There’s just something special about this hidden gem. Wonderful food, awesome atmosphere and affordable prices. If you want to look good on date night this is the spot for you.

The food and service were amazing! I made a reservation on OpenTable for my husband's birthday and they were very responsive and accommodating. They told us we weren't able to bring in outside food or drink but offered us birthday deserts for our party. It was a magical experience and the customer service was above and beyond.

We shared the brussel sprouts, hamachi crudo, shishito peppers and squash blossoms between 7 people to start and it was all fantastic! Their mezcal margarita is to die for! Fantastic night out for all of us!!

Nacho hour is bomb. Corn plate was ok. Cauliflower was delicious. Drinks are good. WATCH OUT FOR SERVICE CHARGE ON YOUR BILL .

Great spot on weekends! Have tried the menu here many times and weekends after the brunch rush the restaurant was great even if you just wanted to sit at the bar and have some nice Tex-Amex cuisine in Los Angeles. Drink menu is amazing. Wide range of mezcal and tequila based cocktails. They make their own michelada mix and you can try it with three types of beer. They even make a special ice cube for the micheladas to give it an extra kick.

This place has been here for quite a while, and it definitely has found its rhythm. I loved Joseph Centeno's other restaurant on Main Street, but sadly that has closed. The Tex-Mex Cuisine here is first-rate. The queso is delicious, and the enchiladas very good. The stuffed squash blossoms sealed the deal.

The smoked okra was the best okra I have had in my entire life. Which is a weird thing to recommend, I know. The queso was also awesome. Huge cod fish tacos. I didn't have drinks in deference to my friend with me but the hibiscus limeade was delish.

Amazing food! What a pleasant surprise. I had just gotten into town and stumbled upon this place in search of Mezcal in the area. While my drink was amazing, the food was the star! The only reason this isn’t a 5 star review is because our table was not ready, but we were offered to sit on the outside patio/alley for drinks until our table was available. We never got notification of our table as we wished to move inside as there was some sort of singles event going on outside. Possibly a missed communication. Would still highly recommend!

Incredible Mexican cuisine! The only thing we ordered that wasn't EXCEPTIONAL was the guacamole. The queso, hamachi ceviche (pictured), and entrees were absolutely delicious. They also carry Chef Josef's unique sodas which were delicious as well!

A few months ago the Food 52 cookbook club on Facebook (around 35,000 members) cooked from the Bar Amá cookbook and everyone fell in love with Tex-Mex, Josef Centeno's family stories, the absolutely excellent recipes, and the alcohol section too. When I finally decided to fly after months and months of being at home during the pandemic, I came to see my daughter in Los Angeles and had literally only one food wish - to go to Bar Amá. I wasn't disappointed. They have the alley open for outdoor dining, our server was fantastic and she seemed to enjoy all my cookbook stories ????, I mean, if she didn't, she hid it well lol! Everything we had was excellent, see the photos. If you haven't yet been you should go and don't forget the B side of the menu the blistered okra was stellar and so was the za'atar labneh & puffy bread. P.S. BUY THE COOKBOOK! I've made 40-50 of the recipes, they all are totally worth it!
