    It's obvious the location helps this place quite a bit. The vibe, service, and food are just mediocre but it's convenient for LACMA visits. I would never go here for any other reason. Very meh.

    The Friday free jazz concert, the experience of all the rainbow of people that is LA, the special care taken by Amour, the fabulous greeter, is second only to the delightful and delicious food and drink at Ray’ and Stark Bar. I recommend it highly and plan to go again soon. You should too.

    We always enjoy lunch at Ray and Stark's when we visit LACMA. Although it was Sunday the ambience was pleasantly low-key, the food was delicious and our waiter was friendly and attentive.

    Great night out on Friday for Jazz night. The location is excellent for people watching and listening to the jazz band. The drinks are well made and the menu includes a very nice selection of wines. The food is tasty and includes a variety of selections that is sure to please any foodie. The staff is friendly and professional and very knowledgeable.

    Wonderful location, and nice to have choice of indoor or outdoor. Food is a bit overpriced but very good. Great way to round out a visit to LACMA.

    Our salad and pizza were tasty and reasonably priced. A solid choice for sit down dining if you are visiting LACMA - I would definitely dine there again.

    The staff was accommodating and cheerful. The indoor space was also pleasant, it was a rainy day, we were glad to have the option. Everyone enjoyed their meals as well.
