The Hart and the Hunter
Book your next event with us
I came back here for brunch after a 4 or 5 year hiatus, and I really enjoyed my waffles and fried chicken. It didn’t rock my world but this is a perfectly nice place to have a tasty and casual meal with a friend or two.
The ambience and service were great. The hot chicken sandwich was too spicy. Greens with bacon were delicious. The fingerling potatoes were too peppery—overpowering other flavors.
We had thanksgiving & it was lovely. There was some confusion about mashed potatoes & some disappointment when they didn’t have any. The serving sizes weren’t as huge as they made them sound but, overall, satisfaction was achieved.
Great brunch and service
Great food, friendly efficient service!
Liz, Thanks so much for the kind words, We look forward to having you back soon. Yours Truly, Jesse Taylor Restaurant Manager
Great brunch. Had to wait a bit past our original reservation time to get out on the side patio (which we had indicated outdoor seating on the reservation). That was the only bummer, but it wasn't too bad. This is a great spot to bring your dog and people watch too.
Thanks so much for your patience guys, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, Looking forward to having you back soon. Sincerely, Jesse Taylor Restaurant Manager
Didn’t realize how dead this restaurant was. The service was great considering we were the only ones at the restaurant. The food was not good. I ordered the hanger steak which had a bad aftertaste like it was spoiled. I didn’t complain but I didn’t eat it either. They also don’t serve liquor which after the awful dinner I would’ve liked.
Dear Customer, We apologize for your recent experience, and do want to let you know we have checked and inspect all of our food, so this is a strange occurrence, I do wish you would have let us know so we could’ve rectified the situation with you at the time of your visit. Please know that we’d love to have you back, for a complimentary meal. Sincerely, Jesse Taylor Restaurant Manager
Food was really good, had some of the best cornbread we've ever eaten!
Mushroom toast was amazing.
Please bring back the Johnny cakes. And make sure the servers bring place settings to the table before serving the drinks and starters.
Hi, we are happy to let you know we still have the Johnny cakes on the Dinner menu, and will be putting them on the Lunch/Breakfast menu in the next couple weeks(you can ask for them anytime now though). We also have table place settings on every table so you may have just caught us in between seatings, I hope to see you back for more killer Johnny cakes.
It was a slow night so having inattentive service was unsettling. The burger was great, but had to send the extremely over cooked breaded chicken sandwich back just to receive another that was just as tough- perhaps not great quality chicken? Ambiance is nice though, would still return to try other menu items.
We waited so long, no one come to service us,and too noisy
Went for brunch to catch up with some friends and we were extremely put off by the noise level. Everything else was good.
Great for brunch! Food was delish and nice service. Only con are the flies outside so it makes patio dining a bit frustrating. If management / owners can figure this out with the Orkin man, it would get 5 stars from me.
Great dining experience at The Hart and the Hunter. Well curated menu with interesting selections. Great starter salad, the BBQ and grits were fantastic, better then any I have been served in the South. The fingerling potatoes were dynamite, perfectly seasoned. Service was attentive and informative. No downside to the meal!
Good food and excellent service. Great place to go when you don't want to be in a large crowd of people in a restaurant.
Weho's best kept secret! Excellent food and service as well as a heart warming ambiance.
Delicious food and drinks, pretty quiet during dinner hours, but great service and really cute place. Definitely recommend getting lots of things to share, it’s all so good!
The Biscuits are to die for! My friend and I adored the Mushroom Toast. Good coffee, fresh oj and charming atmosphere.
Very cute farmhouse vibe :) our server was super sweet.
We came here for dinner during DineLA period. We had and liked almost everything on the DineLA menu except the fried okra was on the salty side. Fortunately I like it salty 😋
Great service, enjoyed the DineLA experience.
Went for the biscuits. They are good, but not what I was expecting. I did like the pimento cheese spread and the cinnamon butter. I feel both were well seasoned and provided a different experiences with the biscuit, however the jam was somewhat under spiced.
The bacon was thick, perhaps too thick. My eggs were slightly under seasoned. Coffee or juice both very tasty, the oj obviously fresh squeezed.
Very friendly staff.
Good breakfast. Must have the mushroom toast! Hart and the hunter is at the the Pali hotel lobby. We went on a Friday morning and it was not busy, good vibe and good service.
We have never sent all of our food back. The place was mostly dead, the service was awful, and we had to leave and make another reservation at a very expensive restaurant so that we could eat and celebrate a birthday. I would never recommend or go back there. Just absolutely awful.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Dine L.A. lunch here! Avocado toast was fantastic, smoked trout and eggs phenomonal! I've already recommended it to friends, and look forward to returning here! :)
Food was fresh. I just wished I would have requested my smoked trout be cooked well done.
Great food and service. Farm to table and quite a treat. My only con from visit were the many flies that interrupted outdoor dining. The restaurant was using a natural remedy to deter flies but it didn't help and the flies were annoying. Therefore, I suggest indoor dining unless you sit in the courtyard dining.
The service was slow for it not to be crowded. I had to cancel my bottomless mimosa because they weren't coming to refill it. The food was delicious though.
Food is great! I had a particular guest who needed a seat change due to the AC and they were very accommodating.
Burnt biscuits..... Hope quality isn't starting to decline, with Kris Tominaga no longer overseeing....
Came for lunch and there was no lunch menu. Only breakfast food on a Saturday.
Hi candaceD, Sorry to hear you didn't find our weekend brunch menu appealing. We are going to be adding a few more lunch-like items to our menus in the near future so we hope you come back and give us another shot. We also officially kicked off our Summer Cookout every Saturday 4pm-8pm on the patio if you want to come by for some classic bbq fare! thanks, Autumn Accarrino Director of Hospitality + Culture
Extremely accommodating staff and really eclectic vibe. Prime location as well!
The ambiance is okay but the quality of the food isn’t that special & the value of the food is too way expensive... it’s a no no! At least we’ve tried for the first time 👌
Second time we were there. Creative menu for brunch time. We took our grandson who graduated 8th grade. He enjoyed and it was a special occasion.
What a gem on Melrose ! I was pleasantly surprised because it was my first time here . I was meeting a good friend and hoping my choice for brunch at Hart and the Hunter was a hit . And ......, Drum roll 🥁🥁🥁 it was so much more . We both enjoyed the food and appreciated the ambiance !
The biscuits, the shrimp and grits, the fried chicken are all winners. We love to go with our dog and sit out on the patio. It's perfect for a pre-Melrose Trading Post brunch with your friends, canine or human.
Servers were nice but very slow. Food was ok not fantastic.
Delicious food in a cute and classic space with friendly service. Note that the indoor dining room can get a bit loud, particularly if you're in a large group, and that you get the brunch menu (no lunch option) on weekends.
