"Cute little place. Used to be super popular but somehow isn't as much anymore. Food is ok. Some is really good but not great. Service is slower but friendly. Wine list not good if you like reds. They had no full body reds- which are my fav. The happy hr is a really good deal and I do recommend that. Otherwise, not so much"

"It is really loud - nothing in the design to reduce noise. Food was mediocre - nothing really stood out at all. Service wasn't good. We had been to a private party at this restaurant and liked it but dinner was just really mediocre. Disappointing."

"I came here a year ago for Dine LA and had a wonderful experience. The food and service were both excellent. It was a great experience and I was looking forward to coming back. Unfortunately, everything seemed to have changed the second time around. The service was slow and we had a 15 minute wait despite a reservation. The food was average at best. Seasoning was subpar on all dishes, either too salty (roasted vegetable entree with brown butter dashi) or not enough salt (brisket with pho gravy). The plating seemed hurried and shoddy, and the dishes just didn't seem to come together the way they were intended. Cornmeal cake was dry and the Panna Cotta consistency was completely wrong although the flavors of the desserts were nice."

"I was told that this restaurant was a price-fixed type menu, and now it is a la carte, and more pricey than expected.
The food was fine, but not great. Also, when they wanted to seat us in the back of the restaurant, there was a strong disinfectant smell. They moved us up to the front, but that was an unpleasant first whiff.

"This was my second trip to Fundamental. We went for restaurant week but ordered off the regular menu. The apps were delicious! We loved the fingerling salad and mushroom toast especially. The main courses were good too- I had the salmon and my boyfriend had brisket. We ordered the churros for dessert- they seemed alittle overdone. Service was friendly and prompt. All in all, a very enjoyable experience!"

"We were a little disappointed that we had to wait nearly 20 minutes past our reservation time, but I know that is not always in the restaurant's control. The food was excellent, but portion size was a little unpredictable. We had six people and with some items we ordered to share there was plenty for everyone to have a taste, and for others we all got only a tiny nibble."

"This is a small restaurant, design is minimal contemporary, casual atmosphere. The food has always been great, eclectic New American/Mediterranean. After a period with a new chef that took things in a too esoteric direction, they've returned to a menu full of fantastic, eclectic, innovative food. Really excellent, creative sandwiches and salads at lunch. Small and larger plates at dinner, from seafood, to meats, to vegetarian options. All outstanding. AND a fantastic wine list of unusual, wonderful ,reasonably priced wines.Worth the drive even if you don't live in Westwood."

"I give them a B minus for beginners. I don't know if it's a test kitchen, with amateur cooks learning on the line, but while the intention and price tag is upscale, the execution is poor and filled with errors. We're talking soggy food, no flavor or odd flavors, and waiters playing bartender without washing hands. It's also a spare room with an open kitchen, AND an open doorway to the kitchen sink. Gross. Not appealing on any level. Don't bother."

"We got there at 7:30 pm and they had sold out of what our waiter said were two of their most popular dishes--the chicken and the cornbread. This was our first time there and everything we had was very good even though we missed trying those two dishes. The chocolate pot de creme that the waiter recommended was fabulous"

"I dine at Fundamental LA once every few months. The food has never let me down. I have taken visitors from all over the world to this place and everyone has been impressed with their experience. The beer and wine list are interesting and compliment the food. The physical set up is a little funky with little distance between the tables and it can be noisy. Still an outstanding restaurant."

"The room echoes a bit, but the food and the service more than make up for it. Very nice wines, some excellent beers, and a wide array of flavors make this a great place for smallish groups. The chocolate pot de creme is a winner of a dessert."
