The waiter refused to bring us a heater despite our repeated requests on the basis that the restaurant had limited propane and the heaters at our table were out of propane despite there being other heaters in the restaurant which had propane.

Quality of food was really good. Lots of flavor and fresh as it’s cooked on the spot on the rooftop. I thought we would be able to see the sunset but we were on the other side of the building. View was nice, The Observatory on the hill. Overall good experience. A bit pricey.

WOW. What an amazing find. Tried to find a local steakhouse for our 33 yr anniversary prior to going to a play. Found this on Yelp and so we tried it. Making reservations was easy, the food was absolutely amazing. The skewered shrimp and pork bellies were the main course along with kimchi rice and lobster corn fritters as sides. So far, this is the best dinner I have had in 2021. The chef does an amazing job and should expand to a major restaurant to express his interpretation of fine dining. The Everly hotel is lucky to have him.

The food was not good. The Eggs Benedict was missing the ham, the Pork Belly was all fat, and the chicken in the Chicken & Waffles tasted like it had been cooked in oil that needed to be changed. Additionally, the service was not great and it was expensive.

My family and I decided to try this place after a long day of driving, and I can confidently say we were not disappointed! The menu had something for everyone without being dauntingly extensive. My son and daughter each got the skirt steak skewers and finished them, which is a rare thing for my son. We felt very well-taken care of by the staff, who were especially friendly and helpful. Overall a wonderful experience! Hats off to the chef, and the serving staff as well.

Amazing! Chef Jeffrey Williams and his sous chef seamlessly blended their open kitchen concept with fun, friendly conversation. The space is quiet and intimate with great views of the city. The food was definitely the highlight of our experience though. Best takoyaki we’ve had outside of Japan! Cheers from two Detroit natives!

Restaurant on rooftop, was a pop-up, but being converted permanently to a restaurant. The food was simply superb, we had chicken and pork belly kabobs and the seasoning and tenderness was the best ever. I also had the Wagyu sandwich which was perfectly done and again the seasoning was perfect. Service was great, wish they had more selection of white wines, but, not a big deal. Definitely try this place out.

We loved our dinner. Took my sister out for Mother's Day and we had the perfect night. Great view, nice ambimace so you chat , and food was great. The chef checked on us too.
It's not cheap, but the view in Hollywood and rooftop make it worth it.

This dinner was to celebrate a major milestone in my partner’s life. We were greeted warmly and promptly shown to a table we requested, with a view. Beautiful space! Mikey was our server and from the start he was kind, humorous, and informative. Genuinely outstanding service, and we had a blast chatting about food and lifestyle with him. We are so happy this pop-up is there to stay! We will put it into our regular rotation and be back with more friends, definitely.
