They were so accommodating to me as a single diner and I sensed that from the confirmation call until I left the restaurant. Awesome environment. I had the heirloom tomato salad with compressed cucumber, so good. Berkshire pork,sesame roasted eggplant which were amazing together swiped in the pork au jus and the balsamic and sesame from the eggplant. Since I am gluten free they gave me an apple to go instead of granola. All good, no complains at all.

“Excellent Restaurant in every way - a Gem!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Our experience at Craft Restaurant in Los Angeles was excellent. This was one of the best top-notch restaurants we have dined at, anywhere in the U.S. Food is absolutely perfect, presentation creatively and wonderfully done. Portions very generous and well worth the expense, especially for a special occasion.

The wait staff operate as a team, and it really works. Service was awesome - consistent, knowledgeable and helpful, eager to please - but totally unobtrusive. Every dish we tried, from appetizers to entrees and deserts was amazing. We were a large group and everyone felt the same way. The atmosphere is very upscale without being imposing - and we could hear each other talk! Background music was low-key and added to the atmosphere. We would definitely return to Craft the next time we are in Los Angeles. There is a lovely outdoor seating area as well, but we had a great table inside as it was somewhat cool that evening. A true dining gem created a wonderful evening for us. Thank you to the greeters, the chefs and the charming, helpful wait staff.

Craft has got it down with every detail. The staff here work together seamlessly. Ambiance is upscale "chill" . The vast menu made it difficult to choose but we loved everything we ordered.If you like octopus, get that first course- it's to die for. Save room for dessert if you can, just saying! The service is constant, but unobtrusive. Great vibe throughout the restaurant. We will definitely be back.

“A delicious meal and the best bread I've ever tasted”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

A highlight is the special pumpernickel anise bread they have specially baked for Craft from La Brea bakery. It's just one touch that sets this restaurant apart from the others. There is special attention to detail in every dish.

“Run (or Drive--It's LA), Don't Walk--to Craft!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Craft recently. We had enjoyed a meal at their sister restaurant in NYC--Colicchio and Sons, and Craft did not disappoint. Our hotel concierge made the reservation (recommended), and we were greeted with a complementary Prosecco at his request. The setting is open an airy, with attractive appointments. The creative wine list was a plus. We enjoyed some a nice amuse bouche, and then tasty oysters (the Rhode Islands were the best). Seared scallops and duck breast followed with gusto. The server was excellent. We had no room for dessert, but they gave us two delicious muffins to take home (a Colicchio tradition). Please enjoy!
