    I rarely go out, but when I do, I don’t mind spending a little extra money for a nicer quality restaurant. What I found at RYLA was exactly what I dream about. The service was the best service I have ever had and I work at a restaurant a block away, everyone knew everything about the menu was passionate no one was in a rush. No one had any type of attitude or bad mood. This was the most professional restaurant I have been in on the Hermosa pier. My servers recommendations for amazing.

    What a fantastic restaurant! We put in a request to sit inside as there was only outdoor seating. They had an inside table for us and a fantastic waitress!! All the staff was fabulous- the chef outdid himself with our delectable dishes and then the waitress surprised us with a tiramasu dessert at the end. They made our night very special for our family.

    Our server almost ruined our experience from the first moment. So cold and acting annoyed with us from the get go. We asked questions about a few cocktails and her tone was like we were idiots. She gave no suggestions or tried to help at all, just rushed us the whole time and there was hardly anyone at the restaurant yet. Definitely wasn’t slammed. For those prices and quality of food, you want to feel like you’re being cared for. Definitely not. Wouldn’t go back because for those prices i want a good experience not just good food.

    First time going to RYLA and they have exceeded my expectations! Though it was Valentine's Day, there was an expected wait time (even with reservation), but the wait was not long at all! Food was delicious and brought out in a timely manner. There was one slight delay between meals and so we ordered something to small to eat in the meantime, and realized on our final bill, that they had comped it. Would definitely go again to try their other stuff!

    RYLA's special Valentine's Day dinner was wonderful. Each course was innovative and nuanced. The Pork Belly salad and the blue fin tar tar over toasted rice were particularly great. The service was attentive and friendly. This was our first visit to RYLA. Now, we are eager to visit and experience the regular menu... RYLA's chef is a CHEF

    Hostess was super rude when we were 15 min late for our reservation even though we called ahead and said the same. She told us we needed be up from our table in an hour in 15 min. The waitress repeated the same comment after we placed our food order. Making us feel terrible for being a few minutes late. Food was good but not sure it outweighed the uncomfortable interactions with the staff.

    This has become our favorite South Bay restaurant, for all things that people want in a restaurant. The food is always great (favorites were the Mapo pasta and truffle fried rice), but so is the service. Our table for 4 wasn't quite ready and after 10 minutes (past our reservation time) the manager gave us each a glass of Champagne to help us deal with the inconvenience. He also dealt with the two bottles of wine I brought perfectly, putting the '13 Kistler Dutton Chardonnay I brought in a marble container to keep it at the correct temperature (roughly 55 degrees) and decanting the huge '16 Standish Relic Aussie Shiraz/Viognier to open it up for an hour until we got to it. Highly recommended!

    Cheers! Thank you so much for your review! Always a pleasure and what a gem that Dutton was!!! Can't wait to see you back soon!

    Ryla was an amazing first time experience for our dinner for 2 on Saturday. The service was fast and knowledgeable, our server was extremely knowledgeable in pairing offerings and how much food to order. We got the short ribs, lobster roll, miso ramen, and swordfish. All I can say is WOW. It was good portioned and extremely tasty. We ended with dessert (which they have a separate chef design) and it was the perfect topping to our experience. Such great food, ambiance, and service will definitely be back!

    The service was impeccable, attentive and friendly. The food was good, but the chicken karaage was incredibly salty and it tasted a bit old. The two egg Benedict’s were delicious, I just felt like it should have come with a side. The Japanese pancake was delicious! Overall it was a good experience. Thank you!
