My wife and I had been looking forward to a night out since moving to the west coast because of covid last June. This was exactly what we had been hoping for, excellent service, great ambiance and exquisite one of a kind cuisine. Our experience was absolutely perfect and we will definitely be back!

Excellent experience that was a great treat for a special celebration (anniversary dinner). Providence provided a wonderful tasting menu that paired beautiful with a fantastic wine menu. The only reason I deducted 1 star from the "value" was that after spending ~$900 on 2 tasting menus and wine pairings (1 of them premium wine pairing), they still charged $4 each for an espresso. It's not like that is a crazy addition to the bill, but it just begs the question on why even bother charging for the after-dinner coffee when you spent so much money in the restaurant already. Don't like to feel like a place is "pinching pennies" is all...

One word - 'Impressive'!!! We celebrated birthdays for 2 of our family members and we were given a 'chef table', direct view into the kitchen. Service was exceptional, very very attentive. Food presentation superb (of course quality of the food was excellent). Timing of service was right on! We were also given a customized menu w/ our names on - well done! The Matradee was very friendly and respectful - very pleasant and made our entrance and exit very welcoming and enjoyable. We spent about 3hrs to finish up our impressive 10+ course meal (don't even recall how many courses we had LOL). Every dish was thoroughly presented and explained. Very professional crew. Upon our exit, we also met the owner / Chef Mike. We'll definitely return again!

It's been a year. Drastically different menu from before, but it's very refined. If I had to pick 1 thing, the bread was super rough, very tired jaws. Everything else was excellent.

This is a once in a lifetime experience. All of the different distinct flavors were amazing. This is definitely worth saving your pennies for! Our waiter was very engaging. The Boulvardier cocktail was a great way to start the meal-best I’ve ever had. I only wish I could watch them work in the kitchen-such talent.

We got reservations on opening night, post COVID closure. It had been about 13 months since we'd been inside.

Food was spectacular. They did suffer from some service hiccups, but nothing too terrible and all taken care of. To be expected after being off for over a year.

Of note, the bread was not the customary service with multiple choices. Just a (delicious) loaf with the butter and salt. No cheese cart either.

I hope they can bring back the bread service and cheese cart soon!

All around wonderful to be back and can't wait for the next dinner here.

Never fails, has always been our favorite restaurant in LA. After being on lockdown for 3 months, we were one of the lucky ones who were able to get dressed up and leave the house and have an amazing dinner before the restaurants closed down for another 3 weeks.

Dined here on the night of reopening, and it was superb! Every course was a flavorful work of art, with service and ambiance that did not disappoint. As a restaurant owner myself, I can say the safety measures surpassed all expectations, and yet they fully retained their famous level of personal service. Perfect night out and exactly what we needed to lift our spirits.
