    I give this place 10/10 love the ambiance I like the food and drinks the steak frites was cooked to perfection. The branzino could improve. Barries were fresh and delicious the cream of them was not too sweet.

    We have dined at Cara many times and have always been impressed with the food. Ariel was our server, she was very sweet and new to Cara the service overall was very slow. We ordered desserts and waited almost 40 minutes till we saw Ariel and asked to cancel the dessert order. During the 40 minutes period, she could have checked in on us and apologized for the long wait. I hope she succeeds and gets better…but this definitely ended our evening on a lower note.

    Loved everything about the hotel and restaurant. You walk in and it’s like you are in a it’s like you are no longer in the hustle and bustle of LA but rather somewhere in the Mediterranean. Beautiful ambiance in the courtyard dining area. Everyone on the staff is so friendly and the service was spot on. We tried several appetizers and the lemon past…so good. We will definitely be repeat customers.

    It was a warm day and I worried about being seated outside but the umbrellas provided good shade. We started with their version of an Aperol Spritz, which was bitter in a good way and very refreshing. We had the prosciutto and burrata appetizer, along with the kale salad, which was very large (could have cut down on the kale). We ended up splitting the salmon and grilled broccolini. Both tasty, although the salmon was a tad overcooked. We ordered a bottle of Pinot and it came at room temp (warm) vs. cellar temperature, which is a big grip I have of most restaurants. Overall, lovely setting, good food and attentive service. Perfect place for dinner before a show at the Greek theater. Bonus is that it is open all day.

    This is a hidden gem, albeit an overpriced one. The hotel and restaurant are absolutely gorgeous. Food wise the portions are very generous although the chef could stand to go a little lighter on the salt when preparing vegetables. I had the Scottish salmon which was perfection but the veggie pairing was very salty and felt quite heavy. Also, ridiculously overpriced but still a great night out. When all is said and done the staff was fab and I'll def go back

    Cara was a beautiful experience. The Ceviche was the best thing I’d tasted. The only downfall was the brownie. The brownie was hard and a little flavorless. Other then that, the vibe was great, the food and drinks were excellent and the service was also very good!

    Love everything about it. Space is gorgeous. Staff if friendly and helpful. Food is fabulous. Brunch and lunch menus offer more and better choices than dinner and breakfast. Great place for any occasion or just a fun meal w/friends. We've always found parking on side streets within a couple blocks.

    The ambiance is gorgeous. Food is good but not necessarily the best but much in town but lots of options. The service was awful. Perhaps they were understaffed but nothing was communicated with us. Instead, we waited forever and had to ask several times for someone to help us and check on our food. For such a nice place, the bad service was shocking.

    I love Cara, but my only issue when I visit, is that it takes an oddly long amount of time to get each item (drink, starter, main, etc.). And it feels strange to say it's limited to a 90 min dining experience, when we didn't have out food for almost 60-70 minutes! Just some food for thought!

    I specifically put a note in the reservation to be seated in the main room. Please keep in mind a reservation was made. I am a black woman and when I asked for a table in the dining room they tried to seat me all the way in the dark cornet. This establishment clearly has a preference for more fairer complected people. They ended up seating me in the noisy courtyard on the street. I am very disappointed and will no longer be recommended this racist establishment.
