A word from 96th Street Bistro at Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel
Many years ago, before the airport came to be, this area was known as Rancho Sausal Redondo, part of a large Mexican land grant. The land on which the hotel now sits was eventually leased to tenant farmers who grew wheat, barley and beans. In recognition of the heritage of this land, we present to you the 96th Steet Bistro, named after this "dry farming' site on Airport and 96th Street. The 96th Street Bistro features only California cuisine which is a reflection of the diversity and ingenuity of the people of California with a fusion of food from all over the world. But with a twist of local ingredients. With over half of the entire nation's fruits and vegetables grown in California, we decided we had all the ingredients we needed right in our backyard. Committed to serving only the freshest ingredients provided by local farmers and ranchers, the 96th Street Bistro promises bold and imaginative dishes, so you can be sure you're enjoying extraordinary California cuisine.

    96th Street Bistro is a great place for casual dining or special occasions. The lack of check marks just means we didn't try anything but an Easter dinner. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't an off-menu list of specials for a holiday as there was on Christmas Day, but the three of us found plenty to enjoy. One person said the French onion soup was the best she had ever tasted. My Cobb salad was fairly predictable, but with dietary restrictions, that was exactly what I needed. Ingredients were fresh and tasty, and the dressing complemented the greens and other additions perfectly. We split a shrimp flatbread, which made it a great appetizer -- nicely peppery, so beware if you prefer your food on the bland side.

    We enjoyed a pleasant New Year’s Eve dinner on our second visit here in five months. The dishes are creative, like the layered tomato and mozzarella appetizer. The wait staff is attentive and patient. It is my favorite restaurant near LAX as the food is much better than you would expect at a hotel near a major airport.

    We had a long layover at LAX and wanted to escape the monotony of another USA airport and found 96th Street Bistro on OpenTable. The food variety was good and the quality was surprisingly good for an airport hotel. This will definitely be a spot on our list when transiting at LAX.

    We met our relative who had a 4 hour layover before he had to go back to his new home in Australia. The traffic from Ventura was gruesome! We made it but was late. Food was awesome. Lamb shank,Shortribs and Flat iron steak all were great! We had dessert as well and rushed back to LAX with plenty of time Our server Ivan was great. Hotel gave free parking. It worked out fine. Found reviews on Yelp for airport close places to eat that helped my decision.

    Was there for a business diner and it was overall a very good experience. We got a chance to talk and eat and were not interrupted by the servers. It was not crowded, we were not rushed and my guest felt special and appreciated. Close to the airport and the bar was excellent as a starter before our meal. Very good experience.

    The food was actually quite good, particularly the salads and the flatbreads. My biggest problem was that there was a large group in the restaurant who were there for some type of sales promotion meeting complete with speaker and flip charts. Why this wouldn't have been held in one of the hotel's meeting rooms is a complete mystery to me. It definitely ruined the "ambience" of the restaurant for that evening.

    At the 96th Street Bistro one can look forward to inspired fusion cuisine. I enjoyed the grilled Mahi-Mahi kebabs with grilled vegetables. The peach parfait with mascarpone featured grilled peaches provided a fine finish to an excellent meal. Our server, Fermin, provided attentive service and patiently answered all our questions regarding the menu. I will return the next time I stay at LAX before a flight home.

    For people needing a good restaurant near LAX, 96th Street Bistro is a good choice. Friday night had a female singer, who added to the experience. I would not choose this restaurant, unless you already needed to be in the LAX area. There are too many other good places within a 20 minute drive.

    We went to dinner for our anniversary. It's where we had our rehearsal dinner, which was just about perfect. The anniversary dinner did not disappoint, either. The staff works hard to get everything right and the food is quite good. Probably the best fine dining in Westchester.

    This is in a hotel right by the airport. We sat in the bar area on the couch; table was really low and crowded when we got our food. Our server had no idea how to do the Open Table reservation thing. We only ate here because we were starving. It was a typical hotel restaurant.

    I've eaten here a few times before as I always stay at the Renaissance when I am in town on business. Service tonight was slow as the restaurant got a rush all at one time. I ordered the "prime" ribeye entree and the steak was definately not prime grade meat as asked; it was tough, chewy, and tasted like choice grade. The entree had excellent flavor as did the soup appetizer. The chef always seasons his food very well.

    It was an OK brunch, nothing spectacular. The breads and sweet rolls were dry and no way to warm them up. We were some of the first people there, so everything should have been very fresh. The only thing the wait staff did was bring the coffe, orange juice, and the bill. I know it was a buffet, but there was no concern about if we had concerns or questions. We had dinner there the night before the that food and service was great.

    We greatly enjoyed the food here. Our party of ten (which was, to our pleasant surprise, seated in a private and secluded nook) ordered all over the menu, and everyone raved about their items. My only complaint was that the service was spotty and inattentive. Our server was courteous, but just let wine and water glasses sit empty, didn't check on food status, etc. Otherwise, it was a great meal and I would definitely go back.

    The hostess were welcoming and exceptional if only they could've been the waitresses. The waiter was totally rude, we were secluded from the other side of the restaurant which had the majority of the people there. We weren't waited on until 15 min after we sat down. The menu was unappealing and overly priced. After ordering drinks, we had to wait 20 min later just to order an appetizer and by that time I was already figuring out what restaurant we would go to next. For a first experience it was horrible.

    Excellent find in a mall setting. Bar was active and mixologists were well informed. The the menu was provocative, with a number of reasonably healthy and yet creative appetizers and entrees. Portions were appropriately sized and the desert menu was enticing.
