Excellent in every way!
The experience missed target. We did the price fix menu with fairly high expectations, and the food while good, wasn’t the level expected for cost. Would try again, but order off menu next time.
I have a daughter who is vegan so it’s not always easy to find a restaurant that can cater to her requirements; however, this restaurant did. The vegan dish was absolutely mouth watering. I talked to the staff and they stated that the chef was going to expand the vegan menu. This restaurant caters to vegetarians, vegans and us meat eaters. I definitely give this restaurant an A++.
The view and the cocktails make for a stunning dining experience.
I love coming to this restaurant. Love the view and the ambiance. I feel it is a bit pricey for what is served and that the staff is a bit snotty, but I love coming anyway.
100% the best experience of my life. The food was amazing, 10/10. The deserts we're probably the best I've ever had. Whoever made the desserts has fans for life.
nice lunch . nice view with tasty food options. good cocktails.
The menu is a bit limited, especially for a museum lunch, but what was served was excellent, as was the service and ambiance. Check the online menu to be sure that this is what you are expecting. Alternatively, there is a simpler cafe, which we did not visit.
Blustery day, clear skies, wonderful view. Mushroom pot pie warm and savory. Paella? Tasty shrimp and rice but not paella. Smoked strawberry sorbet...mmmm. Delightful service, hushed tones. A bit pricey for every visit to the Getty but a wonderful afternoon.
The room is singularly attractive, conveying a feeling that makes it special and joyful to be there. In fact, I found the room superior to the food. In fact, I sent back the meat main course because it was tough, luke warm and overcooked. The vegetables were better, but still on the cold side. The ice cream dessert was the best effort and was fun. Also, I found the seating wanting in that my chair was at the window but facing in to the room rather than out at the beautiful vista beyond the glass. Overall, I would suggest that more attention should be given to the food itself.
Superb food, terrific service in an elegant setting at the beautiful Getty Center.
Overall loved the place. Great ambiance. Food was good. Wish there were a few more selections available, as the menu was a bit limited for someone with shellfish allergy or who did not eat pork.
Outstanding food. Very nice service and beautiful interior. Very pleasant location to have a quiet and enjoyable dinner.
I enjoyed my dinner at the Getty. I went there before a performance the the museum and the service was great. The food was great. It was special to see the lights on the hills round about. My only quibble would be the closseness of the the tables.
My niece came to visit. Wanted to take her someplace special for lunch. Chose Getty Center. Never disappointed with the view.
Food was just okay.
Amazing food. This is not your average "museum restaurant." It is chef prepared, highest quality food, in a beautiful setting overlooking the ocean. The food was so good and presented so beautifuly, I rate my recent lunch there in one of the top ten restaurant meals I've ever had. Each bite was a little taste of heaven the entire meal. A job really well done.
I enjoyed my lunch very much however we had a reservation and still had to wait 15 minutes before being seated. Otherwise, all went very well. We liked our waiter.
There are pros & cons to eating at the Getty restaurant: you're at the Getty Center👍The view can be spectacular, if your table is well placed & it's daytime👍the food is delicious when you finally get it, the service was quite slow when we were there😕the bar has a great selection of wines & decently made cocktails 👍overall I found it much too pricey for what you get to make it a regular 'go to' restaurant 😔
The Getty Restaurant never disappoints; always enhances a memorable day in the galleries and gardens.
I love eating here! Most fabulous views ever, exceptional service by knowledgeable and friendly waiters, amazing food, and the restaurant itself is an architectural work of art! For special occasions, it’s my first choice.
This was my second lunch at the Getty. This year the service was slower, very slow, in fact. And when I asked the server if the salad I was considering was room temperature or cold, she told me it was not cold. It was very cold. So. We waited a long time for the server to bring the bill. This was at 2:30... Such a lovely place, lovely views, ambiance. My guest's meal was fine.
Pleasant, more expensive than it should have been, beautiful panoramic view of LA to the ocean.
Beautiful views and great service.
A very nice restaurant in the Getty Museum, itself seeming like a bit of Olympus broke off and settled gently onto the Earth. A small, but nice and reasonably-priced wine and beer list. We had a bottle of Roderer Estate Brut champagne for $52. More than I ordinarily spend on wine, but quite a reasonable price for a restaurant to charge. They offer creative and tasty salads and appetizers. We split the Brussels sprouts salad with a maple vinaigrette dressing. The salad was not simple sprouts, the sprouts had been pealed like leaf lettuce to provide the salad's base, and the dressing, which I feared might be overly sweet/cloying, was instead light and tasty. The main course was a wonderfully delicious variation on spaghetti carbonara - no cream, shallots added, other subtleties I can't identify. I was sad after I had finished wiping my dish clean with the bread they provide.
Wonderful atmosphere and service - get a seat near the window - linger and enjoy the space and food!
I didn’t appreciate the wait persons attitude. He told me that because I had a cocktail before lunch I couldn’t tell whether my food was served hot or cold.
That being said, my granddaughter loved her birthday lunch as did my grandson and despite the waiters snide remarks we had a lovely time together.
The food was fabulous. We both had the fish. Our waiter was great but, he had way too many tables. So we sat a while with no water etc. the view is spectacular. Will go back
Beautiful dining room. We had a wonderful view and enjoyed our salad sandwich choice
From the moment we entered to the moment we left the restaurant staff was very amicable. Our waiter new the menu every well and his suggestions were good. My wife and daughters all loved their food. I loved mine as well. I had the sword fish and it was amazing.
Service was uneven, had to ask for our beverages to be delivered, meal took 45 mins to come, one main was undercooked, one was over cooked. It’s too bad, it’s such a beautiful place but the experience vs the price was very disappointing.
We were seated on time and they gave us our window table as requested. The tables for 2 along the window are about 10 inches apart so you need to be aware you hear everything on either side of you and they will hear your conversation. I'm OK with this at Starbucks but I like a little more privacy at a long lunch with my husband with wine, etc. Its such a beautiful setting and the ambiance is peaceful. We are vegetarians so ordered hummus as an app and then salads for an entree. We also had sorbet for dessert. Good wine list by the glass.
Whenever I visit the Getty (which has been long overdue), a must, is having an enjoyable lunch at the Restaurant at the Getty. Be prepared to enjoy a starter, entree AND dessert! The service and food are exceptional! Open Table made it easy and no waiting for our table.
Disappointing service with mediocre food - wasn’t made to feel special in such a scenic spot
We enjoyed the setting the of the restaurant. Our table was ready and the service attentive. The menu is a little limited in choice for lunch, but the food was tasty. We had a nice birthday celebration and view.
Lovely restaurant with great views. Service is crisp and efficient. Fairly limited menu but food is delicious.
We always have a wonderful time in this beautiful room.
Best panoramic view of L.A. and the Pacific with fabulous food and great service. The wine list is always top-notch without being crazy. We love this place.
Really pleased we could include this restaurant as part of our visit to the Getty Museum.
The man at the next table chatted with us. He drove from San Diego to Brentwood and ordered the prix fixe menu without looking at it, because he knew it would be good. That's the kind of place it is.
This is a stand-out restaurant that happens to be in a spectacularly sited building by a major architect. The Restaurant is not your usual museum afterthought.
Treat yourself to the restaurant at the Getty. The views are amazing and the ambiance is bright and sunny. The food is delicious. Service was quick, attentive but not intrusive.
