this streetside cafe is great to feel like you're in Paris Pros: cute patio, great food Cons: long wait sometimes, portions are tiny


Other than the ambiance and the cozy Euro cafe feel, all I can say is this: I DON'T GET IT. (Oh, and this is coming from someone who LOVES The Little Door). Pros: Cute Outdoo...

france's gift to LA 3/31/2010

i love this place!! it gives you a chance to relax and enjoy great food and wine. we started with fois grass which the waiter recommended and he couldn't have been more right!!! so needless to say we left it up to him to suggest the rest!! he followed with escargot ...they were delicious!!! the smell of garlic and herbs served in these cute plates was superb and went very well with my glass of french chardonnay. since we were there at 4pm we took full advantage of wine and dine special with help from the most attentive waiter who recommended gnocchi with truffle. the dish was perfection!!! the delicate texture of gnocchi and creaminess of the sauce toped with black truffle made the perfect transition to something this case our knowledgble waiter recomended the endive salad with blue cheese and walnuts. Pros: great food and amazing service more

Best Nicoise Salad 1/15/2010

Can't or won't go to Little Door? Try Little Next Door. I've been in several times but the last time, I had the French classic Nicoise Salad and it was absolutely wonderful. Fresh lettuce, perfectly seared tuna, crisp beans. The only weird thing were the potatoes because they looked like mango wedges. I kept expecting to eat mango (hello, it's Nicoise!) but now I'm wondering if that could be a California take on the classic. Otherwise, it's a wonderful salad. Pros: Nicoise salad Cons: can be very busy more

""Whatever"" 11/30/2008

Other than the ambiance and the cozy Euro cafe feel, all I can say is this: I DON'T GET IT. (Oh, and this is coming from someone who LOVES The Little Door). Pros: Cute Outdoor Cafe Cons: Tiny portions; taste is blah; overpriced more

Mayo is NOT ketchup 9/14/2008

We love the atmosphere that comes with outdoor eating and French cafes are usually on the top of our list. So with that said, we decided to try LDND for brunch in addition to the fact that we have enjoyed the LD for dinner. Well, we were definitely extremely disappointed. The service was attitudey and pretty sub par. If you needed to find someone for a drink refill or anything else...good luck. It took about 10 minutes just to ask someone on the wait staff for what we needed and an excessive amount of additional time to actually get it. I ordered soup and an omelette and they came at the exact same time. Obviously I can't eat them together so one if going to be cold by the time I get to it. It's just not intelligent for any waiter to do that. Then the melette was pretty tasteless, so I figured I'd put some ketchup on it to make it more edible. I asked the waiter for it and was told 'We don't have kechup'. I laughed figuring he was joking until he repeated it again. He offered me mayo. Awesome! That's what I want on my eggs....mayonaisse. And my husband wanted ketchup on his French Fries - not exactly unreasonable. So while I get that this is a French restaurant, I think it fails to realize it's in LA which is in America. In America we use ketchup and to not carry it is not only snooty, but just not customer service oriented at all. I'd rather go somewhere that is interested in pleasing the customer over than upholding a reputation of some sort. You can count us out...forever. Pros: Atmosphere is decent Cons: Awful customer service more

Croque Madame's 6/30/2008

I love the food here. Its wonderful. I go here every Sunday and I love the vibe and the people watching. You can't forget to order the pain Chocolate or the Croque Madame. They are to die for. Try them out. You won't regret it! Cons: parking more

Truly a French Experience 6/20/2008

Sunday brunch is good here if you like hustle, bustle, and gossip, ?LA? style. Don?t expect to spend hours brunching. On weekdays, go to lunch here before going to the LACMA. ?Little Next Deal? is the best for the price- soup, salad, half sandwich and a macaron. Their croissant amande and Pain au chocolat are just like the patisseries in Paris. Macarons are expensive, but I prefer them to Boule. I did once have an omelets which was small, overpriced and not worth it. Service in general was okay, but I felt somewhat rushed on Sunday. For lunch, however, they were more accommodating. Come here to enjoy the taste of the food in true french style (i.e. portions are small). Not for the ravenous. Pros: Great atmosphere and vibe Cons: Servers can be rude more

French all the way to unfriendly service.. 6/1/2008

I enjoyed my food but I think my expectations were a bit heightened. I ordered the crab sandwich which turned out to be an open faced and half the amount of food I thought it would be. Then I shared a beet salad with my friend which feature both red and golden baby beets and a smooth crumbled cheese: delicious. She ordered the steak frites which was good. Pros: Nice ambience Cons: slow, unfriendly service more

never again 5/29/2008

one good thing about this place: the ambience is great, and that's why i went there last week for the first time. more

Great Food and Well Worth the Wait. 5/23/2008

I first ate at ""Little Next Door"" about two years ago with Robert Wagner and Chris Aable. We enjoyed all the dishes thoroughly and we all agreed it was like dining in France all over again. We've since been back many times, as have others I've recommended this place to: Will Smith and Bruce Willis among them. The French pastries are wonderful and authentic, as good as the ones served in Paris. Apparently a lot of locals agree with our assessment of their wonderful food, because the place is always busy, but well wort the wait. Pros: Great food for a European Experience. Cons: The food takes time, but all good things do. more

A-MA-ZING 5/21/2008

Ive been to this place many times -- i have had not exceptional service & long waits for food. But i will continue to go because the food & ambiance are amazing! any negatives are outweighed by the many, many positives. Their for sale wine collection is extremely reasonably priced and well thought out. The owner knows what he is talking about and very approachable and friendly. It can get expensive fast -- but i would much rather spend the money there, than walking across the street to Toast . more

Ignorance= bad reviews 4/28/2008

I have read many negative reviews about the Little Next Door and all I can say, quite frankly, is... calm down! You all sound like typical Californians: all about in-and-out, instant gratification, gimme gimme gimme, NOW. Pros: Food, Atmosphere Cons: Parking more


Having dined at ""The Little Door"" restaurant I was expecting a great experience...boy was I wrong! After waiting for menus and water the waitress appeared to be nonchalant about the order. Other tables received bread after ordering, and never received any at our table. Food was brought to table and part of the order was forgotten and informed runner about the missing item. After 10 minutes the waitress came over and said that it was on the way, after another ten minute wait it was finally brought to the table (a cold salad with no preparation). At no time were we offered another beverage or asked how everything was. At this point was very ready to leave and asked for the check, after waiting for about ten minutes the waitress continued to wait on other tables and ignored the request for a check. When approached she asked if we were in a hurry and felt like saying ""Yes, to get out of here!"" Would not go back until there is a serious change in service! Pros: Nice space with a Continental feeling Cons: Service is poor more

avoid this restaurant 3/16/2008

We would never go back to LITTLE NEXT DOOR RESTAURANT. Found this restaurant by chance, had a lot of people eating and looked like a real trendy place to have an early dinner. My wife and I ordered the same item, a combo of soup, salad and sandwich. The mushroom and onion soup was very good, then it went down hill very fast from there. The food was not very tasty and the service was horrible,the worst I've had in a very long time. The food is over priced and servers need to be better trained. Pros: comfortable looking place to have a lunch Cons: not very tasty food, very bad service, overpriced more

HAIR in my food, over 2 hrs to have lunch, zero service, valet pulled up on his cell phone.... 1/1/2008

Where do I even start with this poor excuse of a plce to eat? The Little Door is amazing but this place is disgusting. A black curly hair tucked into my Croque Madame, over 2 hrs to have lunch, we saw the server once during this time, asked multiple times for the outdoor heater to be turned on, my date had to go get the check, we weren't informed of the shift change and got lost in the shuffle, the valet pulled up on his cell phone and our 1/4 tank of gas was gone and the gas light on. Need I say more??? Pros: My date! Cons: HAIR in my food, no service, valet took our car for a drive. more
