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.

Patina’s at Disney Concert Hall is the best 5* I’ve had the pleasure to eat anywhere in the US including NYC, Boston and San Francisco. Amazing food, flavors, freshness, plating. Awesome and exceptional staff and service. Worth the price. Makes you feel special and remembers you after your first visit.

Patina was delicious as always and still has by far the best ambiance of any restaurant in Los Angeles if you want a quiet meal in a beautiful setting.

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!

An awesome experience. While a lot of Joachim Splichal's empire can be hit and miss - especially in service - patine still shines in both exceptional food and impeccable service.
It did get a little slow in the end, the food isn't the most innovative, and the prices are high - but overall this remains a delightful experience in LA, and downtown.

Beyond incredible. One of the best fine dining experiences in the country and I’m just sorry that we had theatre tickets which forced us to leave too soon. Each course was impeccably prepared and presented and the service was attentive, gracious and perfect.
Two of us had the wine pairings and it was the right decision. The price is not for the faint of heart, but it was worth every penny

One of the most fantastic meals ever! From the stellar and well paced service to incredible food and wine pairings, this was a uniquely wonderful and memorable experience! It was the most I’ve ever paid for a meal for two (over $400 including tip) and worth nearly every penny! The ultimate special occasion destination restaurant - in the Walt Disney Concert Hall building so most convenient for the concert we attended immediately afterwards.

I originally had a reservation for 2 and I added one guest the restaurant quickly and gracefully accommodated us even when it looked pretty full I am guessing for dining before the show. The food was outstanding and the service even better. The server was attentive but not intrusive making sure we knew what we receiving when you get the extra goodies from the chef. I truly enjoyed all the staff being very friendly and quick to answer my questions and my I say they are quite knowledgeable. I spoke my language and they kindly responded to me. The food was a wonderful experience I truly enjoyed all the flavors from the appetizer scallop crudo, wagyu beef and the delicious creme brulee truly outstanding.

Unfortunately , we had to wait 45 min for our entrees. It was getting very close to to the 8 pm and we had tickets to the concert. We had to leave without dessert. Nobody came to apologize, they just started to avoid our table and not making any eye contact. The food was excellent, but the overall experience was ruined for us. It was very unfortunate! We came to LA for my birthday weekend to have a nice dinner and listen to a wonderful music. Galina Shikhman

Food was good, presentation gorgeous, but there was no extraordinary flavors. What we loved the most was the amuse bouche, the bread basket and the tea at the end. We ordered the chef menu of 6 dishes. Food was obviously of great quality but is not revolutionary.
I really liked the water menu.
The service was outstanding, the ambiance was great too.
For 2 people, without alcoholic beverages we paid over 500. So kinda pricey.
Overall, it is an experience that you should have at least once. So I would recommend it, but probably we won't come back.

My son loves the hand written note from chef for his birthday. He wants to frame it and hang in his room.

Always a delicious, creative and wonderful meal. Outstanding service. Friday evening the restaurant was quite crowded. The busiest we’ve seen it in years. The service was still excellent, but the kitchen was slower than usual. They did bring us and many other guests an extra course at no charge. In view of the crowd, a few of the tables were re-configured and we had a small table for two.

I was in LA for work and decided to go to the symphony and was looking for a dinner that would match the quality of the music. Patina is superb. The food is beautifully presented, the flavors fresh and original and much thought was given to the wine pairings for the prix-fixe menu. As a career woman who travels for work, one of my pet peeves is to be seated in a sup-par area when dining alone (in NY, I received vastly different treatment at an otherwise lovely restaurant when alone one week and a week later when dining with my husband). As such, it was a pleasure to be treated so well when eating solo at Patina. Bravo Patina- please continue to create culinary magic prior to the delights of the LA Phil!

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.
