First, the pros: romantic atmosphere, loungy bar, fun, flirty Frenchmen. The "mixologist" is hilariously energetic and his concoctions are probably the best thing about the place. Try the mango mohito with red pepper flakes. YUM! The cons:

Pros: Ambiance, service

the apps and entrees were excellent. Great service & ambience. Come armed with your plastic. La Cachette is a wonderful, classic restaurant with beautifully prepared and presented food. As someone else mentioned, this is not a trendy place, and if you are under the age of 60 you will probably be in the minority. ;) That said, if you want a quiet and romantic dinner or a nice place to celebrate with your family, this is the place to go.

The food here is very good, the ambience is nice, the location is hard to get to (I guess because of all the construction on Santa Monica) but the food is really expensive. Go here for special occasions, but unless you are part of the Bill

Great food! I would say one of the best restaurants in LA. A bit expensive. Good service, although could be better. Overall I would recommend if you don't mind spending a lot of money.

The best rench Resturant in Los Angeles.
Easy on the buter and cream allows for emphasis on the fresh flavors. The Lobster Salad is excellent.
Blows the overrated-overriced Patina out of the water.
