    Food was amazing. Right from the start valet was very professional. Walking in they immediately gave me a stand for my purse which was very kind. The food presentation was great and we loved the steak. They also brought out a little cake for our anniversary. Definitely will and already have recommend to friends.

    My second time here tonight, this time they put us inside in one of those booth table, the music was already loud, can barely hear my friend sitting next to me then the music got even louder to the point I can not hear my friend talking sitting next to me, paid the bill and took some photos on our way out, and left. Outside music is not loud at all. Food is mediocre, service is slow, come here and pay for the ambiance thats it.

    I had made reservations three weeks ago because I wanted to make sure I get a good table since we were celebrating my mother’s birthday and publishing of her second book! I had called the day before to request a really good table. I also called again the day of the reservations to confirm the best table in the house will be waiting for us. I was assured both times that we have the best table. As we were arrived at the restaurant for 7 o’clock reservations we were seated in the back corner with a little small round table that sits two people. It was very disappointing 😡 I had approached the host requesting to change table she was very adamant that she didn’t have any other tables. Choices were either to stay there or she was giving us inside a table or another table on the other side. I noticed that there were two tables in the middle. I had asked her if she can put them together under the lighted tree and sit us there. She said no we don’t put tables together!!!! I was very disappointed and very angry. This had ruined my mood already! We wanted to order appetizers and drinks and an entrée! I’m not sure how they were planning on fitting all that on one tiny table and the fact that I had reservations in advance and we were celebrating it wasn’t just any other outing was not helping! I was hoping that they would be accommodating but unfortunately and sadly not!! Then my husband went to ask the front, if they had another table for us a slightly larger table where he ended up getting into an argument with I guess one of the managers. It got uncomfortable and the manager basically told him the table that we were eyeing to take it and calm down or leave. My daughter felt very scared and didn’t want to stay. Mind you it was a celebration for us! Considering the fact that we had reservations in advance, I expected better treatment than to be basically yelled at and put in the corner. I was shocked and embarrassed to be treated like this!

    Ysabel was possibly the best restaurant I have ever been to. The ambience is truly stunning, the food and cocktails are incredible, and the service very attentive, friendly and helpful. This an absolute must on your list of restaurants to try in LA!

    This was by far the worst dining experience I've ever had. The food was ok, average at best. The ambiance is stellar. But the real drawback here, was the service. The sever and then the manager attempted to pick up our check before we were ready to pay and leave, about 8 times no exaggeration. We were rushed, blatantly told that there’s a time limit and constantly monitored. What an uncomfortable and inhospitable experience. Im not sure who would want to dine somewhere, constantly feeling on edge or like you’re departure is being anticipated. It left such a bad taste in my mouth. (Pun intended). The manager, Matt, was the absolute most inhospitable “manager” I’ve ever encountered. I now understand, why Ysabel has disabled their review page on Yelp. Never returning again.

    Very nice ambience and atmosphere! Valet parking so you don’t have to worry about finding parking. The drinks and food were delicious. My friend ordered the mojito and I ordered a mocktail which was very good. We ordered the truffle fries, crispy sesame shrimp, salmon egg Benedict and spinach omelette which were delicious! The only thing that bothered us was there were multiple flies around us and having to swat them away was a nuisance. Our waitress bought us candles to help with keep them away which we greatly appreciated but they still continued to be bothersome. But other than that it was a pleasant experience and I would recommend!

    The hostesses were rude and dismissive. I shouldn’t have to ask 6 times in a row to get an answer on the ETA for when I would be seated. My reservation was at 8PM, I wasn’t seated until after 9PM.

    It’s a great place to take your friends and drink. Sharing appetizers is probably the best route with each other. It’s super spacious and just a great vibe. Drinks are their speciality for sure.

    Where do I begin? Everything on their menu tastes amazing! Here’s a few must haves: Rigatoni, corn, wagyu skewers, truffle fries, hibachi, potato purée and by steak. Is that almost the whole menu? Lol you just can’t go wrong with the food here! Our servers have always been super friendly and helpful.

    You enter by walking through a Frank Lloyd-Esque tunnel that opens up into multiple open spaces including a nice corner with steps where you can grab a drink and watch the crowd. Service was excellent, though at times we felt slightly rushed. We liked the appetizers more than the main course - next time we will plan to order a bunch of appetizers instead. The ambiance was great - cozy casual chic.

    I left the Los Angeles area in number of years ago, but I still try to return to this restaurant when I am in town. Overall, this is an excellent restaurant. The ambience, food, service and vibe remain excellent. While it can be pricey… It is not out of the normal range for restaurants of this type inLA.

    Intended to go for brunch. Music was so loud we couldn’t hear the server or anyone else speak. Also music was not so classy for the environment. More like a club vibe than a nice Sunday brunch. Ended up leaving without ever having ordered. Unfortunately disappointing - other time I’ve been was great, not sure what happened this time.
