Buggy Whip in Ladera Heights was recently sold. I was really disappointed in the new menu and the food. The only item on the menu that reminded me of the restaurant that I have loved for over 30 years was the green goddess salad dressing....More

Buggy Whip is a step back in time. High back leather booths, good drinks and "mature" servers. Ask for a both in the piano bar room and you will be entertained throughout dinner with old classics played by a piano player who has been playing...More
