    The food, our steaks were great and cooked to perfection! The fries were great too, even if we had to renind our server (Britney) that they came with the meal. She messed-up our drink order more than once and we had to send them back to the bar. She must be vey new to serving. Anyway, the view, the fuul moon, the seating and fire pits around the pool, were just outstanding! Additionally, our hostest, Charity, was very, ver accomidating. She had them rearrange some tables/chairs to get us a great table outside with the perfect view of everything that was happening inside and outside. had a very nice conversation with her to and I could tell that she is very professional and service minded. Thanks Charity!

    I went for a friend's birthday and enjoyed amazing food! The 6 ounce filet was delicious and perfectly cooked. Our server, Ella, was very knowledgeable and recommended some excellent appetizers. The spicy tuna tartare had to be my favorite appetizer, it was such a unique dish the way it was presented! The creamed corn is a must-have, I have been craving it ever since I left. The manager was wonderful, she greeted us when we arrived and checked in periodically to make sure we were enjoying everything. Overall, it was a great experience- when the restaurant ended, the nightclub opened up and we were able to enjoy the DJ and club atmosphere without leaving the venue. A+ for Drai's!

    Went there looking for outdoor eating . Unfotunately for all , weather was not so kind . Had indoor meal which was excellent . Little did we know that this was the new Hollywood hotspot . Didn't stay that long . We left after dinner . When we later saw the local commercial on TV . It sure looked like the place to be . Next year on another visit from Europe , we might join this scene . For now our diningexperience was pretty good .

    Drai's doesn't get going until LATE. We arrived for a 7:30P table and were the only patrons there until 8:30P at least. GREAT view from the roof of the W hotel. Menu is not that varied, a few conventional beef/steak choices, a few fish entrées, and about 10 appetizers. So while the food is perfectly decent, you would not go to Drai's for a culinary adventure. But the vibe of the place is fun, built for partying. Rooftop pool, tented pavilions, and clearly once it gets going at night this is a hopping spot for patrons of a certain age (i.e., younger or trying to be) with money to burn. If you came at 8P with 10 people, you'd likely have your pick of tables and the place pretty much to yourself, until the regular crowd rolled in.

    Everything was great but what shocked me the automatic gratuity they add to check. 18.25% is added. While I don't mind, I have to say that it's up to customer to decide what to tip. That being said I know there are lots of folks that get shorted but I thought this was a bit presumptuous. Besides that it's an awesome place!

    The ambiance at Drai's was very romantic for our Valentine's night out. It turns into a night club right after they are finished serving dinner so if you aren't into techno music and crowds you may want to make an early reservation. The food was good but not great. The service was very good and friendly. Overall a great experience for a married couple of 20 years who has been tried every upscale restaurant in the area.

    My wife and I spent our Valentine's here. We were seated immediately. Brian, our server, was friendly and personable. I selected the 18oz Bone-In Ribeye and my wife had the Chilean Sea Bass. The steak was good, but pricier than Mastro's. The sea bass was good, but Crustacean's is better. The drinks are quite pricey, but that's expected for this venue. The ambience and layout is superb. The valet cost $31 with tip and validation, which is ridiculous. Overall, we enjoyed our expensive evening at Drai's.

    Nice place, great service and ambience however I rate restaurants based on quality of food, taste and drai's falls short on great food. When your in a high profile location your food can just be mediocre and you can get away it. I would not comeback here, nothing screams out at me that would make me comeback.

    My party and I loved Drai's, the food was great the service was good, the ambiance was good. the only part I did not like was that the gratuity was included for a party of 4? I work in the restaurant industry and usually gratuity is included for parties of 6 or more. I did ask management and he said that it's included on all tables, but honestly I didn't believe him, and we were very offended by this matter. 3 out 4 liked the food and I don't know if I would go back.

    Called us ahead of our reservation and left a voice message saying we would be losing our spot if we didn't call back to confirm by 5pm - because they were packed with people, and the rain created problems. Luckily checked my voice mail and was able to return the call (had to wait on phone a long time) - told them we had play tickets and really couldn't come later. They said ok. Got to the restaurant, and no one was there! Plenty of seating - even by the time we left there was lots of open tables. Very weird. All young kids running the place - Dinner was over priced - not sure what everyone is excited about with this place

    It was a cold windy night and all they had available was outside seating. I was with a party of two and asked for a table inside and they said they were reserved already- when I left after dinner the tables were still empty. With it being cold outside, our food got pretty cold quick. It is a nice scene for drinks- that's probably all I would get there next time.

Veteran server Fernando made us feel like we were in a beautiful home with his warm, gracious hospitality and friendly manner. Very professional too. The meat dishes were truly outstanding as was the panzanella salad. The music wasn't TOO loud. We had a very relaxing dinner in a beautiful setting.

    I was a little turned off by all of the advertising for Drai's from the time we already made our way to the elevator. Over exposure comes to mind. The advertising for Drai's on the inside of the elevator was cheesy. There were cigarette burns and food stains in many of the pillows where we were seated for dinner.

    I took my brother to drai's hollywood, looking for a special experience as he was visiting LA on such a quick trip. I really got it right this time! drai's is quite a find, with a touch of fine dining in such a beautiful setting. they offer traditional indoor tables or outdoor dining under the nite sky, twelve stories above the quieted bustle of historic hollywood and vine. the food is amaaazing, the menu mostly comprised of steak and fish, but with options for vegetarians and vegans alike. I highly recommend the pepper steak, loup de mer, spicy tuna tartare, and beet salad..afterward, an espresso with banana bread pudding! the staff is calm, classy and unpretentious; the management team devoted and attentive. a 'must return' for me!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/1/2012
    Drai's has an unwelcoming attitude. It has a vibe of "you are not welcome here, because YOU are not important enough." We had to confirm our reservation for 4 with a credit card. We arrived on time at 7:30 and were lead to an inside table with no view. When we asked for a patio table with the view (which is the main reason we chose this restaurant), we were told all those tables were for other reservations. At 7:30 on a Saturday night, there were exactly two other people in the entire restaurant sitting together at one table. It was totally empty. The hostess said she would have to ck with her manager for a view table. We were given a better table, and by the time we left 1 1/2 hours later, the place was still only 1/3 filled.

Tip: Make dinner reservations, then you won't have to deal with the annoying bouncers at the door. Arrive early!

    the only problem with drais is smoking. because they're a club, they allow smoking in the outside dining areas. if you don't want to smell the smoke, you have to request a table inside.

    I was very hesitant to try dinner here, thinking it was more of a club scene, but I was so pleasantly surprised. I had the halibut and it was delicious and my friend had the steak and he just loved it! I can say that the food here was better than many of the well rated and better known restaurants in Los Angeles. Our waiter was excellent: attentive yet not overbearing, he timed the appetizers, drinks and meal perfectly and we really enjoyed the night. Highly recommend this place for food and stay later for drinks and the club. It's a beautiful location and you cant go wrong.

    I thought dinner would be overrated because Drai's is such a trendy hotspot. Dinner was surprisingly excellent. Although we were probably a couple decades older than the crowd that later filled the dance floor, we stayed a good hour after dinner for more cocktails and dancing. It was a very fun night.

    Have to say that I am torn on our experience. The ambiance and service were both top notch but the food was just so not spectacular and over priced that I don't think we would ever go back except maybe for a drink and appetizer at the bar. Drinks are also expensive but maybe for the view and ambiance it would be worth it.
