Rare by Drai’s is a modern, stylish and welcoming steakhouse by acclaimed restaurateur and nightlife impresario Victor Drai and international restaurant and hospitality group ESquared Hospitality. With the DJ setting the distinctive soundscape upon entry, a creative design aesthetic envisioned by Drai and an alluring bar and lounge, Rare by Drai’s offers just the right amount of excess to appeal to Drai’s Los Angeles-meets-Las Vegas sensibility. Rare is a new type of steakhouse with a French-inspired menu serving classics with a fresh, modern twist. Like all great steakhouses, meats and seafood take center stage, but in collaboration with Executive Chef Patrick Florendo, Drai has designed a menu that goes beyond the ordinary. Featuring signature dishes such as Whole Roasted Loup de Mer and Roasted Whole Range Free Chicken deconstructed and re-constructed for a shared table experience, the menu also includes all prime-aged steaks, butchered in house, and fresh seafood options.

"I dined with Rare when it first opened and loved it. This was my second time, and this time it has done a 180 and not for the good. Bartender did not know how to make drinks (overheard her say that she's normally the hostess but they had to have her fill in so maybe that explains that), the salad was limp and had 1 little artichoke only, the mushrooms were barely cooked this time and the potatoes were something a 5 year old could make. Meat was fine but nothing special. And the prices increased overall by a fair amount. Wont dine here ever again, and judging by the sparse crowd others feel the same. Back to Mastro's we go!"

Herringbone serves innovative ocean-to-table cuisine and uniquely crafted cocktails from chefs Brian Malarkey and Anthony Sinsay. The vibrant interior brings back the dazzling personality of old Hollywood mixed with fanciful details and surprising contemporary elements. Relax as good conversation, eclectic music, and savory scents fill the restaurant, creating the perfect social dining experience.<br /><br />In addition to serving lunch, brunch, dinner and happy hour, Herringbone’s kitchen will be providing 24-hour room service to guests of Mondrian Los Angeles, catering, food and beverage service for the hotel lobby, and food service for the Skybar and Pool.

"First time dining here and it was a mixed bag. Restaurant is pretty, but we were given a boring table considering the views and told we couldn't switch even though there were tables in the back. Service was good but a little overbearing w/the constant water pours. The escargot appetizer was outstanding; the shrimp cocktail not so much. Drinks were good but a bit too expensive. Steak entree was good; my pasta was horrible. Way overcooked and limp and the noodles were even broken. Parking is very expensive even with validation. Overall, not worth the price of admission considering all the other fine dining options in LA; the uneven food and overpriced parking and drinks just don't make it worth it unfortunately."
