The service was amazing. Services are nice. The most disappointed part was black truffle risotto since it needs extra $50 on top of our set menu so we were expecting an amazing dish but the rice seems not fully cooked and a little bit hard. didn't expect it at all so i don't recommend its black truffle risotto. I do recommend the sea bass. it was perfectly cooked. the food overall is good but not great. We had high expectation since the price is high and got a little bit disappointed.

This was an amazing restaurant! We got to do the tasting menu, and my fiance and I picked the different options so we were able to try each other's dishes and we were so glad we did. We wouldn't be able to do this every night - we picked this place to celebrate our anniversary - but it definitely lived up to what we were hoping it would be. Amazing service, the water menu was so cool, the food was incredible, and it felt like an intimate and super high end restaurant! Would certainly recommend for a fancy occasion!

Service was great. Most everyone was attentive. The food was very good. Portions were appropriate. We did a three course tasting menu with wine pairing. For the price, I felt like the server could have spent a little more time discussing the dish and interacting with us as clients.

I guess my biggest issue was with the wine. My husband and I are foodies and love/collect wine. We both commented that the amount of wine poured seemed inadequate. The wine pairing was an additional $45 each. At my request, the sommelier wrote down the name of one of the wines I enjoyed (although there simply wasn't a full glass to enjoy). Much to my surprise, the wine is available from an on-line wine company called Plonk for $23.75 a bottle. So why didn't I get a proper pour of wine?

One other thing, the carpets need to be cleaned.

Every dish has a nice presentation and comes with a new set of utensils.

All waiters wear a black uniform. Tonight's waiter is Thanh Trans. I saw him constantly smiling from beginning to the end during our entire dinner period. He outperformed others at the
Michelin Star in Las Vegas. It is very hard to find this kind of services.

I met Kevin Welby, general manager at Patina, again and we chatted the dinner I had in the same Patina restaurant in 2006.

Patina does a splendid job and exudes sophistication and grace. The food is exquisite. The "group" that operates this establishment is experienced with diners and settings of all types, but this surely is their flagship gourmand experience. A bit pricey (fixed price menues beginning at over $100), but well worth it. Terrific wine pairings are available.

The service was out of this world... I wondered if we had been singled out to receive the queen for a day treatment but my fellow diners who had been there before said it was standard. Absolutely made us feel very special and cared for. The "ding" was because I ordered the partridge. I could hardly cut into it. I thought my knife was dull and borrowed my friend's knife, but same deal. It was extremely tough. I gave a bite to my friend and she agreed. I would have mentioned it but didn't have the chance. I suggest you take it off the menu or figure out what went wrong.

Other than that, we had a great time and my fellow diners loved their meals.

The curse of the holiday prix fixe holiday dinner - in this case NYE. Great table overlooking the kitchen. Service very apprehensive- a new employee perhaps? For the price, none of the six courses stood out as worth the $$.

We were four people at a crowded New Years eve dinner, and we had a wonderful experience. The decor was beautiful, service excellent, food very imaginative and artfully presented. The live band was a nice touch, but might have been toned down a bit.
Among the very best restaurant experiences I have had.

From the moment we walked in until the moment we left we felt as though we were the only people in the restaurant. Absolutely impeccable service. The staff was knowledgeable about the menu and so incredibly attentive. We went to Patina after seeing a show at the Ahmanson. We were also celebrating a birthday. At the end of the meal, they brought us the most impressive birthday dessert and a hand written note. It was such a fantastic experience.

This restaurant is an elegant gem. I want to particularly compliment Stephanie; her excellent manner on the phone and peaceful greeting at the hostess desk.

Patina was a major disappointment. The food is mediocre and for that price is should be a lot better. My chicken jidori was two square pieces with absolutely NO taste at all. It was clearly cooked sous vide (slow simmer) but with no added flavorings. Surely the chef could add a nice carbohydrate, otherwise all I had was a square chicken!! My friend's seabream was very tasty and our dessert of a cookie with peach jam on top and meringue on top of that was what I would expect of a culinary art student studying pastries. Very amateurish. I would never come here again.

I have always enjoyed dining at Patina. The food was exceptional as usual. The three course meals were quite sufficient given our theatre performance at 6:30 pm.

The service was good, but not exceptional. Usually the servers clean the table cloth once crumbs are seen, but no one noticed the crumbs from my son and no one came to clean them off.

The cheese cart was terrific with a wonderful variety of international choices and the fig bread made the cheeses even better.

My wife and I were VERY impressed with Patina. We had an early dinner there following a Sunday matinee at The Disney Hall. The staff were friendly and engaging from the moment we walked in. We had a couple of great cocktails and very much enjoyed reading your "Water List!" Every morsel of food that arrived at our table, from the bread tray through dessert and coffee were just exquisite. I had the venison and my wife had the cod, both of which were scrumptious. We will definitely be back and have already told several of our fiends about Patina.

The chef’s tasting menu was good, but nothing spectacular. The service was outstanding, as you would expect from an upscale restaurant.
If you are a water connoisseur, you should definitely check the restaurant out, since their water menu is longer than the wine list. They carry everything, from $0 LA tap water to a $150 bottle of glacier water from the North Pole, which is sweet AND smooth, according to the water description.
In the end, we opted for a $10 bottle of Smart water, since we felt like our intelligence was being questioned by that water menu...
Bon appétit!
