    Highlights: foie gras waffle, lamb belly (MUST GET), egg yolk gnocchi, salt charcoal potato (surprisingly good), apple dessert. Skip the watermelon pretending to be a tomato.

    the charcoal potatoes are not worth the hype. oversalted and just not all that special

    Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio serves up delicious modern American cuisine. The scallops, octopus, and avocado toast with albacore are amazing! The staff is friendly and accommodating. Incredible!

    Everything here was amazing. The Cacio e Pepe will go down as a top 10 dish for me. The charcoal potatoes were rocking and the octopus with squid ink pasta shells rivaled the Cacio e Pepe.

    The oysters and beef tartar were amazing. But most of the menu is an acquired taste. Always good to try it at least once!

    Ink was an unforgettable experience: the service was a perfectly coordinated dance, the plates were a piece of art and the taste was beyond what my tastebuds have ever experienced! Must in LA.

    There are cocktails made from carrots, wines from regions you’ve never heard of and a general feeling that you’re here to experience newness and whimsy, so why not just go all in? Read more

    That the food might make you giggle becomes beside the point when you taste it — despite appearances, it’s engineered for taste above all else. Read more

    Mixed, super innovative/creative cooking. I remember a really good squid ink pasta with octopus. (from a friend)

    This place is a great introduction to molecular gastronomy without all of the pretension that usually comes with it. Just make sure your parents are footing the bill...

    Amazing presentations, but some of the flavors were surprisingly lacking. Not the beets tho - fantastic.

    Start with the gnocchi and then deconstructed desert is a must.

    Get a bunch of small plates and share. Beef tartar, little gems, oysters, scallops and apple desert are all a must!

    Order the small dishes and skip the big dishes so that you have more variety. I've discovered straw mushroom and it taste like meat. BTW service is excellent.

    Loud & trendy atmosphere. Come if you're looking to try new flavors. Winners: lollipop kale & pig ears, wagyu beef cheek, bone marrow polenta, gnocchi. Loser: beef taretare. I'd def return.

    First 2 times, it was great. The 3rd time though, everything was too salty. And this was the only time that I didn't see Voltaggio in the kitchen. Coincidence? My favorites: octopus & gnocchi.

    The egg yolk gnocchi was great, as was the lollipop kale. They use comically small beer glasses. This is a good restaurant with quite a unique menu.

    Interesting, experimental kitchen. The charcoal potatoes were fun to eat. Loved the fish dishes. My dining companions thought the beef cheeks were weird, and too rich

    The dishes are inventive and delicious, the vibe cool yet understated. Make sure to try the corn and the apple/burnt wood ice cream dessert!

    The apple desert was the winner, with the wood-smoke ice cream. The rest of the top chef winner's dishes were inventive and tasty, especially the "corn" with nori Doritos. Fancy cocktails, too.

    Menu changes constantly, from this menu my favorite orders were wild salmon, egg yolk gnocchi, corn & wagyu beef cheek. Skip the desserts, didn't like any of them. Rhubarb cream soda is very good.

    So many great small plates to try! The corn (corn, housemade doritos, nori, green onion) was a table favorite for sure!
