First of all, I called to make to make a reservation. The gentleman who answered advised me to just arrive... "we'll take care of you"
So we did....what a mistake!
They sat us in a patio room separate from the dark main dining room where the carpeting is so old, worn out and dirty that you wouldn't catch a roach crawling ! So called over rated "pepper steak" arrived cold. My guests fish was overcooked..crumbling. Very pricey and bland. Really good food is getting harder & harder to find in the U.S.
I would rate this place a big fat "F" to any regular bistro in Paris.
It's a shame that the majority of the people in this country have no clue to what fine dining is.

NBC has been around for a while in Monterey Park as a place for Chinese style seafood and dim sum. It used to be a dark and unfriendly place over 10 yrs ago and I was pleasantly surprised to see a remodeled and bright/open space with plenty of parking. Food is just as delicious - but this place is one of the pricier places in Monterey Park. The waiting system is also super efficient - they assign you a number that is shown on a tv screen when your table is ready

It's a take out joint w/booths in the dining area. Burgers are good, one order of fries will feed an army but they're very greasy and not that tasty. The hard part of this establishment is taking the staff who are rude, grumpy, and always act like they're better than you or like they'd rather be somewhere else. Can't stand to deal with people like that. So, I'll leave it...

A bakery like similar to this is yet to be created. I actually don't think is possible to even come close.
The guaba and cheese is my favorite, some of my co-workers love the potato balls, chorizo and eggs breakfast sandwich is delicious, plantine balls= rellenitos are also a must.

We went twice during our two-day stay. This is one of those unique dinertype food restaurants, unpretentious with surprisingly good food and choices for every member of the family. The soups are homemade. The coffee is personally brewed for the restaurant. The service is exceptionally well-informed. The pies are amazing, and again all privately baked with tender crust and fresh fillings.
I had a macademia crust chicken one day, extremely tasty with a moist meat. My green pea soup was the best I have ever had, thick and rich. Others had similar responses. The pies are not sickeningly sweet to disguise mediocrity. My lemon meringue was again like home made. This place is an institution for good reasons. And the prices make it a steal!

My notes remind me that Coco's was "Really Good Food, Quick & Good Price" It was a real Family Restaurant with lots of groups , really busy but the staff kept it all ticking over. There was a group waiting the whole time we were there which speaks highly for the result I think . The actual pies were great and a very wholesome experience and couldn't believe how cheap. A good food find in LA at a Good price !!

We ate at Ford’s on 4 occasions. All of the food was excellent. The waffles and pancakes were superb. I had the best tasting bacon and best tasting sausage that I’ve ever had at a restaurant. The bacon was probably the best I’ve had anywhere.
Service was consistently excellent.
Ford’s Filling Station has earned my vote for a Food Emmy

Do not be tempted to order an appetiser here as the meal starts with unlimited soup or salad plus garlic breadsticks (small rolls). I had chicken with garlic mash which was lovely, others ordered pasta dishes but those with cream sauces were a bit too heavy. The kid's menu is good value but my son's broccoli tasted a little musty like it had been stored in water in a plastic bag but otherwise everything else was tasty.

Family owned and operated since 1975 Benvenuti (Welcome)! The year was 1975 when proud owners of a little pizzeria & restaurant opened their doors to the public in the city of Montebello. Salvatore De Lorenzo and his wife Angela brought with them from Calabria, Italy, many family recipes passed from grandparents to parents with the taste and influence of good, honest Italian cooking made from the freshest ingredients along with a passion to cook. Growing up, there was always Nonna, Mamma, or Zia cooking in the kitchen filling the air with the aromas of fresh sauce and baked bread. The memories remain strong and alive today at Salvatore's Restaurant, one of the oldest family-owned Italian restaurants, where we continue the same family tradition in serving fresh quality Italian food to the next generation of customers. Come in and enjoy a sumptuous meal and southern Italian hospitality as you dine in the ambiance of that old world Italian charm while listening to live entertainment in the background. There is a saying in Italian, "chi mangia bene, vive bene." He who eats well, lives well. We believe this is the way dining should be experienced and we invite you to dine at Salvatore's. We look forward to seeing you again. Joseph and Anthony, brothers
We have been eating at Salvatore for many years, eating here at least once a month. There's only been a few times that the food was satisfactory (not great but okay) but service was excellent. Or, food was over the top, and service was slow....MoreCN M, we know you know we can do better! We look forward to seeing you soon! ;)

I'm not a pastrami fan but the hubby is so we tried The Hat from a recommendation from a cousin who loves pastrami sandwiches. We might have over expected our experience as we were disappointed to only like the sandwich. There's a lot of meat but it's not very juicy and you still need to dip it in the au jus. We ordered the Pastrami Dip and Roast Beef with dip but only 1 small container came with our order which did not seem sufficient to make our meats moist enough. Maybe they already dipped the meats in the au jus like other shops do but it still wasn't juicy enough if they did so. The servings were quite big and we did not finish our orders, especially the Chili Fries which is really a lot. Best to bring a buddy to share your order.
