The Hideout Ratings and Reviews
The ratings above do not refer to The Hideout, but to STK, in the same hotel complex.
The Hideout took my reservation just a few days in advance, without comment. When I showed up for a simple summer evening dinner on the poolside patio, I was told that the restaurant was reserved for a private event that evening, and that my reservation had been switched to the hotel's other restaurant, the noisy, indoor STK steakhouse, which was considerably more expensive. Not wishing to relocate all my guests, I didn't go off in search of a different restaurant. But in the end, I wished I had.
Got there punctually for dinner before a show at the Geffen and discovered the restaurant was closed for renovation. Hope to try it out another time but in the meantime, don't book on Opentable until you confirm they're open again.
Please ignore all ratings - I haven't been there yet but needed to list a rating to leave feedback.
Another delicious meal on the W's relaxed, inviting patio -- I meet a good friend from abroad there annually, and we continue to be charmed by the service and setting. I was not as pleased, however, to watch two valets nearly wreck my car. The staff appear to need additional training as to how to handle the logistics of a crowded garage on a busy Saturday, given that I and other guests audibly gasped watching a valet-driven SUV come within a few inches of smashing my vehicle (and my radio was blasting upon entering the car -- not how I left it). Other than that, a great experience, and the hotel concierge and front-desk staff were incredibly helpful in answering my traveling guest's questions. Thank you.
Didn't realize it was a outdoor-only restaurant and we were quite okay with that because it was a beautiful day. Service and food was good, nothing outstanding. There were a number of dogs in the restaurant which I don't mind but diners may want to know about that before booking a table.
I came here for brunch with my husband last Sunday. It was a really lovely day and the ambiance at Backyard is very nice. It's pleasant, but the word that keeps resonating is underwhelming. The food was pretty good, I got the crab Benedict which was delicious but I thought the potatoes were so-so. Service was above average but kind of slow. (Waited for a water refill for 10-15 minutes after asking twice) i couldn't help but notice there every employee had on a different outfit and most of the servers looked pretty unkempt . It seemed like the only group that had any clear continuity was the server assistants/bussers. I just think that a place that is charging $20 plus per plate should strive to have a touch more elegance, and if it's a casual vibe they're aiming for than at least strive to have some style. All in all, I think that they'd have to amp up the vibe if they want to make it more than a one hit wonder
Waitperson was nice, but service very slow, especially for drinks. The food was overall very good, but certain dishes were not well presented, and in fact, inadequate. The lobster grits and the short rib hash were both served in small bowls, not worth the price, and looked more like appetizers.
This is a really cool spot, by the pool with a waterfall, outdoor dining only. The service is average and the food also is average. We had brunch with 5 of us and the staff seemed to be running around crazy. Granted it was Easter so I don't know if that is the way it always is. I would highly recommend it for a couple of drinks as the area is really cool. Bar itself needs to be upgraded, but overall it is a good, but not stellar, experience.
Food was OK. Not great, but OK. I like their bread though. Service was friendly, not snooty. And ambiance is really great for outdoor dining. Great for hanging out with friends by the pool and just enjoying the sunshine while having a light snack and some champagne.
We came here to celebrate our dog's 1 year anniversary with us (pathetic I know) but they apparently don't keep their website updated. So instead of the touted doggy menu being available they were accommodating in making him kid's cheeseburgers. However, the outdoor area was haphazard with hoses and water everywhere, tables unorganized and not much ambiance. Im glad it was our dog's dinner outing and not ours.
We chose this restaurant for a small birthday dinner of two because they advertise a dog menu for your four legged friend. When we inquired about the menu upon our arrival we were told they no longer offer the dog menu even though it is prominently promoted on their website. They were fine with preparing a burger patty for our dog which worked out but had we known they no longer had the dog menu we would have chosen another restaurant that did. Food was pretty good though. Service was less than what you'd expect for $180.00 for two people(no alcohol) and a dog. Overall it was just ok.
Great for pre-theater dining if you're going to the Geffen, but not cheap. My party of four shared some appetizers and Happy Hour items, as well as one full entree and one drink each and it was $40 per person. Still, if you order judiciously (or if money is no object, in which case lucky you!) it's hard to do better in Westwood than the food, ambiance and service here.
