Good food, we ordered off the menu as we saw some dishes we wanted that were not on the set course.
The steak was excellent, a little sweet in an asian fusion style, but not overbearing. My fish was good, pretty fresh and tasty. Nice large vegetable side course.
Good drinks and pretty good service.

Always takes forever to take your order and even longer to bring the check.

I've only been to Paley for lunch during the week, but enjoyed it every time! The ambience is lively and the restaurant is beautifully designed and decorated. I always enjoy seeing the architectural references to the old CBS radio station and its place in Hollywood history. (It may sound odd, but a trip to the restrooms that harken back to that era is a treat!) Most of the lunchtime clientele seem to work in the entertainment business -- from nearby Sunset Gower Studios, Viacom, etc. The food is always good and the service superb. I'd highly recommend it!

The Host was lovely. That’s about it. Our bartender turned on us the moment my friend informed him of his dairy allergy. He essentially ignored us for the rest of our time and, when we were able to get his attention for a drink or the check, he had the barback help us instead. It was very strange. My friends insanely expensive $26 burger was charred beyond belief and he didn’t receive the egg or bacon he asked to add on, though he was charged on the bill. The bartender tried to make amends by the end but it was very much too little too late.

It’s a great scene and good food but the service is consistently bad. I’ve been there a half dozen times and every time it takes no less than an hour to get a salad. If you want fast service order the sushi and nothing else.

Outdoor patio is lovely and everything we had was amazing. Especially in love with the curry Brussels sprouts!

Our experience here was subpar. The food was sent back to the kitchen twice and both times both chicken and fish dishes were raw. Ambiance is great but kitchen needs a new chef

Eating outside on the patio was lovely, and our waitress was great too, but the food was just okay. I had the hamachi and the watermelon and cucumber salad. Both were fine, but not worth what I paid for them. The menu I saw online looked amazing, but the one put down in front of me at the table was much less inspired. Where did all those great-looking dishes go? It seems they've scaled back and if so, that's disappointing.

Horrible service. Our waiter was great but service was snail-like slow from the minute we got in.

Really enjoyed the food and the ambiance dining outside ! Also very beautiful inside ! Great server ! Only problem was they had a single bartender that couldn’t keep up w the drinks at 745 . So might want to suggest they have an additional bartender after 6 !? Wonderful experience !

It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t awful, we would probably give it a second chance. Our service was lacking in a lot of aspects, it took a while to get greeted, she wasn’t the most knowledgeable and didn’t write things down and then had to come back to double check about what drink I ordered. It took FOREVER for her to come by again once we got food and we were ready to leave for a long time before plates were cleared and we got a check. The food was fine, not great.

The prices went up astronomically which might explain why the restaurant was mostly empty on a Friday evening. It's sad as there are few nice classy places to go in that part of town. Don't expect it to last long before it morphs into the next sports bar.
