I am tasked with finding a double-date location. Two are foodies, two.....are not (to say the least). So, reasonable price=very important for the non-foodies, and great food=very important for the foodies.
Want to try something new, so.....Westside, Hollywood, etc.
It's not really a foodie place per se, but I think Pace is a good place for a double date anyway. Pizzas and pastas are solid, and ambiance is cozy. It might be a stretch to call it great food, but I don't think you're going to get a nice atmosphere, truly great food and a reasonable price all together, so you might as well go for Pace.
I've been there on 2 double dates. The ambiance is warm and cozy - and the food is actually pretty good. I've had delicious pizzas,fish and veggies - and they have a good dip to start. I've always enjoyed it and so have the foodies and non foodies alike in the group.
I would say it IS a bit of a foodie place bc they use organic ingredients. I quite like the food there -- pizza is pretty good, but lasagne is v oily/greasy...
Ambience is sweet.
They have a salmon dish roasted on a piece of cedar with root veggies. It is very, very good. Highly recommended.
I just got my dinner reservations cancelled by Pace b/c I had a group of 6 between the hours of 8 and 9pm...........Say what???
I went to Opentable to make the reservations, no issue then I get a call telling me it was a glitch and if I wanted to cancel...My future in laws fly in from Cleveland and anything later would be like midnight for these folks.
Does that happen??
Last minute replacement help??
went to Pace a few months ago...it was okay. nothing special. i remember going a few years ago and really loved it.
try Pane e Vino on Beverly (near LaCienega) for double date. beautiful outdoor patio, nice romantic vibe - pretty trees, little white lights - good food.
