The Tam O’Shanter is a dining legend in the heart of Los Angeles, where you will find the charm of a Highland inn. The qualities that built our reputation- superb food, outstanding service and a dedication to honoring our guests with the highest quality in value- are as strong today as when we first opened our doors in 1922.

Reception desk was rude and unaccommodating when I asked to be seated not too close to other tables. She said no.

It would be nice to see a few new choices at the carver station.

As always, the service, the meal and the ambiance were superb. And I was especially pleased to learn that you no longer offer straws to patrons! Your commitment to sea animals (and trash buildup) is admirable!

Vibe and scenery are fantastic. Compared to Lawry's the food is not quite up to par.

Had a birthday dinner on a Saturday night with a group of 7. Food and cocktails were delicious as usual and our server was terrific. Highly recommend Tam O'Shanter and we will definitely be back again soon.

Love this classic Hollywood eatery. The food is great and the authentic decor takes you back in time. Known to have been Walt Disney's favorite eatery when he was making "Snow White," the the magical storybook ambiance is pure inspiration. There aren't many vegetarian options but there are a few tasty offerings and meat lovers will be in heaven.

Amazing prime rib and the cream of spinach was delicious. The service was very efficient without being annoying. And the atmosphere was very warm and comfortable.

The Tam is fun place to dine for a special occasion. I requested the Walt Disney table and was able to get this special table. I wish that the inconsiderate individual who carved his own initials into the table would have left the table untouched. We consider the Tam a special place and wish that the patrons would dress more appropriately for a nice restaurant. Cargo shorts and t-shirts should not be acceptable attire.

The cocktails we ordered were quite good and reasonably priced. We are carnivores and usually order a Prime Rib selection. I especially like the creamed spinach side. The food was very good, as usual. French onion soup was luke warm and must have been waiting in the kitchen to be served. Service was very good.
