The wine list is focused on Riesling, with other whites and reds coming primarily from French or California producers that share an elegant, restrained style. The cocktail list is seasonal and changes frequently.

There is a bar menu which is served at the bar and lounge until 2am, nightly.

    jordan kahn is an artist and its truly a shame that this restaurant is closing - its one of the biggest losses in la for those who understand and appreciate not only great food but an extraordinary effort and imagination of a truly talented chef. we will miss the amazing creations from the kitchen and the bar. we wish the best of luck to this truly amazing team and hope that they will find a new place where this great art can be enjoyed!

    Sunday night - out of crab and Halibut and foraged mushroom presentation had very few mushrooms (sliced regular mushrooms). I had eaten there before so I know what the presentation should have been. I felt like a sucker. Cocktail menu is one of the better ones in LA. Very creative.

    This place is for a special occasion, interesting presentation and taste. Small portion for the price. It was listed as French and Vietnamese, most of the dishes are contemporary American

    We were pleasantly surprised...the restaurant is classified as a Vietnamese restaurant but it is anything but. Not knowing what to order we took the advise of the waitress and every dish, (it was a five course dinner) was delicious. My only disappointment was that the bartender didn't have what she needed to make my favorite drink, a Cadillac margarita. This restaurant isn't for everyone, ( as an example there are no salads on the menu)) but for a dinner experience that is completely different, this is the place. I guess maybe it's a little too different, I was told it's closing in two weeks. Also, it's a little on the expensive side, we paid $266 for two people, dinner, and three drinks.

    Maybe it's because they are closing at the end of the month, but we were very disappointed with our experience. Sure the food is creative and beautifully presented, but the explanation and attention given it by the waitstaff was badly lacking. Our food was sat in front of us with a brief and not very enthusiastic description of what it was. If I were the chef who had created these beautiful dishes and saw a waitperson serving it that way, I'd be insulted and furious. The service and ambience did not match the talent of the chef. I'm glad they are leaving as I think the location is also not very impressive with no valet parking or decent parking nearby. We would not go back even if they were not closing. Too bad.

    I for one am happy that they are closing, as I'm excited for Jordan Kahn's next venture and after visiting again the other evening, realized how much I dislike the location and the ambience of the restaurant and do not think it matches well with the food. The food is exquisite. It truly is the most unique in Los Angeles and Kahn is one of the most talented chefs in the world. But the location is way too loud and cavernous and too much like a bar; which stands to reason as the restaurant originally started as a "tavern." And the service is negligent, as would befit a tavern. So, I can't wait to see what's next!

    Molecular gastronomy at a very high level. The servers explain the food as they bring it out, and even then it's all something of a mystery, but a delicious and exciting one. Presentation is fantastic. For instance, that pale white parmesan-crisp looking thing on top of the uni is actually a condensed almond milk chip, or something. A few dishes are somewhat mundane (the small plate grilled beef, and the mushroom on kibble with weeds), but mostly the flavors are multi-faceted and delectable. The redwood dessert is among the best I've ever had.

    This was my second time going to Red Medicine when I have travelled to LA and the second time was as good as the first. The service was great-so friendly and helpful, the vibe was laid back and LA style and the food is to die for, the chef is incredibly talented. A MUST to have the Pork & Beef brisket (large serving). A shame it will be closing down in a month as Myself and my friends & family absolutely love it & look forward to it when coming to LA. Hope there will be a relocation of Red Medicine or at least the chef to continue cooking... Because he is way too talented. Red medicine would be great to be in Sydney, Australia. If in LA, this is a must plus the pricing is very good for the quality and quantity of all meals.

    We ordered the Chicken Dumplings, Trout Roe, Young Turnips, and Foraged Mushrooms. Food was mostly delicious, except for the frozen snap peas on trout roe. Dessert was very good, as well. The decor was nice but was expecting more ambiance. Service was mixed and could be improved. Overall, pricey but a fun culinary experience.

    The food and presentation were amazing--and our waiter was very cordial and good. Interestingly, the servers seemed very pompous and snobby, even though our waiter was not. Enough so to slightly take away from the experience. Not interested in pomposity when I spend a couple hundred for dinner. Everything else was excellent. The scallops cooked on rocks were amazing. So were the foraged mushrooms.

    We have dined here many times and always enjoy the experience. This place is very creative with both taste and presentation. We have notice that there is a little inconsistency of some of the items. We had the chicken dumplings which are very good, but this last time they we over cooked and a little dry. They looked over cooked so I was surprised they sent them out that why. They were still pretty good, but not up to their normal standard. We go to Red Medicine when we attend concerts at the Saban Theater, and for us that tradition will continue.

    This was my third trip to Red Medicine and I went again because the first two visits were jaw-droppingly good. I had a foodie friend in from Hong Kong and was really proud to be able to take her to a restaurant I'd enjoyed so much. Truthfully, the ambience and really poor acoustics in the restaurant have always been a sore point - it was much easier to hear the loud conversation going on at the table next to us than to hear each other talk. I can't believe that a chef who has (previously) cared so much about their food would want the experience otherwise impinged on. But for whatever reason the food this time was really really poor. Still very visually pleasing, very expensive, but the flavor completely unremarkable. Will not go again.

    Welcoming staff and knowledgable. The ambiance is perfectly dim. Fishing for utensils out of a can on my table wasn't my favorite. Food is very pretty and kept me entertained. A lot of pieces to a dish. Spent time trying to figure out the best combo of pieces on each plate. Lots of acidic components to the tasting menu. Nice cocktails. A very enjoyable time overall. I do recommend giving it a try. I would be okay eating here once per year.

    This was my third outing to Red Medicine over the course of my year in LA, and I must say it was the best! Upon being seated I found that a few of my favorites had been removed from the menu that the chef might try 'something fresh.' And let me tell you, he did! He always seems to blow my mind with his inventive creations, which are not only completely balanced, but inspired 'risks' for the palette. I mean, come on, where else can you get amazing tartare and have everyone you bring for the first time love it!? On top of this, the current cocktail menu is phenomenal! From whimsical floral cocktails to spicey jalapeño tequila drinks, anyone will find a beverage of choice here! To say the least, Red Medicine has Mixology Magic!

    This place was in our family's (5 member) food bucket list. WAIT: 3mins, WHILE WAITING: i caught the look of two servers, the first looked at our grp fr left to right, up&down, thinking ok i will not let this bother me, i then looked around and thats when I caught the other server staring at us. Intimidating?up to you if you let it (lets just say we didnt experience this at Spago BH the night before when all 5 of us had dinner) DRINK: ice tea was good FOOD: 5 sml/1large plate and they were awesome! MAIN SERVER: it was the one that stared at us while waiting. The reason for the 4 star. She started by talking "down" to us. We dont judged people at first meeting but it was the same dessert time but we didnt let that ruined our experience..

    How delightful to have Red Medicine's tasting menu available last Friday night. It's simply superb. Not only are the ingredients and individual food items of the highest quality, but there's both a playfulness to the preparation and the presentation, and a level of attentiveness to the way the dinner is shaped as a whole. This is not a random series of dishes, but a carefully crafted dinner experience. All the wait staff were knowledgeable and seemed as delighted in each course as we were.

    We had a nice dinner at Red Medicine. The prices are a little "high" but that's probably related to the amount of time they spend making the dishes look like art work. It's definitely worth trying. The chicken dumplings were awesome. Apparently the "large dishes" are for four or more people so my wife and I weren't able to try those.
