- Great diningPenguinVIPDined on 9/15/2014Quiet great service,try the hamburger. Classy hotel.Special Features:
- Quality and service went downhillDISAPPOINTEDDined on 9/14/2014Was there on a Sunday buffet brunch. The quality of foods were just not there, the only good thing was they had the omelete station, dim sum were dried, no soy sauce for dipping, pastries were hard and old. The worst was service was not attentive. Had a reservation and had to wait at least 15 mins to get seated. I had to remind the hostest , and she finally got someone to clean the table and sat us down. Once we sat down, no server came back, had to flag down everytime we needed something. $48 for a buffet brunch is not worst it. Please consider go somewhere else if you were to consider this restaurant.Special Features:
- A GemDuchessDebsPicksDined on 8/26/2014I have been going to the Langham property for years and it is an amazing place. I was recently there with a couple of my coworkers as we are contemplating a Sales Meeting at the location. We often take our out of town guests to this local retreat and it is always a hit. We love the Terrace as its price point is reasonable. Although one day I would love to go to the Royce! The tap room is also a MUST SEE bar with scenic views of the property and valley below. You may even get to watch a wedding being performed! Love, love, love!Special Features:
- Excellent as alwaysharlsmitsVIPDined on 8/20/2014Service was excellent as it always is at the Langham hotel restaurants. Food was very good. And dining outside on the patio is relaxing.Special Features:
- GreatserviceDined on 8/20/2014Too many flys outside the patio area,buy service is greatSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- It's the grill.spjolyDined on 8/17/2014It's just like any other grill attached to an amazing hotel. I think they all have them. We had planned on having dinner at the Royce, but it was Sunday night, and the Royce was closed. So, instead of traveling outside the hotel, we walked down to the Terrace. It was good. The service was great since there were maybe six tables being served. But, good is what I can give it. Must say, the chocolate soufflé was well done.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lunch on SaturdayCheyenneDined on 8/2/2014Overall, everything is great. The foods are delicious! The salmon, my favorite. I would love to come again to try more dishes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The Terrace is just okFoodie1Dined on 8/2/2014The Terrace at the Langham is just ok. For a well known place the food was just mediocre. I have better food at lesser known local places. I have had better salads at souplantation! This place is mainly for the vibe at the pool. Nice outdoor setting. Come for drinks and relaxing but eat before you come. Not that great & over priced but it is the Langham.Special Features:
- Standard Hotel FoodYummyTummyDined on 7/28/2014Intersting experience. Hostess thanked us for being on time, which made us ponder if this was really a issue because the restaurant was empty. Servers seemed to have a chip on their shoulder. Food took a while to come out and when it did they brought us the wrong order. Food was standard over priced hotel food nothing to write home about. Don't think we will ever return, their are so many other/better options, maybe this is why it was so empty.Special Features:
- BrunchCowboyVIPDined on 7/27/2014Brunch is geared for the Asian palate. Enjoyed the dim sum theme but thought that selection of "normal" brunch food was limited. Would return but not as often as in the "old days" with the fabulous brunch that was offered. Setting of course is spectacular although for a party of 6 we always seem to be seated in the back by the serving station...."kids section"??? Waiter was great!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 7/27/2014Horrible service. Sloppy attention to details, for example there are flies everywhere if you sit outside (which most people would like to do on a sunny mid morning for brunch). Never going back.
- Love this placeLauriesopasDined on 7/25/2014The Langham is such a grand and beautiful place, and the Terrace is a perfect way to enjoy it even if you have kids. Easy, interesting food, friendly service and a great location.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Filet mignon and gnocci were greatBlueCatDined on 7/20/2014Dessert was lacking, otherwise the meal would have been perfect. They should not have named the mediocre dessert bannanas foster. I have had the real thing at Brennans in New Orleans...there was no comparison.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lovely lunchSadieDined on 7/19/2014We celebrated 4 summer birthdays at a lunch at The Terrace on a Saturday afternoon. It was lovely and relaxed. Salads were great and selections were wonderful. Service was attentive and timely.Special Features:
- Try the main menuOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 7/18/2014The service was wonderful but the food gave me a very upset stomach that lasted through the next day. We ate off the dine la menu and perhaps that was a poor choice on our part. My boyfriend had the soup, snapper, and parfait. The soup was a bit strange, not bad but not really our thing. His other two dishes were very good however. I had the ham and peach starter which was great but the lamb tajine was a bit off. The flavors didn't sit well with me but the chocolate caramel dessert was amazing! The wine and blackberry mojito were delicious as well. I would like to try other items from the menu another time but maybe steer clear of the lamb.Special Features:
- Langham - TerraceMarkIDined on 7/17/2014We selected from the Dine L.A. menu and were happy with our choices. It was great to see that the Langham has kept the Huntington Hotel space as peaceful and graceful as it always has been. Sara was happy with her Tagine and I was happy with my Risotto.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DiningkukeDined on 7/17/2014For the price we are paying, the service can be better, and the food is over seasonedSpecial Features:
- Great food small portion bit slowOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/16/2014The food was really good, the server was very nice and attentive as well as the bus boy who must have filled my water 10 times (it was a hot day) but the service was also pretty slow...food took a while and check took even longer. Beautiful atmosphere! We would go back :)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food and serviceharlsmitsVIPDined on 7/15/2014Staff was very attentive. The food was great, had the grilled peaches and prosciutto as an app, and shared a wonderful chocolate soufflé for dessert. Eating outside in the evening by the pool is very relaxing.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Quiet & Nice for dinnerOlegDined on 7/13/2014The Terrace has been our go-to place for good food when we want a calm environment. It's not a modern set-up and the dining room is definitely on the more traditional luxury dining. Service is good when they're around, but if you come too close to closing time, it may be a little hard to get a server. However, everything was as it's supposed to be and the food was a great mix. The short rib is especially tender and the mahi mahi was also good. Desserts were simple, but tasty the caramel chocolate cake tastes like Ferrero Rocher and the Sweet Potato cheesecake like Thanksgiving.Special Features:
- what a treat!CJsNumber1MomDined on 7/12/2014Went there with girlfriends for lunch at The Terrace, Rigo was our server and he was amazing! Knowledgeable, accommodating, right on the spot when we needed him and overall just a great guy! Thank you Rigo!Special Features:
- Getting betterladmDined on 7/6/2014The food quality and menu has gotten better, especially since last year. I understand the chef has changed. Still not what it was 15 years ago but edible now.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Special place for mother's 83rd BDpapasbajagirlDined on 7/5/2014Everything was wonderful for our lunch. Food was delicious, and the conservatory/sunroom at The Terrace was perfect for our celebration. I had mentioned in my online reservation it was for my mother's 83rd birthday and a beautiful dessert was brought to our table. Having our lunch at the old Huntington was a perfect ending to our three generation day (we had started out at The Huntington Library-another favorite). We will be hard pressed to make our choice next time between The Terrace again or have the afternoon tea.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent service and foodOpenTable Diner Since 2001Dined on 6/30/2014It was nice dining outside and seeing families enjoying the pool. Service was excellent, and we enjoyed our risotto and arctic char.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 6/29/2014Langham has to pay some attention to the Terrace. Service disappeared after taking drink order and again after the appetizer/first course and before delivering the mains. A drink order was mishandled (a basic Cosmo didn't come as such... really? At the Langham?) After the mains, service didn't reappear to offer dessert for another length of time, and had to be flagged after dessert to deliver the bill. Lovely venue; reasonable food... service not as one would expect. Still worthy of another try (but only one unless there is better attentiveness)Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 6/27/2014My wife and I are always pleasantly surprised by the Langham, where we have a strong personal connection. This evening was no exception, loved the braised lamb, the salads and desserts. Bravo.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 6/26/2014The food and service were surprisingly good considering that it is in a hotel. The ambience is good for both indoor and outdoor dining although the latter is overlooking the pool which could be noisy. The menu was interesting, the food was delicious and we would go there again.Special Features:
- Terrible ServiceGoodFoodBadSvcVIPDined on 6/22/2014Sitting outside here is lovely. The brunch is good but there is nothing special about it unless you pay the $50 for the dim sum buffet. That said, nothing about this place is worth the terrible service we had, not to mention being made to wait half an hour for our table when I had a reservation that THEY called me TWICE to confirm. So I will probably never go back.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 6/20/2014I took my Aunt for her birthday. Unbeknownst to me, she and my Uncle attended dances there 60 years ago when they were dating. What a lovely trip down memory lane for her. The vintage photos on the wall were another treat for her. We had a marvelous time.Special Features:
- horribleChoppedbeefDined on 6/15/2014I have been to the Terrace a few times and every time we go there, the service is always inconsistent and lacking the sense of urgency. I understand that this at the Langham and there is sense of elegance and luxury . Our food took over an hour to be delivered and I was almost late to work. We couldn't find our server to pay for the check , Manager came over and asked how everything was and told him " it could have been better". No response from Manager he walked away and the server dropped off check. When we exited the restaurant not 1 person even said Thank you or Goodbye. This will be the last time I will dine at The Terrace maybe I will try the Royce next time.Special Features:
- Beautiful SurroundingsDineOutAlotDined on 6/15/2014Langham Hotel---great setting, Terrace Restaurant patio surrounded by beautiful foliage, pool & elegant people. Food is really secondary, although a very nice buffet at $48 dollars, (a little pricey)----- you can also order from the regular menu, which I appreciate. Service not very attentive but the scenic atmosphere makes up for it. A great place to impress guests.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Foodie worthy brunch!Crazy4BrunchDined on 6/15/2014This was a magnificent experience from the moment we pulled up to the hotel! Highly recommend this brunch!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fathers Day BrunchFathersDay2014Dined on 6/15/2014I was able to get a reservation at 8:45 on Fathers Day. I was very disappointed with the food selection. I thought it would have been amazing but it was very disappointing. I had to hunt down someone to make an omelette and the dim sum wasn't even coming out until 10am. When I made the reservation I had hoped for 11am but it was Fathers Day so I get that part. But why an "abbreviated menu"? They should have made that clear and I could have gone somewhere else for a great brunch. I was very disappointed that this great hotel would be such a let down. I won't be going back.Special Features:
- great foodadavila1212Dined on 6/6/2014amazing service, great food and its beautiful too. We love having lunch and dinner here!Special Features:
- Surprisingly yummyPoseypusherVIPDined on 5/26/2014Before we arrived I perused the menu online and wasn't that jazzed, even contemplating changing our anniversary dinner to another place. As we were seated next to the windows, overlooking the pool, I settled in thinking this wasn't so bad. The wonderful thing about the menu is that items are marked "G", "V", and "D", indicating the offerings are either gluten-free, vegetarian, or dairy-free. I was so glad not to have to ask the waiter for a special menu! I found a wonderful pan-seared salmon, served on a parsnip puree with baby turnips and asparagus - fabulous! Hubby had a wonderful roasted chicken with Mancheco mashed potatoes and spring veggies. We ordered a sweet-potato creme brulee & were surprised by an anniversary slice of cakeSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointed on the outdoor terraceDMacVIPDined on 5/25/2014Table on the outdoor terrace was fairly noisy until 8pm as it overlooks the pool area. Food quality was satisfactory, but I was disappointed with service. My drink was not refilled (lemonade), nor our water, despite nearly 2 hours there, and our main courses were brought to the table whilst we still had appetizer dishes there - the waiter asked us to move our own plates out of the way - totaly unprofessional and "non etiquette" for a hotel of this caliber. I made the point to the manager who did apologize, but did nothing to compensate eg reduced bill would have been nice. Disappointing, we expected better.
- DelightfulSandyoDined on 5/25/2014A memorable positive experience with great service and wonderful shaded outdoor dining. Not extravagant but simple and ample enough for the price...given it's location and elegant hotel surroundings/grounds! Food well-prepared and displayed!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very DisappointedDisappointedDined on 5/25/2014This past weekend, I brought my aunts to the Terrace for one of their birthdays. I was very disappointed and unhappy with our experience. While the food was good, the service was unacceptable. First, the nakpin in our bread basket was dirty with crusted food on it. Then my aunt's fork was also dirty. Next, my aunt ordered shrimp and gritts (watery), but the waiter did not bring a spoon. My aunt ordered coffee, but the waiter did not bring any creamer. By the time he brought the creamer, her coffee was cold. The terrible service ruined what was supposed to be a nice, relaxing birthday brunch. In the end, we complained to the hostess. She appologized, but that was all. For such a hotel, this experience was extremely disappointing.

- Food service needs improvementelliotsVIPDined on 5/11/2014The food service was VERY slow on Sunday night, May 11. We waited almost an hour before our main course arrived at our Table. When inquired of the Waiter, who seemed to be doing his best, he indicated that things were really backed up in the kitchen. It did not seem overly busy that night so could not figure out why it was so slow. The food was average, so a disappointing evening, as it is a lovely spot to eat, but the Hotel should do a better job than this. I also saw two other tables complaining about things as well right around me.Special Features:
