The Tam O'Shanter is a dining legend in the heart of Los Angeles, here 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.

The restaurant is undergoing remodeling and the bathrooms are now located outside of the building. On a cold windy night, it was not pleasant to trek outside. The valet said that they hoped the remodeling would be done by St. Patrick's day. I hope so too.

We attended an afternoon concert in Pasadena and decided to eat at Tam O'Shanter afterwards based on the dineLA menu--four courses, including prime rib with all the trimmings, for $49. We were not disappointed. Everyone really enjoyed the food and had a great time. Our servers were pleasant, attentive, and efficient.

We were here for dine LA and we're shocked to find their bathrooms were port-a-potties. They were doing construction. It was disappointing and not a good impression for 2 of our friends who were dining at Tam for the very first time. The baked potato soup was not very good, but the prime rib was delicious as expected.

Always a treat to dine here. I feel like I'm dining at the local inn in a small village in England.

We went to Tam O'Shanter for the winter DineLA menu. The facility is currently being renovated to restore the outdoor patio dining that was originally on site. The only inconvenience is the restrooms are outside. However, the portable restrooms are very nice so there isn't any issues with the restroom service.

We had the dineLA menu and added Deviled eggs to our starters. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. We choose the prime rib and it was up to the Lawry standards. The sides of cream spinach and Yorkshire pudding were also very good. Our desserts were exquisite and decadent. I would recommend that everyone try the dineLA dinner menu since it is such a great deal and a great way to introduce yourself to this long-time LA gem.

Fun place to experience Hollywood history. The food is fine but not great. Go for the experience.
