Nice place in Whittier

My wife and I went there on a Saturday night without reservations. They got us in no problem. Great selection of beer (for a small place). Great selection on the dinner menu. I had the hanger steak which was very good. My wife had a NY Strip steak, also very good. The Chef also came out... read more

My husband and I have been to this restaurant when they first opened six years ago and was so impressed with the food, atmosphere we wanted to come back again, so when they had Five-Course wine dinner for only 75.00 pp we jumped at it and we are so glad we did, the presentation was excellent from the sales rep...

Online, it's encouraged to make a reservation. A reservation was made also indicating that we were celebrating a birthday. We arrive on time, there wasn't anyone at the podium to greet us, the BUS BOY sat us and never asked if we had a reservation and there were approximately (3) tables filled. Finally someone comes to our table, asks if... More

We were walking around looking for a restaurant to catch our interest for lunch on a Wednesday and Seta did. We were the first guests and were greeted promptly. Sat at a table by the window. Loved the décor and flow of the dining room. Our server was so very friendly and eager to please. He explained the specials and... More

A friend told me about Seta and I was excited to find a fine dining restaurant in Whittier. We walked in and the person at the reception desk was leaning on it . Didn't even bother to stand up before asking if we had reservations (we did). A second person walked up and asked again if we had reservations before... More

My wife and I have been to Seta a few times now and have had a great dining experience each time. It's a little tricky to get someone to answer the phone in the middle of the day to make reservations, but if you call when they open again for dinner you're in for a great dining experience right in...

Went with a few friends to dinner. I had been wanting to eat here for some time. We ordered the lobster meal. The food was ordinary from the appetizers to the dessert. Had a jalapeño margarita but was bland, no tangy flavor nor could you taste the jalapeño. It is also pricy and I wouldn't have minded if the food... More

We went for our anniversary. There was a party in the main dining room with a loud Mariachi band that played throughout our meal. The wine list is a joke. Of the red wines on the list, the restaurant only had two in stock. We ordered wine by the glass and the selection was pretty bad. My wife and I... More

Eat there often and everything is good. But the food from the grill is excellent. They have the best meat and fish dishes. The combination spices and herbs they use for sauces are like nothing you've tasted before. You won't regret eating there. And the "Blood Mary's" are to die for.

I frequent here when ever I am in the area. The food is great and the staff is very attentive. There is a strict dress code and is located in a nice area of historic uptown Whittier.
