All-day Mediterranean fare in sunny digs
Mediterranean · East Hollywood · $$
This bright and minimalist Los Feliz spot from Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson (Madcapra) sports blond woods and white furniture, a semi-open kitchen and overall communal vibe. The California-centric, Mediterranean menus move from coffee, pastries and light fare in the mornings, to salads and sandwiches in the afternoons, and family-style share plates in the evenings; beer and wine offerings match the cuisine.

Great staff, very nice and helpful. Small portions and high prices leave a bit to be desired but as tasting plates where great. Super minimal interior that’s borders on bland but the good music and warm staff make up for it and give it some atmosphere. Can tend to seem a little “too cool for school”. Wish their were some affordable drink options. Even non-alcoholics seemed to start at $10.

The food at Kismet was fantastic. Which makes it such a shame that the staff were the rudest and most uninterested I’ve met in California. One waitress took our order after an inordinate amount of time with very little enthusiasm, while the second waitress was more than happy to take the table next to us’s order while essentially placing her behind on our plates. You’d think that they would be aware that their tables are that close to each other and maybe figure out that you can take an order without sitting in your customers’ brocoli toast? To top it all off, the rude waitress gladly informed us, upon putting the receipt on the table, that there was a 20% service charge so we didn’t need to worry about tipping! Being from the UK I gladly applaud a built in charge for service, but a 20% automatic one, which apparently means the staff are less than motivated to even crack a smile seems like more of an insult than a bonus. I really want to love Kismet because the food was so good, but I cannot recommend it to anyone because of this terrible experience. Please fix this and tell your staff that if they are getting 20% tips automatically, then maybe they should automatically be friendly and helpful. (Oh and that almond milk and fat free milk are not the same thing. Stock fat free milk. I realise that’s a whole extra bottle of milk but I’m sure you’ll manage to figure that one out.) Thanks.

This place is a fairly interesting taste buds opening experience. It reveals healthy food alternatives with the subtle spices of the Orient. I will be back!!!
