During our stay at the Sunset Tower Hotel, we had dinner in The Tower Bar (Dannon was an excellent server), along with late lunch/happy hour (Bethany was a pleasure as well). Food and service were perfect from our point of view.

Walked across the street to check out the tower and was really pleasantly surprised but such a cozy and intimate bar on Sunset. Beautiful room, great service and music, but pricey drinks.

Expensive, but tasty meals - unlike the hotel, which was an awful stay. Very trendy restaurant, make sure you're wearing your best! I was waiting for a celebrity to walk by my table.

From the scent of lilies to the immediate warmth of the atmosphere to the view over Los Angeles to the kind and precise service and, finally, to the food, dining at the Tower Bar was just a terrific experience. I ate once on Sunday night, with a friend, and the scene was genuinely friendly, low-key, and sophisticated. We got a... More

Visited here with my wife on honeymoon. Tremendous evening. Staff & food were excellent. Crab cakes, artichoke hearts, lamb & salmon were all delicious. Highly recommended meal.

I have spent the last 5 weeks in Los Angeles and had the pleasure of attending the beautiful Tower Bar numerous times. It is by far the pinnacle of Los Angeles Old Hollywood. Atmosphere, food and service were amazing. Soliana, our waitress, was so attentive and funny, she made us feel at home. I will be back in a few... More

I will continue to recommend this place for brunch, lunch and dinner because it's great. My first visit here was for brunch. Umm...YUM. The omelets and avocado toasts were unbelievable and everyone was happy with their meal. Customer service was top of notch. The manager (supervisor Angel) came to our table many times just to check how are we doing.... More

This restaurant/bar is in the 1920s style, quite old-fashioned, fabulously discreet, excellent, but 1st class food (my husband ordered off menu and the chef put together a memorable seafood & smoked salmon sald). I had scallops, we had puddings and biscuits. Staff are fantastic. Would go again if I won the Lottery! (No, it;s not cheap.)

Had the pleasure of several meals at the Tower Bar during a getaway to LA staying at the Sunset Tower hotel. The service at the Tower Bar Restaurant was impeccable, from the welcome by Kelly to the check-in by Angel who wanted to ensure all was good which of course it was thanks to Vika's attention to our needs.
