THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Falcon Restaurant Review

: This hip restaurant is located in a converted Craftsman-style bungalow. A liberal use of lacquered wood, shag carpets and clean-lined booths give the place a Rat Pack-era look, although the name actually refers to Rudolph Valentino's home, the Falcon Lair. In addition, a patio is anchored by a freestanding fireplace. Chef Guillermo Perez's comfort cuisine features items such as fried calamari and plantain chips with chipotle aïoli, mac ‘n’ cheese, thick-cut rib-eye with horseradish crème, and a solid burger with cheddar. There are also a handful of wood-fired pizzas topped with fennel sausage or roasted sweet peppers. A few wines are available, though cocktails are the way to go. The hip, sexy scene satisfies guests’ desire to be a part of the L.A. nightlife milieu, all the while indulging in some leisurely dining within an old-world dining room.

I was embarrassed in front of my guests

This place used to be one of my favorite places and therefore I have chosen it a few years ago as THE place to host my annual clients appreciation party. Tonight at Falcon's was a disaster. Their oven didn't work, so all the food came with an hour delay from who knows where. After we ran out of the delivered food there was no way to put anything else on the table. My guests were asking me where is the food and I couldn't find the words to properly apologize for this horrible service. I had over 70 guests and all of us needed to walk to the upstairs bar for every drink although there is a bar downstairs, which this restaurant couldn't (or didn't want to) open as they weren't able to find another bartender. At the upper bar there was most of the time only one bartender who tried to do his best, but unfortunately that wasn't enough. I have waited with each guest of mine an extensive period of time to get them a drink instead of spending that time entertaining my guests. All prior years we had valet parking, but this year nobody decided to bother with that, which caused quite a bit of our guests to walk to the party annoyed after driving around the neighborhood looking for a parking.
