Excellent as always; have now discovered the Tam for brunch. Server Diane was absolutely great.
This is was our first time eating at Tam O'Shanter. The food was great, especially the prime rib! Unfortunately, we got seated in this little room with several other tables that were filled. On our way to this section of the restaurant, there was a performance in one section that looked so fun! I wish we had been seated in that section, maybe the ambience would have been a little more exciting. I would go back and recommend this place, but just be sure you ask to be seat somewhere a little more exciting than a room filled with tables.
It was what I expected super old school and very pretty .
We have been to Tam O’Shanter several times before and this time introduced our friends to this restaurant. The service and food was outstanding and our friends were impressed with everything. We had a great time and really enjoyed our visit. Thank you for another great experience!
I'm a native of Los Angeles and yet although I'd heard of Tam O' Shanter for MANY years, I never knew exactly where it was nor did I ever bother to locate it and go there 'till just this past weekend. I must say I'm sorry I waited so long. The place, opened in 1922, is charming and welcoming. The food is traditional and well-prepared. Our server was outstanding in terms of friendliness and efficiency. So, nothing but positives. It's the kind of place anyone--of any age--would, I think, find cute and fascinating and inviting. So, don't be like me and wait 'till YOU'RE 66 years old! Go now! By the way? It's the place Walt Disney and many of his trusted associates apparently liked to go eat. That alone makes it mighty interesting, doesn't it?
Old time historic place with high end comfort food- I've been going there for over 40 years. The prime rib is the best in town.
My father enjoyed Tam O Shanter’s back in the 1960’ —for years we would hear about his favorite
Place to dine after law school. He still speak volumes about the prime rib. We really enjoyed the food
Tonight and hopefully soon we can bring dad back
To LA. The service and food was just as amazing as Dad recalled tonight! Thank YOu!
Was pleased to be at table 31 which was favored by Walt Disney and his team of Imagineers. Melinda was a great waiter and she was informative.
The food was delicious and rich and enjoyed by all. The drink menu is exhaustive and thorough, expertly made and satisfying.
This is a lively spot with excellent decor and attention to detail.
Everything was wonder, except we were seated in a corner and there was a woman sitting so that she was facing us and she talked so loud that her voice had nowhere to go, but directly at us
We were at Tam O'Shanter to celebrate our son's birthday. It is a charming restaurant, both inside and out. It's set up like a cottage with lots of different rooms to dine in. The hostess was so nice. I asked if Table 31 was by chance available (we had a reservation, but I hadn't asked for that table ahead of time). It wasn't. Our son was a little late; the hostess showed us to a very nice table. Turned out, it was Table 31! The previous diners had finished their meal and she remembered that I had asked for that table, but she didn't say a word! Our server, Melinda, was wonderful; very welcoming and friendly. We had cocktails before our meal; they were delicious. The deviled egg appetizer was a bit salty, but good. My husband had prime rib which he said was good, not great. I had the salmon; it was very good. Our son had the roasted vegetable dinner; he enjoyed it. The evening was topped off with their delicious trifle!! I definitely recommend this restaurant for the atmosphere, friendly staff (including the valets), and the food.
Lovely special occasion restaurant . Delicious prime rib, creamed spinach , and cream corn. Charming decor and good service . Have been taking the family there for special dinners for many years . Getting to be a bit on the pricey side however.
Great evening, good food and never felt rushed
Our first time at this restaurant. Great service, good food and fast valet.
One of a kind
Family dine out
Wanted the Disney table but someone else got it! Was put in a tiny booth! Not very comfortable. Usually enjoy being there but would have preferred a different table. I should have insisted! Otherwise everything was very good.
I haven't been here in many years. The quality of the food was not what I remember. The meal was just OK.
Great meal - good food, excellent service, easy to relax and catch up with an old friend.
The food and ambiance are wonderful here. I love the outfits worn by the wait staff and the Scottish decor. The tables and chairs are sturdy and the lighting is just right. There are several dining rooms that are large enough to keep from feeling closed-in but small enough to keep the conversation from getting competitive & loud. It's wheelchair friendly and there's inexpensive valet parking (only $5). The patio looks like it would be a wonderful place to eat for lunch - I must try that sometime.
Enjoyed another meal at Tam's! As always super tasty food, quick service and wonderful ambiance. Extremely enjoyable experience
We had a new waiter, David, who was fantastic! Very warm and friendly and a great sense of humor. Next time we will ask for David. Have gone to the Tam since the 60's. Our home away from home. Always happy with the food and service. Only thing was a new hostess took us to our seat in the corner. My husband walks with a cane and slow. She did not take his problem into account. We had to move the chair of the next table out in the aisle to make access and room for my husband. She also didn't wait for my husband to be seated and didn't give him a menu. Other than that, all was great!
Tam is always a classic.

Always a pleasure having dinner here. Our server Jennifer was great.
Go several times a year. Still one of the best dining experiences in LA. They've added a patio area and seem to have a invigorated staff of old and new people. There is no better prime rib anywhere I've ever been.
Nice atmosphere,friendly people and good food. This is what most people want when they go out to dinner especially if the price is a little higher than most.
Great food and service!!! The back story is wonderful and the staff articulated well!!!
Food was very good. Service was even better, our waiter I think his name was Xavier was very cordial and went over the history of the estabalishment. My friends and I were seated at the 'Walt Disney' table. Xavier showed us the etchings that Walt Disney carved in the table. Pretty cool.
I had a watery chicken pot pie. They should have called chicken soup.
This was the best dinner we have had in a long
Wonderful food and great service. Our family had been going to the Tam O'Shanter for years and it never disappoints. We love it especially the C.C. Brown's Hot fudge sundae.
Not only is this an historic tavern in Los Angeles, being the oldest continuing operating on the West Coast, but it is also an authentic Scottish pub, as well as an active and well developed Scotch Whisky curated bar. I was there for a Scotch Malt Whisky Society event, and had dinner afterward with my family. We all enjoyed the meal, and tried the filet mignon, the prime rib, and the Toad in the Hole, which is a Yorkshire pudding baked with a medley of vegetables, onions, and mushrooms with filet mignon cubes. All of these dishes were very good, as were the sides of the roasted baby carrots, the bacon wrapped dates and the onion rings. The wait staff were excellent and we were well taken care of. The ambiance inside is outstandingly old school pub, with lots of wood features and artifacts from by gone times. And by the way, this was one of Walt Disney's favorite spots for lunch and you can find his table under the Imagineers at the Tam poster!
excellent restaurant. suggestion to answer the mails sent.
The table 31 is my favorite drink and it was especially tasty this time around!
Disappointing, both food and service. Very inflexible on side orders with prime rub, prime rib portion seemed really small, burrata portion was also quite small. Waitress forgot our order, didn't pay attention to drinks or flatware. Just a disappointing meal all the way around.
Sarah, our server, was friendly and wonderful with our children.
I’ve been dining at this restaurant my whole life and have witnessed its trajectory from fancy to casual over the last 40 years. For the last 5 years or so the quality of the dining experience has declined markedly. Our diner on Friday was bad. I have had to reduce my beef intake for medical reasons and it was the first time I noticed how few choices one is given if you can’t eat their signature prime rib. The fish and chips were disgusting. The fries were literally soggy. My friend’s rarebit— once a house specialty was almost inedible— greasy and unappealing. I am so very disappointed. We had just arrived from the SoCal Food conference and I was embarrassed to have suggested this old favorite of mine to a group of foodies. The history and beauty of the restaurant remain. But the food is in bad need of an update!
Jennifer provided excellent service. I loved the beer and Scotch tastings. Dinner was excellent. The Scotch Rarebit appetizer was outstanding.
Perfect as usual. Miss not living in the neighborhood anymore, I used to be able to come more often. I miss the lawry's salt in the mail on my b- day too.
Again, Thank You,
you are perfect
As always the food was terrific... done perfectly as requested. The sides were great too. The entire meal was a pleasure.
