 (Orange County)·Dined on February 11, 2018

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.

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.

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.

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.

The waitress was very attentive and helpful regarding my olive oil allergy, which I mentioned when I made my reservation. I was doubtful she would be aware of it as I'm not accustomed to restaurants making note of it and taking it seriously. She disabused me of this notion right away, telling me she would be checking with the kitchen to see what I could eat! I asked about several options, and she checked again, and I was able to have a delicious meal with no worries. The view is great, and the atmosphere was perfect for catching up with an old friend and enjoying a fun, relaxing meal between visiting the exhibits at the different galleries. I told the waitress I would tell all my friends about it, and return!

For such a fantastic location in a world class museum, the restaurant does not fit the bill as far as the quality of food and service goes! This space should be occupied by a top notch restaurant worthy of at least 1 Michelin Star status!

We love the Restaurant at the Getty. Have eaten there for years, for casual visits, for formal visits, for visits with the curators... Food was good as always... view was compromised by the Thomas fire - not Getty’s fault... ONLY reason it’s not 5 stars is ... service took too long. Don’t know why.. not too upset. Just honest.
