up the interior. We visit Patina usually just for special occasions because of the price, but when Dine LA offered 6 courses for the price of 3, we had to go. Each course was delicious, as was the Amuse-Bouche that started everything off. I'm old enough to have tried many wines and know what I like, but elected to go with the recommended pairing. It was an excellent choice and the wines selected by the Somm, some of which were from California, paired perfectly with the food, each enhancing the other. It was a great dining experience, still expensive, but well worth it. Looking forward to returning.

Patina is excellent. The service is superb, very high-touch. Christina the sommelier is amazing, very knowledgable but warm and open, not at all snooty like some can be. The food was delicious - we went for Dine LA so were able to try many different dishes. The wine list is very expensive, nearly all over $100 per bottle. Overall, would definitely come back for a special occasion.

We were impressed with the sommelier and the wine pairings she came up with. She was attentive and passionate about what she does.

Out of the six course menu, more than half of the dishes were stellar. Make sure you have plenty of time. Our meal took about 2.5 hours.

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.
