The food was great.the pancakes are amazing. I had the breakfast plate also taste great.the only down side is the sitting .Some of the table s are quite small and since they are community tables you kind end up sitting pretty close to someone you don't know.i usually don't ming as long as there is space but the chairs are only few inches appart.the couples next to us didn't seems to likes having us next to them they weren't friendly...

Thank you Cooking Channel, you've managed to ruin my "figure," once again. Let's, at least, hope I fill out in all the right places. All right, down to business! A lot of the food here is Asian-fusion, yet everything has it's own unique twist. Roy Choi really knows how to make interesting combinations, so get ready for something different. Bottom-line about this place is, the more weird or freaky it looks, the more amazing it's likely to taste. If this is your first time at this establishment, you'll want to try the most popular items. Which is what I did. They go as follows: 1.) Fukikake Kettle Corn: Being a popcorn lover, I have high standards for kettle corn, and this was a little out there for my tastes. I'm really more a sweet popcorn lover, and this was more on the semi-sweet, semi-savory side. I think the slight turn off was the "fishy" taste it has from the seaweed. Other than that, though, it was sufficiently infused with all sorts of Asian-inspired seasonings & spices which give it a nice kick. 2.) Cracklin' Beer Can Chicken: I'm not sure where the "beer" part came in, but this chicken was pretty damn amazing. It's one of the few times I would suggest eating the skin, as it is the best part of this dish. Perfectly fried, crackly, succulent, juicy, & flavorful. The only downside to it was the fat content of the chicken. Yes, it adds to the flavor, but I'm not a fan of slimy chicken, and the first piece was little else. Fortunately, we get two pieces, and the second piece actually had a lot of tender, edible flesh to it. Nasty as that sounds. All-in-all, definitely worth a try. There's also a side dish of Korean radish, century egg (egg dipped in brine), and red & green sauces that comes with it. Some people may think the egg looks nasty because of it's brown color, but it's actually very good; savory & slightly "meatier" than a hard boiled egg. 3.) Whatever booze you're into, they'll most likely have it here. Ask for some suggestions as to what would pair nicely with what you're eating. 4.) Finally, for dessert! Everything they have there sounds amazing, but what really caught my eye were the Pound Cake Churros. It's truly a unique twist on a favorite Mexican classic. This restaurant pushes the boundary on a lot of classics, but it goes to show that thinking outside the box can make for some very worthwhile foodie experiences. Oh, and one last thing: Be sure to invest in some wet wipes, and bring them with you because this is some messy eating.

Yes, it's a hipster hang out. Yes, your waiter may be wearing all denim and a waxed moustache. Yes, it was an IHOP. But A Frame is great. Cocktail list is top notch, with decent beer selection and a few wines. Food is great, too, with all you can eat pancakes in different varieties, house made pickles, and a great mix of vegetable dishes, snacks, and entrees. Menu is designed for sharing, so bring a cadre. Parking in the lot just west of the building is free after 6pm, and not usually that crowded.

Great, creative food! A-Frame has delicious, twisted Asian food. Of special note: the wings. Some the best I've ever had. They're fall-off the bone tender and the sauce is delicious. There can be a bit of a wait, but that's just an excuse to try some of their yummy cocktails. If your party is big enough (or you're thirsty enough) get the punch bowl. It's served in an awesome porcelain bowl, with a ladle and cups to serve you and your friends as much as you can drink.

This was definitely one of our worst dining experiences ever. This restaurant is supposedly Korean-Mexican fusion (but the kimchee is pureed and there were no Mexican sides for starters). It is definitely overrated and so over priced that it is unforgivable. First, there is nothing fusion about their food, and it is definitely not Korean in any way (i.e., no rice, no sides, no lettuce, no green onions, etc) ...or American (one piece of bread for 6 people?). Sorry Roy Choi! Everything we had was too salty (our faces wrinkled to get over it), the music was loud (not conducive to talking), and the dining experience was more like a beer party in a dorm room (plastic camping plates? really?). Second, it was overpriced only what would be expected at a gourmet place: $16 for three small street tacos that actually tasted worse than actual street tacos (try Venice street vendors near La Cienga for better tacos). Finally, if we expected to go out on a date night or a girls night out, maybe it would be more appropriate to serve this type of food...but we went for dinner with the family--and tried to support our Korean brother. Unfortunately, we will not do this again and we urge you all to be more honest in reviewing restaurants in the future (i.e., 93% stated that they were "happy" with this place).

The staff here is so nice. They have an excellent drink list and the food is very solid. Things are aggressively flavored, so be prepared if something says it's sweet or spicy. I love the salads, and the ribs are killer.
