If you're celebrity hunting, by all means. This review will only address the restaurant part of it, which has the worst service I've experienced in a long time. Sat at the bar. Diners to my left, diners to my right. Perhaps it's because the servers...More

Craig's feels like you've traveled back in time to the days of Sinatra and Monroe. The old Hollywood charm of the tables, mood lighting, decor, etc make for a beautifully unique experience, but the real stand out about this experience is the food. Expensive comfort...More
