The Tower Bar
Brunch! We love the salmon Benedict... amazing!
Great location and a fun place, great buzz, and ambiance ideal to take out of town friends for a Hollywood dinner.
The ambiance of this restaurant is incredible. It was raining and the atmosphere is so warm and welcoming. Food is always delicious and are the cocktails!
Tables to close, no privacy, and very loud
We ordered two cobb salads and they both came out incorrectly. My chicken was DRY. Two new salad were bettewr.
Great location. Low key but a lovely view. Decor is a little outdated.
Awful!!! Valentine’s Day set meal
Was worse than you would get at sizzler! Only it cost $200 each person. Have loved the place for years but it’s gone down hill so bad! Will never go back again! Shame on them! Awful food! Awful service!
An hour after our reservation time, our party still had no table, and our inquiries to the hostess met with a very rude attitude. When asked how much longer it would be, her answer was, "It depends on how long it takes people to eat." Great answer, thanks!
The hostess was awful and incredibly rude!!! We arrived on time for a 7:30 reservation and were not seated until 8:45. The manager was nice and accommodating but the hostess made no attempt to be polite or professional she was the absolute WORST!!!
One of the best spots in LA. Pricey, but fantastic vibe, exceptional service and the foot and cocktails are excellent.
Birthday dinner was fabulous. Ray was a great server.
I can’t recommend this place because my friends would have a fit if I even suggested they eat at a place that firstly sat you in a corner table for 4 people (we had reservations for 5 people so it was cramped) under a blasting air conditioner vent only to be told we weren’t allowed to move to a more appropriate table because they were completely booked and full (mind you all the bigger tables sat empty during our whole time there). Secondly, if that wasn’t enough they took forever to bring our drinks order and I had to remind them over and over again. Then the topper when my sister went to use the restroom noticed everybody else had a nice little bread basket on their tables with lovely pretzel bread and we weren’t even offered a crumb. I’m just not
Impressed. Food was sufficient but I don’t go out of my way for “sufficient”. Not st their prices and the general aura of this place is a downer - it was just too “I wanna be seen” for my like. I’m not into snobbery or vanity. It’s not my style. And honestly
I felt like they want to be down to earth - at least that is what the menu is saying with their Mac and cheese, fried chicken, pot pie style of food. And I love that! But they fail to follow through and take a snobby approach and it just doesn’t fit. At least not for me and I will not be back.
My favourite place ever.... like slipping back in time to pure glamor not glitz just understated glossy wood finish and white starched linen ... old school dishes - simple
But felt like a film star
The service, Max was our waiter, was outstanding. I am gluten and dairy free and Max made good suggestions.
It was a busy Friday night and the service and food were on time and delicious!
I love coming on my own and sitting at the bar as well.
As always, a great place to bring people from out of town. The hostess was lovely and immediately reseated us when were unhappy with our first table - darling bartender, waitress and even valet parkers! Delish food and cocktails peppered by a gorgeous crowd.
Love the Tower Bar. Great vibe. Good value. Perfect for a group of friends or a date.
I love the atmosphere here. Great staff. Great service!
Went out for dessert and a cocktail for girls night. We sat in the outdoor patio and the ambience was beautiful. Very romantic so perfect for a date night!
It was very nice. I don't have time for a full review, thank you.
Very cool place, aesthtic and romantic. Good service.. However the prices are insane. And I mean insane for the quality of food you get. You pay basically double for what the food is worth. The only thing from what we ordered that was at least unique and good enough for the price were the fries with added truffles.. Which was still a lot. Also be aware it's 13 dollars and hour for parking. And the only validate for one hour. There are plenty of other restaurants with better food for less..
Food was freezing sent back twice horrible horrible experience.
Tower still on top even without Dimitri, thank you!
The service was outstanding. When by accident the bottle of wine we were having was thrown away, the concierge approached us and told us about the incident, and even though our bottle had maybe one more serving left in it, he comped us a $200 bottle of red wine which my date and I thought was the best wine we've ever tasted. Without any hesitation, I enthusiastically recommend this place.
Place is a little dated but the room is still cool to sit in. The service was ok and the food ( 2 club sandwich) took forever. I’ll be bacj but to eat at the pool and in the sun.
Excellent service despite busy night and ambiance lovely. Enjoyed round corner table as requested.
Outstanding venue. Fantastic food. Service is always friendly and impeccable. It's a high quality dining experience.
Don't miss this!
We were looking forward to an intimate evening at Tower Bar. Things appeared to start off well with the hostess being able to accommodate my request for a corner table. Sadly, things went downhill from there. The bartender forgot one of our drinks, such that by the time the forgotten drink was served, it was piled high with ice and unmixed. Then dinner service (whereby the food was outstanding) came to disappointing conclusion in that both wines served (1/2 bottle with apps and full bottle with main course) were not served anywhere close the courses themselves. It's inexcusable for a restaurant to flub wine service so poorly. Not only were the wines served very late, but the red wine (unopened bottle) was served at room temperature, making me also question how they store their wine. I had really hoped that the evening would be filled with Hollywood magic; instead, alas it was more like a B-movie.
As a life long admirer of the famed Art Deco building it’s in I was disappointed that the Tower Bar itself didn’t reflect that. It was nicely appointed, much too dark and rather noisy. I do think that if you have to use your cell phone flashlight to read the menu something should be done. My wife and I were there to celebrate, in a quiet way, my birthday and were shown to quite possibly the worse table in the half full restaurant. I suggested we head to Musso Franks but then the very nice young lady found a table to our liking. The food? Good, not great. Pleasant enough until I got the check and realized we’d just spent a goodly sum on a mediocre meal. A birthday dinner to file under: Three and a half stars at best.
Always the perfect evening at the Tower Bar. Always!
Was in town to celebrate my 30th birthday and Tower Bar really rolled out the red carpet. Food and ambiance were on point but the service went above and beyond.
I’m constantly impressed by Gabby and the entire staff. Thank you for always making our experience so enjoyable!
Gracious service in an elegant setting. Arrived fairly late but they held the table and the service was extremely attentive and polite. Food was very good, highly recommend.
We have been patronizing this place for years since in our 20's, with gaps in between our visits, and each time we are reminded why we don't fancy this restaurant. Food and drinks are good, but the SERVICE-SERVICE-SERVICE is always consistently a miss, year-after-year! Our business meeting OpenTable rez was secured for 7:30 pm, we all showed-up well before our reservation time, and as usual, we didn't get seated until after 8:00 pm. I now have a reminder to not make the mistake again.
I travel often and I like to explore the hip, the luxurious, and the hidden places of the cities that I visit. The Tower Bar was a new experience for me. I had discovered its existence in an article written about Rothschild and I figured it would be worth a visit. The ambiance was excellent and I received the most wonderful service as I was given a little tour and a brief history of this auspicious building. I will be returning to dine here on my next visit to LA. Side note: the spicy tuna tartare was delicious!
1st visit dining here. My family had a lovely evening, the service was wonderful and the food was simply amazing. Great experience all around. Will dine here again.
Truly like eating out in New York. People are dressed - atmosphere is sophisticated, good menu for everyone to find something - not exotic - solid - traditional - gracious
One of the best restaurants there is, from food to ambiance. A must go. I’m a repeat customer.
I guess 3rd time wasn't a charm for me.
