Loved Papilles! Focus is the food, with fresh and local ingredients within a small menu. All the food was great, served in a simple and casual environment where you chose your wine bottle from the rack. Very down to earth. And Noemi, a french american waitress was fab. Go there and concentrate on the food.

Hailes as one of LA's hidden gems, this mall strip joint turns out to be a big disappointment - an uncomfortable dining room run by unaccommodating servers is the backdrop for a $38 Prix-fFx menu. What sounds like an interesting bargain at first turns out to be something like a hoax since almost all of the menu items have an... More

Pah-PEE is how it's pronounced. Means "tastebuds" in French. Charming, intimate, and a top-flight chef--all the ingredients for a wonderful meal. They offer prix fixe dinners. We first enjoyed Papilles right after it opened. It was crowded and popular. We made a return trip tonight (a weeknight--just the right amount of buzz but quiet enough for conversation), and it was... More

I ight have rated this restaurant higher it I hadn't been hearing diners sing its praises for over a year. My husband and I were SOOO excited to finally have an opportunity to eat here. Unfortunately, I'd didn't live up to to its reputation. It is a fun quirky place, like a Frencb bistrot without the charm. It is in... More

I can't remember another restaurant that I've been to with such poor service. It may have jaded me to its other attributes. I ordered a steak for dinner. It came overcooked. I sent it back, but I told them to take their time and do it correctly. We were not in a rush. Needless to say, they rushed it so... More

This was our second visit here and both times have been perfect! A small restaurant with a fixed menu that you discover the choices when you arrive! Hard to choose but everything is delicious! The kitchen is visible and the staff very personable. Will be back on next visit to CA.

Sorry to all you locals who have been keeping this amazing restaurant a secret just for you trendy insiders! This restaurant hidden in plain site practically under the 101 freeway is great. The food is wonderful. The price is incredible for the quality. The service friendly and helpful. The wine is good and fairly priced. This is foodie food. So,... More

We enjoyed an early Saturday dinner at Papilles - the restaurant is located in the same strip mall as a donut and Thai restaurant; I wouldn't have found the bistro if not for its billboard sign touting the restaurant as the best hidden gem in Hollywood. As others have mentioned the food did not disappoint. We enjoyed a ceviche starter... More

amazing dinner in a very small restaurant. they are fantastic about managing people who have reservations - you never have to wait or you wait a total of 5 mins. The food is delicious and cooked in front of you. Wine selection is fantastic. It reminds me of a restaurant in NYC - very cozy and close to neighbors, but... More
