5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

Great food, well priced, exceptionally friendly staffer who looked after us, nice surroundings, nice view, valet....the food was very tasty and modern, the decor was classy and cool, nice wine list, easy valet service, just off sunset boulevard and close to Whisky and Go Go for the tourist. Big thumbs up!

“Food is excellent, service is very good, not excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Ordered the Chef's five course tasting with the wine flight. The dinner was excellent. We did like the wine pairing, although we didn't agree with one of the wine pairings. Maybe this was because my husband was a sommelier in Wine Country during college. Although we ordered the chef's tasting I also wanted to try the Lobster Risotto to see what mine should taste like. The waiter never brought the risotto or ever mentioned he had forgotten it. To be fair we were not charged for it either. I just thought this caliber of a restaurant would have better service than it had.

“Utterly awful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Gordan Ramsey should stop worrying about being a media darling and focus on serving edible food at his ubiquitous restaurants. The kitchen produces food with utter lack of confidence for an audience of tourists, B-list celebrities, business folk, and gay couples. Lunch would have been better (and cheaper) at a fast food restaurant down the street. The Burrata Cheese and Artichoke Salad was droopy; the Roasted Chicken and Lemon Risotto tasted more like rice a roni and chicken, but the Lemon Verbena Cheesecake wasn't bad. You'd be better off just doing the London After Five menu where you can get a decent fish n chips for only five bucks!

“Kitchen Nightmare”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

Although I had heard that the restaurant was a bit overpriced and not as good as one would expect from a Gordon Ramsay restaurant, we decided to go anyway for my husband's birthday as he loves watching Kitchen Nightmares.

Warnings asides, I was unprepared for how bad a meal a restaurant with such a pedigree could serve. The food was horrid... the chicken tasted off, the potatoes had a lingering aftertaste of chemical burn and the "souffle" tasted like rubber.

To add just that bit of insult to injury... the bill was outrageous! It's also important to note that the menu on their website is somewhat unrelated to what they actually offer.

So if you're considering this place, do yourself a favor and go somewhere else...anywhere else.

“Delicious Dinner with a View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

I loved this restaurant. It's a little pricey. I suggest one of the prix fixe options (there are several). Wonderful service.
