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!!!!

I love their museum-like decor, and almost all the customers were taking photos in their lovely desert and gift shop section. Food quality is good, price is fair (we had the dineLA menu comes with 15 courses) however everything has a tiny portion that makes you don’t feel like it’s a dinner, more like a sampler tasting. There was a course called California cone which is smaller than my finger. That’s the only dish gives me strong impression because of the portion lol. Our server was very friendly but the host who gave us check acted like we owed her a million.

We were there as part of the Dina L.A week. so we got the tasting menu for 100$ which is a really good price. The food was amazing and so was the service. The only thing that I didn't like was that we asked for a side of bread, and we got 6 pieces of Baguette without any butter or olive oil...
There was a wide selection of items on the menu and we've finished with a full belly.
So if your having the Dine L.A - it is a perfect place!
I once was there on a regular menu, and it was way too pricy - I felt like I'm paying 30$ for each bite - it wasn't worth it!

The Prix Fixe menu for Dine L.A. includes foie gras,caviar, wagyu beef and more than 10 courses, which I think is worth the price. The favor and service is good.

Astonishing place with different rooms with special styles each. The food is something related to the famous Spanish tapas, but not only. And even when tapas, they are creative. Really tasty with a wonderful presentation and pleasant service. The desert is offered in another room, especially dedicated to sweets, and they are also marvelous. What an experience!

We had been to The Bazaar before for the dinela tasting menu last year and this year it did not disappoint. The food was fun and original. We especially love the foi gras cotton candy and the cheese steak. We enjoyed most of the 14 courses. We thought the beef cheeks could have had a more pleasing sauce rather than the olive.
And once we asked the server and chef to slow down so we could relaxand enjoy the taste within our mouths they did.
Highly recommend

Tasty food, just a notch below bazar in south Beach, Miami. Came here to celebrate my gf’s birthday, and stayed for the dessert buffet :). I did the dine LA tasting menu, and it was just enough food to fill me up without bursting a button. Excellent value for $100 bucks. The sautéed shrimp on this menu was the highlight for me.

Came here to treat my family. All four of us agreed it wasn't worth the $100 menu.

Music was louder than expected; it sounded like the weird vogue music you hear at fashion shows in movies. It was almost loud enough to compete with conversation, which seemed kind of tacky and tasteless. Is it really the kind of music people like to listen to in these kinds of fancy restaurants?

Service was good for a busy night. Sometimes the wait in between courses was a bit much, but it was a Saturday night so it was understandable.

Food was not worth the price. I liked 5 out of 15 courses (including the dessert) for the Dine L.A. tasting menu. My sister liked even fewer courses. My parents liked slightly more. Not worth it. The "bazaar" (gift shop area) seems to fit the implication of the name-- a random assortment of items, none really worth buying in my opinion.

I learned that foie gras is disgustingly salty and gross. The meat in the ramen and the shrimp both had this weird vodka (alcoholic?) undertone to it that was bitter and slightly sweet and gross. Some of the flavors were definitely experimental, but not in a good way.

Valet parking is a pain, but we got lucky with free garage parking elsewhere. Unlike the rest of the neighborhood, I am not made of money and will never come here again.

We tried the DineLA fixed menu. The food was excellent - delicious, creative and unique. I had 3 rounds of their margarita which I requested to be spicy and it was amazing. The servers were all friendly and attentive. The only thing I didn't particularly like was the loud music. We would've requested for a quieter space but the people up front were not too friendly and accomodating.

BAD BUSINESS.

I was given an SBE gift card for Christmas, and wen to the website to see where I might use it. The Bazaar by Jose Andres was listed as one of their restaurants, so I made a reservation through Open Table and off we went.
After dinner I presented the gift card and was told they would not honor since they no longer are affiliated with SBE. When I told them I was confused since I found them on the SBE site, they said they were aware of the problem, as they've not been affiliated for years now, but SBE wont update the site. They continued to say they ran into many similar situations over the holidays with other people with gift cards. I recommended they tell their hostesses to ask diners before they're sat, so as to avoid the problem from continuing.
We ended going $350 out of pocket for a gift card that should have been honored. I understand it's SBE's fault for not updating the site, but The Bazaar has done nothing on its end to prevent what they admit has been an ongoing problem. BAD. BUSINESS.
The food isn't even that great. And paying $350 for tapas for 2 makes it even less palatable.

What a spectacular place. The restaurant is filled "bazaar" from the moment you walk in. Perfect name for this gastronomy type cuisine. Each bite of every item was filled with unique yet tasty flavors! Had a great time in both the main restaurant and in the patisserie for dessert.

The quality has changed a bit. I still enjoy the food for the memories, but I think the service is lacking. The food is not as good as it used to be and there are some items that are no longer on the menu that we used to like. Our service was not attentive as before.

FOOD WAS GOOD...STAFF WAS GOOD... BUT.... ALL FOUR OF US DID THE TASTING MENU BUT IT WAS NOT CLEAR THAT WE WOULD BE "SHARING " THE ITEMS WHICH SOME WERE VERY SMALL- EVEN THE WAITER AGREED AND TRIED TO PUSH FOR A LARGER PORTION FOR THE TABLE BUT THE CHEF REFUSED.

THE FOOD WAS GOOD BUT WE WALKED AWAY FEELING A LITTLE HUNGRY AND QUITE HONESTLY A BIT CHEATED AFTER PAYING $100 PP ON THE TASTING MANU THAT WAS SHARED. WE ASKED THE WAITER ABOUT IT AND HE EXPLAINED THAT THE MENU WAS PORTIONED FOR 4 OR MORE..CLEARLY NOT!

GREAT food as always. Four of us got the tasting menu and after we got home we saw four extra charges for food items that we did not order, but things that just came out. We thought they were part of the tasting.
The server needs to be VERY clear or ask if you want to order extra items. Not cool! And we were charged for an extra drink that was never ordered.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Bazaar. We went there to celebrate my daughters 18th and it was a fun and surprising experience from beginning to end, with magic mojitas (with and without alcohol) and a variety of dishes amazingly satisfying for our vegan/vegetarian/pescatarian/normal eater group. Can’t wait to go again!

The Bazaar remains a great destination for heady molecular gastronomy. Some dishes are more clever than they are tasty, but overall it's a great dining experience for those looking for something different. It is fairly expensive, and the wine list is especially punitive. Coupled with an LA-high $50 corkage, there's no escape. Service was great, choosing our dishes, and pacing them competently - even comping us nearly $100 in drinks and food. The room is elegant, with a separate dining area for desserts, which proved to be the low point of the meal. Consider uber/lyft, because the SLS will hit you up for a $17+ valet fee.
