Located in Downtown L.A.'s landmark Walt Disney Concert Hall, Patina defines luxury dining in Los Angeles. A Michelin-starred, Relais & Chateax restaurant, Patina is renowned as one of L.A.'s finest and most elegant dining destinations for its ideal balance of superior service, creative cuisine, outstanding atmosphere and comfort. From the seasonal tasting menus and daily chef's menu to the decadent cheese carts and award-winning wine list, Chef Joachim Splichal and his culinary team continue to create exceptional dining experiences. Patina also features an impressive bar for guests to enjoy a late-night cocktail and a stylish patio for al fresco dining.
Even just enjoying appetizers and desserts seems like a luxurious experience.

This risotto was just okay - the rice was too firm for my taste (tasted like it was undercooked), and the taste was leaning towards the too-cheesy side. For my entree, I had the Peking duck. This dish was good, but not outstanding in my opinion compared to duck I have had in other restaurants, particularly in Chinese ones. I also felt that there was more duck than there was crepe and leeks to complement. After my entree, I had a plate of 3 cheeses. The cheeses that I had were enjoyable, but once again, did not seem particuarly special. This by no means is to say that their cheese selection is not good - it is very extensive. The service of the man (more like a kid) serving the cheeses certainly left something to be desired, which was the general c
One of the pleasures of dining at Patina is their incredible food and the sophisticated yet comfortable ambience. The service is not to go unmentioned with an attentive wait staff eagerly catering to your needs. For a memorable night of dining excitement try Patina!
Had supper last night. Soup was tepid at best and poorly described by the waiter. The waiter was lacking in attentiveness and was more interuptive than need be. He made the meal very uncomfortable. Needs to be honed in people skills.
