Lavish leather banquettes, great food.

The atmosphere is beautiful. Great for a date, Really good food. Entertainment and a bar that has been in the movie "Swingers".

It is the best place in Los Angeles to wind back the clock to Frank Sinatra time. Elayne and Marty put on a fun show. It is a little kitchy, but a blast. The Dresden hasn't changed its decor in 40 years, and that just adds to the fun. It is a two drink minimum for a table. We haven't... More

This old school, rat pack era establishment is a must see in Los Angeles. It is well maintained and has not been touched since it opened (looks like 1960s). The interior design of this place is divine. It's from an era when they valued space. There is great bar and table seating around the piano in the bar area and... More

What a wonderful place, old Hollywood, we had a booth but we did arrive early, if you go later I would recommend booking, we did only have drinks, cocktails were gorgeous, we didn't eat so I can't comment on the food, but the staff were awesome, well worth staying for Marty and Elaine of course. Highly recommend a trip to... More

My boyfriend and I got here at 4pm when it just opened so there were just 2 punters having a drink at the bar. The food was lovely!! I had the Jumbo shrimp pasta which I couldn't fault and my boyfriend had a delicious meaty pasta dish. The decor is wonderful and really impressed us, the waiter (Gustavo) was very... More

If you want to feel like you are back in the 60s this is your kind of place. From the chandeliers to the black beam forest and white swooped banquettes, it's groovy man. The food was adequate, needs updating. On the other hand why change what's worked for 60+ years? Where they filmed swingers - definitely a set piece of... More

Ambiance took us back a few years, but it was still very classy. Service was good, but we felt as though we were asking alot to have a glass of wine and app/dessert around 10:30pm. They served us, a little reluctantly.

This is one of those places you have to go to. You have to sit there. and you have to experience Los Feliz same as it ever was. You know?

We really enjoyed the resturants decor and the staff was very friendly. Overall the food was OK but some plates were certainly better than others. An enjoyable experience but we are unlikely to return unless we see reviews about an improvement in food quality.

We went there due to a suggestion from another friend. But the place was unexpectably amazinggg! We loved the food. It s slightly more pricier than normal restaurants. Around 25-30$ if you eat with a group of 4. The decoration was unique, the atmosphere was pleasant and the food, you think expensive food have little in quantity... You re wrong.... More
