Second time there and again the food, ambience, and vibe were great! Our server thought she could remember everything without writing it down, but not so much. Overall, it was a great experience!

The food was great and the place is really nice. But I did not like the attitude of the 2 girls in front, one blonde and another one brunette. In a way they think they have too much power . It’s a main reason why I don’t consider coming back but other than that, everything was great.

We’ve been to the restaurant twice in two weeks, Once with our age group mid 60s, and once with our kids 30s. Everyone loved it. The restaurant is beautiful. The food is good especially the appetizers. The service has been great, and the receptionist are dolls. It’s really refreshing to go to a new hip and happening restaurant that does not act pretentious I would recommend Ysabel to sll my friends.

Food was really not good (salmon not fresh, risotto tasted like water). The manager and kitchen agreed and wanted offered not to pay. In the end a very bad fooding experience and poor standard on ingredients.

Impeccable service. The food was noteworthy and interesting. This particular evening there was a photo shoot going on around us for marketing purposes and it made the atmosphere distracting.

This was my first time at Ysable! Those who know me said I would love it, and they were right!
The romantic and cozy ambiance infused with the uplifting music created an unforgettable ambiance.
The food was the icing on the cake, everything we ordered surpassed my expectations.
Can’t wait to go back! I found my new favorite restaurant.

Pretty place but our food was not good at all. Steak over done and thrown on a plate with nothing else. Not even sliced. Just a hunk of beef which they over cooked. Scallops were overcooked and swimming in a pool of creme that was heavily seasoned with lemon grass and had a weird bunch of enoki mushrooms hiding beneath it which were tasteless. Did I mention the bill was over 400? For that amount of money the meal should have been spot on. Sorry.. But cheap cooks in the kitchen and no one experienced was watching. Will not go back.

Been here many times & love it, however, this time there was one issue. One entree came out cold & was sent back. Second time it came out it was just lukewarm. We were a little surprised that our check wasn't somehow adjusted to compensate for one member of our party having to wait for her dinner while everyone else was already eating. Since 3 out of 4 of us have been in the food service industry at various times in our lives, we were in agreement that something should've been offered--comped entree or free dessert, etc. Otherwise everything was very good as usual.

Great Ambiance, good food, excellent service, awesome drinks. We loved the Jane Doe cocktail made with Passionfruit infused vodka. We were a little disappointed that Lobster Ravioli was taken off the menu. They had crab ravioli instead but it wasn’t great. Brussell Sprouts, Tuna Tartar and Truffle Ricota were all good.

Absolutely amazing. The level of customer service is outstanding and the atmosphere is on another level. There is no other place in West Hollywood that will satisfy your quest for the perfect dinner and your quest for the most “instagramable” spot in the city.

Awesome setting and service at this spot in West Hollywood. Food was very good generally, the short rib hash was more of a stew, large pieces of meat and a broth at the bottom of the bowl. The portions are generous and the best thing we had was the spicy fried rice.
