Contemporary European
Two simple wooden doors open up to quite a buzz in an otherwise romantic courtyard, where a colorful crowd hangs at the bar and lingers at coveted patio tables. Inside, seats spread throughout the candlelit house-turned-restaurant with intimate furniture. Organic seasonal ingredients, creatively prepared and impeccably presented, characterize our unique menu.

A great night out. The food is very good. The staff are amazing- kind and caring. The ambience of the place, especially at night, is the best. We live the Little Door and we thank you.

Love the atmosphere. Very hip. It is our favorite place in West Hollywood. Food is delicious and worth it. The wine list can be expensive but the waiter's recommendation was wonderful. Will be back.

Little Door is my favorite restaurant in Los Angeles. Every time I've been, its like they know me. I always feel welcomed and appreciated. I had an intimated dinner for 8 people, celebrating a 50th birthday. They put us at a lovely table near the fountain and our waiter, Olivier, took incredible care of us. I will always make The Little Door, my special restaurant in Los Angeles.

There was an obnoxious table sitting beside ours of a big group. They were screaming at one another from across the table and lots of cussing. Quite frankly, it ruined the evening for my boyfriend and I who were seeking a nice dinner together and could barely hear one another talk as we spoke into each other’s ear only to be interrupted by the constant yelling behind us.

The waiter that served us was extremely friendly, unfortunately I can't say the same of the hostess, who seems snobbish and make people feel uncomfortable speaking french with other waiter as we wait for the table by the waiter she was speaking with whom. "What if she was making fun of us." I found very disrespectful for such a thing. Other than that, food is always tasty there.

I adore Little Door. This is the definition of special occasion. The food was top notch. The drinks were carefully crafted as the bartender check to make certain the drinks were to our liking. The service was orchestrated so perfectly as I never "wanted for anything" and the ambiance is spectacular - beautiful and unassuming. THIS is a true Los Angeles treasure. This is more than just dining. This is an experience. We never felt rushed and above par staff knows how to create memories. Besides actually sitting in Paris at a high end Bistro, I find Little Door to be the perfect escape from the Los Angeles rate race. This is truly a gem of the city and I know when I am plan a night at Little Door, it will be nothing short of special, unique and distinctive.

Another great night at the Little Door. We love the staff and we certainly love the food. Of all the places to dine in LA, this is our favorite place. Thank you to Josh, Kelly, Roz and Olivier. You always make us feel welcome and right at home. Our guests, who had never been to the restaurant before, also had a great night. We appreciate you. See you soon. SC

I was visiting Los Angeles from Miami and a friend here recommended this restaurant when he visited LA. It was everything and more! Fabulous food beautiful ambience and great service. My son who lives there will be going back and also try the little next-door. We shared the rack of lamb and sea bass. Both were delicious.

We ha a reservation through Open Table tht they could not find when we arrived. "Are you sure you made it under Barbara?" "Yes, it's my name." Then they reported me as a no show to Open Table. I hope this gets fixed before they offend any more people.

The ambience in the patio was charming with fairy lights and a rustic feel to it. However, we got a table inside in a corner where 4 tables were wedged in together with no space to maneuvre ourselves in between them. Food was not at level with the exorbitant prices. Portions were huge though; I’m not sure if that was a good or a bad thing. Service was good enough. The place was Very loud overall: combined with the music and tables being So close to one another that we could follow anyone’s conversation. I was quite disappointed with the experience and don’t think I’ll be coming back.

Huge markup on wines, though meal price was typical of its slot. Dinner menu has something for everyone. Poor selection and quality of wines less than $90/bottle.

My Husband has dined with you for years and years and had not been back for at least 5 years so we decided to try it on a special night out to Los Angeles. Not only was I impressed with the beautiful surroundings and ambiance but the service and food was outstanding! It was my first time but not our last time to have more beautiful dinners there. It is like a getaway in the middle of a bustling city. My Husband thought it was still outstanding and still top cabin' and we will make it a point to drive there more often from Orange County because it is worth the drive.
