The Polo Lounge has been the favorite breakfast spot and watering hole for generations of stars and Hollywood deal-makers. Guests enjoy indoor and outdoor seating for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and late-night suppers. Lunch and dinner are served with piano accompaniment alternating with light jazz on the patio during the long summer nights. Jazz music is also featured during Sunday Brunch. In the evening guests can come to relax and enjoy one of our many specialty cocktails or one of our old favorites.

"Everything you think it will be and more...food is incredible and the service impeccable. Yes, its pricey but worth every penny as you're also paying for a classic experience. I"d go again in a heartbeat."

Critically acclaimed chef David Burke focuses on locally-sourced, modern American food presented in the whimsical style that is his trademark. His menu emphasizes the highest quality vegetables, sustainable fish, beef and game birds. The restaurant’s spaces are designed by James Beard Award-winner Thomas Schlesser. The Treehouse Bar features seating that offers a birds-eye view of the bustling street below. There, you can enjoy handcrafted cocktails with pizzas, flatbreads, spreads and homemade sweet and savory snacks. Downstairs, the loft-like space is divided into a bar and dining room. The open kitchen and glass-enclosed wine cave allow guests a peek behind the scenes. Burke’s theatrical style is reflected in the carving station, where meats are carved and whole-roasted fish, lobster and casseroles are plated in the center of the dining room. David Burke Kitchen’s unparalleled outdoor space, opening in time for spring, has its own bar and seating for 130.

Tom Colicchio's Craft in New York City received the James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant nationwide in 2002 & five years later brought Craft across the country to join the other "top chefs" in Los Angeles. His new American dishes marry the finest ingredients, haute cuisine and family-style service. Under the execution of Chef de Cuisine Raymond England, Craft features produce from local organic farms, all-natural meats & day-boat seafood. With the award-winning architectural design of Bentel and Bentel & under the glow of filament bulbs, diners share dishes that celebrate 'single' ingredients, expertly & simply prepared. <br /><br><br><br />Awarded Three and a Half Stars by S. Irene Virbila of the Los Angeles Times, she states: <br /><br>“The menu offers a master class in contemporary American cuisine. You won’t find recipes with 17 ingredients or unnecessary frills. Each dish relies on simplicity & elegance, superb ingredients & expert execution to make its point."

"Amazing raw bar menu-- that is definitely the star of the show here. Rest of menu, while interesting, is good but not great. And the service was pleasant but inconsistent. Also... the decor could use a refurbish--carpet looks dirty, especially near the restrooms-- which also seem 'old'. Meal was good but have had better Bobby Flay experiences."
