We were a party of 6. They seated us for our 6pm reservation though 2 of our party were running a little late - stuck in traffic. Our waiter was attentive, and did not rush us. We had appetizers, entrees, and dessert. The fried chicken was a disappointment, but we are from the south and were reluctant to order in... More

Amazing food, great armosphere, nice people, excellent service, and celebs! They take reservations 30 days in advance and I highly recommend that! I arrived a bit early to grab a drink at the bar ($18 glass of wine). I was alone and a wonderful group of people asked me to join them for the champagne they just ordered! I got... More

Some people love this place, however, I am not one of them. It needs some fresh air and a better crowd.

If you want to eat here I suggest you make a reservation, you can even reserve up to one month in advance. The food here was delicious I ordered the 8 ounce steak and it was cooked to my perfection, I had the blue cheese on the side. We also ordered the Honey crusted chicken and that to me tasted...

Being a resident of the West side, any Angeleno will agree, it's tough to make it out of your neighborhood for many of the cities wonderful establishments. I'm sooo glad I made the trip on Saturday. I could go into appetizers, the service, my never empty glasses or never feeling rushed, but I won't, because the truffle fried chicken was... More

The owner, Craig, was in the restaurant saying hello to the patrons. He's very likable with a great personality. He takes a personal interest in how one is enjoying the food. He takes great pride in his place. The food is delicious! Everything that we ordered was top of the line. I'm happy that I've found a restaurant to entertain... More

I had a 9o'clock reservation on a Thursday at this restaurant. We checked in with the maitre d right on time. We noticed people arriving later being seated so we asked at 9:20... he didn't look at the book, only said that they were busy. At 9:45 my boyfriend went back to the maitre d to check on time again.... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
