"Despite an OpenTable reservation and confirmation and THREE phone calls , when we arrived for our brunch for 12 people, no table was set and they were surprised to see us. It took 25 minutes to set the table, literally. Service was equally slow, which MIGHT be why the poached eggs were hard. About 60% of the orders were close to accurate, at best, 2 did not arrive at all and one had to be re-ordered three times. On the other hand, the bill was staggeringly high. I chose the restaurant because it was good years ago and conveniently located for a Sunday matinee at the Music Center. The best thing can say is that maybe it was not the worst dining experience I have had in LA in decades. Maybe."

"Was very excited from the pictures we found on Yelp and other sources. Little did I know most of the pictures were taken at the bar. I guess the bar was cool but dinner was not happening. Took 15 minutes to get our drinks, didn't even get offered water. Good had no flavor. I was actually really disappointed."

"We had a wonderful meal with great service here. The lobby bar at the Checkers Hilton is a treat as well. The only sad thing is that the restaurant was so empty on a Tuesday evening that it felt a little lonesome. Too bad, too! It's in a great location, not a bad walk from the Music Center, except for the climb back up Grand to get back."

"We ate at the hotel because we were staying there and too tired to look for another restaurant. If it weren't for that we probably wouldn't have eaten there because LA has so many great eateries. That said, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that the food was really good. The restaurant was quiet with understated elegance, ambiance and soft music in the background. Our server was very attentive. We both had a dinner salad with chicken that was delicious. We wouldn't hesitate to eat there again."

"This is my go-to place for business lunches or when I want to have an atmosphere that allows conversation without competing with a noisy environment. The service is very competent and efficient and you can get served in an hour."

"The food was so good and the service that I had to review. The main thing was that when I arrived for my reservation they said that the kitchen was closed. I waited with my date for 20 minutes before a manager told me that the place was open. I started the night a bit miffed but the food and service were so good that I still rate the place well. I was a bit surprised that the manager did not comp anything or make amends for the 20 minute wait with an open table reservation but this is in the rotation for pre-Laker game places to eat nicely on a date and the food is much better than the name Checker's make one think. This is not the fast food place of the same name. Possibly a rename would be a great idea for the quality."

"The main reason to dine here is the staff--including the valet parking crew. It is very quiet, outstanding for a small get together or business meeting. Heidi was our waitress, and what a friendly, competent and attentive person she is - also, her French is excellent.
Perhaps the regular chef is off on Monday - at least I hope that explains the mediocre food which, except for the steak, was edible but little more."

"The buffet was well presented. Enjoyed the seafood -- shrimp, crab, ahi tuna -- the selection of hot items, and the carvery. My mimosa glass was always refilled without asking our server."
