This is a highend food experience with a taste filled menu. The setting is also beautiful and service is reasonably attentive for tourists.

I ate here for lunch after touring the museum. Rather than eating at the cafe downstairs, I decided to eat at the restaurant instead, on the main floor. The ambiance and the view is amazing. The food is good, but not worth the money being charged. Considering that the museum has free entry and that the restaurant has a great... More

It's nice and bright, great clean food that is presented well, and the staff is very friendly. It's a great way to finish off a morning at the Getty.

Yes, the view is lovely. The food, however, is pretentious, poorly executed, and overpriced even considering the setting. Service was bumbling, amateurish, and glacial. Waste of time and money, if you're there to actually see the museum's exhibits.

While the Getty is an unbelievable experience, this restaurant was a great find! We both had well executed salads and sat outside on the patio area enjoying the spectacular view and delightful weather! Our waiter, Dylan, was very helpful! Helps to have reservations and I can see why.

A very nice selection of food, can get a little expensive but overall excellent. A good idea to book ahead of time if you decide to have dinner at The Getty. Amazing Views!

We had a really lovely lunch here while visiting the museum. Service was attentive without being cloying. Great variety on menu. Food was high quality and beautifully prepared. Pricey but then the museum is free!

This place had wonderful food with amazing presentation but... We had made reservations for both Lunch and a Tour, even received a confrimation number, and when we arrived they had nothing for us. We were well dressed, all female engineers, and the manager was very snooty towards us. I had showed him our confimation number and he said that didn't... More

Really enjoyed the meal we ate here. As others have said, the location and setting are superb and the day we were here it was super hot outside so it was nice to be able to escape the heat into the light, airy and spacious dining space and enjoy what turned out to be a fantastic lunch both in terms...
