the NIXON Chops & Whiskey Ratings and Reviews
Seta was closed for remodeling. There was nothing on the website and I was allowed to make a reservation. I understand things slipped through the cracks but someone should have made sure to contact me to let me know the places was closed. I reached out to them to confirm the night before and they confirmed it was closed for remodeling. This was the night before our reservation FOR 8, IN DECEMBER. Here I thought I planned weeks in advance and it would be a smooth evening but it turned into a hectic evening and one couple dropped out because of it.
We went there around 5 or 6pm i think, whatever the hours are on a Tuesday when they've just opened for evening patrons. I think that's why we were the only ones there, and so why it was so quiet. We didn't mind the quietness because I had to take a phone call anyways -- was nice to be able to take the call inside and not have to go outside to hear.
Waitress was lovely, she checked on us enough times, made good recommendations to help us order. Chef was great -- food tasted good -- mom ordered the salmon dinner, and I ordered the spinach/mushroom salad with steak. I loved the warm pancetta vinaigrette and crispy onion rings on top. Would come again.
I have been to SETA several times. I usually run into the same situation. Almost every time I go there are private parties going on and they are VERY NOISY. Once, previously, I made a reservation and it was subsequently cancelled on me because you had another private party booked. On this occasion, you sat us back in the lounge where, I thought, the noise level would be lower. However, we were seated right under the lounge speaker. That, plus the loud noise coming from the main dining room made conversation next to impossible. To make matters worse, because of the private party, my favorite half roasted chicken dish was not available.
So the date was a bit spoiled and my food was not what I wanted.
I go there because I thought it might be the romantic space to take a date in Whittier.
I'll start looking for another place
We had our daughter graduation dinner at Seta's and everything turned out perfect... Originally our reservations was for 8pm; however I called and requested to come in 1 hour early. Our server was amazing and the staff were very professional. The manger was so kind and arrange a graduation back drop for the 2017 graduates. We all took pictures and had a great time.
The NY steak sandwich and freshly made chips were AMAZING!!!! The steak was juicy, the ciabatta bread was perfectly soft on the inside and lightly cruncy on the outside. And the chipotle mayo was delish. Also the service was really good. They were very attentative, gracious, and accomodating.
Fantastic food, Great service,....The noisiest restaurant we've ever eaten in!!...We couldn't even talk to each other.....Maybe acoustic ceilings?...That was on a Friday;...We just ate there again last night; guitar music, minimal noise...We'll be weekday customers.
The food is absolutely amazing! Everything I've had has always been cooked to perfection. From the tuna tar tar to the tacos! The reason I'm not giving full stars is because we were there for an early dinner, about 5:30-6pm and there was an obnoxious group of people at the bar nearby. They were being very loud and rambunctious. I'm a rowdy girl myself but I know there is a time and place for that. I didn't see anyone ask them to tone it down in spite of the full dinner crowd trying to enjoy a nice dinner. Had it not been for that I would have given full stars.
Our dinner was exquisite, the. servers were the best, tThe ambience and music was great. However, we were disappointed that we could not use the $20 gift towards the meal emailed to us for our anniversary, which happens to fall on Valentine's Day. We don't have any problems paying for our meal, but felt it was false advertisement to email the coupon to us and then be denied when presented.
Chef Molina always puts together thee most tastiest sauce on his steaks. I love the Bourbon Au Jus sauce over the Prime Rib and Habanero Chorizo Sauce over a Filet Mignon. The Jalapeno infused Margarita was delicious as well. Thank you Chef Molina and staff! My family loves your food and the live entertainment. Never change..
My husband and I were here for dinner and the food was better than delicious, it was wonderful.
The place has simple decor, the bar was packed, but the food is better than excellent. We had appetizers, salad, soup and entrees. We could have licked our plates. We will definitely return.
I thought it would be a good place to go and have dinner with a couple of customers. The food overall was excellent. In terms of service, two of my main factors are water and bread. The restaurant failed on both of these accounts. Also having the tip as a flat 18% no matter what does not incentive servers to do a good job. Also a pet peeve is to follow the food out and ask how is everything tasting when I have not even gotten to try it. Probably would advise another restaurant if you care about service.
We were a party of 5 for a birthday dinner. The service was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding. A really good menu. The organic steak was perfectly cooked and was a huge hit as were the seafood enchiladas. They prepared a special dessert for the table and at the last minute even prepared an extra gluten-free dessert. We didn't feel crammed in, the noise level was moderate and the decor is very attractive and modern.
I enjoyed the musician playing food was good. Can't really say anything was outstanding.. After Dinner we went to bar. Enjoyed the DJ. But I have complaint at I opened a tab during club ours and Bartender charged me 26 for tip.. already charged on card. I will not come back again. I have never been pre charged tip for a club and not told about it. O btw I have been here mulitple times and this has never happened to me or my friends.
Seta has been our favorite restaurant for special occasions and also for happy hours. Their food is incredible and unique. The Seta Roll is one of my favorite appetizers and their variety of deserts are to die for. Their main courses are expectacular, you could never go wrong with any of them. Their customer service is of higher standards.
Made reservations for 4 for Sunday brunch. Running a little late and didn't have a problem getting our table. It was not busy when we arrived. Not sure many people know they are open for brunch since it was sort of empty. I ordered the chilaquiles which were delicious. However my bloody mary, not so much. Service was great. My friends all enjoyed their breakfast items. Coffee is tasty. I would go back for brunch again.
