Another favorite restaurant.....both for the food and the ambiance......plus the staff is also great......
A pleasant and unique ‘neighborhood’ restaurant. Always enjoy ourselves at The Bel Air, even for a quick bite. Thanks!
We were looking for a nice, cozy, delicious restaurant near the Getty Center to have dinner before taking our friends to the airport. The Getty Restaurant was closed on Tuesday and this was the perfect spot and very close to the Getty. After a full day at the museum, this was a great respite.
Restaurant has potential but needs work. Had 7:15 reservation on Saturday night and were seated. Ordered at 7:45. Waiter came back to tell us they were "out of seabass" (1 of 2 fish on menu). Bel Air charges a $30 corkage fee even if you order another bottle of wine which we did. VERY FEW restaurants do this. 99% waive corkage if you order another bottle of good wine.
Easier to go to restaurants with enough menu items early on Saturday and that waive corkage if patron buys another bottle of wine.
Fabulous service, great food - very pricey
This is one of my favorite restaurants! The food is always outstanding! Everything I have had here has been really exemplary. The service is very good--everyone is friendly and welcoming. The Bel-Air is particularly great for meeting friends and having conversations--you can actually hear each other. Also, it is well located, right off the 405 Freeway with easy access to the San Fernando Valley and the West side. I love the food, the ambiance, and the service, and highly recommend the Bel-Air.
The pretzel bread rolls are amazingly good, and served warm. We thought the appetizers were fabulous (had the lobster bisque and the golden beet and arugula salad with its generous portions of brie). But we didn't rate the food as excellent overall, because the entrees didn't live up to expectations after the starters! The short rib, while tender, was barely seasoned at all, and the seabass was pretty bland despite its attractive presentation. We did not try dessert. Next time I go, I WILL order that golden beet salad. Don't disappoint me by cutting back on the brie! This is a very lovely room in which to dine, it's just that the entrees don't seem as tasty as they could be.
Impeccable in every respect: food, service, ambiance. Susan Lord does a great job.
Service and food was good. It was Saturday night but no customers. Surprising
We've been going to this jewel of a restaurant for almost a year now. Can't say enough about every level of quality a restaurant should possess. World class! And considering it's LA, that is saying something.
We celebrated a birthday here (party of 8) after visiting the Getty. The food and location were great. The service was a bit disorganized and I am not sure if the server was new or they were short handed but we had to keep tracking her down. Other than that, it seemed like a local gem.
Difficult parking situation, but due to valet, worth the effort! Food was all fresh ingredients and top quality, served in an appetizing manner. Delicious. Server was attentive and friendly and responded to special requests. Good meeting place for client meetings.
A great place for a quiet leasurly meal. Limited but varied menu with each item carefully prepared. Attentive service and convenient valet parking make for a pleasant experience. Our pastas were superb and dessert choices were too good to skip.
Great as always! I have had business lunches, special occasions and family dinner here and all were enjoyable....
Every time I dine here I love the experience. Great staff. Innovative offerings that pleases and never disappoints. I have also used their private room for a biz event. Overall it has been a wonderful experience.
Have been many times,never dissapointed ! Food and Service superb. This time had
the BLTA sandwich and the pear and Gorgonzola salad. Still thinking about it today.
great for business, friends etc. Wish I lived closer it would be my weekly GO To for sure.
Good food, nice service but was quite expensive for what it was. Parking was expensive and is a negative factor.
Food always outstanding. Just a great spot.
I had the turkey burger which was delicious, but the lunch menu is pricey. Enjoyed the pretzel bread . Service was good and well paced.
