Pricey. Pushy wine list. Good service. Only choice is two fixed price menus. Closest restaurant to Disney concert hall. Portions were small for the money.

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.

We travelled from Australia to LA, and very much enjoyed this great restaurant. The staff were wonderful, and the surprises around every corner are just terrific. I can't wait to come back to LA to enjoy it all again.

We’ve had $150 7 courses tasting menu and the food was very mediocre, service was very slow. If you have $150 to spend on a fine dining, go to Melisse or Providence, you’ll get 10x better qualify of food and service. Trust me very disappointed experience.

Fantastic LA restaurant. We came here for our son's USC post graduation dinner. Service was impeccable, modern, yet tastefully done interior, creative menu. Pace can be a bit slow, but we definitely enjoyed the experience. On the pricey side, but well worth it for special occasions. Highly recommended!

Food was pretty good but we went since we were going to a concert at the Disney Hall where the restaurant is located. I NEVER write reviews but...We went early at 5:00 and sat at the bar until 5:30 then took our table.
The concert was at 7:30 and from 5:30 until 7:00 we were not served, even though we asked them multiple times and everyone who sat with and after us were served.
The portions were small and reminded me of an old joke about a French restaurant, the French waiter asks " well sir, how did you find your food" the guy responds"easy it was under the parsley", and this was for $105 to $140 per person prix fixed meal!!
There some really wonderful restaurants close by the theater and I would urge you to at one of them where they are good and attentive and appreciate your business.
PS- in all fairness the bartender was fantastic, friendly, knowledgable and great

Patina remains as one of the very best high end restaurants in Los Angeles. The decor and ambience is quiet and soothing, the food is always excellent, and the service is impeccable but very friendly and welcoming. Terrific for a long and leisurely gourmet meal, but since it is located at Disney Hall and the staff is quite accustomed to patrons going to the symphony, the opera, or a play, Patina is also a great choice for pre or post performance meals. The new Spring menu is outstanding.

We arrived at 515pm. Food was so slow coming out that we had yet to be served the main course as of 645. We had to ask for the check so we wouldn’t miss the show. I think they either ran out of food or stopped making us a priority because we weren’t ordering enough alcohol. Anyways, they didn’t charge us for food after we complained, so that was good. Never again. Weird disappointing experience.

One of the best dining experiences of my life! I have been to some of the best restaurants in New York, Paris, London and Los Angeles, but few come to the level that I experienced at Patina's! An outstanding group of servers that I would experience again and again! Great food, great people, and great treatment!

Patina is, in my mind, at this time, the top restaurant in Los Angeles. It is comparable only to other multi Michelin starred restaurants around the world. There is a new chef who returns the cuisine to European/American greatness. The front of the house is friendly, knowledgeable, and provide perfect service. Carlos the bread server is still there (many other staff have changed) providing warmth in bread and personality. The new staff is excellent.
To experience Patina at it fullest try come for a long dining session, coming just for a pre-performance meal is very good, but you miss the peak experience that it can provide. Our most recent dinner was after a Matinee at the music center, we left about 10 PM, very satisfied.

Fantastic food and impeccable service. The tone is set when the water sommelier presents the water menu. It's that kind of place. Every bite is exquisite, and, in fact, the waters are amazing. Price makes this a special occasion place to dine. With wine and coffee and the three-course prix fixe, count on $200 per person.

Patina was a shambles. Two orders arrived by mistake. By the time they had been corrected, other diners were finished. My entree, a chicken dish, arrived tepid on the outside and cool on the inside. Had to almost beg to have wine served with appetizer. Dover Sole a disaster, nothing but an unpleasant mustard taste. This restaurant requires an expensive prix fixe three course meal. Many these days do NOT want desserts. Clearly the business plan is to give comfort to the bottom line, not the patron. Patina does NOT deserve to occupy this iconic space the Disney Hall.
