Looking for something special in Hollywood, but was very disappointed. Ordered coq au vin and penne with vodka cream. Both meals were excessively salty and unoriginal. The atmosphere resembled an Irish pub, dark and suffocating. Wait staff were friendly and cheerful but this didn't make...More

Menu prices on the internet and on the table did not match. Starters and main courses came at the same time. I ordered my steak as medium and it came as rare/medium rare. The steak was cold inside. Staff was awesome.
