Description: Quinn Hatfield's deft touch in the kitchen shines through on his short but dead-on, market-fresh menu. Appetizers are playful: Fabulously fleshy charred octopus is offset by a citrus-candied orange rind, and an updated croque madame features fresh hamachi, along with proscuitto, quail egg and out-of-this-world brioche. Main courses are uniformly excellent, be it juicy pan-roasted seabass, meaty duck breast that eats like a steak, and luscious, mint-crusted rack of lamb. For desserts, Karen Hatfield outdoes herself with the molten-centered house specialty chocolate peanut butter truffle cake, which is worth every decadent calorie its name promises.

One of the best restaurants we have been to pm L.A. As soon as we entered we were quickly taken to a terrific table for four. We ordered cocktails which arrived quickly. We also all ordered the prix fixe seasonal menu which was outstanding and changes often so I won't go into the menu items. Service was very professional .... More

Having tried many Michelin starred restaurant around the world I thought I'll try this one too. A 1 star michelin in L.A is fairly rare as the mainstream is heavy american food with poorle qualified service or very sophisticated and expensive restaurants with a total lack of culinary creativity .... And what about Hatfields ? The Ups : The food... More

Always exceptional food and service. Croque Madame and Date and Mint Crusted Lamb are not to be missed. Our server knew just when to interrupt the conversation, and in fact, hung back and waited until we finished talking to check in with us. When my wife was deliberating between two desserts, our server gave his advice between the two, and... More

We got to the restaurant at 6pm on a Sunday and had super attention and service from our extremely knowledgeable waiter. He could advise expertly on both the wine choices as well as the menu choices. The seared diver scallops appetizer was succulent and beautifully finished. The date and minted crusted lamb chops were perfectly balanced. The mint was just... More

The food here was great. We got the tasting menu and felt we received a lot of food for our money; however, the service was a little inattentive. The server only came around to ask us if we wanted to buy more beverages. :)

The kitchen is transparent to the restaurant with opening doors inside dining room. You will feel the bad smell and tear every time the doors will open for serving goods. Real disappointment of food. Beef served cold and tasteless. Service was bad . You have to run after waiters to order something. if you are looking for something really good... More

I recently ate here for a business dinner that I was hosting. The restaurant was very understanding about our (traffic-caused) delayed arrival. Our server was outstanding. He was extremely helpful with menu and wine suggestions and very knowledgeable about them, too. His service was attentive without being obnoxious. The meal was one of the very best I've ever had. I... More

Visited Hatfields for a dinner party in one of their private rooms and had an awesome time. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and professional. The food here is definitely Michelin star quality, the most memorable dish has to be the 36hr braised short rib, it literally melts in your mouth, I didn't know it was possible to make short...

We were early birds at Hatfield's arriving at 5.30 pm on a Saturday night. The dining room is bright and airy, and we sat at a booth with a great view of the kitchen. Everything about this meal was perfect; the food is amazing with great flavor combinations, service is friendly and efficient, excellent wine list with some unfamiliar (at... More
