Spago, with its fine dining ambiance is lively and trendy, as well as regarded as one of the best restaurants in town. The interior decor is colorful and welcoming; the garden patio is especially nice with the evening lights. The dishes are overall good, but not memorable. Surprisingly, the wine list has an impressive collection of Burgundies. I would revisit.

DineLA 2011 destination #3. Spago. Great choices on the dineLA menu. I would usually have gone with Veal Sweetbread and the Lamb, but coincidentally that was exactly what I ordered at another dineLA 2 days ago, so I decided to go with a seafood theme this time.
Dungeness Crab Raviolini with Chervil and Basil Scented Shellfish Broth: It was surprisingly very delicious. At first I thought it sounded very fishy, but the shellfish sauce went really well with the crab ravioli.
Pan-Roasted Atlantic salmon with Port-Ginger Brown Butter, Puree of Jerusalem Artichokes, and Wild Field Mushrooms and Micro Mix Green: I probably should have gone with the slow braised lamb, but it wasn't too bad. Nothing special, but the sauce was pretty good. The salmon was a little too flaky... I wanted a bit more moisture so it didn't fall apart while I was eating it.
LEMON LEMON LEMON: My choice for desert was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I never went to a restaurant and enjoyed desert the most. I'm never a big fan of sweets. I know when they are "good" but I never really enjoy it as much as other people would enjoy sweets, but LEMON LEMON LEMON was a pleasant surprise.
Our server was nice... but she was a bit awkward. I don't know how to explain it, but she was very nice and attentive with no smile... kind of robotic in a way... which made the overall service just OK...
Ambiance: Reminded me of Olive Garden... I know. OUCH.
The food was good. LEMON LEMON LEMON was amazing... but I'm not so sure if this is a restaurant I will come back to.

I did dine LA at Spago and actually got to meet Wolfgang Puck. Apparently his office is upstairs and is at Spago often.
The location was in Beverly Hills so its all fancy. There is valet, so parking is forced haha. The set up is pretty much like a nice restaurant. Not many decorations.
The food at this place was excellent - Visually and taste-wise.
I ordered the lobster ravioli and it was really good. The sauce was just right - not salty at all. Usually, other places the ravioli is salty. This was good.
I ordered the Pan-Roasted Casco Bay Cod - with puree and ragout of gigante and cranberry beans, pancetta, wild mushrooms and mascarpone emulsion. It was good but TINY. I understand this is how expensive places make money... MAKE EVERYTHING SMALLER. It was really good and kept me wanting more. I engulfed the food within six bites... so I chewed for a long time to really enjoy my money's worth. :)
I got the dessert: Triple Chocolate Zebra Torte - with Cocoa Nib Cream
It was good but TOO MUCH CHOCOLATE. It was like chocolate on top of chocolate. If you are a chocolate lover, you're good with this.
There were people continuously giving us bread. Not just any bread... DIFFERENT KINDS OF BREAD! It was really good. They kept coming and I just took them :)
The waitress was nice and came by often. But the awesome part was WOLFGANG came out and he was nice enough to take photos with people :)
Overall, if you have a IMPORTANT anniversary... go here. If you just wanna go out for the night and you're hungry... no....
