The Tower Bar Ratings and Reviews
The ambiance was great, food very good and food service good but the front desk was awful. I came early (5:30)before my friend arrived and warned to have a drink at the bar or at the table and was refused (absolutely, I could only go to a "lounge" where there were no people and waited 15 minutes to exactly 6:00 to be seated at the bar where they hadn't even finished setting up
We have gone to Sunset Tower more times than I can count. We have always had the best experience. Tonight was the absolute WORST!!! My family and I will never return, unless we receive an apology from their food and beverage director. She was outright nasty. My husband and I will be contacting her superior tomorrow. Couldn’t be more disappointed. Sunset Tower was our “Cheers” not any more!!! 😞
We went for a Christmas meal at 2:15. The web site was misleading, as the lunch menu does not open, so I thought that the dinner menu would be available at that time. I even called to clarify, as we were looking for something festive. The person on the phone said that the specials started at 4; the regular menu would be available at our reserved time. In fact, only a fairly minimalist lunch menu was available. The food was good, but not festive. Sundaes were the only choice for dessert. It was pleasant, but not the experience we were hoping for, despite some effort on my part to validate this prior to the day.
The Tower Bar has always been one of my favorite places in LA.
The service and food used to be exquisite.
On Christmas Eve, however, I found it to be disappointing.
Even though I had made a reservation, we were made to wait at the bar for 1,5 hours, where we paid a steep 50$ for 2 martinis. Once we were seated I could tell that Dimitri did not recognize me even though I used to be a regular and treated me very impersonal.
Our waiter Jim was great and attentive as always but unfortunately the food was very mediocre.
The spicy tuna wasn’t spicy, the medium rare steak was cooked through, the sauce didn’t go with the meal, and the mashed potatoes were bland. The truffle fries had too much truffle and were too greasy.
All in all, not the Christmas I had hoped for.
Might have to find a new favorite place in LA...
We went for Christmas Eve and it was superb in every way. Busy, but the staff were completely at their best, the food great.
The ambience for the Holiday evening was perfect as well. it could not have been better. This is my second time there, having opened and closed the restaurant one evening a month or so ago. The Manager and his staff are really to be commended.
I took my boyfriend here last year for his birthday and we had an amazing time. So I brought him back again this year, and it was just as wonderful. Barbara Cameron made sure we were well taken care of. And Billy, the waiter, was just perfect--attentive, nice in a low-key way, smart about the food and wine. Very happy we came. We'll be back.
I took a friend to the Tower Bar for her birthday. The staff was incredibly attentive. The fried chicken was delicious and would gave any restaurant in the south a run for their money. The sundaes were amazing, we really enjoyed picking all of the toppings. Lovely ambience, great food.
The Tower Bar is one of my favorite restaurants. The ambience is great as is the service and the food. You can't beat Dimitri for matre'd - he always makes you feel special. The service is always professional - there when you need them and otherwise very inconspicuous. I have been going to The Tower bar for years and it never disappoints.
Thanksgiving dinner at the Tower Bar at the Sunset Tower Hotel. Always a treat, and this time was no exception. Wonderful service from the moment we arrived. Amazing view, delicious traditional Thanksgiving menu, and top notch staff made it a memorable evening.
Very unhappy as I was put in the annex restaurant as clearly too busy in the main room but without asking or telling me. Then they were so inefficient they didn’t check me in so opentable were told I wasn’t there. And because I was in the side Restaurant that was half empty the food was poor /cold and service slow. I wish I had gone to eat somewhere else. And I have been before. RR.
I was a guest at the Sunset Towers, and had dinner on the Terrace, poolside with an expansive view of Los Angeles. We ordered the scallops and chicken pot pie, both were delicious. The wine menu was extensive. Our server offered suggestions, and was well informed. At brunch the next day, we were seated at the same Terrace table we'd had the night before. The hostess said she knew we enjoyed that spot. That personal touch goes a long way with me. We'll be back.
I always look forward to the scene at Tower Bar and maitre d Dimitry’s theatrics, my link to old Hollywood..That said, the food is alway great all though the menu. It is very expensive (glass of house champagne: $34; steak or lamb $50++) but it was packed on Saturday despite a Dodger playoff game. Here’s why Tower Bar is the safest place to eat: Dennis Rodman hangs out there so theNorth Koreans are unlikely to target the place!!
