Service was a little slow and a lot of Instagram photo snapping hipsters but otherwise it was a super cute place with a pretty good brunch. The regular coffee was meh and only 1 refill.

We enjoyed ourselves because we really wanted to just spend time with one another but the service was terrible. It took so much to get her to come to the table.

the service was decent, however, the food was not good at all. I ordered a salmon dish.
it did not have any salt. absolutely none.
first time in 20 years i asked for salt and needed to put a lot of salt to make the dish eatable.
i let my waitress know and I asked her to check with the chef if he forgot to put salt, but did not get any replies. very disappointed. no apologies , no alternatives, no refund.

The music was so loud that it was like a nightclub. So, this is not the place for a romantic dinner on a Friday night. Otherwise, everything was wonderful.

We had some sashimi to start which was amazing. The oxtail pasta was also delicious and a good portion size, but the butternut squash tortellini was disappointing. There were only 10 pieces of tortellini and a shallow broth, which was tasty but not filling and left me hungry. We’re not sure if this was the intention but we felt rushed out at the end. Overall, whilst the ambience was great and some of the food was amazing, it didn’t feel like we got good value for money based on the experience we had.

We were on our way to our hotel from the airport. We were looking for a decent restaurant and the kids were hungry. Open table, as usual came handy and we were pleasantly surprised as the restaurant exceeded all our expectations. Excellent food, cozy atmosphere, lovely staff. We met a waiter named David, who went out of the way to get some kids food for my boys. Appetizers and cocktails were amazing. We were so happy overall and valet parking made it even more convenient. Highly recommended.

Girls Xmas dinner . Everything was great except we kept telling manager and also the couple that sat next to us about the smoke flumes from the patio . They need to close the door because there’s people like us that are sensitive to smoke . Otherwise beautiful place and great food and drinks .

The food is a fusion of American, Italian and Asian. That might sound weird but not in LA. The best of all food cultures. From the Wagu skewers for appetizers to the light and flaky crust apple pie all courses were wonderful. The service was refined without being stuffy. Our waiter Jack D gave us perfect recommendation. We will definitely go back.

After a few false starts, finally made it to Ysabel for dinner...And may I say, it was worth the wait!!! We had a fantastic dinner out on the patio...Food was outstanding and we enjoyed a beautiful evening under the twinkle lights. Our server, Jack was a gem, as was every single person we encountered...All were super friendly and helpful. We will DEFINITELY be back!

I celebrated my birthday this past Saturday and was greatly disappointed by the service and food. The ambiance was exactly what I was looking for in a girl's night/birthday outing but it took about 20 minutes for someone to even ask us for our drink orders and we had to ask for our waitress every time we wanted to order.

The drinks were good. Food was very mediocre and the presentation of the food looked sloppy. I'd go back for drinks at the bar but dinner just wasn't worth it.

We were recommended this spot by my husband’s client for brunch, it was a lovely find! It’s tucked back from the street but almost the entire place is outdoor dining, which we love. It was really quiet for Brunch, but we could definitely tell it has a happening night life! Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable, the food was delicious, and the portions were really good for the price point! Would definitely recommend!
