What places have NEVER disappointed?

What places have never disappointed you? Minimum of say, 3 or 4 trips, but probably should be more like 5 to 10.

Even the most reputed and respected establishments have at one time or another come up a bit short. I've been going to SPAGO since it was at its former life in WeHo and have experienced more than one "below average" meal. Same goes for PATINA, which I've been going to since it occupied the new Providence spot.

I simply adore the pizza at ZELO, but even they have not been perfect each time (one time the crust was a bit soggy, oh well ...)

I've come to accept these little bumps in the road, as no one can really expect perfection day-in and day-out. Even the most beautiful person in the world has an off-day where they look, shall we say, less than stunning.

That being said, there are a handful of places that have NEVER disappointed me. In no particular order:

BABITA
SUSHI IKE
LA CACHETTE
CHINA ISLAMIC

And what about you?
