Hip destination's airy, minimalist setting is the backdrop for cutting-edge New American fare.- Google

It's hard to overstate how disappointing this place was. I'd never heard of it going in, but my coworker received strong recommendations and I was excited to try it. My thoughts: Everything was incredibly expensive. Were it a more low-key, laid-back place, I probably wouldn't feel as strongly negative. But when you're spending $100 a head for a meal, it better be at least passable cuisine. For a "tasting menu," you'd expect the items to have a *little* more taste. And that the portions would be large enough where more than one person could actually *get* a taste of said dish. Every item came with instructions for how to eat it. The beer selection was atrocious for such an expensive place. Even Stella Artois would have been an upgrade over the available options. The after-dinner coffee was in some ways a perfect complement to the meal that preceded it: insanely weak, pretentiously presented, and left with a bad taste in my mouth. There are MANY better places in Hollywood and literally any of them would be worth taking a risk on as opposed to going to Ink.

More "trend" than substance. Food was adequate, but left me hungry. Friendly bar staff and good, if small, drinks. Pricey for what you get.

Really good burger place! I love how modernized the decor is for a gastropub. The chicken sandwich and all the burgers are really good though I still think the leather ketchup on the burger (which is a fruitt roll up like texture of ketchup) is very weird. On the other burgers there is "cheese two ways" which is this really crispy cheese that is almost like a crunchy chip. Honestly I would prefer just having reg ketchup and cheese on my burger, but I give them credit for trying to be unique. this location is more spacious than the sawtelle location so that might be appealing to you. I've been to both and I can't say that there is much difference in quality from one to the other. I like the atmosphere at this one much better though. Both have really good beer selections as well. I wouldn't recommend getting the chicken wings. I thought they were dry but maybe that was just my experience. There isn't much parking besides street parking. If you live close by and want to avoid the hassle, taking a cheap uber might be the way to go.

Great service and welcoming ambiance. The food is inventive and did not disappoint. Ordered the beets, beef cheeks, polenta, gnocchi, and octopus. The beets were inventive and so delicious. The cheeks were melt in your mouth and much better than most steaks I've ever had. The polenta with bone marrow and the egg yolk gnocchi were so interesting and beautiful and just melts in your mouth. The servings sizes were just right so it's good to order more than one plate per person to share. Definitely a wonderful experience!

The small-portioned sandwiches are exquisite. Beautifully imagined, fresh, and artfully executed. The chips are flavorful, crisp and artisanal. The prices are so cheap it's almost funny, especially for pricey West Hollywood. However, the staff tires to imitate the vibe fresh-tattooed insouciance of Voltaggio's other restaurants, and it ends up reading like outward hostility. For example, there's an Asian guy with tattoos who comes out of the kitchen and hands people their food who would just as soon kill you. Humorless, mute, with a toxic deadpan. He came out and delivered a couple of office items to an employee who was sitting in the restaurant, and the interaction was hostile, and uncomfortable to watch. What is going on here? The employee just shrugged and walked away. Patrons here are the same. The clientele is that gaunt, tattoo sleeved, pasty 30's WeHo crowd with dower looks on their faces as they wonder why they're still single. The girls here have that desperate, size zero, sour LA demeanor as they try to hide their growling stomachs. The smart patrons just order their food to go, and wait a few extra minutes before pickup, just so they don't have to deal with the cold, dysfunctional ambience inside.
