Wolfgang Puck's second restaurant opened in 1983. A unique blend of Chinese and French fusion explodes with flavors unheard of before. Imitated but yet never captured to this day this fusion of flavors keeps you craving and coming back for more. The food is served family style, creating a fun sharing experience that brings people together. The trend setting open kitchen where you can sit and eat while you watch the dance of the chefs working in unison. ***If you are interested in reserving our dining counter please make a request while making a reservation since seating is very limited***

    Excellent dinner! The food and service was the best we've had in the Los Angeles area! We have been comparing our LA dining experience to NYC with much disappointment, however our experience this evening has given us hope for LA Dining.

    As always, we are longtime fans of Chinois. Their tried-and-true menu never fails to impress. The well-trained wait staff ensures exceptional service every time. In the summer, they offer the best soft-shell crab on the menu—a real treat.

    The food was outstanding and every plate was delicious. The service at the bar was amazing. The service at the table was good but I think our waitress wanted to rush out as she didn't even ask us if we wanted coffee with our dessert. I had to ask for more water. We did see her leaving almost before we left. She was pleasant but a little bit in rush.

    After 43 years the place is still great. The food was fabulous , it is noisy, but all in all fantastic! Watermelon salad to die for, also the potstickers. This DINE LA was one of the best!
