We loved this restaurant. We will definitely include it again on our next trip to LA.
The atmosphere is "Cottage Style" - classy, without being the least bit pretentious, and very comfortable. It was noisy, in the most joyous way - filled with chatter and laughter of people enjoying each other's company.
The food was excellent. Upon introducing himself and providing a review of appetizers, our waiter asked if we would each like a souffle for dessert. They actually bake the souffle's while you have your dinner, so they're served perfectly warm for dessert. I know they're fresh because we ordered a custom half chocolate / half grand marnier souffle.
Great appetizers - nice choice of wines - delicious, properly portioned entrees - and I can only recommend a souffle, so I did not see the dessert menu.
Our waiter was friendly - definitely not snooty or uppity - swift to serve, and paid close attention to small details such as timely refills of our dessert coffee.
This is not a "romantic dinner for two" restaurant. It is, however, a happy, chatty, delicious, memorable experience.
I will also add that as busy as they were, we never felt "rushed" - we had plenty of time to enjoy all that they had to offer.
