“Hell's kitchen (and dining room)”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Gordon. There is a restaurant in LA that is using your name. You need to pay them a visit and put them through the hoopla you have put countless other restaurants with no idea.

Your greeter is lovely and chatty. Great. Unless you are the next arriving customer and she is off being lovely and chatty to the previous customer.

The extended love seat configuration of 2 tables for 2 needs to go. We didn't want to sit with them and they certainly didn't want us sitting with them either. It is not a youth hostel.

Server offered "ice cold filtered water" which was luke warm.

I admit I ordered a crap bottle of wine. Mea culpa.

Menu selections: I have broad tastes but nothing really appealed among the starters. I had the corn corn soup which was actually quite nice. But no soup spoon. It was the same dessert spoon used at breakfast (we were staying at the hotel).

My wife had the lobster roll where the "roll" referred to a sweet bread roll or brioche, rather than the shape of the lobster. Maybe we should have asked. It wasn't good and came with the same potato crisps that they serve the burgers and hotdogs by the pool.

Two beef fillets for mains. Can't stuff that up, can you? I ordered mine medium rare at it was medium well. Wife ordered hers medium and it was also medium well, perhaps a little less cooked than mine. C'mon guys! And it was a plate of dry food. No sauce to speak of.

The charcoal grilled cauliflower side dish was inexplicably almost a cauliflower curry - heavy on the cumin and curry powder, served with yoghurt and sultanas. The asparagus with Parmesan was very cheesy.

Dessert: wife ordered the "lemon custard and burnt meringue" which was a lemon meringue pie. I ordered the pistachio creme brûlée which was a brûlée cake with a soft soggy unappealing base.

The cost for this exercise in fault-ridden suppose fine dining was $260. I would not recommend it.

The following night we ate at Spago - that is what fine dining is all about. The lovely server at Spago spoke highly of Gordon Ramsay on the basis of his many visits. I can understand why he eats there.

“great Quiche and breakfast”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Beautiful hotel--but was up all night-for 3 nights-room faced Sunset Blvd--should face Santa Monica Blvd. First time I stayed on that side--never again--came home exhausted.And coffee cups never cleaned,and the Kureig(which I love) needed to be cleaned. Asked for a new(different machine) they said they would send one,and never did. Rooms are twice as large as The Four Seasons

“Fab birthday celebration”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Decided on this restaurant as a special celebration dinner for my partners birthday with friends. Loved the space, food was amazing and service was excellent. Food servings were a good size but starters were very small so wouldn't order any in the future but will definitely be back. Was a fun and special experience.

“Great breakfast!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Ate here every morning for breakfast. The buffet was not overpowering as it didn't have too many choices but what was served was excellent. Great mini quiches and croissants!
