Nothing on the strip is cheap but this place is very laid back and slightly set back from the strip which gives it a more casual feeling. I mean your walking distance from Beverly Hills so you know it can't be cheap. But walking distance from the Ranbow bar and grill, the Roxy, and the Whiskey a go go. Anot... More

A great atmosphere to start with. You will be wowed by the reception, the experience, and the expectation. Reservation in advance is a must as it is almost impossible to take walk in. Value priced although not cheap. The food is amazing as they seem to have low variety however great food preparation. The only problem is the lack of... More

Great character, excellent food, fabulous atmosphere! A must when in LA. The history of this place and the unique atmosphere is a wonderful spot to grab a late dinner.

We stopped by to have breakfast and see the famous Chateau. Very fun, however, dont show up early! This is a place where everyone has been up late and therefore will be having brunch haha!

We had lunch here one day on our trip to LA - I have to say, upon entering this establishment initially, it was such a beautiful feeling. The trees, the building, the cars, the driveway. The staff who greet you upon arrival and then you finally reach the interior - It is such a great experience just to even walk... More

Called in to this imposing chateau - in LA! Heard all the stories of it but was wonderful to have the opportunity to actually see it! Had drinks at the outside bar( no photos allowed because of the star studded clientele ), which was perfect. As we left, we asked if we could see further and were treated to an... More

When you hear the words chateau marmont decadence splendour and excitement spring to mind. Hence a breakfast was moved from the unspectacular sunset tower to said chateau for experiential voyeurism. What a disappointment. A jittery hostess who told us our table wasn't ready ( really at that time?) sleeveless on a cold may morning and no other guests at 9... More

We had a birthday lunch here and really enjoyed it. It has a real old world Hollywood charm and I expected to see a starlet slink past! The food was good frankly had better and it ain't cheep but I just loved the whole atmosphere. Suggest booking a table in advance or going out of meal times but then it's... More

OMG. Saw two movie stars and a Supermodel . Can't beat that. Weather was perfect for sitting outside. Expensive but the building alone is worth a look.

Staying in West Hollywood

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.
