This was a great find. Staff was professional, friendly, and went out of their way to give my friend and I a great experience. We were given a complimentary dish from the kitchen of an Asian inspired beef carpaccio, which was exquisite. You can't really...More

Loved every single plate we ordered to share. Delicious from beginning to end. The place is zero pretentious, super simple, and casual. The hostess was extremely kind and our server very nice, attentive and friendly. The food came very fast from the kitchen after ordering,...More

Everything here is delicious. Just be careful to save room for dessert. Do not leave without trying the bacon chocolate crunch bar (and maybe take another to go). The Boner Burger (bone marrow) is a must try; it's an 'off-menu' item but has been available...More

Our LA friends took us here for brunch on a Sunday. The place was only half full on a beautiful day in LA. I'm told it is really necessary to book for dinner but brunch is a bit easier. Interesting brunch menu with hamachi tostada,...More

No sign outside. Hard to make a reservation. Terrible acoustics. But the food is incredible. Every mouthful delicious. Served family style. Highlights included the Rabbit, the yams, the giant prawns and the yellowtail. Stop reading reviews and just get on the phone to these guys,...More
