Went last night after being told this was the place to go in LA. From the UK and used to dining at beautiful places.
The welcome was terrible once we went upstairs. We were left standing not knowing what to do, where to go whilst a woman tapped away on a PC screen for literally 15 minutes! Didn’t even acknowledge us. Then told to get a drink at the bar, no apology that our table was late. By this point we just wanted to be seated at our table with bottles of wine not presented with the bar. There needs to be a better welcome guys! The guy downstairs was nice, girls upstairs were moody and unfriendly.
They then sat us at a tiny half-table. We barely had room for 2-3 plates. They did move us to a better table eventually though and that woman who moved us was lovely. The room was also freezing, so many girls sat with jackets and coats on with fans blasting. It made us reallly tired.
On the plus - Food was beautiful but we were recommended far too much/many dishes. Over-ordered! Our waiter was great though, incredibly informative and professional. I guess he has to up and over-sell!
Overall, very expensive for what it is. $490 dollars for 4 people with only 2 bottles of house wine.
BUT food was great overall hence the 4 stars. Should score lower but just cannot, the setting was stunning too.
Bao buns the best thing on the menu!
