French Restaurant

“Another great atmosphere! Decent French restaurant, but we go for the drinks and atmosphere. Make reservations because it gets very busy! You can always grab a pre dinner drink whether dinner is there or not and the bar is a bit hidden and has a different entrance.”

“Cool trendy spot in West Hollywood! Beautiful people, cool setting; Inside can get really loud, try to get an outside seating, you will love seating under the stars, lights, and trees. Best to order Lollipop Sprouts and mushroom pizza (share with friends)... so good!”

Gastropub
$$
“Mohawk Bend is located in a retrofitted 100-year-old silent movie theater and is one of my favorite places to eat and hang out with friends or just go by myself and have a pizza during Happy Hour. They have a ton of California craft beers & a delicious locally sourced American menu with options for all diets. They have a great Happy Hour during ~ Mon – Fri: 3 PM – 7 PM ~ Fri – Sat: 11 PM – Close ~ Sun – Thurs: 10 PM – Close. There is usually a wait during peak hours so I would recommend making a reservation unless you're visiting during HH. ”

Rock Club

Café
$$
“Housed in two historic bungalows, this cottage-like café serves large plates of gourmet American classics—with breakfast items served until 5pm, salads, skillet-roasted chicken, hot paninis and more—loved by locals. Brunch is one of the most popular times to see and be seen here, especially out on that killer patio, so be sure to grab Alcove’s very own chocolate bars and some baked goods from the pastry window while you wait for a seat. The adjacent Big Bar offers hand-crafted cocktails, craft beers and fine wines alongside reinvented bar food, not to mention some of the most fun themed beverage menus in town.”
