Better than expected

We had dinner here since we were staying at the hotel. It's located at the Radisson, sort of. My husband had the short ribs. I had the Calypso chicken. A friend was with us and he also had the chicken. All of us were surprised and pleased with the presentation. It was lovely. And across the... read more

We ate at McKay's twice our last visit to L.A., once for dinner and once for breakfast. The portions were generous. The dish I remember most was the parmesan fries. They were incredibly tasty!

After the Homecoming game our family and friends went to Mckays and had a wonderful meal. The service was great and the food was surprisingly good. The bar area was also a great place to sit and relax with a cocktail. It is abit pricey, but worth it.

My first night in LA we decided to eat at McKay's since it was connected to our hotel. First we waited for about 10 minutes before they noticed we were waiting to be seated. The food was trying to be upscale. The presentation was good, but the food was only okay, though the prices were certainly marked for upscale dining.... More

Unfortunately this place has a great name, nothing more. Went to a USC Basketball game went to dinner before. Service was poor. The waitress was completely overwhelmed. Food came out cold and it was preprepared is all they had to do was reheat it........ Paying real prices for pre cooked food is wrong. We were kind of stuck because we... More

This is a nice restaurant, but that's where the compliments end. The atmosphere is terrible, because you'll likely be the only ones there. The menu is alright, but it clearly tries to hard to impress with things like a wedge Caesar salad & a 1 pound burger? What am I at a Sizzler or something? Anyway, the quality of the... More

... but evening salads were just average; or in the case of the Steak Salad, inedible dried out piece of old meat. The wait staff were all diligent, no problem with the service.
