Very nice small restaurant where every one is always feels like an important guest. Great service and the most juicy and tender chicken I have ever had. Everything is tasty there and they have gluten free meal that is also very good. And above everything,...the prices are really low for LA. Great people and vert good food, and very quick serviceMore

Extensive menu with emphasis on middle eastern cuisine. Everything fresh, well prepared and presented, and not at all disappointing when you taste. Can't wait to return. Saturday night and place was busy inside and out on the patio. If you have to wait, its well...worth it.More

A great and varied menu proves that you can not do justice to the many items and the importance of concentrating on what you do best.. I shared a Caesar salad that was most generous however the dressing lacked the taste of a good Caesar....croutons...were too small/ The Organic Field Green salad was most generous and looked very good.....dressing did not do justice to the salad. Bolognese....pasta overcooked and Meat Sauce itself was fairly good. My wife did not enjoy her Chardonay Pasta. Entrees were generous enough to share so that is all the four of us had. Service was very accommodating. Flat bread served with seasoned oil on the side was average. A 14% tip is added and we added a bit to that.....so that our per couple cost was $34. Truly a bargain IF the product was improved. There was a large party that was loud and detracted from our enjoyment.More

Enjoyed a leisurely dinner which was thoughtfully presented as our table of 5 wanted to share. We ordered an appetizer platter and two orders of salmon...plenty of food, attractively displayed for us to share and enough to eat. Salmon was OK as was the accompanying...vegetables and rice. Pleasant, not rushed.More

We dine here frequently when we are on the west coast. The food is really good and healthy. The tipping policy is not. It is automatically added to the bill. Even for a party of two. Even if you are not happy with the service....I get it when there is a large party...most restaurants add service charge/tip for larger parties. A real turn-off.More

If your in the mood for light Mediterranean then this is it, Green Cottage has really fresh and light lunch and dinner options that are simply delicious. I love the shish kebab, chicken kebab, and koobideh very tasty and seasoned just right. I am also...infatuated with the green mint lemonade it's so delicous I alwasy get it when I stop in. It's a little expensive but worth it!More

Been to this restaurant several times. Food was good. But I wasn't paying. Glancing as others paid, thought it seemed a bit expensive. Other night, I got the bill. I totally understood! They add a tip of 18% to every bill....but then give you a...credit card receipt to sign that both has a tip line...and tells you how much a tip of 15-18-20% would be!!!! So without thinking about it much....you tip on top of the dinner, plus the service fee you were already charged!!! I don't recall there being any disclosure of that tipping policy on the menu. It's really NOT the custom in this area...or LA whatsoever. It's just a scam. Ruined the whole restaurant for me!More

The menu at this restaurant is large and varied. The chicken is seasoned well and not dry. Their rice is delicious. It is a small restaurant that seems family owned and the staff is very nice.

The four of us shared one salad, one eggplant with pita, one BBQ pizza and one vegetarian pizza. All items were good, but not outstanding. However, for ease of access from the Laemmle Theater, good service and excellent value.......this is a good choice.

I've been here twice. The first time I thought it was an anomaly. The food was so fresh and tasty I was astounded. I ordered the saffron chicken which was surrounded by an array of salad, vegetables which were grilled and rice. But just saying...that understates the panopoly of colors and flavors. One friend ordered lamb chops, the other salmon. One had wanted to order pizza...but we talked him out of it since the meals looked so incredible! Our normally talkative trio was restricted to uttering oohs and aaahs! The prices are so reasonable - including our bottle of wine, two coffees and one dessert - a dense chocolate cake shared by we three, we got out for $125... check this place out. But reserve or come early...the place is tiny and fills up fast!More
