It's a wonderful place -- excellent food. But for me, it's just too expensive. I guess Michelin stars mean you can charge a lot. But I'd rather pay a bit less and go more often.

Best occasion restaurant in Los Angeles unless you are wealthy enough to eat there everyday (in which case, go for it). Exquisite food and service, hushed interior without any stodginess. We do not drink alcohol and, unlike many other highly rated restaurants here or in...More

Love this place. The tasting menu is amazing as is the wine pairing. It takes a while so set a couple hours aside for the meal.

This is the perfect restaurant for food forward people with “large wallets “ to celebrate special occasions. The small plate tasting menu dishes are visually exquisite and delicious. The wine pairing is perfect, the pouring abundant......more than enough for 2 to share.

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

Carpeted interior, although you'll be near other diners it won't feel like it. Super intimate.
