After reading the homophobic review by the jerk below, we just HAD to check out this place. We have the Entertainment card, which is a great way to discover restaurants in your neighborhood. First off, we noticed that there was a mixed crowd in the restaurant - gay and straight couples. The restaurant is connected to a gay piano bar upstairs and while the patrons at the restaurant are mostly gay, there is nothing to indicate it is a "gay only" restaurant. The staff was very friendly and fun, the food was delicious (I had the red snapper and my partner had the chicken cordon bleu - both excellent). The servings were generous and we'll definitely be going back to eat here again - even without the discount card! Definitely a nice neighborhood restaurant to frequent.

The "Leap" offers reasonably priced comfort food in a warm environment. Food is always tasty and served with a good presentation. Portions are generous. Access to full bar service augmented by an eclectic music / video mix (pleasantly in the background) and a room decorated with what seems to be a zillion nic knacks makes for a comfortable and cozy dining experience. The host, Rudy, is a sweetheart. .

I use to like the pork chop, but I have noticed on several occasions, that they use pam spray when they fry it and I can taste the spay. Ugh. Considering the prices, I think the food should have more sophisticated tastes to it. I have tried many items on the menu, and really am never satisfied.

The food was good, the service was friendly, the people were nice given the circumstances.

Oh, the circumstances you ask?

I was dumb and thought that this was a restaurant for straight people and took my wife here. We were the only heterosexual couple in the restaurant. Which worked out and the staff acted natural but it wasn't exactly something we anticipated.

I came here with a friend who happened to have a $100 gift certificate - which we spent in its entirety. $100 isn't THAT much for dinner for two, but at the Flying leap, we were able to try a bite of 1/2 the items on the menu. Crab cakes and cobb salads for appetizers, creamy bowtie pasta and new york steak for dinner, onion rings on the side, apple pie ala mode and cheesecake for dessert. I'm sure there is more I am forgetting. The main dining area is rather small, but we ate on the deck and had an attentive waiter all to ourselves (maybe this had something to do with us breaking the bank on a Tuesday evening). All in all, the food is as casual and comforting as the ambience - a rare and relaxing find in the uber-hip and often over priced Silverlake.

The staff is friendly and the food that we ordered was delicious. And, everything was reasonably priced. I had the Bowtie Primavera pasta with French Brie sauce and it was amazingly good. The staff was very friendly and although the tables were very close together, it was cozy rather than uncomfortable. French music in the background created a fun atomsphere. Overall, we really enjoyed our experience and will be coming back again.
