Never again

Took half an hour to find parking, went to the cafe, and ended up getting shouted at by the cafe manager when his staff overcharged me (I never raised my voice). I left. That's all.

We had a few hours before flying out of LA in cabin class so decided to take one last look at the Getty Museum. One of the helpers told us their restaurant was the 'Museum restaurant of the year'. We can see why. Great service, good menu (not too overpowering helpings) and lovely views over the valley to the sea... More

We had lunch in this lovely restaurant after a visit to the Getty Museum. Portions were relatively modest but everything ordered was delicious. We started with the daily soup and a fig salad then having the yellowtail crudo and some wild salmon with a shared cobbler to finish. 2 glasses of Migration Chardonnay were enjoyed too and the bill came...

A really excellent meal with excellent service. A very extensive menu, but children were catered for too.

I considered a fair deal for what it offered and the prices, besides the views it offers. The food is simple, but pretty good. Try to seat as close to the windows as possible. It's worth it.

It's pricey, but if you are visiting LA and want to eat at a memorable location with even more memorable food, you can't go wrong here! The food we had at lunch was so good, pretty much every bite of every dish was an epiphany. Every dish is an original, with creative and attractive plating, and a great mix of... More

If time is not a factor then this is a great place to dine. We could not be seated for 30 minutes but that was ok as we went and looked at some more of the art as we waited. The staff were a bit pretentious but not enough to ruin the experience. The food was very good although a... More

We opted for the restaurant rather than the cafe thinking it might be easier to visit while dining. Definitely a nice quiet atmosphere. Wait staff was very efficient and manager on duty was supervising details. Guests with me told me the manager came and folded my napkin when I left the table for a bit! I don't remember the name...
