We made reservations here for a special dinner on our last night in LA and the night before my birthday (they even gave me a birthday card for an extra special touch). Our server Miguel was top notch and super efficient. The bread was tasty....Our meatball and polenta appetizer was just mediocre as we've had much better meatball appetizers elsewhere. My husband ordered the rib eye steak, which was good. I ordered the turkey a la king, which had huge white meat chunks and some dark shredded meat in a yummy sauce plus pieces of side bread to dip into the remaining sauce. This is a classy restaurant, so PLEASE dress the part or at least pretend you are classy for one night.More

Had been trying to get a reservation but had left it too long for our pitstop in Hollywood but luckily checked the night before we wanted to go and managed to nab what I assume was a cancellation! We sat in one of the booths;...the atmosphere was something else! Food was fantastic, although the portions are huge so order wisely! We took our leftovers home for the next day! Very much recommended.More

We came here after seeing the highly rated reviews from others. The steak was cooked perfectly with a charred outside which really made the steak taste amazing. We shared one portion of fries which were thick cut and very tasty. They almost tasted like English...chippy chips. It is a pricy restaurant however you get what you pay for with steak! 🥩More

It’s hard to find anything original these days, the Musso & Frank Grill is like entering a time machine and experiencing a something special. From the classic and seemingly untouched interior from 1919, the hardworking staff and of course amazing throwback menu, you will not...be disappointed, we loved this place.More

105 Years of Tradition (since 1919), the oldest in Hollywood If you're here as a tourist, you should come to a place like this with a clear feeling of a tourist destination. Even if it's a little more expensive than a local popular restaurant, the...tourist restaurant like this also presents big fun. It is the one Charlie Chaplin also liked and it is the first restaurant in Holywood with history and tradition. - Reservation essential. - It's a lot, so order a little bit - Valet parking available - I recommend you to watch the sunset at Greenpeace Observatory or Hollywood sign on the same day Waiters serve classic American fare & martinis to diners in red booths at Hollywood's oldest eatery.More

We had the pleasure of sitting at the counter and watching Grill Master Jose Gomez work his magic for about 2 hours. It was a treat. He was grilling steaks and fish and just look at the picture of the full grill. Meanwhile, waiters were...walking past him with the patients of a Saint because no one interrupts the Chef while he is doing his work. It's an experience you won't get anywhere else, but Musso & Frank. Go to the counter and watch Chef work while you have a terrific meal.More

Glad I tried it but not sure if it was anything amazing. I give the ambiance a 5 out of 5. Service a little slow but friendly. Food was good but nothing special. Prime rib was perfect medium rare and huge slab but kind of...one note. I could have used a much heavy crust of seasoning. Also says it was served with au jus which I did not get. I was expecting a little gravy boat of broth. Baked potato same thing under seasoned and could have used more butter. Creamed spinach solid. Honestly the $69 price for an 18 ounce cut and it being Hollywood was a fair price. I sat at countertop where you can see the grill master. Seats at counter are a bit crowded.More

It was worth booking, and admittedly we mentioned that it was a birthday occasion. It was soon clear that a few other diners were also to receive the envelope with a birthday message and the chocolate brownie and ice cream with lit candle as a...treat. A surprise to us: but the routine nature of it didn’t diminish the enjoyment thereof. ( The brownie was superb, by the way.) We chose to revisit this place on our second LA visit because we had before so much enjoyed the history, decor, details, and the excellent food and service. In an age when modern restaurants vie for tweaking and adding numerous (usually tiny) taste touches it is a joy to get a piece of fish beautifully grilled and unadorned with superfluous features. Thank you Musso and Frank for sustaining such excellent food and ambience.More

If you want to go to an epicenter of the Hollywood golden era history, Musso & Frank Grill should most definitely be on your list. To compliment the experience, head to a film screening or play at the Egyptian, Pantages or Chinese Theaters following dinner....Be sure to make a reservation well in advance here as it totally books up even on the weeknights as early as 5P. Don't expect to be able to just grab a table by walking in as even the bar/counter service is packed by 5:30P. The interior will take you back to Hollywood circa 1919 as it has never had an interior refurbishment. The service is outstanding and attentive and the menu is traditional steak house. As I don't eat meat, I ordered the Branzino ($40) which was served on a bed of Arugula and topped with roasted pistachio gremolata. It was just OK, not a big win in my opinion. The Wedge Salad ($18) was traditional but also not the best that I've ever had. The baked potato ($14) was as expected and perfectly roasted. The prices lean on the expensive side. Items really add up here including any sauce at ~$9 each which is pretty absurd at a steak place to be honest. A visit here is definitely a must but the return has to be earned. Valet parking located in the rear off Cherokee - 90 minutes validated free and then it jumps to $$$ immediately after. Keep in mind the surrounding area is pretty disgusting - far far far from the golden era of Hollywood. Expect to be greeted by the strangest homeless people on earth complete with strong stench of urine. Yes, welcome to Hollywood where they apparently could care less about image anymore. How sad.More

This is a great restaurant. It is old and it feels that way inside - in a good way - nostalgic. The service was excellent. The food was great - the server recommended steaks off the grill so that is what we did, the side...of Mac n cheese was superb. They have valet parking odd of Cherokee that is $14 with validation. Even though it is in one of the busiest and most touristy parts of town, it doesn’t feel that way inside. It is a little food escape from the doldrums if the outside world.More

I had my 71st birthday dinner at Musso this past October. I was particularly excited for this because my birthday is Halloween, and I could not get a reservation on that day for two years prior. Being a native New Yorker steak houses are important...to me and Musso had been one of my all-time favorites. Something strange happened on this night. When I pulled into their lot in the rear of the restaurant to valet it was the emptiest, I'd ever seen it. There was a big SUV and one other car at most. I joked with the attendant asking him "Can you squeeze me in". As we walked in, I noticed my car being driven off lot. Didn't make sense to me why with all the available space, but I was at Musso and felt there was no need to worry. The next morning when I noticed the damage on my rear bumper I emailed and then phoned Andrea Scuto the Maitre'd. The response I received was as expected "Don't worry I'll have my parking guy take care of you". Perfect exactly what I expected to hear, and that night the dinner and service did not disappoint either. I never expected to be told it didn't happen and totally blown off. It is the way they did not take responsibility nor do anything at all about the damage they caused to my car that has driven me to write this review. After many emails and calls, ultimately, I was bounced between a few guys at the parking company and basically lied to, made to feel like I was fabricating the story and then blown off. In my opinion when you place something of value in somebodies' possession and they are a reputable establishment you expect much more respectful treatment than this. Be forewarned.More

Musso & Frank is an old Los Angeles, and specifically Hollywood icon, one of the most significant holdouts of an earlier era in a massive city which has lost so much of its earlier heritage. This restaurant, in business since 1919 and the oldest surviving...in Hollywood, has changed very little in aesthetic or cuisine over the years. It has a classic old decor and feel, with bar, counter, partly open kitchen area (where you can see their steaks grilled), and numerous booths and tables. There's a lot of dark wood paneling, old frescoes, and more. We have been here several times and always go here at least once whenever we're in Los Angeles, and we have never been disappointed. Waiters wear red jackets and black bow ties, and have done so for years. They provide excellent service. Food and cocktails are overall excellent and very traditional. This is not fancy or avant garde food, but old-fashioned traditional food done well, with dishes remaining unchanged for decades. We particularly love their steaks, their sweetbreads in sauce meuniere, their baked potatoes, potatoes Lyonnaise, and salads. POrtions are large and given everything, the prices are reasonable. Cocktails, such as the traditional Vieux Carre (our go-to drink there) are excellent. To top it off, this place periodically is used for filming in movies such as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Bosch, figuring prominently in both. Fans of those will enjoy that as well.More

This is an old classic Hollywood restaurant. Everything we ordered was terrific. Two of us had the prime rib and it was huge and cooked perfectly. One had the oyster stew and it was brimming with plump oysters and was so tasty. The service is...perfect. Parking is behind the restaurant and is $14 if you get the ticket validated. Otherwise it is $25. You need reservations because they are very busy.More

Have always wanted to try this restaurant but was a bit worried if it would be worth it. We were pleasantly surprised and loved our meal and the historic dining experience! We were seated in a front booth promptly at our 8:30 reservation time. We...were greeted warmly but the front desk too. Classic cocktails arrived promptly. Excellent service and we all enjoyed the meal of prime rib, rib eye, cap of rib eye (delicious and had never heard of before, tender and much more flavorful than fillet minion) and enormous baked potatoes and delicious mushrooms. Steak was perfectly prepared. All in all a nice festive dining experience! Will definitely be back!More
