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.

We are now open daily for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is offered six nights a week, Monday-Saturday. We are unable to guarantee a seating preference of indoors or outdoors. We recommend a sweater or light coat during the evenings.

    I had to wait for two hours by the bar with my girlfriends with credit card reservation at this restaurant. Manager and hostess keep saying that we are very busy on Saturday night and we will get you when table will be available. It’s absolutely unplsant experience and food was average, nothing special for high price.

    Barbra is warm and welcoming. Sat by the pool and had a club sandwich. Tony was my server and couldn’t have been better. Wonderful brunch.

    Been coming for years. Usually solid and good food in a sexy atmosphere at equally expensive LA spots like this. Went for Brunch on a Saturday and pretty much everything was not good. Bloody Mary watery, eggs Benedict mediocre at best, side potato's dry. My gf got Salmon Poke'. Quality of fish was good and fresh, but the rice was dry and plate uninspired. Disappointed but still hungry, we ordered chocolate chip pancakes and they looked great, but we're just bad texture and hard to cut. It's like none of the food had any love. I really usually enjoy this restaurant. I really hope I just got a bad day and they rebound back. I shared my insights w the waiter and he was glad I did because the staff is great and prides themselves on delivering a great experience. Fingers crossed although I probably won't rush back.

    The food was fine, but sub-par for the prices. Service was nice but the dining room was incredibly dark and the clientele was somewhat obnoxious.

    Honestly, kinda overpriced and run down for what it was. It's a decent spot for dinner, but honestly there are much better places to have lunch. Wouldn't go back. $250 for two of us with a couple of salads and a few cocktails each. I left feeling meh.

    The worst most over hyped place and over priced place. Waited 1 hour and didn't get food. Club sandwich smothered in spicy mustard sucked. Never got food and didn't even get discount. The worst. Just go for pictures and leave if you need to check it out.

    Their seating areas are not very comfortable. The food was not very good. The service is odd. And it is expensive. A chinese chicken salad, a grilled cheese sandwich, two glasses of wine, and $120 later without a tip.

    I had another great night at Tower Bar/Sunset Tower. Even though it was a busy Friday night, there was still room at the bar for me to have a drink as I waited for my guest to arrive. I don't know how they do it, but the chicken pot pie is so good.

    TB is the perfect afternoon bite in an iconic and unhurried setting. I love how casual yet sophisticated the vibe and staff are. My fellow patrons were the perfect mix of class and flash. My cocktail was perfect. And my lunch raised a new bar for what a club sandwich can achieve. So good! I’m not crazy about the fries. I prefer 100% spud. These have that weird crispy coating.

    Absolutely Love the Tower! One of the best in LA! They were able to seat us on the Left side after initially seating us poolside which I only prefer for lunch. We just waited and had a drink while they got a table ready for us. I very much appreciate the staff accommodating my request. We had friends visiting from out of town and I wanted them to experience the true magic of the Tower! Thanks for an amazing evening.

    A nice, scene-y Sunset bar. The food wasn't incredibly impressive for the price, but it has good ambiance and service. Might be best to go for drinks.

    Wonderful ambience as I remembered, and I wanted to love the food. Bar tender was great and followed up on our delayed table. Our server barely visible and hardly spoke. Long wait for our reservation. Food was awful - steak ordered medium came back mooing, branzino was charred, everything was over salted and over cooked, bone dry Brussels and fingerling potatoes. Maybe this is the kinda spot you just opt for the burger?

    We used to love this place so much. But the food quality has really gone down. Unfortunately, the prices have not. We paid a fortune for food that was incredibly mediocre. Stale bread, smelly fish, very disappointing especially at this price point. Fortunately, the ambience is still beautiful and the drinks are still great but I won’t be coming back anytime soon.
