Pick a warm night and request a poolside table. I had the chicken paillard and a very delicious bottle of rose. Felt like summer and really enjoyed the experience.

The Tower Bar at Sunset Tower is as glamorous and intimate as a restaurant can get. The low ceilings, piano, large bar and quiet, reserved ambiance can cast a spell on you. The expertly concocted martinis straight up did their job for us. We sat at what I would consider a perfect banquette table for two with views over Hollywood.... More

Arrived early before our room was ready and went to the poolside seating for some nosh and wine. After looking at the menu and narrowing it down to a couple of ideas, Joseph and Jonathan made their suggestions. Wow, they were spot on. Add that to the vista overlooking the city, we couldn't have been happier with our decision to... More

Came on a Monday night (Sunday and Mondays are the quietest) to celebrate our 14 year anniversary. Were seated in the best and most private seats in the restaurant. Five star all round. We ordered the 3 course special being green salad, Fried chicken and vegetables and warm chocolate cake. The chicken was the crunchiest and best tasting ever had.... More

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.
