I love the location of this place, right in Franklin Village (a cute little town bridging Hollywood and Silverlake) and the atmosphere and seating both inside and outside the restaurant. This use to be one of my favorite places to grab

Recently moved to the block. La Poubelle has the best drink prices and best food that I've found in the hood. Really good Happy Hour that includes appetizers... and I just discovered that they have $6 martinis on Mondays now! I'm in.

This place is possibly the snottiest restaurant in all of Los Angeles. What's most ridiculous about their snobbery is that La Poubelle lacks the food to back it up. At best, their cuisine is mediocre and even then, the service you have to

Went in for dinner a couple of nights ago with the friends and had a great dinner. It was nice and warm inside when it was really cold outside. I would definitely recommend this for dinner or to meet at the bar for business or pleasure.

This place is an absolute joke. Lousy service and very average food for the price. Overcooked and over seasoned. Took forever to get drinks sent to the table and the waiter seemed bored, as he stood in a corner chatting with a bartender

I lived in Paris for four years and I'm just not that impressed. Plus it's kinda overpriced, especially given that the food at the other restaurants on the street is more appetizing.\r
The garlic fries were great.\r

I haven't been this disappointed in a long time. This was Hollywood trendiness at worst-- dripping in overly pretentious pseudo-sophistication. The name is French for the garbage can-- how appropriate! While the decor is really nice--

If you have yearned for a great Steak Frites in LA, look no further. The Steak has a great Peppercorn sauce and the mountain of delicious fries is just that. Sit outside and enjoy the evening Hollywood climate or step inside. For the more adventuresome, order the Escargot which is steeped in garlic and oil.

'The Trash.' Used to be enamored with this place, though it always seemed closed when we wanted to go. It got points for amazing food (seafood crepes and one of the best steaks in L.A.); however, the service was abysmal (we were being waited on by "actors") and not in the semi-acceptable 'French Service' kinda way. We haven't been back since ordering delivery, wherein the food was just terrible...trash indeed. Third star ONLY for the fair possibility this pl ace may one day redeem itself.

So the food's not bad, decent beer selection, a little bit overpriced, parking can be absolutely awful. But--if you're going to a show at UCB, you could do much worse. Oh, and the people can be a bit sceney.
