Really good local restaurant

I live in Whittier, CA where there are not a lot of good restaurants but this one is very nice. Not too small but not big either. Very good food and ambience with a nice bar and live music several days a week. Only a few miles from my house so we go there often. Wait staff is very friendly... read more

This chef always has prepared a good meal. Lunch is great with specials that provide customer with an opportunity to taste the food .

I dined here with a group of ten recently. The place was frustratingly out of over half of their drink menu. Apparently four days earlier they had a big party and hadn't received their replacement inventory. While disappointed this didn't deter from a fine dinner. The food was above average and the seafood enchilada in particular was superb. The portions... More

The food at the bar is off the chart. Great short rib tacos and the bartenders are great. We go at least once a week.

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

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 and takes to us... 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...
