vipOpenTable Diner (Los Angeles)
2.0  Dined a day ago

We were asked to sit outside on the patio...or we could ‘wait awhile’ for an inside seat, no thank you. So outside it was but needed to keep our coats on as the heaters were no match for the 45 degree evening. I really should have left at that point...

Took 20 minutes for a server to come to the table, another 20 to get my glass of wine. Food was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. Server never made it a point to let us know anything the days specials, got to find out about those AFTER we had ordered when she was telling another table about them.

Would have let all of this go had they not reported to Open Table that we were no-shows for our reservation. Um, no, you were so busy you just wanted to shove the Mom and her daughter outside and out of the way to make room for more profitable tables. We were there. Have the receipt to prove it.

Bottom line - the bar looks fun, but the restaurant is mediocre. They don’t handle busy nights well. We will not be back.

Dodi and Kevin run a great place. Our family (eight of us) celebrated our sister’s birthday. Great dinner ( that’s not including the clown!) and fun dancing after. Wonderful time and great food.

reservation was scheduled for 7:00 finally got seated at 7:35 the young lady was overwhelmed as she was doing her job on her own.....she did the best she could do ....very disappointed as our valentines dinner was great - think you need more staff as it is too busy for one person to deal with! also dinner was warmed over - not freshly made - think it was left under a warmer too long!

Second visit in one week - food was great and good value. Fun bar and energy. Table next to us was loud you can't pick your neighbors. Our waiter Tarik was good and responsive

We really enjoyed our dinner and service. The noise level is high and we had to wait 30+minutes for our table with reservation, but I guess the people before us were enjoying their time too. We actually saw a younger crowd mixed with us oldies. I forgot my eyeglasses at the table and they were waiting for me at the front door 40 minutes later. I will definitely return!

This past pair of visits (Valentine's Day and a date and dancing night), we had traveled across several states to get to The Nest. As always it was more than worth it! Dodi is a wonderful hostess, and Kevin's music keeps people on the dance floor. Despite having moved out of California, I make it a point to visit The Nest any time I'm in the area. I recommend it highly!

This was me and my fiance's first time. it was little noisy inside because of the live music (which we will be back for) so we sat on the patio and they had a gentlemen playing guiter. the food was amazing and our waitstress helped me decide on a drink. and they had heaters too.

As always the Nest’s food was awesome. We find the entertainment is always energetic and enjoyable. Dodi makes you feel like part of the Nest family. In the bar area you have the opportunity to be served by the hardest working waitress in the world, Rosalee. You could never go wrong by eating and being entertained at the Nest.
