What a find!!! My wife and I were looking for a "different" place to go on a Sunday morning and came across Wolf. With our last name the same, we knew we had to give it a try. Make sure you ask for Olivia for your server. She guided us through the menu, picked out some great items (all very different). This is a fabulous find. We will definitely be back. Great cocktails, great service, great food!!! Enjoy!!!

The food was good we enjoyed the pork belly , the chicken and our little gem salad and himachi. The service however was incredibly slow. We waited and waited on our entrees and our second round of drinks. The waiter was nice and the food was enjoyable.

This is the third time I have been to Wolf. I really like this restaurant from the food, to the wine list, the cocktails and we had excellent service. My only complaint would be that it definitely gets loud when the restaurant is full, and it became a little bit hard to hear my date.
But overall, worth going.

We made an early reservation at 5:30 before a movie. When we arrived, we were told they were serving a limited menu until 6:00. We should have left at that point but we figured by the time we found another restaurant we would be too rushed to make the movie. Bad decision. The choice was basically a chicken sandwich and a hamburger. The chicken was flavorless and the hamburger was a mess with nacho cheese. The flash fried potatoes were good.
But bottom line: DONT take reservations online for dinner and then not serve dinner at that reservation time.

Somewhat randomly chose this restaurant for brunch on Easter Sunday and it was fantastic. What a great find! The only slight downside was the lack of valet parking but we found a spot in the hood relatively easily--for a Sunday afternoon. The service at this restaurant is really noteworthy and the food was just incredible. The pancakes shared by the entire table were the best we've ever had. The side dish of potatoes in some sort of mustard-based sauce were off the charts phenomenal and I'm not a potato freak by any means. Everyone loved their food. Love this restaurant!

This restaurant had a beautiful ambiance, excellent waiters, delicious cocktails and yummy desert. However, the menu is small and limited. I didn't find that the food was particularly delicious either. Although I wouldn't go back for dinner there on my own terms, I would go again if I were asked.

The ‘snacks’ were very small and the deduction of value for the restaurant. Entrees took a very long time to get, not the fault of the server but at the fault of the kitchen. If you’re going to charge a mandatory 3% service charge for the kitchen then make sure things are in order. The entrees were delicious but overall had some things to work on.

The menu for Brunch was interesting with a wide variety of choices. The Golden Eggs dish which was delicious, came with perfectly over easy eggs and sauteed spinach. The Shakshuka was really good, very flavorful and with toast done the way I like it for dipping. Loved the Chia pudding with berries. I'd eat that every day. Will definitely try and put Wolf into dining rotation.

Being a Professional in the industry for over 30 years,...it can be hard for me to find a restaurant that really encompasses the spirit of the food they serve in all ways possible.
I have found one. From the moment we walked in the door, our experience began.
I felt as though I had just arrived at an old friends house and we were embraced by smiling attentive staff and a simple, clean, warming ambiance, and were promptly seated.

Our server was both knowledgeable and professional and worked with us on special requests in seating and menu items with a smile, and a sense of warmth I rarely see nowadays.

The cuisine,....I just can’t find the words. Presentation was world class, 5 star, and just some of the best work I’ve seen in a long time. The taste and food quality, surprisingly,... was so good,...I just sat there and stared at my friends. We all just, one at at time, said “Oh my God”. After about ten minutes of trying and sharing the five different dishes we had on the table,..it was affirmed that each and every single dish, appetizer,....everything,....was quite simply, ...the best food ANY of us has ever had.

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better,..I found out that their Executive Chef, had brought out the food himself, and refilled our water,..without the usual pomp or announcement that most Execs would demand.

The General Manager stopped by our table and chatted with us for almost 20 minutes and was one of the most Genuine, caring people I have ever met.

I have found my new home, my place to eat, drink, and belong.
Bravo to all the members of the “Wolf” pack.

See you soon,
Sincerely, Affectionately,

Chef Todd Christensen
(Your new biggest fan)

The housemade cornbread with the soup was very poor and the hamachi crudo was bland. The risotto was decent and the drinks (cocktails were ok). When this place first opened it was FAR better. quite a shame but LA restaurants are changing all the time and 2 years on this place hasn’t kept up the pace at all.

I took my colleague to dinner here after a long day of work and it was the perfect setting. Not too loud and the cocktails were delicious - we both had the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing - so good! I highly recommend the Pork Belly. The banana cake with ice cream was also the perfect cap to the night. Thanks Wolf!

Took my son to Sunday Brunch for our monthly one on one. I was super excited because he is an avid food critic ... he is 11 and brutally honest. He thought the food was genius, cooked to perfection, and we had a lovely chat. My kale salad was amaze and the Bloody Mary was my kind of spicy. Highly recommend this restaurant for brunch! The chicken and waffles is historically awesome.

Always, always exquisite. Lexi took excellent care of us and exhibited vast knowledge of the menu. The food and drinks were fantastic and creatively crafted. The ambiance is wonderfully cozy (and romantic, depending on your company) and everyone at Wolf is so knowledgeable, accommodating, genuinely kind, and pleasantly down to earth. Could not have been better. If you go, definitely ask for Lexi. She's professional, so sweet (and hilarious!), clearly knows her stuff, and goes above and beyond to attend to each and every patron, quickly tuning into individual needs and providing informed recommendations. Thank you for a lovely experience, and see you soon!
