The light and openness of the restaurant, especially at the window tables, makes for a very comfortable ambiance for the beginning of a wonder museum day. I've eaten here several times throughout my many visits to the museum, and it never disappoints.

i would not call the noise level "energetic". it was disruptive. a quiet ,or low level classical music is more fitting to the getty environment.

The restaurant at the Getty was fine. Not fabulous, but adequate. One goes to the Getty for the art, not the food, so it was still an enjoyable trip, even if the restaurant was merely adequate. The management could do to spend a little more effort making sure that their wait staff are familiar with the menu.

Nice restaurant, but very overpriced. Food was good, but not exceptional. Plus, pork chops were undercooked. Service and atmosphere was excellent. Very nice deserts, however very expensive too. I was there two years ago and food was better. I think I’ll give it another try when I’ll visit Getty next time. Overall it was nice.

I had requested a quiet table but initially was brought to a table very close to others and it took a bit before we could be moved to a quiet table.

Nice atmosphere. Linen tablecloths, etc. Service was slow even though the restaurant wasn't too busy. It was also 2:00 pm. Two different people came to tell us what the soup of the day was. There was no bread at all served with the hummus. The heirloom tomatoes were cherry tomatoes. The only good thing was the Cobb salad. Truthfully though, about anyone can make a Cobb salad and a $23 Cobb is steep. Underwhelming to say the least.

Highlights are only restaurant at the Getty Center and panorama view toward ocean. As a destination good for tourists and special occasions. Price is expensive but ingredients are seasonal and menu changes. Food can be inconsistent. Watermelon salad had too much dressing and was soggy. Scallops were perfect but just two and small green salad with it. Wine list is very good. Deserts are tricky. They are more like sculpture than food. I try to pick the most simple. Service is the best. Very polite and attentive. The diners are enjoying themselves but keep noise level down which creates relaxed atmosphere. Good for conversation. Reservations are not necessary but best because lunch can fill up fast as tourists pouring through the door. Ask for table near the window.
