I brought my fiancé to dinner here for her birthday. The food was great. I had the garlic chicken and she had the chicken cacciatore, which we both enjoyed. The bread is amazing! Being that it was her birthday, they brought out the garlic ice cream, free of charge.. Not my cup of tea but I’m sure some people like it hahah. Overall, the food was great as well as the service. I’ll definitely be coming back in the near future.

We had a large group of 9 people for dinner. The service and food were great. The prices are high for what you get, but it is in Beverly Hills so by comparison to nearby restaurants it’s more reasonably priced.

Service was excellent as we told our waiter we were going to a show and had limited time and met or exceeded our expectations. The food was great and enjoyed by me, my sister and mother who was celebrating her 77th birthday.

This is all based off service and not food because we left before the food came out. It was our very first time there, we sat down and made our order for an appetizer then our food at the same time. Confirmed we would like the appetizer to come out first. Our waiter came back about 25 min later and said our food would be our shortly. Still no appetizer. Another 20 minutes goes by with no waiter checking in, and still no food. At this point we were put off by the service and we left. The waiter saw us, didn’t stop us but went directly to his manager to explain himself. On our way out we requested to speak to the manger who you can tell felt defeated and embarrassed. He handled the situation well on his end but that Waiter turned us off to their establishment.

Went after the Eddie Money tribute and the great food, atmosphere and service set us up for a fun night.
Great place to go if you need to get the ball rolling with a larger group of people. The atmosphere is so conducive to simply having fun. Thought garlic ice cream with fudge topping would be gross. Not sure I would normally order it but glad I was exposed to something new. If dining as a couple ask for the canopy tables! Went again two days later after the Jimmy Buffett musical. Bingo! Another great time!

I had a reservation and requested a booth but was told there was non and if I wanted to go to the bar where there was a bunch I could seat myself. The hostess looked like she hated her job and I felt like what was the point for the reservation then? Service was okay we sat in the bar where it was empty and the people that came in the bar after us got their food and drinks out so quick before us . Good thing the food was good and I do want to come back and try more things on the menu .

The ambiance was fun and decorated nicely , and although it was crowded, you still felt like it was very intimate. The main course took a little longer than expected to arrive, but the appetizers did not disappoint. The one thing I would definitely encourage to change is the valet/parking process. We waited over 25 mins in the cold to get our car and unfortunately as more people kept coming out from the restaurant we were all being pushed (like cattle) to stand out on the uncovered sidewalk, there weren't any heaters to help keep warm with the cold evening temperatures. And although the valet workers were working their hardest , there has to be a better and more efficient way to help with that process.

It was the day after Valentines Day and the place was very busy but the services was not that good. We had reservations but they made us wait in line with others that did not have reservations. We had to ask for bread whereas the other tables just received it. We ordered but never received french fries though it was on the bill, waiter did not split salad as we had asked him to so we split it ourselves using our bread plates. The couple next to us where seated five minutes after us but they received their food and drinks and everything before us. I ordered the chicken and it was small and just okay but it cost $29.99. My wife ordered Salmon and hers, too, cost $29.99 and she liked her more than I liked mine. The cost though was too much for what we received. I don't mind paying a little more for dinner but I expect the service to be better if I am going to drop that much. The Stinking Rose is a tourist trap. I always wanted to go there and finally did, and will not be back.

Food was served cold, ordered Rib eye and Prime rib. It was good though. Had them reheat it again. Server took a long time to come around. Took a long time giving our check. They made us pack our left overs ourselves. Valet was chaotic. Prob took 30 mins to get our car.

Was quite busy but understandable due to being Valentine’s Day. I am so impressed on how the whole staff was ready for Valentine’s Day weekend, everything was so smooth, there was a line getting in but wait was not as bad as I thought.
Our waiter Mario was very knowledgeable with the menu was nice enough to answer our questions on the menu for my date who has not been.
Food was awesome and came out pretty quickly.
We had orders the sea bass and prime rib. My date said every bite on the prime rib was amazing. Lastly we tried their famous garlic ice cream and it was to die for!
Experience overall was just perfect!
