West Restaurant at Hotel Angeleno Ratings and Reviews
I come to West about once every 5 or 6 weeks to meet half way with Valley friends. The view at night is pretty and watching others struggle with the traffic can be fun.
My date (age over 50) said her salmon was the best she had ever eaten. The best. It was moist but cooked well enough, properly seasoned, generous size.
I had the Portuguese fish soup which was a disappointment. There was sufficient fish and sausage in it, but the broth was close to tasteless. Mediterranean flavors should be vibrant not tepid. This soup did not make the grade.
The wines are 100% American which is fine, but the choices by the glass are limited and when I went, the list was going to change the next day and several choices were no longer available.
The view was great, the AC was cranked to high considering it was empty and already cold outside. Our server went to break and no one came by to check on us until shortly before he cane back from break. Good food portions, great mimosas, overall would recommend.
This restaurant is a great place for people from The Valley and The West Side to meet. The food is very good, the view is amazing and the service was excellent. The prices are a bit high. But parking was free. We will be meeting there again. Next time we want to try happy hour!
Unfortunately, I was unable to visit this restaurant. I received a call 30 minutes prior to my reservations and was told the restaurant was closed, but that another setup had been arranged. Needless to say, I was not happy about this and cancelled my reservation and called another place. It was a special occasion for friends and the last minute change was not very considerate.
The whole point of going to West is for the penthouse restaurant. Instead, they closed the restaurant and had us go to a small room on the 16th floor that was unimpressive at best. I was wedged up next to an old fashioned window air conditioner, low ceilings, etc. There was no warning for the switch in rooms, and I even spoke with the restaurant the day before when confirming my reservation. There was no mention that the restaurant would be moved. And of course, service is slower because the food is being prepared in the upstairs kitchen, and when my breakfast arrived, it was cold. The manager tried to make up for the inconvenience with free mimosas and a discount, but the money wasn't the issue. I needed a special place for a business meeting.
I'd long wanted to visit the restaurant atop the Hotel Angeleno - and was glad to try it for a Sunday brunch. It was surprisingly uncrowded and we enjoyed a leisurly meal. The restaurant has fantastic views of the Brentwood area and the 405 fwy, and has a very calm peaceful vibe. Service was attentive and there was live music - subtle and very pleasant as well. I enjoyed my breakfast, though it was nothing exceptional. I will return however for the ambience, view, and service.
Joined several business friends for dinner recently at West. Views are outstanding. Ask for a window table. Quality and presentation of food was excellent. However, we were constantly looking to flag down our waiter. Twice we sent the water server to chase down our waiter. He even walked by our table three times looking away! The restaurant was full and maybe they were short staff? Maybe the waiter was incompetent? Maybe they need another training session?
The service was excellent. The ambience was beautiful & the live music put the total dining experience over the top. We loved our waiter. He made our dining experience excellent. Although it states no tiping on the receipt he definitely deserved a large tip. Out of all the restaurants we went to in LA this weekend for Birthday celebration this restaurant & staff take the cake. Everything perfect. He gave excellent food recommendations & it even tasted better because of how we were treated. I would come back here over & over again
INCREDIBLE! We were all blown away by how fantastic this restaurant was. Originally going for the view, I wasn't expecting a 5 star experience, but that's what we got. Every aspect of the evening was perfect. The servers were friendly, the drinks were great, the ambiance was lovely, but most importantly the food was outstanding. Every dish that came to the table was even better than the last. The lamb was quite possibly the best dish I've had all year. Will definitely be returning and can't wait to share this experience with friends.
We were served by Henry and he did a superb job serving us and informing us of all the specials and making recommendations. He was very attentive and even suggested a free appetizer on Yelp. We got free drinks from the manager and free desert for my fiancée for her birthday. It was overall great time with my love and friends!
We didn't have the opportunity to actually dine, as we were unaware of the restaurant being reserved for a special event. We were not informed of this prior, and showed up only to be sent to the lower floor, which holds only a few tables an essentially no view. How about telling us before showing up, when I specifically requested a table near the window?
I wanted a place with a view but the food and service had to be top-notch. After some research turned up fancy places with great views and mediocre reviews, we ended up at West on a recommendation from a co-worker. The view is breathtaking, ambiance is very chill background music is perfect and service is friendly if a bit stumbly in shift transitions. It's a gem of a spot and we'll definitely be back, with both clients and friends.
This was my 100th time dining at the West, however it was my guests first. Unfortunately, they didn't mention there was a closed event happening in the main dining room, which is the most accessible way to the city view. The attending waiter was new and clumsily dropped the asparagus in the chair and on my purse, harming nothing except his pride and diminishing the dining experience we anticipated.
I definitely pardon the mistake, the oversight rehashing the main dining hall being occupied, but I don't pardon the lack of consideration. Management should've been informed and then an apology for the inconvenience.
I would still recommend this restaurant.
First visit. Ordered the Brie (sandwich) and Bisque. Best tomato bisque EVER. However the so called Brie sandwich was mostly unmentioned American or some other orange cheese with a few teaspoon sized pieces of Brie. Saving money? Not a good idea to fool customers. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. No second visit planned...
Having made a reservation one month in advance, and having had that reservation confirmed, when six of us arrived for a celebratory brunch, we were told that "the restaurant is much busier than expected [and that] there may be a problem seating you." A brief chat with the manager resolved this glitch. While the staff were well-intentioned, there were not enough of them to adequately serve the number of patrons. The live music was so loud as to make conversation difficult. With the wonderful view & the good food, it is very disappointing that this restaurant doesn't seem to be able to get its act together.
The view is incomparable in the Los Angeles area. The food is always good, and the Service on this particularar day was exceptional. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone I know. It is not overpriced, the overall ambiance is great and the staff is friendly and attentive. Good for business lunches, romantic dinners, and just to get together to have some fun.
We went here for Father's day brunch. I ordered the steak and eggs with steak cooked as medium well. And the rest of the family ordered their food. After 30 minutes of waiting, I added pastries or at least some bread since we are all starving and waiting. Foods were served after 45 minutes together with the bread and an over well-done steak with a meat that looks like old. And the rest of the family we're also disappointed with theirs. No wonder there were a lot of vacant seats during father's day where all restaurants are packed.
Not sure which was worse, the food or the service. We waited an hour for our food & when it came two of the orders were wrong - rare burger with avocado & onion came well done with neither.Four ingredient omelet came with cheese instead of 1 of the requested vegetables. Croissants served without any butter or jam. We had to ask 4 times for coffee refills as waiter walked by our table, oblivious. Under duress, manager finally comped the meal.
Nice view & complementary valet doesn't compensate.
