Laurel TavernAdd to mybook
That's a double negative. (""YOU'RE a double negative"" --Crazy Stupid Love) I rarely use double negatives, but I am making an exception here. I have never had a bad time or a bad meal at Laurel Tavern. Eric the bartender/manager is excellent - friendly, knowledgeable, helpful - they were out of the beer I wanted so he poured me four samples of beers he thought I might like. He also let us try his cherry infused b... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
Laurel Tavern is a small bar with great ambiance, service, and food. The beer selection isn't huge but what they do have is good. It can get crowded to the point of standing room only on Fridays and weekends, but the people are generally friendly and don't mind rubbing elbows.Like this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
My friend has been raving about this place so we all decided to get together for a pre New Year's outing. Everyone else was already there and got a table for our party of 8. Me and my bf got there about 10 min late. My friend came outside to get us and told the door guy we already had a table but he said we had to wait in line. Kinda didn't see the point, but ok fine, there was only about 6 ppl in line anyways. Well ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
This place used to be great! Now it's terrible. The food is fine/satisfactory and I have no complaints about the beer.
However, it seems this place has made the attempt to create a ""club"" type business. A waiting line outside, when there is room inside is ridiculous.
I am(was) a regular until last Sat night. About 30 ofus walked over from CBS at 10pm and were made to wait outside. There was plenty of room, but t... view more
This place is very pleasant. Nice lighting, fantastic food and a huge selection of beer and wine. They have a sage microbrew, which is delicious, and a wonderful and original spin on the classic grilled cheese sandwich.\r
The crowd is a little more mature than the I-just-turned-21-and-I-can't candle-it or the I-heart-Cahuenga Corridor folks. The best way to describe this place is ""chill"". Probably a great plac... view more
the place feels like a trendy NY pub but upscale, light wood, industrial steel throughout -- not fancy but warm and trendy looking. the windows that face ventura blvd open all the way so you kind of feel like you're in an indoor/outdoor space which is nice. lots of choices for unique microbrews -- my fave was ""Hollywood Blonde"" but they try new ones a lot so they're not offering that one right now but lots of goo... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
This place is almost perfect - nary a Bud or Miller to be found on the beer list, and the steak fries with pork fat are beyond amazing. A friend of mine said they served the best grilled artichoke she'd EVER had. Sadly, I've ordered burgers there twice and was somewhat disappointed both times. The last go around I ordered the bacon blue cheese burger and was hard-pressed to find any blue cheese on it; medium rare ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
