Terrible food, strange crowd of geriatrics and young workers – Obviously a lot of fake reviews on citysearch now. The food here was disgusting to say the least. It was more like a cheap buffet food in las vegas. None of the three in our group was happy with the appetizers or entrees. The owner and the managers promised to take out some items fromthe the bill and did not and admitted to their lie at the end.
Comfortable and tasty – Ate there over the weekend with wife and fellow couple. I ordered the bouillabaisse which was excellent and my wife had the whitefish which was also excellent. Our friends had a few requests and the waitress was very accomodating, a nice place.
Great Food, Great Place – Last night I met my husband at this cozy restaurant that I had never been to before and was blown away with. It looks very inconspicuous on the outside, but don't let that fool you, you walk into a romantic patio strung with lights and then into a gleaming restaurant where it seems everyone knows everyone. The staff seemed to know and care so much about many of the patrons that I wanted to be 'a regular.' The food was absolutely divine and the wine list wasn't too shabby either! I ordered the tuna tar tar and the garlic chicken breast! So good! The sauce on the chicken was amazing and the chicken was so moist! My husband had the tilapia, which was really scrumptious as well. We finished our meal off with coffee and a giant tiramisu cheesecake that was to die for! Overall we had quite a nice time here, definitely a secret gem in LA!
mmm – The food is great and the location can't be compared, perfect meeting place for friends on the westside and the valley.
Melt in your mouth filet mignon – We took some friends here for my husbands birthday last weekend and were so pleased. The guys both ordered the filet mignon with horseradish mashed potatoes & shitaki gravy. It was so tender that they didn't even need a knife to cut it! Outstanding! I had the grilled salmon with butternut squash and my friend had the blackened sea scallops over an awesome goat cheese and pancetta salad. Both, also outstanding! We had meantioned when we made the reservation that it was a birthday and the adorable waitress brought out a candle lit banana split the size of Texas. What an impressive presentation and it was scrumptious, as well! We can't wait to go back.
best salads! – This place has the best Chopped Vegetable salad I have ever had! It's unlike any other, and just healthy and tasty. The Caesar Salad is great too and you can add chicken or scallops or shrimp to any of the salads. We were treated really well and I would go back there anytime to eat again.
Sepulveda's secret spot – I live in Encino and my kids live on the Westside. Bel Air Bar and Grill is a godsend! It's the only good restaurant where we can meet "in between". Truthfully, I'd drive twice the distance to eat the food. Some of the best dishes in LA. Try the boullabaise or the lamb. Some of the pastas have been on the menu a little to long though-- but it doesn't pretend to be Valentino. It's a cozy, friendly place; and worth the price. Quick story: My kids went to USC. We were in there one night sitting next to a Trojan legend. My wife, never the shrinking violet, approached him and told him that our kids were fellow alumni. He laughed, got up and came over to say Hi! It's that type of place. The only negative we ever experienced was one night, after a function at the Getty Museum, we popped in after 9:00. The kitchen was closed. Oh well, we've got no business eating that late, anyway.
Best Caesar Salad and Seafood Bouillabaisse – Great rendevouz spot between the Valley and the Westside! A somewhat hidden gem
seen only by its low-key sign on the street. The menu is an excursion into 'Favorite
Foods' land. Meat loaf? Steak Parmigiana? Fried Calamari? oh, don't tell me! Macaroni and Cheese with white truffle oil, too? (my latest obsession). Cozy fireplace tables are
the way to go, though eating at or in the comfortable Bar with all the regular (and I do
mean REGULAR) customers is always entertaining. Staff seems to know everyone's name and desires, especially Armando (the long suffering bartender) who makes the best
Margarita in the City. Waiters are friendly and helpful (even though I bring my friend who is 'The Queen of Menu Substitutions' and cringe myself at what she asks the kitchen to do) and they haven't rolled their eyes or said no to a special request yet! Try dining on the enclosed patio with the twinkle lights. It's away from the dining room clamor and set up to make for a romantic experience. I've been coming here for years and almost don't want to spoil its warm neighborhood feel with 'The Others', but the food is outstanding, the Staff is welcoming and I know I can at least always get a seat at the bar!
EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE AND FOOD!! Great for a romantic evening or for a group! – I went here for a special occasion dinner with my husband and my parents. I made the reservation a week beforehand and we had a fantastic table right by the fireplace. The food was delicious. I ordered the special that night which was a butternut squash risotto with seared scallops and it was excellent. My Mom commented that her filet mignon was one of the best she ever had. We sampled several appetizers including the chicken potstickers and the calamari. Everything we had was scrumptious and the desserts were out of this world! They also had a very extensive wine menu which is always a plus.
The service was outstanding. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. He told us all of the changes they were making to become more environmentally responsible. He said they had just installed a new water system for flat and sparkling water so they are not constantly throwing out bottles and he also mentioned that they are composting. He said that over time they will be doing more improvements such as these in an effort to become a completely "GREEN" restaurant.
I would highly recommend this restaurant. It's now one of my FAVORITE spots!
