Had to wait 10 mins fir a table with reservations. Service was a bit slow. Friendly though. Ambiance was great. Music is playing but not to the point where you can’t hear people talking. Food and drinks were delicious.

Food is amazing- service is horrible. Hostess was rude to us, and got in multiple altercations with other tables that we had to sit and watch 🙄 food and drinks though we’re delicious!

It can be better, even though we had reservations we had to wait additional 30 min to get in, I didnt like that part, but everything else was good.

Food was a B+. For the price you expect more, but then again what can you expect in Los Angeles.

I liked the atmosphere, I could see how other people wouldn’t necessarily find it “low key”. It’s sort of got a clubby buzz to it. Which I liked. But if you’re looking for a quiet romantic spot with smooth jazz piano in the background this isn’t the spot. I actually think they had the drake playlist on all night here. Lol.

Only hiccup was at the end of my meal. Paid my check, ordered my Uber. I was waiting in my seat for the Uber to arrive, it said 4 minutes on my phone. Host asked me how long for my Uber I said 4 minutes.
He said “okay.”

He comes back 60 seconds later and says how’s that Uber coming. I said “3 minutes” he said “okay can we have you wait outside then?”

Like really?

I paid 200 bucks for a dinner for 1 and you won’t let me chill in my seat for 3 more minutes while I wait for my Uber to arrive?

Absolutely Pathetic.

The ambiance was great, perhaps they didnt anticipate a busy Monday night dinner, it seems like the server had too many tables in their section

Great first time experience, aside from them running out of the hand made rigatoni pasta 😭. Great drinks. Great food. Server was super nice. Definitely the perfect LA vibe. Can’t wait to go again.

The place had a great ambience and music. The food and drinks were good. I wasn’t happy about how we were treated throughout our night. Right after we ordered our dinners we were told to move to lounge area because the table had an hour and half limit. We had 4 cocktails and an appetizer prior to our dinner. We were never told there was a limit. The waitress left and didn’t come back ( with our check) until we finish our dinners. 5 minutes after the waitress brought our check, the host came and told us to pay our checks because the next guests have arrived. Throughout the whole night there were plenty of empty tables. The guests who stayed longer than us never seemed to be bothered by restaurant staff. It makes me question if only my party was being inconvenienced.

This was my first time dining here and I had high expectations. My girlfriend and I came here on a Saturday night. We had a reservation for 7:30, but I called on our way to let them know that we were running a little late because of traffic. They let me know at this point that the reservation had a 90 minute max. We arrived at 7:45 and then were told our table wasn't ready. We waited for about 10 minutes which was no big deal. We had multiple drinks and split about 4 dishes. Everything we ate and drank was a 10 out of 10. We loved it! The only issue we had was our server consistently reminding us about the time and rushing us along. It seems like bad business to rush people along when they are consistently ordering food and drinks. We spent about $250, which was fair given the quality of food and drinks. We will definitely be back, just would prefer not to feel rushed if possible.

We had to Stand waiting 30 minutes to get seated even though we had a reservation. The hostess was not friendly or helpful. They sat us in a loud, bright area. The whole point we booked this place was bc we wanted to dine in a dim, outdoor ambiance but that didn’t happen either. The food was good but that was the only thing. The service was terrible and less accommodating.

The wait experience was horrible. I made reservations at 9:30pm and didn’t get seated till 10:20. Reservations are made for you to go in and eat at the time reserved, not to wait around for 50 minutes. The ambiance is beautiful, food is amazing. Waiters can not multi task and forget about you. The service isn’t great overall but the food is good.
