The drinks are amazing and their beer is good too. I like the location and ambiance. Staff was friendly enough to happily serve us after the closing time. Thanks

Why is this restaurant closing? To call the flavours experimental or the technique molecular is selling Red Medicine short. There is such thought behind the menu and such clarity of vision this should be on everyone's list before the doors close for good. Try it for yourself. And whatever you do, get the Redwood Ice for dessert.

We started off on the wrong foot. We had asked for a Vietnamese food reccomendation from the concierge and made it here after a 20 minute walk. However, although there is some obscure connection with Vietnamese food (via the chef), there is nothing remotely Vietnamese about the food. That said, the food, the wine recommendations and the quality of service... More

If you're hungry in LA post 11, this is the place to go to! They have a bar menu with many options post 11 PM when most restaurants in town are shut. Must get their Banh Mi, Chicken Dumplings (MUST!) and any cocktail from their cocktail list. If you go for lunch, try Chef Jordan Kahn's tasting menu. The man... More

Had heard a lot about this place, so maybe my expectations where simply too high. The ambience is nice, the service was alright but some of the food was really disappointing: the sweet potatoes had a weird consistency and the chicken liver had a somewhat dull and unidentifiable taste. The chicken dumplings and the halibut were good though. Given the... More

Check one off the bucket list of restaurants! We enjoyed Red Medicine - its a a culinary adventure inspired by Vietnamese cuisine. The ambience was trendy and inviting, the service was friendly and accommodating, and the presentation of food like beautiful pieces of art. The restaurant itself is very contemporary, low lit (at night) and has great ambiance. Our waitress... More

I like the ambiance of this restaurant and thought all the food that I tried was good but they have very few options if you cannot eat dairy and this is really a family style restaurant. Because i could not eat dairy and I went only with my husband, he was either left with huge portions or had to eat... More

Definitely met expectations. Food and service were great. I like many reviewers were surprised by the lack of wait list to get in given the quality. Get in while you can! Also had the most amazing cocktail in a long time. It was up the with the European standards. I find LA does not really excel at cocktails except for... More

Red Rum. Red Rum. Eating here read-backwards was murder on patience and temperament. A Red Mess. The food was innovative, outlandishly even, and delicious. The pheasant was the best: And the least easiest to identify-the-accompaniments "in the style of Alain Chapel" - we never were advised to what strange ingredients were combined to this scientific dish. The sweet potato with... More
