7450 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036
My friend recommended BLD, so my boyfriend and I checked it out. What an expensive disaster it turned out to be! It was a busy night when we got there, so the long wait wasn't a surprise. Once we were seated, I realized how close the tables are to each other. I heard intimate details of conversations I should not have been able to hear. I also noticed that TWO tables that were seated after us were served a good 10 minutes before us. Once the food FINALLY came, my boyfriends food was so disgusting that he sent it back. (I've NEVER seen this man refuse food!) The waitress was nice about it, but his replacement plate took an additional 20 MINUTES to come out. We were both eating my plate because we were starving to death, and it was long gone before his came back. At this point, the restaurant was nearly empty as it was nearing closing time. Those two tables I mentioned that were seated after us left 30-45 minutes before we did. To add salt to the wound, the tab was over $100.00 for two entrees, an appetizer, and two sodas. The whole experience was so ridiculous, I would deter anyone else from going, and I refuse to go despite my living a few blocks away. Too many great restaurants in LA to waste your time here.
