“It's okay...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

True, the food is overpriced, but I didn't think it was horrible. It was okay and it's there. I do wish the food was better, but it is nice to eat outside on the terrace. Most people are rushing through their food and hurrying away. It is nice to relax, enjoy the view and get away from the crowd for awhile.

“It's better to be at the end of the Universe”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Griffith's Observatory is a wonderful and very interesting place but we can't say the same about the cafè. Coffee and pastries are horrible, the service is not existing and prices are very high.

“Only Douglas Adams would have loved it....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

It is the bar inside the Griffith Observatory. The wonderful and fascinating location would deserve something much better. Coffé is terrible, pastries and sandwiches are terrible, service is unattentive and the wole thing is very expensive.
Only Douglas Adams with his love for paradoxes could have liked it

“Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

The food was over priced and stale. Had the nacho's to share with my son and they were just gross. While there was other food there like fresh fruit I didn't try any of that, since it was just as expensive as the nachos and there wasn't enough to share.

“Quality food at a visitor attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

one of those rare occasions when the food is as good as the attraction. Wolfgang Puck's food is just right and reasonably priced too. Well worth a visit.
