We went there because of it's history & reputation and happened to visit later again. The food and the service were good, but I wouldn't especially recommend this to a non-music lover. (Actually the music was a bit loud...) The latter time we enjoyed the terrace up to the closing time while chatting with a local guy. Anyway the place... More

The Rainbow Bar and Grill Los Angeles is an awesome place to hang out amongst the photos and memorabilia of the hundreds of rock stars and celebrities that have graced this Bar for dozens of years ! If you are luck you can go up to the upper sanctuary and sit in the Elvis booth or Beatles table while listening... More

As rock fans we had to eat here. It's busy, the food quality is ok, the service is quick. The music was my playlist from home and it's great fun trying to work out who is or was famous

Just great. Historic. Cool. Cosy. Great foods. Nice waiters. Nothing to complain about and really gives you the "real Hollywood" feeling. Don´t miss!

I wouldn't say this place is truly memorable food wise but for the history, this place is incredible. Tons to see, the staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and the beer selection is decent. I had the pizza which was nicely done with a light crispy crust. The only downside is that it is really hard to get tables at certain... More

Although bias, as a goal of mine was achieved by visiting the famous Rainbow Bar & Grill in LA. The Rainbow is known as a hangout for rock musicians and their groupies, from Dio, to Guns N' Roses, Lemmy and many other rockers! It is well worth a visit to view a piece of history as you start your trip... More

There is an outside bar and an inside bar and restaurant area full of photos and memorabilia. Service friendly. Menu is mix of Mex and Burgers etc and is pretty basic but tastes fine. Would recommend. Good value.

If you like rock, and are looking to have a beer and a late snack come here by night. Genuine rock feeling, nice selection of beers and food. Constantly visited by celebrities also. So don't hesitate, this is an LA must.

We like going to this very atmospheric and relaxing restaurant during day trips to LA, and find it a really nice place for a quiet lunch in a subdued light. The food's good and plentiful and the menu has a good selection. The only gripe this trip was that, on checking our bill, we found we had been seriously overcharged... More
