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.

This was a very relaxing restaurant, not too big or too small with a lovely view. The menu was interesting with both favorites and so different dishes. This was true of the wine list as well. I thought that the prices were not high at all, considering the setting and quality of food and drink. The staff was knowledgeable about... More

The place has an overwhelming setting. The diner's majority seemed to be visitors to the museum. I ordered a "Bouilabaisse" and got benevolently a mediocre seafood-stew, which was disappointing, regarding the price charged therefore. If such an established term is used, this plate should be characterized at least as "Californian". A French "Bouilabaisse" is something total different. The chef may... More

Lunch at this fine restaurant lived up to all expectations - we were lucky enough to have a table near the windows so the views were extraordinary and it was a perfectly beautiful sunny day. A friend and I each had their Cobb Salad which is truly different and divine while another guest had the bouillabaisse which was full of... More

We anticipated uninspiring fare as one might expect at a museum restaurant but this one surprised us. The food, the service and the value were all beyond our expectation and left us thoroughly satisfied. We will definitely eat there again the next time we visit The Getty. I had a beet salad with fresh figs, berries, and phyllo and my... More
