This is the place to be if you want to run in to stars. It's a quaint little restaurant which is always packed and offers a variety of foods. Don't miss it.

This was a client pick, and I must say: the food was quite good! On a Monday eve, I ordered the chicken special with prosciutto and fontina atop truffle polenta. For the table, we ordered the pigs in a blanket, the grilled artichoke- I'll never pass up artichoke when it's on the menu, and the burrata. All was tasty, well-prepared... More

Careful. Twice this week I ordered the same dish, chicken parm. Menu says $30 but they charged me $34. First time this week, I missed the overcharge till I got home. Tonight ordered the same dish. Charged $34 again. So, they offered us salad or pasta. Said it comes with it salad or pasta for no charge. Ok. I say... More

We had a great time here and were fortunate enough to be seated in Craig's favorite and private booth in the corner! We appreciate Craigs conversation and personal touch to this meal and we shared our 2 degrees of separation via hometown boy Ryan Seacrest (Who Craig mentioned visits quite a bit). This place was what I would call "home"... More

This was our second visit and we will not be returning. Food is ordinary and too salty. We ordered wedge salad, kale salad, orange chicken much too salty and spaghetti squash was good.

This was our second time here. Both times the food has been amazing. This time we had Trevor as our waiter, he was very nice, but once we paid our very expensive bill and tipped him very well he was gone, no thanks no good bye nothing. Plus some guy took our lamp that was on our table before we... More

This place has had it's day - full of tourists now - celebs go to 'Catch' along the street now. If you must go to Craig's go when Maitre D Tiommy isn't there. Much better atmosphere when he is off.

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
