“Old time Hollywood”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

Combination of a good place to eat and drink, and historical place to see. Pics on the walls of Hollywood stars who have been here in the past. Almost like a Hollywood Hall Of Fame. Great 1940s atmosphere.

“great everything!”
Reviewed September 15, 2006

at first.. off combination of both worlds..... old hollywood million pictures of mostly dead celebs.... dark dark interior... has cool dive bar atmosphere... but.. then the food was current and fusion and tapas in style. very very good...

had 5 items for the 2 of us... and everything was just great.

met chef matthew gladstone who was "bold" like his food!

loved the drinks.. only complaint.. was a touch dark for us inside but... woujld go back again
