Good food and good jazz music at Spazio 10/27/2009

sallyfromthevally Provided by Partner
I can't believe some of the reviews I am reading here! I've always been treated well at Spazio. The first time I came here, the owner sat us right in front of the stage which was awesome. The second time we asked to be seated in the back for dinner. I recommend their French Onion soup! more

Awful evening 10/4/2009

good eats Provided by Partner
My husband and I and another couple went to Spazio for dinner last Saturday night. I called to make a reservation and the person taking the call explained that there is a cover charge for the live music but if you eat dinner it is waived. When we got there we were told in order not to pay the $10 per person cover charge you have to sit outside. This was never mentioned over the phone. It was too cold to sit outside so we decided to pay the cover charge and sit inside. In addition, we had 2 coupons - one for each couple since we requested separate bills. They would only let us use one of the coupons and would not budge. To add insult to injury we were asked not to talk during the live performance – which basically lasted the whole dinner. Management was rude, service was slow and the food was very expensive. Overall a horrible experience. Will never go there again! more

Jazz Heartbreak 8/30/2009

jazzist Provided by Partner
I have gone to this Venue several times. After all, some great people gig there. Little by little word on the street is DO NOT GIG THERE, EVER! The bartender is the only real person in the entire establishment. If however you are the sort of person to go someplace to stroke your ignorant ego, THIS IS YOUR KIND OF PLACE! iF YOU LIKE TO BE OVERCHARGED FOR FOOD AND DRINK in order to feel better than everyone else you will just LOVE this spot. If you are the guy or gal who is quite certain that your bathroom never stinks my friend, you have found your perfect spot. If you are at all REAL and Love Jazz and the Artists that create this incredible idiom - PLEASE PLEASE AVOID AT ALL COSTS !!!! Pros: Elegant room and patio Cons: Snobby, superior, elitist attitude prevails!! more

Good Music, Great Atmosphere, Thursday Nights 7/31/2009

StillinLA18 Provided by Partner
Thursday nights is a great night to go out and have a drink with friends. Spazio's has some great options. Inside, live jazz, and a little formal. Outside, a DJ playing everything from Deep house to the Jackson Five and everything in between. The patio is wonderful. Every song that came on I said, "I Love this Song!" Together with their Late night happy our, you just cant go wrong on a Thursday. Pros: Great outside patio, well poured drinks, Great Music Cons: Entrees a little pricey more

Spazio's 7/8/2009

cd8me Provided by Partner
I went to Spazio's to enjoy an evening of great music and delicious food and was shocked when my expectations were surpassed. I cam in around 8:30 p.m. on a Tuesday evening and was pleasantly surprised to see a packed bar. The bartender was very proficient and well versed in the world of spirits. The food was absolutely fabulous. I started with the Tuna Tartar and it melted in my mouth. I then followed it with the Mediteranean Fettucine and was astonished at the taste. A real treat for anyone looking for a great evening. I will be back alot. Pros: Best bartender in America more

Best Martini Ever!!!! 6/18/2009

BookerB Provided by Partner
Driving up and down Ventura Blvd, I always see this place, and they just put up new Happy Hour signs that grabbed my eye. So I went in by myself to see what the hype was all about. I was greeted by a beautiful friendly I think Russian hostess who was classy and helpful who said I can do Happy Hour at the bar. I then met a very cool bartender who was from NY like myself (always nice). I was not sure what I wanted and she suggested a Espresso Martini, and wow!!!! That got me, plus the half off Kobe sliders really got the spot. The place was very elegant with a good vibe, def a place I want to come to for a romantic evening! Pros: Friendly Staff Beautiful AMBIANCE Cons: Closed too Early more

Service at McDonald's is better; so is the food 5/30/2009

usconner Provided by Partner
Last night I was in the mood for Italian food and my boyfriend suggested Spazio. He said he had been there a year or so ago and the experience had been a good one. Well, a lot has changed in a year. And I wish I had read the most recent user reviews on this site. The service was almost non-existent and when it was there, it was terrible. The food was mediocre at best, but we didn't even eat it all because the way my boyfriend and I were treated, made us lose our appetites. My boyfriend and I have both worked in restaurants before and understand how many times and in many different ways things can go wrong. But this was a time when everything went wrong and nobody at Spazio took responsibility for it. There were problems with the kitchen, the servers and the management. It is not okay to allow your patrons to wait for 10 - 20 minutes for water and to order. It is not okay to bring out one appetizer and then wait 20 minutes to bring out the other one and having the patron ask three times for the missing appetizer. It is not okay to make patrons wait for 15 minutes for their check after they have asked for it twice (as I overheard at the disgruntled table next to us), NOR is it okay to blame the patron for your own mistake. And certainly, it is not okay to come up and ask the table that you have neglected all night, if you can take something off the check to make us for the horrible service they have received. You either have the manager take something off or you ignore the situation, but you do not put the customer in that position! Obviously, we are never returning to Spazio and will let others know that they should not waste their money on a place that has no respect for food and their customers. Pros: nothing Cons: everything more

A very special night out 4/25/2009

cd8me Provided by Partner
I recently spent an evening of great music, well-poured drinks, and delicious food at Spazio's in Sherman Oaks,CA. I was very satisfied with the Stardust Martini as well as the Pistacio Crusted Salmon and the bartender made me feel at home. The music was pleasant and I even recognized some of the songs. I would come back again and again. I was told that Spazio's will be offering a Happy Hour starting in May. In addition, they were very excited about their upcoming wine tasting evenings. I almost forgot but the desserts at Spazio's are extraordinary. They offer a "Profiterole" made from scratch and tastes like Heaven. Spazio's is a gem hidden in San Fernando Valley. Pros: Bartender knows how to impress Cons: Not very many if any at all more

Another Victim... 2/16/2009

thutmose7656 Provided by Partner
As mentioned... Recent service and food was horrible, no doubt. But the real disappointment was the lack of response by management. Restaurants have bad nights, we know that. And sometimes the staff is required to actually do their jobs and make customers feel comfortable, regardless of their problems in the kitchen. Management should do us all favor and resign. Respect your hard-earned money enough to not throw it away on businesses that don't deserve it. more

Another Valentines Day Victim 2/15/2009

Cani12 Provided by Partner
We too were victims of this Valentines Day embarrassment. After waiting almost 45 minutes for our first drink, I couldn't help but feel relieved that my boyfriend and I have been dating for some time. Because I honestly don't know how any couple could have survived and handled this disaster with the dignified behavior required during the 'getting to know you' phase. And if your relationship was on the rocks before you walked in, I am almost certain it is now more strained than ever. The service was non existent. The food was mediocre at best and some dishes, we strongly suspect, were microwaved. Once other couples started leaving, the wait staff had more time to dedicate to each table and it appeared that the managers thought the best thing to do at this point was attempt to overwhelm us with champagne top ups. Perhaps we might get too drunk to remember these good times? Sadly, we did not. In addition to the bad food and service, the place was extremely cold. I, like other lady guests, was wearing a dress for the occasion and was forced to cover up with my winter coat. I saw others do the same. Not a classy look when indoors at a fancy jazz restaurant. I felt bad for the wait staff who were clearly having a tough time, but in the end we were paying to be there and had the right to expect better. Especially when being charged $95 per person, before tax and tip (gratuity not optional. How clever!). Almost 3 hours later, my boyfriend and I finally departed, proud of having survived the ordeal and certain never to return to Spazio. Pros: If you have a good sense of humor, lots to laugh about Cons: Romance comes here to die more

Don't go for Valentine's Dinner 2/14/2009

gcagirl Provided by Partner
Spazio did a horrible job for Valentine's Day. It appears they didn't hire enough staff yet charged an unbelievable amount of money for the lack of service. To make sure we didn't have the choice of how much of a tip to leave, they added an 18% service charge to the bill. The total came to $240.00 for two of us. Although they called it a five course dinner, there was hardly any food on the plates. Also, we had to ask several times for bread and water. I've had some good dining experiences at Spazio in the past but the last two times were poor. Pros: Easy Parking Cons: Price, Service more

The worst dining experience we've ever had 2/14/2009

Patient88 Provided by Partner
This is the most horrible dining experience I have ever had. The hostesses were the rudest, UN-friendliest ever to great you at the door...........We?re here last night to celebrate Valentine?s Day. Our reservation we?re at 7:30 PM. We didn?t leave from there until 10:00 PM. This is no joke........Never once did our waiter, Cal, ever came to our table to ask how anything was. We had to ask for bread, for water, and the rest of our food. I had to ask the other waitress if she can go to the kitchen to get our food..............They put out shuttle tables to accommodate the added traffic for the holiday. We sat in the middle of a heavily traffic aisle with regular table on both sides, by the bar. The table measured 2.5' dia and sways side to side every time you lift your glass...........We requested to be seated elsewhere and was told they won't do that or they'll have to do it for everyone else. You're stuck because they've already taken your CC and they'll charge it if you didn't honor your rseervation..........The only thing worst than the food is the service...........The Bill. For two we were charged $272.00. When the waiter brought us the bill, he had automatically given himself a 20% tip. To add insult to injury, the restaurant then charged you tax AFTER the tip was added to your bill............We dine out quite often and this is the absolute worst dining experience we have ever had. Anywhere. Pros: Good parking Cons: Everything you could possibly think of a bad dining experience more

Love the bar and patio 8/3/2008

mcritique08 Provided by Partner
Awesome time. Every time. Best bartender in the valley, hands down. Kassey serves up the best (strong) drinks time after time(not to mention her gorgeous bod too!) Can't go wrong with endless entertainment!! Although we try to find new Friday after work hangouts, we always seem to end up back at Spazio's. Fun time. Not one complaint. If you ever end up drinking a little more than planned, she always has the H20 gun on quick draw. Best looking staff in all of LA!! Recommend dining only either on the patio or at the bar-as this is where you'll get best service. Wait staff is dining room is a bit too bland for my taste. We'll be coming back every Friday that we can as long as our girl Kass is behind the bar!! Pros: Live Music, Food, Bartender Cons: Price more

BEST KEPT SECRET IN THE VALLEY! 7/27/2008

kaml Provided by Partner
SPAZIO IS SIMPLY AMAZING! I felt like I was on an exclusive vacation the other night when dining at Spazio! From the moment I walked in, I was greeted by the pleasant, friendly and beautiful host staff. They were prompt to seat me and accomodate my seating request. From there, my fabulous waitress promptly greeted me with a warm and welcoming smile. She excitedly described the specials and mentioned a few of her favorite entrees from the menu. Next, she gave me a taste of her favorite recommended red wine by the glass, BV Tapestry. She was right - It was phenomenal and I consumed three glasses by the end of the night! Her enthusiasm for me to have a wonderful eveing was evident as it was in the entire staff who seemed friendly to all their customers. The food is as outstanding as the music! I had the Tuna Tar Tar and Crabcakes to start, followed by the Pistacio Crusted Salmon - WOW! It was a party in my mouth! To close the evening, I had the gateu au chocolate, which is THE BEST chocolate flourless cake I have ever had in my life. WOW! What a night! The valet was reasonable, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. Spazio is my new stomping ground! Pros: atmosphere, quality, price Cons: none more
