great good food, excellent tremendous service, beautiful place, great live music, loved live jazz, great space, enjoy fabulous meal
I love that there's a classy jazz lounge that's not cheesy in LA. I feel like I'm traveling back to the 50's/60's. They have a great selection of great food and a theme almost every night depending on what type of jazz you like. This place is a hidden gem.
rare find for fantastic food, ambiance and jazz. I have driven past the beverly glenn strip mall for years and never knew that lodged in between the pet store and starbucks is a phenomenal dining experience. Took my hubby here for his bday and loved the food, ambiance and jazz. We started off with some sort of potato/smoked salmon concoction along and lollipop lamb chops. What can I say, wonderfully excellent! Next we went for the beet salad and butter salad, followed by new york strip, bone in (is there any other way?) and black cod. All was good, most was great. The ambiance is a swanky, perfectly lit, intimate, but still very airy vibe. Service was excellent and loved the jazz. Go here for special occasions or just because!
Romantic and good food.
If you are a Jazz lover, this is definitely the place for you.
Even you are not much of a Jazz or Classical music person, the food here is remarkable.
The crispy duck is awesome, the skin is crispy and the duck meat is very tender.
The Grilled filet mignon is also magnificant
lazy sevice, bad food and overpriced. One of the worst resturants I have ever been too. We had a reservation at 9:00 and just had to wait 40 minutes to order drinks and dinner. Well 90 minutes later we received our beet salad that was highly recommended which tasted like nothing. Literally it was one beet cut in 4 pieces. For dinner we had the filet which was one of the worst pieces of steak we had ever had. It was cold and way over cooked and tasted like a expensive frozen dinner. Anyways $700 later for a party of six for unedible food and terrible service this is not a place to recommend.
A hidden GEM!!!. Hidden away in the middle of bellaire, this l'il gem of a restaurant is a MUST try. The live jazz on the stage each and every night adds so much to the ambiance that you could literally just go there and order a bottle of wine, enjoy great conversations with your friend(s) and be able to thoroughly enjoy yourself. The acoustic of the restaurant is amazing and not overwhelming as in other places that you won't be able to hear your company. And that's just about the music. The food was amazing with a wide selection of wines and delicious dishes. Haven't had a single bad one yet. The wait staff is stupendous, welcoming and will help you pick out, if needed, what you will enjoy from appetizers to entrees to the right wine for your meal without the typical pretentiousness of LA. This is in fact where I proposed to fiancee and it's a definite gem. If you haven't been here, you will want to, I promise you.
Vibrato Vibrations!. My girlfriend and I went here as part of my birthday weekend. She surprised me with a place that I didn't even know about even though I pass it all the time. The food was great! I had chicken and potatoes. Somehow they put a terrific spin on this down home favorite. The drinks were pretty good as well and the Jazz was decent. The service was good and the ambiance was just as impressive as the food!
Best intimate steakhouse.... This is by far one of the best dinner experiences of my life. My husband and I had such a great time. Tim our waiter was the greatest. Patient and very helpful with the recommendations. My husband had the double cut lamb chops with the mint jelly. Wow!! what a combination. It explodes in your mouth. He truly enjoyed every piece. I had the Alaskan Halibut and it was delicious! We also enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine after our meal, which made the experience even better. We enjoyed the Jazz and stayed till closing time. And did I mention we saw quite a few celebrities? Parking was a breeze. We got lucky on finding a spot as the lot was full at around 9pm. The drive back home was amazing, as we drove back through Mulholland Drive and the views were spectacular! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great dinner experience.
Hidden Gem!. I've been trying to get to vibrato for months - and it was totally worth the wait! I fell in love instantly. Warm vibe, great service (at the bar and once we sat down for dinner) plus delicious food and a great wine list (especially if you like pinot). Kinda pricey, but well worth it. I dont know anywhere else you can listen to great music, have a great dinner and be treated like a super star. I'll be back soon!
Not Worth It.
The restaurant has an ambiance that makes you excited and gets you ready for a great night out. This place SHOULD be awesome!
We were greatly disappointed....
I believe our waiter was on something. He couldn't stand still while he was talking, and he grabbed my wine right before I took a drink, says "Whoa, I think it may be bad!" He puts his nose in my glass (literally) and says "Oh, no, nevermind, it's fine."
Speaking of which, the wine was Ravenswood, Merlot - Vibrato charged us almost $50 a bottle for this wine. A standard benchmark for wine mark-up is twice retail. I discovered at BevMo that Ravenswood retails for $8 a bottle!
The jazz stage is really awesome. We were all ready to hear someone really go at some Jazz... the Jazz was played by old white guys (this should have been our first warning) It sounded worse than elevator music and at a lighter tone than when you are on hold for a Sprint operator..
The menu was really not very exciting. A few things sounded OK... we got the dory and the veal marsala. The dory was not too bad, but not worth $30, and the veal was hanging half off my plate and was without a doubt a reheated, frozen dish. It tasted like a tough shoe! After only ordering a bottle of wine and two entres, the bill was about $170 and I had to go home and eat a bowl of cereal to fill up since my food was so bad.
So there you have it. I would love to see this place under new managment, a new chef and different music.
great food, nice wine list,. With a new chef on board, This place is better than ever. I've been eating Marc's food for a while. He's finally in an environment that will really show his skills. The wait staff are very attentive but not over the top. The food came out hot and timely and the wine service was spot on. The desserts were amazing. I had the Pana Cotta with poached pear in some kind of red wine reduction. Outstanding. We will be there many nights to follow. Bravo!
Vibrato Vibe was....
incredible! great place for jazz lovers & "lovers" just the same. very cozy.
MY FAVORITE DISH: POUNDED VEAL CHOP PARMIGIANA
Favorite New Place. Vibrato was absolutely amazing!! Its everything i image an old old super club to be. The music and ambiance were fantastic as was the food and service. The staff was attentive, accomodating and genuinly seemed to care - a rare treat these days!! The steaks were great but the scallops were as good as I've had anywhere. Vibrato should be on everyones list of restaurants to go to.
