Musso & Frank Grill
Open since 1919, this classic restaurant was long the bastion of Hollywood industry power dining. With the look and feel of a private Men's club, Musso & Frank Grill rose to fame in the Golden Years of Hollywood, when Irving Thalberg, Clark Gable and the Marx Brothers were among its most celebrated clients. Nowadays, it is still considered the home of the finest dry martini in town. The Filet Mignon is hard to beat and the service is perfect, with just a touch of attitude. If you are not in the mood for beef, try the succulent lobster and the rich, heavy desserts.
What a great experiance, food was great the service terrific like going back in time. The fresh ice tea was a treat served from silver tea pots, reminding me what true fresh tea is suppose to taste like, we ate lunch and it was hearty full plates of food. It's a fun stop, next time I'll try the martini and filet!
My wife and I went here at my insistence. Service was extremely slow. Waited almost 45-50 minutes for food to arrive. Others came after us and were served faster. Food overpriced. waiters bored, indiffernt and unattentive. ok to come to say you saw it but would never eat here again.
I thought the food was excellent, the service was great, and the interior was just what you would imagine a restaurant to be like 60-70 years ago. Musso & Frank serves old-fashioned American/Continental food. The menu definitely has the flavor of years gone by: Corn beef and cabbage (on Tuesdays), shrimp cocktails, Welsh rarebit and jellied consomm and chicken pot pie (on Thursdays). Steaks are always good here and I like the fish and chips a lot too.
We went there last night, had tickets to see Wicked at the Pantages, and we were VERY disappointed. The waiter was VERY rude, we asked for 2 ticket for our group and he marched off..... and then tried charging us more on our ticket then the prices were on the menu (on several items). I have proof because I took a photo of the ticket! The food was tasteless and luke warm. We were all very sorry we went there.
I had tickets to the Pantages Theatre and went in search of a place to grab dinner close. Musso & Frank Grill is about 6 blocks west of the Pantages Theatre. The table clothed tables and Old school feel was nice. The portions were large! Service was just ok. The used absolutely NO SEASONING. NONE! So bring your bottle of Hot sause... lmao
Just love this restaurant! The atmosphere, the decor, the 'old world charm waiters' (or not, but that, in itself, is the charming difference at this place. The food is good, old fashioned home cooking and 3 of us recently chose the Thursday lunch special which was Chicken Pot Pie and it was to...........die for. Musso & Frank's is unique in this day and age and especially in L.A.
Plenty of on site parking. Restrooms: definitely worth a visit!
