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...

The food is as delicious as the views and surrounding architecture and you get what you pay for from the bread plate, appetizers, to the dessert. The flavors of the Fig Salad were unreal, the Fried Oysters with Thai seasoning, Banana Mousse, Apero Cocktail was heavenly. The service was perfect.

There is a fine restaurant here, but I ate at the cafeteria style one which had plenty of choices at museum prices, which is expected. I had a pre-wrapped tuna salad sandwich but you can have one made fresh along with lots of other choices.

We always enjoy lunch here. There are quick lunches and more complete meals. They are a bit overpriced, but the venue is terrific. Take your food outside to enjoy the view and sunshine.

Absolutely gorgeous view, quite a formal feel but reasonable prices considering the lovely location. I had a Cobb salad - which was nice - but for me, the creamy dressing overwhelmed the other ingredients. Service was very good. I think that overall it was good value and I would go back.
