Even though this restaurant is more a cocktail lunge, the food that is served is delicious. I had the steak, which was cooked to perfection. The cocktail I had was also well prepared. This restaurant has been around for a while; I think it was...More

The Dresden Room really took me back in time. The decor and the atmosphere, that wonderful jazz and cocktails really made me feel I was in some other era. We had a great evening and if you ask me, this is one of the LA...More

Love the old school intimate elegance of the restaurant. The staff was welcoming and accommodating. The service was very good. Everything was amazing, drinks, appetizers, main course and the desserts. The restaurant was featured in the movie Swingers who featured Vince Vaughn. Funny, the night...More

This place hasn't changed at all in the 15 years I have been going and probably not much since the 1950s when it opened. Great place for dinner and cocktails with live music in the bar as well. Inexpensive parking as well.

The Dresden Room still has the Old Hollywood vibe it displayed in the movie "Swingers". Fortunately, time has not dulled its attraction. A gorgeous stuck in time interior, the song stylings of Mary and Elaine, and some of the best sand dabs in the LA...More

Stopped in with friends after dinner for some live music & drinks. Parking is off street which is its biggest downfall very late at night but The Dresden makes up for it in ambiance. There is a very long time husband & wife team than...More

Food was great, steak was excellent and properly cooked, and the prices were good. Its a classic, slightly worn LA staple that looks rough from the outside, but intimate in, and the big white booths are spacious and cozy. The only downside was the appalling...More
