Our waiter informed us that the restaurant was "not prepared for a Saturday night." Pretty off putting and not great service. It is a fun tourist location, but I would not bring other visitors to this restaurant

Didn't really go for dinner, but just went for the warm cookie sundae. It was amazing! Cookie comes out warm in a skillet with ice cream and whip cream. Staff was very friendly. Plus they have a mechanical bull which was really entertaining watching people.

Unfortunately my Cajun burger wasn’t tasty. My husband said his ribs were dry. The fries and sweet potato fries where food. The dipping sauces were tasty. We drove an hour from home to come there and the food didn’t meet our expectations. It’s ok... sometimes it’s like that.

Had a reservation for 6 on New Years Eve. Had trouble with hostess stand. We requested patio seating where quieter, but they seated us in the main dining area, saying we had changed our mind — which we did not. So we waited a total of 1.5 hours past our reservation time to be seated. Another 15 mins before a server came to our table. And another 30 mins before our dinner arrived. Fun place with awesome bartenders, and food was good, just wish their hostess stand had it together.

Service - took several requests over 20 minutes to get silverware and napkins for the table. Not really attentive on refills or checking in.
Food - Two diners were served 1) Filet mignon was cold upon arrival and served with the wrong side order. The manager (not the server) stopped by to ask about the food and rush ordered a second one and comped that meal - 2) Combo of tri-tip and baby back ribs - the tri-tip was very fatty and room temperature cold the ribs were warm enough to enjoy and were tasty. The side of mashed potatoes was the only thing that was hot on the plate when served and the second side was also room temp cold. The appetizer of onion rings were well cooked and the sauces were tasty. At the bar the bartender was professional, quick, and mixed a good old fashioned. The noise level mid afternoon on Christmas was too loud for good conversation but it was a fun atmosphere. The parking lot was overwhelmed and didn't clear cars out of the street or the lot very well. Overall a very mediocre experience so i'm not sure i'd go back except for perhaps the bar.

The welcome was horrible. Couldn’t find our reservation and the only tables available were outside. Food was bad but nobody goes to Saddle Ranch for the cuisine. The bartender made our evening but still: what a rude welcome.

We received the best service we have received in years! The staff was fun and friendly, diverse and helpful. Nearly everyone that passed our table stoped to check on us. Happy hour is awesome! Our bill was such a pleasant surprise, dare I say cheap? I will absolutely be returning, and with friends and family! How refreshing to get such perfect service. I also had my favorite Mac n cheese for my birthday and dessert on the house!

Our favorite place to dine when we come to Los Angeles! We could easily have every meal here.
Great ambience.
Love watching the bull riders. But don’t go so easy on the ladies, guys... reverse discrimination...
The food is to die for.
The manager is totally on top of it and every staff manner is friendly. ( great hiring policy, guys)
They really seem to care about the costumer.
Only criticism... a little volume control on the music for us old timers, please.

Restaurant was understaffed and available staff were indifferent. It took an hour just to order food, get a glass of water and a few drinks. Everything was sort of average. I understand it is somewhat of an iconic institution but really? The best thing is it easily accommodated our Party of 22 people.

Have you ever been at a restaurant with a group of good friends in which something disappointing happens almost immediately, but you want to put a good face on things rather than be the spoilsport who puts everyone in a bad frame of mind? I really didn't mind the tacky, touristy cowboy decor, because this is Hollywood after all. At least it had plenty of flatscreens, so we could watch the USC/UCLA game. The problem is this place is filled with smiling, friendly servers who don't know what they are doing. It's hard not to like them, so I blame the managers for not training them properly and setting higher expectations. Here's the litany of woes we endured: 1) at the bar, we discovered our bartender could only pour one drink at a time (John Taffert would scream), and their featured specialty whisky drink I ordered ended up being a fruity grenadine colored joke in a old milk bottle, 2) when our entrees were served to our party of ten, they came in waves of 2 or 3 at a time (?), the servers were confused as to who ordered what, and the final person's entree arrived 10 minutes late, 3) my filet mignon was cooked just right (medium rare), but the grilled vegetables were so drenched in garlic, I gave up on them and ate my slightly undercooked baked potato, 4) one of our friends ordered a pasta dish, which came on a large, thin, uninsulated aluminum platter that allowed all the pasta at the edges to go cold before it even arrived, and only the center of the pasta was warm (they cooked her a new plate, er platter), 5) worst yet, another of our friends bit into a PIECE OF METAL that was in his food. The manager was highly apologetic, and focused on the other end of the table where the greatest disappointments seemed to be. But once our plates were cleared, how did he choose to make it up to us? Sending a bunch of desserts to our table, including a massive pink tower of cotton candy (?!?), rather than comp some of our entrees. This felt like Chucky Cheese for grownups.

We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and once it was 20 minutes after our time I asked how much longer it would be and got a shoulder shrug. After 40 minutes past our reservation i complained again and they finally sat us but separated our group. We were not sitting anywhere near each other. I was extremely unhappy and was about to leave when one male
server came up and pushed all tables near each other and got us a round of shots. It was a nice gesture and service was semi okay for the remainder of the time but I will never eat here again and make sure everyone knows how awful their hostess was and how reservations mean nothing since it still took over an hour to be seated.

At first we thought is anyone going to serve us, should we just leave but once our waiter came over it was top notch!! We had just arrived in LA after a 13 hour flight and dropping our bags of at the hotel and this place made us forget that we were tired and needed to get to bed. Menu great loads to choose from, beverages menu also terrific. Best thing ever was the candy floss dessert, each time one went past our table I was trying to get a photo of it and by the end of the night the waiter bought one to us on the house. We couldn't possibly eat it all so we shared it with as many as we could which made our night even more fun. The staff are there to make sure that you have a great time and they put everything into it. We love you James.

My guests and I were seated in a booth comfortably but then some other guests were seated across from us with one of the guests seated at the end of the table and in a pathway where other guests and the staff were walking in. In trying to squeeze past this guest inevitably our table kept getting bumped. This happened all night long. One of the staff members bumped our table so hard that she knocked the table into my chest. She looked back and then kept walking. No excuse me or any sort of apology. My daughter ordered her food well done and it came pretty rare. The rest of us were done with our meal before hers came back out. Our server James was excellent. The manager gave us free desserts as an apology for the spoiled evening but since we didn't want dessert anyway the desserts didn't sweeten our experience. Especially since there were four of us and we were only given 3 desserts.

Very mixed experience. The staff was very friendly and amazing. The environment was way too loud and out of control. The food was exceptional. Very delicious. We even got a free complimentary dessert. Our waiter was so sweet. I don’t know if he knew it was my boyfriends birthday or if he was just going above and beyond. I left him a more than generous tip according to the tip range at the bottom of the check. The next day I noticed the charge pending on my account twice. So instead of being out $125 for dinner I am out $250. Which is slightly impactful living in LA and trying to budget. Hopefully only the one charge goes through and I don’t get charged double for the meal. It was good but not $250 good. So yeah. Mixed experience.
