Celebrated my sister birthday here over brunch while enjoying and overlooking a very beautiful scenic view of Hollywood. The services provided from the host to the busboy was absolutely amazing. We did a experience a slight issue due us being late but were accommodated in a reasonable amount of time

This is the third time I have dined here and I can’t express enough how upset my last experience made me. Our reservation was for 4:45pm and once we arrived the hostess notified me then “the last call for food and drinks it’s at 5pm” I was shocked because I was never notified of this, had it happen before I would have made reservations elsewhere or tried to get a reservation earlier. Our serve Camille was a sweetheart and very apologetic. What a terrible way to manage reservations. The last allowed reservation should be 4:30pm which would at least give the courtesy of guests to order food and maybe two drinks without being rushed! Terrible management.

Our visit was somewhat pleasant. I made reservations online for 2 people to enjoy an early Sunday dinner since we had tickets to visit the Van Gogh that night at 7pm. When we were seated down, shortly after our server informed us that for Sunday they only serve breakfast and brunch, and that on Sundays the restaurant closes early at 5pm. I was confused, because when I made the reservation online it was showing later times giving the impression that dinner was being served on Sundays too. The server had further explained that the Highland Room Grill's website menu for Sunday indicates the hours of operation. However, we were not the only patrons that had made reservations for dinner. I believe there was a disconnect between Highland Room Grill and Open Table which was causing the confusion. My rating was based on the limited menu and time allotted at the restaurant.

We celebrated my grandmothers birthday and Imani made our experience exceptional! She made outstanding recommendations and all the food was delicious. The hash and the Frenchie were our favorites and the olive oil cake was amazing! The view combined with the great service made our occasion even better.

Dinner at the Restaurant was good but we had a business meeting in dream hotel think pad then came back up to have more drinks and we had the worst experience! Will never return to the rooftop after dinner hours. Security was extremely rude! A lady by the name of “T” may be the worst employee to represent your company.

We made reservations for four for a 12:30 lunch on a Friday, as it was close to the Van Gogh exhibit we had tickets for. We were sat right away and there were only two or three tables full at that time. We were offered a seat by the window and had a fantastic view! (Actually, I think every table had a fantastic view!)
We were greeted by our server and we ordered some drinks, then ordered our lunch. Our food came and it looked, smelled, and tasted delicious! We each got something different and loved it all! We so enjoyed our experience- the service was great, the view was amazing, and we would all come back again!

We come here often and have never had a problem. We brought friends from out of town and spent over $500, the service was horrible and the valet situation absolutely terrible. We waited 25 minutes for them to get our car. Very disappointing!

We had a really great time at lunch here. It was a birthday celebration and a surprise that our best friend and his entourage could join us as we are all from Philadelphia. The waitress was very helpful in making the surprise work out. The view was amazing including the Hollywood sign. The food was delicious. It was a "highlight" of our trip.

The food and drinks took too long to come out. The drinks didn’t have much alcohol and the food wasn’t great just ok.
Great ambiance but lacking anything else.

The veggie or potato hash on the menu needs to be revamped.
It’s dripping in a visibly unhealthy amount of oil. Or maybe we just visited on a bad day.

Reserved online, grabbed drinks at Tao’s Lounge before dinner, assisted by staff to locate Highlight Room elevator, seated promptly, and offered table with a view. Overall, the staff are very kind, courteous, and they delivered exceptional customer service for our first dinning experience. Definitely order the signature cocktails, and the calamari.

Sara was our waitress and was great. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was nice. The martini was delicious and we ordered oysters, calamari and the truffle fries. Everything tasted great. Will definitely go back when I am not on a tight schedule...Definitely try to find street parking. The parking at the hotel is somewhere between $15-20.00.

The food and drinks were okay. The best thing here is the view and the Margherita Flatbread.

I would suggest getting dinner elsewhere, then coming to the Highlight to order some appetizers, a bottle, and enjoy the view.

took forever to get food
small portions very expensive and food was only ok
avocado toast almost 20$ for a couple of thin slices of bread with avocado spread on top ...very underwhelming

the fried chicken was yuck but waffles which were extremely small were ok

great quintessential LA ambiance however and great rooftop view
good service but food took a long time to prepare

overall a very ok experience
