We enjoyed an early Saturday dinner at Papilles - the restaurant is located in the same strip mall as a donut and Thai restaurant; I wouldn't have found the bistro if not for its billboard sign touting the restaurant as the best hidden gem in Hollywood. As others have mentioned the food did not disappoint. We enjoyed a ceviche starter... More

amazing dinner in a very small restaurant. they are fantastic about managing people who have reservations - you never have to wait or you wait a total of 5 mins. The food is delicious and cooked in front of you. Wine selection is fantastic. It reminds me of a restaurant in NYC - very cozy and close to neighbors, but... More

I am hesitant to let you in on this scret place only because once the word is out , things will change. Located in a TINY strip mall, with a donut shop, liquor store and cleaners. Very limited parking. They menu is fixed priced 3 course at $37 !! There are suppliment for some items ranging from $5-40. The choices... More

Who would expect a really excellent restaurant in a LA strip mall? But Papilles is a gem: reasonable prices, excellent service (the wait and the chef worked really hard to deal with wife's lactose intolerance !) and delicious food. The wines are pricey, but as always, good beers provide an excellent alternative. It doesn't seem that this praise is needed... More

Just visited Papilles again this weekend. This restaurant consistently delivers one of the best meals you can find in town (not even considering the price). Wine pairings have always been on point here as well. Menu is prix fixe, but you can't go wrong with any of the offerings. We have brought or directed several friends to the restaurant as... More

This little French Bistro is hidden in the very corner of a small strip mall where you would not expect to find such a delicious little gem. Their menu is prix fixe however you can order a la carte off of the prix fixe menu. The food is outstanding as is the service. We will definitely go back!

I was there with my family last week. Its a small Bistro, with a small but great menu. Basically we chose between 3 categories for the main entree: Fish, Fowl, Meat. I can't tell you how fantastic the food was. My daughter took us there, she is a foodie, and she was dead on. The meal was coupled with great... More

I wish I had found this place sooner. Tucked into the corner of a nondescript strip mall off the 101 is this amazing french bistro. The open kitchen and close tables create a very intimate and Parisian atmosphere where the Chef looks over and makes sure that everything is prepared perfectly. Interacting with the customers while producing incredible food, my... More
