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.

We were sat in the very back, inside and it was a very dark room. The garden patio is of course where you want to sit. When we checked in, we were told that we only had the table for 1.5 hours and then the service was very slow, which of course made us anxious the whole time that we wouldn’t have time for dessert. So unfortunate because it’s a lovely place with good food but the evening was plagued by this ticking time bomb of whether we’d be asked to give up the table. I know that a lot of LA restaurants are having a tough time finding staff these days since restaurants have started reopening for dine-in so perhaps that was a factor, but perhaps they should think about adjusting the strict time limit on tables to account for the level of service that they can offer. Very un-French to rush a meal!

Disappointed with management allowing unruly family with crying kids in such a nice restaurant. They allowed a kid run around the restaurant crying and poorly control. If I want to go to ihop for dinner this was it.

Service wasn’t the best. Didn’t feel sincere. Also, we were eating/drinking the whole time but they kicked us out right as we finished dessert at 9pm when there wasn’t a line.

We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and it was a wonderful evening. We loved the fact that they had the "window" dividers in the garden section. It makes the setting quieter and more private between tables. We hope they keep them. The food, service and setting were perfect to celebrate this special occasion. Thanks! We will be back.

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.
