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.
Nice and fancy place for a drink or finner. Service was not too good. Well....waiter did HIS best and was outstanding, BUT owner of this restaurant should get more people at work. The few people at work had way too much to do. Therefore they couldn’t keep the service as good as I guess they would like to...
I’ve been to Ysabel many times and the service and food today was horrible! The server Ally rolled her eyes at us when we requested salt on our margarita and the risotto was bland. Highly disappointed.
Booked for a joint birthday + father's day brunch with the whole family. Everything about Ysabel was great EXCEPT that they called me at 11am to let me know that for my 2:30pm reservation, they were closing the kitchen at 2:45 and needed every food order in by then. We had family driving in from out of town who had to pick their selections based on menu pictures-- not cool. 11am was not enough of a heads up to accommodate that change. They should not allow for 2:30pm reservations if they close their kitchen at 2:45. Aside from this we had a great waiter and the food and ambience was great. But this initial hiccup was kind of an issue to have to deal with on my birthday and my dad's father's day brunch.
Beautiful ambiance, great drinks & food, good service!
Good food. Nice ambiance. Great for people watching. The only complaint I would have is that the server doesn’t check up as often as I would like. But overall good experience
Atmosphere is great. Beautiful place. Drinks were amazing. Would recommend for drinks and perhaps light appetizers. Not a full dinner.
Great food and atmosphere. Servers are a bit slow.
Had a res and only waited 10 or so minutes to be seated. Got a drink at the bar in the meantime, which was killer. Our table was great and food was good. The atmosphere is what makes this place special. Definitely a see and be seen vibe. Read a ton of bad reviews so was hesitant to try - definitely pleasantly surprised. Will return!
Wonderful vibe, great service, amazing drinks!!
The ambiance was very inviting and the outdoor vibe added even more of a surprise.
They made a mistake on our food. My date received her steak the time I was done with mine. Waitress did not check on us while we were eating. I was wanting a refill on my drink but was unable to locate my waitress. All this took place on a Monday evening (which didn't seem to be a busy night).
Perfect and beautiful, food and drink was amazing ,
Great experience, beautiful restaurant with great delicious food. Would definitely come again! Be weary if the service though... it gets busy so it’s more of a slow dining experience
Delicious food, great service, and above all a beautiful location. We went here for our anniversary dinner and it was lovely and romantic. The food was pretty good — not sure if it was better than lower-priced places I’ve been to, but the overall experience was worth it (at least for a once-a-year thing). The cocktails are great!
Birthday drinks here , felt magical
Wonderful staff amazing food
Great food, great service and great ambiance
Great service! My best friend loved her birthday dinner
We had six of the different small plates ALL were incredible. Go
The space is beautiful, the food is excellent, but the service on my most recent visit was deeply disappointing, both by the waiter and the busboys. A celebration dinner started well, but by the end I just wanted to get out as soon as possible; alas, my waiter could not be found to take my credit card. I don't know if it was an off night or the restaurant just has their staff spread too thin, but the food and ambiance cannot make up for bad service, and it left me very disappointed.
The vibe and the atmosphere is great. Ysabel is a very impressive place to take a date. The tuna tartar is delicious and the steaks are amazing. Loved this place. Will definitely go back again.
Love everything about Ysabel! Food, drinks, service was all perfect and incredible.
Super cute place! Went there for brunch food and service was great!
Such a beautiful venue, and an amazing dining experience!
Over cooked my med rare 68$ filet mignon. Was med well. The server was amazing and had a new steak for me in 5 minutes. Service great. Most dishes were great or very good.
Very cool space with a lively ambiance. I was impressed there were two vegan options, but honestly I didn’t love the flavor of mine. The servers and staff are super respectful and kind, but the restroom was quite messy and ran out of paper towels. I really like going here, but a few updates will make it perfect :)
Despite reservations was kept waiting by a dismissive and unwelcoming woman at the front desk, then after seated and our order taken, one of our courses was forgotten, then served cold, with the second glass of wine brought out after we had finished. In fairness, the maitre d’ comped the cold entree and the second glass of wine. In all, we definitely felt as though we were not their target audience. Disappointing because the room is so lovely.
SMOKERS? REALLY? WTF? Kept smelling smoke, thought it was from people walking by from the street. NOPE, they have a smoking section where people are dining! BOO. Someone came over to try and move us to another table, AFTER we were finished with our meal. They offered drinks, we don’t drink. They offered dessert, but we would’ve still had to endure the cigarette smoke. They should’ve instantly comped our meals, but not even an offer. Could’ve been, should’ve been, a great experience; our service was really good, food really good, but then the cigarette smoke. Yeah, no thanks. Probably won’t be returning to this spot, sadly.
Always amazing food and AMASS martinis.
They had the music so loud we could barely have a conversation and I still haven’t gotten my voice back
Amazing food and ambiance.
I love this place. The never let me down. Food, drinks and ambiance is amazing!
We love the ambiance at Ysabl and even though the brunch is more expensive than it should be we've come back a few times. This was the second time we had to wait for our food (45min), about 30min in the waitress came up with a terrible excuse why it was running late and gave us a plate of pastries that had obviously been sitting (the butter on the plate was half melted). It was obvious she forgot to put the order in, had she been honest and given us something we actually wanted instead of a bunch of refined sugar from another table that didn't want it, we would not have batted an eye.
The worse customer service I’ve ever experienced. Table was late and when we finally got our table they sat us at 4 person table and we were 5. When we asked for a bigger table the manager said “ we don’t need your business you can leave or take this table”.
Beautiful space with really friendly staff! Really great service. Can't wait to go back
We had a great experience and yes I went to my reservation. I can send a copy of the bill.
The food was great. The service wasn’t there.
Thank you Ysabel! Wonderful evening and ambiance.
Bad service. No one ever came to greet us . Had to keep askin for the waitress. Ended up ordering drinks from the bar . Horrible service
Ysabel is such a treasure. The ambiance is so inviting, with the trees and the lights and the al fresco feel. Everything we ordered was delicious! The specialty drinks, the artichoke tortellini, the sashimi and the steak were exactly what we hoped for! Our waitress was so friendly and professional. We will definitely return and recommend Ysabel to friends.
Brilliant. Love this place. Great food and atmosphere
