I rarely walk out of restaurants but I was so mad about how long it took to get a drink I wasn't going to enjoy it. I've been before and service was slow but this was beyond the limits of my patience. We sat down, ordered two drinks and after 15 minutes I walked up to the bar where our... More

This bar is next to the LACMA museum. It is an expensive restaurant with a large variety of alcoholic drinks wines and beers. The food is served in small portions but good taste. Weekends it may be complicated to sit.

Fab place to have a rest between pavilions at LACMA. The cocktails are great, staff friendly and seating inviting. What more can be said. Oh! So many different types of water!

We visited the Restaurant/Bar after a visit to the museum. It is great outdoor seating, nice atmosphere and stylish. Just what the doctor needed after a long visit. The food was excellent ( loved the pizza with goat cheese) and they even have a kids choice menue. A bit pricey but the quality and the location compensated for this. Will... More

Stopped for a bite while at LACMA. The menu is interesting and should have something to satisfy everyone. The avocado toast was interesting and delicious. Pizza was also freshly made to order and tasty. The wine selection was much better than expected but the French fries were incredible! I would go back for just wine and fries. Service was great...

The restaurant is lively but service tends to be slow to poor. The kitchen does not seem to be able to handle busy days successfully. The menu is a mix of small plates, pizzas and main dishes. A good selection of wines by the glass

This is a really nice place to have a glass of wine with a plate of cheese on a warm summer afternoon. Specially when there is some Jazz being played just in front of you on summer Fridays. Every time I come to LA I go there and I love it. The staff is amazing, from the welcome person to... More

Sunday was beautiful out and we wanted to go to LACMA to view the current exhibitions and take a stroll around the extensive property. Our kids just needed to know were we going to get to eat. Of course, we ate at Rays. Our kids have a sophisticated palette, when they want to. We all had the most amazing brunch;... More

After visiting the La Brea Tar Pits we walked over to Ray's Restaurant for lunch. We had a nice table outside and were able to enjoy watching the people pass by. I ordered the Chicories salad which was very good but a little on the small side. I wish it had been a little larger. My husband had some sort... More
