“A Classic!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

Truly it is great. And it continues to be great. If you're from out of town...try it. If you live in LA..and have not been there, then "Get a Move On" and go. I'd love it if they'd come up with something fresh to lure me back....

“Our Fave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Although we have been to a ton of fancy places around the world, this is still our favorite place in town. It's not about the celebrity chef but the food. The best nights to visit are Market Wednesdays when the evening's ingredients are sourced from the morning visit to the farmer's market. If not, try Friday Night Flights. Small bites are paired with a flight of thematic wines. We drive up from behind the Orange Curtain for this food, and this is the place my husband chose for his fortieth birthday bash. They did a great job arranging a private room with an 8 course meal and accompanying wines, and the sommelier introduced every wine personally. The wine list and the cheese selections are the other reasons to visit. If you come early enough, valet park the car and make your breakfast purchase for the next day from LaBrea Bakery next door.

“Lost its way!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

On our previous visit we had a great dinner at Campanile - this time it was horrible. Everything was salty, salty, salty. We sent the pork chops back and they were just as salty the second time. If our waiter had bothered to check in with us (we never saw him from the time he took our order until he took the dessert order), we would have known that they were brined and we needed to order something different; we might also have been able to have a second glass of wine - we will never go back!

“VERY EXPENSIVE and NOT worth it !”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

Services was very slow for a group of 8....(Tip of 20% included...of course). The food is decent not terrific, restaurant atmosphere lacks a really authentic charm, wine list is excessively pricey and overall the food is VERY expensive. There are a lot better options in LA. The place is famous for a grilled cheese sandwich...figure it out. Will not return.
