Restaurants/lounges/bars with inside balconies

I am looking for any restaurant in the Los Angeles County area that has an inside balcony for dining. Any suggestions?

  1. Is it ok if it's on the outside but tented off?

    1. Taverna Tony's in Malibu has an upstairs balcony overlooking the main dining room.

      Also in the area is Saddle Peak Lodge, but I can't remember if the upstairs overlooks downstairs or not.

      Villa Lounge in West Hollywood doesn't serve food- it's a bar/nightclub but they also have an indoor balcony with tables overlooking downstairs.

      Trying to think of some others...

      Saddle Peak Lodge
      419 Cold Canyon Rd., Calabasas, CA 91302

      Taverna Tony
      23410 Civic Center Way Ste B1, Malibu, CA 90265

        Thanks! Villa Lounge sounds interesting and more in the direction I'm looking.

      2. Cafe La Boheme in West Hollywood has an interior balcony over the main dining room

        Cafe La Boheme
        8400 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069

        1. I guess I'm not 100% clear where the boundary is between an indoor balcony overlooking the dining room and just regular upstairs seating, but Jiraffe has an upstairs seating area that I would say is a balcony. Also, good food. :)

          502 Santa Monica Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90401

              Cicada, built in 1928 is one of the most beautiful restaurants in this city. Cicada's interior retains the original art deco fixtures, stair rails, and molded plaster ceiling panels from that period.

              Cicada Restaurant
              617 S. Olive St., Los Angeles, CA 90014

            2. La Serenata di Girabaldi in Santa Monica has an upstairs that overlooks the main dining room.

              La Serenata
              1416 4th St, Santa Monica, CA 90401

                1. Jinpachi in West Hollywood, not a bar or lounge though.

                  8711 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069

                  1. I'm not sure if it's convenient, but La Fonda on Wilshire in K-town would be cool.

                    La Fonda on Wilshire
                    2501 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA 90057

                    1. Xiomara has an upstairs with a wrought-iron railing overlooking the main floor-- is that a balcony? I'm not sure what's up there, though, if it's additional seating or a private room of sorts?

                      I was sad when Xiomara decided to convert from Cuban to "California" food, not sure I'd drive out of my way for that.
