The flagship Wolfgang Puck restaurant offers cuisine that is at the forefront of the Los Angeles culinary scene. Executive Chef Lee Hefter is both inventive and playful, creating masterful combinations of the freshest and finest ingredients. Famous dishes include the Handmade Agnolotti with mascarpone, Chino Farms Roasted Beet Layer Cake, and Prime Côte du Boeuf for Two. The menu changes seasonally to showcase the best of California’s produce, and the Chef’s eight-course tasting menu is an ideal way to sample the best that Hefter has to offer at any one time. The chic restaurant is also known for its celebrity spotting, including Wolfgang Puck himself.
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.
Came over from the UK where we are spoiled with fantastic restaurants however Spago really does hit the spot. Great food, great service.
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.
We loved the evening, the ambiance and the wait staff. The bread server was a wonderfully charming man who made us laugh all nite.
Our experience was wonderful, every dish from start to finish was AMAZING. Chatting with Wolfgang about the preparation made the evening unforgetable.
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 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.
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.
