The Hollywood area has endless dining choices. To help guide your family to an enjoyable experience, try one of our Trekaroo-tested and approved restaurants.
Where to Eat in Hollywood – Lunch & Dinner Options
With nearly 100 years of restaurant history in Hollywood (opened in 1919),Musso & Frank Grillis a must-try when checking out the Hollywood dining theme. It is hard not to feel the old-school Hollywood vibe when sitting in booths previously sat in by Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, Jimmy Steward, and so many more. The restaurant serves a fairly sophisticated crowd, so only well-behaved, older kiddos are recommended.
Located in West Hollywood,Rokuoffers an up-scale dining experience that is both fun and interactive for the whole family. Trekaroo recommends you pass by the tabled section full of posh diners & business class to head straight to the Teppanyaki dining room where an experienced chef serves up your food tableside with passion and flare. This isn’t Benihana, and your taste buds will be grateful (think Nova Scotia Lobster Tail with uni butter and Filet Mignon with foie gras and truffles instead). Your kids will be entertained throughout your paced-out meal, and the kid-friendly menu was a hit with every member of my family.
TheRooftop GrillatThe Montage in Beverly Hills, offers delicious classics turned gourmet. The Baked Salmon is especially delicious! The Rooftop is family-friendly but the Montage has a kids program for lunch at the Paintbox (onsite kid’s club) – kids can enjoy lunch, story time, and crafts. Take advantage of the Paintbox and enjoy a bit of grownup relaxation!
The Front Yardis an oasis set in Hollywood. It is a regular stop for locals and those in the film industry. The Front Yard has several dining options: outdoor patio, main dining room, bar, and private rooms. The restaurant is close enough to stop by after a day at Universal Studios and is a great escape from the hustle of the park.
Where to Eat in Hollywood – Treats & Dessert
Disney’s Soda Fountain and Studio Storeis a fun stop for family while visiting Hollywood Blvd. The Disney Soda Fountain offers a full menu including Ghirardelli desserts. Kids will love the Disney-themed room and shopping throughout the store. Parents will enjoy the excellent standard of dining that accompanies the Disney name.
自蛋糕冰球开始以来已经有几年了，但它仍然是孩子们。看看现象始于访问的地方撒上蛋糕in either its Beverly Hills original store (with thrilling cupcake ATM machine!) or its smaller stand at The Grove. Allergy-friendly options are available, hooray!
