love the steak and ambiance. good service and clean, It's a little expensive but I never leave unsatisfied. Not all my friends like it though, but it is definitely one of my favorite steak houses in southern california. Maestros is also great in Beverly Hills. Near the Staple Center if you want to go there before a game.

I haven't had a meal this bad in a long time. We got there after 8:30 pm on a Saturday when many people were finishing and the place was emptying out, so there was NO reason for the abominable service we received. We waited almost an hour for our food. No one even bothered to come by in all that time to tell us that there was a delay. The steaks were mediocre at best and there was no flavor. With so many killer steakhouses in LA, I don't know how anyone can give this place good reviews. Also, for what it was, it wasn't well-priced. My husband and I can go to Mastro's and split their large Rib-eye with 2 sides for less than we paid here, and the food is delicious. Sorry to be so extreme but it really was below average. Maybe it was amazing when Sinatra ate here but it seems to be living on it's past reputation.

I typically eat at Taylor's anytime I travel to LA. Their steaks are phenominal, the atmosphere is like stepping back in time and the service is exceptional. This place feels like the type of place you would be seen at 3pm sipping a martini back before we all started working 60 hour work weeks. I love it! The lunch menu is very reasonable for the quality and quantity of the meals. It's worth the drive if you're looking for something classical and well above-par.

I love this restaurant. It's old-school red leather booths, white linens, nice place settings. The staff is friendly, but not intrusive, and the service is great. My friend and I each had a great martini while we looked over the menu. My friend ordered the culotte steak, and I had the pan-seared tenderloin. Each was deliciously and perfectly medium rare. The meal started with a nice salad, and included mashed potatoes and a fantastic, creamy, nutty spinach side dish. We were so pleased with our meal. It was so nice, as the restaurant has that air of 1950s elegance and fine dining. Yet, we were surprised when we saw the bill. It's so inexpensive.....Just a lovely, wonderful place for dinner with a great atmosphere, great food, great service, and it won't break the bank in these difficult economic times to dine here. Go and enjoy it.

I went to Taylor's last night with three friends; we have all eaten there regularly over the past eight years, including birthday celebrations, bachelor parties, and casual dinners with friends. I have long loved Taylor's for its old-school decor, tasty but not overpriced steaks (I always get the culotte), delightfully cinnamon-y apple pie a la mode, and excellent martinis. Last night, however, our medium-rare steaks came out fully medium. Not the type to make a huge fuss, we sent back only one and asked for a replacement steak cooked rare; as anticipated, it came out medium rare. But the real problem was when the bill came: we had been charged for drinks we did not order or consume. It took conversations with at least four different people, including the hostess, bartender, server, and manager, before the bill was corrected. Arguing over false charges is not the way I like to end an evening. Between the overdone steaks and the tense argument over the bill, I don't think I will be headed back to Taylor's any time soon.

This is my first review!!! I had to write about this place! I went with a friend last night, and I'm here to tell you, the NY Cut was on point!!! I like my steaks well-done, and it was perfect! Our server, Hector(?) was a gentleman and was very attentive, though not annoying. My friend had the Pink Salmon, which she thought was delectible. I had a Grey Goose & Cranberry, which was nice & strong! Prices were a bit less expensive than those 'Hollywood/Beverly Hills' steakhouses, but that's it!!! Everything else from the cozy booths to the dim lights made me feel like I was about to dine with some of Hollywood's elite from yesteryear! I highly recommend this place!
