Restaurant Suggestion -Great food, great holiday ambiance - preferably westside

Heading to LA the week before Christmas and want a festive place with yummy food to celebrate a holiday meal before returning home. There are lots of options on Christmas but we're looking for something before Christmas. I'll be with my family (2 boys - 6 and 8 who do pretty well in restaurants as long as they aren't super quiet ones!) and adult sister. Hoped for Tam O'Shanter because of the carolers and great holiday feel but of course they're all booked up. Can anyone think of any other options? Budget isn't a huge concern as it's a special occasion. I'm thinking I'll aim for a weekday night for best chance of availability. Any suggestions?

  1. How about Lawry's? Also, did you call the Tam or do Open Table? I've called, asked for the manager and begged (lol) and it's always worked, especially for early dining.

      I did call but just talked to the hostess... I'm not beneath begging! Thanks for the tip!

        Let me know how it works out. There's a reason they have been around since the dawn of time, customer service:)
