We have been here numerous times, with out-of-town guests and every time there is a special exhibit we want to see. The food is fantastic and the views of L.A. - especially the window tables - are dramatic and impressive. It's a quintessential Southern California delight. This is one of the best restaurants in L.A. for a medium price. You... More

Nice dining, somewhat pricey. Good choices on menus. Fabulous views of the city, mountain and ocean.

I was surprised to find such an upscale restaurant at an American museum. White table cloths, cloth napkins, extensive wine and beer menu, and excellent service.

As a local resident, we go to Getty Center regularly. Usually we go to downstair cafe for quick, good lunch. This time we decided to give the Restaurant a try. I got the Scallop plate! What a amazing plate it was! Never ever in my life I had scallop so perfectly cooked in my life! For a costly place like... More

The food was wonderful and the view was amazing!! We enjoyed the Cheese and Charcuterie Board! It was big enough for 2. The Tomato Burrata and the house salad were so good. The Chicken with seasonal vegetables was nicely seasoned and huge. We enjoyed wine and Sangria. Reservations are a must!

The lunch was amazing!! I had a glass of Justin Sauvignon Blanc with my meal. We started with the cheese plate and for the main course had the Three Grain Risotto and the Brisket. Both were colorful and perfectly portioned for a lunch. All of lunch was delicious and we cannot wait to visit again!

Located at the Getty Museum, this is truly a gourmet restaurant. Indoor and outdoor seating, wonderful menu, and exceptional service! If you're looking for excellent food at the museum you have to try the Getty Center Restaurant

We were at the Getty Center on a busy Sunday. It took a while for the waiter to take our order and to get drinks, and it took a lot longer for food to arrive. We didn't have appetizers or desserts, just a main course and beverage each. It took about an hour and a half from when we were... More

Chose the restaurant for lunch rather than the outdoor café during our trip to the museum. The food was amazing. I had the mussels, which were extraordinary. More like a mini-bouillabaisse; beyond a doubt the best preparation I ever had. But the service was terrible. A 20-minute wait before our server came for the drink order. OK, the view is... More
