One of the best and most original upscale L.A. dining experiences I've had in a long time.
Three caveats: 1.The place is unusually loud, especially considering that it doesn't appear there's that many patrons actually carrying on conversations; it's the acoustics and the noise from the open kitchen. 2. Portions are not just small, they are tiny. So, be prepared to order at least four dishes per person, if you come hungry. Expect to spend $50-75 or so per person, depending upon what and how much you drink.3. We found our service to be pretty attentive, but not as knowledgeable about the menu as we would have liked. It's unique and lengthy list of dishes; we did all right, but could have used a bit more guidance.
The biggest drawback is the noise level. At a place like AFrame, its cacophonous, but you go there for a cheap, and fairly quick meal. When I spend a few hundred dollars for six people, I generally want to have a bit more relaxed dining experience.
