Bring our tradition of good cheer, warm hospitality and exceptional food to your home or office. We’re proud to be in our 10th decade of continuous service. We originally considered it a quiet pastoral road stop, since Los Feliz Boulevard was just an unpaved country lane traversed by rabbits and rabbit hunters, in that order.
That’s when Walt Disney and his animators, set designers and crews would trek out between takes for a bite and a refreshment. So often in fact, the Tam was once dubbed “the studio commissary.” Join us and see why the Tam is said to have been Walt’s favorite restaurant.
As a family-run establishment, we’re committed to keeping our community safe. We always practice strong hygiene protocols and rigorously adhere to all CDC food safety standards.
So until we’re able to welcome you back in our dining rooms, let us bring a little comfort to you.

The prime rib is exceptional, the scotch is unequaled. I've grown a friendship with Scottish bartender Martin and server Tristene over the years and always look forward to seeing them both when I come to Tam. Being able to come in with my close friends, take in the gorgeous ambience, chat with Martin and Tristene, and all while enjoying delicious food and drinks is something I absolutely cherish! If I could afford to fly down to L.A. more often just to do all that, I would in a heartbeat.

We traditionally spend our Thanksgiving there and do Mother’s Day there, as well. My child loves coming here. She feels like she’s in Snow White’s cottage. Indeed, the ambiance is a huge selling point! We love it. The service is usually exceptional, though lately it seems like a lot of new staff who have yet to get everything down and seem to be still learning the ropes in some ways. My last visit here, I found myself disappointed that they don’t seem to offer any appetizing appetizers. What happened to the bacon wrapped dates? Or the deviled eggs? The desserts were uninteresting, too. What happened to the sticky toffee pudding? The traditional trifle? I hope they bring those back or at least revamp things to a more elevated level. At least I can always count on their prime rib being perfection!

The hostess was wearing converse. Seriously Lawrys? Servers were in jeans. Really? Restaurant can use a deep clean. Carpet, ceilings, and upolstery were filthy. Also an abundance of cob webs. I really used to like coming here but now I feel it has unfortunately taken a turn downhill. Too bad.

As scots we feel very home there and it is close to us. We took her there for mother's day brunch. Service as always was wonderful. Mother's Day menu did not have enough brunch type items including yorkshire bread pudding or smaller items such as sandwiches which are on regular brunch menu. She and my sister split the french toast bread pudding which was good. I had the corned beef which was really tiny for the $24 which was really overpriced and tiny. I have never seen such as small portion. In addition it was very bland not any spice. Worse with the hollandaise and two poached eggs it was really runny and hard to eat as they did not provide a spoon. I added torn up bread to soak up liquid but still had lots of spills which was bad for pictures. I know holiday menus are tough to cover an entire day. But consider your customers needs. There were many senior citizens especially women attending who need smaller portions like sandwiches. Staff was great and cleared tables and adjusted table sizes quickly to handle the crowd. The $8 valet charge is also high for Glendale areas but they provided great service were very quick getting us our car. Earlier in in the week I had a business lunch at Tam and out of town staff loved it.

The problem was not with with the seating, service, or ambience, but rather with the food! I had ordered the Price Charlie cut prime rib, as I typically do, and while it the correct size, it was largely comprised of Fat! I have never had a prime rib at the Tam with so much fat and I should have sent it back but did not. The kitchen in Tam should be told to pay more attention to what they are serving their patrons lest the restaurant acquire a bad reputation.

Mom loved the prime rib and it was perfectly prepared. Will definitely return for other celebrations. Thank you for making the day special!

While it did, indeed, come with the bone, as indicated on the menu, at least half of the thickness of the meat portion had previously been cut away from the bone before they served it to me. Therefore, it felt like I got a half a portion of meat.

Well except for the waitress' uniform, which used to be a cute tartan with a corset. And the prices of course. These are different times. Food was good--I ordered the same as I did decades ago--English cut with spinach. My only suggestion, and it would have made a world of difference, is to heat the plates before filling and serving. Unfortunately the food was cold when it arrived at our table. But good anyway. I wished for it to be hot but didn't want to bother sending it back. They should just heat the plates before filling.

Our servers and staff were very helpful and attentive. The food was good and the waiter brought a complimentary birthday triffle with a candle for my friends birthday. Such a nice touch. We even sat and talked way after our bill was paid. E we’re not rushed off
