We tried Tart for dinner tonight. To make it short, the evening left a bad taste in my mouth. A large bottle of ""italian' sparkling water $8.00 yielded two half full wine glasses.
The crab cake appetizer was o.k. The cowboy steak for $44.00 was a bone with mostly fat attached to it, covered up with an oily parsley mix. My wife left half of her grilled swordfish on the plate. I feel like an idiot having spend $140.00 for this disappointing experience. Don't make the same mistake. You get much better food at one of the places at the fabulous farmers market across the street from Tart.
My experience at Tart was quite possibly my worst restaurant experience in the last 5 years. As a neighbor of the area I was excited by the possiblity of a new and fun restaurant within walking distance to my house. Upon arrival, I quickly realized this was not what I was in for. The place was completely empty, the prices astronomical, the food bland and simply said...bad. The whole experience...bad. So bad, my friends and I skipped the main course and went to a restaurant down the street for better food, better wine, and far better prices. Save your money and your time and skip Tart.
This new restaurant left a lot to be desired. Aside from the quaint exterior and what could be a fun, friendly atmosphere my friends and I stepped foot into an empty restaurant. The menu was scant and more than overpriced. Although the wine steward was friendly and knowledgeable it did not make up for the lack of atmosphere and the pittance of food we were served. (my friends and I were left thinking 'please sir, can I have some more) This restaurant has great potential - - but if the menu prices and lack of customers continue, I assume that TART will be toast.

They need to tweak at few of the menu items (and maybe relook at some of those prices); atmosphere and location are great (Tart and a movie at the Grove is a great date); Tanya our server was lovely and informative.

This place is terrible! Do not stay here. The decor may be cute but it is cheap and all surface. The beds are unsleepable. In fact, our 4 person ""suite"" did not have enough sleeping accomodations for 4 people and we were sleeping on cushions on the bare wood floor. The service is TERRIBLE- argumentative, rude front office staff not interested in helping whatsoever. Don't stay here!

I am so in love with Farmer's Daughter Hotel's new look. They're lobby looks fabulous and not to mention their front desk's outfits are adorable. I felt right at home in their farm style rooms. The Price is definitely right at this hotel. I highly recommend you to stay here!

The rooms at the Farmer's Daughter are an exceptional value. What's more, the staff is extremely helpful. With many places to eat just a short walk away, the Farmer's Daughter is the perfect place to stay for business, leisure, or in my case, apartment renovations. Great overall value!

We were at the Farmer's Market and The Grove for shopping. We enjoyed it so much that we wanted to stay the night and continue shopping the next day. We were referred to the Farmer's Daughter. Upon arrival we were a little taken back by the construction site (which are almost done). Once we checked in and got ot our room we were very pleased with the recommendation. The room was newly refurbished and very cute. The rooms have a hip / funky look to them with great artwork and plenty of amenities. The staff was friendly and very helpfull. I have found the hotel that I will keep coming back to everytime I come to Los Angeles.

I took my 80 year old grand mother to see the Price Is Right and Farmer's Daughter was right across the street. Having a fridge in the room was great! I also noticed the free DSL and will bring my lap top next time. I have several friends who travel and I will recomend this hotel to them. The shower was very nice, like a natural rain fall. The price fit well into my budget. The staff made us feel right at home. The continental breakfast was a plus also. Thanks again everyone!

I had stayed at the Farmer's Daughter a couple of years back and was totally amazed at the changes to the property. They have taken a huge step and made a mediocre motel into a stylish and trendy getaway spot. The location is perfect, the staff is very kind and professional, and the new design is to die for. I recommend this spot to anyone, ESPECIALLY if you are headed out to see Bob Barker at the Price is Right. They even have Price is Right clinics to inform guests about show procedures. Kudos to the Farmer's Daughter, and I'll see you guys again soon!

My relatives recently flew into LA for a family reunion and everyone loved the Farmer's Daughter! While it isn't a fancy hotel, the service, location, price, and cleanliness was top notch. The staff went out of their way to ensure everyone had a good time, and the close proximity to Farmer's Market and The Grove (where we held the reunion) was ideal. It's also very easy access to Hollywood, Universal Studios, Melrose Avenue, & museums. The owners are beginning to renovate the rooms and I got a sneak peek -- really nice. Highly recommended!!

One must keep in mind that this is a MOTEL, not a fancy hotel or B&B. That being the case, Farmer's Daughter was fine. No frills, but the staff was extremely helpful and even found me an extra night (Friday) at the last minute. They were able to get me a room that fit my requests, and were very friendly throughout. The location is excellent! I don't think there's a better bargain motel in LA for the price.

Great place to stay. Location is good. Good prices. Enjoyed the atmosphere very much. I would stay there anytime I need to go down to LA. Plus the Tshirts are really fun and comfortable.

We just had a BLAST in LA, thanks in part to the friendly, knowledgeable and CUTE guys at the Farmer's Daughter! Very kind, courteous, helpful, and witty, these guys made our stay feel like home away from home. It's not fancy, but its very clean, and located near the strip, near the beach, near great shopping, near all kindsa clubs. We loved it, and we love you guys!! Thanks for being so sweet and making our stay a most pleasant one!

It's not fancy, but I loved that it was inexpensive. The rooms were fairly large (for the price) and I loved the frig in the room. My friends and I always take advantage of that!
