This used to be one of my favorite places in LA. That's not the case anymore. I was so bummed out the last time I came in. Sunday morning, not to crowded. I just wanted a quick bite and a beer, so I order my beer (my lady ordered the sparkling rose), an order of biscuits (which this place is known for) and an avocado toast. My beer comes out as does the rose, which we can see is flat, no bubbles. We ask and are told that that's the regular rose and unfortunately they're out of the sparkling. Oh well, champagne then please. The toast is dropped and it's good. Then after waiting about 15 minutes (with no check ins from the staff for refills or updates) our biscuits are dropped. I notice my girlfriend making a face at her biscuit that she's cut in half and it's raw in the middle. Cold, gooey and raw. I slice mine in half...also raw. Check the third one, it's raw too. We flag our waitress down inform her and she's mortified. After telling her to take them back she informs us that everything is on the house because "that really, really sucks. I'm so sorry." That was nice of them, but it was such a bummer.

Small restaurant in the Pali Hotel with great lighting and beautiful light blue brick like wall tiles. The food was great. We shared the dirty rice, shrimp and grits, cast iron chicken and their famous biscuits. We probably over did it for just two people but managed to finish it all. The dessert of the night was funnel cake with a scoop of banana toasted marshmallow ice cream. Not bad at all. Drink list is minimal and affordable but no specialty cocktails here. So we opted for champagne. We only took off a star bc there were only two girls on the floor and the check took awhile to come. Our waitress however, was very sweet. We will return for more southern comfort food, especially the biscuits.

My best friend took me here for my birthday. The atmosphere was great - we felt like we were in a cozy hipster cottage. And the food matched that too! The Saturday we went, it was practically empty - I guess that's atypical, but we were happy to have a reservation anyway. We ordered the butter biscuits, smoked trout salad, shrimp and grits, and ribs. Everything was delicious! We particularly liked the first two small plates and we had way too much food for two. They sadly only had one (filling sounding) dessert - bread pudding, so we skipped on that. The service was great - they were extra nice about it being my birthday as well! Would totally go back. Mmm biscuitssss....

Located inside Palihotel, valet and street parking available. I was really looking forward to trying out this new restaurant, but came out unimpressed. There really shouldn't be a reason why they don't take reservation when there is an average wait for 1.5-2 hours. They do take reservation for a party of six or more, but if you're less than six, you're out of luck! The entire meal, I feel like I couldn't hear myself think or chew and sitting at a community table didn't help. The party seated with us was screaming their conversation just to keep it going. I also heard the other party's conversation across the room as well...that's how loud it was! The food was good, but nothing wowed me. It tasted fresh and healthy, but nothing new...dare I say boring? We practically tried everything on the menu and I was not impressed. The bill average about $60 a person. I would not recommend coming here on weekends and definitely not here for a date, unless you like to wait a long time and then scream at each other during dinner. Onto the next!

Great brunch. We got the Croque Madame, biscuits and gravy, and the bread pudding. We also got the bottomless mimosas, which---when they say bottomless---they really mean bottomless. I literally never saw the bottom of my glass.

Even though the waiters say their menu is meant for "sharing style", the portions range from small to normal size in my opinion. I guess that's why it's more of a tapas and fusion Southern food place rather than traditional. Ambience: -Single room- pretty like the cottage dining room of a minimalist Anthropologie girl -Gets loud fast- didn't realize I was yelling throughout my dinner Parking: -had no trouble finding nearby street parking. Food: -biscuits & condiments- delicious, hot and buttery. -tea brined chicken w/collard greens- nothing special, just okay -shrimp & grits- flavorful, yummy, and...tiny -drinks- happy hour yayy Service: -good-At first, the waiter seemed like he didn't want to be there, but I think that's just his manner of speaking. He was attentive and helpful with suggestions throughout the night. Other staff also promptly cleaned up our plates and accommodated our needs. The food was decent despite their weird pricing/portion system. Since service was not as bad as some of the yelp reviews said, I wouldn't mind coming back to try some other interesting things on the menu. It seemed like most people opted for the smoked trout, mussels, and cheddar grits.

ood is great. Service is SHHHHHIITTTTT!! Waited 20 minutes for our first drink. Half hour for one plate to come to the table. Others who sat after us had received their food while we continued to wait. Make sure you pay two hours for the parking meter !
