Fodor's Review

Opened by chef Joachim Splichal, Patina occupies a coveted location inside the Frank Gehry–designed Walt Disney Concert Hall. The contemporary space, surrounded by a rippled "curtain" of rich walnut, is an elegant, dramatic stage for the acclaimed restaurant's contemporary French cuisine. Patina offers three- to eight-course tasting menus. The seasonally changing specialties might include langoustine and bone marrow, a variation of suckling pig served six ways, and the 63°C Duck Egg, with duck bacon, soubise, and a rosemary smoked-potato mousseline Kataifi nest. Finish with a hard-to-match cheese tray—orchestrated by a genuine maître fromager (cheese master), no less—and the fromage blanc soufflé served with house-made bourbon ice cream.

One of the best places to eat in this world

This restaurant is simply outstanding even compared with the best this world has to offer. We know nearly all the most acclaimed restaurants in the world from old (and even new) world three star (guide Michelin)restauarants allover Europe to places like Jean Georges in New York and many more. We had the four course lunch menu (at $49 a true bargain) with 4 glasses of matching wines (at $25 nearly a gift) wonderfully prepared and presented outstanding

quality of products and preparation. Service got (after beeing asked for) the right slow space for a restaurant of this class. So we spend two and a have hours of almost orgasmic delights of smell and taste and with champagne as Apéritif two 1,0 litre bottles of San Pellegrino 8 generously poured glasses of delightful wines 3 espressi after lunch, we spend ridiculous amount of $250 (generous tip included) for the two of us. Whenever we'll come back to LA Patina is the place for heavenly cooked meals.
