My son was very keen to dine at Shaquille’s since we are from Australia and he is a massive fan. The booking was easy, the staff were exemplary, so extraordinarily helpful and efficient and friendly. We could not have had a better experience and to cap it off the food was fabulous Thank you

Great food and great service. Good for a relaxed date night or with friends. Never had a bad dish there, 3 for 3. Great apps to share and every main dish brings food envy.

The cost of a whole chicken was RIDICULOUS!! Especially with no sides included ! The noodles on the Mac and cheese could’ve cooked longer, and the collard greens well let’s just say, no seasoning and the salt and pepper provided was too thick.....not cracked well at all!

I went here for my birthday. The food was great and I love the “South of the boarder” drink. It is now one of my favorite drinks. Very nice People working at Shaquille’s . I really enjoyed myself.

Was loud for me. Had a difficult time trying to talk or hear. Food was outstanding, service was superb and friendly. We had a great time. Will be going back. Probably wait till the playoffs or the off season.

Not very good. Took some family from out of town. Huge Lakers fan. Food was disappointing. Hostesses were the bright spot. They held our table until our party arrived. Good to see minority staff. Food could have been better.

Amazing, Shaquille’s included Impossible Burgers on the menu. It was prepared with perfection, with an unbelievably good taste. Salad and fries were great. Thank you for including this specialty on your menu. And your Team, from check in, to Table Service was equivalent to Restaurants costing much much more!

I wasn’t blown away by anything here. It was casual fine dining with a very limited menu. I thought this place would be more fun but it was pretty basic. With all of the other options at LA Live, there is really no reason to eat here. Food was fine, server was nice, I guess we just expected more.

Everything was delicious. The brisket grilled cheese is to die for. This is my second time within a 2 week period and I would definitely go back. Servings are big enough to share and don't forget to get the pepper biscuits with the bacon jam. Also the drinks are really good.

If a restaurant is going to charge $30 for 4 pieces of fried chicken, it better be amazing. It wasn’t here. Server was great. Speed of food was too fast. I say this because my chicken was all pink. So it was undercooked. It was far from being “fried”. Nothing crispy. Soggy. The best part of my meal was the tortilla soup (very spicy) and the fries. Mac & cheese was OK. Drinks were not strong. It was a $100.00 meal for 2 people. No dessert. I won’t be returning.
