Such an amazing experience. The food is sublime and so artfully prepared and flavorful. It is also just a delight to look at and learn about as it is presented! The service is second to none in LA. Our waiter and every server at our table was professional and knowledgeable. The room is quiet but not dull and the colors are gorgeous and not garish. We were celebrating our anniversary and they made a pleasant but subtle fuss over us. The bar service was terrific and sommelier was great (and did not immediately push the most expensive wine), he listened and suggested. Yes it is expensive but so worth it for memorable meals.

Unbelievable experience, extremely good food and unique. The juice-tasting menu option is a rare and new thing which really works and more places should do. A little pricey if you add things, but overall fantastic.

About the restaurant
The Grandmaster Restaurant and Rooftop proudly present a modern Italian-Australian offering that delivers a punch. Much like the recording artists who paved the history of Grandmaster Recorders, we believe rules are made to be broken and the best food comes from new interpretations of old traditions.
