The Bazaar by José Andrés Ratings and Reviews
Amazing date or small group experience. You start at the bar where they’re heavy on the foam and liquid nitrogen but all to successful extent, then are whisked over to their tapas section (private and communal tables), enjoy a la carte or tasting menu tapas featuring Spanish standards and New American twists, then a final landing on the other side of this delicious cavern in the patisserie for dessert. Also ok that side there are various displays of jewelry, artifacts etc.
We did 10 tapas, three cocktails, two desserts and coffee with a 20% tip (their service feels very Four Seasons) for $300. Spend it if you’ve got it, your date will be impressed.
I’ve been to 40+ countries and eaten at some of the best restaurants. This is my favorite restaurant in the whole world. When I lived in LA I’d here here a lot, now just when visiting. It’s truly a gastronomers paradise. Creative dishes, wonderful presentation. Trust me, it will be a wowing experience!
Not your everyday caprese
Cotton candy foie gras
Brussel sprout salad
We were a party of four. Three people decided they wanted the chef's tasting menu, but we were told we all had to get it because it was "designed for four." Then most of the dishes came out either undivided or with five portions. So one person ended up committing to 16 dishes vs the three she would have chosen on her own, at a cost of approximately $50 more than her dinner would have been a la carte, all because the restaurant doesn't want customers to share. If three people are paying $100 each, and a fourth person is also ordering separately (not sitting there with a glass of water and a fork poised over her companions' plates), why does the restaurant CARE if anybody shares?
We were then moved out to the lounge for dessert (three more dishes and mediocre coffee). The lounge seating is very uncomfortable; the ambient temperature was cold; and the bathroom looks like a morgue. Not what we are used to at these prices.
We had a good time together, but only because we always do - not due to the dining experience.
I am not sure if the VIP of open table mean anything at all. My table was small for 5 guests . It was not busy at all.
The service was VERY unorganized
My friends ordered the cocktails but never came
Have to track down the server to get wine
Food came before the wine
Terrible organization, very disappointed
We still tipped the server because we are just nice
Food was good , that’s why we wanted to try it out.
Overall , Seevice was questionable and VIP of open table might not mean anything to them.
Went to Bazaar for my 4 year anniversary with my wife. Loved the atmosphere, service, and food selections. The cocktails were top notch. Our server was super helpful and gave some wonderful recommendations for food. We found the dessert "set-up/service" to be quite fun. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a unique and great experience.
I reserved a table for 2 for a birthday dinner and was assigned a small round table in a dark corner. When i asked the host to change to a bigger table, she said we only have two people so we could not sit there. But i saw other 4 seat table that only had 2 persons. We waited a long time so we just accepted it and sat.
When we moved to the dining room. Again i was put in a small table in a dark corner. I asked the host (the same african american girl) if we could move to the sofa table (there was another couple sitting there so i assumed it was ok for 2 people to sit there). I was shocked when she said: “i dont know. If they clean the table then you can sit there!” Then proceeded to walk away. When my server came, I requested another table and she gladly do it for us right away.
Everything was great but i did not have any good picture or a good table. The host totally ruined my experience. Not to mention that that was my birthday.
I've been to 6 Jose Andres restaurants and I found this to be the most uninspired. The ambiance of the restaurant ruined it. The restaurant is basically in the hotel lobby and it feels as such. The restaurant does not feel separate from the lobby and there were too many working girls. The food was good, the ingredients amazing. The drinks were ok but not great. The wine was excellent. The dessert was completely uninspired and moving into another area of the lobby for dessert was ridiculous. He could and has done better.
We had an excellent time. Every time we come the service is spectacular. This time I had wanted a wine paired with a special dish I had never ordered and our server was able to suggest a wonderful wine by the glass without asking the sommelier. We also wanted Dessert in the tea room afterwards, something we did not specify till the middle of our meal and they were also very gracious in getting us setup.
I had the pleasure of having dinner at the SLS Bazaar yesterday with a couple of friends and I must say that our server Ali was spectacular. He went over the restaurant shared plate concept and even went over the must haves dishes. I must say that the restaurant is a mesh of weird/modern antiquity, and that in itself is pretty unique. The manager, Denny even passed by our table and offered us Taitinger Brut champagne, and gave us a personalized tour of the restaurant. The food is very creative and I highly suggest you start with the cotton candy foie gras and/or the philly sandwich. They were delicious! Spectacular service all around from all SLS Bazaar teammates! I will surely visit again. Make sure to ask for Ali as a server!
Food gets A+ but service gets a C- Our waitress didn’t seem too enthusiastic about being there. We were celebrating a birthday and our experience wasn’t made to feel special. I say that because I had expected some kind of fun gesture from what previous reviews. The staff needs to vamp up their customer service, which is not doing the food justice. With so many cool restaurants in Los Angeles service should be A+.
Disappointing! We arrived early for our dinner reservation to enjoy the live music and hand crafted cocktails on the terrace that they advertise on their website for every Thursday night. We were told that we had to reserve a table to listen to the music and there wasn’t one available. (There is no mention of this on their website) Although, it wasn’t crowded we were told that we couldn’t go outside. Alternatively, we sat at one of the tables by the bar inside with no servers in sight. Eventually, my husband had to get up and go find one. After a long wait for our cocktails we were sat for dinner still waiting for our drinks. Once we were sat in the dining room the service was much better! Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. The food was delicious but since this was a tapas restaurant the portions were extremely small! After dinner we were escorted to the pastry area for dessert which was also delicious. Overall I would not recommend this restaurant. We were a party of 5 with a $800 bill and we still left hungry and disappointed with the experience.
We went for the DineLA prix fixe menu. There were a few outstanding standouts but overall, was a lot of food for the price.
Service fell apart at the end. For dessert, they re-seat you in the “lobby” which is a little bizarre. Our waitress said it was because the pastries came out of a different kitchen. We were confused since our dinner came out from several different kitchens but we were not reseated every single course.
After getting our desserts, it seemed like the wait staff had completely forgotten about us. We had to flag someone about 30 min after finishing dessert for the check. We were not asked if we would like coffee, refills on water or anything else for that matter. Also, it was also much cooler where we were seated and I was freezing at the end.
Overall, very disappointed in the service and will most likely not be back.
Food delicious....Service NOT!
Terribly expensive for the amount of food on each plate. Most dishes were ONE "possibly" TWO bites. Avg cost for apps, $12.00-$18;00
I'm guessing when the tips are pooled, individual service lacks big time.
It also appeared there was very little coordination between the front desk hostess, the actual restaurant and the "desert" area.
Bottom line, GREAT taste, Poor execution.
(also $17.00 to park. next time i will Uber both ways, cheaper~)
Perfect birthday dinner for my fiance!! We enjoyed about 8 - 9 items and all were delicious!!! It also came out to less than I thought! About 150 with Wine included. We had the caviar cone, ox Tail steamed buns, dumplings, Philly cheese steak, scallops, beef cheeks, King crab steamed buns, eggplant, and a few others and everything was delicious!!!!
