We came here on a Sunday evening with 9 people and were seated on the patio. It was a great choice for dinner. It is pricier but in my opinion but not outrageous. Many restaurants in LA are spendy so we had no issue with the pricing. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I had the pasta... More

Went here with a group of 12 and had the back room. We could control the music playing and let the staff serve us a chef's selection across the entire evening. All in all a fantastic setting with great food and excellent service. Lots of fun cars to look at in the parking lot too! A must see in West... More

Although it is known for it's food, Ago serves the best peach martini with fresh slices of peach in the glass. We were a party of eight and enjoying both red and white wines, but when I was served my martini most of the table decided to have one too. We had burrata cheese, veal, fresh fish and everything was... More

We went to Ago with a group of eight. We clearly were not the crowd the waiters would expect to dine there. Most of us weren't hungry enough for a full 3-course menu. So we ordered Pizzas, Risottos and Lasagnes - all of which costs about 20 dollars each for starter sized portions. The Risottos weren't made with proper Risotto... More

Let me cut to the chase; I'm 62 and have dined in more than my share of fine restaurants in several countries. The meal I had at Ago the night before last was, simply put, just outstanding!

We decided to take advantage of DineLA, and try AGO, which is a pricey well known restaurant in West Hollywood. The experience was great! their patio is very lively and they offered a very nice 3 course meal that included an appetizer, entrée and dessert. I had the polenta with mushrooms, and my wife had the calamari, both delicious. Then... More

We enjoy AGO - the service is great - the waiters are charming and knowledgeable - it's a real restaurant.....but this time we felt the food was not as good as it used to be - not quite hot enough - not quite as well cooked - not very inventive - not quite keeping up with standards of quality and...

Last night I had a great dinner at AGO, one of many over the years. We had booked a table on the patio and were seated promptly even though not all of our party had arrived. The ambiance on the patio is just great and the crowd is always interesting. The waiters at AGO are true professionals who really know... 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.
