Lovely server. So dear and personal. The staff made everyone feel special on Easter. Ran into lots of pals too.
Eggs Benedict and the smoked salmon plate marvelous.
Cheeseburger was mediocre. Needed a more seasoned, grilled approach. Otherwise great. Sundaes always such a great finale!!

A great place to have brunch. It was bright, the staff was attentive and the food was excellent. I almost hate to give a great review as I want to keep this gem to myself.

Been there several times during the last 4 years.

Earlier experiences far better than this one.

Food was boring and below medium quality.

Waiter forgot the wine for the starters.

My reservation was at 8:45 , but we had to wait almost one hour to get our table. Than, the waiter was not available until I had to waive and ask for menu. The bar was crowded and there was no place to sit .

Arrived on time , hostess took us to sit in some back area never seen before , when we asked to be in the main dining room , they said there is a 20 to 30 mins wait , while they sat us 50 mins later . Meat arrived over cooked , delaying our dinner even further to change the order again while one of my guests are his meat overdone .
Hostesses at door very rude and pretentious , when I would speak to her she would just look down without answering . Should have had Angelina Jolie at my table maybe for them to be respectful and friendly . That age is long gone , wake up Tower Bar .

Your vegan options are average at best. It’s no longer good enough to have a stellar meat eating menu and a couple of average token vegan options. You need a top quality vegan chef to update your menu. Love the ambiance. Love the history. But as vegans, we wouldn’t spend that kind of money again on your vegan menu. Thanks

Lamb was a disaster twice and as he had to be sent back twice it spoiled the evening with my daughter. The waitress could not have been more apologetic and nicer so saved the day. It shows people do matter and will be back.

Years of memories and special occasion moments destroyed in one horrible experience at the Tower last night. Despite pleas, we were seated in the bar next to a loud ukelele band for our 11th wedding anniversary and celebrating the birth got our first child. It was like being on a cheap cruise and I will never return. Food has slipped, service was off, prices are crazy for dinner when surrounded by drinkers and business meetings at 715pm.

This is my second time eating here in the last few weeks and both times I've had reservations and waited over 45 minutes and we were still not seated that we ended up eating in the lobby waiting area. This restaurant should be removed from Open Table for not homering reservations. The excuse that gave me was pathetic. Never waste time here again.

Always welcome place for my visits from out of town.

Bartenders are experts and friendly.

Food — even at the bar- is exceptional.

And the coziness is hard to best.

"A classy, sophisticated Los Angeles haunt that perfectly tops off a day in LA. Unlike some places in this town that have an occasional air of arrogance about them, The Tower Bar keeps it easy, inviting and effortlessly elegant. Stunning views of the city, the suavest of ambiences, and simple to make a reservation. Gabby has a penchant for finding the perfect table for two... or ten. Take the Moscow Mule, take in the scene, and let the gentle jazz wash over you, as you remember why the Angels chose to reside here."
