Booked a Brunch Reservation for my wife and her friends. They absolutely enjoyed themselves and when I got the check it was less than I expected to spend. Thanks for making her birthday a memorable experience!

Kind of disappointed, we were excited to go here but the service was terrible. Instead of enjoying our time, we kept having to look for someone because we needed something and nobody ever checked on us.

Ambiance is great, however food during brunch was lacking a bit. This was the Grill indoors. We’ve had dinner at the actual outdoor restaurant which I remember being great. Servers were not very attentive. Had to ask for wet napkins to be removed and empty plates to be removed. There was also hair in the empty coffe cup. If it was not for the rooftop ambiance I’d probably not return again. Will try another brunch spot.

Came here to see visiting family member from the Midwest. Great place to go for a great view of Hollywood area. Food was simply plated and tasted pretty good although pricey. $19 battered tacos??? Consider where you are, I suppose. Service was good and the ambiance is quite nice.

The Highlight Room is a favorite spot I like to take colleagues who are new to LA and get a thrill out of a beautiful rooftop! This is the perfect setting to create an inspiring conversation and talk about dreams. Might I mention, the House Salt N' Vinegar Chips is a delicious starter for lunch.

We loved everything we ordered and the serving sizes were bigger than expected. We ended up taking plenty home to enjoy later. The direct outside elevator was not in use so we had to enter through the hotel lobby and have someone show their access card to use the indoor elevator.

This was honestly one of the WORST dining experiences I've ever had. Made a reservation for 11am. Arrived with full party and weren't seated for 15 minutes, even though the restaurant wasn't even half full. It took another TWENTY MINUTES for a waiter to come to our table (this is after we asked the hostess if we had a waiter for our table). No water was provided, drinks came out after ANOTHER 20 minutes. For a place as expensive as this, it's insane to think the service is so poor. I guess go to the pool to take your instagram picture, but don't bother eating at the restaurant.

We tried this restaurant for dineLA and the food was good. The only thing that I was disappointed about was that the Arnold Palmer cost $8, which was not very good anyway. My nephew's alcoholic beverage was $20. All in all it's a very good location with beautiful views.

Rooftop view is spectacular with Hollywood sign front and center. Worth a visit, especially for out of town guests looking for a Hollywood experience. Food was tasty - burger and fries were not very hot, otherwise, very good. Sent the fries back for hotter version. Server was happy to do so, but they still came back warm.Service was a little slow. Parking in the area is an issue, especially on Sunday - Valet is $20 so be forewarned!

I loved the view. However I was extremely disappointed as I made a reservation for 3pm and was informed that closed at 5pm sure to a special event. I thought 2 hours would have been enough time for drinks and appetizers. Also this was a special occasion, we were celebrating my husband's birthday (just the two of us) . When we arrived, w were told it was last call and weren't even able to order food. To top it off we were practically asked to leave at 4, a whole hour before their supposed closing time. Very disappointing.
