Fun, loud and friendly

Without doubt, the food and drink are not at the highest level. No problem, we had a great time. The Maitre D was exceedingly pleasant even though our party of five was new to this legendary hangout. We bellyed up to the crowded bar where the bartender of 47 years graciously served us. Drinks... read more

As the review is titled, this cuisine will never go out of (my) favor. I've been here several times over the years, and have never been disappointed. Great classic southern italian food, well prepared and properly served. The ambiance is just right.

If only negative stars were available for Dan Tana's. I have been to Dan Tana's twice, the first time was over 7 years ago and I had an amazing experience. The second time was on a recent Sunday night with my family. Our waiter was Arturo, a charming person at first. However, once we had simple questions about the menu... More

I always go to Da Tanas when I visit West Hollywood. Great food with old time charm. Very frequently you will see movie stars. It's very popular so sometimes it's necessary to wait at the bar for your table. So plan a little extra time and enjoy nostalgic LA at its best.

I didn't even get to taste the food. The waiter went out of his way to make a disrespectful comment to me saying, “I don’t see how you’re sitting here with these white people.” My coworkers an I very offended by his comment so we left.

We came here with the family after reading great reviews. Was not totally impressed . It's a small old style atmosphere... One waiter was great very friendly... All others as well as the busers were not friendly nor attentive. The food was good .. Very big portions... Overall I would say it was overpriced .

We stayed just up Santa Monica Blvd and someone mentioned this place to visit. After seeing reviews I was tentative that this may be a place that favoured "regulars". We arrived half an hour early and were shown to the bar. The Maitre D' came part 10 minutes later and asked where we were from and when we said Australia... More

Booked this restaurant on a recommendation. Worried about it on arrival as it's an old doorway. Restaurant very old but welcoming. Like other reviewers the food is so tasty but extremely heavy, so don't order a lot. However we never got to order, the waiter ordered for us. Good choices! Lucky man....

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood 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.
