    Probation’s brunch is awesome!!! We highly recommend the birria (anything)! The green sauce has a terrific spice to it, too. The huevos rancheros were tasty as was the heart attack burger. The waffles were a bit tough and we don’t recommend those. The bottomless mimosas - perfect! While under 21 can come and have brunch, I would reconsider that option. When we return, it will be adults only. The hostess and wait staff were attentive and pleasant and offered honest recommendations for the food choices. I look forward to our return with more family and friends. The ambiance is terrific and the drinks were spot on for all of us!!! Everything was so good, I forgot to take pics of the food!!!🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️. Next time!!

    I really enjoyed the Prohibition LA service that I received. I brought a group of 11 and the restaurant was extremely accommodating! The inside is super picturesque and the food was great. They are strict on their table limit (which was clearly written out and understandable), so make sure when your time is up, you're ready to go.

    Food was delicious, but tables are very close together and the restaurant is very loud. We visited at 9:30 and it was jumping - but it's a good energy, with a DJ and a fire-swallowing gal who went around the restaurant performing. Just don't expect that you will be able to hear your friend across the table. There is a speakeasy downstairs that we peeked into that looked cozy and fun, but we didn't have time to stay.

    Service was a bit slow given the restaurant wasn’t full. Food was okay. Drinks are good and it’s very upbeat. Can be really loud at times as there’s a DJ but place is relatively small.

    The environment is lively and celebratory. There’s a fire dancer, dj, and a lot of energy overall. When I first arrived I was a bit annoyed with the fact there’s only 1 valet. But he worked diligently and I only waited about 10 minutes. I was also late for my reservation so I appreciate the restaurant still accommodating me. The food was just okay. We may have just ordered the wrong dishes (pasta and wings). My drink was incredible- the east sider. All in all, I’d definitely come back to try happy hour.

    Overall bad experience! Service was slow, cocktails took over 30 min & must have been sitting at the bar for a while, I say this because the large ice cube was melting and watering down the over sweet old fashion I ordered. Food was low quality and over cooked. The manager finally took over for our server but it was too late to salvage the experience. If these people don't get it together they won't be open much longer....

    Ambiance is cool and sheik. Cocktails are good. Food….don’t bother. Wings were dry, sliders were nothing special, cous cous was way over cooked, and the salmon had cumin..WTH? Cumin on salmon?! It was gross. The Cesar salad was swimming in dressing..way over dressed. I’d come here for drinks but not the food. It seems they are stuck with trying to be a club and restaurant at the same time.

    Waiter aside it was a brutal meal. Ordered espresso martinis that were the worst I’ve tasted. Reluctantly sent them back because we hate sending anything back, waiter luckily swapped them with other drinks at no cost. Unfortunately the other drinks we ordered off their menu were so sweet we couldn’t finish them. Food was also terrible… I tried the bbq burger and it was very well done with charred bacon. Final bill was ~$125 for two apps, two drinks, and two burgers, with 20% tip auto-included.

    Overall great environment,seating is awkward. I would not go for dinner it’s more for drinks and the environment. My date ordered a filet mignon it was poor, salty, dry, with no flavor it was disappointing but the ambiance and the drinks were pleasant. I ordered salmon with vegetables it was flavorless and the vegetables were plain. Like I said I wouldn’t eat there again but I’ll probably go for a drink.There’s valet in the front for 15$ cash only.

    I booked a reservation based on Open Table reviews. I was visiting from Northern California and was in town for the Rock Hall induction ceremony. My husband and I wanted ti spend a date night before the party weekend began. We shared the truffle fries, salmon and yellowtail dishes. I had a salad and he had a steak which he said was cooked to perfection. The drinks and ambiance were fun. Just what we needed to kick off a fun weekend with friends!

    Sometimes in LA you sacrifice good food for good ambience. However, Proabition offered both at a really enjoyable level. Service was also pretty great! Highly recommend this spot for a night out with friends or a special occasion as they have many different celebratory offerings for birthdays and anniversary’s! Also, their speakeasy downstairs was super nice, ambient, and air conditioned! Well done Proabition!!!

    Advertised as Alice in Wonderland themed, but it’s barely. Nice, and different, but upside down lamps don’t quite cut it. The food was good, the service attentive - decent options for happy hour too. Maybe the downstairs bar is more decorated, but it wasn’t open when we were there.

    Made reservations for 2 people for 10:15 wasn’t seated until about 10:45. They advised us to sit at the bar, wasn’t acknowledged at the bar until the hostess sat another couple. The mac n cheese and the endless summer drink was really good. We ordered our steak medium but received it well done. Overall the vibes were nice. We may or may not visit again.

    I had a great first experience eating at Proabition. All of the pertinent boxes for a pleasant evening were checked! The speakeasy in the basement provided a great space to talk and enjoy a beverage after dinner upstairs. There were several BDays being recognized while we ate dinner so the noise levels were a bit high but that did not takeaway from the overall experience. I would mention to folks that the address is in Skid Row and not Little Tokyo.
