We just had a great breakfast at Tart. My parents always stay at the Farmers Daughter when in town for a visit. So we went to Tart for breakfast this morning. It was so tasty. The place really looks good and the waitress was so nice. She recommended the stuffed french toast. Thats what I got and oh my, it was the best. Two huge pieces stuffed with blueberries and creamcheese. And the pancakes my dad got were enormous and delicious. My mom got the biscuits and gravy which she really liked. The prices were really reasonable and everything turned out great. I cant wait to try out the lunch tomorrow before they leave.
Since my co-workers and I discovered TART, we're there at least once a week and our group gets bigger every time! We all agree that there's nothing on the menu we've tasted and didn't absolutely love. The cocktails are completely original and utterly fabulous, with fresh ingredients and creative bartenders. The staff is friendly and never rushes you out so they can pack people in (like so many places do). TART is not to be missed, whether you're a local or a tourist you'll be glad you went.
For the patio alone, this place is one of the best in L.A.. Add in the very friendly service, the yummy food (everything I've tried is worthwhile), and the price, and this is a place I regret not living closer to.
This is a neighborhood gem! I Moved here 2 months ago from NYC and went to tart the first night in my new apartment because my kitchen wasn't unpacked yet. I was blown away, the host was as gracious as can be, the staff polished and friendly and the food sublime. To get this package in New York you have to endure treatment like you were something less than human (celebrities excluded of course).

i am a food lover,and i love to eat out with my friends.so my girlfriend took me out to the grove,and we walked across the street to checkout tart.On arrival we were greeted by the rudest hostess,who gave us an attitude because her phone was ringing of the hook.Anyway we got seated,and did not like the food because it was too salty and expensive for me to afford.i would not go back to tart ever or recommend to my friends either.

I met a bunch of friends at TART to catch a drink and light snkack before our movie. The food was good. The staff extra friendly. We got so caught up in talking we never did make it to our movie.
The price was perfect, I was reading some of the reviews and I am not sure what some of the comments are about the price? My steak and mashed potatoes was $32.00.
They were able to recommend some great wines to go along with the food, but truth be told I ended up having some german wheat beer that they carry!!
Everything was great and I will be back again.

I went to tart with some girlfriends of mine for dinner.The food was ok,but the service is so bad.We had to ask for refilling water so many times,and they take too long to bring the check.At those prices they better get there head straight or they wont last long in this city.

i love to go out eat and entertain my business clients and my friends chose tart.The service was horrible and so was the food.The cowboy steak was overcooked,especially when i asked for medium rare.Restaurants like tart do not belong in the restaurant scene in los angeles,perhaps they can learn a lot from other successful restaurants in los angeles for food and service.I cant believe i listened to my friends for the worst dining experience in my life to go to tart.The service is bad,they do not listen to the customers needs.

I made the horrible mistake of choosing this restaurant for a business dinner. The portions were so small I was beginning to wonder if my reaction was being filmed for a hidden camera television show. Not only were the portions microscopic, they didn't merit the extraordinarily huge cost. Sure the restaurant is ""cute"", the service reasonable, but that in no way makes up for the horrendous taste, atom-sized portions and their astronomical prices. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place at all costs (pun intended).

The service was downright weird and the food below average, especially for the price. At some point a friend asked why the dish she ordered was nothing like what was described on the menu (""3 waffles with mixed berries turned out to be one hard waffle-iron waffle, and no berries) and the waiter said, ""Relax, it's just food."" Maybe it would be easier to relax if the waffles weren't $15 dollars. Sides didn't come until we pestered; mains came out at all different times, and looked like they'd been sitting around. The sauce on another friend's eggs benedict had congealed into an almost solid yellow crust! Granted, they did try to recitfy the situation by taking 50% off the bill, but that just brought the food down close (but not quite) to a price more appropriate to the quality.

Horrendous and apathetic service. Food emerged from the kitchen at completely different times and, when finally served, was lukewarm. The menu promised side dishes that never materialized. Most dishes were worse than your average college cafeteria product: lumpy hollandaise sauce, brittle waffles, unripened fruit, etc. Admittedly, they tried to apologize by giving us 50% off at the end of the meal. Still, that's 2 hours and a meal that we will never get back.

Tart is really too expensive. That's the main thing I associate with the restaurant. Some of the food I tried was very good; nothing was sublime. Certainly, almost no dishes were worth their price. I will never again order the $55 fatty veal chop with too much sage and pancetta (they unbalanced the dish). The $16 butter poached lobster appetizer was exceptional (although small). The strawberry, blue cheese, and spinach salad was very good as was the chocolate cake. The restaurant's outside patio was beautiful but $175 for two (and I brought in wine - $25 corkage!) was uncomfortably expensive.

My husband went for lunch and enjoyed it, but then we went for dinner to our regret. The food is outrageously overpriced. The service is fine and the food tastes good, but not good enough to pay that extra $10-20. I ordered a lobster ""salad"" that was barely an appetizer. The place was almost empty--it won't last with those prices. Don't waste your money.

I happened upon TART completely by chance. Some friends of mine were staying at the farmer's daughter hotel and, having already enjoyed it themselves, demanded that my husband and I come meet them. We all enjoyed a long lunch at one of the outdoor tables, then walked over to the Grove for a movie. When the waiter informed us that they'd only been open for j a month I was even more impressed. My advice would be to take advantage of this place as much as possible before a reservation is required.

Like many people, I love going out to eat, but usually there is SOMETHING that sort of deminishes the experience. But this place really blew me away with great food, ambience, and service. It was just a perfect night, the food was perfectly cooked, served at the perfect time, and the atmosphere was just beautiful.

We had a family dinner at Tart last week and it was great! The food was excellent- very high quality. Try the panfried crabcakes and cowboy steak- very, very good. Its pretty expensive but worth it. The decor was very nice too- we sat in the patio cabanas and the ambience is quiet and romantic but not overly intimate. This is the perfect place to hang out and lounge with friends. Ill be going back.

I love tart because of nino the winemaster and manager of tart restaurant.We love his hard to find cult pinot's and cab's list at tart and the food ,above all is the best in los angeles.In los angeles there are so many restaurants but nothing comes close to tart in food,nino's service and wine list.We love to eat and entertain our business clients all the time and tart would be our favourite entertaining and dining out option.

In Los Angeles, sometimes the only thing that matters is how you look. If Tart was judged by looks alone, it would be a success. Beautiful decor, warm ambience, friendly service. Unfortunately, Tart also serves food. Very over-priced, mediocre and sometimes confusing food. Tart tries hard to be unique, adding unnecessary sauces and spices but in the end comes off like a desperate aspiring actress who just doesn't know when to quit. Save your money and time. You'll thank me later.
