Description: Two simple wooden doors open up to quite a buzz in an otherwise romantic courtyard, where a colorful crowd hangs at the bar and lingers at coveted patio tables. Inside, seats spread throughout the candlelit house-turned-restaurant with intimate decor. Organic seasonal ingredients, creatively prepared and impeccably presented, characterize our unique menu.

The Little Door was as good as the last time we were there. The "French" Mediterranean food was excellent, especially the duck. Very nice wine selection. It has a pretty as well as slightly funky decor & multiple small rooms[seemed much quieter here] . The service was also good, but the noise in the open air part of the restaurant was WAY to loud!This was an area where it seemed to be mostly couples, we could see people straining to hear or shouting. { I know we had to] I would still recommend for a fun evening!

I have been living in Los Angeles for almost 7 years and have just recently moved the Mid-Wilshire area. I stumbled upon this restaurant and it has quickly become one of my favorites. The ambiance is second to none! You are eating in an indoor/outdoor type setting and you will as if you are in Hawaii or the Caribbean.

The food is even more of a surprise. There has been nothing on the menu that I have not enjoyed. They have a seasonal peach gazpacho that is quite honestly, the best that I have ever eaten! The pates are plentiful and their are even vegan/vegetarian options.

The service is professional and kind, but they give you space to enjoy your conversation. I highly recommend it, but you must look closely or you could miss it. The Little Door is almost hidden, but once you find it, you will be in for an amazing experience!

This is a great spot for breakfast or brunch. Food is very fresh and service is great. Also liked outdoor seating in the shade. Even though it was a very warm day the temperature under the awning was just right. I had a spinach goat cheese omelet and my husband had the Spanish frittata. Both very good. And the bread is WONDERFUL!!! Definitely recommend and will return.

This is a smart casual place frequented by locals in the arts and entertainment industry with a very friendly low key natural vibe. The food is solid and the over ambiance is great for feeling like being in nature right in LA - West Hollywood area.
