    Go around the corner on to 2260 Westwood Blvd. and eat at Pastina just a couple of blocks north of Pico. You and your stomach will be pleased by this decision.

      Keep it safe and stick to something simple like a chopped salad.

        Grilled Vegetable Appetizer (you can have them leave off the oil and it tastes much better and crisper w/ just the balsamic)

        Leave the bread; it has an unpleasant sweetness to it, if you ask me.

        Chopped Chicken Salad-add eggplant and hearts of palm


        Sisley Chicken (I leave out the sausage and do over vegetables)

          A few years ago a friend took me there and everything stunk. Except the made in house Breadsticks which were barely ok! I would take Carter's advice if you can.

            I love their chopped salad with chicken. Definitely add the grilled eggplant for a treat. It's huge, so you can order a half order and be full. I also really enjoy their warm tasty breadsticks!

              When I read that you were going to Sisley my first thought was.....I'm sorry. Life is too short for bad food. The one here in my area is a bit pretension and upidy for some unearned reason. Take carter's advise if possible.

                I’m very curious, foodhappy. Were you intimidated by all the negative posts, or did you persist and go to Sisley anyway? What did you order? How did you like it? Would you go again? I ask because I am faced with a similar opportunity (actually, an invitation) to dine at Sisley in West LA this coming weekend. I have been told to avoid their pizzas and their dinner rolls, and to try their chicken marsala and their Caesar salad. Any help would be appreciated.

                  I've always liked the chopped salad, with the eggplant added, and the penne Bolognese with the addition of fresh mozzarella. Those two dishes are probably the only two I've ever tried at Sisley, but it's probably been at least two years since I've been there. When I worked in Century City we used to have office lunches at the Westside Pavilion Sisley sometimes, and I never minded going there as opposed to other lunches we had at, let's say, Louise's or Maria's.
