Great. A little noisy. Great wait staff.
The menu had many unusual spices and ingredients and when we questioned the waiter he was not well informed about the food preparation. After notifying him of our food allergies he correctly told us when we ordered was fine and then after dinner was prepared and delivered he informed my husband he could not eat his dish. He left two meals on the table and returned two to the kitchen to prepare different meals. We had to ask to send everything back to keep it hot and they again brought back 2 out of 4 meals, when all were not prepared. We spoke to the manager who was less then charming, barely apologized and when the bill came they took just 10% off the total and never said another thing . We thought the food was excellent but would not return because of the attitude and how they handled things poorly. Serving food you are allergic to and serving meals at different times is not Ok when you charge these prices!
First time visiting, great little happy hour bites. Happy hour goes til 10pm on Mondays, and til 7pm every other day, including weekends! Wife is very critical of food and even she was impressed. Chicken Tawook had excellent Lebanese flavors. We went during off-peak hours, don't know how this place holds up when it gets busy
Was our anniversary and I put that in the reservation, but the restaurant never acknowledged it. Service was ok.
Not much effort put into DineLA food executions. Menu looked great, but food was mediocre. Regular dining experience there is pretty good, but DineLA is clearly not a priority.
We went to the Dine LA. and were surprised at the quality of the food as well as the gorgeous plates. (art)
Four of us decided to try a "new " place. WE had a terrific dinner, good wine and excellent service . We will definitely be back!
The food was fantastic. Nice cozy place.
Unfortunately the chef (whom we love) cut his finger that night and I believe the food we ordered was cooked by someone else. It was not as good as the many times prior that we had had dining there.
Great food. Creative dishes. Great atmosphere. Great staff.
