UCLA-adjacent restro-lounge overseen by "Top Chef" contestant Dakota Weiss is a popular brunch spot due to its California-casual menu and fruity cocktails.

Great ambiance – I went here to meet some clients and they just loved the place. The ambiance is amazing and the food is not bad too. The place is so relaxing that I forgot that I went there because of work. The staff was very accommodating. I'm definitely bringing my family for weekend brunch and Im really sure they will like the place too :)

Best Salmon Burger and Truffle Pizza Ever – Great decor and service.

Went there for an early lunch and ordered the Salmon Burger while my stepmom ordered the chopped salad with shrimp and we got my dad a grilled cheese and tomato soup to-go. Our food was made very quickly and was the greatest thing ever. The basil-caper sauce on the burger was the best and the bread was just burnt enough to be soft but crunchy on the sides. Since it's right outside the W Hotel, we came back that night and had dinner there. Then we ordered the truffle oil pizza and some sliders. AMAZING!

Pros: GREAT salmon burger, nice decor, great service, no waits, good food and coffee.

Cons: A little pricey.

Great outdoor area and beautiful decor – I went here for a few movie cabana nights during the Summer and shared a cabana with friends. It was a amazing experience. It felt private and exclusive. We were given great treatment...The food on the menu was AMAZING! THE NACHOS ARE THE BEST!

Great Outdoor Ambiance – Went to event at the W last month for Purista Mojitos. Was really a good time. Outdoor patio was relaxing and enjoyable and the Mojitos they mixed were quite good. Highly recommended!

Brunch – Honestly I loved their brunch menu it had something for everyone, plus they had their "hangover brunch" which was filled with spicy and amazing favorites that would cure anything. but really my favorite thing was the custom bloody marys...they come to your table and make it how you like it... the food is always perfectly cooked and the service isnt too overbearing. its so nice to be outside in the sun and having a meal just how you like it. Get anything on the menu with eggs, they are always cooked to order... as you can tell i go all the time its worth the drive no matter where you live

The tropical and upscale W Hotel poolside terrace offers cocktails, coffee and a light lunch menu perfect for summer. – In Short
Famed "Queer Eye" designer Thom Felicia has transformed the W Hotel's popular cafe-bar into a sexy outdoor lounge. The lush landscape of palm trees, bamboo and waterfalls offers an escape from the city rush. Located beside the hotel's pool, the casually dressed come to relax on colorful lime cushions or sunbathe on chocolate-toned lounges. Most come to sip signature cocktails including the popular pineapple and ginger martini. The simple and light American cuisine offers a great snack including the albacore tuna sandwich with a zesty aioli. Often prepared with local produce, the food is hearty yet light, perfect for those looking for a long Sunday brunch or a quick escape from work.

Agua Luca - Probably the best cocktail I have had – Finally a place that has an intelligent cocktail menu. Since my trip back from Brazil I have been searching for a place that serves a good caipirina. The W did their research and they have some ultra-premium cachaca that made a world of a difference...

The Agua Luca caipirinha is absolutely amazing. Do not visit the W without ordering one of these. Even the low carb caipirinha that my girlfriend tried tasted good too.

I have been to Brazil and until now there were no cachaca's that came close to what I was drinking out there. Agua Luca is the Grey Goose of rum. These caipirinha's were unreal.

The food and scene are incredible too. This is a great after work place or great weekend happy hour place to take a girl. Very cool scene.
