The Terrace at the famous Sunset Tower Hotel debuted a new look in May of 2018, featuring a refreshed outdoor dining experience with updated furnishings and an elegant new bar. The Tower Bar Restaurant has split views of the city from either side of the lobby. It offers a swank lounge, bar and an al fresco dining experience. Custom made banquettes line the windows that showcase an unparalleled view of the Los Angeles skyline. Art deco design influences include walnut with gold inlay trim in a subtle, muted color scheme. The delectable menu features California Bistro with Italian fare. A dress code is enforced, please call for information.

**As we navigate through these uncertain times, we are open for dinner service on our outdoor Terrace and pool deck ONLY Tuesday-Saturday and offer a limited lunch menu weekends on the Terrace. We recommend a sweater or light coat during the evenings. We will resume our regular expanded menu and business hours for both lunch and dinner soon!

The food and service was excellent! A friend and I just completed our road trip down to the CA coast to LA and we were able to make a reservation just minutes before the available time slot. The hostess was super sweet and made us feel very comfortable and welcome even though we were in our workout gear. Major relief! We just wanted to eat, since we were both hangry after that drive. I got the burger with fries and sure it hit the spot. Even though the skies were somewhat smokey, the view was still great! Our server along with the service staff were very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu/beverage items. We can’t wait to visit again! Perhaps we’ll get a room next time :)

It is quiet and super private.
The view was amazing. Everything was super comfortable. The food was very well presented, however was not mind blowing taste wise. We did visit during covid 19 so I think they were on a limited menu. We will most definitely try it again when we return next time.

Tower Bar has been magically transformed and the dining experience, service and safety that the hotel afforded us was beyond. The experience was incredible and transported all of us back to a different time. The band playing by pool and lit up with candles everywhere was so special. It was an experience I will not forget. Wonderful evening.

Great views, live music (at least on Thursday night), very good service / attentive staff. The food itself is nothing special at all - fried calamari, hummus, fries, burgers, some salads, a few fish options - and highly-highly overpriced. Would not recommend this place if you’re looking for a great food, but it’s a very cute place for drinks / light bar food, ambiance and good service. Located inside of the hotel.

Went during our recent brush fires... visibility was bad because of the smoke. Not the restaurants fault. On a clear day gorgeous LA views. Salmon was overcooked not much flavor but I guess you go here for the views not the food.

The restaurant is currently available/open using the poolside terrace. I love the rack of lamb and shrimp cocktail. I was disappointed in the dessert offering of ice cream sundaes or cookies only. The coffee is good. There was a company Birthday party in front of us, so, noisy and distracting this evening, but I could still hear the jazz combo, which is very relaxing. Not quite the same experience as last January, but no place is anymore.

Thank you Angel for the great service. Unfortunately, we went during a heat wave it was extremely hot. We did our best to enjoy the view and not concentrate on the heat.

Asked for a well done on filet mignon came back way too over cooked, edges were hard on filet. Asked for a cocktail as well & waitress forgot about it. However, their dessert sundae was delicious.

They don’t have full menu yet post reopening. If you’re vegan don’t go here. The chef couldn’t even accommodate a simple avocado toast even though he had everything on the menu separately. Slice of bread and mashed avo??? So simple.

We were slotted for a 2 hour time slot by the restaurant but they let the party prior to us stay over their time by over 39 minutes and then it took the restaurant over 29 minutes to start to clear the table so we left. The employees were rude.
