Wilshire Royale Restaurant

Anyone know if the restaurant is still open? Thanks

  1. I was just there on Tuesday. It's a beautiful space and my shortrib dish was good, although the cotton candy is a bit de trop. I believe it's just called Royale.

    1. Yes, it just barely opened in December! It's not closed yet! In fact, it seems to be catching on. The dining room space is beautiful, and the lounge space up front is cool, though the layout is a little strange. The food is mostly very good. I have been for lunch on a weekday (deserted) and dinner on a Friday night (populated but not crowded yet). I highly recommend the filet mignon (it's delicious) and the mac and cheese side. The salmon is good though not extraordinary. The butter lettuce salad with the blue cheese dressing is very good, but ask them to go light on the dressing if you don't like your salad drowned. Had a manila clams & fetuccini at lunch (not offered at dinner), the flavors were tasty but there was too much oil. Tried the cotton candy at lunch (it's cotton candy... fun b/c you probably haven't had it since you were 10), and the warm cookies + root beer float at dinner. The float was good, the cookies were meh. Then 2 mini cupcakes came with the check anyway, and we were stuffed! I recommend you try this place, go for the steak, you won't be sorry. Oh, and our cocktails were well done, too. You wouldn't think it's hard to do a vodka martini, but you'd be amazed how some places screw it up... Go now, to help it catch on, and then you can say you were there first!

      1. Could you please give me the address. Thank you
