I had been a long time customer and fan of Bandara until last month when I was eating a Kale salad and suddenly crunched into a small rock. \r

Alright, this should be a pretty simple review. Bandera is one of my favorite restaurants in LA! There is no corking fee, so feel free to bring your favorite bottle of wine. The food is outstanding, and honestly I have to say the prime

The best beef ribs with little fat.It's so good that they don't even put it on the menu since too many people order it.

Very nice dining experience. The food was great, I had fish and I'm picky about fish and liked it. The wine selection is far above average and the staff knew what to recommend. The real draw for me was the live jazz.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday last year and we both had a great time. The wine menu is amazing with a lot of different choices with the focus on quality instead of brand names. The food was also amazing in a subtle way, improving upon classics instead of putting extreme items on the menu. Expect to spend some money when you are here. They also usually have low key live music softly playing during dinner hours.

This place is awesome! The service and food are excellent. They have live jazz music many nights and you can bring in a bottle of wine void of any corkage fee. It really saves you a ton of money, considering the type of food you can

Yum. Filet Mignon with bernaise... delicious. I went there with some girlfriends and we all had a great time. Every one of us loved what we ordered. I think it was the first time my high maintenance friends didn't send their food back.

This is a quality place. There are nicer places in town, but it hits above the mark in every category. The price, the quality of food and the atmosphere are all great. I always take out of town guests here. Definitely recommend!

Located at the SW corner of Wilshire and Barrington with only a sign that says "Restaurant", Bandera is the best restaurant in the area! My 2 favorite appetizers are the Smoked Salmon and the Grilled Artichoke. Also, their filet is amazing, naturally seasoned and not dripping in butter and oil! The ribs are "fork and knife, fall of the bone" tender. Go often and try everything! Though it is not inexpensive, you will leave feeling full and satisfied! Don't forget to order a margarita, they are known for them! Also, there is no corkage fee and they encourage you to bring your own wine.

It's a little cheesy at the bar with the aging cougars hovering over the 30 something men in their suits and ties but the smell is delicious. Must tries are the Grilled Artichoke Heart and the Tuna Poke. The portions are great and prices

Pros: Delicious food, great bar scene

Although the bar can be a bit of a meat market with 30 year old professionals and 40+ year old cougars, go here for the food. The cornbread is to die for, the banana cream pie dessert is sinful, and just about every entree is perfection.
