"Eating @ Ray's and Stark Bar is very convenient if you are visiting LACMA and it's much more formal than dining in the cafeteria in The Bing Pavilion. I dined with two friends for lunch on Saturday and was surprised that the prices seemed a little higher than previous visits. My girlfriend and I dined on the Quinoa/Kabocha squash dish for $24 while my other friend had the John Dory dish for $29/30. The portions were sufficient for us but for a man it may not be enough. The dining room is lovely and quiet with a view of the outside patio area. I still enjoy dining at Ray's and Stark Bar since the service is great and the location is very convenient."

"A great dining experience at the museum. Food is always fabulously tasty with taste combinations that delight even my husband. And I love that it can be part of the museum experience. As members, we can enjoy an exhibit or two without pressure and eat a marvelous meal in a cheery setting with Paul as our wonderful waiter and all personnel making us feel like family. It might be nice if they gave a bit of a break to members--even something small that acts like an incentive to make us feel we belong to the museum community. A 2 for 1 dessert if we contribute to a fund for school programming? Whatever..."

"I'd spent my summer at the museum walking past this place and wishing I'd eaten there. Finally took the opportunity one night when in the area. Pity it was a cold night outside as we opted to eat indoors. The outdoor area looks fabulous and very groovy. Ultimately though they left the door open for staff to walk in and out so it was only slightly warmer inside.
Service was fairly mediocre. I've eaten at plenty of different restaurants and seen staff behave in a much more friendly manner even at some of the most expensive in Beverly Hill or staff getting minimum wage. This guy clearly had little personality beyond an opening line.
Meals were nice but not anything mind blowing:). We did only choose the burgers and a pizza. It was a fairly classy burger which went the different route with an egg. I'm an Australian where this is a fairly normal thing to do. It worked well. Meat was beautiful.
However there lack of belief that any of their meals might require some seasoning left us having to constantly ask the wait staff for things. Firstly salt for fries and ketchup. The usual question of "is there anything I can get you" kept coming too late.
I drank a nice glass of wine but just the general overall feel from our meal and dining experience was left short. I would have to say our waiter was mostly the disappointment.
I would go back as the food wasn't really the problem. I'd probably go in the summer and then decide if the ambience can make up for the sad waiter.

"Food was overpriced and portions small.
Limited choices. Food did not live up to descriptions on Menu.
Bread is still good!
Our out of town guests were not impressed by the food or the high prices."

"My wife and I love to go to Ray's and Stark Bar, because of the great food, and the ever changing, distinctly different menu items.
While the menu is never extensive, there is something for everyone, and it is always interesting. Come here to educate your palate.

"a perfect way to decompress after viewing the museum's exhibits; unique and imaginative dishes served in a casually elegant space"

"I have been eating at Ray's and Stark Bar for years. The restaurant has improved since the change in chef and menu. The menu still has some of the dishes from prior management. My dining experience today, a busy holiday, was efficient, professional and properly attentive. And, to be clear, I only had one dish but it was a new, delicious and generous portioned dish. It was a beet "salad" with tasty goat cheese balls); very inventive frozen, crunchy horseradish clusters (made with liquid nitrogen); and purple basil. Terrific. My only requests are: 1. put a couple more vegetarian dishes on the menu; and, 2. please put one or two more in the style of the super inventive beet salad dish I described (maybe even vegetarian). Great experience today."

"This restaurant is a good concept, poorly executed. We waited 45 minutes for our lunch, and the food arrived barely warm. Zero atmosphere. High prices. If visiting LACMA, the regular café may be a better choice."

"I was disappointed that restaurant has gone away from its more recent heartier fare, more bistro type menu. I had been looking forward to charcuterie, no longer on menu. It's back to more foodie type offerings. Go back to bistro fare."
