Contemporary French
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.

Parker rolls and oysters were amazing. The porter house steak and filet were great as were the Pomme dauphine. But the rest of the sides were a little tortured and over cooked.

The food was excellent and so was the service. We had a minor issue with an order being overcooked and they resolved immediately, barely missing a beat in our meal.

We will definitely go back!

Iconic L.A. eatery which definitely lives up to their reputation (not all do). Ambiance, while dated, is charming, welcoming, warm and delightful. Attentive, professional, friendly service. Well presented/prepared food. We ordered oysters to start and Couscous Royale as our shared entree. The oysters were fresh, plump and briny accompanied by a rose mignonette. Perfect. The main, with its promise of a diverse selection of lamb, did not disappoint (except for the superfluous, tasteless chicken leg). We will return.

My husband and I went for our anniversary, and it was quite an experience. We ordered 4 dishes, each so delicious and full of flavor. The host and waitress were attentive. Appreciated the valet and were seated right away. The ambiance was incredible and so romantic. It was a very lovely experience. Will return again soon!

Ambiance was what pushed the higher rating. Food was good, but nothing overwhelmingly unique. Service was a little lackluster and slow even though they told us we had an hour and 45 min time limit. Seemed like our server was far more attentive to his larger tables... makes sense. Overall, it was an enjoyable yet overly expensive experience.

The service this night was very poor. The server ignored us for long periods. The side vegetables were brought out with the bread. The main dishes did not show up for 45 minutes! By then the vegetables were cold. When we were done, we had to ask for the check after a long delay, and then another long delay before someone picked up the credit card, and then only because we asked someone to take care of it. The food was delicious and the venue is beautiful but most of the 2 1/2 hours we were there we were just sitting and waiting for someone to notice what was needed.

Ambiance is cozy and quaint with absolutely beautiful setting. The food did not match the level of ambiance and so I was slightly disappointed. If food was better than I would definitely come back.

The atmosphere is beautiful and the wait staff very good but the food was not as we remember nor were the menu options. We used to really enjoy this restaurant. For three people, two sharing food, with three drinks the cost was close to $300 with tip. Quite pricy really.

The Little Door is one of my favorite restaurants in LA! I recently dined there for my second time and my experience was even better than the first! Our server, Sean, was fantastic! Our cocktails, appetizers, entrèes and dessert were fabulous. The ambiance of the restaurant is spectacular, I love it. It's a great restaurant for date night or if your parents are in town!

Excellent food and good service. The disappointment was that we were seated at the very back of the restaurant where it was so dark that we had to use our phone flashlights to see the food that we were served. The rest of the restaurant has such a lovely outdoor area but we were told that there was no room to sit there.
