Some may debate my 5-star rating for "Value" because the Tuck Room is a bit pricey, but here is my basic reasoning: You get what you pay for! We've gone to the Tuck Room for New Years Eve, Easter, and Mother's Day for a couple years now and the food, ambiance and service is excellent and the overall experience have never disappointed. We even had our baby shower there and it was a huge success in large part to the awesome folks at the Tuck Room. The craft drinks and food is so good that the wife and I will occasionally walk in to the Tuck Room just to order their Wagyu Burger to go and have a drink while we wait for it.

Unbelievably noisy. Made a reservation but, upon arrival, told (after waiting 5 mins. for someone to show up at hostess station) that it didn't matter and it would be 30-40 mins. before my party (of only 2!) would be seated. After some struggle with host, which involved declining the high-top seats in bar-which I had specifically not selected when making reservation-we were seated in outside area which was cold, but quieter. The service was slow, but the server was attentive when available. The food was excellent, but I will not go back. The decor and ambience were unimpressive, and there are too many great restaurants in L.A. to "settle" for this.

Since it opened the Tuck Room Tavern has become our go to place for everything from a date night to Easter/Mother's Day Brunch and has never disappointed. We even held our daughter's baby shower there and it was a huge success.
The staff is like family, the food is to die for and the crafted cocktails are sublime. We are so fortunate to have such a great place so close to us that we can walk there!

This is a nice restaurant and the food is good. We were just pretty cold because the door to patio was left open and we couldn't seem to get it closed and as a result cold air was blowing on us all night.

First time, were really excited by the decor that I saw on yelp !
Unfortunately the experience was not the one that I was expecting...
Welcome pretty great, were able to change of table 2 times, special thanks to the hostess. I think that was the only positive point of the night.
In total 5 waiters, 1 hostess, 2 bartenders and 1 person who might be the manager for a floor that count 3 tables (8 pax). Spending more time to speak with each other that taking care of customers...
The first waiter was almost rude when we decided to order cocktail. I didn’t appreciate the way he was speaking to us, that’s why I decided to change of section.
The others were ok, except that we get food without silverware and wait for 10 min before getting the opportunity to wave a server...
The food was not tasty, too bad because the plates look actually good on picture...
Ordered the croquette: probably frozen from my point of view and a crab cake, not sure it contain crab.
When we were done with our main, we wanted to order some desert, but the server didn’t offer the opportunity at the moment and came back 15 min later to ask, too late for us we decided to leave.
It’s not because the activity is slow that it’s time to chill !! We will never come back or recommend it for sure.

The food was great, but the service was lacking. Took awhile to take our order. My friend wanted some hot tea, server came back after we order and said they had run out of tea pots. Asked if she wanted tea in just a glass.

My husband and I attempted to dine at Tuck Room Tavern on Friday, only to be deafened by the volume of the music. When you have to shout at your dining partner to be heard it doesn't bode well for a good meal. It was so loud, we couldn't stay long enough to order, because I was starting to get a headache, and I'm not prone to them. I've eaten a few times at this restaurant and have enjoyed the menu and the service, but this was intolerable, and I won't be returning. I think the management needs to decide if they're a restaurant or a nightclub.

Had tickets for the Geffen and wanted to try something different than Napa Valley for a change. Decided to just have a bunch of appetizers instead of a big meal. Cocktails were tasty and the big stand out was the Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps. Probably just getting old but the music was really loud! I'd try it again.

I love Tuck Room Tavern. The atmosphere is cozy, the food innovative and well prepared, and you couldn't ask for better service.

Having said that, the music is often much too loud to be able to hear your dining companion without raising your voice, and the noise really detracts from the overall experience. Please turn down the volume!

Had no idea that this restaurant was part of the IPic theatre venue when we made a reservation here. The perfect spot for a before or after movie drink, appetizer, or meal. Nice lounge area, our server was great,
and we enjoyed our meals. Will definitely return in the near future for a movie and meal, or just pop in for a drink and appetizers

Service was excellent. My fellow diners really enjoyed their meals. I found mine, Beast Burger, fries (for the table), and caesar salad mediocre. (Further, the Canadian bacon on the burger was tough--couldn't eat it; and anyway, Canadian bacon sounds like you're trying too hard. Go with regular bacon: it's always 'can't miss.') The dessert menu had no pizzazz, no appeal. I'd lower the volume on the music. Overall, I will try Tuck Room again.

Me & my GF went for Christmas Special dinner. The hostess seated us even though we arrived early which was appreciated. Food was excellent, service good, only minor complaint was proximity to other diners and
the sometimes loud noise level. Overall though it was a good experience and we ended up leaving satiated and happy...the wind outside was something else though, had to hold on to each other to keep from getting
blown away which actually was a pleasant if hilarious ending to our dinner and set the stage for the rest of
the night...... ;)

Horrible service. No one was at the restaurant. The food took forever, did not come out at the same time. All of our asks cane out to late. Ie by the time we got ranch dressing which we ordered with the meal, and then asked again when the meal came out, we were done with our meal when we arrived.
