While this place apparently requires reservations well in advance, we seemed to have gotten lucky. Our LA based friends managed to get us a table on a day's notice.
I found the staff extremely couteous. Los Angeles places tend to get a bit high on pretense, but the staff at this place has a warm, inviting vibe. Makes a foreigner feel at home.
As far as the good goes - I'd highly recommend the Flatiron Stake. Absolutely stunning.
All in all, I'd give this place a big thumbs up!
