Must eat: calamari salad & avocado fried rice!
try the lobster mashed potatoes!. OMG! you must try the lobster mashed potatoes. this alone is worth a visit. a couple things to know: 1) they are the best thing on the menu, hands down. 2) prices are very high and meant for sharing. 3) food is very "tasty," i.e. not gastronomic but more like strong flavors, which is not to say it's not good but just to say it's not authentic or anything. view is gorgeous. hotel is very boutiquey. servers are nice. the mojitos are great, but WAY too much ice. get a second glass for ice or you won't even be able to enjoy the drink before it melts.

Yummy Yum Yum. Dress up, hit the town and make sure you get the Avocado Fried Rice! :) You will love the views and setting of Asia de Cuba
Delicious fusion. Beautiful seating area and views. Went here with the wife during Dine LA. Tried their most popular dishes: Butterfish, calamari salad, some sort of chick pea dumpling and a donut-hole type dessert with dipping sauce. All very very good and you'll pay for it. Definitely worth trying once and a good spot for a special date. Getting window seating with a view might be a little tough but other seats still get you a decent view.
Excellent experience, but pricey.
We had reservations for 8:30 and called to say we are late- they saved our table for another 15 minutes and we arrived in the nick of time. We were seated on the patio next to the windows for beautiful LA views. The staff was friendly and the ambience was nice- good music in the background but not too loud.
The mojitos were fine, but nothing out of the ordinary. We ordered jumbo scallops to start and they were outstanding. We also ordered the duck, the pork roast and the butterfish with a side of plaintain rice w/guacamole. The food was delicious, albeit the pork and duck tasted a bit too fatty. Oh well, rich food for a reason sometimes. :-)
Our server was attentive and we enjoyed the evening. I don't usually go all out at pricey places, but it's great to treat yourself once in awhile.
Overall, and excellent experience and I may return one day.
Hottest Scene and Best Food in LA. This is hands down the best spot in LA full of gorgeous people and the best food. The calamari salad is exceptional as is the steak and fish. The drinks are unique and potent. The service is impeccable and the scene is all hollywood power players. This is the place to see and be scene.
Not that great. Horrible food and service. We had not been here for three years and had friends staying at the Mondrian so we figured it would be easy to eat downstairs. We had a lovely table on the patio but that was the only positive on the night. The food was truly gross. The ribs were rubbery, the calamari salad which I remember being exceptional was drenched in an absurd amount of dressing and the butterfish was cold. The $16 dollar drinks are also ridiculous. Too many better restaurants in LA to go to this dump.
RUDE, DIRTY & HORRIBLE SERVICE. The calamari salad is still excelent as is the butterfish but everything was unedible. The ribs were chewy, the tuna was way way too salty and the cold sake was room temperature. Our waitress was rude and was never around to order more drinks from and the manager was clueless. He came by and asked us how we enjoyed our meal before we had even been served any food yet. The place was great 10 years ago now it is living off its old reputation. The crowd was pretty trashy as well.
Lousy Experience. We went here on a Saturday with an 8pm reservation and had to wait over an hour until we were seated. The host was incredibly rude rather than apologetic. Once we were seated it took another 30 minutes to get our drinks and order and the waitress was missing throughout the meal. They have 4-5 managers who are just standing around like morons while we were sitting there with dirty plates for 20 minutes. Way too expensive for way too mediocore of an evening. Was great 5 years ago and had a beautiful crowd. The crowd is now trash and the restaurant is clearly living off its past luster.
for the butterfish, if nothing else..... Nice experience. I'm not sure the food was of a caliber I would expect at $100/pp, but it's pretty tasty. OMG, the butterfish = DELISH.
Servers are super friendly. The food was good for being fusion. Martinis were tasty. but their sushi sucks.....don't eat raw fish here. Other than that the service was good. After dinner we went to Skybar for a few minutes....this place is a so 3 years ago.....I wasn't thrilled....just a bunch of people trying to be cool. You can go to Asia De Cuba for the hip scene but I have had better food in less expensive places.
