The tasting kitchen posted I was a no show on open table which is incorrect. Whoever is responsible for reservation review made a mistake on my attendance.
The food was really good! The only thing I didn't love was the scallop crudo, wasn't exciting, I thought I thought it needed more flavor, and the pieces were cut a bit too thick for my liking. It's pretty pricey, appetizers are over $20. We both got pasta entrees, both very good. They have a fun cocktail menu. Service is good and quick. My biggest complaint would have to be how extremely loud is it inside, you borderline have to shout to talk to the person across the table from you.
I would be happy to review this property, but am getting frustrated at the way in which this site operates. I can never tell whether I am booking through open table or not, even if I am directed to your site and as a result I never seem to be awarded any dining points for booking.
Tasting menu at $75 is overpriced for quality of food. Very salty and not much variety.
Deserts were good.
Bread, drinks and appetizers were awesome. The pastas were both quite over salted, and I tend to like salty food. We've eaten here multiple times - this dinner seemed to be an exception to the normally otherwise fantastic restaurant.
Abbot Kinney is a great strolling street. We thought we made a good lunch choice. Unfortunately, we sat too close to the music and I missed a lot of our conversation. The menu is interesting but I wasn't thrilled with most of the choices. My chicken salad sandwich was the greasiest and messiest one I've ever had, a two napkins sandwich, and I've enjoyed other croque madames more than this one. I would definitely go back but I'll pay more attention to what I order. We enjoyed the ambiance.
It is nice for dating with husband !!
Delicious and good ambience
Lovely. Brought our dog, staff was welcoming. Always good food.
Terrible ambience - too noisy and cramped space. Food is too salty and menu is extremely confusing. Overpriced for bad food and subpar experience
Lovely dinner, great service and the restaurant is beautiful!
The pasta were absolutely delicious and filling. Definitely the best I’ve had in years.
The Tasting Kitchen remains a go-to spot for a fun dinner out. The atmosphere is a little loud, but it's a great place for drinks and the food is always good. My favorite way to enjoy this place is at the communal tables, having small bites with drinks.
The branzino is amazing! Watch out for the bones!
Great service! Amazing atmosphere!
My wife and I had an amazing experience. Noise level was considerable louder downstairs than upstairs
Ambiance was great! The food was way over priced and pretty average. Food portion was very small. We don’t think we would ever go back there again.
i ordered born marrow and shrimp pasta, and more.
i love the food and cozy and trendy ambiance.
the price was not as high as expected by yelp. and the amount of the menu was not as small as expected.
i mean the price and the amount of the food???that was ok.
The service was great and food was oh so delicious! The staff was very knowledgeable. I love this space. I’ve had drinks here years ago and couldn’t wait to get back and check out their dinner. So tasty and well executed. Will have to try chefs choice next time.
Enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Was with a friend but this is the perfect type of restaurant to go out on a date. Smaller portions but the flavor combinations were spot on. Definitely going back
