Restaurant at the Getty Center
Go For Great At The GettyThere's not a more inspired menu, skilled chef, delightful ambiance, or magnificent view in town! We have dined here as a couple, with family, and have brought friends from out of town knowing we can always count on fine cuisine, excellent service and warm hospitality at reasonable prices. The Restaurant at the Getty is an experience you don't want to miss!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMScrumptious n every wayOur birthday lunch celebration at the Getty Restaurant was fabulous!! What a joy to be greeted so very nicely by all staff only to be surpassed by the wonderful, delicious dining experience in a beautiful, panoramic setting. It made an important celebration even more memorable!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGetty Birthday LunchI ate with three friends at the Getty Restaurant for my birthday lunch and we had a very enjoyable time. The waiter was attentive, the food excellent and the view spectacular. We spent several hours enjoying each others company and talking about the exhibits in the museum. It is well worth the price and made my special occasion that much more special.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waitress Christie wasOur waitress Christie was outstanding. It has been a long time since we have had such great service.
The chef did an outstanding job with the Halibut by not putting a sauce on the top, but using the side of the plate for seasonings.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch was great!I gave my mother "Brunch at the Getty" for Mother's Day. Although we did not go on Mother's Day, we did go on a Sunday and had a fabulous brunch. Everything was very fresh and tasty. The restaurant is very nice and we have never been disappointed with our meals there. I definitely recommend the Restaurant at the Getty Center, but one usually needs to make a reservation, especially if you plan to go on a weekend.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch at the GettyA nice setting, good selection of food. The wait person was pleasant,
but obviously not professional. Don't bring the dessert menu while we're in the middle
of our meal and when you say "I'll take the bill whenever you're ready", don't attempt to take it
while I'm still enjoying my lunch and haven't put a credit card into the envelope.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGettyCenter restaurant -work of artOur Getty Center restaurant was lovely. Service was attentive without being overbearing. We ordered 2 appetizers each and felt quite satisfied. They even allowed us to linger over coffee and delicious "small bites" desserts well beyond their closing time! The dishes (a special soup - potato puree with touches of crab and albacore tataki) were well prepared and beautifully presented. They were appetizers but - especially the soup - servings were more than I would have expected from the price and appetizer designation. The tables are far enough apart so that you aren't overwhelmed with other tables' noise and the view of the mountains is spectacular. The restaurant adds a special touch to a day at the Getty Center.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA Destination RestaurantRestaurant at the Getty Center really offers so much: excellent, well prepared food, helpful, considerate service, an overall delightful ambiance with a great view and not too noisy. We also appreciate not having tables too close so that we can enjoy our conversation privately. AND...You are able to spend time at the Getty before and after you've dined. WOW!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Restaurant at GettyEverything about this experience was wonderful. We ate prior to going to see the exhibits and it was first rate... It got the entire experience off to a great start.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMCLASSY RESTAURANTThe Getty is a great place to share with visiting relatives, and the upscale restaurant is in keeping with the aesthetics of the locale.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food & service addingExcellent food & service adding a BIG plus to our Getty experience. We will recommend to family and all of our friends.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood WorkWanted to have dinner before an evening event but typical LA traffic only gave us 30 or so minutes. Manager got us salads and cheese board, all extremely tasty by the way, and our drinks so we could at least casually snack before a great night of music.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIf only I didn't live so far away .I live in NC now, but used to live in Santa Barbara, which made a day trip to the Getty possible. Dining at the restaurant made each special visit even more marvelous - the icing on the cake!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best restaurantOne of the best restaurant meals I've had in the past several years. Fresh, tasty, nicely sized, nicely served.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Place, Amazing FoodDo not let the tram ride discourage you. This place is amazing and totally worth visiting even if you did not spend the day at the Getty museum checking out exhibits. The food is among the best I've ever had and the views create an ambiance that's hard to match. The service was perfect. They space out courses so you don't feel rushed, you can enjoy your food and have a wonderful experience. It's not a cheap place but worth every penny.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing viewWhat a spectacular location we came here for lunch on Saturday and had reservations for 12:00pm seated immediately although we did asked for a window seating but it was not available. The service was truly amazing the staff was so attentive and friendly. There was four in our party we all ordered something different and found the food quite tasty. Love the bread baskets that kept coming around.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a nice lunch at theWe had a nice lunch at the museum restaurant, Foods are all locally grown. Very fresh and definitely healthy. Ambience on the top of a hill is very pleasant. After lunch, a few hours at the museum and the garden is enjoyable and relaxing.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFor an elegant luncheonThe Restaurant at the Getty Center has beautiful views in most directions, with many floor-to-ceiling glass windows (ask for a table at a window; there are tables in the middle of the room, as well). The food is well-prepared, and the service is attentive and professional. Good selection of wines (including several offered by the glass), beers and mixed drinks. The noise level is low enough so that conversation is easy, without yelling. Luncheon is expensive.
The magnificent Getty Museum is situated on top of a mountain, so you must arrive at the parking area at least 30 minutes before your restaurant reservation, so you have time to find a parking space and take the scenic tram ride from the parking area to the museum & restaurant.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place!Had a wonderful lunch at this place! The view, the food and the service first class!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Day for LunchSpent the day at The Getty enjoying a quiet and wonderfully-delicious lunch out on the terrace.

to experience the Restaurant at the Getty.

The wine list is very good and the dessert selection was a real treat for those with a sweet tooth.
Recommended for all occasions but you check it out even if you just hungry and need a moment
before getting back to the Museum.
I recommend making a reservation and suggest trying to get an outdoor seating.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a hitI try to eat at the Restaurant at the Getty Center whenever I go to the museum. It's beautiful, the food is exquisitely prepared, and the service is always fantastic. If you can eat outside, I recommend it: the views are incredible, and there's almost always a pleasant breeze that makes even a hot day very comfortable. I've tried items from all over the menu: salads, entrees appetizers, desserts and I'm always pleased. Without a doubt, this is the best restaurant of any museum eatery I've tried and it's one of my favorite places to eat.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem!Superb! We dined with friends from the Bordeaux region in France and they loved every morsel. It was a great meal, well balanced, a pleasant environment for conversation, and excellent service.

Service is wonderful. Allow at least 15 minutes to park and take the tram up to the restaurant. Definitely a place to go when you have time for leisurely eating and want an elegant restaurant and beautiful view.
The day we were there, it was windy and a bit chilly in the shade. When the weather warms up, it has a beautiful outdoor space, with a view to the ocean. Great place for a party or wedding.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter enjoying the architectureAfter enjoying the architecture and art it was lovely to have a proper restaurant where we spent a couple of hours dining with friends4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there on a day whenWe were there on a day when fog permeated the museum so there was no view, but it was very enjoyable nonetheless.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is a treat to have a mealIt is a treat to have a meal at this terrific restaurant.

The rest of the food was very good but not exceptional. The service was very good and the wine list adequate if limited. For the price paid and the exceptional views (and convenience of the restaurant while visiting the museum), this is a good value for the price paid.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about our experienceEverything about our experience was fantastic.

This is our third visit which began when they were both 10. This visit they celebrated their 18th with the graciousness of the staff at The Restaurant. The food was out of this world and as my granddaughter said, "Those were the best scallops I have ever eaten." The food is artfully prepared and the service and ambiance are exquisite!
