The lettuce in the salad was not well washed and had a grainy taste through out. My friend's selection was over spiced and was unable to eat it.

Smaller than we thought, but we went on a weekday at 10 and had the place almost to ourselves. Food was amazing, I’ll be dreaming about the biscuits for a while!

Our reservation was made by phone for Saturday at 9:45 PM and when we arrived we were told the kitchen was closing at 10:00 PM.
If someone had told us earlier that was the case, we would have opted to go somewhere else.
This is a great dining spot especially in the summer.
We were rushed, the food was not up to par with what we hoped for and we couldn't order desert.
Overall not a great dining experience

First time going to the trendy hotspot. We were walk-ins with out a reservation, so the wait was 30 mintues. I sat down, opened up OpenTable and made a reservation for 15 minutes earlier. Thank you.
We sat outside, the noise was pretty busy with large parties. Nice ambient music, service was great, but the bench seating was uncomfortable, and the seat / size ratio was off, maybe because of the slight slope? Food was refreshingly new in this city of bland. The chef has created a small but varied menu, with tasteful delights. I'll be back!

While visiting LA searched for highly rated, restaurants. The Hart and The Hunter was one of the first to come up. The atmosphere is casual, cozy and inviting. The servers were lovely, attentive and knowledgeable. A bit of a delay on two of our entrees which they apologized profusely for - giving us extra butter biscuits and a round of desserts at no charge as an additional apology.
The food is GREAT. Brussels Sprouts should not be missed and the Kale salad is fabulous. The butter biscuits are made to order and come out piping hot, delicate and flaky. They had just received their liquor license so the drink menu was focused on wine, beer and very interesting wine-based cocktails. Highly recommend!

Eggs Benedict and other breakfast items weregood. The standout was the service. Pleasant and attentive. Chicken cracklings are NOT chicken bites. They are seasoned, fried chicken skins. Not recommended, esp at the price, even though I enjoy fried chicken.

Menu selection was small because it was a brunch menu, I think, so the creamed corn grilled cheese sandwich wasn't available which was a bummer but we ordered the eggs Benedict and their Johnny Cake and it was delicious!!!!

It was a cute restaurant, but very noisy for a small space with not many people in the room. The food was pretty good, their avocado toast was awesome, so much avocado and nice flavors. The Johnny Cake came out quicker than expected which was good, but I didn't really like the pancake thing under the chicken, didn't like the flavors of that or the maple syrup. The portions were ok, I was still hungry though after my meal so not great value or portion. They didn't seat us til our whole party was there, and service was pretty slow at times. But overall I enjoyed it, good food and nice ambience.

I was so pleased with my experience! The food was delicious (I will be coming back for the vegan biscuits). The staff took great care of us. You can really tell when the whole team is working to together. Hart and Hunter provides the experience only available at the restaurant of a boutique hotel. I highly recommend this restaurant. It was intimate, fun and welcoming. A very special thank you to Lisa, Aiden and their staff who went above and beyond for our night. Thank you!

Yummy food at a reasonable price in a dimly lit, cozy ambience. Really enjoyed our dinner for a date night there. The servers were friendly and efficient. The biscuits, shrimp, dirty rice, crispy Brussels sprouts...

The Hart and the Hunter consistently exceeds expectations. Every dish they plate is the best version of whatever they’ve decided to cook up. No matter what you choose, always add a side of bacon.

Great spot, good food, good service. Had a birthday brunch and snagged an outdoor seat so the noise level was perfect for a mellow afternoon. Would definitely recommend the Benedict and sugar pie was a tasty finish to a lovely meal.

We were a party of 7. All of us enjoyed our food, service and ambience.
We went on New Year’s Day at 1pm for brunch. 4 of us ordered bottomless mimosas. After our second glass we were told they ran out of champagne. We felt they shouldn’t have offered us bottomless.
However, the manager did pay for the drinks we had and offered a nice (not bottomless) bottle of champagne. We would all definitely go back and give them another shot at brunch. The food was delish!

Unknown to me it was a fixed price dinner for New Years. I asked if there were other options and was told no. Yet two other tables around me were receiving items that weren’t part of the fixed price meal. I ordered the vegan meal and my date had the regular meal. We were both extremely disappointed. Me more so as the vegan meal was pathetic. Having been to this restaurant on a normal day I’ve enjoyed the food here but the fixed price meal was awful and I’m debating never going here again as a result.

Waited twenty min to be sat. Waited another 15 min for anyone to come to my table, let alone get water. When a server finally came, I was told there were no eggs — at brunch. And factually, Whole Foods was still open just a few blocks away. I really want to like this place. I hope this situation was an anomaly.

The butter biscuits are worth their weight in gold. Of course, I wish they were cheaper, but they practically melt in your mouth, so I'll order them regardless. Amazing. Kayla was a great server. Sitting outside was nice, since it was a beautiful day, and we had the table furthest away from Melrose, so it wasn't terribly noisy. I can't wait to go back for more butter biscuits.
