When you go to a restaurant of this (supposed) caliber and they're charging a pretty penny for that privilege, the expectation of a fabulous meal is expected.

The main course was extremely salty, and I'm not someone sensitive to that. My dining partner thought the same. That's an epic fail.

On the plus side, service good and accommodating and other small courses tasty. However, I would never go back or recommend this restaurant. For these prices, there are lots of other choices that nail the food and make you feel like, yeah, totally worth the price.

Good service but portions were very small and the quality of the food did not justify the price.

Great place to go before a show at the Disney Hall. Very professional, attentive staff. Top notch food and drink. A bit pricey - wife and I dropped over $400 for a basic dinner of very small portions. But, hey, it was our anniversary, and I did not have to worry about falling asleep during the performance from being too full!

The food was excellent (ribeye and scallop entrees,) and the service was even better.
Perfect location for Disney Concert Hall and so nice to be in a quiet restaurant for a change.

The thing that stands out at Patina is the service. From the General Manager opening the front door for us to all the various servers, you are made to feel like you are only diners in the restaurant. The staff are all professionals. The food is definitely pricey but the quality is outstanding. Just a great dining experience!

Really exceptional experience all around, from the maitre d's greeting to the service to the food. Here is a restaurant that understands that a fine dining experience goes beyond the quality of the food, which, in and of itself was the finest I have experienced in over a decade of dining in DTLA.

Everything was fantastic. We were stuck in traffic and got there 45 minutes late and only an hour before the play at the Mark Taper Forum nearby. They made everything work perfectly. Food, service, ambiance was outstanding. I would give it my highest recommendation.

My husband and I had the Chef’s Tasting Menu with wine pairing and we were not disappointed!! It was wonderful! Every morsel was perfectly prepared with flavors being distinct yet blending together exquisitely. Kudos to the sommelier who did a superb job of selecting wines that paired beautifully, complimenting each dish and never overwhelming the flavors.

Our waitperson, Tamar, was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. The rest of the wait staff were also excellent. Their presence added to the lovely dining experience.

This was our first and definitely not our last time dining at Patina!

Superb dining. Excellent service. Notable were the hamachi & scallop crudo, the halibut, and the risotto with black truffle. Portions are small and the menu could use a few additions. But you can’t do better if you’re going to a concert next door.

For the amount of money charged for the meal, I felt I was being short changed in the portion size! The wine list in my opinion was over the top pricewise for the type of wines offered . I dine downtown often and have never run into a wine list quite like this value wise.
The service was very good, , But did not make up for the rest.

We enjoyed a delayed Valentine's Day on 2/15/20 at Patina with the Chef's Tasting Menu (and wine pairings.) Both food and wines were simply delicious. Scallop & Hamachi Crudo stood out as wonderfully balanced. Trout was cooked to perfection, melted in your mouth - a true taste of heaven. The Bordelaise with the Wagyu Ribeye was ridiculously well made, flavorful and balanced the richness of the beef brilliantly. I could not have asked for a better meal. (Caveat - I chose a mushroom cavatelli that was rich and layered in earthiness, without regret. However, I might need to return, as the risotto with black truffle was served to our neighbors, and we sat trying not to drool as the Maitre D shaved the most generous blanket of black truffle over their risotto. Napkin, please!) Patina's decor is unpretentious, but beautifully reflects the Disney Concert Hall architecture nicely. The staff were friendly, approachable and very attentive. While Patina is not for the everyday dining experience for most - at least not for anyone whose budget is anything close to mine - it is a destination any discerning palate would be enriched to experience, regardless of how long you save. Bravissimo, and thanks!

Tom and all of his colleagues served us very well...always attentive to us, without our needing to ask for their attention to fine dining details.

And the sophisticated and tongue-tantalizing cuisine from the chef(s) ... well I have not found finer in Los Angeles.

However, the strawberry dessert was somewhat dry for our tastes, so we wouldn't order that again.

Came in after the pre-symphony rush. Very few busy tables, quiet and staff were good, but a bit casual. The food was good, but not hot, barely warm. Would I rush back? Not based on this particular dinner, but I like Patina, so perhaps this was just what happens once the rush of the symphony crowd head upstairs to the show.

Everything was wonderful. The food presentation was beautiful and taste didn’t disappoint. Only complaint is and it maybe Open Table advertised incorrectly but we chose to go to Patina since it showed up for free corkage and to dust off our wine. We were charged $30 for corkage. The restaurant interior design seemed small and very simple than I remember. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall, I think it was very good choice to celebrate my friend’s Birthday.

The food is excellent. However, one person in our party wanted a green salad; she was unable to get a salad with goat cheese, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. The communication about the salad was a comedy of errors.

Tutto bene. Cibo ottimo e ben presentato. Uno appunto di rilievo la figura del maitre decisamente poco cordiale, molto sbrigativa e assai poco sorridente. Peccato. Un minimo di gentilezza in più avrebbe certamente fatto una sostanziale differenza.

The staff, under the guidance of Mr. Welby, is OUTSTANDING. Chef Andrea Roller's cuisine is exquisite. Patina makes for a memorable experience-culinary, artistic, beautiful and surreal. It's as if we were unsuspectingly an integral part of some spectacular performance from the moment we were cordially greeted at the door. This is a hidden gem, nestled befittingly in an architectural masterpiece.
