“Great place for an after-theater meal”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

After a Sunday matinee of "Book of Mormon," we walked down to Sunset to Magnolia for an early dinner. We were the only ones in the place until about 5:30. The restaurant ambiance is great, and our server was very helpful and attentive. We had the seared ahi, the scallops, and a French dip sandwich. The wasabi mashed potatoes that came with the ahi were terrific. Everyone practically licked their plates, but we saved room to share an chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich for dessert. Perfect end to the meal! A little pricy, but overall we recommend Magnolia for anyone looking for a before- or after-theater dining spot.

“Hollywood dinner surprise”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

A LA friend took us to this place and you know what they say, if the locals go there it must be good. And it was. You wouldn't expect a good restaurant because it's not really in the vacinity of other more touristy places. But I think tourists aren't the target group of this Italian-ish bistro. The food however should appeal to a big audience. With tasty risotto, good pasta's, crispy salads or (if you're just feeling a bit pekish) a big sandwich.

“Excellent food & service, with perfect Hollywood location”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

High quality restaurant with interesting menu and top service. We have eaten here several times over the years and enjoy it thoroughly. Very convenient to the Pantages Theater and other Hollywood spots. At this last visit, Stevie Wonder and his party wandered in!

“Consistently Delicious!”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

I've been coming here for YEARS and practically have it on my open table homepage at all times. It's the perfect spot for lunch or dinner, with friends or colleagues. Always excellent food, and solid service.

My favorites: the beet and avocado salad, the tuna sandwich, skirt steak with fries and green beans. But the whole menu is great.
