Although it is very expensive, I is so good you feel like it's worth it. I've been going there since... I don't know how long, but they have food from everywhere in the country.


Saturday my family and I ate at Kate's. As usual, the Ceasar Salad and clam chowder were very good! My husband decided to try the VEAL. IT WAS AWFUL! It was very dry and burnt...

Downhill 5/12/2011

This place has very much gone down hill, I used to come here every week for business lunches, but the food is no longer how I remembered it. I am also perplexed as to why prices keep rising, or why people come into their doors? I suppose its because its close to a lot of places on Wilshire. As for me, time to find a new place for my weekly lunches. more

gone seriously downhill 4/8/2011

We've been going to Kate's for years. We like the room and the service, and we used to enjoy the food. But the menu hasn't really changed in at least fifteen years, except for the rising prices, and the quality of the food has gone so steadily downhill that we can't ignore how bad it's become. Burned sausages, soggy fries, dried-out meatloaf, overcooked pasta. Even though it's convenient to screenings, we can no longer coax friends to join us here, and we're reluctantly following suit -- no more Kate's. more

Overrated 'hamburger hamlet' diner 3/6/2011

So we wanted to catch a movie near by and haven't been here in a few years.....well now I know why.....the attitude is ugly....and snooty. The menu has many choices but the food is so over- rated and over-priced and our waiter was constantly pushing us to order a drink. We shared a salad (it was good) then we had the worst turkey (dog-food) burgers with a piece of lettuce, no fries or anything else for $16.00 each!!! The quality, size and taste was just horrible. Our waiter never asked us how everything was.....he probably just wanted us to eat, tip him and have someone else in his booth. We would never go to this 'overrated' establishment again, ....well maybe when we are gray-haired and use a it seems most of the clientele at this restaurant were... more

Unforgettable garlic mashed pots & porkchops! 1/22/2010

Having left the lovely State of CA 14 yrs. ago, I've still not forgotten KM's pork chops & garlic mashed potatoes!!! The absolute best flavor and perfectly cooked dish ever! I miss them still so very much. Pros: Quality, atmosphere, location Cons: Immediate seating for well known, not general public more

If you have a problem with Gift Cards 8/1/2009

I had a problem with expiring gift cards and took it up with the owners. If you have gift card which does not have an expiration date printed on the card, and yet they will not honor the card, remind them that the owners have promised to comply with the law, which says that expiring gift cards must have a clearly printed expiration date on the card. Pros: good food Cons: If you have a problem with Gift Cards more

Just a Glorified Diner 7/27/2008

We were not impressed with this place at all. It was 8pm and many diners had already left but we still had to wait quite a while before hostess came. She walked us through the restaurant which was in an absolute state of mess. No excuse for that! Pros: Open space, casual Cons: Pricey, uncleaned tables, mediocre service more

wasn't impressed... 7/7/2008

i was there last thursday and WHY did they run out of half the menu?? everything we wanted to place a order on was not was average and the service was ok but they need to stock their kitchen!! more


My friend, her boyfriend and I LOVE it and go quite often! Pros: There is something for everyone and it all tastes great!!!! more

Great for brunch and the Burger is AMAZING 1/30/2008

Come to Kate Mantilini's for two things: more

This place is so great and really lives up to it's reputation! 1/24/2008

I hardly ever get out to this side of town and am actually a true native of old-town Pasadena restaurants, however a gal's got to eat, right?! Well I was so pleased that I did happen to eat here; the food was delicious and came out quickly and it was reasonably priced to my surprise. I thought the servers attitudes were right on with the surroundings (I mean, come on it IS Beverly Hills) if anyone has dined here and taken it personally, they should give it another go. Pros: The kickback-with-fine-dining feel & appeal more

Extensive menu & kid-friendly 10/10/2007

I've come here several times with different members of my extended family and we've always left happy and full. The menu is extensive and has been delicious so far, and my kids were treated very well. This seems to be a great date place as well as being family-friendly. more

""Would be actors provide would be serivce"" 7/29/2007

The food was fairly good. There are no complaints here about that, but the service was enough to turn the most loyal customer away. On a particular day, I committed the cardinal error of asking the waiter the price of one of the specials. He told me, ""If you have to ask, you don't belong here."" Later I asked another question and when the waiter walked away, he gave me a ""dirty look."" My daughter, a doctor, who was with me at the time went to speak to the manager. As she said, ""I'm allowed to treat you that way when I'm angry with you, Mom, but no one else is!"" The manager could have cared less and was absolutely rude to both of us, two professional women. Come to think of it, no one deserves that treatment, professional or not. I had been there before this particular incident and found the servers much the same, ""would be actors, providing would be service!"" Pros: Food Cons: Service, service, service more

overwhelming menu and portions 4/22/2007

I took one look at the menu and was immediately overwhelmed. It was enormous and quite varied, which I suppose is typical of a diner. And that's exactly what Kate's is; an upscale diner. True to diner form, the portions were large (I had the meatloaf and took half of it home) yet enjoyable. My companions also liked their meals (garden burger, pasta with broccoli, and rotisserie chicken). There were two things that stood out to us, the placemats and the service. The placemats were plastic with ""Kate Mantilini"" cut out of the top. And the service was great. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful when discussing the menu. In addition, she saw us struggling to divide the bill and offered to split it for us. Overall it was an enjoyable meal. Pros: large menu selection, good service Cons: large menu selection more

Late night burgers... 9/5/2006

I can't vouch for anything else on the menu except the burgers--Kate Mantilini is the best place in LA to get a FABULOUS burger and a bottle of red. My foodie hubby and I have been twice a month all summer. A delish burger for $10 (with blue cheese), you can't beat it. Fries are extra, yes, but they're worth it, too (frenchy style, skinny and crispy). Waiters are attentive and friendly--the antithesis of LA snooty. more

Good for the right crowd 7/2/2006

I went to Kate Mantilini as a 21 year old college student, nicely dressed, and very polite. However, the hostess and waiter treated me as though I was a 5 year old about to run into the dessert tray. We were all but ignored by the waiter, who rushed us out the door before we finished swallowing. They brought us bread that was burned to a crisp, an obvious accident that never would have appeared on the table of the older couple next to us. The food is a great combination of comfort and high-end, but is extremely expensive. It is a good place for a date, but if you want good service, wait until you're at least 30. Pros: Unique, tasty food Cons: Poor service, expensive more

Love It 6/15/2006

I've been enjoying an occasional lunch or dinner here for years. I've always found the service very good and the prices, while not ""cheap"", are quite reasonable for the area and the quality of the food served. more

Great Sunday classic breakfast in LA !! 5/1/2006

I have been going 1 to 2 times a month for breakfast on Sundays for the last 5 years (along with my little girl and wife) and I have only good things to say about this restaurant. The service is most of the time great, the staff is very friendly and accomodating. The food is perfection, best eggs benedict in town. I am proud to take friends with us there. Another plus is it's a great restaurant that is actually child friendly which is hard to find in this city! more

RIP OFF 1/28/2006

Rude maitre d'. Their policy is not to seat anyone until the ENTIRE party arrives, so, if (as in our case) the fourth person is late, everyone else is left standing. Apparently, they assume all people who sit at tables without ordering right away are slackers. The crowd is middle-aged and stupid looking. The kind who will pay $70 per ticket to watch a bad play. Lots of big hair and bad makeup. Took forever to get our food (what there was of it) and then we were 'accidentally' overcharged by our inattentive waiter. Since when is dining out supposed to be a strenuous workout? All that armwaving to get our waiter's attention, whew! Next time I'll bring a red flag. Any restaurant in this city with a 'name' is a tourist trap, and this place is no exception. Oh, and the place has no class. NONE. Cons: All more

ok 1/2/2006

Really good food on certain days (like when they on Thursdays have Osso Bucco and Fridays have Veal Milanese) and some other dishes all the time but what's about the prices? It is certainly not $$ as Citysearch suggests. More $$$. Wort it? Perhaps. I think so. Pros: Some good food, Late nite Cons: Noisy, Inexperienced staff, Pricey more
