"the hangar steak was an inch x two inches, a tough piece of meat; waiter never asked how I wanted it cooked and it came medium-well. My friend had the pasta and it was so dry it was inedible. The waiter never came over to see if everything was alright. My other friend had to flag down the person in charge to order a drink. The menu for dinner was limited and unappealing. I don't know what the rave reviews are about"

"Aside from the cafeteria, this is the only convenient lunch choice when spending half a day or more at LACMA. The menu is laden with unhealthy options--meat with rich cheeses or butter sauces. The pizzas were very good, though overpriced. The espresso coffees were also overpriced and awful. For the prices, the ambiance leaves much to be desired--rather cafeteria-like. Only worth considering if you want to have lunch while at LACMA."

"I'm not sure when it was that you have to order a lot of food for a server to be attentive. Our party ordered an app to share and a sandwich each but we weren't really there to drink alcohol and just wanted a bite. But it seemed like she didn't really care after taking our order. I had to ask for water refills and really only expect that at an Asian restaurant since they expect 10% for their bad service but good food.
But overall the food is very consistent and very tasty."

"We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. The French maitre was very friendly and led us to our reserved table. The waiter was not friendly at all. I was shocked when the menu was not even similar to the one I saw online. The waiter simply said they were too busy and that's why they had a different menu. We had a hamburger and pizza (since there was not much to choose from). The pizza was burnt and not nice. It's pricy for the quality of food we got. The waiter only came around at the end, like 5 times, kind of pushing us to ask for the check. I will not be coming back to this restaurant. It was expensive, the food was not special and the service was not nice. I will not recommend this place either."

"A friend and I met recently at LACMA before a trip to the Rain Room and because of uncertain weather, decided to have lunch at Ray's and Stark Bar. It was decidedly a poor choice -- the atmosphere is '70s airline lounge with formica tables and relatively uncomfortable, orange chairs. The place is not overly clean and the plates (aside from the pizza) are unattractively presented. I, for example, ordered a cheeseburger on a brioche bun cooked medium. It came on a small plate that barely fit the hamburger, looking like something slightly more inflated than a McDonald's burger, with no embellishment (no pickle, chips, etc.) The meat inside was not cooked. My friend ordered a pizza and asked that one of the two kinds of cheeses be left out when making the pizza as she wanted less cheese. She got a double dose of the remaining cheese, not at all what she wanted. However, it was attractively presented on a cutting board. The remainder of the menu had a lot of quixotic choices; my friend and I concluded that they were just "trying too hard" in coming up with their menu choices."

"Courteous, friendly, prompt professional service ... However the menu is pricey and a tad precious (a $59 beer?!), putting it out of the price range for casual museum goers (whose other meal option is a depressingly low-quality self-serve cafeteria, which also happens to be overpriced) ... This outdoor eatery is clearly targeting a well-heeled clientele -- the most affordable item is a small nondescript $19 burger (with no sides) -- but one can't help but feel that it undermines LACMA's attempt to democratize the arts appreciation experience... Still, it's an upbeat place to relax and dine during your next LACMA outing, if price is no object..."

"The food is really good, that's true. The service is faultless, also true. The price, though, doesn't match the quantity nor the quality of the food."

"I took a friend of mine to Ray's and Stark Bar for a Sunday brunch. It was the perfect way to spend some time people watching and enjoying delicious food and drink. We had the special strawberry lemonade mimosas with salmon tartine, Caesar salad, and chocolate tart with carmel sauce which was heavenly! Very thoughtful, attentive service. We will definitely be back!"

"I always enjoy Stark because you usually can count on a nice meal in a good location -- embedded within LACMA. This visit was somewhat disappointing as the service was a bit snobby which we really didn't need."
