    Great ambience. I love the calm, quiet tranquility of the place. The fairy lights, the palm trees, that shallow pool in the middle I live it. Friendly accommodating staff. No wait at all for my reservation. I was seated immediately. I ordered the Baja shrimp. The shrimp was amazingly delicious. That rice that came with it was DROWNED in whatever sauce they used. It was like mushy. Didn't like that at all so ai basically paid $30 for like 5 pieces of shrimp because the shrimp was all I ate. I was too tired to make a fuss about it I was just ready to go home and go to bed but had I had the energy, I would've given it back after the 1st bite and ordered something else or ask them to try again on the rice. Otherwise I would have given 5 stars across the board

    Food was great! Service was excellent! However there was a power outage at the end of our meal. We were asked to manually pay - leaving our credit card information to be charged when the power came back on. This was concerning ........

    The hotel and restaurant are beautiful. The setting feels Mediterranean and classic LA-esque all at once. The wait staff is courteous and very generous at the requests of demanding and entitled guests. The food was lacking in flavor. We tried a few brunch dishes but nothing was well seasoned, everything was bland. The drinks were good, but of course, heavily priced. Some drinks cost more than the food entrees, but what else can you expect in a trendy LA restaurant. Go lounge and take in the setting, but don’t stay for the food.

    This was the first time at this BEAUTIFUL, SERENE and GORGEOUS restaurant. I actually brought my youngest daughter here for her birthday, although we already celebrated her birthday, I do wish we did it here first. The venue itself, I can’t even explain how beautiful this place is. You’d never know that you were surrounded by other buildings and you’re on a main road. So gorgeous - love it! The food was so tasty and delicious. You need to have the Warm Baked Banana Bread, just do it as an appetizer, yes- desert before your meal. Why not, right? I also recommend the Lemon Pasta along with the Arugula Salad. Simple meal, yet so delicious. Loved it! We also had the Avocado Toast, new to me, made with mozzarella. Ver good. For desert we had Hot Sticky Toffee Pudding with Mascarpone Cream, it was actually a cake and not a pudding. It was good but a bit sweet due to the caramel. Our drinks was the Spicy Mango Margarita, Strawberry Champagne and Hollywood Spritzer. All very good drinks. When we first arrived, we got there about 8 minutes before our reservation time, we were told to sit down or go to the bar. Something pretty smart so you can take in the beautiful venue. The bar area was so pretty, felt like I was in a garden. Once we sat down, we waited for more than 5 minutes before our server came to give us water and ask for our drink order. That was the only downfall. Otherwise, I loved that they didn’t bother you too much, but still attentive especially when they saw that your water was low. After placing our food order, the food came out so quickly. We later placed our desert order, that too came out quickly. This place is a real hidden gem and I’m glad I was able to discover it. We will certainly be back, we do love this restaurant. And just maybe I may do a staycation the next time I come to visit our daughters.

    The restaurant is very pretty. There is water in the middle of the restaurant. You can take many nice photos. There are many choices in the menu. Food is delicious. There are pretty looking cocktails. Many wine choices. Finally, customer service is excellent. The general manager Marie was at the spot. She took care of us very well. I could tell she was working hard to make everyone satisfied. Our server was very kind too. I want to give five stars to this restaurant.

    This was a very unexpected great discovery while searching for a place to have dinner after driving up to Griffith Observatory. You would never think that Cara could be as beautiful a setting given its location along busy Western Avenue, but as soon as you walk through the doors of the hotel/restaurant, it transports you to a bygone era of glamour and chic. If you are looking for a beautiful patio setting, look no further. Great service, good cocktails and good, well-portioned food. Definitely would return next time I'm in the area.

    Absolutely AMAZING customer service. Giovani was so attentive and sweet. The drinks, food and ambiance were spectacular. Don’t let the location fool you. Once you step into this hotel you are transported to a pristine white sanctuary and you completely forget about the hustle and bustle outside. Valet is also very affordable at $13. Way better than looking for parking. We will be back many more times! Thank you!!

    Great old Hollywood vibe with tables set around the courtyard pool and palm trees. Do NOT pass on the lemon pasta - seriously delicious! The service was professional not precious, the servers were friendly and knowledgeable, the food was delicious. Valet parking was easy via an app to recall your car. Great place!

    the setting is beautiful, but on a super hot day, it would help to maybe have cold water "misters" all over the patio to cool people off?
