Evening to celebrate a milestone for a project with my client and their partner. For service, I recommend Raj. The decor is unique with different/separate ares for all courses of the meal.

Stupidly delayed for a reservation. Very mediocre (at best!) food at $150 a head. Ugh. Pretty rocking bar scene so just go there for a cocktail or two would be my advice .

Exceptional food, especially the vegetarian stuff. Service was really good too, our server Olivia was friendly, knowledgeable about the food and willing to go out of her way for special requests. This place is now on my must-do list when I come back to LA

We had our doubts at first. Thinking perhaps that the restaurant's reputation was overinflated and overhyped, that in person, it would be a let down. But as soon as we entered the place, we quickly set aside those doubts, because it was a real value for money! The entire dining experience was entertaining from the striking decor by Philippe Starck... More

I've eaten here more than 5 times over the last couple of months and my takeaway is that, on the whole, it's definitely one to miss. To be clear, some dishes are tasty - predominantly the traditional tapas, but some of the new style dishes too. The foie gras in brioche and lollipops are great; the dashi noodles were tasty;...

We were hesitant to come here due to its "trendier than thou" atmosphere, but the food and service made us believers. We ordered about a dozen small plates between the four of us. While all were excellent, some were downright outstanding. The tomatoes caprese was like no tomatoes caprese I've ever had; classic Italian meets molecular gastronomy. The grilled octopus... More

Trendy still with a mix crowd looking for a hipster experience which we are not. The bites were will prepared like the Hicama dumplings and King Crab Rolls but quite expensive as about $5 a bite. Drinks are $20 with premium brands and be careful of their signature drinks as some of the infusions with sugar/fruit may not mix well... More

I have been to several Jose Andres restaurants in Washington, DC, including the similar Jaleo, but Bazaar is the fanciest one at which I've dined. The restaurant has a very cool, ultra modern and very dark (it was hard to read the menu) interior. The drink menu included some amazing craft cocktails, bursting with various flavors and spices and spirits.... More

I love this restaurant! Unfortunately I don't live close. I have been here once before a few years back. The tapas are exquisite. The atmosphere is lively, unexpected and theatrical.
