The Best by Far !  

I couldn't have asked for a finer dining experience, I brought my two young children with me to introduce them to the world of fine dining, and what a choice I made. From the time we entered to the time we left, absolute attention to every detail, and service, beyond anything I expected. The children were treated like Kings, And the food was superb, The winter green salad was the best salad Ive ever tasted with flavors and textures layered throughout. Luck was with us and the kids got to meet Wolfgang, who was very gracious and spoke to the boys at length, Definately a memorable day for myself as well as the children.

Simply Excellent  

Being from Montreal, I planned to "experience" this well known restaurant for myself.... The service, food and ambiance is simply superb.......I would recommend everyone to "go feel and taste the difference".....my special date was very impressed and I will cherish our experience along with the picture taken with Wolfgang.....Thanks Spago !!!!

DELIGHTFUL LA DINING EXPERIENCE!  

In June 2007, my sister and I made dinner reservations online several days in advance before our first trip to LA. We received a confirmation call from Spago the day prior to our reservations. Upon arrival at Spago, we were greeted warmly and seated promptly at our reserved time in the main area of the dining room. Our waitress (and other table servers) were very attentive and treated us with respect. We were very impressed with the service and the food was excellent!!

It was fun to dine in this "famous" restaurant in Beverly Hills. Unfortunately, no celebrity sightings for us this night; however to be honest, even if a celebrity was sitting right next to us, I am not sure if we even would have noticed. We were completely wrapped up in enjoying our wonderful food and conversation.

NOTE: VERY CASUAL DRESSING by dinner diners, was not expecting that.

exceptional experience  

We treated ourselves and our daughters to lunch at Spago. The cuisine, staff, atmosphere, and attention to detail were exceptional. The experience was truly memorable. Book early for a view from the patio!

Great food, great service  

Came over from the UK where we are spoiled with fantastic restaurants however Spago really does hit the spot. Great food, great service.

Spago on Canon Superb  

Excellent venue, high end in terms of price but it delivers in terms of food quality and excellent service. The wine list is amazing. Would highly recommend for a special evening in Beverly Hills.

Romantic, charming and elegent  

We loved the evening, the ambiance and the wait staff. The bread server was a wonderfully charming man who made us laugh all nite.

A visiit from Wolfgang...  

Our experience was wonderful, every dish from start to finish was AMAZING. Chatting with Wolfgang about the preparation made the evening unforgetable.

Nice, but?  

We were late for our reservation, but the hostess was exceptionally pleasant about it, and seated us at the best table in the house. Our waiter was extremely well-mannered and pleasant. The lunch menu was extensive and an array of selections; however, the Grilled Loin's presentation with pesto spread over the top was not eatable. My southern lady guest took two bits and had to push it away. I actually tasted it, and wished I hadn't. My calves liver was absolutely out of this world. All servers were outstanding, and we never felt rushed. We looked at the desserts, but nothing to our liking. Shameful, because I love dessert after lunch. Great bar, and a wonderful selection of vodkas.

Spago  

Spago is clip, efficient and unobtrusively formal. The food is excellent, served quickly but not rushed. The staff have a good balance between respectful and friendly. My only complaint is that it felt a little cramped as if I was dining in a corridor, which I probably only noticed because I was dining alone and would have preferred a better view.

Excellent service  

Wonderful!

Overrated  

We dined here on 01-27-07. Being an LA native and my husband from NYC, we expected something classic. I'm sorry to report that we've dined at better restaurants all over the country. I appreciate that they sat us in a booth, but generally, the food did not distinguish itself. The famous salmon and cream cheese pizza is great; the walnut and olive breads also memorable. But considering what we ordered, that doesn't say very much. More than that, we loathed the service; it was cold and impersonal. The hostess murmured a few words directing us to wait at the bar to be seated, swiftly looking down again. She failed to notice that we carried two heavy coats wet from the rain, while the coat rack stood directly behind her. We didn’t like that at all. Our waiter, who served an accomplished doctor and his wife, gave us the impression we were a slight bother, but that it was his magnanimous duty to serve us. This is a hard-to-prove observation, but we found him dull and uptight. The next evening we dined at Frito Misto and quickly understood why Spago was unimpressive to us - it exudes attitude without passion. We don't feel we're being unfair to Spago. It just failed big with us, when I'm sure others continue to have good experiences. Until ours wears off, we will stick with the subtle places we find truly magnanimous.

Poor Service, Good Food  

I went to Spago for the first time last month and with all the hype I was really looking forward to an excellent dining experience. Our reservations were for 8:00 p.m. but we didn't get seated until about half an hour later. Once we were seated we didn't have our drink orders taken for another 20-30 minutes and our waiter didn't take our meal order until about an hour after we were seated. The food was excellent but after being there for two and half hours and barely being attended to by our waiter we did not have any patience left to even order dessert for fear it might take another hour. This was a Tuesday night and it was a complete let down to all the wonderful things that I had heard about this place.

Decent, but you will pay alot for what you get!  

I think the meal at Spago tasted good, but definitely over priced for what you get. $17 for a hunk of romaine lettuce w/caeser dressing on the side. Not even a crouton, parmesan cheese or tomato on the plate! Service took a LONG time to get our appetizers and then our meal. A place to try once maybe,spend your $ at the steakhouses who give you a big steak or piece of fish for $48 and not 8 square pieces of meat cut up. So many other places to eat great meals in LA where you get food for your $$. Overall, small portions, very expensive and I left feeling a little bit cheated.
