Service not very good. Forgot a side. We were advised if we ordered Chicken it would take longer so asked for other meals to come first. Chicken took 45 mins post other meals being served. Such a shame about the service as the chicken was the best I’d ever had.

Go to Wolfgang Pucks here @ LA Live often and it’s amazing. A bit pricey but the food is AMAZING and the staff is excellent and it’s a nice little spot on the LA Live walk

It was my first time at the restaurant and the food was great and the drinks were really good. It was my husbands birthday and we were going to the Microsoft Theater so it worked out perfect. The service was great and the staff was very friendly. I will surely return because there were other items on the menu I would love to try. I had a great view of LA Live and enjoyed people watching and even caught a glimpse of a celebrity or two.

Ate a light dinner here. Decided to sit outside because it was very noisy inside the building. Located in the lively LA Live area so lots of people to watch. There was a heater over our table so we were quite comfortable. We ordered salad and pizza. Both were fresh and very tasty. I brought the extra pizza back to the hotel room and it was even good cold the next morning :).
Overall I liked this restaurant and would return.

The location is conveniently located across from the Staple Center, and the food was amazing. Service could have been better, we had to constantly wave down a server to either pick up the plates or get a re-fill. It was a busy Wednesday night, but with everyone working, I felt it could’ve been better.

Was there with customers on Sunday night. Our server was very nice but think she had too many tables as she just couldn’t get back to us even for small things like extra fork or knife. We added one more guest and she helped us seat him but everything after that took too long.
Overall my guest and I enjoyed the food but it was a bit more expensive then I feel it was worth.
That said it’s in a good location so I’ll come back next time in the area.

Server was poor; offered soup they did not have. Had to ask for fresh ground pepper. Needed to ask for spoons. Grilled vegetables were left out of the salad. We used to have good experiences here, but sadly, no longer.

We were party of 4 dining before LA Kings game. Service was adequate, but took longer than expected for food to be served and to get check. Beer selection limited. Drinks a on pricey side, even for LA live area. Caesar salad was VERY bad. Non-green iceberg lettuce overloaded with dressing. A few anchovies thrown in to drown. Margherita pizza was decent. In summary, we won't be back, with other better options short walk away.

The food was great. For whatever reason the food was delayed, but the manager gave us a free glass of wine and halved the bill, which was very good of them. The waitress was very attentive and apologetic.

Shockingly bad, tasteless, overpriced and completely unworthy of WPs name. Fried chicken sliders were dry, the hummus (served with canned martini olives) was horrible (and $26) and the Tortilla Soup was so spicy my wife had to run to the bathroom.

I’m sending my full review to WP’s exec offices. Management should be ashamed.

I went here before and the experience was great. Unfortunately when I went there for dinner to celebrate my daughter’s birthday, well, that was another story.
We had a reservation, they were not prepared. Ok my reservation I requested patio seating, the hostess said “no one told me about it”; it took ONE HOUR for us to finally get a service. Of course by then we requested another sever. Food was average, nothing special like the last time we were there. I believe the manager came over to talk to us because we were upset about the situation, I said “I believe “ because no one has a name tag, so go figure.
Overall, horrible service, average food, terrible experience. We could have pick any other place to celebrate my daughter’s birthday and we choose this one. They mess up her 15th birthday. ☹️☹️

We were unsure at first as the inside was noisy and we wanted to "catch up" with each other. We sat on the patio/outside deck and it was perfect. The temperature was nice. We had a fantastic wait person who was very knowledgeable about the menu and was efficient/kind/nice.

I realize that LA Live is a mad house when there are multiple events near Staples. Review is for dinner prior to a Kings game on a Saturday night.

Food - food is a mixed bag here. The sandwiches & salads are pretty good / portion sizes fair for the prices charged. The pizza my daughter had was lukewarm, Pasta I had was a very small portion size for $23.

Service - horrific. Getting my iced tea refilled required an act of God.

Value - just know you are paying "convenience" pricing at any of the restaurants at LA Live. You can be at Staples in 2 minutes, but you pay and arm and a leg for food. At least this place is more affordable than Katsuya (which is a total rip-off).

Went for lunch. Waiter stopped by only 2x in 45 minutes. Had to leave for an appointment - no food! Tracked down a manager to tell them, and to ask for the bill for my iced tea. She apologized...not a good experience.

Unfortunately our server was not engaged in our table. We received our food before we got our drinks. The table next to us arrived after us and had an app drink and meal before we even ordered. One guest he forgot a drink. Then it came the wrong flavor. Waited more Another guest the cheese was left off the burger. Other than that, delicious food.

The food was good and reasonably priced. The location at L.A. Live across from the Staplws Center and the Microsoft Theatre is unbeatable. But don't expect a high gourmet experience because of the Puck name. The menu is interesting and appeals to lots of palettes. I took my 12-yr old daughter there. We were both happy.

I thoroughly enjoyed dining at Wolfgang Pucks. Service was swift and friendly . The food was flavourful . I enjoyed Calamari with pesto aolio followed by spaghetti all'amariactia. Calamari was a tad salty for my taste but the batter was light and fluffy . The spaghetti was a perfect al dente and the sauce and veggies delightful .

Next day my wife had lunch at Wolfgang Pucks and reported that the mushroom pizza was delicious .
