Chocolate cake was dry. Blackberry bread pudding was good. Brussels sprouts were great. Margarita pizza was solid. All in all not worth 50$ pp for dinner but not a flop.

Every item we had was delicious, but the particular stand outs were the octopus, ciabatta with ricotta, and short rib pasta. The ambiance was perfect for a birthday dinner, on a well designed patio with heaters and pretty strings of lights around potted trees. Be sure to make a reservation, and ask for a table inside the patio of possible. Although they do have extra tables around the outside of the patio, the prime seating is inside.

Our waiter was fantastic. The food was delicious. The girls out front were awful. We had a 7pm reservation and one member of our party was having trouble finding parking. She even drove by and told the girls that she was running late because of it, yet they still made us wait out in the cold for 30 minute. 30 minutes where we watched walk-ins get seated ahead of us, and 2 other couples who ran late because of parking. And when we questioned them as to why they couldn’t seat us, given the circumstances, they told us that it was a CDC Guideline that they couldn’t seat incomplete parties, which is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. LA can be vapid, but this took the cake. Unless the CDC wrote the rules for brunch everywhere in the world, this was not a CDC guideline, especially not “to cut down on foot traffic,” as we were told. Sorry, but if these two are the first impression for your restaurant, we would have received better front of house service at Starbucks.

Had a reservation for 8. Stood outside and was seated at 9. The wait was not ok. The food and service overall were great. The zucchini pizza was amazing. The marinara pasta had way to much garlic. Got a glass of white wine and it had no flavor. Overall this place was cute and good food service. Would come back but not anytime soon. The hostess was very nice and professional. Need to figure out how to get people off their tables or make less reservations at the same time.

Food was great. Service was literally the worst I have experienced and we waited over 45 min between our first and second courses...without anyone coming over to our table and apologizing, offering us another drink or explaining what was happening.

Made a reservation for 8:45pm, was finally seated at 9:45pm due to the restaurant over booking reservations. Once seated, my group waited another 20 minutes for a server to even touch the table. We asked to order everything at once because of how starving we all were now eating dinner so late. Food was good but I wouldn’t trust making a reservation again!

I love Spartina. This is the perfect place to have dinner, especially during Covid. They have a lovely outdoor area (not a 6-foot distance but I felt safe) and the servers are well protected. The only downside was getting a waiter's attention but I still love the place.

50 minute wait for our reservation because the owner walked in unannounced and took our table. I mean... 🤦🏻‍♂️
Sent a meal back because it was undercooked - last call was announced before i could have my first bite.
They gave us a free appetizer but it couldnt make up for being treated so averagely.

Absolutely recommend!! Five star experience.
Make sure to order The black and white garlic pasta. The kale salad. The ricotta with honey. The pepperoni pizza with honey. The meatballs. Even the burger! It’s all good. We had a FEAST.

Oh! There is an 18% gratuity included. Im super in support of this, I just didn’t realize it was there and tacked on another 22% whoops! its all good. Our waiter was great, he deserved it. But just FYI!

Maybe I would have noticed if it wasn’t for the delicious cocktails! The basil sour is divine.

Absolutely phenomenal place! Drinks were amazing (strong too). My SO and I split a pizza and go our own pastas which were all 10/10. Portions for the pastas were rather small even though we got the “full size.” Quality was amazing

Excellent experience all around. Because Spartina already had a great patio Pre-Covid, it didn’t seem like they were a restaurant that has been forced to take their operations outdoors. Food and cocktails were excellent, and we accidentally caught the tail end of Happy Hour, which has some great options. The star of the show was the 21 Day Dry Aged Burger, which is up there with the best burgers in LA, and definitely the best burger I’ve had in 2020.
We will be returning soon.
