"My girlfriend & I visited fundamental LA thanks to a 30% off promo from Blackboard Eats. We couldn't have been more satisfied with our dinner. Sitting in the smallish bar area gave us the great opportunity to witness Chef Nick and his staff prepare every dish, and with every plate that came out, we gobbled up every savory bite! Loved the shrimp with bacon and popcorn grits, inhaled the asparagus with smoked trout (and I usually despise all smoked seafood) and devoured the Brussel sprouts with deviled egg puree and everything bagel spice. Service was solid, and we enjoyed the unique (and mostly French) wine list. We plan on revisitng with two of our foodie friends this coming weekend - can't wait!!"

"We started with an absolutely memorable black garlic panisse with a delicious sauce and japanese spices that imparted texture, creaminess and bite in the smallest form. On to some spectacular bitter greens balanced with fine acid and salt, shrimp with grits at a refined level and mussels to wrap things up. Each plate was extremely well prepared, the services was attentive (almost overly so. We had to seize our shrimp and grits back a few times to finish every morsel) and the experience very good overall."

"Every time I eat, there's at least a couple of new items on the menu and deliciousness;))
That makes me keep coming back!

"I love Fundamental, and go there at least once a week, as my office is nearby. At peak dinner times, it can be a little crowded and loud, but it's par for the course. The food is great, service attentive, and it's a great value for the quality of food."

"the food is very interesting and fun to share; however, there is far too much oil in everything and the oil smell permeates the small restaurant. Better ventilation is needed and reduction in amount of oil in every dish; although must say there is a wonderful combination of flavors and herbs and greens in many dishes."

"The food is excellent but the portions are small. Everything is a la carte so by the time you add vegetables to your main course the price that seemed reasonable becomes expensive. The decor is nothing special but the service was professional and friendly. It's noisy and conversation has to be shouted not spoken"
