A word from Taylor's Prime Steak House
Taylor's rekindles memories of steakhouses in the old days with its low prices and Naugahyde booths. The menu offers classic fare and the steaks, such as the culotte, are cooked to perfection.

Diner Reviews
  • "Love Taylor's. Took a friend there it was her first time and she loved it."
    Dined on 6/13/2012
  • "Taylor's is always good. Been coming for over 30 years and each meal is exceptional. Menu choices vary each day, steaks are great! A great place to eat and drink, and a great value!"
    Dined on 6/12/2012
  • "I've been eating here for more than 20 years. I am a NY transplant and love this wonderful place. My one complaint in all of these years was with my recent visit: I ordered "Pan Fried Steak" the description said:Cut from the filet mignon and sauteed" However, it turned out to be 'Chicken Fried Steak' which I am very familiar with and which I do not ever order. It was fine, I ate it, but just the thought of breading a steak and covering it with cream sauce is alien to me. The menu description was incorrect."

  • "I was introduced to Taylor's almost 25 years ago by an old movie producer friend. The place dripped old school LA ambience, and the food was great. I've been back a couple times since when in LA, and went again the other night to celebrate a nephew's graduation. Have to say that the bloom is off the rose. The food was okay, if a notch down from what I remember. The service was rushed, and the serving kept pushing an expensive special. Pace was off too, with the steaks coming out even before we'd finished our salads. We'll give Taylor's another try in the future, but they need to step up their game if they hope to retain the reputation as an LA classic."

  • "Some of the most tender Prime Rib we have ever eaten. This place is great. If you like going to a steak house occasionally you will love this restaurant. Try the crab cakes too. They are full of crab and delicious."

  • "This restaurant is truly a hidden gem. If you are looking for a great steak in the L.A. area with an old-fashioned atmosphere, this is the place for you. Frank Sinatra even ate here back in the day. I had the culotte steak, cooked perfectly, a green salad, and a baked potato. Waitress was the perfect mix of no-nonsense and friendly. Frank would have approved. The only real low point was the chocolate cake but I ordered poorly so that's on me. One of the other diners got bread pudding and that was outstanding."

  • "Old school dining at it's best. They know how to make a good martini and cook a steak properly. Wine list won't disappoint"

  • "I have been going to Taylor's for about 25 years! I have always loved it! It's been a great place to go with family and friends to enjoy great food and a reasonable price! The last couple of times we have gone, something has drastically changed in the quality of the food! The steaks have been "tasteless and mealy" and the salad dressing is completely watered down! Both our salads! One was Blue Cheese and the other Ranch. Totally flavorless! We couldn't believe it? I don't know if Taylor's is under new management, but something has DEFINITELY changed there! So sad! I can't believe I'm saying this, but I don't think we will be going back! And, that sort of breaks my heart after all these years!"

  • "Our first visit to Taylor's. We came to visit our daughter at college and wanted to treat her and her roomie to a nice steak dinner. The other Open Table reviews were very good and it was a short drive from campus, so I made the reservation on my iPhone. Great choice! Parking in their private lot next door with a very nice valet; Excellent service-thanks to our waiter! The food actually came quickly for it was a busy, busy night (Sunday!) So that was a pleasant surprise. Everything we ordered was great; one of us had halibut. That was REALLY good. We will come back again next time we're in LA."

  • "One of my favorite restaurants in LA. Originally from St.Louis, I grew up on great steaks at great steakhouses- The Flaming Pit and Henry the VIII's. So I KNOW great steaks. I find Taylor's are consistently good- especially the cullotes and their rib eyes. The service is welcoming and pleasant. Plus the classic, dark, midwestern steakhouse interior decor- booth seating and wood paneling, crisp white table cloths and napkins, all remind me of 'home'"

  • "Outstanding classic steak house! Try the onion rings and the bone-in rib eye, both excellent"
    Dined on 4/14/2012
  • "It's always a pleasure to dine here. The food and service are old fashioned friendly and prompt. When other fail Taylor's keeps marching on. It was a full Saturday night and a great evening was had by all!"
    Dined on 4/14/2012
  • "We haven't visited Taylor's for a while but we are so glad we went back last Sunday. The cocktails were expertly made, service super friendly and the bone-in ribeye steaks we both ordered were the bomb. Aged perfectly, juicy and tender with a subtle smoky flavor. Can't say I've enjoyed a steak as much in years. Went perfectly with the 2006 Bedrock Syrah we brought along with us ($12 reasonable corkage)."

  • "Consistently excellent. They handled our multiple wine dinner beautifully."
    Dined on 3/30/2012
  • "The Hostesses start the journey off with genuine warmth; the Bar Staff hits the mark on the best Chopin Martini's in town; I want the Serving Staff serving me at all Restaurants; the Steaks/Culottes are sweet! Cheers also to a super Valet Staff! Not an SC Fan but this is definitely Trojan country."

  • "My Parent came in from out of town and wanted our traditional Friday Night Steak and we found Taylor on a recommendation from a coworker. What a find, small little place with an old school steakhouse flair. Food was really good and priced very fair. I had the Culotte and it was super thick and beautifully cooked. Great corkage fee as well brought our on wine and it was only 12 bucks. Highly recommend for a good steak and traditional family night out."

  • "High quality with good service. They know how to make a martini!"

  • "I have been here several times, with just one person and with groups. It is always a pleasure and I have never been dissapointed. This is a classic, good food, good service, old boy's club atmosphere with large booths, and best of all, old prices!!!"
    Dined on 3/21/2012
  • "I was reticent to write this review as I have eaten here twice and had two totally different experiences. The first time was wonderful! Great steaks and sides, amazing drinks and great atmosphere. The second time was as if I were in a different establishment. We had to send our nasty drinks back and went with wine to be safe. The steaks were tough and sinewy. The service was less than wonderful. I don't really know what to say other than, I will probably not be going back for fear of repeating my second experience. There are too many other good restaurants in LA."
    Dined on 3/18/2012
  • "I liked this place. It's an old style steakhouse which was just what I was looking for. Had a great piece of Prime Rib with all the trappings and didn't have to pay exorbitant prices to get it. The service was wonderful too. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 3/16/2012

  • "My son and I look for great "boys night out" places. We have sensed a decline at Morton's which has been our consistent favorite for steaks. I had not been to Taylor's in years, but remembered it as being excellent. They did not disappoint. The Roast Beef was perfect. Service excellent. Corkage only $ 12.00, we had a superb 1979 Ch. Trotanoy. Sides excellent. Over-all a great dining experience. Even the parking attendant was excellent and only $ 3.50 parking charge. We will be back soon."
    Dined on 2/28/2012
  • "This place has really gone downhill. After years of enjoyment, I will not return again. Old time reliable staff are gone. Steak, ordered medium, came browned through and had to be sent back. Waited 15 minutes for new steak, meantime my companion had finished her meal. Kids at nearby table playing video games, with sirens blaring. Staff did not say a word. VERY disapointed."
    Dined on 2/26/2012
  • "Everything was great except the mixed drinks, they need to learn how to mix what is requested and actually add alcohol. Other than that, the dinner was yummy and we'd come back and order wine :)"
    Dined on 2/25/2012
  • "Retro old school steak house -- 3 different kinds of out of this world beef dip sandwiches; a little musty when you first step in and some of the tables are very dark but the service is attentive and courtly and the food is great!"

  • "My husband and I have loved Taylor's for years. We drive close to an hour to get there and it has always been worth it. Last night, however, was a very different story and will probably have us delete this restaurant from our favorites list. It was our anniversary and I let the restaurant know but nothing was said or done. We ordered French Martinis and received some odd concoction with bourbon. The A/C blew nonstop on us all evening. A waiter not affiliated with our table moved us to another and it was worse. After ordering a glass of white wine, which tasted like water, our waitress showed up with another glass saying the first one was only a partial and it had needed chilling. Huh? I think an ice cube was in the first. Bad evening"
