Old school place, with excellent service. The music in the lounge is awesome. The perfect place to have a martini and an order of escargot. A good place to have a nice dinner or an evening cocktail. It's got it all!

The food was almost inedible. I ate about 10% of my meal. It was very obvious that there was something wrong with it. But the waiter never questioned it and just removed it. The other meals were moderately better. But not by much. No idea how this place has been around for do long. Their cuisine is definitely stuck in... More

This is a place which could easily be used in any Soprano-like movie/series. White leather seats in half-circled booths with round tables. It came highly recommended on Tripadvisor, so we were confident that we would be ok! And we were not dissapointed. I had the rack of lambs, which came with new potatoe and some broccoli. My friend had the... More

Our group of nine friends from the L.A. area and Central Coast met here for a night on the town, and we all had a fantastic time! The decor is retro-cool, the staff are friendly and professional, and the drinks and food are plentiful. We started in the lounge, where we each had one or two drinks. The wine and... More

We were recommended this place by the reception of our hotel just a couple of blocks away. We went quite late but the restaurant was still opened with some customers eating. Everything was very good from the food to the service and the ambience. Price is reasonable given the quality of what you're eating. Reccomended.

Been here number of times over the years and always make a point of getting along when i'm in LA. Marty and Elaine provide the music and are truly an experience. The place attracts avery mixed crowd and this adds to the atmosphere. The interior looks like it hasn't changed since it opened in the 1950's and this isn't a... More

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
