Taix gets a five.  Great food, extremely competent service, good wine, easy atmosphere, and the price is sure right for all that.  For the budget conscious among us, it is the perfect date night location for quiet conversation, delicious food, and maybe even a star sighting (we saw Drew Barrymore one night).  Despite being somewhat anglicized, the country french menu is excellent, with a variety of selections including braised beef ribs, trout almondine, roasted chicken, and daily specials.  All meals come with salad or a bottomless bowl of soup served at the table.  It's all good and the waiters make the trip worthwhile.  One in particular is a classic; he's been working at Taix since before I was born!  He has no need for a pad and pencil; just tell him your order and he remembers it all, even for an entire table full of guests.  If you love L.A., you gotta get to Taix at least once.  On Sunset Blvd., near Alvarado.  Valet parking.  Stay late for a toddy in their perfectly retro bar to top off the evening....yep, time for another visit!

DJ, this place is the best. Do yourself a favor and check out some of the bands in the 321 Lounge after dinner. One of my local favorites, The Atomic Sherpas, play there about once a month. Very intimate venue.

I love good company, good food, and a good laugh. When I am not teaching, cooking, cleaning, correcting papers, or trucking four kids around to sports and productions (all of which I actually enjoy), … more
