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!

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.

Ordered the filet cooked medium. It came out extra well done. Would have sent it back but not enough time before needing to leave for a concert. Ordered a kir royale (champagne with the liquor chambord added). Came back with champagne and grapefruit juice. Seems that this restaurant would be great for just burgers/sandwiches and beer but didn't seem up to par for high end menu items. Huge fan of Shaquille the basketball player but unfortunately not of the restaurant.

We really enjoyed our experience. The staff was fantastic - from the hostess we met as we entered to our amazing waiter (Prince), to the people who brought the food to our table. Everyone was attentive, engaged and friendly. The food was delicious! Prince made some great suggestions and we had fun deciding what we would each have so we could try a bunch of things. Each item, the signature deviled eggs, Shaquille's take on a Cobb salad, the fried Chicken, the shrimp and grits, even the french fries, had complex and interesting flavors. I definitely recommend this place for your next visit to LA Live.

Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. Once seated it was hard to hear/communicate with the server due to music being so loud. We ordered the Spinach Dip and it was cold, the only thing warm was the small metal pot it came in. For Dinner we ordered 2 Cobb salads. One salad came with 2 small strips of chicken, while the other had a full breast of Chicken cut in strips. I brought it to the servers attention, and she just stood there and didn't even offer to have it corrected. I had ask to get equal amount of chicken as the other salad on the table. It was very obvious the difference. It took several minutes for her to return with the additional chicken and even extra salad dressing we had asked for.
Might have just been an off day, it happens.

The restaurant was very nice. The food was really tasty. We had deviled eggs and slider briskets. I liked the maple flavored bacon and the jalapeno slaw on the brisket.

Great experience. Great location. We were in town for a Lakers game so it was fitting that we went here for dinner before hand. Great tasking food, great atmosphere, great prices. We loved it so much that we stopped in after the game for dessert!

Awesome experience! Very friendly staff and accommodating. The food was frickin excellent and the drinks were strong! We ordered the ribeye, center cut filet, bbq beef dip, mac n cheese, and Shaq's famous fried chicken. Cant fit the photos and i dont feel like resizing but all so worth it.
