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

I went to the restaurant simply because I didn't want to wait in line for the cafeteria. What I found was an experience. It was more than just a meal. The food on offer at first glance might not sound that complex, but when you look more closely you realise that each dish has a slight twist. The chicken, for... More

We were there on a gorgeous day and the smog had cleared enough to enjoy the views from the location. We each had Cobb salads there was really good but not traditional Cobb salads which was fine by us! They also had a nice selection of wines by the glass and good service. I'd eaten there once about 10 years... More

It was truly an experience. Everything we ordered was exactly as described on the menu. The Chef has new creations every day... Dining in the evening is the best.

This is a lovely place to have relaxing lunch while visiting the Getty Center. Food was well prepared and service was excellent. The glass walls allow for excellent views of the surrounding area. A glass of sparkling wine served with a floating fresh violet makes a simple lunch feel celebratory.

I wouldn't normally review a museum restaurant but I have to say that the Getty Restaurant, as well as the Cafe, are both very good dining options. The food is nicely prepared, the setting relaxing, and it is a nice way to extend a stay at the Getty Center with a scenic lunch, or light meal. The cafe offers a... More

Yeah, I know, it's just a computer generated email. As I think I said in my Getty Center review, the food here I thought, comparing museum prices on the whole, versus quality, I thought this place was pretty good. I have eaten here at least 3 times over the years and have always thought it a good value considering the... More
