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.

Beautiful place to have a date night. Although, my date and I felt sick after the meal, it was a nice experience (the restaurant itself). I would maybe recommend avoiding the fish.

All that stuff that is said about this place being the most romantic environment doesn’t even cover it. What a room! 5 stars isn’t enough. Ambience is so key, so thank you Little Door for truly getting it. The food, while not terribly innovative (if you’re a foodie type - we’re not) was perfectly prepared and very reasonably priced. Perhaps most importantly, the staff was phenomenal. The woman and man at the host station when we arrived were kind, welcoming and very professional. And our server was perfect; he accommodated all our little questions with a smile and our time constraints with efficiency. Ours could not have been a better experience. In fact, lol, we ditched the second half of the show we saw at Largo following dinner and went back to the restaurant to finish off the evening, where we experienced more of the magic that made the Little Door our evening’s true headliner.

Truly a VERY SPECIAL RESTAURANT; well beyond our highest expectations! One of the most romantic in the entire world! Everything (except the HORRIFIC "Italian" coffee; WHY?) was well OVER THE TOP, including the service. Every morsel of food was among the VERY BEST! [Unfortunately, OpenTable once again let us down by once AGAIN FAILING to pass on our "special request" to the restaurant, which is NOT the restaurant's fault, but once again, ENTIRELY the FAULT of OpenTable (why do we use you???) Why do you even exist????]. HOWEVER, the wine prices are UNCONSCIONABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHAME ON LITTLE DOOR for FAILING to provide at least some AFFORDABLE PRICES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sure that not ALL of their patrons are BILLIONAIRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here recently and it was so enjoyable! We’ve been here several times over the years and it’s just as lovely as ever. Great ambience! We both did the prixe option: I had the arugula salad, rack of lamb; husband had the tart and the sea bass. We shared the desserts. The Sonoma Pinot noir was delicious, followed by mint tea and coffee. A favorite.

Fantastic! Our waiter Olivier was very responsive and super nice. Knowledgeable of the menu and somehow we picked out a few of his favorite options. The ribeye was incredible perfectly cooked and seasoned amazingly, which is something that doesn’t typically happen when I eat steak! I think I could could better than most; skillet salt pepper and butter but they killed it. I think it had Rosemary, I don’t even know but the flavors were phenomenal! Also, love the scallops those are fantastic and I thought the crab salad was OK. Next time I want to try the duck patte. Other than that great date night, wonderful atmosphere outside in the courtyard, and local which is nice. I’ve heard this place has been around for almost 20 years, pretty cool somewhere hanging on that long in LA it’s definitely a place to add to your bucket list, if you have not been. All in all 5 stars!

Aside from the food being great, the tables were not too close and there were tablecloths! The other people there seemed to be gracious and not drunk or loud. This is all a rarity in Los Angeles and most other major urban centers these days. Congratulations to all at the Little Door!

The Little Door never disappoints! The staff is incredible and very welcoming. The food is phenomenal and the menu offers an array of options for various dietary restrictions and preferences. The atmosphere is magical. It's like dining in a little hidden garden, with the perfect balance of a romantic yet hip vibe. You can't help but have a great time at The Little Door. Can't wait to go back!

This was my second time dining at The Little Door. The first time was for a girls holiday dinner years ago and it was such a wonderful experience! From the food, ambiance, service.. I remembered thinking that I wanted to come back again:) My most recent visit was for a date and it was the perfect place to share dinner and conversation. We got to the restaurant before our reservation time so we got a drink at the bar first. The bartender was quick to notice us and before we even had a chance to try and get his attention, he had come around to hand us a cocktail menu! I can't remember our server's name but he was also so nice, polite and attentive. The food was wonderful and I love the sweet mint tea they give you at the end. Everything about our evening was perfect! I can't wait to come back :)

This week happened to be during Dine LA and we actually ate there on both Saturday and Sunday night. The food is that good. We love the place and believe that you will too. Thank you. once again, to Josh, Kelly, Roz and Olivier. You all are like family and we appreciate you.
