What Insiders Are Saying
Kettle Black is a kind-of-casual, kind-of-fancy Italian spot in Silver Lake that knows its way around a wood-fired oven.
It was great dinner, I've been to this restaurant twice and both of the time went well.
However, server is just so slow....
Service super slow. When we pointed it out to the service she didn’t apologize but made an excuse. 3 different people helped us we didn’t even know who our server was.
Finically our food came out a 1hr & 15mins after & it was WRONG. At this point we asked to speak to a manager & then our service improved but it was to late.
The table next to us came in way after us, ate & left b4 we even got out food. The other table next to us had to get up to ask the host why they were never greated it’s after 20mins of sitting there.
It was our first time there & the service was so poor & the Brix Chx was dried out & overcooked with no flavor/seasoning at all.
Will not be back!
Cozy, cute but cool enough
Food was salty and came out really late about an hour. There was not lot people but Me and my friend waiting the food for so long.
My birthday was great
I found Kettle Black through OpenTable and was pleasantly surprised with the overall experience. Due to my travel schedule for work, I find myself left wanting. Kettle Black left me wanting to go back again. The food was great and the service was excellent. We will definitely go back.
Ambiance is all this place has going for them...
Had such a good experience at Kettle Black. We only had one night in LA and felt like the dinner left us totally satisfied in every way. The cocktails were delicious. We shared several plates and I definitely think that's the way to do it! Everything is so good. Definitely recommend.
They lost our order and it took 45 mins to get food.
The pizza - which was late - was cold. And the prosciutto was just tossed on at the last second completely uncooked.
Usually enjoy this place - but not going back
Food was delicious! A bit expensive, but worth it!
The experience was great. I would definitely come back.
Super friendly staff and great food and drinks!
Excellent food every time we go. Superlative service! Always the loveliest, kindest professionals working and serving there. Love this place so much. Gets better every time we go.
Drinks were decent, but all the food was very heavy-handed. Meat and pastas were extremely salty, and salad was over-dressed
Happy hour is hreat. The Sip and Slice is my go to choice.
I really enjoyed Kettle Black. The sourdough was exceptional, as was the street corn. Good wine list and beautiful ambiance. Perfect for many occasions.
The housemade pasta was transcendental. SO GOOD. MY husband is the pickiest of the picky ones and hel loved the bolognese. He will usually only eat "spaghetti noodles", and he absolutely loved this. The Pizza crust had just the right amount of chew and flavor, and the leeks and mushroom had the perfect flavor profile. We went for our 10th wedding anniversary dinner and would go back again and again.
My GFs and I came here at an odd hour (330 pm on a Saturday). Unfortunately, we were there at a time between two limited menu options (brunch and happy hour). We all had chopped salads that were delicious but it would have been nice to have more options. I had a major craving for their pasta, which, unfortunately, I was unable to order.
As for their food, the dessert, the "budino," which was ?chocolate/caramel is the most mouth-watering, delicious thick "pudding." I would go again just for that.
Great space - good service - friendly environment
Room too loud.
Food too average.
Meal too expensive (for what it was.)
Service pleasant but not stellar.
Done with this place.
The servers were lovely and friendly and fairly attentive . The ambiance is nice and it is a cool restaurant .
Cesar salad was not good . past bolognese was really salty and my companion said the same about her pecorrino pasta .
its a shame cause i like the ambience and the location but this is second time here with just average food
Happy Hour. Always have a great time. Love the Sip and Slice with Red.
The place had a great vibe and really cute place, but the food was horrible and not worth the high prices! I would reccomemd only going for drinks.
Good food and drinks. Tables are a little close together.
Fantastic happy hour, great pasta, drinks on point 👌
Brunch on Saturday was very good. I have been there for dinner too and of course, that’s extraordinary! Great place, great decor, great service and amazing food!
The food, drinks, and service were all excellent! Quiet enough to have a conversation with a beautiful ambiance. I got the mezcal cocktail. It was great. We ordered a bunch of dishes to share: panzanella salad, octopus, meatballs, cacio e pepe, parpadelle, and the budino. The only thing that was just okay was the parpadelle. Everything else was excellent! We were pretty stuffed and had leftovers (2 people). Will definitely be back!
Great food and service. The ambiance is lively without being too loud or distracting. The wait staff is professional and hip. Food was ample, interesting and delicious,
Was a first time visit for all 3 of us in the party. I had seen that there were some mixed reviews - mainly based on service. But he menu was still very appealing. So I took a chance. And all 3 of really enjoyed the food. And the service was quite good, especially for Silver Lake. I’d happily go back.
After the original staff left the restaurant quality declined. We were pleasantly surprised during this busy with the positive experience
It was lovely
Was forced to wait an extra 15 mins even with a res, while walk-ups were seated before us. Food is over seasoned to mask the low-quality of the ingredients. This is particularly noticeable in the pizza/quality of cheese used.
Extremely loud, not particularly good value. Won't return.
Great food and service was fantastic. We ordered 2 frozen cocktails before we ordered food and the frozen mix machine was acting up so there was a delay in getting the frozen drinks so the manager offered to comp us 2 cocktails for the delay. That’s what I would call great customer service. Will definitely be back again
A fun and hip Italian restaurant with great drinks
Very nice ambiance! Cool vibe with very good food. Pizza was great.
Great bartender. Great cocktails. Great local spot--sat at the bar before heading to Dodger game.
This is my second time to eat at Kettle Black. Both times the food and service has been outstanding.
Loved the bread and clams.
