Festive vibe on a Saturday evening. Quick seating with reservation. Fun to pop in and hear retro band playing in bar next door to main dining area. Enjoyed holiday decor and historical photo displays. Food better than expected for such a kitchy place. Waitress met basic needs, but lacked enthusiasm--we imagined she's worked there more than 25 years and has seen it all, can't be bothered? Overall a good night.

Love the authentic old Hollywood vibe and classic menu. Service was super spotty. Nice waiter but forgot my starter and then brought dessert while I was still eating my entree! Not cool.

We celebrated our daughters 32nd birthday. Food and drinks were amazing. Atmosphere decor was festive. Service was a little slow even though we were there at 6 pm and it was not super busy yet. But overall a great meal.

Thanksgiving holiday lunch. Our waiter and additional staff were exceptional. My family members are blind so the staff communicates with them letting them know where coffee and other things are placed on the table.
We love going to The Smoke House!!

The prime rib special on Monday is decent. The happy hour thing is a bait and switch. Open table mentioned $6 cocktails. This was available only at a very few tables and only until 7pm. No tables available, so we went into the dining room for dinner. Tasty Manhattans...for $13 each. The servers were nice and reasonably attentive, but it took forever for someone to come to our table at the outset.
Most importantly— when will this place open the windows to air it out and change the carpet?! Rusticity has become somewhat unpleasant. Even a paint job would be most welcome.

My first Smokehouse Sunday brunch and it was terrific. My company was a family of four with young children and they were somewhat adventurous but well behaved and the waitstaff was patient and kind.
The food was great! I’ve been to a number of Sunday brunches and this was amongst my favorites with a wide delicious, always updated and fresh selection. I enjoyed the omelette bar and brought over my portion of poached salmon and veggies which was welcomed to be included. King crab legs, eggs Benedict, really- whatever you can conjure for breakfast or lunch was there for your pleasure to load up your plate.
I’ve filmed there a few times for different films and tv programs and always enjoy the old Hollywood charm. Never disappoints.
Valet parking is under $5.
I’ll be back!

Went to the Sunday Brunch with a party of 11. The place was really buzzing. The buffet had about a million items of every description. When the platters were emptied, they were filled right away. Service at the table was outstanding, with coffee, water, champagne available often, always without having to ask. Definitely got out money's worth.

Be ready for an 18% service charge regardless of how many people in your party. The older caucasian gentlemen at the bar was RUDE and kept making smart a$$/racial comments to one of my friends (he is latino). On the up side, the service during brunch was great, we stayed at the table a bit over 2 hours and our mimosas were never empty! Good job!

Waiter/service were average at best. Expected more for this restaurant. Have had much better service here in the past. Reservation for the party size (10 people) was made well enough in advance to prepare. Bartender was terrible and waiter was not friendly.

Driving up to classic Smoke House with Valet Parking and friendly staff a nice greeting to a wonderful dining experience...inside friendly Host staff who are always accommodating taking us to a lovely booth and luck would have it our favorite server Yvonne is on duty, truly a Pro she always makes sure everything comes out perfect, from delicious Soup De Jour of the day to main entrees everything first-rate. Interior sparkles in Old World elegance and Boston Crème pie to end a great evening is the perfect topper...

Have been coming here for many years. The food is always good and you can't beat the cheese bread. I would love to have the recipe for the cream sauce used in the shrimp scampi.

There options were actually quite limited. For a steak house, I expected more protein options. Further, the food was mostly pre-formed, not many freshly made options. And the items that were freshly made, seem to have been made days in advance and then placed in steam trays. Meh.

Dinner is always fantastic at the smoke House when one of the great bands is playing there tonight it was Steve Waddington doing his amazing assortment of Johnny Cash, Elvis and Neil Diamond and just a lot of great music from that time there were A lot of really good guest musicians and singers to including Dodger Elvis who was our favorite.

The worst service I’ve seen for a steak house.
You have to be famous or a certain look for them to service you.
Even the photographer didn’t come near our table but got All the surrounding tables. We didn’t fit their category I guess.
What shame for this place to be running a poor service.

Everything was going great, our waitress Yvonne was amazing very accommodating. Adam the Supervisor was rude, he asked us if we could hurry up and pay. We were dumbfounded because we haven’t received our check yet and we hadn’t orders dessert. Not 5 min later, he comes and asked us if we already paid yet?!? That when we did tell him that we have not received the bill yet and that he was being rude and we wanted an apology. He did apologize and gave us carrot for his rudeness.

Been eating here for over 50 years and eat here at least once/month. Always wonderful. The garlic bread has been my favorite since I was 3 years old and is of course the BEST! Happened upon a singer in the bar this last time who was really good. Will be back again soon.

This old steak house has seen better days. The “famous” garlic bread has some weird orange powdered cheese topping, and the food is just ok and a bit overpriced for what it is. The bar drinks are small with lots of ice, and not much booze in them. The ambience is true old school Hollywood, but a disappointing meal.

Our waitress and support staff were excellent. The hostess was absolutely horrible and rude. Shockingly so. We alerted the manager.
