Anyone who has anything to do with preparing and serving food in the UK takes great heed of the words of the restaurant critic A A Gill in the Sunday Times. "Good food with bad service presents itself as bad food"
Such an epithet can

Not sure what place cscmobileuser went to, but Shiloh's is a great restaurant. Every time I've been there my husband and I walk out so full and so pleased. It's always amazing to go to Shiloh's! The food is great and the waiter is

When it comes to fine kosher dining in Los Angeles, no one pulls it off quite like Shilo??s.

1.Service ?? I really feel welcome when I walk into Shilo??s, they always seem to go out of their way to satisfy each customer. From their pleasant mannerisms to their great advice regarding menu selections, they genuinely want to ensure I have the best dining experience possible.

2.Food ?? I honestly have never tasted food like the treats served up at Shilo??s. I especially like how the head chef comes up with creative ways to mimic ??forbidden? food in a kosher way. Take the Bleu Cheese Burger for example ?? I HAVE SIMPLY NEVER TASTED A BURGER LIKE IT. Even the bun looks like it was created for this burger! Add a Kobe patty, fake bacon (or pastrami or whatever it was, IT WAS GOOD!!) and that amazing imitation Bleu cheese!

Dude, I can??t believe the bad press I??m seeing on here regarding that Bleu cheese. Do you folks react the same way when eating yogurt? Because it tastes sour? Or how about Swiss cheese? Come on people! It??s SUPPOSE to taste like that. It??s not for everyone! But coming on here and calling it ??old and moldy? ?? please ?? it??s not even real cheese folks?I don??t think mold will ever be an issue.

I guess the point I??m trying to make is that it??s a kosher restaurant with an amazing head chef that designs his menu to offer unique tastes to the Jewish community.

3.Food ?? Sorry, I need to speak a bit more about the food. Head on over and get a Kobe steak (be sure to order it the way you like it done), you??ll thank me later!

4.Misc ?? I??ve gone to social gathering there and I??ve closed business deals there. The owners are always so warm and gracious. They make you want to come back ?? and I always do!!!

I went to this place a week ago with some friends and totally recommend it , they have a great variety of appetizers and I was amazed with the wonderful flavors; the service was fast and great. We were fortunate to have chef Katsuji coming to our table, he even explained the way the appetizers are made and I have so much respect for the creativity that chef has on putting all these amazing food together. Then the chef made us some ice cream from scratch right on our table that was quite an experience! We had an awesome time!!

I went to Shilohs for my girlfriend birthday and it was an amazing experience. First, we had really good original appetizers, the tarte flambee and the scallops, then my friend had the blue cheese filet and I had the cowboy steak ( i'm really a meat lover ;-) ). It was great for both of us, the addition of the blue cheese truly enhance the taste of the delicious filet and my cowboy steak was tender and very tasty. At the end, the waiter brought us a very good chocolate souffle with a candle singing happy birthday for my friend. I thought it was nice delicate touch.

Overall, I would recommend Shilohs to anybody who loves great food in a great ambiance.

I loove this restaurant. If I was asked to go out for dinner, Shilos would definately be my first choice. Not only is the food soo tastey, you get great service!!! The ceviche is great , not only one type there are three different ones that iv'e tried and tested over and over again.The Baby back ribs and cowboy steak are soo tender. My hubby realy enjoys the blue cheese (parve) Burger, it is unlike any other burger youve ever tasted. The surf n' turf is something out or the ordinary as well, I would deffinatly recomend it. The Chef is amazing, he will go to table after table letting you test out his different, and new items that aren't listed on the menue. Ive been there over and over again, and have always been satisfied, overly satisfied!!. Not only have we gone out alone, we've gone out with freinds and my hubby and freinds even made me a surprise party there..It was wonderfull..Thanx Katuji!!!

The other day, me, my mother and my sister decided to try Shilo's. We ordered two hamburgers and a steak. The meat of the hamburger was smelly and tasted literally like trash. I couldn't eat it past the third bite! The check ended up to be $73, which is absolutely ridiculous! We took the food home and my dad happened to eat it too. He got food poisoning and was throwing up for an hour straight. As well as that, I got diarreha and my sister and mother got stomach aches. I will never ever go back to that place, not only because of the food but also the service. It took the waitor a long time to bring us our drinks and once he brought it there was a fly in my water! You may all think I'm joking but it really is the truth!

I don't know what the person who wrote before was talking about, because my husband and I and all of our friends think Shilo's is amazing. The chief is always trying new and interesting dishes while keeping the favoriates around. I have enjoyed many of the steaks and would suggest the blue cheese (parve) steak or the archetta. Both are great! Also love the appetizers! The petite couisse and tarte flambe are definately worth trying. I have always enjoyed the civiche and if you want to try something really unique try the surf n' turf. We have always had excellent service as well. I can't say anything about the apple dessert but if you like bananas then definitely try the bananas foster. We have been going here for nearly 3 years and never had any kind of flies in the resturant, and we have been there at all times of the day, not just the evening when its dark or wtvr. To make a long story short, this really is an exceptional restaurant whether you keep kosher or not.

Where to begin. The margarita tasted like it had absolutely no alcohol in it whatsoever. Just margarita mix and something indeterminate. When we questioned why it tasted funny, we were told that they don't have any liquor, it was made with white wine. We sent it back. Awfully pricey for a drink made without hard liquor, even with the impressive dry ice floating on the top! That's when we started noticing the black bugs flying all around our heads. They were larger than gnats, smaller than flies, and suddenly I realized that I had had the exact same flying bug problem 2 years ago when I was there last. I can only surmise that, since we were there during the daytime, the bugs were more obvious to us than they would be to diners during the dimly-lit dinner hours. The mushroom eggrolls were cold and tough. The ceviche was boring. The kobe hamburgers were great, though, and I guess that the meat is where they have their corner of the kosher market. That, and it is lovely inside. We ordered 2 desserts. Apple Crumb and Rhubarb Something-or-Other. My friend dug into the apple one first and said "Wait, there are absolutely no apples in this." I took a spoonful and it was possibly the most vile thing I've ever eaten. I wanted to spit it out, but instead took a big swallow of wine so that at least that bad taste wouldn't be the note with which I ended the meal. We sent the apple one back. Not one person came over to ask why the dessert was sent back. It was suggested that they already knew how bad it was! The rhubarb one also had no fruit that I could distinguish except for a sour taste--I guess that's what passes for rhubarb. We just left that one not eaten. We're not in the habit of sending food back, although we now have a little more practice. Our server could not even stay at our table long enough to finish his rehearsed half-sentence. I figured out why when we got our bill. 18% is added automatically for larger parties. I have no problem with that. I have a problem with dismissive "service" - I use the term loosely. Had the service been as stellar as the prices, we would gladly have tipped 20%. I am now reading a review and it says "the young owners are welcoming and pleasant." Perhaps they were on vacation. Too bad--they missed us playing "catch the gnat."

All of Pico/Robertson know that Shilos is the #1 Kosher Steak in CA, and by far!
I'm more of a lunch guest and I just love it there!. The lunch menu is very different than the dinner with very good prices and good food.

I do not know if you seen the photos on the back but Demi Moore, Ashton, Bill Cristal, few Mayors and a lot more do eat there weeky.
This place has been around for almost 3 years ?? and nobody told me about it!! I told the owner (very friendly and modest) they should be the top rated SteakHouse in LA.
The special of the day changes every week and its from a different country every single time! now I can eat all over the world without using my privat jet...

I've had a lot of steaks, and these are probably the best, even better than more expensive non-Kosher ones. Choose the Laredo Log Steak (lean thick cut). Also the chocolate mousse is the best I've ever had (and I've had quite a few)! Also, the fresh, hot bread served at the beginning is the best anywhere.The prices are not cheap, but also not as expensive as the quality of the food. Lunch is cheaper and excellent.

If you are looking for a koshersteakhouse with style go to Shilos. I would not recommend the chicken but any steak is usually amazing. Avoid the cowboy sauce if you're not a fan of heavy sauces. I would definitely go there for deserts, it is unique and kosher.

Shilo's Kosher Steakhouse is one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. It is an intimate, modern steakhouse with pleasant staff, who enjoy entertaining and celebrating special moments with their guests. There is an array of steaks to choose from whether you are looking for something lean or something a little heartier, with various delicious sauces to choose from as well. My favorites are the Cowboy Steak and the Chopped Salad and the great thing, from my frequent visits, is they have daily specials with a variety of appetizing steaks, fish, pastas, appetizers, and salads. Though it may be a bit cozy, owners mentioned that they are in the midst of expanding. I can?t wait for my next meal at Shilo?s!

there just is something about there steaks that make me dream about steak more and more...
On a serious note, the food is fantastic. the young owners are welcoming and pleasant.
What more can ask, maybe for them to open an other one closer to my home?

Kosher or not, sevice and presentation stunk! We were greeted by a rude hostess and what seemed to be one of the owners or a manager standing and blocking the entrance into the dining room. We had to squeeze by him to get in. The server would repeat what I asked him to get for me with a blank look on his face as if he himself never has eaten in a restaurant or maybe even had a conversation with someone! Steak was ok the ribs were unedible and the restaurant trys to come high class when its not. Lets put down some checkered table cloth stop serving ketchup in designer plates and get some waiters with experience at Chilis or Friday's. My experience stunk at the moment the Valet greeted me to the moment I realized that the hostess to better accomodate our party asked us to move our table ourselves. The bus Boy was completely confused but must be very well payed becausehe was wearing huge diamond earings! Im angry I wasted my money ,sad that I am forced to eat un Kosher meat! Because Next week. Mastros!!!!
Note to the owners: Get a staff that has a clue. I know youre from France and have a flashy Website, thats not going to make your sub par, bad service, rude host, dining establishment last beyond the people who are forced to keep kosher and the people who elect to have a choice. My advice .... Break the commandments of the Torah and eat at McDonalds. You'll feel better the next day!!! God Will understand.

I went to SHILO with a friend and his wife. while the place looks nice, I would not go back. They packed in so many tables that the waiter had to pass food over my head to get to the people sitting behind us. My plate was not hot like most nice places and my side dishes were cold. the steak was nothing to write home about and even the waiter complained to us about how cramped the layout is.
with regards to the reviewer who claimed SHILO was better than prime grill, keep dreaming.

With a waiter who grew up in the meat business who made great recommendations for each of us, excellent and attentive service, lovely ambience in this tiny steakhouse, we and our guests felt this was a much nicer evening out and better food than at Prime Grill! There's no attitude and everyone seemed to be having a good time all over the restaurant.

My rib eye was incredibly flavorful, fork-tender and so good, I ate every morsel. Everyone was very happy with their choices, even the non-meat eater who chose the fish.

Pros: Intelligent waitstaff, great service, pleasant and quiet environment

Cons: Small restaurant, so it's a little crowded at some tables

.

First thing's first. DON'T order the fois gras. It's just moussed chopped duck liver, not fois gras, and certainly not worth the eighteen dollars. I mean, if you love chopped liver, you'll definately like this. But if you haven't kept kosher forever and you've had fois gras, you'll be highly dissapointed (I wasn't surprised, I couldn't imagine that stuffing a goose 'til its liver is overgrown could possibly be considered kosher).

Anyway, the steak is actually better than good. It's really good! And sauces are nice, too. Also, the complimentary bread (with a starter from the La Brea bakery) come complimetary with olive tapenade and if you ask, harissa (watch out, it's delish, and particularly spicy). The steak was done as I had ordered it, the sides were nice (if a bit simple). My mother said that the duck was great, too. And the waiter (I believe his name was Craig) was particularly fantastic. He was patient, attentive, and delt with my parents' endless questions like a real, forgive the term, mensch. Not to mention that the french fries were great! Something like the kosher answer to McDonald's classic. Perfectly salted, and not to limp, not too crispy.

The restaurant itself was nice, too, with a stone-lined fountain wall in the backdrop, a cool, modern, bathroom. The booths were beautiful, and ambience was nice, except that there was no sound dampening in the room, so it got to loud and could be difficult to hear at times. The tables in the middle of the room made it a little crowded, but we hear that that problem will be alleviated when they expand next door this year.

Let's be honest. Because so many of the kosher establishments in this city usually have greasy tables and rude servers who act like they don't care about whether they have your business or not, Shilo's is a welcome, if expensive, alternative. We'll be back.
