STK Los Angeles is located in the W Hotel in Westwood, the restaurant offers an elegant yet trendy ambiance, with a night club vibe. It’s also a fun place to meet up with friends. It offers large booths perfect for larger parties. Enjoy specialty cocktails such as The Cucumber stiletto, Ginger Mojito, The Secret Affair, Dirty Pearls, and more, along with a nightly DJ. On Saturday nights the bar stays open until 2:00am. But you can arrive a bit earlier for a late night snack, as the kitchen closes at 11pm.

The food is truly exquisite. If you love classic dishes, try to Gem Lettuce Caesar and the NY Strip Steak. The Tuna Tartare (appetizer) and the Ora King Salmon (entrée) and truly original.  Executive Chef Robert Liberato offers an eclectic menu, with much, more. Dessert is also sublime.

Appetizers such as seared mini Maine lobster roll, and Wagyu Beef potstickers will thrill your palate. Exceptional dishes such as crispy skin salmon and charcoal grilled NY strip steak will keep you truly satisfied. I enjoyed a meal a while back and adored the Local Black Cod. Don’t forget to indulge in the desserts…they are worth the calories! Check out my review on the Stories Page (under Dining/Drinking drop-down).
