Whisper Lounge at the Grove shopping mall in Los Angeles is a gem. I have dined there alone & with friends. Everyone I've introduced Whisper Lounge to has had a positive experience, always a plus when you're the one recommending! I personally like going for a drink & appetizers , but I've also enjoyed lunch & dinner. The food is... More

Food for 5 arrived all at different times over a 40 minute period. The food was ok apart from the £48 steak which was well done instead of rare.

Located in the trendy Grove (but away from the crowds), this indoor outdoor restaurant is mellow with light healthy food. The salad I had was unusual with pieces of pickles and nuts.

Came here yesterday evening, before seeing the excellent Deadpool in the Pacific Theatres next door. The place is within the Grove; so very convenient for all the shops and entertainment facilities therein. It's modelled on an Americana Speakeasy and has a relaxed, yet sophisticated atmosphere inside. It was a mild evening and so our party sat near the open windows... More

We're a big group and this restaurant was able to accomodate us fast. The food was great. The servers were nice. The place was cozy and relaxing. We will come back for another lunch or dinner here.

We decided to dine here on a rainy day as we had planned to dine outside at the Grove and it wasn't a good idea in a downpour. The reviews were good and the menu looked decent enough. What a strange place. I can't say if it's the oversized purple banquettes, the swanky decor, the loud music from another era,... More

We enjoyed a nice outside lunch on a very warm October -- somehow they keep the patio seating cool. The service was friendly and relaxed. My tuna with soba noodles salad was spicy and quite tasty, while my daughter's salmon was fresh and perfectly grilled. A great spot for a fresh and light meal.

We came across this restaurant on our last day in LA while shopping in the Grove. We had a pleasant dinner with good wine. It was not top knotch but still a pleasant experience.
