“Lunch with a 360 degree view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The Getty Restaurant serves the best crab cakes that I've ever had. Rather small, but thick and spicy. Accompany this with a glass of champagne and that leaves enough room for a decadent dessert. The service is great and the view on a clear day is unbeatable. Highly recommended.

“Great food, service and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Friendly staff, and very creative and excellent food. The view from the restaurant (and anywhere at the Getty) is incredible.

The best meal I had in Los Angeles.

“fantatic - do not miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

If you go to the Getty Center, plan to eat at its restaurant. You will not be disappointed. Our meals were all fantastic and we were treated like royalty there.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is a wonderful place to go to even if you don't visit the museum. It is open every day for lunch and weekends for dinner. The cuisine id California amazing. All fresh and organic. As beautiful as the presentation is , the taste is exquisite.When we ate there there were two menues, a a la carte and a three course pris fixe. The latter is a better value.
It's amazing what can be done with a simple recipie of tomates, arugala and Burrata cheese. The cod with miso dressing was fantastic. My companion had the carpaccio- which was excellent and the butternut squash risotto- oh my....
over cafe lattes we shared a honey cheescake...wonderful.
You must make reservations, unless you arrive after 2pm or so...
Bon Apetit !
