    The place is absolutely gorgeous& Christmas lights were beautiful! Made a reservation for birthday, we were running late and thankfully the host changed reservation time for us. Service itself was not great. Our server was constantly changing and servers just tossed food on the table and left without explanation while other tables were getting short briefings about the dish they ordered. Food was okay, they said all the dishes were shared portions and we will be needing to order 6-7 dishes for 4 people. Food portions were extremely small, we left hungry after finishing our meals and had to order a second meal at Urth Caffe next door. I’m assuming they don’t do any service for birthdays because we didn’t receive any kind of service when we ordered desserts but that’s okay (not every restaurants do that so it’s not a problem) -just keep that in mind if you are expecting some writings on the plate saying happy birthday or candles.

    Needed a break from the routine so we had brunch with G&TG if not for the light sprinkles we had at the end of our brunch. It would have been a perfect start to the week.

    We have been here a few times and have had to wait a long time for our table at least twice. That said, they did give us each a free drink and were very polite about it. The worst part is that the chairs at the bar and at the table are very uncomfortable! I had to sit on my coat! The caning has collapsed. They need to be replaced. Thank you.

    This was the best meal and experience I have ever had at a restaurant. The food was delicious, the service was so impressive and the restaurant itself was beautiful. Three of us shared the olive sourdough with whipped feta, grilled corn, lamb satay, grilled skirt steak, chili lime crunch chicken thighs, sticky toffee pumpkin spice latte cake and chocolate peppermint crunch. Everything was beyond delicious. So many wonderful flavors in each dish. We’ll definitely be returning!

    We were so looking forward to this dining experience. It didn't totally disappoint but neither was it outstanding. There are a plethora of servers...more than is necessary. Their approach to food is on a share basis and if you order something that is not enjoyed by all at your table...too bad. Drinks should have been served BEFORE food and they weren't Hot food should be served HOT and our fish was only lukewarm. The ambience is a delight and service was abundantly attentive.

    I was truly disappointed by my experience here. I had heard such phenomenal things about the restaurant but unfortunately, it was a completely underwhelming experience. We were seated well after our reservation, we had to ask multiple times for our waitress, the food was slow to come out and we found a hair in one of our dishes. I also didn’t find the food to be particularly good. The bathrooms were also not clean. I do not think I would ever come back based on this experience which is unfortunate.

    It was truly a dining experience! I gave all categories a 5 star- except noise a 4- but I'm 68🤪. Every bite was WOW. It's a trendy restaurant with NO trendy vibe. ALL are welcome. All are enjoying their experience and sharing it with gratitude. What a fabulous needed achievement. The wait staff, clean up and delivery- just so authentic. I'm old and have money to eat anywhere- but I can't stand the fake pretentiousness that can be LA. I'm so looking forward to sharing your restaurant with my friends and family. PS- Holiday decorations were spot on. Please share my gratitude to all that contributed to our amazing evening.😍

    The food there is always fantastic. Such a great menu. Brunch and dinner. However, the service is just ok and that takes away from the whole experience. I’d start by replacing those two girls on the front and hire someone enthusiastic with charm and more interest in your restaurant. Don’t just rely in your kitchen - you can be so much better!

    Host was friendly and took us to our table upon check in. Waitress was prompt upon taking drink and food orders but then disappeared through the dinning experience. Had to ask busboys for assistance. Food was not anything to write home about. Dishes were one note and didn’t taste any different from one dish to another, Tried a good amount of 6 dishes and the fried rice and hash was the better of the six dishes. One dish didn’t arrive and when asked, it took a long time to make which perhaps they forgot about the order. All around nice ambiance but we probably won’t be back.

    Very flavorful food but the servings are too small for the price. We ordered the chili-lime crunch chicken thigh for $25 and it literally was one chicken thigh. For $28, the pan roasted red fish was about 3 oz. For dessert, we had miso butterscotch budino and mango sticky rice. Both were very good. I don’t think I’ll be back.

    Second time at the restaurant. The food was good however, asking us to order everything at once and then not giving us guidance on the fact that we ordered way too much. An hour and 45 minutes later and our entrées still not there. We ended up taking three entrées home.

    After a small wait our party was ushered to an interior table in a quieter portion of the restaurant, where we were quickly approached by our waitress who, along with other wait staff attended to our order. The food was delivered a dish at a time, in a timely order. Delicious food!! We followed this with three dessert orders that we noticed, given they were shared, were well suited to each other, and followed each other very well. Wonderful evening. Hats off to all!

    Overall we are happy. I personally feel the flavors are too overpowering in most dishes we ordered. It’s like a circus in my mouth. In my opinion a few composed flavors is enough for a dish. This is just my opinion and opinion of my guests others might feel different.

    Loved the goat fashioned, crispy garlic atop naan with smooth + tasty hummus duos. The corn was an incredible flavor bomb and pleasant surprised that it was on the cob and not esquite-style. The oysters had many levels of umami with the sausage butter; we were shocked that the portion only had two oysters for the price. Same for the grilled skirt steak. Very tasty and made seven slices of meat? Overall, the chefs were amazing to accommodate my allergies to nightshades-even separating dishes. We tipped well for the great service, ambience, etc. I'd go again for drinks and appetizers only.
