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.

Really terrible service that ruined our meal. Server did not interact with us whatsoever and was extremely rude. We mentioned this to the hostess who was unapologetic as well.

The hostess and our waiter were as outstanding as our dinners! The pomegranate margaritas and framboise chocolate dessert weren’t hard to ingest either ☺️😊‼️

It's amazing to me how crazy it is on 3rd Street when you arrive. Once the valet takes your car, you must enter through a little door (not that little, but stay with me). Once you're in, it's a totally calming and different world on the inside. What a beautiful restaurant and I've must have passed it a million times and never saw it. I'm so glad we celebrated my birthday there and everything on the menu comes out on time and hot. It's so delicious and if you've never been here before, now is the time. They were great!

This is my third time going to little door for dine LA. The menu was different this year and definitely did not disappoint. It not only met but exceeded my expectations. I took a few friends who have never been and they loved it. Food, ambience, and price were great.

This might be my new favorite place in LA! A beautiful dining area that will make you feel like you've stepped through a portal into some far off exotic place. Fantastic food! I especially loved the grilled octopus and Couscous Royale.

Ambiance and vibe are 5 stars. Food is completely average, doesn’t taste like it was made for you fresh and is overpriced. Our waitress was not on her game.

Spent a delayed Valentine’s dinner at Little Door and they were fantastic as usual. It was great to feel somewhat normal again due to Covid, and they were very conscious of keeping the restaurant safe outfitting the restaurant with style. And the food lived up to Little Door standards!

I went with a couple friends to celebrate my birthday and it was a great experience. It’s a beautiful scene with lots of lights and good music playing in the background. We had a great waiter and the staff was super helpful. We shared a few appetizers and few main courses and everything was good. We also got a bottle of wine recommended from our waiter and we liked it. They made it special and added a candle to a desert that I picked out. I would defiantly go back and recommend the restaurant to others.

The appetizers were good. We would prefer flavors of the entrées to be more conventional. I think the chef tries too hard for new sauces that tend to be too sweet or overpowering. The halibut was lack of flavor by itself. While the lamb chop was tender, it was a bit gamey. The music was a bit loud and out of place with a romantic garden setting. They never acknowledged it was a birthday dinner celebration for us even when we put a note on our reservation. For the relatively high prices they charged vs our experience, we won't go back.

I love the intimate and cozy feel of The Little Door. My friends and I fell in love with quant the place looks. Very charming and romantic. The drinks are made very well and the food is full of flavor. You won't be disappointed. This place is great for a small group of friends/family to have dinner or for a couple. Enjoy. :)
