Not a place for a party! – I agree with the other reviews – food in this restaurant is good and I can’t complain. Service is mostly good. However, the owner of this place is not the most honest guy.
Let me explain. I had a birthday party in this place for 20 guests. Besides, that we have been charged unheard of 21% tips (very nice round sum), on the bill we had other several charges that I only recognized the next day. I called the owner who agreed with me. We parted with his promise to review and him asking me to call back in couple days. I bet, you figured out by now that he never again took any of my calls nor called me, myself (such a nice person he was when I was setting up the party). Thinking he must be a busy guy, I even asked person on the phone to check with the owner and credit my credit card for the overcharged amount (huh – huh – huh). Seems my chances on collecting this money are very slim or rather non-existent…..
So, perhaps , a dinner for two in this place is Okay (please don’t drink too much and check your bill carefully). Under no circumstances, I’m recommending this place for a party to anybody!
surprisingly delicious!! – we took my grandma for dinner for her bday here and i was pleasantly surprised! because when we got here and i looked at the menu of this restaurant i thought to myself what the hell kind of restaurant is this? it has won ton soup (chinese) then it had some borscht (russian) spaghetti (italian) the menu just looked like a mushed up different types of food all together. however i did order the eggplant spinach salad with mushroom dumpling (OMG MAY I SAY DELICIOUS!!) then i had the ragu bolognese (OMG EXCELLENT!! ) i normally ask for extra sauce and extra cheese but it came with it all without being ordered!! my grandma ate their special which was seafood pasta, that was quite delicious too. it had mussels from maine which were small-medium , shrimp, calamari etc usually calamari i have experienced are kinda tough and chewy esp if it is in pasta with other seafood this one was soft and tender!!. im getting hungry just thinking of it. my mother got lamb shank she loved it!! we got tiramisu and that was DELICIOUS! needless to say we will be back!!
Best ling cod fish plate ever!!!! – The food is consistently good. NEVER had a bad dish and we have dinned there dozens of times. Highly recommend. The dollar salad (yes, it is $1.00) a nice add on and enough for a salad taste?Love the Potato Varenky as appetizer. Try the ling cod, incredible!!!
One of my favorite restaurants in town – I am a restaurateur; my family ran a very successful casual fine dining restaurant on the westside for over a decade. From an insiders perspective, the Out Take is a stellar operation. The food is consistently very good, the service motivated, the wines diverse, the prices reasonable and the parking easy. While the decor isn't par with some fancy westside restaurants...who cares? My family and I have been dining regularly at the Out Take for years and have not had a single experience that was sub par. It's truly city caliber food at valley prices, without any city attitude.
Editorial Review – Taste the delicious seafood inspired dishes at Out Take Bistro while dining inside for a cozy, fine dining experience or the patio for a great sunny lunchtime alternative in Studio City.
Consistently Great Food – One of my favorite restaurants simply because the food is ALWAYS good and is there any other barometer for a great restaurant. Gotta have the potato vernisches (sp?) for an appetizer. After that, you simply cannot go wrong with any entree. Enjoy! oh, the parking is tough since this place is so darn good it is now so darn popular too...but well worth the wait or the walk.
Five star food for three star prices! – Outtake is our favorite neighborhood bistro. The service is wonderful. The food quality is far beyond the price-range. The presentation is always impressive. The specials are consistently the best pick, especially if they are seafood. Of course, there is better food to be had in LA, but you'll be hard pressed to find dinner for two under $100 including wine! Brunch is wonderful as well. Outtake has mastered the art of cheap high end dining. The atmosphere is great as well. Enjoy!
not good food and service – i went to this restaurant hoping to have a good meal. I was very dissapointed with the taste and quality of the food. The service was not up to the name of the restaurant. I waited to much between first and main course, the service needs improvement. i would not go back to this restaurant.
Outtake Bistro – The last two times we have eaten at Outtake, dinner food and service has been poor. Portions were large . but poorly presented, tasteless (Meat loaf sandwich, two slices about a half inch each). With the bun, the sandwich was too large to bite. French fries were cooked with spices that ruined the flavor.
Service was poor on each occasion. Specials of the evening were recited rapidly, and not understandable.
At the old location, quality, consistency and service were consistently outstanding. The new location is deficient in all three. We are not likely to return.
Good food, reasonable prices – I just at this restaurant for the first time and I would definitely go again. The prices were reasonable, and the food and service were really good. There is a nice atmosphere there. Also, they had some tasty vegetarian options. I loved the vegetarian wonton soup.
