There have been some very bad reviews lately. The chef has recently been replaced and the high quality is back. My spouse and I dined there Jan 8, 2017 for Sunday brunch. We enjoyed the chicken pot pie and the ratatouille. Both excellent and imaginative preparations. Also split a yummy chocolate desert.

The food choice is limited but the quality is good. I would highly recommend you to ask for a small portion if you are not too hungry. A good quality price value.

We were there with 9 people, 5 of whom were visiting from out of town and had never been to LA. While the Getty isn't my favorite as far as museum collections go, the whole experience is wonderful to show off LA. Sadly it was a bit too chilly that day to eat outside, but we were happy with the... More

what a stunning disappointment! Our usual at least tri-annual wonderful lunch visit was am embarrassing disaster, with every dish a startling combination of battling ingredients: lovely silken burrata paired with vibrant salsa verde, each individually fine but together a taste defeat. Lovely raw himachi totally blighted by a hummus base. A bland onion gratinee accompanied by strangely treated potato (?)... More

I went to this restaurant several years ago and it was amazing. My friend is a Docent so we thought it might be a good choice for our friend's birthday lunch. There were 5 of us with a reservation at 12:45 pm. We were early and were seated immediately albeit not by the window as requested. I am going to... More

The whole centre is exceptional and the restaurant is no exception. The atmosphere is bright with lots of windows, very spacious. The cafeteria style service is organized the selection of food is super, cash out easy, and the food delicious.

We went two couples for dinner on Saturday night. The room is lovely and the view is delightful. (The Getty Center fine dining restaurant is one floor above the cafeteria.) The very nice waitress took our drink and wine order after we waited more than ten minutes, as she seemed very busy with a couple of other larger tables. But... More

We were able to have a very nice dining experience in the middle of our Getty Center visit. While not pretentious, the food is very well prepared and unique. I had a great Walla Walla onion gratin, which was super, followed by a risotto, in which the dish had been cooked using only Parmesan! It was an amazingly rich flavor... More
