NOTE: Review is for Bottle Service
We ended up booking the Wilshire for my friend's going away a month back. We were promised a $750 minimum on the suite - alcohol included - the suite around 10, to 10:30 p.m. VIP passes (no cover/no waiting in line), and 40 people on guest list (no cover before 10:30, but no waiting required at all after wards).
When we got there, not only did we end up getting the suite more than an hour later than discussed - 11:45 p.m. after dinner guests whom we were not informed of earlier had left the venue - our guest list apparently closed at 10:30 p.m., meaning all of our 30+ guests who showed up after 10:30 that were INCLUDED on our guest list had to pay cover AND stand in the ridiculous Wilshire Saturday night line.
Also, as we had started our $750 tab at the bar due to getting our actual venue later than planned, our total bill came out to 1.5 times more than expected as they had split our tabs into two - one at the bar we started at and one at our bottle service area - which again, was against our requests of ensuring we did not order above a $750 minimum alcohol purchase (although we did get a comp'd bottle because of our late start - which was generous).
All in all, we had an amazing time only because of the group of people who had joined our party, and not because of the dissatisfying service we received from the GM's/staff/restaraunt overall that night.
This is a great place if your purpose is to join friends for a couple cocktails on a Saturday night, but I would recommend skipping out on this venue if your goal is to reserve it for a party, bottle service included.

Made a reservation using opentable and Wilshire called me to confirm the reservation so I was a bit surprised by the 30+ minute wait for my table. We were finally seated and all 4 chairs were so wobbly we all thought they would fall apart (seriously). Our server was terrible. None of us understood one word he said in his opening comments. He was miserable. If you are going to serve up a bunch of attitude and bad service you better have some seriously good food. Unfortunately the food at Wilshire is mediocre at best and not worth mentioning. With so many options for truly good food and good service there is no reason to ever return to Wilshire.

I came here last week to watch the Lakers game for Happy Hour. Not only did I have great service, but the food was delicious!!!! I would recommend the blue cheese burger if you are looking for something flavorful and filling and to drink I would recommend their margarita! Yum.
