    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!

    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!

    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!

    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

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

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

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

    Not ideal for vegetarians, unlike siblings Houston's, Hillstone, and Gulfstream which have their infamous veggie burgers. When I went they only offered a veggie plate (made of side portions).

    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.

    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.

    The mac and cheese is solid, and the two enchilada plate is a rockin deal. Throw in live music on sunday and you've got a quality night!

    Must try the macho salad. Fresh, surprising and filling. I always try to recreate it at home. It's that good.

    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.
