The Tower Bar Ratings and Reviews
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!!
This is on of our favorite resturants in the entire country. We always have a great experience there with terrific food and service. The Lobster Cobb Salad is terrific as is most all things on the menu. The seating and noise level allow you to have a personal conversation while enjoying the ambiance.
Interesting decor, like going back in time to the 1940ies - but in a good way. Interesting crowd frequents this place. Easy to get an interesting conversation with strangers going, not too noisy.
Food is very much overpriced ($31 for a small-ish burger and fries).
Made reservation here for my birthday dinner celebration. While having a drinks, we wanted to order some appetizers to munch on. The waitress who waited our table said that we need to order appetizer and entrees at the same time. WTF? Is she too fat or too lazy to make several trips to take our orders? Quality of food is decent, but portion is small for its price. Not even a cookie or small dessert offer from the Tower Bar, knowing full well in my reservation that it was my birthday dinner.
What a bunch of losers!
You MUST request the dining room. If not, you'll be seated on the Terrace, which is absolutely not the ambiance you're looking for. We were in the dining room the first time and loved it but most recently got out at the terrace and it was a waste of a night out. Ambiance there is tourists in what kind of feels like an airport lounge, while the dining room feels like old 1930s LA.
Second time at the Tower Bar....have to say, I think is it highly and very very average....The food is not interesting, the service is super attentive in the beginning and then the waiter disappears for 20 minutes....I didn't come to see celebs, and if I had, I would be disappointed. Very much an older crowd...The wine by the glass list is very small and not particularly interested. Valet is $12...all in all, it was not worth the $200 for 2 glasses of wine each, a shared appetizer, shared entree, fries, no dessert or coffee....go somewhere else for a special occasion!
Pretty stuffy atmosphere. Not only was it literally too warm in the restaurant, the staff is not the friendliest. The "no photo" policy was ridiculous, especially since I asked the server to take a photo of our group in our booth. She told me the hostess would take our photo in the lobby instead. When I asked the hostess, she said the photo had to be taken on the front drive. Really?! For a tab over $500, I don't see the value. We could've gone plenty of other upscale places and had a picture taken in an air conditioned room.
Greeted by longtime Maitre D Dimitry, Tower Bar is always an interesting place to take out of town guests or entertainment related people with whom you are doing business. If you don't mind paying over $100 per person for a good meal, Tower Bar's menu is diverse enough for a finicky eater or an executive who is a glutton with an expense account. I found the fried chicken excellent; my better half loved the rack of lamb and our guest wolfed down a large grilled fish. The wine list is diverse as is dessert. All in all a pleasant way to spend 2-3 hours in the company of like-minded souls.
