Nestled on the ground floor of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Joachim Splichal’s haute restaurant hums with perfectly-harmonized service and plates with a perfect symphony of flavors. Since 1989, Splichal has been serving exquisite contemporary French fare of the caliber usually reserved for healthy expense accounts. The signature Seasonal Glazed Vegetable Mosaic ($19) is virtuosic, a work of edible art. But you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, so go for the $115 prix-fixe tasting option, allowing the kitchen to orchestrate the perfect meal.

I don't think I've had better service anywhere else in LA. Patina excels at fine-dining and all that encompasses: exceptional service, amazing wine, a tasting menu that boggles your mind and a setting that makes you feel so many feelings (mostly, "I can't believe I'm here"). It's a shame that most people view it as TOO white tablecloth, TOO hoity-toity, because it's really not. Yes, you're going to be dropping a chunk of change here, but it's well worth it, and the staff makes you feel incredibly comfortable and welcome.
