Osteria Mozza gets lots of good comments so we decided to try it. The service was really good, just as the cocktails. We took the calamari as a starter and 2 pastas (agnolotti and pasta with duck ragu). Both were delicious. We look forward to our entrees, but they were disappointing. My wife's fish was completely overcooked. I went for... More

Food was amazing!! Service was impeccable. Dessert was absolutely delicious. They keep topping up your bread. The waiters know the menu very well and will make good suggestions. Share some appetizers so you can sample and good range.

My husband and I were part of a group gathering to honor a friend. We'd heard all the hype and been to the restaurant once before. While we weren't big fans, we were up for going and looking forward to it. Now -- we're just done. It was all about the service -- or lack thereof. The Actor-cum-Waiter with attitude... More

My team took a client here to dinner, and it certainly was impressive. The restaurant is very opulent, although cramped, with a bar that reminded me off a classed up version of a Sandra Lee tablescape. We started off with a bottle of wine that was presented and poured in a very flamboyant manner and were each given one piece... More

It is expensive but that is the case with many established rooms in this market. Once you get over the shock, settle down and start with a spectacular cocktail. I was surprised that the vodka choices were limited however they were on point with the mixture. We also started with a bottle of wonderful red that was a bit costly... More

I have heard a lot of hype about this restaurant, and overall it was very good, but it did not live up to my expectations. Unfortunately, we did have a later reservations but they were out of three dishes already so my advice would be to dine early. The restaurant tries to pack people in as well so I could... More

Plates are small. $10 to park. On the plus side, the homemade pastas are very very good. We all extremely enjoyed our meals. We had two or three course each. Do not go here if you are not prepared to drop some major $.

This restaurant has a lot of energy, which is great if you enjoy shouting at your dinner companions. Luckily for us, they put us in the quieter back room. The service was adequate, but the wine and spirit collection was too esoteric and expensive for our tastes. The menu was somewhat limited. I opted for the salmon/trout which was tasty... More

When my wife booked a reservation here, I figured it was going to be just another over-hyped "I'm too sexy for my shirt" LA restaurant with a lot of attitude and little ability to deliver. Boy was I wrong! The food was really outstanding--and as a native -born Italian that is high praise indeed. The portions, especially of the pasta... More
