Pre-COVID, the incredible space of Sorry Not Sorry LA was a go-to happy hour spot for my coworkers and me because it offers a wide range of cocktail and food menu to order from. It was always such a relief to be here after the day’s or the week’s bustles and de-stress.

Amidst the pandemic, it’s excellent news that this restaurant is open for dine-in. I was incredibly impressed by how Kim, the LA garden owner, transformed a simple parking lot into a safe atmosphere for her team and customers.

Perfect for LA weather and versatile, Sorry Not Sorry is a 4000 sq. Ft. open-air back patio where you can enjoy the night with your date, family, friends, or even by yourself.
A unique take on classics with some Asian fusion flair! My personal favorites are the buffalo cauliflower poppers, turmeric garlic fries, the most tender juicy chicken salad ever, and the shaking beef burger. Still, the rest of the menu is just as good and a bunch of must-tries!
Their strong and tasty cocktail menu has the most creative names and the cutest presentation! I also appreciated that they made me a mocktail as a nightcap for my lightweight self.
Check out their themed nights (i.e., Whiskey Wednesdays), which feature a wide selection to order from, at the best prices you’ll find on Westside Los Angeles.
