Large lounge with an old traditional feel. Located inside the Roosevelt Hotel. Short, yet great wine list by the glass.

I love the venue; it is so old-style classy. Our server, Alex, was quite excellent. We had lunch there, and the flat bread was so delicious! Make sure you have a cocktail. Their specialty cocktails are to die for!

In town to see a concert; staying at the Roosevelt and wanted some nourishment before we head out to the Hollywood Bowl. We had oysters, smoked ocean trout, and beet salad. The food was truly delicious, fresh, wonderful quality and flavors. The only disappointment was the wait. Thirty minutes for oysters and we were the first people in the restaurant... More

Every day for the last several years I am eating my lunches at Public's Kitchen. I am greeted by Melinda and sometimes by Ryan H. then I am served by Alex D. or Melissa (now works at the pool) or Angeli and Greg. All are like family they remember my likes and most importantly they treat my guests with warmth... More

Great experience dining and drinking, wait staff was attentive but not annoying and the barman made my husband's off-menu cocktail perfectly. Food was delicious!

Buried deep in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, just off the strip, this restaurant is a diamond in a rowdy neighborhood. After being entertained on the sidewalk outside, you will find yourself back in time as you walk through this Hollywood legend hotel lobby. I would describe the food as American and delicious. That might sound underwhelming and it probably is... More

Omelet was delicious - so good - ordered it on two separate occasions! Waiter was very friendly and the service was great. Also, good drinks -especially the Hollywood drink - printed on the board - from glamorous past times.

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

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.
