“Try the Jalle Berry cocktail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2012

Everything here is great. The food, the drinks, the service, and the decor. The tapas were a lot more filling that we expected, so consider that when ordering. Everything is great though, so try as much as you can.

“excellent creations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

It's a vibrant mix of sophisticated cuisine and playful lounge spaces where dining transcends into fête extraordinaire.

I have been here twice and just love the food. The chef does an excellent job at creating unique dishes. I specially love the air bread. It's light and filled with hot cheese. Just delicious.

The Sweet Potato Chips is served with Yogurt, tamarind, star anise is delicious. The yogurt adds t o the overall flavors. There are plenty of vegetarian options as well. Not only is the food delicious, the creations are very unique and delightful.

Their deserts are nothing special. I would totally skip it!
Overall a fun place with excellent decor, food and ambiance. Perfect for a special occasion.

“What a Joke”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2012

But I wasn't laughing. This place is over hipped, overpriced and over rated. I'm a tapas fan. I love Rivera in Downtown LA and Pica on the west side. Bazaar is horrible. Let me start by saying that our server was great. Friendly, fun and attentive. The restaurant is way too loud. Restaurant designers put their vision in front of the dining experience and that's sad. Too many hard surfaces leads to poor acoustics. Cocktails, when served up should be ice cold. Ours were not. The presentation of the food is interesting and different but the taste is horrible. One dish after the next was bad, bad, bad. It finally became laughable. Upon leaving we entered into a seen of getto fabulous (not my scene).

“Worth the wait, but not the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012

Knew nothing about the place beforehand so were in for a surprise. Our host left the choice of tapas to the waiter and we had a huge variety of bite size tastes. The Caprese Salad was a winner, but it all came at a huge price tag. The restaurant was packed mainly with yuppies who seemed to eat and drink little but perhaps they just wanted to be seen.

“Great food, worst service ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

The food was excellent, but the service is so bad we will never return. We had to wait for 30 minutes after our confirmed reservation time. Then we also had to wait to be taken to the dessert section. Despite this they acted as if nothing was going wrong. It seems like they make an effort to make people feel unappreciated.
