A Hollywood institution. Musso and Frank's has been the watering hole of movie moguls, titans of American literature, rock stars, city politicians, and faithful locals. As much as I love the food, I come here to drink. Forget all the modern mixology, longtime barman Ruben has perfected the classics: vodka martini, gin fizz, old fashioned, and the margarita.

Career waiters serving stiff drinks, bloody steaks and legendary French onion soups make this place a destination for generations of Angelenos.

Oldest restaurant in Hollywood. Fun, antiquated menu with stuff like stuffed celery and Welsh rarebit. The martini is one of the best!

The oldest restaurant in Hollywood - going strong since the teens - the last teens, that is ... Known for old- school service, this is a great place to take visiting parents or a romantic date. Stick to the bar for pre-dinner martinis or an early nightcap.

Great place for drinks. Try the Dirty Martini with 3BAR OLIVE JUICE.

The food was okay but very forgettable. If you're looking for good steak I recommend Maestros in Beverly Hills or Newport Beach. You won't be disappointed.

Since 1919, the sign says. Hollywood's oldest restaurant, outlasting the other greats like the Derby and Chasens, Musso and Frank hasn't changed much in the last 93 years - except for the prices. Name a historic Hollywood writer or literary figure and chances are, they've tipped a few at the bar.

As for me, it's been one of my top three favorite restaurants in the world, since I was first taken there in the 80s. Now, each time my travels take me to Los Angeles, I have at least one meal at M&F.

The occasion this time was a gathering of friends during one of my business trips.

I was in the mood for "plan and simple classic", while the ladies wanted to slam down a few of the (reportedly) best martinis in the world. Having seen the bill (and quantity consumed), they must have been pretty OK.

I started with the classic appetizer, "Stuffed celery," which are stalks of celery slathered with a blue cheese concoction, sprinkled with paprika. At about a buck and a quarter a half stalk, undoubtedly the world's most expensive celery, but who cares?

Service was over the top, as always, and the plates on the table ranged from a ribeye, to crab louis, mushroom ravioli, and lobster ravioli?

And me, I had a dull roasted turkey sandwich. But they cut the crusts off the bread, if you find that exciting!

Want to be an insider? Ask for a "basked of butts" when you sit down.

Musso and Frank is great for a date night, and to ogle movie stars, vintage and current. There's almost always someone you'll recognize sitting nearby.

Lunch for five, with a cocktail each? About $250 with tip.

Incredible Service – Our service was great and the waiter was adorable. Ambiance was romantic and definitely recommended. For the music,,,I would recommend jazz or house and the people were cool. Portions were good.

Amazingly Snobbish – The service is either a joke or I'm amazed people like this exist outside of the movies. They actually do treat you badly if you aren't famous or don't seem to be wealthy. It's hilarious in theory. This place is kind of an embarrassment. Tons of better places that treat you respectfully.

Citysearch Editorial Review – If ever there was an “Old Hollywood institution,” this is it. The best seats are at the counter by the street entrance, but if you can’t score one of those, definitely hunker down in the clubby main room replete with dark wood paneling and private, high-backed booths where silver-haired waiters in red jackets serve smooth gin martinis in noticeably small, squarish carafes reminiscent of a time when drinking was more elegant and humankind had not yet conceived of "the bottomless margarita.” The menu is comprised of exactly the types of dishes one would associate with the ambiance and cocktails: all manner of meat cuts and preparations, potato dishes and green vegetables with and without substantial cheese. Frankly, the food is good, but that’s not really the point of Musso’s. Debate appears to rage among locals, tourists, foodies, bloggers and the like about whether it is a prized testament to Hollywood's golden era of delicious drinks, tasty steaks and beloved waiters, or an overpriced, played-out relic of the past with bad food, worse service and especially rude servers. Naysayers have apparently never managed to secure a perch at the counter to see convivial fixture Manny Felix do magic tricks for everyone from rowdy five year-olds to Ryan Gosling with equal aplomb, all while serving perfectly mixed martinis, well-cooked steaks and even dessert for diners unaccustomed to the restraint exercised by the Greatest Generation. In a refreshing local twist, the aged do, in fact, run the show here. So maybe it all boils down to who you know. And that’s an old Hollywood institution that’s never going out of style.

weird pompous waiters – hello,

I happened to go to the ...Musso Grill several times, the food is excellent - waiters behaved pompously "high nose" on public, what amused us very much : as members of the FRENCH EMBASSY in WASHINGTON, we noticed the diverse ways of services at MUSSO GRILL : celebs (as actor JAMES WOODS and his guests sitting next to us) : servile (SERVILE, OBEQUIEUSE) waiters ; no celebs : take that and eat !! we enjoyed and had a lot of fun anyway, FRENCH TOUCH OF CLASS...

Bah Humbug! – I went to get a job here a couple of times and the people there had the audacity to look down their noses at me with a pompous grin; the second guy actually laughed at me and said "you'll never work here!" And although that might sound typically French to you, it isn't true French. I can only imagine how they treat their employees there. Any place with a vain and conceited morale code will be the same way with food preparation, and people like that always lack creativity. I don't trust these phoneys and they'll never get my money.

Last Bastion of Civility – The previous critical reviews of Musso's are obviously written by charter members of the "Applebee"'s fan club, and I must admit I am delighted to see they hated my favorite Hollywood restaurant. If their distaste for classic style keeps them and the rest of their classless sweat pant and t shirt wearing brethren away from the hallowed booths of this fine establishment, all the better. We prefer to drink our martinis and eat our steaks in peace without the intrusion of any more of you mall dwellers, thanks very much. In future, I would recommend the McDonalds across the street.

Aweful service, way over priced food – I've heard so much about this hollywood landmark, but had i known how bad the food and service were, I'd have opted to walk through and just take photos of this relic. The waiters are over 65 and very rude and slow...god help them, they are old but the service was terrible. We got old bacon and tiny cokes for 3.50 a piece. When we complained about the bacon, the geriatric insisted it was fresh then we realized he charged us $13 for two cokes and it took forever for him to figure this out, fix it and bring us our bill. The menu is bizarre...$16 avocado salad? and a $40 roast beef sandwich? The rest is all old people meat plates...gross.
