Happy hour is from 4-7pm but they also stay open late for late night cravings. I love their turkey burger and eggs benedict. They also serve the same bread as Lawry's.
This place is so great and really lives up to it's reputation! – I hardly ever get out to this side of town and am actually a true native of old-town Pasadena restaurants, however a gal's got to eat, right?! Well I was so pleased that I did happen to eat here; the food was delicious and came out quickly and it was reasonably priced to my surprise. I thought the servers attitudes were right on with the surroundings (I mean, come on it IS Beverly Hills)...so if anyone has dined here and taken it personally, they should give it another go.
Extensive menu & kid-friendly – I've come here several times with different members of my extended family and we've always left happy and full. The menu is extensive and has been delicious so far, and my kids were treated very well. This seems to be a great date place as well as being family-friendly.
"Would be actors provide would be serivce" – The food was fairly good. There are no complaints here about that, but the service was enough to turn the most loyal customer away. On a particular day, I committed the cardinal error of asking the waiter the price of one of the specials. He told me, "If you have to ask, you don't belong here." Later I asked another question and when the waiter walked away, he gave me a "dirty look." My daughter, a doctor, who was with me at the time went to speak to the manager. As she said, "I'm allowed to treat you that way when I'm angry with you, Mom, but no one else is!" The manager could have cared less and was absolutely rude to both of us, two professional women. Come to think of it, no one deserves that treatment, professional or not. I had been there before this particular incident and found the servers much the same, "would be actors, providing would be service!"
overwhelming menu and portions – I took one look at the menu and was immediately overwhelmed. It was enormous and quite varied, which I suppose is typical of a diner. And that's exactly what Kate's is; an upscale diner. True to diner form, the portions were large (I had the meatloaf and took half of it home) yet enjoyable. My companions also liked their meals (garden burger, pasta with broccoli, and rotisserie chicken). There were two things that stood out to us, the placemats and the service. The placemats were plastic with "Kate Mantilini" cut out of the top. And the service was great. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful when discussing the menu. In addition, she saw us struggling to divide the bill and offered to split it for us. Overall it was an enjoyable meal.
Late night burgers... – I can't vouch for anything else on the menu except the burgers--Kate Mantilini is the best place in LA to get a FABULOUS burger and a bottle of red. My foodie hubby and I have been twice a month all summer. A delish burger for $10 (with blue cheese), you can't beat it. Fries are extra, yes, but they're worth it, too (frenchy style, skinny and crispy). Waiters are attentive and friendly--the antithesis of LA snooty.
Good for the right crowd – I went to Kate Mantilini as a 21 year old college student, nicely dressed, and very polite. However, the hostess and waiter treated me as though I was a 5 year old about to run into the dessert tray. We were all but ignored by the waiter, who rushed us out the door before we finished swallowing. They brought us bread that was burned to a crisp, an obvious accident that never would have appeared on the table of the older couple next to us. The food is a great combination of comfort and high-end, but is extremely expensive. It is a good place for a date, but if you want good service, wait until you're at least 30.
Love It – I've been enjoying an occasional lunch or dinner here for years. I've always found the service very good and the prices, while not "cheap", are quite reasonable for the area and the quality of the food served.
Great Sunday classic breakfast in LA !! – I have been going 1 to 2 times a month for breakfast on Sundays for the last 5 years (along with my little girl and wife) and I have only good things to say about this restaurant. The service is most of the time great, the staff is very friendly and accomodating. The food is perfection, best eggs benedict in town. I am proud to take friends with us there. Another plus is it's a great restaurant that is actually child friendly which is hard to find in this city!
RIP OFF – Rude maitre d'. Their policy is not to seat anyone until the ENTIRE party arrives, so, if (as in our case) the fourth person is late, everyone else is left standing. Apparently, they assume all people who sit at tables without ordering right away are slackers. The crowd is middle-aged and stupid looking. The kind who will pay $70 per ticket to watch a bad play. Lots of big hair and bad makeup. Took forever to get our food (what there was of it) and then we were 'accidentally' overcharged by our inattentive waiter. Since when is dining out supposed to be a strenuous workout? All that armwaving to get our waiter's attention, whew! Next time I'll bring a red flag. Any restaurant in this city with a 'name' is a tourist trap, and this place is no exception. Oh, and the place has no class. NONE.
ok – Really good food on certain days (like when they on Thursdays have Osso Bucco and Fridays have Veal Milanese) and some other dishes all the time but what's about the prices? It is certainly not $$ as Citysearch suggests. More $$$. Wort it? Perhaps. I think so.
