Wonderful neighborhood find. The crap pasta was exceptional as well as the brocolini. GREAT ambience. Good date place.
Friendly service and good to watch ch a game. Staff tries hard, menu limited
We had a 5:00 pm reservation on Saturday night, arrived a half hour late after calling them to let them know we would late. They had one other customer at the bar having wine. She departed and we had the restaurant to ourselves. The server was attentive and helpful. Each of us had a glass of wine. We shared a small plate, a salad, and an entre, each was tastefully cooked and presented. The portions were not large but big enough to satisfy. I am clueless as to why we were the only ones there.
Great neighborhood gem! Soft comfy atmosphere, delicious food, reasonable prices, and super friendly owners. Eat here!
Great spot. Excellent wine list and food consistently good every time. Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed the food, wine and service at Wilde. I did find the wine by the glass prices to be somewhat expensive. I guess that's what's to be expected in a high rent area like 3rd and La Brea.
Wilde has a delightful and friendly staff. They are very knowledgeable and accommodating. Also they have a great wine selection at reasonable prices. We love their burger. It is uncomplicated just the way I like it...really good wholesome ingredients served with really tender on the inside and crunchy outside french fries that compliment the meal. They also have a really nice cheese selection that we got as an appetizer. It's a lovely neighborhood restaurant that has a really nice ambiance and is also kid friendly. It is easy to get to and park even with the construction on Wilshire. We have been there several times and their food and service has been consistent.
Wilde was FANTASTIC!!! We had such a romantic dinner with great wine in a beautiful setting. 5 stars!
Love the atmosphere!!! Food and wine fabulous. I live in the miracle area and I suggest all my neighbors take a walk over to La Brea for a treat!!!
First rate food and wine selections, yet approachable and affordable. Impeccable service and great French brasserie vibe. Highly recommended.
We had great food, great wine, attentive service. A pleasure to dine in.
Looking for a place to stop on the way to the Bowl or Music Center, I came across this place based on a BBE discount (now expired) for Citi Card holders. They have a great happy hour plus their menu and wine list are first class.
The Fattoush salad was fantastic as were the pan roasted cauliflower and Brussel sprouts.Salt and pepper lightly fried squid and the Moule Mariniere (Mussels and fries) made my day!
The wine list is fairly priced and is more convenient at times than BYO. I like a Sauvignon Blanc but the wine list has enough categories to keep you reading.
Street parking after 7 pm is best, but I used my DP on a residential permit street.
It's worth a visit and more.
Wilde was the perfect place to spend the early afternoon catching up with family over drinks and great food. All our cravings were met, and desert was perfect! Wine selection was healthy and sangria delicious. We'll be coming back in about two weeks. Our favorite family get together spot. Not too casual, chic enough to feel like this mama got out for the evening.
Food was great with lots of sharing plate options, vegetarian options and even gluten free ( this is La !) I can eat everything but the server was great at accommodating my friends allergies.
Wine list was nicely priced and the staff gave us some great recommendations and didn't try to steer us to the more expensive bottles. It has a casual, chill New Yorky/ bistro feel that was a welcome change from more hectic, fast paced restaurants but may not be for everyone .
Four of us enjoyed this restaurant, the food, wine and service and look forward to returning. The interior dining area is intimate and a party was just finishing which made it quite loud. The hostess graciously set us up outside. Arancini for appetizers were crisp & tasty, Sunday Fried Chicken & Fries crisp on the outside, tender inside and well-seasoned. Penne Siciliane was good and served al dente. Roast chicken with farro was super as well. The service was attentive yet low profile and overall the restaurant warm vibe and welcoming ambiance.
Stale bread, average burger, good fries and good turkey meatballs.
There aren't enough amazing things to say about this place. From the lovely greeting you receive upon entering, the warm and fuzzy feeling you get from the sexy lighting and music. The food was nothing short of amazing! Meatballs are a must! Let's not forget how incredible the steak is! Take exceptional care of and checked on numerous times by none other than the amazing husband and wife owners! We just loved Lorna, her hubby, and the amazing staff!
Interesting menu and wine list. The room is very attractive. We were there very early so there was only one other table occupied so t was very quiet. Not sure what the noise level would be if it were crowded ii
Much smaller than I imagine from the limited pictures available which makes it cozy and depending on the tables occupied you could be sharing conversation with one's neighbors. Interesting and limited menu could make for some interesting choices.
Not the first time I have been to Wilde, but a first for my friend who I brought. They have a great selection of wines by the glass and our server was so helpful in recommending appropriate options to suit our needs. I'm not a Pinot Noir drinker normally but she gave us a taste of something (didn't tell us what it was) and it was divine! A full bodied, smooth delicious pinot noir - I was sold. We had to have it. I enjoyed their special ahi tuna dish and we shared few bites, loved the rice balls and meatballs..apparently any food in ball shape here is brilliant! My friend had the Spanish rice dish, recommended by our server, which was really excellent. The service was friendly and engaged, food was great. I wish more people new about this gem of a spot! In the words of Arnie - I'll be back
We had the steak which was divine, and the mussels which were packed with flavour. We had a wine flight each, with tasting glasses recommended by by our server - they all hit the mark and was a lovely way to sample a range of tastes. Overall fantastic value, great staff, cool vibe - can't wait to come back <3
Pleasant enough space. Reminiscent of a space one might find in Barcelona, Spain. It was pretty empty at 8pm on a Friday night which is always a bit worrying. Not that many wines by the glass for a wine bar and my wine was a bit warm. Nice Rioja though. The crab croquettes were tasty. I felt the charcuterie and cheese plate was lack luster. Bit skimpy on the meats and the cheddar and manchego were mediocre, also served a Gouda which was a puzzling choice. There were two cornichons on the board, two, really?! The membrillo or honey that was on the board, was really only enough for one. The bread was shockingly bad. It felt day old. I noticed when the owners sat down for their mixed board....it seemed overflowing with charcuterie. Not a good feeling. Also the waiters explanation for biodynamic wine was hysterical. Nice guy so don't want to get him in trouble...perhaps a little training when it comes to explaining the agricultural and handling process of the grape. On the plus side, they played Prince most of the night :)
We had a reunion of sorts here with eight friends and chose WILDE for the location. We ended up having a very pleasant evening. The food was very good. Duck Confit was a hit as was the pasta with crab. The Squid Salad was delicious. Arancini was good and everyone seemed to enjoy their dishes. The wait staff was very accommodating and attentive. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
A friend suggested this place for dinner, and I'm so happy he did. I love discovering quaint restaurants tucked away in LA that quickly become my go-to favorite spots. This is easily one of those places. The service was friendly, ambiance was relaxing, and the food amazing! Although I was tempted to try the fried chicken, which I hear is yummy and one of those dishes not on the menu that only regulars would know to order, I ended up ordering an assortment of small dishes: brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and shrimp. So yummy, but my eyes and stomach are set on that fried chicken next time...
No fuss or fanfare. Simply genuine Franco comfort food through and through
My first time at Wilde but once inside, saw it used to be 320 Wine which had really good food in addition to wine. Unfortunately we were only snacking with wine flights tonight; can't comment on the kitchen. The restaurant stocks good cheese and deli selections for their cheese board and charcuterie. Interesting that it was highlighting women winemakers for Women's History Month. Attentive server. All around pleasant experience and will likely return to try dinner selections.
I've now come to Wilde four times and absolutely adore it. This spot is mellifluous (look it up, it's a good word, and reflects this lovely place.)
I don't normally write reviews, but in this case I had to.. for two reasons:
1. To pass on that if you don't go here, you're simply missing out, and that's the honest truth...
2. I noticed one or two petulant nasty reviews, which have zero base for writing such verbal hogwash. (The internet is a cold, dark place, where any w**ker can write anything, about anyone or any place). LA is full of lovely people, but it's also full of bitter, irritable people that write bad things, and I'd rather see such a genuine gem of a restaurant succeed, so I decided to speak up.
And now back to point 1..
1. If you don't go for Sunday night fried chicken, you're an.. well, let's just say there's something wrong with you! Okay, aside from the fried chicken, a the other dishes I tried are Swordfish Involtini, which was sublime, the Pei Mussels and the Burger (yes.. the burger) was pretty superb.
Bravo... Thanks Wilde! I'll be back.. funnily enough, probably tonight. ;-)
Amazing food and personable service. The husband (chef) & wife (everything else!) owners are a great team and provide excellent wine paring suggestions. On Valentine's they not only offered a special pre-fixe menu but you could also order from their regular menu. Wilde's cuisine is fresh, imaginative, beautifully presented, delicious and their fries are "to die for"! It's within walking distance from our home so we've been numerous times and it never disappoints.
This quaint little gem was a great find.
They had AMAZING FOOD, yummy wine selection and attentive service
Wilde has a nice atmosphere for someone who doesn't like a loud, packed restaurant (me!). But it was pretty quiet in there for a Saturday night, which also lends to a feeling like it's not doing so well. The food was only okay, and very pricey given that fact. I make much better Brussels sprouts! The server was super professional and lovely and we still had a nice new adventure, in spite of being underwhelmed. But we won't make a point to go back or recommend it to anyone.
