The Original Texas Barbecue King

 5 star(s)  (06/02/2002)
“This is the authentic barbecue in Los Angeles. The beef ribs, baby back ribs, the tri tip beef and chicken wholes are slow smoked in barrel smokers. This ensures that the meats' flavor is actually on the spot made, not as fast food prepared by shortcut or some where else then reheated. Slow smoking ... ”

Original Pantry Cafe

Swingers

“I was surprised when I saw the menu, which has both standards and stuff you wouldn't expect to find at a diner. There's a great vegetarian selection, and also stuff for meat-eaters. Try the challah french toast! ”

The Water Grill

 5 star(s)  (02/20/2000)
“I took my date there last Saturday and she was blown away. I really liked the Char a lot and the vanilla cheese cake was wonderful. My date had oysters and the scallops and she loved it. Our server was very nice too and knew what he was doing.”

The Water Grill

 5 star(s)  (02/04/2000)
“My dinner at Water Grill was the best I have had in Los Angeles. The French Seabass was better than in Paris. I have never had seafood of this quality in LA. The service was very friendly and the wine list exceptional. I would definitely recommend it.”

The Water Grill

 5 star(s)  (02/04/2000)
“If you love seafood you will love this place. So will your date or your clients. The food is unbelievable, as is the wine. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. I am a regular now.”

Patina Restaurant

 3 star(s)  (02/04/2000)
“Patina was not even close to the experiences I got to appreciate in New York City. It's not bad but cannot even get close to Lutece, Jean George or others in this class. It's rather bland. The wine list however is great.”
