    My boyfriend I were looking for a nicer restaurant to celebrate our 6th anniversary and after discussing a few options, ended up deciding on Sparrow. The environment is so beautiful and romantic, with a wonderful menu, and super kind and assistive staff. We will definitely be going again!

    We had reservations for 8:15pm, we arrived at 8:10 and did not get seated closer to 8:40pm. Service was great in the beginning towards the end we had to wait about 30 min for waitress to pickup our payment. The food and drinks definitely made up for the wait. I would come back!

    We had a fabulous experience. Two of the 4 of us are vegan and the chef prepared outstanding dishes for them. I would highly recommend their pasta dishes, Puttanesca and pistachio pesto and their Tartufo pizza, Fabulous appetizers and outstanding service. We will be regulars at this restaurant!

    Could have been better. I’ve eaten eggplant parmigiana many times and I have never had it spiced with chili. Likewise, the canoles were filled with whipped cream rather than pastry cream. It was far from what it should have been. Service was terrific.

    Service was exceptionally slow Saturday evening. Our reservation for 3 was for 8pm for a standard table in the bar area and we got seated in the main dining room instead at 8:30p. Our appetizers arrived before our drinks which is a huge pet peeve. The food was phenomenal, however our entrees thereafter took too long to arrive to be honest. We barely got out of the restaurant before midnight. And though we were cared for wonderfully by our server and staff and the food was a delight, timing on delivery of drinks and food plus wasted time waiting was a miss.

    We love Sparrow. The hostesses are kind and friendly, especially Delicia. The waiters are personal and attentive….both Robin and Johnny were awesome and the Guest Relations Manager, Oliver, checked in to see if everything was satisfactory. There was a guitarist who walked around and played music which made the ambiance even more special. The food is fabulous and fun to share in a group. Sparrow is our favorite DTLA restaurant and we will certainly be back!

    We previously dined here and had a great experience. Not sure why but something was “off” this time around. The server had too many tables to attend to. The food was lackluster (except for the cocktails and tuna tartare). Pretty restaurant with high ceilings…can get really loud with the music.

    The food and service was out of this world. My wife and I were first time visitors, and we were guided on how to have the best food experience. The white truffle pizza was to die for . The drinks were out of this world. We're coming back for sure

    Very delightful place tucked away in Hotel Fig. We loved the cocktails and especially the risotto balls! It can definitely get noisy and cramped easily, so be prepared for that type of evening. I think at one point (maybe even twice, honestly) they forgot to put in the order for our main dish and we never got bread despite seeing it flow like water to all the other tables. Chris, our waiter, was a lifesaver though and went in after it when we were about to give up and walk away. I don't think we were the only ones either who experienced this. Definitely also a showcase of smaller groups/couples being put on the back burner to the more "scene-y" parties. Overall though its worth trying!

    Such an incredible place with great service. Everything that we ordered from food to drinks was delicious and well worth it. I already recommended this place to 10 people and I will be coming back. The manager, service and bussers were excellent. We celebrated a birthday and by the time they put out desert order in the system, the kitchen closed and we couldn’t get the dessert. The manager took the initiative and brought us ice cream places super cute with candles. LOVE this place and the people!

It’s really hard to find such places here in LA. This is Italian restaurant, food was delicious and fresh . Great cocktails with nice presentation. Decor of the restaurant is also really nice ! Every table gets personal attention from the restaurant manager . He came to us several times to ask if everything was ok . Definitely will go back ! I wish we have more places like that one here .

    Great dining experience. Our hostess Delicia seated us promptly and suggested that we consider certain items on the menu. Our server Johnny was great and described some of the more popular menu items and made drink recommendations. We were greeted by a relationship manager. The food was tasty and fairly priced. Would highly recommend.
