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.

    We celebrated my husband's 81st birthday - their prime rib is the best! We like the ambiance and chose to eat outside because the temperature had cooled off. Our server was delightful - efficient with keeping our glasses filled, and she reminded us that their chocolate souffle was available. It was a delightful evening.

    Always great. Only disappointed with the dessert of hot fudge sundae. The ice cream was bad and they didn't have any more. Didn't offer much of an apology. How can you serve bottom of the barrel ice cream. It was awful and not have any more ice cream? I felt like they just didn't want to open another one.

    Why have both filthy and smelly toilets at the entrance of the restaurant?!? This is a very bad fengshui if you know what I mean. I could smell them even before I walked up to host counter. Please do something about it. As for food, the standard of the prime rib was declining…I could feel it. Please keep this up.

We enjoy it immensely for a many reasons: the atmosphere & history of the location, our family heritage, connection to Walt Disney, great for special occasions, service is wonderful, and the authentic food that is served. Though a little pricey, the prime rib melts in your mouth!

    We come here often and love Tam’s. But this is the first time the service really sucked. We were celebrating a birthday and the waitress never came by to fill our drinks, never came by to check if we needed anything after someone else placed our meals on the table. Then never asked us if we wanted coffee or dessert after the meal. Which we all did. Maybe she doesn’t understand the art of a dinner out. Or encouraging patrons to buy more food such as the coffee and dessert is what makes the restaurant money and a bigger tip. Then the bill comes and for some odd reason took 10 minutes to process and get back to us. Food always delicious but the service with this one waitress beyond subpar.
