This is a terrific 2-star Michelin restaurant with seafood prominent on its menu. Despite its elevated Michelin status, it is unpretentious and thoroughly professional in a low-key way. It is expensive but thoroughly worth it.

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

Sorry that I did not see this question sooner. This is not a loud restaurant. Ask for a table that will allow you to sit side by side for truly intimate conversation in the French manner
