This is my Tip: Go online before and look at the menu for better deals. Had Crispy sweetbread for $14.99 and added almond vinaigrette for $8. More for your $. Otherwise the food is overpriced and they serve small portions, they almost didn't give us our bread.

This place has delicious and new concepts I've never tried before. The duck was very well prepared and who could resist the Ox Tail Frites. This is a must have for a foodie looking to taste the americana cuisine in rare form.

Terrible service. Accepted no substutions for someone who is very allergic to dairy. Rude waiters. Rude help. Told they were busy and would stay busy whether or not we stayed to dine. Very poopoo better-than-you. Don't support ridiculous places like this. They suck. Would have given 0 stars if possible. I don't support places that hate their customers. I flip the bird at this place every time I drive by and I tell my plethora of friends in the TV and film industry how terrible they are. Have heard so many similar stories. Foodie heaven I'm sure but real down-to-earth eaters hell. Eff Animal!

Located in a nondescript venue on Fairfax, Animal's concept and interior is typical of a trendy L.A. restaurant. Although we were early for our 8:30p reservation, we were seated promptly at 8p and had plenty of time to peruse the menu as well as gawk at Zach Galfinakis' table in the middle of the restaurant. My favorite dish of the night came early; the bone marrow was soft and succulent and tasted absolutely scrumptious spread on the accompanying toast. We even ordered more toast so we could slowly savor the dish. The pig ear appetizer received good reviews, and while the sunny side up egg was cooked perfectly, the pig ears tasted overwhelmingly of lime. The consensus was that the next time we order pig ears, it would be at a Chinese restaurant. The fried quail and mashed potatoes were great, but even though it tasted just like chicken, it was a much smaller dish than fried chicken would have been :( . The flat-iron-steak was nothing extraordinary and the parmesan fondue was a little overpowering. Last but not least, the bite of the foie gras loco moco I had was delightful, and the birthday girl thoroughly enjoyed her dish! Overall, Animal has some interesting dishes, but I'm not tempted to return anytime soon.

Worst food and service ever. I spotted a rodent dart towards the kitchen. When I notified a staff member, he rudely told me "you know, you don't have to eat here if you dot like it". Avoid at all cost.
