The restaurant is most elegant with perfect service with each detail covered. All the food I have had has been superb and I would especially recommend the Santa Barbara shrimp dish as an appetizer.

We ordered the Chef's Tasting and it was amazing! Although VERY pricey, the service and food were all exceptional. The meal lasted a little over three hours.

If/when you can go to Providence you will be treated to the best experience in LA! Everything is amazingly fresh and while it's famous for seafood the Wagyu is the best.

This is easily our favorite LA restaurant. I highly recommend getting the Chef tasting menu for $220 - it's worth every penny. The 20 course meal was fantastic. Everything was so memorable and delicious. You also get a little muffin as a to go present. Best meal in LA!

This French restaurant with a bit of Japanese influence is a great place for entertaining friends and family for special occasion. The tasting menu is a safe bet since they do a great job in putting together a combination of wonderful and creative dishes that complement very well with each other. The service is very attentive and friendly.

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.
