What an incredible experience. Greeted immediately upon entering by the manager as the hostess had to step away. Promptly seated. Fun and interchangeable wait staff took care of our every need. Ordered many dishes to share among 4 family members. Everything was top notch. Loved the egg yolk gnocchi especially. Excellent cocktail menu. We dined in October and I see... More

Doing my research for molecular gastronomy places in Los Angeles, I came across the restaurant, ink. It received good reviews so I thought I’d pay a visit. Located in West Hollywood, ink. is situated on Melrose Ave in a trendy part of town.

My first time here was when they first opened--excellent meal and excellent service. We heard they had recently changed their menu, so we were excited to visit again. The service is still very good, but it is very difficult to justify the prices for a meal we could have made better at home for a fraction. Presentation was sloppy, food... More

Finally was able to get a reservation at Ink. My friends and I were seated immediately and the service was impeccable. From beginning to end, we were pampered with friendly, yet professional staff. Now for the menu...wow! So many uniquely creative dishes to choose from, we had to try at least 10! My favorites were:"Watermelon Pretending to be a Tomato"... More

Went with a couple friends and tried practically the whole menu family style. The charcoal potatos were yummy, oysters were ridiculous, egg yolk gnocchi forget about it, branzino was pretty good but I am a hard critic, the short rib was perfection. I would go back in a heartbeat

Great place with really good standard on both food and drinks, I highly recommend this place. It is really good to share some dishes with your friends for a great social eating experience. Ps. The restaurant was a bit cold so I recommend wearing a jacket so you don't get cold.

Ink is one of the best restaurants in LA. Everything I had was incredibly delicious, from the drinks to the appetizers and the main dishes. Im not an expert but it seems to me that the menu is design in a way that provides an opportunity to try many items, since the portions aren't huge and the price isn't excessive.... More

We had a great table in the restaurant and I really enjoyed the vibe and overall decor of the restaurant. The service was very good and super friendly. Our waitress really knew her wine and we were not disappointed. Since I cannot have gluten there were several things I could not have so my husband and I ordered effectively separate... More

The place was up to my expectations with mostly hits and just a couple of misses. Decoration is simple and seats a little uncomfortable. Service is amazing, welcoming and friendly. About the food: Portions are good, even some too big. We ordered seven plates to try many different things. Here is my review from top to bottom, top 3: 1.... More

He had an evening meal here with some friends. The food was great but seriously overpriced This may have an effect in the long run people like value for money

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
