    Good food for the ribeye and the Caesar salad . The pizza came charred and the rigatoni was undercooked. Service was less than prompt. Side employee door kept being opened and ruined the ambiance. For a birthday meal it was disappointing.

    Waitress was stand off ish and could care less about customer service. She kept rushing us to order food and was clearing plates quickly. There were many tables open still so it’s not like people were waiting for us to leave. Our reservation was at 10:30pm and the waitress just seemed like she didn’t want to be there. For somewhere that’s hard to get a reservation and that’s pretty pricy you would think it would be better. Ps their cocktails kinda suck. Don’t need to go back.

    After reading the reviews I was prepared for a rude hostess, but while they weren’t overly nice, they certainly were professional and cordial to my party. The food was great, and ambiance was nice, but my table was awful. Although I had a reservation and arrived at the restaurant when there was only a few tables occupied, they put me at a table in a corner next to a door that people were constantly going in and out of, letting in a ton of light which was a lot since the restaurant is nearly pitch black inside. The table was also right next to the register, so it felt like more of a work station than a table. It also made it so that I didn’t even get to see the rest of the restaurant which was very disappointing. My advice to them would be to remove the tables behind the hostess stand. I would rather wait a few extra minutes for a table than be shoved in a corner that feels like an employee workstation.

    I saw a bunch of negative reviews online and have no idea why. I thought the food was tasty, and our server was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed everything we ate. My only gripe was that it was SO dark in there that i could not see anything at all. It's darker in there than my bedroom in the middle of the night. it's a bit strange. But maybe if i decide to have an extra-marital affair and need a really dark place where i can have a nice dinner and not be seen, this is the place! they have a strict no photo policy, but were clearly not enforcing any sort of dress code that many people griped about---there were plenty of people in t-shirts, jeans, sneakers. Maybe the pandemic loosened them up.

    I really wanted to love this place and have been really looking forward to trying it, so I was definitely pleasantly surprised to see an opening one night while looking for a last minute dinner spot on my stay here in L.A. It is gorgeous and has a crazy ambiance, amazing music and unique decor. I for one love a dark restaurant, so that was not an issue for me. The staff, from doorman to hostess to our server, were wonderful. Extremely polite. The issues came when we were immediately placed in a back table with no other patrons. We were dressed like most of the other patrons and ready to spend money there, so it was confusing and felt...not great. We were assured the area would be filling up shortly with other reservations. It did not. It unfortunately seems that any open tables you can book the same night are placed in back away from said fun ambience and unique decor. This seems to be a recurring theme through the reviews. I'm not one to complain and so took it graciously. The pizza was ok. Truffle fries were the best thing we had, but they're also hard to mess up. Drinks were good but extremely overpriced for what they are. The music was great but we were pretty much falling asleep in the back corner. Another weird thing to note is that you apparently must put your whole order in at once...our appetizer and pizza came together which is not what we wanted. Our table was wiped down as we finished eating with dishes still on the table. It felt extremely rushed. The whole visit from arrival to leaving was about 32 minutes long. We were planning to have a few drinks but very quickly decided to continue our night somewhere else. I'm hoping if I give this place another shot that it lives up to my expectations. Right now I'm in no rush to go back or reccomend

    Mala experiencia, festejaba el cumpleaños de mi esposa, llegamos con mucha anticipación para tomar unos tragos en la barra, desde que llegamos le avisamos a la host que teníamos reservación a las 9:30 por open table y ella nos la confirmo, incluso hizo un mal comentario de open table... dio a entender que por reservar a través de la aplicación nos merecíamos esperar, pasamos a la barra y cuando llego el momento de nuestra mesa me acerque y me dijo que aún no estaba... volví a los 15 min y me quiso dar una mesa alta en el mismo bar en Diseno yo estaba sentado, le comenté que nosotros esperábamos que nos sentara en el restaurante con respaldo para poder cenar cómodos y celebrar a mi esposa, me comento que entonces tenía que seguir esperando... cómo teníamos ya mucha hambre y ya habíamos pedido una entrada de calamares a la barra decidimos ir pidiendo la cena en lo que nos entregaban la mesa, 15'minutos más tarde llegó una persona para darnos la mesa pero se nos perdió y nos dejaron esperando parados, tratamos de regresarnos a la barra pero ya alguien se había sentado en nuestros lugares... finalmente nos llevaron a "la mesa" y ya estaba la comida que habíamos pedido en la barra ahí servida y fría... nos hicieron pasar un momento muy triste y decepcionante más por ser el cumpleaños 39 de mi esposa... ella salió muy triste pues habíamos cancelado MR CHOW para conocer este mal Restaurante.

    They took 1.5 hrs to seat us. Then put us outside where no one tended to my group. We ended up being rushed to eat because it was midnight by the time the food came. Our reservation was for 945 pm.

    We decided to dine at TheNiceGuy based on overall cool vibe portrayed via Instagram. Our service was below average, our table server provided our check while we were eating our mains.She provided food and drink recommendations with little knowledge and rushed us through our evening. We ended up moving to the bar where we noticed no one was sat at our table. Overall not worth the $$$ for the experience.

    Loved it!!! This place e is amazing. We had an early seating (6:00) and got a booth and enjoyed outstanding food, service and ambiance. Then… a duo played and the female who sang was absolutely amazing. I asked who she was but the hostess said it was under “Brandon”(he was also awesome). In any case-we loved our time there and definitely was on the verge of staying too long as it’s just the type of place you want to stay too long at😀 We will definitely return
