    Overhyped, overpriced, undercooked pasta (fil di ferro, is it made up? No Italian I have ever talked to has heard of this). Just because you claim you're the greatest American Sfoglino, doesn't make it true. It's not bad, but it's not great. There are better "authentic" Italian restaurants (Puglia in SM is one and is run by Italians). This was my 3rd visit and we thought we would give them another chance. Service was very good, the staff are wonderful, but unfortunately the food was not. Won't be returning.

    Food was good but I did not think it was great. I have friends who told me it was great but I found the best part the focaccia bread. The two pastas ordered were okay but I did not think they left me wanting either one again Parpadelle and the Troife. The meatballs were okay but I find the ones @ ETTA located in The Shay Culver City much tastier. The service at Felix was spot on!!

    Definitely on the more expensive side, however, food was absolutely amazing. For three people, we had an appetizer, three pasta dishes and a pizza to share. Server was attentive and had a great sense of humor. Just keep in mind that it seems like they are reservation only - meaning you can't be there for hours on end. They did give us a fair amount of time before the next reservation showed up, so no complaints there. Overall a very positive experience - other than the cost (which was fair for the quality of food), the only thing I would suggest is lower the ambient music just a tad.

    Service was excellent but a bit rushed. They were obviously trying to turn the tables quickly. Wine is very expensive by the bottle and the corkage fee is $50 per bottle which is really high. The food was delicious. We loved every bite.

    Food was good but not spectacular. Sficone was excellent. Pizza was actually mediocre. The website shows it golden brown to even black. Ours was pale white, and you’re done in my opinion. Pasta were okay The outdoor ambiance was poor. Music too loud and an odd choice for a high end restaurant. Sun made us uncomfortably hot

    We went to celebrate father's day. My husband has been wanting to go to The Felix for a year. I had to wake up at 5am the previous Sunday to make the reservation which worked out. There were four of us and we ordered one salad, two pizzas, three pastas and two desserts. The server brought us complimentary squash blooms which were amazing! I never would have ordered that so i was happy we go to to try them and love them. The portions were smaller than I was expecting. The food was delicious but with four people, we could have ordered the focaccia and been fine. We ordered desserts and coffees. This was the only issue -they brought the desserts out right away but didn't bring the coffees out until after the check came. It seems they forgot our coffees so it was unfortunate we could not enjoy both at the same time. Not sure if we would go again. It was a nice experience but for the price it would have been nice to have had a bit more food.

    We have always had a great time with our servers the handful of times we have dined. For Father’s Day me and the kids treated dad and while we racked up a $700 bill the service was different. The server seemed annoyed with us being there. She did the motions but they did not feel sincere. We will return for the food but will hope for different wait staff.

    After dining at some of LA’s best Italian spots, I can confidently say that Felix is at the very top of that list. Not only was the food phenomenal, the overall experience is exceptional. The pace of the meal feels carefully crafted, with courses coming out at just the right time and balanced with the organic conversations happening at the table. We were here for my girlfriend’s birthday with some of her friends and had an amazing time. A few highlights: - Cocktails were exceptional, we transitioned to a beautiful bottle of Brunello Di Montalcino 2017 guided by their Somm. - Focaccia was almost like a donut texture, melting in your mouth and so flavorful. - Squash blossoms was nothing like we had ever had, filled with beautiful ricotta and a very light batter on the outside - Pizzas we’re classic Neapolitan, a little pricey for 6 slices but the ingredients were incredibly fresh and vibrant so highly recommend. - Pastas are all made from scratch and cooked perfectly. We went with the cacio de Pepe and the pesto and they were both amazing. Cooked Al dente and perfect serving sizes. - Finished with the rib eye cap cooked beautiful with the right amount of salt and great crust. Highly recommend Felix for any special occasion or high end date spot.

    Expected far more for such a pricey pasta place with a good reputation. The bill was over $300 for a party of 3 for an order including 3 appetizers, 3 pastas, and 3 drinks. Portions were also small and our table felt unsatisfied by the end of the meal (but also did not want to order more as we felt it wasn't worth the price). The pasta itself was quite mediocre. I could barely drink the wine. The best part of the meal was the focaccia. Food: - Focaccia was great, would get again - Squash blossoms good but not worth $25 - Burrata - good but small portions (as was everything else) - Pastas: lemon pasta came out cold and was too lemony. Pomodoro sauce flavorless tasted like came out of a can. Pesto sauce good but my home-made pesto is superior. Noodles themselves tasted flavorless, undercooked (beyond al dente) and rubbery texture - Wine: Bitter, tasted like wine bottle was already open. Expected more for a $20 glass of wine Service: Everyone friendly & informative. Staff were great.

    I would like to start by saying everything was delicious. I went in with such high expectations that a couple of the dishes were just good, not extraordinary like I was expecting them. However, I was really happy to have been able to celebrate my birthday there. The staff was very nice!

    I have been to Felix twice in the past which were both pre-Covid visits. After trying for weeks to secure a reservation I went again last night. Unfortunately, the vibe, service and food was not as good as my prior visits to this venue. Maybe they were having an off night or maybe they are resting on their laurels and high demand as evidenced by their crazy reservation waiting list. I will return again sometime down the line and will give them the benefit of just having “an off night”. Parenthetically, I find their $50 corkage fee to be excessive and ridiculous. Ciao for now.

    Went for a celebration with a friend. Staff was very excellent with service, and very attentive. Our waitress provided excellent recommendations as well. We ordered the sfincione, Margherita pizza, filetto pizza, and an arrabiatta pasta. Both the first two items were excellent; absolutely worth ordering. The Filleto pizza had almost two many tomatoes and was halfway falling apart, but still quite tasty. The areabiatta pasta was also good, but not spectacular. For drinks, we ordered a primavera cocktail and a non-alcoholic drink I can’t recal, but both tasted splendid. Great food, great service, great vibes in a warm outdoor patio that was lit enough to see the people around you but dark enough to provide a more intimate setting.
