“Think we were unlucky, great atmosphere, food not so good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Was really looking forward to dinner at Pace, had been recommended and was glad to have got a table reservation. On arrival the small restaurant was almost full already with people waiting for tables in the entrance area, it had a good buzzy atmosphere. The food disappointed though, and perhaps I chose badly - I had rigatoni with a tomato & italian sausage sauce. When served, the sauce was hot but the pasta cold (I know restaurants have the pasta pre-cooked then quickly reheat to serve with the sauce, but clearly this pasta had not seen boiling water in some time). It was sent back, and a new dish arrived in good time. However, it just didn't taste that good unfortunately, very bland and uninspiring. My starter was pretty ordinary too. Overall not a good meal, but others in the restaurant seemed to be really enjoying it so think I was unlucky. As a result, I would go again if asked, but wouldn't recommend to a friend.

“Fantastic food, impecable service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

My friend, who is a local LA resident, recommended this place and we never would have found it if we were just driving around looking for a place to eat. I ate here twice in 4 days and both times the food and service were fantastic. The first time I had a pasta dish made with butternut squash and mustard greens. To die for. The second time I had the cedar plank salmon. Again, to die for. The chocolate cake, which we had to order with our meals, was light and incredibly rich. I cannot recommend this place enough. Our glasses always had water, we were treated like VIPs, the atmosphere is great. It's a dark restaurant, eclectic decor, and a great soundtrack was playing both times I visited. Bonus: The first night I was seated at the next table over from Meryl Streep. And the second bonus is that the house right across from the restaurant is Jim Morrison's old house. I am from the East so I don't know when I'll be back, but I'll never forget Pace!

“Unexpected great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

My boyfriend took me there 2 weeks ago on a Sat night for dinner. Had a special crab salad with green goddess dressing- so good. Their bread is also quite good. I had their cedar plank salmon and that was the best salmon I have had in a long time. Excellent waitress and overall service. My water glass was always full and plates cleared promptly. I will definitely go back. Only downside is their locale and parking.

“Such a cool vibe and outstanding food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We started going here a few months ago and it is not one of our standbys. I'm sure there are other places like this in LA but I've not been to a more relaxed, bohemian, just plain cool place...and they "bring it" on the food. Also the wine pricing is pretty good too.
