One of my favorite sandwich spots. Great selection of reasonably priced delicious sandwiches on fresh bread. Friendly staff, fast service, great iced coffee. Parking can be a challenge.

Haven't had a meal here that I've regretted. Everything is good though a few items could get too rich or fatty. The Charcoal potatoes are so tasty filling and a great value.

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.

It's fast, easy and relatively inexpensive for this high end hood. I've tried quite a few of their sandwiches and as much as my mouth waters when I read the menu, I just can't fall in love with their sandwiches...but I'm super picky about sandwich texture and I won't like how the ice Berg lettuce is shredded or how slimy the combo of their the turkey and avocado felt on the bread. I'm also not into their bread. In a pinch, this place will do. My coworkers LOVE it. One Exception is the bacon egg and cheese breakfast sandwich....MMM. Love their chips!

The food here is absolutely amazing. On top of the bizarre dishes they create, they actually taste good. Normally I'm quite open to weird tasting food that looks pretty but here it tastes good too. Apple Caramel Burnt Wood Ice Cream. Must have! The only criticism I have is that the restaurant is in-proportionally noisy and made having a conversation even for a table of two tiring and eventually resulted in a very 'quiet' night. Our server wasn't good but she shouldn't represent all servers because the two waiters for tables on either side of us were outstanding. We just got the mother like waitress who didn't like to listen and was a little judgemental of our choice of food.

Tourists beware. Seriously. This food is not for normal people. I tried four different dishes before giving up and spent nearly $200. Service was very meh, they could tell we didn't like the food. I still gave Ink 5 stars though - I'm not going to give it a negative rating just because I'm not a fancy Hollywood gal. This restaurant is just not for me. I bet adventurous people love it?

I'd give this palace about 3.5 stars. I might have had too much hype with this place bc of Michael voltaggio's reputation. Not that the place is bad, but it's not great. The sandwiches are unique but the taste of the ones I ordered weren't to my expectation. I had the banh mi, cold fried chicken, spicy tuna, and cuban. Out of these, I enjoyed the Cuban the best. I'd give it a 4.5, while I'd give the banh mi a 4, and the others 3. However the three cold sandwiches are apparently the most popular.

I am not from LA but i was doing a transfer at LAX and i was hungry during my wait. I ordered a chorizo sandwich in the airports ink.shack for $6.99, thinking it would be ok and without knowing the story of ink.shack and its creator. First bite into the chorizo egg&cheese and i was transported back to Spain. Loved the bread, the mix of the ingredients and the price. Id assume maybe it would be even cheaper in the original branch. In any case, i think my money was very well spent, and next time im in LA ill try to find this original store~
