How would you rate XEN Lounge?
Horrible service. Inattentive waitresses . long wait.
They do not honor their groupon. They say you have to make a reservation yet they do not answer the phones.
They Ask for $15 entrance fees yet charge others only $5.
Worst margarita ever. Food is OK. nothing to boast about.
Just went and I LOVE IT! Intimate and soulful. Great clean place
food and drinks where top shelf. this lounge has very strong potential.
the one thing i see that would enhance this establishment would be to enlarge
the indoor lounge area by using the patio space and the space up front by the street.
Kick back spot, Grown folk chillin, Super friendly Casey & Michelle Launch Thursdays
Vibe was awesome. Food was off the hook. Was visiting my cousin for the weekend. Had the mac and cheese with lobster. AWESOME!!! A very nice spot to have an adult good time.
Just WOW! Live music was amazing! The food looked great but I didn't have a chance to order. The drinks and service ON POINT!
I walked in to a beautiful atmosphere. It was the WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!! The ONLY THING THAT CAME QUICK WAS THE DRINKS. WE WAITED OVER 2 HOURS FOR THE FOOD TO BE PROVIDED A SORRY @** EXCUSE ABOUT THE CCOK BEING NEW! NO EXCUSE AT ALL WHEN RUNNING A BUSINESS. CLEAR AS DAY WE SAW OTHER'S RECEIVE THEIR FOOD BEFORE US AND WE CLEARLY ORDERED WHEN NO ONE WAS HERE. A REAL JOKE. THE ONLY THING THAT WAS GREAT WAS SOME OF THE MUSIC PLAYED. PLEASE DON'T COME HERE HUNGRY! DISAPPOINTMENT FOR PEOPLE WHO TRAVELED FROM OUT OF TOWN CELEBRATING A BIRTHDAY. 🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕✌✌✌✌
Went here for a Birthday Party... Loved the atmosphere... But the thing I loved best was the Lobster Mac and Cheese!!! Oh My goodness, let me tell you something... It was the best Mac and Cheese I have ever tasted in my life and I make great Mac and Chesse!!! I don't even like lobster but this lobster was tender and juciy. When you go to Xen Lounge. The lobster Mac and Cheese is a must!!!
The band is great, but the food and service is very poor. Eat somewhere else first and then head to Xen for drinks and music. I ordered the turkey lasagna and the garlic bread came out 45 minutes after the lasagna. When it finally arrived to the table, it was cold and hard and just looked like large croutons. Very disappointed with the food. But like I said, the music was great.
Live music is nice, but food is terrible. I ordered wings and my wife ordered shrimp fettuccine. 35 mins later wings came out burnt to a crisp and her meal came with 4 shrimp. Waiter avoided us knowing that our food was disgusting. (18% is automatically added) We decided not to make a big deal out of the situation. Just decided to forewarn others
Intimate setting with amazing live music and entertainment, I will always come here on a Friday night.
Had a great time here. Vibe was nice, drinks and food were great. The host was funny (picked on me a little bit) and the band was great. I definitely will return when I visit LA again.
Yes! The atmosphere is so laid back exactly what I need. I've found a new release!
Me and my girlfriends went here when we were in LA for the BET Awards this year. It was okay. I did read the reviews before I made our reservations but you can't trust everyone's opinions. The food was not as good as i expected it to be. The drinks were like cool-aid. Tisha's performance was really nice. The place is a little small and very cold. We were freezing in there. The patio was closed for a private party. Glad I did visit it tho.
I'm in el love with XEN Lounge.
If you want a place to go, let go, and just have fun, then XEN Lounge is the place. It doesn't get busy until around 12:30 or 1:00, so it's a great place for the beginning of the end of your night. Wear whatever you want, dance however you want, be whomever you want XEN Lounge isn't the place for judgment, as everyone is usually too drunk to care -It's kind of like reliving all four (or maybe 5 and a half) years of college in a few hours.
A great place to escape from the Crescent Street/Midtown club scene.
Owned and operated by the Tisha Campbell (the TV wife of Martin Lawrence), this trendy spot in studio city is a wonderful place to have a meal (reservations well in advance is a must) or a drink while rubbing shoulders with many of Hollywood's big stars. The live music is a big hit...and Tisha herself often performs on a Friday night. Best of all, they open their stage to up and coming R&B and Jazz artists with an audience that may include many of music's biggest record producers.
Had a blast @ Xen Lounge. Tisha and her band are so much fun!
The outdoor area was beautiful. I really enjoyed the jazzy soulful r&b live music they played in the beginning of the time I was there. The big chairs are comfy and it's a really nice place to hang out. Dressy casual attire
Intimate location. Excellent food. Top
Shelf drinks. However, parking is not great, which is why I only gave four stars.
Fun place with great food and very good music, especially on Sundays when they have Raggae!
Worst service EVER!!! I've tried on numerous occasions to give Xen Lounge a chance due to the fact the people and atmosphere are so great! But besides the amazing Jurni and Daffney I can't deal with the service/wait staff. Both of these ladies are always on it! Kudos to you ladies because any other time I can't get a drink or food in a timely manner. I was completely ripped of by a waiter by the name of Brian who instead of apologizing for his mistake proceeds to argue with me . He double charged me for wine but being that it took almost an hour to resolve this my boyfriend was like okay once you fix it let me just close my tab . He comes back with a ticket for my boyfriend to sign that still has the wine I didn't receive nor drink on there . The manager Ky was extremely rude and confrontational asking why wasn't this issue and other my party had handled in the beginning. Honestly we were attempting to make the best of it and enjoy the show despite the hour wait for wings and calamari. The time before this I had to disable my debit card in order for her to come back . Do better Xen . It's already too much to pay $10 to stand in a sardine can of a venue but to be required to pay $25 min to sit at a table with poor service and tip is a little over the top don't you think? You can't put a price on great service but you've already stamped $35 for horrible service . Very disappointed. And the only 5 star comments are from EMPLOYEES!!! And friends of a few of the staff members.
I would give them more but they don't suggest where u can park without risking your car getting towed.
I love the spot , it reminds me of the cellar in NYC back in the 80"s
They host speed dating on Wednesdays as a monthly event and instead of having eligible bachelors participating, they filled in the poor male attendance with the male staff from the club who had no relationship goals. Pretty much a d*ck move by the organizers. The club itself is cool. Outdoor area and a cozy club inside for a true "kickback party" vibe with over stuffed chairs. No room to really dance inside. Staff was polite and if you like supporting Black owned businesses, it's worth the trip. (Pass on their speed dating events. lol)
Worse service ever, chicken smell old and aweful but entertainment was Awesome..just dont go hungry!!!
Live private show from Tisha Campbell, bet you can't beat that. #thatbitchcansingthough
I visited Zen Lounge on Friday January 19th. The food was great. The entertainment was good. The reservation process needs some attention. I made my reservation, gave my credit card and they didn't have it when we arrived. I was disappointed I didn't get a chance to hear Tisha sing. We came from phoenix and were so excited to just get in. It would be nice to let your out of town guest know if Tisha will not be in attendance. Most are there to see her. Seeing her was the highlight of our trip for our 2 year wedding anniversary. If we had known she wouldn't be they we would not have waited until she is there. I will ask next time we drive all that way to see her. Thank you. Beverly Hill.
Live music is always a plus, especially in a great friendly environment. Drinks were phenomenal. It was definitely a good time!
Drinks were good, atmosphere was nice, however, the food could be better.
The live music was sublime, the spring rolls were delicious, the staff was wonderful, and the atmosphere was everything you could wish for. There's no other place you should be on a Friday night.
Great ambiance. Good food but pricey. Dancing donations but dance floor is very small. There outdoor Area has heaters and flat screen tvs so you can see the stage when performers come. Every Friday Tisha Campbell performs liver with her band. Celebrities always stop through. One Friday got treated to an impromptu performance by Biz Markie.
I bought my tickets for comedy night and it was an amazing experience. The food was 🔥 great.
We were nervous about going bc this place has some bad reviews but Such a fun place! Drinks were good, bartender was amazing!!! She was super friendly we had no Idea what we wanted she was patience with us gave us some recommendations she was smiling swinging her ponytail love it! We ordered the catfish it was full of flavor they definitely wasn't shy on the seasonings. We sat on the couch near the stage it was comfy just great vibes we will be coming back.
I enjoy myself every Friday when I go. The food is good, the live music is great. Great band!!
A great place for the grown and sexy to unwind and network. Lots of Celebratory events and parties. Delicious cousine, tasteful drinks and great entertainment.
I was here on a Wednesday night for comedy night. The atmosphere is cozy, the food was delicious and the drinks were yummy and strong. I ordered the spring rolls and the Georgia Peach cocktail.
Nice small restaurant. Cocktail selection is limited and pricey. Outdoor patio is great for private and special events.
I'm From Detroit, Michigan and I really dont get out much BUT my XEN experience was Definitely Satisfying and Relaxing. I attended while 7 months pregnant in August 2015 while CARRYING my first child I wanted him to hear some GOOD live Music. SO my Aunt told me about this VIP LOUNGE. My visit was surprisingly interesting because It Tish & Duane's ANNIVERSARY AND I WAS sitting next to
Joe & Chrystal Torry.
I heard GOOD MUSIC ate GOOD FOOD around GOOD COMPANY..
I have gone to the lounge on Sundays and on Wednesdays. SMOKING spot! The atmosphere...food and drink are on point. If you like live Music...the performers are world class...most are entertainers who have performed with major acts. You WILL be entertained. I will keep coming...it IS the next BIG thing!!!!
I went last night (Saturday) around 11. Much to my surprise, it was not crowded. Low key casual and intimate vibe mostly catered to an older 35-40 and up...read this and 308 more
