    Doesn't live up to the hype! The restaurant's interior is nice but nothing special. Pizza was soggy, the cacio pepe was overly al dente and a bit too peppery. Disappointing :/

    We were visiting from Canada and my husband knew about Chef Evan Funke and really wanted to try his food. We were also celebrating his birthday and figured it would be a perfect place. We were not disappointed! The service, from walking in the door until we left was spectacular. The hostess was a delight and made us feel very welcome. Our server was lovely, and gave us some great recommendations, from wine to dishes to choose. The staff were very attentive throughout our meal and we throughly enjoyed the experience. The peaches and burrata were absolutely amazing, as were the pasta dishes we tried. Cacio e Pepe is a favourite of mine having tried it in Rome, so I was very excited to see it on the menu. The pasta was perfectly al dente and other than being slightly too heavy on the pepper, was spot on. We also enjoyed the tagliatelle ragu and the sausage orecchiette. We ended with the tiramisu which absolutely blew my mind. It was absolutely delicious. We had the pleasure of sitting watching Chef Evan create his pasta to perfection which made our visit even more special. It was fascinating to watch his attention to detail. All in all, a spectacular visit and one we are glad we had the opportunity to try.

    Excellent service from Nora! Food is good, but not as special as I remember it from 2020. Pizza crust was soggy and dough undercooked. One pasta was excellent, another was undercooked (hard, not al dente). Salad and fritto misto were excellent. The patio ambience is great. A good addition to the dining experience here.

    The food was excellent, the service adjusted to the table very nicely and was the perfect combination of attentive while also leaving us alone. We sat in the outdoor section and it was very pleasant. Everything was prepared and presented to perfection. Crowd favorites for us were the squash blossoms, the fiche e prosciutto pizza, and the Orecchiette pasta (thankfully recommended by our waiter). The focaccia was also a standout as it is incredibly lite as far as focaccias go. The panna cotta was the standout for one in our party. If you like custard desserts, then I'd recommend trying the desserts and/or the Budino. Overall it's one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to. I definitely plan to go again.

    The two pasta dishes pictured were AMAZING!! Definitely some of the best pasta I have had. And the portions appear smaller than they really are. If you order a few dishes they are big enough to share among a few people. Highly recommend!

    Felix Trattoria continues to be the very best restaurant in Los Angeles! The food, cocktails, wine, service and ambience were fantastic and memorable. The Prosciutto Fig Pizza and Pork Chop with Plums - C'mon! Incredible. Kelly was the most conscientious, happy and responsive server along with the exceptional front and back of house team, including and not limited to Dana, Ricky, and Alejandro. Can't wait to return!

    Arrived promptly at 7pm for my reservation but they made us wait for 15 minutes. Server was attentive but wish she had mentioned that balsamic was available at an additional charge. I had to wait an extra 8 minutes for it and was starving to try the bread.

    Arrived at 7:55pm table wasn’t ready waited until 8:20pm, hostess was extremely apologetic. server immediately got us drinks and brought over a special appetizer for our inconvenience. Dinner, service and ambience on outside patio were lovely! That being said a complementary drink at the bar would’ve been nice while we waited…..

    The place is beautiful, we sat outdoors, but when it came down to food it wasnt worth it. Best way to put it is the “expense to taste” ratio was wayyy off. It was also my birthday and they didnt care. I don’t expect a bunch but they were just like “i hear theres a birthday.” No desert, no ice cream, no one sang. Anyway the birthday thing was just one part, at the end of the day this is not a place id consider again if im legitimately hungry. Maybe a business meeting or a date where the ambiance is more important than actually eating.

    We came here for our anniversary dinner because everyone raves about how awesome Felix is. Sadly we were underwhelmed by the whole experience. The food was good - but definitely not worth $300 given the poor dining experience. The ambiance was not great, we were sat in the back room located next to the noisy service station. It was hard to enjoy the meal with the loud silverware and plates shuffled around all night. We made a reservation a week in advanced but that didn’t guarantee us a good space as clearly the restaurant prioritized certain guests over others (the better seating at the front of the house was reserved for special guests of the chef). We had high expectations given the high price and that it is hard to get a reservation, but overall the experience and food were not worth the money. Sadly the management was not empathetic or hospitable towards our concerns, and their solution was that we come back another night and eat dinner at 5 o’clock instead when all the tables are empty (and spend another $300). Jon & Vinny’s is just as good with a much more welcoming staff and dining experience. Don’t waste your time or money

    Always a fantastic experience. Unfortunately, the SFV has no place to dine; but, it's so worth it. Chef Funke has created a beautiful experience-that's why he's #1. Wouldn't go anywhere else for my birthday! The hostess and Jack the waiter were absolutely stupendous........5 star plus more! Thank you!

    I have been to Felix a number of times and had impeccable service and even better food, nothing but 5 stars. However, the service was horrendous this time. An inattentive server and ill-timed courses put quite the damper on our meal. I will not be returning after this unfortunate 5th experience at Felix.

    3 out of the 4 of us got REALLY, REALLY sick after eating there last night. And the 4th person didn’t because he sent back two dishes as they were both inedible. He left the restaurant hungry. We also had to wait 30 minutes for table past the reso time and service/kitchen was so slow the dinner lasted 3 hours!!
