Weekend Beer

Great place to grab a beer at the weekend, parking is always difficult and its always busy but there is a nice vibe to this place. I dig it.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! You're better off eating at McDonalds

Once a bright spot on tourist alley (Hollywood Blvd.) the Pig & Whistle has become simply foul, and that covers both the food and management. Crap for service. Awful, truly awful. And they're trying to become some exclusive club on Friday nights, charging to get in (with rude, aggressive, goonish security guards to boot).

Save your money and avoid the headache. You're better off eating at McDonalds two blocks down.

Wow. What A Scam.

This place is a joke & a scam.

I don't know why so many others here rave so much about the architecture--This place looks just like any ordinary Irish/British dump you'd find in Boston, NY or Philly. At least the dumps in Boston leave you drunk and full.

The happy hour drinks were limited to draft beer & 'well' drinks, which for some reason didn't include martinis... just one shot of one type of booze w/ one mixer only. (other places count fake martinis as well drinks)

OK fin
...view moree. Fiance forewent his preferred Newcastle for something cheap, and I got a couple Cape Codders. Again, it was a one-shot-only of booze drink. Not much to tell.

The service was slow and bad, but that should be expected from a dumpy bar--No qualms there. The FOOD is the much bigger problem.

Fiance was starved and so ordered a cheeseburger- not on the happy hour menu. He said it was fine, but the price ($12 or $15 bucks??) was a little much for such a dirty dump.

I wanted to keep it cheap, so I got the 'chicken fingers' from the HH menu. I quote 'chicken fingers' because it was not chicken fingers.

This will be hard to believe, but --I swear-- it was ONE CHICKEN FINGER sliced in 4 pieces the size of a french fry.
I couldn't believe it! $6 for A SINGLE chicken finger???

Scam Scam Scam.

Never again will I be taken by P&W--Paying out $60 to leave still hungry and with no buzz is just not cool. A regular side of chicken fingers (more than one finger) and a cosmo at regular price from another establishment would have been cheaper, and more fulfilling.

excellent restaurant!

When my mom and I went on a trip to L.A, the girl who worked at the front desk of our hotel recommended Pig N Whistle, so we decided to try it out. I'm so glad we did! This restaurant was by far the best one I ate at on my trip to Los Angeles. I ordered the california nacho's, which were honestly the best food I have ever tasted. The plate they give you is huge and I could only eat half (and i can eat a lot of food). It was only about 10 dollars so it was a really good price. My mom wa...view mores also very pleased with the menu and also the service. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who plans to go to L.A. I can't wait to eat there again when my mom, my friend and I go back to L.A this march.view less

Great Hollywood Experience

After reading the previous reviews, I was hesitant to have our Valentine Dinner at the Pig N Whistle, even to the point that when we walking to the restaurant we almost chose the Italian Restaurant around the corner! I am very glad, however, that we stuck with our original choice. From the greeting at the door to the final taste of our delicious desert, it was first rate. The ambience of the restaurant is true old style Hollywood, the service was prompt and pleasant and the food wa...view mores delicious. I am not one to usually take the time to write a review, but this was a very good restaurant and the reviews I had read did not seem to do it justice. I appaud this restaurant, would highly recommend it and will definately revisit it in the future.view less

Excellent dining experience

I was in town on business, and my associates and I went to the pig n whistle for dinner. We were a large group without a reservation, but the hostess was very accomodating and arranged a table for us. The food was absolutely divine-- I recommend the ny steak or penne a la vodka, and definitely the chocolate molten cake or apple pie. The atmoshere was dim and alluring, and the space itself has gorgeous high ceilings and comfortable booths and is very reminiscent of old Hollywood. Our...view more waitress was a lovely young girl (whom my wife thought resembled natalie wood!) and she was completely charming and took the time to give us info. and directions even though she was extremely busy. We were also impressed by the manager (lucy?) who could actually speak to each member of our party in their native language (we are an international group)!\r
This was overall a wonderful experience, and we will definitely return whenever we are in town on business. Highly recommended!

By the numbers

Ok so the place has no cover, but parking is $15. Street parking is a nightmare, so be prepared to pay to park. A rum and coke is $7, a 7&7 is $9, a jack and coke is $9, a long island ice tea is $11.\r
The atmosphere of the place is quite nice. The bartenders are good looking. You don't have to wait for a drink. The booths are good sized, and there is an out door patio where you can sit as well. The dj was spinning all the popular club music, great selection and great transitions bet
...view moreween songs. There were plenty of guys there, so ladies show up. The wood floors make the place good for dancing. A bacholerette party showed up like an hour after we got there, and we had a blast because of it.view less

Best Meatball Sandwich in the world

We had the pleasure of enjoying lunch this past August. It was so memorable, we decided to write and ""brag"" about it. The service was quiet, and refined and the meatball sandwich was the best I had ever tasted. We would recommend this place highly. Thank you!\r

Never again!

Women, take heed and BEWARE! This place is ran by the most belligerent, beguiling management I have ever encountered. If you enjoy being called the ?b-word? and your race being belittled (by the staff), then by all means- this is your hangout! But, for all the beautiful women, and men, who are just really looking for a down-to-earth, all around good vibe spot- this is NOT the place to support. We work hard everyday out here and the last thing anyone should have to go thru is being ...view moredisrespected by people you are giving your hard earned money to. This place is a joke! Respect yourselves people, and each other.view less

Aside from the beautiful interior, what a nightmare!

It's close to the Egyptian Theater, which is great. It is beautiful inside, with big comfy booths. However, that's where the advantages of this place stop dead. I've been in before when the hostess wanted to seat us outside with people who had brought their dogs to eat dinner with them. I declined. Sorry, I like dogs and all, just don't want to eat dinner with them. Last night, I was seeing a movie at the Egyptian, so I thought I'd try again. The hostess was put out at having to do her...view more job. It was a chilly night, but she asked if we wanted to sit inside or out. I was adamant about wanting to sit inside. So, she seated us right in front of the open front door of the restaurant where it was cold! My boyfriend asked if we could sit in a booth. To this, she replied that she shouldn't since we were just two people, but when we looked around, all the booths were filled with no more than couples! She finally grudgingly seated us in a booth. The waiter was completely unfriendly. We ordered, then got the wrong food. No big deal, our correct orders came out a few minutes later, but my chicken was undercooked to the point of a health hazard. Our waiter never came by to see how we were doing, so I didn't even get the opportunity to send the raw chicken back to the kitchen. It's too bad that this place is run so poorly. It would be a nice Hollywood spot.view less
