Reviews for Kendall's Brasserie

Another downtown outpost of Joachim Splichal's empire, Kendall's is a convenient place to dine before a performance at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion or Walt Disney Concert Hall, especially if you don't have the time or money for… Read Full Editorial

No problems here; In and Out for my show by Young N Reckless via Citysearch on 4/21/2012

This was my first time dining here and I would probably recommend to a friend and return myself. My friend and I arrived for dinner 10 minutes prior to 7 o' clock. We had an 8 o'clock show at the Ahmanson Theatre. The restaurant was pretty…

COCKROACHES and other Delicacies by Monsieur Rongeur Reports via Citysearch on 3/13/2010

I dined this week at Kendall’s due to its convenient location to the theatre even though past experience has taught me that the food is overpriced & below average. Little did I know that while I ate the tiniest saltiest portion of hot…

Hit or Miss by Countplato via Citysearch on 12/13/2009

Having been here several times, there was a time I would have given it five stars, but over the years (really since the economy started to tank), so has the service and food. You occasionally get a great server, but overall, the quality…

Just Okay. by PrimeBeefLover via Citysearch on 10/18/2009

I'll admit this right off the wife demanded that I publish this review. It was our anniversary and we were attending a dynamite play at the Ahmanson and we always eat French on our anniversary. Boy were we stoked! We had arrived…

Kendall's Brasserie by Erin + Jack L via Insider Pages on 10/3/2008

One of the nice things about downtown L.A. are the smattering of upscale hotel and theatre bars and restaurants. It was out first time to Kendall's, but we ordered the usual temptations: foie gras and lamb and oysters. The French 75s…

Avoid it if you want to go to a show by mryan9530 via Citysearch on 2/22/2008

I am not surprised by the bad reviews for Kendall's. I had an amalgam of the experiences of the other (bad) reviewers - food is ok but nothing special and overpriced, kitchen is agonizingly slow, staff is not particularly helpful, and any…

Make your evening more relaxed and eat just below the Music Center by jarednc via Citysearch on 2/19/2008

I'm surprised at all the bad reviews for Kendall's, because we had an excellent evening. We had a French waitress who was very helpful with selections and getting us out on time for the LA Opera. The food was great, it was easy to get…

Don't like the crowd. Over priced. And $8 parking. by kazumia via Menuism on 1/27/2008

Don't like the crowd. Over priced. And $8 parking.

Busy theater crowd, but worth it! by ns519 via Citysearch on 12/29/2007

I was surprised to read all the negative reviews. I make it a point to dine here when I see a show at the music center. The food and service are excellent. The polenta ravioli is my favorite and the wine list is extensive. It does get…

Don't be fooled because it's a Patina Group Restaurant by justla via Citysearch on 10/14/2007

So-so food at so-so prices. \r The onion soup is good. My friend had the Rissotto and it was nothing to write home about. The pear salad was ok, but had hardly any greens. I had the shrimp and avocado salad, the dressing/vinagrette was…

Terrible Service! by jaxwein via Citysearch on 10/1/2007

The food was not bad, decor great, but the SERVICE WAS AWFUL! I told our server upon being seated that we needed to be out at 7:30 for an 8:00 show. She said no problem. We ordered fairly simple first courses (salad/oysters - nothing that…

Worst dining experience I?ve ever had in my life by rickphillips via Citysearch on 8/24/2007

I have never written a review about restaurant, but since this was the worst dining experience I?ve ever had in my life ? I feel obliged to share it with the world. \r \r Kendall's Brasserie has the advantage of proximity to the Ahmadson…

GOOD FOOD! by letseatnow via Citysearch on 5/23/2007

This place has great food but gets bad reviews because they get all the crowd from people going to Play's,Oprah, and a concert all at once! So the wait for the food might be a bit long, nonetheless its good food and service is great.

disappointing by room18 via Citysearch on 12/10/2006

we went here one night after seeing a show at the opera house upstairs. Beautiful ambience and great location. We walked in around 5:00PM, very early and had a reservation for six. There was hardly anyone there and we were seated right…

No problem, high quality pre-theater dining by asteriodbill via Citysearch on 9/7/2006

After reading earlier reviews, was somewhat concerned about our evening meal before a great show at the Ahmanson. Our apprehension was misplaced. The food was very good and the service was attentive without being pushy. Got us to the…

Not Bad~ by sweet_indulgence via Citysearch on 5/24/2006

I went there pre-theatre during Saturday and the dining experience was totally fine. I ordered the steak frites with lemonade, which were both decent. I also ordered a salad, which I thought was average. The service was fine.

Rediculous service by suuupra via Citysearch on 2/9/2006

Went here after a show at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The service was some of the worst I have seen in LA. Sitting at our table for 15 minutes before someone even comes by with water is rediculous. Having our waiter have to come back…

Never again! by dshimabukuro via Citysearch on 9/23/2005

Arrived at 5:45 pm, asked to be out by 7 for a 7:30 performance. Entrees arrived at 7 and at 7:15 hostess asked how we enjoyed our (expensive) dinner! Never again!

Music Center brasserie offers upscale ambience and French fare--without the attitude. by Randi Schmelzer via Citysearch on 2/17/2004

In Short
The Patina Group's (Pinot Hollywood, Zucca) addition to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion is a Continental-style restaurant which caters to theatergoers and businesspeople. Mahogany walls, white table-clothed banquettes and…

One Of The Worst Dining Experiences Ever by gcasalenuovo via Citysearch on 2/16/2004

This had to be one of my worst dining experiences ever. We started off by ordering our drinks and then our appetizers and meals. We had to ask the manager for our drinks 10 min. after we finished eating our soups, because our waiter never…
