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.

I came here for Sunday brunch. I ordered crab benedict, cornbread and Mason for my drink. Mason - 2 shots + milk. they only use whole milk or almond milk. delicious. Handsome coffee regular - My friend ordered it and it was too bitter for his taste. skillet cornbread - too greasy, kinda dry. didn't like it. pancake - again, too greasy and not fluffy at all. we didn't like it. crab benedict on fried tomato - was delicious and recommended.

The food was overall really great! I read a ton of reviews before going and all the recommendations were spot on. But what none of them mentioned was the fact that the restaurant is one square room with horrible accoustics (my parents would murder me if I took them there) and the fact that you can't make a reservation (is this the cheesecake factory?- my parents wouldnt even let me consider letting me take them to a restaurant that wont take a reservation) I know this is harsh. I gave it four stars because the food was great and the service was very friendly. But such an important part of going out to eat is the experience, and the loud atmosphere was just hard to get over and we ate at 9 pm trying to avoid the wait

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!

Currently dining. Coffee is bland and watered down. Atmosphere is loud and looks quite beaten up. I had no fork and a dirty knife, and the plates have chips in them. The food was so-so... Overall, not a pleasant dining experience.

The Hart and the Hunter is one of my favorite small restaurants tucked away in a hotel in West Hollywood. For their dinner service, they have a great New American menu available - get their butter biscuits which comes with a delicious apple butter or the delicious polenta cake. They all have great flavors along with a variety of drinks as well. Cost is about $15-$30. Parking-wise, there is usually a lot of great street parking available at night which shouldn't be too much of a problem.

The food is always great. The service is friendly and prompt. Can't say anything bad about this place. And hey, if you drink a bit too much at dinner you can always get a room at the Pali hotel.
