Everything about West was good except for the entree of my dining partner and me, and unfortunately we both had the same thing. The ambiance and views are beautiful, the service was attentive, the restaurant and hotel have a no-tipping policy so the value is there. We had an appetizer of tempura shrimp on coconut rice that was excellent, but then we both ordered the pork chop. The portion sizes are generous - overly so in my opinion, the size that kills your appetite. The pork chop itself was incredibly tough/dry - both of us only took a few bites. It was accompanied by mashed sweet potatoes, which had tons of sugar in them - tasted like something that should have been served at a Boston Market.

The food was pretty average. Our server was nice but slow. Our drinks took forever and we were the first and only people there. The view is pretty though

They ruined my date …
They gave us a table next to the bar even if a requested nice view for my girl.
Server was kinda rude the whole Process of the dinner .
Food was very poor quality , charge a lot for that type of food.

Definitely not going back or recommend to anyone …

Hotel Angeleno and their restaurant West are "Tip Free" establishments, and I appreciate they take care of their staff. I thought if there was no tip to be earned, maybe service could be off -- but not in the least! Lovely people, friendly and knowledgeable. Food was prepared perfectly, I'd go back. Special shout-out to their cocktail creations! These are thoughtful and innovative mixes. PS: We tipped anyway, there's something special about tipping purely as a thank-you.

My son and I stayed at Hotel Angeleno on July 4, 2021. I made a reservation for West Restaurant for 8:00PM. As soon as the clock hit 5:00, my son was ready to eat. The host was kind and friendly. When I told him we had a reservation but we were 2& 1/2 hours early, he said it was no problem and seated us right away. I ordered the Brentwood Salad, which was a delicious combination of fruits and vegetables, topped off with their yummy Champagne Vinaigrette dressing. It was one of the best salads I've had in a long time. For my main entree I chose the Cajun Salmon. When I asked to exchange the side dishes for other selections from the menu, the waitress said absolutely. It was great to have such immediate flexibility without having to wait for her to go ask the chef. My salmon and the side dishes were all very delicious. My son ordered a burger and fries. He enjoyed it immensely. He also loved the scoop of vanilla ice cream he had for dessert, as did I the cup of decaf coffee I had after my meal. The hotel has a no tip policy, which made it easier when the bill came- easier because there was no calculation involved and easier on the pocket book. Thank you to the staff and management of Hotel Angeleno and West Restaurant for a wonderful stay, great service, and delicious food!

The food was not good at all. Plus it was my birthday. I booked this place for the rave reviews of the city skyline. I was sat on the side with a view of the freeway. Not the view I expected to see on my birthday. But the staff was nice

Food was not the reason we came, though it was fair. The views were the highlights and did not disappoint even though we didn't sit by window being a larger party of 5.
I like that it was gratuity free, which restaurants should strive to pay a living wage so workers don't need to work for tips.

Nice views and pretty elegant restaurant. But that's as good as it gets for this place. The clam chowder tasted like it came out of a Campbell's tin can. The spinach and mushroom ravioli had a tomato sauce that tasted like it came from Vons. Likewise the teriyaki chicken stir fry tasted like it came from a deli hot bar. And the service was extraordinarily slow. Bottom line, come to this place for drinks and the view, but unfortunately, not the food :(

Most of the food was very good. Unfortunately the crab cakes Benedict was truly bad. I suspect they were store bought and overly deep fried. Could be wrong but that's how they seemed. Couldn't taste crab and it was more like a round over cooked fish stick texture.

They told me i needed to wait for my date (we were a party of 2 black women) who had run back down to our hotel room 6 floors down before they would seat us which was fine when they said it but when we were leaving they sat another party of (2 white men) who were waiting on a third party without making them wait for their 3rd guest to be seated. They gave us both the wrong order. They sat us (and every other black party who came in on one side of the restaurant and the white people on the other side) by an obstructed view window between 2 very loud parties. They barely checked on us and how we were doing. When we ordered a red bull instead of bringing us the full can (that they charged us for) they brought a glass (about half a can) with the red bull filled with ice (when i mentioned it they did bring another glass filled with red bull and ice). Overall poor service i wouldn't come back. (The night before we went up and were told reservation only but we saw several parties come in with no reservations)

Service was bad and slow food was not good quality for the price. Our appetizers arrived at the same time with our entrees. Despite our reservation and request to where we wanted to sit they sat us some where totally not to our liking and evem though the restaurant was empty they said those other tablea were reaerved.

We went for brunch on Sunday and had a great time! They had a jazz trio playing which made for a lovely brunch. Service was quick, food as excellent and the view was incredible---you can see all the way to the ocean! We will be back.

The food is good, though not necessarily unique or memorable. The setting is kind of cool — it has a deco vibe and a view, but on a Friday night it was somewhat dull and felt like a weird transient hotel vibe of families catching dinner after a flight and then teenagers on dates. I wouldn’t argue going back, but I’m also not going to go out of my way.

The place was empty and the service was slooooooww. The crab Louie had bell pepper, which was not disclosed on the menu. My salmon was over cooked and arrived cold. The only redeeming food item was the French fries. They’re great fried in duck fat, and would’ve been even better served hot. Won’t be back.

Potatoes are often made very loosely/undercooked - too mushy and bland. Service was poor due to no check-ups, no refills on water, and no attention to detail. It’s okay.

Nice date spot, the food is sub par especially for the pricing. The views are the best thing about this restaurant. I can’t comment on the drinks because none were ordered, and the service was good. If you’re looking for awesome food, I would not recommend this restaurant but if you’re looking for a nice romantic vibe, than you’ll get that with this pick.

First time and very impressed! Coming back this week for a birthday celebration. Staff & service was great, food was delish, and ambience/view was very nice. And the “gratuity-free” environment makes this place a luxe 5-star bargain. Been telling all my friends! Keep it up West!

When we arrived, the hostess was friendly and sat us immediately. The section across where we were seated had just been trashed as if someone dropped a few meals all over the table and floor. Someone came and cleaned up after a few other associates just walked passed the tin can of ketchup that was spilled on the floor and other food particles. I requested a window seat, but the hostess said none were available. We noticed three tables near the window but they were dirty. Our server was was friendly when we asked can we move near the window which I requested in the reservation. She gladly cleaned the table and moved us. Service was good and food was okay

When I made the reservation I was not told that the dining room with the primary view had been reserved for a private party. It was for this view that I'd booked a table. It wasn't until we'd already valet parked that we were told the main dining room was closed to the public. This is very bad public relations and I'm not inclined to return.
