good food clean place – good food which was fresh and healthy. the place is very clean and the staff are very helpful and pleasant.
great food and ambiance with fresh ingridients. Me and my family alway enjoy going there and have never been dissatisfied with our experience.
Not exactly what we had in mind! – Anyone who has anything to do with preparing and serving food in the UK takes great heed of the words of the restaurant critic A A Gill in the Sunday Times. "Good food with bad service presents itself as bad food"
Such an epithet can surely be placed fairly and squarely on the shoulders of the proprietors of Shilo's
We arrived six handed without a reservation (not a great idea) , to be told that they could accommodate us but it would be 30 minutes wait. Fair enough. 60 minutes later and counting we were "fortunate" enough to be led to a large table for 8. Only to be led back to the waiting area, as there was some confusion about whether the table was already taken or not.
We finally sat down and was greeted by, well, nothing. A waiter en passant said that they were very busy and that he would give us his full attention in 10 seconds. I think he meant 10 minutes but I wasn't in the mood to argue, and I don't think he was either.
When he eventually did arrive there was no explanation of the dishes on the menu just what was off the menu. Sort of Faulty Towers "the veals off' moment, without the comedic genius of John Cleese. Just substitute chicken for veal and you get the scenario. A kosher eatery with no chicken equates to a Starbucks without coffee!
We all agreed on something simple to eat with the exception of one member who ordered a plain Kobe burger, stipulating plain,plain and even plainer.
You guessed it, it came with all the trimmings. Waiter to diner "well we are busy,we are trying our best" obviously not at listening. It did eventually arrive plain adorned with a miserable smirk from the messenger.
All food tasted fabulous but not sure what the 6 condiments, placed before us in little dishes were, I suppose it would have been nice to know, but that's a bit too much to ask at Shilo's.
To add insult to injury the table was cleared before one of the party had even finished eating, perhaps it's a French custom I have not come across before.
Forget the high price,forget the high quality steaks, forget the obligatory 18% service, forget even the lack of car parking space. Go there for one thing and one thing alone, to taste the heady mix of superb kosher food, repugnant service, and French indifference , that leads to an unforgettable evening for all the wrong reasons.
Great place! – Not sure what place cscmobileuser went to, but Shiloh's is a great restaurant. Every time I've been there my husband and I walk out so full and so pleased. It's always amazing to go to Shiloh's! The food is great and the waiter is always there to guide you in the right direction. They aim to please!
An Amazing Experience! – When it comes to fine kosher dining in Los Angeles, no one pulls it off quite like Shilo’s.
1. Service – I really feel welcome when I walk into Shilo’s, they always seem to go out of their way to satisfy each customer. From their pleasant mannerisms to their great advice regarding menu selections, they genuinely want to ensure I have the best dining experience possible.
2. Food – I honestly have never tasted food like the treats served up at Shilo’s. I especially like how the head chef comes up with creative ways to mimic “forbidden” food in a kosher way. Take the Bleu Cheese Burger for example – I HAVE SIMPLY NEVER TASTED A BURGER LIKE IT. Even the bun looks like it was created for this burger! Add a Kobe patty, fake bacon (or pastrami or whatever it was, IT WAS GOOD!!) and that amazing imitation Bleu cheese!
Dude, I can’t believe the bad press I’m seeing on here regarding that Bleu cheese. Do you folks react the same way when eating yogurt? Because it tastes sour? Or how about Swiss cheese? Come on people! It’s SUPPOSE to taste like that. It’s not for everyone! But coming on here and calling it “old and moldy” – please – it’s not even real cheese folks…I don’t think mold will ever be an issue.
I guess the point I’m trying to make is that it’s a kosher restaurant with an amazing head chef that designs his menu to offer unique tastes to the Jewish community.
3. Food – Sorry, I need to speak a bit more about the food. Head on over and get a Kobe steak (be sure to order it the way you like it done), you’ll thank me later!
4. Misc – I’ve gone to social gathering there and I’ve closed business deals there. The owners are always so warm and gracious. They make you want to come back – and I always do!!!
Great restaurant! – I went to this place a week ago with some friends and totally recommend it , they have a great variety of appetizers and I was amazed with the wonderful flavors; the service was fast and great. We were fortunate to have chef Katsuji coming to our table, he even explained the way the appetizers are made and I have so much respect for the creativity that chef has on putting all these amazing food together. Then the chef made us some ice cream from scratch right on our table that was quite an experience! We had an awesome time!!
great food, ..great ambiance..a great Chef – I loove this restaurant. If I was asked to go out for dinner, Shilos would definately be my first choice. Not only is the food soo tastey, you get great service!!! The ceviche is great , not only one type there are three different ones that iv'e tried and tested over and over again.The Baby back ribs and cowboy steak are soo tender. My hubby realy enjoys the blue cheese (parve) Burger, it is unlike any other burger youve ever tasted. The surf n' turf is something out or the ordinary as well, I would deffinatly recomend it. The Chef is amazing, he will go to table after table letting you test out his different, and new items that aren't listed on the menue. Ive been there over and over again, and have always been satisfied, overly satisfied!!. Not only have we gone out alone, we've gone out with freinds and my hubby and freinds even made me a surprise party there..It was wonderfull..Thanx Katuji!!!
Best Kosher restaurant in Los Angeles – I went to Shilohs for my girlfriend birthday and it was an amazing experience. First, we had really good original appetizers, the tarte flambee and the scallops, then my friend had the blue cheese filet and I had the cowboy steak ( i'm really a meat lover ;-) ). It was great for both of us, the addition of the blue cheese truly enhance the taste of the delicious filet and my cowboy steak was tender and very tasty. At the end, the waiter brought us a very good chocolate souffle with a candle singing happy birthday for my friend. I thought it was nice delicate touch.
Overall, I would recommend Shilohs to anybody who loves great food in a great ambiance.
Repulsive, Expensive, Expired Meat – The other day, me, my mother and my sister decided to try Shilo's. We ordered two hamburgers and a steak. The meat of the hamburger was smelly and tasted literally like trash. I couldn't eat it past the third bite! The check ended up to be $73, which is absolutely ridiculous! We took the food home and my dad happened to eat it too. He got food poisoning and was throwing up for an hour straight. As well as that, I got diarreha and my sister and mother got stomach aches. I will never ever go back to that place, not only because of the food but also the service. It took the waitor a long time to bring us our drinks and once he brought it there was a fly in my water! You may all think I'm joking but it really is the truth!
Love this place – I don't know what the person who wrote before was talking about, because my husband and I and all of our friends think Shilo's is amazing. The chief is always trying new and interesting dishes while keeping the favoriates around. I have enjoyed many of the steaks and would suggest the blue cheese (parve) steak or the archetta. Both are great! Also love the appetizers! The petite couisse and tarte flambe are definately worth trying. I have always enjoyed the civiche and if you want to try something really unique try the surf n' turf. We have always had excellent service as well. I can't say anything about the apple dessert but if you like bananas then definitely try the bananas foster. We have been going here for nearly 3 years and never had any kind of flies in the resturant, and we have been there at all times of the day, not just the evening when its dark or wtvr. To make a long story short, this really is an exceptional restaurant whether you keep kosher or not.
