Coffee is great here and waiters are good with the refills. Staff is overall consistently super friendly. They have brunch drinks including grapefruit mimosas! (These are mainly champagne too) And a good selection of craft beers.

Food was good, experience was okay and staff is genuinely nice. I could only describe them as "trying too hard" but that does not take away from the experience. Overall, it is good food, maybe not worth the price tag.

My girlfriend just told me about her Belated Birthday Lunch and the Service was Horrible. The Waiter totally ignores her and her Girlfriend, it took way more than 15 minutes to serve them, and that is bad. The Chef or Cook actually delivered their food because the waiter (which can't be called a Maitre’D in this occasion) was nowhere to be found. Another Waiter was flagged to ask for service. Their Lunch was around 1Pm today and the server was the one with the fake ponytail. For the price they paid for Pasta the service was ridiculous, that jerk better hear of this or get reprimanded. I've never had the pleasure of working in the Food Service industry, if he doesn't like it, maybe go back to school and get some attitude training. If I was in that position it would have been because of my choices not anyone else’s for me to display my miserableness. I would not walk in there after what I’ve heard today. No stars for you. Especially the waiter with the ponytail and fake French accent. I had to give you one out of Pity.

Service was very slow. I was brought the wrong meal. Food was so-so. Tables for two are too close together for LA standards. I will stick with Chaya.

I've been meaning to try this place for two years, now. Thank goodness Dine LA got me to quit dragging my foodie feet during restaurant week, because it was amazing! The decor is gorgeous, and just walking through the door makes one feel like a celebrity or fancy business mogul about to partake in some seriously high end cuisine. The vibe in itself is worth the trip. Even the front door is hard to find. Now, to the food! First of all, I think one needs to have somewhat of a sophisticated palate in order to enjoy the food here. Had I taken one of my McDonald's loving friends, they would have thrown a fit due to the prices, alone. Be forewarned, the portions are small, and the food is, shall we say, "creative." No burgers and fries here, I'm afraid. However, it's also aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Every dish is a work of art. And the flavors, although a bit out of the norm, are surprisingly vibrant, unique, and blend very well together. (i.e. I wasn't expecting buffalo mozzarella to go so well with what appeared to be crushed high quality Oreo cookies, cherry tomatoes, and flower petals, which I hope were edible). They are known for their pasta & happy hour. And their Panna Cotta dessert, though quite simple, awakened so many different colors, and sounds, and feelings in me that I didn't even know I had locked away. It was that good. If you have nothing else there, order that. FYI: It's very small, so eat like a rich person, and make it last. Oh, and although dress code isn't exactly suit & tie, I highly suggest dressing nicely, as you will feel like the black sheep of the bunch if you decide to walk in there looking like you just rolled out of bed. And that's IF they let you in.
