Found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and was positively surprised. It is a bit hidden but then have very cosy little patios and a great atmosphere.
The menu was quite nice, only minus was that the starters did not seemed shareable and as the entrees were quite big.
So we went straight to entrees where I got duck breast with cherries. It was a huge plate with 2 duck breasts and lots of mashed potatoes. And the cherry sauce was great and a perfect match for the glass of PN. They have an ok wine list of wines ny the glasses. Did not see the rest as my companions does not drink wine.
Overall it was a great experience and quite different of what I have tried in LA.

This is a restaurant you want to like. Great Hollywood location, parking, lovely patio, interesting menu. A friend and I dined there for the second time in a few months. It was dreadful. The service was functional but passionless. In describing the soups, so much emphasis was placed on the fact that they were vegan and made without cream, they neglected to mention this mushroom soup was spicy enough to blow your head off. No one noticed or cared when removing my friend's nearly-full plate. The two entrees -- salmon and a nut-encrusted chicken breast were equally poor. Salmon was over-sauced, chicken was tasteless with a sauce that looked like plain cornstarch. Dessert saved the day -- souffle -- but that's because we were hungry and didn't eat most of our dinner. The last time we dined there, the sauce on my entree (chicken picatta in a citrus sauce) was so sweet it was inedible, like someone accidentally drowned it in Karo syrup. Don't waste your time or your money. The saddest part is that it just feels like nobody is minding the store, or cares. No one offered coffee which would have been nice with the souffle.

Went here for dinner with husband and the girls. It's a quaint, pretty courtyard 'village' style restaurant with good fresh and kitchen prepped food, lots of lovely vegetables, and good wine.

The courtyard is quite magical with fairy lights and candles, and they were super kind in putting the heater on being as we had not brought light sweaters with us.

The wine is a little pricey but we went for the cheapest red they had, the CA merlot and it was beautiful (approx $45)

Highly recommend this haven away from all the bright lights and plastic of Hollywood.

It's a relatively small and cozy restaurant in Hollywood. The food is great and the price is quite reasonable. We went for sliced steaks (32$) and Caesar's salad (10$) and were completely satisfied with the food and service. Although the kitchen was about to close no one even tried to refuse our order. The service was also great! I highly recommend the place for dinner.
