Seriously a sight to see. From the moment we walked in, it was 5 star service. The hostess was nicer to me than my own family is. And the waiter came out within 1 minute of us being seated. And let’s talk about the outside area. PHENOMENAL. Probably the most instagramable location I’ve been to in WeHo/BH. And I’ve been to some places. Ok on to the food. I’m a seafoodie (yes I just made that up) so I came for the lobster and it was so so so good! Fresh and flavorful. The bottleless mimosas are also priced right at $18 for 2 hours of champagne and oj. Please check them out and come ready to take pics and eat well!!!

There was nothing on their website about having to get the anniversary offer from Eventbrite. Of course it was sold out. We decided to stay anyway. The eggs on the Lobster Benedict were overcooked, as was the sauce. The burger was dry! And $2 to add a 1"-square piece of cheese? At least the sweet potato fries were good. And the service was good. But for those prices, I expect the food to blow me away. That place made me sad.

Environment nice but totally empty at 6:15pm $19 lobster roll had 1 small piece of lobster and mostly red peppers in mayo sauce. Bread was good. Husband burger ok. Similar to Umami but more expensive. Waitstaff seemed annoyed from start. Manager asked how things were, when we asked about the lobster he kind of slinked away and we never saw him again. Bar looks smarmy 80’s theme. Wont be back.

A fun eatery in a great location. Decor and ambience are super cool. The garden seating is a must do. Menu is very specific for meat and lobster so if you love surf-n-turf combos, you’ll love it here. Order the short rib tagliatelle - yummy! A huge plus is that it is inside the Sofitel hotel so after dinner have a cocktail at the hotel bar and take in the very hip hotel lobby.

We went on a rainy Saturday, and it was pretty great!
Very quiet (except for us), and the mimosas were flowing.
Service was excellent, and our food was hot and well-prepared.
Will likely try again on a bright spring/summer day... expecting a totally different experience, but for now I'll cherish the memories and cool photos my friends and I got to take while there.

Perfect choice for after Beverly Center spree or pre theater at Largo at the Coronet night. The patio is beautiful and the food is fantastic!! The indoor ambience is just okay. The service is excellent & the chocolate dessert is insanely great!! Definitely a great spot!

The service was good but the food was not there with flavor. Our bisque was super watered down and our short ribs pasta was super bland. We were celebrating our 6 year anniversary and we were a bit disappointed. Not impressed specially after wanting to try cattle and claw for so long. Lastly, we couldn’t even get the dessert we wanted because it had run out very disappointing.

The most disappointing food I can remember in my dining experience. The Lobster bisque was thin and devoid of Lobster. Why not service hot water? The Lobster pizza was without any sense that a lobster was anything but held over it a some point. And fair time for the Short rib pasta dish, it's sauce was a thin soup. I left most of every dish. The wait staff are kind and deserve to work for a much better establishment. I understand food and love to cook. I would never service or EAT this level of cooking. You must know this. If not just try the dishes that I did. I promise you too will be disappointed.

The food was good but the service was pretty awful. We were one of three parties and it took the server a good 20 min before he acknowledged us. It took another 20 min before we got our drinks. The place was empty too so it’s not like they were slammed. I won’t go back.

This is by far the worst Xmas meal ever.

I booked a table at 7 and arrived at 6.55 pm and was told that table is not available? By the time I sat down it was already 7.15 to 7.20 pm.

Secondly, the food was so bad. Can you imagine having your prime ribs cold? Majority of the foods were overcooked.

This is so bad and you need to pay for USD65 ++ with absolutely no value.

I left in an hour feeling upset

We were there for the Christmas dinner buffet. The food was good, but not amazing. Desserts were mediocre. Service was pleasant, but virtually non-existent. No one checked out table for 30+ minutes at a time. They weren’t even patticularly busy. We wouldn’t go back or recommend it.

Lovely restaurant inside of an upscale hotel in a great area. Able to sit on the patio with a heat lamp and was perfect temperature. Food was excellent and we chose a number of different lobster combinations which is presented in an elegant manner. Ambiance was very romantic, tables are not close together, and plants are plentiful so you feel as if you are dining in a garden. Our waitress was exceptional, explained all the dishes, and kept returning when we needed assistance. There is a separate bar area which also has its own small bite menu, but available in the main dining area. I would highly advise this lovely restaurant for a quiet, romantic dinner.

Absolutely delicious! We went for the cattle and claw #2, 2 burgers, 2 lobster rolls, 2 half lobsters, 2 fries and two salads! The lobster was cooked I perfection and the tarragon sauce that came with it was divine! We substituted the fries for truffle fries and would recommend those! Burger was juicy! No complaints! We will be back!

I went for my brother's birthday as he wanted surf and turf and we wanted to try something new. The restaurant is inside the Sofitel Hotel. He did in fact order the Cattle and Claw Bone In with Whole Lobster. I ordered the Bone in and he shared some of his Lobster with me. Everything was delish, including our salads and cheesecake for dessert. Steaks were ginormous, but super flavorful and cooked just as we ordered. Lobster was sweet and succulent. The vibe was pretty quiet as there wasn't a big crowd when we arrived at around 6:45 pm. Service was excellent. We both left with food for the next day. Seems like the hostess may have sat us without picking up we had a reservation. Will be back to try some of the other items on the menu (e.g. Lobster Roll and Bisque)

They only have two things on the menu - Burgers and Lobsters in various incarnations and combinations. Everything we had was super delicious and it was all reasonably priced (I would go as far to say inexpensive). My only complaint is that they uncharge for everything - sauces, cheese, etc. But the meal, with booze and dessert only came out to $50 per person
