Check out reviews from our Great Kosher Restaurant Foodies Facebook Group:
La Gondola was a beautiful restaurant to dine in on a weeknight. The parking was easy and inexpensive compared to some other LA restaurants. I'm glad I had a made a reservation because the place was packed by 8pm. The staff was kind and helpful the entire evening. The atmosphere was loud and elegant at the same time. Definitely a place for families with children. We ordered the Antipasto De La Casa, BBQ Beef Ribs, and the Chicken Tapas. The food arrived quickly and it was presented beautifully. The Antipasto consisted of stuffed grape leaves, olives, mushrooms, peppers, and eggplant salads. This dish is for people who enjoy salty food. One order of the BBQ ribs was more than enough for two people. The ribs and chicken tapas were delicious. La Gondola is nice break from cooking.
I took my family for dinner at La Gondola and I must say the food and service was above and beyond, their menu had something for everyone nice portions and not only we will go again we are going to have La Gondola cater our 25th Anniversary =) Thank you La Gondola

M. Schwartz- 04/12/09 The BEST GLATT Kosher in Southern California. You would never know it's Kosher, as it's one of the best Italian and steak places, period (so my non-Kosher friends tell me). Such wonderful appetizers and entrees and at such reasonable prices. You cannot get food like this on the Westside at such prices, anywhere. Truly a gem. And Nir will take such good care of you. Trust me, you should run here for a wonderful meal and good times.
Reply #1 submitted by: Elan Kornblum, Publisher on 05/13/08 Are you talking about their own website or their page on our site? Keep in mind that they just moved but nevertheless, we do not post prices on our site for any of the restaurants, because they change frequently. But we often post their PDF menus if they send it to us.
FYI: Their prices are pretty god for an upscale restaurant.
Reply #2 submitted by: George on 12/08/08 The restaurant has good food.
The prices and portion sixes have been adjusted
due to performing business with a Beverly Hills address.
