About

Rascal is an ideal choice when looking for a great evening hangout in Los Angeles. For dinner or happy hour, the simple menu allows for intense dedication to each dish. For example, take the old classic of mac and cheese and kick it up with blue cheese, sharp cheddar, onion puree and arugula chimichurri. Even fried chicken gets special attention with the addition of pancetta gravy and marinating the boneless chicken in buttermilk.

Rascal continues that inventiveness into dessert with lemon cheese cake in a jar that includes cheese cake mousse, lemon curd and ginger crust crumbs. The bar is no different with inventive cocktails, cider on tap, draft beer, bottled beer and wines. Reservations and orders to go are accepted at Rascal.

I found Rascal on Yelp, and we decided to try it out since it was local to us. We are so glad we did. Good food, good service, and lots of energy all around us.

I had the shrimp roll (like a lobster roll, but with shrimp) and it was great. My only dig on it was that it was perhaps a bit too small for the $14 price.

The service was pleasant and attentive.

The only other issue I have was that I made a reservation many days in advance, but we were seated close to the bathroom. This meant I was bumped into numerous times, there was a lot of activity near us, and it was, you know, near the bathroom. I would think someone who thinks in advance to let a restaurant know they will be there would get one of the better seats. I am guaranteed income, not a random person on the street. Not to mention it was a Tuesday night. A reserved cover on a Tuesday ought to be treated like gold.

I love eating at Rascal. All-night Happy Hour on Mondays is a great treat. Versatile setting and excellent food and wines make it perfect for either dates or business dinners.

Highly recommend. And be sure to try the brussels sprouts.

Came here on a Monday night, which has happy hour ALL night! The burger was great, and only $6 because it was a happy hour special... Ridiculous! Definitely recommend.

Food was generally on the good side, though more attention could be paid to the type of bread used on various sandwiches. Service was spotty -- friendly, but our party saw others come in, sit down, eat and leave before we received our meal. This Saturday early eve seemed sleepy, with the A/C off until we asked for it to be cooled down. The burger was good (the bun is too hard), brussels sprouts had nice flavor (but were drowning in sauce), the French dip just okay (pretzel bun-odd choice). Tater tots good. Happy hour menu is robust, and is the best case for going to Rascal -- that menu has value. An okay time, but a little lazy to make me encourage my party back again when there are so many places that pay attention to the details better.

We came here for dinner and drinks before a show at the El Rey. It's less than a mile away so convenient for us. The sangria was great, the server was so nice and treated us very well. We had the fried chicken sandwich, the eggplant parmesan sandwich, short rib bowl, faro and cauliflower salad and brussel sprouts. It was all very good. The brussels were a little too heavy on cream and bacon. We also had the banana cake, butterscotch pudding in a jar to share. Also very good. Great prices and really nice people who run the place. We were treated very well.

Really enjoyed my first time here - happy hour specials are great ($6 for drinks/food) & the service was excellent. Definitely a great casual spot - the gyros, salmon tartare, and meatballs were all very good.

This is a great new neighborhood gem, just off of Wilshire on La Brea. I've driven by 100 times, so my wife and I finally decided to give it a try one Friday night, and what a great decision that was. They have a great wine list and a very good selection of craft brews. The ambiance is upbeat and lively, and the staff are all very helpful and attentive. The salmon was just spectacular, although I'm going to have to try the burger the next time I go, which will be soon!
