Description: Since 1984, Parkway Grill has specialized in a seasonal, market-driven approach to cooking that incorporates diverse influences and classic French technique. Demonstrating the ultimate commitment to fresh produce, the Parkway Grill planted its own organic vegetable and herb garden behind the restaurant. Tiki Salad, Brick-Oven Baked Cambozola Pear Flat Bread, and Whole Ginger Fried Catfish are long-time favorites. The design of the Parkway Grill is a study in casual sophistication, striking a perfect balance between elegance and rustic approachability. The brick walls are adorned with elegant paintings by Millard Sheets and mixologists prepare hand-crafted cocktails at the expansive bar, an original from 1920's Chicago. Parkway's award-winning wine cellar, comprised of upwards of three thousand bottles, includes a broad selection of wines served by the glass.

This restaurant has continued to improve over the years and is now excellent, even by L.A. standards. I didn't give it 5* for food because they still serve dishes that are only fair, like beet salad – unremarkable; choc bread pudding, and possibly still the Thai Pasta with chewy duck. However, what we aim for is excellent, in particular their... More

From the edible flowers that adorn many entres and are picked fresh from the garden outside to the single malts poured generously and the great food, Parkway never disappoints.

I made reservations for lunch the day before New Year's Eve. We were seated immediately. The dining room was beautiful with holiday decor and flowers. The appetizers were amazing. They were very busy, but the service was excellent as were our four meals.

This is a long standing high end restaurant, that consistently delivers excellent food and top notch service. The wine list is extensive with several great selections. The prices are a bit high, but there are a few good value wines on the list. Great for business or special occasions.

This is truly a fine dining experience. the black bean soup (always on the menu) was extremely flavorful. My three dining partners had the sea bass special which was exceptionally well done. I enjoyed the Thai pasta with duck breast. Wonderful service, great food, nice live music in the bar: who could ask for more?
