Yummy ribs! 11/11/2011

Best ribs in LA. Not to mention the cornbread were amazing too. Had a great time with friends here last night. Great atmosphere and service. Cant wait to go back more

No corking fee makes this place 5 stars! 11/8/2010

Alright, this should be a pretty simple review. Bandera is one of my favorite restaurants in LA! There is no corking fee, so feel free to bring your favorite bottle of wine. The food is outstanding, and honestly I have to say the prime rib is better than some other better known establishments in Beverly Hills (you know who I am talking about!). So, great food, no corking fee and a hip and swanky bar area with a piano player equals one of my favorite destinations in LA. more

Best Ribs in town. 11/5/2010

The best beef ribs with little fat.It's so good that they don't even put it on the menu since too many people order it. more

Perfect 7/13/2009

This place is awesome! The service and food are excellent. They have live jazz music many nights and you can bring in a bottle of wine void of any corkage fee. It really saves you a ton of money, considering the type of food you can order there. They do a great job with every aspect of their business. Living next door to them is a great perk of the neighborhood. Pros: Food, service, no corkage fee Cons: Can be a wait more

awesome new salad! 4/14/2009

I have loved this place for a long a time, but I went the other night and had a new salad, with chicken, avocado, goat cheese, veggies and the most amazing cornbread croutons! Yummmmmm Pros: solid menu, creative seasonal additions more

Great Food! 2/23/2009

Bandera has become a staple in the restaurants that I frequent in LA. The food is fantastic, but I usually don't stray to far from the tuna poke, macho salad, and banana pie for dessert. But when I do stray everything I have tried has been great. Also, you can bring in your own bottle of wine for dinner which can really make a difference in your bill at the end of the night. My friends and I go here a lot and the only bad thing I can say is that if you don't have a reservation you have to wait a long time, but the plus side is that there is usually good people watching and great live music being played. Pros: No Corkage Fee Cons: Long wait if you don't have a reservation more

Uh, can you say 11/4/2008

Yum. Filet Mignon with bernaise... delicious. I went there with some girlfriends and we all had a great time. Every one of us loved what we ordered. I think it was the first time my high maintenance friends didn't send their food back. The ribs were ridiculously good. They also have a jazz trio, it was a really nice touch. Pros: The food and the drinks were great. Cons: The only thing I can think of was that it was kind of dark. more

Hot Rotiserie; Lamb,Chicken. Good enchiladas. Atmosphere. 9/14/2008

Freshly carved leg of lamb, right off of the rotisserie is available. Drinks are usually good, but take forever to get. Pros: Atmosphere, corkage, great wait staff, live music at times. Cons: Busy more

Great food, great atmosphere 4/28/2008

The service and ambiance in this place is fantastic. I've been here several times, and the best meals were the burger and the steak/enchilada combo. The only meal I didn't think was worth the $$$ was the chicken. Whenever my gf and I feel like going to a fancier place, this is always our first choice. more

consistently excellent 4/8/2008

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I've been going to Bandera for years and have never been disappointed. I LOVE IT! The atmosphere is very nice; live jazz and a professional crowd (for the most part). Everything on the menu is excellent. You really can't go wrong. My favorite is the amazing prime rib. The ribs are awesome too, macho salad is sooo good, yummy corn bread, and the deserts are great. I love the banana cream pie and the coffee is really, really good (I called to ask what kind it is and got it)! Also, the wine selection is nice and they are generous with the pours (gotta love that!). The prices aren't too bad. I meet my friends often for dinner and we bring our own bottle of wine (NO CORKAGE FEE at the tables). The service has always been terrific. I've never had a problem; food comes fast and servers are very nice. If you ask for one, they'll even give you a bone to bring home to your dog. My dog goes crazy for them!! I took my family when they visited from out of town and they loved it too. My boyfriend said he didn't like steak/prime rib until he had the prime rib at Bandera (he loves it there). If you are a meat-lover, this is the place to go!! They take reservations, and I suggest making them (there can be a long wait at times). more

Great Place for Steaks and Drinks 4/5/2008

This is a quality place. There are nicer places in town, but it hits above the mark in every category. The price, the quality of food and the atmosphere are all great. I always take out of town guests here. Definitely recommend! Pros: steaks Cons: can be crowded more

LOVE IT!!! 6/30/2007

My husband and I absolutely love this place! Great place to just stop in for a drink and listen to the live music, or to have a romantic dinner. The food is amazing! I am a vegetarian and I love getting the veggie platter...they let you choose from their sides so I always get a different combination of things, and I've never disliked anything that I have tried. Their mac & cheese is to die for! My husband is a big meat eater and he has loved everything he's had as well. The service is always very friendly too! Pros: Delicious food, great service! more

OUTSTANDING! 6/7/2007

Great place for any occasion. Fun grown-up place with live music and comfortable atmosphere. Excellent food, beverages, bartenders and wait staff. more

This place is great. 5/1/2007

I really like the food here and have been here many times. I love the macho salad and the tuna poke. The big comfy booths are the best. In the center is a large bar and it attracts a slightly older, single crowd. My boyfriend likes the burger here. The chicken is great. The desserts are great too. The only thing that I have ever tried that I did not like was the lamb, it was disgusting. My friend ordered it and we all hated it. Pros: great food, great ambience, nice servers Cons: can get pricey and busy depending on when you get there more

Great staple 12/30/2006

Always have a great meal at Bandera. You can't go wrong with the Grilled Artichoke or Macho Salad. The staff is helpful and attentive. Pros: live music, artichoke, booth seating more

Amazing Grilled Artichoke Heart! 11/7/2006

It's a little cheesy at the bar with the aging cougars hovering over the 30 something men in their suits and ties but the smell is delicious. Must tries are the Grilled Artichoke Heart and the Tuna Poke. The portions are great and prices resonable with good service. more

One of my FAVORITES 11/2/2006

This place is right down the street from my house, and it's one of my favorite places to have a good meal. This place is rocking all week long, and the food is great. They have a different jazz band that plays, and it has a great bar scene. The duo dip is one of my favorites and the macho salad is untoucable.....roasted chicken, goat cheese, dates, and avocado....do I need to say anything more. Pros: Great Bar Scene Cons: wait more

Good bar scene, good food 11/1/2006

This restaurant has a very happening bar scene for the location. It is a great place to go just for a drink or to eat - the food is GREAT. Way better than it's sister, Houstons. more

Awesome Food, Good Prices, Fun Bar 10/30/2006

Probably my favorite restaurant in West LA! Can't say anything bad about this place, but be prepared to wait 20-30 minutes... more
