A hidden gem in the middle of Korea Town. The absolute best food and drinks in all of LA. If you go, you need to try their Seana Cocktail! Its not too sweet or syrupy, it is the perfect blend of fresh fruit juices while also giving you a subtle creaminess. The calamari was great and the Striped Bass was by far the best tasting fish/ sauce combination I have ever had. To top it off, the lighting and decor of the restaurant is absolutely beautiful. I almost don’t even want to submit this review so that I can try to hide this place. My favorite restaurant by far.

Terrible service, waited an hour before the food arrived for the first 2 people in our party of 6, it took another hour before everybody else food came. When I finally got my food, it was wrong.

Amazing food and service, really high quality, especially for a spot that advertises itself as a club or bar. Didn’t have time to stay for the full karaoke experience, but got a glimpse of the set up and it was very cool. Will be back soon!

Very cool vibes and the food was pretty good. They do need more food items but nonetheless it was great. You can also rent a room to karaoke and after 11pm, this place turns into a club. So if your looking for a fun night out, this is the place.

The food was delicious, wonderful cocktails and very decent wine and beer options.

If i could change one thing; everyone at every table was trying to talk, the music volume should be lower.

Also it would be great if the karaoke had a booking option on open table, especially given i had to provide a credit card and was subject to $20 per person cancellation fee.

Those sound like private room cancellation fees, not table service cancellations.

Didn’t save my write up of initial review before phone refreshed, which was going on 5 paragraphs of just an awful experience with very poor service.

Long story short; food was good and ambiance was great but service was beyond horrific. The type of experience that you want to inform everyone to stay away from this place.

Do not waste your money ordering the bass fish. $35 for 2 minuscule fish. This place looked good and upscale in pictures but it was a disappointment to be honest. The selection of drinks was not impressive.

The concept is cool... private karaoke rooms where you can also order food/drink for your party. We initially booked a room to accommodate a certain number of people and when the size of our party increased, we needed to upgrade the room and the staff were very accommodating, nice and helpful. They explained how the evening would be set up and everything.

Although, we kept having issues with the karaoke machine. It’s kind on a difficult system to navigate and needed to be rebooted several times.

Food and drinks were decent but overpriced in my opinion.

The staff in general was overall extremely nice. We were seated right away . Our hostess was attentive and friendly, our server who was a girl was nice, but the gentleman also assigned to our area was great (he was clearing the tables and making sure it was ready for the next group ). He checked on us, engaged in conversation and really wanted our first time experience to be great.

The drinks were good they just took a little time to get there . Was enjoying our company so did t bother us too much. The AMBIANCE was nice it wasn’t too crowded and i thought the setting was beautiful . Our server was sweet but didn’t really engage too much , didn’t ask if we were celebrating anything and also didn’t check if she had 5 entrees until we called her back to double check she got all our orders .

The food was very good. Again our busser assigned to our area checked in with us and he was wonderful. FOOD- Tasted good , plates came out hot and the presentation was very clean . Music wasn’t too loud and the Space had a nice look to it. Really great spot with girls or on a date night

Our server had a small misunderstanding thought she would bring a birthday dessert so ordered an additional one but just ended bringing the dessert I had ordered with a candle . Overall she was sweet and we had a great time experiencing the venue

Will go back again in the future

Parking was validated which was nice.

I was so disappointed with so many things. I would Not recommend At All!! Way too expensive and the food was not good at all. Since we were ready to leave ordered an Uber earlier & it was there and the last thing was ordered wasn’t out yet we wanted to cancel it so we wouldn’t miss our ride and the waitress wouldn’t let us and said it’ll be right out it should be ready now and brought it out and made us pay for something we waited a ling time for and didn’t want it Anymore. It was freezing outside too so that’s why we wanted to leave.

The server was super nice but the food was small portions even the bolognese came in a small bowl. The ribs were super sweet as well. The food wasn’t that great. The drinks that came in the pineapple cup was watered down. It tasted like their alcoholic drinks didn’t have alcohol in it. But keep in mind I haven’t drank in a while. It tasted like orange juice. Other than that the server was the best part. Super nice and attentive.

The Ambiance and service was excellent!!!!! Serving portions for the price of the food was a bit disappointing! I ordered the skirt steak and it was not seasoned at all. My husband said the bass was good but the serving was ridiculously small. Had to get food for him somewhere else on our way home as he was not full.

Thanks for ruining my valentine’s night. Me and my girlfriend got a HORRIBLE stomachache. (Damn super nachos!)Not only service was HORRIBLE but the FOOD disgusting. I could care less about the $120, it’s about pretending to be a high end restaurant when I could have got the same low quality food from a food truck.... in Tijuana! 0/10

Went on a Tuesday so the place was quiet. I especially like the chic-urban décor. The food was superb and the service was excellent. My husband and I had several plates to share -- salmon wrap, brussel sprouts, and grilled skewers. We also shared a dinner plate of skirt steak. Everything was very tasty and not too salty like most places. Will visit again.

This place was a little hidden. It was attached to a business tower that you would not notice at first, but the entrance way is very nice. The overall atmosphere where beautiful. Super cool modern look. The services was on point. And food was interesting combination and delicious. I would strongly recommend the fried Ramen egg. 5 stars all around.
