Since 1995, passion and devotion keeps Locanda Portofino one of the most authentic Italian restaurants on the westside. Where freshness and quality collaborate to create traditional such as egg tagliatelle bolognese, flavorful Neapolitan meat ragu, exotic spaghetti with sea urchin

"Always consistently great meals and knowledgeable waiters. Wonderful and complimentary wines to match a quality meal. The veal chop is hard not to keep ordering as it is prepared so perfectly. Only complaint was I ordered Sea bass and it came out first and was already cooled down from the kitchen ."

At Connie and Ted’s you’ll find simply prepared fish and shellfish, inspired by the classic clam shacks, oyster bars, and fish houses, that dot the New England Seaboard and the Western Coast.<br /><br />Enjoy one (or two) of 24 California craft beers on tap, while sampling from our large variety of oysters, clams and shellfish, shucked to order, at our Raw Bar. Wind down the day with a classic cocktail at the bar, or enjoy a warm lobster roll outside on the covered, open-air patio overlooking Santa Monica Boulevard.<br /><br />

"How special and different. Everything was fantastic and the whole concept was so different for California it indeed felt like you were on the Atlantic coast. Lobster rolls were excellent, although we favored the hot with butter over the cold, but wouldn't be disappointed with either. The white chowder was very solid and tasty. Normally I prefer the red as white is thick and much richer in taste and calories but this version was not too rich or heavy creamed,just delicious. Fried clams for an appetizer were a great treat. Loved the whole menu and service was attentive and helpful. Can't wait to return. Only complaint was the lobster rolls were slightly small for the price, but we are talking LOBSTER, so I get it. Major yum!"

The Ivy’s tropical counterpart, Ivy at the Shore, offers the same delicious food plus icy island drinks, a 12-seat bamboo bar and beaut surfside view. Don’t miss the sunset over the Pacific with a Fresh Pineapple Daiquiri or two.

"We have been to the Ivy many times but stop going lately as the food had slipped terribly and it was far from the original in the city. Friends had recently gone there and said the food was greatly improved and was worth trying again. Unfortunately, they sat us inside in the front. As they evening wore on, the noise level kept any table conversation impossible to hear and the room was extremely hot and uncomfortable. The food was vastly improved and were the new prices! On the way out, we noticed the rest of the place was quite comfortable and noise was much more moderate. I would not go back on a weekend and without being seated outside or toward the front."

"Our first visit was near opening of the restaurant and was very loud and crowd was more bar scene noisey. We have since come back twice and learned to go early in the week and found the service,food and noise level very acceptable. I believe they continue to refine the menu and keep their offerings interesting. What they offer is done extremely well and the room is a wonderful atmosphere to dine and converse."

"Third time there and people are clearly finding out this is a good place to eat. After a rather slow start, the place was packed and the crowd was younger and more vibrant. They still could use a couple of different and more varied entres, but the place is happening."

Why do we call ourselves LG's Prime Steakhouse? Quite simply because PRIME is the best by any standard. PRIME steaks have the necessary marbling, that imparts a unique combination of taste and texture which defines the ultimate steak-eating experience. Owner Gail Greenberg presides over every detail to ensure that quality and service will exceed expectations. Serving only USDA Prime beef, dry aged on the premises. Highlights from the menu include the "Jewel in the Crown" our 24 oz dry aged porterhouse, the enormous 32 oz bone-in ribeye. 4 and 8 bone Colorado rack of lamb and fresh seafood. Winner of Zagats "Best steak in town" award and a permanent fixture on Tom Horan's top ten list.

"Whenever in the desert, we always leave a night and-an empty stomach to fill up on the consistent and scrumptious steaks and sides offered at LG's. We never leave without enough leftovers to remind us of our great meal the following day as we bring home our "doggie bag". Great meal and fun dining"
