Fodor's Review

Chef-owner Mark Peel has mastered the mix of robust Mediterranean flavors with homey Americana. The 1926 building (which once housed the offices of Charlie Chaplin) exudes a lovely Renaissance charm, and Campanile is one of L.A.'s most acclaimed and beloved restaurants. Appetizers may include duck meatballs or a pretty bibb lettuce and herb salad, while wild striped sea bass with cherry tomatoes and grilled pork chop with wild mushrooms are likely to appear as entrées.

Thursday night, grilled cheese sandwiches are a huge draw, as the beloved five-and-dime classic is morphed into exotic creations. For an ultimate L.A. experience, come for weekend brunch on the enclosed patio.

Horrible Brunch experience

Our brunch experience this past Sunday was horrendous. We were seated next to the area where the servers pick up their orders from the kitchen, which wasn't the main issue. The server we had was completely disinterested from the beginning. He paid little attention to our table and although there were only two of us, I received the wrong entree despite confirming I'd ordered something different. I realize there was a large party at the restaurant

from Loyola but that did not mean that we should have been treated as a burden. The worst part was that we could clearly see our server the entire time. He almost never made eye contact with our table with further infuriated me. I will never return this restaurant despite the fact that the food was actually very good. Save your money and your time...don't go here.

Nickel and Dime GREED - Average Food

$10.50 for a draft beer. They charge $3.50 extra if you want olive oil on your tiny salad and $1.00 if you want mustard on your $14 grilled cheese sandwich. I had the patty melt for $18 and would've prefered a coffee shop substitute instead. This place used to be good 13 years ago when I lived nearby, but now this BUST OUT JOINT just wants to nickel and dime its customers and doesn't care if anyone without an expense account returns. ALSO, this TOILET

is so NOISY that I couldn't speak to my wife sitting next to me, much less my in-laws across the table or even the waiter. NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN! NEVER AGAIN!

The standards are above standard

I thought this restaurant was very good. The dishes were simple takes on standards: lamb, steak, fish, short ribs, etc. with little creativity but very tasty cooking. The wine list doesn't taste good until the $60 range which is annoying. Overall an expensive, uncreative but very tasty evening.

Almost Perfect but Expensive

Everything we've eaten here is well prepared and well served. Its more reasonable for lunch and you still get great food. I loved the roast chicken.
