Daisy Duke cute bartender who makes a mean mojito. (Best in LA!) Real food: satisfying, flavorful. Order the special! Friendly service. Welcoming atmosphere. Nice patio:great for parties. – Daisy Duke cute bartender makes a mean mojito. (Best in LA!) Real food (fried chicken, greens, banana cream pie) that is satisfying, flavorful with generous proportions. Home cooking with sass. Tip: Order the special! Friendly, attentive, very professional service from the bartender to the waiter. The well-mannered staff is cheerful and makes everyone feel genuinely welcome. Inviting patio: nice for parties. (It would be great to have some Brazilian music, or maybe Preservation Hall type jazz or Irish group on Friday night with space for dancing.) At Tart, you can talk with your date and actually hear what she is saying.
Pretty, Disappointing – Like a previous reviewer, I was surprised the place was mostly empty on a Friday night. There were only a few patrons and the staff seemed more interested in chatting with each other than serving us. We waited 15 minutes before they took our order, and then another 35 to get our meals, which were very simple entrees. We could have (and probably should have) made them in 5 minutes at home, and saved ourselves the $90. We had grilled salmon on a bed of raw spinach, and pan-fried chicken with grilled vegetables. Simple stuff, but completely botched at Tart. The chicken wasn't fully cooked. The vegetables were raw AND dry-- which suggests they'd been lying around in the fridge for a while. The wine was good but definitely poured short. During the time we'd waited, the kitchen could have easily saute'd the spinach, fully cooked the vegetables and chicken, and made it taste like something other than a thaw-out from CostCo. And we're not incredibly picky, either-- hey, we go to CostCo, right? But we're perfectly comfortable at A.O.C. and The Little Door. Sadly, while at Tart, we glanced wistfully across the street to Johnny Rocket's and realized we'd had better meals there. In spite of the lovely dining room-- Tart is well-designed and comfortable-- you have to look around and notice that Tart is, indeed, simply the restaurant tacked onto the Farmer's Daughter motel. Seriously. Never again.
Great Place – I really enjoyed my first experience at Tart last Saturday night. The food was absolutely amazing. From the BBQ chips to the California chicken sandwich, I was very impressed. The portion size was great, and I was able to get another side besides fries without any hassle. (corn was good too.) I did find it strange that it wasn't extremely crowded for a Saturday night, but I wasn't complaining. If I had to nitpick, the portion size of the calimari was a little light. Other than that, one of the best meals I've had out in awhile.
This ain't southern cookin' y'all – If you want good southern cuisine do not come to TART. My friends and I went there on a Saturday night and made reservations. When you show up and the restaurant is dead on a Saturday night in LA, that's not a good sign. We all opened up our menu's and were less than impressed. A bunch of mediocre salads and sandwiches, hardly any dinner options. I ordered two sides for dinner since nothing looked good to me. I got veggies and the "killer" mac n' cheese. Yes it's killer since it destroyed my taste buds. If you make Kraft macaroni and cheese and add some velveeta on it with a sprinkling of crackers that was basically it. Two friends got the burgers which they thought were all right and my boyfriend got the ravioli which was boring and flavorless. Their garnish was a bunch of cherry tomatoes...exciting. I am from NC and the best southern cooking I've found so far is at Zeke's BBQ, save your money for them instead, now they have the KILLER mac n' cheese!
I gave TART two stars because the service was good, but how awful would it be to have bad service when no one else is in the restaurant?
memories of my young days are back! – I am a traveller and an adventurer. till date ruby tuesday was the only place i enjoyed and now i have added one more place in my list, Tart which is located in Farmers daughters Motel. I enjoyed the place thorougly, being a new restaurant, i felt like i've been visiting this place forever. it reminds me of my old good days!
this place is holy good!!!!!!the bar is excellent.....and i enjoyed my American meal along with my drink.well i would tell you people out there, Check it out!!!!!!!!!!!
love Tart – As i live alone in this city, there is nothing i can enjoy after office hours. So reading keeps me busy. i was returning from Barnes and Noble book store and on my way the aroma caught me still. i parked my car and stepped straight in farmer Daughter motel. i was hooked to the aroma until i reached tart. a beautiful place and great food.
now i make it a point to visit this restaurant twice a week and to be honest i found friendly ppeople in their staff.
i am an ardent fan of the chef. you rock!
great burgers and excellent seating arrangement! – i was visiting my son who lives with my ex wife in this city. I was suppose to take him out for lunch.
I am new to the city hence used the city search site where people highly recommended a restaurant named TART. I took my son there for lunch and we had a great time. We were warmly welcomed, the ambiance was great, the desert plant in the planters was extremely artistic and the patio was such a tucked away place. i enjoyed the BBQ. platter with the view while my son enjoyed his mini burgers.
Tart rocks!!!!!!! the reviews helped me to select such a fine restaurant...2 thumbs up for this place!
looking for a home away from home – i was out with my boyfriend searching a good restuarant to have breakfast as we had planned to meet my parents for lunch. I missed the meals my mom prepared, the Breakfast, lunch dinner. we happen to notice Tart at farmers daughter motel.
When i entered the restuarant, the aroma took me back to my mom's kitchen. The typical wooden flooring, the patio and great seating arrangement , everything was up to the mark. I now won't miss my mom's kitchen i know.
thumbs up for this beautiful place. A must visit place.
A must go to if in L.A are – This play was a jaw dropper. The food , the style, the service, was all amazing. A must go to if in the l.a area. One of the things that stood out most to me was the style of this cute little resturaunt. American with a splash of style and the over all fell was just very relaxing. The variety of food , well the food in general was amazing. The service was top notch and when im in the L.A area in the near future you can expect me to visit there again.Highly reccomended.
great spot the food was awesome! – 3 of us skipped out of work at lunch for a bite yesterday at Tart and it was awesome. From the time we walked through the door till we left everything was right on target. The bartender was our waiter and he was kind and courteous at all times and did not rush us at all. Did I mention he makes a great mojito! 2 of us had the burger and fries and the 3rd with us had the grilled cheese. YUM! Everything tasted superb and the ambiance was just what we were looking for you could sit inside or on the patio. I would definitely recommend Tart for lunch any day over the other restaurants in the area. Keep it up!
