Musso & Frank Grill
The Musso & Frank Grill provides an authentic Old Hollywood dining experience "one would have received in the early decades of last century."
Musso's is a Hollywood staple boasting classic ambiance and decor, reminiscent of what it looked like when it first opened 100 years ago.
Your taste buds will be in for a treat with a classic menu including daily specials such as Homemade Chicken Pot Pie, Bouillabaisse Marseillaise, or Duck Confit.
However, the steak, chops, and roasts are the meals that beckon us. They also have an extensive selection of seafood dishes such as the broiled lobster tail, scallops, or fried shrimp.
Additionally, guests can enjoy an extensive wine, liquor, and classic cocktail menu.
"You can't go wrong by going to Musso & Frank. There's a reason it's been there more than 100 years. Primarily, it's the food. I almost always have salmon but ordered the chicken parmesan last night. It was excellent." - OpenTable Diner from Los Angeles, Dined on Feb. 2nd, 2022.

"Beautiful atmosphere, great drinks, and food. The ambiance is just so beautiful at this restaurant. The service was excellent. Started out with their warm bread and a beautiful tapenada. We shared the carpaccio. Totally delicious. We moved on to the arugula salad with shaved artichoke hearts and a lemon vinaigrette with freshly shaved parmesan. So good! And we finished off with the pappardelle ragout pasta. I love this restaurant and will definitely be back." - Auntie-Irish, Los Angeles, TripAdvisor.
