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.

I just proposed to my girlfriend (now fiancée) at the Little Door this weekend and it was everything I could have hoped for. The lighting was romantic, the staff brilliant, and the food an exceptional blend of french and moraccan cuisine. So glad to have this place be part of a special memory.

A favorite place to eat in West Hollywood. First dined at Little Door 15 years ago. Nothing has changed. It’s still a spectacular restaurant with an awesome vibe. Great at accommodating our kids too

The ambiance was breathtaking, the service was good not great, it took a while before they reached my date and I, we had to wave down our actual waiter, food took too long, by the time it reached our table it was already warm. Food was okay, not amazing, but overall a great experience.

The Little Door continues to delight. It retains all of the qualities that have made it one of the finest and most romantic dining experiences in Los Angeles for more than a decade, while consistently incorporating in new touches. It helps that they have the warmest and most knowledge staff in the city. It was a perfect night!

Had an amazing experience at The Little Door! It was a special occasion & the hostess was kind enough to give my fiance and I one of the best tables in the restaurant. Our server was attentive but not overbearing & let us take our time. Food was insanely good- not a crumb left on our plates. The Little Door is a special, romantic restaurant - thank you for taking such good care of us :)

This was an early Valentine’s dinner. Thank had seen pictures on a friend’s Facebook page and thought it looked very inviting inside. Sure enough it is! Absolutely beautiful. The valet was quick and efficient. My only criticism of the entire night was the inevitable and tiresome attempt to seat us in a separate room, away from the patio with Twinkly lights and roses hanging from the ceiling. There was, I think, one part in the restaurant when we arrived at 7 pm, but the attempt was still made. For any restaurateur caring to listen this is exactly the wrong kind of vibe to create at the very beginning of the experience and I cannot see that it’s worth it. They attempted to sit two other couples at the same bad table after we moved, and failed both times. Why bother?

Anyway, everything else was positive. The waiter was very pleasant and had just the right relaxed but respectful approach. He cane to our table immediately and we had water and the opportunity to order an appetizer within a minute, which was very nice. We ordered the scallop appetizer, which was delicious. The wine list is exceptional. We both wanted lamb and ordered the same dish, with couscous, lamb, chicken and sausage. We both thought it was excellent. Creme brûlée for dessert.

The servers were extremely nice. The ambience is among the best I’ve ever experienced, and I would definitely go again and recommend to others.

What a delight!! The restaurant is a pleasant surprise behind 2 wooden doors! The patio is a wonderland of trellised vines and roses. We were greeted and sat on the patio. The menu was a wonderful array of specialties that could be a la carte , or they did have prix fix menu which was a choice of appetizer, I choose the goat cheese tart with beets,,,delicious! and choice of entrees, i had the sea bass...again a delicious meal! the deserts was just as good! Chocolate lava cake..............a really nice dinner!

Celebrated my partner’s birthday and The Little Door was a great treat! The appetizers and desserts are amazing! So amazing that, by comparison, our entree fell short but still delicious nonetheless. Our server and wait staff were all very kind and hospitable. And the enthusiasm of the hosts made the entire evening very special!

We had reservations, and were there on time. It took 20 minutes to seat us because of dine la. Service was extremely slow to take our order, it took another 20 minutes just to take our order. The appetizers were delicious, the Mains and dessert were ok from the DineLA menu. i would not recommend those items and just go with the regular menu items.
The table next to us had ordered before we even sat down and they didn't get their appetizers until after we got our Mains.

First impression the ambiance is amazing, great vibe. We put in our order fairly quickly. The table next to us came well after us and received their appetizer and was almost done before our waiter checked on us. He asked if we received our appetizer, we said no, and when he checked on it he realized he never put it in, which was 40 min ago. At this time we had finished our glass of wine and asked for another which he ended up comping. The food was AMAZING. All courses. However, when we got to our dessert, as we were about 75% done with it, the table next to us toppled over a candelabra onto our table where glass cups with fake tea lights fell onto my arm and another smashed my friends dessert. We didn’t want to waist food by having another one which was offered. The bill took some time to be brought to us (we had to ask for it), or the waiter was avoiding us at this point. He was a kind waiter just not attentive at all. Everything but the waiters service and the candelabra dropping on our table was AMAZING other then that. Comping just the one glass of wine each was not as satisfactory but it was a nice gesture none the less.

It's a little pricey, but it's a beautiful venue and every single dish was memorable. The service was friendly and professional, if a little slow, but they were completely full because of Dine L.A., so I'm comfortably cutting them some slack for that. We look forward to going back. BTW, Dine L.A. was good value for this restaurant, and the selections for that special menu were excellent.
