    The restaurant was empty when I arrived to meet my friend. I was somewhat concerned since it was a Sunday evening, but I got totally distracted when the two man band was started playing some really nice jazz. The waitress was so sweet and courteous and we were given the best and friendliest service ever. The football game was on the TV’s which was a nice touch. I would definitely visit again.

    I should’ve known when there was a mixture of Mexican and soul food. Appetizers were fresh but my entree seemed like the were from the day before or older.

    Parking lot is small, but the restaurant is nice. I had two waitresses serving me which was odd because it wasn’t busy. One was really nice and the other not so much. The food was good, but the courses came out rapid fire and it was hard to eat that fast. The cake I had had been sitting out it was not moist at all.

    I’ve dined at Delicious several times. The food, drinks and service are good, consistently. My most recent visit we had a pleasant surprise, a wonderful jazz duo that provided a cool vibe to our brunch. We’ll definitely be back for Sunday brunch.

    You know, most people think it's easy to make breakfast, a coupla eggs, toast...I love have been going to the Crenshaw location for many years. I love the ambience here and the service was excellent. The food was amazing! and to turn it up a notch - they have cocktails! I look forward to being a regular at the Dunbar location and will certainly tell everyone I know to head on over. Thank you!

    Great service. Second time visiting. We arrived Sunday around 1 pm. Very busy time and Waite time was longer in comparison to visiting during the week. The food was very good and the servers were attentive. I have told many about the establishment and the history of the Dunbar Hotel. During the week when it’s less people you can enjoy the music playing. Bathroom was clean.

    The environment and service was great! Pricing for food wasn't too bad for L.A. area. I would recommend for the cornbread to be a little more sweet, it was a bit bland. Drinks were good as well.

    Went for the first time, ordered the dine L.A. lunch. We selected the fried chicken luncheon with sides of greens and macaroni and cheese with cornbread. The greens were delicious, and the mac and cheese had a good flavor but the consistency was a little runny. The chicken was tasty, but it was not hot--more like picnic chicken. I was also surprised to get a plastic "spork" to eat my dessert. The restaurant is beautiful, love the setup and really appreciated the free parking lot behind the restaurant.

    Great southern cooking, outstanding value. The restaurant has a cool, jazz-era vibe in a historic building with guest parking. Our server at lunch, Angie, was ever-so-gracious, despite her being the one worker serving about 6 tables. I am reticent to have this gem discovered by the masses, but the restaurant deserves success.
