Our favourite ‘casual dinning’ restaurant in the US. Work with your waiter to construct a number of small plates to share. So many amazing flavours to be experienced in the one meal ! Outstanding food quality. Good helpful service.

The food was fantastic, and so was the service! They had a wide variety of food, and it was all good. One dish was "only" very good, and when we mentioned that, they gave us a free desert to make up for it! We would...More
We have always enjoyed Tar and Roses, particularly dishes such as the pig tails. They have an interesting selection of wine by the glass. As all restaurants in LA these days, it’s hard to have a conversation over the music and general noise. Recently, we...More
