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...

Food was fresh and well-prepared. We tried the fried oysters appetizer. It was excellent, with a paper Hun batter and juicy, flavourful oyster. The crab cakes were good as was the calamari. Most of us in the party ordered the bouillabaisse - it was chock full of mussels and clams, shrimps but short on fish. I guess all the fish... More

My husband had made an Open Table reservation for 1:30pm on Jan. 2nd. We ended up being hungry earlier, so they managed to work us in after about a 15 minute wait. This is the main upstairs restaurant; the cafe is a floor below. The view from the inside of the restaurant and the outside deck is awesome. We ordered... More

Have the information desk make a reservation. Nice menu, good food, reasonable prices and great service make this a good place for lunch.

Went to visit the Getty Museum with my italian family, went to this restaurant to have a nice relaxing lunch but was really dissatisfied and disappointed with the service and mostly the food! We had late lunch on a Sunday afternoon, our waitress was cordial but busy, the busboy was rude and cranky! But the food was unacceptable! My husband... More

No need to settle for less than great food while at the Getty Center. This restaurant stands on its own for very good quality dishes and service. Come hungry and be assured you will eat well. Their Bouillabaisse is delectable. We will be back =}

Had a really huge breakfast before visiting the Getty center and grabbing lunch here. My father-in-law had mentioned that the restaurant was really good but it slipped my mind. Sadly, I was unable to make space for more food when visiting this place, I would have loved trying more items on the menu. I landed up just having the soup... More

I booked the reservation on a wing and a prayer as I am Gluten Intolerant and this resetaurant was not listed as safe - I was giddy when the waiter let me know that they not only could manage my needs but they did it with style. The view is fabulous - the service supreme and this is safe for... More

Was surprised the food was sooo good with wonderful views of the entire city! The service was terrific & I would definitely take friends & family who were visiting to enjoy it as much as I did. As I recall it was not inexpensive but well worth the expenditure!
