My partner and I ordered a drink ~30mins prior to closing. Shortly after, we were asked to move outside as the closing time approached (which we found reasonable). Not even a minute later, she and I were out on the patio and two staff members approached us somewhere aggressively. We engaged in a brief conversation (still sober) about how the... More

Came here for lunch as we wanted to say we'd visited. We opted for sandwiches one with fries and one with salad. The salad was basic but whose bothered just for lunch?! I was really enjoying my Philly cheese steak sandwich and got half way through when I found a hair in it. I must admit it knocked me sick.... More

So much history at this place, the food is great and you never know just who you might run into. This is the happening place to be.

Loved this place. We went for an early dinner. The food and drinks were great and so was the atmosphere. I hadn't been in a rock bar before but really liked it!

I came there because Lemmy, you know; but it does have a special ambiance anyway: people were nice, I had a surrealistic chat with a cool drunk guy about motorbikes accidents, Styx and whatnot. I sipped my Jack n' coke and it felt just swell, I'd go there again anytime. Long live Rock n' Roll !!

Having always wanted to see the Rainbow, we stopped for lunch on our way through town. The place looks & smells like it hasn't changed in 30 years and that's the way it should be. Iconic places should keep their historical charm. The server was friendly and the pizza was decent and the valet parking was free. Highly recommend for... More

This was a must stop for us, or son loves the band Motorhead so we had to stop here so he could see Lemmy's favorite hangout. He even got to sit in Lemmy's favorite chair!

Been here before. Food is fine. It's the atmosphere/ambiance that I find interesting This particular visit was very different from my other visits. Usually the service is steady and the food is reliable however my last visit last week our female server with dark hair was so confusing because throughout the dinner from the time she took our order she...

Always had a burger at Rainbow room whenever I made it to LA - but this time it was so mediocre I'm not sure I'll come again. The service was great, but the food seemed just careless: the salad was tasteless, the fries limp, the burger far from awsome. Sad, because the place is special.

An Icon of the Sunset Strip! I have been coming here since the mid 70's (with a fake ID of course). They have amazingly good pizza! It's a quick walk from my office so not bad for a lunch hour. Sure it's touristy but in the best Rock n Roll kinda way.

Thank Cyndi L W
