    Been here about five times and everytime has been great but this time they had booked too many reservations. So we had to wait outside. Till a table could open up even though we had reservations. Than they offered us a high table so we agreed but they failed to mention it was right at the front door. So the whole night was just everyone walking into us bumping our chairs and tables. The door kept opening and closing with guests arriving and crowding our table. If you guys want to go here never ever sit by the door it’s literally the worst seat in the whole restaurant. It annoyed me so much to the point I’ll probably never be back.

    Verse is undeniably one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. The food, the service, the vibe...it's all there. Great people-watching. Top-notch music. And a state-of-the-art acoustic set-up that ensures that no matter how many people fill the room, you never have to shout to the others at your table. The mushroom linguini and the milk buns are two of my favorites. Five stars all the way!

    Coursed perfectly and our server Roger was attentive and so nice! Food was absolutely delicious. Milk buns are a no brainer - it was on every table. The king prawn and tuna tostadas were fresh and both had generous portions of prawns and tuna respectively. My steak was cooked utterly perfectly. And the mushroom pasta is just the right balance of rich and creaminess. Our cocktails were simply amazing and we can’t wait to come back soon.

    A fabulous venue. But we have 2 suggestions. It took 25 minutes for the wine sommelier to come to our table. Although his wine selection was superb, the wait seemed excessive. Secondary, our waiter passed by our table repeatedly and never refilled our empty wine glasses. We ended up pouring our own. No biggie, but duh?

    The milk bread and butter and the croquettes were delicious. I had the duck which was also delicious. There was what I think was mashed potato and cheese on the plate which was unnecessary, but aside from that super yummy - and that layered potato thing was delectable. My husband got the lamb pasta and he loved it. Drinks were good. Prices are high and it's SUPER dark in there - but the table lamps helped. Tap it three times for the most light! Service was great. Our server was very patient with me as I am picky about wine and he immediately suggested bringing out a taste of the 3 wines I was interested in - and helped me navigate my cilantro aversion. There was a jazz band there and we sat right up front. I was worried I wouldn't be able to hear my husband, but it was fine.

    Matias and the team at Verse always make me and my guests feel special. They treat regulars like family which is why we keep coming back. The food and drink pairing recommendations are always spot on, making the culinary experience unforgettable. And then there's the overall experience with the wonderful music, inviting, exciting and elegant ambiance and amazing servers who are always kind, attentive and fun! If you haven't been to Verse yet, you are cheating yourself out of a memorable experience. -Laila

    It is an excellent restaurant, but there is only one Huge problem: you have to wait for your table on the sidewalk because they use their bar for people to eat and do not allow customers to have a drink while we are waiting for our table to be ready. We are not sure if we will ever dine at Verse again.
    VerseResponded on May 3, 2024
    Hi Carlos, we're really sorry to hear about your recent experience at Verse. We understand how frustrating it can be to wait for a table, especially when you're looking forward to a nice meal. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed our food, but we understand that the delay was a bit of a disappointment. We appreciate your feedback and will certainly take it into consideration as we strive to improve our service. We have used the method you suggested in the past. Unfortunately, it leads to drink delays for our other seated guests and impacts the environment of the tables closest to the bar. Since you specifically requested a table away from the bar in your visit notes we assume you have had that experience at other restaurants. We hope you'll give us another chance to serve you.

    We frequent this restaurant all the time. But on this particular visit we were unpleasantly surprised. We sadt down, ordered drinks and appetizers. Our server didn’t return to take our order for 45 minutes. Not very apologetic for the timely delay, we preceded to order to only find out their stove was broken, and they only had one side dish to order. When the lack of service was brought to the attention of management it was just brushed off as if it wasn’t a lack of service on their part. I love this place so I’d probably go again, just really disappointed in how management responded.

    Great atmosphere with the live music, but this restaurant values that the most. The music is their selling point. The food is pretty average at best, drinks follow really similar creation. But my main issue is the staff. For a place trying to give off an elevated dining experience the staff is super green. They aren’t very attentive and I was actually asked to leave by a waitress that joined our table half way into our service because of a shift change. We saw her one time the entire night and the second time she came was to tell us to put my card on the table to pay. We weren’t done. This is my first review on this app so it took a lot for me to get to this point.

    We made reservations however when we arrived they made us wait for 20 minutes and wanted to seat us at the high table next to the bar. I suspect they didn't manage the amount of people coming in on a Saturday. They also rushed us after our dessert as it was obvious they were about turnover. Food was good in general however my filet was seasoned nicely but was really tough. Octopus appetizer was smokey and tender. Music was also a nice touch. Pricey for special occasions however be prepared to be rushed through your meal.
    VerseResponded on April 19, 2024
    Hi John, thank you for your feedback. We're sorry about the wait you experienced while we adjusted seating to accommodate your preference. We pride ourselves on accommodating our guests, but unfortunately, there were no notes regarding seating preference, our hope was that you would be satisfied with the arrangements made. We also wanted to apologize for feeling rushed, but 2.5 hours is stated upon confirmation of reservations for a party of 4. We know it may not seem long enough when you're having fun but it's the only way to ensure our guests the best experience. Under certain circumstances, we're able to extend this; however, on a Saturday night, we want to do our best to accommodate guests waiting for their tables. Again, we're sorry that 7:08-9:34 flew by but hope to host you soon!

    I loveddd my first time here. From the Hostess to the live music everything was on point. There’s a man, maybe the owner, who goes around sharing the history of the restaurant and it was so fun. My waiter was very attentive even though the place was packed on a Thursday. I ordered the lamb pasta and my friend ordered the braised beef with truffle potatoes. Everything was delicious. The portion size of the pasta lasted me 2 days. I’m not a fan of truffle but it was very light in flavor on the potatoes so I enjoyed that. The beef was beyonddd tender and the sauce was sweet and savory. The drink menu is specific. I wasn’t in the mood for any of it so I only ordered wine but next time I WILL try the espresso martini. The Dj was great and the live music sets were too. Overall will be back. Oh and our bill came up to $135 with tax which is a steal for two meals, two drinks, and a bottle of still water. Me and my friend was so amazed we wanted to order more.

    It is a lovely restaurant but it was so loud that it was impossible to carry on a contend when my friend sat next to me so we could talk, the server made an unpleasant fuss. At $300 for 2 people with just 1 glass of wine it is too expensive so wont be going back.
