Ordered a $165 steak that came out cold and late
Terrible service and food
Been eating there for years and not sure what has happened but was nothing like your usual Spago experience.
It was okay. food was not worth it. Service was nice
We were celebrating our anniversary and were really disappointed we chose this restaurant to end this past visit to Beverly Hills. The service was pleasant and attentive however the food was extremely underwhelming, the atmosphere was off putting, and the lack of heaters in an outside tent made it a very uncomfortable experience. We started with the smoked salmon pizza and the salmon was either terrible quality or old. I’ve had a better lox bagel from the airport’s Einstein. The server said their steaks are usually slightly undercooked but when our entrees finally arrived what was supposed to be a med rare steak came out med well and was followed by a very sad, bland, and over cooked lobster risotto. The best part of the meal were our drinks and the fries. Luckily we had been trying out restaurants all day so we weren’t hungry enough to make a fuss. We come here every time we are in town and the quality has significantly decreased, it didn’t even feel like we were in Beverly Hills anymore.
My wife and I were greeted with a quick up and down glance before we were seated in the back of the outdoor restaurant near a draft. We passed by plenty of other tables that were appropriate for 2 people. In case it matters, I am dark-skinned, with a shaved head, and a cardiologist. I was ready to splurge but instead I wanted to the night to end early at first but my wife and I were going to be good sports and decided to just ignore that initial slight. Unfortunately the food was subpar. Our apps were under seasoned - mushroom risotto and sunchokes. Thankfully our mains were good - scallops and schnitzel - but we were then left disappointed with dessert - the pumpkin “basque” cheesecake is just a regular cheesecake. I’d be wary of using the term “basque cheesecake” in LA where Dave Beran’s basque cheesecake is famous amongst true foodies. Overall, this restaurant is all pomp with little substance. My wife and I dine out frequently in LA and we will never come back to Spago.
Salmon pizza and cocktails were
Skip the tuna cones
I have been coming to Spago for over 7years, this was the first time where food and ambiance was just flat out terrible. Food was cold(barely lukewarm at best) ,our seating area was unacceptable and uncomfortably cold, presentation of ALL courses were disappointing and messy!
Not cozy or romantic…. Picture a huge outdoor tent with cold drafts and bad decor. This has obviously turned into a tourist attraction, zero personalized service and a very less than mediocre experience.
The food is still great. The service is the best, bar none. However, the Tent is miserable. Difficult to hear, ugly, just plain awful. It’s bizarre that they haven’t moved back into the restaurant. I only left to conclude that they like having the extra tables.
I love Spago. First restaurant in LA I went to, went there after my wedding at BH city hall… but I won’t be back until the tent is gone. It just ruins the dining experience. Sorry.
We came to LA for a weekend getaway and thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Spago. The ingredients are very fresh and the food was perfectly balanced with the right flavors. We will come back again the next time we go to LA. But do make an appointment as soon as possible
We go to Spago on my wife’s birthday every year and on Valentine’s Day. This year was especially special because they built a new outdoor tent. $1 million plus environment with excellent service and heaters and lots of space. Clearly Covid conscious, a revamped menu with additional options and desserts. Plus the classics. Highly recommend it. A+
The food, service and Ambience was excellent and the value was reasonable. It was A great experience.
Celebrated birthday - Sami & Will made it memorable! Delicious champagne started the evening perfectly. Sami recommended appetizers, salads, main course and dessert - one plate after another, followed up with double espresso! Chocolate chip cookies and special whipped cream as a birthday surprise at no charge! A perfect evening for a great celebration! Thank you Sami and Will!
The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because our server left us half way through the meal and pawned us off to another server. I get servers get cut if things are slow, but with a $400 meal, it's part of the experience. Other than that it was very good.
The crème fraiche was too sweet and Mille-feuille too buttery on the caviar appetizer. Generous amount of caviar but it’s flavor was overpowered by other aspects of the dish.
The duck and Brussels sprouts were cooked perfectly but slightly under seasoned. Technically good but nothing really ‘popped’.
I would refuse to sit in the outdoor tent again as it was cold without any heaters and there were a few gnats. Service was pleasant but very slow between courses checking to see if I wanted anything else.
I was not overly impressed by Spago. It was just average food and overpriced. We were seated outside and it was a chilly night, I was very surprised they didn't have heaters outside like most restaurants do when it's cold. It was my first time in L.A. and I was not overly impressed. I probably would not return. I spent the earlier part of my trip in Palm Springs and ate at Melvin's now that was amazing!
For the first twenty minutes the service was awful. Then one in our party went back and talked to the maistre dee and things got better but they were never up to standard.
Great, attentive server. Relaxing atmosphere. Delicious food.
Over rated, over priced. Typical run robotic corporate run restaurant.
Wife was served under cooked chicken and the waiter said it was meant to come out like that. We still sent it back to finish cooking, when he came back with it he said, the chef did undercook it and apologized. So lied to by the server telling my wife to basically eat very pink undercooked chicken.
Overall just not the experience expected it to be. Unfortunate because it was our anniversary.
Absolutely delicious, one of the best dining experiences I’ve had. Would absolutely return next time we are in town.
Amazing experience incredible food! will be back very soon
Pros: The service was good and attentive, and appreciate the effort of the sommelier with wine selection.
Cons: The ambience was basically outdoor seating in tented area. Since it is the fall the temperature in dining area was chilly and they didn't turn on the heaters. The three $50+ entrees (Duck, Pork, Veal) all came out lukewarm and well done! We ordered Medium rare. Daughter returned the pork to be cooked again, as it was dry and tough. The duck was also tough to cut being so well done. Dessert was very mediocre too. This was my wife's birthday dinner.
Bottom line: For Wolfgang Puck's "flagship" restaurant, quite disappointing. Chinois on Main (Santa Monica) much better food, presuming not the sidewalk seating. Suffice to say we will not return to Spago.
Loud and touristy. Food is overpriced for what it is. The service is very good but the ambiance sucks and overall it's not worth it given the large number of better and cheaper options in LA
We had very high expectations given the Wolfgang Puck pedigree. The service was out of this world with very attentive and professional staff. The ambiance was up there and with glasses of champagne we were all set for what promised to be a wonderful experience. Then the food came… The famous smoked salmon pizza was served somewhere between warm and cold and I felt that it had way too much creme fraiche on it. I ordered the Prime NY steak medium rare and it was served close to well done and was rather dry which could make one doubt that it was Prime quality. My wife’s Jidori Chicken on the other hand was really good. The wine by the glass selection was excellent. Unfortunately a bit of a disappointment for us considering Spago’s reputation. Perhaps the big increase in seating volume that was added via the outside pavilion has stretched the kitchen’s capability to deliver consistently…?
