Outrageously expensive drinks. The 4 of us were charged $40 ea for a Nolet Gin Martini. We were $160 lighter and hadn't even ordered anything to eat. No doubt, it's a nice place but who wants bills like that?!

I have dined, and stayed at the Chateau more times then I can count, so trust me with what I leave below.

Service is ALWAYS insanely slow. Waiters are always unfriendly and only concerned if you are a celeb or not. Since i only dine here if i am staying here, we are seated at the guest tables. So even then, the waiters give you zero respect.

That said. The food is always good, when it arrives. Great atmosphere, and iconic.

Do us all a favor, fire your restaurant’s middle management and teach the staff how to serve patrons who are spending thousands of dollars a night to eat and sleep at your property.

It’s been a couple of years since we were there, but from what we remembered of importance was that they had and helpful, friendly, professional staff. Very magical atmosphere, decor is lovely. Excellent array of food options. It’s definitely a destination dining recommendation.

Excellent experience in an iconic restaurant in Los Angeles. Service is very attentive and very friendly, the food was much better than it had been previously, and the "old Hollywood" glam cannot be beat. Must on a Los Angeles itinerary

The ambiance can't be beat. This place is an iconic gem, for sure. Our server (Kat) was outstanding. Our meal was overpriced, the food was OK, but you're in this beautiful place and that is what you're paying for.

Almost impossible to get reservations if you're not staying there. Call the day before or the day of to see if anything is available. Restaurant is primarily outside in a large covered patio. Very much a clientele of the beautiful and powerful. Good food, very good service.

I continue to love the restaurant at the Chateau Marmont, especially for breakfast when the garden patio is just a wonderful place to be. My favorite thing about CM is the service. To many who are used to rushed brunches and lines out the door it might feel slow, but it's designed to be like that. It's relaxed. It allows you to have a proper conversation with a friend without having the bill being thrown in your face 3 minutes after you've finished eating. It's breakfast/brunch as it should be. I understand why people come here often on the weekends. It's a wonderful little sanctuary where one can catch up with good friends or simply do some thinking while having a meal. Sure the prices are a bit high but overall it is well worth it. I would rather pay a little bit more to have a great experience than a bit less to be rushed out of the door by 3 women with strollers talking about their kids pre-preschool and staff who can't be bothered to be there.

Great vibes to just get-together and talk with friends you haven’t seen in awhile. Service was slow, attention to detail isn’t there. Water was never refilled, I had to ask every time, table was wobbly, there was a chip in my double rocks glass I had to send it back( they charged my for both drinks), the second waiter forgot our entire order. The runner (might have been new) kept dropping us food we didn’t order. If we weren’t super into our conversation, and the atmosphere wasn’t so warm I would have rated this differently. Our initial waiter Phil really made up for it though he took my critiques and built off of it instead of going back and forth, at the end we left happy but the staff needs more training or maybe they just need to pay attention.

Hard to beat history and ambiance of this place. Food was very well done too: interesting menu options like ricotta toast with lavender honey. Straight-up hamburger was excellent - one of the best I've ever had. Service was on it. Patio is a little oasis in the city.

Absolutely beautiful restaurant inside the Chateau Marmont hotel. The entrance was a little difficult to find but beyond that - the seating is located inside a garden-like atmosphere next to the famed Chateau lobby. It was one of the most beautiful breakfasts I've ever had. Worth every penny. And side note - the eggs were the best I've eaten. And they were just scrambled eggs! But somehow they were magic.

We were greeted by a lovely hostess and escorted to the patio and met Jose, our server. Quick, friendly staff, food beautifully prepared. Definitely if you're in LA, you have to make a reservation for the Marmont experience, very old Hollywood. We came for the history and weren't disappointed. Attracts a celebrity clientele so no photos allowed, although they did take one for us away from the tables.

Outstanding brunch. Wait staff friendly. The surroundings outside were pleasant. The issue is you are a slave to the noise levels of other patrons and sometimes distracting to your own enjoyment. Tough to avoid in the setting.

The ambiance of the restaurant is what truly makes this place unique. You get a home feeling of old Hollywood. Service is moderate, nothing against Hispanics but they have hired a lot of them and at times it was difficult to understand them when ordering or interacting with the staff. Overall the food was very good, but not the best I have had. Best for a casual lunch or dinner out with friends but certainly not a place to go if you want good friends. It's mainly about the environment and being in the Chateau.
