This was a very nice experience. Wolfgang himself gave me the reservation and a bottle of champagne for a speical occassion.
From the time you pull up and the vallet is off with your car till the time you leave you really enjoy yourself. Even to the camera flashing at the front door waiting for all the celebrities to come out... We were seated next to Kenny G... and often scanned the room for other people we might know...
The food of course was great! We had our five course meal and enjoyed every last bite... we even tried the liver patte but I decided quickly I dont like liver... but it's heard they have the best... so if you like that kind of thing you should try it!! The food was mouth watering the scene was chic and the services was fabulous... Again Wolfgang you have outdone yourself!

Really, we have yet to have an ""LA"" experience here, which is the ultimate complement. There is thought and consideration in both the level of service as well as the preparation and presentation of the dishes.
It is refreshing to see an established restaurant that does not rest on its laurels and rely on celebrity name dropping for its appeal.
Try the heirloom tomato salad for a sample of the complexity of flavors the chef has to offer.

Whenever you have a chance to visit an iconic place that serves you in the proper manner, with not necessarily the best food, but the best service; I'd say you should highlight it and make note for others.
To elaborate, the food at Spago is first rate, especially the pastry chef's creations. A real highlight is the simplicity and decadent flavor that makes me want to return again and again.
Sure, sometimes Spago is a bit hoity toity but we were always made felt welcome and that just is the way it should be.

I am a super picky maybe the pickiest eater ever yet I couldn't find a single thing wrong with anything I ordered here. Had a perfect anniversary dinner recently, wine menu is extensive and the somelier is very very helpful. Waiting staff is there when you need it but they don't bother you with constant stares. And most importantly the food is just beyond perfect.
However, I think It's time for them to hire an interior designer, the place kinda looks outdated.... Its almost 2010 guys....

Spago was once an amazing dining experience. Now it seems like the last Bastion for a bankrupt Wolfgang Puck: the food is not very good at all. Consistently over salted and watery. Deserts are better. The Dobos torte is better than its Hungarian creators could ever make. Front door person had an attitude and made us wait at the bar even thought the restaurant was half empty.

My 16 year old daughter opted for a trip to California (from NY) instead of a party. Spago was on her ""Bucket List."" After looking at the menu on line, I thought she would be disappointed. I was WRONG! I took her and two of her friends to dinner. They had NO problem choosing appetizers and dinner! One of her friends is in cooking school and was mesmerized by the view into the kitchen! The staff could not have been friendlier! The highlight of the evening was, of course, when Wolfgang Puck came over to the table and introduced himself and chatted with the girls. He graciously took a photo with them as well.
As for the food...I had the artichoke soup and it was beyond delicious! I can honestly say...I have never tasted anything quite like it! It is a MUST have! The girls all had the risotto - my favorite - and it was outstanding! You could definitely taste the wood fired brick oven! For an entree, we had the duck - very, very good!! - the salmon - excellent! But...by far, the best was the chicken with black truffles!
We shared the cookies for dessert and they were beyond incredible! I was worried that the restaurant wouldn't live up to our expectations but it exceeded them! DEFINITELY worth the trip! And...btw...it was the best $$$ we spent for a meal in California! Worth every penny!
