We heard about this restaurant while on a tour of celebrities' houses, and we were told that it was popular with some celebrities! We ended up eating here after we went out for dinner one evening to find Beverley Hills completely empty and quiet-which was a bit of a disappointment. We explored a bit trying to find somewhere that was... More

Dan Tana's is a real institution. It's straight out of central casting, with the maitre'd in a tux. Reservations are necessary but even when you are on time they make you wait. The food is heavy with red sauce. Go for the show

Ok I live in New Zealand and travel to the US for my work - for the past 18 years I have been going here- great service and fantastic food - I eat at the bar as most the time I'm on my own - they have the best drinks and it's kind of old school . Enjoy!

Dan Tana's has old school 1950's italian style and charm. The staff is great, they have been around for decades, always a good time. The place get's packed early, I would recommend making reservations. The bar is busy, but the service is quick, the bartender makes a great martini. The caesar salad made from sratch table side is great, NY... More

This was the third time I have eaten here. Old School Italian. Great food, lots of fun, Celebrities frequent this restaurant. this is not a quiet restaurant so don't come for a quiet low key meal. My wife and I do love it though. We split the spaghetti with clams and it was great

The waiter was a little "touchy feely" to me but not to the point that it was awkward. It is really as... More
