Had dinner with a group of four on a recent Friday night. Much to our surprise there were tables empty and honoring our 7:30 reservation was not a problem. Was underwhelmed by the food. Branzino was unremarkable to me and the rock shrimp were soggy. The waiters were kindly but there was no follow through on our requests. I see... More

We have been here once before and loved it and decided to try it again. It was just as great as the last time! As usual, I tried one of their specials, a grilled Cajun Salmon, which was just spectacular! I have to say, one of the best grilled Salmons I have ever tasted! We were a large group of... More

I have been a patron of this restaurant and Primavera at the Wilshire hotel for for many years. I prefer this locations, because it is smaller and cozier. Seafood is GREAT, the rock shrimp fantastic and the veal dishes and second to none. On a weekly basis I dine with 6-8 golfing friends from a nearby country club and they... More

We came here for a birthday celebration with a group of 12 people and had a wonderful time! The food was delicious (very large proportions), and the service was excellent! I personally chose one of their "specials", the Sole Almondine. It was deliciously prepared and served perfectly over Angel Hair. A wonderful presentation! All of our group had a lovely... More

A quiet little table in the corner made for a romantic evening for two. The staff was very attentive. The menu had nice variety. The rock shrimp are fantastic as were the salad and pasta dishes. Would definitely return.

Ate at the bar. The staff pushed out the three customers staying in the hotel at 9:15PM and asked us to hurry up and leave because they had no other customers and wanted to get home at 9:50PM . To the Owner: Wonder why with great food and good location you have mediocre business? You have a horrible reputation with... More

We came here thinking this was all new now that it is affiliated with Primavera in the Wilshire Grand down the street. Having been to the previous restaurant, Reggiano's, that used to be in this location and being very annoyed and disappointed with them, we thought we would give La Primavera a try. We had made a reservation, and though... More

We had a great friendly service, and there was a large menu selection. Food was very good and plenty of it. I had the same meal at another restaurant the night before and it was a little better than here but I would not hesitate to come here again. Check it out!

This restaurant, to be clear, is not the same Primavera as at the Wilshire Grand. It is a stand alone place which has yet to be discovered, but it is also not inexpensive and may lose out for that reason. The bar is very good, the decor is pleasing and relaxing, but the food is the real winner. The mushroom... More
