Arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and still had to wait 30 minutes to be seated which was strange. The food was fantastic but the service lacked a bit overall.
Hoping this was not the usual for this place. My plate lacked flavor. The food definitely required seasoning.
I might give them another try but would need to have a GOOD reason to.
We ordered the prefix menu for $150/pp (4 people). One item was missed completely. Our entire menu of food was brought to us within 25 minutes, at times in groups of 3 items. There was no “experience” to the meal. It felt very rushed. Our dinner waiter was pretty good.
We were then moved to our dessert table with a different waiter. We asked for 2 mint teas. They brought one and then the other one came 20 minutes later after requesting it several times. Waiter was barely seen, we had to flag someone down several times I. Order to order and receive our check. We ordered several items off the menu. They were brought all at once, and two of our choices never showed up. We looked to tell the waiter, but couldn’t find anyone to help. Finally flagged down for a check and he had to go back and take it off our bill. The dessert experience took way longer than our meal but only because of the service and the grouping of items. The meal cost $1000 for 4 people but truly was only worth $150.
The food tasted pretty good...coffee steak was chewy and inedible. Rest of the food tasted good.
The whole experience was just...ehh!
Husbands birthday. We had a reservation but waited for a table for 30 mins. Sat down at bar finally and hurried from there to dining table.by hostess when table finally ready. Wrote it was my husbands birthday on reservations with open table but waiter completely unaware. Waiter wasn’t very attentive or interested in our group and we’ve been here several times. The food was very good but drinks were not very good.
Ok. Pretty good. Last time we ate there it seemed better.
Bazaar provided an exceptional culinary experience. I ate things I had never imagined before and enjoyed every dish. Unique atmosphere. Excellent service. Try anything on the menu. Take risks. Fun!
Service was not great at all. Would have been nicer to try a restaurant that is more personable and attentice to their clientele.
Great place, food was excellent, noise level was a little higher that expected however not a problem. recommended especially if you're staying at the SLS, why go out!
Love this restaurant. Especially love that they have a fantastic gluten free menu. We’ve been coming here for years, and always enjoy ourselves. Last night the restaurant sat us at a tiny round cafe table-it’s ridiculous to have a table that size in a tapas type restaurant as it’s more appropriate in a small coffee shop. Every time a new dish was delivered it was like the the game twister trying to figure out where they could place the dish on the table with zero surface space. I’m not going to lower my rating-but there is an easy fix for this and the restaurant needs to make it.
We had the Valentine's tasting menu for all four of us, everything was overall okay but several dishes came out cold even with a hot plate. Our last dish before moving onto dessert area was Philly Cheese steak took about half an hour and came out not the warmest either and the cheese wasn't even running. (My family has had this dish over 5 times at least and it was never like this. Dessert be side service was not relatively slow. Perhaps we have been here too many times or that Bazaar has lost its lustre in the food scene.
Simply we love this place! Never disappoints.
I really enjoy this restaurant. This was an amazing experience
Had the Valentines Day tasting menu. You would think that it would come out in some specific order which it did not, dishes came out randomly, and if you did not pay attention there is a good chance you may not receive one. For dessert they seem to cart you over to thier dessert area where they apparently seem to want to have you wait some more in Hope's you will get hungry and buy another dessert while waiting for the one you already should have on the way or waiting for you as you sit. Maybe at one time this place was more on point, not this time.
We stayed at the SLS for Valentine's Day so we decided to make a dinner reservation at the Bazaar.
Due to some pretty bad traffic, it took us about 90 minutes to arrive and we were running late for our reservation. We called the hostess and let them know and she was very kind and understanding regarding the traffic situation. When we arrived we were promptly sat. We got started with some drinks and that margarita with the "salt air" was amazing. The prix fixe menu was delicious. Given the smallish size of the courses we weren't sure we'd be full, but they definitely stage the menu well. The ending with the risotto and australian wagyu was perfect. They threw in a special philly cheese steak as well. During the course we also ordered the beef cheeks...while it sounded great, I think it had a bit too much black garlic which was overpowering.
All in all a great dinner. I'm sure we'll be back soon on date night.
Enjoyed a nice pre-Valentines dinner at The Bazaar. The lighting was a bit low for our photo taking (didn't want to use flash so not to distract other patrons). We ate a la carte and enjoyed all our choices!
Swanky little place that’s fun to go for date night or just dinner w the girls.
This restaurant is amazing! The food is incredible and very different.
I have been to Bazar many times , and the experience of eating and service used to be always impecable. We were celebrating a friend's birthday and I was very disappointed. We had the tasting menu and it was not worthed. The molecular gastronomy has gone away and we saw a repetition of dishes that were clearly prepared by someone that were clearly copying what was once a great recipe but not a chef . Plating was sloppy , ingredients were cheap and we missed the flavor that made the elevating experience a moment of happiness at the Bazar. The food were dropped at the table without a proper explanation and when asked about the dishes the waiters seemed to repeat something that they did not know about it. The bathroom was so used up , the faucets leaking and floor dirty and sticky , so definitely not going back there ! It was a great experience in the past , but lost all the exceptional character that it once had.
This was an amazing dinner! I took my dad here for his 63rd birthday, and it was a great choice. Each dish they brought out was exquisitely plated, and tasted wonderful. We easily ordered more than a dozen dishes, and not one of them disappointed. He proclaimed that dinner to be the best experience he has ever had dining. Thank you Bazaar for making such an incredible night filled with good memories happen. We will surely come back!
Absolutely amazing! Josh was the most attentive and delightful server.
We had their omakase menu, it’s $140 per person. You get to try different dishes at one time but the value is not worthy since you only get very tiny version of each dish. It will be more cost efficient if you order separately from their menu.
Food was interesting, creative and delicious. Service not so much. There were 4 of us and each couple ordered 5 dishes. One couple received all their food at once, while the other couple had to wait, and wait, and wait. There were no apologies from the waiter, only some lame excuses about the kitchen being busy. We were offered more wine which we did not want. We should have been offered at least, a free dessert, but no. That made for an unpleasant dining experience because two of us ate all our food - didn't want it to get cold - while the other two sat and waited, and then the reverse. Inexcusable that NO apologies or any kind of consideration was offered.
everything was great as usual will do it again. great ambiance and very expensive but you get what you pay for
Best dining experience EVER. And I’m a foodie and a cook. Each bite sent tingling sensations throughout my entire body, literally.
Great food, great service. The whole experience was excellent. My wife and I will definitely be back.
Had to sit at the community table for the first time. After being seated in the dining room several times, Not sure I would repeat.
We were placed in front of a column with an obstructed view. The seats were very uncomfortable. We had the DineLa menu. 1/3 of the plates were good, 1/3 ok, and 1/3 tasteless. Overall the menu is overpriced. There was a dirty knife at the foot of the table and only one menu for the whole table. You would expect a more classy and professional service for such an expensive restaurant. It was very casual. I would not recommend this restaurant.
Food is very bad
Food was insane
We went for Dine LA week. The pre fixe meal was wonderful and we highly enjoyed our meal. There were a few miscommunications with our server that made the experience less enjoyable but we would definitely return.
Loved this experience!
I didn't get all the food I ordered, but they charged on my bill :(
We had the best service from start to finish. The food was good. Loved the croquetas.
I reserved a table for 6 people during DineLA. When we were seated we were told that if we wanted a set menu, either the DineLa menu or the regular set menu, the entire table had to order the same thing. We protested that this is crazy because we have two people at the table who could not eat pork and one of them also doesn't eat beef. We asked if 4 of us could choose a set menu and 2 of us could order à la carte items. Our server said no. He offered to replace the items that our two guests could not eat with items they could eat. This ended up being a disaster. Most of the time they brought 4 items and never brought an alternative dish for the two. We had to ask almost every time for their food and it arrived at different times. The cadence of the dinner quickly disintegrated and it ended up being an awful evening that was ruined by a ridiculous requirement for meal that cost a fortune. We won't be back.
The wait was long even tho I had a reservation. The waiter who served us seemed like he was in a rush. The restaurant was noisy.
The dineLA menu was outstanding and so much food. All the staff members and our waiter were fantastic and attentive. This is a must place to go to on a special occasion the decor is fantastic and the food not only looks good but tastes amazing well done Jose you created an outstanding restaurant, experience and destination. Bravo 🙌🎉
Nice atmosphere, food was good but def overpriced. Serve over charged us on our drinks and recommended a glass of wine, we didnt ask the price assuming it was close to the cost of most on menu. We got the bill and it was triple the price of most. Partially our fault for not asking but just felt he was trying to upsell us the whole dinner.
Enjoyed the night but wouldn't go back. Their nitrogen cocktail was popular but I wouldn't recommend it ...underwhelming. it's the gimmick that is being sold. I cant recall any dish that stood out. Just an over all OK experience.
Simply put...The Bazaar by Jose Andres is the premiere destination for a taste of Spain in Los Angeles. A must to experience!!
We did the tasting menu and there was nothing we didn’t like.
The presentation was beautiful and the taste was above that
