My Wife and I enjoy spending significant anniversaries at Tierra Sur.
From the appetizers to the main course to the desert!- unmatched Kosher dining. Kudos to the Chef and his staff and the hospitable and courteous service. The General Manager, Andre, even spent time with us and explained the amazing 9 generations of wine makers who now have 80% of the Kosher wine distribution in the World. Thank you to all!

The food was unique and interesting. The appetizer (Duck in pasta) was very enjoyable. The brisket was not as good (way too fatty and dry).

The biggest problem was the service. The wait staff basically forgot about me and let me sit at the table for over 20 minutes without checking on me or to inquire about dessert which was part of the fixed price. I had to walk to the front to flag down another server.

The ambiance is great and hopefully will return to try again.

The winery is always delicious! However, this trip was disappointing as they did not update the website to show the very limited dinner menu (replaced by the usual lunch menu) and as such, we drove a total of 3 hours for less than the experience we were hoping for. Additionally, we asked for bread when we started the meal and multiple times throughout the meal but only got it after our main courses were served. Our main waiter was excellent but one of the serving staff assisting us was not as professional. I've been to the winery multiple times and will be back as it is an amazing experience. I'm sad to say this trip wasn't up to par.

Ambiance was not what I expected for the $$$$ spent. Service was slow. Music playing was way too energetic for the restaurant (Led Zeppelin, 70-80's rock in a fancy kosher restaurant??). Food was excellent though, if that's all you are looking for.

My daughter received her medium rare hamburger TWICE so rare it was inedible and served when we were all through with our meal. When asked to cook it properly the THIRD time so she could take it “to go”, the undercooked second burger was packed up. Fried chicken was dry. Desserts were dry. Only thing good was the wine. Never again.

Wonderful restaurant, great service and nice ambiance. We sat outdoors and the weather was perfect. The only issue we had was receiving our appetizers before the table bread and our cocktails we had ordered. Otherwise, the food was delicious and abundant and we all enjoyed our meals.

Whether for a special occasion, or simply to have a great dinner (or lunch) you just cannot beat Tierra Sur!! The service is top notch- the Floor Manager couldn't have been nicer - and every part of the experience was top notch. This is a Michelin star quality restaurant in food, service and atmosphere and not since the days of L'Orangerie in the mid-90's Los Angeles has a restaurant been this great for this long and this consistent. Hats off to Chef Gabe, as his menu is incredible - and you would NEVER know this was a Kosher Restaurant if you weren't told so. We had the Veal Appetizer, the Heirloom Tomatoes, the Beef Cheek/Tongue Terrine and the Fava Bean Ravioli; mains were Salmon and (the to-die-for) Short Ribs; desserts were Peach Cobbler, Tres Leches Cake and Walnut-Chocolate Banana Bread, and the 3 of us are STILL arguing a day later about the best course vs the best dish- because they were ALL so incredible!!!!! We will be back soon, and cannot recommend this place highly enough!!! Thank you to the entire staff- keep up the great work!

Food was very good, service was terrible, I also did not understand my bill, once I looked at it on line I see a service charge of 20% than on top of that another 20% charge for a tip, that is an added 40%+ to very inflated dinner price.

Best Kosher Restuarant in the country by far. Food was a great mix of flavors and design all paired with perfect wines that were recommended by the staff. Staff was excellent and watching them make the food in th open kitchen was an added bonus. If your in LA it’s a must visit.

As I have had pastrami at every major deli on both coasts, I was really skeptical that Tierra Sur's pastrami sandwich would be up to my high expectations. Now while it was definitely not the quantity of pastrami you will get at a deli, the flavor was very good and the condiments were amazing. A fantastic combination that I will need to get again soon.

The $79 fixed price is too expensive for one appetizer, one entree, and one dessert. The dessert (peach cobbler) was not good. The salmon was fine, but nothing special. The cauliflower appetizer was good. Excellent service. Nice ambiance.

My wife and I went on a Monday night and it was not at all crowded. The staff was very pleasant and went out of there way to please. I ordered the short ribs and they were excellent. My wife's steak was also quite tasty. I am familiar with quite a number of Herzog wines but unfortunately we did not find a new wine during the tastings that thrilled us. Oh well. All said it was a very filling and pleasant evening.
