Overall, I felt like Waterloo & City was very hit and miss. Soup (special): Creamy grilled artichoke soup served over a poached egg and crostini. Perfectly flavored and surprisingly light. Chicken Liver Mousse: This came with bread and sweet potato jam. It was underwhelming, but not bad. Smoked Salmon with cheese: I'm a fan of smoked salmon so this was right up my alley. Plus it came with a fried egg and tartar sauce, so everything mixed together was delish. The complimentary bread with herb butter is SO good that I could have eaten the entire loaf. How is it so soft and well-seasoned? I don't know what they're doing, but they're doing it right! Mushroom pizza: I could hardly taste the truffle oil, and felt like it was a bland pizza overall. The crust was good, but I've eaten my fair share of truffle mushroom pizza and this really fell flat. Truffle fries: these are steak cut fries, which I'm not the hugest fan of, but it was really the lack of seasoning that got to me. Hardly any truffle or salt even. Just a few fries on top had truffle and cheese, but the others were bland. This plate was left almost uneaten. Now finally onto mains: Pot Pie (special): This was really great - it had a dash of what tasted like curry, and was the best balance of crispy and soft. It didn't have a ridiculous amount of breading either, which was good. Very well seasoned and delicious. Salmon: I love smoked salmon, but think grilled salmon is just okay. Just like this dish. Overall fine, although I felt like it needed more seasoning. I did enjoy the risotto though - it wasn't too heavy. Seabass: this was the most disappointing dish of all. So disappointing, in fact, that we sent it back to the kitchen. Absolutely no seasonings besides a very distinctly fishy flavor. Seabass is usually a milder white fish, but the table consensus was that this one was just not good. Although I did like the ambiance and the friendly, prompt service, the menu yielded mixed results. While there were a few standouts like the pot pie and soup, it is ultimately not enough to encourage my return.

Last time my foodie friend suggested a restaurant, it became my new favorite love (aka the Tasting Kitchen) so when she suggested Waterloo & City in Culver City, I was excited to try this hip British gastropub. All the side dishes/appetizers we tried were delicious. The smoked salmon terrine layered with potatoes and a fried egg atop had a nice smoky flavor and was not as mushy as regular pate, which I tend to avoid. My friend and I fought over the last bits and pieces of the crunchy brussel sprouts and crispy bacon pieces. I never understood why brussel sprouts get picked on as the vegetable that children hate, b/c all the versions I've tried are delicious, and Waterloo & City was no exception. The gnocchi had a nice chewy consistency, but the beef ragu didn't taste that special. I suppose the gnocchi was only a disappointment b/c the other dishes we tasted that night were superb. We ordered the bourbon donuts to share, and I found them too sweet for my taste. I would probably try a different dessert and pasta on my next visit, but overall, I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Waterloo & City. I've even held my birthday here and multiple fun happy hours, and it's still one of my favorite places to hang out. I love my friends for introducing me to new places!

Waterloo & City reminds me of the years I spent in London. Unabashedly meat-happy, this British gastropub is raucous and fun, an amazing place to go with friends who don’t mind sharing their food. Go with your game face on; the house made terrines and pates made from game meats like rabbit and wild boar are outstanding. Just don’t miss the light-as-air chicken liver mousse. They offer pared-down happy hour (5pm-7pm) and late night (10pm-midnight) menus featuring some of my favorite quick and satisfying dishes like fish and chips with homemade tartar sauce and smoked salmon terrine with a fried egg and gribiche.

The drinks were amazing. Tried the dark & stormy and the westside. Apps were also tasty - cheese board, tar tar and chicken liver mouse. Yuuuummm

This is probably my girlfriend's favorite happy hour place in L.A. The happy hour food options are extensive and reasonably priced. Definitely get the smoked salmon terrine even if it's not on the happy hour menu, and the Indian butter chicken pizza. The truffle fries are also thick cut and amazing. I've been to London before, and I can't help but think that Waterloo & City does a better version of classic British dishes than abroad. Definitely visit, and take me with you.

This place offers the best happy hour in LA! I live in Long Beach so I'm not always up for driving all the way up to West LA/Culver City to join get-togethers with my friends. But I'm there every time they mention Waterloo! First, they offer HH every day...you can't beat that! Also, they have a ridiculous amount of choices on the menu. I've never seen such huge menu selection for HH in any other gastropub-type restaurants. Some of my favorites were the salmon terrine and the cheese plate.

One of the best in LA. The owner is a great guy who always makes us feel at home. Order the one of the charcuterie plates and wine and enjoy the best breads in LA, along with a tasty selection of cheeses, pâté, prosciutto, etc. Try the green chorizo pizza, or doughnuts for dessert.
