2nd time my wife and I have been here. Both times food was really good, well prepared and service was good. Great value especially with the discount coupon. We will definitely come back.

Be prepared to spend a lot and ignore the fact that this is part of the Wolfgang Puck empire. The food was really, really good and the service was top-notch. The portions were also very large so it would actually be pretty easy just to split an appetizer and a side if you want to do this one on-the-cheaper side as well.

The service here was spectacular! They took great care of our every wish and did a wonderful job familiarizing us with the menu and specialties. I highly recommend the Spicy Szechuan Beef and the Haricot Vert is unbelievable. Vegetable fried rice and lime meringue were both solid additions to round out the meal. The only dish that was only OK was the Tempura Ahi Tuna rolls, definitely not worth the price.

I've been coming here regularly since the late 1980s. By far my favorite restaurant in Los Angeles. I live 40 minutes away but it's worth the drive. The Shanghai Lobster is to die for, and the duck pancakes are exquisite. The Szechuan beef is also superb. This is Wolfgang Puck's oldest surviving restaurant, and for a good reason -- it's his best! Highly recommended.

Overpriced and underwhelming - two words I wish I didn't have to use to describe a restaurant! This is one of Wolfgang's oldest eateries, and it shows with its dated decor and lack of care in serving up food worthy of the exorbitant prices. The service is attentive, however.
