One of the best dining experiences I have had in LA! From the incredibly accommodating hostess, to the most engaging and helpful waitress, to the absolutely OUTSTANDING food dishes....we were overwhelmed by every single aspect! Thank you for providing such an incredible evening, even in the midst of a pandemic. We will definitely be coming back soon!

One of our favorite spots. The music could have been a little more chill and a little less Drake In Your Face but otherwise always a pleasure.

I organized a 6 person dinner during Covid for my birthday. The service was absolutely amazing. Our guests shoe broke and they found us tape to fix it. They listened to the notes I left on here for teeny cute bday touches on the table and we overall had an amazing time. The food was good and the music plus setting made the overall ambience so fun. We were dancing on our way out. The whole experience was wonderful. Thank you for making my Covid birthday so special

The waitress forgot about us and we were seated at the very back corner. It was only when the check was involved then the waitress became attentive. It did not allow us to enjoy the night, and it felt like a dine-and-go experience. it was definitely not the best, spend your money elsewhere.

Been here a couple times, first time since Covid. Fantastic environment for outdoor dining. It's a HUGE space, they've even expanded in a way where it truly feels like an extension of the initial outdoor dining area instead of being on a street.

Food has gotten better since the last I'd been, but it didn't blow my mind like some restaurants do.

It's a fun easy place to get together with groups right now given current situation we're in.

This was a great dining experience. The woman at the front was very accommodating despite me being 20 min late for my reservation. This place was beautiful and the food was amazing!!! I went with a party of 4 we tried each others drinks and food and everything was flavorful and delicious. This spot is amazing considering its price point and lavish ambiance. This would be great for birthdays, anniversaries, date nights and events. I will be returning and the service was great! I rarely ever write reviews - but felt this spot was worth my feedback.

From beginning to end the staff was very attentive, COVID conscious, and just outstanding! The food was absolutely delicious, I wish I could have ordered all of the plates that passed by. Also, dessert was amazing and highly recommend the warm apple cinnamon pie. The ambience was fun with background music that allowed for good conversation without a sense of yelling in order to be heard. Honestly, I absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a wonderful evening and can’t wait to plan my next trip back.
