We attended an event at the panorama and were looking for a nice place to get a bite afterwards. I am so glad that this was just across the street. We shared four plates that were super delicious. I love the atmosphere and some of the unique programs such as the open bar for $20 for 90 minutes. The staff... More

Was sadly disappointed by this place. Came for DineLA restaurant week and the menu looked great. Had rave reviews from coworkers and as the only DineLA menu with an open bar, we were excited. This bar is in a crappy location and doesn't fit with its surroundings at all. I wouldn't come back based on the area alone. The space... More

This place started off as a tiny place but has since grown a little bit. Still small and intimate, this place offers different but not pretentious food at a decent value. It's frequented by USC students, but they have a good mix of people. Parking is hard to find at times, but worth a short walk if you do park... More

This is not for "adults" but more of the classic college drinking establishment and looks nothing like the picture on tripadvisor. Very cave like with large bench tables of students and a few smaller tables. Cheap sangria $14 pitcher. Food is Spanish inspired ( although they say ciccetti) but not memorable and plates can be very small. We had 6... More

Was looking for breakfast near USC, and wanted to try something different in the area. It was Sunday, so nothing better than brunch on a Sunday. Logistically it is pretty tough to park so either share a rider over, or plan to park several blocks away. A sorority booked the big table, so the only thing left were side seats... More

Had to wait soo long on a Tuesday night approx 1.5hours to get seated. The servers messed up the orders as well so we got some free food. Extremely expensive for very small portions of food. The in house sangria is great! They should expand to cater to the vast population of USC.

Bacaro is one of my favorite restaurants around the USC area. It's a great place to come with some friends. I like the atmosphere, their prices are amazing (especially during happy hour), and the food is delicious. They serve tapas-style dishes which are $7 each if you get 3, or $5 each during happy hour. One of my favorites is... More

I eat/drink here with friends all the time. Almost on the food on the menu is great, especially the grilled chicken breast. They've also recently opened up for brunch. Yummy food and great prices on drinks. The $20 all-you-drink deal is awesome.
