The name Tartine Bianco stems from the collaboration between Chad Robertson, Liz Prueitt of Tartine, and Chris Bianco of Pizzeria Bianco. This relationship and the ideals it carries are vital in the philosophy behind the menu. The menu takes into consideration the many cultures that represent Los Angeles. With a large emphasis on locality and seasonality, Tartine Bianco will provide its guests the highest quality ingredients, prepared with the best intentions and respect for those ingredients. They’ve carefully cultivated relationships with purveyors and farmers like Cairnspring Mills, which sources from local grain farmers, Cream Co. Meats which provides meat grown sustainably and with superior flavor in mind, and Bianco DiNapoli’s California vine ripened and organically grown, canned tomatoes. The menu is designed to be shared and should begin with what Tartine is best known for… bread. The wine list will change regularly and, like the food, will reflect the mood of the season.

Food was fantastic but service was horrible. My friend and I got our wine right away but our husbands waited 20 minutes for cocktails. They had water to drink through appetizers. Service was very slow. 3 hours plus dinner and we had teens with us that had school the next day on a Sunday night which is why I made the resv early. Glad we did.

OUTRAGEOUS, they charge you $7 for three half slices of bread! The appetizers, hummus and ricotta cheese, do Not come with any bread or anything to spread it on! And the wine pour is not even close to 6oz!... at $14. The other entrees, tasted good, but not worth the drive to get to the location. Nothing outstanding, and too bread centric for the price.

The only thing worth going back for are the breads and pastries at the shop. I live in San Francisco and go to the original Tartine. The food there is tastier & reasonably priced.

Previous visits for lunch and dinner have been excellent.
Problem with service for brunch--coffee came a long time after meal was served, even after several waitstaff were reminded. I suspect we were forgotten somewhere.

Great food and service. Cocktails were especially good. Had a 3:45 pm reservation so the place was almost empty, not the most fun ambiance but meant we had attentive service. A bit pricey but tasty food and good for a special occasion.

Overall, a nice, pet friendly (patio) restaurant. The hostess (Sunday. Brunch) was very snobby and looked like she could care less, made us feel unwelcome. It left us with a negative first impression. Food-wise, we enjoyed the morning bun (5/5) coffee (3/5), little gem salad (3/5), egg sandwich (3/5), smoked salmon (4/5), and patty melt (4/5). Prices are a bit steep for what you get but the ambiance is relaxing and comfortable. Service is attentive and friendly. We will definitely return due to the pet friendly atmosphere and ample free (2 hrs validated) parking.

The eclectic ambiance combined with the casual servers create an experience that resembles visiting a "pressed off center" friend for a family style meal in an abandoned southern mansion. The food is sweet and savory. Every dish offered an unexpected burst of flavors that left you wondering, "how did they make this?" Living without ordering and consuming the cornbread is NOT advisable. One of LA's true gems.

Menu was different from the one listed on this website. We went for the bone marrow and NY Strip steak to only be disappointed when our waitress said that the menu has been updated and no longer has these items.

My friends and I had a great time together at the restaurant. The food was amazing. The service was excellent. The restaurant is beautiful. Even their bathroom is well put together. Definitely a must go to restaurant especially on Sunday with Smorgasberg around the corner.

This place lived up to its reputation. We ate outdoors on Tuesday night around 6 and there were only a few customers dining at that time. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive. The flatbreads, breads and roasted chicken were divine. I look forward to our next dining adventure in the near future.

The people are very nice, but the wait times to get the order in is too long, and then the timing of the food service is frustrating. Plus they sort of pass you back and forth between several servers. Excellent food and beautiful location. They just need to get it together a bit. Hopefully will get there. It'a great place.

The food is delicious; bread light and tasty, spreads unique and tasty, flatbreads to die for, and the entrees were equally delicious. This place is a gem and a must visit in LA.

Tartine Bianco is a MAJOR addition to the LA food scene - a must-visit venue for serious foodies. The fresh baked bread service is killer - the best bread in LA - along with the warm ricotta, which is heavenly. The chicken liver pate terrine on brioche (huge portion) is spectacular. The rotisserie chicken was amazing - they brine it in herbs for 12 hours, then cook it to near-perfection - crispy on the outside, absolutely delicious. The accompaniment (summer squash, cherry tomatoes, cilantro in buttermilk sauce) was not a winner for me - it made sense conceptually, but ultimately didn't work in terms of flavor profile. Finished off with the chocolate malt ice cream w/caramel, caramelized bananas - oh my god, this was beyond amazing - best ice cream I've tasted in ages. The service was terrific - my server Laura was wonderful, charming, attentive - she even brought me a surprise treat at the end which capped off the evening perfectly. This restaurant deserves a VERY long run - hope it stays around forever!

I think this is a solid place for lunch if you happen to be strolling around the ROW area on a Saturday afternoon. We sat outside, so the noise level was on the quiet side. The menu was interesting - the two of us shared a really good Little Gem salad. Lovely dressing.
We split a Grilled Cheese sandwich, which was not exactly my fav - but I knew that it was not meant to be a normal Grilled Cheese - as it had squash in it. And too much butter on the bread for my taste. (can't believe I'm saying that).
And we tried the Avocado Smorrebord - It's like a small piece of fabulous bread, thinly sliced, & toasted The avocado on top was creamy, with a bit of heat, and pumpkin seeds. Enuf for a couple of bites each. Good stuff.

My husband and I went on a date for dineLA. As soon as we sat down we decided we were going to not do the prefix menu. Ben was an amazing server. He was not only knowledgeable about the menu but also helped us narrow down dishes we would enjoy without over doing it. The food was beyond tasty. I’m so in love with this restaurant.

There is a small indoor bar area, but the dining is outside on a cozy patio. The food was tasty and nicely presented. We all had something different, 3 main salads, fish and chips and hamburger. Everyone was pleased with their selection. The patio is also dog friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We were there for dinner. Highly recommend the spring onion flatbread which had a nice hit of spice to it and the heirloom tomato ricotta tartine. The wines by the glass were good and love that you can get half pours so I could try a couple without getting toasted before the theater performance. My husband liked the craft beer available.

If nothing on the dessert menu grabs you, you can order from the pastry shop. We had the coconut cream pie. It was good and ample to share. Banana cream pie next time!

We also liked the prawns and something else but can’t remember what anymore. We didn’t love the eggplant dip with the bread. The breads were delicious of course but also different (you get 3 types). Will definitely be coming back!

The food was very good, especially the country bread and kefir butter. I recommend the fried chicken sandwich- it’s lighter than you would think and the elements combined well. The service is slow and not attentive but we were not in a hurry so I didn’t really care. Try the morning bun from the bakery it’s very good.
