    Their specialty are the ribs & the lamb. Excellent desserts as well. The banana cream pie is a must. Very hip restaurant and if you are lucky you might spot a celebrity or two

    I had the Macho salad and the roasted chicken. One of the best tasting and perfect chicken dishes I've ever had. Mashed potatoes tasted like they had just made them when I ordered them.

    Jazz, check. Dark steakhouse, check. Do I really need to say more? A classic.

    The best prime rib in LA (better than Lawry's). If you're feeling dessert go for the banana cream pie!

    Curb Your Enthusiasm Location. In the episode "The Interior Decorator" Jeff, Larry and Diane Keaton are supposed to meet for lunch here. Larry is late and when he arrives Diane has already left.

    The famous prime rib French dip sandwich is delicious. Get both the au jus and the horseradish cream sauce for dipping.

    Gary Downie · August 30, 2013
  • Will K.

    Get the dip duo, shrimp cocktail and poke to start. Their Caesar Salad has cornbread croutons! Awesome! I liked their enchiladas and trip tip combo. All of their desserts were good too!

    Will Kivinski · August 28, 2013

    Happy Tantara Pino is on the wine list. Pairs nicely with their tuna poke starter (which is a generous portion). Yum.

    The cornbread is absolutely delicious. We ordered the beef rib with coleslaw and French fries with the classic Ceaser salad with chicken and artichokes. Great ambience and a fantastic wait staff!

    Everything is amazing, per the usual at Hillstone restaurants. The Tomato, Beet, & Burrata is a must as a starter or a light entree. Steaks are cooked to perfection. Plus, live jazz nightly!

    They now charge $15 corkage fee - and don't tell you (as they are opening up your wine)... I gave THEM a "tip" of advice on that. Grr.

    You can BYOB with no corkage fee here, but they don't advertise it. Don't upset the wonderful waiting staff though. Bring a nice bottle, and tip them on it.
