Description: At a hotel with a restaurant named "RESTAURANT", your own anonymity goes without saying. If you're going to live like an A-lister, you might as well eat like one. For those looking for a sophisticated setting, opt for our sleek yet intimate dining room. Or, if you'd rather enjoy creations under the sun or stars, you can't beat the garden view from the patio of RESTAURANT at SUNSET MARQUIS.

My husband and I decided to have a romantic evening in Hollywood, and had a wonderful time at Sunset Marquis Restaurant. The ambience is superb, reminds me of The Bel Air Hotel, which has bungalows for rent among the trees, lots of trees, waterfalls and a koi pond, The lighting was festive but low key, the food was delicious, and the service unobtrusive and elegant. I felt very pampered and relaxed. We had the prime rib which was sliced and tender, perfectly cooked, and the fixed menu was 4 courses, including a potato and nettle soup, tender greens salad, main course of prime rib on mashed potatoes, and Buche de Noel for dessert, and Veuve Cliquot was our choice of beverage. I would definitely come here again!

As you drive up, you think "ordinary." The minute you walk into the property, you know "extraordinary."

I've been a West Hollywood resident for more than 16 years now, and we get many of LA's most fab-n-fashionable restaurants on a regular basis. I eat out all the time, but had never been to the Sunset Marquis until today. This relative old timer was a real pleaser today at brunch....as you make your make into the property, which seems to go on forever amongst cool modern architecture and stunning gardens, you see celebrity and luxury but everything is taken in stride. The atmosphere is cool and relaxed and the service is unobtrusive but attentive.

Champagne is free pouring as you make your way through the salad station with spicy Thai noodles, silky beets & Stilton, fresh smoked salmon, broccolini and cauliflower, a sushi station, fresh boiled jumbo shrimp and bagels and cream cheese if you like. At the omelette station, go crazy with everything from fresh spinach to crispy bacon to vermouth scrambled eggs with chives. Or have a crepe at the crepe station...chocolate, fresh raspberries or both! Roasted chicken, crab cakes and prime rib round out the protein choices. Dessert includes a stunning Nutella and salty coco cookie, flourless chocolate cake and fresh whipped cream among other delectables. Nothing is left undone. Coffee is perfect and service couldn't be more subtle but on the cues.

You can find more expensive certainly in this town that LOVES expensive, but in terms of atmosphere and quality, the Sunset Marquis is at the top of our list. You forget you're in Los Angeles and feel ensconced in a quiet, luxury atmosphere that celebrity guests have loved this place for over many decades. If you love luxe brunch, this is the place.

Set in an idyllic setting, in an open air or internal room, surrounded by trees and water. Food Devine, service great.

Food was amazing and not overly pricey!! The view overlooking the waterfall and Koi pond was truly quite serene.

Nice hidden location, an oasis tucked into the middle of the property. The menu is great and lots of options but for me it's the setting and the transition from indoors to outdoors is seamless. The small bar next to the restaurant is fun and great to connect with other guests of the hotel. Very laid back vibe.
