If you didn't know it was there, you wouldn't know it was there! Papilles is a small restaurant in a strip mall at the foot of an on-ramp to the 101. The food is sublime - French inspired as the name suggests but using the best that California has to offer. Very casual and very good value.

We just enjoyed a wonderful dinner in the tiny bistro-like small mall location. The menu was limited to 3 extraordinary entrees and a few choices limited to salad or soup. We enjoyed delicious filets, excellent steelhead and moist pork. The squash soup was hot and flavorful. The fall salad was fresh with persimmons. I must recommend that you bring your... More

It is a small little place hidden in a small shopping center. The staff is very nice and the chef fulfilled every request we put on him. Reasonably priced.

PROs: The food: a very small (4 choices for appetizers, three for main course, two for dessert (cheese or something sweet) prix fixe menu ($35). Nothing exceptional but well prepared contemporary French bistronomy like, tasty, not run of the mill and arfully presented. The service: unintrusive, efficient. CONs: Money: At $35, the prix fixe menu is attractive, but $12-15 for... More

This restaurant, tucked away in a non-descript strip mall, has the finest French bistro food in the city. The meals are reasonable prixe fixe including a starter, entree and dessert. The selections are limited (menu changes almost daily so check their website for the menu) but always delicious and perfectly prepared. It is one of the best kept secrets in... More

This restaurant used to be prix fixe--$35 for three courses--which was more than reasonable. Their wine selection was very expensive, so we never got out for less than $100 per person, but still it felt like a bargain, and the food was great! Now, though, they are no longer prix fixe, so the price of the food went up 40%,... More

Very good food but over priced. The location and decoration is not so good, I call this Is a French/ USA " touche" not a French restaurant . No one is French there. If you drink wine ( as French do ) your bill is coming closer & around 100$ each ... Very Good food but nothing exceptional .( except... More

We loved this place. Great service, delicious food, and nice wines by the glass. We went on a Sunday evening and after experiencing it were baffled why the place wasn't packed. Perfect for a date, a dinner out with friends, or a family dinner. Highly recommended.

Ever since this tiny bistro received an excellent review in the LA Times, I've been a faithful diner. Yes, the location is off-putting. It's in a dingy mini-mall just off the Hollywood Freeway, across form a gas station. Even within the mall, it's in the darkest corner and one enters through an iron security door. However, once inside, you're in... More

This lovely little place is hidden in the corner of an otherwise undistinguished strip mall, almost under the freeway. We had called ahead, and they had a table for the three of us on 30 min notice on a Saturday night. We were welcomed in a manner that previewed the care taken with the entire meal. Delightfully casual, with the... More
