Food is good but ambiance and music is even better

We ate at this restaurant a few times during our LA vacation. The food was dependably good and reasonably priced and the service was excellent. It was a great option for our family of 4 with two near-teenagers. The highlight of the week was Thursday night when Lindsay Harper was providing live... read more

This restaurant is beautifully located at the portofino yacht club with a marine view. It's has a very relaxing atmosphere and designed well.

If I go back I would definitely request... More

Nice hotel restaurant, found the staff to be very polite and courteous. Ate there 3 times, service was slow however. You have to budget 1 hour for breakfast minimum.

Had the short ribs for dinner; it was delicious. After dinner, went into the bar to listen to the band. The crowd as a little funky; some tourists and some drunk locals. I would go back for the food but probably skip the bar next time.

Breakfast option of buffet or a la card order. Also lunch was great. Plates are rather large and plenty. I noticed that on the weekend alot of local people had breakfast/brunch at the Balleen, so I take this as a very good sign. Staff is friendly and try to solve all requests.

Too pricey to actually eat there but their bar area has specials during the week which are quite nice. The best is tacos on Tuesday for $2 and $5 Margaritas on the rocks with some optional poo poos which are very good.
