    The little door has been and continues to be a Los Angeles hot spot and institution .. Greeting and service were amazing, food options stimulate our palate with different spices and traditional marroccan couscous options.. Great for vegetarians as well.. It is like traveling for an evening somewhere outside of the US.. Thank you

    It is a very cute place. The front of the restaurant is very cute. The back is just low lit and was very warm. We had the salmon and seared sea bass. The presentation was wonderful. The sauce with the sea bass was wonderful. The salmon was salty and the salad dressing was overpowered by the mustard. The cheese plate we had was wonderful. We really enjoyed it. Our waitress, while very nice with us, wasn't very attentive. We received more attention from the stewards. But, it was a nice experience.

    We celebrated my friend’s BD! Our first time dining here. We had reservations, but arrived early just when they opened the restaurant and were given the best seats in the patio. The ambiance was amazing. The server was friendly and checked on us frequently. The appetizer we ordered was the meze platter and it was good, but the sea bass entree was amazing. The portions were really big so we took the leftovers home. Overall it was a great experience and good quality food.

    The Little Door is a romantic, quaint, little restaurant with a genius of a chef. The ambiance is romantic and intimate; the place is dim and lightly lit with string lights. The food was amazing and each dish was a masterpiece unique in taste and appearance. Service was also amazing. I have been to many of the top spots in and around LA and this hidden jewel is a standout that I will certainly visit the next time I have a celebratory event. Chefs kiss for an exquisite dining experience.

    The food was good but not great. I ordered the seven vegetable couscous and my boyfriend had the salmon. The salmon was okay but the seven vegetable couscous was subpar. The ambiance is very pretty with dim lighting and small string lights which makes for a nice picture. Prices are reasonable.

    This is my favorite LA restaurant and have been visiting since 1996. The fact that it is still open in LA means that it is not a hot spot here today gone tomorrow. It is here to stay and those are the types of restaurants that I love.
