What can you say about a perfect experience at a location that never disappoints? The Chase "Insider Experiences" night brought forth the best of the bar, apps, 3 mains and a dessert to die for. Wine pairings were perfect.

Although expensive, it's the best fine dining in all southern california in my opinion! I don't really like raw seafood or shell fish other than shrimp and they will accommodate. Service is top notch with great attention to detail.

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. The atmosphere is dark and mysterious in a good way. The silverware and plates enhance the ambience. Waiters and waitresses appear and disappear with ease. This is some of the best seafood I have ever had. Perfect...More

Jonathan Gold Top #1 restaurant? I figured it would be the most amazing meal I've ever had. Long story short: it wasn't. But was it good? Yes. Was it worth the price? Probably all things considering but it's just hard to judge fairly when there...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

I guess it depends how you want to splurge. This place is pricey and high quality, so for many people, it's a treat saved for dinner. When I was on vacation there in Sept, having lunch fit best in my schedule, and I liked... More
