Wonderful service and presentation. – We had one evening in L.A.(live on Long Island) and wanted our restaurant experience to be the best possible. We had heard excellent things about LARCHMONT GRILL, and my wife and I went with our son and his partner, and our expectations were more than fulfilled. My shrimp pasta was superb, and a mac and cheese appetizer was richly delicious. Our meals were topped off with a shared pear tart that was a masterpiece in both taste and presentation. The service was flawless and the tone was relaxed and competent. We highly recommend the restaurant and will definitely return when next in Los Angeles.
A perfect fit every time – I have been several times, sometimes with the family, sometimes just with my husband, sometimes just the girlfriends, and in every circumstance this is the perfect fit. Great food quality, great choices, interesting selections, great service, the employees are just real, nice people. Tuesday is 1/2 price wine night! I have loved it every single time, and we eat out often, so we know good food. I read one review that labeled them expensive, I must say, that I find ithe prices very reasonable for the quality of food you are getting, so the other reviewer was either inexperienced or unrealistic as a diner. Absolutely a YES.
This cozy neighborhood bistro offers seasonal Pan-American cuisine, an interesting wine list and warm charm. – Nestled in an old house, sweeping front porch and all, this comfortable neighborhood nook was actually once called The House, when it was run by Chef Scooter Kanfer. In 2007, a pair of longtime friends took over the space, kept the name from the prior owners (which might have been a slight misstep, since it was widely panned under their reign) and created a workable restaurant concept. The menu is solid. Not every dish is a hit (the chicken panini and turkey sandwich are basic middle-of-the-road menu items), but the classic Italian panini offers cold cuts with just enough kick and hot peppers to top it off. A perfectly pan-roasted trout bathes in citrusy lemon caper sauce, complemented by fresh vegetables. The velvety Velveeta-blended mac and cheese is not to be missed--order it as an appetizer to share.
Very Cozy; like a friends home – This restaurant is truly darling. I have been three time and have been impressed each time. I am on a limited budget and am happy to tell you each time I have been to this restaurant I have enough leftovers for breakfast the next day. They are not only kind and accommodating they give so much food for each entree. I am on a limited budget and am proud to say that larchmont grill is in my neighborhood. I love how cozy and friendly the staff and owners are. They deserve a visit; but I don't want them to get too popular, I want to be able to get a table every week. Love this place!!!
Burger Night for the Vega-Mite! – WoW! I headed here to write a glowing review of my experience of the Larchmont Grill when I read another review that had just come in... I know who they were- I was seated right next to them!!! They wrote such a bad review and it just made me MAD! They made it seem like they knew so much about food and so shabbily cut down everything they ordered- Now it is time for all of us to laugh- The reason why I remember them is the decanted wine! The sweet waitress (she was ours too) was trying to decant the wine so it would not the dump the sediment into their glasses, and the guy said 'Oh it is ok we will drink the sediment- it wont hurt us!' What a moron- yeah that guy knows what is good!!! Unhappy people we thought and now we know for sure!
Anyways, enough of the bad vibes lets get to the goodness! I LOVE THE BURGER NIGHT AT THE LARCHMONT GRILL AND I AM A VEGETARIAN! They have such a great veggie burger- I was so excited at the new addition to the menu AND they have sweet potato fries- oh my lord I was in heaven! My husband had the Salmon burger and he was just thrilled too- juicy and huge and the home cut fries were just delish! Our waitress is a veg too and she suggested the tempura string beans to start with along with the Oven roasted beet Salad and when she said it was great she was not kidding! The tempura beans had a soy ginger and chipotle aioli dips and we just kept dipping! The beet salad had red and gold beets asparagus baby spinach AND pears- together they exploded with flavor. We also splurged on desert (don't judge, don't hate!) and the hot cherry pie was so very delicious, I cannot remember a better slice!
To top off the wonderful food (and great value!) the service was superb, our waitress was so sweet, thoughtful and attentive- her warmth was very real. The rest of the staff were also super friendly and courteous- they make coming to the grill like coming home. Try it out on Wednesday nights for burger night. even if you are a Vega-mite!
Best Filet Mignon I Have Had In A Long Time – Where do I begin? Must say this cute and cozy craftsman style eatery is on top of it's game. I was first greeted by Mark, the owner of this bungalow. He seated us quite quickly with a great smile and tasty items. Of course I went for the Filet and I'm so glad I did. It's so hard to find a really good steak in this city, well now I can stop looking. The steak was amazing!!!! It melted like butter in my mouth with so much zest and flavor. Mark recommended a wine that suited my order and my bf from one of there many, many choices. Thanks Mark for a wonderful meal that made our Valentines Day memorable, sorry it took a while for the review. I'll be back for lunch soon too.
Quaint setting – We went this past Sunday early @ 11:00am had reservations from open table. I ordered the French Toast & my 17 year daughter got the tradtional country breakfast. Beautiful atmosphere, music was at a level not to be distracting, cozy setting, modern features and excellent service from the gentleman (who I believe is the owner) at the front door, to the busser and wait staff. It was getting busy by the time around noon we left. The French Toast was light and fluffy, my decaf coffee strong with a good flavor, orange juice nice not to tart. My daughter enjoyed her breakfast but it was the basic eggs, bacon... nice tasting bacon, not to greasy, breakfast potatoes okay lightly seasoned not crispy enough on the outside for us but I think most would be happy with them.
Over all I will be back with friends there was a good varied selection on the menu so I look forward to discovering what else they do well. Seeing as I am in the Industry I tend to be picky but I heard from other tables around me that for the most part, these were frequent guests.
Good food & wine, nice atmosphere, good nightly specials – I took my boyfriend here for his b-day and we both loved it! Since moving to LA a little over a year ago and thoroughly enjoying the wide variety of ethnic food available, we have struggled to find a good bistro/American style restaurant. I think we might have found a new favorite. Larchmont Grill has something for everyone ? salads, vegetarian pastas, fish/seafood dishes, and lots of options for the carnivores. We had the crab cake appetizer ? it was one of the best I have had not in the state of Maryland. Radicchio salad was amazing ? the items selected for it were such a great compliment to one another ? manchango, fig, pecans. YUM! I had the grilled pork chop ? great flavor and sauce. BF had the grilled rac* of lamb, which was definitely the highlight of the meal. I am not usually a huge fan of lamb, but the lamb is what I would order on my next trip to Larchmont Grill. Even the sides were done very well. We had a bottle of NZ white and glass each of Paso Robles red. Both were very good. A little bonus ? they have nightly specials! Wed. night buy a bottle of wine (which we did) and your appetizer or desert is free! Tuesday was ? price wine, both by the bottle and glass. I don?t remember all of the other specials, but every night had one. The service was friendly; attentive without being annoying or overbearing ? the waitress always showed up at the table at just the right time, not too interruptive. My only regret ? we were too full for desert. I am sure it would have been tasty as well. The price was what I expected it to be. They also serve lunch and have weekend brunch. I think I might need to talk BF to going there for Easter Brunch. Although it won?t be difficult to get him back there at all. Valet parking, but we easily found free street parking just a block away (on side street off Melrose at strip mall just west of restaurant). Great place for a date. Indoor and outdoor seating available.
Awesome in every way – Best Sunday brunch in town...get the short rib hash...you will LOVE it!!!! Osso Bucco for dinner is awesome! Great wine and really nice manager! Go!
Short ribs and crab cakes are to die for! – I have reviewed many restaurants and can say I am very impressed with the selection and experience I had at this place. The service was great, easy enough to find parking, and we had the best food too! I highly recommend it if you are in the area!
