Contemporary American
We are an eclectic Los Angeles restaurant, located in Koreatown, heralded for its creativity and genre-defying cuisine. Their first restaurant together, owners Lien Ta and Chef Jonathan Whitener opened Here's Looking At You in 2016. Named a "Restaurant of the Year" by Food & Wine Magazine and one of Eater National's "38 Most Essential Restaurants," HLAY was also the subject of author Patric Kuh's "Becoming a Restaurateur." After four magical years as a small independent restaurant, COVID-19 would force its forever closure. But 17 months later, fate would have it that the community would come together to help resurrect this very special restaurant. Thanks to you, Here's Looking At You is back.

    Delicious, inventive food. Chef clearly knows how to add an assortment of complementary flavors to small plates to bring out the best in the main event. Would absolutely go back to experience this special place again.

    Had a wonderful experience and our server was such a delight. We’ve been wanting to try HLAY since we moved to LA a year and a half ago and so happy we finally made it. From the menu presentation to the cocktails…one of the best martinis I had, simple yet crisp and well balanced so I got 2, and finally to the food. It’s a small menu but everything was executed 10/10.

    Over all super cute experience. The food has so much flavor and story. So fun to eat and drink and hang out there. Our server was so kind and helpful with guiding the meal and so patient with two silly girls at dinner. Love a small plate restaurant!

    The food is innovative and delicious. The owner greeted us warmly and our server was attentive and informative. This is our second time at HLAY and we couldn't be happier. We enjoyed staying there late enough this time to try the happy hour menu and their terrific burger!

    The food is always great. The chicken liver and the dry-aged lamb with citrus were standouts. And the cocktails are excellent.

    Go for the drinks, but probably not the food. The food seemed hit or miss to us, but more miss than hit. If you do order food, the steak tartar was the best thing we had and actually quite good. That said, the drinks, waitstaff, and ambiance are all wonderful. Our take: have a couple of pre or post dinner drinks, but find somewhere else to eat.
