molecular gastronomy to make his tapas exciting. One of my favorites was the spherified olives - some sort of intense olive/anchovy flavor encased in an edible sphere that burst in your mouth when you ate it. They have great drinks too - the cotton candy drinks are pretty cool, you might want to bust out the trusty iPhone and take a video when they serve it to you!

I absolutely love the Bizzarre the bathroom is the best part it's amazing you could spend like four hours and they're taking pictures with your friends also there are appetizers and entrées are very good but very small.

For those who can afford a pricey menu with a small portion, it would be 5 stars without complaint because the vibe is totally worth the hype and very nice to hang out. Food is delicious and I am attaching some photos. Each order has about 4~5 pcs.

Absolutely fabulous from ambiance to service to great food and attention to detail. This is one of my favorite tapas restaurant here. Attention to detail is key. Perfect choice for date night. Valet only.

Came here for the Dine La experience. $100 for a 14 course meal that is to die for. Jose Andres has really taken culinary art to the next level. And not only is it a masterpiece to lay eyes on, it is also a deluge of decadent bliss in your mouth. My favorites were the watermelon nigiri, the fois gras, the waygu, and caviar. Although their drinks will have you swooning as well.

The food here is amazing. It's easily one of my favorite restaurants in LA. It's best to go with 2-4 people since it's a tapas restaurant, and you'll be able to try a little bit of everything more. Definitely try to make reservations, but you can still order food from the bar and lounge area. Everything is absolutely to die for but some of my favorites include the jamón with manchego, wild mushroom rice, seared scallops, and beef tartare. The wagyu beef cheeks have so much flavor and melts in your mouth. It's extremely savory. The chicken croquetas are heavenly and take me back to summers in Spain.

The staff is extremely welcoming and helpful and the sommelier gives excellent recommendations. I really love how the decor is luxurious but avant-garde, and it transpires to the way the dishes are displayed and the drinks are made. It's overall an amazing experience with food you can't find anywhere else!

I came here for my birthday dinner. This place doesn't really serve main entrees, just tons of tapas. There were a few things I wanted to try here when I checked out the menu. Definitely try the caviar cones, mmm caviar! It was my first time trying caviar, so I really liked it! The uni steamed buns were delicious. The taste of uni was really good and fresh. So much flavor packed in a bun! My favorite tapas was the philly cheesesteak. Be careful when you bite down on the bread, the cheese will ooze out! The cheese is soooo good! I really liked the sauce on the seared scallop! Once you're done ordering, they take you to a separate room for dessert. Nitrogen floating coconut, get that!! The presentation was just stunning and the dessert itself was just as good. I'm glad the food came out really quick. Basically once your food comes out and you eat it, a couple minutes later the next dish comes out so that was awesome!

Parking can be a pain to find, but if you're patient you can find a spot around the area if you're willing to walk!

Like everyone says, the philly cheesesteak is quite good and interesting. The bread is fluffy and airy on the inside with a a pretty rare peace of meat on top. If you want to wow your date, you come here. If you are out with all your hungry bros, you might want to go elsewhere because I can eat 10 orders of the cheese steak on my own. Valet is $14. This place was pretty poppin' on a Tuesday night.

Its fancy and all that, and definitely a scene but at the same time it feels like its trying a bit too hard. Food was solid, no complaints there. I suggest trying it for yourself. Its expensive but would be worth the experience for some.

I ate here much earlier this year as part of a work dinner and most definitely cannot distinguish specific menu items as well as I think, so bear with me.

This is what I wrote down that we ordered:
Squid - came with eggplant and rice which I was unsure about, but the flavors complemented each other really well.
Stuffed peppers - came with goat cheese - I think a tad too much. And that was pretty much the flavor: peppers with goat cheese. I would skip this.
Oysters - these were fine. Not bad, but not memorable either. Craft has much better ones.
Market ceviche - easily forgettable. I would skip this dish.
Cones - I had one of each. The California one was my favorite, followed very closely by the caviar one. The lox one is just okay. They are TINY (literally one bite) and the cost for them is most definitely steep.
Scallops - I LOVE scallops, and they were particularly great at The Bazaar.
Wagyu beef - the meat was really tender but the dish was a bit forgettable.
Caprese salad - This was surprisingly fresh and flavorful. Definitely one of the best I've ever had. It's probably that liquid mozzarella, which is magical.
Gnocchi - This was also amazing. The gnocchi was light and fluffy, like eating a cloud. It had a smoky earthy flavor (which I later found out was chicharron and I don't eat pork, oops). But definitely a must order - I think we ended up ordering several of these.
Sweet potato chips - came with a yogurt dipping sauce. I'm not that big on sweet potato fries or chips, and these were no exception unfortunately.
Chicken croquette - just okay. They were fried and had chicken in them. That's all.
Wild mushroom rice - I really really liked this. It was well seasoned and cooked - and I don't even like mushrooms!
Philly cheese steak - The bread is hollowed out with air and has melted cheese inside and then the meat is on top. it's fun to bit into it and have it "pop," but you have to finish your sandwich pretty quickly after in an effort to avoid getting cheese everywhere. Flavors were just okay - it's really more of a novelty item.

Dessert:
Chocolate pop rocks - Really no explanation needed. 90's flashback!
Apple bread pudding - I was SO sad and disappointed by this. It wasn't sweet enough (and I'm not that big on super sweet things) and there was an odd aftertaste. I barely got a few bites in before giving up on it.

Overall, the service was absolutely impeccable (as expected) and the decor was lovely - very ornate and upscale. The ambiance was surprisingly relaxed and even a bit noisy - I was definitely happy it wasn't stuffy.

The Bazaar is somewhere you come once for the fun experience and all the oddly complementing flavors. However, I didn't leave feeling stuffed, especially considering how many tiny plates we ordered. I would come back on special occasion, but if I wanted to go somewhere for good food without bells and whistles and tiny portions, it definitely wouldn't be here.

I came for Dine LA here to try out their Spanish tapas with a few friends. Right when we go seated out waiter Johnny was very pleasant to be around with. Made sure we had everthing we need it for our dinning experience. He explained everything dish to us as well recommended additional dishes which were very tasty. Definitely coming back for more food and the great service that they provide.

TL;DR - $$$$, but satisfying portions for fancy food. Best for impressing dates.

It's a shame that I only seem to find myself here during DineLA, but here I am again one year later and it's gone unreviewed since. I had noted on the back of my mind that The Bazaar gave me a strong 5 star experience a year ago, but couldn't seem to remember why. Was it the food, the ambiance, the service? Let me tell you that all these categories were blown out of the water.

If Beverly Hills had a Town Square, the SLS Hotel would be it. There's so many beautiful people walking around in here, that you feel beautiful yourself (because you are beautiful....). The headline here is that you feel fancy eating. Then if you wish for dessert, your server relocates you to the dessert area...which is also equally as swanky and visually astounding.

-=-Philly/Hilly Cheesesteak-=- The top item, don't leave home without it. Hilly is the meatless version, but I still preferred the Philly because I like me meats. Don't even think about splitting this with someone, since the whole thing will literally disintegrate into your mouth. That butter cream cheese (ok it's cheddar, you win Mr. Floor Manager Andrew) inside will literally warm your soul.

-=-American Sturgeon Caviar Cone-=- An all time personal favorite. I can count the times that I eat caviar, but I try not to pass it up here since it's just so damn rich. As soon as you bite into the clear shell just pops all this flavor into your mouth.

-=-Little Nick Clams/Mediterranean Mussels-=- I must group these up together since they don't seem to carry a distinction to my palate. These are served in a can, which is already odd in my opinion. It was as if the chef just popped a can opener and served it that way. With the molecular gastronomy reputation of this place, you expect the flavors to pop, but these just didn't. Maybe the most unique thing was the sauce that it was in.

-=-Jamon Serrano Fermin (Ham Plate)/Embutidos Platter (Chorizo, lomo, salchichon)-=- These 2 are served in similar fashions with meat and bread on a cutting board. One order is a good starter for 4 people or so. Obviously the variety goes to the Embutidos, but I also thought it was a tastier variety as well.

-=-Sea Scallops-=- served on a plate with sauce all over the top. These are tasty and easily go down. It is not a filler plate by any means, due to the lightness, but it definitely filled a void between the heavier meats and the caviar.

-=-Croquetas de Pollo-=- Easy to eat and super breaded at that. The molecular gastronomy is lost with this one.

-=-Braised Wagyu Beef Cheeks-=- Was a bit of a letdown as the concluding dish. Meat was sliced thin as it should be, but bites of the meat did not warm and finalize my palate. The letdown was more about how the cheeks were cooked (overcooked?) rather than the sauce, which was a simple gravy but fine otherwise.

-=-Caipirinha, nitrogen cocktail-=- an expensive drink, but I love it anyway. Super frozen slushy Brazilian alcohol that resembles rum. It's served frozen and not diluted by ice water one bit. It's a great treat, but at the price, I only want to afford 1 before I move over to the more reasonably priced cocktails.

Came here during a non dine LA week on a Sunday and they weren't busy. The food are tapas which are small dishes and we got some really good dishes recommended by our server Johnny. He did a great job describing the dishes from modern and traditional tapas and how it was made. First thing we ordered was a drink and we got a peach bellini and the mixologist did a great job. We got some complimentary mashed potatoes with the egg yolk inside and it tasted amazing in the glass it came in. I forgot what it was called. We ordered salad guacamole (amazing). Rabbit (so good), wagyu beef (so tasty wish it was more). Ordered a few more dishes that were also good. After dinner we move to the dessert area and then we ordered the coconut nitrogen banana dish which is the most amazing dessert which was recommended by the server. Overall great experience and atmosphere. Would definitely come back and eat again.

came here twice-
once for my bday in Nov 10' with my gfs and I was super excited only cause Ive been hearing so much about this place and been itching to try it! So I was super excited when we got there..going inside it was just a museum of bazaar furniture and cutesy pink decor. I especially LOVED the Restroom- the white on white was super classy!

We were seated outside, I wished we made earlier reservations to be seated indoors so we can thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of the place. Our server was very helpful, and being that it was all of our first time he was introducing everything to us as quick as possible.( we were all starving)

We got the LN 2 caipirinha - Brazilian cachaça, fresh lime and sugar frozen using liquid nitrogen- which basically was only fun to watch, it tasted like a lemonade smoothie.
For starters we got the Tortilla de patatas "new way" - potato foam, egg 63, caramelized onion. - the Egg was super cute and very delicious with all the flavors.
Tried the Caprese Salad where it was literally one bite per person the cheese literally popped in my mouth!
I am a vegetarian so I was Very pleased they had the option of the Hilly Cheese stake which was substituted with mushrooms instead of the meat and it was scrumptious- the cheese oozed out of the bread =)
We also tried some other stuff but they weren't as memorable as what i had mentioned above.
So after our meal we were moved to there Dessert section- which once again was filled with oooo's and ahhhs
My gfs got me 2 cakes one was the Chocolate Lava cake and the other was the there famous Nitro coconut floatin island - passion fruit and vanilla - this was VERYY delish I wanted to lick everything off the plate!

As I had mentioned above I came here twice, and my second experience was meh..this place is def meant to be tried ONCE - you may crave for more but honestly the appeal is gone after you return-
Plus everything is Extremely pricey for amount of food you are given!
