We went two couples for dinner on Saturday night. The room is lovely and the view is delightful. (The Getty Center fine dining restaurant is one floor above the cafeteria.) The very nice waitress took our drink and wine order after we waited more than ten minutes, as she seemed very busy with a couple of other larger tables. But... More

We were able to have a very nice dining experience in the middle of our Getty Center visit. While not pretentious, the food is very well prepared and unique. I had a great Walla Walla onion gratin, which was super, followed by a risotto, in which the dish had been cooked using only Parmesan! It was an amazingly rich flavor... More

But this is Getty style, and range from the restaurant is plentiful and the views of the Santa Monica Mtn is beautiful. Despite long queues everything ran relatively smoothly.The alternative is to visit one of the many cafes in the area.

We only had lunch at the restaurant but it was amazing. We were told they pride themselves on acquiring whatever is locally available and creating wonderful dishes from it. I had possibly the best gazpacho ever and another member of our party tried the parmesan risotto which was to die for!! My snapper entree was cooked perfectly and seasoned with... More

As my review title suggests, I wasn't impressed with this restaurant. While they do have a lot of choices for food, they are expensive and not that particularly good.

The location is very nice and a nice place to relax and enjoy meals/snacks. The choice of food/drinks are O.K but the ambience is lovely.

Service and food are first rate. The setting is not intimate, but it is pleasant, and evening sunsets can be wonderful. If the temperature is right the best views are afforded with the outdoor dining option, but be careful as it can be breezy.

You are going to the Getty and you need to eat. Why not try the restaurant ? Expert service and a great view. Would I go if I was not at the museum? Doubtful. But do plan to add the restaurant on to your trip. You will not be disappointed. Pictures are brunch service.

This place is more fancy than your average lunch/brunch location, so do expect to pay more for less and do hold it to a higher scale when you rate the restaurant. You're not getting your in-n-out pricing here for the fancy item menus that is offered here so lets lay that foundation down. That being said, the food is acceptable... More

If you've ever been to the Getty center you know how amazing it is but you also know how much of an effort it takes to get up there. So just a word of advice: if you have a lunch or dinner date and think you will be on time by simply arriving to the center before taking the journey... More
