The food is delicious...try the stuffed salmon! Don't forget the garlic bread. There's a very good wine list, too. The service is excellent, ambience perfect for conversation, and the Hollywood history of the place is great fun. We try to eat here every time we come to town.

This is an old style Hollywood restaurant. Yes, a lot of stars have eaten there over the years. It has a very nice menu...maybe a little pricey but not bad. You don't have to dress up. Their Sunday Brunch is HUGE with everything in the world on it; and, their garlic bread can not be beat. The best !

You walk in and it looks like an old Hollywood restaurant. The atmosphere is perfect and the food is amazing. Not only is the food quality great but the portions are huge. Get a chicken pot pie and they will literally bring you one the size of a whole pie. It does not hurt that the occasional celebrity can be... More

A throwback to the white tablecloth restaurants, serving huge amounts of steak, ribs, with onion rings and corn on the cob. Lots of Hollywood memorabilia on the walls. Valet parking, of course! No longer smoke filled, as I suspect it was in the past. Pleasant staff. Excellent perfect manhatten

Our family of 5 walked in excited to eat lunch here, stood in front of the hostess who was on the phone for about 15 minutes, talking to who knows who, we were never acknowledged by her or anyone else for that matter, walked out 15 minutes later, she was still on the phone.

Great food, although it is a bit pricey. George Clooney is a regular and even named his film company after this joint as he frequented it so often-and still does. A favourite of Clint Eastwood too! Food tastes great and good service is available.

This place has been around for a very long time. We used to go there as kids for their amazing garlic bread. The only thing that remains the same is the bread. We through a large party here for my Mother in Laws 70th birthday. The service was awful. They treated ys like an imposition. The decor is dated and... More

This iconic Hollywood steakhouse, located across the street from the Warner Bros. Studios, has been feeding Hollywood Royalty for 60 years. Excellent traditional steakhouse menu, amazing garlic/cheese bread and, believe it or not, probably the best New England Clam Chowder south of San Francisco (ask for a dash of Sherry in it for a touch of decadence).

Really old style restaurant and menu. Been there for dinner and the basic fare is good. Prime rib is a favorite of the regulars. It has a very nice bar area with good value at happy hour.
