Took my brother here for his 30th birthday dinner and there’s was nothing left to want! Spectacular tasting menu with excellent wines suggested by the fine sommelier. Couldn’t have picked a better spot to celebrate and see what the best of LA has to offer!

This restaurant is the definition of a ‘fine dining’ experience - chic and expensive. If you aren’t familiar with the menu it is a multiple course menu prefix. You have the choice of different course tasting menus somewhere between 5-20 courses, with the 20 course...More

We go to Providence most years to celebrate my husband’s birthday. It is definitely for special occasions in our minds - well-deserved Michelin stars, but you certainly pay for the high quality experience. That said, it has always been a perfect evening - we order...More

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.

I guess it depends how you want to splurge. This place is pricey and high quality, so for many people, it's a treat saved for dinner. When I was on vacation there in Sept, having lunch fit best in my schedule, and I liked... More
