Excellent Experience – Just called for a recommendation for a gift. Steve helped me pick out an awesome wine and even guided me through the shipping/delivery options so I ended up with the best deal. I was also able to preview my order and note before sending. FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE OVERALL. Plus, I had no idea K&L was in LA. (Thanks Citysearch!).
Love K&L!!!!!! – I love this place! The entire staff is super friendly, but not in-your-face. They really know their stuff and are not afraid to suggest wines that are in your price range, rather than pushing the more expensive ones just to make a big sale. Their Saturday tastings offer a huge spectrum of regions and varietals to really open your palate to new things. Wines are reasonably priced and their website is very user friendly. You can buy online and pick-up or ship! Awesome in every way!
Good selection but NOT the best prices – I live in Hollywood and was very happy when I find out K&L was moving into my neighborhood. I typically buy my wine in Marina Del Rey (LA Wine Company or Beverage Warehouse) or Orange (Wine Exchange). It was very nice to have such a well-reviewed store so close.
I finally got around to visiting and left the store somewhat disappointed. While the store is well stocked with worldwide wines, every single wine that I was familiar with was more expensive at K&L than it was elsewhere.
Glad to have the resource but my wine buying binges will be held elsewhere.
Best Selection, Price, Service – This is THE place to buy wines. I?ve been buying from them on-line for about 1.5 years. Their selections are from all over the world at routinely the best prices. But for me the clincher is the staff. Knowledgeable, friendly, and no attitudes (unlike a certain store on the Westside). I once asked a staffer to recommend the best wines under $10. They gave me the names of three wines, one from France, one from Italy, and one from the state of Washington?ALL excellent. Easily comparable to any wine in the $20-30 range. How refreshing?you get the feeling they really love what they do (not just trying to make a buck). Of course they also carry the rare and expensive. And, best of all, you can order anything in their inventory on-line and they?ll have it waiting for you to pick-up or they?ll deliver. If you love wine or are just starting to get into it, this is a great place to shop.
Dionysus take heed! Your newest temple has now opened in L.A.!!! – I live in San Diego County, and I have been buying from K & L in San Pancho for about a year. So having a K & L relatively close to home is a god send!!!!! Their selection of affordable wines is great, as is the selection of incredibly priced "first growths" ( That I will probably never be able to afford!)
I was like a little kid in a candy store when I first visited it the store to pick up my wines I had ordered thru the internet.
I look forward to getting up to L.A. more often now!
My prayers have been answered!!! – I have been a lover of K&L Wines for years. I've always found their selection to be excellent and the only drawback was their location in Northern Cal.
Finally they have come to LA, and what a wonderful store. Helpful staff, no attitude or wine snobs here. You have a selection that can?t be beat and prices which are some of the best in town. I think the best thing is that if you like a wine, they will normally have it in stock. So, it's not a "we bought a bunch of this for a special price and we can never get it again" thing.
Top notch, but be warned it's addictive!
Serious wine store with a fun attitude – I had heard about K&L from my friends in Northern California and I've used their site several times to find hard-to-get wines, so I was anxious to see them open up shop in Hollywood. I'm really into wine and this place has the potential to be my downfall. Anyways - the store is not your average bottle shop - it's HUGE. There are wines from all over the world... a lot of the famous labels you've heard about and then tons of things I've never seen before. Staff seems helpful and knowledgeable. Prices are very good. I've found them to be the lowest in LA on a lot of things but not everything. I'm willing to pay a little bit more if I'm getting great advice - and I haven't been steered wrong in the handful of visits since they opened in March. Last time in there I picked up some Champagne that they imported directly from France, which is a much better way to buy bubbly if you don't need to have a recognized label. Free parking in their adjacent lot is also very nice, since the last thing I want to do is fight traffic and then circle for parking or lug a case of wine three blocks. Overall I highly recommend this spot - my only complaint is that I usually leave here with very little money left in my wallet and an angry wife as a result.
