    Such a cute place to have brunch but we didn’t like the upstairs tables because you had to sit on the floor but the cushions they provided had to be stacked in pairs to be tall enough. So we asked to be moved downstairs to a table and the hosts and servers were very nice about it. The fish was excellent and so was the ceviche, they put passionfruit in it which was such a bright burst of flavor. A nice pop up place at the grove.

    Literally the cutest boho chic pop up restaurant to go to right now in LA. It is a little on the pricey side but totally worth it especially since you can take the cutest photos there. Also don't forget a jacket it does get cold up there!

    This is a very open and spread out area that was much appreciated especially during COVID. I specifically requested the upstairs outdoor seating area because people online hinted that you need to request it. The cushions were comfortable, the area was clean, and the view of the Grove during sunset was spectacular. Delicious food & drinks, but I'd say over priced (you are paying for the atmosphere). Their pear & walnut salad is tasty, the Midnight Garden drink was incredible, and the Sauvignon Blanc is my new favorite. At $19/glass though I think I will just buy the bottle. Staff was kind and attentive. I will be back for another special occasion someday.

    Very cute outdoor picnic set up! The food was solid but not great, very simple. The drinks were great! Would go for the ambiance and experience.

    Such a cute concept. Food and drinks were tasty. Our server was a bit lackluster as if he didn’t want to be there which took away from the experience. However I would still recommend people to try it out because everything else was great!!

    The food was excellent. My server was a doll. The only problem I had was where I was sat. So I was sold on upstairs from an advertisement on Instagram. I made the reservation but didn’t specify that I wanted to be upstairs. I asked the host what was up with that and was told I had to be specific about that when making the reservation, but was also told even if I did put that in the reservation it’s not guaranteed that I would be able to sit up there. That absolutely makes no sense. Therefore I will not be returning to this pop up. But appreciate the meal. Thanks.

    My fiancé and I went out to celebrate her birthday. We had never been to Picnic Society before and immediately fell in love with the ambiance and concept of the restaurant. We were escorted to the upstairs patio where we sat on pillows by a low table on artificial grass. Our server, Sam, was wonderfully helpful going through the menu and making recommendations. I had the burger with caramelized onions and my fiancé had the lobster roll. Both melted in our mouths along with our wine. Even after we were too full to eat Sam surprised us with a little dessert to celebrate our evening. It was a truly wonderful experience. We will definitely visit again soon!

    It was my daughter’s 16th bday and we drove up from Newport Beach with a small group to surprise her for lunch. The MAJOR complaint was that the actual “picnic” section was closed AND that was not stated anywhere on the reservation....it TRULY was a bummer as the 6 girls specifically chose this restaurant based on the cute/bohemian OUTDOOR picnic area on the roof....if you’re showing pictures of the picnic eating area, you should let everyone know it is closed at this time - kind of a bait and switch!

    Do not recommend. Much better options within The Grove.. Upon arrival the host/waiter stated duration they only had large parties upstairs. Upon going to the restroom we saw that was a lie and there were many open tables upstairs but I assume they wanted people actually seated on the main level to give the appearance of having Food was ok but they brought my entree, then my appetizer 2 min later and my husbands entree 15 min later. We specifically requested an upstairs table and confirmed in person 2 weeks before. Our server Hannah was pleasant. To cap things off they don’t validate parking which seems like a slap when you’ve paid >$150 for dinner in a mall.

    The sausage rolls were amazing. The rest very good (nicoise salad, lobster roll, caprese salad roll) but fairly standard LA fare. Could do with at least a couple of more individual items on the menu.

    Food was mostly amazing but it was definitely a loose interpretation of a Panzanella salad. The cushioned seating, while increasingly uncomfortable as the night went on, is very cool. Service exemplary. Super efficient, friendly and informed.
