We dropped in for a late dinner by chance, and quickly understood that it was a good move. As we were waiting for our dishes a line quickly formed on the street (it seems like it is a very popular pace!). They have quite a variety of choices, the food was good, and service was quick and friendly. We liked... More

We are Brits on vacation in LA. We wanted to order a delivery to our rental within the delivery area for the restaurant. After much time time spent choosing from their take out menu they claimed they couldn't deliver to us because we had no U.S. telephone number!

We apologize for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, telephone numbers are essential to complete our delivery orders. That is a very rare situation and we will find a solution to avoid this issue in the future. Again, we apologize and hope to serve you next time you are in town. More

Headed off Hollywood Blvd. In search of a late lunch. This restaurant seems innocuous from the outside (across the street from a strip club) but inside, all the tables were packed. I had a spicy charbroiled shrimp dish and he had a salmon sandwich. Both were very tasty. I only wish there were more cocktails to choose from. Also, the... More

Thank you for the kind words! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed our food and cocktail. However, as soon we received your comments we had the wrong impression that you were not satisfied because you rated us only one point out of five. So, if that was an honest mistake could you please update the rates? Thank you for... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
