Just superb in every way, Dennis looked after us , lovely guy & very good service
Amazing experienced-really loved it -my new favorite restaurant in Los Angeles!
Great experience. A dark, warm environment, simple food done right and excellent service. The food was crazy overpriced, but kinda worth it when you take everything into consideration - the ambience, decor, service, history etc., Possibly the best roast chicken I've ever had.
Great food great service
When I book the restaurant for dinner I don’t expect to be seated outside in a marquee.
Extremely poor service! I made reservations three weeks ahead. Arrived early for reservation. Was seated one hour past reservation time, only after I complained and said I was leaving. I watched numerous tables being sat without reservations. Many people were upset as I wasn’t the only one being pushed aside.
I love it here. It’s the best all around
Had a wonderful time - as usual. The Tower Bar is LA's most elegant dining spot. It's chic, understated, and reeks of old Hollywood glamour.
Food was mediocre and a bit overpriced. Ambiance is great and romantic as always.
Great space, great service, great time. Very reliable!
Night was ruined
There was a fixed menu of $165 per person for food that generously would come out to $75 on any other night. And nobody told us ahead of time there was a prix fixe menu. It wasn't disclosed on Open Table. When we arrived, the hostess told us to go back and someone would meet us and seat us. We did as told and nobody arrived so we took a seat. The place was empty and we were the only ones there. So we sat in a decent place. A waiter gave us menus, served water and then a maitre d came over and asked us who sat us there. We said nobody was around, so we sat ourselves. He moved us to another place because of some reason. In the new seats (lame, away from the piano, away from the windows) we endured two change overs of primary waiter (normally not a big deal). The entire night, we were served the wrong courses, we were served without explanation of what things were -- blah blah, first world problems, I know, but for the hard core price, you would think they'd polish it up A LOT. I could go on, but I've invested enough in this experience. (e.g who serves oysters with onions as an appetizer on Valentines Day? How tonally off key can you get?)
Our server was AMAZING!! She made the whole night so enjoyable.
Love this place.
Amazing place and great for birthday dinner. Really over exceeded expectations
Cristos, our server, was a true gentleman and an asset to the establishment / hotel. He set an accommodating tone from the outset, and certainly made our evening and experience exponentially better. Not that I don’t love this place, and frequent it, but this was the first time we had the great fortune to meet Cristos, and I would encourage all of you to request him if you go.
Cocktails - Moscow Mule & The Tower were delicious
Starter - Crab Cakes - one of the best I’ve had in LA.
Entree’s - scallops - amazing. Huge, perfectly cooked / prepared, and delicious.
Fillet Mignon - ordered just a little over medium, and while it was cooked perfectly temperature-wise, the cut I had was lacking flavor. Strange as it Hadn’t been an issue in the past, but a minor thing overall.
Sundae bar desert is one of my fave options in this town, and an old school treat.
Dimitri - the Sunset Tower legend - was welcoming and accommodating as always, and it was a pleasure to see you again sir!
Great atmosphere, great experience, and highly recommended if you’ve never had the pleasure.
Sexy crowd fun energy
Terrible table in dark lounge. Would not seat us in the main dinning room. We left.
It was great food, great atmosphere & great service
This place has, sadly, gone way downhill. We had rude and inconsiderate service from the moment we were seated until the final bill arrived. If you want slow, incompetent, uncaring and inattentive service of mediocre fare, this is your place! And it isn’t the first time, either. This was us giving a second chance after a similar experience last year.
Amazing service. Wonderful table. Excellent food. One of our favorites.
Best food and even better staff!! This is my go to place in all of LA
The only negative was that we were not seated promptly disputed there being empty gtAnles. The food is great. The restaurant is dimly lite and has an old school vibe. We eat there quite frequently and it never disappoints.
Outstanding atmosphere. Transported to heaven with the Art Deco decor and fantastic view. Food was delicious, zucchini chips light as air, veggie quinoa plate yummy and Orlando was awesome waiter. Will become part of my LA itinerary for sure.
I love the tower bar
Fantastic atmosphere, great food, excellent cocktails. However, an hour wait WITH a reservation is unacceptable .
Just overall great. Always a treat, always great food, always great service. My favorite restaurant in LA.
Never going back
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
Tower Bar is charming and has a great feeling of elegance, from the decor, to the view and
the staff. None of which would matter if the food wasn't excellent, which it is. Everything is beautifully done.
Sur restaurant 1/13 tonight party four 8:00?
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!!! 😞
New Years Eve set menu sounded much better than it tasted. We like the surroundings but the food needed more attention.
NYE at The Tower was exceptional! Pre fixed options were delivered hot and the service on point.
Sophisticated, buzzy, beautiful room, attentive service, excellent food with wide ranging menu.
Food surprisingly very average. Loud busy night but was Xmas night. Good atmosphere. Fun evening. Expensive considering food quality
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.
