Great waitstaff

Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the small plate menu and wine by the glass so we could pair with our courses. Somehow my food was a little boring. My plates looked great but maybe it's cause I'm in the business, I thought the flavors needed a little kickstart. Some... read more

I dine occasionally at the Public Restaurant Hollywood Roosevelt with family, friends and sometimes clients. It was the 2nd time that Emanuel was our server, I was surprised & impressed that he remembered the first time he served me with my clients 5 months before. Emanuel was very friendly and attentive. During our dinner he checked on occasions if everything... More

Miguel, Vince, and Alexandria were the highlight of our stay in Hollywood. They were professional, attentive, witty and extremely FUN! My mom and I were on a #momdaughterroadtrip and it couldn't have ended better than a visit here with these lovely people! All of them were made amazing drinks and also paid special attention to my mom, which was delightful!... More

Great location. Very attentive staff. Nicely mixed drinks and ambiance, ambiance, ambiance. The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel is the full meal deal. We were there x 6 days and didn't have a bad minute.

I came with a very large group people but service was still very fast. The chef even came out to our table for a little visit. Love this place

After having lived in LA for 15 years, my husband and I returned for a one week visit of our old haunts. At the recommendation of a friend, we went for a romantic and eclectic dinner at Public Kitchen and Bar, and were truly amazed by the fresh combinations of flavors in the food, and the superb service of our...

I love the atmosphere in this restaurant. Old Hollywood couples with a modern ease to make this one fun dining experience. I like that I have a choice of seating. I usually choose a booth but there also regular tables and charming little alcoves that are garden rooms (moss on the walls, plants, tiny tables, lovely). Service is excellent. From... More

Food was great, the cooks even came out to talk to us about food and ask us how we liked it. Loved the fact they cared, the fried pork belly was AMAZING.

In the heart of Hollywood, there are no shortages of great bars to wet your whistle but the best? The bar at Public. Yes, the cocktails are stellar, the happy hour is a steal and the food is great but what REALLY makes this place? The bartenders. Every single one of them is a gem but I really have to... 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.
