Tom Colicchio's Craft in New York City received the James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant nationwide in 2002 & five years later brought Craft across the country to join the other "top chefs" in Los Angeles. His new American dishes marry the finest ingredients, haute cuisine and family-style service. Under the execution of Chef de Cuisine Dennis Crutchfield, Craft features produce from local organic farms, all-natural meats & day-boat seafood. With the award-winning architectural design of Bentel and Bentel & under the glow of filament bulbs, diners share dishes that celebrate 'single' ingredients, expertly & simply prepared.



Awarded Three and a Half Stars by S. Irene Virbila of the Los Angeles Times, she states:

“The menu offers a master class in contemporary American cuisine. You won’t find recipes with 17 ingredients or unnecessary frills. Each dish relies on simplicity & elegance, superb ingredients & expert execution to make its point."

While the food was quite delicious, the service was abominable. Although we probably had over 10 different servers/bussers/attendants at our table at various times, none knew what the other was doing. One of them, whose job was to explain things like the amuse and answer menu questions, had such a heavy accent we had to ask him several times to repeat his answers and I felt badly for him, he was obviously embarrassed. We were not ordering appetizers and were ordering steaks which we were told would take 50 minutes, so we asked for some bread to be brought to the table. That took 30 minutes and 2 additional requests. Beverages were refilled quickly, however, and seemed a big push, as I was asked if I wanted a refill on my cocktail when it was still half full. Things were brought to the table in a completely random manner, as sides were left for over 10 minutes before all of the mains were brought. 2 mains were brought, and the other 2 waited for 5 minutes. Who does this? At some point we started laughing when another person showed up to ask us the same questions, and when various others picked up plates that had not yet been finished. Sounds like some heavy training is needed. The food, again, was wonderful.

The restaurant is absolutely elegant and the service is impeccable-from the reservationists to the front stand to the very professional waitstaff. There were several lovely “host” touches that made the experience even more wonderful-valet or validated parking, a complimentary glass of Prosecco for International Women’s Day, an amuses bouche and a delicate little tasting of complimentary desserts. I was just a tad disappointed in the food - I expected it to be better given Chef Colicchio’s reputation and television judging. The avocado salad and side dish of Brussels sprouts were standouts-perfectly prepared and seasoned. Mouth-watering thinking about both. My scallops, though beautifully cooked and delicious, were gritty in every single bite. The potatoes were sub-par- boring roasted fingerlings that I make better at home, and the dessert was awful. I tried the lemon poppyseed donut plate with cinnamon apples and lemon sherbert. I thought it was a weird combo going in, but gave it a try and it was a complete failure. The donut was flavorless, the sherbert was bitter, and the apples simply didn’t belong there though they were heavenly. Those apples needed to be on a cinnamon biscuit/scone/crisp with spicy nuts and a pure vanilla bourbon ice cream. Might be a more traditional match, but would have worked better. It was a treat to go there the experience surpassed any expectation. I felt pampered, respected and very comfortable. Will go back to try a few different things - I am definitely looking forward to it.

What a wonderful experience. From the moment we walked in the lobby, we felt welcome and special. This was a birthday celebration, and from service to the excellence in food, we were overwhelmed. Thank you for your attention to detail, I would recommend the Hamachi and the scallops. Also, the new pasta dish was excellent.

The food here is divine - fresh, seasonal, and cooked to perfection. We had one salad, one side, one pasta one main dish (roast lamb = divine), and one dessert and that was the perfect amount of food for two people. Perfect ambience and attention to detail. We had to wait almost 45mins for our table, but other than that, the night was perfect.

I made a mistake and booked it on the wrong date. They called and sorted it out for me and made our belated Valentine's day dinner memorable...will return again for sure. The food was amazing, especially the octopus and mushrooms as well as the russian salad. Thank you again for making our evening special

This place is not good for groups. I have been here many, many times with small parties and never had a bad experience. I wanted to share with my friends and had a group of 10 - our waiter clearly was annoyed we were even there and couldn’t wait for us to be done. It’s not my fault they refused to seat us before 8:45pm for a large party and there was another table there later than us.

The food here is some of the best in LA, but definitely NOT good for large groups as you will get the evil eye the entire night.
