Featuring one of the best views in Los Angeles, The Restaurant at the Getty Center offers a fine dining menu in a simple and elegant setting. The Restaurant's Chef focuses on using the freshest local and regional ingredients and presenting them beautifully and tastefully. The Mediterranean-California inspired menu utilizes global influences to create an experience that is delicious, ambitious and creative. A distinctive wine list and full bar are also available. <br /><br />The menu is market driven, using produce from local growers and the Santa Monica farmer's market. The Chefs have worked closely with local farmers to ensure the best possible product. Careful attention is given to sustainability with regards to seafood. The menu changes weekly to keep up with market changes as well as seasonal changes. Food service at the Getty Center is managed by the Bon Appétit Management Company.

"The food and service here do not have to be great because the setting is spectacular. But the food and service are, indeed, great. The menu is imaginative without being cute, and well prepared. Our server, Siso, was attentive, professional and -- bonus -- charming! It's a special experience to have amidst the whole experience of the art and ambiance."

"The atrium patio is charming and hints of Spain without the kitsch décor. The guitarist was excellent, not only in talent but also knowing the right levels for the amps. The server was very friendly but still professional."
