    Overall Sendero is a very unique restaurant concept, with multiple, themed dining rooms. This recent experience was in the room called Lena, an Argentine-inspired Steakhouse. The service and food was all impeccable. The ambiance was warm and inviting. Chef Kevin Luzande is to be complimented.

    Amazing cuisine and the chef made us love every bite at Leña. The service was exceptional and up to the Standards of a Ritz Carlton restaurant. The music band made us enjoy our time with the nice beats that they were playing live. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone with an upscale taste.

    There were a couple of things to note: When we arrived at Lena, we needed to wait an additional 15 before we could be seated for our reservation. It took a while for us to get menus and the service overall was just slow. I had to flag the waiter down multiple times for us to get anything. Our desert menus and deserts also came out late. That being said, the food was absolutely amazing. The empanadas and bread we had was very tasty. My wife and I shared the ribeye which was plenty for 2 since we got 2 sides with it as well.

    Food and service very good. But even though I had a reservation well in advance of NYE and was staying at the Ritz for multiple days, they sat a "walk-in" party of the same size as mine (4 people) next to window while sitting us as far away as you can. So much for all "the views" of LA. Very disappointing. Additionally, they let the dress code down substantially to where we saw jeans. I won't be going back.

    Great place to try something different from The Palms or Flemmings near LA Live before a game. We found the Greater Omaha Bone In Rib Eye perfectly cooked. Medium Rare. A bit pricy, but big enough to share for 2. Restaurant has a great view of the city, great place for a date night.

    staff & waiter service excellent; mixed drinks were excellent (best); food pricey for portion size, quality: 30oz at $195 was good but for price we were expecting to be blown away.... left dissappointed; sides (mashed potato and mushrooms) were good but portions on the small size; nice views & ambience but left with feeling the culinary experience should have been more for a $400+ tab.

    Excellent food, wine and service. I had the 8 oz. prime steak with potatoes and it was among the best I’ve had. Steak had nice, crispy outside, and soft buttery inside. It paired excellently with the Pinot Noir. Our server was attentive and gracious, and the complimentary mussels added a special and delicious touch. Ambience was beautiful with excellent views of downtown LA.

    Way way way over priced. Food was mediocre. Steaks were good but only one was cooked to order and are among the highest prices in the city. Others order medium rare and received medium well. Salmon and as was very sub par. Place was dead on a Saturday night when everything else was crowded. Now we unfortunately know why.
