The ribs are superb. The service is consistently good. Also try the artichoke if you can. The ambience is a bit noisy.

This is a constant in LA. Really consistently good food everytime I go and I go all the time. The location is not touristy so it has to be good. Many other places in the area close and this place stays because it is so good.

I have been going here for years and love this restaurant. My favorite item is the grilled artichokes which are hands down the best I have ever had. They have a wood rotisserie and know how to use it. The menu has a nice selection of fish, poultry and beef. The jazz groups that are usually playing make for a... More

Outstanding French dip sandwich and roast Castroville artichokes. The French dip is shaved prime rib on exquisite bread with horseradish sauce and au jus. One of our favorite meals in LA.

Nothing I hate more than constantly having to pay to valet. Sometimes it's such a joke, especially when restaurants take over public meter spaces for valet. Like we aren't paying top dollar already to eat out in LA? Anyway, it's my own personal hangup. But here in Brentwood it's $7 and then you need to tip. I don't know, I'd... More

I went to Bandera just before leaving Los Angeles and it definitively hit the spot. The food was amazing but the service was outstanding. We had the best cornbread of our lives and the ribs were perfect, tasty and tender. They also had a jazz band which made our experience even better. I strongly recommend this place. PD: Im not...

Casual dining. Live music at night. Busy and noisy on Friday night but food is good and not real expensive. Good Fries, Roast chicken that is moist, great burger.
