Simple Asian food but very flavorful. Service was attentive but not overbearing.

Attractive/hip spot, friendly service, but one of the WORST values I've ever had in a restaurant!
Small-ish portions of food no better than what could find at Panda Express -- at 3x the price.
(And not one item on the menu that you haven't seen at any run-of-the-mill Chinese restaurant -- certainly nothing uniquely from Macau...)

We were there early so not many diners were there. It looks more like a night/hot spot.
the food was so tasty, but it was all pretty much deep fried. but it was good.
There are other restaurants that I like better in that area. I had a Groupon, so I went.

Unclear what l would recommend this place for. Likely an ok venue for parties, depending on the bar passing food you agree on. Walnut prawns ok, but salt and pepper lobster a rip-off at 66 something for a smallish half lobster deep fried with too much salt. Steak completely inedible at near 30 for small cubes of meat (in an unrecognizable indistinguishable brown mucky sauce) dish. Scene dead unless a party. Sitting in a bar area with paper napkins for expensive mediocre food, no way again. Kids working there sweet, but not pros. Bar quality vibe with Mr. Chow prices. Not even at a 2 for one price. Sorry.

We went for a couple of Chinese/Portugese dishes that were recommended on Yelp & looked great on their online menu. We we arrived, those 2 particular items were no longer on the menu due to a chef change. We ordered a couple of other dishes that were not the "fusion-style" food we'd gone there for. Our waiter was really nice. We were the ONLY one in the restaurant for the majority of our dinner meal. Frankly you could get this quality of food most places for significantly less money.

They were consolidating menus and staff from two different restaurants. However, they shouldn't use that as an excuse for poor service. Hostess not friendly. Drinks not prepared as asked (martini with olives was ordered, martini with lemon wedge and olive juice added was served----they didn't have olives.) No wine options other than a glass of a red blend. All menu options not available as "the guy that cooks that ain't working". Definitely not giving them a second chance.

Yes, you are greeted by some good looking people in the beginning - then everything heads south very very quickly.

Food was meh, service was beyond horrible - one of the most unfriendly people, why did she decide to wait on tables? And cricket cricket @ 7:30pm on a Saturday??

And the old fashioned I ordered tasted like fruit juice with bad alcohol.
I won't return to this place!

We got there on the early side, around 7pm, and it seems like a place for a bit later...its a very sexy place, nice décor and nice indoor and outdoor areas to eat, drink and hang out. The food, despite the small manu, everything was delicious! The Ahi tuna appetizer was xlnt! and the salmon entrée was delicious and the Chinese chicken salad had fresh warm pieces of chicken in it! Drinks were good as well. Service was very friendly and accommodating.

Upon arrival for our 6:30 reservation on Sunday night , we were told that there was no room and the wait would be an hour or more. There was no offer of compensation or reparation . I have rarely encountered such poor customer service. Of course, we left , and will not return

I heard about this place from a friend, and I was eager to try it out on my birthday, great food great music, and the overall experience was a great one, I will forsure tell a friend to tell a friend about this hidden gem right in the heart of Hollywood.

In all my years of eating, in all the places I have eaten, this was by far the worst. No one picked up the phone the week prior to my reservation, as I had a question. When I show up there is no hostess and we waited at the front for 15 minutes. After a buser finally seats us we wait 30 minutes for our waiter to come over. He tells us that more than half the menu is not available, to which we are not overly pleased. at this point we are ready to leave but I say we will at least have drinks. Waited 30 more minutes and still no drinks. One other table got up and left due to no service while we were there. Place was EMPTY on a Saturday night at 9pm. Finally I get up and tell our waiter we are leaving. They had not even begun to make our drinks. I went across the street to Katsuya for a delicious meal. STAY AWAY.

This place needs improvement in all areas of a good restaurant . Food was not good service was great and cocktails were better than everything they have to offer on the menu.

My previous review and experience here was not all that great. On my second visit I complained to the manager ans her saw to it that they made up for my previous visit. I would go here again to try other items off the menu. What I had was just okay. He venue seems great for a private party.

Had an early dinner, which is not the time to assess this restaurant, as they were barely ready for customers.

Their chef is awesome. We had the brandade, the ahi tuna, and the galhina e portuguesa. All three dishes were awesome, fabulously tasty, and beautifully arranged to look like a painting.

I only found out how great it looked when I pulled out the flashlight from my smartphone: the dining room is lit with such dark-red lights that you can not see what's in your plate. Ladies, if you go there, do not put any make up on, your friends will not be able to see it anyway.

And make sure you bring in earplugs or soundproofing headsets, or both. Because if you get the same D.J. as we did (an otherwise great looking lady, I wish I could have talked to her to have an opinion not based solely on looks, but she-----purposefully ?---made any conversation even with the waiter, impossible), you will come out of that place with an ear injury or a close-to-deafness status.

Third visit for us...took two other friends who also loved it!! Food is outstanding...we shared several dishes, all disappearing!! Great drinks that set the evening off to a wonderful beginning!! We have gone before the Pantages productions and it is, service, location, friendliness...just outstanding!! Wish we could get there more often...but, being in Palm Springs, trips to LA (for Pantages or other) are not often enough!! PLEASE go and enjoy!!!

Wagyu steak was tough. I dont think it's wagyu. The calamari salad had only a few tiny calamari rings. Duck eggrolls were bland, lacked flavor.

5.0Dined on October 27, 2015

My husband, two friends and I had dinner before the Pantages show. We were welcomed by the manager (Tanner), served GREAT cosmos at the bar while waiting for our friends (Marie), and then were served a sumptuous meal (mine was calamari salad and entree of scallops!!). Others were equally impressed with their meals and the service! This is a newer restaurant that needs to be known to others!! The atmosphere, service and food/drinks are not surpassed anywhere. Though we get to LA from Palm Springs for the Pantages season shows and other events, we wish we could enjoy House of Macau much more assured we will be back MANY times!!

The food was good the service was great but there was no indication that they were a sports bar or had a big giant TV over the dining area. Dining there on Sunday with football going on is not a good idea If you want to have a relaxing dinner this is not the place.

We tried House of Macau because of its proximity to the Pantages and we wanted to have an early dinner before the show. We could not get over how great the appetizers and main course were. We mentioned that we were fans of Morimoto and the executive chef who trained with Morimoto came out and spoke to us for a few minutes. He was fantastic and we told him so.

This is a must try restaurant for anyone who likes good food and drink

I had a large dinner party & everything was great.

Two of my girlfriends and I went to House of Macau this past weekend, in celebration of my birthday. The ambiance was wonderful - great music, decor, lighting, etc. The food was exceptional. For appetizers, we had the Salt & Pepper Shrimp, Duck Confit Eggrolls and Vegetable Pot Stickers. Everything was exceptional. For entrees, two of us had the delicious Wagyu Steak, which was phenomenal, with a side of mushrooms that were superb! My friend's steak was a bit under done and had to be sent back for additional heat. My other girlfriend, a vegetarian, had the Veggie Rice, which was just average, she said.

The drinks were fine. The Peach Schnapps - meh. The Lemon Drop was excellent, however. The bartender made one of my friends a Hot Toddy (no citrus) because she had a bad cold. It was awesome!

Our waiter, Joshua, was the best! He was smart and funny, and gave great suggestions and recommendations. Even more impressive, when my friend arrived and had to wait for the valet attendant before leaving her car, he went out and got her and took care of it for her - so she could just come in and join us instead of waiting. He also made sure we got out on time to make our theatre date. Absolutely exceptional service.

The waitresses attire was conversation worthy - short black dresses with slits up the sides that indicated no undies or thongs. Very trendy, I suppose.

The music was great. It started as eclectic funk, then changed to classic jazz (Ella Fitzgerald, etc.).

The restaurant was pricey but the food and service were worth it. It was a tad warm inside when we arrived, because our reservation was early and the AC was not auto-set to cool the restaurant in advance.

Overall, it was a great dining experience. I will definitely recommend House of Macau, and I plan to go again.

Ambiance great. Menu great. Service and food not so good. Expensive for what you get. Big plus - valet pkg and close to Pantages Theater

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday night, using a Travelzoo voucher. This used to be Cafe Entourage, a very hip chic restaurant/lounge that I loved.
The service from our waiter was excellent, he was very attentive. The host was just okay...wasn't chatty or anything at all .
Anyway I ordered the sear scallops and they were good, nothing too spectacular. My dinner date ordered the seared ahi, which was also enjoyed. The drinks were excellent...sorry forgot the name of mine but it was something fruity.
The ambiance and decor is very nice. Sunday night football was over so there weren't really any patrons there. The waiter informed us that they've been doing a lot of private events.
If they turn this back into the happening lounge on the weekends, I'm sure it'll be a 5 star place.

In LA it's hard to survive if you're just average and that's how I feel about House of Macau. It was not by any means bad it's just that it wasn't outstanding. The ahi tuna tacos were good, the scallops were good, the lobster was good and the banana egg roll dessert was good but nothing stood out and kept us from talking because it was so amazing. The restaurant drew a weird crowd, I can't describe it...just weird. My biggest complaint was that they don't offer valet. In my opinion, you can't have a successful higher end restaurant in Hollywood without valet. Parking in the lot late at night was sketch plus parking was $11.50 which is ridiculous. We might try them again after they'e been open awhile and if they add valet but no valet = me not returning.

I love the ambience and the food was fantastic. The flavors and different texture just popped. I would definitely come back.

After looking at the menu on line we know that this was not a place to get genuine Macaunese food but it was good. I personally had the small plates (hot and cold) and found them very good. Our waiter (Jason) was excellent, attentive, friendly and informative. We could not believe that an Asian restaurant did not have Iced Tea or much of a selection for Hot Tea. Oh well. They need to get Gentlemen Jack in the bar as well.

The decor and location has a lot of potential, but sadly that is about it. My fiancé and I went on a Friday night and it was pretty busy. The servers all seemed brand new as though they've never had experience in the service industry. They were slow, didn't pay attention and didn't seem genuine. The drinks were watered down and after my 1st cocktail, the glassware mysteriously got smaller. The food was super salty almost inedible and lacked actual flavor. My fiancé and I witnessed several servers constantly taking the wrong food to the wrong tables, including us. I really wanted the experience there to be much better than it was.

Relatively new restaurant and we had 20% off coupon from the W Hotel. We were seated in the bar for dinner - early dinner due to red-eye flight - but the bar was not the place to be seated as the TV is the size of the entire wall. Probably great for sports fanatics. Food was mediocre. Service was ok.

We had a 5:30 reservation and they say they open at 5:00 but the doorway was still roped off and we had to go around the entire building before I finally went across the rope and went inside. You could tell they were not ready for business. But they turned on the air conditioner and seated us. The small plates were great but the spicy went up as the meal went on and i am not a spicy person. I sure hope the homeless people we gave the left overs too enjoyed it. :)
