I have been going to this Suzanne Goin restaurant for many years. It has never disappointed me, the service, food and ambiance are excellent. Last night we sat in the wonderful patio on a balmy, brilliant L.A. evening. There was a nice buzz in the entire restaurant, the entire staff is excellent, attentive and efficiently helpful. I had the most... More

everything you could ever wish for in a restaurant for what I consider a very fair price. We went on Sunday where you choose between two entrées and the other two courses are a given. everything was just very good. perfectly seasonal and perfectly prepared. I really liked the vibe and our server was wonderful.

Love the food. Always top quality and great presentation, but be prepared to pay the price. A perfect place to celebrate a big occasion.

My husband and I had supper at Lucques at the end of April during our stay in LA, starting point of our road trip to San Francisco. We thought then that it was going to be a very hard act to follow and indeed, it was! The bar was set high right from the beginning in LA and every single... More

Couldn't have been better-bar, food and ambiance are tops. We took over the whole place and they treated us like royalty. The chocolate cake at the end was divine. Drank an Eastside-a superb cocktail adorned with a slice of cucumber. Get one.

It has been here for what seems like forever. Suzanne Goin has been making the scene with her simple elegant interoperation of food and service for years. She has made LA a place for foodies to travel to and this is the first of the empire.

Sunday the menu is simple. Appetizer, two choices for entree and desert. In expensive wines are suggested. Took my 2 kids and their significant others, wife and myself. We had a delightful time. Few cocktails, bottle of red and a bottle of white and we all enjoyed the food, service and ambience. Perfect way to kill the end of the... More

The place feels tired. The menu is promising off the page but the results are uninspired, almost bad. A salad entrée is big-standard, flavorless lettuce with a creamy looking vinaigrette that doesn't help it. The market fish was perfectly cooked but the accompanying carrot top chermoula was texturally horrible and the carrots themselves lacking in sweetness and cooked to an... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
