Dominique Ansel and his staff are doing some incredible things. My girlfriend and I are a fan of Dominique Ansel and were ecstatic to hear that he was opening a restaurant in Los Angeles. Having tried his pastries and reading his cookbooks, we can really stand behind his beliefs and were eager to try this place out. We ended up getting a seat at the Chef's table and it was quite the experience. Every dish left an impact. The kitchen staff was a treat to watch. You get party favors when you leave. What is there to not like about this place? Can't wait to visit LA and stop by this restaurant again. I'm in love with this place.

A wonderful experience at a hip and stylish bistro at The Grove. The interior design is quite exquisite with visual interests at all points; nothing is left unconsideres. The food is served tapas style, hence it is intended to be shared. All of the dishes were beautifully prepared; however they were a tad overseasoned for my liking. Free bag of housemade granola is given to patrons as a token of thanks. Sweet!

Always loved Dominique Ansel Bakery so it's nice to see a sit-down offering from him. Tons of unique items on the dinner menu (like squid corndog & the best fish and chips I've ever had) but a couple of dishes didn't shine (pasta was made in-house but everything on it was bland sadly). Def recommend but would say skip dessert menu and just head downstairs for your choice of cronut or other pastry delight from DAB. Service was perf and space is beautiful. Cocktails great too!
