I had a great quick lunch here, so I could get back to the exhibits - but could happily have stayed a lot longer. Staff were terrific, and food was great. The kitchen was very happy to accommodate by requests, and lunch was available at 3pm!

Fantastic seafood bowl, super server (Lloyd), lovely to sit outside after viewing the museums or tar pits. Service was great, setting was pleasant, food including mushroom pizza was perfect.

My wife met her students touring the US of A. And they happen to be in LACMA, and their time is limited due to hectic schedules. We decided to sit down, have coffee in here. When we saw the menu, it was pretty tempting that they had wine instead. Hehe. The cheese board is amazing if you love cheeses! The... More

Ray’s Stark Restaurant bar where enjoyed a wonderful lunch consisting of a cioppino salad, toasted and a glass of wine. This is a terrific experience and we highly recommend. You can sit inside or out under an umbrella and return to the museum. Don't miss the Calders and the fountains.

Located near the entrance of the Los Angeles Museum of Art (LACMA) this wonderful little bar & bites establishment was perfect after hours in the museum. The big round, upholstered chairs and gleaming bar brought chic outside. We were beautifully served wine, water and a cheese platter that was both elegant and delicious (included thinly sliced apples,perfectly toasted bread, almonds,... More

We visited the La Brea Tar Pits on a cold and rainy day and happened upon Ray's and Starks as we were leaving. My husband and I each had 2 glasses of wine and we shared the truffle fries, the bill was $59. Expensive? Yes, but it was a pleasant place to sit outside with the heaters blasting and do... More

If you like "all American" food, this is not for you. They do have one expensive hamburger, but we found the food overpriced and too fussy.

I was in a party of six and we dropped by in the late afternoon of a very hot day after having eaten an early lunch at the food trucks across from LACMA, visited the Petersen Museum, and the La Brea Tar Pits. We had drinks and a couple of snacks. The service was excellent, we enjoyed the drinks, and... More

This is the restaurant at street level at the L.A. County Museum of Art. Seating inside is comfortable on padded, red, wrap-around chairs. Outside seating in Eames style chairs underneath pedestal heaters. Flatware is in a hidden drawer in the table. Suddenly, kitchen towels are the new napkins here as well as at several other L.A. restaurants. Maybe more absorbent... More
