Shuttle to Walt Disney Hall?

Ms. Dr. Oz and I are going to the Disney Hall tomorrow evening (Friday, 1/18) and want to have dinner somewhere downtown beforehand. Most efficient, of course, would be to park only once -- i.e., leave the car at/near the restaurant. I understand that a fair number of downtown restaurants provide shuttle service to and from the Music Center. Any recommendations, preferably (a) not a hotel and (b) not terribly expensive (since these concert tickets already set me back a CHUNK o' change)?

    Ciudad or Roy's might be good choices.

      We have found that the shuttle company that services Ciudad is less than reliable. They don't come around very often before the show, and they have left after the show without picking up everybody. Can't speak to Roy's. We've had reliable shuttle service from Cafe Pinot and McCormick & Schmick and Engine Co. 28.

        Roy's. I've used their shuttle to the Disney Hall on more than one occasion. It's reliable. And Roy's is my favorite restaurant in the area. Go with the $35 prix fixe, and you'll have a nice meal without (one would hope) breaking your budget. If you make a reservation, tell them you're going to the Disney Hall & they'll be sure to have you out in time. They're very good about that.

          the cafe pinot location is perfect, the food is good enough, yet the setting at sunset or just thereafter with all the hi-rise building lights on creates the perfect mood for an all-Beethoven evening. Enjoy whereever you go!

          You might try Pete's. They have a shuttle stop outside their restaurant for the Thursday evening art walk, so its possible the shuttle goes to the concert hall. Their food is pretty good and not terribly expensive.

            McCormick and Shmicks worked well for us.
