The Buggy Whip

For over fifty years, the Buggy Whip has remained a prime destination for fine dining in Los Angeles. The classic cuisine and even more classic atmosphere hark back to an older time, when dining was entwined with elegance. Diners may savor an old-fashioned cocktail before favorites such as aged Filet Mignon and stone crab claws, all the while relaxing among regal red leather booths while live piano plays every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in the background. Especially in trend-conscious LA, The Buggy Whip's reliability and consistency can be quite refreshing.

Excellent Food - but noisy and deceptive  

For our Christmas board meeting The Buggy Whip turned out to be a very unfortunate choice. They gave us a table right in front of the piano - even though they promised a quiet table when I reserved it explicitly for our board meeting - and in addition they tried to overcharge me $100.00. The food is excellent. Calamari appetizer was divine. The escargots are better in TAIX on Sunset - a french restaurant. The Filet Mignon was to order and tender. Five Stars for food and two stars for the dusty loud ambiente and a clear zero for trying to overcharge me $100.
