Incredible bar, incredible music, and the restaurant is fabulous. Wonderful chef, wonderful staff...and it’s like stepping back in time in Los Angeles. My only regret is that this was our first visit. It won’t be our last. We can’t wait to go back.

This place hasn't changed at all in the 15 years I have been going and probably not much since the 1950s when it opened. Great place for dinner and cocktails with live music in the bar as well. Inexpensive parking as well.

After reading a number of reviews, we just had to go check it out! Our main goal was to hear the legendary Marty and Elaine show in the lounge, so we decided to have dinner first. The atmosphere is akin to an aging/vintage supper club,...More
