QUIET, but awesome restaurant for my parents 49th

Help! I'm coming to LA for my folks anniversary - and they are not being helpful with selecting a restaurant. "Everyplace good is too loud." Aside from the Bistro garden (their regular go-to) does anyone have suggestions???? DInner is Thursday- so i need to book soon. THANKS!

  1. Take a look at Saddle Peak Lodge. Great for special occasions.

      Big fan of this place expecially for occasions. Try and get the first floor. Best ambience and convenient.

    2. Hi... Consider Josie (in Santa Monica, on Pico blvd.). Quiet, tasteful and tasty...

      1. Dining Room at the Langham Hotel

        Saddle Peak is also another good option as mentioned above, except the drive can be quite a hassle depending on where you are coming from.

          Second the Dining Room at the Langham. Very quiet, lot of space between tables so you don't feel the crowding effect of diners around you. Great food and service.

          Here's a recent thread, including my review:

        2. price range?
          i suggest Providence.

            Westside Gal will say this and she is always spot on, but I am going to beat her to the punch and suggest Cafe Del Rey

            Cafe Del Rey
            4451 Admiralty Way, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292

          2. You might look into Ortolan

            8338 W. 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90048

              Oh,. Ortolan is wonderful, and will surely be quiet on a Thursday evening. You will probably have the place to yourselves!!

              1. re: Servorg

                Excellent suggestion and Ortolan is now offering a special three course menu (with choices) for $40 Tuesday-Thursday in addition to the regular menu and the two tasting menus.
