Great diversity with menu choices, the flavors on each dish are excellent. The staff is extremely attentive, but not obtrusive, and will help with suggestions in pairIng a wine or drink to enhance the flavors of the dish. The atmosphere and ambiance of the dining room feels comfortable, it’s easy to have a quiet conversation and it’s not hard to hear dining companions. The decor is soothing, with clean lines, and the lighting is just right to read menus, but not overwhelming. The Bellwether is an excellent restaurant with a great menu and has a terrific staff.
We come to the Bellwether regularly but after Friday night I got a terrible headache and all I had to drink was soda water and lime. I am not sure if maybe they use MSG.
Three of us had a lovely dinner, cocktails and too many delicious shared plates. For quality excellent, as was service, didn't rush us. Not too loud for conversation. Bonus, they actually have a parking lot.
Delicious food and cocktails. Go with a group so you can enjoy more of the tapas style/shareable dishes. Dessert menu is pretty limited but the bread pudding was scrumptious.
Good food, good vibe, great service. Will be going back.
Ordered 6 or 7 dishes and had them family style between 4 of us. Every dish was great so we had to order a couple of extras to account for the greedy people (me). Would definitely go again if only for the Korean short ribs.
The fries and bread pudding are to die for! Service is always excellent. My go to spot in the area.
We love Bellwether. Absolute favorite neighborhood restaurant! .
Always amazing food at this place! Service is excellent! It feels warm, friendly and not a single bad dish at all! Fantastic cocktails too exclamation
Took my teenage goddaughter to Brunch and had a wonderful experience. I ordered an English Breakfast- I don’t eat eggs, so asked them to be left off, but it was no loss. The portion of English Bacon, beans, tomato and a large Banger with toast was so plentiful I took a lot of it home. My goddaughter ordered Avocado Toast and was presented with a thick Brioche smothered in a generous portion of fresh smashed avocado. Like me, she’s not an egg person, so left it off. We shared an order of French Fries that were epic. Thick, British/Poutine style, crisp on the outside, soft on the inside. I also decided to go extra British and had a yummy Pimm’s Cup.
The place is great for a leisurely Sunday Brunch. Busy, but not annoyingly crowded. The staff was professional, fantastic and tended to everything beautifully. I plan to return for dinner with my husband and also for drinks some evening with friends. What a terrific neighborhood find!
Brunch was good
Value for money is excellent. The atmosphere is relaxed, the service is very good, and the food was even better than expected. We had the octopus, pasta with meat, beef tartar, Fish tartar, and the raw scallops, Not to forget the dessert. Even my mocktail was very good. We will come back for sure.
Great place for a Friday night cocktail and dinner. One of our favorites!!
What a great place! The concept is just awesome. I've been here a few times, so there are some things i have to have, but i can always find something new to try, without having to forego my favorites.
The fries were good. The service was very inattentive and not very cheerful. The eggs were dry. I was disappointed.
Never fails to serve good food and staff’s always nice and accommodating!
The truffle pasta special was fabulous as was tempura cauliflower and bread pudding
Restaurant in this price range and quality should serve cappuccino not just ordinary coffee,
The food was unbelievable. Every dish felt like a symphony of flavors. The octopus is the best I have ever had. Wait staff was fabulous and on point. I can not recommend it enough.
Our complements to the Chef. We came in for Valentine's Day and had the Turbot. Outstanding!
Family dinner is always great when possible but The Bellwether or should I say Ted and Ann-Marie, made this special Valentine dinner with the family a night to remember. Everything from service, drinks, appetizer, main course, and finally dessert was well prepared, delicious and visually stunning. Thanks Bellwether and staff for a memorable Valentine 2020.
Bellwether is a great brunch spot with a bright energetic feel. Couples and families will all feel at home. The menu is curated and the fries are sensational. Perfect Sunday comfort food. The cocktail list includes a pretty great mimosa selection too. Definitely recommend
Fun and delicious shareables. Great service. staff really cares about your needs an is attentive.
Awesome as always. Bread and butter!!!!
Service was great. The place nice. Not enough vegetarian options and although we were led to believe that the portions are "family" size and shareable they are pretty small. What happened to the old days when bread and butter were free??? $ 5 for 2 slices of bread cut in the middle seems a bit steep. In general the prices are very high for what you get. My daughter had a complete different experience when she went for Brunch. It could be that the dinner menu isn't the best. Definitely disappointing.
Excellent Food, Love the small plates, wanted to try everything!
Our waiter was engaging and helped with our selections.
Ted is one of the best chefs in the city! Runs a great operation and I’m grateful to have a restaurant of this caliber in the Valley!
The food was weary good, as usual. However I did not appreciate the attitude of the host & hostess at the front of the restaurant.
Not sure if I want to spend money there again .... lots of other choices in Studio City.
Delicious small plates with a wide variety of choices. Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly but not at all pushy. Brussels sprouts and tempura cauliflower with a great dipping sauce were big hits. Ribs were yummy.
Delicious Food, outstanding Service, great experience.
The menu changes But the food is consistently good. Sometimes it’s excellent depending on the dish. We have never been disappointed in anything we’ve ordered.
Great deal for Restaurant Week - 3 plates per person for $39. I went with a friend, and the six dishes we ended up with were both excellent and filling. We're planning to go back for the regular service at some point.
I wish the large screen TV’s and the bar area were more in keeping with the rest of the place.
Service was good although server never followed up to see if we wanted more drinks and then it took a while to be served the second round.
Food was delicious
Sat in the patio with our basset beagle very comfortable with the outdoor heaters. We ordered our dinner from the Dine LA menu & were pleasantly surprised that all of the choices came from the regular menu.
Most restaurants don’t do this they generally give you a fixed menu which may or may not include regular menu items.
We will come back.
Nice restaurant in local area. Smaller plates were really enjoyable, with varied menu. I liked the open kitchen area and the seating at the bar was good. Would go again! Heard brunch is very good.
Food was good but too salty on meatballs and short rib pasta
The food was phenomenal! Great service! Lively atmosphere but not too loud!
Interesting eclectic menu designed primarily for sharing. Food expertly prepared and every dish was excellent. Would recommend to anyone.
Dine LA menu is a great deal and a nice way to try the menu. Our server was great, very personable and gave excellent recommendations.
I used to love the Bellwether. Not sure if the owner changed or if it was just a bad day. Staff were un interested in whether or not we were happy. Food came out cold. Had to pay for a side salad instead of a substitution. Which for some reason was allowed last time. Won’t be going back anytime soon.
Went for brunch. Food took longer then normal to come out. Our friend had ordered semi scrambled eggs (not overcooked, but also not runny) and crispy bacon. When the eggs finally came out, they were alittle under cooked, so she asked for them to be cooked alittle while longer. Bacon was not brought out, so she had to ask about it. When the bacon and eggs finally came out, the bacon was not made crispy, so they were sent back. Overall, it took over 30 minutes to receive scrambled eggs and crispy bacon. By the end of our meal, our server, Armean, was not very friendly and seemed like our friend was a bother to him. If this SIMPLE meal was prepared as it was originally ordered, then we would have prepared a better review because the Smoked Salmon Toast and Nashville Hot Chicken Sando was amazing.
