If you have a lot of $ and you need a fantastic dinner, this is the PLACE! I've had catering companies on both coasts. I've designed parties on Park Ave and Beverly Hills. I could never reproduce the food from here. Highly original, beautifully displayed and soooo delicious. Try it, you'll be very happy.!! The staff is so terrific, your every want is taken care of. On Mondays, they have a price fix menu,that is a bargain

I learned about Bazaar from friends who are foodies. we tried a dinner at another establishment and it was lackluster at best so we ended up your for another dinner.

Everything was beyond delicious and like magic. For example, the starter, Philly cheesesteak had a hollow piece of bread with mozzarella that was liquefied inside the meat melts in your mouth.

The rabbit, egg 63, and mushroom rice was beyond amazing and delicious. finally figures are, the coconut Island was yummy and you crack it with your spoon as it is infused with liquid nitrogen.

If felt like I was eating food prepared by Walter White from Breaking Bad turned gourmet chef! Highly recommended!

We went to this restaurant with no expectation and were pleasantly surprised. The food was unique and creative, nothing like we experienced before and we have been to a lot of nice restaurants over the years. The prices are not cheap. We were two non-drinking adults with two kids and the bill came to $220. The plates are tapa size and quite small. I don't recommend bringing kids because I think they would consider the food a bit too funky.

The decor is eclectic and fun. There is a section with a shop selling all sorts of expensive eye candies you can browse while waiting for your food. The desert bar is also located there. They serve a wide variety of candies, pastries, cakes and so on.

The service is good. Our waiter is polite, pleasant, attentive, and he gives helpful information about the city of LA.

This is more a lobby bar than a proper restaurant. Cheesy atmosphere. Trendy guys taking their girlfriends out before a nightclub. Jamon was simply jamon, cheese was plain cheese, even desserts did not save the evening. Only sangria with sparkling wine was a surprise

My wife took me here for my 30th birthday. We had a great experience, if you want a privacy I suggest you do their round table experience. We had our own section in the backroom, and a 21 course meal. 21 courses consist of small plates, soups, champagne with fake caviar which was unforgettable and desserts. The check came and I didn't expect the bill to be so much but it definitely was an experience. Bucket list experience if I may say. At least if you enjoy quality food & service. I hope this helps.
