Diner Reviews
  • "This could have easily gone the wrong way. We made anniversary reservations that morning & specifically asked for seats next to each other by a window so we could see July 4th fireworks. Upon arriving, we were told those seats were not available & that requests are not guaranteed. In such instances, the restaurant should call & let you know. To compound it, they tried to seat us across from each other right next to a table w/ 2 loud children. We refused & were ready to leave when they found a better table where we could sit side-by-side. From then, everything went well. We were given complimentary anniversary Prosecco, the service was excellent (but could have filled water more often), the food was wonderful, and the view spectacular."

  • "We were seated timely; the waiter appeared immediately and was knowledgable and friendly; our drinks were brought quickly; our main course arrived right after we'd finished our salads; and the food was delicious. We specifically asked for a quiet table as one of our party was hard of hearing. As it turned out, any table would have been fine as the noise level is quite low; we could all speak in a normal tone and be heard perfectly. We decided that evening that West was the place we would meet from now on. Well done, West! "

  • "Too simple of a menu. Need to expand. Tomato soup was too salty. Lobster quesadillas - can't taste lobster as it is over powered by the other ingredients. Nice view but probably will not return. "

  • "Brunch was wonderful, view unparalled. Our waitperson was very personable and attentive. I do think $58/person is a bit high, but perhaps some of the cost is the view."

  • "The food was terrible - salad of combination of ingredients that didn't work, bland halibut, tasteless caesar salad, indifferent service, but still a great view. Wouldn't ever go back - used to be a great restaurant - really has gone downhill."

  • "17 floors up gave us a nice view. Food was very good. We had the scallops. Staying at this hotel does not give you any other options for meals unless you want to retrieve your car and fight the freeway traffic. But we were pleasantly surprised how nice our experience truly was."

  • "In the last year, this restaurant has gone from "meh" to excellent. They have changed their dinner menu for the better, bringing quite excellently cooked meals to the area. I hope they revised their whole brunch situation too since it used to be kind of half-assed. But the weekday dinner I had there was really excellent. I was pleased that I brought a large group there. The wine list is very well put-together too. I love the comfortable booths and the tables near the windows. Also, the bartenders always seem to make a great cocktail. "

  • "I was charged with the task of finding an Easter Brunch for our family of 6...4 kids that all had different tastes. And I didn't want one of those special "Easter Brunch" buffets that cost an arm and a leg. I have had business breakfasts and lunches at the West in Hotel Angeleno, but when I saw the brunch menu on Open Table, I was in. It really did not disappoint. My wife loved the Eggs Benedict, the kids had waffles and pancakes, and I had an egg white omlette. The service was excellent, and the food was great. But the view really stole the show. A great experience and free parking to boot! "

  • "What a great time. Awesome to find a quinoa veggie burger that doesn't completely fall apart! And tasty too. Hotel manager Scott Gordon stopping by our table was the icing on the cake!"

  • "The hotel view is definitely worth the hype. A treat in the Bel-Air neighborhood. I got the pancakes, scrambled eggs and apple sausage. Everything was great."

  • "If you're in a hurry, this is definitely not the place to go. The place was empty for our 11 a.m. reservation, and they took so long to get their act together that we had to have them box it up for take out before they even served it. My $ 11 tip was totally undeserved."

  • "We dined here with friends based upon a few good Yelp reviews I had read, and because the location was right. The views were definitely impressive. My husband's salmon was outstanding, our friend's Barramundi was heavenly. The scallops in our appetizer were great, but the risotto under them was under cooked. I made the mistake of ordering the gnocci (I admit to being entranced by the name, Ruby and Amethyst or something like that!) Anyway, I am no gnocci expert but this just tasted like mushy small potatoes in a very heavy cheese sauce. The service was good, the wine was excellent and it was a very enjoyable evening for the most part. But if I were trying to impress someone with an outstanding place, I would not take them here."

  • "We were meeting with friends from Altadena and Long Beach, and we were staying in Westwood. West was a super find. Easy for all of us to get to with very good food and that sensational view. The place was almost empty for lunch. People, you are missing out!"

  • "The Hotel Angeleno has always been a great location, BUT with all the freeway and road construction in the Sepulveda Pass, it has been way less than convenient to go there over the past year or two, BUT after "Jamzilla" was finally over, I decided that my wife and I would try it again, so we invited another couple and it was BETTER THAN EVER!!! The wine choices include some incredible finds from very local wineries and they also make killer cocktails!!!! there is quite a selection of whiskies, including some very fine single malt scotch -- beyond just Glenlivet, which every Bar has (and should have)... The food was OUTSTANDING!!!! I had the Ribeye Steak, which was sublime perfection!!!! Dessert was awesome carrot cake."

  • "This is in regards to the special Valentine's Day 4 course meal. Food was great, however the service was *very* slow. Normally on a night like Valentines, I'd think that maybe the kitchen would be overwhelmed, but while the restaurant was mostly full, it definitely wasn't *packed* (lots of empty tables that I could see) so it would be curious if that were that case. However the wait staff seemed cognizant of this fact and were generous with bread and complimentary champagne. Overall a good meal and pleasant dining experience."

  • "Our food was gorgeous and delicious. The Crab Louie salad and panacotta, yum! Definitely go for the food. Service was strange. The person was pleasant but not consistent and didn't seem to want to be there. Also, the air conditioning blows on you very strong to counter act the sun coming through the windows. Would be great if they could find the right balance."

  • "We ordered a bunch of starters, as none of the main courses jumped out. The ricotta fritter with root vegetables and some sort of maple sauce was outstanding. Fritter is really a misnomer, and did not describe the dish, but it was the best of the four we ordered. The restaurant is on the 17th floor of the old Sunset Holiday Inn (now called Hotel Angelino). Great views, although avoid it during the 405 shut down."

  • "I had an out of town client reserve a room while we managed an event at the Luxe on Sunset. We set up a follow-up meeting the morning after for breakfast at The West. Thank you to the staff for making her feel welcome, excellent service and food. And, when I left my iPhone case they were kind enough to make it a priority to look for the case with credit cards. They did and called me directly back so an assistant could return. Thank you to Hotel Angeleno. We now have other clients booked for events later this week!"

  • "I went here recently for dinner with a party of four. The food was overall very good and fairly priced for what it was. Two issues I had....one was the service. We had a rather long wait at the table before anyone came to us. Bread did not appear until well into the meal. Out of three courses, the previous plates were never cleared before the new ones came. Secondly the restaurant seems to be having an identity crisis. Overall decor and menu say, high end, classy restaurant. But the hotel seems to be trying to cater also to a bar scene. Young people dressed in either prom attire and business men where all mingling at the bar which had loud house music blaring for an empty dance floor. Luckily we we seated far away."

  • "A very convenient location and a great view. Reasonably priced. Great that their brunch menu is a la carte and not a buffet - much more economical and diet-conscious."

  • "Four of us (my husband and our two adult children) went on a Saturday night and it was about half full. We had a drink in the bar before dinner and the drinks were very good. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. We all had a different dish. The sea bass was really good. Filet was done exactly as requested. Our special requests were happily accommodated. The view was nice and the overall feeling of the place was peaceful. It was a peaceful and relaxing evening, like a little mini-vacation."

The service was fantastic and friendly and pricing is very reasonable. Try the duck three ways, the sausage was amazing. I will definitely make this a regular stop in L.A."

Started with drinks and duo chickpea appetizer in the lounge facing the incredible view. Moved on to dinner with a view - - my game hen with couscous was perfectly cooked and very yummy. Service was attentive and pleasant. I was happy."

  • "This place has improved 300% in the last two years. The menu is exciting and they have a solid wine selection. Even the bar menu has good options if you just want something small. I highly recommend their gnocchi, their pork, and their steak options. Our main server was incredibly professional. The dining room was full of dressed up (not casual) guests and the seats are incredibly comfortable. And yet the management seemed fine letting some bar patrons keep yelling at the football on the TV. At some point they may have to decide if they want this to be a hotel bar/lounge or an upscale restaurant. At this point, it seems to have a slight identity confusion. But all said, it was a wonderful dinner. We will return for sure."
