Ate here twice. Once when we stayed at the hotel and another just for the Monday night special of the Fried Chicken. Both meals were good from the starters to the famous make your own sundaes. I understand why they have a no photography policy as we saw celebs both times we ate there. We were sitting next to Nicholas... More

Good drinks and very friendly bartenders. Great place to spot celebs, although you have to look hard because the lighting is so dim!

We've wanted to come here for a while but felt that dinner at night would not be as good as breakfast on the Terrace. They have a breakfast buffet and a good selection of breakfast and brunch items. We ate on a sunday morning. It was quite quiet with just a few more people some of whom were also staying... More

The service was fantastic! We came on a sunday for a late lunch during DineLA week and had the tower burger and fries. Incredibly delicious. Must try the margaritas...some of the best I've had. The view is beautiful and I will definitely come back!

Simply awful. Forgot our first round. Then would take 15 mins for the other rounds. They were not busy at the time, it was only 1pm in the afternoon!

Great place for dinner or drinks. Art Deco decor, quiet laid back ambience brings you back to old Hollywood, tho not so much so that it isn't still very current. Best of all worlds. Have an affair w your wife there, why not.

Great American bar atmosphere, suitable for romantic dinners but also meeting with friends. The cocktails are top edge, the service high class. We ordered the tuna tartare and roasted chicken for dinner, we can recommend both! The only negative point is that some tables in the restaurant are tightly squeezed together.

This restaurant exceeded our expectations in every way and we really enjoyed the setting and overall food quality of the restaurant. We had a mix of appetizers and mains and all were tasty, well prepared and fresh. The cocktails were nice and the setting intimate. The service was outstanding and overall this was a fun place to dine. We thought... More

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.
