Seafood rules at this Beverly Hills outpost of the local chain that mixes Japanese and Italian cuisine.
Great food, extra mile for customers. Tried the LA Dine tasting menu last night. Very solid food. A little bit on the heavy side, but tasty. There was a problem with me bringing my happy hour drink to the table, so the manager of the restaurant brought me a bottle of champagne to replace it. Not attitude here, just great service, including our great server, and wonderful food. I've been here many times for drinks but never for dinning, and it surpassed my expectations.
Dine LA week, Great Deal! Yummy food!.
Go Now!! Right now is dine about LA week! $34 for a 3-course pre-fix menu is awesome. The food is delicious and the service was pretty nice. Although the place is very loud, but it is a nice place. I also ordered off the regular menu and I am so glad I did. They made a wonderful seared foie gras with a truffled mac & fontina cheese with crisp bacon & mushrooms. It was just pure perfection! The only thing was there were too many flavors fighting for my taste buds attention, nonetheless wonderful! If you want to see my full review of their dineLA menu and for fabulous pictures of the food go to my blog, kats9lives on blogger.
I will definitely come back again! They have a nice wide selection of drinks too. Although I think they are a little over priced but what can you expect when you dine out in Beverly Hills ^_^
The food was absolutely delicious. The best dinner I've had in a while.
The waiter was also excellent. We were a big party and had kids at our table, which can sometime be difficult for waiters. But he did a great job.
Sneaky Service. I've been to this restaurant before, and the food was pretty good, though VERY overpriced for what it is. I went there last Friday night, and had a very negative experience. Our waitress asked if we wanted cocktails, when we said we'd just like water she asked if we wanted "sparkling or still" which is a familiar ploy to get customers to buy Pellegrino or the like. When we said still, meaning nice, free, good 'ol tap water, she proceeded to bring us an ultra Los Angelesesque enormous, waste of plastic $7.50 bottle of water. This was a very sneaky little trick to get herself a larger tip, which I assure you she did not get. I don't need some waitress forcing some obscenely overpriced water down my throat. The food is alright here, but not if you are going to be treated like that. I will not be returning. I'll be going to The Hungry Cat where the service is always top notch and the food is a million times better.
Fantastic. Fantastic lunch spot - try the burger and a killer happy hour! One of the coolest places in LA without being a total scene.
Great Food Served With An Attitude. We dined at Chaya for the first time recently and found the atmosphere great, the food delicious, but the service was lacking. There wasn't much personality coming from the bartender, the hostess had us wait about 30 minutes after our reservation time to get our table, and then we ended up with a waiter with an attitude. He was never very warm and gratious to begin with but when I commented on my entree, he showed no interest in making me happy. I ordered the halibut with scallops and sake broth on rice. There were no scallops (he told me they were in the broth), the halibut was surrounded by shrimp (not listed on the menu) and sprinkled with peas (also not on the menu). He made no effort to suggest an alternative, just took away the plate when I told him I didn't want it and brought back a menu and left again. We might come back but there are plenty of fantastic restaurants in L.A. with fantastic service.
Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!. While visiting L.A., our concierge recommended that we have dinner at Chaya. We had the most amazing meal, the best service, and fantastic drinks! I loved their martinis! Thank you, Chaya, for being the highlight of our trip to Los Angeles!
Never disappoints!. Every time I go there I kick myself and say why don't I come more often. Like most of us foodies out there, we keep looking for the new "it" restaurant and turn our nose up on the great standards around town - This is one of them! The food never disappoints, perfectly prepared, always inventive, and delicious. The ambience is chic, the service is prompt and for the money you could can't beat it. Take that special person out there soon!!!
Great restuarant with a Manhattan vibe. this restaurant (and the one in Venice) has excellent food and a great ambience. The food is eclectic and creative. It's always packed and great for a date or with a group of friends. A little pricey but the food is worth it.
best lychee martini. monday night (all night) happy hours are great! no one can beat their lychee martini! it is not too sweet and has the right amount of alcohol (not overpowering, but not watered down either). during happy hour, i think it is about $5.50. not bad. the bar food is also good and affordable. can't go wrong with the spicy shrimp rolls. as for dinner, it is a bit pricey. it is good but not spectacular. it is a good place to just hang out after work.
