What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.5

An laid-back English pub with a great beer list, and decent food.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

Great service as always, however I was disappointed by the scaled down menu (haven't been in a while I guess)... No oysters, no burrata, no house made pasta :-(

We love this neighborhood spot so much that we came here on Valentine’s Day. My husband is a huge fan of their fish and chips. They were very accommodating to our 3-year-old.

I've been a regular at the Pikey for almost a decade, which makes it hard to say that my last visit will be my last. For the first time I could say there cocktails weren't very good. Maybe they have a new mixologist? Also, the food portions were terrible. For $19, we got the fish and chips which came with one medium-sized filet, whereas before we got at least two filets. I also ordered their new burger which was about he size of a slider. I left feeling like I overpaid for everything.

Waiter’s gave attitude unnecessarily. On previous occasions the wait staff have been good hence why we came back. Tonight encountered two waiters who spoke about patrons within earshot of said patrons and gave poor customer service.

This is the second time we've gone to The Pikey for dinner and we've loved it. The food is great, British influenced but also with the addition of salads and seasonal fair, reasonably priced for what it is, very professional service.

For 6:30pm reservation there was no parking valet as advertised / noted in OpenTable listing with the restaurant being on a street with no parking until 7pm, a very small lot in back with no available spaces, next to a residential area that did not allow non-residential parking. While David the host who answered the phone was apologetic, I was left scrambling to find an alternate restaurant with parking especially considering my guest was an older frail woman where closer was better. Thus while I had been to The Pikey before some years ago and was looking forward to my second visit, I no longer desire to.

Brunch at The Pikey is one of the great things about living in Los Angeles. The English fare is comforting and familiar, but with just enough of a unique flair to keep it from being rote. Drinks are generously poured and reasonably priced, and every single member of the staff is welcoming, amusing and seriously efficient. Will be back, many many times.

Have gone to the Pikey a few times and it's been a reliable later night bar/restaurant in a city that tends to close early. The people who work there are incredibly nice, there's a homey British pub atmosphere, and the service is good. The food is a bit less satisfying...very greasy fish and chips made with snapper instead of the usual cod. There is a decent kale caesar and the soups are usually good. My worst experience of all was recently, on Christmas 2018. The vegetable curry was a thick flavorless paste. Fish and chips were greasy as usual. There were a few overpriced Christmas specials ($34 for a vegetable pot pie). It was so disappointing and such a blatant rip-off for the holiday, I'm not returning.

Since the Pikey is open on Christmas Day, we decided to check it out for an early dinner. Because we’re weird and obsessed with our dog, we ate outside on the patio with her (she’s gigantic and everyone was accommodating). Food was awesome- I had the fish and chips and it definitely was just as delicious as what I’ve had in the UK. My fiancé had the burger and it was also really yummy...it looked like it came on a challah roll so it was very slightly sweet and was a great contrast to the charcoal grilled burger. Drinks were also well made and strong. The inside looked really cozy and nice, so we’ll definitely be back without the dog!

We went to The Pikey before heading to the movies at The Arclight on Christmas Day...the place was busy with a great crowd. Wine and cocktails were top rate and the food was delicious...we had (1) short ribs with brussel sprouts, dressing and potatoes, (2) vegan mushroom pot pie and (3) Fish and Chips....
Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and fun...will definitely go back!

The restaurant is evenly divided into a brightly lit dining area and a dark and dimly lit bar area with perimeter seating around it. We sat at the bar section and enjoyed the warm and welcoming atmosphere. We shared both a hearty chopped salad, and a scrumptious vinegar chicken — both expertly prepared and highly recommended.

We had been to the The Pikey last year on Christmas Eve for a lovely British Christmas inspired meal and bubbly. It was magical and soooo delicious. It was like Christmas in London. We just assumed they were doing a special menu again this year because it was so divine and packed last year. But, it was just a regular night. So, yeah, it was disappointing. We ordered the steak and it was a little tough. Asparagus was perfect, though. We heard they have a new chef so the jury is still out. Service was exceptional, as always! And seasonal decorations festive just like 2017.

This is our second year having Thanksgiving dinner at the Pikey! Last year was so wonderful we had to come back!
David reserved a space for 8 of us, and the new grandbaby. We had the greatest time together and interacting with the staff. My wife is from Norwich UK and has mostly lost her accent living here since a teen. It comes back when she’s with her mom and when submersed into an environment where everyone encourages it. Its absolutely my favorite thing to hear her forget she’s lived here all these years and listen to her Norfolk Drawl come out. It’s not just a meal we enjoy at The Pikey, it’s the experience with all the people.

We can’t thank David enough for fitting us all in for this joyous occasion!

Thank you to everyone at The Pikey for another amazing Thanksgiving feast!

We went to The Pikey for a non traditional Thanksgiving and got just that. The decor is great and it makes you feel like your in a London pub. Our reservation upon arrival was hassle free and all of the employees are friendly. We will definitely go back again soon.

The manager was very cool and let us in a little before opening time on a very busy day. The cocktails were great, mixed so perfectly. The food was better than average and good value, was not blown away but we were both very satisfied. I’d very much recommend this place to anyone

I’ve been drinking at the Pikey, and eating at the bar, for over three years now and have always enjoyed the experience. A few days ago I booked a table for a friends birthday and tried the restaurant side for the first time. I’m sure this was an honest mistake and does not represent the service as a whole, but due to some mix up, after being seated for an hour, my food didn’t turn up and I had to leave. We were a table of four and two meals arrived, two didn’t. A shame, but I still recommend the Pikey and it’s food
