The food is ok but pricey for the value, the problem though is the service which is provided by the French staff, they have attitude and they are disrespectful, the hostess has no manner. If you are going out to have a pleasant and relaxing night this place is not your friend. There are tons of other French restaurants in... More

It's French.. it yum.. its causal..it's a cafe...it's got a bakery. I would come here for breakfast and lunch. Nice spot! If I lived in LA I would be a regular.

Everything was delicious, especially the mussels. The service was very attentive. A bit pricy at $200 for 3 people. I'd come back again.

We stayed not far from this place and walking around on an evening and this place was packed so we walked in. We are vegan so had only one plate on the menu -- the vegetable casserole. It was solid but nothing beyond.

'LA Weekly' named Little Next Door macarons as #1 in taste, so I wanted to taste them myself, and see how they are compared to ones from Bottega Louie (#2 in the same article). As far as service is concerned, most of the staff seemed friendly (except one waiter and one waitress), but not fast in helping. I had to... More

The café is within walking distance from the B&B we stayed. The food is served to perfection. It was a unique experience because where we live, we don't have a French cuisine and this restaurant certainly lives up to its perfection. Great desserts too.

This is not a fancy foodie place, rather an unpretentious bistro, both in terms of the food and of the looks (choice of table and chairs). It also doubles as a pastry, and wine shop. The menu is not large, with some fairly typical bistro dishes (soup à l'oignon), sometimes with a small twist (e.g. harissa mayonnaise with your "hambourgeois").... More

I take every one of my visiting artists that I host from Europe to Little Next Store. Everyone, and I mean everyone, loves this place. I recommend for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If able, try to go when it is not too busy. Maybe a bit off prime time so that you can have a little peace. Word is out,... More
