Fun place, not as crowded as my prior visit. The temp was a bit too cool for my family. Nice they validate for the garage next door but still about $4.50

The Glendon Bar & Kitchen has really food and drinks for anyone. The flatbread appetizers were very good and served to us quickly. The happy Hour pricing did not hurt. Had a Jane Fonda Cocktail that was refreshing and tasty. The Crab Pasta dish was light and flavorful. Overall a fine place with moderate pricing and very good fare. Service is top notch.

Poor service, long waits to make and receive orders. They were courtesy and smiles given. No accommodation whatsoever and tried charge a gratuity for people that never showed up. I wouldn't recommend it to no one. This was my second time there and poor service and rudeness both times.

Food ok - house burger tasty, salmon sandwich kinda dry. Sweet potato fries wonderful! My main issue - too noisy. It was much more a bar than an eatery.

Great place to meet up with friends or to enjoy a romantic evening. I shared the wings, beef sliders, Brussels sprouts and a pizza and all of them were fantastic!

I have season tickets to the Geffen and this is a great apres theatre spot. The restaurant is lively and the servers are very friendly and accommodating. They have a really good Happy Hour. Great flatbreads and love the crab louie salad!

Maybe the Glendon was having a bad might (Staff no show or whatever.) As usual, the food was excellently prepared and excellently presented. As for the rest...it was dreadful. The room was jam packed, noisy, and our high table near the bars was closely packed with its neighbors. On three occasions, wait staff bumped into me as they were walking behind. In an unpleasant turn of events, we waited on our waitress rather than she waiting on us. She was inattentive and the promised water and food did not arrive anywhere near the promised time. We had to seek out another waiter to get our bill. Although we arrived right on time, reception staff did not check us into Open Table. If this was other than a bad night, this is a restaurant to avoid.

I have dined at The Glendon Bar & Kitchen several times before and I must say this time it was horrendous. Even when the manager (professionally wearing a Reagan/Bush 84" trucker cap) came over to apologize for the horrendous service (waited 20 minutes before asking for someone to help us, no one seemed to know which tables belong to whom, again waited another 5 min AFTER our food arrived for flatware/napkins to be brought to the table and then had to ask 3 people for our check) to which said manager promised to "take care of" us by comp a round of drinks unfortunately he could not be found once the bill arrived and no, nothing was comped and we were FAR from "being taken care of..."

Our group had a fun time here for Happy Hour before a show at the Geffen Playhouse. Lots of great options at good prices, excellent for sharing. We were forgotten a few times by our server and literally chased someone down to pay our bill, but that didn't detract from a pleasant evening.

The parking was suggested at the Palazzo Plaza, not aware of the extra cost ($17.50 w/ validation), and no alternatives were provided. Also, parking was limited on the disabled parking was in the back of the lot which made it difficult for wheel chair loading and unloading.

I had my birthday dinner here and there was a mix-up in my reservation. I was irritated at first but very understanding as I have worked in food before and know sometimes situations occur that are hard to deal with. The staff was very apologetic and extremely nice towards me and my friends. I come here often so I was not disappointed. Cannot wait to go back!

This is a great little gem in the middle of Westwood. Delicious happy hour menu and a great place to go before or after theater. The menu is creative and always delicious and the wine menu is great. It's very comfy and the service is always fantastic. We come here again and again!

First time at this restaurant & we were pleasantly surprised. Food was good, and good value. Restaurant was full, so service was a tad slow at first, but once they got going, all was good.

The decor in this place is bleak - definitely reflects its college town vibe. The food was flavorful and well cooked - the pasta with cream sauce was very tasty. The Happy Hour menu has good pricing on food and drinks, and there are some interesting signature cocktails to try. Note that if you order the salmon, that is exactly what you get: a plain hunk of grilled salmon on a bare plate - no garnish or anything, so be sure to order one of the a la carte items if you want a starch or vegetable with it. Also, note that there is validated parking in the garage which you enter adjacent to the restaurant.

Loved the service and food selection, great for vegeterians as well. Not too kid friendly but looks like a fun Friday night spot, lots of young people since it's located right by UCLA.
