Salmon cooked to perfection!

Staying next door at Radisson. Needed something nearby and easy after a full day of apartment hunting... This meal was a treat with nice presentation, thick piece of salmon seasoned perfectly with sake and Asian style veggies plus black forbidden rice. Had ordered a side of fingerling truffle... read more

Food was fine, but service left a lot to be desired. We had a long wait to order, then a wrong order delivered and finally another long wait. Server offered to take this item off the bill, but it was back on! Functional ambiance, good for Uni meetings over a meal, I guess.

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!

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 board we were all... More

breakfast portions are huge..not too many to select from. Had dinner once..very average. the tomoto soup was more puree than soup. Had vegetarian that evening and tasted below average.

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
