On the sand at the base of the Huntington Beach Pier, enjoy memorable dining, endless ocean views, and simpler times at Duke's restaurant and Barefoot Bar. Relax and take in the view while you enjoy the Hawaiian beach house ambiance and savor the freshest seafood and prime steaks, uniquely prepared and thoughtfully served.

Carlitos Gardel Argentine Steakhouse is a family-owned and operated restaurant offering the finest in authentic Argentine cuisine and hospitality since 1996. With an extensive menu of personal family recipes from Buenos Aires, the restaurant serves only certified USDA prime cuts of grass-fed beef and sustainably sourced ingredients prepared the Argentine way. <br /><br />Sommelier Max Bozoghlian directs a multiple award-winning wine program showcasing the largest cellar of Argentine wines on the West Coast and several rare and boutique labels.<br /><br />Named in honor of Carlos Gardel—an iconic cultural figure in Argentine history and the paternal voice of tango—the restaurant was recently highlighted by Irene Virbila of the Los Angeles Times as one of the city’s top steakhouses. Its 1930s-inspired ambiance is a nod to the “Golden Age” of Buenos Aires and has been a favorite of many locals, celebrities, and Argentine visitors for years.<br />

Italian food lovers can rejoice: Emmy-Award winning celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis has opened her first-ever restaurant, GIADA inside The Cromwell.<br />This charming Las Vegas restaurant welcomes diners with warm colors, comfortable furniture and natural lighting thanks to the restaurant’s huge retractable windows. Guests can eat in the dining room, lounge or at window tables, boasting breathtaking views of the Bellagio fountains and Caesars Palace.<br />The menu will consist of Italian cuisine with refreshing, Californian influences. Menu items include lemon spaghetti, chicken cacciatore, marsala herb chicken meatballs, rosemary focaccia and lemon flatbread and vegetable Bolognese rigatoni. GIADA adds a lighter touch to Italian dishes, all while staying true to classic Italian recipes.<br />There will also be family-style options, along with a vegan and gluten-free menu. Desserts, like the lemon ricotta cookies and sorbets, serve as the perfect ending.

"Most the dishes we tried seemed to be very salty in taste. The dessert that we selected, the Chocolate tart with Hazelnut did not taste like Hazelnut, it tasted like it was made with Peanut Butter. Very disappointing. On top of that, I did not get my 100 points for making the reservation through Open Table, even after requesting the Host to make sure I get my points."

Only at SUSHISAMBA will you find a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, music and design. Hearty moquecas and colorful seviches are served alongside more inventive dishes, including Tuna Tataki and Wagyu Gyoza. Complementing the menu are signature cocktails made with exotic spirits such as shochu and cachaça and an acclaimed sake list, as well as wine, beer and champagne. Equal parts imagination and history, the SUSHISAMBA experience is truly unique.

 96th Street Bistro at Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel
96th Street Bistro at Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel
Many years ago, before the airport came to be, this area was known as Rancho Sausal Redondo, part of a large Mexican land grant. The land on which the hotel now sits was eventually leased to tenant farmers who grew wheat, barley and beans. In recognition of the heritage of this land, we present to you the 96th Steet Bistro, named after this "dry farming' site on Airport and 96th Street. The 96th Street Bistro features only California cuisine which is a reflection of the diversity and ingenuity of the people of California with a fusion of food from all over the world. But with a twist of local ingredients. With over half of the entire nation's fruits and vegetables grown in California, we decided we had all the ingredients we needed right in our backyard. Committed to serving only the freshest ingredients provided by local farmers and ranchers, the 96th Street Bistro promises bold and imaginative dishes, so you can be sure you're enjoying extraordinary California cuisine.

From the moment you walk into Samba, you know for sure this isn't your father’s steakhouse! A dizzying array of sizzling, fire-roasted meats, ranging from Picanha (Brazilian beef sirloin) and tender pork loin, to savory sausages, chicken and lamb, are skewered, slowly roasted over an open flame and then expertly carved right at your table. And as if that wasn’t enough, the mouthwatering churrascaria feast won’t stop until you say so! We pair our succulent meats with an extensive buffet featuring salads, soups, and freshly prepared hot and cold side dishes. Churrascaria roughly translates from the Portuguese word for barbecue, and is a centuries old culinary tradition. At Samba, we honor the traditional rodi ⁄zio feast, while infusing it with new and unexpected tastes inspired by the pulse and energy of Brazilian culture. Our newly renovated space, perched on the edge of the ocean, is the perfect backdrop to our fabulous foods and inventive cocktails. <br />
