Alibi Room is my favorite after-work hang out spot. Great beer selection that rotates frequently, great home-made drinks for a little stronger buzz, and great casual setup/ triangle bar when you arrive. Alibi Room's food is the best kept secret in West LA, a truly amazing korean-mexican blend of delicious snacks. Quesadillas are unbelievable.

You must try the Gordons cup drink and the sour cream bowl both are so delicious. They have a very nice look in their bar, with a fireplace and comfortable seating. The wings however, weren't as good. I recommend trying their tacos or the bowls.

One of Roy Choi's brainchilds made perfect. Go for the drinks (good and plentiful), go for the atmosphere (neighborhood bar), go for the service (attentive and friendly), but mostly go for the Korean BBQ beef tacos...they are AMAZING. Skip the three diff varieties stick to the beef short rib. Don't know if it was Choi the first one who thought... More

Went here with friends for a late night drink and some food. Ordered a bunch of different dishes between ourselves and tried them all. Everything was excellent. Service was not bad at all considering how full the place was. We were lucky to get a spot on the couches inside but I could see how some could be frustrated with... More

Food here is yumm-o...but it's a bar. Nothing wrong with bars- except for seating space. Very cool and hip, but if you want to sit for dinner-think about it. There is seating at the bar, seats along the wall, and an outdoor area- mostly being used by smokers. The main area is open for standing- but hard to eat and... More

Very nice bar in trendy and cool ambiance. You should not miss their Korean fusion bar food too. Highly recommended.

While planning out our trip to LA, my friend had talked about Alibi Room, so we drove here straight from the airport and found a parking spot immediately - lucky, considering there are only maybe 20 spots max in their dedicated lot. Truthfully we came to Alibi Room pretty much for Kogi/Chego, not really the bar itself; however, the atmosphere... More

We went here because we heard the tacos were good. They are delicious! Other than that, we did not like the place - dark, loud, not much seating, average service, mediocre drinks.

This is a great place for food and get drinks. Seating is limited but it can be refreshing to eat along the side of the restaurants our the cushy couches. Either way the food and staff always deliver. If your looking for a quick meal thats affordable this is the place.
