I love high end dinning but this was disappointing. Yes, they have a lot of wine to choose from but high end dinner is about the whole experience. From the time I enter the door till the time I leave, is the experience I'm looking for from a restaurant with "$$$$". Don't get me wrong, food was tasty but the... More

Restaurant run by the Wine House one of the more popular wine stores in WLA. The Building feels to industrial and not in a good sort of way. Once you get inside it stands up pretty as a reliable nice spot to have a good meal and some wine.

Usually pleased with the food, but with the new chef and menu changes, the food quality and selections did not meet expectations. The previous salad menu choices are gone, other favorite menu selections have disappeared, and prices remain high. Our whole group was very disappointed. Unfortunately, not a favorite place anymore.

This used to be a favorite. Chef Todd Barrie was amazing. When he left the prices went up and the quality down. The service has been suffering too. The reviews also went down...until a publicist took over. Chef Todd is still available for catering, but not through the restaurant.

Went for a bite after a matinee at the Geffen. Ordered heirloom carrots and lamb flatbread AND a tasting flight of Rioja wines. After the flight was poured, woman came over and explained each wine and why its interesting- also in what order to do so. They were all delicious and I'm glad I followed her advice of tasting order.... More

We went there for a Groupon wine paired dinner. Sometimes when they see that, you get ignored. Not here. The food was first rate as was the service and the wine parings really made sense. Hard to believe the fois gras was art f the deal but it was and since my dining partner was not a fan, I got... More

We've been here several times before and thought this small, quaint restaurant would be romantic and fun for her special day. I was spot on as it did deliver what was expected. It sits above The Wine House up a driveway in the rear. You can be assured that the wine selection is special. They feature different wines by the... More

The menu is confusing as the food is "paired" with wine---indeed a different approach but a little difficult to comprehend when from salad through entrees are scattered amongst white and reds! The atmosphere is local and genuine with mostly comfortable seats but no round tables The food is average given all of the other outstanding LA establishments that are near... More

My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner, having never gone before. They really are into wines- which neither me nor my wife drink. That's OK. We went for the food. The menu is varied. I think a chef runs the show here b/c he/she has a bunch of special, unique items on the menu. We were not... More
