Great service, good food- why not go?

I have to start out by saying that I had a Living Social deal, and made a 1:30 PM res on a Sunday. I was 25 minutes late due to poor planning on my part. I called at 1:40 and left a v/m to let them know we were on our way. When we got there, they were very gracious,... read more

Don't know if it had to do with the lakers loosing to the spurs but this atmosphere was alright. It was dim but no dj tonight and not a large crowd at all. Ordered the Mac and cheese and it was gross. The 'baked top' of cheese was the ok part but the dish was horrible. Waitress was ok but... More

Bottomless mimos's are delicious! The walk around every few minutes with a new flavor and fill your glass. YUM! I had the special a salmon hash with eggs and it was wonderful! The place is small so you might have to wait - so make a reservation. Had a great Sunday morning there and would love to go back for... More

I've been here several times over the years for various friends' celebrations, and I've always left completely annoyed. I like the concept of this place - wide variety of martinis, comfort food, great for parties, girls' night out...but the food is mediocre and the service is awful: inattentive, incompetent, sometimes even downright rude. The bartenders ignore you and the waitresses... More

The place is a hidden gem of Fairfax Ave just North of Melrose. You might miss it if you do not pay attention, and it would be a loss for you. It is perfect for a date or a night out with friends. I went of Martini Tasting, and I really liked it. They served a lot of different martinis... More

The first tme I walked into Lola's I knew this would be our "go to" spot. Comfortable seating, soft lighting, yummy menu...so refreshing! So tired of the trendy, overpriced "here today, gone tomorrow" restaurant scene of LA!

Our server was rude, didn't take the order properly so everything came out wrong. Their food was bland and just not good. This place is known mostly for its drinks and not the food.

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
