It was like going to our favourite restaurant at home. Wonderful food!! Sea scallops to start, rack of lamb and swordfish in the middle and lava cake to... More

We've visit LA every year, and every year we stop here, and not only have a very good meal, we have a fabulous time. This place know how to make you feel at ease. And the prices are reasonable. The best bargain of all our stops in the city. Our LA foodie friends (you all know the type) had never... More

A friend was showing us around the city and made reservations here. We had a great booth right next to the bar and could watch all the camaraderie between staff and patrons. Everyone was happy and the waiters seemed to know most of the people who came through the door. Definite recommendation in my eyes. They had great drinks and... More

The atmosphere is half the experience. It's like a Paris Bistro spilling out onto the street..white paper covering tables set with off white table cloths, small sparkling candles. Inside wall paper depicting French architectural scenes make a perfect backdrop for any event, celebration or just a dinner with friends. The food is excellent and tasty...service was OK but not overly... More

I mean the scene is an older crowd but super busy and friendly. I had the madras curry and it was so bad. I mean the chicken was flavored well but it was a Mexican curry and not Indian. It was so bad I giggled. Sorry. Buddy had the risotto. Too much cheese. Anyhow we still had a good time... More

My brother-in-law and his partner suggested Cafe D'Etoile for breakfast / brunch when we visited West Hollywood last weekend. The bloody mary's hit the spot / whetted our appetites, and fresh breads served before our meals were perfect - and warm! I ordered the quiche special, which was served with a green salad and four - five pieces of fresh... More

My husband and I came here on our last night in LA. The service was excellent. Something that did surprise us was the food portions as it is not really clear by looking at the menu that they are tapas size. For the price, we did not think this was great value but the food was tasty. The atmosphere is... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
