Went last night to try the new menu at WD-50. It did NOT disappoint. I've dined here a few times always for a special occasion ie: birthday, promotion and i'm always amazed by the gastro-wizardry that i'm honored to consume. WD and Chef Jon Bignelli are at the top of their games. Every plate that passed me looked as perfect as the one before. Make sure to try the "lobster roe" this dish can easily be the best thing i ever ate. Lobster roe is used to make pasta noodles, i would've wanted a huge bowl of that, what an exclusive mouth party. Drink the "el segundo" a beer and mezcal cocktail that was dangerously delicious. Dessert Smore were fantastic. I cannot stress enough what a plate licker this entire meal was. If i could afford to, it eat here weekly. My Girlfriend and i are obsessed, see you soon wylie and jon.

WD-50 is definitely worth checking out. The molecular gastronomy fad has waned but this place is still a standout. The Mediterranean Bass was probably the best piece of fish I've ever eaten. We got to tour the kitchen after our meal as well, very cool.

Unique. Entertaining. Quizzical. Convo Piece. Tasty at times (Eggs Benedict). Insists upon itself a bit. Pricey. Not a Michelin. Worth Trying Once.

Thought this was molecular gastronomy at its worst: gimmicky, over-complicated, precious. Was an inordinate amount of time put into the development and preparation of the food? I'm sure. But it did NOT translate into an amazing dining experience. Paid an exorbitant sum for my meal and still was served room temperature water. Service did not live up to the cost.

This is one of the most unique dining experiences of my entire life and doubt I will ever experience anything close since the Chef is an artist. The food is fascinating with its play on flavors and tastes. It is a very cerebral foodie experience. My husband and I felt it was the equivalent of riding food roller coaster. It was filled with excitement, the highs and lows came more from our own personal tastes and I would not expect everyone to appreciate this experience but if you love food it is a must! Do the tasters menu and go for broke!

Service and Food were very good. Staff is well informed of each course. Totally new twist to fried chicken! was great as an app. Steak was great, Halibut and Bass were ok. Aerated Foie a must try, avoid the Soft Meringue dessert. Will go back for sure.

We went here for dinner on a Friday night and tried the tasting menu. I had seen Wylie on Top Chef several times and was really curious about his style of preparing food. Our server was attentive but not pretentious or overbearing. The food was certainly "interesting" - for example, one of the items was a bagel (made out of ice cream) with smoked salmon and hardened cream cheese flakes. The concepts were great and the food "entertained" but I can't say it was always delicious. I think this place is worth a try if you don't mind the price tag- but now that I've experienced it, I'd probably not go again.
