The food was superb. I’d eat that ceviche and gnocchi every night!!! I’m a total foodie and it was one of my all time best meals ever!!!
I’ve been to Otium more than a dozen times. And every time it’s amazing. From presentation to complementary favors, it’s always a fantastic culinary experience! Thank you Otium!
Excellent service, drinks, food and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Really amazing. Loved everything we tried from the naan with chicken liver mousse to the grilled shrimp, the octopus and the pasta. Had very good wine suggestions from super-friendly sommelier Tiffany. Great staff, great experience.
Sat outside for my son’s Birthday. Perfection!
The food was amazing but the service was okay, I waited almost 10-15 minutes just to get my check until I got up and asked the hostess myself for the check.
Incredibly beautiful space, and the food is outstanding, but their cocktails are out of this world!
The food was amazing! Steven new about all the dishes and great great recommendations for what to have!
And the food was delicious
The experience was great overall. My partner and I really enjoyed their service and food. However, we noticed that we were seated in the section along with other minority groups. I’m hoping it was a coincidence but didn’t feel too good about the separation.
Everything about Otium is top level, from the cocktails to the food and especially the service. Unfortunately we were placed next to the window in the back overlooking the construction on the Metro which wasn't ideal but all in all it was a great experience.
Everything was great. From service to the food. Made our special night perfect!
Sat at the chef’s table for our one year wedding anniversary with our parents. We absolutely loved our experience! Delicious, fresh ingredients with a reimagined take on seemingly typical dishes. Will definitely be coming back!
Matthew was an excellent server! We enjoyed everything. We did feel the prices were quite high- especially the wine by the glass.
But all in all, it was an excellent experience.
We went prior to the theater- perhaps consider an early bird pricing for the theater.
Food, drinks, and service were fantastic!
My favorite spot downtown. A 10.
Awesome food!.. I love the “ sharing” idea.. I live next door at the Emerson during the week and usually sit at the bar to eat. The bartenders are really good and the waiters and waitresses in the dinning rooms “get it” when I bring clients and my family!... They make it special!
Food and service was AH-mazing and the staff was so nice and accommodating. Drink menu was a little overwhelming with no substitutes so my girls and I had some wonderful wine. Everything was delicious!
Great food and service as usual
Absolutely amazing! We will be back soon!! Best dinner we have ever had! The Elote Agnolotti is to die for!
Celebrated a late birthday with phenomenal food & cocktails. Elevated LA cuisine at its finest.
Exceptional food and service. The sommelier is particularly amazing. The only criticism I have is that the desert is pretty average. We'll definitely return.
We had an amazing experience! We felt taking care of and catered to in a genuinely hospitable way. The service and food were beyond expectation.
We have been to Otium several times and love it more each time. Wonderful dining experience
Not what expected underwhelming will not be back anytime soon
Creative yummy menu, very nice ambiance, excellent service. Pasta portion could have been a little large, but I would go back for sure!
It was hard to find the place because there wasn’t a sign on the building. However, the truffle fires made everything better! The kale salad with salmon was also delicious.
We made a reservation for 1pm. It was communicated to us that there was an event that afternoon. The service was extremely rushed. It would have been better to have been notified so we may have had the option to come earlier or reschedule to a later date.
Our waiter was outstanding. He answered all of our questions and helped us make great food and beverage selections.
Just wow. The food was awesome but what was even more awesome is the wonderful diverse staff. Every single person was awesome. The food was so amazing we cannot wait to come back.
Each course on the extensive menu was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. Started with Naan bread with truffle butter and Wagu beef tartare, both unique and delicious. Grilled prawns served on an actual charcoal brazier-amazing! Rigatoni with basil sauce and pistachios was delicious and the pork chop with horseradish spaetzle and beet reduction was outstanding! Excellent service and a helpful sommelier made it a wonderful anniversary dinner. Just enough for the two of us.
Otium always delivers above and beyond the expectations. It’s on the pricey side but worth every dollar. The food is amazing and so are the cocktails. We definitely return very soon..
Everything was fantastic. Food was outstanding. Basil pasta amazing!!!
Awsome experience. Restaurant lives to its hype.
The servers and staff were amazing and the food even better. Loved every part of it!!
This review is simple... The food and beverages, outstanding. We came, fully expecting to be impressed, and the food fully lived up to our lofty expectations! Chicken Liver Mousse with Housemade Naan... terrific! Bucatini was great, and the Scallops were perfectly prepared!
However, our service was... lackluster, to be kind. We were seated out in the corner of the patio, and it was quite breezy that evening. I asked our server if the heater could be turned on slightly, but that request fell upon deaf ears, or more accurately, busy ears. The gentleman serving us seemed rushed and spread thin. His menu recommendations came across are robotic. I even tried to interact with him during one description, and his facial expression and body language made me feel as though I was being rude for interrupting his "spiel".
We chose Otium because it is the favorite of a fellow Executive Chef, who is friends with your Chef there, and it was my Wife's choice for her Birthday. As I stated previously, bravo to the Chef and his brigade. STELLAR flavors and presentations.
Do not be mistaken, my wife and I will be back. Probably for lunch, probably for brunch, and perhaps just to sit at the bar for a nosh...
But I will NOT spend my resources on a dinner, that only fulfills one portion of the experience that should be fulfilled, in an operation as beautiful as yours.
Thank you for your time. Your courtesies are greatly appreciated.
We had an incredible experience from the FOH to the BOH.
The service was wonderful, the food was fabulous & the cocktails were amazing.
We had a great time here for dinner before going to see a play.
Trying too hard.
Did not like food.
Should be more simple.
Amazing! Hollingsworth delivers!
