What a menu! I wasn't expecting such an amazing selection. I had a small salad and the octopus. . .it was delicious! And the views are spectacular.

We made a reservation for a window table over 6 months ago but when we arrived they hadn't got the reservation. We were able to receive a table not next to the widows but with a good view. We found the portions to be rather small & expensive.

We have dined at the Getty restaurant many times. Overall, the experience has been good. However, our visit taking a guest this week was not up to par. I had the prix fixe lunch, and enjoyed the onion tart and boeuf bourguignon. they were served with a plate of bread, and here was the first problem. while the breadsticks were... More

Not your ordinary restaurant cafe, here you'll find excellent meals (pricey yes, but worth it) in a beautiful dining room all glass walls with spectacular views of Los Angeles. After a morning enjoying the art at The Getty Center come here for lunch. I recommend their prix-fixe menu, it's a very good value; when I visited on late december they... More

I was expecting another overpriced average place, however after visiting twice already it has become a favorite. Service can be spotty depending on how busy it gets, but at least they try. Food is delicious and the choice of wine is good. Price is on the high side, but it is a nice place where you don't mind splurging. The... More

They've given great thought designing the layout in an attempt to speed up the process of obtaining desired food by having multiple lines dedicated to the menu item desired (soup and salad, tacos and burritos, etc). However, due to the vast number of patrons, obtaining and paying for your choice is chaotic and difficult. Again, due to the volume of... More

This is the "fancier" restaurant at the Getty. The views are amazing! They offer al a carte or a pre fixe menu for lunch. The food and service were amazing! Highly recommend the short ribs!

Excellent venue for a late lunch after a visit to The Getty Museum. Excellent menu with choices for all in our party. I particularly enjoyed the beef burgundy and my wife loved the potato leek soup. The staff was also excellent.

The Getty Center is open late on Saturdays and we had a great gourmet dinner following our visit to the museum's exhibit. The Beef Bourgeonion was wonderful.
