I have eaten here for years and everything on the menu is terrific. I would suggest the chocolate desserts. There is also a happy hour menu at the bar and community table.

This place is *really* tucked away in a strip mall and hard to find. Once you do, though, congratulations! You're in for a great evening. The mixed drinks are great. The food is definitely above average (give the brussels sprouts a try). The banana-chocolate bread pudding is killer. What I really appreciated, though, is that my friend and I lingered... More

This is the BEST Neighborhood place in L.A. that you have never heard of. A true gem of a place that L.A sorely lacks on the westside. Have been coming here for 4 years at least once a week. It is tucked away in a cheesy little mall near federal ave/sm bl in Brentwood. Brian runs the front of the... More

Since Nook opened several years ago, it's become one of my favorites for uniformly great food, carefully selected wines, and hand-crafted cocktails. I don't eat out frequently but Nook is always on my list and I'm happily there every couple of months. A central communal table is a favorite for small plates and the surrounding tables attract couples and small... More

We saw the review on Trip Advisor and thought we would give it a try and what a pleasant surprise! We knew from the reviews that it was hidden in the corner of a strip mall so we found it easily. The owner greeted us at the door and made us feel very welcome. We didn't have a reservation but... More

We stopped in for an early dinner and were able to order off both the happy hour and regular menus. We had the brussels sprouts (excellent), Caesar salad (very good), and a burger (very good, but pricey at $15). The service was excellent and efficient. Be sure to make a reservation or go early, as the restaurant gets very busy.... More

We are visitors from Hong Kong and searched for a nearby restaurant on google. Before we went, we checked the menu and it looked very attractive already. When we arrived, the restaurant was fully packed. Valentine's Day! The manager was very nice and asked us to wait for 25 minutes. Very soon we got our seats. The server was also... More

The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Creative menu. Some days they have a fixed price menu as well which is a great value. I highly recommend this small neighborhood restaurant.

We recently ate here with friends on a Sunday night when there is a 20 dollar, 3 course fixed menu (as well as a la carte options). Some of the group ordered a la carte and some the fixed menu. Everything was pretty good, though none of it mind-blowing. There were also some good beers and cocktails available
