There was a nice vibe and our waitress was really polite but the food was mostly disappointing. The cuisine is a Mex-Spanish-Asian fusion. Almost everything is spicy. I liked the duck dish and i loved the chocolate dessert.

I took a friend for birthday brunch. The meal was delicious (the blue corn muffins are a must) and our server was delightful and attentive. Will absolutely go back again... and again

Very tasty, but mostly 1 to 2 bites when shared with one other. Shrimp ceviche cone & chili rellenos were good, but so spicy as to require large volumes of water. Filet mignon with mushrooms was a tad larger portion & kale was delightful.

Come for the drinks, extraordinary selection of booze and inventive bartenders. As for the food, bring a microscope and a wad of cash, that's what they call tapas. "Indian butter is what they call guacamole, and it goes from there.

I've had dinner a few times at Playa and always enjoyed it. I recently had the opportunity to try it for brunch. It's more-or-less your traditional brunch but with a spicy latin twist. The room is terrific looking and on a beautiful Sunday they had...More

Description
Playa is more than a "Beach". It represents the open air, laid-back, coastal lifestyle that is Los Angeles. Playa expresses a relaxed, urban latin vibe, as envisioned by Chef/Owner John Rivera Sedlar and the creative team who have turned his vision into a restaurant reality.
