Perfect vibe for a wedding
We chose this restaurant as our location to host our wedding reception in Los Angeles.We spent over a year trying to find a place that is not only characteristically but also extremely unique, offering our guests a truly memorable experience. This place blew our minds away. The food was impeccable, the service was among some of the best I have ever received, and the hospitality was so warm and welcoming that all of our guests had an exceptional time. I highly reccomend this establishment and will most definitely be going back to dine in again and again...Sent on 04/21/2020
