Alcove in Hipster Town

The food is good and hefty, their Turkey panini and salmon burger is worth the gastronomical investment. Very good quality. I am not very enthused about their ordering process of having to go to a cashier, order and pay, get a number and wait for the serving staff to deliver. It somehow goes against the grain of the ambiance of... More

Found this place on-line. It was a bit warm in LA (90+). The food was excellent. Service was quite good but heat didn't help. I would not hold the weather against them. Great bar and very pleasant atmosphere.

Offering good, tasteful food in the alfresco setting made this a pleasant experience. Chairs were uncomfortable but the entire experience (other than chairs) was delightful. Menu offered a superb variety for lunch. Food was a little slow in arriving. Staff was enthusiastic and friendly. A few, easy improvements and this would be a five star revue.

One of our favorite places when visiting Los Angeles each winter. We live on the East Coast and have a condo in WeHo for the winters. We always make it a point to go here at least twice doing our stay and with any guest that may be visiting us ;-) From the time you pull up to the valet... More

The sandwiches were yummy, huge and reasonably priced. Their chocolate was to DIE for (took an assortment for a gathering) and it was all the RAGE for all the women! The cocktail of the day way NOT only cheap for what it was but also a totally different concoction and SUPER yum!

I have been patronizing the Alcove since late 2004 when this restaurant opened for business. The place has physically altered to some degree and the menu has made several changes but I like the food. Recently, my friends from Washington D.C. had heard about this place and wanted to try it out. They were pleased with the experience. We sat... More

The restaurant is cosy and the food good. Hip kind of place, very Californian in terms of food, service and crowd. Very nice for lunch, even late.

I was visiting a friend for a day and she was so excited to take me here, I was not disappointed. I had a tea latte, croissant, and a breakfast panini, all were very delicious. I will definitely be back when I'm in L.A. The only reason I gave only 4 stars is because I almost got attacked by birds... More
