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

My HH and I had eaten here years ago and remembered that it was wonderful and it still is. Since we are at an Art Museum it only makes sense that the presentation of the food is artistically presented. Everything was beautiful and tasted outstanding. We had lunch starting with cocktails. Our dining neighbors ordered the Gettyini and I had... More

I had the halibut and my niece had a potato concoction of some sort for lunch. My halibut was served on top of a mess of root vegetables that were poorly prepared and mostly tasteless. The color of the vegetable melange was drab brownishness. The halibut was a nice piece of fish that deserved better. It wasn't grilled (no grill... More

Stunning location. Great food. Cod was slightly overcooked, but they were happy to replace it. Very good service. Highly recommended.

We had a late lunch after a day of sightseeing and touring of the museum. This was an unexpected surprise because the cafeteria style café downstairs was full so we decided to try the restaurant and do a sit-down lunch indoors. The restaurant has fine cuisine with breathtaking views. I had the halibut and it was amazing. Done with perfection.... More
