Just a gorgeous dining experience - great food, superb service and a wonderful ambience. Feels utterly superb. Visited twice on recent business trip and both visits were excellent. This is what a restaurant should be like. It is expensive, but we visited a number of other similarly priced restaurants around, and none of them made you feel as welcome as... More

I've been to Sunset Towers off and on for many years. I came in on weekend for lunch and had a wonderful experience. James Lukanik made my visit exceptional. The food as usual is very good, but the service has gone from good to exceptional. James made us feel welcomed and at home. I will definitely continue to visit the... More

The Tower Bar was a wonderful dining experience. The service was outstanding, the food fantastic, and the ambiance very Hollywood. While it is not inexpensive, it was more reasonably priced than expected as several entrees included a side so you didn't not have to order everything a la carte. The salmon was incredible, as was the filet and chicken. Great... More

The food was amazing and Bobbi, our server, was terrific. We had the short ribs which were out of this world!

We ate dinner and breakfast at the Tower Bar. The meals were perfect in every way, but the real difference between The Tower Bar and other great restaurants is Tower Bar's people. The Food and Beverage Manager, James Lukanik treated us like old friends, and by the time we finished our meal, we were truly friends. My steak was the... More

While I love the Tower Bar, it was a crazy night (two nights before the Grammys). Some good star sightings, and the food was terrific, but it was so crowded that it was hard to get by the bar on our way out. Not a quiet spot.

The restaurants at Sunset Tower are some of my favorite places in LA -- especially the Terrace. The view from the pool is so beautiful you feel like you have left the city and the food is spectacular. I love coming for a relaxing brunch with friends on a nice day. The service is attentive and friendly. Angel is our... More

My husband and I live in the area and we love to stop by The Tower Bar for a drink. I know it's Grammy weekend, so I checked the reservations website to make sure the restaurant was open and it was accepting reservations, so we decided to stop in. However, when we arrived we were turned away at the door... More

While there are more storied locales such as the Polo Lounge or the Chateau Marmont, you are not going to experience Hollywood glamour, new and old alike, more completely than at the Tower Bar. This is what restaurants were and always should be: outstanding and understated service, terrific and consistent food, urbane and elegant environment and entertainment, and a feast... More
