My son was very keen to dine at Shaquille’s since we are from Australia and he is a massive fan. The booking was easy, the staff were exemplary, so extraordinarily helpful and efficient and friendly. We could not have had a better experience and to cap it off the food was fabulous Thank you
Great food and great service. Good for a relaxed date night or with friends. Never had a bad dish there, 3 for 3. Great apps to share and every main dish brings food envy.
Everything was perfect
hostess knew my name
options for seating
great service and drinks
brisket sliders were spicy very good
margarita should not be served in a water glass. should be more appealing,
my guest enjoyed grilled cheese brisket very good.
prices were good.
Excellent food and service! Loved the chicken and mashed potato.
The cost of a whole chicken was RIDICULOUS!! Especially with no sides included ! The noodles on the Mac and cheese could’ve cooked longer, and the collard greens well let’s just say, no seasoning and the salt and pepper provided was too thick.....not cracked well at all!
The food was nasty not worth the money very disappointed
I went here for my birthday. The food was great and I love the “South of the boarder” drink. It is now one of my favorite drinks. Very nice People working at Shaquille’s . I really enjoyed myself.
Was loud for me. Had a difficult time trying to talk or hear. Food was outstanding, service was superb and friendly. We had a great time. Will be going back. Probably wait till the playoffs or the off season.
Great spot before a game!
Not very good. Took some family from out of town. Huge Lakers fan. Food was disappointing. Hostesses were the bright spot. They held our table until our party arrived. Good to see minority staff. Food could have been better.
Food Was good And the ambience was excellent
And that’s why I gave it 4 stars.
Amazing, Shaquille’s included Impossible Burgers on the menu. It was prepared with perfection, with an unbelievably good taste. Salad and fries were great. Thank you for including this specialty on your menu. And your Team, from check in, to Table Service was equivalent to Restaurants costing much much more!
I wasn’t blown away by anything here. It was casual fine dining with a very limited menu. I thought this place would be more fun but it was pretty basic. With all of the other options at LA Live, there is really no reason to eat here. Food was fine, server was nice, I guess we just expected more.
Everything was delicious. The brisket grilled cheese is to die for. This is my second time within a 2 week period and I would definitely go back. Servings are big enough to share and don't forget to get the pepper biscuits with the bacon jam. Also the drinks are really good.
I really enjoyed Shaquille's. The food was delicious and the ambiance and music were great! Our server was very kind and helpful. Will definitely be going back!
If a restaurant is going to charge $30 for 4 pieces of fried chicken, it better be amazing. It wasn’t here. Server was great. Speed of food was too fast. I say this because my chicken was all pink. So it was undercooked. It was far from being “fried”. Nothing crispy. Soggy. The best part of my meal was the tortilla soup (very spicy) and the fries. Mac & cheese was OK. Drinks were not strong. It was a $100.00 meal for 2 people. No dessert. I won’t be returning.
The staff was friendly and the food was amazing! I highly recommend this place a must try!
Food was great and server was excellent
Ordered the filet cooked medium. It came out extra well done. Would have sent it back but not enough time before needing to leave for a concert. Ordered a kir royale (champagne with the liquor chambord added). Came back with champagne and grapefruit juice. Seems that this restaurant would be great for just burgers/sandwiches and beer but didn't seem up to par for high end menu items. Huge fan of Shaquille the basketball player but unfortunately not of the restaurant.
Good for after the Kings game
We really enjoyed our experience. The staff was fantastic - from the hostess we met as we entered to our amazing waiter (Prince), to the people who brought the food to our table. Everyone was attentive, engaged and friendly. The food was delicious! Prince made some great suggestions and we had fun deciding what we would each have so we could try a bunch of things. Each item, the signature deviled eggs, Shaquille's take on a Cobb salad, the fried Chicken, the shrimp and grits, even the french fries, had complex and interesting flavors. I definitely recommend this place for your next visit to LA Live.
Service was good. Limited menu, no real ambience, food very average, expected better!
Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. Once seated it was hard to hear/communicate with the server due to music being so loud. We ordered the Spinach Dip and it was cold, the only thing warm was the small metal pot it came in. For Dinner we ordered 2 Cobb salads. One salad came with 2 small strips of chicken, while the other had a full breast of Chicken cut in strips. I brought it to the servers attention, and she just stood there and didn't even offer to have it corrected. I had ask to get equal amount of chicken as the other salad on the table. It was very obvious the difference. It took several minutes for her to return with the additional chicken and even extra salad dressing we had asked for.
Might have just been an off day, it happens.
The restaurant was very nice. The food was really tasty. We had deviled eggs and slider briskets. I liked the maple flavored bacon and the jalapeno slaw on the brisket.
Poor service and extremely slow to get the food out of the kitchen.
Great experience. Great location. We were in town for a Lakers game so it was fitting that we went here for dinner before hand. Great tasking food, great atmosphere, great prices. We loved it so much that we stopped in after the game for dessert!
The Mac n cheese was amazing!! As well as the chicken obviously!! We will definitely be eating here again
Awesome experience! Very friendly staff and accommodating. The food was frickin excellent and the drinks were strong! We ordered the ribeye, center cut filet, bbq beef dip, mac n cheese, and Shaq's famous fried chicken. Cant fit the photos and i dont feel like resizing but all so worth it.
Food was amazing! Music was super loud. Server was great.
Only complaint- the bartender was extremely rude. Almost like he didn’t want to serve us a beer while we waited for table.
Otherwise- it was a great dinner.
Love the lighting, food was good too the fries were pretty good. Bring Kobe burger back I need those 81 fries :( Prices were high but thats expected bc it’s in an expensive area. Would go to eat there again.
Great for staples event but pricey. Servings not a value to it's high price but tasty. Music too loud for easy conversation.
Upon arrival we were treated with such class, respect, and there was joy in the host’s eyes that made us feel she was genuinely happy we were there. The menu was full of so many things that looked delicious. We got the fried chicken, Mac and cheese, and French dip to share. The food came out hot, quickly, and every bite was perfect. We couldn’t believe the fried chicken was as tender and juicy as it was, it fell off the bone and the flavor was something I will probably spend a lifetime trying to duplicate. We had just missed Shaq being there by 20 minutes the server mentioned, but the experience alone was absolutely wonderful. Can’t wait to go back!
This was my second visit to Shaquille’s and I already have another reservation for next week. The food is delicious and the service is great. Everyone with whom we came into contact (both visits) was extremely friendly, helpful, and had a smile on their face. Excellent! My new favorite place.
We attended the Kobe Memorial and after had lunch Shaquille's. We ordered the fried chicken, salmon and kale salad. As we sat, sadly, we've been fans of Kobe since his career began, and waited for our food we wondered if we would see any of the celebrities that attended the memorial and to our wonderful surprise, Shaquille O'Neal walked in!
He didn't want to take pictures, but we understood.
When our food arrived it smelled and looked delicious. Well, worth the wait. Chicken was juicy, salmon was delicious and the salad fresh.
We will definitely, return when we attend Laker game, and it was a treat to have sat just feet away from Shaq.
Great fried chicken
This was my first time n the food was not good or season my sister never received her food nor did the waitress never came to check or see if we needed anything but your manager was very nice n kind we will not be back sorry
The fried chickens was expensive and a little overrated. it wasn't that crispy.
The environment is good for family gatherings and birthday celebration.
They played the best music (love their playlist).
Our server, she was so friendly and jolly.
I celebrated my birthday here on a Sunday afternoon and it was amazing. Great ambience, excellent food, good music, and friendly service. Expect to have a little patience with service on the weekends, super packed but if you make a reservation you'll be sitted quickly!
Awesome! Food was excellent!
