This place is absolutely excellent! I have been here nearly 10 times now and have yet to be disappointed. Their burger is amazing. I know gourmet burgers are all the crazy right now and if you are on board, you must try this one! They also have an excellent 2 martini special for only $5 (for both) around lunch time. The daily specials are not to be missed either and the atmosphere is relaxing and fun.

Pros: the burger, daily specials, lunchtime martini specials

Cons: parking, a little pricey

I absolutelely LOVE this new spot! I was recently there at a networking event and was blown away by the decor and vibe.

It's a very old Hollywood, meets New York lounge in the heart of Hollywood, minus the scene of the velvet red carpet.

Definitely recommend.

Pros: Great New Spot, Not Too Crowded (Yet!)

Cons: In Hollywood - Too Far For Me!

My girlfriend and I had a movie to go to but left ourselves over an hour to eat dinner beforehand. We walked past empty tables on the patio and were told that there was a 15 minutes wait. We patiently waited 20 minutes before being seated on the empty patio. When I asked about why we had to wait I was told that there were reservations ahead of our party. Interestingly none of these reservations seemed to show up. Then after they shut our heat lamp off I knew we'd run out of time before the movie and had little interest in giving these people my money. I get the idea of making people wait so there's a line at the nightclub, but at a 'cafe' is just silly. Never again.

Pros: The ambience is great, cool rooms to hang out in

Cons: Mysterious wait times for empty dining areas

My friend and I ate next door at Kabuki one night and when we were walking back to the car, we thought Cafe W as looked cute so we asked to see a menu. Two very friendly ladies greeted us and invited us in to see the place since they just opened, and gave us a little tour and invited us to sit down for a cocktail. I was pleastly surprised and found this very nice. We didnt end up staying because we just had dinner but a week or so later we decided to have a "girls night out" for drinks and came back! The service was just as great. The bartender was cool not to mention kinda cute ;) Kinda spendy (martinis are $13) but it what places aren't? The atmosphere when you walk is pleasantly dark and romantic with a vintage 1920's feel. Its very large and is great for a date, girls night out like what we did, or with a group of people. I loved it and we're planning on coming back more often!

Pros: Great customer service, good drinks, good vibe/atmosphere

Cons: I couldnt get anything from the menu. Not Vegetarian friendly at all! :(

with a friend at her bachlorette party. we decided this place at 1am. we wanted to go to a place that was more upscale than ihop or tommys or in-n-out! this was a fun and funky place. we ordered steak tare tare/ asparagus salad/ frisee salad and french onion soup i think a cosmo and 1 evian. it was kinda pricey but everyone was happy with their selection nevertheless.
partons there are pretty good looking and so are the staff. they are very friendly and even have a patio!
last nite another friend and i went there for drinks after a FUNCTION and he thought it was really nice too.
i love that they have a full menu til 2am...they have live piano music and the owner and chef walk around greeting people
