This Mediterranean wine bistro has a West Coast shabby chic vibe, complete with showy linen drapes, rustic wooden tables and boisterous, hip diners. The tapas menu features both cold (ranging from antipasto to an assortment of olives) and hot (including bacon wrapped medjool dates and braised beef short ribs) varieties.

"I went here with a meetup group, there were 10 girls and it was a great time. The waitress was attentive but also gave us our space. Everything we tried was delicious, from the wine to the tapas/entrees and desserts. I will for sure be returning as I'm already craving the paella! Next time I will try to grab space on the patio, it seemed nice out there and was a *tad* warm in the restaurant. (That could have been from the wine.....)"

"Great sushi place downtown. It is a go-to of mine for work lunches. Went for some sushi and it did not disappoint. Service was a little slower than usual, not sure why. It's very cold in the restaurant - bring a sweater!"

Located on Restaurant Row in Beverly Hills, The Stinking Rose is as unique as its name--romantic tents for dining and garlic-themed rooms for special occasions or just a bite to eat.

"Food was delicious but service was really slow. We had to hunt down the waiter several times, it was quite annoying. It's a great place to bring family/guests that are in town from the east coast. I recommend the pasta dishes. Add shrimp or chicken to the butter garlic parsley pasta, you won't be disappointed!"

"We are frequent Morton's patrons. This trip was pretty good, Stephen, a waiter we had last time remembered us. We should have requested to be in his section! The manager, again acted as if she had no idea who we were. It gets a little old her asking us every time if it's our first time there when we've eaten there at least 8 or 9 times, speaking with her practically every time. It was a nice change to see a familiar face as the wait staff tends to swap out a lot. The food was pretty good, my steak was a bit overcooked along the outside but not enough that I wanted to send it back. The chocolate mousse as always is AMAZING."

"We had family in town and took them here for a dinner on Friday night. The service was great, which is rare for this area so we really appreciate that. The food was pretty good. Certain things were hit or miss. The garlic cauldron was DELICIOUS, highly recommend! Those that ordered pasta dishes were more satisfied than those that ordered meat dishes. I had the short ribs and they were a little dry for my taste. My uncle had the prime rib and said it was good, but he's had better. I would return and try the pasta."

Aventine is an eclectic social trattoria. The food is rustic Italian, the drinks robust, the bar area feels as though it has been around for a century, and the outdoor patio is alluring yet intimate. Located in the heart of the Hollywood Entertainment district, this turn of the century restaurant feels like you’re in the heart of Italy. The menu is Farmers Market inspired with simple yet sublime ingredients. join Aventine for a culinary experience you won’t want to miss.

"I went to Aventine with a group of girlfriends on Valentine's day. There were 8 of us and the restaurant was able to accommodate us nicely. Overall, the food was very good. The service was only OK. It was busy being Valentine's day and all but there were a few things that stick out that are worth mentioning. First, one of the girls ordered a salad which was about $12 or so? She asked to have mozzarella added to the salad, a reasonable request. The mozzarella was delicious, however when the bill came, it was $10 up charge which basically doubled the price of the salad. It was imported cheese but still, the waiter should have mentioned that. When we questioned him, he said "i just give you what you ask for, I don't know what it costs." I thought that was a very unprofessional response. We spoke with the manager and they were reluctant to help us with that. They also would not split the check which makes it difficult when dining with big groups. I would return, but with a smaller group and on a less busy night."

"We have driven by Connie and Ted's numerous times and have never tried it. Finally we hopped in for a late lunch and it was delicious. The lobster roll was really good and I thought the lobster serving was fair for the money. The salted rolls we started with were delicious. They also had really good fries and onion rings. Service was good, we would return and recommend."
