Tasty paella

The paellas are good in this cozy restaurant. There is also a good selection of Spanish dishes. The servers take very well care of you. i found this restaurant by chance on my way to the Beverly Center and I'm glad I tried it out.

Like every year by our visit to LA, we always eat at this Spanish restaurant. There is plenty of choice from the extensive menu. The staff is attentive and friendly and does everything to be able to make you a good night. Is well worth a visit. Best book in advance!

Place was great :) small, intimate restaurant - the tapas are absolutely amazing. However, the paella was much to be desired. It was ok - it wasn't bad, but having been to Spain recently, I was expecting something much, much better. Menu can be confusing for some: each person must spend 20.00 worth of food/drinks at the table. For a... More

Bitter disappoint awaits those who expect a great Spanish dining experience. And any claims that this is the best paella in LA are delusional. But our disappointment with the food and service could not have prepared us for when the server came running after us on the sidewalk outside the restaurant complaining about her tip. Need I say that we... More

La Paella is a gem. While L.A. is endlessly infatuated with celebrity restaurants featuring style over substance, La Paella goes in the other -- and most welcome -- direction. Outstanding service, a delightful atmosphere without a shred of pretense and, to be blunt, some of the best damn cooking in this or any other town. The paellas are exquisite and... More

Excellent food in a good location. The place haven't been updated but the service and the food are great. Do not plan a visit on a Sunday, they don't open.

On a Saturday night my girlfriend said she felt like paella and made reservations for LA Paella, which she'd been to before, but which I'd never even heard of. We found metered parking on the street around the corner, and since we were there after 8 PM, parking was free. Once inside, I really liked the atmosphere and décor of... More

The paella is always excellent and well presented. The sangria was very good. The restaurant is in a home type setting which is very relaxing. Love going here for dinner.
