I am amazed there is not one single review for this enormous catering company. They are the catering conglomerate that has taken over lots of venues in a wrestling match with Wolfgang Puck.

Our family celebrated a birthday at Patina on July 13 before heading to the Ahmanson to see South Pacific (which was amazing....)

Our meal was outstanding but we ran out of time for dessert...we had ordered and paid for it but didn't have

Definitely top-notch in service and food. Came here for a holiday lunch and the food and selection of wine were excellent. Not to mention, the interior is beautiful.

Dinner for 4 people was about $500. Too bad the $55 foie gras & truffle ravioli was utterly bland and flavorless. The chicken was fair/okay, but not worth the $37 or so price. Service was certainly friendly, if not a little showy. Never,

Pros: Near 3 concert Halls

We decided to have dinner at Patina because it was close to Dorothy Chandler. The manager upon noticing the very expensive Prada bag my friend was carrying made it his mission to dote on her the entire evening. He was arrogant, shallow

The appetizer we ordered they were out of, so they brought a substitution without even making us aware beforehand.

We ordered several different bottles of wine, and the waiter poured a new bottle over a different glass of wine.

Excellent food, service, and ambiance. As soon as you walk in, you are greeted by their bar. This is an upscale restaurant with a business dining feel to it. I love the foie gras here, might be one of the best I've had in the city. This is a great place to either eat before or after enjoying a show at the Walt Disney Center. Excellent wine selection. If you are an American Express cardholder, you can make special arrangements with your concierge for that extra surprise for that special occasion. Worth all the penny you'll spend, and you sure will spend!

Patina is located at the Walt Disney Concert Hall and has a very elegant and unique ambiance. The service is very professional and the California French dishes are very carefully executed.

Patina on Melrose was one of my favorite restaurants in the city. A "have-your-birthday-dinner-there" kind of restaurant". Well I went with it again for my birthday dinner in its new digs on Grand Avenue and it was very disappointing.

Patina, clearly, has haute cuisine down to a science. Dishes are creatively prepared, generous in size, and above all, sumptuously delicious. On a recent visit, I enjoyed a creamy lobster bisque, a huge piece of perfectly roasted
