We've been here before, and each time it is perfect. From greeting to goodbyes, the service is flawless and polite. Interactions are very appropriate, especially the food and wine descriptions. The owner, Donato, was very gracious with our table and explained the very high standards they keep and how the staff tastes the specials so there is deep knowledge of... More

We met friends during a trip to LA - it's a great fine dining experience (at expected high price). You are offered a choice of pre-fix menus (with some choices as well as options to add). The service all around was excellent and the food arrivals are managed properly. The food was very very good, with a few highlights (sea... More

3.5 stars! One star lost due to undercooked, nearly raw fish main course. Half star lost due to the otherwise excellent staff removing my main course without wondering why half the raw fish remained on the plate. Perhaps the staff is convinced chef can do no wrong. Ego should be balanced with consistency. A well prepared main course should be... More

Possibly the bet meal of my life. Every dish, every mouthful had the WOW factor. There is so much attention to detail in every part of the dishes. We tried the chef's 12 course tasting menu and it was really unique. I would highly recommend this for anyone that's a real foodie.

From the amuse-bouche to the muscato-paired desserts, this restaurant is in a league of it's own. The kitchen delivers flavors your tastebuds will never forget. The Michelin Star guide needs to seriously get back to L.A. and give this place some more stars.

Everything about this restaurant is 10/10. The service was great! Food came at a steady pace and I never had to wait awhile for the next dish to come. The white truffle was amazing with the dishes they offered. I had it with the omelette and ravioli. Overall this place is a must try if you want to go to... More

This is by far the best restaurant we've been to in Los Angeles! We did the 16 course chef tasting menu with wine pairing. Highly recommend!

We went for the twelve courses and each one was a little gem. We live in Las Vegas where great restaurants abound but this one out-does them all. We were seated in the smaller dining room which was fine with me because it was quiet and I have a hearing problem. We spent the evening there, nearly four hours, and... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
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 partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
