Food was good, service was... ok. I ate here while staying at the Roosevelt for business. There aren't a lot of dining options in this part of town that are walkable and I just didn't feel like going out. I sat at the bar for dinner and though food was good, it was expensive for what it was and service... More

It was my wife's 65th birthday and we had planned to eat elsewhere, however so glad we came here. The staff although not fully trained were very attentive and obliging. Nothing was too much trouble and the little birthday dessert was a lovely touch. The food was very good. The only issue was the noise from the hotel bar which... More

The Public Kitchen and Bar is located in the Roosevelt Hotel old lobby. The room is empty most of the time during lunch because there are other places that people hang out in the hotel. The place is very charming with old booths, wooden table and chairs and a nice bar that looks like a part of the old lobby.... More

My wife and I were staying at the Hollywood Roosevelt over the Thanksgiving weekend. When we decided that we were going to have dinner the The Public Kitchen and Bar.

We needed a late reservation due to a work situation and the restaurant was so accommodating! The food was excellent and our waiter was superb. On of the diners in our party has food allergies and the waiter was so on top of it!! The desert was also amazing!!

We had dinner here prior to going to a concert at the Dolby Theatre across the street, and it was a great choice. The atmosphere is trendy, as you'd expect for a happening bar in the center of Hollywood. The service was professional and prompt--our waitress asked if we were headed to a show even before we thought to mention... More

I had a wonderful experience overall. I was having dinner at Public the other night, and a girl named Andrea escorted me and my boyfriend up. She was incredibly friendly and also pointed out the stairwell where Shirley Temple learned to dance! It was amazing to be in a place with so much history and also, to be a part... More

Oh man, ordered sea bass with gluten free options. Instead of cous cous, the chef made this magical cauliflower cous cous-like stuff. It was unbelievable! The atmosphere, the food...well I am one grateful woman.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
