The restaurant radiates a romantic and luxurious ambiance, from the marble staircase overlooking the patio below, the intimate private dining tent, to the inviting fireplace lounge. Revel in the open air courtyard and let the night elevate as you dine alfresco style and relax in this truly stunning Los Angeles oasis.
The menu offers bold yet bright flavor profiles with an emphasis on organic produce and the highest quality ingredients. The beautiful outdoor setting at Ysabel is conducive to the philosophy behind the food. Serving delicious, eclectic cuisine while enjoying the amazing weather and sustainable ingredients that southern California has to offer.
I don’t know why I had a reservation because I didn’t sit until 45 mins after it was booked. Don’t come hungry.
Got a great table by the fireplace. Food was very good. Would have liked more veggies with out entrees. Great atmosphere.
Amazing food and delightful outdoor setting. Standouts included the tuna tartare and the homemade ziti.
Sophisticated but yet casual. Amazing food and friendly and very attentive staff 👌🏼
A very nice surprice
The restaurant was quiet for a Saturday evening. I love the decor and setting for this place. We seated very quickly. Our waiter was very friendly and took the time to explain the menu and options. After we ordered, our food was brought quickly. We took less than an hour to complete dinner!
We ordered appetizers, the flatbread and olive tapenade was warm and delicious, meatballs were tasty. We shared the salmon dish which had a little twist with some curry.
I love this place , for ambiance , food , service , beautiful place
All around it was a great experience! Great staff, Great food, and Great ambience
We had the best server but had bad experience with other server
We enjoyed the superior Huevos rancheros with two homemade salsas, and lots of fresh ripe avocado.
This was set in a pretty garden among olive trees.
Really good music too.
Amazing. Thank you!
We came in to celebrate my partners 40th birthday and we had an amazing time. The service, food, and ambience were wonderful. You even took the time to hand write and wax seal a note from the staff wishing him a Happy Birthday. What an amazing personal touch! This was our third time to Ysabel and definitely not the last. We always recommend you to friends and family and can’t wait to come back. Thank you again and keep up the outstanding work!
Great food, ambiance
Service was great. The food was not good. It’s changed in the last couple of years. Anyone reading this will understand after they go.
What a beautiful spot for a nice dinner and drink with friends. I love love coming here.. Those trees covered with fairy lights are too pretty. Wonderful ambiance!
Service was slow and waiter paid no attention to us.
Dinner was great, nice atmosphere but a little noisy since seated next to bar. Staff attentive, but could have check in on us a little more and have more knowledge regarding wine. Overall great experience will be back.
Great atmosphere.. the layout is classy, romantic and somehow intimate even though it’s pretty big with an open roof and tree growing in the middle of the dining room. The service has always been excellent when we’ve gone here. I haven’t even mentioned the food- SO good. Inventive, delicious and beautiful. We usually order a few of the smaller dishes and go family style and then share one of their steaks. Valet parking available but if you plan on having some of their house cocktails (I suggest the Olivia) I would just Uber. Great place for a date or with a group of friends, not a place for kids though. Always such a lovely experience here.
Just great. Get the patio seating outside at about 6.30. Good street parking. The shrimp and the chicken were among the best I’ve ever had. Anywhere.
My experience was amazing! The vibe of the restaurant was energetic, yet relaxing. Kitchen staff and service staff was amazing. I will be back!
Our waitress was absuktely awesome! Super trendy place great photo ops everyone was so awesome and friendly! The food is large proportioned and meant to be shared! Great place!
Our waitress was excellent. Great food and music!!
We were instantly wow'd at the ambiance, the food was unreal ... thought about it for days. And our server was so delightful.
Amazing food. Great place and atmosphere.
Charming, hip and trendy with a delicious unique menu. Great drinks too!
Ysabel is a beautiful restaurant featuring a variety of dining spaces (i.e., indoor or outdoor, table top or bar, etc.) and modern architecture/decor. It makes a striking first impression. The ingredients used in the kitchen and bar are fresh, organic and locally-sourced. The menu has a decent offering of different wines and many fun, creative dishes and cocktails. Unfortunately, our service was incredibly bad, rending the entire experience completely unenjoyable.
Our server promptly offered us water but 20 minutes later never delivered it. We waved over another server for water. After ordering, our drinks and starters came out promptly and were really tasty. However, our mains arrived a long time later. A couple dishes were cold but supposed to be hot. And another dish was not what we ordered. We couldn't get our server's attention to make a correction so we just ate it. We wanted to order a second round of drinks and more dishes but, again, our server was nowhere to be found. We couldn't help feeling like we were being ignored; though, I'm sure, that was just due to our frustration. When our server finally did come to our table we asked for the check. Then, we immediately went somewhere else.
Though it's possible the restaurant had an "off" night or was understaffed the evening we dined there, I'm not interested in giving it a second chance. It delivered style but not substance. And there's no shortage of perfectly great alternatives. I will not recommend dining at Ysabel to friends nor family. And I do not plan to return.
Always consistent! Half chicken is incredible, sauce not to be missed. Brussel sprouts are always delicious.
Worth going just for the ambiance. Service was friendly and food was tasty!! Perfect date night spot.
my fave place in Los Angeles... food is outstanding ... Ambience is great... cocktails are a must
It’s like they’re doing you a favor to serve you. Been there a number of times but never again.
Wonderful and very friendly service (from the Hostess to our server. We had brunch and the portions were huge huge! Fabulous cocktails too! Would highly recommend and I hope to return to experience dinner on my next visit.
Amazing food, amazing vibe! Can’t wait to go back!
Wonderful. Service was friendly and food was excellent
The food was well prepared. Our waitress gave good service and was nice. The music was good r&b but the volume got louder and louder as the night progressed as though it was a club atmosphere.
Cool spot, it's half outdoors with beautiful trees and greenery throughout the restaurant. Two bars - if you just want a drink, you can walk in and buy, then sit either near the fireplace or on the outdoor steps in a lounge setting. Food was pretty good too, we liked the rigatoni, brussel sprouts, and wagyu skewers. Drinks were well-balanced. Servers were attentive and friendly. Found it reasonably priced, especially for the ambiance and location.
Beautiful, clean restaurant, amazing food and wonderful service
The tomahawk steak wasn’t worth it... kind of disappointed
we loved the ambiance. food was good. the service was truly terrible. 2 of our drinks arrived timely, then one, and the other didn't come for about a half hour. my first course arrived after everyone else had finished theirs. my husband's main course never came at all. and was added to the bill (although we caught it, and asked for it to be removed)
I had a great time with my guests and our waiter was great. I give him A
Excellent food service and atmosphere. Highly recommend.
