It's a foodie paradise. The restaurant is an fine dining place set up on a hill with panoramic views from all angles. The service was impeccable. The foods were deliciously prepared and displayed. It was a little pricey. But it was worth the experience.

This is our port of call when we visit the Getty. The food is well-presented and flavorful. It's a little pricey but since it's a buffet style you can accommodate your budget. There are hot and cold entrees (cafeteria style service), and places where you can pick up sandwiches, cold drinks, coffee and desserts. It's lovely to be able to... More

Had lunch with my family at the outside gardens, excellent view and magnificent food. Trying to figure out the recipe for the Candied bacon brie cheese burger!

If you're planning on visiting the Getty, be sure to make a reservation for lunch. The room itself is gorgeous. The crab cake appetizer and scallop entrée are excellent. Next time we're in L.A., we'll be sure to make a reservation for dinner.

This place was amazing! I've passed this place a million times before but never gone in before, I'm so happy I finally came in. Ordered the grilled octopus, it was heavenly! My friends got the halibut, scallops and crabs. Literally everything was so good! The ambiance was cool, warm and very friendly. Do not miss this place!

The great service starts at the front door and continues thru out the meal. I've been here twice and each time the food, drink and service was outstanding. No matter what you order I'm sure you will be pleased. The cocktails here are no just your ordinary cocktails, special attention is given to their quality and eye appeal. Ask for... More

Happily been here before, but this time it seemed the food was even more adventurous/interesting. Both the grilled octopus and the King Crab leg appetizers were served with rich and exotic (to me) sauces. The Bouillabaisse was appropriately rich in garlic and saffron and who know what other spices. The highlight, to me, was the Mushroom Risotto. The rice was... More
