It was disappointing and overpriced. Many places categorized this as a French restaurant but it is not a French restaurant. I had a birthday dinner for my girl friend on Sunday night with high expectation. The restaurant has a nice ambiance but the service was not that great. It wasn't bad but with the high price I pay, I would expect much higher level of service. The server misinformed us about the food item and we didn't get what we wanted. However, the menu is so limited and there was no other choice once we discovered the item was not what the server described. I was told when I made the reservation is that the restaurant has the same owner and same chef as the Next Door. However, I found out after eating there is that this place has an overpriced menu but not the same type of "French" food I could find next door. The food was average. Bottom line, I wouldn't come back or recommend this restaurant because it is overpriced, mis-categorized, and average service.
The only way to get real authentic and delicious pupusas, is to have a freind or family member whose origins are from el salvador.....the process they go through once a year to make the tamales ( nothing like mexican tamales ) and pupusas, is painstaking and time consuming....as many el salvadorians restaurants as there are in los angeles, few if any, make them the way they're made in the homes of those whose tradition it is, to go through this social event....having said that....the pupusas are fairly good here....like many latin restaurants, they tend to cook everything OVER-WELL.... the puree beens are good......the service is fair to good here ...but they dont let you switch much on the menu....the place is clean and now they've added a bar... 4 is probably a bit too high, I actually say 3-1/2 is closer to right...
