Yummy ribs!. Best ribs in LA. Not to mention the cornbread were amazing too. Had a great time with friends here last night. Great atmosphere and service. Cant wait to go back
No corking fee makes this place 5 stars!. Alright, this should be a pretty simple review. Bandera is one of my favorite restaurants in LA! There is no corking fee, so feel free to bring your favorite bottle of wine. The food is outstanding, and honestly I have to say the prime rib is better than some other better known establishments in Beverly Hills (you know who I am talking about!). So, great food, no corking fee and a hip and swanky bar area with a piano player equals one of my favorite destinations in LA.
Best Ribs in town.. The best beef ribs with little fat.It's so good that they don't even put it on the menu since too many people order it.
Perfect. This place is awesome! The service and food are excellent. They have live jazz music many nights and you can bring in a bottle of wine void of any corkage fee. It really saves you a ton of money, considering the type of food you can order there. They do a great job with every aspect of their business. Living next door to them is a great perk of the neighborhood.
awesome new salad!. I have loved this place for a long a time, but I went the other night and had a new salad, with chicken, avocado, goat cheese, veggies and the most amazing cornbread croutons! Yummmmmm
Great Food!. Bandera has become a staple in the restaurants that I frequent in LA. The food is fantastic, but I usually don't stray to far from the tuna poke, macho salad, and banana pie for dessert. But when I do stray everything I have tried has been great. Also, you can bring in your own bottle of wine for dinner which can really make a difference in your bill at the end of the night. My friends and I go here a lot and the only bad thing I can say is that if you don't have a reservation you have to wait a long time, but the plus side is that there is usually good people watching and great live music being played.
Uh, can you say. Yum. Filet Mignon with bernaise... delicious. I went there with some girlfriends and we all had a great time. Every one of us loved what we ordered. I think it was the first time my high maintenance friends didn't send their food back. The ribs were ridiculously good. They also have a jazz trio, it was a really nice touch.
Hot Rotiserie; Lamb,Chicken. Good enchiladas. Atmosphere..
Freshly carved leg of lamb, right off of the rotisserie is available. Drinks are usually good, but take forever to get.
Live music at times.
Fantasticly nice servers.
Drinks are a little pricey and slow to come.
Shhh, did you know that you can get free corkage here!!
Food is always exceptional.
Warm, cozy, if loud atmosphere.
Great food, great atmosphere. The service and ambiance in this place is fantastic. I've been here several times, and the best meals were the burger and the steak/enchilada combo. The only meal I didn't think was worth the $$$ was the chicken. Whenever my gf and I feel like going to a fancier place, this is always our first choice.
consistently excellent. This is one of my favorite restaurants. I've been going to Bandera for years and have never been disappointed. I LOVE IT! The atmosphere is very nice; live jazz and a professional crowd (for the most part). Everything on the menu is excellent. You really can't go wrong. My favorite is the amazing prime rib. The ribs are awesome too, macho salad is sooo good, yummy corn bread, and the deserts are great. I love the banana cream pie and the coffee is really, really good (I called to ask what kind it is and got it)! Also, the wine selection is nice and they are generous with the pours (gotta love that!). The prices aren't too bad. I meet my friends often for dinner and we bring our own bottle of wine (NO CORKAGE FEE at the tables). The service has always been terrific. I've never had a problem; food comes fast and servers are very nice. If you ask for one, they'll even give you a bone to bring home to your dog. My dog goes crazy for them!! I took my family when they visited from out of town and they loved it too. My boyfriend said he didn't like steak/prime rib until he had the prime rib at Bandera (he loves it there). If you are a meat-lover, this is the place to go!! They take reservations, and I suggest making them (there can be a long wait at times).
