“Fancy Creative Food!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Have been visiting here since 2011.
I love this place even though the portion is very tiny tiny....but it's worth coming here with friends!

The food and the drinks are very creative here. One of the few outlet that has gastronomic cocktails...that actually tastes good!!

It's a popular place to hangout in the evening, on the weekends, so ofcourse it's noisy and crowded... but if you want to enjoy this place you can try out in the afternoon as well.
Their high tea is good as well.
Here...you pay for the atmosphere and their creativeness! because everything here is fancy. from the decor to the food :)

“Amazing in every way”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We came for our daughter in law's 30th birthday dinner- four serious "foodies" and a month-old baby in a stroller. The food was indescribably delicious, and beautifully presented. Every bite was a revelation. The service was friendly but supremely professional.The high-style decor was a blast, and made the occasion extra festive. Yeah, it's loud-- but it covered up a few fussy baby moments very sucessfully! We particularly loved the way the incredible desserts are served in another part of the restaurant. And the cocktails!! Don't miss splurging on one of the amazingly weird and wonderful ones!

“Stunning food in a stunning location!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I absolutely LOVED this restaurant!! We had the tasting menu, and every single course was beautiful!! The restaurant gets very busy, and therefore noisy, and the restaurant/hotel is very trendy, so maybe it's not for everyone, but I absolutely would go back and would recommend it in a heartbeat!

“Who wants a friendly restaurant?”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

This was our last restaurant to try on a recent weekend trip to Los Angeles. So we were comparing Bazaar to other restaurants in the same area like STK, Bagatelle, and SUR. The restaurant was very LOUD, which we don't mind. Just means there are lots of people with lots to say. They always say First Impressions are the most important. When we checked in with the Hostess, we were a full hour early as we wanted to enjoy the bar first. Our usual thing is sit side by side as my wife and I feel this is always more romantic and easier to people watch and talk without yelling across the table. Our hostess just said "We don't do that here. All the tables for two must sit across from each other." To which my usual reply to any restaurant that has said that to us in the past (Maybe two that I can remember) "Well, that won't work for us".

So, we found our way to the bar. There were plenty of open seats at the very long communal table. After about 10 minutes of neglect from any bar server, I approached the bartenders where I noticed nobody was standing. I was politely told that they couldn't take my order, it had to be through one of the servers and he would send one over promptly. Another 10 minutes went by before a server did come to see what she could do for us. She casually complained to us that the German group next to us was harassing her. We didn't observe anything like that but figured she was overworked and underpaid at least in her own humble opinion. The drinks were ok and expensive but you should expect that at this caliber of a restaurant. Since were side by side at the bar, we chose to order food and stay there. No complaints with the food we ordered off of the bar menu. Will we go back? Not likely. We received much better service at STK, SUR, and Bagatelle. Too many other fine restaurants to try in this area also.

“Truly an wonderful experience...”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

The Bazaar is truly a experience in every way, including the food, ambience, and service. Of course I was fortunate to be a "special guest" as my friend and I were doing and advance test of the food for an event. The executive chef recommended courses for us to try and took care of us in every way. The best way I can explain it is that the food popped with flavor! Their special drink mixology is amazing as well. It is an upscale and trendy place for that special occasion.
