I love this place, and enjoy dining whenever I can
Unfortunately, the new owners have not lived up to the old Bel Air. The food was cold and awful. The waitress was great. That was the only saving grace about it.
Loved the food
Loved the fact it was quiet and we could talk without shouting. That doesn’t happen anymore.
It was my first time eating at this establishment. I was attending a seminar at The Getty that evening and wanted a convenient place to eat good food - - this was perfect. We had a very early reservation, so the restaurant was quite, but the bar was filled with people. The food was very good. We loved the Tuna tartar Tacos, the Duck Salad, and the Brussels Sprouts. We didn't have time for dessert or to peruse the wine and cocktails, but we will definitely go back and spend more time.
Went out With my wife for a casual Saturday evening dinner. The location with my wife for a casual Saturday evening dinner. Service was very welcoming, The wines a bit pricey but very good. (Life is too short to drink bad wine)
We shared.a cauliflower appetizer which was properly cooked into a salad but had too many ingredients. It was neither Mexican nor Thai, nor Californian. A pitty as the execution and intentions were well noticeable. Subsequently my wife enjoyed the ravioli and I enjoyed the crabcakes. Both dishes were nice, properly cooked and prepared and tasty. Unfortunately there was not enough Space to enjoy dessert. All in all I can highly recommend this very nice restaurant, not too noisy and super nice service.
Love the shrimp appetizer.
Bring back the brownie dessert with ice cream.
We had a party of 6 with one woman with hearing aids and we were so happy that we didn't have to yell and she was good with the noise level. Not easy to find these days. The food was very good and everyone was happy with the evening. Not easy to please 6 women.
We shared a pear salad with blue cheese and sweet pecans and turkey bolognese! Both delicious!!
It was nice, but the food was uneven. My wife’s pasta was hot, while my enchilada was mildly warm.
Superb food and service.
Menu has improved and it has more interesting choices.
Great service. Friendly staff. Lovely setting. Food is seriously overpriced.
Attentive service, good food, dessert excellent
Great neighborhood place. Nice. Good food. Perfect for after a visit to the Getty.
Casual dining spot, easy to make reservations. Our table was in the back as requested, but unfortunately there was a very loud table adjacent to us which made conversation difficult. Service was good; food was tasty.
Excellent food in a comfortable intimate setting.
Always enjoy this gem off the 405 an oasis in West L.A.; can't go wrong!
As always, whether lunch or dinner, the food and service was fabulous.
Excellent, as always.
For me, the general and table lighting is too low, especially for lunch. Sorry to see they took off the BLT from the menu. Tables are a little too close together in the back room for private conversations.
My server Mike was absolutely fantastic. Always will return because of him!
Consistently excellent food, quiet, easy, great service, and wonderful lotion just off the 405.
Wonderful food; not inexpensive. It was very quiet when we arrived for lunch; perhaps because it's a relatively new restaurant, but one that I believe will do quite well!
Lovely restaurant seriously undermined by very LOUD music. Could not have a business
Discussion. Will not return!
Wonderful restaurant & very accommodating wait staff!!
I've been coming here for years and the food is exceptional. I also love that it's quiet and possible to have a conversation. It gets an earlier, local crowd, and it's easy to get a table later, which I appreciate.
I frequent The Bel Air on a regular bases. It's very convenient.
The food at this place is consistently good and the noise level is consistently low. Tables are set far apart and the service is attentive but not in your face. An excellent place to have a good meal and conversation.
Love this restaurant except on our last lunch, our orders were delayed and the waiter/waitress never came back to re-pour our wine glasses so we had to reach across each other to do so (we ordered more than one bottle and it was a business lunch so this was awkward). We also did not receive one entrée ordered to go. Prior to this experience, it has been exemplary and we will be back, but this was a disappointing luncheon.
Wonderful meal and great service. Best of all, very low background visit so we could visit without the nuisance of manager's choice of music - Rare indeed - and much appreciated!
So happy the restaurant was open on LaborDay
The salmon was, as usual, superb. The dessert was, as usual, superb. The wine was great. The waiter was great. The room is lovely. The ambiance is wonderful (not too noisy). The parking is convenient. The only thing was that the entree salads were under seasoned. That was unusual for this fine restaurant.
I had the grilled peach, beet and burrata salad for the first time ( I am a regular at the restaurant). It was almost tasteless. I was really surprised because I generally like the food there. I won’t order it again.
Charming restaurant setting and a perfect combination of ambiance, price, menu, decor, size and professional attention and friendliness! We love Chef Leo's cooking and presentations for either casual dining or special occasions. They even have a private room for parties or dinner meetings.
I would recommend for most occasions from a casual lunch or dinner to a group occasion. Fantastic service and an excellent meal!
thank you, Marko, for attentive service!
Everything was wonderful. The food, the service, the ambiance. Try it once, and you'll come back often.
Super clean rest.!!! Great service and good food. Would def. go back again-
As always, one of my favorite restaurants.......and my wife's as well........whenever we're in the neighborhood, we try to drop in.
We appreciate that The Bel-Air uses very good ingredients in their meals and that special diets are honored.
