Food is excellent. No question there. Service is top notch. So we ended up spending $700 for 2 people which included the wine service. Was it worth it? I feel like I could have gotten more out of the money by going to another really...More

This is a terrific 2-star Michelin restaurant with seafood prominent on its menu. Despite its elevated Michelin status, it is unpretentious and thoroughly professional in a low-key way. It is expensive but thoroughly worth it.

The main thing and most important one, is that the food tastes great. Every single dish had an incredible combination of flavors. Most of them on the smoky side, but still great. Service was nice and friendly. Downside, the decor is old and not very...More

Well. Honestly not impressed for 700$ Chef tasting for two. I was brought here for a surprise birthday and was un-impressed. It started by being placed next to a woman that was sneezing all over the table. So we were moved to a louder corner...More

One of the more expensive in LA but well worth it. We usually go for lunch on Fridays, the only lunch day, and go with the menu and wine accompanying for me and glass for my wife. Every dish is great as are all the...More

Professional personnel, intense flavors, homely ambient. No dress code, the attire of diners was smart casual. We added two dishes to the tasting menu of our choice. Which were well-welcomed by the chef and thoughtfully added between courses.

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

Sorry that I did not see this question sooner. This is not a loud restaurant. Ask for a table that will allow you to sit side by side for truly intimate conversation in the French manner
