OMG- This is THE WORST restaurant in LA. The food-terrible, service- OMG terrible, we returned ALL of our main courses (there were 4 of us and each one got something different) and they've charged us for everything!! I'll never go back

This is LAX's restaurant situated in that big white structure that's the focal point of the airport. I was rather disappointed in the selection of food. As a vegetarian who eats fish on occasion, I did not find much to eat. The prices are a little on the high end as well. The atmosphere reminds me of a giant lava lamp...which is a good thing! The view is good if you're facing the windows and watching planes take off and land.

I'm so sad that this restaurant is under construction because it is so beautiful to look at when you fly to LAX. Oh and not to mention their service is great. Absolutely first class.

I have been here many times. It is a perfect place to meet someone who has a layover or to have a good-bye cocktail before your friend departs. The valet is right out front and they are quick in taking your car. The food is pretty good,

Pros: Awesome view, great atmosphere, great food

OK, to be clear, the food and the extremely expensive drinks were not horrible, although Rich's dinner was way oversalted, a complaint you don't hear from him often! Our beef and pork entrees were competently prepared, but many items were

Cons: , prices, bad service

Sure it's in the middle of the airport but what a cool view you get. Feel the nostolgia of the lava lamps and the cool trendy effects. The elevator ride itself begins the immersion into the whole experience.

Decor is fabulous. Food is terrible and extremely overpriced. Go for sure if you have a layover, but just get a drink, and get McDonalds for dinner.

This is a great restaurant to go to if you've got a late flight at LAX and want to grab dinner beforehand. Really cool atmosphere inside with a great view of the airport lights at night. I thought they were going for a Star Trek motif

A very cool place to hang out after the midnight crowd has left for home. This is when the party really begins.
