Easter Sunday brunch - the service was good, the drinks were great, and the food was just okay. All in our party had a “roast” of some kind, and all, sadly, were disappointed. Our food was bland. I’d return, but would try something else on the menu.

Server was more interested in sitting down with people at the table next to us, then in waiting on us. Had to get up and ask her(sitting at the next table) for our check at the end of dinner. She told us she was not working anymore and from her seat told someone behind the bar to get us our check. Won’t be back.

Chef Brandan Collins is an LA treasure. Our second visit since he took over the menu. Thank God for full and generous portions of such delectable dishes- all the more fun to share. We had the scallops and short ribs both to die for. But do not miss ordering the Cesar Salad- truly one of the best we’ve ever had just perfect and glad we ordered the large one to share. Fabulous service all around - they kindly comped us on corkage given our return visit. Can’t wait to go back.

Although the food here is excellent, the chef does not allow any substitutions and refuses to cook the food as the customer desires. The manager is very kind and hospitable in trying to explain this but it's a shame because the ambiance outside is quite nice. I've been several times. Once they would not cook my filet as I requested because I simply like medium plus. I do not like any even slightly undercooked part of my meat. Then I was there again recently for brunch and they wouldn't cook my eggs dry. I go out to eat to pay for someone to cook for me. If I wanted to be told how to eat my food I would visit my mother. I pay to have food cooked for me the way I like. They do have a wonderful bottomless mimosa, bloody mary or margarita for brunch.

Wilshire used to be my favorite "to go" restaurant, but with the new chef and new management, everything is ruined: The food verges on being inedible. The guanciale that came with scallops was incredibly tough - probably sitting around in a hot oven for days. Service was abominable and slow as a glacier. Drinks took almost 25 minutes to arrive. Check came before desserts came. Wilshire needs to go backot its roots and reestablish itself soon or else it will be a footnite in history.

The food is amazing, and Brendan Collins is my favorite chef in LA. Unfortunately our waiter only came by once to ask for our drink order and once to drop off the check (in which he said nothing and made no eye contact). We actually had to flag down another waitress to put in our food order after 20 minutes of waiting.

I will be back because the place is amazing, but I will try to avoid that server.

We went for the Sunday roast. It consisted of four large slices of roast beef, some roast potatoes, vegetables, cauliflower in cheese sauce, and three Yorkshire puddings! With a side of jus and horseradish. All this for $27. The food was good and there was a tremendous quantity.
They also have the same with roast chicken instead of beef. A great old-fashioned Sunday dinner.

After ordering a drink I was given a wrong cocktail. Isn’t a Grey Goose on the rocks simple enough. Instead of the slice of lime needed to squeeze into the drink, I received merely a peel dropped into the liquid. Our party of four wanted to order a variety of appetizers to share, but the selection was extremely limited, and quite difficult to split. I ordered the short rib as an entree and was extremely disappointed. In fact it was one of the worst dinners ever. We will not be going back!

Presentations were terrific,but overall the flavors could use more salt. Tendency towards sweet rather than savory on some of the things we ordered. Wait staff and hostess were fantastic and ambience can’t be beat.

The food here is top class - we went for Sunday lunch and all British people should have the Wilshire on their radar. The Roast is everything we expect from home plus, plus, plus... and price-wise is a fantastic value. Sat on the patio by the fireplace - just a great setting. But this is a terrific restaurant for ALL food lovers, not just the British.

Next visit will be during the week - the dinner menu looks brilliant. The chef/owner Brendan Collins is well known in L.A. food circles and for good reason - he's inventive and passionate about his food and it shows. I highly recommend The Wilshire...

Food was quite good and patio is lovely, but service was terrible. We were there for 45 minutes without anyone coming to take our order. We had to flag someone down and talk to the manager. Even with that we had another big service problem between the main course and dessert.

The food was fantastic. I had curried chicken sandwich, you have to try it. I’m from England, my friend from Australia, she had fish and chips, we are picky, and can say probably best I’ve ever had since coming to LA in 1992. I’m eager to try the English Sunday Roast.
