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

This was my first meal at Red Medicine. First off, if you plan on going there, read the menu, read the bio's, see what this guy is doing. It is truly amazing, not only a fantastic display when your meals arrive but a devilish ride on some crazed herbalists roller coaster. Seriously.... if your idea of herbs are salt and... More

WOW- where should I begin... Got it - with the tasting menu! I must say that, of all the tasting menus that I've had throughout my life, the mouthwatering, spectacular tasting menu at Red Medicine wins the grand prize! The slow-roasted lamb shoulder - to die for; the crab with smeared garlic sauce around the dish - heavenly; the baby... More

If I count my big toes as thumb substitutes, then I can give Red Medicine FOUR thumbs up, which is just about right for this remarkable, edgy, warm dining spot with dishes that define uniqueness in presentation, taste, creativity, imagination, and satisfaction. I promise at first you will smile at the ingredients listed on the menu and wonder what on... More

this is s a very special restaurant and it is all about subtlety. Inspired by Vietnamese cuisine which is using a lot of herbs, the dishes are not only beautiful but sophisticated for the palate: a mix of surprising taste are delicately combined. this not heavy, no potato, rice, bread to feed you, it's just about the product itself. I... More

The food is beautifully presented, with unusual food combinations. Unfortunately nothing we ordered was outstanding. We started by sharing the mushroom dish, which was OK but barely so. Next we each had the uni dish, which had very little uni and was not very well conceived. As out 'main course' each of us had a fish dish. I had the... More

We ate here in April as part of our trip to LA. First off, the "food as art" concept here is FLAWLESS. The food is beautifully presented but thats about it apart from the dessert.....more on that later! The cocktails were good. We had the leeks, the wild mushrooms, the pork cheeks, the crab, and last but most definitely not... More

I live in the neighborhood and had tried Red Medicine a few times over that last year. Each time I've gone I'm not impressed and think "I'll give it one more try." Granted I've only eaten in the bar but have been told it's the same menu. I will say the cocktails are fantastic.
