    The Amanda is tart and spicy and a little herbaceous, and it’s one of those drinks where if you’re a craft cocktail snob and you don’t do vodka, order it and then see what you have to say about it. Read more

    Had the short rib - my mind is blown. Brussel sprouts were nice and tender and savory/sweet. The Artemis cocktail was a nice side kick to it all - perfectly sweet and refreshing!

    Hands down, a great neighborhood gem. The corn fritters app is a great starter. The burrata salad with cumin dressing is a must-have. Not the biggest fan of their oysters but they are $1 on Tues!

    The Ancho Reyes spicy mojito off menu is awesome. The tequila Ocho and Mandarine Napoleon margarita here is divine. Also strongly recommend the Atlantico Rum daiquiri, its a great way to start off!!

    Their burger was cooked to perfection! The Mac&cheese was also good especially combined with a flight of Whiskey. Through which you may find a new favourite!

    Loved this place. Great food, mood was super chill, drinks and service were impeccable. The Lentil soup is a must, trout was really good and the chicken was great. Really digging the branding too.

    Great for brunch - tons of options. Awesome fried chicken and waffles, smoked salmon, eggs Benedict and steak and eggs. Fresh pastries too! Make a reservation.

    Pie in a jar is not pie, no matter how many homemade Nilla Wafers are arranged around the top, no matter how artisanal the Mason jar may appear in the light cast by dim fruit-crate chandeliers. Read more

    Try the Amanda cocktail and the shrimp cakes! Also love the brick chicken. Great new neighborhood spot - one of the few places in LA where they always have room! Great bar!

    Waited a very long time for service. Finished the app before receiving the first drink. Despite the ridiculously long delays the food was delicious. Def try the short ribs! Yummy! Jesse was nice.

    Lots of outdoor seating and great food and drinks. They boast the best chicken sandwich in LA. Not true, probably the 2nd best I've had so still worth it.

    Their pulled pork sandwich was on point; their fries -- crispy and delicious. Legit menu for drink selection too. Had the apricot fruit and vodka soda -- yumms

    Food is terrific here. I recommend the short ribs special (if available). Ask to have the scallops "nicely seared". And anything with rye whiskey rocks!

    This place has a great vibe and awesome comfort food. The sweet potatoes are tasty, and I haven't had a cocktail I didn't enjoy.

    Interesting. The oysters were exquisit but go on Tues when they're $1.50 a piece. The hamburgers really tried but fell slightly short. I'd like to try the BBQ & the brunch.

    $1 oysters and $5 dollar beers on Tuesdays. Need I say more? Yes, try the braised porkbelly and scallop with leek and the Mac n cheese.

    The oysters were great, good beers, but the food (brick chicken) was a bit salty-otherwise still super good and delicious. Definitely going back.

    Happy hour and Sunday specials go-to place in Los Feliz. Valet parking is a plus. And all with a Cajun accent.

    The tuna tartar was tasty, and the oysters were good. Everything is pricey, so don't expect a great deal outside of happy hour.

    Oysters. Short rib. Steak. And some mean cocktails. Gamble on the bartenders choice. Fun and satisfying.

    Split the Texan smoked brisket with the lady and had the double IPA. I like the feel of this place and it's good to have this option in Los Feliz.

    Jesse was nice. Food was mediocre. Overcooked salmon w bland lentils. Ok scallops w over salted gnocchi. Tasteless cheddar grits. Great balsamic greens. All wine glasses smelled strong of dish soap
