We went here on a recommendation from a friend and were highly thrilled we did! Incredible food, spectacular service and beautiful views. Old time Hollywood Hotel Bar with an eye on a quality dining experience. Overlooking the Pool and L.A. this bright, clean classy atmosphere was everything you could hope for. Like a 4 Seasons Dining experience with fun Show... More

The breakfast on the terrace is perfect,a beautiful setting and great food and service. There is a more formal dining area we thought we would try for dinner and made a booking making that request. We arrived down and were ushered into the more casual area where we have breakfast? We asked why we weren't in the more formal area?... More

Once you manage to secure a reservation, you will then need to make sure Dimitri finds you a good table with a view of the bar and action. I eat here frequently and generally see high powered industry executives and celebrities. Not your B or C list players but serious A list film, TV and music folks. Food is very... More

The room is quite spectacular, particularly at night. Service is professional and experienced. My problem is that the food is just average quality and clearly doesn't match the settings and service. But the price certainly does...

Food is excellent- serving staff are attentive without being intrusive. Great view of downtown LA from some tables - adjacent to the pool. Part of historic Hollywood.

Four friends - 3 from Australia and one from Manila - enjoyed a wonderful meal here. The service was impeccable from the moment we stepped in the door - courteous, attentive and friendly without being intrusive (special thanks to Ray Thomasz our waiter). The decor is more European or perhaps 'old world LA'? - warm and inviting. It got a... More

It feels like you are in a different world when in here. An interesting crowd and interesting decor. Not my kind of place, however, others seem to like it.

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.
