Rude management. Descent food. OK bar. Nice view.

It was my girlfriend's birthday and she was forced to make dinner reservations at 7:15 because the restaurant was booked with "reservations" for 8 o'clock. However, as 8:00 rolls around the place is COMPLETELY EMPTY with us and a small family of four sitting at the WORST tables in the house.

The management seemed to be very comfortable with treating diners like dirt, just because it was a saturday night and they had a line of like 3 people standing outside. Also, it seemed rather odd that a restaurant has a "No Birthdays" policy. Lucky for us though, our waiter was gracious enough to fixed us up a small dessert with a candle in it.

My advise, don't go for dinner. But i guess the bar is OK. Even though there are dozens of better bars to chose from in LA with better locations and friendlier service.
