Great place to stop in for a slice - their variety can't be beat! Small, hole in the wall pizza counter with limited indoor seating and a fairly large outdoor patio space. They have a ton of slices ready to go, varying from veggie to pepperoni to sausage to margherita. Lots of options, if you want it, you'll find it. They even have sicilian slices! The margherita slice had a crunchy, thin crust, topped with tomato-forward flavorful sauce. Though I wish the cheese was thicker and meltier, I was happy with my slice.

Cute place with your standard American fare and lots of options for everyone. I particularly enjoyed the Thai steak and noodle salad, which they were more than willing to make for me without the noodles. Lots of fresh flavors and ingredients.

YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM! Delicious Korean-inspired burritos. Even better, they'll make it without rice! Get the spicy pork kimchi burrito, you won't be sorry. Full of fatty, spicy pork, spicy crunchy kimchi, soft and sweet kiwi, chunks of cucumbers, and sprouts. A great combination of flavors and textures that leaves you beyond satisfied. 4 stars as the burritos are a bit pricy, but it's enough food for two meals. Don't miss the hot sauce!

Certainly a fun place to spend an evening. Very over the top performance of food, which creates a great atmosphere, though just ok food. Table side caipirinha: 4 stars. Super fun to order, the waiter comes table side to do a show of liquid nitrogen as he makes your frozen caipirinha. Not as boozy as expected but delicious and the frozen version is a fun take on a classic. Caviar cup: 3 stars. Rich, crispy, creamy, and delicate but at $10 each, not worth it. Tuna ceviche & avocado roll: 5 stars. Very fresh tuna rolled in creamy avocado. Crunchy coconut on top brought some texture, as did the jicama inside the ceviche. Sea urchin steamed buns: 4 stars. A bit too much bread to stuff ratio, but otherwise delicious. Soft and salty uni on top of creamy avocado with crunchy tempura flakes in the middle and a solid kick from a slice of jalapeño. Not your everyday caprésé: 3-stars. Cherry tomatoes with liquid mozzarella and basil pesto. It was all the right flavors but I didn't love this modern take on it, as my favorite part of a caprese is the texture of the mozzarella. I did like the idea of pesto instead of basil leaves. “Philly Cheesesteak”: 4 stars. Airy bread filled with cheddar and topped with wagyu beef. Think the consistency of cheddar in a jalapeño popper and these "sandwiches" were super stuffed with it. The beef on top was thinly sliced, rare, with just a touch of salt. Very rich, one is plenty. Grilled Spanish octopus: 4 stars. Served slightly charred with cherry tomatoes and caramelized onions. Very tender, almost to the point of being mushy instead of just tender, but the flavors came together nicely. Overall, this was a fun experience but I wouldn't run back. The food was a bit hit or miss for my taste and at the price, I can't justify it.

A lovely hotel in the heart of Rodeo Drive. I spent a long weekend here and really enjoyed my stay. The room/hotel itself is fine, 4 floors, a little tired in the interior but they're trying to stay fresh with tablets in every room, nice TVs, etc. The best part is the social scene they promote - there's breakfast in the lobby every morning, little bites around midday, and snacks and drinks at happy hour. There's a daily fee for the extras, but I thought it was well worth it.

Convenient location, quick food prep, friendly service, good value, solid food. I checked this place out midday on a Saturday and I was happy to see it was less packed than the surrounding places. I got a lamb & beef gyro wrap, which came out to about $8, and arrived quickly a few minutes later. The sandwich was a good size, more than ample for lunch. There was plenty of meat, though the meat was a tad dry, and while the sandwich was stuffed with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion, and tahini, I got mostly lettuce. I wouldn't have minded some more of the other stuff, in particular, the onion and tahini. The sauce served on the side was like a spiced tahini and the hot sauce, served on every table, was on point. I'd come back here for a quick lunch in the area.

A fabulous place to sit outside on a warm evening, enjoying some small bites and wine. I recommend the charcuterie and fromage plates, as well as the foie gras.
