We appreciated that the chef allowed us to order a la carte due to theatre tickets, instead of the 3 or 5-course meal. There were not other choices and we were on a tight schedule. Perhaps that affected the dishes. The entrees were OK, not great. I ordered the chicken and it was very bland. Same with my husband's lamb. It was difficult to park, as the valet was moved due to a street fair that blocked off the entrance. It took longer to find it and we had less time for dinner. We were not told that we needed a validation from the restaurant either by the valet or the wait staff. As a result, when we got our car after the performance, we had to pay $20 instead of $8. The restaurant was closed, so it was not possible to get a validation. Even our receipt from the restaurant was not enough to provide a valet discount.

I been going to Patina on and off for 20 years but my recent visit revealed an experience that was only a shell of its former self Food was just okay. Not the same Patina quality and innovation of years past where the restaurant was inspired fine dining. The service was horrible. Extremely inattentive servers who appeared to be short staffed and busy running around the dining room. I had made it clear that we were going to a performance at Disney Concert Hall and they struggled to get us out just in time but we waited long intervals between courses. Course came out without any server descriptions. I noticed special attention at others tables with crumbing the tables and offering coffee and tea which our table was never offered. It could have helped make the long wait for a pre made dessert a little more tolerable. Patina’s glory days with Joachim, Theo Schoenneger or Tony Esnault capably at the culinary helm are long gone.

Does Patina really need another rave review? It's consistently fabulous. We had the pre-theater tasting menu. The portions were right, the tastes were unique, the service was incredible. We told them we wanted to hear a talk before the opera and they got us out on time without our feeling rushed. And it was so quiet. Of course all this comes at a price, but for a special occasion it's well worth it.

From start to finish, I had an absolutely incredible time at Patina. I spent over four hours here! Everyone was just remarkable, attentive, and so polite. The food was just unbelievably good. I loved how wine-centric and intimate the restaurant was, as well. It may sound crazy to some, but I’d rather eat at Patina than n/naka (yep, I said it). For everything you get, it’d be hard to argue that Patina has reached the grand dame status of LA, fully deserving their Michelin star.

We went during the DineLA week. It was $95 per person, be careful, there are lots of supplement charges and the server did not explain on the menu at all. The bill ends up for $400 for two person. The foods are average. Not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

WILL NEVER go back again.

Service was very good. Unfortunately can't say the same for the food. The tasting menus offered few choices. My wife returned her choice without eating it; I finished mine but I've had a lot better. Very disappointing experience. Won't be returning, won't be recommending it to friends.

I can only say awesome things about Patina. My husband and I drive from San Diego twice a year to eat at patina. My birthday in July, his birthday in December! The ambience, the service and the food, are spectacular. The bread is divine. And each course out does the next one. My main course of veal was delicious, and my husbands Wagu beef was exquisite. The peach tart that had St. Germain and hazelnuts in the crust… Heavenly. Charles our server is wonderful. And Martin, who remembers us from year to year is always a delight. Don’t miss this spectacular and special restaurant. You wont be sorry.

In fairness, the season for Disney Hall is over and the restaurant was empty.
We have enjoyed many fine meals at the restaurant, but this time, that was not the case. The service was outstanding, as always.

My guess is that the sauces had been prepared in advance, the vegetables were not fresh as usual.

Perhaps, there might be some special off season pricing if at this point of time, the kitchen is short staffed.

Been a Patina fan for the past 10 years. I should have known something was up after I was seated. All new staff at a fine dining facility should have sent me a signal. We (the 4 of us) ordered the 3 course tasting. One with an additional appetizer. Two mains had supplemental charges and the other two had supplemental charges as well. Wine was $285 which was fair.

Service was awful. Never asked id we wanted coffee. Server was more concerned about going home that the customer. Check was $1192. Breakdown made no sense. Thinking of contacting credit card company to dispute.

Will NEVER go back

We were next door at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for an afternoon opera and just walked over for dinner. Not only is the food and service excellent, one doesn't even have to move ones car! it is only a few hundred yards from the music center to Patina.

We had the 3 course menu (I had veal, my wife had Cod, and our daughter had Dover Sole). everyone thought that their food was excellent. The first courses we very creative, and the deserts were quite good.

The wine list is good with selections in many price ranges. We had the Patina Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Both are good wines at reasonable prices. They are made by Au Bon Climant. If you want a more esoteric wine there are plenty of selections on the wine list.

Though Patina is rather pricey, it is worth it.

Patina Restaurant is a considerable place for dinner and the Walt Disney Concert Hall is a resplendent place for a show. Valet parking, is on the north side of Grand Avenue, in front of the Concert Hall. Google Maps has you on the wrong side of the street, when taking a left on to W 2nd St from S Olive St east bound. Make sure, if you are east bound on S Olive St, you do not make a left on 2nd St. If you do, you'll wind up on the wrong side of the road, separated by two double yellow lines, staring at gridlock in front of you, and cynically glancing, across the street, at the valet parking podium umbrella. So, when coming from the west on S Olive St, that's east bound on S Olive St, make a left on 1st Street, then, make a left on Grand. Half a block on the right is valet parking for $8.00, 'if' you are attending an event that evening at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Patina never lets us down. If we are going to the Music Center and don't have time or inclination to try a new, more adventurous restaurant, we choose Patina. It's a great place to have an adult meal, made with high quality ingredients, prepared by a competent chef and served without pretension. It's quiet and everyone on the staff is kind and caring. Yes, it's pricey and yes, it's worth it.
