It's that simple. Great wait staff. Horrid food. Very accommodating and pleasant and plentiful wait staff. In fact we had about 6 waiters because there were 2 waiters in training shadowing our servers. We weren't quote sure how many servers we actually had. - Something like 6. The food sad to say was really bad. It just didn't jell. And... More

We ate here when staying at a nearby hotel. We ate a sort of tapas style meal, having several different small dishes, each one really enjoyable. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. It appears to be popular with locals which us usually a good sign. I'd definitely recommend this little gem if you're staying in the area.

Great little restaurant, serving french style cuisine, reasonable priced and excellent food. Lively in the evenings from 6pm onwards and definitely worth a visit if you are staying locally.

We was staying at a hotel nearby and decided to give this a try . The experience from start to finish was terrible . We had to wait 10 mins before anyone even acknowledged us and came to serve . Our appetisers then came and we had been given no cutlery. It took an age to get someone to bring... More

Ordered snails, followed by filet mignon for my main course. Both were gorgeous. Certainly didn't regret the hour long Uber ride to Hollywood after eating at La Poubelle. Delicious!

The restaurant is nicely decorated and the food is really good (we had the confit de canard and the boeuf bourguignon) but unfortunately there was not nearly enough to eat! It's a shame, especially when the food is this good!

We were staying in this neighbourhood which is awesome by the way and were told about this restaurant. Is it being from Montreal and having lived in Paris that made me harsh in my appreciation of this place? Or was the timing poor...we were there at the very beginning of the new year... It took three tries to get a... More

I really liked this place! It’s just what you want in a warm, easy neighborhood bistro. No frou-frou, all joie de vivre! The comfort menu is a smile inducing cliché of every old standard you would ever want—from escargots, coq au vin and steak-frites to mousse au chocolat. If you need minceur, nitrogen or sous vide, you’re in the wrong... More

Tradition French Bistro in L.A. the ambiance of the restaurant is very welcoming and laid back. The food was very tasty especially the crispy Brussel Sprout leaves - veg that most people don't like is made lovable at LaPoubelle. It was so tasty, we had 2 orders! The Confit de Canard made me happy and the simple Pain et beurre... More

I went as a guest of two newly-weds who frequent La Poubelle and, for me, it was a glamorous occasion. The restaurant appears to be mostly lit by candlelight. I removed my glasses: as I do in a movie house, when the screen is up. My eyes slowly adjusted, and I was able to recognise an interior as familiar as... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
