Truly an outstanding Restaurant in the midst of the most renowned Museum in the World. New age daily changing food menu, prepared by an outstanding international Chef. Reservations required. A romantic, fresh, comfortable atmosphere to lunch or dine, providing an opportunity to visit any of the Museum's five exposition Exhibit buildings. Awesome most interesting Neoclassic Architecture. Service and customer attention... More

The menu makes me think of Napa Valley and the wonderful food and wine parings that can be found there.

The restaurant at the Getty Center is one of the best restaurants in LA as far as we are concerned. The service is outstanding, the ambiance is very open and airy and comfortable, and the food amazing. Add to this the fact that you have an amazing view of the coast, Bel Air and Brentwood and all the Getty Campus... More

I won a gift certificate to the Getty Center Restaurant through the Family Fun newsletter. My tween son, my husband, and I had an excellent dinner and dessert. Service was impeccable, the view was lovely, and the food was great!

This was perhaps our most expensive meal in L.A. You are paying for the view and the venue and not much else. The food, while looking attractive on the plate, was overcooked and dry. The waiter was absent and inattentive and when he came around, he was rather snooty. We had made our reservations specifically to sit at a window,... More

A good friend took me and another couple for a visit on a nice warm day. It was a fairly busy day because of Mothers Day and our friend surprised us with the extraordinary story of the history of the site, architectural details of the various buildings on site (and choices to satisfy the neighbouring communities), the stunning gardens and...

While visiting LA, we had Bruce at the Getty Center Restaurant. First of all the views are stunning and the restaurant itself is very open and airy. The service was very attentive but allowed us to enjoy this special place. I had the crab Benedict and my husband had the frittata. Both were excellent. I would definitely recommend this place
