Great decor and ambiance. The mezcal cocktail I had was so delicious! I also recommend the short rib dish. Excellent!

I come here somewhat often, so I’ll chalk this up as a one off. Food was simply not good. Fried chicken sandwich tasted like it’d been sitting out all day. Batter was burnt and the chicken was really dry.

We were looking for a lively place with great food and drinks, kid-friendly but still feeling hip, to meet an old friend while we were visiting LA--Mohawk Bend was perfect. The pizzas were fantastic: great flavors, perfect crust, high quality ingredients. Incredible local beer selection, I was sending photos of the draft list to my beer nerd friends. When the bill came we were kind of shocked how low it was, and had to double check that they charged us right. Absolutely will go again next time I'm in LA.

The Angry Vegan pizza (added vegan pepperoni), the artichoke tacos, the chili fries with avocado and the drinks were delicious! We are coming back again as soon as possible.

Great for families as lots of space so you don’t feel like you’re disturbing other diners. Really cool, you can tell it used to be a theatre and it’s amazing to see.

Second time here. Caught happy hour which was awesome as they have $2 off every one of their 60+ draft beers. Food is amazing - whether vegan or vegetarian or neither. Love the back room with the two story high ceiling and old brick walls.

Was not pleased with the service as our waiter forgot our order. We were comp for our first round of drinks for the inconvenience, but we we are still dissatisfied. Food was alright, nothing to brag about. The place looked amazing and they do have great selection of beers.

I made a reservation for six at 3pm on a Saturday. we were squeezed in with uneven tables even though there were tables available that just needed to be cleared. Then we were given menus for Brunch that ended at 3pm and were told that between 3 and 4 only a few items were available. Not happy since we came here for the varied selection. Not the fault of the service staff but a heads up when the reservation was made would have been helpful.

My daughter is vegan and had wanted to go for a long time so we went on her birthday. They also serve non vegan food. The building is fabulous- old with a great history. Service was not as attentive as it could have been considering our time was at 9 and a lot of the people had cleared or were close to leaving. We shared vegan and non vegan food and all agreed it was a disappointment. Execution and flavor need work.

I'm obsessed with this restaurant. From Sunday brunch to Saturday evening date night, I love coming here for any occasion. The food comes out super quick and they have an extensive beer menu. Also, I got a margarita after my beer and it was delicious - so you just can't go wrong.

Booked this reservation in advanced for an end of vacation outing with coworkers, based off of online reviews and pictures of the place. The buffalo cauliflower was a good appetizer, but that’s pretty much where it stopped. We got the Brussels sprouts appetizer which had a taste to it similar to cleaning products. The main courses came out and nobody was happy with their meal except for one person who said the pizza wasn’t terrible, but we were starving so we ate anyway. I personally got the grain bowl with vegan almond cheese and again it had a taste that I could only describe as cleaning products, I only took a few bites of that and didn’t bother taking the rest home. My main regret was not speaking up to the server or manager while we were there and sending the dishes back. We didn’t want to create a problem as it was our last night in CA and we just wanted to get out of there. The ambiance was very nice, our server was nice enough. For the amount we spent, it definitely was not worth the money.

Great ambiance! The area outside and inside and back area are all great spots. The food is good. Some of the sides are very basic. But I would definitely go back.

I have been to Mohawk bend countless times before but this most recent visit was really disappointing. I don’t know if it’s because it was dine la week or if it was because it was football Sunday but my food was not what I was expecting. The buffalo cauliflower was perfect, but the fried chicken sandwich was dry and over cooked, part of the skin were even burnt and too crispy. Also the fries were cold. I will still go back because I’ve had other better experiences, so I’m willing to give them another chance.

Dine LA Review:

Brussels sprouts - undercooked, difficult to digest
Crab cakes - delicious
The Big Mohawk burger - excellent
Cauliflower steak - undercooked, hard to cut
Cookie pie - odd, like cornbread with five chocolate chips in it
S'mores - smaller version of the dessert, marshmallows cooled too fast in porcelain dish

Service was great but food was sub par. I think the kitchen was having an off day. Sent the steak back for being raw (it was even cold) and it came back over cooked. Other dishes were OK but very oily. Again, it could have been an off day.

Mohawk Bend is beautiful - went for Saturday brunch and it wasnt too crowded or loud. Bloody Mary was a little too spicy. Food was good but not unique enough to justify the price in my opinion. Service is great.

Took a friend here for brunch and we ate and enjoyed the atmosphere so long we cut well into 2 hrs. .the other guest must have felt the same because no one seemed to want to leave. I love the fireplace & portion sizes. .see you soon Mohawk 😊

Really enjoyed the meal and the experience here. Vegan dishes better than non-vegan but still good overall. Would definitely come back for those artichoke “crab cakes” and the Garden cocktail. Excellent!

This was a great find! Came here on a few recommendations and it did not disappoint! Staff was very friendly and food was delicious! My (non vegan) boyfriend got The Big Mohawk and I ordered the vegan pepperoni pizza. The big Mohawk was incredibly satisfying and the pizza was huge. I expected a personal pizza but it could’ve fed both of us with the appetizer... we got the popular buffalo cauliflower. The sauce was on point and we were both very impressed with the food. We’ll definitely be returning!

The fennel sausage pizza was delicious. The hostesses were a little unfriendly—I think one was a trainee so perhaps it was nerves, but there were multiple times she tried to seat someone directly next to my table in a rather empty restaurant. Both parties asked to move elsewhere as their table was against a pillar and only a few inches from mine, making it a tight squeeze. I think we all felt it was a little silly to have someone there at 6pm when the place wasn’t even half full yet. The awkwardness of seating was off-putting; I don’t know if it would deter me from returning but it’s something to note.
