Los Angeles Restaurants Overview
L.A. restaurants include Mexican food, Chinese food, Italian food, Indian food, seafood, Japanese food, breakfast, sushi, Sunday brunch and more. Whether it be the enormous portions, outstanding views or unique flavors, these restaurants are sure to please.

Go celebrity spotting at The Ivy in Beverly Hills. Enjoy award-winning clam chowder and a Mai Tai on the beach at Paradise Cove in Malibu. Grab a cheeseburger and fries in a vintage railcar at Carney's on the Sunset Strip. Savor some of the best seafood in Los Angeles at the Water Grill in downtown. Hop aboard the Queen Mary ocean liner for a fine-dining experience and a view of Long Beach at Sir Winston's. Enjoy a Buffalo Burger and a view at the Avalon Grille on Catalina Island.
