THE OWNER LEASHED OUT AT MY GF!! – So I was at this restaurant with my girlfriend and friends for a quiet dinner. Everything was fine and we got ready to pay the bill. My gf decided to pay the bill and she decided to place a 5 dollar tip. The service was nothing special, nor did we feel like royalty. The bill was 80 bucks btw. Then the owner comes back to my gf and ask "is that 15 or a 5?" my gf said "5" then he said " who tips 5 dollars on a 80 dollar bill?" he said that mumbling as he was walking back to the front counter. My gf did not realize what he had said until our friend clear it up. She gf stood up and started to talk towards the front desk. I of course. stood up right behind her and was there when she contronted the owner about what he said. He then began to say, and i quote "THE WAITRESS LIVES OFF TIPS, NOT EVEN A DOG CAN LIVE OFF 5 DOLLARS!!" Then my gf told him that she does NOT have to give a tip unless she feels like so. He then said "THIS IS AMERICAN, YOU HAVE TO TIP!!" Then I came into this little fiasco and told him that my gf or anyone for that matter does not have to tip and that yes, this is America, and its HER RIGHT not to tip if she does not want to. Then I told the douch bag owner that if he REALLY cared what the waitress makes, then he should pay her more. He did not reply. My gf was furious and we simply asked for the tip back and took off. I dine out at least 3-4 times a week, all over so. cal. From san diego, to irvine, to LA and back. Never have I felt so disrespected in my life. I will NEVER go to this hole in the wall place that is WAY over priced. I hope this place shuts down. I was reading other reviews on this restaurant before I posted my review, and it seems like this douch has struck before. There is a review on here where the owner lashed out at a customer, who in the times we are in, still decided to spend him money at that establishment, and does not appreciate that. PEOPLE DONT GO HERE!! dont waste your money on this **** bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Some of the best food in Los Angeles! – With a delicate, yet not-so-overwhelming hint of Morrocan flavor, Cayenne Cafe is one of the most delightful places to eat in Los Angeles! A wide array of food keeps you coming back as to try everything on the menu at least once. However, once you find a favorite, you'll find it very difficult to choose something else instead. Cayenne has super friendly service and a clean romantic, cozy feeling that hooks you the second you walk in. Delightful teas and coffee brews are also a specialty. Don't miss out on the flamenco dancing the first Thursday of every month-when I happened to stumble onto this-it was truly a fun, coloful experience to my extreme liking.
Amazing breakfast on Beverly!! – We stopped into Cayenne last week on a trip from Vegas and were blown away by the food. There were lots of unique ingredients to choose from, my goat cheese, red pepper, purple onion, smoked turkey scramble made my day. The breakfast potatoes were awesome, prepared with really flavorful spices and a great Cayenne House Hot Sauce on the side. Nice big selection of hot teas to choose from and really fast, friendly service. Genuine hospitality, can't wait to dine here again on our next trip to LA.
Great lunch place – I have been here twice, and both times I have thoroughly enjoyed myself. The wait staff is attentive and the food has been delicious both times. I haven't tried their dinners, but I will make it a point to return one evening if it promises to be as good as lunch.
Nice area, decor and service but mediocre food – Very cute, low-key place in a prime spot and the owner/manager and servers were great and attentive to our group of 5, which is a rare combination in L.A.. Meanwhile, the food was just good but not great.
Amazingly refined cuisine with a refreshing mix of Eastern spices – My friend and I decided to try something different last Thursday and looked up Cayenne on City Search. Upon arriving we were greeted by a very polite gentleman who promptly led us to a nice outdoor table. I looked at the menu and was surprised to find such an eclectic mix of Moroccan, French, Italian, Greek and American food on the menu. My friend who had been here before, told me Cayenne Cafe is one of only 3 restaurants in town that orders the highest level grade A organic coffee, $50 a pound. So I ordered a latte to test it, and was amazed at how smooth it was, it had no bitter after taste whatsoever. I could definitely get hooked to coffee at Cayenne, its the best cup of coffee I've ever tasted.
The waiter had a happy face and upon my request suggested I try the kibbih as an appetizer, and the salmon with charmoula sauce as the main dish. My friend ordered his favorite dish Moroccan couscous. I must say they have an excellent chef because the salmon had some amazing flavors with a very delicate and refined mix of spices. I've never tasted salmon like this in my life, I think its Cayenne's unique blend of spices that creates the magic with this dish.
The happy chipper waiter told me since its Thursday night, there would be Flamenco dancing starting in 30 minutes. Sure enough, a guitar player and a dancer showed up with guitar and a wooden floor. When the performance started, I was quite surprised at how dramatic, exciting and charismatic Flamenco dancing is. All in all, it made for a very memorable and enjoyable evening out.
The waiter's were very courteous and attentive all evening long and the deserts were uniquely light and delicious. My friend and I had a wonderful time at Cayenne and I will definitely put this on my list of all time favorite places to hang out.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that has a sophisticated taste.
Great find! – Last night, my boyfriend and I were searching for a restaurant to go to near La Brea. We did not want to go anywhere that was crowded nor a place where we could not hear each other. We saw Cayenne on Beverly and decided to give it a try. It looked cute enough from the outside. It wasn't completely crowded but not empty enough to scare us away. We were surprised to find that it was a Moroccan restaurant. We were welcomed by a friendly man, who appeared to be an owner or manager. We were seated immediately in the outdoor heated patio...amazing for a Saturday night at 8:00 PM. The service was top-notch here...courteous and quick service/food. The belly dancing and ethnic music added a nice different element from the usual. The hummus was amazing. I ordered the chicken skewer dinner, which included rice, a salad or soup. Mine was average tasting...but how good can chicken skewers taste, I guess. My boyfriend ordered the chicken pommegranate dish and his was amazingly good. We definitely enjoyed the restaurant overall and suggest it as a fun different place to go to. I will steer towards something more adventurous on the menu next time.
Love this restaurant – I have been to Cayenne for lunch and dinner several times, and have always had a GREAT experience. The food, service, and ambience are all wonderful! Highly recommend!
