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 main course was great. The dessert was so so.... like a sorbet was so icy kinda just different then it should be. The bar ran out of oysters, but we were fine with that.

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.
