My fiancee and I had a wonderful dinner here. Our servers were very attentive and offered wonderful wine and food suggestions. The filet was tender and flavorful. The desserts left me thinking I'd have to roll back down the hill instead of taking the tram back to the parking lot. The restaurant is quiet, and one can easily hold a... More

Nice restaurant for lunch at the Getty center. We made reservations before our visit, which I recommend since it was quite crowded. The staff is really friendly and professional. I had a risotto together with s glass of wine, and it was so good!

If you're going to visit the Getty Center I would recommend having lunch at this restaurant. The menu has an excellent selection of food and drink. We did not have a reservation but fortunately we arrived early so we were able to get in. If you're there in the Summer I would recommend having a reservation. Our waiter was excellent!... More

Quick after getting tickets to the Dunhuang caves we booked a late lunch. After hiding from sun under umbrellas, lunch at the restaurant was an oasis of cool. Shared a fish dish (halibut) and a salad. Meal was very nice. have been here previously for dinner. Lunch was sublime. Make this stop part of your Getty experience!

We had a quick salad at this restaurant. A bit expensive for the hummus salad which was good. Shared a beer. All in all good

It seems that most people favor the cafe over the restaurant (we had little trouble getting seated, even though the museum was packed. Salads and appetizers (especially the yellowtail crudo) excellent, as was the risotto. Not terribly expensive for a place with a million dollar view in all directions.

Thank AggieJoe79
