Ezcellent atmosphere and food. One of— if not the best- fish restos in LA. Highly recommend. This is the same chef who owns Connie and Teds in West Hollywood.

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
