    Check it out for the ambience alone! Great drinks, tasty apps/sides but pretty pricey for what you get. But it's all about the ambience. A great place for a romantic occasion, or to take friends who are visiting from out-of-town.

    Our server was nice but slow. Our glasses were empty and dirty dishes were not bussed. The food was meh, but not bad. It's all about the ambiance and the GREAT entertainment! Would def go back just for cocktails and appetizers.

    Highly recommend going when the live music is happening. Jazz style piano, vocalist, and drums were such a nice touch for dinner - which was also delicious. Celebrated our anniversary - it was lovely.

    Really wanted to love this place, great vibe and cool casual seating. Great music as well. Was more than a little stuffy especially on the sofa. Service was really slow, sat there for 20 minutes before I had to ask the host if we had to get our own drinks. Second round took 25 minutes just to get 2 drinks and we decided to leave after that.

    Great place for dinner, especially for a romantic evening. Went on a Thursday evening and there was great, soothing live music which started around 6:00pm. Excellent overall. Definitely worth trying out. You won’t be disappointed.

    Won’t go back. Super limited menu that didn’t offer much variation. The four people at our table each received our plates at different times - at about 10-minute intervals. So our food arrived over 40 minutes…the first person was finished king before the last person was served! The orientation of the tables means that half of the people have their backs to the stage, like I did. So if I wanted to watch the band, I had to crane my neck 180 degrees. Why? The old Feinstein’s lounge, which was in that space before this iteration, had all the tables perpendicular to the stage, so everyone had a view. Really stupid rearrangement of the room. The food was meh, the service was nice but again, brought out of food at four different times, and the room is arranged so half of the audience has their back to the stage. This is Los Angeles…there are plenty of places to spend our money and hear live music. Won’t be bothering with this one again.

    This place is all about the ambiance it’s so lovely. I love the old Hollywood vibe it definitely takes you back in time. We had some wine and martinis that were very good. For dinner I had the vegan cacio e pepe and it was delicious we also order the artisan bread, beets and burrata salad to share and my friend ordered the red snapper she said it was amazing. We will definitely be back soon.

    Terrible culinary and service experience. One of the worst in my 21 years living in LA. The food was flavorless and the presentation was bad. The service was terrible. The waiter kept forgetting our orders and talking nonstop about things we didn’t care about. Very, very disappointing al around. We took colleagues with us and, at the end of the evening, we were completely embarrassed.

    We loved The Velvet Martini Lounge with one exception: the service. Our waiter, Brandon, simply talked too much, so he either spent way too much time at our table when he eventually showed up or he spent too much time talking to other guests and thus ignoring us. We waited and waited and waited for him to show up in the first place, then waited again throughout our night for him to check in - when we wanted more drinks, etc. Brandon is a lovely man, but he needs to do his job, not socialize and thus keep people waiting. We don't care about his time on a cruise ship, or all of the other details of his life - we were there to enjoy our dinner with each other, not him. Sadly, what would have been a perfect night, became irritating. We will go back, but we will request another waiter. If another waiter is not available, we will leave (that's how much he spoiled the evening).

    I am almost afraid to do this review for fear of making it harder to get a reservation in the future. I told owner/partner Matt (who was out and about keeping an eye on things) and our delightful and knowledgeable waitress Alexandria that the restaurant is a gem. It’s a wonderful experience. The service was great. The food was delicious and just the right amount and at just the right price. The cocktails were perfection. Pianist/ vocalist Valentina and the bass player (I failed to get his name) gave fantastic entertainment. We’re going to be regulars.

    Wow, what a wonderful evening. We were celebrating our anniversary and they had a perfect table set for us with a happy anniversary card on our table, with a perfect view of the piano as requested. Our server was sweet and wonderful. All other stuff came up to wish us a happy anniversary. Such a perfect evening and can’t wait to go back and share it with her friends.  Oh and the TV dinners were so much fun and nostalgic!

    Stepping inside this wonderful remembrance of long ago years, you immediately feel like you have really gone back in time. A wonderful experience was had by all in my party and the Velvet Martini Room shall be our best go to place. The ambiance is dynamite with a lot of detail going into the design and decor of the yester-years. The food was amazing, fair value, server Brandon was delightful and professional. A fun piano bar with great entertainment, playing the music of the times. Management definitely has got their best foot forward. I highly recommend. Enjoy!

    The burger was extremely overcooked and dry. Drinks were just OK, nothing special. And for a place with a old school vibe and rat pack feel the old fashioned sucked, that should be a staple, invest in a single cube. Slow service, had to walk to check in area to pay my bill.

    A cozy, intimate dinner spot where we celebrated a birthday. The upstairs menu was very limited, but we were able to enjoy entrees from the main dining room. Very nice vibe with live music. Small setting that would be great for a romantic dinner. Excellent service.

    The food was great! The Blackjack burger that I got was huge and tasty. The service was even better!! My server Sky was kind, accommodating, and very attentive. She made me feel welcomed, if you can I highly recommend you request a table with Sky. 10/10 service!!! The ambiance was calm and soothing and love the Old Hollywood feel. They had live piano which just added to the experience
