Ok so...went back again but still wasn't wowed. Tried the salmon this time and while it was very flavorful with a beautiful presentation (forgot the pic) it was still overcooked!
Service was excellent as usual.

Changed the menu but love the open airy friendly vibe!

Food was yummy. My pic is of flatiron steak and fries. Portion size was larger than expected. Workers were all courteous and helpful. Restaurant was a few steps from the music center. Very convenient. Very busy. I advise you make reservations.

Great newly remodeled restaurant. The price is high but it’s nice quality. The service was quick and they really understand the importance of delivering the food quick as the majority of the visitors are on their way to the theatre. I got the octopus salad and ratatouille with the chocolate mousse for dessert and was very pleased with everything!

I’m a Francophile so it pains me to give any French-style restaurant a bad score but Kendall’s in March 2022 is neither worth the money nor the time you will spend waiting for service, for water, for your meal. And once the meal arrives, you’ll be sorely disappointed. We got the frites, a salad and the steak to split between two people. All were overpriced, very underwhelming in flavor and truly insanely overpriced for the quality of the food. The only thing I enjoyed were *some* aspects of the decor, the location (handy when you’re going to a an event downtown or at The Broad) and the brut rosé that we had. Two stars for that only.

Not so great experience. My girlfriend and I came here on Saturday afternoon after visiting The Broad. We were able to walk in and get a table for two outside, but the service was extremely slow and the food wasn’t satisfying at all. I ordered the flat iron steak frites and she got the farmhand greens and truffle fries. The steak was tasteless and borderline cold by the time it reached me, with a slice of solid garlic butter that should have been melted to baste the steak. The fries tasted like they were sitting out for too long.

Unfortunately the best part of the meal were our glasses of Brut Rose. Wouldn’t recommend coming here.

They fell off! I had to send my food back twice because it was cold. I'm not sure if our waitress was new or it was just not her day, but I just started grabbing any staff member to help me because I had a show to get to. Once my food was hot, it was good.

I ate here twice in one week before seeing shows at the Ahmanson and Mark Taper Forum, I loved it! Great cocktails, loved the brussel sprouts (shared them both nights) and had great meals! In addition, staff came by and cleared us (with wrist bands)for the shows!

Kendall's is the best place to go after work in Downtown LA for Happy Hour or just to hang with friends. It is also a great bar for anyone going to a show at the Music Center.

Having dinner there is the best. They start serving dinner right at 5 so you can easily make it to your performance at the Music Center. The staff knows curtain time and will make sure you have plenty of time to get where you are going. If you are not going to a show it is one of the best places for fine dinning in Downtown LA.

The menu is not huge, but everything on it is perfect. We have been a few times now and are working our way though the menu as well as the starters.

The staff is great and so very professional. They will take super good care of you. They check on you often and they know the menu well.

This latest time we tried their chicken dish which was amazing. It is a chicken breast, large, with crispy skin. Under that is fingerling potatoes, tomatoes and other great things, all in an amazing broth. We had to have their mussels, shrimp and other seafood in a rich broth again. It is my grandson's favorite and boy do you get a lot of seafood.

They just introduced a new Caesar salad, which might not sound like much, but it is truly the best Caesar salad I have ever had. It has this dressing that is just amazing and the Romine is so fresh and crisp. It also has kale on it, which my grandson took great care to remove--but he sure loved the rest of it as did I. It also has some anti pasto meats.

We tried their nuts for the first time. They come baked and in a little bowl with seasoning on them and they are fantastic. I never though I would order that as a starter, but it will now be ordered by us whenever we go. Their truffle fries are great and we love their coffee. Get their bread as well. It is worth it.

Their desserts are great, the best being their chocolate pot, which is so tasty. You will love this place.

Horrible re-opening after Covid. Have been coming to Kendalls as a season ticket holder at both the Ahmanson and Taper for more than 15 years. Was SO looking forward to returning -- what a huge disappointment. The "remodel" looks awful - totally haphazard and unfinished. They removed all of the old-world French charm and the new space feels physically jarring and totally disconnected (why keep the old flooring???). Design team Grade = F. Wait staff was also terrible and totally disorganized. Had 4 different people waiting on us so no real connection to anyone. No one refilled our waters, they are now charging for the bread (beyond distasteful), and I had to ask for a second glass of wine which I did not receive until 10 minutes prior to curtain. The food was sub-par and very disappointing. I brought a friend who had never been to the theatre before and was embarrassed when the food came.
We both had a steak salad that should have been simple and delicious but instead was overcooked, overdressed, paired with strange ingredients, and the portion size was too small for a proper entree. Kitchen and waitstaff Grade = D. What a waste of $150. Instead of trying so hard to "reinvent" themselves after Covid, I wish they would have dedicated themselves to making loyal patrons feel like they were coming home again. Hospitality Grade = F. Dreading going back.

One of those wonderful places where you never get a bad meal. Always packed but they always fit you in...excellent service to top off excellent food!
Great downtown location! Near everything...even theater. Patio el fresco dinning is an option.
The inside set-up rivals anything you might find in Europe. It's beautiful!
They have a huge full service bar and all the amenities of a world-class establishment.
On my top 10 best restaurants list! With pleasure!
