Animal Restaurant Reviews

Add your review for Animal Restaurant.

  • EaterThere may be no more iconic french fry dish in Los Angeles than the oxtail poutine option at Animal.

    55555 by Eater

  • Melody H.Not the place for something light. Be prepared for rich, unctuous dishes. Don't skip dessert - pastry chef is on point.

    55555 by Melody H.

  • Daniel STry the bone marrow burger. No joke, it's fantastic.

    55555 by Daniel S

  • Chloe LThe loco moco is even better! So flavorful with foie gras

    55555 by Chloe L

  • Chloe LFoie gras biscuit! Such a bomb!

    55555 by Chloe L

  • Nate T.Bacon Chocolate Crunch Bar

    55555 by Nate T.

  • Sydney @Hamachi tostada

    55555 by Sydney @

  • Chloe LTruly gorgeous little gem. Have to order foie gras biscuit with gravy if you like foie gras. Dessert with ice cream is delicious too!

    55555 by Chloe L

  • EricEnjoyed our meal. Highlights: chicken liver toast, sweetbreads, hamachi tostda, Brussel sprouts

    55555 by Eric

  • Manuel TAmazing restaurant. Pork ear, Rib eye steak!

    55555 by Manuel T

  • Jackie NA little bit expensive but good

    55555 by Jackie N

  • EaterJon Shook and Vinny Dotolo made their mark in the late aughts with this over the top dish, packing stewed oxtail and cheddar cheese atop french fries in a minimalist space along Fairfax.

    33333 by Eater

  • Natalie GuerraThis place was everything I could ever dreamed of. The pork belly and the turkey leg were so 🔥

    55555 by Natalie Guerra

  • Adrian PhillipsThe sweet breads are not to be missed. If they have a burger special, give that a try as it was incredible. The best plate of the evening had to be the smoked turkey leg with white barbecue sauce.

    55555 by Adrian Phillips

  • Dylan F.HOLY SH*T IS THIS PLACE THE BEST RESTAURANT OF ALL TIME? Chicken liver toast and the bone-in ribeye with bone marrow butter. The steak is to die for, and the wine was out of this world.

    55555 by Dylan F.

  • CNTraveler“For all the talk about pig’s ears, Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo’s secret weapon is their amazing produce, which is so very Los Angeles.” - Peter Jon Lindberg

    55555 by CNTraveler

  • Connie ChiuUnbelievable. Highlights: liver toast, foie gras maple biscuit (get it), pig ear. The oxtail poutine and bone marrow burger were good but overhyped. Still, all around tasty.

    55555 by Connie Chiu

  • Bianca COne of the best meals I've ever had. I love exploring food so this was awesome. The flavors are interesting and surprising.

    55555 by Bianca C

  • Chefs FeedThe menu changes frequently here, but the poutine made with oxtail gravy and Cheddar is a mainstay. It's a punch in the face in the best way possible.

    55555 by Chefs Feed

  • Rayshawn JBest poutine and oxtail meat ever! I can eat this dish all day everyday if given the opportunity.

    55555 by Rayshawn J

  • Linda LMongolian sweetbreads, sirloin carpaccio, turkey leg, balsamic pork ribs, poutine

    55555 by Linda L

  • Casey F.Favorites I always order are: chicken liver toast, hamachi tostada, foie gras loco moco, and beef tendon chips. Recently tried the boner burger, it was pretty great.

    55555 by Casey F.

  • Rahil B.The foie grais, biscuit, and maple sausage gravy is literally the answer to life.

    33333 by Rahil B.

  • Kevin S.A super hyped restaurant that really lived up to it. Of the 13 dishes we tried standouts include: hamachi tostada, foie gras biscuit, and the sirloin carpaccio.

    55555 by Kevin S.

  • Harry L.Massive turkey leg!

    55555 by Harry L.

  • Paul SmithGo here!!!! Dinner was amazing!!! Such great flavors. Just be aware there is no sign out front.

    55555 by Paul Smith

  • Cameron M.I had the chicken liver toast, the crispy pig ear, the bone marrow, oxtail poutine and the foie gras biscuit. All was delicious.

    55555 by Cameron M.

  • Rem KoningVery loud but it doesn't matter because your mouth will be stuffed with liver, heart, ears and more tasty bits!

    55555 by Rem Koning

  • Gorka CGreat food and portions. Tried the ribs and the turkey leg, both were pretty awesome. The staff was helpful, in special Victor, who suggested us some places to go after

    55555 by Gorka C

  • Liz S.I wish I'd ordered 4 hamachi tostada. They are so good.

    55555 by Liz S.

  • Mona N.Hamachi tostada. That is all.

    55555 by Mona N.

  • Charles L.Get all the big meat dishes here. The ribs and beef carpaccio was very good.

    55555 by Charles L.

  • Sarah P.fantastic. It's a tiny place – and it's very meat-heavy, so expect a hearty meal. They opened a more seafood-centric place called Son of a Gun that's also quite good. (from a friend)

    55555 by Sarah P.

  • RolandThe ox tail pouting is a must!

    55555 by Roland

  • JaimeMeat lover delight! Soft shell crab is amazing and so is the poutin. The Brussels sprouts are also to die for!!

    55555 by Jaime

  • Benjamin GarciaThe Boner Burger is a serious piece of obscenity.

    33333 by Benjamin Garcia

  • Steph cPig ears, bone marrow, sweetbreads... You really can't go wrong

  • LA WeeklyOne of our 99 Essential Restaurants 2015!

    33333 by LA Weekly

  • LA WeeklyIf you were to trace our city’s current boom of exciting, highly regarded restaurants garnering national attention, almost all roads would lead back to Animal.

    55555 by LA Weekly

  • LA WeeklyThe menu is full of combinations that sound discordant (veal tongue w/salmon roe & black mustard?) but you basically can’t go wrong ordering, which is astounding given the range & breadth of the thing

    55555 by LA Weekly

  • LA WeeklyAnimal gives you yet another reason to dine on beef tendon, veal brains, sweetbreads and pig’s ears after 10pm. The meat-centric restaurant is open until midnight on Fri + Sat and 11pm during the week

    33333 by LA Weekly

  • George H.Everything is amazing, especially the poutine!

    55555 by George H.

  • Jen B.Dine with a group and get ready to go splitsies on chicken liver toast, hamachi tostada, burrata, b-sprouts, sweetbreads, spare ribs and both/any/all foie gras dishes especially the biscuit gravy.

    55555 by Jen B.

  • Jap-cTry the chicken liver toast!

    55555 by Jap-c

  • Meg FarmerTrendy, loud, and delicious. Bone marrow was a win.

    55555 by Meg Farmer

  • Eli S.This is a distinctive restaurant with a very unique meat-heavy menu. A great night out. Definitely one of the must-visit restaurants of LA. They also serve beer in comically small beer glasses.

    55555 by Eli S.

  • Katrina ZaiThe most amazing thing ever was the foie & biscuit. Also pork belly sliders are awesome too.

    55555 by Katrina Zai

  • Melon L.just order everything. Trust me.

    55555 by Melon L.

  • HéloïseDon't miss the Burrata and Hamachi.

    55555 by Héloïse

  • Men's Health MagVinny Dotolo and Jon Shook's noisy meat hall is a must for adventurous carnivores. If the poutine with oxtail gravy is on the menu when you visit, don't hesitate—just order it.

    55555 by Men's Health Mag

  • Lauren BertoliniPork ear was the best. Pork ribs and pork belly were meh. Skip the BLT.

    55555 by Jen M

  • Pocket SunDistinctive place. Casual setting, great variety of meat. Loved the chicken liver toast, the quail and the crispy duck leg! Definitely worth it. Innovative cooking method mixed with fun ingredients.

    55555 by Pocket Sun

  • Gina MHamachi taco. Just order it! You won't be sorry.

    55555 by Gina M

  • LA WeeklyThe first thing you should know about Animal is that it is practically a shrine to bacon, which appears everywhere on the short, seasonal menu, up to and including a chocolate dessert.

    55555 by LA Weekly

  • Men's Health MagGiven the time of year, the seasonal menu may contain any of the following: pig tails, pig ears, veal brains, rabbit legs, bone marrow, lamb neck, sweetbreads, quail, foie gras, and, yes, Spam.

    55555 by Men's Health Mag

  • Men's Health MagThe owners of this restaurant can get away with charging $35 for a Spam burger. And it’s worth it.

    33333 by Men's Health Mag

  • Los Angeles TimesAnimal is the kind of restaurant that other chefs dream about, a kitchen that renders its darkest, and happiest, thoughts in smoking, dripping flesh.

    55555 by Los Angeles Times

  • Tony CunThey played Bone Thugz "Crossroads" during dinner. This automatically won me over.

    55555 by Carolyn F.

  • Ryan CBe adventurous and Animal will reward you!

    55555 by Ryan C

  • John I.Absolutely OVERRATED. Nothing special and nothing to worth $100+ per person.

    55555 by Dru B.

  • Los AngelesThe hamachi tostada packs a wallop of flavor with slivers of jalapeño, crunchy peanuts, Thai basil and fried onion. For heartier appetites, there’s a Flintstones-size smoked turkey leg.

    55555 by Los Angeles

  • Tony X.If the Pig Tails are on the menu, get it. But always start off with the chicken liver mousse on toast. End the meal with the veal sweetbreads which they flash fry leaving the inside super creamy.

    55555 by Tony X.

  • Akiko I.Better than "Son of a Gun" (sister restaurant), but not as good as "ink". Very solid foods but I'm kinda bored to see the same items as other tapas places.. But chicken liver toast was great!

    55555 by Zachary S.

  • Los Angeles TimesJohn Shook and Vinny Dotolo have a pretty good sense of what tastes good, be it melted cheese with chorizo or calves' brains with the French curry vadouvan

    55555 by Los Angeles Times

  • Hadeel O.Veal tongue, chicken liver toast and bone marrow dishes were sublime!

    55555 by Hadeel O.

  • JakeI know everyone else suggested the "Pork Belly Pig" already, but I am verifying it. It is the best I could ever imagine. Bacon x 10. -- I'd fight a gang of twenty for these slider. I'd destroy them.
